Dreamy Daybeds

Emily Henderson-Design Crush
Emily Henderson

Around the age of 10 I wanted anything in my bedroom other than the twin canopy that had been handed down to me. I had my sophisticated eye set on a white metal framed daybed, you know the kind with the gold finial balls on each post? In other words, the cheap one. My grandparents had offered to buy me a daybed, just not That One. Off to the furniture store we went, eventually settling on a real beauty – cherry wood, scrolled head- and footboards, spindled back. After I moved off to college the day bed was retired to my Grandma’s spare bedroom, where it still sits in wait for me to one day (hopefully) hand down to my own daughter. All of this is the longwinded way of saying how thrilled I am that daybeds are having a moment again!

Get Outside Already

Outdoor Furniture Roundup-1-Design Crush
Free-Standing Hammock

Have you been spending lots of time outside or are you holed up inside avoiding the heat? I’ve been doing a little bit of both, as well as avoiding some rainstorms by hanging out on my porch. (One of my favorite times to be out!) The key to enjoying the outdoors for me is making my yard just as livable as my house, which means furniture that carries over the same style and sensibilities. Peek at my backyard setup that I shared last year, then take a look at these stellar outdoor furniture pieces.

Let’s Talk Shelves

Kelly Beall-1-Design Crush

 

I despise the term shelfie, but I do love a well-styled set of shelves. I have three in my home that serve as both organizational epicenters and focal points. The built-in in my dining room (above) corrals favorite serving pieces and barware, along with a few other things like candleholders and glove molds. (Trays, party decor, and other odds and ends live in the cupboard underneath.) The freestanding set on wheels that resides in the kitchen holds most of my cookbooks, a collection of vases, and stacks of white dinnerware and glasses that I pull out for entertaining. And lastly, the shelves in my living room show off most of my books. (I want to get away from the organization by color, but haven’t been able to let go just yet!)

What’s your stance on shelves? Do you like them stacked full or sparse?

Peg Woodworking-1-Design Crush

 

There’s a sweet woven bench in my entryway, but not near as sweet as these pieces by Peg Woodworking. Each piece is handmade in Brooklyn by Kate Casey using local and non-toxic lumber, natural oil sealants, and all natural cotton cord. A wooden or metal frame is anchors handwoven designs of geometric patterns that form the seat.

Chris Earl

Chris Earl-1-Design Crush

 

Chris Earl‘s upbringing in Papua New Guinea instilled in him a respect for creating objects to fulfill a purpose, create a story, and build community. He puts it all into play in his line of furniture, tabletop, and ceramics where that trifecta is the guiding light. Functional, graceful, and timeless.
