Black Chippendale Chair

As I was browsing through Lonny Magazine,I just fell in love with Ms Marlien Rentmeester Pacific Palisades home.In her office,a Black Chippendale Chair caught my eye.These chairs are everywhere nowadays,though they don't come cheap.

W-S's Brighton Bamboo Armchair retails for $750.

Tommy Bahama's version of this chair costs $639.

This chair is similar to the one in Lonny magazine.It costs $325.

Another very charming option for the chair is Ballard designs's Macau Armchair which costs $249.

So leave a comment about which one do you love or if you found any cheaper version of it.

Or you can pick this up from Amazon for $1790.

Coral Branch...

Corals are not only exquisite, exotic and glamorous, they are the nutrients of Sea and very substantial to our Marine life.I do not recommend a real (dead) coral in home decor as its just not environmentally friendly.


But you can bring a bit of nature into your home with these Porcelain and resin Coral beauties!!Williams-Sonoma has a beautiful range of porcelain coral branches which costs $128 each.

Or you can buy a set of three from for $299.

But if you are in mood of DIY, You can just buy a cake stand or glass block from local goodwill and stick this coral ($16.95) on top to make your own coral branch.


Please send any feedback you have to are always welcome.
