I love blu dot. I love everything about them. It was founded by three people who met in college, and shared the same love for art, architecture and design. When they left college and started to furnish their homes, they didn't like the stuff they could afford and couldn't afford the stuff they liked. So they decided to start up a business, Blu Dot in 1997. I can relate to this story. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford their stuff! But they're not overpriced and do love their look.
