What’s New is New!

Our new goods from this past High Point market has started to pour in. Now more than ever, we tried to bring in furniture pieces with great value without compromising the quality and style that our customers expect from us. Our Chester sofa has come in in a brand new fabric! Totally on trend in a fun citrine color (this picture does not do it justice), this will really pop…

Totally Floored

Admit it. You’ve always been a bit of a rebel. You wouldn’t think twice about jumping on the back of a bike (not the kind you pedal) and that leather jacket you sport all the time isn’t just for show. It’s about time your house matched your badass personality.  Ting Home has the perfect thing: Embossed leather flooring. On first glance, it looks like ordinary wood flooring, but a closer…

Mood Lighting

I love nothing more than to sit on a back patio with a chilled glass of Riesling and a plate of cheese and fruit and chat with friends and family until the mosquitoes chase us indoors. Sometimes, when the weather is cool enough, the mosquitoes don’t make an appearance and we can hang out well into the night. That’s when I would want a setup like the one above (from…

This Is What Heaven Looks Like…

via Elle Decor May ’09 I recently uploaded some new finds to the Rooms We Love section (to your right!), and was particularly fond of these two finds. Okay, “fond” is an understatement. I think they’re heavenly. I love how to bed above combines modern and vintage so literally. The mismatched nightstands are the perfect complement to the traditional/modern/eclectic style. via Domino’s final issue 🙁 I’ve been salivating over this…

HF Weekly Obsession: You’re So Tree-sy

I stumbled upon this stool in the store the other day. Literally. I’ve got the bruises on my shins to prove it. Lesson learned. Once I got a good look at the Tree Cycle Crystal Stool, I realized it was quite pretty with sections of sparkle captured within the tree stump. It would make the perfect little side table with a nice coffee table book and a vase of peonies.…

Objets d'(bog)Art

Oh snapdragon, 7 x 15″, pen on paper. I’m sure you don’t need reminding that Cynthia Bogart is making her debut this Saturday at Laszlo’s Warehouse. You already know she’ll be showing her breathtakingly beautiful works on paper. You’ve gathered your entourage, figured out what you’ll wear, mapped out directions. You’re ready, you’re set. So telling you that it starts at seven and that you can find more information here…

One!

I stored these images a while ago, but for whatever reason, I am only now coming back to them. These are photographs of the home of Lee Radziwill in the April ’09 issue of Elle Decor. I wrote a similar blog about using one pattern in a room, but that was one room in a house and these are multiple single-patterned rooms within one house! On the one hand, it’s…

Sackboy Lives!

I wish I had stumbled upon this sooner. My husband’s birthday is coming up in a week or so and this would be the perfect cheeky add-on to his present. You see, several months ago, John annoyed me into letting him buy Little Big Planet, which, in my mind, was just another one of his dang video games. He begged me to play it with him- just once- and see…
