On the two days that I work at the shop, I'm exposed to 'high' design items that I normally wouldn't spend much time around. I've learned so much from working with these items; it's helped train my eye to find the 'high' in the 'low'. [ And there is nothing wrong with 'low'.. it's thrilling to find great deals for both myself and my clients. I love Sarah Richardson because she mixes an IKEA kitchen with Schumacher drapes. ]
Here are some inexpensive items that look so much more expensive than they really are - my favorite kind of stuff :)
I recently used this coffee table for a client. In my opinion, it's much more substantial and interesting than it's CB2 rival.
I had a pretty well known designer email me about this chair I designed asking where I got the fabric. I told her, you're not going to believe it, but it's only $8 a yard!
I really enjoyed sharing these with you, so I think I'll bring this post back. I tagged it "It cost WHAT?" so we can play again :)
