Green Tea Design carries, what they call, Asian-industrial style. Based in Toronto, their furniture features clean lines and an elegant Northern Asian aesthetic. If you’re a designer, and your clients are looking for something along these lines, bookmark Green Tea as your resource. I know I will. A stunning selection!
Known for their custom-designed kitchens, plasma TV consoles, signature step chests and authentic Japanese antiques, they’ll even customize items for you by offering you a broad assortment of stains, finishes and hand forged hardware to fit your needs, and they ship worldwide. They use salvaged hardwoods like elm and gingko proving thier commitment to the environment, as well. I just love these photos of their showroom, this style is so beautiful – organic, textured, modern, clean.
Greentea Design was featured on The Apprentice 4, on various HGTV programs, and in respected publications like INSTYLE, Architectural Digest, In Touch Weekly and The Robb Report. Hollywood is taking notice and Greentea Design is a hit with a-list celebrities William Baldwin, Camryn Manheim, director Ron Howard and Alanis Morisette.
Scheduled for October 2006 is an exciting new Greentea Condo Collection of small- space furniture options, too. Stay tuned!

I love bold prints, and these cards from Pie Bird Press made my day all happy with these bold primary colors. Simple objects, like fried eggs + popcorn, look amazingly cute – can’t you see these framed in a kitchen? You could also collage images, including these cards, as a backsplash in your kitchen adding plexiglass to protect them (have it custom made to fit the space.) Maybe even do a little image transfer onto fabric?

These sweet tissue holders and hair pin can be yours at K Autumn. I know flu season has past, but a lady always keeps tissues at hand in her purse – you never know when you’ll splash something fruity and boozey on your pretty blouse! I love this hair pain, how festive for an Autumn or Winter wedding, I can see a very happy bridal party wearing these. For the home, I’d like to put one on a throw pillow, or frame it in a shadow box for the wall. Lovely! All items handmade and extremely sweet.
