Get the Look: 22 Modern Gray Sofas

I put Montage: 54 Living Rooms with Gray Sofas together last summer, but never provided a shopping guide.  I created the roundup when I started to work on my friend Meredith’s NYC condo. We did it all remotely, and I haven’t even seen it yet, but she recently sent me a photograph and I’m happy to report that it looks really good, especially the living room, for which we spent a lot of time looking at modern grey sofas. We wanted one that looked great but was still plenty comfortable.

We used a gray sofa with clean lines, the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Nicholas sofa along with turquoise Addison chairs by Jonathan Adler, a tufted wool rug by Angela Adams, and a mirrored console she purchased years ago from Horchow.

And now for your 22 modern gray sofas.

Get the Look: 72 Bar + Counter Stools

As I mentioned yesterday, we chose the bar stools for Meredith + Daniel’s  kitchen. Although we arrived at an obvious and eternally perfect classic (Bertoia!), I looked at a lot of examples of bar & counter stools. Lucky you, they’re detailed below.

First though, let’s have a lesson about rules for bar stools and counter stools:

What’s the difference between a bar stool & counter stool?
If you’ve ever shopped for kitchen stools, you’ve noticed that they come in two heights. The standard height for a bar stool is 30″, while the average height for a counter stool is about 26″.

How to choose the right height bar & counter stool?
You’ll want 8″ to 12″ of leg room between the stool and the bottom of your counter/table.

Consider the overhang.
You might find that counters with a very deep overhang call for a slightly shorter stool.

How much space should you allot between stools?
For stools 16″-18″ wide, allow about 22″ of space between them. For stools 19″-22″ wide, allow about 24″ of breathing room. Leave even more space for swivel stools and stools with arms.

I didn’t even realize that the stools I use in Boston and Cape Cod are
Last Minute bar stools by Patricia Urquiola.

Get the Look: 46 Modern Dining Tables

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining room schemes are complete, I’ve put together my favorites from  my exhaustive search for dining tables. I’ve included a bit of everything here—round, elliptical, and rectangular—including tables that expand and fold up. Most are modern in style, some are vintage, materials run the gamut from scrap wood to marble, and prices range from $179 (IKEA!) to a piece by Autoban for De La Espada for $12,595.

I’ve been a huge fan of #3 for weeks, and it was just in a kitchen I wrote about for the Boston Globe Magazine. I can’t help but love the Saarinen (I have the side tables and they’re just so satisfying). I really love the mix of marble & rough wood, not to mention the price, of #1. #16 is pretty, and #44 and #46 are great reflections of current trends—dipped and geo. Any favorites here, or that I may have left out?

Get the Look: 48 Office Chairs that Swivel

As I mentioned yesterday, I need a new desk chair. Not only is mine falling apart, lately, the seat seems really hard. (Not sure why, all of a sudden.) So, when Tesco (yes, the British supermarket) got in touch asking me to tout its great office chairs selection, I figured it was a good a time as any to investigate. I found the usual suspects by Knoll and Herman Miller at Design Within Reach and Smart Furniture, and some high end contemporary models at Hive and Unica Home. Of course I browsed IKEA, West Elm, and CB2 for some less expensive choices too.

My favorites, the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair and the Eames Aluminum Executive, are both way too expensive, Any other thoughts? Here’s my desk:

Get the Look: 55 Coffee/Cocktail Tables

I’ve already given you the rundown on our living room coffee table situation yesterday. I realize I provide photos of our apartment when I talk about it, but that would require more tidying than I have time for, not to mention camera skills.

We sort of need a coffee table for our family room too, but I hate to take up the limited and cozy floor space. And it would be in the way during Oakley’s playtime. (My cat, not my kid.) I daresay side tables must suffice. In any case, here are 55 coffee/cocktail tables. More than a few are amazing.
