What trend stuck with me most from this Furniture Market? Attention to detail. Sure there were trends like shagreen, petrified wood and other naturally inspired pieces but the things that kept catching my eye were the details.
Layers of metal work, jewel like hardware, patterned aprons and trellised stretchers….Delightful!
Interior designers love details. We get excited when a manufacturer not only fabricates a piece that is well executed in quality but also goes the extra mile to make the piece special.
Here’s a sampling of the special details that got my blood pumping.

And speaking of details…I have been very remiss in updating you on whatever happened to the Spatula Dresser!
For those of you who missed the post, a reader wrote to me and asked for help finding hardware for her IKEA hack dresser. Since the detail on the drawer fronts is large, she was having trouble with the scale in regards to knobs she could readily find.
We affectionately called it “the Spatula Dresser” because she was actually using a spatula to open her drawers! I took immediate pity on her and I found these vintage knobs for her online:
Guess what? She bought them and she loves her dresser. We can’t call it the Spatula Dresser anymore and we love it all the more now with the new hardware.
Hope your week is great! Can you believe it’s November? Eeek!
