Style Set: Tobe of Because It’s Awesome

Today we are introducing a new series on the Histoire blog called Style Set where we ask different bloggers to pick one of their favorite items from Histoire, and pair it with another item. First up we have Tobe from Because It’s Awesome. Tobe is a lettering artist living in Kansas City, and is currently redecorating her new house.

Tobe says, "I can’t help but admire Histoire’s commitment to ecological responsibility, be it from supporting the artisan communities that make these beautiful pieces or ensuring that I’m bringing unique, responsibly made items into my home. As an advocate of shopping my local thrift stores and antique malls to find the most one-of-a-kind pieces, I also appreciate the global impact of giving old items new life. In addition to being unique, I find that these items are often better made to stand the test of time, and those are two qualities that truly make a house a home.

"I am definitely loving the Rope Dye pillow (in fact, I bought it on sight!). I love the handmade quality, and how easily it complements any aesthetic, be it glam or modern or virtually anywhere inbetween. My first thought was how incredible it would look when paired with this luxe faux fur throw from Calypso St. Barth. Perfect for the living room sofa or to add a luxurious touch to the bedroom.
