We had an exciting day of installing some new things in a client's very special Living Room. It has been a long time coming, three years to be exact.
When my client's moved into their house, luckily, they already owned this beautiful Marcia Myers painting, baby grand piano and some other small pieces that we placed in the room. With concrete floors, 14 foot wood ceilings and a gorgeous steel bay window, I felt we needed at least one upholstered piece to anchor the room. So the decision was made to use a John Saladino Monteceito Sofa and the rest was history. Graham Saladino is always a big help with all our Saladino needs. Stop by the showroom in New York. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Yesterday, two beautiful tables, a rug and some other appointments arrived from an Atlanta buying trip I had several weeks ago. And, the pieces are even better in their new home than in the Atlanta shops.
Both tables came from Robuck and Company in Atlanta. If you haven't been, it's an absolute must see for your next trip to the Deep South. Shane and Kristen are both so awesome, absolute experts in their field and you know the product is top-notch.
Look at the beautiful top on this Italian table. It's stunning in its new location and one of the first things you see upon entering the front door.
This is another view of the Living Room. So sorry for the dim light in the photo, the sun was going down quickly.
Our next install was this special French table that is sitting on one end of the Saladino sofa. Perfect size, look and the wood is beautiful.
How pretty is the wood on the top? A must for me is a mix in my design. This home, though traditional in architecture, has a clean modern feel as well. The Saladino sofa juxtaposed with these beautiful new tables is perfection.
The next install was this spectacular appointment on the Dining Room table (ignore the dishtowel underneath the rock, we are going to have the bottom felted). This huge, beautiful and very special amethyst rock arrived from Atlanta perfect for our room. We have searched and looked and searched and looked for the perfect thing for the center of the table. The Dining Room is an exquisite room, stone interior walls, beautiful chandelier (again from Robuck & Co.), very special set of Dining Room chairs from Bush Antiques in New Orleans. I was in Atlanta, saw this, and knew it was just right.
This piece came from A. Tyner Antiques in Atlanta. Go see William there. He was with Regalo Antiques in Atlanta for years and now runs the A. Tyner showroom. Precious man with fabulous taste.
Sullivan Fine Rugs was gracious enough to send rugs galore for us to try in our space. Stunning and very special.
Stay tuned for the next installs coming up in the very near future. We've got some exciting things planned for this project.
We'll talk soon.
