Funky Furniture Can Be So Fine

Design Inspiration Quirky / Funky

Sourcing out furniture for our home re-decor project has given me quite an education in design. I started out with a vision and have surprisingly stayed on course, but I’ve definitely gravitated toward the kind of funky furniture that crosses over to some pretty fine pieces (in my humble, self-taught opinion!).

Many examples here are by fantastic designer, Timothy Oulton. In general, though, my mission to create a mid-century modern, urban-industrial, Scandinavian vibe is where I’m going. Still, with oh-soooo much to choose from, let alone the ease of access to discover, drool over and buy stuff on-line (via DiggersList, Amazon, 1st Dibs, Fab., One King’s Lane, Etsy, At West End, V&M, Ebay, etcetera, etceteraaaah!) the learning curve has been steep. Not surprisingly, I’ve also found myself bouncing on cloud 9 for weeks!

Today, I thought I’d share a recent “decor recon” visit to HD Buttercup‘s Los Angeles show room and give you a little heavenly “funky furniture window shopping” experience of your own.
