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.

Locked Away in Patina…Vintage Bank Vaults

We have recently become attracted to the allure of vintage bank vaults.  The beautiful metalwork, detailed mechanisms, and lustrous patina make for undeniable eye-candy.

This particular vault door is on display at the City Museum in Downtown St Louis.  The detailed brass and steel is a sight to behold.  Did you know that most vaults are custom designed?  The vault is usually the first aspect of a new bank building to be designed and built.
