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.

Ever notice little nick-nacks filling up the shelves or lined up on the counter?
Larger items give a bigger bang for your decorating buck and are more pleasing to the eye.
Plus, they're way easier to dust.
Stack a few here.
Turn all the spines completely around on the shelf over there.
And bam. That's how its done.
We are so proud of our newest addition to our aviator furniture pieces. This baby is a beast, weighing 300 lbs, and is a stunning statement bookcase with its gorgeous polished look.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you our Aviator Shelving Bookcase.
It features four removable shelves, making it easy to store your style and size contents. Bonus about the shelves being removable is that it sure makes it easier moving this bookcase when the shelves aren't adding their weight.
Our classic metal patchwork uses exposed steel screws on aluminum, giving it that beautiful look reminiscent of vintage WWII aircraft.
Got uneven floors? We have you covered with our 4 adjustable feet, making it sit perfectly on even those floors that were built so long ago that you could roll a ball one direction across the floor and it would start to roll a whole different direction.
Yes, we have one of those houses. A 1930s beauty. Full of character.
But that's what I like about the old. When you mix an antique wooden dresser with something new, like an artistic pendant lamp or a soft white shag rug, and continue that pattern of mixing the old and new throughout the entire living space, it gives such warmth and beauty to an otherwise stale room.
Give it a try. Mix the old with the new, and see what happens.
Until next time,
We've combined two of our furniture styles into a classic new look:
The polished aluminum metal brightens even the smallest of spaces, and the simplicity of the 90 degree aluminum leg design adds both a vintage and contemporary aviator look.
...with the seamless leg design of our Airframe Desk here.

If you have a small space to furnish, aluminum is a great choice. Similar to the effect that hanging a large mirror in a small space does to create the illusion of a larger area, adding a highly reflective object, such as one of our furniture pieces, reflects the light and brightens the space, giving the room a larger feel.
We have been broadening the selection of metal types available here at RamonaMetal for our different pieces of aviator furniture, and now have available two types of aluminum material for two completely different looks.
One is aluminum, and the other is anodized aluminum.
What is the difference?
First off, the sheen. As you can see below, the aluminum is semi-reflective of the surroundings, giving a more mirror-like appearance, while the anodized aluminum gives it a matte look.
Aluminum’s greatest asset is that it doesn’t rust. There is no paint or coating to wear off. Anodizing the aluminum is a process that increases the thickness of the coating, making it harder, thicker, and even more resistant to corrosion. It is more durable from normal wear and usage.
Anodized aluminum can also be made into different colors, such as black, that we use in all of the pieces of our Black Ops Collection.
Pure aluminum has a beautiful reflective quality.
Anodized aluminum has more durability.
Both have a stunning look.

Leaves a definite impression.
The Black Ops Collection has come to Ramona Metal for that same purpose. To leave an impression like none before.

We bring to you our Biplane Table Black Ops.
Three sleek black anodized legs intersecting simulate the main blades of the helicopter. Black walnut stained solid oak complete the top and bottom of our end table.
And each of our furniture pieces are finished with a metal plaque, signature of all our aviator furniture and shelves.
Our Biplane Table Black Ops is the perfect size end table for beside a bed, couch, or set of chairs, adding an instant industrial look to your home or office.

We've made a simple change with what we originally designed our Biplane Table to do for perfect...all for the better.
Originally our Biplane Table was designed to ship flat for very simple shipping, and some minor assembly required once it arrived at your door. But even this table was hard for us to assemble! We decided to take the headache out for you and ship it already assembled and ready to furnish your home or office with.
Great idea? Brilliant.
Its like opening a present at Christmas! Its all ready to drool over.
Would you look at those gorgeously intersected legs!
Until next time,
Aviator-Inspired Furniture and Decor
Our aviator inspired furniture has taken on a whole new look with just a simple twist:
Hand sanded aluminum metal for a gorgeous, brushed finish.
But before we show you the new look, take a peek at the original look of our JetSet Coffee Table. Beautiful. Semi-reflective. Flawless.
And now, for our newest look added to Ramona Metal: the brushed finish. Each Brushed Finish JetSet Coffee Table is sanded by hand with fine sandpaper to perfection to give the aluminum a rich, luxurious look. If you want to add more visual texture to your room, this look was made for you.
We're drooling over this new look so much here at Ramona Metal, that we want to offer the brushed finish on all our aluminum products!
But don't worry...we will continue to offer both styles for purchase on our website...the original, matte look and the brushed finish. We just like to give you more goodness to choose from.
Tell us what you think on the new look! We'd love to hear your thoughts, so shoot us a message through our website or Facebook.
Here is our latest addition to our furniture line: the Airframe Table.
Our Airframe Table is the perfect blend of wood and aluminum. Featuring a solid oak top and aluminum legs, the table creates a simple arched silhouette when viewed from the front. View the table from the side and see the airframe-style raw aluminum legs transition seamlessly to classic oak.
The table is made by hand by our skilled fabricators within the United States. The oak top is sealed with linseed oil and beeswax for a non-toxic and eco-friendly finish.
Our Airframe Table is the same style and material as our Airframe Desk (pictured below), but with a longer top for a bigger statement.
What statement do you want to make?
Our latest furniture design, the Biplane Table, is coming soon to RamonaMetal! We are proud to add it to our line of aviator-inspired furniture.
Like our Airframe Desk, this Biplane Table is built with solid oak top and bottom. No plywood, no laminates, no MDF board, no veneers.....but solid oak.
The legs are created from aluminum, which fit together in the center for perfect balance. Our designer, James Stumpf designed this table to ship flat for keeping costs low, so minor assembly will be required.
We build it solid. We build to last.
