“Blurred Lines”…Between Furniture and Art

Jean-Louis Deniot drew inspiration from historic designers like Dorothy Draper when he

designed this beautiful commode made with walnut wood and rock crystal pulls. Isn’t it

amazing!?!??

Étagère- How Do You Say It and What In The World Is It??

According to Mr. Webster… étagère (noun) /ā tä ‘zher/

:a piece of furniture consisting of a set of open shelves for displaying small objects and sometimes naming an enclosed cabinet as a base.

The origin is France the latter part of the 18th century. I am sure that you have heard the term “whatnot”.  Well,

the “whatnot” has come a long way as you will see.

 

If your home lacks elegant shelving the the Étagère is the perfect piece to help give you the look of well edited shelves.  It is a great place to show

case your collection of precious objects.  Well edited is the key.  Don’t over whelm by over loading.

Today you can find them in all shapes, sizes and materials. They make a great piece to use in any room really.  Use just one or

create a balance by using a pair. They can not help stealing the spotlight!

You  will see that the styles can range from GROOVY to Serious and everything in between.

How Amazing is Surya?

This weekend we had the pleasure of visiting the Surya exhibition at market in Las Vegas. What a fun place to be! Their showroom was so warm and inviting with plenty of helpful, friendly reps to answer all our questions. Their selections are simply stunning so we just had to show you some first-hand pics of their brand new rugs.

What is it About a Good Movie Set?

While watching a Sunday night movie (You’ve Got Mail), I realized that all my favorite romantic comedies have awesome interiors. Can’t be a coincidence. Maybe we love these movies because they’re cute, funny AND they look good.

Casual and elegant
