Sweet Home Furnishings

I only found out a few days ago that one of my very favorite artists from Arkansas, John Bell has an incredible shop in Little Rock filled with vintage and antique found treasures! (Thanks a heap, my so-called friends and thank heavens for new best friend.) Not only does he peddle found furnishings...but local artwork as well...including his own! I'll be featuring this in a separate post coming very soon! He is probably the first art and found assemblage artist that I knew about and fell head over heals with about fifteen years ago. If you're in the Little Rock area, get thee there asap and know that I am extremely envious of your good fortune! Get to know more about John and his shop below and on Sweet Home's website. xo

Sweet Home furnishings is a shop in the Hillcrest neighborhood in Little Rock featuring handmade functional artwork, primitives, claywork, a selection of unusual notecards, antiques, new design, etc.,etc...I share the space with Clement., a wonderful shop full of curiosities and design filtered through the eye of owner Chris Clement. All should check out Chris' collection of vintage paintings and garden ware, among other things. I started Sweet Home eight years ago as a way to share the boxes and cabinets I assemble from old recycled wood, architectural fragments, finials and such. Since then it's become a gathering of all things that echo the blending of grand decay and simple austerity that I try to speak to in my work (with a dose of funky thrown in). So I hope you'll stop by and see what's new this week at Sweet Home and Clement!---owner and artist, John Bell
