Marble Fabric Obsession Tuesday, September 09 2014

It’s been months now, and this crush shows no signs of letting up.  Fabrics that look like marble point to an era of unabashed glorious elegance.  Plus, let’s make soft things that look like hard things bc in this fantastic can-do world of late, we can.  And they’ll be fabulous.  image

So stony.  So soft.  Gotta get it.

Probably should’ve waited to post this until our barstools in this fabric arrived, but I get so jazzed!  Stay tuned for an update with those.

These are actually marble, obvi, but what a gorgeous pic.  Taken at the Mosque of Uqba in Kairouan, Tunisia.  Thinking what I am?  Roadtrip!

This custom hourglass ottoman has details for days.  The double piping, single row of individual nailheads, angled block/taper legs, and of course, the marble trumps all of that.  Great piece!

I know!  Looks cozy, huh?  But, this set of divinity from design house Cerruri Baleri only looks cold.  It’s actually soft as silk….b/c it is!!  Silk chairs that look like marble.  What?  yes.  My heart swells and my eyes tear at the magnitude of fabulous.  I’m a little verclempt.  I gotta go.
