Her pieces are so extraordinary, I would love to own even one of them one day. Don't you love that light filled side table? How ambient! What do you think of her style and designs?

  4. I have a coffee table and 3 rectangular vases by martha sturdy, all in marmalade. They're a great way to add color to a room without being overwhelming. The shapes are simple and lend themselves to a variety of styles. I've mixed my pieces through my modern/spare stage to my current antique/ reclaimed wood phase - they carry through effortlessly.
