I found them in one delicious package on this bow back chair from the new Kate Spade Home collection. I love the detailing of the back and the whimsical lines on this piece.
It’s classic fun all the way.
Come to the show and bring me your design dilemmas. I love to help people solve problems in their homes.
I will be offering complimentary design consultations for show attendees at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 19.
I hope to see everyone there!
Last week I was in Toronto for the 2015 Interior Design Show. It was whirlwind tour complete with a conference, supplier meetings, attending the Opening Night Party, show and trade talks as well as investigating new suppliers at a variety of stores and showrooms in Ontario.
One of my favourite furniture lines from the trip was from Miles + May Furniture Works.
The company is based in upstate New York and creates modern, handcrafted furniture from reclaimed, recycled and non-commercial sources.
I loved the dove-tail joinery on the drawers, the beautiful patina on the wood. The pieces they were showing at IDS were gorgeous.
This is the company’s A-Line server, which was my favourite piece in their show booth.
I’ve been working with a fun-loving couple who want to infuse ethically-sourced and environmentally sensitive choices into their home.
There is a lot to understand and learning about the available products and what it takes to manufacture them has been interesting for me.
One of the choices we are moving forward with is a pair of these Escape pendants over the dining table. They were designed by Ray Power, an Irish designer.
The criss-cross pattern on these contemporary lights will cast gorgeous light and shadow in the dining space and set the tone for the room. I recommended my client’s use two to balance the length of their dining table.
LZF Lighting in Spain manufactures the lights. All of the company’s veneers are forested under environmentally sustainable guidelines, and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
