decorating porn 11/16

a client of mine once described 1stdibs as decorating porn. i thought that description was brilliant, because for design junkies like moi, it is indeed the stuff of which fantasies are made.

a few items maison21 is drooling over from this weeks new listings:



lucite base coffee table

5800
gustavo olivieri antiques
water mill, new york

i love lucite. love, love, love.




grosfeld house louis xv style writing table
david duncan antiques
new york,
not priced
someday, maison21 would like to design a home filled with nothing but 1940's pieces from grosfeld house and maison jansen. so GLAM. the color combo is really working for maison21 as well- he is LOVING all things blue-y-green-y and gold.



quan yin lamps,
burke and comapany,
sarasosta, fl.
2200
how great would these quan-yin lamps look on that grosfeld house desk- girly, yes, but completely fab too.




chan li console by phillip and kelvin la verne,
todd merrill, new york, not priced

maison21 shudders to think of the price of this, but thinks it would be worth every penny spent. love the tension of the brutal etched metal material and the delicate chinoiserie scene depicted. todd merrill has one of the finest selections in the business, so it's no surprise that he is offering this amazing piece.
