Today we are sharing this beautiful hotel wedding in Santa Monica, CA. The garden theme lent well with the environment and gracefully flowed right into the ballroom. Don’t miss all the details on Style Me Pretty today!

Napoleon III Chairs {the process}

It is no secret that I love me a beautiful Napolean III chair! The pictures below were taken months ago when I bought a couple of big hauls of “naps” on a buying trip back east and down south. With the arrival of our containers from Europe on the horizon (holding many more naps and lots of beautiful furniture on them) I thought I would show just why I love these beauties so very much! There are a variety of different shapes and styles originating from the Napoleon III period (late 19th century) all having similar characteristics. I am no expert on these chairs, I just know I love them. I have to admit, I almost love them completely stripped down, more than I do with fabric on them but I realize that is not very functional. I do however have two of them in my house with no fabric on them at all, I just like to look at them that way….their raw beauty is like no other. Take a look below to see how I find them, with their quirky vintage upholstery and horse hair falling out (yes, I said horse hair, it was commonly used as stuffing back in the day…so cool)! The very first thing we do is strip them down! Then, I spend way too much time trying to figure out what fabric looks best with each chair…then I head to my upholsterers with fabric and strict instructions on how I want each and every one to look….good thing he loves me so much, I can get super picky at times, but hey, the details matter!

From well worn flea market finds to the most poised and pretty lounge vignette staples, these Napoleon III chairs have had quite the adventure (& make over too!)

Happy Friday!

Time for a Celebration

We are celebrating 4 very full years of Found today.  CRAZY to read.  CRAZIER to write. Especially since the blog is always written by Jeni.  But today we wanted to surprise her and focus on what she has created in such a short amount of time.  We even had a few of our closest industry pals send us their photos when they were four years old.  How cute is everyone? (And can you identify them all?!  There are some Found faces in there, too.)

When you’re that young, the whole world is in front of you.  We’d like to think that we have a whole lotta world to take over still too!  So here is to another great year and here is to our wonderful, lovely, I’m-sure-she-is-blushing-as-she-reads-this boss, Jeni Maus.  We love you + are proud of all you’ve accomplished.




Lauren, Dean, Jewel, Thomas + the entire Found family


(Thanks to Paige + Kelly, Maria, Natalie, Lindsay, Angel, Monica, Joel, Dean, Trevor, for participating in this!)
