Gadora has been going round and round a lot lately, with skating that is, and thought it appropriate to include a few home decor options for those who like circles too.
Let’s start in the boudoir. Round mattresses were the rage in the Bond movies, just ask Barbara Bach. Found this patriotic circular bed on Craigslist, accompanying a furnished rental loft in Williamsburg. Click on pic to see more of Patrick’s loft.
More ingenious than renting your way into a circular bed, is having your own. Prealpi’s “Infinity” is a round bed entirely upholstered in leather or fabric that offers a multitude of configurations. eRoomService posted a nice round-up (pun intended!) on the Top 10 Contemporary round beds, if you want to peruse other options…
Of course they all beg the question… where do you get your own round sheets?
Tufted fabric, especially when applied to this curved-back sofa, screams sophistication and glam. Lizzie Nyugen of Spruce Austin confirms, “tufting originally was done to hold the padding place under the fabric.” Haute House’s “Monroe” velvet sofa, with tufted back and front, is handcrafted of rayon velvet over an alder wood and composite wood frame. Adore that it’s Made in the USA.
Not feeling the round sofa? Interiors Stylist Claudia Bryant layers a round pendant lamp, wooden side table and round doily rug. Never mind the bed isn’t made, the effect is sweet.
Gadora digs VivaTerra, and let’s face it consumerism makes our world go round. They purport their products reflect a commitment to, “uniquely fuse exceptional quality and design with eco sensitivities.” IMHO, they’ve achieved harmony with their resourceful wine barrel table, “fashioned entirely from a single fine-grained oak barrel, top to bottom.” I’d bring it indoors, snug it up near my couch, and enjoy it year-round.
Another take on the doily rug (and who knew?) is designer Magdalena Lubinska’s DIA rug. Fine New Zealand wool is woven on looms to felt, the process is patent pending. Paired here with a modern-ish sofa, it serves to ground the expansive living room loft space.
Decidedly more modern, Doris Kißkalt’s FlexiTube is a dual-purpose architectural element that functions as both a shelf or room divider.
This Armand Riviera Iron Pendant at TonicHome is brilliant in its simplicity, and complements a variety of design aesthetics. Bulbous in shape, it begs any square peg-designer to give it a whirl.
Posh Living offers a lovely vintage-inspired aviation mobile with wooden planes. While not a stretch to include this mobile in our round-up, it reminds Gadora of a tiny metal mobile my Dad used to have. And I like it. So there.
