cmi in the news — New England Home May/June 2012

I am so excited to be included in the May/June issue of New Eng­land Home Mag­a­zine! The "Per­spec­tives" sec­tion offers design­ers a chance to share some of their favorites — in this issue, it is light­ing. My smil­ing face is on page 144, and my light­ing picks are on 144, 146 and 148. If you don't have the mag­a­zine, go get it (and really, frame those pages…)

Or, check out my light­ing picks below:

Niven table lamp from Salgado Saucier

Niven table lamp from Sal­gado Saucier

With its delight­fully Gaudi-esque style, I would use this lamp to add a dose of whimsy to a tra­di­tional liv­ing room.

Chatham floor lamp from Currey and Company

This qui­etly styl­ish floor lamp would be equally at home in a tra­di­tional or more mod­ern home. It’s the per­fect com­pan­ion piece that attracts the eye with­out yelling “look at me!”

 

Brass and chrome Sputnik chandelier from Irwin Feld Design

Brass and chrome Sput­nik chan­de­lier from Irwin Feld Design

This mid-century fix­ture is one of my favorites, here updated with a mix of brass and chrome arms. I would hang it in a small foyer over an antique pedestal table for a vibrant counterpoint.

happy chic — chicago's jonathan adler store

While in Chicago, I had a chance to wan­der hap­pily through the Jonathan Adler store. So much fun packed into one small space! Even my 7 year old enjoyed it — he wanted their Union Jack rug for his bed­room, but left smil­ing with a groovy deck of play­ing cards! Enjoy the stroll… Jonathan Adler Chicago

light up my life…from Maitland-Smith

Oh, I need a beach house just so I can have this sconce! It's funky, orig­i­nal and slightly off­beat — don't you agree? In antique brass, from Maitland-Smith

I adore func­tional ele­ments in a home that elicit a smile as you walk by!

light my fire…from baker

This one is a show­stop­per! The Christal Chan­de­lier from Baker's Arbus Col­lec­tion is lean and nar­row, per­fect for a small space with high ceil­ings. The can­dle bulbs sit within a crown of crys­tal. The fix­ture is 43.75" long with a 13.5" diam­e­ter. Stunning!

And another lovely piece from the same col­lec­tion, the Coupelle Chan­de­lier. It's an intrigu­ing col­lec­tion of shapes that form a har­mo­nious whole.
