exhibited 
a collection of the work of furniture dealer/artist
at Design/Miami 2012.
 
The installation created by gallery owner
a great friend & collector of Loughlin's work,
celebrated the legendary artist.

A dealer since the 60's, Loughlin began painting
his signature motifs on 
"found" recycled furniture" .....
picked-up at flea markets & thrift stores
in the 80's. 
 
His quirky signature motifs included ...
a man with a cigarette, 
Zippo lighters & other thematic emblems 
of the times.
 
Johnson has also published a book titled
featuring his collection of furniture 
with Loughlin's iconic imagery.
 
I adored the pieces but,
 had a special response to the mirror,
which has a logo sticker with the Greek letters 
of my college sorority ...
Sigma Delta Tau!!!
 
Very 1960's ....
now considered very vintage!!!

Glorious, Glamorous, & Gorgeous ..... Creel and Gow!

A first stop during Milan's Salone del Mobile,
