Brocade Home is pressing all the right buttons when it comes to cute furniture lately despite the fact that I’m so over flocking, foil wallpaper, and velvet. That’s why I dodge all that frilly petite boudoir business and head for their furniture to see if I can snag something with personality to mix in to a space, you know that one piece of furniture that adds an exclamation mark to a room. Have you viewed the latest on their website? Here’s five of my faves of the moment.
I see this table painted in bright tulip yellow, don’t you? What a sexy pedestal base, all for $199. And this is a darling chandelier… And how cute is this chair? I also like this white patent leather cube, it’s a unique piece. And last, this silver chair – it has a lot of potential in the right space and I really like that it’s silver for some reason — metallics are catching my eye this season combined with lilac, white, and gray. I think I’m influenced lately by fashion here in Europe – I see these color combinations quite frequently. After viewing Molly Sims’ apartment a few posts down, I think that gave me a push, too. ;)

I’m always watching Metremade on etsy to see what this Australian textile designer will have next. Ooooh look at these two patterns…
Currently, she’s working with black and green and I love the results. Both patterns are available in either two colorways, green/white or black/white and I think they’re very special – so fresh. I’d love to see these on a bench or chair, especially a chair like this one.

Here’s another little shop I liked in Stockholm called HildaHilda located in the SoFo district. The playful prints are joyous and energetic and for some reason, reminded me of textiles I’d been exposed to during my early years spent in England. I really liked the weight of them, so thick and tightly woven, making them perfect for upholstery and throw cushions because they’ll last forever. I loved the dogs and window patterns the best.
Fanja is a French lady living in England that loves to sew cute things, particularly soft toys. She recently told me about her newly updated website, so for those of you with a sweet spot for handmade girls named Babette and woodland creatures, le Train Fantome is a good shop for you. Also makes for a darling gift!
