"Castilian Trading began as a brassware gift and home accessory importer based in Jackson, Mississippi in 1977. After 12 years as a successful business in brassware items, Castilian Trading was bought by Simon and Lily and relocated to Houston, TX.
Simon had a vision for the direction that his company should take. He set about expanding the designs and materials used in the home decor accents that became the new focus of Castilian Trading. Simon headed up the design team and began introducing porcelain, crystal, glass, wood and silver along with the brassware. The results were beautiful handcrafted pieces that were both innovative and traditional."
Below are a few of my favorite pieces from their expansive collection of home decor, & lighting. I've got my eye on a few of these beauties...

Sea Coral Table Lamp w/Custom Black Silk Shade

Cheryl Collins has this lamp (above) in her store & it caught my eye right off the bat. I-LOVE-THIS-LAMP. The wire mesh overlay on the shade is unlike any ol' lampshade. To me, that additional touch says it's a quality piece, made with attention to detail & innovative craftsmanship. Bravo!
