I really love designer L’Wren Scott’s apartment in Paris that ran yesterday on Vogue.com. (She shares it with Mick Jagger; her life is rough!) My living room is almost the same color palette as hers (minus the fantastic only-in-Paris moldings and groovy artwork). Two things I took away from it that I am considering:
1) A lucite console table. There is what looks to be one way back on the left in her living room. I’ve been thinking about one for my entry hall, but don’t want to veer into that David Hicks’ 70s era kitschy-ness that I am frankly so tired off. Scott’s looks sophisticated, and since a lucite table is basically a blank canvas, I should be able to make it work. Peekabo lucite console, below, $379, CB2.com.
2) A bench in place of a chair. I love the proportion her bench instead of chair at her desk. The Ballard Designs Monfort bench, below, would easily do the trick. Plus you can change the upholstery fabric for something with more zing. Bench, from $549, Ballarddesigns.com.
