Designer Spotlight - Vanessa Creates a Contemporary Retreat February 27 2017

Here's another spotlight on one of our talented interior designers, Vanessa, Harvest, Los Gatos. We love how this project not only highlights Vanessa's work, but shows how versatile Harvest furniture can be when designing a more modern interior.

The monochromatic palette Vanessa chose is not only restful but lends itself well to more contemporary spaces. The use of various fabrics, such as leather, velvet and linen on the upholstered pieces adds texture to the cool grey theme. The other finishes such as the metal base on our Gramercy Tufted Coffee Table mixed with the polished chrome of the customer's existing end tables reminds us that not everything needs to match. This works and looks lovely!

The Laura Sofa is one of our top-selling styles as it can meld with any decor; casual, modern, transitional... it fits anywhere! The leather Simmons Swivel Chairs allow Vanessa's client to focus on conversation or turn to watch the TV on the opposite wall. Both the velvet fabric used on the sofa and the leather used for the chairs are great choices for durability and timeless elegance.

Accessories add the perfect touch for a beautifully layered look. The Diamond Weave Throw offers some contrast to the sofa, and the Alanna Large Tray is the perfect accent for the coffee table/ottoman and functions beautifully as a base for her client's favorite flower. Tucked away in the corner is the Marguerite X-Stool, again in cool greys, that can be pulled into the conversation area for additional seating.

Another one of our top-sellers is the Wales Lily Area Rug. This wool and hemp flat weave is again, both beautiful and durable.

Thanks Vanessa for sharing this project with us! 

Remember that you can get expert advice from our interior designers at any of our stores and create an inviting and comfortable home for yourself!
