High-style, guilt-free design finds from around the web:

THOU SHALL NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR’S CREDENZA
It’s Credenza Frenza this week over at SFGirlbytheBay. A wonderful collection of sinfully beautiful vintage modern credenzas gathered from fashionable flickr members. I’ll entice you with a few personal favorites of the bunch, but definitely check out the full set.

A vintage teak credenza on casters found on ebay.
The DWR chair is another chic second-hand find.
This fabulous Paul McCobb Credenza is a midcentury masterpiece circa 1949.
Another gorgeous vintage credenza on ebay.

FANTASTIC PLASTIC
Oh the things you can make from a single sheet of plastic.

THE NEW OTTOMAN EMPIRE

This is perhaps the easiest DIY project ever. Who would have thought you could make whimsical ottomans out of those vinyl zipper bags that once contained the down comforter or “bed in a bag” you bought? Designers for Karastan did just that. They filled the company’s used storage bags with recycled materials, like old newspapers and packing peanuts. Instant seating.

TOTALLY TUBULAR
Here’s another take on designing chairs from cardboard tubes. The Long Winerack Chair by Retur Design, is made completely from recyclable cardboard, and will run you about $426.

    Hi!
    After browsing your site, I was wondering what you recommend for a framed print site. Lately I’ve been browsing at Imagekind.com and finding some cool prints for my home. Love the site!

  2. 2 Fabulously Green

    Good question. For hip, “green” options I’d recommend Etsy for affordable indie prints. I love mixed media paintings by rachelaustin, photographs by Alicia Bock, illustrations by matteart and red heather.

    Other places to try:
    Velocity Art + Design
    Amenity Home

    Other suggestions anyone?
