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.
