Eye-Catching Cobalt Chaise

One of the sweetest spots in the master suite is this luxurious cobalt blue chaise, which rests underneath a skylight and offers a broad view of the patio and garden area. The extra seating takes advantage of the generous dimensions of the bedroom and makes sure no space goes to waste.

A Perfect Pair

A wider view of the bedroom shows the chaise with a nearby companion chair, a cozy crescent-shaped Maxwell chair from Bassett. The two together make the bedroom multi-dimensional—not just for sleeping, it’s a place for relaxing at any time of day. 

The Maxwell Chair

The Maxwell chair is covered in a nubby, highly textural custom fabric for contrast, but the nailhead trim echoes the trim found on the chaise.

Bold Spindles

In the terrace bedroom, where the cool color palette suggests a dreamy Southwestern sunset, this chair adds a bold punctuation mark. Designer Tiffany Brooks chose a black fabric with white piping for the custom upholstery—plus a bold patterned pillow—to add graphic punch to the room.

Wooden Details

The carved wood detailing gives this chair unmistakable personality.

Southwestern Wingbacks

The sitting area in the great room features two elegant wingback chairs—a traditionally formal style made cozy and contemporary with rustic southwestern-themed accents. Finishing a formal piece of furniture in a casual fabric, or adding pillows and throws with a more low-key vibe, is unexpected and adds visual interest.

Mix and Match Fabrics

The wingback chairs in the great room are covered in a charming custom pinstripe fabric on the front and leather on the back, set off with metal nailhead trim.

Dreamy Counter Stools

In the luxe kitchen fitted out floor-to-ceiling with neutral stone, wood and metal accents, what draws your eye? The dreamy seafoam bar chairs, which add a soft wash of color to the room.

A Touch of Nailhead Trim

In keeping with the other chairs throughout the house, the bar chairs are detailed with nailhead trim.

Cozy Single Person Swing

A great chair can transform an outdoor space, too. Out on the covered patio, this snug swing chair is the private sitting space that everyone will call dibs on.
