On Trend: Black and White in Home Decor

Black and white provides that bold graphic punch that never goes out of style. You can stick with strictly the two colors (well, technically, white is the absence of color and black is all of the colors, or I think I learned something like that in art class, but I digress … ), or you can add dashes of other colors. Bold orange, taxicab yellow, royal blue and turquoise are just a few favorites I like to use with black and white around my own home. Whatever you chose, here are ten picks of the combination at its best.

Last Chance To Save 20% Off Gus*Modern Upholstered Pieces

Just a reminder that our sale on Gus*Modern upholstered pieces is ending soon. So take the weekend to think it over and get your orders in by Sunday (August 17, 2014) at midnight EST. If you haven’t had a chance to glance over the options, here’s a peek at a few of the highlights.

Gus*Modern has great sofa selections, whether you’re looking for a loveseat, full-sized or a sectional. The Jane Loft Bi-Sectional Sofa is very versatile. Its metal base lends it well to a loft, while its tufting lets it fit right in with a more traditional family room.

Speaking of versatile, one of my favorite pieces is an upholstered ottoman. The Gus*Modern Henry Ottoman can serve as coffee table, a footrest and extra seating in a pinch. It also looks great at the end of a bed or in an entryway.

Gus*Modern GT Rocker is a new classic. WIth its simple modern silhouette, it references mid-century style with a contemporary twist. The hard steel base contrasts with the contoured soft upholstered seat and back. It’s a great accent piece for a living room, home office, family room or bedroom.

Gus Modern Carmichael Bed

The Gus Modern Carmichael Bed is clean-lined yet soft. Its wingback headboard nods to traditional style in a contemporary way. It also includes a support system that eliminates the need for a box spring, and its upholstered side rails eliminate the need for a bedskirt.

This is just a tiny sample of all the great modern pieces you can save on through Sunday. So go take a last look and make your decision while you can still save 20%!

Also, there is always an ever-changing inventory of stock in the Design Public Outlet. These are returns that are discounted for reasons like “opened box” or  the plastic wrap has been opened. In fact, almost every item I’ve purchased here came from the Outlet, because I watch it like a hawk! The outlet does not give you time to dilly-dally around, there is usually only one of each item shown, but if you’re sure you want something, get it while you can, like this Thomas Paul Flax Pine 22″ Pillow in Cocoa. I love that this is business in the front, party in the back (or vice-versa? you decide):

The New Classics: Predicting Iconic Furniture for 2050

Becky

Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky
4 Comments »

I ate up the cover story on The New York Times’ Home Section today; “The Classics, Circa 2050.” For one thing, I’m always trying to determine what the new classics are (i.e. new furniture that will eventually gain icon status, today’s equivalent of a mid-century icon like a Wegner Wishbone Chair or an Eames Shell Chair). Beyond aesthetics and one’s own judgement, a sign that a piece may be well on its way to icon status is if it’s a part of a museum’s collection. Another when prominent architects choose to use it in their own homes.

Anyway, I was very pleased to see a handful of my favorite products that Design Public carries made the cut. Here they are:

The Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck for Kartell (this probably inspired the most discussion)

The Emeco Navy Chair already had mid-century icon status in my book, now the experts are choosing the latest version, made from 111 recycled plastic bottles, the 111 Navy Chair.

Kartell scored again, with their Bourgie Lamp by Ferruccio Laviani

Vitra’s Algue made the cut

Tod Boontje’s Until Dawn Curtain made the cut, we love the way his botanical cuts look on the Midsummer Light

There were a few others I would have added to the list:

Sori Yanagi’s Butterfly Stool, manufactured by Vitra

The Coral 600 Pendant Lamp by David Trubridge

Bend Seating Lucy by Gaurav Nanda

Blu Dot Modulicious Case Goods

Nobody asked me, by the way! But I’m asking you – Which recent furniture and accessories do you think will achieve icon status in 30 years? Keep in mind the process can involve becoming unpopular or passé for a decade or three and then re-appreciated later. Personally, I have trouble looking beyond chairs and lighting most of the time.
