Showroom Stoppers

I view at least a dozen showroom websites a day when scouting out pieces for projects or looking for ideas. Here are few images from my favorite showrooms...

Hickory Chair

I love this rustic look.

Powell & Bonnell




The Louis Ghost chair is one of my favorites. I fell in love with it from the very beginning and decided I would spend the money I made from my own first interior design project for a client. Now I have one in my living room! I intend to put it in a large custom closet one day as an accent piece with a beautiful throw drapped over it...one day!

This is the perfect setting for a Ghost chair. I feel completely differently about them in this setting. So often they are used in concrete block interiors, but the whole point of being able to see through them is to see lovely architectural details of the room.

Brilliant Asylum -
I think what you said is so true! They are very overused as well, which is why I was hesitant to purchase one, but I love the shape and in a small apartment it is extra seating without looking like it takes up a chunk of the room.

Simplygrove - glad you liked the post, I get a lot of inspirations from showrooms' websites

Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual. http://living-room-decoration.blogspot.com
