The Enduring Appeal of Wood
The enduring appeal of wood — no matter what new materials are developed and discovered, it is always a popular choice for home furnishings and accessories.

With a constant supply of new wood designs being created by today’s designers, its popularity shows no signs of waning.

As materials have advanced, so have our bathtubs, moving from porcelain-covered cast iron to stone and new composites. Whatever the material, this style of tub automatically becomes the focal point of your bathroom.
Design Miami 2015
Homedit visited Design Miami/2015, which is known as the global forum for design.

Because it takes places alongside Art Basel, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design. We saw remarkable furnishings as well as unusual home decor pieces. Some are eminently practical and functional, others pure whimsy and fun.
