own a piece of history | monday giveaway!

Today’s giveaway is from an awesome design shop I featured not too long ago (here) and it’s going to be a part of TV history!

It’s the Siren chair, inspired by the mid-century modern Swan chair by Arne Jacobsen.  This chair will be featured on an upcoming episode of HGTV’s “High-Low Project” this fall and the winner will receive the exact chair used in the filming!  How cool is that?

To qualify for the giveaway, you must: Follow Stylish Furniture and Decor blog and like them on Facebook. Then, write a comment on this post below on how YOU would use this chair!

The winner will be announced on June 1st so all entries must be made before May 31st!  Note: The winner will receive the chair via FedEx or UPS.  The ship-to address for the chair must be in the continental US.  There is no charge for shipping.

Oh, and don’t forget about the code CITYC for 10% off your purchase in their shop before it expires on 5/31/12!   Good luck!

UPDATE:  Congratulations to the winner, Anne D!


stop for a sip in soho | oficina latina

Join me for a tour through one of my favorite SoHo spots – Oficina Latina on Prince Street.  Not only do they have a superb and unique selection of spirits and super fresh food, but the atmosphere is, simply put, fantastic.  There isn’t much better on a sunny, Saturday afternoon than relaxing in the breeze of their open front doors and sipping a glass of their (excellent) Malbec.  If you’re a Tequila fan, try the Avocado Cilantro Margarita!

I love a good design concept, and this bar is not lacking in one.  Inspired by the Pan-American highway that ran from Monterey, Mexico all the way down to Argentina, Oficina Latina “recreates the stops along [it].  [Their] menu and cocktails reflect the rich ingredients of these exotic destinations.”

I thought it was about time I start sharing more New York-specific scoutings.  Don’t worry, many more to come.  Enjoy!
