The beautiful lamps, furniture, home accessories and fabric that make up the Jamie Young oeuvre have an origin story that’s as charming as they are: artists Jamie Young and David Jeter credit a 1997 daytrip to Mexico as the springboard for the launch of their thriving company. While south of the border, they purchased a trunk load of rustic garden pots and planters from a roadside stand, and then promptly resold the lot to their neighborhood flower shop; that experience inspired the couple to manufacture their own line of weathered, culturally-influenced wares and, eventually, open an L.A.-based showroom. Today the company supplies their elegant pieces, from table lamps to occasional furniture to jewelry, to stores throughout the country and luxury hotel chains around the world.
Standout designs with nature-inspired charm
To create a rustic, industrial look that doesn't leave your home feeling like a factory (or a farm), you'll need to deploy a combination of materials. For example, hang a metal pendant light over a table set with wood-handled knives and a milk jug filled with flowers. Or, in a seating area, accent a walnut bookcase with zinc-framed mirrors, glass canisters, and a mercury glass vase. The magic is in the mix.
