Stormy Kromer and Interior Design

I’m a big fan of Stormy Kromer, so much so that I subscribe to their newsletter as I like to see all their fabulous hats.  I received the latest newsletter yesterday, New Year’s Day, and I love how the “Kromerism” applies to outerwear, interior design, and anything in between.     Now that the holidays are over and the […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you’ve still got some time before company arrives tomorrow, don’t confine the cornucopia to the table – there’s probably not room for it anyway once the food is served.

We have a suburban backyard with woods that have been somewhat dethroned by oak […]

I came across the story of the Navy chair, which is really named the Emeco 1006 chair. This aluminum chair is produced by the Electric Machine and […]

The Parsons Table

Its springtime and on college campuses all over, students are finishing up (hopefully) their semester projects. They can only hope that the result of their endeavors has the life span of the Parsons Table (originally named the T-square table)! This design classic was born out of a 1930’s course taught at the Paris Atelier (now […]

The Smoke Chair

My husband has never been a fan of distressed furniture. Why pay extra for something that we will do for free ourselves? It’s a safe bet that he wouldn’t embrace this chair… but I have. It’s called the Smoke Chair and it is part of a small series by designer Maarten Baas. The series includes […]

Coat Racks

Like many of you, we entertain larger numbers of people than normal during the holidays. In our house that means multiple episodes of empting the front closet to accommodate guests’ coats. It’s a yearly discussion: do we lug our coats upstairs and hide them in our bedroom to make way for company or to we […]
