DESIGN FIND: Unexpected decor element in Sarasota



An effective way to add a jazzy element to a conventional kitchen breakfast bar is to introduce an unexpected modern feature such as a pair of bar stools like these.

You get both color and sculptural design that plays off against the more traditional decor in the room. You could do the same with a bold piece of art, but then these stools, crated in Italy and distributed by Kartell, are art — functional art.

Called spoon barstools, they are available new online and locally in high-end furniture stores and design galleries. These are gently used and sell for $699 for the pair at Pinch-A-Buck consignment store in Sarasota at 255 N. Lime Ave. 365-9808.

Every day people move to Florida with furniture they end up not being able to use, making this area rich in bargain-priced, quality furniture and home decor items. Consignment, resale and thrift store shopping can yield impressive results in the Sarasota-Manatee area.
