I don't know about you… but I've had a hard time peeling myself off my sofa lately. What with post-holidays recovery and dreary weather, nothing seems more appealing than movie marathons and board games on our beloved "divan". And though my sofa is a cherished (& elegant) hand-me-down from my oh-so-stylish grandmother, circa 1971… every once and awhile I find myself with a wandering eye. Here's the best of what I've found:
I'm starting in my own backyard – because of course, I believe the pieces I've hand-selected for the Green With Glamour collection are simply stunning! I've found that Canadian interior designer, Ami McKay, designs incomperable "eco-friendly" upholstered furniture pieces. They are elegant and mod… and if you opt for the beautiful embroidery – feminine without being fussy. The Cyrilla banquet by PURE/Ami McKay is a perfect example. From Master bedroom to Dining table, Grand Foyer to cozy Living room – the Cyrilla will add some serious style to any space!

I'm a sucker for a classic style. I grew up in a Traditional American home (with an interior designer mother), so our house was mildly chic and a bit fancy without being too formal. The Denali sofa by Living Green is very much like the sofas of my childhood. And though it's actually quite versatile (could work in a myriad of spaces)… it transcends me to a time when uber-stylish interior designer, Billy Baldwin, was decorating for Hollywood starlets and NY-based "Swans".

Aesthetically, the Piazza sofa by CB2 would not typically make my list. It's a bit free-form and casual for my tastes, but in that I've spent a lovely, lazy day on one… I'm including it for it's extreme comfort factor and for the fact that – when paired with clean Mid-Century Modern decor, vibrant hues and pop artwork (as is the case with my friend's house) – it's just a great basic and wildly cozy piece!
