Vintage Chesterfield leather green armchairs

Chairs we can sink into – something we’re always on the look out for. Not only do we love these chairs simply  because of the Chesterfield style, but also because of the gorgeous green leather. We imagine these chairs would complete a modern man cave, library or sitting room – and lucky for you – they’re available right now.

English Campaign Style Secretary Chest

English Campaign style furniture has become very trendy over the last couple of years. We love this piece because of its function – a desk and storage space. This chest is perfect for the high rise dwellers who are looking to maximize space in lower square footage home. You can’t go wrong with the mix of the black lacquer finish and brass details – absolutely timeless.

Mid-Century Italian Poltrona Frau Velvet Sofa

Who doesn’t love the look of rich velvet fabric on a sofa or armchair? This Poltrona Frau sofa along with the matching armchairs, are a staff favorite in the gallery right now. We love the swooping lines and the brass legs. The entire set was recently reupholstered in a dark teal velvet, a wonderful addition to a great room or loft space.
