Design Finds

March 15, 2010

I recently wrote about some of my favorite design finds from Z Gallerie and Oomph over at Real Simple but in case you missed them I’ll share just a glimpse of the good stuff here because you really don’t want to miss out on these goodies.

Design Finds

Don’t you love that great red table or how about the umbrella stand or the turquoise coffee table? Very nice pieces for Spring!

    I just wanted to say that I really enjoy Decor8. Now that your in Germany as I reader I feel that I’m getting the best of two worlds: Europe and North America.

    I wish I could read French or German as many of the European magazines you feature look so enticing. I love the way Germans celebrate Easter and Christmas. The paper mache Easter eggs and all that goes with are so pretty. Maybe it because they have a real spring. Anyway, my mom is German and looks back at those times very fondly.

    yes, I do love that little red table and the turquoise table too. I have two of the Mariposa table lamps in our master bedroom and they are special. Jonathan Adler-like. Always enjoy your picks, Holly.

    I love the lanterns. I just saw them in white at Z Gallerie over the weekend and am hoping they go on sale sometime in the near future.


  • Reply Sandy March 15, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    OHhh I LOVE LOVE LOVE that grey couch! I totally want something like that for my basement! The pillow and lamps would work nicely with the couch too! =)

    I bought a Casablanca lantern the other week at V&D in the Netherlands that is nearly identical to this one. I really had to look veeeery closely at the Z Gallerie one to spot the difference!

    Oh and the red side table (Tini Table IIz) and the Tini Table IV in light turquoise on the Oomph website are gorgeous. Now I just need a bigger place to live ;)

    Holly, that umbrella stand is the kind of thing that makes me want to rip out my kitchen and have a proper entry hall! (I’d put the kitchen someplace great too) And that sofa, kind of fabulous.

    Love that turquoise table, but at more than 4k, I’ll find a way to live without it.

    Z-gallerie has such fantastic stuff for amazing prices! I visited a store in San Diego, and they shipped me these amazing skull dishes directly from their factory (was much cheaper and safer than from their store). Great customer service, and great home accessories!

    The Bukhara pillow (shown in black and white) is also pretty amazing
    in lemon yellow and white — just saw it at the Z Gallerie Berkeley store… Super fresh. Love these picks.

    That boot shape umbrella style is cool and very innovative and the accessories chosen are perfect.

  • Reply emily @ thirtyeight20 March 17, 2010 at 8:08 am

    Love this whole collection! Those lanterns especially are so cute.

    This is kind of random, but Land’s End has pillows very similar to that lovely black and white cutout version — on sale! Just in case anyone is interested…

    I absolutely love your website!!!! I’m getting a lot ideas to decorate my new home, as my sister who lives in Brazil, we love everything we see here!

    Sorry to be so late with commenting on your post from almost two weeks ago, but I could not resist when I saw this umbrella stand. I, so, want one. How come, my husband doesn’t see the innate beauty of this object? His vague stare when I announced I’m getting one convinces me he doesn’t get it. But so what? Thanks for showing this to me! I love decor8. It’s my daily fix.
