1-2-3: New York Gift Show Trends: Textures

Today's 1-2-3 post continues to share some of my finds from the New York Gift Show last week with special attention to the many different textures that I saw almost in every stand.

It's not only about color statements for 2012, which thankfully are very strong statement pieces, but also the use and play of utilising *out of the box* materials allowing for a richer tactile experience as well as a visual one.

Whether encased within another object or completely exposed and almost too fragile to touch, here are a few that caught my eye.


Just a reminder that glass can have an enormous range in form and texture - I especially like this light fixture from Solaria that I think really hits the nail on the head for impact at a great price point.

I am imagining this on a dark wall giving off some really amazing light & reflections!

The wooden side table by Tritter Feefer (above) with an acrylic addition at it's base is just so beautiful. I love how they chose a dark finish here, but also think that this would look outstanding with a light finish as well..
Once again, Natural Curiosities presented a really great mix of materials, styles and choices of art always very beautifully framed.
Whether you are a Book Lover (like myself) or want to have Valentine's Day all year round with their Encased Roses piece, they are always a nice choice when decorating.

These Lucite boxes by Serge de Troyer.. not only can they store your furs (with a fun juxtaposition of these two materials) or use it as a coffee table with your books or magazines inside!
Just loved this piece in both sizes..

Mr. Brown has introduced a few new pieces this season - ranging from this textured chest, that almost feels as if it were made in plaster, to this small side table in a *burnt* wood to the console and lamps as the latest pieces (below) in a resin that has an incredible touch and a great alternative when creating a scheme where you don't want to introduce another piece of wood (natural or lacuqyered) or metal, etc..

  1. I love the Mr Brown tables and the bubbly glass lighting.

  2. This is exactly the right kind of advice for a blogger.
