If brevity is the soul of wit then I have none. (Wit, I mean. Sold the soul for some silk velvet and a moon pie years ago). Anyway I guess the Lady Meares didn't rub off on me this past weekend at Mar-kitt because she'd title this post 'Items,' load some pics, finish in six words or less and still make me chuckle. But back to Haut Point for a second: Forget "The Next Six Days That Matter"-- a more apt description would've been "The Butch and The Belgian." Seriously, is Restoration Hardware making so much money that every other showroom needs to copy their look?? I love a leather club chair and some bleachy/gray wood just as much as the next chain store shopper, but c'mon. It was like RLX Vervoordt up in that galleria, redeemed only by open bars around every corner.
So I wish I could say all the furniture and accessories heading your way are inspired by these items ... I'll list 'em anyway:
Primary colors. This is the snazziest two-dollar book I've bought on the street in a long time. They just don't make hombres like they used to.
Plaster Giacometti lamps. I saw a copy like this one at a thrift store recently and thought "Hot diggity dang, here's my chance!" Right. What is wrong with America when they're charging less on 1stDibs??
Saw the real deal (I think) at Mrs. MacDougall this morning along with some gorgeous J-M Frank benches and cool Hinson lighting -- sort of like a lightbox drinks table in, guess what, primary colored plexi. The rich [stores] are different.
Print hybrids. What's a teopard? Right now pretty much my favorite animal.
