Design Inspiration is All Around You


When looking for color and material direction for your living space, don’t just rely on home magazines for ideas. Look around… Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely places.

Take for instance this amazing Cafe Racer bike. Some may simply see a cool looking motorcycle, (and it certainly is that.) I look at it and see a complete color and material scheme for a room. Wall colors, leather furniture and wood and metal accents. Perfection.

Eyes wide open everyone!

SOLD! – Leather Chesterfield Chair


Now you see it… Now you don’t! Our leather Chesterfield club chair flies out the door and we’re not the least bit surprised.

You know the only thing we love more than the wonderful customers of A Life Designed?… Our wonderful REPEAT customers! Over the past year and a half, we have had the distinct pleasure of developing valued, repeat client relationships and providing multiple pieces to these discerning buyers. Such is the case with the sale of our beautiful Chesterfield leather club chair.

Added only yesterday to our store, it didn’t take long for the design savvy new owner to snatch this piece up and add it to his growing collection of furnishings discovered and purchased through ALD. What can we say? Some people just have an eye for quality. We like that!

Congrats on your newest addition sir and enjoy it… We know you will.
