Around Here

Things have been busy busy over here!  We're trying to expand the store, by adding some new and exciting products (stay tuned!)...  and in addition to that, I'm working on a few local interior design projects.  Every design is completely different and I am LOVING the creative challenge.  Here's what I've been up to this week...



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:

lovely.



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.
