Spiegel: Home

Some may consider Spiegel a bit old school (or oldskool, depending on your age), but I find some unique home decor items on their website from time to time. Have an open mind, sometimes the places where you least expect to find something great is where you really do.

For instance, Spiegel has a fantastic selection of lamps with graphical shades that speak very much to the patterned shade/solid base trend we’ve been seeing. Since shades are so easy to swap out, it’s actually a great idea to purchase a lamp base you love and simply swap out the shade from time to time, alternating between patterns and solids, to give your space an all new look. Spiegel also has some nice floral salad plates and these fabulous mirrored stars for adding the perfect touch of sparkle.

Myrica Bergqvist (Sweden)

Now, let’s step away from etsy finds for a bit, and look at these stunning acrylic beds from Swedish designer, Myrica Bergqvist, available in several colors and four key styles.

A modern interpretation of the past, Myrica’s designs add just the right touch of ‘wow’ without transforming your bedroom into the set of Marie Antoniette. In addition to headboads, Myrica also creates lighting and home accessories. If you’d like to locate her work, visit her stocklists online. This is Lady Babsy, available in black, white, or mirror.


Queenie, available in clear, white, smokey brown, smokey grey, black, red, mirror. Also shown in top image as a double.


Sir Elton, available in black, white, or mirror. The final headboard (not shown) is Miss Nouveau.

MaryInk

Here’s a fun etsy find… MaryInk of Nashville. Screenprinting everything by hand, they’ll even print your own designs upon request (so cool!). Their etsy store churns out everything from candle holders to tees, aprons, paper goods, and totes. Great prices, too. Sweet find!
