This John Houshmand dining table, featured in Napa’s Hall Wines winery, stands in their event space. The stone building is from 1885, but they added an enclosed glass visitor’s center to the front. The table mirrors this juxtaposition beautifully. An aged, raw tree connects to the sleek steel and glass, in a striking combination of old and new. More from Interior Design Magazine here.
A lovely interpretation on the classic rice paper lamp, from Kimu Design of Taiwan.
A sweet treat: this honey dipper by Miriam Mirri for Alessi. Launched at Maison et Objets 2014.
London’s Poetic Lab designed Ripple, an irregular hand-blown bulb which rotates slowly around a light source. The effect is stunning; an evocative and gorgeous dance of light and shadows.

My brother sent me this image because he thought I’d like it. And indeed I do! Unfortunately I don’t know who’s responsible for this architectural gem; all I know is that it’s somewhere in India. Give a shout if you know where this is from!

I just moved to DC, so - naturally - I’m researching the lay of the design land. In doing so, I came across Fowlkes Studio; a really, truly impressive contemporary architecture firm here. I’m especially taken with their Storm Kitchen project (although the shower in their Attic Retrofit is way up there too). I guess I can start to loosen my grip on New York now…
Koket’s Burlesque Console has great genes. If I’m going with a skin I’m in the leather, not snake, camp… but I’d rather get this reupholstered than not own it.
I think Flexform’s new Wing Sofa is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
