While our Wonders of the World tour may only be a virtual one, the information is real and can lead you down a path of self and style discovery.
So far, our series has covered the Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China, Hagia Sophia and the Colosseum. We’ve explored these celebrated structures, we’ve curated collections of furniture and decor around them, and we believe they can serve as inspiration behind your interior design, especially if you gravitate towards Indian, Asian, Byzantine or Italian colors, materials and motifs.
Those of you who feel an affinity with all things French may find your inspiration at today’s destination, which stands at a soaring 1,063 feet tall in Paris. One of the most recognizable structures in the world, the Eiffel Tower is the City of Love’s ultimate icon. Its iron lattice construction is a feat of extraordinary artistry and engineering, and these 5 items are just some of the pieces you can use to create an Eiffel-style space.
Fit for quaint bistro settings, rustic country cottages and eclectic modern lofts, the Fritz chair’s vintage industrial design possesses a powerful magnetism that draws it to interiors of all kinds. Simple in silhouette, the metal seat is decked in a distressed black finish that lends salvaged charm.
Get low or rise high on a design that truly cranks it up. Built to ascend from 30” to 42”, our industrially-inclined Marx table allows you to make adjustments based on what the occasion calls for. Start mornings off with breakfast served at standard height, then elevate for evening appetizers and cocktails. Made of iron in a nickel finish, this metal marvel will make every meal a hit.
Romantic notions of divine dining are rekindled in this heirloom-inspired china cabinet. Distinguished by a charming weathered black finish and adorned with fine moldings, the piece has been carefully crafted to convey classic form and taste. See the entire Collette collection.
When it comes to smooth lines and polished good looks, this chair nails it. Two rows of embellishment accentuate this seat’s alluring silhouette, which features swooped arms that curve with grace. Upholstered in tailored black fabric, its impact is dramatic.
Like the lattice work on the Eiffel tower, this lamp captures the strength and grace that can arise from iron construction. In addition to illuminating rooms, the design enriches them with its sculptural allure and dark bronze finish.
