More $1 Design Finds

Posted on | August 12, 2008 | 1 Comment

Here are some more $1 finds that didn’t make the domino slide show. Want super cheap placemats that look like hemstitched linen? Check out Christmas Tree Shops for a huge selection available in a number of colors for just a $1 each (above). Below are a few more items to add to your entertaining arsenal. Striped Mexican candles add just the right amount of color to get a fiesta party started. I found the candles at a dollar store in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The bottom pick are glass cups that I think could easily double as votives. Scatter on the table for instant moodiness. I found the blue cups at Jacks 99 cent store in Manhattan.


Blue Striped Hand Made Tabletop

Posted on | August 12, 2008 | Comments Off on Blue Striped Hand Made Tabletop

I’ve been craving really simple shapes and colors lately. Totally opposite of what I normally would want. I’m a big pattern and bright color freak. As I pick out things for our new house I’m kinda moving away from the rainbow colors and toward a restrained palette. Right now I am drawn to these simple tabletop pieces by Hering Berlin. Each piece is handmade in their Berlin studio.

“Pieces are either thrown and shaped on the potter’s wheel freehand, hand thrown over plaster forms, or slip-casted. Molds are a no-no in the Hering studio.”

The blue you see in the stripes is actual cobalt blue. Each line is carefully hand-painted onto the pieces. Gorgeous! Check out more: roseandradish.com.
