Happenings at the Gift Show

These are some of my favorite chunky knit throws and pillows that can be found at Homelosophy

Walking the floor of the Javits Center for the New York Gift Show is always an eye opening experience.  Handmade, artisanal, crafted pieces, each with an integrity and irregular beauty that defines "made by hand" speaks to the beauty that lies in the imperfect.  There was much of that displayed in almost every category, literally from soup to nuts (they have a food area).  I always discover something I didn't know a client or I needed.

Alex Marshall Studios not only does beautiful hand made dinnerware, but monograms as well.  A good two-fer

Making things meaningful is Sasha Nicholas' motto.  I love that.  I have always been a fan of customization, and monograming always adds that extra touch.  It really makes something one's own!

Mr. Brown is doing just that by allowing customers to use fabrics of their choosing on this breakfront and captioning it, "Your cabinet, your muse" ~ you can personalize it any way you choose.

The floor cloths from Israel caught my eye because we talked about the encaustic tiles being a current trend.  Maybe this is a good compromise if you want something LESS permanent from Kiss that Frog.

Crystals, selenite, and all things mineral are still taking center stage with their natural, organic, nature made characteristics that help give a room soul

and politically correct or not ~ fur is fashionable

Items on everyone's 2016 trend list were well represented!
