Add a little Todd Oldham style to your Google page!

Do you know about Todd Oldham? Chances are you do. He is an amazing designer who has designed everything from jeans to recliners, houses to dorm room decorations. He had his own show called Handmade Modern and is one of the judges on an interior design reality show.

What I love about him is that he seems like a really cool, laid back person who respects the fact that many of us don't have a huge budget for "designer" purchases and does things to make all of his creations accessible.

Like this little clock. You can add it to your iGoogle page and have a little Todd style for free!

One thing I notice about his style is that he often pulls inspiration from other eras. He just blogged about a new line of area rugs he designed, and explains his inspirations for each group. You can read all about them here.

And if you miss Handmade Modern like I do, you can see clips from some of the episodes here. Have fun!
