The beautiful light fixture that you see above really caught my eye at ICFF and made me stop in my tracks to check out the booth of John Pomp Studios, a Brooklyn based company that specializes in custom glass design and lighting fabrication. Its proprietor, John Pomp, is a master glass blower and churns out some of the most gorgeous light fixtures you’ve ever seen.
Another piece I really liked was this custom light fixture called the 4-B Light designed by Pomp in collaboration with Roman and Williams
for the Royalton Hotel in New York.
Here they are in the Royalton’s restaurant, Braserie 44. Beautiful! Although ICFF was my introduction to John Pomp, his work seems as if it’s everywhere. His website states:
“john pomp’s current line of glass includes seductively shaped vases and lighting have been shown in numerous publications including house and garden, martha stewart living, wallpaper, vogue, instyle, one, W, city, real simple, elle décor, food and wine and on the front page of the house and home section of the new york times as well as the new york times magazine. he created an exclusive line of glass for tiffany & co. and donna karan’s new york flagship store and designed glass for an installation at jcrew’s rockefeller center store in new york city. his work is available at select stores including aero, jeffery, barneys new york, shelter in los angeles, elements in chicago, stanley korshak in texas, haus in arizona, hollace cluny in toronto and colette in paris.”
Clearly, all of the visibility and accolades are very well deserved!
UK-based wallcoverings company Graham & Brown had their latest offerings on display at ICFF and just about everything I saw there was lust-worthy. Here's a quick recap of my three favorite Graham & Brown collections from the show. Interestingly, all are collaborations with other designers….
Eco-Wallpapers: Above are four prints from Graham & Brown's line of environmentally friendly wallpapers. These were all designed in collaboration with London's Central St. Martins college, one of the world's top design schools. Their students participated in a challenge to have their designs reproduced by Graham and Brown for this fun new wallpaper collection. The competition produced five winning designs, all inspired by environmental issues, which are now available for $60 a roll here in the US. The papers are derived from 100% FSC managed forests and are manufactured from sustainable resources. Additionally, the patterns are printed using water based inks with no VOC's or solvents and each roll is packaged in compostable materials made from corn. Above are four of the five prints that are available. From L-R: Urban Birdcage, Rainforest, Bittern, and Fossil. Stylish, eco-friendly and affordable…what more could you ask for?
Marcel Wanders Couture: Dutch design wunderkind Marcel Wanders has partnered with Graham & Brown to design a collection of wallpapers called Couture. The collection includes eight prints available in various colorways and as the name suggests, the collection is heavily influenced by fashion. With names like Audrey, Stella, Grace and Isabella, each design evokes the spirit of a glamorous and aspirational personality. I think the photos above are so striking and they perfectly illustrate Wanders' attempt to blur the lines between interior design, architecture and fashion. The prints that you see are Stella (top), Henry (bottom-striped) and Suzanne (bottom, damask). This collection is priced at $75 per roll.
Monsoon: You're probably very familiar with the bold Chrysanthemum print wallpaper from Graham & Brown shown above in Gold but you may not have known that the print was the result of a collaboration with British clothing retailer Monsoon. The collection mirrors the brand's feminine, ethnic inspired aesthetic. The lower photo shown above is the line's Sophia print in Pebble. This style is a sophisticated and modern interpretation of a traditional damask pattern. All of the Monsoon prints cost $60 per roll. Love it!
On Monday I spent the day at ICFF. It was my first time visiting the show and I really enjoyed seeing all of the great design that was present. I definitely learned a lot and it was such a great experience so I thought I'd dedicate my next few posts to highlighting some of the standout products I saw there. First up is DwellStudio…
I'm already kind of obsessed with DwellStudio and their fun, modern prints so I was very excited to learn that the brand recently introduced a new line of custom window treatments available exclusively through The Shade Store. The stylish and affordable DwellStudio for The Shade Store
collection includes full length Drapery, three styles of Roman Shades, Laminated Roller Shades and Cornices…all available in an array of DwellStudio's signature prints. My favorite? The Chinoiserie Pearl…
Here's the Relaxed Roman Shade in the Chinoiserie Pearl Print. This option prices out at just $256 for a single, 30"x54" privacy lined shade with a standard cord lock. Not bad!
Here is a Pinch Pleated Drapery Panel in DwellStudio's Thicket print. This style starts at just $200 for a single width, 84" panel.
This is a Flat Roman Shade in the Sketch print and this style also starts at just $201 for a 30"x4" shade.
This photo shows both a Laminated Roller Shade and a Cornice in an adorable baby girl's nursery. Below are more photos of the DwellStudio for The Shade Store collection in prints geared towards the modern baby. How cute! Check out The Shade Store for more info!
I’m almost out of my favorite personalized stationery so I’ve been shopping around and wanted to share two very chic sets of correspondence cards that I’m loving right now…
This stylish stationery is from Horchow. I love the top two cards which feature a Chippendale print in either blue or red. I love that these are personalized in gold ink. So Haute! This style costs $154 for a set of 50 correspondence cards with personalized envelopes.
These cards are by Mr. Boddington’s Studio and are from their Kyoto collection. I love the chocolate colored Japanese tree lining and the very stylish “Henry” font. Prices for these start at $390.
