William Mize paints dilapidated structures in rich and beautiful colors, bringing life where there previously was none. In his own words: “Like us, these structures are broken but beautiful containing layers and depth for the viewer to contemplate.”

Meredith Ochoa works within digital processes and has developed a scanning process in which the subject becomes the negative. The result is hauntingly beautiful and thought provoking pieces of art.

Surrounding these incredible works of art are curated pieces such as a textured leather chaise, a hand tufted wool rug with pops of citron, concrete and bronze lamps, and (our personal favorite) Bernice the resin black sheep. 

Come to our Fall Open House next Thursday, November 5th from 7-9pm for the full experience. The whole Balance Design team will be on hand to answer any and all questions about our art, custom pillows, featured furniture pieces, and your interior design questions.

As far as Chanukkah decorations go, there is nothing more iconic than the menorah. While the nine candles are a must, the shape and structure of the menorah can be as traditional or unusual as desired. In honor of the festival of lights beginning this week, we’ve rounded up our top five favorite non-traditional menorahs.

Beautiful, elegant, and unexpected, the Manzanita Candelabra from West Elm is a menorah that makes a statement in any setting.

Dog lovers rejoice! Jonathan Adler’s ceramic Dachshund menorah is a fun way to bring your personality into your holiday decor.

If you’re looking for a menorah that breaks from tradition, you won’t find one more modern and innovative than the Molecular Menorah. Its sculptural shape is about as far from the traditional silhouette you can get.

For kids and kids-at-heart, behold the Menorasaurus Rex! A funky and bold option for the festival of lights.

Clean, minimal lines make this eco friendly Green Ludwig menorah an instant classic.

Carrying on the traditions of Chanukkah doesn’t have to mean forgoing style and self-expression. Modern, fun, and expressive menorahs are easier to find now than ever before. Put the “festive” back into “festival of lights” with a menorah that celebrates the holiday and your personality.
