Great Products – Spring 2013
My blog got hacked last week and set me back a bit, but all is well now and I am happy that I didn’t loose all my content. A little bit of this and that, some great products from this month’s Veranda.
A beautiful new fixture from Corbett ‘Chimera’. It has nickel and crystal tassels. The frame is a silver leaf finish.
My past favorite the ‘Dolcetti’.
Another gorgeous and exotic fixture from Corbett, ‘Nirvana’. Fabulous with Moorish. It is brass.
Some great mural and panel art from the incredibly talented Paul Montgomery Studio.
New Moon Rugs a classic look that is not an oriental.
Another beauty from New Moon, Corinth in Cerulean Blue.
Antigua Del Mar Tile – Beautiful mosaic reproduction tiles handmade in Spain.
All these products share a color palette that really works for me. The inspiration for this Zimmer & Rohde fabric came on a design trip to India and the photography of Norman Parkinson called “Pink is the Navy Blue of India”. You can’t see the texture of this fabric in the picture, but it is felt. Felt found its origin in one of Parkinson’s infamous photos where he juxtaposes architecture with fashion. The contemporary design was developed with hand-guided machine, Aari embroidery on a felted ground. It simulated the crewel stitch technique. Suitable for drapery and bedding. I think a two-story window wall in a great room would look fabulous with full length panels.
Restoration Hardware now RH has introduced Objects of Curiosity and architectural plaster fragments.
