Power of art in the home.

Through the ages of time people have always understood the importance of having art in their life. From statues standing in town square to more personal works hanging in their home, art is a key factor in society. Not only is art a great way to record the past but, it also can add that personal human touch to any room of the house.  Easily turning the empty spots above fireplaces and walls into a focus point of conversation, while sharing your home with friends and family.  Whether it’s a painting of old or a new masterpiece, the styles and choices of what fits you and your desired environment are endless. Already have that piece your just absolutely in love with or has been in the family for years? Why not design a room around the art and incorporate everything you like about it into a actual living space. Now the next time you feel like something is missing you will know what, art.

I can see straight through you!

There is something beautiful about transparency. It could be its unabashed view of how things really are. Or it could be its amazing simplicity in a world of ever-growing complexity. Whatever it is, I simply love furnishings that make good use of transparent features. This chair, with its classic and simple design, is both fun yet also elegant. The polycarbonate material gives it a bright sheen finish, reminiscent, to me, of a diamond. These side chairs would be perfect for a light and airy outdoor area, or even around a dining table for a more modern look.  No matter the floor treatment – stone, wood, or accent rug – this chair will easily tie the room together – if, you know, you can stomach the $20,000 (!!!) price tag.

Speaking of tying the room together, how cool is this table for tying together all your loose ends in your workspace. Rather for a garage or other home office, this “Treasury” table provides a neat way to organize and semi-display all your handy knick knacks and supplies. It gives a new meaning to the phrase “hidden in plain sight”!
