We went to a few different areas/booths than we usually hit, and I can't even tell you how much the "new" Restoration look was raging. All Belgian-look, crazy-industrial, I-want-one-of-each, please kind of stuff!
One of the first places we hit was a booth owned by Houston-based design duo and publishers, Dot Dimiero and Dana Aichler (Design District). Everything was uh-ma-zing! HUGE mirrors with killer patina, zinc tables, unbelievable lights hardware and furniture, and interesting collections of sea life poised under glass cloches.
Nearby booths, filled with similar yummies. Can your eye stop on just one thing? Mine couldn't, but I did love those giant spools, all thrown together. And that ginormous Palladian mirror in the background would certainly see some love from me - if I had an equally grandiose space!
My second treasure was this pair of 1940's Aladdin lamps for Avery's room. They are milkglass, but I'm thrilled to see they've actually got a blush hue to them. They're in great condition, and I can't wait to get them matched up with the perfect shades.
So glad to be back - missed ya'll!!!
