At the base of the bed, I thought that placing an upholstered bench would help break the weight of the bed frame. It’s always a good place to put on shoes or throw a sweater at the end of a long day. I opted for the Library bench by Chicago-based designer Maxine Snider. Classically inspired, the bench also has curves that help soften the angularity of the bed. I will specify brass casters and brass nail head trim to match the frame of the bedside tables selected yesterday and the sabots on the chairs below.
For the cozy sitting area overlooking their garden, I would like to place 2 Hans Wegner inspired, perfectly scaled Doria club chairs by NY-based Studio Van den Akker that would rock the space … not too angular, not too curvy and very 1950s. In front of them, the octagonal, tufted and original Kenton ottoman from Steven Gambrel would finish off the space with a bang!!!! A perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee. LOVE the bedroom so far.
Tune in tomorrow for the selections of the ever so important bedroom lighting!!!
