Let’s Go Shopping!
We launched our Style Marketplace online store last year because so many of our clients asked where they could get more of the wonderful items we find for them. And their friends were also asking about a great source for designer-quality furniture and accessories. Have you shopped around our site yet? If not, here are a few of my favorite picks – but I hope you’ll give us a virtual visit and select some of your own too.
This round table (below) has proved really popular with clients. It’s a substantial side table that has room for a lamp, picture frames and a glass of wine. Plus it works in a variety of design themes, from Tuscan to transitional. This table is excellent quality, very sturdy, and actually gives off more of a distinctive mossy green tone than it appears in the picture.
Pair this table with the chair below in a Tuscan or Spanish home. They don’t necessarily need to be side by side, but they will play well off each other in the same room.
One of my favorite uses of this mirror was when we hung three of them in a straight row above a headboard in a client’s bedroom. It was a unique application that lightened up the space and added reflective tones. This mirror could work in a very contemporary or even a transitional home.
If you lean contemporary, combine that mirror – or mirrors! – with this slipper chair. I love its interesting lines, from the curving back to the slightly bowed wood legs. The velvet upholstery is luxurious without being too precious, and the double row of steel nails at the bottom give it a touch of industrial flair too.
Isn’t this bench an eye-catcher? You might use it at a bedroom or bathroom vanity, or as extra seating in your living room. Either way, that hand-carved frame adds a custom touch.
Match the bench with these sconces, perhaps on either side of your vanity mirror. They provide a whisper of French styling without being overwhelming.
And remember, just because an upholstered item isn’t your style doesn’t mean the piece isn’t for you. We can inexpensively have most any item reupholstered in the fabric that best meets your needs, whether that’s leather for your study or durable cotton to withstand jumping kids.
While you are welcome to shop Style Marketplace on your own, we’d love to meet with you and discuss how some of your favorites might fit into your home’s design. Please contact us to set up a designer consultation.
