#1 – First up, some gorgeous lanterns in an array of rainbow colors. The bestselling Hobnail Lanterns are cute as can be. Utilizing colored glass with an iridescent sheen, they’re a vintage-style item turned chic. Buy a bunch, pop in some candles, and create your own mood lighting. At only $15 each, they beat the price (and style) of the popular candles most of us buy out of habit.
#2 – Aren’t these Cloverleaf Accent Tables by Global Views fabulous? The website says they take their inspiration from the mineral malachite. The green and black swirl effect is truly stunning topped with gloss lacquer and contrasted with the modern polished-steel spindle legs. Available for $285.00, this is a great buy.
#3 – We’re all over the map with our choices today, but that’s the fun of Modern Chic Home – you get such a different assortment of goods than many other sites, and they span a wide range of styles. This Emma Tea Service Collection goes beyond charming with shiny teal- and aqua-glazed stoneware in a round, ample shape. I wouldn’t have thought to offer the teapot in one color and the cup/saucer in a different shade, but I’m glad they did, and I love that they’re microwave and dishwasher safe. $12 for a teacup and saucer, $24 for the pot.
#4 – Look at these! Glazed-ceramic Geometry Oval Bottles, also by Global Views, come in two sizes. At $108 and $175, some of us will have to settle for just one. They’re big, though, at 22-1/4” or 29-3/4”, so they offer a lot of impact for the buck. The bowl is available at $108.
#5 – Mirrors do so much for a home, and this one is unusual enough to dictate a room’s style. I’m surprised to find the Architectural Mirror offered for only $130.00. It’s something I’d expect to find in a reputable antique or salvage shop for big dollars. The distressed-look turquoise-green finish is expertly applied, resembling a beautiful patina.
#6 – And, finally, a seasonal selection – spring is in the air! The unique ceramic Blossoming Bud Low Vase is on sale at $55.00, and I think you’ll agree it’s special. Each little flower is crafted by hand, then attached to the base to create this wonderful layered look. You won’t find anything else like this.
