design trend: Mid-century Modern Design Series: Bar Carts - 10/29/13 04:57 AM
Design2Sell’s Mid-Century Modern series continues with a staple item of this trend- Bar Carts. Bar carts keep barware and alcohol on hand for easy access while entertaining, and are often used for an extra storage spot for accessories. These carts were highly popular during the height of the mid-century era. Today bar carts recall the clean-lined aesthetic of the 1950s and '60s and add an extra flare to a room. They radiate elegance and chicness and have become quite popular again.
 Below are a few bar carts Design2Sell is inspired by. Tell us what you think!

Design2Sell’s Mid-century Modern Design continues with Patterns & Textures.  This trend really embraces clean lines, geometric shapes, graphics and vivid colors such as the primary colors -red, yellow and blue combined with white or black.

design trend: Design Trend: Hiding the TV - 01/30/13 09:58 PM
Design2Sell has taken notice of all the clever and creative ways designers are utilizing this trend. With Televisions becoming flatter and thinner it has become much easier to put our TVs in different locations. Some basic places would be on a TV stand/entertainment center, in an armoire or an top of a fireplace. Now people are doing away with having the TV visible entirely and making it completely disguiseable by having them slide up out of counter tops and hiding them behind frames. Here are a few clever example of how Televisions are being disguised...
