Heavy Mexican Metal.

When I began my tenure at the interior design firm where I am still employed (thank the heavens), my resourceful self came across a line of furniture that was unique in style, very hand-crafted in looks, and simple in form. A specific dining chair caught my attention and because of this perfect find, eight upholstered peices now take residence in the dining room of one of our clients homes. This side chair, called the Opera, is made by artisans at Mexico based Casamidy.

Started in 1998 by two designers, Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada, Casamidy is the result of a need for creative exploration and a joint visit to Hermes. Months after that visit, the two moved to Mexico to become immersed in the use of metals, leathers and fabrics that make up much of the numerous furniture and accessory lines.

Inspired by areas tiles, locations, and vista throughout the world, Anne-Marie and Jorge employ top iron-smiths to fabricate their ideas into long-lasting and one of my favorite furniture lines now favored among top interior designers and home decor magazines across the world.
