Arren Williams is the name, and I'm a stylist, editor and trend reporter. You'll catch my work regularly popping up in print in the likes of the National Post, House & Home and elsewhere. I'm also a guest expert on Citytv's CityLine, and you can occasionally find me on HGTV as well as on ABC 7 News in Chicago.

To keep things fun I've tapped a couple of friends - Julia Black and Jenn Hannotte - to contribute their views on design too. Enjoy!

Perforated in orange

The talk of Tolix-esque chairs on the last post had me digging around and jonesing for the originals, first designed by Xavier Pauchard in 1934. Tolix are sold in North America by DWR as the Marais line of chairs and stools, but if you want everything - and I mean everything - that Tolix makes then you have to check in with Melissa Edelman Antiquaire. Yep, the folks at MEA can get their hands on the fab perforated collection (a lovely twist on the Tolix originals, like the orange stools below), as well as the just launched kid's line (that's the kid's Mouette Armchair below), both of which were designed by Normal Studio. And yep, MEA can hook you up with around 200 custom colour choices as well as a bunch of lovely industrial feeling metal finishes too.

I liked the "in the style of" chairs in the last post, but I am lovin' these!

Thanks for this. I'm contemplating these for my dining room table right now and I'm happy to find out there are more options than what DWR offers.
