Sometimes, you just get tired of looking for that perfect piece at the same places over and over and over, you know? So you can assume our uncontrollable excitement when we had the pleasure of being  inspired  at the AD Home Show. Particularly,  from the Made section, which features independent designers and makers with impeccable taste. We thoroughly enjoyed wandering the booths pretending all the handcrafted, premium quality, custom designed pieces were totally affordable and within all our clients' budgets.  And we certainly weren't worrying about costs, lead times, minimum orders, or whether or not this particular shade of navy was "too navy" and if it needs a hint of green to truly flow with the rest of the space, etc, etc, etc. It was mostly just a good ol' time appreciating some good ol' talent. 

So, we wanted to share some of our favs from the event. Specifically,  the artists, designers and pieces that stood out to us because of the unique designs, their responsibly sourced materials, or their way ahead of the game sense of style. (Like this rug to your right!? I die.)  Click through to read exactly what we love about each piece!
