Play Date: Blu Dot Store Opening ….

Blu Dot is one of my favorite furniture brands for finding that perfect piece to hold a space. Whether it is a streamlined console or a quirky chair, I have found myself returning time and time again to the brand to complete my designs.  So when I got word that Blu Dot was opening up a store in SF, I actually jumped for joy and quickly made my way down to the store opening……

I am currently obsessed with the Real Good Chair – between the copper and unique shape, I am in love with them and have my fingers crossed that my client loves them as much as I do!

Loving Out Loud: Real Good Chair by Blu Dot …

Some things just hit you viserally…..like meeting your spouse, an undying love for 80s music or this chair….

The Real Good Chair by Blu Dot in copper is laser cut perfection.  The body is copper plated steel with laser cut seams meaning this baby can be stored flat – a must have for us urban dwellers with less than stellar storage space.

I feel I am in good company since it appears that uber-designers Ariel Ashe and Vicente Wolf both agree that this chair is a winner in this month’s Elle Decor.  Like them, I would use it as a statement piece in a bedroom or living room.  However, my heart is set on using them to replace our slowly decaying dining room chairs.  A little sheepskin cushion to for extra padding and you have a stylish, beautiful and uncommon seating arrangement.

And for me that makes for a real good chair to have…..

Speaking of seating, how do you handle extra seating during the holidays?  Share your advice with me  on  Facebook or Twitter .  Even better, take a shot and tag me in it on Insta.gram.  And for those of you who want to see what is percolating in my head this holiday season, check me out on Pinterest  for my musings on design, food and just plain randomness.
