sneak peek...figments

peggy lo, owner of providence design shop figments, was kind enough to share a sneak peek into her beautiful blue dining room. you can see a full sized photo right here and a description in peggy's words below. [thanks peggy!]
"Our small bungalow was built in 1935 by our neighbor's grandfather. When furnishing the space, we went to our dealer friend, Kevin Regan, who owns a great vintage modern furniture store, Acme, in Providence. The dining chairs were Eames knock-outs from the '50s. They were once classroom chairs and are extremely comfortable. The chair in the foreground is from IKEA. I covered it with fabric from Asia so it would look better. The pattern reminds me of Japanese designer, Mina Perhonen's work."

Grace, I thought you had mentioned recently that there was going to be a sneak peek of your place or am I making that up? I know you recently showed your SJP curtains and your reupholstered sofa. I was hoping to see your new OK wallpaper and your kitchen with your new kitchen knobs.
