plantation, delivered to a client's home this afternoon, to be used as extra seating in an intimate, family-friendly media room off a kitchen. the chairs are a great size for our needs- somewhere between a lounge chair and a side chair, and we covered them in a hard-wearing white vinyl, so they'll still match the sophisticated look, and black & white color palette of the adjacent kitchen, yet can stand up to whatever abuse the resident toddler may accidentally inflict- no reason why kid-friendly can't be stylish too! we are very pleased with the finished look of the chairs...
dash and albert indoor/outdoor rug, (available here in LA @ hd buttercup). again, completely kid proof, and looks like a million bucks, though it didn't cost anywhere near that! and if a pb&j is accidentally squished into the rug, it can simply be hauled out on the adjoining patio and hosed off- how's that for easy care?
hicks pendants we shared with you on an earlier posting, which hang above the island in the adjacent kitchen (the good folks at circa provided stellar customer service when one of the glass globes arrived with a minor flaw, btw). we've cropped the above photo to a) preserve a little mystery as to the look of the finished project, and b) not lessen the prettiness of the fixtures, as the room was covered in dropcloths and construction debris when the photo was snapped. plus, we're really hoping you'll finally get to see all these elements pulled together in their finished glory when the home graces the pages of a future issue of house beautiful! (hey, a decorator can dream can't he?)
enjoy your weekend!
