It has been a whirlwind since my return from Maisons et Objets in France.
I have been developing a wonderful relationship with the Editor and publishers of New York Spaces and they will be featuring one of our projects in this fall issue. As a celebration, they will sponsor an event at our New York Showroom introducing our new Amara Collection.
Greg Glidden and I designed this collection in record time! I had a sudden inspiration while reading "Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese and felt transported to Ethiopia. I have a deep love for tribal art and artifact, and this collection is inspired by a beautiful ethiopian shield I acquired years ago.
I am just back from North Carolina where I got a look at our first piece.... perfect! I would have never hoped for such beautiful workmanship for our prototype. Later, I will write a post on the process of creating a collection, from pure spontaneous inspiration to the actual launch .
If you live in or are traveling to New York, I hope you can join us for this fun event.
Please RSVP directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.... I have a special treat for my blogging friends.
