I know it’s wrong but I just can’t help myself. I’m breaking one of the commandments (or something like that) but I can spend hours just drooling over pictures of chairs , chandeliers and rugs. The curve of a lamp can just get me going and don’t get me started on textiles…
In no particular order, below are some pictures of things I’m currently coveting (I have to warn you, I’m going through a heavy retro phase).
I am currently craving lucite, perspex, plexi-glass – whatever you call it, I call it s-s-s-sexy. It’s got that see through, now you see me, now you don’t, kind of vibe going on that’s kind of irresistible. Plus, it’s really great when you’d like to add in some substantial furniture but avoid the bulk. I am especially digging plexi-glass chairs based on classic chair design like the one above.
I know this chair by Pedro Friedeberg is kind of kitschy (maybe that’s what’s so glorious about it), but I think it’s a lot of fun precisely because it doesn’t take its self too seriously. I think it would look fab in a really sophisticated living room with lot’s of grays and creams. It would be such a great contrast
I also love these pale blue Murano lamps I found on 1st dibs. They’re only $4200 (not each - for the pair, darling), so I’ll certainly be adding them to my home soon. I think I’ll put them in my son’s room. At that price, who cares if he breaks one?
All kidding aside, I think these lamps are to die for and when I win the lottery they’re mine!
I’m also loving this Emil Stejnar Sputnik Chandelier. Again, my thing is to add one piece of “sizzle” to the room. So this would hang as the definitive feature element.
Maybe it’s because my step-mom, Toni, has one of these, but I just love the look of Chinese Art Deco Rugs. They have so many color’s and the asymmetrical designs are beautiful and unexpected. Such a departure from today’s boring “chinese” carpets.
Well, that’s my covet list for today. What are you currently coveting?
