Life Sized Lamp Shade Moments

Lighting as a surreal art form…

seated man lamp

These two dramatic human form lamps with oversized shades are Italian.  They make quite a statement, don’t they?

life sized horse lamp

The horse lamp is also life-sized. I ran across this one in Los Angeles while out resourcing. This one will fill a room and give your guests plenty to talk about!

If there is a topic you would like to read about, please let Courtney Price Design know! Have a great day~

The Indoor Allure of Outdoor Velvets

Finally, fabrics that make your outdoor spaces an extension of your indoor style– outdoor velvets.  Not only do they offer a chic seasonal change for outside,  but they provide practical benefits that will make you want to experience the luxury inside as well.  These soft plush velvets are virtually indestructible; they are made of 100% solution died acrylic, fortifying them against the wear of entertaining, kids & pets– making them increasingly popular choices for dens, game rooms, and high usage living areas.  They come with a 3 year warranty against fading and are extremely cleanable- most spills bead up and roll off to the floor. If you would like more information contact us.

PS- If you would like to get your pets their own cool furniture, go to Uttermost. I dare you to not buy something!

 

Eric Zener Show

The latest Eric Zener show opened last week in New York at  Gallery Henoch.  I have been following this artist for a while and continue to be amazed by his ability to capture moving water so accurately.  If you are in New York, stop by to see his exhibit, or check the gallery website at Gallery Henoch.
