Have a Seat

Best Finds: Party in a Glass

Yes, this Natalie Woodley-designed cup from the MOMA Design Store does have LED lights that make it light up and change colors when you pour liquid inside of it. And to top it off, the batteries are included! What more could you possibly want?

Inspiration: Designer Charlotte Ronson’s Kitchen

How could we not super-love this photo of designer Charlotte Ronson’s breakfast room featured on Domaine?! Brightly-colored mix-and-match seating around a simple wood and steel table: We’re in love. Get the look at home with a pair of the Verlaine Arm Chair in blue, a Marais A Side Chair in Pink, the Flint Bench, and the Rilo Table

Best Finds: Hantverk Collective Pillows

We felt like we had struck gold when we read about these great, bright colorblocked pillows on Lonny from Etsy vendor Hantverk Collective. The poplin-linen fabric combo makes for something that feels as good as it looks…we would love one of each style clustered together on a couch, a chaise, a daybed….

Best Art: Kelly Lynn Jones for Little Paper Planes

We love the e-commerce artist collective Little Paper Planes, so it’s no surprise that we’re currently going crazy over LPP-founder Kelly Lynn Joneslatest photographic series, currently for sale on the site. Jones revisits her past series, California Collection, this time exploring what it means to document the feeling of the great western state, as opposed to merely transcribe its physical presence. Says Jones, “I wanted to capture a feeling of a moment; something less tangible and more ephemeral.” Though with one of these prints on our wall, we can now live with the feeling all day long…

Inspiration: Photographer Alice Gao’s Home

Today, Rue Mag has a great feature on super cool photographer Alice Gao‘s New York City apartment. We were excited enough for a peek into this keen eye’s personal space, but absolutely went gaga once we saw her way-stylish kitchen with Lucia-style chairs in white! (Also, check out the Lucia-like rocking chair in blue in her living room!) Take a page from one of the greats and use our Lucia collection to create a similar look in your own home.

Style Tip: Perfectly Imperfect Interiors

The folks at Lonny have put together a killer slideshow of images to help guide the way in creating your own perfectly imperfect (inspired by T Magazine editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman’s book by the same name) interiors. Looking for some quick tips to get quirky, cool, comfortable digs? Bring in unexpected, personal pieces that hold lots of memories (and can start a conversation), don’t be afraid to mix different textiles, taxidermy is your friend, and embrace unusual seating.

Inspiration: Keri Russell’s Brooklyn Home

We love Felicity and we love Keri Russell…so it was basically a no-brainer when it came to loving these lush images of the television star’s meditative, cozy Brooklyn brownstone home. We’re particularly partial to her kitchen and dining area: We love the combination of a classic wire chair with a more natural feeling wood-topped table.

Inspiration: OscarPRGirl Erika Beamon’s Hamptons Home

In honor of Fashion Week, we wanted to share this gorgeous slideshow of photos from Elle Decor of the Miles Redd-designed Hamptons home of Erika Bearman, better known to her legion of Twitter followers as OscarPRGirl. (Mr. de la Renta showed his Spring / Summer 2014 collection, stunning as always, today, as well!) We loved the bold use of color and the playful combining of the traditional and the contemporary, creating a space warm, inviting and as stylish and timeless as the iconic Oscar himself…

Inspiration: Villa Extramuros, Portugal

While our bodies are firmly planted in the beginning of fall and the serious pursuits that come with the new season, our heads are still longing for a bit of summertime adventure…which is why we were practically drooling over the escape provided in photographer Australian Vanessa Jackman’s images from her recent stay in Villa Extramuros in Portugal. Take a look and prepared to be inspired…and transported. You’ll be brimming with ideas (Carrera chairs, white Marais stools, and the Greenline Dining Table, anyone?) to enliven your home with this refined, easy European elegance even as the leaves start to change.
