DwellStudio's New Furniture Line - What I Covet

This popular children's home and fashion brand branches out with a line of furniture and home furnishings that's all grown up and sophisticated -- but still a little playful.

Jaime here from Design Milk again to share my latest nest obsession: DwellStudio furniture.

Widely known for its children’s line of clothing, accessories and bedding, it feels like DwellStudio grew up over the past few years and has finally matured into an adult. Feast your eyes on their much-anticipated line of furniture and furnishings, headed up by creative director Christiane Lemieux, who just published her first book, Undecorate. DwellStudio has been slowly launching new products over the past few years, each release paving the way for a line of furniture and home furnishings.

The furniture is a robust collection of upholstery and accent pieces following on the heels of DwellStudio’s debut accessories collection, which launched earlier this year. Rounding out the DwellStudio offering, the furniture pieces are much more glamorous than I had expected! The modern geometric and graphic patterns found in most of DwellStudio’s litextiles have been softened and romanticized to excellent effect.

And while I’ll admit, some of the pieces are a little bit out of my price range – like the silver leaf Franklin Media Cabinet, pictured, which retails for $2,040 – I think it’s worth saving my pennies and pairing one high-end DwellStudio piece with a finds from Target, IKEA and HomeGoods.

If you need a fix right now, I’d recommend the budget-friendly Pyramid Mirror ($248) or Sebastian Pedestal Table ($480). For under $100 you might not be able to score any furniture, but you can pick up some hot accessories such as the Linking Trellis Bulb Vases ($73) or Gold Triangles Drinking Glasses (pictured; $63).

I think my most favorite piece from the entire collection is either the Hans Chair ($1,344) or the George Sofa (pictured above; $2,160)...or maybe the Gate Armoire ($2,630). Okay, okay, so I can’t choose a favorite, but how can I when all of the pieces are so gorgeous?

Which piece is your fave?
