Do You Want The "Low Down"?

Well do you ?  I am talking about the resurgence of "low down" lounge chairs!  They were quite popular in the 70's and are everywhere in European design. 
 However, they are just starting to  make their way back into our design lives.  
I always loved a fireplace chair.  Like this  antique beauty below that was diminutive and sat low to the ground and hearth.  

The low fireside chairs I was used too, like this on 1st Dibs!

These new low lounge chairs below are sharp though...

Robin Baron Design

I had the pleasure of seeing Robin Baron and her work at the "Art Of The Table" with sponsors - Traditional Home, Bilotta Kitchens and Mottahedeh.  I loved her orchid inspired settings and design, they were absolutely lovely.  It lead to me following her on Instagram and now to sharing her design with you! 
Robin Baron thrives on creating homes that are eclectic and unique. Her motto is "Confidence Begins At Home", and she prides herself on her ability to capture her client's personalties in their homes.
Her career took off when she transformed her fashion business into a career in interiors . Her team takes projects from the pre-construction phase through  out the  decoration details and finishing touches.   Robin also has significant television experience with her presence on HGTV, Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York, NBC's Open House and many more.

Tis' The Season For Summer Furniture!

No I haven't lost my mind!  It really is the best time to buy outdoor Summer furniture right now.  Most stores have great sales right now and left over inventory.  One of my favorite stores that I just bought all of my outdoor furniture for the new house is 'The Garden Cottage".   They carry many lines of fabulous outdoor furniture but one brand that is their own is CO9.  I love it!  I bought all of my outdoor pieces from that company except for the Kingsley Bate Paris dining chairs.  Right now there is a great sale going on, so if you are in need of new or additional Summer Furniture pieces consider buying now.  Here are some of the pieces I chose and others that I may add down the road!

CO9 72 - 118 extension table done!

Soho sofa, two of those!

Four of these Soho chairs do the trick.

I love this don't you!

Smitten with this concrete grouping, maybe next time!

Modern concrete chair!

Love this chair, that may be future fireside chairs.

My dear friend has these and they are actually very comfortable!

Great planters,,,

Or maybe these for fireside!

This concrete stool has wheels so no lugging around.

My Kingley Bate dining chairs that work well with
 all of the CO 9 pieces!
