Oh Jonathan! and Everything Else in the Nutshell...


I am heading over to the San Francisco Design Center tomorrow for a little walk-about. It is design san francisco 2013 tomorrow through Friday and that means three days to check out the latest and greatest in the design world in the City by the Bay. I always make a point of going every year to meet the talented creators of furniture and fabric that come to show their newest products.

This year Jonathan Adler is presenting his new line of fabrics for Kravet, and signing his newest book, 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life. I've got mine, do you? Jonathan made his start as a potter creating beautiful vases, bowls, and various and sundry knickknacks for the home. Most of you know he has since branched out into a hugely successful interior design empire..... furniture, area rugs, pillows, lighting....you name it! (And if you did not know, I am here to tell you... keep up.)

SO! I am excited to get to meet Jonathan and see his newest line! I thought you might like to see a bit of what I am talking about......



Fun huh? 


If anyone needs anything, you just give me a call!



I also get to spend the day with two of my favorite designer friends and catch up with them. We have all worked together at one time or another but have since followed our own paths, so I am excited to hear all of their news! 

We will also be checking out the newest fabric line from LULU DK's Lulu deKwiatkowski at the Donghia Showroom. She will be there to present it. Excited!

I have been buying quite a bit of fabric from the Rose Cumming for Dessin Fournir Collections line lately, so am thrilled to be attending an event honoring her at the Kneedler Fauchere Showroom. There is a beautiful new book about her life that I will be adding to my collection, the first one written in fact......Rose Cumming by Jeffrey Simpson from Rizzoli (so you know it's going to be good), so stay tuned for more on that.....


After all of the design center fun winds down for the day, I will be heading over Salt House for a bite to eat with the girls.....LOVE this place!


That is my day in a Nutshell.....do you have any plans?
