Mix & Match: Upholstered Chairs

You know that feeling when something’s missing? That happens in design all the time — a room just feels off until the right accessory, lamp or piece of furniture finds its place.

That’s why we love our upholstered chairs (including four brand new designs from our Fall collection!) — they’re designed to complement each other and the rest of our furniture collections, despite their distinct styles.

Each of these chairs can mix and match with each other for a complementary seating set-up, or can thrown into virtually any room, in any style, to stand as a statement piece.

Our favorite part? Each and every one of these chairs can be upholstered in a multitude of our beautiful fabrics for long lasting, custom style.

How to Style a Console Table: Part 1

This post was written exclusively for Inside & Out by Jana Bek of Jana Bek Design

Styling is my jam! From consoles to bookshelves, I love creating vignettes in my home and clients’ homes. But it’s more difficult than it looks — and I’ve found that a lot of my clients find it daunting. My first tip is to relax and have fun with it! Start by gathering up things you already own, then practice, be patient and play!

A console table is a great place to start, since it serves multitude of functions. Here’s one of my favorite ways to style a console table — stay tuned for parts 2 and 3, soon!

Sofa console tables are a great way to hide a sofa back or provide a perch for a book or beverage. When styling sofa tables I make sure items aren’t too high — I don’t want to obstruct the view looking into a space.

In this Salt Lake City client’s home, I used a beautiful grapewood branch to add interest. Its light visual weight doesn’t distract from the view to the living room. In any piece with shelves, like this Tanner Media Console, you’ll want to vary the shapes and textures of pieces.

Here, you have the organic wood, bone box and ceramic bowl. The light colors contrast with the dark iron table beautifully. Also, by staggering items, the vignette feels airy instead of cramped. The glass shelves allow light to disperse through the piece, too.

Home We Love: Cooking with Glamour in a Gold, Black and White Kitchen

Decorating, Inspiration | | | 3 Replies

Today’s kitchens are more than just cooking spaces. Unlike the kitchens of the past, the modern kitchen is a dining room, bar, homework space and entertaining area combined. But even though it’s one of the hardest working rooms in the house, that doesn’t mean it can’t be glamorous!

This stunning kitchen from Lonny Magazine proves our point. Showstopping Lucite and gold light fixtures take center stage against a bold black and white palette.

Print & Pattern: Inspiration for our Fall Pillow Collection

This season, our pillow collection is all about color, texture and pattern. We spoke to one of our lead in-house textile designers, Sandra, to learn more about the inspiration behind this bold new look.

Most of the patterns in our new pillows have a distinctly global feel, and were inspired in-part by trips our design team took to Barcelona and Morocco. Two patterns in particular — Ikats and Suzanis — are traditional prints commonly found in these two regions.

Our design team took those traditional patterns and updated them with unusual colorways for a Pottery Barn twist. Using current color trends with classic global patterns transformed their look and feel.

One of our favorite pillows for the season, the Mercer Ikat, is based on a traditional Uzbekistani pattern, but the combination of navy, sunflower yellow and berry make it stand out. The pattern itself is made with a rustic linen tissue, appliqued and embroidered to the pillow for a casual look that doesn’t feel too precious.

Home We Love: An All-Seasons Porch in the Hamptons

Whether you live in the Bahamas or Alaska — Mother Nature has a way of dampening our outdoor plans, even with the sunniest forecast.  That’s why we love screened-in porches, like this one in Sag Harbor, New York, shot by Lonny Magazine.

See the full story here.

Cozy sheepskin throws over woven rattan chairs turn this indoor/outdoor room into a space for all seasons — you can experience the outdoors in comfort, rain or shine. A worn wood table makes this a great spot to read a magazine and drink coffee in the morning, or host an impromptu wine and cheese get-together. It’s the perfect expression of casual elegance.
