Seat Cushions by Grain de couleur

Ooo, more eye trickery, and this time it benefits our derrière. Grain de Couleur specializes in digital printing on fabric, and as you can see here, they've created these seat cushions that have the look of other various materials, front and back. They are a bit on the smallish (and poofy) side, so take note of the size before buying a full set for a dining chair makeover. Paille ...Read more

Nearest is Dearest Picture Frame Set

If you're still searching for a Valentine's Day gift, listen up. Unless you have the time to make something thoughtful (like your own valentine notebook), do not, I repeat, do not, resort to a heart shaped box of chocolates or fluffy teddy bear. It lacks all kinds of imagination and is just plain wrong. You can do better. Perhaps pick out a picture frame, or two, such as this Nearest ...Read more

Thermostatic Freestanding Shower

I'm in the midst of remodeling a 100 year old craftsman home, which means I'm pouring through several hundred design retailers in search of craftsman appropriate fixtures. Which also means I find fixtures that I love but are definitely not craftsman appropriate. This makes me cry a little inside. Here's a modern fixture that I would love to put in a home one day. It won't be this current one...but ...Read more

B&B Italia Leather Sectional Sofa by Afra Scarpa

I'm obsessing over 1970's vintage leather right now, and mainly this arose out of living with a man who is allergic to my cat. My wool Bottoni sofa is a virtual sponge for cat dander, and my poor boyfriend can't take it any longer. We looked at new leather--but if you buy a high quality piece it will cost about as much as a car. So, on to Ebay I ...Read more
