Much like in fashion, accessories are the finishing adornments of a design. They are what keep the room alive and bring it all together. Many things fall into this category; artwork, lighting fixtures, pillows, you name it. When it came to the design of my bathroom, my most beloved accessory became the seating. I went back and forth on many different choices, designs and fabric; these three gems became the final touch.
This is an Italian Chiavarina chair, c. 1940, attributed to Gio Ponti. The Italian city of Chiavari is famous for its excellent furniture craft school. This typology is known for its essential shape and the characteristic lightness and sturdiness. I was able to find this high back one of a kind right here in West Hollywood at the Caché showroom.
I found this exquisite jewel at Rose Tarlow. The Old World Weavers tiger-patterned upholstery plays a nice contrast to the delicate detail in the Olympic painting. The Klismos style stays within the theme of the room with its soft, sweeping curves and intimate detail.
Here is the final seating accessory, the Vallois Occasional Chair, by J. Robert Scott. I have a long-standing relationship with them and we worked together to alter the chair, here you can see the original design. We changed the back rest to be channel tufted and heavily antiqued the gold leaf finish.
