In the past few months, we’ve received hundreds of requests from home and apartment dwellers looking for inspiration and advice (mostly regarding what pieces will work with the furniture they already own). Could it be that we’re all still feeling the loss of Domino? I know we are. But don’t fret, we’re here for you! We keep an iPhoto file, and the dinosaur in me still keeps a paper pile, of our favorite furniture pieces for future reference, only now we seem to be referring to it on a day-to-day basis. Lately, as the requests for guidance become more frequent, our “library” of great pieces is expanding. We love to share what we’ve found in our travels, and we’re always pleased to learn that the pieces we recommend really do work for you. Here are five great pieces at the top of our home wish list at the moment. Each one is versatile and stylish enough to live in any room. Take a look and please give us your feedback. Do you all have a special piece you’re saving up for?
1. Dromedary Love Seat: Designed by NYC designer, John Derian, (of decoupage fame) is covered in Belgian linen and made with sustainable hardwoods ($2,680). We also love this sofa covered in John Robshaw fabrics.
2. Giles Collection Molasses Chair: In this case, Art Deco style translates to any decor (28″w x 31″d x31″h, on sale for $1,009).
3. Baker Collector’s Edition Mahogany Center Table: This piece is scaled beautifully and is crafted with elaborate raised beaded border detail. Contact your nearest Baker Furniture dealer for pricing (40″ wide and 40″ deep, 30 1/4″ high).
4. Martha Stewart Beekman Nesting Cocktail Tables with Glass Top. Painted maple veneers with jet black finish marry beautifully with the eglomise inset glass tops (large table 55″ w x 23 7/8″ d x 20″ h, $999).
5 Wisteria Round Wooden Gateleg Table: Love the mango wood in natural color, inspired by the British Colonial style. Folds for easy storage. (60″diameter x 30″h, $999).
