Irwin Weiner ASID - The latest Architectural Digest Home Design Show has some real innovations for homeowners and interior decorators alike. If you're at the show, please look for the booth I designed with the Ozer Marble Group - one of the most amazing suppliers around. Our display is all around a Stone = Wallpaper theme, and mark this down as a major design fashion trend for the coming year.
To illustrate, I just used some of Ozer's amazing Verde Laguna green marble, with pronounced vertical veins, as a wall treatment to create a focus wall behind an industrial kitchen range - and I continued the vertical-cut stone as a backsplash. This stone really makes the room pop! In the photo above is a kitchen column I clad in beautiful stone; it's smashing, and it really sets this room apart (it's just been published, too, and I'll share more news with you on that in a week or two).
But back to the Design Show: a new wrinkle in this year's AD festivities is the pairing of vendors with interior designers, and I was delighted to work with the Ozer folks on their booth concept this year. I do hope you stop by and visit the show and the folks at Ozer ... and enjoy this video overview of last year's activities.
