In a tiny space, apartment, or multi-purpose room, each piece of furniture needs to serve double—sometimes triple—duty. Enter modular furniture: pieces that turn, say, from a bed into a desk, or transform entirely into new sizes and shapes. The offerings from Transformer Table take multi-functional furniture up a notch: Coupling quality materials (like solid woods) […]
A couple of years ago we all became obsessed with the guest rooms at the Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen, which feature rattan bed frames by London-based design studio Lind + Almond. So we took note when we spotted a new, more streamlined version of the Sanders bed used in the Hotel Sanders—the Walford—on the Lind […]
I often dream of having a dedicated studio: a loft with nothing but space, a simple table, a weaving loom, maybe even a potter’s wheel. Then reality sets in as I recall hopeless city real estate, and all the expensive smocks I would require. If you’re fortunate enough to have a proper studio to work […]
After years of balancing a laptop on the sofa arm or on stacked pillows, it recently occurred to me that there is a solution to this problem, and it comes in the form of a functional and good-looking piece of furniture: the C-table. Designed to levitate over the sofa at the perfect height, the C-table […]
In a historic mid-19th century Victorian house in Georgetown (formerly owned by Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee), architect Lauren Wegel remodeled the interior with distinctly elegant and European-influenced style. Thanks to the new owners, a couple who moved to Washington DC from Istanbul, and before that, Berlin, the dining room plan was to open up […]
In the 1770s, when Thomas Chippendale was putting the finishing touch on the furnishings at Harewood House, the Robert Adam-designed estate in Yorkshire represented the height of Georgian chic. The property is again in the design vanguard: now run as a museum and educational charitable trust, its gilded rooms and Capability Brown gardens are currently […]
“‘Showroom’ is not a word I enjoy,” explains the British designer Fred Rigby. “I’d say we’ve created more of an apartment, a home from home.” Fred is describing his new studio space on Gransden Avenue, a short stroll from London Fields in East London. The building—a detached, industrial unit built in 1911—is something of a […]
When Annie first featured a series of renovated buildings on Spruce Head, Maine by sculptor-turned-builder Anthony Esteves, the small Cape quickly become a Remodelista favorite. Originally built in 1754, the original hand-hewed frame, flooring, sheathing, doors, front windows, and chimney bricks were all maintained by Esteves. “The aesthetics are informed by the range of styles […]
Of all the scrap materials in the world, the Douglas Fir leftovers from Danish flooring company Dinesen—see World’s Most Beautiful Wood Floors—likely rank among the choicest. Julius Værnes Iversen of the design studio Tableau would certain agree. The creative director was working with the Copenhagen Contemporary on floral installations when he offered his team’s services […]
At Osip, the restaurant at No. 1 Bruton in rural Bruton in Somerset, is located in an old ironmonger’s shop but was redesigned with cream white walls, zellige, glass pendant lights, and antique chairs. We like the look so much we decide to track down the key ingredients that make up the look. For much […]
Inspired by the seating at the Standard Biergarten in NYC, we’ve rounded up a collection of brew pub-style seating with an industrial edge, backrests included (to prevent tipplers from toppling over). Shopping for bar or counter seating? See 133 Counter Stools in our shopping section. N.B.: This post was originally published on September 8, 2010. […]
Recently in my inbox: Keeps, a Seattle-based brand creating furniture that’s the opposite of throwaway. The company is helmed by co-founder and lead designer Andrew Cheng, who, after graduating from California College of the Arts in 2014, was dismayed to find that his own big-box furnishings barely held together as he moved from apartment to […]
One way to balance all the right angles of a bedroom is with a round rug or bedside table. For the latter, there are plenty of appealing round side tables and stools but few with drawers or shelves for storage. Here are our favorite round bedside tables with storage. For more bedroom furniture see our […]
Louisa Grey creates interiors that promote wellness. Her design firm, House of Grey, practices what she calls “circular salutogenic design,” which translates as living quarters that are healthful to humans and gentle on our planet. And lovely to be in, too. A recently completed residence in London’s Gasholders building in King’s Cross exemplifies the House […]
In this longhouse-style passive energy property designed by architects Maria Ibañez de Sendadiano and Todd Rouhe, the living room is a composed and gentle space in the center of the house. The minimalist, Scandinavian-influenced design is made up of Danish companies such as Vipp, Skagerak, and Hay. Here is our list of sources to re-create […]
The unsung workhorse of the entryway: the humble coat rack for corralling all of life’s seasonal accessories. Here’s a roundup of good options. N.B.: This post was originally published on December 15, 2010. We have updated it with new and additional product selections and current pricing.
Kathleen Whitaker bought two vintage Donghia pillow slipper chairs from Chairish and had them reupholstered in a poplin cotton. The table is from LA antique store The Window. Like in her Echo Park home, light is ample in this cottage thanks to the many windows, including some that are floor-to-ceiling. Photograph by Logan White.
When we bought a crib in anticipation for our daughter’s arrival, I didn’t realize how fleeting the period of crib sleeping would be. Fast forward a couple years and that crib I hand finished in beeswax is nearly obsolete: time for the toddler bed. Also called a “junior bed,” a toddler bed is low profile […]
The newly updated Zak + Fox showroom on Park Avenue South looks like a regal glimpse into a former century. On view are owner Zak Profera’s luxe textiles and an ensemble of 18th-century style furnishings and lights from esteemed London firm Jamb, purveyors of antiques and top drawer reproductions. To celebrate his company’s 10th year, […]
The same great-looking legs cropped up recently in two different Paris projects on Remodelista: a starter apartment and Merci’s new showcase residence. Intriguingly, these legs are made of powder-coated steel and designed to turn just about any thin, flat surface into a readymade table. We had to find out more. The Inspiration The Paris company […]
Zak Profera of NYC artisanal textile house Zak + Fox is a designer who finds inspiration by traveling far and wide in place and time. And, it turns out, by going deep: he just introduced Sea Change, a 19-piece, nautically themed collection that was four years in the making. Zak describes his new fabric and […]
A flea market in France you can shop on Instagram? Julie recently spotted Nomibis, run by Fabienne Nominé and companion Pascal Bisson, who first opened a shop in the city of Reims, France (once the site of the coronations of the French kings), but ten years later discovered that they could sell things more artfully and more quickly on Instagram. Now they use their own Reims home to style their found "antiques and eccentricities."
In the right (or wrong) room, a floor mirror is transformative. Adding dimension to narrow hallways and rendering awkward spaces as inviting and seemingly functional, it’s the renter’s secret weapon. Here are 10 leaning mirrors at full length heights, each with a timeless design to carry from one house to another: For other mirror styles […]
