Home Accents

Brains and Brawn.

Brains and Brawn.

"If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking" - Haruki Murakami. 

Same can be said with the decor items you put in your home.  We firmly believe that everything in your home should be a reflection of who you are.  Our constantly changing masculine decor items can make a bold statement and add sophistication and style to most room settings.  These resin bookends offer a dose of "manly" without over doing it.  They are strong enough to hold all your favorite reads.

Golden.

Golden.

Spring is around the corner, (we hope), and with that always comes the urge to update a few things in the home.  We happen to love metal finishes.  Everything from bronze, and copper to gunmetal and gold can be used to add a bit of drama to an otherwise subdued interior.  These starburst home accent pieces would add a small explosion of gold to a side table, mantel, or bookshelf.  It's a permanent fireworks burst in your home.

Keep your head about you.

Keep your head about you.

When you are adding accents to your home they should reflect some of your personality to avoid a sterile and unfeeling environment.  We are also a big believer in adding a bit of sense of humour with your decorative accessories. The wire Scully Sculpture is a fun decor piece that has a handmade yet industrial feel to it. It would also make a great home for your favorite hat.

The Gilded Age.

The Gilded Age.

Gold, burnished brass, and bronze; these are the three metals we can't get enough of.  Arteriors is one of our suppliers that provides us with amazing lighting, and home accents in metals and finishes second to none. The sophistication and craftsmanship in their pieces is unmistakeable, while the designs cover a wide range of styles to suit almost any interior that is in need of a touch of class.  We consider it the James Bond of lighting and interior accents - it's just that cool.

Light up your life.

Light up your life.

Thanks to Daylight Saving Time you might now find yourself in the dark more than you would like.  We have a carefully choosen collection of table lamps, floor lamps, pendants, and wall sconces to light up your home.  If you have something specific in mind, let us know, since our suppliers offer a multitude of styles and finishes to suit most interiors.  We just might save you from the darkness. 

Let's play catch.

Let's play catch.

We all have stuff that needs to be thrown somewhere.  Where ever you put this ceramic catchall - on a hall table by the front door, or a dresser in the bedroom - you will always be reminded of the wise words of Pierre Bergé, "embrace reality even if it burns you".  Plus, your keys, coins, and all the random things found at the bottom of your pockets can be tossed into this retro inspired tray. 

Collections for Collectors.

Collections for Collectors.

We are very careful with the curation of our home decor product.  We look for quality pieces that are well made, and take on a modern yet classic form. What makes it even better, is if they are made using traditional manufacturing practices or are handmade. Klein Reed porcelain pottery covers all of the above.  With beautiful classic shapes made “from scratch” in their Brooklyn, NY studio,  their vessels are truly timeless works of art.  They have designed collections for companies such as Herman Miller,  Dansk, and one of our favorites, Room & Board.  It's a line we are happy to showcase in the shop.
