I am so excited to introduce a new feature on AphroChic! It’s called “On the Hunt”, and it’s an opportunity to help you find furniture and decor that you may have spotted in a magazine, online, or even in your favorite movie or TV show. All you have to do is drop me a line, let me know the item you’re looking for and where you first saw it, and then I will track it (or something similar) down just for you.
I really hope you enjoy this new feature. There is nothing that makes me happier than helping people find home decor they are sure to love. So, let’s get started. A few weeks ago I received this e-mail from AphroChic reader Lucienne Augustin:
Last week, I moved into my studio apartment and I went on dominomag.com to [find] some inspirations to decorate my new place. The online magazine did a feature on Rashida Jones’ tiny apartment and I love her sofa. Can you help me [find] where to buy the sofa, mirror, headboard and the side table next to the fireplace?
Congratulations on your new place Lucienne! I was able to track down some finds similar to the ones featured in Rashida’s apartment:
The Mirror and Side Table
This Inlaid and Mother-of-Pearl Flower Mirror can be found at Wisteria. A beautiful accent piece to simple black and white decor, it will look beautiful over a fireplace or entry table in your new apartment.
I couldn’t find the exact side table in Rashida’s apartment, but this Isabelle Side Table from Lamps Plus (not many people know they also sell furniture) is similar with its graceful style and curvy lines.
There are so many choices for upholstered beds out there, but the Cara Bed from Z Gallerie is very similar to the one featured in Rashida’s apartment. Beautifully tailored with nailhead accents, you can leave this bed as is, or get it recovered in a toile fabric like Rashida did.
Finally, Rashida’s classic sofa is quite a find. Similar sofas can be found at Anthropologie, Horchow, and Ballard Designs, but I am partial to the Amalfi Sofa at Jayson Home and Garden. A gorgeous frame in a neutral gray upholstery, this sofa can be easily reupholstered in off-white.
So much of the fun in decorating is the hunt for the perfect piece. Let me help you find something amazing, and submit your “On the Hunt” request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
