Inspirational Tub from Davis and Warshow



This inspirational tub idea comes from the Davis & Warshow showroom in Manhattan. The tub design is encased in a stylish wood frame creating a different decorating feel for a bathroom. Where most bathrooms feature stone, tile, and resin based themes, the wooden tub creates a unique look altogether. I do like the fact that wood is not central to walls as well which allows me to appreciate this one accent touch while not creating a very "wood heavy" decorative theme. Via.

Cast Aluminum Outdoor Furniture from Summer Classics



When making a decision on outdoor furniture it can be hard to decide between wicker or a metal based product. Metal is certainly designed to last and that often sways consumers in their purchasing decision. The cast aluminum outdoor furniture here comes from Summer Classics as part of their "Estate" series. The chairs come in a decorative metal pattern as you would expect. I do like the table and how it appears "thicker" much like a dining table inside a home would. Decorative trim hangs off the edge of the table giving it a nice little accent. Via.

News Bulletin: Furniture Fashion Now Published on Amazon Kindle



Loyal readers, I have some great news this morning. Furniture Fashion is now being published on the Amazon Kindle. I am really happy about having my blog listed in the "Arts & Entertainment" section of Blogs. I am a big fan of Kindle having owned one for over a year now. I enjoy the ease of using it, downloading books for a fraction of the cost, and saving trees by being paperless. I understand that pictures are important to us and really help share inspiration in our reader community. Pictures are currently in black in white in the Kindle format, but some day I imagine color will be available for images.



There were over a 1,000 blogs listed under Arts & Entertainment as I browsed on my Kindle last night. I did not see Furniture Fashion amongst the top 200, but I hope to move that up in the future. It is understandable since we are a new publisher. I ran a search under Blogs for the word "furniture" and popped right up at the top. Here is a link for our listing on the Amazon website: Furniture Fashion on Amazon. I hope to find a way to run a promotion and give away subscriptions (if that is possible) to celebrate this event. If you have some time, I would love to hear from our readers if you can provide a "customer review" on Amazon since I believe that is a powerful way to support blogs and help other potential readers understand what the content is about.

HK10 Rin Chair from Fritz Hansen / Hiromichi Konno

The HK10 "Rin Chair" is the next Danish Modern "icon hopeful" that is also in harmony with Japanese design traditions.

Sardust : The Sofa Collection with LED Lights from Meritalia



Here a quite unusual furniture collection called Stardust, or "dust of stars", the first revolutionary product Mario Bellini signed for Meritalia. This is a new series of light padded pillows, ottoman, chaise lounge, armchairs, and sofas that use LED lights with a low power consumption / low voltage and high performance included within the individual pieces. The internal lighting of the Stardust turns them into real source of soft light which can vary throughout the range of colors. The idea was to use material similar to that used for package padding, a metallic mesh of thin steel wires for structure, and a transparent coating to create this ultra light weight collection that you can also take out back by the pool or patio. See the rest of Meritalia's "beyond the norm" furniture collection here.

Ness City Bank

I love architecture, especially architectural detail. We had read about Ness County Bank Building, a/k/a “The Skyscraper of the Plains”. Since we were just a few miles away this weekend, we decided to look at it. It has just recently been sandblasted, so we saw it in as pristine a condition as a 120-year-old building can be.

Since we were there on Sunday, the building was closed to the public. Someone was hosting a graduation reception there, which this lady was apparently attending.

The carvings are incredible. These are acanthus leaves on the front entrance. Note the gorgeous rounded corner detail just above the entrance column.

The beautiful front door reflects the entrance and some of the Ness City business district. The balloon is inside.

All those years of use have rubbed the front door latch to a beautiful finish.

Moorish attorney's office

This hand-carved door is beautiful in its own right, but looking at it through the wrought iron adds to its charm.
An attorney’s office is immediately adjacent to Ness County Bank Building. Even though the architectural styles differ, they compliment each other.

Here is the sunburst in greater detail.

The bottom of the door features panels showing six of the 12 zodiac signs. The libra panel is very appropriate for an attorney’s office.

This tile fountain was on the west side of the entrance. Unfortunately, it was not running at the time of our visit. It must sound very refreshing in the scorching dry heat of a High Plains summer.
Moorish attorney
A narrow courtyard separates the attorney from the bank building. It looked so inviting, but we didn’t enter.
Moorish attorney
Here is a slightly different view. I’d love to have an oasis like this next to my office, wouldn’t you?
