Heywood-Wakefield

Heywood-Wakefield Company was established in 1826 as a producer of wicker and rattan furniture.  They began creating wood furniture during the Arts and Crafts movement with sleek modern designs that continued through the 1930s in the French Art Deco style. They are most well known for their mid-century modern style furniture pieces which are also the most common Heywood-Wakefield items that you’ll find today. My friend Camille has a mid-century Heywood-Wakefield coffee table in her home almost identical to the one below but I know she didn’t spend anywhere close to $900! (remember… estate sales!)

Spider Plants

Plants are a great way to bring life into any room.  Spider Plants are one of the easiest houseplants to grow so if you love plants but don’t have much of a green thumb this is perfect for you! They have beautiful long green and white leaves and reproduce often.  I have three spider plants in my home right now and I love them!  I root and pot the offspring from my plants and give them to my friends and family as gifts.  You can customize your plants in fun pots and it’s a great gift for a housewarming, birthday, etc.  Spider plants can be displayed in hanging pots or on shelves and coffee tables.

You can find spider plants at most nurseries locally. I like Frank Ott Nursery.  You can also find them at Lowe’s and Home Depot.

Here are some easy directions for how to care for spider plants

Chevron

Most of you may associate the word chevron with the Chevron Oil and Gas Company. However, it was originally used in military and heraldry design.  It’s popular among mid-century design and is great for adding a bold statement to any room. This zig zag pattern may seem funky but it can look sophisticated. Just use white or black in place of a second color and you have a clean design look! I recently purchased a chevron rug from Overstock.com and I love it! I now want chevron all over my house!

Check out this free Chevron pattern from Design Sponge.  Here are some other great chevron items that I found!

If you love it as much as I do you can purchase chevron fabric here.
