Crate and Barrel and CB2 have been great over the years for when I want to kick up a slightly more modern vibe at a moderate price. Lately, I have been loving what they are doing! Have you been into either store recently?
I was in Crate and Barrel to check out this sofa for a client:
It’s REALLY comfortable and has a sleek line with a nice wooden base. It’s made in the U.S. by Lee Industries and is customizable.
It’s for a family room that’s open to the kitchen (might have some eating going on here so the navy is a good choice). We like this Nola rug with it. Looks more like the sample above.
For a different client (but they happen to be friends) we just bought this coffee table. The cement top has a cool finish in person. It’s going into a room with a lot of stained wood already so this is a nice change from more wood.
I want these comfortable leather club chairs for ME!
But for now, I’m dressing up our current leather chairs with these reasonably priced woven cotton pillows from CB2. (they are 20″ squares but make sure you get their 23″ inserts).
CB2 is also a good place to pick up updated vases like this one.
Crate and Barrel and CB2 have fun accessories like these…
After I published the last post “Seven Healthy Habits to Feel Happier”, my son sent this text…
Now THAT made me happy! And then my sister called “to say hello while she was chopping celery sticks for display in the fridge.” Ha! If you read the post you know what she is talking about.
PS. You have probably noticed the advertisements on classic•casual•home. There are several costs involved with running the blog like technical assistance, web hosting, website design, “Google friendly” widgets and for a reliable email server (since many of you said you were not getting them). Are your eyes glazing over? Anyway, the ads offset these costs. Thank you so much for understanding. You are the best!
