Black and White Three for E

Whoa... that week flew by. My little one visited with his grandparents, so we used the time for some home projects (painting and updating his room) and for some fun (hiking and dates). I do want to post two more black and white inspiration boards for my sister and niece, though, so here's the next one. It's based on this simple, stylish room below. The sling chair and the Componibili storage unit really caught my eye...
While I think the chair is amazing, I have no idea where to find one just like it. If you do, let me know. So, the Paulistano chair, which I also love, is my (pricey!) substitute. Perhaps the price renders it inappropriate for the dorm, but seriously when I told my husband a couple of years ago that I liked it, he said, "It looks like it belongs in a dorm." Right? (Update: Monika helped me find many a Butterfly chair, and the canvas ones are perfect for a dorm room. Thank you so much, Monika! See images of just two options at the end of this post) I like the pom pom blanket from West Elm for some texture similar to the cottonballish blanket in the inspiration photo, and I happened to be in Room and Board earlier today and loved their quilted bedding collection, so I've chosen that, too. Again, there's a little bit of sailing in the sweet boat from Tweet by Willow Baus on etsy.
Find my choices here: it wasn't me pillow, Marimekko Unikko pillow, Paulistano chair in white cotton (or purchase the frame here and a pattern to make your own cover here - much more affordable), West Elm desk boxes, West Elm kite kilim rug, Componibili storage unit, sailboat (this one is not available now, but I believe she will make similar), vintage pencil sharpener from bouquet on etsy, West Elm pom pom blanket, micro Tolomeo table lamp, xoxo pillow, quilted bedding from Room and Board, and Hable Construction's toiletry bag.
I'm planning one more board in the next day or two, so I hope you come look for it!
And here are two butterfly chair options, from Urban Outfitters and from Classic and Modern, which will use virtually any leather you'd like...

Once again, the inspiration image is from the beautiful soup.

Hi dear, you are spoiling your niece!

I don't know where to find a chair just like that but it is very similar to the classic butterfly chair. You might want to google or read more here:

I have a Tolemeo lamp myself (but floor lamp) and I absolutely love it. Such a classic.
