Industrial Steel Furniture

This year old line of stunning brushed steel cabinets and coffee table has been a huge hit with the Industrial & Retro crowd. The lines and starkness is simply fantastic.... and if you've been browsing a lot of magazines lately, you might remember seeing these beauties in a number of ads and featured design projects. The downfall is they have to be ordered... so pre-planning by several months is neccessary.... but they are worth it!

JCHS2 – Amazing - A fantastic small cabinet in brushed steel. So retro. 34" H x20" D x 54" L. $5995
JCHS1 - Stunning – a highly brushed steel coffee table. H-16 x W-33 x L-51. $2795

JCHS3 – Fantastic – The matching lamp table. H-25.5" x D-20" x L-18". $2895
JCHS4 – Speechless. The brushed steel wall cabinet. H-34 x D-20 x L-67. $6250

Pearls, Pearls and more Pearls

Pearls, tons of beautiful freshwater pearl jewelry! My better half - Adele is the rep for a pearl manufacturing company and aside from wholesaling them to retail stores she decided we should sell them online too. Yep, I'm now in biz with my honey. So, we took some photo's, made a site and here the are.

Our site, Pearls by Fox specializes in Freshwater 8mm 60" strands of rope pearls, keshi, coin and stick pearls. We have necklace and bracelet and earring sets. Prices range from $80 to $165. Later this summer we will offer Akoya, Tahitian and South Sea pearls too! As a guy, jewelry has never interested me... but for some reason, I am falling for pearls. I think it is because of their individual character.. .the colors, shapes, sizes, weight and the way they feel. Regardless, please enjoy. And if you want any, Adele's email is at the bottom of the page.

Gorgeous stick pearls. We have them in white, pink, green, black, silver, gray, beige, light brown and bronze. The pink pearls are amazing.

An elegant 60" rope of 8mm White, Black and Gray pearls. Note the luster and deep sheen. Stunning. $165

This 18" large stick pearl necklace, bracelet and earring set is $155... and if you only want the necklace, it is $85.
