Happy Spring

With Spring in full force, and with the weather at such a nice temperature, we thought we'd share a picture of a beautiful outdoor dining table-- all set for lunch! Look how cute the menus are! There is so much to love about this tablescape.  What is your favorite thing about this photo?

Spring Market Review Designer Luncheon

We recently hosted our first annual Spring Market Review Designer Luncheon, where we invited some of our favorite outside designers to come in for lunch and a presentation of all the new Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Spring Market intro's!   Michael Cantwell of MGBW did a fabulous job of preparing a slideshow with all the new products.  Here is a quick look at what all went on...

Visual Comfort

One of our favorite lighting lines, Visual Comfort, just sent us their new product catalog for Spring 2010!  These pictures are just a few of the beautiful new things they have to offer.  The delicate Frenchy sconce, the matching chandelier, the fluted pendant light... All are just breathtaking!  Sadly, only a few of these products are currently available.  Most of them will not ship for several months...  But for now, they sure are fun to gaze at!
