Redefine Home owners believe your home should be comfortable, functional and beautiful. It should be uniquely yours. I’ve featured their stuff before but hadn’t stopped by in a while so today’s goody from this are these galvanized steel stools. Talk about versatile! Use them as a small table or laptop prop or makeshift ottoman for [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays

Up first on this week’s Etsy celebration is this fabulous floor lamp from Castlewerks, home of “rocket age lighting.” (Such a great description, don’t you thnk?) It’s made from bent laminated American black walnut and shoji white silk laminated paper. I love the elegant simplicity of the design. It’s 62 inches tall and 10 inches [...] [Read More]

Sofa Anyone?

This modern sofa by Edgar Blazona caught my eye on 2Modern. It’s a contemporary take on the classic Danish version and comes in five colors with two wooden leg finishes. It’s made of sustainable birch and features low VOC finishes, so it’s eco-friendly as well.  I like the sleek look. We currently have a large [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays

A little flavor of the season kicks off today’s Top Three Thursday on Etsy. These Chrismasy pillow covers  from Leni Designs with snowflakes are just wonderful. They’re suggestive of winter and the holidays without being cloying. Very very nice. Cost for one organic cotton cover, 40 cm X 40 cm, is about $18.81 USD. How [...] [Read More]

Sweet Sofa

on
Ooh I wish this was available Stateside, but sadly I will have to lust for it from afar. This Mabel sofa was designed by Donna Wilson for SCP and is covered with a mix of natural fibers. The legs are turned beech. I love the shape and the colors. I’m a big fan of mix-and-match [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays

Today’s first choice on Top Three Thursdays is meant to show anyone who thinks Etsy is just for craftspeople making crocheted items the real breadth of what’s on this fabulous website. Take a gander at this. It is made with four different types of hardwood — Peruvian Maple, Satinwood, Birdseye Maple and Hard Maple — [...] [Read More]
