Shiner – modern, eco-friendly furnishings
I’ve just moved. Ugh! Don’t you just hate moving? I mean, it’s a great opportunity for purging and re-ordering, but it’s enough to make me ill.

So, freshly scarred from my latest efforts, I’m trying to find pieces for my new home that are a) stylish b) eco and c) needed.The holidays found me flipping through home magazines and interior design blog, so expect a few MAGNIFECO home pieces to dot these fashion pages for the next while.
