Funky Furnishings! Fab Finds!

Every once in a while here on the Object Mythology (OM) blog, I get to say something I never thought would come out of my mouth – or type something I never imagined would be typed by my fingertips – whichever. This is one of those moments: Ahem.

Today’s blog post is sponsored by horse legs, goat fur, rams’ heads, a little alpaca, and an owl in a pear tree. Fine, no tree. It just sounded good. Moving on.

Guaranteed not to gallop away while you’re eating.

Still with me? Alrighty. Today we’re taking a look at the Room Furnishings section of the OM shop, and there are some seriously funky, fabulous finds in there. First up: A Limited Edition table by Argentine artist Carlos Bissolino. The Horse Table is a handcrafted piece with these really fantastic, equestrian-inspired legs you just have to see to believe. The whole piece is a phenomenal work of art.

Next up: The Wild Wooly Bench. Covered in genuine goat fur, this mid-century-inspired bench is just so cool it goes pretty much wherever it wants. Hallway, foot of the bed, hip living room: this one can fit in just about anywhere. The same goes for this super cool pair of vintage ram’s head bookends. Solid brass, this amazing pair is perfect on an office bookshelf holding up your Vonnegut collection, but just as much at home on your coffee table amid the style mags.

Like napping with an alpaca, only quieter.

Of course, the bookends also look cool with the other brass item in today’s pickings: Mr. Owl. If you’ve been following the OM blog, you know I absolutely love this little guy, and if I worked in the order department, I’d probably lie and tell everyone he’s already been sold because I really want him for my office.

Last, but most certainly not least today, we have the Suri Alpaca Fur Pillow. The one on the site is gorgeous in this fantastic caramel, but you can call the OM team and request other colors and sizes because we’re flexible like that.

Have a question? Email us, post to Facebook, or send us a letter if you can find a store that still sells stamps.

Toasty warm and snuggly to boot!

Can you believe it’s only ONE month until Mother’s Day? If the wonderful women in your life are anything like those who influenced my upbringing (and shouldn’t we honor ALL of them on Mother’s Day?

Upcycled Elegance: From Buenos Aires Flea Markets to Your Powder Room

Well, it’s April. APRIL 2012. Already. I’m still dating my checks 1999 and signing them with my maiden name, but I’m slow to accept change. Sue me. Anyway, April means a few things: Taxes, Earth Day, Easter, Passover, Administrative Professionals Day, and, perhaps most importantly, my birthday. What do these things have in common? They’re [...]

A Little Art Lesson

Fab Furnishings From La Feria!

Whoever "they" are, they just don't make things like this anymore.

If you follow the OM blog (and you should), you know by now that I am no decorator.

Who We Help And Why We Do It

One of my favorite authors of all time, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once said, “It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” I’ve seen the quote in a few different forms around the Internet, of course, as there’s nothing like the web for [...]

Vintage is The New Retro: Chic Jewelry For That Unique Finishing Touch

For a while now, we’ve seen the retro trends come and go in both fashion and home décor. We’ve seen nearly every major furniture manufacturer pushing some sort of retro design, whether it’s a laminate and vinyl kitchen table and chairs or a 60s-inspired, low-backed living room sofa. Personally, I have some really fond memories [...]
