Barstools We’re Loving

There’s no question that finding the right style of barstool is not easy.  It seems there are a lot of options but to be honest, they are not always great options.  Here are five barstools that we’re loving right now….

 

barstools

1.  I love this Vintage Toledo Bar Chair from Restoration Hardware.  I love the polished chromewith the dark wood.  This would be stunning in an all white kitchen.
2.  The Bauhaus Barstool takes me back a few years and reminds me of something in the Brady Bunch house.  However, it’s a little more upscale looking.
3.  This Constance Metal Barstool cafe stool is in metal which makes it a little more modern than it’s other version at Restoration Hardware in weathered wood.
4.  Love this one from West Elm. Designed by John Vogel who is known for his webbed seats.   Not only for a kitchen but I could definitely see this in front of a high desk for studying.
5.  Ballard Designs surprised me this Dayna Barstool his great bamboo stool.  It also comes in gray.

Home Depot Lighting

While I definitely like Home Depot for my basic house needs I don’t consider them a great resource for products with good design–that is until now!  While searching online for some lighting, I found their ZUO line with has great design with a small price tag.


1. ZUO Amethyst
//2. ZUO Bronze //3.ZUO Sapphire//4.ZUO Cassius//5.Alpha Floor Lamp//6.ZUO Bradyon//7.ZUO Cascade

1.  Perfect light fixture for an entryway!  The bronze finish keeps it from looking too modern so that would blend in with traditional decor as well.

2.  I’ve been trying to figure out where I could incorporate this pendant light into my home–LOVE it!  I think it would be great in a kids bathroom and I could even see two of these over a rustic wood dining room table.

3.  This pendant has been one of my favorites for a long time.  It comes in two sizes and a nickel finish.  Would love to see the nickel finish in my office area and I think Tessa should put the bronze finish in her entryway. Now we just have to convince our husbands to let us change our light fixtures AGAIN.

4.  This one is a steal at 50.00!  Could look great in a girl’s nursery or bathroom or even over a huge soaking bathtub!

5.  While this is not a pendant light, I couldn’t help but include such a nice looking floor lamp.

6.  This is by far my favorite find at Home Depot.  Large enough in scale to be placed over a dining room table in a more formal setting or  I would love to see it over a rustic wood table.

7.  Everyone needs a little bling in their house!

I will definitely consider Home Depot one of my go-to stores from now on.  Happy Shopping!

Library Lights

Yesterday I showed you rooms of all different types featuring library lights. These trendy lights are popping up all over the place and I was on a search for some affordable options to recreate the look…
Library Lights

 

… unfortunately, I discovered that library lights tend to be on the more expensive side. 1, 2 and 3 are all by one of our favorite lighting sources, Circa Lighting which has amazing stuff, but it is also on the higher end so you’re looking at over $200 a piece on those ones. (Cue sad face…) Numbers 4 and 7 are both Sandy Chapman for Visual Comfort and are great alternatives to the Circa Lighting ones–except at almost half the price! One of these would look great over a sink like in yesterday’s inspiration shot! 5 is our cheapest option at under $100 and would be a nice choice for next to a bed or a desk. I love the classic shaded look of #6 as well–the brass and the black are so sophisticated and these would look great hanging behind a family room couch.
