Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought we would shed some light on some of the most delightful shades of pink happening in furniture, product and interior designs.
To some, the pink ribbonsymbolizes hope. Seen throughout the world, the ribbon and the color pink have come to represent support for those battling or who have battled breast cancer as well as raise awareness of the disease. Breast Cancer awareness has a deep place in my heart as my grandmother, Sara to most, Memaw to us, is a survivor. A true warrior of sorts.
To get the word out many companies & designers have come together to create some really fabulous furniture and product designs…
1stthings First… Back a few months ago when I was browsing through a Robb and Stucky (a local furniture store) for a client, I ran into the most delightful little chair. I was completely smitten by its form and color.
Meet the Alyce Chair (co created by Robb and Stucky and Henredeon)…
Love it? Well they have a beautifully designed Buffet to match…
The collection was co created by Robb and Stucky and Henredon which includes the chair, a buffet, bar stools and a dining table. ADORABLE. For details about the collection, visit www.furnitureforthecure.org. The collections are truly a symbol of love and support!

I think I’m going to re-paint my bathroom a light pink now. I just painted it a light blue a couple months ago and last night I was thinking of re-doing it. Thanks for the inspiration. And I’m ordering those pink tools today. 🙂 Whenever I see anything that donates money to breast cancer I have to purchase it even if I don’t need it.
