Piece of the Moment - Poly Pop Pendant

Kate just stumbled across a lovely company (new to us) that is based out of Brooklyn, NY. The company is named TOKENnyc, and they hand craft a variety of goods including casegoods and lighting. They quote, "the collection is aimed at providing elements for purposeful, considered living."

The entire line of products is designed and manufactured in Brooklyn, and the company also "serves as a platform for supporting and participating in the rich community of locally based designers and fabricators. Our piece of the moment is straight out of their lighting collection, which we adore. Check out the Poly Pop Pendant below, and click here for more information on TOKENnyc.

All of their lighting is available in a wide array of finishes/colors. What other colors would you like to see this pendant in?

The New Neutrals

This year, the major color trend for spring and summer has been neons. Bold graphic patterns with a spot of whimsy, such as dots and watercolor stripes have also had a major influence. Now, as we begin to transition into fall and winter, jewel tones, animal prints (especially leopard), and plaids are all appearing. Although most of us are just adapting to this change in trend, all of the color forecasting for 2014 is well underway. Of course, one of the major infuences in color forecasting for interiors, is the influence of the twice yearly runway shows in New York & Paris.

In response to the upcoming year, Benjamin Moore has just released a collection of new colors for 2014. They have labeled this collection the "New Neutral Palette." The colors are intended to be a reflection of trends on the runways, as well as trends in graphics, product design, and landscape design.

Check out the full range of colors below, and click on the link here for more info.

Now, see how we spotted these color trends on the Spring/Summer 2014 runways.

Custom Rugs - Part 2

Remember that post on the custom runners we were working on? Well, they have arrived!

We believe that waiting 10-14 weeks is totally worth it in order to end up with the perfect piece for your space. Why settle on something soley due to timeline, that you will live with for years? Not only does a custom piece allow you to get exactly what you want, but it also allows you to own something that is truly one of a kind. And yes, this relates to not only custom rugs, but also furniture, fabric, etc.

Piece of the Moment - Swedish Dining Arm Chair

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that we adore Rose Tarlow. Not only is she an incredibly talented interior designer, but she is also amazingly talented in both fabric and furniture design. We love her entire line of fabrics and furnishings, and pull them frequently for projects we are working on.

Right now we are especially crushing on this incredible dining arm chair. It is fun and whimsical, yet timeless. What a showstopper this would be on each end of a dining table, or flanking a buffet! This chair would even be killer at a desk......oh, the possibilities!
