The Friday Find: The Lyla Side Chair from EQ3

The Lyla Side Chair, EQ3

Oh heeeeey ya'll. Look at me all over this Friday Find post after a several-months long hiatus. Much has been the happs around here at EMME Design HQ and while we've never NOT EVER stopped shopping, we did need a wee break from blogging. BUT WE'RE BACK BABY. 

And since it's summer and all I can think about are breezy white curtains billowing inward from a gentle breeze through an open window and lazy days spent lounging on a dock with an ice cold drink in hand, my tastes have shifted from sleek city styles to more a more relaxed farm-fresh aesthetic. And hence, I give you, the Lyla Side Chair

I've been dying to use these perfect chairs in a space since I first laid eyes on them and though I think there are plenty of city homes that could easily benefit from this airy, stylish seat—particularly in a kid-friendly eat-in kitchen—where I really want to work with them is in a relaxed cottage kitchen or a gathered round a country table heaped with fresh-cut wild flowers and veggies straight from the garden. You feeling me? 

These babies are not only comfortable (yep, I mean it, even sans cushion) and AFFORDABLE but they come in six colours including standard black, white and a pretty pale grey, plus a few great pops of colour like forest green and cerulean blue. They were once available in PINK! and YELLOW! but it appears those hues are currently not available. SAD FACE. 

I would be remiss of me not to mention Miss Lyla Side Chair's adorbs cousin Lyla Arm Chair because I mean just look at this cuteness would ya:

Both the Side Chair and the Arm Chair are also available as counter and bar stools. 

It is not a well kept secret that us EMME Designers get a little more excited than can be considered normal when it comes to good chair. The Scandinavian Windsor is a darn near perfect specimen in my mind. BUT it is easy to eff it up. The Lylas have minimal, modern lines and great proportions making them ideal for use across a variety of design styles and situations. Just keep in mind that not every variation of the Windsor can do the same. 

Need a little advice on when and where to use a chair like Lyla? Or whether she might make a good addition to your furniture family? We'd love to discuss! Drop us a line, we'll even answer from the dock!

The Friday Find: Lounge Chairs by Kipp Stewart

What's up TGIFers? Can I kick this off by saying that I have literally ZERO business even contemplating the mere notion of looking at 1st Dibs on a Friday afternoon when I'm feeling a little shoppish. Like I should actually have my internet license revoked immediately. 

But, BUT! I wanted to kick off a new feature here at EMME blog called, as you can see, The Friday Find. Mostly because it's a super fun thing to do on a Friday and this is our site and we can do things like this and call it "working" if we want to. 

I had to start the first one off on the right foot—you know next week I'm going directly to H&M Home—and when I stumbled across these caned lounge chairs by Kipp Stewart I got the familiar ringing in my ears and spots in my eyes that tell me it's love at first sight. Sadly this love is going to go unrequited unless anyone out there (ANYONE??) has a cool $5,500 (US) kicking around and would like us to design your living room around these twin babies.

If this sounds like you, CALL US IMMEDIATELY. If it doesn't sound like you, we'd still love to hear from you and help you find some chairs that make you feel like blacking out too.
