I love working with Wayfair because I also use the site often for myself. I have to admit I was unsure at first because I wasn’t used to shopping for housewares online. On the otherhand, store options are becoming more limited and the quality of service and products in the brick and mortar stores doesn’t seem to be what it used to, so I find myself going back online again and again.
Recently, I had a little fun window shopping at Wayfair picking out a collection of me and mini me furnishings and accessories.
Agnes Kids Round Side Table
I love the simplicity of this table, but it still has some cool design elements. The classic oblong rounded wooden legs with the criss-cross catches the eye, but is not overly distracting from the simple function of the table.
Risom Child’s Side Chair
I love the simplicity of the webbing on these chairs and have no fear because the webbing has a water-repellent finish, so you don’t have to worry about any stains or moisture soaking into the chairs. I love all the colour choices and with the Agnes Kids table the colors would really pop against the black table top.
Children’s Mod Lounge Chair
This lounge chair for kids screams 70’s in a great retro way. Again, the colour choices are so fun and the chair is such an inviting place to go to read or to sit with a favourite stuffed animal and spin a while.
PaperClip 30″ Dining Table
I love this modern table, too. It is the perfect kitchen table, dining room table or oversized desk. The paperclip legs add a cool element of design while still remaining clean and simple. Then you can add modern chairs or mix and match for a more eclectic look.
Risom Side Chair
The Risom side chair are modern but with a pop of colour. Again, I love the simple design, but that it’s a unique look. The hard part will be choosing which colors to use for the fabric.
D’Urso Swivel Lounge Chair
Swiveling isn’t just for kids. I love this sleek retro looking lounge chair and there is something about swiveling back and forth whether you’re reading a book, rocking a child, or just daydreaming with a cup of tea in hand that makes you feel like a little kid again. The D’Urso chair comes in so many fun and fab colors too, but I think Cornaro Mist is my favourite.
LifeStyle Dining Room 22 Piece Pots and Pans Play Set
While dad is in the kitchen prepping dinner, the little ones can keep busy with their own set of dishes. I love that this LifeStyle Dining Room has a neutral palate and almost a mid-century modern feel.
Splatter 15.5″ H Table Lamp with Empire Shade
This fun table lamp feels a little Dali-esque (remember he painted the melting clocks). It is playful and yet beautifully designed. It would look great right on a side table next to the children’s Mod Lounge chair.
That ’70s Retro Alarm Clock
It is true that we live in a digital age, and that a clock like this might take a while to learn to read, but in a kid’s space I love that this retro alarm clock is analog. The kids will start to become curious and will eventually learn to read a clock like this. I like that the 12, 3, 6, and 9 are all bigger, creating a nice visual for young new time tellers.
Tonale Dinnerware Collection by David Chipperfield
The cool and calm colors in the Tonale Dinnerware collection make me want to use them for every meal. That’s what dishes are for after all isn’t it? I don’t believe in saving the good dishes for special occasions. If you made dinner and got the family around the table, that counts as a special occasion. I love the sleek lines of this set.
Silva 21.5″ H Table Lamp with Empire Shade
Continuing my love of mid-century modern style, I am a little obsessed with this table lamp. The wood and white just feels natural together and I like the lightness and simplicity of the design of this lamp. I like that you can dim the light and that the wood is counterbalanced with the aluminum base.
Burst 22″ Wall Clock
I don’t wear a wrist watch anymore, and I hate having to take out my phone all the time (we do that enough all day), so at home I love to have a wall clock in the kitchen or den. I love the mid-century modern look of this clock. It is easy to read and has just a touch of colour. I’m a fan of natural wood mixed with colour, and this fits the bill.
