Since I came across so many things I loved at the Las Vegas Market, and I didn’t want to cram them all into one post (because who has the time to read a post that long) today I’m featuring furniture (not seating) and accessories.
The first showroom we wandered into was full of Jonathan Adler accessories. (We even saw a few items that were used in our hotel rooms at the Cosmopolitan.) I love these modern interpretations of some of our favorite animals.
I am a total sucker for anything made with natural wood grain on display for all to see. This is a great dining room table for spaces on the smaller side.Speaking of natural wood grain, this showroom was full of it. And they took it one step further: a lot of the pieces here had one or two edges that looked as though someone had sliced a tree and left a side unfinished. I loved this detail about these tables. They also used these little butterfly notches in all their tables, which doubled as structural reinforcement and aesthetic design detail. I think this chair is so interesting and organic looking. Probably not the most comfortable, but definitely a conversation piece worth having in the right space. These are paper! Not cut to look like this, just made like this. The showroom rep suggested them as room dividers or artwork. Very cool. How about these books carved from wood? They don’t open, but would still look awesome on display in a living room or home office.
These sculptures are great modern pieces for a mantle or large bookcase. More accessories to love, especially the combination of white and gold in the shelves on the left. And don’t you just love that rhinoceros pillow on the right? Sometimes it’s the simple things done well that get me excited. I thought this grouping of pillows was a well curated collection of shapes and patterns. Cow hide? No, it’s wood! So striking, I love the high contrast wood grain. This photo does not do this table justice. It is a shimmery silvery metallic with some kind of layer of acrylic over top. It felt like it would be very durable, yet it looks so delicate. This credenza is so unique, with metal sliding doors and circular handles the best part is in the next photo…Just look at the texture! This material covered the frame on all sides.
This is more or less the headboard I want in my bedroom at home. (Hopefully soon!) There were a few vignettes I really enjoyed at the Market, like this one. It just looks so cozy. Again with my love for natural wood grains, and the unexpected use of chrome I mentioned last week. This combination of wood and lacquer is really interesting, and actually reminded me of a wood and marble cheeseboard my sister gave me for Christmas. What a great outdoor dining solution for a small space, like many of the small gardens and patios here in LA. The benches mimic the pattern on the table top, and they tuck under the table perfectly like puzzle pieces.I LOVE this bold area rug!! Now, where can I put it? Another fun vignette, at the entrance to the Jaipur rug showroom. These plants may all be fake, but lent plenty of inspiration for the real thing. I would love to have a little collection of these hanging planters, maybe with some air plants or succulents. Books at an angle are so much more interesting than books straight up and down! This tree trunk stool looks like it would be surprisingly comfortable.
This media cabinet is so pretty. The shape is definitely a little mid century modern. But there’s also an element of unfinished or reclaimed wood on the left, and beautiful finished natural wood grain patterns on the right. So, I did a double-take on this one. It is literally made entirely of carved marble! I’m guessing it is incredibly heavy to transport. A little glamour for the bedroom. I love the gold star knobs and the combination of te dark wood frame and white drawers. Next week it’s all about lighting, so stay tuned!
What was your favorite piece this week? What were you surprised by?
