Amazing – handcrafted furniture that’s not only beautifully designed, but not unspeakably spendy. Moderncre8ve is located in Cleveland Ohio, and specializes in Modern and Midcentury Modern hardwood furniture. All pieces are handmade one at a time, using locally sourced hardwood lumber from Amish country, as well as steel made in the Cleveland area. (As always, click to shop!)

Moderncre8ve’s philosophy harkens back when to when we were young. Our dad built our first house from the ground up, and built all of our furniture when we were kids. Growing up in this enviroment instilled in us early on that furniture is something that should not only serve a function and form; but be something that is timeless, beautiful, and most importantly; something that is made with love and care.

Addi’s Art

1477167769681

I’ve been on an art kick over the past few months, picking up a piece here and there to refresh and modernize my space; falling in love with a new generation of contemporary abstract fine art. I discovered the work of Salt Lake City-based artist Holly Addi while perusing Pinterest…

Her paintings are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, she focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment: the non-private space, the non-privately owned space, space that is economically uninteresting.

Chin Up, Buttercup!

hdb_logo_new_1447793453__35199.png

I was in Los Angeles last month for a little adventure driving up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco (which I highly recommend, BTW). I did a bit of shopping as well, and thought I’d feature one of my favorite home decor shops in the area. H.D. Buttercup seems to be expanding widely (there are now 4 in LA), and it’s no wonder – they stock an eclectic assortment of home decor and furnishings that are pretty unique. Here’s a little sampling… (As always, click to shop!)
