Things We Love: Chaise Lounges

I don’t know if it’s because we’re wearing our Spanx as tight as they used to wear their corsets, but we are as crazy about chaise lounges (or fainting couches…) as those 19th-century women were. Even if you don’t expressly need a place to lounge because your undergarments are restricting the flow of oxygen to your brain, there is no better place to relax than a couch built for one — or two if you’re in a snuggly mood.

This oceanfront living room is a beyond amazing place to curl up and watch late-night movies with the sound of the ocean in the background. We just might want to turn those chairs the other way to admire the view…

Giraffe print is fabulous in any room, but we especially like it in a nursery because, as the baby grows and the room transitions, the print doesn’t have to change one bit.

Isn’t everything better when it’s tufted?

A chaise in the bathroom is so glamorous. Wouldn’t you want to spend more time lounging in your bathroom if it looked like that?

We love the juxtaposition of the starfish with the french frame. It’s so fun for a coastal home!

Candace Bushnell’s Living Room

I am unbelievably jealous of Candace Bushnell’s pink chaise lounge and now devastated that the one I picked for my office is white. What a great place to peruse a great novel… Sex and the City, anyone?

Things We Love: Bamboo Chandeliers

In doing a little research for the perfect chandelier for my kitchen, we came across more than a few fabulous options. But the hands-down winner for style: bamboo, bamboo, bamboo. So, yes, maybe it’s a theme with us here lately, but nothing makes a ceiling pop more than an uber-chic bamboo chandelier. And, somehow, whether you have a formal space or a more casual one, these lovely lights seem to make the right statement. Versatility is the best, especially if you might be moving soon. Trust me on this one…

The Bamboo Chandelier from Gump’s is a great find and comes in a fun green. The Meurice 30 Light Chandelier is another favorite that proves, yet again, something we all know by now: that Jonathan Adler knows what he’s doing! If you’re looking for something a little more budget friendly, the Tropically Modern Bamboo Chandelier is cute as a button.

We hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos as much as we did!
