Where all things beautiful collide

Decorative boxes are something I’ve liked for quite sometime.  They’re one of my favorite things to style a coffee table with, and I use them often to conceal clients’ television remotes, which I hate seeing.  These boxes need not be filled with anything, but they are great for things like playing cards, pens, and, well jewelry of course!  Stack one, stack two, or stack three…the more the merrier as far as I’m concerned.  Stores like West Elm always have pretty and affordable ones, but if you’re really looking for a unique and stunning piece, look no further than Creel and Gow for boxes carved from semi-precious stones, and designer Kelly Wearstler’s ‘Bauble’ boxes, which she hand selects the stones for.  I would happily own all of them!  Many of my favorite designers, like Jeffrey Bilhuber and Steven Gambrel, also love styling with stacks of boxes from all over the world.  This would be something great to collect on your travels, because it seems almost every culture has their version of the jewelry box.  I also covet tiny boxes from Line Vautrin, Eduardo Garza, and others.  Having trouble styling your coffee table?  Add a box or two, a generous stack of books, and a vase of fresh flowers, and done!
