House Beautiful Features My Favorite Miles Talbott Settee/Banquette

I'm always excited when my new issue of House Beautiful arrives and today was no exception. For months after we introduced our upholstery line Miles Talbott Furniture last year, I'd been fawning over Joe Ruggerio's Wong Settee (MTF calls it a settee . . .House Beautiful features it as a banquette . . .either way it's lovely!) Just last week our designer Rachael was telling me she thought she'd found a spot for it in a project she's working on in a client's home. I hope it works!
I was thrilled today when I saw it in the March issue of House Beautiful in the "I'm Looking For A Banquette" feature. Their description of how to use a banquette is just right: "Tuck it into a corner, place it at the end of a bed, pull it up to a dining table. Don't you just love a banquette?" Yes, I do!
I also love when I'm reading design magazines and come across products that we carry in our store. It's a nice reassurance that the things we love are also being singled out by editors and designers. This month's issue was no exception. Here are a few other items featured in the March issue that are also available at The Nest Egg.

In their feature on rugs they highlight runners, describing that "runners are all the rage, and not just for hallways. They're showing up next to beds, in kitchens - all over the house." The Company C Chloe rug is featured in Pewter (#6 above, bottom left). Just one of the many beautiful runners that Company C has to offer. We have all of the swatches in our store, available to check out to color match in your home before ordering.

I see this antiqued gold sunflower mirror from Two's Company (above fireplace) pop up in magazines quite a bit but it's so versatile, it's easy to see why designers choose to use it so often. The mirror is 34.5" and is a great price at $345. In fact we just received a shipment of them yesterday!

For years, we've had a selection of ceramic trays from Tozai Home called the St. Honore Tray that were always a best seller. We were thrilled last year when we saw they were introducing two new patterns. The geometric brick tray is shown above (top right) in Blue/Olive. It's also available in 2 other color options as well as a zebra pattern. It's just 8" long and can be used in so many places in addition to just the bathroom. It's great on a desk for corralling paperclips, on a nightstand for jewelry or in an entryway for keys. All styles are currently available in the store. Both the geometric brick trays and the zebra trays are available for sale on our website and in our store at $40 each.

Thanks House Beautiful for another great issue!
