Featured Chair: Tre Pezzi by Franco Albini

Featured Chair: Tre Pezzi by Franco Albini

I love the Tre Pezzi chair. What’s not to love?

The carriage and stature reminds me of a distinguished gentleman. Tre Pezzi means 3 pieces. Makes sense, right?

You can currently find new versions at Cassina, but if you want the real thing, these are incredibly hard to find. I was once looking for an original, and I had a dealer LAUGH IN MY FACE when they realized I was serious.

This midcentury style was designed by Franco Albini and Franca Helg, and is one of my favorite all time finds.

Funky and Fun Details

I like the idea of a little something shiny.
My dad always called me a barracuda because I like the idea of a little something shiny.
Love the funky shape of this chair!

I'm obsessed with these furry stools from Anthropologie. They ring in at $348 each (eeps!) But you could get a similar look by throwing a sheep skin over a small stool.

The boline chair from Anthropologie reminds me of a throne. Fit for a boho queen.

Just for Fun… Some Easy Project Ideas

I am loving these looks right now… apparently I am ALL about the COLOR this week! 🙂
Not sure where the photos came from, I’ve just shimmied them into the “inspiration” folder on my desktop over the past week.

Love, love, love the look of this desk. The blue paint could really brighten up an old desk!
Loving this faux bamboo look that is taking over right now! This would be perfect in hot pink!

This drum table was listed at $429 on One Kings Lane. Love it! If you found something similar at a flea market/ thrift store, the look would be easy to recreate with a can of spray paint.

Notice a common theme (other than color) going on here? All of these items would make for pretty easy projects (the chair would probably be the hardest one because you’d have to re-upholser depending on what you find.) A coat of paint and you’re pretty much done. Perfect ideas for time pressed rehabbers who want to breathe new life into their space!

Park City Style

Here are some highlights from my favorite store in Park City, Root’d.

They say the devil is in the details for good reason… details are what make a space special. And, boy, was this store special. I loved it. It felt like everywhere you turned, you noticed a new item that you just had to have.

Don’t just take my word for it, here are some photos of my favorite items:

This was right inside the front door. Love that it reminds me of fish scales!

First thought upon seeing these chairs: they have to be touched. Second thought: Must. Sit. Down.

Chairs Galore!

I have BIG NEWS!

If you’re a regular Roadside Rehab reader, you are probably already familiar with my chair obsession. If you’re just getting into RR, you soon will understand. I think I had 11 chairs in my one bedroom apartment at last count… now, about that resolution…

If you’re also a chair addict, you can get your fix by following my new account @chair_candy on Instagram!

Before you go, here is a quick fix:

I love a wingback, and this fabric... perfection.

New Addition!

Last weekend, I crossed the line from rehabber to hoarder. Every few months, I will end up with so many pieces that navigating through my apartment becomes a little difficult and I have to sell a ton of stuff.

What wonderful piece put me over the edge this time? A bamboo-ish chair spotted on the side of the road when driving past a yard sale. I almost didn’t take it because the seller would not negotiate on the $40 price tag. I mean, something about talking someone down just feels right.

All business: talking on the phone, carrying the chair, and I’m still skurrying to keep up. Isn’t it GORGEOUS though??

We were sooo late meeting friends that we had to make a quick decision and get outta there, and I’m so happy that I brought this baby home. Once I cleaned it up with a little pledge, I realized that it is in such good shape that all it needs is a new slipcover (and you can do a bunch and change them out– score!!) and maybe a little hit with a stain pen.

A couple of days later, I realized that I’d saved a photo of chairs that were super similar as “inspiration” not too long ago. How cool is that?!

So similar, right?

Love the Lines…

Of this gorgeous chair featured on One Kings Lane. No wonder it sold out in one day!
The color is pretty darn perfect, too. A dusty rose like this fits in pretty much anywhere.

If you wanted to get reeeeally crafty, you could make an extra pillow and cushion in a funky or striped fabric and switch them out depending on your mood!
