This Homune table is a limited addition designed by Michael Young. Mr. Young created the table for the Czech Republic glass company Lasvit. The top is handblown glass with an amber/orange base made of 36 handblown glass fractals with six different designs repeating six times. Lasvit developed special steel molds to create each of the fractals.

So often we play it safe with our color choices in area rugs. Whether you are unsure of how to make a statement with color or you’re stuck in a rut with outdated decorating. An area rug is an easy way to experiment with color and design for any room. By changing a rug in a room the entire room can take on a new updated feel. Remember that a rug is the largest splash of color in any room. Visualize how you want the room to look when finished. Are you a minimalist or do you prefer intense color with a bold pattern. Patterns can be mixed if they are coordinated by color. Items to also consider when purchasing a rug would be your window treatments, furniture and accessories in the room being updated.
