I've been obsessing a little too much over wood lately, I'm starting to scare myself. You know how we all go through these phases. Thread count. Wall decals. Pillows. My latest obsession is wood. Lately, I've been a huge teak and bamboo fan. I'm trying to outfit a three-season porch that we recently turned into a modern new work space in our 1875 carriage house. We still have to work on the electrical and finish the cathedral ceiling, but overall, it's heading towards completion. Finding the right furnishings is tricky, especially for me because there's so much out there. The world of furnishings is like the cereal aisle at the grocery store, more than you'll ever need or eat, but fun to browse. Like cereal, I always tend to go back to my favorites when it comes to design. Clean. Cheery colors. Modern. Functional.
I spotted 54Dean in Dwell magazine recently and wanted to show off their sexy georgie table. Slat wood tables are popping up all over, I think design savvy peeps enjoy the visual lightness of it all. The curves and the way the light falls through the little georgie, I don't know...it just does something to me. Yes, agreed. I need help. :)
I'm hoping 54Dean will be at the Brooklyn Designs show again this year. Not sure if I'll be in the states then but I'd like to attend. Drool.

UPDATE 3/8: Just heard from Todd over at 54Dean - they won't be at the Brooklyn Design show this year. Just an FYI...
