A Quiet Corner

Nestled in the corner of the living sits my favorite piece of furniture, a Le Corbusier chaise reproduction from European Furniture Warehouse, paired nicely with an Eileen Gray steel and glass table and a drum-shade floor lamp, both from Room and Board. I finished the vignette with a garage sale find — a simple black telephone, complete with rotary dial. It was only $5 and I had to have it.

It’s a wonderful spot to relax and gaze out the window or enjoy the latest news with my handy iPad. Ever since I saw this chaise in a magazine years ago, I knew I had to have it for that “perfect corner” in the house. What makes it a fantastic piece of furniture is the timeless, yet modern quality in the simple, curving dezine that was born during the 1920s. The same holds true for the Eileen Gray end table ¬†inspired by the original from the 1920s — glass and steel, just the right amount of sparkle and timeless.
