One simple and tangible approach to mix things up would be to mix and match your accent chairs. Rather than two fully upholstered pieces you could choose one with a wood frame. Here are a few styles we love: 1) Basie - It's so versatile it matches any style 2) The Viceroy Recliner - A mid-century modern classic with height Want more options? Just ask one of our designers.

Furniture Inspired by Paris Fashion Week

Colorful Ideas, Design Inspiration, Designers
Last week was Fashion Week in Paris, where designers sent their latest Haute Couture looks down the runway. These designs are works of art and highly detailed, yet meant to be lived in, much like well-crafted furniture. Below are a few pieces that tickled our fancy, and reminded us of some of our favorite items that we carry! The delicate cutouts of this baby blue Dior look mirrored the scalloped details on our Summer Cottage Table! The colorful symmetry of this Jean Paul look also works on our Teddy Chair. This quintessential Chanel tweed get-up reminded us of the Tremont chair as their model glided down the catwalk. The house of Versace sent their metallic frocks down a lavish purple runway.

A shout out to my friend Lis over at blanksmith for exposing me to this gem! I will leave it up to you the reader, shall we classify this as "design inspiration", "designers", "the fun report", or maybe just "colorful"? Read on and then talk amongst yourselves, well talk to me too, I would love to hear it. I recently visited my brother and his girlfriend in Philly (I will leave the who picked a better city to live in debate out of this). We sat on the famed rocky stairs and counted how many people, in the span of twenty minutes or so, ran up the stairs and finished the climb by jumping up and down and throwing a celebratory fist pump. We counted 30, and then a school bus…
