“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” ~ Charles W. Eliot

Yesterday, while researching J. Randall Powers, I came across an interior he designed for his mother…much to my delight, I recognized a familiar form in the living room, two Jansen armchairs from the 1940s…the shape and caning reminded me of the two 1940s fireside chairs I just refurbished…it’s quite a thrill to discover similar pieces, especially when they are highlighted in a stylish interior such as this one! Please enjoy this very chic apartment filled with inspiring furnishings and art!

I just had to share with you another new discovery from the outdoor room post…I am head over heels for the photo above! Artful, sophisticated, clean and inviting…I couldn’t wait to research the creative mind behind this space! J. Randall Powers is the homeowner and designer who conceived this stunning Houston home…my favorite is the dining room, (seventh photo) thoughtfully furnished with a Sutcliffe dining table by Dessin Fournir and Flat Bar Brno chairs by Knoll; the art includes works by Julian Schnabel and Ford Beckman…for me, this is the definition of effortless sophistication…

“I do not follow trends and do not like to be categorized by stereotypical whims of decorating. I adore the irreverence of many different periods and find that the best rooms looks timeless when they’re layered with unique objects and peppered with sentimentality.” ~ J. Randall Powers
