This week I stopped by ddc DesignPost, a contemporary European furniture and decor showroom on Madison in midtown.
I’ve written about ddc light fixtures in the past. That sister showroom (more well known for statement lighting) is a quick 3 blocks downtown, and certainly worth the visit. But today I was more interested in checking out the breezy tropical vibe currently beckoning from their 34th street window display.
Swirling blues and greens punctuated with unexpected textures, their showroom style was reminiscent of an upscale, over-water bungalow.
Several outdoor lounge spaces such as this one were featured.
Simple earth tones were brilliantly made exciting by way of playful texture and subtle over sizing.
Lots of shapes and silhouettes here also read 70’s mod to me- but with this effortlessly modern twist of lounging and luxury. This set in particular was meant for a covered space, but I noticed plenty of their displays boasted weather-resistant as well, and were meant to be styled outdoors.
Here’s another setup that stood out- I absolutely loved the idea of a two-toned tabletop.
“Our goal is to provide excellent design, inspiration and ease when furnishing your space,” their team shared.
For me, ease is key when it comes to pieces such as this one. Especially if you struggle with creative home decorating and use of accents, pieces like this sort of take that task off your hands, and can really stand alone without much supplementary design detail.
