I probably mentioned that I recently started curating product Ideabooks for Houzz. Yesterday I posted my newest Houzz Ideabook “Bye Bye Birdie, Hiya Birdie,” featuring a flock of feathered friend home furnishings. Playing off that, I added to the collection, with 31 bird-themed home furnishings and accessories, because really, spring will come soon. 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’m trying to come up with a spot in my apartment where I could install one of these super long-armed wall lamps. I’m over the industrial factory look (for my own space anyway). I like the bare bones minimal ones and also the Italian vintage styles from the ’50s, though I fear they’re a bit on the whimsical side for me. I think #15 is my favorite. Maybe in the family room, over the sofa? That room could use a little architectural-like interest. It’s much more practical than an annoying floor lamp. Many of these are pricey; the style hasn’t been knocked off in a frenzy by the usual suspects yet, so I didn’t really find any truly “low” options.
Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 45 Rooms with Sideboards, I’ve sourced 53 mostly modern sideboards, credenzas, buffets, or whatever else you’d like to call them. Many are pricey (a sideboard is a hefty piece of furniture), but there are a few inexpensive finds. I’ve always loved the Dandelion by Iannone Design, but I’m in serious love with the Florence Knoll in gray with the carrera marble top. (The Concrete low dresser at CB2 is a decent sub, minus the fancy slab.)
