Italian design company
exhibited a unique collection of 
divine handmade "interior accessorations" .......
made entirely from neoprene,
at ICFF!!!

is an industrial synthetic rubber material that is 
flexible, soft, smooth, waterproof ......
& has great color saturation!!!

The neoprene has been knitted, crocheted, woven, 
plaited, knotted or twisted by hand ......
creating a stunning collection of baskets, poufs, 
& pillows (with sunbrella inserts)!!!

These "accessorations" are fabulous additions 
for pool, patio, porch, or boat!!!

Of course, I immediately ordered a selection of 
baskets, poufs,

NYC designer 
created this stunning collection of
"Clamp Lights" sold exclusively
at the divine NYC design emporium/gallery ......

Lindsey sources industrial vintage clamps, 
brass plates them, 
and lead glass blower 
blows the molten glass into forms that 
naturally "slump" into these bulb-like shapes ....
and the clamps are then attached 
as the glass cools!!!

The fixtures are spectacular ....
whether in a group or individually,
they are absolutely an "accessoration supreme"
and an "accessorator must-have"!!!

New Zealand-based, English artist/designer
created these beautiful, sculptural, energy efficient,
sustainable light fixtures with an environmental conscience ....
featured at  
during ICFF.

The shapes are influenced by nature ...
the flora, fauna, and sea life of Australia & New Zealand.

Using CFL & LED light sources,
the laser cut lights are flexible bamboo plywood pieces,
that are attached with metal clips.

To reduce the "environmental footprint" of the lights ...
they are flat-packed in pieces,
that are easily assembled by the owner!!!

The fixtures are available in the USA from Texas-based 

"I work within the limits of what I have & know,
simplicity & low impact, 
natural materials & process,
leaving a delicate footprint."
