i know this post could cause a major migration to sunny california, but you must trust me when i tell you we photographed my friend, artist kim schoen’s home it was during a much-needed break in some winter rainstorms that have been keeping all us wimpy Angelenos tucked cozily inside. so it was such a welcome pleasure to see the sun come out and to share with you kim’s terrace makeover, overlooking the beautiful san gabriel mountains and angeles national forest. we partnered with Article to complete kim’s newly tiled outdoor space, designed by her partner, architect marc frohn.

kim chose article’s gorgeous Oscuro Dining Table in a black finish with brass legs and paired it with the Sala Graphite Dining Chairs which are great-looking but also incredibly comfortable. the black furniture contrasts so perfectly with the pale green patio tiles and california landscape. i know it’s still chilly in most parts of the country and most certainly in canada, where Article is based, but hey — we’re almost through winter and spring will be here before you know it, so it’s the perfect time to be giving your outdoor space a little love. In addition to their modern and Scandinavian designs meant for inside, Article has tons of outdoor furniture that have got a bohemian, mid-century flair. Article also carries all kinds of beautifully designed modern furniture for the inside of your home, too — from sofas to beds, made with outstanding attention to detail, and at very fair prices. and, they’re lovely people to work with, so if you’re looking to update your space i would highly recommend having a peek at their lovely collections. i have their outdoor chairs in my backyard, too and love them!

  1. Lovely… and, yes, it does make me want to move to California, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.. Old and Gray, trapped in snowy New Hampshire weighed down with too much stuff that won’t fit in my car!
