Pink and White

Aerin Lauder

 Aerin instagrammed about this wicker clutch which is quite chic, but I am dazzled by the pink scallop seashell and seahorse metal garden chairs original to the Estee Lauder Palm Beach estate. I'd love to know more about them. Note that the white cushions are piped in the same soft pink. I decided to be fearless and ordered white cushions for my new lanai furniture. The look is so fresh. No guts no glory.

I Googled them and they are cast aluminum Molla from the 1950s. They are apparently quite collectible and very pricey on 1st dibs and Chairish.

The tea cart is darling.

  1. Swoon! Love the chairs! So gorgeous!

  2. Beautiful chairs! Love the color.

    1. And those white piped cushions with the pink. So pretty.

  3. They are certainly beautiful. I happen to love painted outdoor metal furniture, jardinieres, and wire work, and have a collection of antique and vintage pieces, but nothing as fancy as these Molla ones. (At least not yet!)
