Green Furnishings and Home Decor

Earth Day is April 22, and the environmentally friendly holiday has us thinking about going green with furnishings and home décor. More and more, people are becoming aware of how important it is to make green practices and products a part of our everyday lives.

The importance of recycling was one of the things that prompted Paul Michael Company to start designing and manufacturing a line of furniture and accessories in Arkansas. As we explain in our history:

Today we refer to these original designs as Paul’s World ~reclaim, reuse, recycle, redecorate~ everything is 100% American made and the majority of items are constructed of architectural salvage and reclaimed wood that Paul has been collecting for years.

One of our exclusive pieces, for example, is this storage furniture made from reclaimed native wood and found, antique galvanized mechanist buckets.

Contact us to find out more about Paul’s World. Happy early Earth Day! How have you gone green at home?

A Creative Way to Say Happy Birthday

If you love our carrot mesh design, check out this ice cream cone that’s perfect for spring and summer—or even creatively telling someone happy birthday!

Who needs a birthday card when you have this delectable cone to give?

Do you want a mesh ice cream cone like this as a sweet gift for someone you know? We can make them, or our wonderful Paul Michael Company designers can also show DIY enthusiasts how to easily do it themselves with a cone and wreath form plus mesh, or a smaller version made with a lot of “poofing” on top of the cone. Different color mesh can give the look of different flavors for the “ice cream.”

Just head to the Creation Station in your local Paul Michael Company to work on your ice cream cone. We have locations in Lake Village, AR; Monroe, LA; Lafayette, LA; and Canton, TX. Enjoy!

Want a Quick Kitchen Update?

If you want a new look in your kitchen, you don’t have to spring for a full-fledged remodel. Switching out small accessories can go a really long way!

Here are some of the kitchen towels we have at Paul Michael Company:

These pink floral designs look fabulous with their red trim and cooking-related decorations like spatulas and whisks.

Roosters are a popular kitchen motif, and these black, white and red towels match this adorable apron!
