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,... Continue Reading →

Big Article Tomorrow!

Favorite Finds: Big Daddy’s Antiques

I've been digging on Big Daddy's Antiques for years. A great place for unique finds and rehab inspiration; it has been really wonderful to watch them grow so quickly. They even have a new branch of stores called Georgia Brown (Big Daddy's daughter!) cropping up. (Look for a Beverly Hills location soon.) Here are my... Continue Reading →

Trend Report: Color, Color, Color

I headed back to Goodwill, and low and behold, they were sitting... Continue Reading →

Just an example of how the wrong fabric can completely ruin a piece. I actually thought these were being sold with the intention of being reupholstered. Okay, this may be the right fabric if you have a jungle theme or are a thirteen year old girl, but I generally wouldn't choose cheetah print for something... Continue Reading →

A Lesson in Colors and Textiles

So it's pretty basic that color and fabric can completely transform a piece of furniture. The right combo can take something you want to hide in the corner to a showpiece that everyone loves. The wrong picks can make a piece that was already pretty good look pretty terrible. I saw a lot both today at the... Continue Reading →

Recently, I was found these babies in the parking lot of an office where I was interviewing. When I was leaving, I snuck around to where they were sitting and stuffed them in the back seat of my car. They were in bad shape- moldy, stinky messes. They have good bones, though, and I just... Continue Reading →
