All is Swell at C. Bell

Last Saturday, my husband and I drove to Palm Beach for a day of delicious food, shopping, sunshine and ocean breaze.  I am truly blessed with the best husband in the world... he was so patient to indulge me in my shopping spree! Click here to read more about our trip. The antiques and furniture shops in Palm Beach are beyond incredible. You never know what treasures you will find! One shop not to be missed is C. Bell.

C. Bell is chock-full of quintessential Palm Beach Chic contemporary, custom, and 20th century pieces. I truly could have spent all day drooling over all of the eye candy. Let's take a look inside!


Christine Bell, owner of C. Bell

This white Italian ceramic elephant greeted us as the front door. He is available for sale here.

I love this elephant table in wicker too! 

I love every single detail in this vignette, especially the pagoda mirror and turquoise foo dogs.


How amazing is that HUGE painting? And I love the vintage daisy lamp to the left.


I love this restored mid century chair, one of a pair.

How charming is this lacquered vintage desk?

Vintage crimson dragons!

This contemporary, classic Chippendale chair is customizable.
These coral sconces come in customizable colors.

Christine named this lacquered coffee table the "Carleton Table" after design icon Carleton Varney, who I apparently just missed! Mr. Varney is also a fan of C. Bell!

I LOVE these green tole palm frond lamps!

The vintage mirrored bar in the corner is AMAZING!!
A perfectly Palm Beach Chic palm tree floor lamp!

These contemporary Frances Elkins style loop chairs are very popular with interior decorators. And they come in custom colors.

Lovely Palm Beach Chic loveliness! How adorable is that white lion?

Vintage chairs waiting to be recovered in chic turquoise...

So unique... tassel lamps! Ivory porcelain with silk tassel overlay.

This vintage pink kitty is the cat's meow!

I am in love with these vintage opalescent shell lamps!

This vintage mirror is lacquered in Benjamin Moore's Bermuda Pink.
Vintage French sconces..
C. Bell also sells some pretty amazing mirrored furniture.

Pink, black, white and a touch of Chinoiserie... yes, please!!

Love everything about this!

Palm Beach Chic meets Hollywood Regency glamour!

Please excuse my poor quality picture... it does not do justice to this amazing art, which reminds me of my beloved Scalamandra Zebras.

Don't forget to check out C. Bell the next time you are in Palm Beach, or check out Christine's website anytime to add a bit of Palm Beach Chic in your life! 

P.S. I think this vintage carved stone lion needs to come live on our front porch...
