Decorative. Minimal. Fresh. DwellStudio's Chinoiserie collection is about what's modern now. By reducing the decorative to its essential elements, we have reinterpreted ornamentation in a fresh, minimal style for the contemporary home. attention to detail makes this collection distinctive and unique - from the rich hand of the fabrics to the addition of trim and fine tailoring. DwellStudio...living in style.

Flowers and candles are nice, but they look so much nicer when displayed with some panache. Good thing Harry Allen gives you lots of options. A cast of his own arm, an illuminating take on a familiar restaurant favorite, even a cast of his very own Gran's silver candlestick. Light up folks.

notNeutral Triton Lacquer Trays - Set of 4
notNeutral Triton Lacquer Trays - Set of 4
The offerings from notNeutral are, as it says on the box, not neutral. Their bold, graphic look is excellent for anywhere you want to add some uncommon interest to your decorating, from the nursery to the living room to the dining room.The Triton trays are a traditionally made lacquer piece. Wood forms are covered in many layers (at least 10+) of lacquer. All done by hand in a very long process to achieve the smooth look. A detailed beautiful piece.

Jason Miller Seconds Tall Teapot - Goldfinch
Jason Miller Seconds Tall Teapot - Goldfinch
Products that are "seconds" are products that are not quite right. Jason Miller's tea set challenges the rules that surround modern day consumer items. Who says the decoration has to be in the center? Who says a whole bird is better than half a bird? Made through conventional methods of mass production, the decals on Jason Miller's tea set are intentionally applied "incorrectly."
