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. All throughout history, wood has been turned into furniture not just for its ease of manipulation and construction. Its warm hues, beautiful grain and durability make it a favored choice for all styles of home decor, from modern and contemporary to traditional. With a constant supply of new wood designs being created by today’s designers, its popularity shows no signs of waning.
When the granddaddy of all interior design publications throws a design show, expectations (and excitement) are high. Homedit is looking forward to bringing you all the highlights from the Architectural Digest Design Show 2016, held March 17-20. The 15th annual event will present the latest in all facets of design, for all tastes and sensibilities, from minimalist and modern to opulent and casual.
Free-standing bathtubs — particularly claw-foot tubs — have always had a cult following, but today’s designers and homeowners are having a renewed love affair with the old-fashioned concept. Current styles are a far cry from their ancestors, who were more likely to be made of wood or copper. 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. The fair brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. 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.
