We discovered Langdon Ltd. one year at the Las Vegas Market, and totally fell in love with their textile products.  They sell gorgeous rugs, pillows, and accessories that are just as beautiful in quality as they are in style.  We adore these totes and clutches, and think they’d make for such a unique gift!

We love to support small businesses whenever we can, and Etsy is such a great place to find them.  One Fine Nest has tons of different items to choose from, and all kinds of throw pillows to fit any style or color palette.

In an effort to be more “green”, our family has switched over to using exclusively cloth napkins instead of paper products.  And with prints and colors this sweet, it’s a no-brainer!

Quinn Table by Matthew Studios

When I first saw this table I felt like I was looking at jewelry for the home!  The blues in the stone are just perfect.  And I love the simple gold tone base that just seems to be holding onto that beautiful raw piece of stone.  This is that table that you can put anywhere in your home and it will be PERFECT!

How fun is this for a ski cabin or country house.  And such a unique way to bring the beauty of nature indoors.  Can’t you just see yourself here with a cup of tea and a good book curled up by a fire??

So often when I see reclaimed wood tables they have these very heavy bases that seem to detract from the beautiful wooden tabletop.  I love this simple iron frame, tastefully done that just enhances the beauty of the tabletop!

One of the hardest item to find is a demilune table – jut a nice narrow table to put in an entry that’s not too big and not too wide but has a lot of interest.  Your entry is your first impression so do with a pop.  I love the lines and small profile of this table and the craftsmanship speaks for itself.  Truly a beautiful piece of art to add to your collection.
