  • It's that time again - Annual Knoll SALE - woot!

    The Knoll Sale is once again upon us and life is good. For those unfamiliar with Knoll, prepare to be delighted. As a design house with over 40 pieces displayed in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, this manufacturer is an invaluable source to those with an adoration for Mid Century Modernism.



    Knoll's MCM collection includes classics such as Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair, Mies Van Der Rohe's Barcelona series, and my own personal fave, Harry Bertoia's Bird Chair.






    Read our previous post, "Top 10 reasons why Harry Bertoia's Bird Chair is the Coolest", here.

    Aside from MCM offerings, Knoll also boasts a respectable collection of contemporary designs. Receiving the "Best of NeoCon Gold Award for Seating" is Knoll's Generation Chair by Formway Design. GREENGUARD certified and holding several LEED credits, this chair is ergonomic innovation and design all in one neat and flexible package.


    Other contemporary designs include Maya Lin's stone stools of 1998 and Antti Kotilainen's 2002 "Chip" series including dining chairs and barstools.






    All Knoll products on are on sale at an additional 15% off of our already low prices now until October 2nd. Now is the time to treat yourself to good design and support authentic design at the same time.

  • Eye Spy ... Draper Stripe by DwellStudio

    DwellStudio's Draper Stripe is divine. That is the truth (and a bit of alliteration to boot).

    Bed linens, rugs, cozy throws... My only wish that I could take one of those runners and wrap them around my waist to wear as a sweetly structured mustard yellow skirt.



    The area rugs are flat woven, composed of 80% wool/20% cotton. Simple but graphic - a perfect addition to any hallway, living room, or bedroom needing to fill their stripe quota. Yes, I am suggesting that there is a stripe quota for any and all rooms to fill. Stripes are awesome. Every room should have a few.


    Of course, if you are donning your bed in stripes with the 100% cotton percale, 320 thread count Draper Stripe duvet set... then perhaps the area rug is not necessary. This stripe looks amazing on a bed, particularly when the duvet is turned down at an angle and a bit ruffled ... a mish-mash of stripes. I know that everyone loves a duvet that looks *better* when rumpled.
