11 Must-Haves!



Must-Haves in accessories and furniture

This month we’re going to have some fun with some must-haves in accessories and furniture that are great fun to share.

I selected these pieces because they are bold, stand-alone, or, terrific accents. I also chose them because they are all available right now at retail. So yes, you can purchase them yourself, and they’re Lauren Jacobsen Design approved!

BONE BURST CHEST-CERUSED OAK

William-D-Scott-Bone-Burst-Chest-Derused-0ak

WILLIAM D. SCOTT

This chest is by Emporium Home and sold at William D. Scott.  The introduction of a multi-drawered chest is an excellent addition to a room.  This one has a hand-pieced bone inlay and is made of solid wood that has a Cerused Oak finish (a process of rubbing a contrasting color into the pores of the wood to highlight the patterns of the wood grain), and solid brass hardware.

KASURI WOVEN WOOL RUG by Mark D. Sikes

FURBISH STUDIO

That moment when you walk into a room that has a featured throw rug can be a powerful thing.  I love adding rugs to a room for many reasons.  In larger rooms, they can be the piece that grounds all the furniture together, such as couches, chairs, and coffee tables. In a smaller area, they can create a beautiful vignette. Mark D. Sikes designed this rug and is made by rug maker, Annie Selke.  Inspired by an antique Kasuri indigo weaving, this wool jacquard rug is reversible.

HAMPTON OTTOMAN, DEER HIDE

ONE KINGS LANE

One Kings Lane offers this ottoman.  I like the x-shaped base and the nailheads on this piece. Not to mention the faux fur hide for texture and pattern.

“SUMMER SWIM” by T. S. Harris

T. S. HARRIS

This artist caught my eye.  The solitude at that moment is so peaceful, and the color palette is fantastic. The artist, T. S. Harris, was raised by two professional artists and currently lives and works in San Luis Obispo.  Local art is best when discovered.

LAREDO DINING TABLE

ONE KINGS LANE

This dining table from One Kings Lane is such a clean design.  It has a bronze metal frame and a quartz top.  It is very chic and perfect for a small space.  Round tables are usually my choice for small dining rooms.

DEVONSHIRE MIRROR

Devonshire Mirror by Chelsea House

CHAIRISH

Talk about a statement piece. The Devonshire mirror is by Chelsea House Inc. and is a very bright design. It is made of composite materials with antique gold details.  It would look good in a bath, bedroom, or entry.

MANOR BORN MADCAP COTTAGE WALLPAPER

YORK WALLCOVERINGS

I love this wallpaper.  “Madcap Cottage,” by York Wallcoverings, is made of pressed linen paper that is washable, and pre-pasted — such a whimsical design, and great for a spare bedroom.

ABSTRACT INDIGO VASES

WEST  ELM

I love the blue and white motif.  These are limited edition vases from West Elm.  They are handcrafted and hand-painted by artisans in Thailand.  The modern textures and styles bring a gorgeous look to these classically shaped pieces.  They are watertight, numbered, and sold individually.

KENTON 5pc PLACE SETTING

Crate-&-Barrel-Kenton-Gold-5pc-Place-SettingCRATE & BARREL

There is something about gold flatware that creates an elegant table setting.  These have a dual finish that contrasts matte handles with polished head and blades.  So sophisticated.  They are a Crate & Barrel Exclusive, and yes, they also come in silver and black.

RIDER PENDANT by Jonathan Adler

Perigold-Rider-Pendant-Jonathan-Adler

PERIGOLD

 

Jonathan Adler does it again.  This 4-light pendant design, created for Perigold, has horse finials, brass medallions, and turreted edges.  The gold is hand-painted, and it has powder-coated brass.  A stately piece, and is one that would be beautiful in a foyer.  I think it’s terrific.
