Rosanna Ceravolo Design

When looking for larger pieces of furniture, I usually lean toward plain, basic pieces, working on the assumption that something so big should not be the statement piece in a room. After catching a glimpse of this incredible credenza from Rosanna Ceravolo Design, a Melbourne-based design studio founded in 2011, I’ve decided to change my tune: why…

weekly wrap up + rewoven mats

Last week I was walking home from brunch in the city and decided to swing by my favorite Anthropologie store on 5th Avenue. They were having a great sale on tabletop goods, and I ended up leaving with some random odds and ends to spruce up our office desk, which also serves as a dining…

malachite madness

For the past few years, pink and red have been my go-to colors for just about everything Design*Sponge related. No matter what age, place in life or mood I’m in, those colors always make me happy. But over the last six months or so, I’ve found myself subconsciously leaning toward rich greens. Emeralds, teals and…

sans parapluie

juliana at colorblok sent over a link to an incredible artist named lucas rise. based in buenos aires, lucas creates incredible mural-like paintings on furniture that range from psychedelic to tribal-themed. i was blown away by the level of detail in each piece and immediately felt the need to bust out my paints and get…

lena corwin picked up this vintage dresser the other day at brooklyn’s repop warehouse. i was so inspired by her find (it’s such a beautiful piece) that i’m zipcar-ing myself over there later this week. i’m still on a credenza hunt and i’m hoping to nab something along these lines that fits our small wall…

t4 by not neutral

i’m loving this new series of dressers from not neutral. each piece has colorful details like a bright green door or orange drawer- it’s a great way to inject some color into a room without going overboard. the collection is available right here at sparkability for $1800-$3200. not exactly a budget buy but they’re really…

capitol furnishings

i don’t normally go for antiques, but they’re slowly starting to grow on me (to my mother’s delight). these pieces from capitol furnishings caught my eye so i thought i’d share them. i’ve always had a weakness for mirrored furniture, so these side tables and dressers were perfect. capitol also has a nice series of…

atlas is a manufacturer of beautiful, quality wooden furniture. my favorite pieces in their collection are far from new, but i haven’t heard much about them lately so i thought i’d check back in, because sometimes pieces that are built so well continue to look fresh and modern. and these certainly fit that description. run…
