KRIS Likes… The Very Pink of Perfection

The verb “to pink” dates from the 14th century and means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern” – Collins Dictionary

Below are a few items that I think are the very pink of perfection…  Enjoy!

Madeline Weinrib “Pink Ivy” pillow.


Madeline Weinrib “Pink Orléans” cotton area rug.  Available in various sizes and carried by ABC Carpet and Home.

Pair of 1950s pink lacquer end cabinets designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller and sold at Talisman.  The hardware on this piece is simply divine when added to the bright hot pink lacquer! Contact vendor for price.

Chrome chairs hand tufted in hot pink wool sold by Pieces.  I love the half-moon base and delicate curved back on these chairs. $1,400 for 4.

Pink cased glass Murano lamps with lucite bases from the 1960’s.  Sold by Swank Lighting. $2,500 for the pair.

Curvy hot pink chaise lounge with white lacquer legs from Mid Century Antiques. $4,800 one of a kind.

1960’s pink lacquer bamboo trellis writing desk / vanity from Sabina Danenberg Antiques.  Very well priced!  On sale for $800.  I would defiantly use the money you save and spend it on some better hardware. Perhaps crystal knobs or something turquoise and funky depending on the use.


LOVE the hot pink Moroccan chandelier & stunning patterned draperies finished with a pink ribbon trim in this girls bedroom designed by New York designer Amanda Nisbet.
