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
Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! We hope you’re finding a special way to welcome 2013. This Style Me Sunday is all about celebrating the glitz and glam of New Year’s celebrations.
Here, retro glam meets industrial style. The Restoration Industrial Factory Side Table makes a statement as its masculine wooden surface juxtaposes with a finely crafted Modernist Champagne cooler. Sparkling light fixtures like Barn Light Electric’s Tubular Linear Iron Chandelier look elegant year round. If you lack the space for a large lighting fixture, try a petite pendant like the Indy Pendant. You can dress it up with a variety of bulb styles, or even use a porcelain socket!Read More
Sugar and spice…Makes a great combination for snicker doodles, ciders, and holiday potpourri. But what about living rooms designs? This is the perfect time of year to play around with warm hues and sprinkling white accents keeps the design fresh and relevant.
For this styleboard, neutral basics like the Toss the Bouquet metallic wallpaper, the Florence Style Sofa in Chocolate Brown Wool sofa and the Vintage Curved Leg Table in polished brass create the ideal foundation.Read More

Designers always make it look so easy, don’t they? How on earth can you possibly create a good looking room by digging through local flea markets and estate sales? Pretty certain the times I’ve gotten up early on a Saturday to find a few treasures, I’ve returned home empty handed. How about you?
More than likely, the image shown today had several designer’s input – it comes from Better Homes & Gardens after all. But isn’t it quaint? It’s got that traditional homey feel with the formal seating arrangement, side cart, and large Victorian style mirror. There are plenty of vintage finds down below, yet something is a bit outside the box once you look upward.
Almost as if the room was horizontally cut in half design wise, the upper portion reveals the home’s true bones – it’s a loft! High ceilings draw your eyes up to notice the concrete beams, exposed ductwork and commonly found item – the suspended bike to save on floor space. These modern, industrial traits are carried over into the loft’s ceiling fan.
Whether or not it was installed before or after, the centralized modern ceiling fan just seems to work. Mirroring the design of our Lapa Ceiling Fan, the Bright Nickel finish plays off a few accents found throughout while the white blades reflect around some sunlight and keep it open and airy. Ceiling fans are not only great accessories, but they’re oftentimes a necessity in big cities. It’s not uncommon to move into an older building that’s not equipped with central air conditioning – not something you want to find out on the first hot day of summer!
Whether you wish to try your hand at early morning sales or leave that to the pros, however you choose to decorate is totally up to you. Just remember, you can always easily shop from home with us!

A designer is always on the lookout for fun, new ways to decorate. One of our favorite magazines, Coastal Living has a way of taking everyday beach decor, and combining it with elegance and sophistication – ultimately creating a space that we could only dream of living in.
The designer of this space had one thing in mind, family; the bright colors and open floor plan welcome guests for a weekend of fun. Traditional accents like pineapples, dolphins, and shells add a kid friendly touch of of whimsy to the space. Adding to the whimsy, one may notice the metal bucket hanging over the kitchen island. Such pieces typically house fresh clams, lobsters, and oysters for a typical New England clam bake, but have now been brought indoors to add additional coastal charm.Read More
