Purple chair - Where can the purple chair be purchased?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

His sweet Chihuahua mutt, Beatrice Arthur, is a natural beauty who loves posing for the camera. Dabito sometimes jokes that she was a model in her past life, and I don't doubt him one bit.
Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Call: Looking for Dogs in Design
Don't wait. Look, your pet is being uber cute right now. Go get your camera and snap a pic. Upload your favorite photo to the comments section below and tell us a little about him/her.
You can check out more of Dabito's work on his blog, Old Brand New. I think a gratuitous shot of Dabito's chihuahua, Beatrice Arthur, is the best way to wrap up this ideabook!

This clever L.A.-based blogger, Dabito, has amassed and curated an impressive collection of thrifted vintage treasures. These pieces are arranged throughout his home in a way that makes it look easy (it's not).
Use old things in fresh ways. Vintage suitcases, for instance, can be stacked and used as a side table, and filled with off-season clothing to boot. Trunks make great coffee tables, and a spare chair can stand in for a bedside table. Look around at what you already own and see if you can't think of a new way to spin some of your old stuff.
They just don't make suitcases like they used to. They may be lighter and easier now, but they aren't as great looking. If you have a few old clunkers lying around, consider stacking them for a side table.Hint: Spray paint them first if they are ugly, mismatched or dirty. You can screw them together to prevent toppling with a few small bolts and wing nuts.
Tiffany Carboni added this to How to Dip Your Toe Into Retro
Suitcases. Old hard-case luggage makes for unexpected tables. Stack varying sizes together for a curio display, or add a glass top to create a durable end table.More ways with vintage suitcases
Where to skimp. If you need to cut costs, do it with accessories: Look for mirrors, pillows and lamps at places like Ikea, Target, T.J.Maxx and Marshall's. The dirty little secret of decorating is that if you mix in a few cheap things among the more expensive items, no one will notice.

They just don't make suitcases like they used to. They may be lighter and easier now, but they aren't as great looking. If you have a few old clunkers lying around, consider stacking them for a side table. Hint: Spray paint them first if they are ugly, mismatched or dirty. You can screw them together to prevent toppling with a few small bolts and wing nuts.
