Check out this recent photo shoot in designer Julia Muggenburg’s London townhouse.  Who says you have to pare back your style to include Modern or contemporary furniture?  In fact, the wild layering of Julia’s place feels more at home to me.  In fact, a Barcelona chair or daybed seem right at home here.  A powder blue LC or Cappellini’s Proust chair … art of course!  Click the photo to take a tour of this wonderful space, crack a smile, and imagine what it would be like to live here.

This little ditty from your friends at NY Times T Magazine is fertilizer for your brain to guarantee a spring-y spring!  The right light is so often overlooked, but it’s as important as good soil to a beautiful garden. The key to making your space sing!

One thing your friends at T Mag didn’t know … Roll & Hill, Foscarini, and Kartell are only three of the dozen lighting brands available at SR Hughes.  Right here in little ‘ol Oklahoma!

When you have the help of the world’s best lighting designers behind you … it’s one of the easiest decisions to make.

For a fresh perspective on how to make your garden glow (yes, there are plenty of outdoor lights too), stop into our Tulsa showroom at Center 1, 35th & Peoria.

The story also points to the strong role women played in changing the aesthetics of upholstery in contemporary design.  This tradition continues to this day at Knoll Textiles under the direction of Dorothy Cosonas.  These days fashion labels (Proenza Schouler, Rodarte) inform aesthetics.  The result is ground-breaking movement forward in design keeping the right question at the top of the discussion:  Why would you think less of what’s upholstering your chair than what’s upholstering your person?
