Dwelling and Decor Blog - Matisse Side chair

We were intrigued when we ran across the recent post from dwellings and decor blog about "elements of color: white furniture and decor". What a great article about how white can work as a neutral in your home. "When in doubt choose white!"
Included in the roundup of white furniture and accessories is the Matisse Side Chair (7) from Bungalow 5. We've been a fan of this chair for sometime. It's such a unique chair with it's "cut-out leaf" design on the back.
Imagine 6 of these in a dining room, then add the Matisse Buffet Cabinet. With these major pieces in white, you have flexibility with rug, drapes, paint to bring in your favorite colors.
The Matisse Buffet Cabinet from Bungalow 5 on it's own is an interesting piece too. Open shelving allows you to show off your prized possessions, while closed doors can hide what is private. We've even seen this piece used as an entertainment center. The "cut-out" leaf design works well with speakers and equipment, while hiding that electronic look. You really don't find such functional pieces as this one, looking so stylish. Luca Rensi is a master of this sort of design.
