Top 5 September Favorites
1. Take a Seat
We've always been in lust with the Mah Jong Couture modular sofa line from Roche Bobois, designed by Hans Hopfer - but now it's rebooted into a wonderful fantasy line with fabrics from bad-boy fashionisto Jean Paul Gaultier. Hot seats.
2. Bowl Us Over
Claryssa Berning's Menicus Bowl is a large leaded crystal lens-type bowl that makes an ultra-elegant statement on any table. We're imagining it piled high with late-summer cherries, the dark red popping beautifully against the thick crystal. From When Objects Work.
3. Flower Power
Artist Ling Chang has been wowing the crowd with her delicious flower watercolors, and her line of products has expanded to include clocks, posters, and greeting cards. Her best-selling item continues to be her 11x14-inch Bouquet Calendar. Pictured above are the monthly pages for 2010 which slot into a clear picture frame for display.
4. Lights Fantastic
The Tony Duquette lighting collection from Remains Lighting provides some really glam showstoppers, like the Splashing Water Table Lamp (top) and the California Sunburst Chandelier (bottom). Click on each photo for more information.
5. Flying High
If you're an aviation buff or have a man cave to trick out and decorate, then AvionArt should be one of your first stops. Authentic aviation materials - yes, pieces of real vintage airplanes - are turned into artistic and functional furnishings, like the DC-3 Wingtip Desk Single pictured above (click on the photo for more information).
