This week’s Tuesday Trend is MADE IN THE USA. The true meaning in in the name – all or virtually all things made right here in the USA as regulated by the Federal Trade Commission. This is a popular trend due to the quality and craftsmanship of USA made products. Now, there is nothing wrong with an imported piece, they can truly be beautiful, but from our experience a solid piece made here in the US can withstand the test of time. Whether handmade or partially machine made, these pieces are made with precision, care and authenticity. These manufacturers stand behind their product and believe in creating only the best for companies and clients. This is a growing trend, as people are wanting to buy pieces that last, pieces that can be passed down through generations. American made pieces are often made of solid wood, hand crafted parts and durable finishes. The ability to source these quality, American made products is what makes Beyond The Mill so unique. Our relationships with our skilled craftsmen gives us the opportunities to customize the most beautiful pieces of the utmost quality. Love Made in the USA?

This week’s Tuesday Trend is CUSTOMIZATION. Customization, a well-known adjective in interior design, is when something is, “made or done to order for a particular customer”. Customization in interior design can range from the fabric & detail of a pillow to the entire rendering and creation of a built in basement bar. Custom is such a prominent trend because no two spaces are the same and though we may have common interests, everyone has unique tastes & inspiration. This being said, customization opens the window to blending styles and creating pieces for unique spaces. So long are the days where you are uninspired by the sofa that is the wrong color or the entertainment center that is slightly too big: let us CUSTOMIZE it. At Beyond The Mill Design we have thousands of textiles for custom pieces; including fabrics & trim, wood types/samples, metal options, glass options, paint swatches and so much more! Not to mention, with about 30 years in the industry, the capability to create custom renderings & 3D layouts of your piece(s) or space and then bring them to life using our skilled craftsman and quality companies. Customization is a ‘trend’ that will not and should never fade — it is imperative at times to create specifically for a space and we take pride in the ability to do so. Contact us today to customize and have it your way! http://email@example.com | 703-729-2625
This week’s Tuesday Trend is LIVE EDGE – this style can also be called natural edge. This is where the ‘natural edge’ of wood is used to create a piece of furniture or design. Live edge originated as a mixture of western and rustic styles, but has since expanded to more transitional and modern designs. By leaving the wood in a more natural state it can create a more rustic look, but when adding a glossy finish, a resin detail or metallic legs, the design leans towards modern. From oak, pine, walnut, maple and cherry – there is so much beauty and originality that goes into live edge pieces. No two slabs are the same – making each peace unique. The process of choosing and creating each piece is truly a work of art. It is important to find logs with lots of character (knots, burls and other unique characteristics), cut the slabs and allow time to dry. Live edge pieces can be used for dining tables, accent furniture and mantels. For these pieces, bases can be solid wood, iron, metal or acrylic. At Beyond The Mill Design we love working with Live Edge and have for many years — designing different pieces for clients. We are knowledgeable of the process and design behind different pieces that our skilled Amish craftsmen create. Contact us today to inquire about live edge, we are happy to provide more information and create a unique piece for your home. Email us or call – firstname.lastname@example.org | 703-729-2625.
