Stockholm recently (well back in February) hosted a big furniture fair which I happily attended with one of my dearest friends and fellow blogger from “annagillar“. Unfortunately we ended up going around in a small circle, missing half of what was there, but we had a great time catching up on life and work in the meantime.
It´s always fun to mix and match different styles. It makes a room a little less strict and serious and gives more movement to a space.
The ever versatile and uber chic “Parsons” table has been a popular piece for many decorators. You can place it in classic interiors as easily as in more modern environments and you can pair it with just about any style of chair you can find.
According to the New York Times, the Parsons table got its name from French decorator Jean-Michel Frank, who assigned his students at Parsons in Paris to design a table that could be made equally well in any material, whether it be stone, plexiglas or wood. It´s main characteristics is that its legs are always the same thickness as its top.
Many furniture makers have made variations of this table which come in many sizes and finishes.
Here´s some interiors that have used the simple Parsons desk from West Elm. I think my latest bedroom project could be a great place for this.
“So many people arrange furniture in order to see what’s going on outside. But why? The view isn’t going anywhere.”—Interior designer Albert Hadley, May 10
Adirondack chairs on the lawn
Imagine sitting in your favorite chair, out on the lawn… overlooking the lake and the adirondack mountains. A drink in your hand and a book in the other… well, maybe in my case.. a magazine…
These white painted laid back chairs not only look great… they are super comfortable. Common as apple pie and peach cobbler in the U.S… adirondack chairs have also become hugely popular in Sweden as everyone is aspiring to have the typical New England dream house. I have to say, I am a little over the whole New England style and can´t yawn big enough when someone mentions it, but I do love these chairs.
If you´d like a pair of these on your porch or backyard… just contact us at K & Co. and we´ll place an order.
The overscale tufted back and frame detail make them exceptionally beautiful in my opinion.
If only I had a bigger apartment to host these…
