In an era where big name celebrity designers (and big name celebrity price tags) are becoming the norm even in chain stores, it can be all too easy to blow your budget on a name or logo. But having a well designed, beautifully decorated home doesn’t have to break the bank – you just have to be able to see through the hype, and know what names are worth paying for. If you’re looking for really high quality items, Uttermost is definitely one of the ones you want to remember. Begun as a small family store 36 years ago, Uttermost has since expanded into a (still family owned) international business with a team of renowned designers. They’ve spent decades streamlining the process from design to production to show room to your home, and they work closely with designers and manufacturers through every step of the process to ensure they’re producing the the highest quality, most fashion-forward decor at a reasonable price.
If that’s music to your ears, you definitely want to check out their collection. With a comprehensive line of home decor, from the smallest accent pieces to elegant full sized furniture, they have almost any piece you could want to beautify your home. Their accent furniture ranges from ultra modern and sleek to beautiful, high quality antique reproductions from a wide variety of periods, from 19th to early 20th century American to Louis XV French. If you’re looking to add a touch of classical elegance to any room in your home without, say, having to buy an authentic early American secretary desk at full antique price, this really is the way to go.
They even have a whole collection of (often hand painted) artwork in a whole palette of colors – everything from abstract modern art to art nouveau prints and more classical landscape paintings, all of them beautifully framed and optimized for home viewing. They offer over 400 unique pieces of art (not to mention their wall hangings, clocks, or stunningly designed mirrors), so you’ll be sure to be able to find something to fit your existing decor, or even a piece worthy of crafting a room around.
Of course, with almost a thousand lamps and lighting fixtures, again ranging from restorations to cutting edge new designs, your lighting can be just as eye catching as any artwork it happens to be illuminating. Each design is totally unique, but across all types (lamps, chandeliers, sconces, pendants, etc.) they’re designed to coordinate well, which helps create a unified warmth throughout any room, and can help ease the pain of choosing by enabling you to pick more than one!
Uttermost will even help you bring a little natural beauty into your home, with a full line of lifelike silk flower arrangements and regal topiaries (from desk size to full trees) that come in elegant pots, vases, an planters – no watering needed. But the lion’s share of their collection adheres to the adage that the devil is in the details. They offer hundreds of smaller home decorations, like candlesticks, book ends, and other trinkets that add just that perfect final touch to your decor.
And Uttermost is always expanding: they recently acquired the entire Timeworks line of beautifully hand-crafted, historically accurate clocks, as well as some of the most popular museum-quality reproduction statues, vases, lamps, and other decorative items from Austin Reproductions. Uttermost’s insistence on quality shows in each piece, and you can be assured that each item is not only expertly crafted for looks, but also to last.
So whether you’re looking to totally redesign a room, or just to add a few great accent pieces, Uttermost is all the home decor you need with amazing designer quality, but without the designer price tag.
