Milanese artist and textile designer Lisa Corti has no fear of green. For her "mama bear" chair she selected pretty grass green as the background for this splashy pink cabbage rose print. Accentuating the leaves with a touch of turquoise/teal and placing the chair on the aubergine-and-mustard-striped floor is pure color genius.
I love woven French café chairs, in any color! But this tableau in St. Rémy couldn’t be any more green! It certainly makes me want to add a splash of red — a glass or two of a great burgundy would add just the right accent!
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom is a sound I associate with red sports cars. But, I think this low-slung bright green quasi-Batmobile is the 2012 answer to red, and deserves a really loud ZOOM!
My favorite green is chartreuse and my favorite "accessorations" are dishes… so, these divine melamine plates from Milan are being air-freighted to New York as I write! I already have the French pressed glasses, but I must — must!— get the three patterns of Sabre flatware to complete the look.
Chic designer Tricia Guild is always ahead of the curve. Her new Designers Guild shop on Marylebone High Street in London is already painted this fabulous shade of pea green. Or will it now be know as Tricia Guild Green?
Just how green can green go? Portuguese design company Doïz made this vivid green injected plastic modular bookcase that screams the shade. The movable units and brilliant color would make it a great addition to a child's playroom.
This sleek chartreuse dish rack from English design company Black + Blum is spectacular! It's a must for every trendsetter if "good design and great color" is your mantra.
I've looked at soooo much green, and this stack of chairs still stands out! They're definitely classics, in a complementary combination of greens.
I love the patina of aged metal as it oxidizes, and I think this green gate is just stunning. It may be a bit much for my house in East Hampton, but it certainly looks fabulous in front of this chateau in the South of France!
At one stop, I found a cacophony of green that had real greenery. Nature creates the most beautiful green palette, but this chic green furniture gives it an extra boost!
Finally, enough about home "accessorations!" Green is a chic trend everywhere I look! My feet are screaming to own these Charlotte Olympia Verity green felt shoes with the sparkling red lips. Divine! After all my travels, I think I deserve them!
