For the showroom we just ordered a Catherine Table Lamp from Castor's new Deadstock collection. We'll be stalking the postman for the next few weeks.
We stopped by Phillip Lim's space yesterday to drop off some A-Shades for his library. In the lobby we came across this beautiful sofa.
Looks like a Finn Juhl's sofa by One Collection to me !

Our beloved sales extraordinaire, Lydia Rodrigues, will soon be returning from a project she worked on in Milan with artist Adele Röder. The art/shop project is inspired by Sonia Delaunay's 'Atelier Simultane'. The process/experiment of this first art/shop project has made a reality for Röder to materialize her digital motifs into garments. The store was furnished with works by Martino Gamper, Gio Ponti and Franco Albini. The shop's last day open is tomorrow, March 31st so if you are in Milan, go check it out!
