Sneak peek at our new Calvin chair & Milton sofa

The Milton sofa is a wonderful design from Candice Olson.  As much as all of us at by Design have loved it in the past, we think this new execution is one of the best we’ve managed.  Marlene has shown it in a relaxed and comfortable (but classy!) fabric.  The casual fabric on the somewhat formal lines of the sofa gives a visual surprise — which we think is a design technique that never grows old.

And don’t be fooled by the Calvin chair.  What appears to be a simple, traditional wing back chair is anything but.  Start with the severe (and amazingly comfortable) angle of the back, add in the nail head details, the almost contemporary tapered leg and the deep tufting — and you have the Calvin chair.  A chair that begins its own traditions.

The tables are the start of our Rustic Chic room in our store here in Des Moines.  We’re using warm taupe colors and recycled woods to create a warn & wonderful room.  More on this great look coming soon!

Although by Design no longer carries Candice Olson designs, if you love the look, the colors, and the fabrics, by Design can do that for you.
