A Glamorous Brass Chandelier

Inspired by a custom light designed by Københavns Møbelsnedkeri, our resident crafter, Megan Pflug, set out to replicate its minimalist lines and unpolished brass components. Adapting designs she’d seen by Lindsey Adelman, she devised an original beauty that comes together in less than an hour. The hardest part? Ordering the parts—which she’s made quite easy for us.

A Leather-and-Cord Headboard

Inspired by the ingenious bench cushions in Panama City’s American Trade Hotel, designed by Commune Design, Megan imagined a headboard for our director of social media and integrated marketing, Rosie D’Argenzio. Made from buttery strips of leather, leather cord, and chambray, it nails the organic modern look.

A Fringed Slipper Chair

Fringe is one of our favorite trends both in fashion and in home decor. It’s also one of the simplest ways to take any old upholstery piece from drab to fab. Megan updated a basic slipper chair simply by adding a bit of bullion fringe to its base. It couldn’t be easier—or more chic.

A Vine Garden Trellis

It’s hard to make a backyard any more elegant once you’ve installed a garden trellis made of meandering vines. Megan dreamed up this beautiful vine trellis, and not only is it utterly sophisticated, it’s also incredibly easy. Solid gold—or green.

An Antiqued Mirror

We love the look of antiqued mirror. But you don’t have to go digging through flea market bins to board the bandwagon; with a little spray paint you can transform any old—or new—mirror in your midst into one that looks like it has stories to tell.

    We have an antique round mirror like the one above the ‘cord & leather’ headboard. It has been sitting behind furniture for a while since we could not figure out what to do with it. The picture of that headboard gave us the inspiration of where to hang the mirror. Those mirrors are heavy. What or how do you recommend hanging them? Thank you for the inspiration!!
