studio saturday: new arrivals

It’s been a while since my last Studio Saturday update, and unfortunately it’s because I don’t have a lot to report.  Lisa Mende and I have both been busy, busy, busy — which has left little time for studio organization and decorating.  On the positive side, some of our earlier orders are starting to roll in.

Lorts 3317 Lamp Table in OysterThis gorgeous Lorts lamp table is winging its way to us now, along with some fantastic backless bar stools upholstered in a shimmery linen.  Yum!!  Most furniture will be available by special order only, but we are really thrilled to have pieces we can sell off the floor.  Of course, we are also at the mercy of some back orders and/or long lead times.  It’s the bane of a designer’s existence!  But as I preach to my clients, it is worth waiting for what you want.

Thibaut Biscayne Rinca PillowsOne of the reasons I love Thibaut so much is that they carry good stock on almost all of their fabrics and wallpapers.  Hello, designing on a deadline!  Can you guess which colorway of their Rinca fabric will be appearing in the studio?  Now I just need to figure out exactly how we are going to hang our window treatments.  Between the wall of glass windows fronting the studio and our drop ceiling … it’s a good thing I’ve got a team of experts on speed dial!

Infinity Rings SculptureI’ve also been unpacking art and accessories.  This gorgeous Infinity Rings sculpture is now in stock, along with a great set of coffee table books and these super fun Giant Jacks.

Jayden's Giant Jacks SculptureWe are especially excited to welcome some new artists to the studio, including Harrison Blackford.  You can read more about her on Lisa’s blog today.  I’m crazy for this 36″x48″ piece entitled “Sweet World.”

Sweet World painting by Harrison BlackfordOf course, I have Traci Zeller Home candles for sale … and a brand-new shipment of my Traci Zeller for Design Accents pillows.

Traci Zeller Loophole Applique PillowGive us a buzz if you’d like to stop in.  Our summer hours may be a touch irregular, but we can’t wait to welcome you inside!  Remember we’ll be hosting a Grand Opening Party in August, so stay tuned for more information on that.

Hey, maybe I did have a lot to share after all!  What’s been keeping you busy?

happy independence day

Happy July 4th Joan BorawskiIsn’t this a spectacular illustration by Joan Borawski?  I love how she captured the exuberance of the holiday, paired with our flag.  It’s such a lovely reminder of how fortunate we are to be living in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.  So many men, women and families have sacrificed so much for us to enjoy our comfortable lives.

Traci Zeller Textiles Sparkler TwinsI also smile every time I think about these gorgeous twins with my Sparkler fabric.  With twins in tow, who needs fireworks?!

Dream Big Sparkle More Shine BrightOn this long weekend — and every day — I hope you dream big, sparkle more, and shine brightly!
