Unfortunately, after a few times of wear/washing/usage, the item no longer looks/feels the same, in fact, it starts to fall apart quickly.There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to save money, but it’s important to know frugality doesn’t mean we should purchase cheap items.

  • Neutrals With a Twist - Part One

    Neutrals are making a comeback as people are taking a break from bold, bright colors. Beige has been given a bad rap as boring and safe but we can show you how to revamp colorless design in fresh, new ways!  We can create stunning looks with neutrals by layering materials, playing with textures and adding shapes to a space!

  • Designing for the Flip Side!

    As designers, we really appreciate when a great deal of thought is put into designing a piece of furniture. It has to look good from all angles! When a chair has that extra attention to detail it really stands out!

  • A New Way to Tuft!

    We are back from High Point Market and eager to share the latest and greatest! Channel style quilted furniture certainly caught our eye this October! It is a blend of modern, clean lines but a little puffy and inviting at the same time!

  • The Future is Bright, Bold and Gold!

    It is fascinating to see how interior design and fashion follow the current economic and political mood in our country! In a two part series, we will explore how the country’s economic upswing is influencing furniture design and color, metal choices and material selections. First, we will take a look at how furniture designers are trending towards plush, tailored and richly hued fabrics!

  • Crystals and Geodes and Corals, Oh My!

    Crystals, geodes and corals have been trending in design and fashion for the past few years and instead of phasing out, have become even more popular! It seems as though they have become the new way to incorporate a layer of natural beauty into your interior design. We can now expand our options of bringing the outdoors in by not only using plants and flowers, but also using gems, rocks, geodes, agates and corals!
