Blue + lucite + bamboo = chair

This blue bamboo lucite chair by Go Home Ltd. (to the trade) is the newest addition to my daughter's bedroom. Since my daughter was 4 1/2 years old she has been a proficient reader. Each night after our bedtime routine of stories together, she loves to read on her own. We decided together that she would benefit from a desk, a chair and a lamp next to her bed. The chair has arrived, the other items will follow shortly.
This nearly 5' x 6' solid wood beveled mirror hangs on one wall creating a great impact. 
Do you may remember my post about wallpapering a bookcase?
Do you fancy a little lucite in your home?

Love that chair.

And the rest of the room is just gorgeous!

Natalie said...

Her room is gorgeous! I adore that chair and I am obsessed with lucite. I have a lucite stool at my vanity and I have been wanting some ghost chairs. Love how you hung the tu-tus and used the doll house as a book case- genuis.

Yes, I am still regretful about a little lucite side table that I did not win on Ebay.
Love the tutu's.

Most beautiful little girls room ever! Love the use of a non traditional color, made to look completely girly. The lucite chair is the perfect touch. You always get it right!

The enchanted home said...

What a gorgeous room! Love it...and the chair is the crowning touch to such a splendid space. Funny I have those "crowns" too....still in a box, was going to use them for my future closet for handbags! I love the feeling of her room, dreamy fit for a princess...the lucite chair is a fun trendier look but still very elegant:-)

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

Your daughter's room is too sweet....a very lucky little girl indeed! Love the chair too...I remember the image you posted after the NYIGF. There are built in desks with shelving above in each of my kids' rooms. I am thinking of a Kartell Mademoiselle in Maddie's room and a grey Ghost in Harry's room.

Style Attic said...

It's room like that I always dreamed of doing for a daughter I don't have! That is so fun and precious, just like she is I am sure :) Take lots of pictures and save them just of her space and as it evolves. She will love it and cherish the gorgeous work of her loving mom, 4ever XO, kelly

Heavenly Housewife said...

For a while, I was seriously considering the Philippe Stark Ghost chairs, but I ended up getting something else instead. Lucite is great for small spaces like in my house.

LOVE IT! I am so obsessed with lucite these days. I just had my office furniture linen wrapped and I changed the knobs to lucite. And your daughters room is too pretty. Just wanted to pop over and thank you for all your wonderful recommendations on NY. We're heading over this weekend and I can't wait.

Stevie said...

The lucite chair is stunning. I hadn't realized that you could get them in styles like that. It makes me think that I should start looking for more lucite, too.

About the room, breathtaking! One tiny thing though, if your daughter is only 4 and a half, how will you ever keep the white cushion on the chair tidy? If you can do that, you truly are a genius!

Danielle {freshquince} said...

= gorgeous chair! Wow that is a beauty!

Your daughter's room is so darling, Lisa. I saw a lucite chair at a flea market but while I was paying for my merchandise at another stand an old lady bought it! I still regret that I didn't grab it fast enough.
