It’s eccentric!

Our New Year’s resolution is to be inspired by anything and everything… and this is very inspiring!!!!!

We’re obsessing over the sculpture made out of various books. What a fun idea!  Go to an antiques store and buy some vintage books. Choose books that you love for some reason- color, design, content- let this piece INSPIRE you. Place them on the wall in any shape, size, or order that you please. The different colors and sizes of the books  will give you an eccentric art piece that’s all your own.

Start creating!

“We are a collection of handmade tiles that can turn any mundane surface into a work of art”

JohnWhitmarsh

John Whitmarsh’s new collection of tiles for Cle is all about breaking boundaries. He has taken the raw, authentic textures of nature and handcrafted each individual tile to create unique tiles with imperfect surafces. His inspiration comes from those surfaces which one often overlooks- telephone poles, rough wood, street signs.  In an Q+A with the “tiles” in Interiors & Sources Magazine, they explain that “John pays homage of the beauty of our imperfections. He loves us just the way we are.” His tiles create a work of art on any surface and will give any space a completely unique look. The tile’s pet peeve? “Narrow-minded silly folks who think that tile needs to be shiny in order to be beautiful.”
