When it comes to where to put your sit-down, I favor modern classics! Some of my favorites include the brass Chiavari chair designed in Italy in the 1940's. Their elegant lines and diminutive footprint make a surprisingly bold statement. They will serve as my dining chairs. Eero Saarinen visionary architecture was enhanced with his beautiful furniture designs. I'm lucky enough to have found two of his executive chairs on the street - one with arms, the other without. They'll both be reupholstered for my office. The remarkably comfortable and look great! The Eames shell chair is a classic that's still being produced today. It's hard to find it in the original fiberglass, however. My grandparents had two of them, and I have them now. The arm chair is one of the original production units and features a rope edge, which is quite rare. They're in elephant gray. Last, but not least is the butterfly chair, designed in 1938 in Argentina. I have a small butterfly sling stool with a leather seat which I occasionally use as a side table when entertaining by setting a large ceramic dish on the seat.

Collecting furniture can get a bit cumbersome, but it's hard to resist when there are so many beautiful pieces to chose from. What are some of your favorites?  Tell me in the comment section under this video!

Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950's nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.

The Brini Maxwell Show

The pilot for the original show was produced in 1996. The show debuted on Manhattan Neighborhood Network on January 1, 1998, and aired for 5 years featuring tips, recipes, entertaining ideas, craft projects, home renovation and interior design schemes. It was produced by Sander's production company V.R.U.S.P. Inc. and directed by Sander's mother, Mary Jane Wells.

In 2001 Sander was contacted by Amy Briamonte, east coast director of development for west coast based Termite Art Productions (now Creative Differences Productions). Briamonte and Sander developed a pitch for the show for the Bravo network and received an order for a pilot. The pilot was produced in the summer of 2002 for a show titled Charming, Needs Work. The premise for the show was Maxwell lived in an apartment that she redecorated every week. After Bravo passed on the show Briamonte, Sander and Termite Art pitched it to Stephen Schwartz and Heather Moran, newly named VP's of programming for the Style network. The pitch resulted in an order for a 13-episode season.

The first season of The Brini Maxwell Show for the Style network was taped in the summer of 2003 with studio production taking place on the main stage at Unitel Studios on west 57th St. in New York City. Location shoots for the season were taped over a period of 6 months in New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
