We're excited to introduce the newest addition to our Carlyle Collection, the Carlyle End Table! Available in a warm grey and a rich ebony, this sleek end table features modern brass hardware and clean lines. A sliding drawer and lower shelf offer plenty of storage.
We can't keep our eyes off of this bright, airy space designed by Alaina Kaczmarski, co-founder of The Everygirl and soon-to-be Mom. Alaina selected our Colette Desk to use in her master bedroom after converting her home office to a nursery in preparation for the arrival of her little one.
"I knew it was the perfect design and size for the space," Alaina said of the desk. "And the raw wood is just too good..."
Alaina took inspiration from Erica Barry's writing desk in Something's Gotta Give, and positioned the desk in front of the bay windows in the master bedroom of her gorgeous Chicago home.
Head over the Alaina's personal blog, Elizabeth Street Post, for the full story and more photos of the space!
P.S. - The Colette Desk is currently sold out but will be back in stock next month!
When Ashley Cooper began designing a nursery in preparation for the arrival of her fourth child, she wanted to create a modern, sophisticated space. The talented designer chose to incorporate contrasting dark and light elements for a look that's refined yet whimsical enough for a nursery.
Ashley selected two of our Carlyle Campaign Dressers for storage along with other mostly white, neutral furniture pieces that pop against a bold focal wall.
"The whole nursery design came together even better than I had hoped and will easily be able to transition with him as he grows," said Ashley.

We are pleased to introduce the Chloé Collection, a tailored and timeless group of transitional pieces that work well in every interior. Warm burl wood veneers, hand applied gold leaf, and matte black metal finishes are at the center of this collection’s effortless grace. The Chloé Collection was inspired by the uncomplicated yet elegant style of French fashion and embraces the “less is more” principle of design.
We spoke with Lisa Rickert, Ave Home's founder and creative director, about her vision for the collection. “I wanted to create a collection with more transitional pieces to allow our clients to intermix a variety of styles," said Lisa. "The Chloé Collection is classic, yet contemporary and can really tie a room together."
Jacquelyn Clark of Lark & Linen has spent the last year renovating her Toronto home. She wowed us a few months ago with her office reveal featuring our Colette Desk. Now, she's revealed her dining room makeover, which once again includes a piece from our AVE Raw line. The serene space, which features our Charlotte Pedestal Table, is warm and inviting - the perfect place to entertain. We can't wait to see what Jacquelyn does next! Head over to Lark & Linen to read all about the project.
Note: The Charlotte Pedestal Table and Colette Desk are currently sold out and will be back in stock later this Fall. Sign up for our newsletter below to receive an update when they are available.
TRADITIONAL HOME: WAVES OF GRAIN
We were honored to be featured in the September issue of Traditional Home. The "Waves of Grain" editorial details the latest trend of natural wood furniture, and includes our Colette Desk in the selection.
Part of our AVE Raw line, the desk comes unfinished, and while we love the way it looks in the raw, it can also be painted or stained for a custom look.

Milieu: THE GOODS
One of our favorite design mags, Milieu, was kind enough to include one of our newest pieces, the Chloé Burl Console, in their round up of what's new in the world of design. The Chloé Collection will be officially launching mid-October, so stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for details on each piece from this collection!
We were also pleased to see our Anders End Table featured in the fabulous home of Chris Barrett. Check out Milieu's fall issue to see the twelve page spread on the Los Angeles designer's mid-century, California bungalow.
Okl: WORKING WOMEN WEDNESDAY
Our founder and creative director, Lisa Rickert, sat down with One Kings Lane for their Working Women Wednesday column. In the interview Lisa offers a glimpse into her day to day life and shares some of the lessons she's learned throughout her career.
Read the full interview for Lisa's take on business and design, the importance of hard work and finding balance, and her goals for Ave Home.
We're swooning over the latest project by Kristin of Hunted Interior, who re-designed the second bedroom in her home to create a sophisticated yet fun space for her little girl. Because the room doesn't have a closet, Kristin designed an open closet space using our Campaign Dressers for storage and lucite rods for hanging. "I have dealt with our lack of closet space multiple ways over the years. This however, might be my favorite solution yet!" Kristin said of the space. The room also features a custom loft bed with adorable floral side panels and a cozy space below for reading and video games.
Back by popular demand, we're excited to bring you the Carlyle Campaign Dresser. Formerly available unfinished, the new Carlyle Dresser comes with a white satin finish (no painting required) and improved hardware.
This petite dresser offers a modern take on the classic campaign style and works perfectly as a nightstand or end table. Keep scrolling for a roundup of some of our favorite projects using this piece and shop the rest of the Carlyle Collection.
Over the weekend one of our favorite bloggers, Emily Henderson, revealed one of her latest projects, a Parisian inspired suite in a Sotheby's owned, Pasadena mansion.
The Art Deco style project features the Colette Desk from our AVE Raw line, which Emily and her team painted a dark grey. The traditional desk is juxtaposed with a more modern chair and styled simply with a tea tray, lamp and accessories.
'Neutral with an edge. European but modern. Masculine but with romance.' This is the feel Emily wanted for her dream Parisian hotel suite, and she hit all the notes perfectly!
Head over to her blog for the full story and more photos of the project.
