The "accessorator" believes that color is key for 2010 ..... and The Conran Shop,
reopening last week at ABC Carpet & Home, features 
a stunning summer palette!!! 


Designed exclusively for Conran's, the multi-colored, multi-striped sofa is the jumping off point for the season ........ and accessories, including everything from pillows, rugs, clocks, vases, outdoor umbrellas, lighting, and even candles, follow suit!!! Turquoise, red, chartreuse, fuchsia, orange, yellow, and grass all play off of each other ..... making the store look delicious!!!! The assortment also includes plenty of neutrals; black, white, taupe, and grey that "ground" the bright colors ..... as well as keeping the clean, contemporary mood that the store is known for. In addition to an extensive furniture and accessory collection that includes a variety of silhouettes, materials, and fabrications, Conran's continues to carry a well edited selection of stunning white dinnerware and glassware ...... focusing on shapes that are classical and elegant, while still looking modern.


According to owner Sir Terrence Conran, "Good design is 98 per cent common sense and 2 per cent mystery," a theory that is evident throughout this innovative & exciting ....... yet, classic & contemporary ......... new space!!!! 


Welcome back Conran's ...... we really missed you!!!!!!

Lots of news about the fantastic collection of "revisited" furniture that I had made by in London ...... Squint for j.roaman is featured in the trend section of the November issue of House Beautiful and on the updated j.roaman website.


The furniture is a combination of vintage, gently-used, and reclaimed silhouettes of English furniture..... all re-upholstered by hand, in a variety of vintage and new damasks, velvets, silks, quiltings, and French tickings. The eclectic, "bespoke" collection includes couches, chairs, chaises, mirrors, ottomans, and light fixtures....all in excellent condition. Each unique piece knows divine secrets..... and if it could talk would tell exciting and interesting tales!!! 


The collection is an "accessorator's" dream....actually it was this "accessorator's" dream!!!!!!!!!!!!
