Get the Look: 48 Pendant Lights Perfect for Hallways

Following up on yesterday’s post Montage: 28 Hallways With Pendants, I’ve rounded up 48 pendant lights that are perfect to use in succession in long (or short) hallways. Good lighting definitely works to improve home ambiance and helps keeps moods lifted, especially in these dark winter months. (As much as I loved Copenhagen, I suppose it’s best I don’t live in Scandinavia.)

I tend to refer to our downstairs as a dungeon (we live on the parlor and lower levels, so to speak), but at least the lower levels house the bedrooms. Thankfully the living room, where my desk (and work sofa!) is has a large bay window that looks onto a lovely urban view of historic buildings, and right now, trees with  lingering red and gold leaves. The ceiling is also rather low, so likely I’ll have to go with flush or semi-flush mount fixtures, but I wanted to provide you with an array of pendants that would enliven more prominent (or humdrum but high) hallways.

Cuing off the styles in yesterday’s post, you can see that pretty much any style of pendant can work. I think I’ve sourced a few of all the examples shown: wicker pendants, copper & brass pendants, schoolhouse pendants, industrial cage pendants, colorful and all black dome pendants, classic lanterns, geo faceted pendants, simple drum pendants, glass pendants (including swirly Murano glass styles), capiz shell pendants, Moroccan style star pendants, globe pendants, and the ever trendy bare bulb fixtures.

Get the Look: 20 Modern Sleeper Sofas

I’ve done a number of sofa roundups of a variety of sofas from gray sofas to blue velvet sofas—but I have yet to pull together a collection of sleeper sofas for you. With summer guests on the horizon, I think it’s a good idea to examine some sofa bed options.

Choosing sofa beds can be tricky, since the sofas need to be deep enough to accommodate some type of mattress wide enough to pose as a bed. This means they can be bulky; hardly the contemporary look I favour. There are a number of options that go beyond the futon, but stay simple and sleek. Even the more comfortable upholstered sofa beds for sale these days have a streamlined silhouette.

I wrote a post on daybeds a while back, so I haven’t included any here save for one sectional piece that’s admittedly more of a daybed than traditional sleeper. On the Cape I have DWR’s Twilight in green which I love, but as for my old sleeper-sofa with the thin mattress and metal bar that pops out of the sofa – not so much.

Sleeper sofa design has improved, but still, if you’re shopping for a traditional sleeper, look for constructions that solve that issue. Mitchell Gold sofas tend to be great compromises for a plush upholstered sofa with a bed inside. [Availability of items checked and updated on 1-18-17]

Get the Look: 32 Upholstered Headboards

Silent night loves StyleCarrot. Looking for a high quality bed? Don’t forget to take a look at the beds and mattresses from Silent night.

Here are 32 beds to go along with yesterday’s collection of rooms with upholstered headboards. My favorites are the Serena & Lily silhouettes, though I also love the first DwellStudio and the Oly Ingrid in Raffia. The IKEA is quite ingenious; it’s actually not upholstered, but a fabric cover that slips over the metal frame. For a more modern look, the BluDot Nook looks cozy.

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: 47 Modern Fireplaces and Fireplace Accessories

Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 31 Freestanding Fireplaces, here is a sampling of fireplaces and accessories, both contemporary and antique. There’s really no excuse not to have a flame of fire—small tabletop models fueled with ethanol can be had at Home Depot. You can even get one that hangs on your wall. Interesting. I’ve had my eye on the minimalist tempered glass screens for our fireplace on the Cape, though I think I need a custom one since it’s raised a foot or two from the floor. I think I’ll concentrate on retrofitting a gas model in our defunct fireplaces in Boston instead.
