Little details like worn creases, coffee stains, or notes in the margins give handwritten papers a unique, tactile quality that allows them to serve as something like time capsules, capturing a moment and putting it on display.

HomeThangs.com – the Online Home Improvement Store has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer. With that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.
Framed paintings and photos have long been a mainstay of interior design, but the growing popularity of an industrial style decor and the increasing preference for relaxed, casual interiors has meant that traditional artwork has fallen somewhat out of favor. Instead, homeowners are turning to found art and reclaimed items for a more rustic/contemporary aesthetic. HomeThangs.com has introduced a guide to a few of the most popular everyday items that are being used as art.
Unlike fine art, which is beautiful for the sake of being beautiful, found art is beautiful accidentally, and are often items that are functional first and visually pleasing second. For example, handwritten letters, post cards, manuscript pages, rough artistic sketches, or even musical notation have become popular art pieces, and are prized for their unique individual character – small stains and defects, unique or unusual handwriting styles, stamps or postmarks, and so on. Similarly, technical drawings and detailed scientific sketches have an elegant yet functional feel, and imply a purpose and a sense of history that traditional art doesn’t. As “art,” the contents of these papers are less important than their appearance, but they should tell a story.

HomeThangs.com is not only a home improvement superstore, it also provides expert design tips and a comprehensive shopping guide, taking the ideas from professional interior designers, and offering tips to the consumers on how to pick the products to best suit their needs.
