The history of furnishings is fascinating because it relies on individual taste and timely trends. But furniture is also where we live our lives. At the office, we sit in chairs at desks surrounded by book shelves. At home we lie in bed and reach for a book by the light of a lamp. These objects inform the way we live, determine our level of comfort and act as manifestations of our attitude towards space. That’s why I love statement pieces. Yes, we love a Louis chair here and there (especially when it’s upholstered in a bright new fabric) but we see it often. Differing shapes and wild designs keep us on our toes and add a bit of spice to every day décor. Obviously color in itself can be a radical statement (see Color Me ____) but individual pieces of furniture are exciting and challenging. Chairs tend to be very exciting for me because there are so many rad, unique chairs out there. Contemporary designs have become extremely creative and futuristic looking. There are tons of ways to create a design moment in your home. Bold pieces are fun and so exciting, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
 When I say rad, you better believe I mean it.
