If you’ve been following my Ultimate Wish List posts, you know that these are things I have no room or need for but must ultimately have one day. Item 5 on the list is the Finn Juhl Poet (or Poeten) sofa. This icon of Danish modern furniture was designed back in 1941 for Finn Juhl’s own home:
and I just love its slightly odd shape and those legs.
Remember it in Vanessa Bruno’s apartment:
Yup, still loving that apartment.
And the beauty of the Poet is it comes in so many different colors and color combinations.
I don’t know how I would ever choose but I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Ultimate Wish List post. Item number 4 on my list is the iconic Potence Lamp by Jean Prouvé. The design is quite genius. It pivots 180 degrees, takes up no floor space and has a reach of 7 feet. It’s also really versatile as you can see from these rooms:
It’s industrial but also really elegant and could work in so many different spaces. I’m picturing it in a Parisian apartment with a lot of ornate architectural details….. but then again, that’s where I picture everything, isn’t it?

If you’re new to my Ultimate Wish List series, it’s where I catalog all those big ticket items that I’ve loved forever that I know I want one day. Earlier Ultimate Wish List items can be found here and here.
I’ve blogged about deGournay wallpaper before and how I didn’t know how I would ever choose a pattern from all the choices. Then last week, I opened up the new Elle Decor and there it was:
right in the table of contents, before I even got to the features. After I stopped hyperventilating, I went straight to the article and I was so happy to see another shot of the space:
It’s a very traditional, very deGournay pattern but the two-tone feels fresh to me. I also love that the two tones happen to be blue and gold.
Ignoring the walllpaper for just a moment, how much do you love that gold light fixture, those chairs and the massive mirror? I’m dying over here. It’s just all too good.
