Atelier Brancusi

Today's inspiration is taken from Brancusi's resurrected studio (circa 1920) outside the Centre Pompidou in Paris.  As he was known as a true pioneer in modernism, I am always amazed by the beauty of his studio along with the clean, geometrical lines of his work.  It is a great example of the balance of the use of materials and the art of placement.

ICFF: Black and Gold Trending

Yesterday I finally made it over to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.  I was especially happy to see a lot of black and gold trending throughout the show as this is my "go to" for my own personal style!  Here are a few of my favorite things.


Who doesn't want one of these hoses with gold nozzles hung on antlers on the side of their country or beach house?  I do!  You can also mix antlers colors with different hose colors too. These were just too much fun and brought a huge smile to my face.


Atelier de Troupe presented some fun wall lights in black, white and gold.  I was loving the homage to one of my favorite French designers Jean Royere.



DLV Designs, a design / build furniture company based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, had an interesting assortment of pieces.  I  was especially pleased to discover that this company was based in Red Hook as I am a huge fan.


Tom Dixon nailed it with these new floor and task lamps.
