This week I’m turning #FFFFind on it’s head and sharing not one, but several finds you can buy from me, right now! I’m clearing out some of my inventory, and also have a couple of client items in the mix – designer furniture, pillows, and art!Read More
What is better than lounging in a cozy, inviting corner chaise longue with a good book (or podcast, or Instagram feed) and your favorite beverage? Nothing, ever. Well, maybe napping – though I’m personally not a napper (I always feel more tired when I wake up!). When I am designing living spaces for clients I am usually angling to see if I can fit one into the furniture layout. It isn’t always easy, but when there is adequate space in just the right place, it is magic!
The only problem is…I often have a really hard time finding a chaise with the ‘just right’ specs – style, size, one-arm (generally looks best in a corner) and, most importantly, quality construction.
But I’m all about finding unicorns, and today I’m sharing one with you.Read More
Have you ever met a person who you knew immediately was a kindred spirit? For me, that person was Joe Ruggiero. I met him on my first visit to High Point market back in 2013. In fact, Joe was the first person I met at market. He was at the Miles Talbott showroom (now The…Read More
Friday has not been this much of a relief in a long time! I’ve been away from the blog for just a bit as I got through what I knew would be a challenging week or so, between the opening of show house (still open until November 5th!), and the prep and kickoff of Heading…Read More
A couple of years ago, I visited my sister in NYC (solo!!), and spent a Friday at the New York Design Center while waiting for her to wrap up work for the weekend. It was cool to visit showrooms and see lines we don’t have here in Boston, some of which also don’t show at…Read More
This week’s find isn’t new to me, as it is a piece of furniture I used in a client project a couple of years ago. I’m working with the same client again on a new project (their very cool pool house), and she keeps telling me how beloved it is, especially by her teenage boys,…Read More
It killed me to miss my Tuesday blog post last week. So much going on – all good stuff though, so no complaining here! One of those things was the kickoff of IFDA New England Take a Seat; for which I have created a chair. Area designers have concocted creative chairs (23 of them!) that…Read More
Friday, I’m just not ready for you. And yet, here you are. So let’s do this… This week’s #FFFFind is something I’ve been seeking for a long time. A cubby-type storage system makes a lot of sense for many kids’ spaces, but I’m truly bored and underwhelmed by the choices out there. Not to mention, the…Read More
After a topsy-turvy, over-scheduled week, all I want to do when today is done is put my feet up and RELAX. With a generously-poured glass of wine and tall stack of back-issue shelter magazines close-by, of course! The aptly-named Tray Chic Ottoman from Bunny Williams Home really delivers the best of many worlds, and takes the concept of a…Read More
Even as a design professional, I have to say that dining tables are one of the most challenging home furnishings to source. Usually we are looking for a very specific size and style; then there is the type of base, the surface, the material(s), the finishes – not to mention price! So many variables must come…Read More
