Favorite Friday! I was inspired by yet another beautiful photo of a room and had to create my own version with products from FurnitureCrate! Check out this cozy nook and how you can get your look right here!
I chose the Carrara Chair and Ottoman from Lexington for the clean lines and rich color. Like the photo, I stayed with a light wood console table, this one by Safavieh. The accents, Table Lamp by Currey & Company, Throw by Surya, and Pillow by Niche by Eastern Accents, have the light teal/blue color that I love!
Hanging artwork is one of my favorite parts of design. First, because it means you’re about to see the finished project. Second, artwork can completely make a room!
Artwork is up to personal interpretation; what is beautiful to you may not have an effect on someone else. And sometimes, people don’t have an opinion at all. But it’s important to find something you like, don’t give up!
Here are a few beautiful rooms that prove artwork can be essential to the design of your room.
Every Morning when I get into the office, I check out my design-related blogs, articles, emails and whatever else that gets my creative juices going. That is, after I pour myself a gigantic cup of coffee!
I came across a room that sparked my interest and it inspired me to recreate it with our products on FurnitureCrate!
This photo has a lot of different components but somehow work very well together. First, you have the contemporary fabric on a traditional chair. The console table has a coastal, beach feel to it with very traditional lamps and mirror above it. To tie in the coastal theme, they’ve added a sisal rug.
Here’s what I came up with!
Chairs, Table, Lamps, Mirror, Wall Art, Rug

Not only is accessorizing the best part of design, but it’s very crucial to your end result. You can see the same neutral sofa in thousands of houses, but the accessories are what will set it apart; they are your personal touch.
The accessories will ultimately decide the overall mood of the room. For example, the room pictured below has gray and blue accessories along with natural wood tables. Cool colors and natural elements like wood create a calming and comfortable feeling. Nothing is too bold or alarming throughout the room.
Even the minimal use of accessories can convey a mood. Pictured below is a monochromatic room with white and beige colors, featuring pillows and a rug with soft patterns, and sheer curtains over a tall wall of windows. It may be obvious that this room conveys a calm and serene feeling, but even the smallest details work to establish the completed look.
It’s always a good time had by all at the Last Vegas Market, but this time I wanted to let you know a little more about it. Sure, the best part is seeing all the new items, design ideas and trends, and don’t worry, we’ll get to that… But networking and communicating with our industry partners is a big part of it. Not only does it allow us as buyers to network with hundreds of potential new manufacturers, but we get to meet and discuss our current state of business with existing suppliers. We are fortunate enough to have a strong sales representation in our home state of Michigan and having the opportunity to meet with many of them in such a short span of time, is rewarding and beneficial in itself!
Ok, now onto some of our favorite new items we saw at market!
A new collection by Aspen Home, which is sure to be a big hit when it becomes available. Industrial has grown significantly this past years, and it is becoming much more elegant in it’s design.
Grandfather clocks have come a long way.. check out these new contemporary versions from Howard Miller!
Gray is still the new beige, Lots of gorgeous grey toned sofa collections
Accessories are really getting fun!
with a fun take on mid-century modern too..
Last, but not least… You could definitely still see the ‘Restoration Hardware’ trend still strong,
and the cleverly named ‘Bad Boy’ chair..
Hope you enjoyed the trip!
Whether you like contemporary, traditional, or just like sparkles, we have accessories for you!
