If you need extra storage space, a place to sit and put your shoes on or an extra lounging spot, the foot of the bed may be where you should look first. Not all rooms will allow for this sort of idea but if yours does, here are some good ones –

No, my name is not Stella but I do love furniture. More importantly, I love great furniture pieces. I came across the furniture creations from Stella Love today while checking out a new (to me) blog by Second ShoutOut (SS are passionate about vintage contemporary pieces and will have their own online marketplace soon). I adore the Stella Love creations (available through Nube Green)! She uses plaid fabrics and vintage Swiss Army blankets to bring life to these old furniture beauties…. (she also makes clothes!) Enjoy!
I came across L + J Industries of Houston on Etsy today and I LOVE their creations…. Or should I say re-creations? The company consists of twin sisters, Lynne and Julia Schafer, who take vintage furniture and redo it with a colorful, modern twist. They also make their own things that are Mid-Century inspired. Their pieces are so fun and eye catching! Check ’em out.
