The Windsor Smith Home Collection

Windsor Smith, a young interior designer from California, is hot, hot, hot right now. Today, she expands her dominance as she officially launches her own furniture line, the eponymous Windsor Smith Home Collection. This launching is just the beginning for Windsor as more pieces will be added in a timely manner. Additionally, Kravet will be rolling out Windsor's own fabric designs in 2008. It doesn't get an hotter than this in the design business. Windsor's furniture collection is fun and youthful, yet it takes a cue from classic designs. She credits her love of color from growing up colorlessly in Kansas and describes her furniture as "a new spin on elegant classics."

In this except from Elle Decor magazine, Windsor talks of her inspirations: "I like to create libraries where men with names like Howard, Bing and Spencer sat in cashmere sweaters and contemplated the 13th hole on the Bel-air golf course. I am drawn to a simple but elegant time when the women were so legendary that surnames weren't necessary.... Slim, Babe, Coco...", Smith says as she twists a sterling pen on the palest aqua velvet ribbon that once belonged to the Duchess of Windsor.

The fabric options for her furniture include linens in fun colors like lavender. Domino readers will be familiar with many of the pieces in the collection as they were shown in her own Californian home featured in the August issue. Below are a few of my favorite pieces from the new collection. Note: while I find the pieces very accessible for a vibrant, busy house with lots of children and dogs, be sure to include a major breadwinner in this picture. These pieces do not come cheap!

The Brittany Secretary, $12,000.



Chloe Sofa, while shown in this vibrant pink, the website says it is not available in this fabric. Strange.



Slipcovered wing chair with monogram.


Moroccan inspired ottoman.
Gwen curved arm sofa.
Medici arm chair.

Directoire chair shown in leather.

In Windsor's own home, you can see the Directoire chair, two benches from her line, and the large Brittany secretary.



Another picture from Windsor's house, shows the large double sided slipcovered sofas from her collection. In front is the Moroccan upholstered ottoman.




In a client's beach house, Windsor uses her slipcovered sofa. I love the detail pleating on the edge.


In the kitchen, a gorgeous aqua floor.


Casual living room with gorgeous hand painted wallpaper pieces. Windsor uses the same hand painted wallpaper in her own dining room. Note the painted wood floor, perfect for a beach house.


Dressier living room, with light pink sofas, square, tufted pillows and large, silver mirror.This room shows the collection's curved arm sofa and Medici chair.


Another beach house view, with clever use of striped fabric on ottoman. The pink color pops on the green stripes.

  2. The wing chair is lovely - esp. with the monogram.

  3. I watched the video someone posted of her, and while I liked her things, I couldn't get beyond her being such a "personality". She seemed a little too, too...

  4. Exciting, isn't it Joni? I'm such a fan of hers.

  5. Hi Joni...I just got the email today that she has her web-site up and running. You are speedy. I do like the pictures of some other rooms that she has decorated besides her own home, which I found a little too much. I do like the lighter hand she has taken for her clients. I find it interesting that all the pieces she has for sale on her web-site are merely copies of antique pieces. Nothing terribly original.
    Sorry Windsor. Good informative post as always Joni.

  6. I have to agree with Patricia, although I do like the room with the Moroccan styled ottoman. Oh and my favorite photo was the kitchen with the aqua floor!

  7. Thanks for posting pictures of this new line. The aqua floor is my favorite too!

  8. Aqua floor photo just became my screensaver. I know the painted floor is not a new idea--but she makes it look like it is.

  9. Hello Joni,

  11. Love her styles -- but the prices are way more in line with my "lottery-wishes" LOL!! I really enjoyed her video -- and her ideas for thrift store finds! And those kinds of ideas will appeal to lots of folks! Thanks for the heads-up -- and the great ideas!

    Jan x at Rosemary Cottage on another Heat Advisory day AND a Red Day Smog alert here in Dallas!

  13. Well, I know a lot of you aren't Windsor's biggest fans, but I do like her house myself, a lot. I like the cluttered, overstuffed, cosy, warm look. Her prices are absolutely ridiculous for many of her items. Thanks for all the comments, I LOVE you all!

  16. I hadnot seen an acqu floor in the kitchen before! I liked the moroccon styled ottoman, acqu floor and plats on the slipcover. Thanks I get to see so many interesting images on your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Beautiful pieces!! I also love the aqua floor, and the green & white striped fabric @ the beach house. :) Her designs in general seem to have a very lived in quality-beautiful but accessible and not overly pretentious. *off to check out her website!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I absolutely love what Windsor Smith is doing! I love her house so much and I particularly LOVE her kitchen with the big long white dining table and chairs with the slip covered wing chairs on the ends - GORGEOUS!!! Great post Joni - thanks for the update!

  19. Hi, it's my first time posting on your blog and I'm linking to your blog post on checks with toile since I'm talking about toile on my site; I like Windsor's look. It's simple but then she takes detail from more authentic things to make a room pop (like the Morrocan ottoman). However, I don't see it accessible to children...not mine anyway! Thanks for the pretty pictures.

  20. What is the flooring material in that kitchen? Can you find out??????????

  37. An Ultra Higher Efficiency search that tends to make the Solo-Baric® [url=http://ghromelia.typepad.com/blog/2010/09/canoscan-lide2.html]L7[/url] genuinely a statement item. The cone offers you deeper and stronger bass at greater listening levels with less distortion due to a smaller amount tendency to flex. Simply because, when a woofer cone flexes, there is a reduction of output. This decline of output translates into much less bass.
