Stone House: the parlour

Ta da! New wall colour in the living room! 

We switched out the overworked and underwhelming Elephant Grey for Pure & Original's Old Linen. We are so happy with the change. The room feels calm and warm, and it doesn't interfere with the view outside. It also has less contrast with the chair rail.

I'm going to be honest, I am kind of sad that I am all caught up with these renovation posts. In July we got another shipment of furniture to the stone house. The vintage pieces have been loboriously aquired over the previous two years (remember we put our offer on the stone house back in 2016). 

Furniture in the room:

Mayor Sofa by Arne Jacobsen from &tradition in gold velvet. 

Fly coffee table by Space Copenhagen from &tradition in smoked oak base and Pietro di Fossena marble top.

Vintage chair by Charlotte Perriand.

Vintage Piano by Poul Henningsen (!)

Vintage rug Snäckorna by Barbro Nilsson.

Vintage rug Hästhov by Marianne Richter.

Framed drawing on left by Sean Stewart.

Framed painting on right by Ellesworth Kelly.

Accessories in the room:

On the left windowsill, a candleholder gift from Malin Appelgren.

On the right windowsill, a sculpture by Falke Svantun.

On the table, sculptures by Masanobu Ando and Keisuke Iwata, accompanied by the Pallo vase by Carina Seth Andersson.

On the sofa, a lovely soft Japanese Yak Wool blanket from Jurgen Lehl, which I used this past weekend outside on the new bench, a pillow by Jaime Hayon, and a pillow from Mourne Textiles.

Vintage light fixture is by Vilhelm Lauritzen. These fixtures were site specific, for a place called Christiansborg. We actually bought one for a client project and then lucked out finding another one for our own place!

A better view of the Hästhov (coltsfoot) rug, and a shaker stand for candlemaking.

The unresolved corner, recently a little more resolved since we brought the second of the Peacock chairs over...they just begged to stay a pair though we had initially hoped to fund the purchase of one with the sale of the other.

Kalmar Hase floor light brings quiet sophistication to the scene.

We have been debating moving an artwork to this wall from home. It's a Joshua Jensen-Nagle piece, all moody and the right colours...but is it too glossy?

What do you think?
