Flame Stitch

Loving the flame stitch right now. It has been enjoying great popularity, but was actually first introduced in the early 13th century. The origins are fairly obscure. It seems that it developed out of a combination of a brick stitch and zig-zag stitch known as hungarian stitch. Used in modern color ways from walls and floors to pillows and textiles the flames stitch is back in a big way!

The Chesterfield Sofa

The chesterfield is one of those classic pieces that won't ever go out of style! It is said that the sofa was named after an Earl of Chesterfield. The rolled arms as high as it's back and it's gorgeous tufting are a few of its distinctive characteristics. I've also heard that they are best shown without pillows, but maybe us pillow-aholics can sneak a few on there! These look amazing in velvet or perhaps a black leather! This one's for you J!












Here are some resources for buying your very own!

Seeing it in black and white

It's no secret that I love the classic combination of black and white. The high contrast is always appealing in everything from interiors, fashion, photography, and graphic design. Here are some great pictures to inspire a black and white transformation in your space!
