purpose. beauty. inspiration.

We’ve noticed a trend emerging in the world of design, and that trend is bunching tables! Bunching tables are basically a collection of smaller coffee tables placed together, in place of one large coffee table. This approach to a coffee table allows for more flexibility in a space and can give a more casual feel to a room.

Depending on the style of the tables and how they’re placed, bunching tables can give different looks to each room. They can either sit in close proximity to each other, or they might be designed to overlap. Check out the spaces below for examples of bunching tables!

Which of these rooms is your favorite? Do you see yourself getting on board with this trend? Let us know! And keep an eye on our portfolio, because bunching tables have already started popping up in our projects here and there. 😉

Fireplace Design

The first thing that our clients said they wanted done in their home was re-modeling the fireplace. The original fireplace was in the corner of the room and although functional, wasn’t much of a “wow” factor.

They wanted to keep their existing flooring and already knew that they wanted the fireplace centered in the room with the television above the mantle.

Thankfully our clients had some spare floor tiles which we were able to use where the old fireplace was located. We centered the fireplace in the room, re-finished it in this gorgeous stacked stone and built cabinets and bookcases on either side of it.

We also added a window in the corner of the room where the fireplace was originally located to create total and complete symmetry on the wall.

Furniture Design

After the fireplace re-model was finished, our clients came to us wanting all new furniture for the room! Their style really lends itself nicely to cozy neutrals, so that’s where we went with. The room was designed with texture and homeyness in mind.

Their original furniture layout was the most functional layout for the room, so we kept the layout and replaced all of the furniture pieces.

We hope you enjoyed seeing the transformation of this space as much as we enjoyed creating it!

XOXO,

Rowe Fine Furniture offers a variety of furniture pieces, but we especially love them for their sofas, sectionals, chairs, and beds. They have a wide selection of styles (always a plus!), and the quality of their furniture is exactly what we look for in our furniture dealers.

Another big plus… their Kid-Proof fabric line! This line focuses on cleanability, durability and beauty. Some of the fabrics are even liquid repellent, odor resistant, and UV fade resistant! Because we love designing for clients with kids and pets, we appreciate having fabric options what will withstand their lifestyle. Learn more about Kid-Proof fabrics here.

Rowe is also committed to being environmentally friendly, which we think is awesome. They use eco-friendly manufacturing processes and recycled materials, including 100% recycled paperboard for their arm cardboard material, 97% recycled material for their cotton fabrics, and cushion filler made out of recycled plastic bottles! Read more about Eco Rowe here.

Let us know if you’re interested in getting some Rowe furniture here! We have a Rowe sofa in our office, and you’re welcome to come take a seat while looking through Rowe fabric samples!

Happy New Year! As we start getting back into the swing of things at the office, we’re taking a moment to remember all that has happened at Rebecca Ward Design last year. We finished and photographed some amazing projects, traveled the world, and got to attend some amazing markets and events! It has been educational, hard work, and a whole lot of fun, and we’re excited to share it all with you!

We wrapped up and photographed quite a few projects in 2019! It’s always fun to look back on the work we did, and last year we finished some of our favorite projects to date. The Stylish Suite Retreat even won an award, which was very exciting! The Boho Bungalow and the 80s Glam Getaway were model homes we designed for Bardis Homes – a first for Rebecca Ward Design! We also participated in the Sacred Heart Home Tour again this year. We created a wintery wonderland that transported visitors to a cottage in the woods. Take a look at all the projects below!

The RWD team took some fun trips last year, including locations all over Europe, Hearst Castle, and Napa, to name a few! There were also several camping trips, travels to southern California (including Disneyland shenanigans!), Carmel, and up to Tahoe. We’re a team who loves travel, so of course we’re already busy figuring out where we want to go in 2020, but it sure is fun to look back at all the places we went this year.

In January, we attended the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), which was a first for some of our team! We got to meet with faucet designers to learn about what is up-and-coming in the faucet industry, and we got a sneak peak of all of the new luxury appliances hitting the market! The kitchen and bath design world is constantly improving and evolving which means there was a lot to see!

Here’s to 2020 and everything it has in store for us! We hope it brings you joy and prosperity.
