BEST OF | Architectural Digest Design Show 2015


I spent Friday afternoon perusing the AD Design Show with my art/design bestie Raquel Cayre… We mostly focused on the “Made” section of the show, which features over 150 artists and designers, local and emerging artisans in art, fine furniture, sculpture, textiles and lighting. Almost everyone I spoke to was based out of Brooklyn and hand making some pretty gorgeous things. “Art Furniture”. Basically, I was in indie furniture heaven, not least because…. CHAIRS! There were many many many lovely chairs for me to gape at. Some distinct trends emerged. Lighting is still heavily mid-century french inspired. Wood is blonde. Lines are clean and edgy. And marbles and stones reign supreme. If you look at yesterdays post, the aesthetic is consistent. Ok, here we go, some of my favorite moments at the AD Design Show.

Notice the trend toward oval shapes?  IMG_0018 IMG_0024 Me in a Bower mirror, and no I did know one pant leg was rolled up.  IMG_0020 These Granny shoes are all over the fashion blogs.
