Jack of all Trades: Barry Dixon

My admiration for Barry Dixon is long lived and deep, so needless to say I am captivated by his new line for Vervain:

While looking on Vervain's website I came across this picture that features one of the original reasons I loved Mr. Dixon....
His ottomans....This man clearly knows the power of great nailhead...

I LOVE this man! Everything he does evokes such a warm fuzzy feeling in me :) His new fabric line is WONDERFUL! I had the opportunity to see some in person and many of them you want to keep touching for they have an amazing hand. The trims are to die for too! I can't wait to use some for a project.

Those ottoman's are magnificent. I am in love with first one and would love to design a room up and around that. It's so beautiful! I'm also a huge fan of the chair in the first photo. Bright and brilliant, yet works in such an elegant and delightful space.

I too love his ottomans. I was so sad when At Home Nashville closed because they carried his furniture line and I could just go and gaze and dream. Ah. I love that gray and yellow fabric in the first photo. So smart.

Not all that crazy about the patterns but those chairs are HEAVEN! I will take both for my house... oh yeah, I dont have one. =( They will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine!

Wow, how cool. I love the print on those chairs in the very first picture. Very unique! I'm loving the detailing on those ottomans too.

I'll have to had this guy to my "watch list". Thanks for sharing!

He is one of the best. Love that model home featured in House Beautiful a few issues ago. Great modern/classic look (my fave!)

Ooooh that skirted chair is JUST what I've been looking for -- my family room is in need of a smaller-scaled side chair and with all the leggy pieces in the room I wanted to have a skirt to balance things out.
