a Holland-based company that works between 
avantgarde design & high tech industry,
has asked three world renown design stars
to re-design the lightbulb!!!!

Using low consumption LED technology,
have created two innovative &
extraordinary collection of lightbulbs ....
one for mass production & the other purely experimental,
produced in limited editions!!!

These are definitely "accessorator must-haves" ...
which are soon to arrive at my house!!!

The scope of my world as a "collector/accessorator" 
is rapidly expanding ....
interior, furniture, art, & design are becoming one!!!

It became especially apparent last week ....
when I wandered around NYC's first Frieze Art Fair!!!
And here's why ......

Artist Mickalene Thomas is working on a series of paintings 
that all references "interiors".

Furniture/sculpture from Max Lamb, Franz West, 
Richard Artschwager, Allison Katz
is both for sale by dealers & is being "used" in the booths.

Artists Gelitin, Matt Golden, & Olga Koumoundouros 
have incorporated "furniture" into their work.

Martino Gamper's & Hun-Chung Lee's "art" is furniture!!!

And finally ....,, 
English gallerist Stephen Friedman's booth 
is "furnished" & everything is for sale!!!

This confirms my newest theory .....
there is a single "dialogue" incorporating the worlds of 
art, interior, furniture, & design ......
making everything an "accessoration"!!!

"Pull Me Up" ..... Stools, Benches, or Tables in Milan!!!

The accessorator's pick for "trend du jour" at
Milan's Salone Del Mobile were .....

Perching, Sitting, Stacking, or Setting!!!

These "accessorations" were everywhere,
some were serious, some whimsical, some recycled, 
some shiny & new ......
but always accessible & flexible!!!

There were sooooo many divine choices that
 I think maybe I ordered them "all" ....
for my house in the country!!!
