Dare to transform your home with these bold, beautiful pieces chosen by Mandy Drew, founder of Tampa-based Mandy Drew Designs.
The large iron Caroline Coffee Table is rich with curves, angles and a slightly patinaed, antique brass finish. “I love this table for a family room, great room or living room,” Drew exclaims. “I often pair two side-by-side for a larger room, but one also can be used solo for a statement. It’s sleek and simple, but also has glam and modern vibes.”
Elegantly draped cream-stone leather strips create layers of movement and texture in the Large Whisper Chandelier, made in South Africa. Its ambient light exudes a soft glow to set a relaxing mood. “I love this chandelier not only because it’s unique, but it’s handmade,” Drew shares. “It can go in a very elevated home, simple space or commercial space.”
Under The Sea
Elements of the ocean inspired the blackened steel metal base of the Atlantis Dining Table, topped with a lightly distressed, oak veneered surface. “This table adds a wow factor to any space,” Drew says. “It can be used in a dining room, larger breakfast nook or foyer.”
Designed by Ralph Lauren, the Hailee Medium Sculpted Chandelier comes in natural brass and white plaster, adorned with chunky crystals cascading at varied lengths. “This is the ‘wow’ factor anyone needs for a foyer or higher ceiling dining room,” Drew declares. “It makes the space so special.”
Natural & Neutral
Cast from a hand-carved mold with white reeded stonecast texture and a fiberglass body, the Calanova In/Outdoor Coffee Table features an inlaid top made of natural, white agate stone. “I love this table because it can be used indoor or outdoor,” Drew says. “It can also be used by itself or nested with the smaller version.”
The Kanan Lounge Chair blends smoothed, natural rattan with sleek architectural forms, inspired by the art deco heritage of Los Angeles. “It is so versatile and can be customizable with any fabric of your choice, giving the option to go subtle or to make a statement,” Drew notes. “The woodwork and design make this chair so special for any space.”
