The new collection features an assortment of furniture, lighting and decorative accessories that showcase Windsor’s brilliant ability to mix modern and traditional aesthetics. Much of the collection was influenced by classical elements of Greek and Roman design and features a variety of materials and finishes including quartz crystal, marble, resin, antique brass and vintage silver.

Meeting Windsor Smith & Other Highlights of My Recent Trip to LA

Me & Windsor Smith!

Very recently I spent 11 days in LA, doing a little work, having a bit of fun and meeting some pretty amazing people including my design idol Windsor Smith whom I’m pictured with above.

I was also lucky enough to get a grand tour of her AMAZING home that we all saw and …
