This is our first sponsor store review! Greentea Design contacted us and I can’t even tell you how excited I was – the second I saw their name I knew who they were – this is the Asian furniture company that did Kim’s kitchen makeover from DesiretoInspire (only one of my absolutely favorite design blogs!) So yes, when they asked about advertising I pushed the sponsor store review option. I love their stuff, so why not?
Greentea Design does gorgeous Asian inspired wood furniture and kitchen cabinets (like Kim’s). The woods they use are all recycled – taken from the beams of century old buildings in Korea (mainly Gingko and Elm). The furniture is also handmade using traditional Japanese joinery techniques. This is some really nice stuff.
The kitchen island, above, has hand-forged handles and lovely little niceties like the side ladder detail.
I am not a fan of TV Stands – I prefer TVs hidden away in a TV armoire (although admittedly I have a TV stand because Israel has a serious dearth of options for TV armoires). But I do love the lattice detailing of this TV stand – it means you can have all of your components inside and you don’t have to slide open the door and expose everything to change the channel. Plus the lattice sliding doors keep the piece from looking heavy.
Fortunately, they also have TV Armoires on offer. The Mizuya model, above, is big enough to store all that you need, and includes interesting visual elements so that your TV storage isn’t just a big brown wall of cabinets.
Love this table, love the stool-chairs, love it love it love it. I noticed on my trip in the US in August that the shabby chic style is losing its luster (which fits because it’s finally arrived in Israel) and if you love things that look old and have character this is a great way to go, although, I would probably do the stools on one side and chairs with backs on the other. Backless on both sides limits your options when it comes to diners (example – my 73 year old mother).
I also went through their site and picked some of my favorite pieces, below:
I want. I want. I want.
