I did a little antique shopping for a few clients:
found these 1930s French art deco side chairs with pitch-perfect leopard upholstery(!!!) for a client's new living room. They were designed by legendary French designer, Jean-Michel Frank. We need to repair some of the caning, but overall? Finding these chairs MADE MY WEEK. They're a pretty big deal and I'm obsessed with them.
spotted this vintage faux bamboo Baker table-- gorgeous.
a small red lacquer vintage Chinese cabinet? Very cute.
and, I'm loving this antique gold mirror
Earlier in the week, I stopped by Lee Jofa/Brunschwig & Fils to shop for wallpaper.
(love that David Hicks print)
But, I got distracted by the panels and panels of brand new Brunschwig fabrics. Heaven!! The overall theme was texture texture texture... and these crewel prints were by far my favorite:
that's 6 inch crewel trim, people! 6 INCH.
a close up of that stunning crewel trim. Perfect for trimming a drapery panel, or the bottom edge of a skirted sofa.
And, look at this beaut:
that is one ENTIRE panel of crewel bliss.
And, here it is on an upholstered Bergere chair in the showroom:
But, back to the wallpaper. While I shopped, I felt "someone" watching me:
He was having a busy day too, shopping the Ralph Lauren fabrics I presume. :) But, he stopped long enough for me to take his picture.
