Creed's gorgeous 2013 site specific work, 
created from 2" tape
in a variety of colors & patterns, 
with no repeat ....
covers the entire "grand staircase," 
& vestibule of this extraordinary space!!!

The stunning gallery, 
designed by architectural genius
formerly housed The Roxy, a 1980's roller disco

to 33 genuine "art stars"!!!
 
This incredible addition to NYC's "art scene" 
is an "accessorator's" visual

The quirky Spanish shoe company 
has a worldwide collection of retail stores, 
each unique, they are designed by renown 
international 
contemporary designers
& they are springing-up everywhere!!!!

I have seen incredible stores designed by 
& the Bouroullec Brothers ....
but, right now I am totally enthralled by this 
divine store in NYC!!! 
 
Located on Madison Avenue, across from Barneys, 
this spectacular NYC store is the creation of
the brilliant Brazilian design duo the

Handcrafted in Brazil the walls, window display, 
seating, & lighting is crafted of 
woven natural fibers ....
evoking a strong sense of the rainforest. 

The "transplastic" seating, considered a metaphor for 
the world of natural vs. synthetic,
is a recycled collection of
plastic chairs & tables that appear to be 
"growing" through the wicker.

This store is a Madison Avenue "must-see"!!!

Unfortunately, I can't tell you anything about the shoes ....
I was held captive by the environment!!!!

LA based artist Andrea Bowers' 
"Tree Sitting Platforms" combined art, design, 

& social consciousness
at NYC's Andrew Kreps Gallery at

A focal point at the fair,
these "perfect perches" of recycled materials 
are a sublime reminder 
of our responsibility to the environment.

This visually stimulating combination 
of "art & message" 
fits my aesthetic to a tee ......
& I would love having a "platform" hang
in my garden!!!
