All the Trimmings

On his site Tim Clarke offers a crisp Tower 20 Store catalog. (Look for "catalog" in the small menu at the bottom of the homepage.) Much of the upholstered furniture sports unfussy-but-rich details. Take for example the surfer-chic Pipeline sofa.

 
Here, it is shown in striped linen with tan leather -- the welt, the band at the skirt, and the tab closure are all leather. Whether you are shopping for a chair, ottoman, or sofa, or are just looking for inspiration, this catalog is worth a peek.

This is what I love about blogs - this is such a great find. Tim Clarke is new to me and I could see using his things in a variety of applications - from the lace-back slipper chair to the unique lamps. Love the banding on the white sofa. Great details. Marija

LL -- So glad you like the leather! The combo of the stripes and trim reminds me of canvas steamer trunks.

so beachy vintage. The leather detailing reminds me of a vintage piece of luggage paired up with an old vintage beach chair.
