decorating porn 11/26 part 2

4 more of my favorites culled from the 12 pages of new listings on 1stdibs this week (and another 12 pages will be out in less than 12 hours! yikes! it's much too much muchness!)




spider base circular side tables
belvedere, atlanta
$3,700 ea.
how hot are these? love the fact that they have a drawer, so they can be used as nightstands as well (a drawer in a night table is a MUST). maison21 doesn't even mind the crackle finish!




lightolier hanging light fixture
20th century gallery, hudson, ny
2500
maison21 hesitates to use the word bargain in connection with anything on 1stdibs, but in this case it's appropriate, because this lightolier chandelier is like getting a jean royere chandelier without the extra zero on the price. all it needs is some conical shades...




curtis jere gazelle sculpture
collins & mccullough, miami
$1,800
maison21 is mad for animals (the m21 atelier looks like a brass and porcelain petting zoo), and this c. jere gazelle is especially fine. i've never seen this particular animal by jere, and at 3 feet all, it's a whole lotta sculpture for the price.




decorative patio suite
sultana, san francisco
$3,200
designed for the patio, this set would be equally fab indoors. one of the chicest decoristas i know here in los angeles scored a similar sofa for a song on ebay not so long ago (don't think i don't notice when you outbid me, jennifer! :)

Love that 'bargain' chandelier.

I am on the hunt for sconces just like in Blair's apartment in Gossip Girl. Do you watch that show?

They kind of remind me of this:

But they are not so wild, not so big. Perfection.

Dear Monsieur Maison, thank you Sooo much for all your design help on my post - really appreciated it - as did DY and the fact that you like his light choice - you lads need to stick together:-)
I rather like the yellow outdoor ensemble - so sorry that you missed out on it - tho by the sounds of it , you know who won & you can go around & visit her & enjoy it anyway - or be totally bugged every time you see it!
Ah the joys of ebay.....

inspire, i watched a screener pilot for gossip girl this summer, and quite enjoyed it- delicious trash- but haven't seen it since. you've now given me a reason to tune in! (yes, i will watch tv for sconces). i've always loved those michael taylor sconces and have a photo of them saved for future inspiration.

and ATBB, i'm always thrilled to visit pretty things- i can't own them all, much as i would like too! good luck with your wall appliques!

OK, Maison, I have done a post today on the Gossip Girl sconces. Your post was the inspiration! Please post a comment, because everyone needs to discover you. (I discover a lot of my new blogs from posts in other blogs).
