3 Tabletop Fountains for an Eclectic Interior Style

I think “Eclectic” is one of the most fun room styles to have. It encompasses a hodgepodge of period furnishings, giving your creative tastes a wide variety of options. The color scheme includes my three favorite colors: gold, brown, and red. A very rich palette, the room fabrics include patterns, trims, fringe, and velvet textures. Lustrous bronze lamps, gold trim mirrors, red velvet loveseats, and tasseled floor rugs define an eclectic room. The overall effect is majestic. This is my favorite interior decorating style hands down.

So, for those eclectic fans who are looking to accent their room with a soothing fountain, here are three table top fountains which will complement the room flawlessly.

Boulder Crystal Tabletop Water Fountain

With dark slate stair step design, the base comes either in a flamed copper finish or deep mocha brown–either of these hues fit the eclectic palette perfectly. Water bubbles up from the top and cascades down each level creating a soft, flowing water sound. Handcrafted in the United States and fitted with a quiet, recirculating electric pump, this is a bold complement to your room.

Red Ceramic Tabletop Fountain

Embodying the vibrant red hues of the room, the ceramic design makes the surface smooth and glossy. In scrolling font, the mantra “Live, Laugh, Love” is imprinted in the face of the fountain. Fashioned in a vase style, the soothing water sounds are amplified in a room, giving you peace of mind.

Garden Leaves Table Fountain

This fountain captures the golden, lustrous highlights of an eclectic room. The leaves are formed from a faux copper material, ensuring that shiny glow for a long time, and the light, earthy poly-resin basin serves to accentuate the copper leaves. In a pretty uniform style, this fountain will fit with innumerable period furnishings, and with the timeless golden autumn design, the tabletop fountain will continue to adorn your room even if in the future you decided to change to a Contemporary or Asian styled room.

 

Celebrate Earth Day with These Tabletop Fountains!

April 22 marks the anniversary of the first celebrated “Earth Day” in 1970. According to the official Earth Day website, it was the brainchild of a Wisconsin Senator named Gaylord Nelson. Troubled by the devastating effects of the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, Nelson decided to fuel the energy in the current anti-war movement to raise awareness of environmental protection. Environmental policies started to make their way in the national agenda. Protesters of power plants, extinction of wildlife, and oil spills started to ban together on a unified front to get legislation passed to protect our environment. And after the first national “Earth Day” was celebrated, the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts were passed.

Earth Day does a lot to remind us each year of our responsibility for keeping our habitat healthy as well as pursuing options in clean energy. Here are three tabletop fountains which, while being beautiful, will serve as a constant reminder of our part in what Earth Day stands for:

Rustic Tree Waterfall Tabletop Fountain- Modeling an old, weathered tree, water spills from the top and twirls down the center view, collecting in the pool below. The LED lighting gives this fountain a mystical look and has an overall organic style to it.

Waterfall Log Tabletop Fountain- This one has a horizontal, zig zag water flow through the fountain. Again, mimicking the look of an old forest log, water streams through the crevices into the hallowed log below. Also fitted with LED lighting, you can enjoy the fountain at night as well.

Cascading Waterfall Tabletop Fountain- Embodying a mini stone waterfall look, water trickles across the rock creating soothing water sounds. The LED light gives the flowing water a mesmerizing look.

Organic in design and soothing in style, these three fountain symbolize the natural beauty Earth Day was created to protect. To view more detail of these tabletop fountains, click here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Product Spotlight: Hand Crafted Ceramic Tabletop Fountains

Some of our favorite tabletop fountains are these hand crafted Made in the USA ceramic tabletop styles.  With so many fountains to choose it is sometimes nice to find something that you know will look great in any space and will be unique.  One of the many benefits of a water fountain made right here in the US.  Sure, you pay a bit more for the hard work and many hours that go into each one but is it worth it?  That is for you to decide but we wanted to show you a few of our favorites and explain the process of how each and every one is made.  Clay artisan Tim Miller explains his process as this (note, this is a simplified version)

  1. Sketches out ideas and works through what is a yes and a no
  2. Design and sculpting begin to work out things such as design elements like fountain style, size, aesthetics, water flow and scale are tested and incorporated.
  3. Once a prototype is created the plaster molds are made for each part of the fountain.
  4. Liquid clay “slip” is poured into each part of the mold, this gets absorbed and dried in about 25 minutes then poured out and allowed to dry for about an hour.
  5. Later removed from the mold and set aside to dry.  The fountain bowl is then leveled and and allowed to cure for before cleaning.
  6. The ceramic water fountain is now dry and ready to clean. All mold lines are carefully cleaned with a razor sharp knife. The fountain is then sponged with water and made smooth… then set aside to dry. It is very time consuming and dirty.
  7. A textured clay is then applied and goes into the oven to dry for the first time.
  8. They then go into a kiln at over 1800 degrees to cook for over 8 hours and then a day to cool.
  9. It is then sanded and cleaned and ready for a glaze to be applied.  3 layers of glaze are applied
  10. Goes into the Kiln for a second firing.

As you can see, even the shortest version is a lot of work!  Now, let’s look at some of Tim’s beautiful ceramic fountains, with over 22 years of experience, you are sure to get quality in every piece!

The Beauty of a Slate Waterfall on your Tabletop

Slate Tabletop Fountains bring the Nature into your Home

Indoor water fountains are great decoration element for any interior. They enhance the beauty of our homes with their design and appearance, and especially with the sounds they produce while the water flows, bringing visions of small streams and meandering rivers and relaxing the complete ambiance in the home.

When decorating we have different choices of what indoor waterfall type, style or design we will decide to have in our home and our choice will greatly depend on the interior decoration style we have applied. The material from which the fountain is made is also important so that it can best fit the décor. There are slate tabletop fountains which are very convenient for almost any home. They are smaller in size, thus can be placed anywhere in the house, or moved whenever we want to rearrange them, and the material they are made of goes with a modern decoration style, as well as with “all natural” or organic sort of home décor.

The slate tabletop fountains come in nice palette of natural colors and patterns in accordance to the style of their frames or basis. You can easily find a black, green or rajah slate tabletop fountain combined with a stainless steel, copper or even wooden frame. These indoor water fountains also have very visible texture. The surface of the slate tabletop fountain is rugged, when compared to a metal one for example, and it creates “movement” in the water flowing through that surface. This makes this indoor waterfall very attractive decoration element.

The slate tabletop fountains are heavier than others because this material is stronger and more massive, but on the other hand, this is why these fountains are more stable and durable. They will soothe and beautify your home for many years and make your investment in your new slate tabletop fountain even more valid.
