Bary Dixon’s Michael Bench Spotted Again….

Last year, I blogged about seeing the Barry Dixon “Michael” bench in a couple of different places.  Well, I’ve spotted it again and I still love it just as much.

Barry Dixon used both versions in the room above.  I am particularly fond of the backless version.  Do you have a favorite?

Yellow and Grey Love….Vervain Ishtar Grey & Lemon

I promised some yellow and grey favorites this week.   How about this beauty from Barry Dixon’s “Sky and Water” collection for Vervain?

And, here it is again in a room that Barry Dixon designed for the 2009 CharityWorks Greenhouse in Virginia.

Do you spot it on the bench?

In other news, don’t forget about my giveaway of six yards of the new Thom Filicia fabric!  The winner will be announced next Monday.

Barry Dixon Michael Bench Two Ways

Today I was flipping through the January issue of Interior Design Magazine.  The Highpoint market overview section highlighted this bench.

It was designed by Barry Dixon for Tomlinson/Erwin-Lambeth.  As shown above, it has a premium cerused oak finish and a cotton/polyester blend fabric.

Barry Dixon used this piece in the 2009 CharityWorks GreenHouse.

What do you think, a peek of it here in the recent Renovation Style Magazine feature on Anna Kohler’s home?

Do you like it?  I do.  I think it would be great in front of a fireplace or in a long townhouse where the aim is to break up two spaces without hindering flow and visibility.  I love the bolsters on either end and the sort of rustic/industrial vibe it has going on.

There is another version with a back (see below).  For some reason, I am picturing this sofa in a lake-house.  Or maybe a mountain cabin….

Tomlinson/Erwin-Lambeth has a user-friendly website where non trade customers can view the furniture lines.  I like that they also show their fabrics on the website.  (Am I the only one who gets so frustrated by the lack of product information on many of the trade websites?!?)

They also have a good explantion of why their products are classified as eco-friendly–something that seems more important today than ever before!  As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this or anything else you see on the blog.
