Koket's Mademoiselle armoire at Laura Lee Clark

SPRING FORWARD . . . even if it means we have to get up earlier these days, at least spring gives us permission to love color. And butterflies. This exquisitely designed armoire is by Koket, a New York-based company that's only three years old! And, according to their website, everything at Koket is made by hand in Portugal by artisans and jewelers. Laura Lee Clark in Dallas (one of my blog partners) has just picked up the beautiful Koket line, which you'll be able to view when she moves to her big new showroom space in mid April. Stay tuned for more amazing lines at Laura Lee Clark, which I'll be covering here and in Modern Luxury Interiors Texas.

New Lighting . . .
Chameleon's Ballo pendant
I love covering what new products my blog partners are bringing in, because it's always a beautiful surprise. Jim Williamson at ID Collection sent me some pieces from Chameleon Fine Lighting's newest collection, and I'm in awe of how simple and stunning it is. The Ballo, above, is influenced by antique Murano balloon shapes, he tells me. With clean hardware and clear glass handblown in Venice, it comes plated in any finish. Below, the Conica is wrought from a sheet of brass that's spun on wheel. It takes its influences from Deco and Post Modern design; these fixtures are hanging in the bar at the famous Pierre Hotel in New York City.

New Tiles . . .
McIntyre plaid stone tiles from New Ravenna 
This has to be one of the most delightful new tile collections out this spring. New Ravenna's floor tile collection is based on Scottish plaids and charming ginghams, and are rendered in stone and  glass. I love the dusty grays as much as the pretty pinks, greens and blues. They're sold through Ann Sacks and Renaissance Tile and Bath.

New Furniture . . . 

Andriessen Lounge Chair by Gregorius Pineo at Culp Assocciates

The hand-forged, hammered iron bases of Gregorius Pineo's new spring collection of furniture look really fresh and modern, don't they? The lines are just right, and the finishes are gorgeous. The iron bases are constructed to be actually lightweight, I'm told (note the the chair legs, which are not solid but made at right angles); the table tops are rift oak—in a new Kalahari finish— and go perfectly with the textured finish on the iron bases. To me, this is rustic done right. All at Culp Associates (another blog partner). I'm going to be writing more about Gregorius Pineo for Interiors Texas, so stay tuned.
