Artel - Exquisitely Etched Glasses
With three hours to spare and aching feet, we hobbled over to the Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday to visit with some of our favorite companies. While Heather at Habitually Chic saw lots of orange this season, we spied big, beautiful blossoms (perhaps that’s because we work with flowers all day long!) From the classically pretty prints that Julian Mejia uses on his pillows and trays…

to the marvelous mums on Rag & Bone Bindery‘s albums and journals…
we were in flower heaven! And a big thank you to Matthew from M. Frederick for introducing us to the lovely Melinda, author of the blog Georgica Pond. How fun it was to meet like-minded design fanatics from the other side of the world!

Despite having to man (or should we say “wo-man”?) our booth at the New York International Gift Fair last week, we did sneak in some time to walk the aisles of the At Home section on Pier 94. After admiring the gorgeous Dransfield and Ross display that included whimsical flower tables (you can see them in this month’s House Beautiful), we caught up with longtime friend, Susan Carson, who creates the most beautiful decoupage lamps and furniture…

Christopher Marley, owner of Form and Pheromone (in the booth right next to ours!) created quite a buzz with his framed beetles and butterflies having landed a spot on CBS Sunday Morning last month.

And finally around the corner, Gail DeLoach was introducing new product for her Asian inspired collection. We are always inspired by what we see when we attend these gift shows and this year was no exception!
