German designer Ingo Maurer &
British company Established & Sons
presented Maurer's "Floating Table" last month 
in Milan during Design Week.

The round table has the illusion of being "legless"  
but really "stands" on four bentwood chairs 
that are hinged to the tabletop.

An exciting & innovative "accessoration divine,"
the chairs slide in & out
for easy access!!!

Spanish industrial designer Alvaro Catalan de Ocon
worked with displaced Columbian craftsmen,
to recycle plastic waste 
that is polluting the Amazon River.

The collaboration resulted in the creation
of this divine light fixtures .... 

The shades are woven by artisans 
over recycled plastic bottles, 
& are then sent to Madrid 
to be made into stunning light fixtures!!!

This fixture "accessoration supreme" 
was hanging in the garden at
in Milan!!!

especially the nice touch of neon orange,
another 2013 trend!!!
