The Hunt Goes Outdoors with Holly.

I’m really like Holly Hunt’s outdoor furniture collections. My vendor list for outdoor accessories and furnishings seems to grow and grow each season with the addition of new and high quality outdoor and casual indoor furniture lines. Holly Hunt’s teak and powder-coated metal pieces have a tailored and fresh contemporary palette and are hand-crafted to last a lifetime. Open the windows and doors wide and see for yourself… for years to come.

Doggy Door Knockers.

I was lounging on a boat a few months ago chatting up ideas with my honey  and I began to wonder if there was a way to get a door knocker in the exact likeness of my pup Alpha without spending a gazillion dollars. With the recent emergency pet hospital room visit (cha-ching), anything custom is going to have to go hide in the dog house for a little while. In the interim, Michael Healy satisfies my yearning with his collection of handcrafted solid bronze door knockers sand casted as popular dog breeds — mine being the German Shepherd Dog – of course.

They are all cute and sure to bring a smile on the face of any house guest, UPS man, or the Publishers Clearing House guy holding that big check you always dreamed you might win. <wink>

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.
