3 Easy Ways to Style Your Space Like a Pro


1. Add a touch of green

Plants add an instant touch of beauty, and interior designers use them all the time.

You don't even have to have a green thumb to make it work.

Want something almost impossible to kill? A snake plant or aloe vera is the way to go, plus they are great air purifiers.

Want something completely impossible to kill? Faux plants. 'Nuf said.


2. Only decorate with items that are the size of a grapefruit or bigger

Take a look at your favorite Instagram or Pinterest photos.

Ever notice little nick-nacks filling up the shelves or lined up on the counter?

Me neither.

Larger items give a bigger bang for your decorating buck and are more pleasing to the eye.

Plus, they're way easier to dust.


3 . Use vintage books

Stack a few here.

Turn all the spines completely around on the shelf over there.

And bam. That's how its done.

Q & A | Does RamonaMetal Use Recycled Aiplane Parts or New Metal

A question we have been asked quite often is:

Do you use recycled airplane parts?

That is a great question.

As of right now, no. Maybe someday. Perhaps.

Used airplane parts, and lots of them, are hard to come by where we live, completely surrounded by fields. Lots of fields.

For us as a small family owned business, its all about being handmade here on American soil. We take pride in our craftsmanship. Every set screw. Every cut of metal.

We have chosen to use new metal and new wood. We are inspired to create something beautiful with our hands and present it to you as a polished, hand crafted piece.

We modify the designs. We make something new. We custom build.

It is what we do. We are American made.


Let me show you some behind the scenes looks at some of our fabulous handcrafted aviator inspired products and some of the materials we use.

Here we have Tyler, Eric's cousin, rolling on a coat of classic black on the underside of our Jetset Coffee Table tops, made of solid plywood.

And the finished product, wrapped in a sheet of semi-reflective aluminum, with laser cut aluminum legs.

Here Eric is working with lots of angles, putting the sheet metal on The Hanger Light.

And a finished shot of The Hanger Light with our Airframe Table, made with aluminum legs, and hand-rubbed solid red oak top.

We are proud to be American made.

Have more questions for us? We'd love to hear! Send us a message, and we'll see about answering them on our next Q & A blog post.
