INTRODUCING...


I recently discovered two new (to me, anyway) lines that I simply had to share with everyone. Chicone Cabinetmakers is a shop on Taigan and makes the most darling little occasional tables. Each one is wrapped in snakeskin or linen and then coated in lacquer, giving it the most fabulous shine. I'm in love! 

Pagoda Red specializes in 19th century Chinese furniture and has recently added an "invisible" furniture line to their collection. Lucite furniture is one look I never tire of and I love this fun take on the traditional Ming furniture forms.
