WS home

I love WilliamSonoma home - I anticipate the seasonal catalogs from them like it's 'World of Interiors' , 'Domino' , 'Elle Decor' or some other publication! Check out these beautiful nickel and glass trays. I am so resisting getting the rectangular tray for my coffee table! It would be SO BEAUTIFUL THERE!!!!
The Presidio bed, alone in leather and in a room setting


I especially love their Presidio collection of furniture. I hate when everything is matchy matchy -but I really love each piece so much. I want the bed, the chair, the couch and the settee/daybed! I guess you could always mix and match velvet and leather, etc. I love the clean and classic lines of them -they're very architectural!
However there is one thing in the catalog I can't find on their website or in the print version. In this photo below you see that basket beside the couch with all the 'architectural digests' in it? (yes, my eyes are that good). I would love that beside my couch with all my 'world of interiors' in it that are curerntly hiding in the recesses of my bookcase. Anyone have any idea where to find a storage container that shape and size?? I just may break down and buy it!
I went to the william sonoma home store in Portland, oregon every day I was there just to hang out! I got some great silver mint julip vases/cups there as well as a suede edged cashmere blanket! DC really needs one of these stores!! Are you listening, WS home? I would SOOO work at you part-time!

Things That Inspire said...

I like the WS Home catalog too...but the thing I took away from this post is your endorsement of the World of Interiors. This is the third time I have read about that magazine this week! I have heard it costs a small fortune to subscribe, but I get the feeling it is worth it.

Psst, Take a look at Target too, I found some great lamps and a mirrored tray which I love! I have the WS Catalogue and look at it often!

TTI, It's worth the subscription!! You can do 2 years instead of 1 at a reduced price. If I only had to chose 1 magazine to get a month, WOI would be it!

The tray I have currently on my coffee table is from Target, PVE, from the Victoria Hagan collection -I love it! Thats the only thing keeping me from buying this WS one! I LOVE target!!!

i think the w-s nickel and glass trays are perfection.

you're so right about world of interiors. it's a bargain when you consider you can skip all the other publications (IMHO).

the post below on symmetry was so inspired and totally brilliant.

Wow, thanks Paul! What would be your other 'must have' publication do you think?

Paul Pincus said...

tatler (i'm shallow), I-D, arena homme, british esquire, art & auction (the most fun serious art publication), blind spot, fantastic man and the paris review.

that's my short list...but i'm a magazine junkie ; )

I'm a magazine addict as well, Paul -I'll have to check some of those out!! My parents get art & auction, I may have to give it a second look now!

I was wondering where you got that mint julip cup for me, I've been looking for it everytime I go to the WS cooking store. Silly me, I didn't think about their home store. I want to buy a few more now I know where to get it.

Oh, now I gave away my secret source! LOL thats a no-no, loda! Hope they still carry them!
