We have worked extra hard to offer some of the most unique holiday gift selections and holiday decor. Look around in our holiday shop and explore our hand made products that include hand-made/mouth-blown glass ornaments with feathers inside that add a soft light touch to the cool and hard glass ball. We also have feather trees, birchwood bark trees, birchwood bark stars, laser etched snowflakes, laser etched garland, ughhhhhhhh! I'm running out of breath!

Since we're always (and I mean always) in the store we rarely get to see our pieces at their final destination point. So you can understand that we were pretty excited when our friend Chris sent us this picture of the James Lounge Convertible Sofa and the Chicago 8 Shelving Unit in his loft at the Byrne Building Lofts. Also pictured is the Bishop (C) Table over the sofa that wraps around the seat to provide a stable and fashionable setting for you drinks, food or just the remote.

Wikipedia definition: In architecture and structural engineering, a truss is a structure comprising one or more triangular units constructed with straight slender members whose ends are connected at joints referred to as nodes. External forces and reactions to those forces are considered to act only at the nodes and result in forces in the members which are either tensile or compressiveforces. Moments (torsional forces) are explicitly excluded because, and only because, all the joints in a truss are treated as revolutes.

With wine season fast approaching its time to start thinking about how you're gonna present your favorite bottle of grapes to a lucky friend. From across the pond, Bob's Your Uncle brings you an idea for gifting your wine in a clever and humorous way. We all know those snooty little descriptions for wine that we can't seem to comprehend no matter how hard we try. These gift bags bring it down to a witty and funny level that we can all wrap our lips around and not feel left out of the party. With quotes such as "Plummy & STRONG THRUSTING overtones" and "Elegant nose with a LONG SATISFYING FINISH" these gift bags will put a smile on even the most serious of wine enthusiasts. These are actual wine quotes with the emphasis just where it needs to be to liven up the party. Just make sure you put a good bottle of wine in the bag because you don't want the bag to steal the show. Check it out at www.hipsterhome.com

Thank you John Stango and Mimi for the amazing piece of art he painted just for the store. We were very excited to receive our own Stango piece and have the store be immortalized into one of Johns collections. John is an amazing contemporary pop artist that uses iconic images (past and present) and puts his trademark use of color turning them into pop-art masterpieces. We have developed a nice little following of John Stango fans and customers that appreciate his artwork for their simplistic yet fiery images. They also appreciate John's honesty and hard work that have put his artwork in high demand. Stop into Hipster Home and check out our collection of Stango's and other great contemporary pieces, or check them out online at www.hipsterhome.com

Yes, the long awaited introduction of the classic beer glasses by Spiegelau has finally arrived at Hipster Home. Expanding onto our popular Riedel Crystal stemware, we are now proud to introduce Spiegelau platinum crystal classic beer glasses. When you first pick up the glass the first thing you'll notice is its light weight due to the lead-free crystal. I know, I know, you're gonna say that I've been preaching so long about the benefits of crystal in your barware. And that philosophy still holds true. But Spiegelau is different due to its platinum process while in its molten state that gives these glasses their strength and clarity. The magic in these glasses still gets down to basic physics. The glasses are specifically designed to increase the heavy beer ingredients into the bottom of the glass which narrows at the bottom. This narrowing of the base increases the glass pressure at the bottom and pushes up the CO2 and unleashing more of the beers specific quality ingredients. Not to mention it may just be the sexiest beer glasses in the world. Can you imagine......... a beer glass that's sexy. It just may be the last beer glass you'll ever own!

If you don't know, Hipster Home has Riedel Glass tasting / comparisons every Friday night in the store. Why you say? Because experience the difference a proper wine glass makes in your wine tasting is the only true way to understand. We can tell you how the 24% lead crystal in Riedel glasses has a rougher textured surface than glass so that when you swirl your wine over the crystal, those rough edges agitate the wine which aerates the wine by separating the alcohol off of the body of the wine enhancing the flavor of the wine.
