Must-Know Furniture: Bergères and Fauteuils

Must-Know Furniture: Bergères and Fauteuils | Designing Interiors | Scoop.it
Author Joan DeJean tells a story about Louis XV’s daughter, Victoire, in the book The Age of Comfort. Addressing the fear that she may run off to become a nun like her younger sister, Victoire pointed to the bergère upon which she was outstretched and exclaimed: “Don’t worry; I could never be like Louise, because I am far too attached to the comforts of life. This armchair will be the ruin of me!”

Sure, this time of year is all about joyful tidings and merry-making, but if you are a color nerd like me you also look forward to it for the various “Color of the Year” announcements put out by paint coating and color management companies.

Must-Know Furniture: Face Off With the Iconic Tête-à-Tête

Must-Know Furniture: Face Off With the Iconic Tête-à-Tête | Designing Interiors | Scoop.it
With the holiday party season in full swing, I’m reminded why the tête-à-tête is the perfect party seating. You’ve probably sat next to a friend on a crowded sofa and struggled to talk without wrenching your neck to one side, or you’ve curled up at the sofa end to attempt to make eye contact. Mix in some hors d’oeuvres and you’ve got a clumsy mess on your hands. But with a tête-à-tête, there’s no need to sacrifice comfort for conversation.

Recessive Color: 8 Eye-Catching Niches, Nooks and Crannies | Designing Interiors | Scoop.it
One of my favorite ways to bring a bolt of vibrant color into a room is to paint the interior of a niche or nook. Niches are small, open areas typically used for storage or display, making them the perfect spot for dramatic color. Not only do you create a focal point — allowing the items on view to take center stage — but the small dash of color can also help break up an otherwise neutral space. I’ve pulled together eight examples of boldly colored niches, nooks and crannies, as well as color...

Open vs. Closed Kitchens — Which Style Works Best for You? | Designing Interiors | Scoop.it
