Catalog Pick: Buckley Swivel Glider

You should be fully aware that Miles Redd has a collection for Ballard Designs. And within said collection is my dream nursery chair - the Buckley Swivel Glider - a distinguished rocker with a lovely pleated skirt.

And if you'd like to kill some time today, go ham using Ballard's (amazing) customization tool that lets you test drive a variety of fabric/welt combinations. Here are some of mine:

I played it straight and just did the main welt, but using Ballard's tool, you can also customize the seat fabric, the back panel fabric, and the skirt's mind-blowing.

Bless a retailer who dabbles in such customization as it really lets you create design magic without having to hunt down all the fabric + the upholsterer to do it for you. Not to mention that being able to instantly see a rendition of your ideas ranks very very high on the gratification scale.

This might be my favorite thing on the Internet right now.
