square root industries, Todd Loewy

Hi Friends, We just got some beautiful new coffee tables in by local designer Todd Loewy. By combining multiple mediums including metal, wood, acrylic, powder coating, and glass each table reaches a depth and feel which mixes colors and imagery to create a unique and functional piece of art. We have two pieces in the store now and Todd is always open to do custom work as well. You really have to see these in person to appreciate them! Come by our showroom, our new hours are Wednesday-Saturday 11-6. Cheers, Tyffany

Modern Wallpaper...not the same old designs

dear friends, I have to share something embarrassing --- Carey just helped me have my place painted after having a swatch on my wall for about 4 months (well, maybe 5 months even).  This is a classic case of the 'cobblers kids have no shoes' and, as a design store owner for 7 years now and an interior design 'adult' student on the side, this is a shame.  I see more products and materials and vendors in a year than most people see in a decade.  I am also a voracious reader of international design magazines (yes, the kind you hold in your hand and save for inspiration for just that one dog-eared page!).  Well, I chose this paint company for its NO VOC paint-palette and also the fact that they were 'born' locally called Yolo.   Also, I've decided what to do with my little bathroom and hallway --- Ferm Living Wallpaper.   I really wanted some texture and variation, but not too much and not really into trendy things. So, here's to adding color and texture to our lives.    We have all the samples here at relish, so feel free to come by, have a seat and play with us...
