A trend that seems to be gaining steam is the use of natural minerals as accessories in the home. Large geodes of natural Amethyst, Citrine, and Rock Crystal, some too exotic to name. We saw the minerals from small table top size to stand alone behemoths.

We stopped at Rizzoli and picked up a few tomes, namely the new coffee table books by Los Angeles designer Barbara Barry, and Washington, D.C. based Thomas Pheasant. Both of these designers are creators of their own lines for Baker Furniture, which we sell in all Cabana Home locations.
We were happy to see once again the line of woven leather throw pillows and rugs that we had seen last year at market.
The leather is woven in the style of Bottega Veneta, the Italian fashion leather house that specializes in woven leather goods.
We loved this line last year, and bought in to it his year. We ordered woven leather and finely scaled suede throw pillows as well as a bench with woven leather tip...
