Who says sectionals have to be brown leather and clunky?  I’m currently working on a space where a sectional is the answer to all our problems.  I’m looking for a relatively clean-lined one that still has character.  Kind of dying over the curved Windsor Smith beauty below!

Jonathan Adler makes two very good looking sectionals, the “Lampert” above and “Danner” below.

The two sectionals above are from Lee Industries.

Clarke Sectional from Room & Board

B & B Italia

“Cielo” Sectional from CB2

We’re TOTALLY counting this “Faceted Curved Sofa” from Windsor Smith as a sectional because it’s awesome.

“Jordan” sectional from Jayson Home & Garden

“Gramercy” Sectional from Bernhardt Interiors

What do I love more than an upholstered bed?  An upholstered headboard/iron canopy combo!  This room is pure perfection in my eyes.  I love the large pattern on the rug and headboard, and the mainly solid fabrics everywhere else.  This bedroom is in Tara Shaw’s house.

Clean simple with a pop of color – just how I like my bedrooms! Room by Kara Mann.

This looks like a Phoebe Howard bedroom to me.  Love the textured headboard with the iron canopy.

The Tara Shaw bed!  I think it’s perfect.

This Bed by Restoration Hardware has great lines.  I would slipcover the headboard & foot-board. It’s on sale now too for a great price!

For a cleaner lines, go with this “Marco” bed from Oly Studio.

Possibly my favorite, the “Diego” Bed also from Oly.

Not necessarily wrought iron, but I had to include this mirrored number also from Oly.  Gorgeous!

Love this one from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child

You can get up to a Queen size from PB Teen!

Milo Ray Baughman, Jr., a World War II veteran turned interior designer turned furniture designer, is one of the most influential furniture designers of the latter part of the 20th Century.  Long before it was commonplace for interior designers to receive lucrative licensing deals with large furniture companies, Mr. Baughman created a collection for Drexel Heritage.  It was however, his fifty year collaboration with Thayer Coggin Inc. that produced some of his most iconic designs.

1st Dibs is obviously a great resource for his pieces that have become hot commodities with Interior Designers.  Scour your local antique and vintage shops as well for his pieces or pieces influenced by his work.

Here is a sampling of my favorite pieces…

Simply gorgeous.

A more affordable pair.

Now that’s a “recliner” I could get behind!

Simple but beautiful.

Looks like a good time.

I leave you with a pair of hot pink chairs for your consideration.  I need pink in my house and it hasn’t happened yet.  Well my office IS peachy-pink so that’s pretty close.   Have a great weekend!
