Good Design

>> Thursday, March 11, 2010

My friend Carlee did a post on Chloe Redmond Warner today and I hopped on over to her site to check it out. What I loved about her work is the variety of style, use of materials, and sheer authenticity. Each project looks entirely unique from one to the next. There are two ways to run a design practice. #1- you develop your style and you become know for that style. People come to you because they like and want that style. #2- you become a good designer who can take on modern, understands the details involved in traditional, and appreciates all the shades of gray in between. #1 is fine. Many of the greats, including Frank Lloyd Wright, are #1s. But I am working towards #2. I like to be challenged and I get bored with the same ole same ole. I think Warner is more of a #2. Here is one of my favorites.

A pair of womb chairs and an egg chair! You can get the funky umbrella stand here.
Go to her website if you want to understand the depth of design I am talking about.

I didn't post these images so they would be a surprise to the I'm glad you went over and checked them out. I love her style, she is incredibly talented. I believe she told me that these rooms were styled with her new design kit service...which is super cool. The umbrella stand is lovely...

such beautiful design. I have some friends who found 2 egg chairs in pristine condition at a thrift store.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for leaving such a sweet comment. It means so much to me. If I knew more about design I too would want to be a #2. I'm off to explore your blog. Have a happy weekend.

P.S. the red hear was the best birth surprise ever!

WOW in seeing her work I would have to agree with you.

She is a number #2. I love all the different sorts of looks she can do!
