I’m a high-low kind of girl – in life, love, and the pursuit of beautiful interiors. I love the thrill of a good thrift shop find and I’m not above trolling discount superstores for the best deals.

But today I want to talk about what really brings all the boys to the yard: the high end pieces that keep a home filled with bargain bin finds staying classy. Enter, The HighBoy – a curated online collection dripping with fine antiques from the farthest reaching corners of the country and the most reputable dealers in the biz.

For most of us, furnishing our homes is a gradual process and most of our furnishings aren’t all that special. But if you invest in one or two super-fantastic statement pieces your home will graduate to a gorgeous, sexy, magazine-worthy space.

Here are some of my favorite picks from The HighBoy right now:

An easy way to class up your grey upholstered sofa from West Elm (because you know you have one) is to flank it with a pair of dope side tables. Extra points for creating your own pair with a skilled mix and match:

Maybe it’s time to swap out that overstuffed behemoth from Bob’s and scoop up a pair of statement armchairs. Make ’em count! Arm chairs are a great way to be bold and bring in a really sculptural shape or killer texture.

With so many folks working from home these days I’m all about upgrading your desk sitch. Or if you have a huge entryway, stop your guests in their tracks with a beautiful desk stacked with coffee table books and interesting objects.

There’s no easier way to make a humongous statement about your coolness than with a fancy pants chandelier and holy moly – The HighBoy is ROCKING IT in the chandelier department.
