angelique bacia

How could Angelique Bacia not be an artist with a name that translates to “angelic kisses”? She chose to settle in the Phoenix area after spending several years in Europe. Her abstract expressionist oil paintings begin with her focused on a specific positive feeling, such as confidence or joy or fun - unless she sees a rug with fantastic colors, then all bets are off! Angelique also tries to be more eco-friendly, using water mixable oils in metal tubes, metal tools instead of paint brushes, and 100% cotton canvases.

LAN art&design

LAN art&design was started with the idea of finding inspiration through my love for traveling, nature, and my every day surrounding environment, and then incorporating that love into my work. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. Being born and raised in Eastern Europe and exploring life in the United States gives a unique cultural twist and eclectic vision to each piece. All of my work is 100% original and can be customized to your liking, ranging from neutral to a bright pop of colors. I work with alcohol ink, acrylic and mixed media.

LumberLust Designs creates one-of-a-kind furniture and decor using reclaimed urban hardwoods. Our mission is to create bold statement, heirloom quality furniture that celebrates what nature has to offer by re-using valuable natural resources and turning them into rustic modern practical art.  As cities expand and concrete goes vertical and population rises, trees tend to disappear to make room. We work together with local saw mills to try and rescue these trees and carefully process them into beautiful slabs that we turn into furniture. The combination of rustic wood slabs supported by clean mod metal elements can re-introduce a sense of uninterrupted nature into a space. They also offer a 15% discount when you mention Local Trade!

OLIVIA'S SMILE DECOR

Olivia's Smile Decor was born in 2014 with the birth of our first granddaughter, Olivia, and a tugging on my heart that God was using my experience in the decade prior to prepare me for such a time as this.  I spent most of my career working for two very large retailers managing seasonal programs and assisting vendors in developing production and shipping efficiencies. Naturally, I am passionate about running the most efficient processes in my own business and using high quality fabrics with fun designs and interesting colors to make gorgeous pillow covers. All fabric is purchased from retailers and wholesalers in the United States, and all production is done from my clean, smoke-free studio in Phoenix, AZ on heavy duty industrial sewing machines. I love to add detail like invisible zippers, contrasting or complementing trim, and professionally finished edges. I also love to showcase with color, and pick colors and designs that are on trend and make a room bright with character, reflecting my clients' personalities.
