Soon, all eyes will be set upon the sky in anticipation of this month’s total eclipse of the sun. Shop symbolic designs that celebrate solar power —the celestial body emblemized in mirrors and lighting, wallcoverings and trim. Bask in the golden glow of Century’s iconic sunburst mirror, fabrics from JAB and Barbara Barry’s Celestial Commode for Baker Furniture. Explore the range of powerful performance fabrics from the Hartmann&Forbes Solarscreen collection and radiant designs in sconces and table lamps from Niermann Weeks and Currey & Company.
This spring at High Point Market it was clear (pun intended) that furniture and accessory brands alike were embracing acrylic. Century Furniture has launched a collection of acrylic furniture by Thomas O’Brien that pairs the modern material with glass and wood veneers. Thayer Coggin makes a statement with Milo Baughman’s iconic Bond Acrylic Chair and Select Drapery Hardware has recently unveiled a new collection of acrylic rods and finials. Shop these, as well as designs from Spectrum Limited and Lillian August Fine Furniture below and contact the showroom for pricing, specs and custom options.
In addition to showcasing the latest products and trends, it’s the goal of the Design Digest to continually educate customers, providing information that will ensure both beautiful and successful applications and installations.
Q: Is it wise to use a wallcovering in a bathroom or powder room? If so, is there a way to ensure that moisture won’t become an issue?
A: It is absolutely fine to use wallcoverings in a bathroom—so long as you choose the right wallcovering and create the proper environment.
First, remember that ventilation is paramount when creating an environment suitable for wallcoverings. Fans and windows can help to eliminate moisture and prevent mold or mildew from forming.
While natural wallcoverings are extremely popular, they are not the best choice in a damp environments. In the case of bathrooms, we suggest customers consider vinyl alternatives like those offered by Phillip Jeffries. Vinyl wallcoverings can provide the look of a natural paper but with the addition of an Anti-Microbial element and Stain Repellent Finish.
Phillip Jeffries is a brand dedicated to an ongoing, innovative product development process and it shows in their vast range of vinyl options that provide stunning alternatives to papers crafted from linen, silk, bamboo, leather, cork, seagrass, paper weaves, raffia, grass cloth, burlap, help and more.
