Best of ICFF: John Pomp Studios

The beautiful light fixture that you see above really caught my eye at ICFF and made me stop in my tracks to check out the booth of John Pomp Studios, a Brooklyn based company that specializes in custom glass design and lighting fabrication. Its proprietor, John Pomp, is a master glass blower and churns out some of the most gorgeous light fixtures you’ve ever seen.

Another piece I really liked was this custom light fixture called the 4-B Light designed by Pomp in collaboration with Roman and Williams for the Royalton Hotel in New York.

Best of ICFF: sixinch

While walking through the sea of booths at ICFF I noticed a very cool, electric yellow French style armless chair and its taupe colored mate suspended from a wall. These very modern looking chairs that you see are by Belgian design company sixinch and are made of foam with a polyurethane coating. They’re water resistant and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. These would make for a very chic addition to a bistro style table on your patio or terrace. So Haute!…

Haute Paper from Horchow and Mr. Boddington

I’m almost out of my favorite personalized stationery so I’ve been shopping around and wanted to share two very chic sets of correspondence cards that I’m loving right now…

This stylish stationery is from Horchow. I love the top two cards which feature a Chippendale print in either blue or red. I love that these are personalized in gold ink. So Haute! This style costs $154 for a set of 50 correspondence cards with personalized envelopes.

These cards are by Mr. Boddington’s Studio and are from their Kyoto collection. I love the chocolate colored Japanese tree lining and the very …

I’ve Been a Bad Blogger!

Sorry I’ve been MIA all week. Work has been crazy busy and I’ve also been spending lots of time trying to organize my life and my home. Thursday I took a much needed day off from work and being the adventuress that I am, I decided to rent myself a minivan and drive up to Brimfield, Massachusetts to attend the Brimfield Antique Show. I had such a great time there. There were so many dealers and so much to see…the experience was beyond overwhelming. By the time I finished walking around for six hours or so I was completely …
