Marvelous Monday – Chair Lust.

We at F4 are huge fans of mid-century modern, Arts & Crafts and Hollywood Regency interior design aesthetics, among others and we are always looking for Barcelona Chairs for the office, interesting lighting fixtures (I recently aquired an old ceramic, bamboo-patterned lamp from the estate of Eva Gabor (!) that still needs the right DIY shade to restore its former glory) and all manner of a sort of Los Angeles meets Palm Springs meets Palm Beach in the mid-century aesthetic – think wood, leather, mirrors, etc.  eBay proves to be a great source, as are flea markets, but we don’t have terrific flea markets in the D.C. area.  Sigh.

Imagine my excitement when I saw THIS CHAIR on the CB2 website this morning.  It’s got it all – the classic 1938 “Butterfly” shape, vegetable-tanned leather and a gorgeous colour.  I can see it in a reading nook piled with Mongolian lamb pillows. The point is, for under $400, it’s a steal for your interior – and, psst..brides and grooms, something to add to your CB2 registry.  Enjoy.

As a mom, lifestyle expert, surfer and event planner, I love to discover the next uber-cool thing! Whether it's a shoe, a wine, a food, a photographer, a designer, a blog, a flower or a travel spot, you can find me trolling for it! I also like to blog about the kids and how running a household like this keeps me grounded. I love all things beautiful, but mostly Mr. F4 and the little ones, Ava and Leo. Things I love: sparkly anything, homecooked meals, snowy white sheets, holidays, photography, monograms, antique silver, reading everything I can get my hands on, Pilates, learning anything new, antiquing, gardening, collecting cookbooks and shoes, mixing slouchy sofas w/ sleek chairs, collecting china, the beach, Ruzzetti & Gow seashells, seersucker, Sharpies, Chanel lipgloss, counting my blessings. Drop me an email or a comment and I look forward to meeting you!
