West Village- Elizabeth Bauer Design

I was flipping through Vogue and saw much to my delight that they wrote an article about Elizabeth Bauer and her fabulous store. A girl after my own heart, Elizabeth loves the vintage find, french artists, and color, color, color! I stop in her store regularly to find that last minute, “must-have” for my clients. I snapped a few photos of some of her more irresistible finds while shopping a few days ago.

NYIGF Report: Made Goods Mirrors

Looking for the perfect mirror? Made Goods has so many to choose from. They introduced a group of 24 objects to their collection this year. Their chandeliers and accent furniture are beautiful as well.

Red Coral: Giselle mirror: This looks like real coral! Made in red or white this mirror brings a fun organic feeling to any room

Oval shell mirror: Coco mirror: Leaf coral was the inspiration for this piece. A thin silver or gold tip can be applied for a more sophisticated finish.

Round: Venus mirror: Feminine, modern, organic, and glamorous

Blake: The shape has a soft ruffled edge and the young pen is reminiscent or tortoise shell. The color variation makes this a dramatic piece.

Jayson: Cut capiz shell in gold and black shades to form a beautiful piece with a 1970s vibe.

Killian: Natural Capiz shell is cut and shaded to form a classic, interlocking motif. Very Glam.

Sidney: Classic thin frame in a young pen finish.

Claude: The faux shagree covered trapezoids are applied in a familiar yet modern shape.

Sabine: A wide doomed border surrounds the mirror. Available in cool grey, pale blue, and muted pink.

Edith: A palladian shaped mirror available in cool grey or pale blue. I would love this to hang above my vanity.

Anaut: Inspired from an ancient indian technique. Originally used on ceilings to reflect and refract light into larger rooms, it works equally well now as a modern design element. Small slightly domed circles of mirror in varying sizes create a fly’s eye image. This would be fun at the end of a hall.

Gorka: A dramatic wooden frame is covered in silver or gold metal. This reminds me of a peacocks tail. It is like a fabulous piece of jewelry for your wall.

NYIGF Report: Julian Chichester

JJulian Chichester is always a go to source for me. I loved their new arm chair with a small loosely tufted quatrefoil pad for your back. The long buffet is also good looking with it’s mirrored panels.

The shagreen chest of drawers knocks tradition on it’s head. The curvaceous shape makes you take a second look and the shagreen is beautiful. The same goes for the tall brass bookcases with shagreen shelves. Yum!
