Floor Lamps

if you ask anyone, they’ll tell you that floor lamps are one of my least favorite design elements. i avoid them whenever possible.

but…i need a space — or a client — that needs a quirky, show-stopping, tony duquette-inspired floor lamp.



ostriches. palm trees. floor lamps. oh my.

…there’s nothing like the feeling when i find the final piece of the puzzle that is every interior design space. this rug is perfection.

modern/transitional/oriental — it speaks to the pure oriental rugs that are nearby…

Bishop Stools – India Mahdavi

every time i happen upon one of india mahdavi’s ‘bishop stools’, my reaction is that, in every ‘en situ’, it feels totally appropriate. no easy task. the bishop is that extra added ‘little layer of something’ every room needs. and we all know it’s the combination of layers + tension that keep a space interesting.

“Stay” Seating

this oversized upholstered lounge chair is a 21st century throne of the finest order. fit for a queen.

the line is available in several upholstered options. i’m having a velvet ‘moment’. tres chic. the ‘stay’ collection is from slovenian designer nika zupanc.

ro chair - yellow

ro chair - black

the ro chair from spanish designer jaime hayon is an alternative to the ubiquitous womb, egg, or eames lounge chair. introduced in 2013 and available from ‘the republic’ of fritz hansen, for me, it was love at first sight. it’s a wingback with a contemporary sensibility and perfect for reading. the ‘blinders’ allow just the right amount of cozy privacy. sexy, organic, and available in myriad fabric and leather choices for her or him.
