Product Love: French Ceramics

I am loving ABC Home's line French Ceramics. Each ceramic piece is formed, and then has a piece of lace pressed to leave a permanent indentation in the piece. With each piece hand crafted there is no identical piece, so you will forever have something that is unique. They would make the perfect gift, or sit nicely on an old reclaimed farm table.



Last weekend at the Brooklyn flea market (which by the way I wold recommend to anyone when visiting NYC), my roommate and I came across the most stunning Art Deco dining chairs. After scoring an amazing deal we lugged our new brass and brown (yuck) velour upholstered chairs back to our apartment. Though I will be upholstering them, it sparks a thought to me asking myself what are the story of these chairs, who did they belong to and what was their home like. It is fascinating to me. I love their very broad backs with sleek brass finished cube-like legs. They are tres fanastic!

The Art Deco period is such an amazing period of interest in the interior design world. It became a widely popular style in the United States to break the revivalist tradition. The name 'Art Deco' comes from the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs Industriels et Modernes, held in Paris, which celebrated living in the modern world. The term was coined and popularized in the late 1960s and early 1970s, where not only was the trend becoming obvious in most cities architecture, but in home design also. 

Since then, deco has been a consistently popular trend, always springing up in the most eclectic of spaces. Below are some contemporary art deco spaces, and how you can get the look!

 Love the use of colors, and sleek furnishings in this very traditional set home. With the high ceilings, and molded pilaster it certainly adds a modern take on contemporary art deco style.

I love that this space seems so relaxed with its very neutral hues of fabrics. The reason why I featured this picture is because the amazing geometric coffee table, which I think sparks up this very cottage-y feeling room.

Of course I am just obsessed with this bathroom sink area. The wallpaper helps pull in the brassy hues of the mirror and sconces. Anyone would naturally feel like they time travelled back to the deco era.

How fun are my new chairs that Talula so kindly posed for!

I can't wait to get them re-upholstered and looking spic and span.

Tribal prints are all the hype right now, both in fashion and design. Though there has been controversy in the fashion world of completely using the some of the tribal prints, I think it is important that these amazing works of arts that have been made for hundreds of years by native tribes, are shown off with pride! I have so many native american friends after going to school in Colorado, and after learning from them about their amazing culture, I feel so lucky to have gotten insight into their lives.

Especially now being in the design field, I find it important to know the background and story of these prints rather than thinking they look good to the eye, and there in style right now.

These prints can bring so much vibrance to any space, and the nice thing about the fabrics is that they work in winter or summer. Here are some spaces I love, and how you can get the look.
