My new coffee table(s) came and I do love them. I got some new pillows and a few accent pieces. The orange chair that my nostalgic children refuse to let me re-cover went down into the basement kid pad. And here is the result so far.
I got this camel saddle transformed to ottoman there. Ian and Emily are the owners and they have a great eye for cool things and tend toward reclaiming and transforming the old into something new. I love that!
My husband also discovered this table below at the Market. Ian's brother is making them out of old doors from Charleston, SC. La Maison Boheme had a great post about using old doors at about the same time. The table below is for sale for $275 and we decided something smaller but similar would be perfect for the entry way behind the big leather chair. We gave our dimensions and eagerly await the results! I love cool surprises.
Oh and I almost forgot, I picked up this cute little table at Pier One for $49 a couple of weeks ago. I am not sure this will be it's permanent home but I thought it was really cool for the price especially.
I have been in love with this whimsical but incredibly expensive bed from Anthropologie forever and I guess I thought it was a little like having a bit of that in the house.
I also want to get another chair to replace the one now in the basement - something a little more streamline, a little more mid century. My husband is a musician (guitar) and so it would be nice to find one without arms. I found this on ebay last night but I am not paying that much for it! I'll keep looking but isn't it great and sort of perfect?
I have been MIA because we were in Snowshoe skiing! So fun!! Ready to go back even if it was about 5 degrees. Enjoying a nice, sunny day on the coast today. Have a great weekend!
