Pull Up a Chair, This May Take a While

Picture 8 This week the topic focus was on beautiful printed goods. Be it paper, posters, artwork, stationary... artistic paper is worthy of celebration.

The image above is a clue as to the two topics I'll be covering before the month ends. It features Barbara Barry's exquisite Bracelet Chair for Henredon. Is that not the prettiest chair you've seen in ages? The photo jumped out at me from this month's MetHome magazine. Deeeelish! And the fabric is actually a Barry-designed textile available through Kravet. (At this moment I'm shaking my head and smiling at the ever-prolific Barry. Designers like her don't come around often. But when they do, we should all stand back and watch her craft her web of fabulousity.)

So... what are the topics? Next week is all about jewelry. Bracelets, baubles, bangles, bling... call it what you will. I've been uncovering some of the prettiest pieces available and I'm itching to share them with you. My advice? Freeze your Amex in a block of ice this weekend, because some of my discoveries are irresistable!

The following week we will go chair hunting together. Armchairs, side chairs, low-slung, outdoor... it doesn't matter. We'll talking fabulous seating and that's all that matters. Get ready to drool over some of the beautiful options on the market today.

Until then... have a fantastic weekend. I'm takinga few days off to play in the sun and rediscover my inner Zen. I'll catch you back here next week. Ciao a tutti!

{I'm not the only one drooling over the Bracelet chair. Check out Patrick's terrific post on the iconic designer.}

What the beautiful people are saying...

Have a fantastic weekend - can't wait for your posts!

That chair is STUNNING!!! I want 5!

Have a beautiful weekend. Good luck with finding your Zen. :)

Something to say, gorgeous?
