Back To Life, Back to Reality (Do the rest of you think in really cheesy 80’s lyrics, or is it just me???) 🙂
So I hit send on Michael’s Room reveal post and headed into my favorite city (NYC) for a couple of days because the kids were off of school. We came back late Saturday to a filthy home, one great bedroom and a crazy amount of love on the world wide web! Thank you so much for all of your feedback and support!!! I am still going through all the love and I’m still going through all these amazing rooms.
So back to client work and I found myself researching my local Craigslist. Of course that turns into hours of passing on things that I or my clients don’t need…so I thought I would show you a couple finds for inspiration or if you are local, please, snag it up!!
I thought this set was cute. I love the chairs. A set of new bold patterned cushions or spray-painting them a bold color would make a big statement. Pair them with a different table, maybe a game table or tulip table…
You could get this whole set for one of these from Ballard:
Jonathan Adler x bench. Navy blue velvet (Venice Navy). Brand new condition. Retails for $745
Now I would love a pair of these under a console or at the end of a bed, but one would still look great as an accent piece and additional seating in a living room or maybe at the end of a twin bed in a kid or guest room.
I have the rectangle CB2 version of this table, but I’ve never seen a large square one with the same waterfall edge. I love these table, especially in tight spaces because they visually do not crowd the room.
This Grand Octagonal Dining Table, designed by John McGuire, features bamboo poles lashed in place with McGuire’s signature rawhide laces. The design has a center support of bundled bamboo. Horizontal bamboo members radiate from the center and join eight inner supports and outer bamboo legs to create this beautiful, geometric form.
The glass 1 inch Octagonal top is beveled without a scratch. The table comfortably seats 8 and the set comes with 10 Rattan Chairs that can be easily customized.
Excellent deal as retail price would be roughly $23,000.00.
Okay, that’s a lot of money, but I was so intrigued by this (and their awful photos) that I did some digging. This is a gorgeous set! It would look spectacular in someone’s beach house (ummm, please invite me for a cocktail!!!), but would really look great with many different styles. What’s weird is that I found that they have it listed for $7,000 on Ebay??! I would start negotiations at $5,000 and also look at the condition in person. Here are some photos and McGuire Furniture’s website.
Alright, now I’ve got to go find stuff that I and my client’s can use, but your welcome for getting that awesome song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. 🙂
