Friday Furniture Fix with Green and Gold


Happy Friday. I have got a mid-century inspired furniture fix to kick off the weekend.  I have been obsessing over green and gold of late, especially when it comes to sofas.  It's no surprise that green green is my favorite colour, wherever it falls on the spectrum. But lately,  it's been super exciting to see green make a comeback, in cabinetry, painted furniture and upholstery.  So here is a little living room inspiration.
1. Lacuna by Sarina Diakos

I love a great abstract painting, and artist Sarina Diakos has a collection of the most colourful paintings, originals or prints. I selected this particularly moody one for it's organic and earthy feel, to compliment this mid-century inspired room. 

2. Circa Lighting Floor Lamp

I picked this Circa Lighting lamp because of it's clean line, and bronze finish, but also because I feel like it would give off good light. You need good reading light in the evenings, and this would pair perfectly, in the green room. 

3. Sven Sofa in Grass Green from Article

I have been stumbling onto green velvet sofa's everywhere, from pinterest to design mags, and this one from Article has been following me all over the Internet. (Thank you google trackers) It's also available in a sectional, which is equally fabulous. Velvet in general is pretty much my favorite fabric for a sofa, especially since the colour has variations it. What I think I am really a fan of here is that the sofa, has beautiful tailoring, while still coming across as plush.

4. Bernhardt Blanchard Cocktail Table

Since I worked in metal most of my life, I don't feel a room is complete without some type of iron or metal furnishing in it. This elegant coffee table by Bernhardt features a polished brass base and a white marble top. I like adding a little sophistication to the mix. Although, I did consider a table more aligned with the mid-century period, this one was the winner.

5. Arteriors Normandy Credenza

It's typical of me to fall in love with things that I can't afford. Such is the case for the Arteriors Normandy Credenza, that is possibly one of the more beautiful modern crafted pieces I have seen in a while. Veneer rift cut oak, creating a beautiful radial pattern on each of the doors. large brass round  pulls, and resting on top of fine tapered legs. This is completely in line with my love of mixing old an new world designs. 

6. Yellow gold blown glass vase

I found this little gem on Wayfair. I knew that I wanted to draw out some yellow from the painting, and I think this piece has both a colour and shape that feel a little rough and raw, that adds interest to some of the more refined pieces in the room.   

So there you have it friends!  Enjoy a magical weekend.
