Konzuk for 6 years now...

hi folks, I mentioned recently in our newsletter at Relish Design that I would be posting many of my favorite artists and designers that we have carried over the years. 7 years now --- a lot of amazing art shows and people and materials and stories. This one is probably my favorite over the years, Konzuk Metalwear -- her use of materials in jewelry is strongly influenced by architecture, fashion and industrial design. Enjoy...we are always on the look out for innovative and natural material use in home and product design. thanks for all the years of inspiration! trisha

First Thursday and new Marimekko Projects!

Hi Friends, For those of you that wern't able to join us at First Thursday, it was a total success and hope you can join us next time! We decided to get creative this time and showcase some of our own creations using the bold Marimekko fabrics that we had around the store. Here is how it all turned out... One of my favorite Marimekko patterns is the Iso Satakieli, or 'faces' as we call it. I am so excited to have finally had the chance to make a canvas from it! Its 48"x40" here it is... There are several new pieces to check out and remember we are always taking special/custom orders on these pieces... and in the spirit of First Thursday we will be taking 15% off of canvas orders through today! Have a good weekend, Tyffany

Interiors Project to Share!

Hello All,
Carey here this time. I wanted to share some initial images of these beautiful custom draperies we just had installed for a private client we're working with. This is for her office area that was in need of some major sun coverage as well as a pop of something fun and colorful. It certainly doesn't get more productive than hummingbirds! This is a perfect example of how we can work with anyone to find a great fabric or pattern, take measurements, and in a few shorts weeks- voila! Instant wow-factor!
Just thought I'd pass along some of the initial imagery for this part of a much larger project in the works, as it's definitely ignited my inspiration now that I truly see all the possibilities there are in window treatments.
