Finding unexpected pieces to accent your island or bar can give you a designer look without the pricetag, says designer Diane Foreman of Neil Kelly Company. The whimsical curved table leg supporting this island was just $80 online, but Foreman says it’s often mistaken for a custom piece.
The metal frame and legs on this coffee table in a room by Atlanta's Balance Design pairs well with the curved light fixture. Look for coffee tables with interesting-shaped legs and materials that fit well with items you already have in the room.
The kitchen, living room and dining room all open up to each other for a relaxed gathering space. A retro green chair features curved metal legs and is paired with a blue Oriental rug and Lucite coffee table. The mix of styles and eras creates a true eclectic look.
This stunning vintage white sofa is the one thing I might have tried to run out the door with. The woven upholstery fabric immediately adds an air of sophistication to a wall color that might otherwise come across as juvenile. The sleek curve of the arm that transitions into a fully upholstered leg, housing a floating bench cushion is a work of art with a clear mid-century reference. The only way to address a piece this special is to accent it with sleek black floor lamps, a classic black and white marble coffee table, and graphic drapery fabric by the talented Kelly Wearstler. I really enjoy seeing a successful relationship between the primary colors in the artwork and the tertiary wall color. Angela definitely took risks, but her artistic eye served her well.
