Designer Knockoffs are nifty, newsy, eco-friendly

Trending now on the American interior decoration scene are names like Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel, West Elm, Ballard Designs, and Anthropologie. At both their online shops and "brick and mortar" counterparts, you'll find enticing collections of quirky, eye-catching furniture, light fixtures, art, and accessories. Each in its own way, these emporia reflect today's trend away from a stiff, overly formal, "decorated" look. Instead pieces are more individual and approachable, with a lived-in, ethnic, or country farmhouse flair. Bold colors mingle comfortably with cool neutrals and coordinating patterns, while rustic materials such as burlap, chalkboards, jute or hemp twine, and reclaimed wood play a strong supporting role.
