The Natural Handwoven Trend

I’m sure you’d agree with me that there’s something quite beautiful about natural woven pieces that have been handmade by skilled and experienced craftsmen.  Their organic textural qualities bring our homes alive with their woven forms, offering interest and tactile surfaces that touch our senses as well as their ability to offer the decorative.

Meet The Designer - Isabel Quiroga

  If I’m completely honest with you, today’s post nearly didn’t make it as a Meet The Designer one today.  You know when you discover something refreshingly new and innovative, and you find yourself thinking about it 24/7?

A Perfect Modern Family Dining Table

When it comes to designing for families, my brain automatically switches to practical parent mode. As a mother of three kids and married to a grown up version of one, it’s become a natural built-in reflex. Usually the first question that pops into my mind is “Will it survive the kids?!!”, especially when sourcing furniture. No matter how good-looking or swoon worthy a piece is, if it’s not practical and not going to stand the test of time, there’s no point in…
