Architectural Digest Home Show

The show was really interesting and I really should have taken more pictures. This picture is from the artist's website - these works were on a stainless steel "canvas" with etchings on them - the light did amazing things with them as well. Check out the web site at He does gorgeous work.

This isn't my style at all - it was in a glass medium and all I could think was how quickly those glass arms would shatter...

These stone water falls are so pretty - yes they have been around for a while, but that doesn't make them less beautiful....

This is one design idea I just really like a lot - using a small chandelier and lowering the height to place it where you might have a standing lamp - providing light and saving floor space. Like it!

Also like these fabric squares and extra long shelf creating interest in an uninteresting space (did you see the pictures of the New Joint Empty?)

The shelf is like a built in sofa table, again saving floor space. Like it :)

We spent about 2 hours wandering around the exhibits, generally oo-ing and ah-ing over lots of bath fixtures, kitchen appliances, automated closet organizers, furniture and art. This was a much more enjoyable show than the antique show 2 weeks ago. Some things I wish I had taken pictures of include the new burnt bronze appliance finish offered by Jenn Aire - just beautiful. Also, the huge round stone tub - it must have been 70" in diameter and weighed more than a ton. Over all it was a fun show and we enjoyed it :)
