unique home finds

Sometimes, you just want to have a little fun with your home décor style. For some of us that means adding small splashes of color in accent pillows or wall art. For others, that means seeking out the most unique and quirky pieces of furniture and décor they can find. We love having fun with our furniture here at Homemakers! We carry some off-the-wall pieces you may not even have known about.

Cool and unusual home décor is great way to show off the quirkier side to your personality or a simple way to have fun in your styling. We say dream big and colorful! We’ve pulled together just a few of our favorite eye-catching pieces.


Unique Home Finds: Kid Bedroom Ideas

A kid’s bedroom is the easiest room in the house to have fun with style. Kids are pretty open to having fun and unusual furniture in their rooms! Watch their eyes light up when they finally get the fun bunk beds they’ve been begging for or treat your burgeoning athletes to rooms that remind them of their favorite sport.

Who said bunk beds have to remind you of summers spent in an outdated camp cabin? The Coaster bunk bed is the perfect choice when your little one is begging for bunk beds but you want something stylish. The tubular metal frame is cool and sophisticated while seamlessly integrating not one, but two ladders for easy access to the top bunk.

For the athlete begging for a loft bed, the Powell Hoops bed comes with an NBA-sized hoop and net with a whiteboard to keep score and a built-in desk and shelving (so that work actually gets done). The metal frame is high-pressure laminated for durability and strength, so you can rest easy knowing it will last.

If you’re looking for smaller décor or a storage unit to add to your child’s bedroom, the Powell Goal Keeper locker is the best of both. Store games, clothes, toys or even sports equipment in this heavy-duty metal locker.


Unique Home Finds: Quirky Tables

If you want to add some fun furniture to your space without going too crazy, we recommend a quirky occasional table. It’s easy to add to an established living space and surprisingly easy to style. We chose three of our favorites to show the range of style options available.

You’ll never run out of conversation starters with the Hammary tree trunk end table. We guarantee guests will think you have a real tree stump in your living room. It is sturdy enough for you to set a lamp, reading materials and other necessities on top. If you have an organic, casual living room it literally does not get any more earthy than this.

If edgy, modern style is more your speed than the structural Bennett Pointe sofa table needs to find a place in your home. A floating top, suspended shelf and asymmetrical form are absolute showstoppers. The dark finish and metal frame make this perfect for a rustic or casual space but we think it would also add texture to a modern space.

Gone digging for fossils lately? We did. The Magnussen Ponte Vedra table is crafted from rough-cut Mactan fossil stone and polished Pastor fossil stone. Macton stone is sourced exclusively from Mactan Island in the Philippines making this a unique addition to your living room. The table is natural, architectural and can double as art for your space.


Unique Home Finds: Cool Living Room Furniture

Unique décor and furniture may be easier to find and use than you think. Start small with living room and home office furniture like bookcases or TV stands.  Didn’t think you could make a TV stand fun? Think again! The Hammary Structure stand is actually an easel. Hammary has taken a classic artist’s easel and added mounting brackets, an open media shelf and the ability to adjust the height.  We love the unique concept and the industrial style evident in the pewter-finished hardware and rich wood finish.

A cool bookcase is an easy way to convey your personality without going too crazy in style. The circle bookcase from Stylecraft is unique and the perfect deviation from a traditional bookcase. Four open shelves are crafted from reclaimed wood for a distressed look while the outer circular frame has X-shaped details that draw the eye.

Spotlight lamps are everywhere right now! They are so fun and immediately draw attention as a gorgeous way to liven up a space in a new way. The Imax Kaden lamp is one our favorites. The dark wooden tripod base and sleek stainless steel lamp head are versatile enough to suit most styles and color palettes which is why we love it so much! Place it anywhere you would put a floor lamp and see how many comments you get from visitors!


Unique Home Finds: Eye-Catching Upholstery

Okay, you’ve seen our suggestions for subtle and easy ways to add off the wall furniture to your space. Now, who’s ready to go big? Colorful upholstery is bright, it’s bold and it’s Jungalow-approved.

Jonathan Louis is well-known for not only chic mid-century modern furniture, but also upholstery in vivid colors and patterns. The Nikki loveseat is warm and bright, like adding a little sunshine to your living room!  It would fit right into a Jungalow space with the mid-century form apparent in the tufted back, wide seat, flared arms and dark legs. The accent pillow is in a complementing geometric pattern that adds a pop of personality.

If you like to accent neutral furniture with a fun chair, the Flexsteel Patterson chair is the perfect choice. Flexsteel crafts some of the most durable furniture with their blue steel spring construction. In addition to the longevity of this piece, it will also add the bright color you’re looking for with the zesty green hue and fun accent pillows. The best aspect? The Sunbrella upholstery is stain-resistant!

If you’re going to add color to your living room, you might as well go all the way, right? The England Yonts sofa is a warm pink is actually pretty versatile- keep the floral accent pillows for spring and summer and swap them out for velvet or faux fur pillows in the fall and winter. The Greek key arms are an upscale detail that we love.
