Lounge Elegantly. The Glamour of a vintage settee or boudoir lounge is a must have for the Vanity Fair Lifestyle. Choose muted hues & graceful curves to express the softer side of bohemian life. Like this Spencer Chaise from Jayson Home & Garden upholstered in creme linen and burlap with a dusty light burnt oak finish.

A little Bohemian: A little Green.

“Little Uma” {picture directly above} is a carved french 19th century Rococo-style settee with it’s original turquoise patina. What makes her special and why I love the design house of Chair Couture, is their philosophy & passion to recycle French antiques and reupholster in bold modern or vintage flavored fabrics. What you get is a fabulous reinterpretation of bohemian whimsy + high fashion urban glam.

For the love of vanity fair ~ comes Marianne. This fabulous French country bed, Circa 1930, comes with it’s original gray-green patina + upholstered in one-of-a-kind “dandelion field” fabric.

About Margaret:
