This is happening / Stone Textile Wallpaper

photo-20

Next month, we are showing at the Lawndale Design Fair in Houston.  I thought it would be fun to use wallpaper (in our new Deco Stripe Print) for our booth.  This is a test run for what we hope will be an expansion of the fabric line.  Stay tuned–Stone Textile wallpaper is on the horizon!  If you cannot wait and have a project that this would be perfect for please email us at info@stonetextilestudio.com.  Have a wonderful weekend!  xx Elizabeth

An Etagere Story…

Stone Textile_Brass Etaerge

BACKGROUND: Yesterday I posted the photo above on Instagram….I have been looking for a brass 1970′s Etagere for quite some time.  They are hard to find and are usually very pricey. There was a perfect space in the studio for one so I was on a mission.  In September, I was reading a post on Emily Henderson’s blog about Dallas Craigslist finds.  I actually think these posts of hers are genius.  I get it and appreciate how much she enjoys the hunt for unique (and most of the time–brassy) vintage finds.  I haven’t had much luck with the Austin Craigslist so I have always looked  at neighboring cities.  The story continues below…

FOUND: So, four months ago I see this post and knew that I had to act fast as I have never seen a brass Etagere priced at $200 (They usually range from $1200-$2000)  Thanks Emily!

PURCHASED: After purchasing it, we talked with the (very sweet) shop owner and she agreed to hold it for a few months.  I had a work trip planned, in Dallas, at the end of November so we would pick it up then…I also spoke with a ton of delivery services and they were quoting $300+ to pack and drive to Austin.  It killed me that shipping was more then the piece–so that was not going to work!

ISSUES: The photo above is of my poor husband trying to fit this in our SUV.  After an hour of trying to make it work (on a feeder road of a major freeway) we had to give up and only take the glass and the smaller part that sits on the bottom (see below).  It was very sad and frustrating as it did not fit by like an inch.  Not a fun car ride home…

STYLED: Flash forward to this past weekend (only 4.5 months after the purchase was made) we rented a larger car and finally were able to bring it home.  Was it worth it?  I say yes and he of course says no. I know it will grow on him.  I spent some time styling it yesterday and decided to go all neutral.   I love vintage pieces for the stories behind them and now this one definitely has a new story!

Trunk Show Recap: Stone Textile x Saint Cloud

Trunk Show 6

If you follow along on Instagram you are aware that we had a holiday trunk show this past weekend at Saint Cloud Boutique in Houston.  The store interior is just amazing so I had to share a few of the many photos I took of the space.  I also had the pleasure of meeting the interior designer behind this masterpiece — Garrett Hunter–how cool is the ceiling detail?
