We love this Louis XV-style bombe commode because of its luxurious Japanned, lacquered wood and intricate, gilded hand-drawn scenes. This Louis XV-style commode is a steal, combining architectural style with gilt bronze top handles, exhibiting acanthus leaves and shell molds. We see this piece in an elegant master bedroom or a classic-style living room paired with other vintage furnishings, particularly those with similarly regal qualities.
This unique piece features noble materials including sophisticated black leather, wrought iron, and brass accents. This piece is a steal, a vintage early 20th-century armchair that embodies the era with gorgeous leg lines and a surprisingly comfortable seat. We see this piece in a residential, hospitality, or workplace environment: it stands out in a classic, contemporary, or futurist, almost dystopian, aesthetic.
This chair’s elegant shape, striking green plush velvet, and modern mahogany legs instantly caught our eye. This is a splurge, and is worth the investment as it is the embodiment of modern high-end furniture, strikingly simple and elegant. We see this piece in a modern interior—residential or hospitality—particularly in a sophisticated dining room or conference room.
The round shape of this mirror has a special, meditative appeal, which is enhanced with silver etchings and a contrasting gold frame. This is a steal, especially considering the piece’s high-quality, noble materials that personify luxury. We see this piece in an artistically designed powder room, or one that is designed to offer hints of tranquility.
The lux material combined with the intricate scrollwork on the oak frame dance with the sensual shape of this canapé. This 18th-century upholstered French piece is a splurge, but well worth the investment. The linen is of great quality and the artisanship is exquisite and authentic. We see this piece in a formal living room as well as a large family room. It can be placed in a modern furnishing layout or one that is more traditional.
This lamp’s exclusive base shape is unique and alluring. The base juxtaposes materials such as porcelain and wood, perfectly contrasting the oatmeal linen shade. This is a splurge, and one we’d readily make, thanks to its hand-thrown, teal-glazed porcelain, a beveled wood base, and antique hardware. We see this piece in any residential space, particularly spaces that are high-traffic like a living room, dining room, or office. Thanks to its unique design, it will stand out on any surface, from an antique commode to a modern desk.
How could we not fall head over heels for this Versailles bench, with its full foliage pattern in orange silk damask, enhanced with teal trim and antique nailheads? The carved wood legs are scalloped and stretched out, featuring intricate cutouts in the rear section, and the tufted top textile exhibits sheer luxury—this is a phenomenal steal. We see this piece in any foyer or entryway in a classic style or modern designed space for contrast.
These chairs are special—in addition to a bold modern aesthetic, they actually look comfortable. Due to impeccable black leather upholstery and nickel legs based in 180-degree rotation, the chairs are a delectable splurge. We see these pieces either in a high-end residential contemporary dining room or in a co-working hospitality conference room paired with a breathtaking, unique wooden table piece.
This limited-edition product is reminiscent of Italian modern design, with a lux leather seat and woven back. This is a splurge, but is well worth the spend with its bold details, including a light oak frame and a carved handle in back of the crest rail. We see this piece as a standout in a master bedroom as a side chair.
This rug offers a modern, comfortable feel yet embraces traditional style with sand-filled dark gray borders and a white floral pattern. A bonus? It is sustainable, made of 100% New Zealand wool, and woven with pure silk! This exquisite, handcrafted piece is made of high-end textiles and offers subtle color—a great steal. We see this heirloom rug as a proud centerpiece of a large, superb living room.
