After searching every chandelier in LA, I fell in love with this rock crystal nugget chandelier from Studio workshops. My client in Newport Coast has the most incredible art collection from Asian antiquities to modern sculpture and art. This does it for me!
On a recent trip to LA we stopped in at my favorite antique resource. J.F. Chen, one of the best collections of 20th century modern furniture and art from some of the best designers around the world. Joel has two locations one is the "loft" and the other the "vault". If you can't find it at one of these locations it's not on the market. While access is to the "trade only" you can visit with your favorite designer. You can find some of Chen's collection here.
Here is the challenge: Create an intimate table setting using whatever is laying around.
My answer was Imari plates I just bought for $5 each, darn could not find persimmon colored chargers so banana leaves will have to do. I had this wonderful king sheet in a poppy color, it all works especially the antique Chinese tomb house. LOVE IT!
We all have something to celebrate about these days, and I can't get enough color! I set this festive party table in the corner of my living room with some of my favorite things. For a few of you lucky people who watch morning television you can catch my design tips on table settings and entertaining. (Good Morning Central Oregon airs my design tips the first Friday of every month).
