Shopping for Treasures

As spring approaches not only do we get to see new pieces on the runways, but new pieces for our homes as well.  One of my favorite (affordable) home decor options is ZGallerie.  Their pieces are always full of personality and usually competitively priced.

Actually, as you read this I may be in Gardenia (just south of LA) checking out their outlet store with a friend.  It is seriously amazing.  They carry current inventory that has been returned or has some sort of defect (often very minor and practically invisible to the naked eye.  We’ve purchased several pieces there and have saved thousands off dollars of the original price.  Like I said- amazing.  Especially if you are like Lukus and myself, operating on a strict budget.  Besides, who doesn’t like a little treasure hunting?!

To prepare myself for today’s excursion I took a look at ZGallerie’s latest offerings online.  And I must admit- they are pretty impressive!  Below are some of my favorite picks from the spring collection.

Celestial Map ($219.95).

Typically I am not a huge fan of ZGallerie’s art- or any mass-produced art for that matter.  This is my exception: a map.  I love maps, but a map of the stars is even better!  My favorite element?  The maps in German.  Yes, Please!

Songbird Tray ($29.95).

Anyone who’s been in my home knows I am a sucker for white lacquer and silver leaf.  Plus trays are wildly functional.  Needless to say even at full price this tray is a must have.  Now, all I have to do is convince Lukus of the same thing.

Union Jack Rug ($299.95).

I am in no way an anglophile.  So if this were in traditional colors I probably wouldn’t give it a second look.  However, by using neutral colors the graphic nature becomes the star of the rug.  This is a great way to add a contemporary edge to any room.

Halloren Vase ($79.99 sale price).

It’s obvious what attracts me to this piece, isn’t it?  I LOVE the texture.  A vase like this is a statement piece- with or without flowers.  I imagine it on a console maybe sitting atop some books.  Lovely.

Sequoia Console Table ($899).

I saved the best for last.  Can you tell?  While this may not be one of the most competitively priced pieces, it is one of the most unique.  Talk about a statement piece!  I am sure it would make a fantastic piece in an entrance or even behind a sofa.  Just be careful that it isn’t laden with other ornate pieces or you may end up with a gaudy mess.
