Irwin Weiner ASID - I risk straying a bit from our home design beat, but stay with me a moment! I love collections when it comes to interior design; collectibles can be grouped in tablescapes, small displays, and used everyday to insert more personality and quirkiness into your living space.
D2S TIP2SHARE: Look for something specific to collect, then plug an appropriate search term - like "Victorian walking sticks" - into eBay or do an online search and begin purchasing. Items can be large or small, and we wanted to show you today's featured video from Monumental Adventure about NYC's most amazing button store ever, Tender Buttons. Small and unique buttons, both old and new, would make fantastic decor accents, don't you think? Some coffee tables allow you to display flat objects under a glass or lucite top, and a button collection would look amazing. Individual buttons mounted on fabric and framed in small, elegant frames would make a stunning wall grouping!
MORE BUTTONS: Watch our Design2Share video about a trip to our favorite 2010 home goods retail store, Two Buttons, the Asian imports shop started by best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert and her husband Jose.
