style board: chic & thrifty

Let's say a I have client who saw this lovely room in Architectural Digest April 2011. And said client is not an antiquaire... and voila, a relatively inexpensive replica room. Well, at least more inexpensive than the stunning room above.

I followed the Art Deco-mod glam style, but trying to find affordable gilded furniture is a bit tough, so I swapped black lacquer for the gilded seating pieces. Both chairs are fantastic, but I would re-upholster the light one with a coral print fabric to go with the fabulous coral velvet. I couldn't find a brass table that I liked, price or style, so I chose the always reliable bamboo bench from Pearl River and decided to re-finish it with gold leaf. As for the columns...still searching.

sofa: Panache Sofa in black lacquer, sofa fabric: Designers Guild Brera Lino Calico, floor lamp: Lamps Plus, chair #1: Etsy Rediscovered Style, chair & pillow fabric: Mood Fabrics, side table: Grandin Road, bamboo table: Pearl River, gold leaf for bamboo table: Mona Lisa Imitation Gold Leaf Kit, rug: Domestic Modern, chair #2: Etsy Rediscovered Style
