I don't think you can ever have too many mirrors
 and BARREVELD  helps satisfy
those needs. This mirror was my favorite

It could work well with the distressed vintage
furniture in the previous blog.  I love the zinc
background that at first you don't realize is
part of the mirror.
This black wood window frame mirror at over
5 feet tall is also very impressive.

The top portion of this mirror is very distressed
but I really like its shape.

 Silver and copper foiled cutout mirror

A very pretty antique finished metal frame
vanity mirror or great for display for a
jewelry counter.

There are many white mirrors to choose from

And for a little sparkle this sunburst mirror
is a knock out

Glass in all shapes, sizes and finishes

Antique silver is makes for beautiful
vases and decanters.

cut glass cake covers

finials could also be used as paper weights

There is always a need for small tables
and cabinets to display these treasures.
This little antique mirror table could
be used anywhere.

The BARREVELD showroom was a feast to the eyes as usual.  From your first step in you don't know where
to look first.  The wood floors are a perfect plateform
for all the great product.
Everything is for sale even these floors.
They are avaialbe in two sizes, 32" square
and 15" square.  The two sizes give you
many design options.

Furniture has become a growing category, with
several different style types that appeal to
a wide variety of customers.
Wood framed day bed
matching side chair, both with mango wood
and natural linen upholetery

This twin and queen headboard continue
to sell well, I am partial to them because they
work so well with two of my other lines,

I like this new style, also available in a
twin and queen.  I am working on them
to add a king in both styles, so maybe next show.

cute little iron and wood arm chair

Distressed and aged to look vintage is
still one of the hottest trends.

You need the right accent pieces to complete
the look, nice big clock

door panels also make a nice headboard,
or on a small wall to create interest

I will have more to show you from
BARREVELD on my next post.

I always look forward to see what is new from
SUGARBOO DESIGNSthey are always fun
and playful.  Several new art prints.

French People Talking

The very simple but to the point
Beautiful Darling
The pink background is a fun change

Happy Bird

Another color way on a very good seller,
the cream background instead of black really
softens this piece, not as dramatic but very nice.

I love these metal hearts thrown in a big bowl

They come in two sizes, small about 2"
and large about 4".  Hearts are always
in season.

I was very happy to see a new paper category
added to the mix.  Here 75 different enclosure
cards that are sold in a set.

They are about 3" square and come with an envelope.

A binder size pad of notepaper with 100
different thoughts/quotations on the
bottom of each page. 

You an choice from--For My Dear Friend,
For the One I Love, or For My Beautiful Child

Another notepad with For the One I love on
every sheet, great for little love notes,
shopping list, or to do lists.

You can never have enough pillows,
these are fun and add some whimsy to any room.
