Well, I’m back, after a long absence, according to John. I’d like to share with you some of my favorite visual, product finds in the last month.
It is wonderful when our designer showrooms change their displays. I was doing a tour of the Boston Design Center when my attention was arrested by the following objects:
This wonderful wall sconce is made of white porcelain petals, by Art & Style, from France. Available from Charles Spada Antiques, Boston. I Love its fresh approach. You will never see yourself repeated in other people’s homes with this jewel.
Also at Charles Spada, I spied this hollowed-out tree trunk. I remember seeing similar at the New York Fair. This is truly wonderful for a casual room. I don’t care what you do with it – it is fabulous standing on its own in a corner. Also a foyer! Umbrella stand, anyone?
I love this white bubble glass lamp. Great shape. Classic, but modern, and the glass quality is outstanding. Available from Blanche Field, my favorite custom lampshade company!
In the fabric and upholstery division, I give my award to this rustic, charming chair with fun fabric and thoughtful, lighthearted trim. Look at the detail they put into this chair! Notice the fabric “button” made of various layers of fabric. Love it. Available from Webster & Company, one of my favorite showrooms.
Look at this detail ! Like a flower!
You have to give it to Webster & Company. Fabulous job!
Just when you’re NOT looking for it, the perfect accessory shows up! I love this metal, 3 dimensional fish. We’re showing it to clients for that perfect over the mantel piece item. After all, we live on the seashore! Found at the Kravet Showroom and FDO.
And last, but definitely not least, I was stopped in my tracks and had to take a photo of these pillows. I love combinations of bright color, thoughtfully used, and here it is. In the Duralee showcase, look at this pillow, with different flange colors, and each side of each flange is a contrasting, coordinating color. Now THAT’S my style. Go Go Go !
See you next time, on Fabulous Finds.
