furniture and fragrance

a few things I'm really loving right now:

-- furniture with electrical outlets built in - like the couches, benches, and tables at Starbucks. you can never have enough electrical outlets it seems, and it definitely eliminates potential trip hazards, unsightly power cords, and is such a convenience.

-- I'm loving the Hermes and Tom Ford fragrances for men. Scent-sational.

-- for those who love comfortable luxury + travel, here's the perfect chair: DWR's Flight Recliner. in 2005, we posed a challenge to award-winning designer Jeffrey Bernett to create a recliner that didn't look like a recliner. Armed with experience designing ergonomic in-flight seating for Northwest Airlines, Bernett took us on willingly. He designed the Flight Recliner, in collaboration with Nicholas Dodziuk, to have none of the bulkiness or macho pretense of a traditional recliner. Upright, the Flight Recliner functions as a comfortable, streamlined club chair. Opened, using a patented conversion mechanism that takes only a slight, seated push to activate, it unfolds to hold the body aloft, with support from head to toe. This Recliner is upholstered in Ultrasuede, an innovative micro-fabric that’s pet and kid friendly. In addition to being easy to care for, this modern material has a soft luster, sensuous nap and available in a choice of shades. A stainless steel sleigh base provides stable footing. The frame is protected by a lifetime warranty. Made in U.S.A.

-- I love the llano 18" pillow from CB2. green and gray are two of my favourite colours, and i always try to find unique pillows - i love the mix and match look. i have a sand coloured leather sectional sofa, very modern and stream lined, but have it loaded with pillows of all shapes, sizes, and shades of green.

dimensions: llano pillow. 18" sq.

-- I'm loving the casual elegance of linen in the home - especially for table cloths, runners, placemats, napkins, etc. Don't worry about the wrinkles - it adds charm and character. I'm especially loving the linens from Kim Seybert, Libeco Ligae, Garnier-Thiebaut.
