The gorgeous and classic bubble chair aside (dreamy!), here are some suggested New Year's resolutions for 2015! (It's never to early to start thinking about them right?) Merry Merry, Everyone!
The Monday Design Studio team is always amazed at the creativity (and design talent) of "regular folks." Here is an especially timely post from Houzz, with images of "outside-the-box" Christmas tree ideas. We hope you enjoy - and are inspired - by these images, too. Merry Christmas!
Good golly - this time of year, who couldn't use a good recliner? Monday Design Studio likes this one - the chic, carbon-colored vegan leather, clean lines and intricate stitch detailing make it a star. Perfect as a living room chair, den chair, club chair, or accent chair, versatility is the name of the game. For more info on this motion chair, or help in selecting any furniture for your home, please contact the guys at Monday Design Studio. Ho ho ho - BTW, this would make a most excellent Christmas gift!
Tuesday night was the Monday Design Studio Holiday Staff Party, held at Michelson & Morley Restaurant. The food was great and all the designers agreed - 2015 will be THE year of Monday Design Studio (and more grilled lamb sliders from M&M!)
Every year, Interior Design magazine does a Fall Market Tabloid issue, showcasing the newest and most innovative products being introduced to interior designers and architects. Here is a gorgeous slideshow of more than sixty fabrics and wallcoverings introduced this year: http://www.interiordesign.net/articles/detail/36546-61-new-fabrics-and-wallcoverings/?utm_source=bitly. Enjoy! (image featured is Flame by Liora Manné, of Liora Manné).
Clients ask Monday Design Studio for "Holiday Decorating Tips" every year at this time. Here is one of our favorites: Don't forget your floor! We all decorate table tops and mantles and trees - why not add some "holiday-ness" to your floors, too? These 100% wool area rugs come in six sizes, are not too expensive and would add fun and color to your space for the season - can you imagine that runner in your hallway? Let our team help you "Make it Merry" this year. For more info on these rugs, please contact our studio. Ho ho ho!
Fashion follows interior design trends - or is it the other way around? Regardless, home interior products often mirror details being highlighted on designer runways. Current case in point? Cut-outs and "transparency" in home accessories and lighting. Just as fashion designers add sheer panels and cut-outs to give a lightness to clothing, Monday Design Studio is noticing a similar trend in current home furnishing offerings - like this amazing "scribble" pendant lamp and this open-frame side table. The team at MDS loves these; let us use them (or similar) products on YOUR project. For info on the lamp or table shown, contact Monday Design Group. THX!
Another brilliant bit of advice from legendary interior designer Billy Baldwin. Monday Design Studio agrees...
Wallpaper is a Monday Design Studio staple and this treatment - using it to face the risers on a stair - is BRILLIANT. Thanks, Lynne Parker, for such a great idea, and thanks, Houzz, for the post.
