ABC Carpet & Home, Part II

More Eye Candy from ABC Carpet and Home

Sit back, relax and enjoy…

Ahhhhhh, tufting! One of my favorite design elements. And I love seeing it presented here  in muslin. My imagination is running wild!

Here is a perfect example of how fun and unexpected it is to pair modern with traditional. It really does work putting this chair with the contemporary metal and mirror table.

Cisco Brothers Chair

Ok, there are so many things I love about this Cisco Brothers chair!  Who would not want to curl up in this men’s suiting inspired pin striped upholstery? So soft and inviting. And the white contrasting welt & nickel nail heads! Again, mixing traditional and contemporary elements adds such interest.

And another important thing about Cisco Bros, they make 100% sustainable furniture.  I recently placed two Cisco Bros chairs in a client’s home and a few days later  she sent an email raving about not only how perfect they looked, but that they are so amazingly comfortable. (Thanks Sheila!)

Note the legs and stretchers on this Dwell Studio chest. It could live anywhere:  foyer, hall, bedroom….(excuse the poor picture quality)

The beautiful inlay of this chest stopped me in my tracks. Again, an argument could be made to place this treasure in any space. What about a small dining room? A guest room? A living room side table? A nursery?

I cannot get this cocktail table out of my head. I never did figure out the manufacturer (help anyone?), but I  L*O*V*E  it! Poor quality photo once again, but this thing is really stunning.

What about bedding, you say?  Feast your eyes…..

From Dwell Studio, the mix of pattern and color is really wonderful especially on this great upholstered bed.

This close up is a much better image of the vibrant colors and textures.

Pillow Love.  I want these bird pillows scattered around my sun room!  But, oh how they pull this ensemble together.

My daughters would like me to magically transport this bed to each of their rooms.


And now for some FUNKY – and there was lots of that to be found….

How about this whimsical vanity?

Are ya ‘stumped’?  Yup, it’s a chair!

This bed!  Too bad it is dressed in these sloppy looking linens in an unflattering color. Imagine crisp white, or  steel blue….

Fun interpretation of the Ghost Chair.

Can you make this out?  A desk! fashioned out of a single mold – seat and all.  And below is the tag…

If you hurry, perhaps it is still there. Now if this is not a gift for the person who has everything….


Lest you think I overlooked the ‘carpet’ part of ABC Carpet and Home.


Gorgeous, sculptural rug. Not for the klutzy with that hi-lo stuff going on.

Can you tell how this rug undulates?

The famous ABC basement, right this way!  And and then you are greeted by this crazy space full of more rugs than one can imagine!

So many rugs, too few rooms.

And there you have it. I was able to capture only a fraction of what ABC has to offer and I cannot wait for an excuse to visit them again.
