My parents were in town for a long weekend, so I got to hang out with them yesterday for my birthday. Wanted to share a quick peek at a few of the things my mom (aka Dory) gave me. A giant box arrived last week which I was instructed not to touch, shake or look at too much. No wonder! Check out the size of the awesome antler she found in Michigan to put in my house. She also surprised me with a handmade-by-mom loopy throw pillow. My obsession with cream and white things continues.

This bad boy belongs in my house. With my future black pug. And my future self in pajamas, snacking on some caramel corn on a cool fall night. The Pelican Chair was designed by Finn Juhl in 1940, 71 years ago and it still manages to maintain its forward-thinking edge. Chair design like this makes me swoon for furniture and sparks a tiny part inside that yearns to have my own chair design manufactured someday. I wonder what that process entails!? You can find the Pelican Chair for sale at Design Within Reach. I just texted Jean-Pierre to bring back caramel corn from his grocery store run. A girl can pretend in the meantime.

A few years ago I told my mom (Doreen, aka Dory) I wanted to collect trays. For me it's a mix of pretty modern and a little danish vintage. I have a think for teak and sexy woodgrain, but wouldn't it be great to have a huge cabinet full of wonderful trays to move around your house and for serving and entertaining? I think so. What's your tray type? Brasilia Tray | Jonathan Adler Lacquer Wood Trays | West Elm Stockholm Tray | Ikea Vintage Tray | Etsy Scroll White Tray | CB2 Gryfino Tray | Crate & Barrel

As some of you already know, I have an obsession with furniture design, and more specifically chairs. If I could have a house with a room or two full of beautiful chairs that I could move in and out and around my house, I would. Today's chair affair is the CH445 Wing Chair by Hans J. Wegner from 1960. I love Danish design. I love this chair. I also love aviation and the contrast of very linear and angular shapes against a beautiful textile. I would feel ready to "take off" at any moment in this beauty. Enough said.
