Bud Vases

These sculptural but functional vases, by Hawaii’s born and raised Ryan Takaba, are sure to get noticed! They have great texture, shape and color, as well as being easy to use! Take out the water vessel, add some water in it, put it back in and add your stem!
For now only US shipping is listed, but perhaps it’ll change one day! :)

Fused glass and aluminum meet perfectly to have a wonderful coffee table. By bellaglass at USD$1,999.

A tall free-standing cabinet made of plywood structure, glass doors, concrete base with drawer and aluminum handles would look perfect in any living room. By elemento at USD$950.

A puffy bench is great for your tush… lol! By lunarloungedesign at USD$439.

Wlanut wood and stainless steel make great benches, right? By studio1212 priced at USD$2,300.

Discreet Vinyls

Yes, discreet vinyls as in they blends with your decor!

Small and cute, nicely showed in amazing computer generated rooms (yep, those aren’t real people! Well made, huh?), affordable ($10 US a pop), although no international shipping is available… (International buyers are verrrrry sad right now!) and YAY! International shipping now available! Let’s go crazy, World! :)

TabulaRasa (which means “clean slate”) is a wife and husband initiative. They are also new Etsy sellers (this week!), so hopefully we can expect new goodies in the shop soon! :)
