Yep, Christmas is only one foot in the grave and we are already on to the next big thing: our floor-model sale on all new (i.e., non-vintage) furniture and lighting.
If you've had your eye on anything in the shop as of late, stay mindful; to keep things interesting, we are holding a progressive sale, so the longer the sale, the better the deals.
Here's the skinny:
DEC. 26 - JAN. 9: 15% OFF
JAN. 10 - JAN. 20: 20% OFF
JAN. 21 – JAN. 31: 30% OFF
Act quickly to ensure you get your heart's desire for a discount, or hedge your bets in the hopes that the object of your affection is still around for the final days.

Surprise your favorite design aficionado with one of these under the tree and you're guaranteed to be rewarded with a gigantic smile.
1. Tony Duquette
Not a new book, but my favorite design book of all time. Hands down, one of the most inspiring designers of all time. I LOVE THIS BOOK!
2. High Style
A glossy, glam effort from the masters of glossy and glam, L.A.'s Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield. Another one of my favorites, this is filled with colorful, over-the-top vignettes from the pair's fabulous California shop, as well as some of their memorable design projects that include the home of former Seattleite Courtney Love.
An exploration of the hot hot hot Regency style from a historical perspective, written by one of the leading experts on the period (who also has a great new blog, BTW)
7. The New Traditional
A wonderful first book from the new master of cool, serene interiors (and former lawyer!) Darryl Carter.
8. Charlotte Moss: A Flair for Living
A beautiful book from tastemaker extraordinaire Charlotte Moss.

Wanted to share pics of this fabulous chair I recently helped a client customize...we added a new coat of lacquer and a fantastic textural fabric from one of my favorite fabric houses, F. Schumacher, to transform a sweet vintage French side chair into a sassy, fresh focal point of her guest bedroom.
