Hi Designistas!

Ever see a great photo in a magazine and think... 

Wow that must have cost a LOT of money!

Well, here at Within Studio, we think that you can make a little money..look like a LOT!

So as a challenge, we took this amazing photograph from the home of Victoria Hagan

(fabulous Interior Designer)


So we found the headboard at Crate and Barrel for $699-$899

The green damask pillow is from Kirtamdesigns for $36

White glass table lamp from Lamps Plus for $213

Nightstand was found at Crate & Barrel for $249

Add some fun art from Printwork for $25 and you are done!


What do we think?

......If you must know... the rooms tables are from Victoria's personal collection..

the headboard was custom made..

the lamps are by Antony Todd

and the bed linens are by Frette...

oh and the white coverlet is by Calvin Klein Home....  =)

Designistas! How are you?

Today we wanted to share with you a little project that Within Studio is working on!

Two of our fabulous clients have some amazing furniture that they are putting in our hands to recover....

They have a Hans J. Wegner Bear Chair and Arne Jacobsen's Egg CHair and of course the Eames Lounge CHair!

All Originals! They are so lovely!

First lets discuss the Bear Chair... which we will place in their library...they currently have it in it's original blue fabric...

which has now faded to nothingness...a grayish bluish thing..

we are considering bright white or a nubby cream... or perhaps go back to blue? What do you think is the best color for this 

amazing classic?


As for the Egg Chair, it will sit in the main living room, in all it's amazing glory!

It is in it's original red fabric which after so many years has been worn and again faded from the Arizona sun.

We decided on a soft solid...but what color? So many to choose from!

Some people like leather, but for this animal friendly company...we decided faux all the way!


Finally the beautiful and timeless Eames Lounge Chair...oh so comfortable and elegant!

But for some reason anything but the black leather doesn't seem to look right...

It needs to be we would like to go again with black...but do an animal friendly faux leather instead...

No one needs to will be our little secret. 



For the Egg Chair we are looking at Knoll Textiles Ultrasuede Collection.  Click here for more.

Ultrasuede is a microfiber that is super durable!  This praticular one is 80% recycled.










For the Bear Chair we are thinking about Knoll Textiles Classic Boucle Collection.  Click here for more.

The rich, nubby texture of Classic Boucle is evocative of traditional hand woven upholstery textiles.

It is so yummy to touch! The epitome of Timeless!

For the Bear Chair we are also thinking about the Knoll Textiles Cameo Collection.  Click here for more.

Cameo is a modern update of a Knoll classic from 1947.  It has a saturated color palette and a soft,

chenille hand...and we wanted something soft and white with texture... there we have it!











Finally, the beautiful Eames Chair...

We decided to use Anzea Faux Leathers.  Click here for more.

This first one is 100% Plyurethane with Polyester Knit backing.

This means that it is SUPER durable!








Our second option is called Wow.

This one is a water based polyurethane that is PVC Free, Formaldehyde Free,

Phthalate Free, Heavy Metal Free, Low VOC..... and a bunch of other goodness...










That just about sums it up for us...

now back to work!
