FOR THE LIVING ROOM

Wall Street Journal interviewed several designers and they stated that the perfect pieces for your home should have perky or geometrical shapes. You can fill your living room with a diamond shaped chair or angular accent drum table. For the walls and floor, gold or metallic colors are in. Cover your windows with elegant gold curtains.  Sisal and jute rugs are also on the spotlight of home’s latest must haves. A sisal rug is brilliant for your tiled or wooden floors.

LIVING ROOM DESIGN STAPLES

 FOR THE KITCHEN

HouseBeautiful (.com) also suggests tribal patterns for your homes. A good example of that will be a table runner with ethnic accents.

The latest Michael and Korrs Collection presented by Vogue are about blue prints on white. A dragon bowl inspired with the said detail will be your new and trendy tableware. Old fashioned designs are also desired for your homes. Chairs that resemble vintage details will be impressive in your kitchen or dining rooms. Take note that plain white or dark colored furniture are out.

KITCHEN

 FOR THE BEDROOM

Since designers are indeed pushing the metal and rustic look and hues this year, you can get a uniquely shaped mirror for your rooms. An angular glass table lamp will also fit the trendy theme.

For other furniture, a metallic accent table is superb. Avoid bright or pop colors as they will ruin or contrast your room’s look. For the bed and pillows, you can still use white or plain sheets to accentuate the metallic accents you’ve place.

BEDROOM

The home trends for 2016 are very versatile. It’s up to you on how you can experiment tribal patterns with peculiar shapes and metallic colors. Just remember to have fun and enjoy giving your home a trendy makeover.

An All-American Home With Jacob Bromwell

An All-American Home With Jacob Bromwell

Did you know that there’s still one brand making all-American products for every home in the United States?

Pretty surprising but we’re sure even your grandparents have had at least one “Bromwell Housewares” product and that’s because the brand is at almost 200 years old.

Jacob Bromwell has been around since 1819, which means that the company is older than the incandescent light bulb, patented by Thomas Edison in 1879. It was founded by Mr. Bromwell in Cincinnati, Ohio, “with a handful of wire looms” they say.

Since then, it has thrived as a wire-goods business which has established a name and undeniably, a penchant for excellent quality that has driven it through the Civil War and even the Great Depression.

Just what is the secret to Jacob Bromwell’s home products that are still well-loved by Americans today? We can only speculate but here are three reasons to love Jacob Bromwell.

Made in the U.S.A.

“We have never outsourced our production to low-wage labor countries to reduce costs because we have faith in the creativity and productivity of American workers,” according to the brand. In addition, Jacob Bromwell products are never mass-produced.

Authentic Materials

Premium “steel, stainless steel, tin, aluminum, copper, wood, iron, and leather – all sourced domestically,” is one huge factor why Jacob Bromwell products are such a big hit. There’s a reason why your grandparents’ “Bromwell Housewares” piece stills exist to this day and we dare say it’s because of top-of-the-line quality.

Iconic Products

Buying Jacob Bromwell is like buying a piece of history. The brand’s home products witnessed historical events pleasing and depressing. In fact, the company is already part of American history, with its machinery, equipment and products showcased in museums across the country.

Want to shop your own piece of American history? Click on the product photos below!

Great American Flask

Great American Flask

True to the 1819 original, Jacob Bromwell’s elegant flask is as old as bourbon itself and is historically-correct right down to the American Birch stopper. Each flask is 100% hand built out of pure, solid copper by American workers at our Vermont workshop, just like the massive copper pots used by distillers for purifying liquids.

Classic Tin Cup

Classic Tin Cup

Standard issue during the Civil War, each tin cup is both hand and machine crafted and makes the perfect gift for the history buff, the busy executive, and any guy or gal who appreciates nostalgia. So let your imagination flow as you enjoy this epic relic of Americana. You’ll surprisingly bring history to life with each sip.

All American Flour Sifter

All-American Flour Sifter

Jacob Bromwell held the patents to the world’s first flour sifter, and today we’re making that same sifter in the original style. Sift up to 5 cups of flour in a design that remains true to the original.

Original Popcorn Popper

Original Popcorn Popper

You’ve found it: that old-time popper you love, made right here in the USA. A historical marvel and work of art, this American classic is still 100% built in the USA and is now in its 195th year of production, having maintained its original design since it was given the gift of life in the early 1800s.

Wonder Shredders

Wonder Shredders

These three shredders are strong and long lasting, and promise to make cooking and baking easier, just as they did for millions of American households.

Genuine Pyramid Toaster

Genuine Pyramid Toaster

Jacob Bromwell’s original and time-tested design disperses heat evenly through the slots on either side, toasting two slices of bread to a golden brown.

Frontier Frying Pan

Frontier Frying Pan

In 1848, folks flocked to California in search of gold, and this brutally rugged, hand-forged frying pan helped those miners cook meals as they searched for infinite treasure.
