A walk in the woods – While trying to decide what to do with the top of a coffee table I decided to go for a
walk in the woods. Once it started to rain, I noticed small water rings in the river. I immediately thought of the tables’ surface. I would never have had this idea if I didn’t head for the woods.
6 – Incorporate different materials into your furniture. Rock, copper, hand-made Japanese paper, tile, stainless steel, glass, etc. are all great options. Depending on the material you can add colour, sheen, texture, pattern, functionality or durability as each material has its strengths and weaknesses. Often if you can’t do the work yourself, there is someone that can. Don’t think of working with someone else as a failure; think of it as a collaboration and a learning process.
