New Obsession!

Sunday, July 15, 2012 | Category: Furniture

I have been completely and utterly obsessed with anything to do with tassels or ropes lately…and we aren’t talking about the traditional over the top drapery trimmings from back in the ma’am!  We are talking about the tassel and rope motifs that are popping up anywhere and everywhere- from furniture to lighting.  They bring an unexpected twist to any space and provide texture and opulence to an otherwise basic piece of furniture.

We just purchased these chairs from Again and Again for a client…we are going to paint them black and upholster them in a white vinyl (and put a rounded monogram on the backs in a deep teal).  SO excited for the finished result.

Whether it’s through metal or wood (or the real deal), these pieces do a great job mimicking my beloved tassels and ropes-

Beth Dotolo and Carolina Gentry of Pulp Design Studios used a similar table in their vignette for Dwell with Dignity’s Thrift Studio- how gorgeous does the tassel table look against the dramatic black walls and funky vintage chairs? Love!

And if you missed it, even Kelly Wearstler is on board… her recent sale on One Kings Lane featured a very similar chair to the one I’m re-doing above. They seem to be everywhere these days! Now there is just one more place that they need to be….my home of course! 😉

I love those chairs you found. They are exceptional! Your images of rope and tassels are great, too. I love that look.
