Maybelline Te of Snug Furniture and Tracy Hiner of Black Crow Studios collaborated to create this amazing custom wallpaper for the backdrop to the Snug Furniture booth at the Architectural Digest Home Show. They met on Twitter and have been friends ever since.

Eye-catching and effective, the wallpaper not only exhibits Tracy Hiner’s tremendous talent for translating a unique subject to paper but also beautifully showcases the design process for many of the furniture pieces that were not shown in the booth.

Maybelline Te describes the Snug Furniture line as “furnishings for the modern urban lifestyle”. See more at Snug Furniture

Tracy Hiner states that Black Crow Studios “pushes the traditional idea of wallpaper into the realm of Art”.  For more see Black Crow Studios

Fortunately, Stacy of Quintessence and Carmen of The Decorating Diva took great photos of the Snug booth. I was far too busy catching up with Tracy and May to remember to take out my camera. We were “air” designing a custom wallpaper for a girl’s bedroom. I will let you know when it comes to fruition.

I love to hear from you. If you could design your own wallpaper that expresses who you are, what would it look like?


Interior Design: Thursday Treasure is Snug Furniture at ICFF

On Monday, I snuck away from my office for a few blissful hours to see the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).  It was interior design nirvana – I learned so much and saw so many amazing design ideas in those few hours.

I also met a whole group of Twitter friends IRL for the first time: @tkpleslie @maybellinete @tracyhiner and @sweetsoaps to name a few.  The last few weeks have been a social media meets real life extravaganza.  It has been so much fun to put faces to the names.  Great to see social media friends working together to make things happen in the interior design world.

There are far too many great designers from ICFF to feature in just one post.  Stay tuned for future features.

Today is all about good friend May’s Snug Furniture line.  On a side note, I was thrilled to see Twitter friend Tracy Hiner’s wallpaper as the backdrop to May’s furniture.

The Pugella sofa is a modern reinterpretation of a classic.  Pairing it with the sleek and fun Tattoo Coffee Table makes quite a statement.  The henna “hands” on the table are an exquisite detail and serve t0 enhance the grain of the wood.

May told me on Monday that the Maze Dining Table is my style.  She’s right.

Bambooty Benches

Fun to sit on (once you get the hang of it) and fun to say.  Really, try it.  What could be a more fun story to tell in your home than a Bambooty Bench?  Every home needs a sense of humor.

That’s just a small taste of the treasures that lie in store at Snug Furniture.

Which piece do you want to take home?  I love to hear from you – let me know!
