Feathers have been popping up on catwalks, in my favorite boutiques, and just about everywhere you turn nowadays. They're the perfect mix of flashy and fun, and I can't help but find inspiration in them. From feathered fashion accessories to Balenciaga's latest runway show, to Blake Lively’s gold and peacock-hued plumed Versace gown from this year’s Met Gala, these beautiful quills are sure to make your imagination take flight.

{H O R I Z O N} Take a Seat: Sofas You Should Know by Eileen Boyd

There's definitely an art to finding the perfect sofa. It's such a personal decision with so much to consider and lots of necessary testing involved. I think clients and people in general worry about choosing a sofa because the choice feels so permanent and important within the space. And, while that is true, I'm a firm believer that if you choose something you love you can never go wrong, and somehow you'll always find a home for it.

Now not all sofas were made to live in the same environment. For today's muse, I wanted to focus on a few of my favorite sitting sofas that usually reside in formal areas designed for sparking great conversation. But, these beauties don't give up comfort in exchange for good looks—They've got it all!
