...crushing on CHAIRISH....!

I can't remember how I discovered the designer furniture focused website Chairish. It may have been on a lucky click of the mouse...I do remember that it grew like rapid fire because it filled a niche for us designers and design-lovin' consumers that hadn't been done...I mean, I guess Chairish says it in a nutshell on their blog:

Chairish makes it fun and easy for design lovers to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. Our shop exclusively features curator-approved treasures in a full-service and trustworthy environment.

What I love most about Chairish is that I can mix in their featured pieces with any room design I am working on....I frequently liken a room's design to that of dressing one's self. The way you dress typically reflects your personal style and in turn your home.

I like to mix up my wardrobe with high/mid/low pieces. Some sale items, some bargains, some coveted high-designer-they-will-last-longer-than-anything-else-in-your-closet pieces, some vintage and some new/modern. And that is how I LOVE to specify and shop from Chairish. They have incredible deals on beautiful vintage items and designer specified pieces (often new design) on the daily and at a variety of prices. And the best part?! They handle the shipping.

I was recently sourcing for a client and came across these adorable Mid-Century Lawerence Peabody chairs on Chairish and my brain instantly wanted to develop a whole room around them....!
