Restoration Hardware Grand Leather Bean Bag
A classic piece of dorm furniture gets a chic and oddly sensual update in Restoration Hardware’s Grand Leather Bean Bag.
It’s as if Don Draper strode confidently into your rec room and gave it a total makeover.
Offered in seven sumptuous leather options, the comfy cloud of the fun comes at a price $795, to be exact, and up to $875 for select upholsteries.
Despite the lofty cost, a pair of these is a smart solution to a call for cozy seating in a small space. Seamed with a circular center for perfect comfort, the topstitched bean bag has a child-safe locking zipper on its velvet base and runs 50 inches in diameter.
Offered via Restoration Hardware’s website and catalog only; not available in stores.
Chill Sack Bean Bag Chair
British Cane Mirror From Restoration Hardware
Finding a mirror can be tricky at times as for me when I am looking I cannot seem to find one. I came across this British Cane Mirror from Restoration Hardware and wanted to share it with my readers. First off, this traditional piece is very flexible providing many options as to where you may hang it in your house.
It could be a bathroom mirror as opposed to the “piece of glass” variety, it could hang in an entry way, or even as an accent piece on another wall of your home. The brown color is almost universal making it easy to match with other pieces. I like a touch of “caning” as it adds a little charm to the mirror making it softer.
Price: $349-$399 – three sizes available.
Kenroy Home Wall Mirror
Pier Crystal Lamps
Some home decorators enjoy the theme of crystal throughout the house. An often overlooked accessory is the crystal lamp when using this motif. Pier crystal lamps from Restoration Hardware are an elegant example of this type of accent lighting. I like the fact that they are not too ornate and that their shape is very simple.
Many versions on the market are too decorative and distort the balance of a living room for example, where too much attention is drawn to a single accessory.
The Marston Sleigh Bed from Restoration Hardware is a great looking piece of furniture that is made right in the USA. The bed is made from solid North American black cherry and cheery veneers. I really enjoy this bed and will tell you that it works in almost any setting whether your house is more traditional or modern.
Another option, not shown in the picture, is to not get the foot board and just have the frame wrap around the foot of the bed. This option is a little less inexpensive and looks great. I know some people don’t want the high foot board since it may block the view to the television.
A great feature of Restoration Hardware’s Marston line is that they use the old artisan furniture technique of mortise and tenon joinery. This is where adjoining boards have grooves in them so that the board which meets it will fit into the grooves and create a secure, solid frame.
Mortise and tenon joinery are used in place of nails to secure the frame. Most furniture today uses nails or glue to affix boards to one another. The mortise and tenon joinery is a technique that was developed centuries ago when these options were not available or when the use of nails was frowned upon as it took away from the craftsmanship of the furniture piece.
I can tell you from personal experience, that the Marston sleigh bed is a quality piece of furniture, that is heavy, constructed well and made of hardwoods.
