Marketplace: In the Kitchen with Kate Spade

In the fall, I brought you news from High Point Market of Kate Spade’s new line of furniture and home accessories. While I don’t particularly love the furniture as much as a lot of other people do, there are a select few items that I do really like (e.g., pom pom throw, Afton coffee table, many rugs), but, overall, it’s too much “bow” for me to commit to.

Its kitchen collection, however, is right up my black and white alley. In keeping with true Kate Spade style, it’s peppy and pretty and polka dotted! Oh, and of course there are plenty of bows thrown into the mix, too. Obviously. This is Kate Spade after all!

Design: Polka Dots + Furniture

I bought a chaise lounge for my living room. I’ve always wanted a chaise lounge. Now I’m looking for upholstery options. When I saw Jordan’s sofa makeover, I thought that Marimekko’s Pirput Parput fabric might be just perfect for it.


Oh Happy Day!

Like any good blogger, I love to scour the internet for inspiration. Here’s a round-up of my findings.

There’s also the option of going full out fancy with Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches fabric. Isn’t this chaise great?

I’m excited to see what I can find and what my future reupholstered chaise will look like.
