Get the Look: Upholstered Swivel Chairs In Every Color

This Sunday was the last 2014 Boston Globe Magazine home decor issue. The theme was “Make It Your Own.” I wrote a several features for it (I will blog about La Tartine Gourmande blogger Bea Peltre’s colorful home soon and well as a South End condo with industrial style decor.) They’re two of my all time favorite spaces about which I’ve written.

In addition to the features, I put together the StyleWatch product page, which highlighted seven colorful upholstered swivel chairs. Swivel chairs are a perennial favorite of interior designers. A pair of swivel chairs can bridge the two separate conversation areas in an oversize living room. In the family room, swivel chairs can face either the sofas or the television, allowing for multi-function flexibility. Designer Alys Protzman, who decorated this yellow and white cottage on Cape Cod, likes to place a cluster of swivel chairs around a table to create an entire seating area that delights kids and adults. (Spin, spin, spin.)

There are lots of different types of swivel chairs available for living spaces, including mod styles on pedestals. Other than the one Jonathan Adler swivel chair I included here (because I just couldn’t resist it), these upholstered swivel chairs resemble traditional easy chairs that one would not expect to rotate. These upholstered swivel chairs would work in any room, whether to serve two functions near a television or open kitchen, or used as a reading chair by a window in the bedroom. (Or just use it to pile clothing on and swivel it away from you when it becomes overloaded.)

Here are 45 upholstered swivel chairs in every color as well as some patterns.

Get the Look: 42 Modern Desks For Your Home Office

I’ve been so focused on Florida (though not nearly enough, as I’ve yet to order rugs, shades, or decide on the pink problem in the bathroom), that I’ve neglected organizing and upgrading in Boston. Coming back in the fall from the Cape, I’m always bothered by the amount of stuff we have. Too. Much. Stuff. It’s particularly striking because not only is the place on the Cape a lot bigger, being a house instead of an apartment, it’s white and virtually empty.

Here, in addition to crown moldings and bookshelves lined with coffee table books (one of the best perks of being a blogger), there’s , well, everything. The piles of dishes still not put away from the bar mitzvah in February (because, after all, we’re having another one this coming February), our bicycles in the living room until it gets too cold to ride and we store them, etc.

I’ve been promising my younger son that I would work on his bedroom. Meaning, I would clear out all the outgrown clothing and extra bedding I’ve been keeping in there. Done! He has the upholstered armchair that I used to nurse them on when they were babies. It’s taking up a ton of space that would be better used for a desk. He’s starting to get a fair amount of homework, plus, like me, he’s very organized, so I think he’d love to have drawers where he can store supplies.

Our other son has a little desk from IKEA, which when it’s cleared, he actually likes to use (not for homework, though). When he was away at a boarding school program this summer he lived in student housing, with a room furnished in typical dorm style (by a company like Peelmount) that outfits dorm rooms with sturdy wood beds, desks, and dressers. It’s kind of incredible that those designs haven’t changed, in like, ever. Blocky oak stands the test of time, I suppose. In any case, I’m not looking for anything as practical as all that. A small, affordable, modern desk is all we need.

Here are 42 modern desks, almost all of them well-priced (and one very extravagant example).

Get the Look: 28 Modern Platform Beds

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done a furniture roundup, and since I’ve been thinking about mattresses, namely going up to a king on Cape Cod, where we have a platform bed, I settled on pulling together modern platform beds. We have a gorgeous white oak contemporary platform bed that we purchased before the house was done. We used the wood sample as inspiration for the white oak floors. We’re always bumping into its sharp corners though.

Everybody seems to be obsessed with upholstered headboards these days (I have one of those too, a white slipcovered upholstered bed from Pottery Barn), but I prefer the clean lines of a platform bed. As stylish furniture goes, a platform bed is clean, simple, and functional. Plus there are a number of styles, from low-to-the-ground upholstered beds, like the Nook Platform Bed by Blu Dot, which comes in a bunch of fun colors, to inexpensive platform beds with storage drawers that are good for kids’ rooms, to platform beds with integrated nightstands like the Skyline Modern Platform Bed and the Contour Walnut Platform Bed with Wood Slat Headboard.

Here are 28 modern platform beds in a variety of materials and silhouettes. (The prices are for queen size, unless indicated, but many come in other sizes too.)

I probably mentioned that I recently started curating product Ideabooks for Houzz.

Meanwhile, add a bird pillow, bird figurine, bird bowl, bird rug, bird wallpaper, bird artwork, or even a bird toilet brush holder, to your decor.

I put together furniture and accessories so you can re-create the living room, dining room, and desk area of a the condo I featured as yesterday’s blog post: “Design Diary: Boston Pied-a-Terre by Ana Donohue.” Interior designer Ana Donohue decorated the two bedroom in Boston’s Back Bay for clients who live full time in Bermuda.

Montage: Cognac Colored Leather Sofas

We all know that a classic brown leather Chesterfield sofa can look quite dignified in a traditional library setting. Thinking of other types of leather sofa in rich luggage tones, one might imagine a Danish modern setting, or something quite Italian and sleek. But there’s an in-between. I actually wouldn’t have guessed that I’d find so many examples of cognac colored leather sofas so easily, and that they’d be in such tasteful decors, including Scandinavian interiors,  Brooklyn brownstones, modern houses, and bohemian lofts. These leather sofas mix as well with sheepskin as they do with kilims. Some are clean-lined sectionals, other a tad squishy. While most are in mainly white settings, many are mixed with deep reds, or yellow and green accessories. Here are 26 rooms with cognac colored leather sofas that are worth studying (and emulating). For shopping suggestions see: “Get the Look: 28 Leather Sofas in Cognac, Tobacco, & Caramel.”

Following on yesterday’s Montage: Bedroom Sconces post, I’ve spent the snowy evening pulling together 30 modern and industrial bedroom sconces for you. They vary in style, but they’re each appealing in their own way, and would look beautiful on either side of a bed.

Get the Look: Multicolor Dinnerware

I got an email this morning alerting me to the new and very colorful dinnerware collection by The Novogratz, now available at Macy’s (see #9). That’s Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the husband and wife design duo and parents of seven children, whose fun aesthetic has been the subject of an HGTV show and several collections for CB2. I’ve long been a fan of the CB2 Family rug, which is sadly no longer in production. (I’d kinda been thinking about using it in our Florida condo.)

The dinnerware would look great in an all white decor, which got me thinking, what other colorful tabletop patterns are available, if one were to extend beyond white or basic neutrals Here are 17 multicolor dinnerware options I found. I’ve always loved iitala Origo (#10), and Donna’ Wilson’s pink pastel (#4) is adorable, if you had the right Scandinavian inspired space. Would you stray from white for any of these?

Get the Look: 31 Modern Menorahs

Today is the start of the holiday/present season at my house. It is my oldest son’s birthday—he’s 13. Not sure how that happened. But so begins the onslaught of material consumption. Chanukah is in three days. Before I go to bed I’m going to pull out our menorahs so I can start chipping away at last year’s wax drippings (unless by some miracle—’tis the season after all—I cleaned them before returning to the velvet boxes last December.)

We have a few menorahs: the electric one all Jews grew up with, that goes in the window; beautiful modular ones from MoMA that my mother-in-law gave us; a traditional “Tree of LIfe”; a more contemporary version of the tree, from a friend as a wedding gift; a cute metal train I purchased for the boys when they were little; and an artisan-made wrought iron menorah, also from my mother-in-law (who’s not even Jewish by the way, but loves to participate).

There are a number of modern menorahs available, some by Israeli artists, others by contemporary Jewish architects and designers (Jonathan Adler, he’s a Jew). Here are 31 of my best modern menorah finds.
