Decor Accents & the Oslo Duvet Cover

I’m really fond of our Oslo duvet cover set by Echelon that is currently on sale (20% off), so I thought it would be fun to think of some pieces that would look good with it.  The scale and linking pattern of Oslo make it fairly modern looking, so I’d pair it with modern and mid-century modern pieces.

I like rooms with some wood in them. Wood furniture warms things up, as opposed to say the super sleek look of lacquered items.

I think every bedroom needs at least one chair.  I always end up draping things on them.  This is a super cool Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair.

This bedside table combines the modern look of an iron frame with the hand-antiqued patina of the acacia wood drawer. Audrey Nightstand by CB2.

I really like these Design by Conran ball lamps from JC Penney of all places.  Yes, this is the same “Conran” as The Conran Shop!

These look so cool, but are not very practical for bedside lamps, so I think I’d want one as accent lamp.

With wood items, I don’t think it’s necessary at all to have them all the exact same wood finish… looking too “matchy matchy” is so boring.

It’s super-minimalist with lots of wood.  I love the giant rice paper lamp!  I adore this look, but I don’t know if I’d have the discipline to keep things so uncluttered!  What do you think?  You can view the rest of the slides and article, here.
