One and Done :: Contemporary Mix

This morning as I was enjoy my morning tea and design blog time, I came across a post on Domaine about an historic New Orleans home that recently got a makeover. It’s a very fresh, light, clean space that doesn’t need a lot added to it thanks to the classic, historic bones and clever architectural updates. The furnishings are mostly contemporary but designer Ann Holden ingeniously sprinkled in a few vintage and vintage-inspired pieces that add needed texture and dimension to an otherwise modern place.

One such item is the authentic (-looking, one never knows) carved wood Bamileke Stool from Camaroon. I love how it plays off the white linen sofa and brown leather daybed, it’s an expected choice but a more formal, structured coffee table would bog down this smaller sitting area while the Bamileke keeps it airy and casual.

At MIX we have a ton of African tribal stools including this Bamileke style in a number of shapes and sizes from small side tables to larger coffee tables. Swing by one of our two locations on S La Brea in LA or click below to shop the look and bring some of this style into your space today!
