Clean lines, monochromatic, dramatic in its restraint and simply beautiful. The latest private residence by Albano Daminato. Design classics by Hans Wegner, Warren Platner, Eero Saarinen and Arne Jacobsen are combined with custom pieces and layered with the textures of oak, hand woven rugs and travertine stone adding depth to the monochromatic palette. Sometimes colour is just not necessary to make a statement.
Californian interior designer Jamie Bush “is recognized for his ability to mix period and contemporary furnishings with a fresh and discerning eye. Layering rich colors and textures with exotic and organic elements transforms each of his spaces into an inviting, modern, and unexpected environment.” He has a very impressive portfolio that includes mid-century, modern, minimalist and contemporary designs – all which are guaranteed to knock your socks off.
So forget about my post the other day about the Eames shell side chair that I found that I was going to make my office chair. That will now be an office visitors chair. Because I scored this a couple hours ago, for $160:
What’s kind of funny is the guy I bought the yellow chair from was supposed to email me a photo of a kelly green shell chair he had that I told him I was interested in (he never did). I’m glad he didn’t because this one is WAY better!!! (And ignore the background of the photo – my office needs ALOT of work).
A reader wrote the other day looking for some lighting inspiration. Darcy is thinking about purchasing an Arco lamp and hoped we could post some photos that include these lamps. Not a problem, since it is so popular in modern spaces. It is a very versatile lamp, used often in living rooms to anchor a seating area. It is also a fantastic solution in a dining room if there is no wiring above a dining table for a pendant light. My favourites are the retro versions with fiberglass shades. I covet one that I bought for $15 while thrifting one weekend. Hope this helps you come to a decision (to buy one) Darcy.
