As a follow up to the July 20th post, I asked Nicki Clendening of Scout Designs about the vibrant green leather on the refined chairs she used for wedding designer Tara Guérard's new satellite office in Manhattan. Turns out Nicki hit the jackpot when she found the chairs, upholstered just as they are seen here, in a Charleston antique mall. They were marked Baker and happen to be the very first thing she bought for the office. Nicki says, "I have a new obsession with green now because of it!"
So, Haskell Harris has suggested christening the leather, "Magnolia Leaf Green," and I just love how those words convey something glossy and lush. John Robshaw also chose a great description for his fall 2009 block-print pillow cover: "Veridian." Priced at $50, this cover is expected to be available in October.
This image was shot by Janet Blyberg in the greenhouse at Hillwood Museum and it is now in my favorites file.
