As I get older and my style changes, I find myself moving away from the looks I’m typically drawn to, especially when it comes to furniture. Normally, I love a skinny, tapered leg and something that screams, “I’m a girl! Look at my girly furniture!” But that all feels wrong these days; it’s too feminine and a little dated for my own taste. So when I saw these new pieces from Jayson Home and Garden’s new furniture line (designed by Caroline Scheeler and Devin Kirk), I immediately felt at home with a few of the pieces.
The square detailing in the sofa above, and the shape of the chair and bench strike me as really fresh. I typically sprint toward something lighter and curvier, but I’m connecting with the visual heft of these pieces. They’re the sort of pieces I want to sit in and really feel the weight of. As much as I love furniture that’s a breeze to pick up and move, I’m craving something that can really hold its own in a room. Each of these pieces (the Theodore Sofa, Clarke Chair and Bench) is now available online at Jayson if you’re in the market for some well-made furniture. I know the price points may seem steep, but I’m trying to work on resisting knee-jerk reactions (believe me, I have them myself) and focusing on the craftsmanship. These are high-quality seating options that will stand the test of time, so if you’re interested in investing, I think they’re definitely worth checking out. Thanks to Abbe for the tip! xo, grace
