Our Simmons Chair is ideal for your reading corner. The transitional shape would blend right into any interior. The Simmons Chair has a nice deep seat without requiring a large footprint in you floor plan. Its tailored, square arms slim the width to just 32" wide.

Design tip: Let your console perform double duty as both a decorative tabletop surface as well as a storage area for floating ottomans. To achieve this layered look, stow cube ottomans or footstools underneath your sofa table to keep the room clean and organized, and they'll always be at the ready when you need 'em.

Our multi-functional Pup Storage Ottoman would work perfectly in this installation! Store the Pup under our rustic Element Sofa Table, and pull it out when you need an extra seat or a place to prop your tired feet!

In my ongoing search for unique counter materials to top our rustic, reclaimed wood kitchen islands, I have come across some marvelous marble, stunning soapstone, and beautiful butcher block. But, I've recently discovered a new material that would elevate a rustic island to star status... Pewter!
I first spotted this unique installation at Thomas Keller's famed Bouchon Bistro in my neighboring town of Yountville.
The charming restaurant and bar attracts tourists and locals alike, and you'll always find several smiling faces gathered around their fabulous bar.
See the stunning pewter top in the images below...
The pewter can be cast in almost any size and shape, with varying edge detail options. The bar top in the famed Bouchon Bistro was commissioned in Paris, but I've found several resources online that exhibit beautiful craftsmanship in pewter, including one source right here in SF!

More reasons to love Bouchon Bistro...
charming bistro details
ever-changing daily specials
though, the bread and butter alone would satisfy
always a delightful snack
they have fashion mags and newspapers at the ready
it's a great spot for casual, outdoor dining too!
Don't miss the bakery next door!!!

My latest paint color obsession is Farrow and Ball's Mouse's Back #40. Like all the unique pigments in the Farrow and Ball line, this colour has amazing depth and plays with lighting beautifully.
"Mouse's Back No. 40" is described on the Farrow and Ball website as "A quiet, neutral dark stone or drab colour. Not to be recommended for use with white but very useful as an early 18th century colour."
See installations below:

Our new INDOOR/OUTDOOR CHAIRS are going to look great on your porch or patio!
The chairs appear to have all the texture and patina of weathered gray wicker, but they are actually made of resin to withstand the elements! You'll never believe how great they look and how comfortable they are until you see them in person.
