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.


and the dining chairs…very feminine.



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.

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.

monsieur denoit. french. perfection. bringing interior design that strikes the perfect balance between minimal and max. the perfect layering of furnishings that provide depth of design. never too antique. never too contemporary. just right. and did i mention his absolute mastery in the subtle mix of the neutral — color. material. texture. pattern. so chic.
