I came across an article I had torn out of the Wall Street Journal and it (along with a conversation with a friend in search of some lucite curtain rods) prompted me to share this today. Lux Holdups, created by Ashley Platt in 2013, is creating stylish and useful lucite home decor. Think curtain rods, towel rods, side tables, closet tabs, drawer pulls….or anything else you can dream up that is clear and shiny!
Perhaps it is the perpetual gray days that has me craving color. Or it might just be the super chic collection by Dallas based Sawyer Collection, created by the mother/daughter duo of Kim and Sawyer Bannister.
They have cleverly taken lucite to a new level, crafting one-of-a-kind pieces from bookends, to bowls and objets. You can choose a color infused tic-tac-toe game or a candy dish that is as delicious as anything you might fill it with. In other words….conversation pieces.
I especially love the juxtaposition that they create in a traditional or formal space. I know pink is my obvious choice, but I’m thinking I might need to jazz up my own interiors with a shot of an unexpected color.
Let’s battle those gray days….one chic, colorful piece at a time!
Accompanying Christopher to the event was interior designer, Sam Allen, who I first wrote about here 4 years ago and many times since. I’ve been following his burgeoning career with great enthusiasm and he has some very exciting news to share in early 2015. I promise to keep you posted!
Next stop for these two is L.A.’s Hollyhock, owned by renown designer, Suzanne Reinstein. It seems that Christopher is adding tabletop to his repertoire. Look for a big write up with the illuminating details in next month’s Architectural Digest!
