There’s a new cow in town — Grass Cow — and it’s the latest eatery designed by Studio Kiss of Sag Harbor, New York. Principal Laszlo Kiss offers architectural, construction, and green services in his practice and recently applied his many talents to the first establishment of the new restaurant chain.
“The owner has two other restaurants, one of which I also designed, but they are larger in size and menu complexity,” Laszlo says. “For the new stores, Grass Cow, the owner wanted a homey feel that was down to earth using simple materials.” Laszlo coordinated the complete gut remodeling of the space, located on Third Avenue in New York City. The only thing left after the demolition were the metal ceiling and the wood floor — both elements that would tie the new industrial style space together.Read More
The right ambiance can make or break a bubble bath experience. Confession time: How many candles do you surround your tub with hoping their warm glow will distract you from your chunky, dated bathroom accents and the fact that your tub might be a little too small for full reclining? Are you washing between your toes with dawn soap? What is your bathroom decor saying about you?
If you want your bathroom to say, “I love stylish, hand-picked home decor accents and the occasional evening of pampering” — this bathroom is for you! It’s easy to get cozy when you have the essentials like lavish porcelain tubs, bubbly handmade soaps, and rustic mood lighting! Here are our picks for a Shabby Chic Spa Bathroom.
Remember our trip to Tybee Island? We fell in love with the nautical accents and whimsical cottage styles. The beautiful bathroom in Mermaid Manor reminds us how calming a crisp, white palette can be. Our Atomic Topless Streamline Industrial Guard Sconce adds a touch of pastel and the frosted glass emits soft and soothing light. Vintage accents make this space memorable.
Ignore the time but keep the clock with this Lille Tin vintage timepiece. A Vintage Industrial Mirror makes a portable helper for your makeup routine and storage is a breeze with the Nantucket Wall Mounted Toiletry Shelf. Add a touch of nature with this Natural White Birch Forest Wall Art.
Trade in your harsh detergent for the moisturizing Betty’s Luxury Bar Soap!

2013 is all about dazzling color palettes. Color blocking highlights the vibrancy in individual colors, and in light of our recent LED launch, we’ve been thinking a lot about industrial pendants that will perfectly illuminate these vibrant, modern spaces.
Our newest collection gives an innovative twist to our porcelain favorites. Now you can hang your stem mount Benjamin Sky Chief and Benjamin Esso with the environmentally friendly power of LED lighting.Read More
Where do you hang your stockings? We’ve seen quite the gamut of locations. From traditional mantels, stair railings, and bookshelves to free hanging stockings–there’s something promising about these little places just waiting to be stuffed with knick knacks and candy. For today’s Style Me Sunday, we’re creating a mantel piece that will rival your Christmas tree for center of attention.
Our cozy mantel was inspired by this Faux Fireplace re-do from the The Rooster and The Hen blog. Flocked Fraser Fir Garland with a light misting of white snow looks adorable draped across the corners. Vintage inspired wall sconces like the Chesapeake Bay Mirrored Wall Sconce and the Norwalk Wall Sconce both feature Nostalgic Edison style bulbs that give off a warm, almost candle-like glow.
Michelle Fritz’s Burlap Stockings are so shabby chic and look lovely besides other vintage accessories like the Bullit Mantel Alarm Clock. We love her idea of displaying fresh greenery in the stockings before Santa arrives to fill them with goodies!
Industrial home goods like the Tapering Zinc Containers add a little edge while being practical for storing fireplace accessories. The Industrial Metal Adjustable Stool is great for extra seating, but can also be used as a mantel-side table to hold your charming Enamelware Cups.
Speaking of stockings, our 2012 Holiday Sale is still going strong for another 12 days! If you haven’t taken advantage of our free shipping, now’s the time. As an additional bonus, we’re giving you 10% off all American made Porcelain Enamel lighting fixtures. Just enter the code STOCKING12 to redeem the discount!
