What I See A Lot On Pinterest – Hanging Rattan Chairs

Hanging rattan chairs are in almost every house I see on Pinterest. They are very cute, but I have always wondered if they are actually comfortable. To me, they don’t look like a chair you want to lay down and watch TV on, do they? But that odd, nest shape, and the fact that they hang from the ceiling, makes them visually attractive. Let’s take a look.

VERY CUTE! Don’t you think? Do any of you have one? If yes, do you find it comfortable? Do you actually use it? I would like to have one on my porch or outdoor area, but they are expensive. It is not easy to find one for less than $450. Also, you need to make sure you have enough space to be able to swing on them, otherwise, what is the point?

As a side note, some years ago,  Jonathan Adler mentioned in this interview that the hanging chair is one of the items every house should have, and we all know that Jonathan Adler is the god of the interior designer world, so there you go.

Here is a round up of my favorite hanging rattan chairs out there. I found an Etsy shop that has them for just $250 (see last chairs on the list below). They are vintage and seem to be in pretty good condition.  I should grab one right now instead of writing this post. Have a nice weekend!

Snooping On Etsy – Woven Wall Hangings

Woven Wall Hangings are a thing. If you don’t believe me, look at these pictures.

Cute, don’t you think? A little rustic, a little sophisticated, and, a lot unpretentious.

It is not easy to find the perfect piece to decorate your wall. Pictures are obviously a good start, but you need to add other kinds of decorations to spice your home up. At least, that is why I like to do. A woven or macramé wall hanging is a great place to start. They are trending, they are beautiful, they can use a lot of wall space, and, they add texture to your home, which is something so many of us forget to do.

So, in my search for beautiful things around the web, I decided to look on my best shopping friend website, Etsy, where I found a lot of shops with beautiful handmade wall hangings, as expected.

Here are my favorite shops, if you know of another one, let me know! I would love to hear. A lot of these shops will customize a wall hanging to your needs, in case you want something more specific.

Of course, if you are up for a challenge, you can do your own woven wall hanging. Here is how.

Now, to that shop list:

What I See A Lot In Design Magazines – Panorama Wallpaper


jestcafe.com - Panorama Wallpaper

Roaming the Internet is one of my favorite hobbies. In one of my latest trips through websites and design magazines, I found Elitis wallpaper, a company that takes panorama wallpaper to the next level.

I want to use wallpaper when I remodel my house (if that ever happens), but I would like to use something edgy, unusual and unexpected. When I saw the Elitis’ collection of panorama wallpapers and murals, I fell in love.  They are raw and unpredictable! A gorgeous statement to customize entire walls. Also, have you noticed how everybody is using panorama wallpapers lately? My only concern is that, after some years, you will probably get sick of seeing the same picture/panorama in your living room wall over and over again, but, why worry about that now?

Elitis is a French company with representatives all around the world. I am sure it is expensive though. Here are some pictures to spark your creativity.

The sun of Palermo. The dazzling light at the end of the dark and cool narrow lane is palpable.    One discovers while still blinded, bas-reliefs carved by the sun.   Pottery, scrolls, sculptures invite the touch.     Charm, softness and inventiveness inspired these new designs.

What I See A Lot In Design Magazines – White Floors

The floor of my dream house is white; the floor of my children’s dream house is dirty, slimy and filthy, so, until my children are reasonable humans that understand that waste goes in a garbage can, or that pee is better disposed off in the toilet, I will have to dream about white floors instead of stepping on them.

Why do I love white floors? White is a clean canvas to showcase color. I like the idea of having pops of my favorite tones come alive in the midst of white, instead of getting lost on wood or concrete floors. If you don’t know what I mean, look at the pictures below.

Color resonates with more strength when surrounded by white, don’t you think?

Here are some examples. I am always happy to hear what do you think.

What I See A Lot On Pinterest – Butterfly Chairs

The Butterfly Chair, AKA “BKF”, “Hardoy chair”, “Safari chair”, “Wing chair” or “Sling Chair,” is a classic piece of furniture from the 19th century. The design was inspired in campaign chairs that were easy to fold and move around when traveling. It has a metal frame and a sack seat that hangs like a hammock. It is very comfortable, unless you are wearing a mini skirt that doesn’t allow room for breathing, eating, or any other normal activity that most human beings do.

Let’s look at some of these beautiful chairs for inspiration, and, when looking at the pictures, put attention at the beauty of its curves, I BEG YOU.





Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan, and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy designed the chair, as we know it today, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the 1930s. Knoll Associates acquired the rights to mass-produce it in the US, in the late 1940s.

In any case, many decades after it was created, this chair keeps on being a signature of good taste and functionality. MoMA has a Hardoy Chair in its exhibition, so, if you want a museum worthy piece of furniture in your household, go and get one of these now.





Here are some links to  my favorites ones.  The leather butterfly chairs are always very expensive; if you want a cheaper version, buy a non-leather one. Also, don’t forget to send me a picture of your butterfly chair if you have one! I would love to see it.
