“The new Canaletto Walnut Quartz Buffet with glass shelves has stunning detail and pairs up nicely with the Spyder Canaletto Walnut Dining Table. This new vendor from Italy has so many wonderful design pieces that it is difficult to choose just one item.  The warmth of the wood is a wonderful juxtaposition with the hard angles on the front of the piece.  Marry it with more wood, with glass or just let it sit on its own and shine.” – Kathy Bootle

“What I’m loving right now is the use of so many metallics in leather, furniture and accessories adding that little bit of glam to a room as well as the softness of neutrals and using colorful Murano glass as accent colors. One of my favorite metallic accessories are the Cindy Table Lamps – the different colors and sizes make these the perfect accents to any table. The Fenice Dining Table has a beautiful Murano Glass base, while the Caroline Cocktail Table blends metallics with natural wood seamlessly. Glass continues to steal the show in the Ca’ D’oro Table and the Alain Chandelier. The blue sky and almost endless sunny days give South Florida incredible light quality so these metallics add a pop of color; the neutrals are soothing and cooling. These tables all offer a wonderful place to display your treasures.” – Gail Bennett

“We are starting to see case goods like a nightstand and chest of drawers in curved wood, like the Andy Nightstand. These pieces are available in lacquers or plain wood and some vendors even offer a leather wrapped model.  It is a wonderful design trick to add different textures and colors to your project. Adding different unexpected shapes and curves is such a bonus and adds such sophistication. Love it!!” – Kay Smith

“What I love right now is the juxtaposition of nature with hard contemporary lines. Natural Woods paired with steel or chrome expresses it best!  The comforting feel of real solid wood mixed with the design elements of contemporary minimal and clean make this look very popular, just look at the Versaille Dining Table.  This style, if you will appeals to many people and crosses from transitional to modern to soft contemporary. Since this look is so strong be careful and only choose one or two pieces – think about treating it like art – less is more!” – Michele
