First of all, thank you so much for all your compliments on my chandelier. It’s not my dream light fixture for the space, but I had it, so I’m quite pleased it worked out so nicely. Sometimes good design isn’t about whats perfect, but instead a mixture of what you already have, what you can find for a great deal, and a few element you are willing to splurge on.
For those of you who are asking to see more- I promise I will! I’m not trying to tease you with these peeks, I’m just literally in the midst of putting the rest together. Once something looks decently pretty, I’ll be sharing for sure. And occasionally, I may lean on you guys for advice,
Actually, I could use some help today. Do you guys remember my Eames Lounge Chair?
I toyed with the idea of going kinda crazy and reupholstering it in a linen or velvet, but at the end of the day I think this chair should be leather. Or at least vinyl.
I don’t have a lot of black in the apartment. Then again, I don’t have a lot of brown either. But I do have woody tones and an organic feel going on. Which makes me feel dark brown is better.
this one is too light, but I do like the vibe of the room

PS- I found this image while searching the interwebs. I don’t know if I’m totally frightened, or totally in love….
I walked into Tori Burch in the King of Prussia Mall on Saturday and saw this glorious chair…
** Does anyone know where I could obtain purple ikat fabric like this?? ** That would be awesome.
CORRECTION: As Anita so kindly pointed out, this fabric is Ikat, not suzani. Suzani is embroidery and Ikat is dyed. This is clearly dyed fabric in circular shapes similar to suzanis. Thanks, Anita!
(PS I knew that, I was just having a brain fart.)
I’m having a moment with skirted dining chairs. I just think they are the perfect companion with a chunky wood table. I adore that they are both casual and tailored. Since they have a softer, feminine edge to them, I really like them mixed in with more masculine elements. Wood, metal, and modern chairs are great companions.
Slipcovered versions can be removed and washed. Doesn’t get much more practical than that!
I really like this look: Skirted arm chairs on the end of the table, and different chairs used in the middle. The skirt is a great application here, because you don’t have two different leg types competing. (Three if you count the table legs!)
Friends, I must admit that I am frozen in my tulip chair upholstery project. I was initially ALL about a patterned cushion. I thought it’d be the perfect little pop of fun amidst a sea of white. So I picked out a fabric that coordinated with my new danish chairs:
