"I adore the sculptural quality of a ladder in a living room or library. It gives a sense of journey and brings your eye up…"
"Such a warm and inviting color. Brings immediate playful personality with a formal Mexican style. I am eyeing this one myself for my living room!"
"I always use one English piece in every room. This one has great scale and a beautiful patina that could be enhanced by an upholstered piece."
"I love this splash of color and its rustic character. I would use this to calm down a more formal, put-together room."
