Since my trip to Brazil last fall,
I am in love with all things Brazilian!!! 

Especially furniture .....
& especially the work of designer

Tenreiro, a major force in modernist Brazilian furniture,
was born in Portugal & moved to Rio de Janeiro
in his 20's.

Influenced by the warm weather of Brazil, 
his pieces were light .....
often combining wicker or cane with 
indigenous Brazilian hardwoods.

I was delighted to see this DIVINE dinning set at
& am wondering if it will fit in my dinning room!!!

What more I say,
I ADORE everything Prouvé!!!!

And I think, the most extraordinary collection 
of Prouvé's work is at 
Galerie Downtown in Paris!!!

Gallery owner François Laffanour
has again exhibited an incredible selection of work ...
furniture, fixtures, & this incredible "structure"
(see blog 12/1/11 for 2011 installation)

I am awed by everything .....
but I think the door is staggeringly beautiful!!!

I can't imagine what François has up his sleeve for 2013!!!

The scope of my world as a "collector/accessorator" 
is rapidly expanding ....
interior, furniture, art, & design are becoming one!!!

It became especially apparent last week ....
when I wandered around NYC's first Frieze Art Fair!!!
And here's why ......

Artist Mickalene Thomas is working on a series of paintings 
that all references "interiors".

Furniture/sculpture from Max Lamb, Franz West, 
Richard Artschwager, Allison Katz
is both for sale by dealers & is being "used" in the booths.

Artists Gelitin, Matt Golden, & Olga Koumoundouros 
have incorporated "furniture" into their work.

Martino Gamper's & Hun-Chung Lee's "art" is furniture!!!

And finally ....,, 
English gallerist Stephen Friedman's booth 
is "furnished" & everything is for sale!!!

This confirms my newest theory .....
there is a single "dialogue" incorporating the worlds of 
art, interior, furniture, & design ......
making everything an "accessoration"!!!

One of my favorite designers
has become the "accesoartor" supreme 
for the Merci pop-up store 
that arrived in Milan yesterday ....
to be part of 

I adore Navone's bold combinations of 
black & white graphic designs!!!

They are a wonderful compliment 
to the merchandise selection
that the concept store Merci is know for!!!!
