C and B Bringin’ It!

I got my fall Crate and Barrel catalog yesterday and I was impressed with their new selections.  I feel like they have further refined their look, improved the quality and styling of their furniture with out going all “Restoration Hardware” and creating a strong look that is going to be stale in a few years.  They still have a variety of styles, from tufted and more traditional to the deep, clean lined Lounge Sofa.  Here are a few of my favorites from the new catalog:

 This pendant is on the front of the catalog styled better than it is shown here.  REally interesting scale and materials.  $449 – here

I am leery of a pillow back sofa, my husband had one when I first met him and it was a pain in the rear.  It always looked disheveled and was pretty uncomfortable. I like this interpretation of a chesterfield and especially like the color.  $1699 – Here

C & B gets a little industrial with a metal side table.  This is also available in a coffee table and console table version.  $549 – Here

This table is a little bit Restoration Hardware, but I love the stone top.  $999 – Here

Also a little RH style.  $1599 – Here

Raina and I saw this table a few months ago while on a shopping expedition. It is remarkably luxurious for the price.  $399 – Here

C & B maybe a little behind on the Danish Modern trend, but I think this table has some staying power.  They innovated with a metal base and the scale seems a bit different than a Danish Modern vintage table would be.  $799 – Here

A cute little preppy pillow.  $29.95 – Here

These are beautifully embroidered, hopefully even more lovely in person.                   $49.95 each – Here

Then there is all the Marimekko goodness found here.  I couldn’t even narrow it down to feature some of my favorite from the collection it is all so good.

Thanks Crate and Barrel for consistently adding beautiful items to your product selection.  It keeps you relevant and the look fresh enough that I can keep using your products in client projects.


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
