Three weeks of the Beeline Collection in this fabulous sun-lit Pop Up Shop in NYC - Thank You Bunny Williams

 Bunny pulled back the chairs to show us the craftsmanship
of this beautiful farmhouse table with a twist. 

Summer's almost here -

Interior Designer Bunny William's
Beeline Pop Up Shop

I enjoyed my tour of this beautiful space with Bunny Williams:
Spending time with Bunny,
I soaked up her wealth of knowledge, ideas and insights
as she generously walked me through her temporary space
chock -filled with Beeline goodies and accessories.  
With Amy (@abcddesigns) leading the tweet charge #BunnysBuzz,
we tweeted up a storm to let you all know about this event

Bunny Williams has been one of my very favorite designers for almost twenty years, and she is responsible for taking high refined style and mixing it with patina'd outdoor gardening style.  Bunny brought it all indoors together to create warm, inviting sophisticated spaces like no other designer in the industry.  This aesthetic is now quite popular but when Bunny began her journey, it was something new.  She has brought this specific sensibility to her clients and later to her unique shop Treillage.  I have been shopping at Treillage for over a decade and picked up many one of a kind items for my clients over the years - from teak outdoor furniture to indoor lighting and antique dining tables.  She opened the shop with her husband, well known designer John Rosselli, (John owns a variety of exclusive lighting shops in NYC).  The first Treillage shop is set on a quiet side street on 75th Street in a carriage house of sorts.  You arrive and greeted by a set of large barn-like doors and at once you are transported to a rural European cottage from another era.  There are a cornucopia of warm vignettes that draw you in and make you want to crack open your check book to bring that feeling home.  
Over the years Bunny has evolved and grown her business, and expanded Treillage to another new location which showcases her tabletop wares on the more high profile Lexington Avenue.  Check out this story Florida interior designer and blogger Anne Lubner wrote after visiting NYC when I took her over to Treillage on Lexington Avenue just after it opened in 2009.  At around the same time, Bunny launched her new furniture and accessory line Beeline.  
While chatting with Bunny she shared with me her desire to bring that old world sensibility with individual hand crafted pieces but with affordable price tags, and now with Beeline her vision is realized.  You can pepper in your one of kind pieces with the staples from Beeline.  Bunny showed me how each piece is well made inside and out with quality finishes, painting and craftsmanship.  There is a large collection of mirrors, lamps, furniture and accessories.  For the next three week you can stop into this temporary Pop Up Shop to pick up pieces from the Beeline collection.  Of course Bunny puts it altogether in a way that makes you want to move right in and start "nesting".

Bunny's infamous vignettes are a lovely dance of proportions, color and blance.  She talks about how she likes to balance upholstered furniture with leggy furniture, using various size scales to create interesting rooms.  After years of looking for the perfect end tables in the right 30" height to flank sofas, Bunny said she was committed to providing a variety of tables
 (as seen on either side of this sofa above).
 Bunny loves this 
high back wing chair from her collection - the tufted back is divine 
 Beeline mirrors:  from chinoseries style to contemporary
 Stop into the Beeline Pop Up Shop for a refreshment
 Bunny loves TVs and has created several pieces to accommodate television sets
in a stylish, yet practical manner

The table from the Beeline collection shows an example of the attention to detail
Bunny is the epitome of old world designer with moderne,
forward thinking reach.
Come see for yourself the possibilities
when putting these pieces together in your home.
