NYC's Frieze Art Fair was an enormous success!!!
A fabulous selection of international galleries
showing paintings, drawings,
sculpture, installations, & my favorite category....
artist's "furniture accessortations"!!!
Soooo much to see & sooo little time .....
& this is only the tip of the "accessorator's iceberg"!!!
Kudo's to architect & interior designer
Steven Learner for creating
NYC's first Collective .1 Design Fair!!!
It is spectacular!!!
The twenty plus galleries at Collective .1 present a
"a cohesive, curated selection of
contemporary design & historical pieces
from around the world."
Located in Pier 57
on the West Side Highway at 15th Street ...
this is an "accessorator must-see!!!"
I adored my visit to Dallas ....
I saw sooooo much fabulous art & incredible design ....
I went into a spin!!!
I flipped over everything in this house ...
it's owner is an over-the-moon
But, I can't get this sublime dinning room
out of my mind!!!
These fabulous vintage textiles
pieced into these sublime "table-mats"
I imagined all the textiles in my closet ....
incredible African cloth remnants,
fantastic ikat fabrics,
& the vintage quilt pieces sitting
on the top shelf!!!
WOW .... I'm off to the seamstress now!!!
And the chairs are spectacular too!!!!
German designer Ingo Maurer &
British company Established & Sons
presented Maurer's "Floating Table" last month
in Milan during Design Week.
The round table has the illusion of being "legless"
but really "stands" on four bentwood chairs
that are hinged to the tabletop.
An exciting & innovative "accessoration divine,"
the chairs slide in & out
for easy access!!!
Spanish industrial designer Alvaro Catalan de Ocon,
worked with displaced Columbian craftsmen,
to recycle plastic waste
that is polluting the Amazon River.
The collaboration resulted in the creation
of this divine light fixtures ....
The shades are woven by artisans
over recycled plastic bottles,
& are then sent to Madrid
to be made into stunning light fixtures!!!
This fixture "accessoration supreme"
was hanging in the garden at
There is nothing is more glamorous than a
Baccarat crystal chandelier .....
except one that is designed by internationally renown
Brazilian design gurus
Mixing bamboo branches, plaited wicker
& other natural fibers
with the most world's finest crystal
is lighting genius!!!
A fabulous "accessoration divine"
& a sublime example of "high/low design,"
created by the originators of this design trend!!!
I returned to Carla Sozzani's
10 Corso Como last week
during Milan's design extravaganza ....
& was again awed by the extraordinary talent of
artist/designer Chris Ruhs!!!
This time I climbed the circular staircase
above the gallery .....
to find this brilliant roof garden!!!
There was so much to see.....
murals, planters, furniture, mosaics, all things "art" .....
plus the spectacular garden folly!!!
It is the "ultimate accessoration of accessorations"!!!!
Love Milan Design Week ....
everything looks like an "accessoration supreme"!!!!
This is a sublime updated "fence accessoration,"
that would be absolutely fabulous
in East Hampton!!!
Sometimes Milan Design Week can feel like a secret society ....
especially for me!!!
But, standing in front of "design guru"
new Tortona office/studio
I immediately sensed this wasn't a random
collection of oil drums!!!
I knew this was a very specific "Navone-blue" installation,
thought-out with great detail
by the "accessorator supreme" herself!!!
WOW, I realized I had finally broken
the secret "design code" ....
& maybe I'm really part of this "design thing"!!!
is stunning & features
incredible "historical" works of art for resale.
I especially adored the spectacular
But this "quirky accessorator"
became obsessed with
this sublime quasi-Knoll table,
encircled by this melange
of brilliantly colored quasi-Eames chairs .....
Makes any staff lunch a treat ...
wonder how you get an invitation!!!!
