Whenever we have a chance to be part of the Kips Bay Showhouse, we consider ourselves lucky. This year, we were particularly excited when Alex Papachristidis asked up to supply a special pair of our Cole Porter Coffee Tables. What would make these tables special is that, above the parchment lower shelf, would be panels featuring the work of Nancy Lorenz! Ms. Lorenz studied lacquer techniques in Japan and creates amazingly vibrant works. We were not sure if her work had ever been used as a table surface, but like all of Alex's projects, it worked spectacularly well! His final touch was for us to finish the brass frames in a rose-gold tinted lacquer, which bring the tops and the frames together perfectly. Thank you Alex!
Earlier this year, we were thrilled when Harry Heissmann used our prototype Portal Sconce in the inaugural Designer Showhouse of New York supported by NYC&G. We first got to know Harry when he was working with the one and only Albert Hadley. As you can see in the photos below (courtesy of NYC&G and Harry Heissmann), his style delicately pushes the boundaries of interior design, which is only one of the reasons we enjoy working with him so much - thank you Harry!
