christmas is right around the how the year has flown by, we'll have officially been on the scene for 3 years! can you believe it? here's a little treat of what we've been working on to make your holiday gift giving a little easier.

ochre isn't just a color

i just love ochre, i can't get enough of the hand blown glass and how it adds just a touch of jewelry to a room without being overly stuffy..found this (oversize artic pear chandelier) on a blog somewhere out there on the internet, so sorry, i'm terrible at crediting and blogging at that..enjoy..

remember we have our own little mini version in the showroom and they can be special ordered as well.

we also outfitted the cafe/lounge at h.i.f.f. again this year, they are celebrating 30 years right now! go by and check it out..there's special postcards there that if brought into the store will entitle you to 10% off anything.

well noir, how cute are you?

our new pieces are slowing trickling in, sometimes it's like christmas up in here. i think you need to come and visit these pieces ASAP. they are to die for and you don't have to sacrifice your first born, or an arm, or a leg... noir furniture was introduced to us a few months back and we've been agonizing over what pieces to purchase first.

noir is stocked in LA which makes ordering much quicker.. so if there's something you want, we're here to help. the pieces are a perfect match for us and we couldn't be happier. these are just a few of the items from their extensive line:

the dome chair!

my absolute favorite, this console table...

and this cute little coffee table.

see you soon!!!!

lego my abode.

i'm a huge fan of top gear, all 3 of these guys have me forgetting a bad day and laughing while simultaneously drooling throughout an hour. while channel surfing a few weeks ago i came across "james may toy stories" and was floored by this show. this is my favorite episode so far.

the lego house!!!

an inspirational chalk

last night i got my july catalog for anthropologie, i'm a huge huge fan..i wish we had one here, along with it's sister store urban outfitters. the dresses, jewelry, home stuff is all so whimsical. and everyone knows that the best sales are only in the store. their store and window displays are always something to marvel over..there have been many a cool one come and go, i could say that i draw a lot of inspiration from them. i've heard that every store is different because they let their associates go carte blanche but that could just be a rumor.

last year while working on one of our ads, i wanted to play around with this idea of working with chalkboard and drawn in accessories. unfortunately, time and budget were against me so i never got to see my vision come to life..and anthropologie beat me to it. great job!! i love this.

now does someone want to volunteer to build me a chalkboard set?

hello j. adler!

hello fishees.

we've got a brand new addition to our store. i have been dying to tell you all about this for months now but had to keep mum before we jinxed ourselves. please help me welcome the jonathan adler line, we are official resellers for the brand, yippee!!! in the months to come, we'll be receiving some fun upholstery pieces, casegoods, and accessories.

i loved watching j.a. on top design. his funky sensibility always puts a smile on my face, i wonder what ever happened to that show? anyway, i'm digressing. the line has a fun 50's/60's vibe that we think fits right in with our meridiani, consignment, and art pieces. these pieces won't break the budget either with sofas starting at $1700. i can't wait to start showing all the great things that start arriving.

here is the trousdale floor lamp in white, kea is a little annoyed that i made her pose so you could see the proportions of the lamp. don't mind her, she isn't having a good hair day.

we also will be getting new alice supply co. very shortly. stay tuned for new hammers and screwdrivers, along with garden tools, and more tool boxes. i can't wait! keep you posted..

success is in the bag.

dear fishers....

thank you so much for coming out to support tcm. the mystery bags sold out in 45 minutes!!!! we didn't anticipate such a frenetic response and are beyond amazed as well as thankful that so many of you helped us create a fabulous party. it was a success working with tcm, ka, swam, and modern luxury, it's always great to work with such a fantastic team of people, we can't wait for the next event.

i was a little disappointed that i wasn't able to get a bag.....these were some of the cool pieces that i was coveting and some lucky people scored for only $50 bucks. trust me..they are drool worthy.

this untitled piece by jason teraoka...

this tae kitakata, "if i have to explain you'll never understand", you gotta love that!
and this drawing by russell sunabe

currently one of our favorite artists..melissa rivera torres moir.

we are still looking for interesting pieces for consignment. and we also have some really fun stuff coming for inventory...the details are a little on the down low right now...hang in there for the big reveal.
