OBSESSED

Date night in the groovy hookup lounge by Louis Jon Garcia-Maldonado, with its sueded leather walls, mirrored bar shelves, gray moire curtains, mammoth daybed and crackling gel fireplace, is threatened by two female archetypes: a flame-haired warrior, a wall-size female nude painted by Eric Pedersen and a kittenish Kate Moss in a Russell Young photograph, clad in black undies and black thigh-high stockings, clutching a teddy bear.”

Tom Dixon’s new ‘Spun’ collection has us reeling with excitement!  Or is that spinning with excitement?  These brass pieces certainly add ‘pop’ to a room!  The retro space-age forms are a bold statement.  And these pieces are brass…what’s not to love?  And the champagne bucket is a must have.

Fabric or Bronze?…”Dressed” Collection by Jens Praet

At first glance, Jens Praet’s collection of sculptural furniture pieces appear to have fabric draped over solid forms.  Look more closely and you will see these ‘sheets’ are actually bronze!

The lovely verdigris patina of the ‘draped’ bronze produces a notable contrast to the brushed brass of the main structures.  These pieces truly are functional pieces of sculptural art.
