flower power — from the odegard collection

I def­i­nitely have a thing for side tables with char­ac­ter, and these are great exam­ples. From Viya Home, the Stephanie Ode­gard Col­lec­tion includes sev­eral organ­i­cally inspired tables, but these three wield the strongest flower power!

My per­sonal favorite, the sculp­tural beauty of this piece is undeniable.

furniture friday — from chelsea textiles

Despite 'tex­tiles' in the name, Chelsea Tex­tiles also has a lovely fur­ni­ture line of rang­ing from Gus­ta­vian to mid-mod to lac­quer. This one piece melds all those styles. The color is Gus­ta­vian, the styling is mid-mod and the legs are lac­quer! Add it's curvy gor­geous­ness and the fact that, to me, it looks nearly a crib for cod­dling grown-up girls — I'm feel­ing the love!

furniture friday: the antidote to the boring side table

Some­times I think if I see another bor­ing square wooden side table, I will run scream­ing in the streets! There are so many cre­ative options avail­able to host a book and a bev­er­age, why set­tle for the mun­dane? Here's a roundup of some lively options it would be hard to tire of.

This is sim­ply exquis­ite, from Rose Tar­low Mel­rose House:

The Syrah table can­not hold a book, but keeps your wine in style! From

furniture friday…from munkii

I can't even describe how much this book­case delights me! From Munkii, it's tra­di­tional and mod­ern all wrapped into one smile-inducing piece of func­tional fur­ni­ture. The egg­plant inte­rior with the white lac­quered exte­rior could not be eas­ier to mix into an exist­ing room in need of a state­ment piece. LOVE!
