We have always loved the ladies in Lilly Pulitzer. It’s that east coast preppy chic that we are suckers for. Besides, anyone who can pull off Kelly green and frosted pink is okay in our book. Enter Margaret Elman and her new line of furniture called Chaircouture. Margaret takes classic, vintage furniture and shocks them back to life with vivid fabrics, including our favorite, Alexander Girard. The final result is both whimsical and sexy…just like Lilly.
Now, unlike classic designers and more like Lenny Kravitz and the rest of the new Glam-shlock…er, we mean glam-rock designers, some of the furniture is so specific that can already feel a little last season. That’s why instead of plunking down the big bucks, we recommend looking at the pictures for inspiration and then getting to the fabric store and creating your own furniture couture.
