the Farmhouse Wing Chair & Other Favorites
September 20, 2012
So I guess it’s been awhile since I posted product. I mostly focus on the overall aesthetic of a room so today I’m going to post a few of my favorite pieces from vendors I use with some regularity… Starting with the Farm House Wing Chair from Hickory Chair. It’s got great style and its a comfortable sit, it looks good in traditional and modern settings and you can order it from 28 inches wide up to 120 inches wide! I’ve seen it upholstered with a “racing stripe” down the middle and that is a great look, breaking tradition further and adding to its modern sensibility.
Random I know, it’s a mixed bag today… but I’m just loving the Vincent table from Oly. Inside or outside I love this table in pairs, flanking french doors, a fireplace or a sofa. Available in several finishes the organic look of the faux-wood table adds interest to a space, plays well with traditional furniture and the dash of whimsy isn’t “too cute”… the table has sophisticated polish. A great foyer piece too, I like it in white with a mirror above it.
This is the Cabrillo Nailhead Chest from Bernhart. It’s gotten a lot of attention since it’s debut, and why not? It’s a stunner and Bernhart is known for good – not great, but good – pricing. This chest probably isn’t “cheap” but well worth the cost, just look at the detail. The chest is linen wrapped and the decorative nailhead details are most likely applied by hand, that’s some serious labor. The piece itself is a show stopper. I’d love this chest of drawers as night stands in a big bedroom against a dark wall. POP!
Ahhh… McGuire. a San Francisco based company that has been around forever, just keeps putting out chic product that feels fresh and holds up to the test of time (never trendy, always timeless). The Barbara Barry designed Caned Lounge Chair is designed for comfort. The square back offers a delicate pattern of square mesh caning framed in rattan and accented by the collection’s signature half-oval, cutout detail… and it looks good too!

And finally, I would be remiss if i did not include a rug from my favorite rug vendor Asmara. This rug in particular is so elegant and so beautiful and so easy to design around and live with. Silk, cotton, linen, leather… Eveything looks good with this rug. I work on many coastal homes and the pale color palette is perfect to compliment beautiful views and maintain a balance between whats going on indoors and out. Using ancient French Savonnerie dyeing and weaving methods and fine hand spun wool yarns, this hand-knotted Oushak pile rug has subtle shade and texture variations rivalling the best antique Oushak rugs. If you want the best, start with Asmara.
