Chevron Fabric

Pin It

A pattern that dates back to 1800 BC, the Chevron print is becoming one of the most popular designs of today. Whether it is simple, or like the Nebaha Chevron pillow shown at the left, the chevron print can conform to any design scheme.

The simple inverted  V-shape was initially intended to show rank in military or police, but then the design was found in the palace of Knossos on Crete (modern day Greece). It became clear that this simple pattern has deep meaning and symbolism in many cultures.

F. Schumacher has a huge collection of beautiful chevron fabrics and wallpapers. As you can see from the photos, there are countless applications for these fabrics.

There are just so many fun ways to play with these patterns. Check out our Pinterest here to see what else we have come up with!

Silk Flower Arrangements

Pin It

Alright, this is a question that I debated for a very long time. Faux flowers...fabulous or faux pas?

It seems like a general rule in the world of design and fashion is "faux=faux pas". This is rarely the case when it comes to silk flower arrangements. Have you ever sat down at a restaurant and touched the flowers on the table just to reaffirm your assumption that they are indeed plastic? I have too. Have you ever gone into a luxuriously designed home and done that? Probably not. You will be amazed at how popular these flowers are becoming. They are so realistic, even down to the crystal clear solid water they sit in.

Whether you are going for the girly chic look or rustic and old-fashioned, flowers can always add a splash of color and comfort to your home. And the great thing is, you'll have them forever! No need to worry about allergies, rotten smells, or shedding petals!

Industrial Metal Dining Chair

Pin It

Did you notice how the industrial-chic look is so in nowadays? Well, it's been in for the last few years now, but we just got around to writing about it.  It's not easy to run a business and keep up with a blog, you know.  

Anyway, there is an interesting article in the NY Times about the firm that started this trend, you can read it here.

We like mixing it up a little with something soft to make it warmer and cozier, like the office/dining combination shown below.

The industrial metal dining chair can be found here.

Turquoise Garden Stool

Pin It

Did you see the December issue from Lonny?  If not, take a look at it. It's a bit thin this month, as most design magazines tend to be this time of year, but it has some beautiful features.

One of the items that caught our eyes is this turquoise garden stool.  This item happens to be our best seller and you can find it here.  If you do use it on hardwood floor, be sure to put a pad underneath it as these have rough ceramic underneath and it might scratch your floor.

Red and Pink Geometric Fabric Sofa

Pin It

We can't take our eyes off this image.  Mainly because the dog is so cute, but the second reason is that the sofa is so adorable. So often we do sofas in neutral colors because it's safe, but we think this fabric is great for a settee or an accent chair.

If you like this fabric, the pattern is call La Fiorentina by Lee Jofa

The pattern also comes in other colorways but this one is our absolutely favorites.
