Milan, Day 3: Chairs, chairs, chairs!

If you've been following my adventures at the Milan Furniture Fair so for, you know I've seen a dizzying array of designs for bedrooms, living rooms, libraries and more that feature gorgeous shades of gray, charcoal, and creme with bright bursts of color.

I've loved the combination of calm emotion with hopeful cheer that these designs convey.

But I've also been captivated by the chairs. Yes, the chairs!

They range from sleek and modern to whimsical and frivolous. Some are curiosities ("how do you sit in THAT?") and some are must-haves ("I want to sit in that FOREVER").

Here are some that really caught my eye this week. Let me know which ones YOU like:

This was my favorite from Day 1 - Lavender ostrich feather!

This has been amazing week! I don't even know how many miles we covered at the fair. My feet are very tired, and we only got through four exhibit halls. Still, we saw a lot of inspiring designs.

We've got some plans for some new California Closets products that I'm so excited about, but I can't reveal just yet. Stay tuned!
