PODCAST: Leopard, Stoneware & Danish Design: A Few of his Favorite Things. eBay.com's Shawn Henderson Dishes on the Trends in Home Decor. FASHIONTRIBES HOME DECOR BLOG & PODCAST Interview - MP3 File

For anyone who loves design - from the professional insider to the DIY enthusiast - the Home & Gardend section of eBay.com is like a giant candy store that's open 24/7. Their Design Director, Shawn Henderson, is on the front lines, and shares the scoop on the trends & the deals:

LEOPARD PRINTS
"Searches for leopard prints are up 106% for homes," notes Henderson. "While it’s certainly not a new thing – leopard has been in the home for decades & decades – my thought is: use it sparingly! Use it on a chair or pillows, but god forbid, not something like a lampshade."

STONEWARE

"What I’m shopping for, I’m crazy for, is stoneware, jugs & crocks. They are this earthy, off-white color, sometimes with brown along with it. They make the coolest looking objects for home, and they’re practical because they can be used for storage. They have a lovely handmade quality."

DANISH DESIGN
"I’m a big fan of Danish design. My thought is that Danish design transcends the label of a trend. It's smart to purchase things Danish because they hold their value, especially when compared to most of what’s mass produced on the market today."

Some names to look for:

  • Hans Wegner
  • Ole Wancher
  • Kaare Klint

I love the Danish look the best - simple yet elegant and still functional. I'm the practical type I guess.
