When we first saw the Silver Lake, LA, home of Nicole Cari, the Senior Marketing Director at Band of Outsiders, we admired the thoughtful mix of antique midcentury furniture with textiles and accessories sourced from some of our favorite LA design resources.

Having taken over the home from previous owners Jed Lind and Jessica de Ruiter, Cari has styled her home (patio and pool included) to accommodate her frequent guests. Her own site, Nicole Cari, details the dinner parties, baby showers, and weddings she both attends and hosts (party-throwing is her side passion). For more of her home, go to Refinery29.

Above: The Jens Chair by Jens Risom in a light Lychee color (shown) or in an orange Tiger Lily upholstery is currently on sale for $935 at Design Within Reach. For vintage options, sleuth sites like 1st Dibs and Midcentury LA.

Above: Cari utilizes the classic 18-inch Tolix Marais Stool as a side table between the two lounge chairs; $180 from Design Within Reach.

Above: For a similar floral rug, The Rug Company offers an array of both traditional and contemporary options (and some in between) like this Pomegranate Gold Rug, $102/square foot.

Above: Room & Board’s Jasper Sofa has a midcentury vibe with tapered legs and narrow arms. Available in eight colors (shown here in Mink) for $1,299.

Above: From designer Maria La Rosa, the woven Square Pillow is $185 from Lost & Found, one of Cari’s favorite design resources in LA.

Above: A similar vintage Danish Midcentury Coffee Table made from teak wood is available at MidcenturyLA for $950.

Above: Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost Chair for Kartell is made from translucent injection-molded polycarbonate and stacks six high; $410 at Design Within Reach.

Above: For something similar to Cari’s antique farmhouse table, West Elm’s Pine Expandable Dining Table is made from FSC-certified reclaimed pine with a sun-dried wheat finish; seats six to 10 people for $1,299.
