A perfect juxtaposition of fabrics, where casual linen meets elegant black velvet. This chair is the perfect thing to snuggle into on a chilly autumn afternoon. Pair it with a crackling fire and a good book.
My current obsession with canopy beds probably has a lot to do with my very high ceilings and the urge to fill space. It could have something to do with my love of curtains; the thought of closing up curtains around me while I sleep is very romantic. But mostly, I think the obsession stems from the timeless elegance of these beautiful beds. Check it out.
Always trying to be on the edge of industrial chic, I came across this great web store based in Virginia called Factory 20. Not only is their collection MASSIVE, everything is perfectly displayed in high definition photographs so you really can see each item. I’ve highlighted a few of my favorite items here, including a set of miniature Thonet cafe chairs and a victorian era tavern table (above), a German porcelain steel garment rack, and an old library card catalog storage cabinet. If you like what you see click over to their website, but be sure to set aside some time!
Thanksgiving week is always a nice relaxing time for me. I frantically make trades with my fellow Modern employees so that I can work during Christmas, and get some time off for this greatest of holidays. You can expect updating later of our many festivities; table setting, floral arranging… cooking, baking, cocktail making. But before the Thanksgiving posting begins, I thought I’d write a post about the chaise lounge. My parents have just recently bought one for our family room, and as I was sitting in it this morning (nursing my hangover, a Thanksgiving tradition) and sipping a mimosa, I couldn’t help but think of how amazing these lounges can be. I hope you enjoy this roundup of some favorite photos from my collection of the chaise lounge.
Ok… there are more than a few things I drool over when I visit ABC Carpet and Home, but none holds the same place in my heart than the sections set aside for Madeline Weinrib Carpets. Today I opened up this month’s edition of Traditional Home to find that she also makes handbags! This find sent me on a tour of her website, which spawned an entire internet stalking. I found these great photos of her home from Elle Decor (check out the full article here), and have grabbed a few of my favorite items from her line below.
These last few photos are some I’ve collected over time from various blogs and magazines. They feature my favorite of her carpets, the Zig Zag. It sure is popular, and I can see why.
