Site: Natural Curiosities Studio by Lynnea Schwieters


Natural Curiosities Art House, is an archive of beautiful images from the early 1900's and creates fine modern art. Art house indeed, I felt as I had journeyed into another land.

boho-retro style sunken seating area greeted me as I walked in. Furniture was mixed, some pieces from BoBo and Cisco filled the room. Others were vintage and some were custom designs; made and crafted with love by the 25 or so designers and artists employed by Christopher Wilcox. Wilcox is every bit as kind and thoughtful as you'd expect. Every piece displays an element of nature or takes an inanimate object and turns it into something beautiful. The subject may not be out of the ordinary but, but a touch up and a tweek there, or a exquisitely framed multitude (think more is more), or hand done gold leafing and the piece is given a new life. Follow Natural Curiosities on Instagram here. Their newest venture, WILCOX, is interior design driven and thrilling as well - I am excited to see what their future holds.

The floor lamp. oh my the floor lamp.

Love the shape of these bar stools and the colors in the rug. I'm really loving green right now. Must be fall.
