As I mentioned in an Instagram post a few weeks ago, I am thrilled to add a new upholstery line option to my library.   Cindy Smith, of Circa Interiors, has pulled together a talented team of architects and designers to create the Catbird Collection.  The pieces were created with the notion that a piece of furniture can inspire a room, and I completely agree.

 

I have often said every room needs something to catch your eye, and why can’t it be an upholstered piece?  The line is sophisticated, well made and most importantly, comfortable.

 

Cindy Smith has said that developing the Catbird Collection presented a welcome challenge and a privilege.

 

“As a lover of antiques, I treasure the one-of-a-kind piece and hope to translate this individuality into a range of upholstery. My aim was to create a collection of pieces that has a life of its own, holds your attention, gives spirit to a space, and perhaps even inspires a room’s design.”

 

Are you excited yet?!  I certainly am.

 

While all of the pieces are unique and beautiful, there are a few that I am particularly drawn towards.

 

Look at Cindy’s sofa, “Whitlow”.   I love how it deep it is, making it feel more like a daybed.  I can picture myself curled up on it with a blanket and a good book (or maybe even taking a nap).

Because of its versatility, one of my favorite pieces from the collection is Jeremy Corkern’s, Rebecca sofa. It’s classic enough to stand the test of time, but has enough edge to draw you in.

Paul Bates, another Birmingham talent, designed a beautiful sofa that perfectly bridges modern and traditional styles. I love the weight and the clean lines of his Sullivan sofa.

Emily Bourgeois designed several beautiful counter/bar stools. The lines in each stool are unique, yet they complement each other in a wonderful way.

Aren’t they gorgeous?!

 

I also love the Charlie chair that Bobby McAlpine designed. Bobby designed his pieces based off “a source for mature, quiet furnishings who accept their presence alongside antiquity”.  A great piece to mix in with antiques for sure.

The nice touch about this line is that you can customize the length and the fabric to truly make it your own.

 

If you live in Birmingham or Charlotte, make sure to stop by Circa and take a look at the collection.  Or better yet, schedule a road trip to look at these pieces if you live out of town.  I promise they will not disappoint.   The entire line is gorgeous and you are sure to find the best seat in the house.

 

Have a great day,

Happy Friday!

 

For today’s Friday Favorite, I am sharing the must-have coffee table book, Birmingham Style, produced by Birmingham Home and Garden .

 

Birmingham Style

 

As mentioned in a previous post, this book highlights the best design in Birmingham, Alabama.  There is a lot of talent in the city I call home, and I am honored to be included in this publication.

 

It is a collection of projects offering inspiration, ideas, and resources for readers who want to find their own style through images of beautiful homes and gardens.

 

Because I love this first-of-its-kind book for my city, and I know you will too, I am giving away two copies.

 

To enter into the drawing,  you must first subscribe to my blog (if you have not already) and share this post on Instagram and/or Facebook.   I will give a book away to one new subscriber and one to another person who shares this post.

 

Note, if you share this post and one of your friends shares it from you, not only will they be entered into the drawing, you will be entered two times.    Make sure to tag me so I know the post has been shared by you.   The winners will be announced next Wednesday.
