On Trend: Pencil Reed Bamboo

Recalling the work of famed Italian designer Gabriella Crespi, pencil reed bamboo decor adds just the right amount of organic glamour to almost anywhere in your home. While the material was a staple of 1970s and ’80s  design, it is being re-discovered and utilized in every kind of interior and aesthetic, from streamlined midcentury, to Scandinavian minimalism, to an eclectic boho mix of all styles. The warm caramel color is versatile, and adds subtle texture to your space. As with many relics of that era,  these pieces are ripe for a comeback, and it’s easy to see why.

We happen to have a few pencil reed pieces as part of our Coveted Home Flea inventory, both in impeccable condition.

Design and Cocktails in Cuba : Movements Blog

Beyond the Mambo, guitar strumming streets of Communism, Cuba hides one of the richest fields of design and interior inspiration. Earth tones merge naturally into bright pastels and woods and metals collide in a look that can only be called organic industrial.

Design elements throughout Cuba infuse native island culture, African sentiments and Spanish colonialism. All this and with a twist of Art Deco. What may appear gaudy on the surface, is far deeper and more charming in its depths and we’ve just begin to plunge into this extraordinary sea. We eagerly await for Cuban/American relations to soothe as more and more of the tiny Caribbean island comes into the spotlight

So pour yourself a Cuba Libre (recipe below) let the tunes flow* and dive into the world of Cuban design.

Mismatched Dining Chairs

Mismatched Dining Chairs are often looked down upon. I mean, why wouldn’t they just find a chair that looks good and fits and buy multiple matching chairs? Or at least matching side chairs and arm chairs? Most people go shopping for new dining chairs hoping to find a set of matching chairs that will go with their dining table. That’s fine and dandy, but there is an alternative way to think about choosing dining room chairs. *top image via Coveted Home

 Mismatched chairs can create an effortless look, but it takes thought and planning to make it work. When it looks good, there is usually a theme, color scheme, or some other common element that pulls the look together. Finding chairs that have a common color, texture, or style is key.
