I know I have posted on this before, but with the economy the way it is the need is especially great right now. Families are looking for clean used furniture, working home appliances and help with other basic needs. A local organization, We Do Feet, has been helping local families with these needs for several years.
If you have furniture that is in good repair and no longer needed, please consider donating to We Do Feet. They now have a new website dedicated to their work, which offers more information on what they will accept, how to contact them if you have a need and how to volunteer with the organization. Thanks for considering a donation to a great group!
In the latest issue of Kitchen & Bath Business magazine, I found the latest look in quartz surfaces – patterns! Manufactured by CaesarStone, this product makes use of a polished/unpolished finishing process to produce a pattern in the countertop surface.
Motivo comes in a couple different patterns – an animal print (similar to an alligator skin) and a wallpaper-like damask. According to their website, the product is still non-porous and very low-maintenance. Very interesting look, and something completely different. While it’s not for every client and every space, I can definitely see applications for it!
I think it could be especially interesting in a commercial space – to dress up a boring ladies’ room or spice up a bar. What do you think? Is it something you could see in your home? If so, where would you use it?
