Even as A Life Designed explores Europe recharging our creative batteries, things are poppin’ in our online shop!

This morning we bid a long distance farewell from the Czech Republic to our beautiful pair of Pottery Barn leather Trevor chairs, sold last night through the ALD online store.

If you were thinking of acquiring these stunning chairs for your living space but waited too long, wipe those tears away! We are always on the lookout for unique pieces of industrial/vintage and mid-century modern furniture to add to our online shop. Check back often, you never know what you’ll find!
