I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect table fountain for my foyer.
Ideally – something zen-like to place next to my favorite Buddha. I love water and I’ve always loved the way it makes me feel. I knew at a young age that I’d ultimately need to live on one coast or another – being land-locked never felt right to me. And although I’m now living in Los Angeles, I’m not close enough to the ocean for my liking – so I’m feeling the sudden urge to bring the water to me.

Just the sight and sound of water cleanses and soothes the body and soul. Somehow the sound of trickling water in the distance is both soothing and energizing at the same time.
Studies prove that when water is sprayed waves of negative ions are released into the air, which in turn increases the serotonin levels in our bloodstream. This increase in serotonin boosts our energy level, improves our moods and keeps us healthier.

It will instantly add beauty, sophistication and attract positive energy into your life. The design possibilities are endless. A little bit of water goes a long way – so be creative and set your home apart from the rest.
