Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Loveliness

Always fun to see what the talented Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams design duo is up to. I have a yellow settee by them in my formal living room which I have had for nine years and can’t see myself ever parting with. Comfort is the key word for the company. They have been driving that design concept successfully for some 20 years.

I have a serious crush on this beautiful leather/steel coffee table. I think it is absolutely stunning.

GW’s classic Chesterfield sofa. Comes in many colors.

This elegant lamp has my name on it!

So, imagine how happy I was to receive a personal invitation to a fun Champagne mingling event at GW’s flagship store in Washington, DC with presentations of elegant and chic tabletop decor (I could use some help in that department) from none other than my close friend Manvi of the stylish blog Mochatini. (I told her it was held  in the wrong WA — or I would have been over in a heartbeat.). She asked for some “hand holding”, which she does not exactly need. The girl is a style rock star and she can hold her own. I am very proud of her. She is co-sharing this event with the the creative LaFabulousVida. I am sure it will be a smashing event!

The event is taking place on Wednesday June 29th. If you are in the area, don’t miss this evening. You will be rubbing shoulders with a lot of  design happy people and will learn many new design tricks. I have heard they are also going to offer some really wonderful goodie bags. I mean really nice. Promise to say hello to Manvi from me if you do attend.

Go here to learn more and to register.

Hugs to everyone!

    Hi Mon
    Just back from Italy yesterday. It was so fun but I am exhausted. I am running my 25 year college reunion this weekend. The timing couldn’t be worse. But plugging away. How is your Mom? I hope your trip went well. Big hugs, Gina

    Love that top room!!! Also wished the event was in WA :)

  • Livelikeyou says:

    Glad you’re not flying in and I would miss you!!! Love Mitchell and Gold just wish they had a better way at working with designers…guess they don’t need the business. If they did I would use their products all the time!! I’m being really good 3-4 hours of work MAX!! Been doing endless gardening instructed by my mother…this yard is a mess!!

  • love their work, Mon! the top room is beyond wonderful and i’m in love with the Chesterfield sofa. virtual hugs to you

  • Too bad this is on the other side of the country for us. Otherwise, I’d be right there with you at the event!

    P.S. Sorry to hear everyone is sick at your house. Yikes! Hope they are better soon! xo

  • Mon, you are such a good friend. I wish you could attend and hold my hand in person. I would love to do one in the other washington sometime. Hope your visit to see your friend goes well and give her my best.
    Thanks for your support and friendship. love you
    ps: LafabulousVida is one-half me :-)

  • just read your lovely comment, Mon! love you too

    Yes this duet is fantastic and I love their look. It is a dream to one day own the perfect Chesterfield! *sigh* I nearly got my mittens on one through ‘Blocket’ (can you believe..!) but I had to abandon the plan as I had no way to verify the authenticity. They looked the real deal though.. Mamma mia!

    I too got the invitation from sweet Manvi. She’s a darling isn’t she. How fun wouldn’t it have been to be there for her and to see all the goodness. She’s such an inspiration. We’ll just have to fly her over to your Washington when I come to visit you (yes it will happen!) so we can get a table decor crash course! :)

    Love and leave you for now.
    Svarar pa ditt email i kvall eller under helgen. Sista kartongerna nu. Vill inte lamna detta underbara land.. Cold feet! Satt pa klipporna och tittade pa valarna som simmar forbi i gar.. Solen stralar himmlen ar bla.. Suck och ston, men hej och ha det ar bara att kampa vidare. Puss hej min skatt.
    Rattorna i sina sma askar!! UNDERBARA!! Skrattade gott! :)

    xx sis

  • What a fabulous look. Love it, love it. I’m sure this will be lot’s of fun. Have a great weekend. Mona

  • I love their work – so timeless and yet also so stylish! I’d love to have that lamp – it would look great in so many spaces!

  • mon, I have yearned after a piece from Gold/Williams. Everything is wonderful, but I especially love the upholstered pieces, like your settee. won’t manvi’s event be stunning…?

    still having problems commenting on your site from my desktop – that is why I have been absent for a while. My laptop allows me to comment, how crazy is that? Plus blogger is shutting me out of commenting on certain blogs and it’s frustrating!

    hope you and the kids are well! happy summer! love, donna

  • I love love MB- my sofa is from them and I adore it. Wish I could go to this event- sounds so fun!!

  • How wonderful, and just two days away now! I am certain Manvi can hardly stand the excitement… too bad you are unable to attend (me too) but I cannot wait to see pictures from the event — I just know it will go well for her. She has such a creative eye :)
