VT Home: Cut To The Chaise


In 2015, VT is pleased to announce our entry into home. Our motto has always been image, identity, clarity, and defining your style type gives you a place to begin. Once you have reached that clarity, it is a natural evolution to translate that into your environment as an expression of your authentic self.
Designing your home based on your style type (or at least infusing the elements) allows you to create the perfect space that represents the best version of you. Join us each week as we share our point of view on the incredible world of interior design, applying our principles and philosophies to everything from art and architecture to current trends and designers.

I love the chaise because it is not only functional and comfortable, but also incredibly sculptural and can be the perfect addition to a large room or nook in your home. Early renditions of the chaise date back to the 18th century Rococo era and were more heavily embellished than these versions I am going to share with you.

The form represents a lifestyle of leisure and opulence and it is interesting to trace how our idea of leisure has evolved over the past three hundred years. Now get ready to be inspired by some of my favorite pieces by clicking through the images below.

You can find most of these beautiful pieces for purchase on 1st Dibs.
