Have you heard of Chairish?
First of all, I love their tagline ... Buy. Sell. Adore.
Kind of a designophile's Craigslist, Chairish is an online marketplace for vintage and "pre-loved" furniture and home décor. UNLIKE Craigslist, you can easily peruse items by photograph and even collections such as "Curator's Picks," "Hotties Under $100" or "Cool Combo: Oxblood and Cobalt."
Anyway, Chairish recently contacted me asking if I'd like to participate, along with some other bloggers, in a project to design the perfect home bar using barstools from Chairish. Of course I jumped at the chance! They sent me an assortment of barstools to choose from and I selected these leather beauties. (You can shop their whole collection by clicking here.)
My idea was to style a cozy bar area you'd perhaps find in a home library ... a place to sit with an after dinner cocktail surrounded by books and cozy but glamorous finishes like grasscloth wallpaper, a soft shag rug and a giant celestial map.
Lots of people are forgoing living rooms these days in favor of a space they will use more often. The addition of a sleek bar and lots of bookshelves can turn a former living room into a home library that is functional and fun!
Here is my design board:
In creating my design board, I was able to find a ton of other unique and fun items on Chairish for my room. Check out that killer chandelier and the sconces made of bone! I love the cute little bar cart, and I couldn't believe all of the cool vintage barware I found to accessorize it.
I've listed sources for everything below:

What do you think? Do you have a space in your home we could transform into a sexy home library? Contact me ... I'd love to help ... and I know Chairish would too!
