HF Weekly Obsession: Tres Parisien!Saturday, January 05, 2008
Take one Grace Sofa, add two Grace Chairs, mix with a feminine rug and coffee table, sprinkle on accesories, and voila! you have a very Parisian sitting room.
It seems to me that everything in America is getting bigger. Big cars, big meals, and big homes full of big furniture. But what if you long for something a little, dare I say, scaled down? What if, instead of a five bedroom mansion within a rolling countryside, you dwell in a one bedroom apartment in downtown Houston? Extra deep sofas just won't do. Go for something petite and clean. The Grace sofa by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is the perfect starting point. It's small scale is made for those of you without 13 foot ceilings. It won't take up your entire living room, but leave you with space to move freely. The whole look reminds me of Paris, Grace Kelley (for whom is was named, perhaps?), or Audrey Hepburn sipping tea and polishing a glittering Tiffany diamond. Over three hundred fabrics are available for you to customize the Grace to your heart's content. Diamond not included.
