This, folks, is country style done right. In one corner we have an elegant upholstered armchair, graceful draperies and an Oriental rug; in the other, a tree-twig chandelier, a firewood barrel and a wagon wheel propped on the mantel. The rustic accents dress the space down, but its design chops are unmistakable.
A wagon wheel peeks from the top of the stair landing in this home. It harmonizes nicely with the wood surfaces and distressed accents and adds a little levity to the eclectic, brightly colored setting.
This primitive wagon wheel lacks the typical spokes and rim, and as a result it takes on a completely new personality in this Asian-style space. Its circle-within-a-circle design whispers of serenity and flow; its placement on a stand elevates it to art status.
Wagon wheel–back benches offer a down-home welcome that suits these Texas digs.
An overscale wheel-inspired light fixture looms over this living area. Its sheer size, coupled with a deep red finish, gives it flair.
Perched alongside a pair of playful metal horse sculptures, wagon wheels give this garden a Wild West mien that escapes clichés.
Wagon wheel chandeliers have been on the scene for some time, but this two-tier version — complete with lantern-style shades — looks especially chic. It brings down the high ceiling in this great room and enhances the Western sensibility of a Colorado mountain home.
