cornejo textiles

How excited am I that I’ve got an aging, faded Knoll Womb Chair in need of reupholstering and Maria Cornejo’s just launched a gorgeous textile collaboration  with that very brand? Now it’s just a question of which fabric to choose. Is it crazy that I’m considering the metallic?

I love these mugs from Dwell Studio, which come clashy-matchy, two of each to a set.

Timorous Beasties fabric on a classic Ercol Studio Couch. I am dying over the pretty here.

Shine on

 

fornasetti mano tray

I once thought that my taste would become more refined and understated as I aged, but the older I get, the more I am drawn to bright, shiny things (am I alone in this?)—and I’m pretty sure that by the time I hit my seventies, I’m going to be one of those ladies whose outfits are far more amusing than they are stylish. I feel similarly about items for the home: gold used to strike me as tacky for interiors, but now I’m loving little hits of it: like this Fornasetti trinket tray, which is currently on my top 5 list of things I’d like to receive as a gift.

A wee chevron box for your whatnots.

Just an urchin-shaped thing that I suddenly feel quite strongly belongs on my coffee table.

I totally already own this.

Or, more accurately I suppose, textures. On vases. And all in white, because that’s what I’m feeling. Here’s a porcelain studded number for the gracefully aging punk rocker in your life. (And wow, it comes in a lamp too.)

This honeycomb pattern feels at once earthy and urban.

I know people go absolutely nuthouse for Orla Kiely, but I have never been one of those people. Still, in this context, I have to say it totally works (actually, it must be said that her candles and diffusers are pretty boss too).

Is this Christian Lacroix notebook not divine?  It’s just one of a travel-themed series (check out these equally fantabulous offerings inspired by MumbaiRio, Paris, New York, LA and London) and I want them all, all, all.

Tuesday Trifecta

Our theme of the day is triangles, specifically as found on items for the home. I’m thinking it might be fun to trade in my sleepy old Moroccan poufs for this more geometric model.

A very Danish modern-style bowl from the folks at Ferm Living.

And why not a triangular cutting board for displaying your cheeses and charcuterie?

Preppy little tabletop items depicting jungle animals fill me with delight. I can not tell you why.

I am so thoroughly charmed by this cocktail tumbler, with its creatures all in a row. Very Scully & Scully: the affordable version.

And I’m not going to lie; I love all the gold.

Isn’t this platter by Waylande Gregory actually rather punk rock? I would like very much to own it.

The only way I could love this this hand-woven Mayan throw pillow any more is if it were a dress.
