Our Winter Must Haves!

Now that we are enjoying a lovely mid-February chill, it is abundantly clear that the 2009/2010 Winter furniture and accessories markets have come and gone. From Dallas to NYC to Paris, design houses from around the world have introduced their newest gems! We have gauged the temperature of interior design and it seems that vintage looks and natural materials are what's hot!

We absolutely love the soft, warm glow of a filament bulb on a cold winter's night! These bulbs are made using the same technique and materials used in early Edison bulbs, giving them an authentic, vintage look.

Cotton laminated bags are perfect for your upcoming spring shopping! You can feel good about using these tough bags that are manufactured from recylcled materials. Laminated cloth used in India to package bulk fabric is repurposed, becoming your favorite functional tote.

Brighten your cold winter table with these eclectic "Soiree" glasses from Roost. These start as clear glassware that are then dipped in fabulous translucent colors. I love the vintage feel of these glasses: dots, arcs and stripes are etched into the color layer.
