I adored my visit to Dallas ....
I saw sooooo much fabulous art & incredible design ....
I went into a spin!!!
 
I flipped over everything in this house ...
it's owner is an over-the-moon 
"accessorator supreme"!!!
 
But, I can't get this sublime dinning room 
out of my mind!!! 
These fabulous vintage textiles 
pieced into these sublime "table-mats" 
are brilliant!!!
 
I imagined all the textiles in my closet .... 
incredible African cloth remnants, 
fantastic ikat fabrics,
& the vintage quilt pieces sitting 
on the top shelf!!!
WOW .... I'm off to the seamstress now!!!
 
And the chairs are spectacular too!!!!

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!!!

Buckling Up in Milan ...... An Unusual Kinda' Bench!!!
