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 pretty living room’s neutral color palette offers a clean backdrop for the layers of traditional, modern and vintage elements in the space. Gray walls create contrast with the moulding around the ceiling and entryways. A Restoration Hardware sofa in a soft shade of periwinkle is a perfect complement to the home’s traditional bones. A pale pink rug completes the room’s palette of light pastels. The feminine color palette works in partnership with the vintage details in the room like the coffee table, featuring curved legs that have a feminine feel.
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.
