A Well-Traveled Space

2171-SOCIAL-Beauty-Blend

 

 

 

At Wisteria, we are ever inspired by travel. We traverse the globe in search of unique pieces that exude the personality of their country of origin. The absolute best part of collecting such charismatic pieces is blending them all together to create inspired spaces. Interested in recreating this traveled look?

We have a few tips to get you started!   T12300_04

Begin with traditional pieces that have European sophistication. We recommend a couple of our Gustivian Tub Chairs—they’ll anchor your space with timeless style.

Corinthian Capital Table

Then, add in unexpected elements of classical architecture like our Corinthian Capital Table.  Deco Corners Mirror

It dually serves as a element of beauty and function, while it hints of exotic textures too. Our Deco Corners Mirror, featuring a stylistic twist on Chinese fretwork, will add a golden glimmer of antiquity to any wall or mantel.

Gold Greek Key Pillow

Pillows are always the perfect finishing touch! Pair a bold color that reminds you of your favorite sunset abroad with a fierce animal print. Then throw in a couple of these Gold Greek Key Pillows for a unique, collected look.

The compact nature of this bench also lends itself to being a fixture in any entryway or corridor. It’s ideal as a stylish place to slip your shoes on and off as you come and go. Slide some baskets under it for a little extra storage—an easy way to corral unsightly objects that tend to gather in these areas.

The slipcovers are available in five colors, making this bench perfect for anyone who loves to update their space frequently. Keep it traditional with Natural or try it in Royal Blue for an instant pop of color!

Why Did the Chicken Really Cross the Road?

Does the age old question of why the chicken crossed the road really have an answer?  We needed to know if there was a legitimate response out there aside from the usual “to get to the other side.”  So here are the results of our extensive research to finally put this lingering question to rest.

 

Albert Einstein: The chicken did not cross the road. The road passed beneath the chicken.

Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross roads.

Stephen Hawking: Chicken fluctuations will inevitably create a scenario where a chicken ends up on the other side of the yellow line, in which case there is a nonzero probability that it will escape to the other side.

Plato: For the greater good.

Aristotle: To actualize its potential.

Buddha: If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken-nature.

Darwin: It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

Emily Dickinson: Because it could not stop for death.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: It didn’t cross the road; it transcended it.

Henry David Thoreau: To live deliberately… and suck all the marrow out of life.

Oscar Wilde: Why, indeed? One’s social engagements whilst in town ought never expose one to such barbarous inconvenience—although, perhaps, if one must cross a road, one may do far worse than to cross it as the chicken in question.

Hamlet: That is not the question.

Martin Luther King:

Did you find an answer that satisfies your need to know exactly why the chicken crossed the road?  Maybe you have a better answer?  We would love to hear it!
