fall favorites: sara

radial chandelier
i love how dramatic this light fixture
is with the 12 bulbs. it also has an
old hollywood feel to me, yet is really modern with the matte black finish.
silo side tables
i love that these tables are more like sculptural pieces than your average table, and that they play off each other with their complimenting shapes and finishes. the marble also gives
it a bit of a glam feel.
drommen bed
this bed has a mid-century feel with the profile and finishes. i love how
the rich acacia wood compliments the natural and textured upholstery. it’s also a bit higher off the ground than most of our other beds, so this gives customers an opportunity to store stuff underneath.

Thanks to sara, product manager, for this submission.

summer favorites: sandra

rex chair aqua
I’m going with a CB2 classic modern outdoor chair—with good reason— the rex chair is incredibly comfortable, it stacks to save storage space, the aqua color is timeless and versatile and it’s a fantastic value.
edison string lights
after the harshest winter in decades, I’m looking forward to spending as much time outside as possible so I’m investing in this durable outdoor lighting to help keep everyone at the table just a bit longer—and the vintage bulbs are the perfect compliment to a 1940s summer cottage.
BSI mini surfboard
I’m thrilled that we found E-Tech Boards and Brett Whitacre to make this project happen—now if only I lived near surf! (btw, the bird was not Photoshop’d in!)

diy: picket fence eden pendant

Supplies:
eden pendant lamp
wooden paint stirrers
paint(s)
paint brush(es)

Directions:
Paint wooden stirrers as desired, let dry as needed then hot glue and hang!

For best results, hot glue at the top and bottom wire rings of the fabric shade—and only on the exterior of the shade.

Hint: to determine the quantity of stirrers needed, divide the circumference of the pendant shade—62”—by the width of the stirrers.

detail reveal: magnets

By Fred Anzley Annet [Public domain],

Originally discovered to occur naturally in lodestone, magnetic fields attract opposite charges (+ and -) and repel like charges
(- and -, + and +).

Discovered to attract iron some 2500 years ago, lodestones were found in the now disbanded prefecture of Magnesia in Greece—origin of the word magnet—and initially they seemed magical since few knew of their properties.

Today, magnets come in a wide variety of strengths and sizes—and when hidden, their effects appear magical again. Like those in the wood spines which hold in place the moveable metal bulb casing of clutch lamps. Designed by Jannis Ellenberger, and without hardware to constrict direction of the light, not only can they do a 360, vertical placement is equally versatile.
