I’m a little bit obsessed with shopping for furniture for the Caroline Collective space these days. Randomly, throughout the day when I need a mini-break, I’ll find myself on different websites drooling over furniture. Tuesday night, after a client meeting, Elaine & I went and “booty tested” several couches at Ikea, and I think I have finally settled on a nice leather one that they actually keep in stock – I don’t have to order it. Now it is just a matter of selecting the rest of the furniture to go with it.

I realized that all of it is giving me an identity crisis with my branding. I love the swirly things like the little fleur de lis thingie in my logo, and I love brocade fabrics — but when it comes to selecting furniture, I keep going for very clean, modern lines. Mid-century styles. Danish inspired. Very minimal. I think that is a good fit though, as it is easy to decorate around it – I can dress it up or down, bring in the swirly fabrics if I want.

I keep reminding myself that if Tara was here, she would tell me to trust what I love.

And then I’ll find a really cool Victorian style couch on Craigslist which would make an awesome photo prop, and I get sucked back into the vortex of online shopping for furniture. I know that once I actually start buying pieces, this will settle down some – but right now, it is making my head swirl.

If you were to describe me – or select furniture that you think fits me the best – what would it be? If you were to walk into my office or studio tomorrow, what would you expect to see?

I would expect something in greens for something reason. But a specific green, like a light sagey green. Or maybe that it just what MY office would like if I could do one.

I think you should go with the solids on the sofas and decorate around them. It is easier then in the future if you want to swap things out.
