{design inspiration: gracefully gilded}



. . . a little obsessed with the walter lamb armchair -- the original 1940s collection came about as a result of experimentation with bronze and copper tubing salvaged from sunken naval ships, and while the modern version is made of waterproof bronze, it's much too lovely to keep outside . . . and no shelf could possibly be complete without a set of stunning pink quartz and gold bookends -- hardly a more beautiful colour combination and so luxuriously elegant . . .

{also:} more gold -- pretty dishes & a coffee table

{p.s.} weekend wishes + links to follow, and still catching up on comments -- thanks so much for the lovely thoughts here xo

I recently read that 'gilded' is back - in my book, it never went out! I love the look of a gilded piece.

Gorgeous! Love how all these semi-precious metals are coming back big. Am especially fond of copper right now.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead.
