good morning! it’s noon (-ish) on monday and the week is fresh and new.
this week i’m shifting into high gear to see what i can accomplish.
still working on finalizing the styles for the chair line. there are just so many subtle differences and i need to narrow.
i have a chair maker who can create any frame we can imagine.
i’ve been going through the most universal styles, but there are a few that i haven’t seen around much and i’d love to revive.
trouble is i’m working with guys who may not think feminine furniture is as delicious a i (maybe we? do).
before i commit and get everyone on board, i just wanted to hear your thoughts. what kind of chairs, benches, sofas or chaises are you looking for?
these are a few i pulled this morning, just wanted to post them since i want them all personally!
so let me ask you, how do you feel about cane?
are you still into vanity chairs?
slipper chairs? tufts?
carvings? we all know that women do most of the purchasing so i appreciate you weighing in so i can share your opinion with the gang.
by the by, i was sent a copy of a new book titled, ‘amour provence’ by constance leisure.
i promised to host a giveaway, so if you’d like to throw your chapeau in the ring, just say so in the comments and we’ll draw on wednesday.
ok, signing off for a bit, have a wonderful week!
good morning and happy monday. how are you doing? over here i’m still on the path of transformation and working on changing it up. as you know, it’s been a few months and i’ve tried everything from videos, to blogging to self assessment and philanthropy, focusing on figuring out a new direction. it’s finally paying off after the 6 month mark with your helpful friendship. you may ask how, so i’ll answer before you ask, that whether i heard directly from you or not, i know you’re there and that alone gave me the determination and strength not to throw in the towel when i was facing burnout at the 20+ year mark of the paris apartment’s anniversary. the new website will be launching soon and things are moving along quickly.
first i want to thank all of you who commented on the post about the chairs. i also wanted to let you know that it’s official, i’ll be working with desirant in asheville, nc to design a line of furniture! we’ll be making the pieces right here in the good old US of A using local craftsmen, painters and upholsterers to create unique pieces. i’m thinking that it would be fun to do a couple of different styles and have each represent those of you who commented. that said, i’d love your opinion on the styles we’ll use for starters. what do you think of these frames and would they be useful in your home? if so, how so? looking forward to hearing your valued opinion!
we’ll be using frames that are already available like the sofa above and these chaises,
and honestly not sure about this one…do you think it’s just too much of a muchness?
along with these we’ll be creating pieces from some antiques and renderings i’ve been saving for years. more to come on that so let me know if you’re looking for anything in particular. if you get a chance, i’d like to help them get the word out about their store, brand and general existence. these are the links to their social media. would LOVE it if you joined in. if you do let me know which you’re most into socially…thanks again for being here, love you!
allo there! how’s your summer going? we’re in full swing and it’s a time of sunshine and creativity. i’ve been working on a few different projects and would like to get your opinion on some of the things i’ve been contemplating. many of us have a passion for repurposing and also doing things with a twist. i’ve always loved furniture and see it as a canvas and a good way to find creativity in everything from emotion to self expression. today i’d like your take on mixing it up a little with chairs in particular. are you more of a traditionalist or do you see them as an object of playfulness? below are some favorites i’ve been collecting on pinterest. you can find them all here, specifically in the likes and pins: i’m curious to see what you think; whether they’re just trendy or could become the new classics, and which are your faves. so i ask you, are you a radical?
or somewhere in between?
