Designer's Go-To Faves from Real Simple

I was reading the October issue of Real Simple magazine yesterday and came across the article "The Wow Factor" where they reveal 21 design pros secret go-to pieces that transform their spaces. Some of them were surprisingly accessible! Here are a few of my faves...
Designer Tricia Huntley chose the West Elm Origami Coffee Table on sale now for only $319!! What a steal! It is a wee bit small at 28" diameter but the top is bone and at that price....truly a steal with the WOW!

Designer Jessica Becker chose Arteriors Zanadoo 12L Iron Chandelier from Layla Grace. This piece is such a show stopper- I can see why she chose this to add the WOW!

Designer Kyle Schuneman selected what he calls the "little black dress of chairs" with the Hans Wegner wishbone chair at Design Within Reach. (Sorry for the blurry photo...couldn't get a large clear one off the site!)

Designer Dana Lyon chose one of my faves, the Faceted Mirror Side Table from West Elm. It is now on sale for $159...are you kidding? This can go in any room!
Designer John Call selected the Camille tufted linen settee from Restoration Hardware for its versatility. Gorg!

If I could throw my own faves in it would have to be the Jute Chenille Rug by West Elm. It is a go-to in my book and never disappoints!

Do you have any design faves that just always seem to work? I would love to get your inside-secrets!


  1. I would seriously die for that setee from Restoration Hardware!!!

  2. Ooooo - that Jute Chenille Rug looks familiar, and lovely! Was a favorite home purchase of mine. ;-)


I'd love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for stopping by and sharing!
