Inspired by: Terrariums

You may remember from our blog last week that the Knoll Terrarium was our top seller at the show this year. Terrariums are so popular right now, and they are a great way to exercise creativity and incorporate a fun trend in your designs.

Many of our products, not just the Knoll, can be used as terrariums. I stumbled onto the Sprout Home website the other day and just fell in love with all their beautiful and creative terrarium designs. Visit their website for more terrarium inspiration!
Have any of you used our products to make terrariums? We would love to see, share them with us on our facebook page or by emailing me.

New T2: Corking Around

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you have a busy, successful day full of lots of LOVE.
We are unveiling a new Tips and Tricks video this morning, featuring John Hosek. In today's video, John uses fun and innovative techniques to create a structural, textural piece using the raw cork, glue, our packaging material, and wire. You will be amazed at how his creation turns out so beautifully, especially considering that it starts out a little bit like a science experiment gone awry. Trust me, keep watching and you will be inspired!
