Then, because I'm in a kinda of moody blues mood today (and thinking about blue as a color theme in one of my rooms but not really sure yet) here are the pieces I am coveting from the atelier:
The rug is absolutely awesome - it's called Light Blue Mums and it comes in a bunch of sizes - look at all your options, and the atelier's amazing custom services can even size for you if you're willing to wait a few weeks! And don't even get me started on the chairs below. . .
Available in a multitude of amazing fabrics - delicious array of fabric rolls to choose from - Blue Luce is my favorite:
And then all the fabulous pillows to brighten up any couch whether it be a vintage find, custom, or store bought - the pillows just give it that Office Space FLAIR:
Sorry can't resist - you know you want to see it again. I guess not all flair is good. But it's a good word and I'm going to use it a lot.
Just take a look at how a Madeline Weinrib rug does so much for this otherwise simple room. The rug is the flair, clearly.
Now for the part I could never quite find online - how much? A simple 4x6 at the atelier was costing around $400. Not bad, but you know I always divulge my secrets. Back to A - back to when sharing is cool and bargain hunting is considered a fine art. If you go across the street to ABC Rugs, walk to the middle of the ground floor and you will see the bargain basement section - a secret little staircase that leads you into an ABC wonderland - - and yes, 100s of Madeline Weinrib carpets starting at. . . $150. You may not get the selection you will get across the street, but then again you might just secure the find of the century - and giant pillows at $100 (originally $600). It's pretty empty in terms of people / salesmen down there, but that allowed me to blissfully lay out my favorites:
Pictures were taken on my iphone (obviously) and emails asking for opinions were sent out to my usual set of tastemakers (you know who you are) and while I can be a moody blue, let's get real. I think you know which one I ultimately went with, right? Wait and see. . . and truthfully, aren't you madly madly in love with Madeline Weinrib? And convinced that not subscribing to Back to A's email updates (yes took me the better part of this day to figure out that tricky little widget thank you feedblitz.com) is going to leave you stranded in some kind of middle of the range M level purgatory forever?
