Lighting The Way…

Arteriors Home LightingIn these early days of spring nothing quite fits the fresh and flirty mood like the newest pieces by Arteriors. Each light brings something special to the table, reinvention of porcelain and gleaming textured sliver. With Arteriors, perfectly coordinated shades are always included.

What Goes Around, Comes Around… Reinvented

Paris Flea Market Collection of Chandeliers and Sconces
Brentwood Collection of Chandeliers
The iconic crystal chandelier is a common fixture in many households. But what happens when you kick things up a notch with a modern twist? Voila! Chic chandeliers with contemporary feminine detailing. Alluring crystals mingled with a white fabric shade, makes the Brentwood Collection a perfect blend of past and present. And what hip household can’t be charmed by a touch of shabby chic in the Paris Flea Market Collection, or the orbital stylings of the Wrought Iron Olde Silver Chandeliers? Everything old is new again.

An Organically Good Idea

Modern Bathtime and Storage Bins
In this day and age eco-friendly products are relevant and consequently all the rage… so why so monochromatic and bland? This lively and humorous new line of hooded towels and storage bins offer tip-top quality and construction with that added bit of fun you’ve been itching for. Colorful animal themes bring character to everyday items, and “Chico the Chicken” is not to be missed. We all want to surround our little ones with organic materials, so why not make it playful while we’re at it?

A Little Bird Told Me…

Feathered friends are everywhere for Spring and we’re delighted with the many ways to bring this trend to your own nest. Interpreted in bold graphics, quietly realistic renderings or with a touch of vintage whimsy, we are all aflutter over these little songbirds.
