While wooden and metal chairs are the easiest to clean, they’re not the most comfortable. An excellent alternative to wood and metal is an upholstered Louis XVI chair. Known for its fluted legs, square back and timeless style, this French piece works in modern and traditional settings. Linen and cotton upholstery options are great for spaces with active kids; however, leather and vinyl styles are the most kid-proof and easy to clean.
A ‘Happy on Chappy’ plaque hangs above the white media dresser and refers to Chappaquiddick, a small island off of Martha’s Vineyard. Bright colored furniture and artwork add a playful touch to this whimsical retreat.
Emerald green velvet chairs pair with a live edge wood table in the dining room, creating a look that matches the grandeur of the LA skyscrapers outside the window. For more texture, a sheepskin rug is layered under the table.
If you've purchased something that you love, but it's just not working in your space, consider what you could add to help the piece fit into the space. In this living room, a vibrant lime green is repeated in a pair of chairs and throw pillows for a rich look that feels pulled together.
