fabulous fauteuils – the brommö chaise

The Brommö Chaise by Ikea

I loved this chair the moment I saw it. When I saw the price tag I really loved it. Normally it’s quite the opposite. The Brommö chaise from Ikea is stylish, functional, AND affordable. So affordable. The sleek and modern design lends itself to any space, inside or out, and because it’s foldable and portable you can easily use it for both. A perfect accent chair for in and out.

fabulous fauteuils – the sculpted metal + leather bowl chair

The Sculpted Metal + Leather Bowl Chair

I admit, it has been a while since my last post. My vacation to St. John ended just as Vermont decided it was finally time to end winter for real and allow planting without fear of frost. Coming fresh from the tropics there was no way I wasn’t going to try and emulate them here. I’m even trying cactus in my hanging baskets… but that’s for a different post. I apologize for the momentary pause, sometimes you just need to gather yourself and get some perspective.

So I’ve been wondering, what will I write about? What am I inspired by lately?… Well, I know what it is today. This chair.

fabulous fauteuils – the pacifica wing chair

The Pacifica Wing Chair by environment

It was love at first site with this chair. An irregular, quirky take on a wingback, it is upholstered in repurposed army tent canvas. The raw unfinished edges lend an easygoing style to the form which plays with the line between modern and traditional. The Pacifica Wing Chair by environment.

yes please – the wood castings of hilla shamia

I find myself completely enamored with the wood casting series by Isreali designer Hilla Shamia. Shamia begins with a whole tree trunk and pours molten aluminum directly onto the wood, burning the surface and darkening the wood. The trunk is then split lengthwise and put into a mold, where the legs are cast, creating benches, tables, and stools. Each piece is one of a kind – the grain of the wood, the pattern of burn, and the way in which the aluminum infiltrates the trunk.
