Today I received a letter from a man who had seen a room of mine (pictured above) and was inquiring about the sofa. It caught his eye immediately, he said, for the fabric reminded him of a sofa his family owned in his childhood home. This man had not need seen the photo in a magazine or on my website, but in a page of the Flor catalogue. It occurred to me that I too am often struck by certain pieces that are a part of catalogue sets….and not necessarily the piece that is for sale! The Flor catalogue in particular does a fantastic job at creating unique and memorable sets. These are some of my favorites that include certain standout pieces that sell themselves as much as they sell the rug!
I just love this photo from their catalogue. It was actually just featured in CS Interiors! Probably love it so much because I have in fact used these lucite chairs in a home of a client recently.
What a unique desk! How beautiful is the bluish tone of the glass against the chocolate wall? And the chairs really pull the two tones together nicely. I saw this piece at the Merchandise Mart Antiques Fair in the Spring. Some lucky person now owns it….
Love this lamp! And loving the richness created by the dark stain of the wood combined with dark blue walls, paneling and door.
Such a great table and chairs…cool chandelier we’re getting a glimpse of too!
Mirrored bar table as coffee table on wheels? Gotta love that! And how about the shape and simplicity of these sofas? Fantastic! Plus I’d love to see more than a glimpse of the dark brown/black sofa we’re seeing in the background!
Take a look at this drum-shaped coffee table as well as the end table in the corner. And how could you miss the awesome chair?
I want more than just a glimpse of the fun and funky bright yellow accent wall in this dining room!
I love everything that is going on in this room…and the room peeking out behind it!
I love the cool “urban chic” effect of the exposed brick wall, sleek furniture and of course the bicycle hanging on the wall!
I can’t help but love these plush green velvet chairs and the pop of blue velvet pillows. Wonder what the fun lucite table we’re getting a glimpse of is?
Bottom line: if you see something you LOVE in a catalogue, whether or not it’s the product being sold, look at the resources in the back to find out what it is! Or, just contact the referring company. What do you have to lose? We have found and ordered the fabric for the inquiring man that inspired this post- and he is now so glad that HE did!
