Things We Love: Cane

Good morning, friends! Are you having a great week? We hope so. We can’t believe it’s Thursday already–and time to tell you about one of the things we love!

We are long-time fans of cane, not just for chairs but for all kinds of pieces around the house.

We stumbled upon a gorgeous pair of antique cane chairs at an antique store several years ago and almost passed them over because they needed a bit of repair on the seats, which were covered with cushions. But, with the right expert, they got a new life and are now happily across from my desk.

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.

There’s no space where cane is out of place.

Or your favorite place to dream a night away with a beyond perfect view, cane is a classic way to add a chic touch to any space or piece.

Good morning, lovely readers! Are you having a good week? We are… except for one tiny detail. Yesterday, I had my first really epic fail as a parent. Or, well, I’m sure I’ve had lots of epic parenting fails but this was the first time that my son was old enough to really notice my massive failure. So that’s a new thing. And, let me tell you: It’s not great.

Things We Love: Chesterfield Sofas

Fabulous tufting in any fabric you please, Chesterfield sofas are some of our favorite home decor essentials.

In fact, one of my very favorite things in my whole house is a pair of leather style Chesterfield sofas. They’re white and comfy and look great dressed up or dressed down. And, miraculously, they have withstood more than a few crayon catastrophes.

An Amazing Mantel

 The focal point of the room, the frame for a fabulous fire, the display place for that perfect artwork… The mantel serves so, so many purposes.

And so, from the living room to the den and everything in between, a fabulous mantel is more than just a slab of wood and should be arranged as such.

Pair of Sofas

 Happy Monday, friends! We hope you all had an amazing weekend and, for those of you dropping your kids off this morning, I hope you’re braver than I am! Thank goodness I have one of my favorite decor items to distract me this morning: pairs of sofas!

 We think that a pair of sofas like these, flanking a fireplace is one of the most fabulous furniture combinations! And, when that room is bathed in cozy neutrals, all the better!
