Friday Finds presents...

...Holiday Table Decor

We will be sharing with you some of our favorite holiday tables (Thanksgiving/Fall themed). 

Love the white pumpkins encircled by bittersweet vine along the festive orange table runner. *Midwest Living

Not your mother's table!  This is a bit over the top, but it's too fabulous not to share.  Click here for easy tips on how to design this table.

You can go as festive as you like or keep it a simple with adding a few acorns to a tree branch.  Here you will find more beautiful Fall table settings.

If you're planning a formal holiday dinner, here is a little template to follow on place settings...

Also for the more "informal" table setting.

We hope you've enjoyed our "Holiday Table Settings".  

We wish you a wonderfully warm holiday.

Friday Finds...

Creative Bookshelves 

We love reading and I know as weird as this may sound, the way old books smell.  So that brings us to this weeks "Friday Finds".

Traditional bookshelves are perfectly fine, but why when you can find more creative ways to display your favorite reading material.

If you're really good with building and carpentry, we found some really cool DIY ideas.

Let's get to reading and make it interesting to find that special book!

Friday Finds

Today's finds are all about "creative" lighting.

These felt lamps are designed by Vanja Bazdulj.  They are made out of wool felt which is molded and painted.  Vanja is interested in playful and experimental use of materials.

"The light in a house is as if our idea is born.  It is the challenge of the senses and a game of passion.  It is the most important thing to make a house vivid", by Fragiskos Bitros of FMFOS.  The chandelier on the left, "Roots" was inspired by a yoga excercise...the notion of taking root in the ground, spreading out and grounding one's self.  The other one, "Metal Flowers", there are 45 bulbs...and who doesn't like flowers.

These lights almost look like bird wings or bat wings.  They are made out of crushed mulberry bark fibers which have been turned into a pulp.  Mulberry is an invasive plant in Asia.  B. Alter, la torre cruz is the designer from the Philippines.

Aren't these two simply gorgeous!  Meet Anthony, founder and owner of "Primo Glass", specializing in handcrafted glass creations and custom lighting fixtures.  They blow and fuse the glass at the studio in their retail location located in Pier Village in Long Branch, NJ.  If you're a local or live close by, be sure to check out their retail store.

Last but far from least, "The Tornado" by Daniel Hopper Design.  Daniel's goal is to use metal to help bring a space to life, for viewers to be inspired to describe his work with adjectives not nouns, like strong, quiet, dramatic.  He likes to use patterns and design concepts found in nature, to allow his pieces to become their own being, rather than force them to represent or imitate nature.  I think, Daniel, definitely accomplished his goal with this piece.  Be sure to go to his website to see more of his fabulous work.

I hope you like this weeks "Friday Finds" by Dark Decors.

Friday Finds

Our favorite holiday is quickly approaching...HaLLoWeeN! 

We couldn't help but share with you, "The Dusty Raven Gallery".

Dan Towell is the owner, curator and designer. His creations reflect his drive to create and re-define.  He gathers what has been left by nature and man and integrates it into whimsical and unique works of art.

He's even inspired from a popular children's book, "Charlotte's Web".

We love that "Halloween" seems to be a favorite of his as well...

Spiders (listing for two blue)

With Fall just around the corner as well, he creates beautiful Fall flowers from vintage metal boxes, each one cut and shaped by hand.

There is so much more to see at "The Dusty Raven Gallery". 

Thanks for joining us for Dark Decors' "Friday Finds".
