So, every year I patiently wait for the Homemakers Expo. This is your typical end consumer fair and is somewhere in between fabulous! and good value for money. Got it?
Some great trends being presented by the some design houses and then some craftsman. There was definitely a very raw, natural feel coming from many of the displays.
InHouse Decor and Interior Concepts show us how do incorporate the raw wood feel with wooden stumps into furniture of the home. A beautiful lamp base and a coffee table/ stool are shown here. The trick is that the wood needs to be treated in order not to deteriorate over time and also be sanded down very well. I suggest you leave this one up to the experts. These items are slowly becoming more well priced.
Tuis/Home shows us how lovely little trinkets can be displayed (right) and a new type of wall art is shown by means of light boxes where you can customize the graphics you use.
When I saw these re purposed wooden creatures, I knew I had to have them. Sadly I cannot remember who they are made by! Maybe comment and let me know?
