this lighting is a little on the low brow side. a trash can made into an industrial looking lamp shade--clever. the light bulb just hangs from the ceiling but is ensconced within a trash can shade that is hanging by rope.

these wire leaves make for great wall art and cast a cool shadow on the wall too. forgot to ask the price so not sure how much they are but saw them at the design center at palecek.

saw these fun retro-y clocks by a british company called newgate and don't ya know you can get them on amazon too. i want one for myself but they would also be a fun gift for a friend that has great style.

it's retro. its silky. it's bow ties! yep, a rug made of bow ties. so ingenious. not sure it can go in a high traffic area but certainly a sartorial statement for your floor! another clever item seen in san francisco at flipp.

really loved this resin-seat stool that i saw being used as an ocassional table. seems like you might actually be able to make this yourself if you had a cool vintage stool base you could use. this might need to be an upcoming diy project...

oh boy oh boy do i love this light fixture. look at the gorgeous reflections it casts. sadly it will also cast dark shadows in your wallet as it costs ~$2400. but, if you need a statement piece, this outta help you out!

oh boy. fell in love with this simple, clean lines-style bench i saw at the flea market. my head was reeling with images of how i could have it reupholstered (which probably would be pretty cheap given it's simplicity). it could go from simple to simply chic. and this beauty was only $85!

i just love metal furniture. industrial. utilitarian. and yet, still good lookin'! and those big old drawer pulls are impressive. this gem at the flea market was $750! waaay out of my price range. i think it was a bit pricey but these things do take a lot of time to strip and get to this point so i can't begrudge the asking price given the labor that went into it.

these metal-base, glass-top leggy twins were getting a lot of looky loo's at the flea market. $125 a piece. i would love to haul them down to my local powder coater and freshen them up with a hot color. then they could be used indoors or out.
