I recently became aware of the work of Brazilian designer Claudia Moreira Salles. Her work, currently on display at Espasso in New York City, is beautifully balanced, despite the heft of the materials. These are formally rigorous pieces that use native Brazilian hardwoods. Beautiful!

I’ve just spent a couple hours on my Sunday morning searching for modern chairs that feel warm, slightly bohemian, chic and, most importantly, truly comfortable for a friend’s new — and undecorated — apartment. Spending time poking around my own Pinterest boards, as well as some of my favorite pinners (like Sharon FarberKirill Mazin, and Sooh), was just what I needed to feel reinvigorated and inspired to do a little work around my own home.

Some of my favorite chairs from the search, and one damn cute stool:
