the best products i didn’t style-spot, part iii – julie browning bova for stanford


How fantastic is Julie Browning Bova?  Her collection for Stanford Furniture deserved a “Style Spotter” card on every single piece.  Next time, Julie, I promise!  So here’s a round-up of a few favorites until I can get back there in October.

My super-stylish friend Shay style-spotted the Yonkers Ottoman first … and who can blame her?  I love the equestrian details that are Julie’s signature, and the horse bit here is just so fun.  I use ottomans all. the. time. because they are just so versatile!  An ottoman (or two) is a fantastic substitute for a cocktail table if you have young twins or triplets.  The cushioned edges are much softer on a little head than a wood or glass table.  Remember to choose a durable fabric, though!

When your little ones have graduated from the “intense baby-proofing,” you can repurpose the ottomans in any number of ways — under a bench, paired with a chair, you name it.  The Tac Ottoman is another fabulous choice, and — with nailhead trim — you wouldn’t have to worry about the twinks pulling on the horse bit!

Double your pleasure, double your fun” with the Wildaire Mirror because it’s a “two-fer” … meaning you can use it horizontally or vertically.  I like to joke that my twins were a two-fer at Babies R Us!  

Of course, just designing an incredible furniture collection isn’t enough for Julie — and we are all anxiously awaiting the June 2012 debut of her stationery and gifts line with Boatman Geller.  I’m already a Boatman Geller fan, so this is just a match made in heaven for me!

Do you like equestrian style in your home?

    I LOVE equestrian style. We have 2 horses, so we got into it naturally, but I love the inspiration from Julie BB- gotta take some old "bit's and use them on something ASAP! Thanks! Nancy

    Beautiful! I am such a sucker for little detailing like that...In fact the new table I just got (and posted about) has cute little claw feet! I didn't take a picture though...bad blogger! I also love stools or ottomans instead of coffee tables, great with kids!

    I LOVE Julie! I've known her for a few years now & just adore everything about her. I must say this collection really spoke to me. We ordered the ottomans I pinned for our store & everyone just went crazy for them! Texans genuinely love a nod to anything equestrian :-)
