This was quite a week end! Setting up friday night for the warehouse sale at the Metropolitan Pavillion in New York was quite an achievement in maximizing the amount of furniture on 300sq/ft. We had the smallest space and used every inch of it. Can you guess I tried to keep costs to a minimum...Saturday was quite hectic, the goal was to get rid of floorsamples that were costing me monthly warehousing fees.I did not quite make my goal but nevertheless was happy with the results. I ran in a bit of trouble by selling the same day bed to two people...had a very upset woman to deal with!I was so drugged out for bronchitis that, to my defense, I was borderline delirious... Sunday morning, back to the Metropolitan for an hour and off to the gift show. I found out that we actually totaled the highest sales per square foot...
I went to the gift show to pick up a few accessories for my Interieurs showroom, and say hello to my favorite lighting designers, Caleb Siemon and Carmen Salazar whom I represent in New York. The Gift show is great for a quick pick up but i don't find inspiration in such an environment . I thrive for the challenge of discovering new talents, artists I never heard off, this usually happens at random, when least expected.
And VOILA! I placed a few orders, took pics of my favorites...and am off to the podiatrist for my cast... Will be going to Paris in a couple of days to work on the new inspirations for Jose Esteves new lighting collection, and to Avignon in hope to find some mid century armchairs at the "deballage" as well as working on some new industrial ideas with my buddy "Bernard"
I am crazy for these Christian lacroix note books.Placed an order to give as clients' gifts
I have enjoyed Esteban's candles in my house for years...Finally bought them for my Interieurs showroom
Really liked these candles as well, unfortunately the style is just too country for Interieurs
I found these great soy candles, made upstate New York. I will be doing a private label program for Interieurs with their amber scent
Purchased these chinese urns to display on my Industrial Farm tables
My favorite bedding Leitner which I have carried at Interieurs for the past 15 years
This will be featured on our Armande canopy bed
This John Robshow bedding is such fun
Perfect linen hemstitched napkins from Sferra, a must!
Went mad for these Indian swinging chairs
Always enjoyed bold wooden chandeliers
Perfect plates for a beach or country house
Just love these sweet porcelain cups
