Although we have about three weeks left of Daylight Savings Time, the cooler weather and shorter days are definite harbingers of the season to come. And though we moaned about losing an hour of sleep last March, we get that precious hour back on November 2nd.
While many people have given up wearing a watch in favor of a phone strapped to their side, having clocks on display in the home is a great way to have functional artwork in your space. Our Vintage Timekeeping Collection offers something a little more stylish than a tablet to keep track of time at home or in the office.

Climactic world events often influence our culture in many ways.
