Mid Century Wooden Barstool

Pin It

We love the idea of mixing wood with industrial material, such as stainless steel and stone tops.  Woods just instantly warm it up...

In this kitchen for example, the wooden barstools are mixed with a white modern top.  The contrast is terrific.

If you like this mid-century barstool, a similiar one can be found here.

The barstool is $450 with free shipping.  It comes in two finishes-walnut (shown here) and expresso.

Barbara Barry Fabrics- Simple and Elegant

Pin It

Barbara Barry fabrics explore drapery and upholstery in rich tones and an extensive range of textures. Her latest books focus on colors inspired by ancient Asia: “Golden and Fig,” “Lacquer and Blanc de Chine,” and “Silver and Lotus.” She has also included grasscloth wallcoverings to balance the tonal elements of these fabrics. When all of the awards and accolades are taken away, the most important thing is that Barbara Barry is truly known for her generous tendencies and authenticity; characteristics that define a genuine and passionate designer.
Barbara Barry is not only an extremely talented designer; she is an inspiring and heartfelt woman. Barry claims that her mother, “an amazing woman and artist” withstands the title of her greatest mentor. Her mother passed down her love for art and attention to detail as well as some of life’s most cherished values: self-love, humility and honesty. Barbara Barry’s designs stem from things that exist naturally in day-to-day life. She focuses on the qualities of lighting, colors of nature, and perfect proportions.
“As an artist, I see the world very much in
terms of light, form, color, and texture.”
-Barbara Barry
With international recognition for her elegant, serene, retreat-like designs, Barbara creates environments that capture the simplicity and timelessness of life. Her larger projects include the 6th floor of Brooks Brothers’ Manhattan Flagship Store, Gordon Ramsay’s Boxwood Café in London, the Avon Spa in New York, and the August Savoy Grill in London.
In 2005 Barbara Barry was named one of House Beautiful Magazine’s “Giants of Design” and Elle Décor’s international “Designer of the Year.” She was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame by Interior Design Magazine, included in Architectural Digest’s “AD 100” and House Beautiful’s “100 Best Desginers.”
“I live unabashedly for beauty...
both inner and outer and to me they are closely connected.”
-Barbara Barry

Chiang Mai Dragon by F Schumacher

Pin It

The Chiang Mai Dragon pattern by F Schumacher is probably our best selling fabric and wallpaper. Chiang Mai Dragon was originally derived from a 1920's Art Deco block print and has turned into a modern-day classic. This pattern has been featured in countless publications, used by tons of designers, and is consistently flying off the shelves.

The main thing I love about Chiang Mai Dragon is its versatility. Whether you use the fabric or wallpaper, it is such a great addition to any room. This chic chinoiserie print is intricate enough to pick up various colors throughout your space without overpowering anything.

See something below that you love? Well email us and we can do just about anything with this fabric. We would be happy to help. We can custom make ottomans, pillows, headboards, and pretty much anything you can think of! Here are some awesome ideas we found to get you started.

The November issue of House Beautiful Magazine featured this adorable beige cross bench and we immediately fell in love. Two of them side by side not only gives guests a place to sit, but also a perfect touch of class to the room. These wonderful and inviting X Benches are made with stunning linen and nickel nailheads.

The Safavieh Beige X-Cross Bench (found here) is a perfect solution for extra seating and creating a warm and welcoming living room.

Chic Round Table with Brass Base

Pin It

We came accross this table today and we thought, what an adorable side table for an arm chair or a sofa...It has a black marble top, which we prefer to a glass top--it's way easier to clean. It looks great with a neutral decor such as the one shown here--lots of neutral tones mixed in with whites, beige and black.

If you like this round brass side table, you can find a similiar one here.  We also have the exact table which is not on our site yet (shown below), but email us if you are interested and we'll get you all the info.
