Livable Luxury With Interior Designer, Victoria Pouncey

Meet Victoria

Victoria Pouncey and her partner Beth Ann Kallen are co-owners of Folly, a home furnishings store and interior design studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. These two friends, who met when their children were in preschool together, like to say that Folly is where north meets south since Victoria is from New York and Beth Ann is from Alabama. They focus on livable luxury, creating spaces for their clients that are beautiful and unique yet completely comfortable and functional for today’s lifestyles. Victoria looks at her design projects like solving a puzzle -- taking all the elements of the design scheme and rearranging and refining them until the perfect picture emerges.

A Natural Beauty

The Newport Grasscloth Coffee Table offers a straightforward silhouette and receives a dazzling dose of depth and texture through woven grasscloth.

Playful Sophistication

An intimate seating area designed by Victoria Pouncey gives this great room a warm and welcoming feel. Traditional design elements like a multicolored botanical print, chinoiserie garden stools, and tailored upholstery styles pop against the timeless texture and silhouette of our handcrafted Newport Grasscloth Coffee Table.

"My client loves blue and white but I wanted the scheme to be more nuanced. Once I found the gorgeous updated floral that I used on the slipper chairs it was off to the races. I needed a perfectly simple, neutral coffee table and the Newport Grasscloth Coffee Table was the one. This table can work with so many styles that it's become one of my go-to project picks."

Victoria's Design Tip

"Always try to have fresh flowers somewhere in your home. I love having a mint julep cup of blooms or a bud vase with a rose from the garden on my bedside table."
