While perusing the Tory Burch Holiday collection online last night I instantly noticed our designer X-Bench in Volumes of Velvet Fuchsia used prominently as a prop. The Well Appointed House and Tory Burch are far from alone in our X-Bench love: Margaret Russell and Elle Decor featured the X-Bench on the cover of her new book Style and Substance and it landed the number three spot on Jonathan Adler’s 10 Commandments for happy chic.
Tory Burch has made her brand synonymous with modern sophistication, so it might be interesting to find how open she about drawing upon inspiration from the past. Using pictures from Jerry Schatzberg’s Paris 1962: Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior, The Early Collections and Audrey Hepburn’s perennial style she came up with a collection steeped in black lace, chiffon and a little sparkle of leopard metallic.
Ever since we revisited J-Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyonns‘ dressing room we haven’t been able to shake the idea of decorating one of our own.
Using Tory’s Parisian chic collection and Lyonns’ ultra girlie changing station I created one using our favorite items from The Well Appointed House. (X Bench included).
