Happy 2012, y'all! I got stuck in the work-holiday vortex but hope urrybody had a great Christmukkahzaa. Pa Olsen, who is given to rhyming New Year's mottos, announced "We'll get off the shelf in Two-thousand-twelfth." Got that? Good.
Speaking of shelves, I'm SO proud to be featured in West Elm's latest catalog and on their Front & Main blog talkin' all things Parsons: bookscases, tables, desks ... I've honestly never met a Parsons thingerdoodle I didn't like. (In fact, the other day in the meadow we did build a snowman and we named him Parson Brown-Olsen.) And I love the pictures of my tiny little tenement -- "Shiny Walls Remix," says a pal -- which show off new treasures like that dude perched next to the TV. Plus my new/old sofa:
A drippy glaze urn on this etagere (oh and I framed Sally's painting!):
And my lemon yellow Mottega lamp:
Thanks to West Elm's Aaron Able, Korin Thorig, Juan Carlos De La Acena, and photographer Philip Ficks for these great shots. I've loved W.E. forevs and evs and this was such a treat.
