Design: How about a few studs this New Year?

Happy 2012 to all of you! It's Drew here, kicking off the new year with a trend you MUST admire! Surely you've seen this edgy, yet very sophisticated style by now and it's time to start incorporating it into your own home!

Studs and tufted fabric add instant pizazz and flair to anything from chairs, headboards, to spunky trays, stools and ottomans, then finish it off with glitzy lamps and pendants!
