Acoustic Wall Panels make big impact



Decorative Acoustic Wall Panels from Anne Kyro Quinn.

With the use of natural felt and fabrics, these lush decorative panels render an artsy improvement and look that any home owner is bound to approve. As far as to the impact of the wall panels, designer Anne Kyro Quinn describes it as: “our products bridge the gulf between the urban interior and the natural landscape, and bring an elegant, unassuming beauty into everyday life.”

Prooff’s Ear Chair

prooff-s-ear-chair-large2.jpgWith a husband that travels 35+ weeks a year, a full-time job, and a very rambunctious, high-energy 1 1/2 year old son, at the end of the day, I simply want to be left alone!

Thank you to Prooff for understanding.

Landing Lighting


As someone who trips over their own feet and frequently stumbles during midnight trips to the bathroom, I find the Landing Lighting design from Kim HyunJoo, with it's unique light omission, to be not only ingenius, but a neccessity.

Chalkboards in the Kitchen


Two years ago my husband and I were feeling crafty and, with the help of spray-on chalkboard, created an entire chalkboard wall in our kitchen.  It was a messy project, but has become the singularly most useful thing in our kitchen.

Now I need to get my hands on the Magnetic Board in Black Matte by Homapal -- an easier way to install chalkboards!
