South African Interiors Inspiration

I recently spent 3 weeks in South Africa, starting in Cape Town and ending up near Johannesburg on Safari.  In short, I can't share everything yet, but I was tremendously inspired.  My greatest love is traveling to far away places, staying with locals and experiencing their food, design, inspiration and creativity from the cultural "styles" of a region.  I will be sharing bits and pieces over the next few months (i.e. as I go through the 2K photos!), starting today with this custom sofa company called Casamento at the Biscuit Mill.    Check out the various hand-made designs, many of which are completely one-off designs and each a little different.  Also, loved this threaded art from Erica Elk here.  Stay tuned for more in the following weeks!  cheers, trisha

Stubborn Works Jewelry at Relish!

We're happy to announce that we're featuring the beautiful work of local artist Melissa Stiles of Stubbornworks in the Relish showroom!

Come in to browse her unique collection of stainless steel and resin jewelry, cufflinks, and powder coated ornaments.

With a degree in architecture, her training is apparent in the clean lines and strong parameters of her work- all set in vibrant resin hues. Great for the Modernist who loves fun yet simplistic jewelry. One of my favorites- and local to boot!

Cheers, Carey
