I really love a room that looks well travelled. Looks like it has a story. An eclectic mix of patterns, well used pieces, photos, art, plants, and put-your-feet-up furniture.
I came across Bokja furniture in a feature on apartmenttherapy.com...what cool stuff.
They take classic chairs and upholster them with awesome Moroccan, Indian, bohemian — ish fabrics.
p.s. i realize to that these are pretty feminine and you'd be hard press to get a guy to buy this..but I'm single so I Love it ;)
I also really like Gaiam or Mad Mats outdoor/indoor rugs which are made out of recycled cans!
