Had to post these pieces because they are just so cool and just looking at them leaves me majorly inspired.
Lately, I’ve been looking around for pieces to help a friend’s living room shine. During my search, I’ve become obsessed with benches.
Yeah, a weird thing to be obsessed with, but I guess that comes with the territory when you’re always looking at furniture. Anyway… I came across this bench on Chairish yesterday and can’t get it out of my head. It’s handmade, I love the way the back is lighter, and it just oozes chic.
If you haven’t heard of Chairish yet, it is kind of like Etsy meets 1st Dibs. A lot of the stuff is vintage, some is handmade or rehabbed, and, generally speaking, the stuff is higher quality than Etsy, and a little less pricey than 1stDibs.
I’ve probably been spending a little too much time online because I have so many photos to create imaginary rooms with! This one started with the chair. I love the pops of red, white, blue, and green!
I’ve got a chair I’ve been working on, and it just hasn’t been going anywhere because I’ve been waiting to find that perfect fabric. I keep flip flopping between something traditional (because it does have cane backing) or something a little funkier (I’ve looked at tribal prints, monkey prints, sea horses…) After creating this board, I think I’ve decided on a funky pattern in traditional colors, like red or blue.
What do I do in my spare time? Create imaginary rooms for my future homes!
Here’s the latest!
It all started with this gorgeous Max Gottschalk bench I stumbled across on 1st Dibs. The rug is from West Elm (!!!) (they have some rugs that are so chic at such a good price point!) The lamp is midcentury (also from 1st Dibs). Both pillows come from One Kings Lane. I love the white one and use it for “inspiration boards” all the time. And I love these antique pitchers because they’re a different take on classic blue and white.
