Winging It

Before we get to the post, did you check out the pop-up shop? I launched it Friday afternoon!  Look at the tab under the logo, you will find SHOP on the right side, and on that page you will find a delightful collection of true blue and white porcelain pieces that have been uncovered at estate sales all over Asia in the past 20 years. I personally picked out these pieces in Asia (specifically the Philippines) this summer from a source that is truly remarkable and inspiring. I only have a little bit left, but it is a LOT of quality that will last forever. xxoo Hurry while it lasts!

Now to wingback chairs…


Wingback chairs. I can’t stop thinking about them. I feel they would be a perfect addition to my Restoration Hardware sofa (that I practically stole from a warehouse sale here in Dallas- well in some very small and deserted town outside of Dallas). I think wingback chairs bring a great significance to a room. They were first created as fireside chairs to hold the heat in from the sides and backs in order to keep the drafts out. On the other hand, they were also called “the grandfather chair” because that’s where as a child you sit on his knee for a story.

With all their history, they aren’t your typical side chair that blends in the corner. They are commanding, interesting, and beautifully designed. So go ahead, spread your wings.
