What's New?

 

new2500

What's new?  Well, everything in the above picture, for one thing.  The new Wisteria catalogue is filled with wonderful new items including a line  called the "French Industrial Collection" - which the coffee table is a part of.   What else is new out there in catalogue and online land?

new2200

Wisteria:  new love seat, garden seats, and French Industrial Collection side table.

new450

Great new antiqued tripod lamp for $450 fits right in with Wisteria's French Industrial Collection. African Kuba cloth pillows pop on their new white sofa with the distinctive lines.

new130

Wisteria's wonderful small oval mirror mimics an antique, just $130.

new249

Wisteria's new French styled chair is one of my favorites - a bargain at just $250.  The desk is new too.  I love the faux antique station clock - $150.

new799

Wisteria's French Industrial Collection bookcases come in two sizes.  This large size is $799.

new450a

This sunburst mirror from Wisteria looks almost authentic to me.  $450.

new980

This desk is not new, but it's been out of stock for ever.  Available now, finally, according to the web site.   I think this is one of the prettiest repros on the market today, especially for the price, only $980.

new1300&299

This metal table is great indoors or out.  I'd do the table with rattan chairs myself. 

new1250

Again, not new, but finally in stock after being unavailable for months.  Great look for $1250.

new500a

Last from Wisteria - stacking shelves for $500. These would be great in a kid's room, a kitchen, or as a buffet.

Pottery Barn is filled with surprises lately.  What's going on there?  The designs have stepped up a notch. These French styled metal chairs are fabulous!  So are the pendants.  The wood table isn't bad itself.

This bed is ingenious - the fabric pops out to change seasonally with the bedding.  I love the way the baskets fit underneath the wooden frame.  Great for a teenage girl whose taste changes monthly.

new900

Pottery Barn's new architect desk and chair.  Pottery Barn?  $900 for the desk, I kid you not!  The chair is too cool.

  new1100

From Pottery Barn again, a jute daybed.  Comes as a regular bed too.  This is a great look for a boy's bedroom.

Pottery Barn has expanded their painted pieces line to include different shapes.  My favorite is the white three drawer dresser that would make great nightstands.   Very affordable.  Lots of "look" for the money.

 new20

Zebra has made it to PB.  Besides the pillows, they are selling zebra towels and sheets and rugs.  Sheets and towels come in leopard in case you're getting sick of zebra. Personally, I still love zebra.

new1850

Williams Sonoma Home is a much pricier catalogue than most.  But their furniture is a cut above their cheaper counterparts.  I love this chinoiserie inspired bench.  It comes in cream or black and also comes in side and arm chairs.   From Hickory Chair Collection via WSHome.

new950

"Folly corner chair" from WSHome, Hickory Chair Collection.  I love this chair for the corner or not.  Comes as a "regular" chair, also. $950.

new2450

Sleek, glamour filled vanity from WSHome.  Hard to believe a piece so stylish is from a catalogue.   Not cheap, but at least it looks it's $2450. price tag.

 

new2950

A red French chest from WSHome would pop in a family room or a bedroom.

new360

Here's how WSHome displays their French chest and chair and blue stripe dhurri and bedding. 

new78#22

Lulu inspired silk pillows with coordinating back fabrics.   These are just two choices of the many hip and trendy pillows from WSHome.

new150w

New from West Elm:  the spine bookshelf, seen just on the back wall to the left.  At $150, this Design Within Reach knockoff is much cheaper at West Elm.  I just bought two of them to try to corral my design books now that I am out of shelf space.  It's amazing how many books it holds.

Ballard Designs has a new wood and tufted coffee table that looks pretty good on paper at least.  At $700, it's probably worth it.

Ballard's has great indoor outdoor polyprophelene rugs.  I sell these kind of rugs for high traffic areas - they are indestructible.

Ballard Designs is now making these great sheer slipcovers for their cane folding chairs.

 The Elysee Collection from France has a new line for women designed by women called "An Evening in Paris."   Not a catalogue, but an online company  that sells beautiful French reproductions.  The owner emailed me these new pieces which I think are adorable! 

Here, Marie Antoinette is painted on a chest.

Two more chests from the new collection - aren't these the most adorable things?

Circa Lighting from Houston debuts Michael S. Smith's new line.  Here is my favorite of the pieces.

545365

The line includes sconces and chandeliers in silver, brass, and bronze.

545385

This Michael S. Smith designed lamp has received lots of advertising in all the magazines this month.

294422

Smith also designs for Kallista - here is his version of a stone farm sink.

 294428

And Smith designed what has to be the prettiest toilet around - with it's wood seat and lid!

 295603

Another favorite of mine in the line is this kitchen island that Smith designed.  You can view all his collections on his web site here.

Anthropoligie recently added these two new mirrors.  One oval, one square, both with gilding and both only $148.00  Great for a powder room or over a small vanity.

One of my favorite furniture companies that sells online to the trade just came out with a Swedish reproduction line.  Most Swedish repros are outrageously priced.  These pieces are more than reasonable and look like they are of the great quality that G.J. Styles is known for. 

Snap8

Here is a typical Swedish couch with upholstered seat and sides.  I would recover this in blue and white checked Chelsea Editions fabric.

Snap6

A nice sized foot stool with an upholstered top.  This would be a great way to bring in a little Swedish to a room without making a big commitment.

Snap11

This day bed is such an authentic reproduction, it's hard for me to believe it's new.  Beautiful.

Farrow and Ball, the world's best wallpaper and paint company, has released some of their papers in new, vibrant colors, as seen here.   Quite a department for the normally staid company.

cinderrose

Along with new wallpaper colors, Farrow and Ball introduced new paint colors.  Here, a trendy mauve color, cinderrose.  Mauves and lilacs are this year's aqua.

 new7

And last:  Brocade Home recently began carrying wallpaper.  Since this color, peony, is impossible to find anywhere, BH must be selling it by the truckload.  Every teenaged girl client of mine is wanting lilac, mauve, or purple these days.  It's the hottest hue going.

These are my favorite catalogues, online, that I like to shop.  Have I missed your favorite?  If so, let me know for next time's
