Guest Picks: All the Rage on Design Blogs

What makes the blogosphere blow off with a hot item that everybody needs and needs to have? Design and decoration bloggers like to comment and post on their discoveries; they are smart shoppers, plus they share. I’ve put together a selection of very affordable items that have been on everybody’s must-have list recently. I hope you find something that you can use. — Valorie from The Visual Vamp


Chinese Chippendale Chair – $251.40

Chinoiserie remains much loved, as well as the classic Chinese Chippendale chair, if it’s the precious Hollywood Regency vintage find or a new reproduction, is a staple. This one comes in three colors.

Hand-Hooked Alexa Moroccan Trellis Rug – $334.99

The Beni rug has been a decorator item ever since Billy Baldwin used it from the 1930s into the 1980s. One with a pedigree from Morocco can put you back thousands, however this great looking contemporary variant is affordable and comes in every colour.
