One of our favorite parts of any house is those focal points, the moments that stop us in our tracks, that make us remember the way a home looked and felt long after we have left it.

They’re comfortable for sitting, though they are rarely sat in. But, mostly, they’re just pretty and add a sense of history across from the marble desk, which is new, and my Louis ghost chair.
The good news is, if antiques–or furniture repair–aren’t your thing, cane seems to be making a comeback and there are plenty of brand new pieces that are functional and beautiful. On desk chairs,
We know you loved getting to peek at the gorgeous taste of Liz Carroll yesterday on
