Fluid draping and the fine details of fabrics rendered in marble — these are the hallmarks of classic 16th and 17th century Italian sculptors like Bernini and Michelangelo. Fast forward to 2017 and California designer Sean Knibb is putting a modern spin on the same concept with his Casa Canova collection. Knibb, a well-known landscape designer who has also made his mark with interior designs that “elevate” everyday items, became taken with 18th century sculptor Antonio Canova. Canova was a master of neoclassicism and is often credited with reviving the art of sculpture, which had diminished over time. His dynamic treatment of fabrics and draping was stunning.
Let’s not leave rattan furniture solely to the living room. Rattan headboards can be so intricate and beautiful, whether painted or plain. And have you seen the rattan side tables out there? You’ll find too many to love that you’ll just have to put some in your bedroom. How do you reconcile your desire for a rattan touch with your modernist styled living room? Think halfsies. A chair like the one above will provide just a touch of the trend but those black legs keep it minimal and fresh. It’s the perfect solution to your rattan problem. It’s not fair to let the grown ups have all the rattan fun. Bring a little vintage charm to the nursery with a rattan cradle. Suddenly, every single nursery shot will be Instagram worthy. Plus, your baby photographer will go rattan crazy too.
Not happy with the way your old vanity stool looks now? How about a makeover. You can rejuvenate its design with some new upholstery or paint and you can even change the style completely. So remove the cushion top from the base and then use faux fur to wrap the stool. After you’ve covered the top, you can spray paint the base using your favorite color. Put the stool back together and you’re done.
