Retro Easy Chairs from the Times of Yore

The retro design fanatics for home furnishings are in for a treat here on homedit as we just finished talking about the DS32 lounge chairs and now we have a set of two leather lounge chairs by Percival Lafer, Brazil, which were finished in the 1960s. Again in this case, the leather has a nice patina and a little wear at the front which make these chairs look all the more stylish. The frame of this chair set has been carved out of rose wood and despite the times gone by, the product is still in very good condition.

Vintage or retro furniture pieces are a little more difficult to find, especially now when everyone is looking for modern or contemporary pieces. But there are still some very beautiful examples of retro items. I’m not a fan of this style so I can’t give many details about this item. All I can say is that it’s relatively simple chair with wood legs and leather cushion. It looks quite comfortable. I personally don’t like this chair, but like I’ve already said I’m not a fan of this style. So I leave this up to you, to decide if you like this piece or not.

As you can see it’s a set of two chairs, so they should be purchased together. It would make a nice addition to a home that shares the same style. I have something similar at home, also a set of two armchairs, also retro, and I can’t wait to replace them.

Marsotto Luxurious White Marble Accessories

You may get to buy bathroom accessories in all sorts of materials but white marble is still the most stylish and the most loved material for bathroom sinks, basins and shower trays. The Italian brand Marsotto has been loyal in maintaining its love for white marble and it has unleashed a new lineage of double sink vanity, washbasins and shower trays.

Nicola Giardini Papa designed this new range forMarsotto which caters to make a sweet statement in a modern dwelling. The perforated pattern can be seen on the basin bases, the sliding doors of the double sink vanity and underfoot in the shower tray

I like it when I see simple and modern bathroom features. That is a room that doesn’t need a lot of details. It’s supposed to be mainly functional. Of course, the aesthetic aspect can’t be neglected, so a combination between the two is the perfect choice. And this collection has it all. It’s simple, very functional and it has a nice modern look.

This collection is very beautiful. It’s modern and very elegant and would look great in a modern bathroom. The pieces are simple, except for the decorative pattern which is gorgeous. A simple and elegant detail like this one is everything you need to make a piece stand out and to look beautiful. In case you decide to purchase this collection, take into consideration the space, because this is not appropriate for a small bathroom.

The Pyramid Table from Stephane Thivend Loves Your Doodads

An ordinary table with a common flat top is no more an eye candy in your living space and you need to spice up life using items such as the pyramid shaped multimedia table from Stephane Thivend. The unusual looking table has a huge pyramid as its base and when you inspect it closely, the table contains a couple of speakers’ and a docking station for your iPod and the iPhone.

Instead of buying an individual set of speakers or a docking station for your favorite Apple gadgets, the wiser option is to bring this table home and serve a dual purpose. Not to forget that this table can also be a potential style statement in your living room, so it eventually serves three purposes.

Trendy Stump Stools from Cumulus Project

What is trendy is always in demand and I have mentioned numerous times that the customary furniture isn’t just good enough to spice up your living any more. You need itineraries like the Stump Stool from Cumulus Project to work up some magic. Stump Stools are made from wood harvested from fallen maple trees on the forest floor in Storm Bay, BC. Since the material used comes from fallen trees, it is nothing that the environmentalists will feel offended about. Talk about the upholstery and CP has used white leather and copper tacks over sustainably-harvested-latex foam.

These stools remain slightly off the floor which is a courtesy of their small and almost invisible feet. These stools are ideal for indoor use or the covered outdoors.

Be it the Darn Tootin, Barking Mad, Soft Spot or the Dash Away, you will need one of these rugs for sure if you understand what home décor is all about. You seldom come across so much variety being offered in a single collection and here is your opportunity to make your surroundings look all the more special.

If you think it is time to bring home some fresh and trendier looking bed linen, Bontempi Casa King and Calligaris have some wonderful bed furnishings ready to please your style penchant. Bontempi Casa King in particular whole heartedly wants your bed furnishings to be revamped from the core and there is a new lineage being offered which is beyond exemplary even when you look at all these images.

The most expensive one is the £533 ivory bed linen set from Bontempi while the most affordable one is the Calligaris summer double bed linen set which is modestly priced at £124.

The bedroom, as I see it, is the most important room in the house. And the most important piece of furniture from that room is the bed, which is obvious. So it’s very important to have a very comfortable bed, in order to be able to enjoy a relaxing night. But for that the bed is not sufficient.

You’ll also be needing the accessories like pillows and blankets, and of course a linen set. It’s important that every detail and element to be perfect, because everyone needs its sleep. I particularly pay a lot of attention to that because I like to sleep a lot. So the bed should be comfortable, starting with the mattress, the pillows and the bed linen set. Take a look a these examples and you’ll se why they are so complimented.

Christophe Pillet Designed Saint Tropez Lounge Chair

When it is Christophe Pillet working his magic on something, you can be rest assured of the quality and the style statement. Pillet has finished the Saint Tropez Lounge Chair for brand Porro (at the Salone del Mobile) and the creative item was a considerable attention grabber at the Milan Furniture Fair 2010.

Even in the simplest and neatest forms, this lounge chair is so much of an attraction and that is what Pillet brings to the table. The chair has a lovely low slung suspended seat and what makes it simple are the airy minimal lines of the base. Drag it into the sun, poolside, and have yourself a truly St. Tropez moment within your own vicinity.

I really really like this piece. It’s so simple and yet so beautiful and elegant. I like everything about it. The wooden legs, the way they cross together, the seat, the color, everything is beautiful. It’s a modern design that would look great in a home that shares the same style. Also, I’m sure it’s a very comfortable chair as well. If I were you I would definitely buy one of these. In fact you could even buy multiple items to form a collection. You can choose the same color or alternate the color tones for a little contrast. These chairs could be used both indoors and outdoors, as long as it’s in a protected area.
