So there’s this website called Soft Surroundings which frankly I find kind of an odd name and based on the heavy emphasis on their fashion collection on the home page I probably never would have bothered clicking that “Home Decor” link if I hadn’t had an inkling they were hiding some good stuff in there. They describe their home collection as French inspired which is pretty evident. It’s fairly traditional stuff but with rustic, industrial, and even a little modern influence mixed in there. My favorite kinds of homes are eclectic, those with carefully chosen elements from several styles, and “traditional” is one of the most fun styles to throw into a room to mix things up. Who can resist an opulent crystal chandelier or a beautifully constructed wingback chair? Well I certainly can’t.
Oh did I mention a lot of this stuff is very reasonably priced? Restoration Hardware is selling a very similar floor lamp to the one featured below for almost four times as much. Whoa.
