ModernGear Home: James Perse Furniture

Oh, great. I have a major love affair with James Perse clothing...and now there is a James Perse Furniture collection? That's it...it's too much...I just can't take it!!

Well okay, okay, I can. Here are my favourite pieces - for wardrobe and for home. I am all UP into James Perse. (Did I really just say that?)

Perse for summer (for me) would have been all about his maxi dresses (and how I hope this is a trend that will continue next summer), like the JAMES PERSE WOMEN Olympic Sulphur RACERBACK LONG DRESS, $155

And even the shorter styles, too, like the JAMES PERSE WOMEN Charcoal CAP SLEEVE A-LINE DRESS, $155

For fall, I really like the working of his super-soft cotton and fleece into a few different items. LOVE the JAMES PERSE WOMEN Black FLEECE HOODED A-LINE DRESS, $195

And wouldn't this look amazing with skinny jeans and black leather boots, with a soft black scarf? JAMES PERSE WOMEN Charcoal BIAS CUT DRAPED V-NECK Blouses, $135

It's really pouring outside and fall is HERE, and I'd love to be sitting in my chilly office wrapped in the JAMES PERSE WOMEN Black OPEN DRAPE CARDIGAN Blouses, $155 or...

...the JAMES PERSE WOMEN Night Owl HOODED FLEECE JACKET Sweaters, $225

Even the JAMES PERSE WOMEN Olympic FLEECE SWEATSHIRT doesn't look like a slovenly sweathshirt of my university years. ($110)

And what collection of favourites would be complete without cashmere?! JAMES PERSE WOMEN Heather Grey CASHMERE BLEND CARDIGAN Sweaters, $225

I also really like James Perse for men - here are just a few of my faves: JAMES PERSE MEN Black LIGHTWEIGHT FLEECE SWEATSHIRT, $135

JAMES PERSE MEN Olympic Sulphur LOUNGE LONG SLEEVE CREW, $50

So when I tried to imagine what James Perse furniture would look like, I wondered, how would it translate from his wearable collections? I have found a few pieces that I think look just as comfortable and easy to incorporate as his clothing.

It may be raining, but the forecast is for sun tomorrow. I'd love to curl up in a ray of sunshine on either the new Carbon Chaise from the Malibu outdoor Collection, or the Colony Chair.

For inside the home, The Nor Cal Collection's Sonoma Chair and Sofa feature fabric that is a cotton and linen blend. They wouldn't last a day around my dog, but my goodness - how comfortable and chic would that one day feel?!
There's even more - a desk, tables, and the Los Angeles collection that can be used outdoors (with Yellow Balau wood) or indoors (featuring Rough Sawn White Oak). Suffice it to say, it's all pretty fabulous. See for yourself at JamesPerse.com.
