Office Organization

Well readers, we have started the long process of packing up our office to get ready for the transition to our new showroom/office space. While we are extremely excited to be moving our business forward, it is amazing how much stuff we have accumulated over the years! We are looking forward to not working from boxes and instead having a new space that is clean and fully organized. Organization is on the brain lately, so check out these organization photos that we are going to implement in our new space. Which one(s) do you like the best? Leave us a comment below and let us know!

We love this photo! The idea of mixing textures and patterns together creates a unique space. We can easily accomplish this with the products that we sell through One Kings Lane!

Walls and walls of organization are soon to come!

 We have a huge collection of magazines that would be prefect for this type of storage!

Possible conference room idea. We like the idea of having a large table that everyone can sit down at and bounce ideas off of one another.

We started a Pinterest board specifically for our new office inspiration, so check it out here too! We will be adding new ideas until the move is completed!

Dreaming of Christmas...

Happy Friday Readers! Decorating for Christmas is one of our favorite things to do this time of year. While there are many themes for you to chose from when decorating your home, we tend to stick with the classics, white and gold. Combining white and gold gives each space a sense of class and luxury, while still keeping a wintery feel. It can be done in numerous ways, so here are some white and gold looks to help you put together the perfect combination for your space.

Also, SWI loves white and gold all year round, so we are throwing in some of our own pieces to show just how great white and gold can be!

What Goes Around...

Everyone knows the saying, "what goes around, comes around." Probably the most easily recognizable examples of this is found in the fashion industry where clothing of the past becomes fun and popular again, some 20 years down the road. The design industry experiences these ebbs and flows, as well. Particular for our industry in the style, lines, forms, and colors of the past. These things are making their way back into the mainstream of the design world. They transform spaces into the modern world while still keeping an eclectic feel.  

From our new Veranda magazine, we found this article. Checkout some of the "old" styles that are becoming new again.

Inspired by this wallpaper from the 1720's, Bruschwig & Fils created a new fabric called "Lhasa." To updated the pattern, they reversed the design and made it crisper. Clearer lines, figures and trees and bee seen, compared to the wallpaper. They also have made it available to consumers in blue, shown below, periwinkle, red, lime green and toffee.

By the mid-18th century, trade was flourishing between Europe and the Far East. Thus, Asian design began influencing European design. The Royal Pavilion in Brighton, pictured below, was the seaside escape of the Prince of Wales in 1820. Because of its design style, it became the ultimate expression of Chinoiserie.


Chinoiserie can be seen in these candle sconces we have available through SWI Vintage.


At the same time that Europe was being influenced by the Far East, France was going through the Rococo movement. The Claydon House, pictured below, was built between 1757 and 1771. It is cited as one of the finest examples of Rococo embellishment.


Our Dorothy Draper inspired lacquered mirror has the look and feel of the Rococo movement.




In 1754, at the Badminton House, the Duke of Beaufort looked to Far East design when he commissioned this pagoda bed.


In 2005, designer Michael S. Smith proved that style can be as fresh as it was 300 years ago with this room he designed.
