DO IT YOURSELF HEADBOARD

Having moved to a new apartment in desperate need of decoration, I decided to do the major part of the decoration myself so that my home would actually match my taste! Starting with the bedroom, I already had a bed but no headboard and I wanted something RUSTIC yet modern. For this purpose to be achieved, I had to look for some fashionable and frugal WALL TILE. Being concerned about going green, what I googled was ECHO FRIENDLY WALL TILE, and there I got to learn about RECLAIMED WOOD WALL TILE.To my amazement, not only is this kind of wall tile made of RECYCLED WOOD, but also there is a mystic story behind each tile that is made of old BARN WOOD or HARD WOOD.

Another astonishing factor was rough, uneven, unique look that would simply make any wall look artistic! Being a single woman, to me it was really important for the installation to be easy enough to be done without the help of a professional. You cannot imagine how happy I was to find out that there were different kinds of RECLAIMED TILES that can be installed really easily. As the instruction said,  for a MASH BACK kind, I just had to apply a layer of MASTIC GLUE and press each tile on the wall and hold it for a couple of minutes.

The last but not least important factor for me was the size and shape of the tiles. Like I said, I only wanted headboard area to be covered, and I did not want the tiles to be too big so I would have to cut them, nor too small so the installation would be difficult. I finally found out about GLOBAL TRENDS that specially CUSTOMIZED the tiles as ordered. I ordered the kind of tiles I needed after measuring the area that was to be covered                                                          .Bark_wood Maize_tile

It was such an easy job and I feel so proud of myself having done that! everybody compliments my new wall decoration! I just love my new DO IT MYSELF HEAD BOARD! thank you GLOBAL TRENDS!

Resin

Customer testemonial :

I really enjoy using resin panels in my kitchen cabinets door instead of glass. They brought warmth and nature to the living space where I spent most of my time as a house wife. I worked with Global Trends a company located in Kansas. They are able to create lighting, furniture, and or even kitchen counter tops using resin panels. Use them framed in the deeper natural wood or drop them from the ceiling with Global Trends customized hardware with back lighting. The natural elements themselves are so warm and inviting, I feel the nature next to me when I have no time for nature. Resin panels are all made by hand and are imported, so it takes a little longer and is a bit more involved, but Global Trends has most of the resin panels instock or can order it with lead time of one week for less than 4 sheets and a little bit more for bigger orders.  I can’t stop feeling and looking at them “gorgeous!”

You can have any natural elements imbedded into resin panels for use as kitchen or bathroom cabinet inserts. Can you imagine bringing nature to your living space from African paddock to sea shells, interlayered in resin panels? You can use translucent resin panels for room dividers, stairway guard rails or around the swimming pool , cabinet inserts and tons of other purposes.

Add your own favorite image or digital picture to resin glass and create a  personalized memory. Bring to your living space a contemporary design using simple natural elements.

 Farah ‘s input :

Designers and architects are inspired to create beyond the imagination using resin panels . The nature-inspired resin panels help customers create their own sense of designs without too much explaining. Create unique partitions, doors, wall features, ceiling features and more using these wall panels.

LED Cherry Blossom Tree Lighting for Special Occassions

 New to the lighting scene is the LED lighting. An LED gives off pure light in a rainbow of colors. LED lights are energy efficient, bright and are cooler than traditional bulbs. Another great thing about LEDs is that each LED has its own light and is independent of others in a series. If one light on the strand goes out, the rest of them continue to work!
The most ingenious LED product Global Trends carries is the LED Tree Lighting. The great thing about LEDs is that they are extremely efficient. They also run cooler and last so much longer than traditional bulbs. However, I think my favorite thing about LEDs is that if one bulb burns out, the rest stay lit! How many times have you wrapped Christmas lights around a tree or your porch, have one go out, and then have no light?! These bulbs are so advanced you can replace them individually.
LED Cherry Blossom Tree-Multicolor
LED cherry blossom tree lighting comes in 10000 Bulbs and 3000 Bulbs version with heights of 14 feet and 9 feet. There are plenty of colors available for LED cherry blossom tree lighting, the colors that are currently in demand include blue, orange, purple and green. Multicolor LED cherry blossom trees are my favorite and I personally recommend it to all Clients.
LED Palm Tree Lighting
The most ingenious LED product Global Trends carries is the LED Tree Lighting. The great thing about LEDs is that they are extremely efficient. They also run cooler and last so much longer than traditional bulbs. However, I think my favorite thing about LEDs is that if one bulb burns out, the rest stay lit! How many times have you wrapped Christmas lights around a tree or your porch, have one go out, and then have no light?! These bulbs are so advanced you can replace them individually.
So many people have been raving about these trees! They are gorgeous LED trees, shaped like Cherry Blossoms, Willows, Orange, and Palm trees. In addition to the traditional style trees, Global Trends has a group of fiber optic LED trees as well. My favorite is definitely the huge green Christmas tree. A combination of green fiber optic LEDs and traditional Cherry Blossom LEDs, it is just begging to be covered in ornaments to reflect its light! Here as part of a limited edition, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
The attention to detail doesn’t end with the placement or technology in the lights. Each metal trunk is
not just painted, but wrapped in a rubberized “bark” that looks like the real thing, and protects the tree
from the elements.
Designed for indoor or outdoor usage, the trees come with their own electrical transformer. The trees
will look great on a deck or “planted” out in your yard!

Oggetti Pendant Lighting – Bijoux Graffiti and Miro

Ever since Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity, we’ve been harnessing it to warm our homes and see in the dark. As technology evolved, lighting has evolved with it. Today, we’re lucky to have so many choices in lighting, including traditional incandescent bulbs, fluorescent bulbs and LEDs.
Global Trends is proud to be a distributor for Oggetti Lighting. Gorgeous hanging fixtures that are hand painted to give off a warm glow in any atmosphere. These lights are perfect in restaurants, lobbies, dining areas, anywhere lighting is necessary.
Oggetti was founded in 1975 by Robert and Nancy Frehling. The Frehlings were already operating Nessa Gaulois in Miami, one of the finest gift, accessory and bridal stores. Their retail exposure made  them keenly aware of the preferences of affluent retail customers as well as the needs of the store owner. This  has informed their decision-making and product selection for Oggetti, keeping them always up-to-date and market-savvy.
Originally the entire collection was imported from Italy and marketed solely under the “Oggetti” trademark. In fact, the word “oggetti” means “objects” in Italian and is used to describe accessories for the home. In 1980 Oggetti began a furniture division, using “Tavola” as the trade name under the Oggetti umbrella. While many people attempt to copy Oggetti, they do so without the name of the artist, with objects often noticeably less attractive and rarely at better prices. Oggetti works closely with their stable of artists and craftsmen and continually strives to represent the best to their discerning customers.
Oggetti has a variety of products crafted and artistically designed on glass. Global Trends offers some unique collections of lighting masterpieces from Oggetti:
Product Name: BIJOUX GRAFFITI PENDANT
