The Hollywood regency style wheat table with glass top has been one of those items that has been popping in design magazines the last couple of years, and it is making a huge comeback. You can find it on eBay or antique markets, flea markets if you are lucky, but I was not able to find a copy or reproduction of the wheat table. But I wouldn’t be surprised if indeed someone is starting reproduce this unique table some time soon.
One of the most famous pictures of Coco Chanel is the one taken for Hearst magazine, Chanel in a white chair. The chair originally was just a prop for the photo, but later on was purchased and now it resides at Coco Chanel’s apartment. I think she would approve, it reflects her design style and goes perfectly in the room. One of the things to mention is that Coco Chanel used dark colors for the walls, and the wooden furniture was black, giving the room luxurious feel, but light colors for upholstered furniture and a lot of glass and crystals to bring lightness, and feminine delicateness to the space.
The quite opposite to the feminine objects are the statues Chanel collected. Coco Chanel liked combining antiques with modern items, and creating spaces that still today look stylish – style is forever.
