  • Eco-Friendly Teak Towel Rack

    Besides attractive graining and an appealing light color, teak is sturdy and naturally weather resistant. That's why we love this teak wall shelf and towel rack for the bathroom. Plus, this eco-friendly design is repurposed from castoff teak wood. Sustainable and so stylish!

  • Glass Tops for Small Spaces

    Got a small room space you want to make the most of?

    Use a glass top or transparent top table.

    These make a room feel larger and less cluttered.

    I especially like the nesting tables that tuck neatly out of the way when not in use.
