Totem Sculptures – Ashley Hicks

somewhere near the top of my list of ‘very unnecessary’ desires is a tabletop sculpture from ashley hicks.

ashley is based in the uk. give him a holler. he’ll create a sculpture especially for you.

each sculpture is about 20 inches tall. each is unique. customizable. terribly un-british.

Michele Oka Doner

an artist of the first caliber. i had the good fortune to meet her in 2017.

we need more like her. those who bring chic, elegance, and beauty to the world.

she does…both in presence and deed.

Tea Time

upon arriving at home every evening, i generally unwind with a cup of tea.

i found this michael aram tea strainer at a local antique dealer and allow it to hover over  my favorite hermes cup and saucer

hardly an antique…i think it may date ‘way back’ to the 1990s

 

very louise bourgeois maman. french. chic.

Bishop Stools – India Mahdavi

every time i happen upon one of india mahdavi’s ‘bishop stools’, my reaction is that, in every ‘en situ’, it feels totally appropriate. no easy task. the bishop is that extra added ‘little layer of something’ every room needs. and we all know it’s the combination of layers + tension that keep a space interesting.

enameled ceramic. marble. mettalic. take your pick.
