Unseasonably cold temperatures in Austin, Texas on Friday closed the schools, covered the roads in ice and snow and had many retail establishments opening late or not at all. This Scottsdale, Arizona interior designer was none too pleased with the situation. Luckily, I found LOFT.
Needless to say, it was not crowded as many had simply stayed at home on this frigid day. A lovely young designer by the name of Mary was at the store waiting for a truck load of new furniture to arrive. She had the schematic space plan all sketched out in anticipation.
My sister and I browsed the offerings at LOFT at a leisurely pace and I began snapping pictures with my phone camera.
Here are some of the great items I wanted to share _
2 great examples of the current revival of BRASS finishes.
Look up! A sinuous pendant ceiling fixture that would be great over a dining table, a kitchen island or even in a bedroom. It reminds me of a tailored woman’s suit in design. Clean lines yet with curve.
This table lamp almost came home with me. It reminded me of the sand art projects I did as a child.
A great conversation piece in a casual family room setting !
And perhaps my favorite find of all……..this amazing chest made from reclaimed wood with an unexpected design element of what else? BRASS hardware.
So, if you are ever in Austin, Texas, make time to visit LOFT at the Domaine shopping area. If you can’t get to Austin, you can check out they web site at www.lofthome.com
