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!!!

I returned to Carla Sozzani's
10 Corso Como last week 
during Milan's design extravaganza ....
& was again awed by the extraordinary talent of 
artist/designer Chris Ruhs!!!

This time I climbed the circular staircase 
above the gallery .....
to find this brilliant roof garden!!!

There was so much to see.....
murals, planters, furniture, mosaics, all things "art" .....
plus the spectacular garden folly!!!

It is the "ultimate accessoration of accessorations"!!!!
