Enjoy the Benefits of

Design Diaries...

Brought to you by Anissa Swanzy of SKD Studios

Design Diaries is a bi-weekly segment; meant to inspire, influence and educate homeowners that are ready to make a change to their homes but just don’t know where to start.

Furniture Trends in 2013...It’s all about vintage! Vintage by definition usually refers to wine, but when relating to furniture, it speaks of an era. The art of taking something old and making it new again. This trend has been around for a long time but in the past year it has taken main stream. Flea market finds and estate sales are the new “great furniture stores” taking an old piece and painting it, distressing it or recovering it breathes new life into the piece and makes a statement. Large retailers like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware have taken notice and now offer “one of a kind finds” on their websites. Gone are the days that we want our home to look like a catalog or a showroom floor. We all want our unique style to show through and there is no better way to do that then to find a one of a kind piece. Even Pottery Barn doesn’t want to look like “Pottery Barn” anymore! At SKD Studios we recognize the need to offer our clients one of a kind, individualized designs and we have taken notice of the vintage world and love it! Look for some exciting news coming soon that will change the way Southern Maryland shops for furniture!
