JEANNE’S LIST OF PRETTY PICKS FROM DWELL ON DESIGN
The tiles below have a mid-century modern vibe to it which I love. They are fun, whimsical, and a great way to brighten up a room.
The Aurora Lamp by THE GOOD FLOCK
Simple but stylish, the Aurora Lamp by The Good Flock can be used as a table lamp or mounted on the wall or ceiling. When outfitted with an Edison bulb the looks is vintage, whereas when a reflective half chrome bulb is used, the look is sleek and modern, with the wood base bringing a little bit of warmth to the room.
Hand forged bronze furniture from ORGANIC MODERNISM
Using glass tops on the dining and coffee tables enables all to see the fluid, organic bronze base below.

Tile from BEDROSIANS
We all know how much herringbone patterned tile is trending, and the example below is no exception. Again – simple, subtle, and classic. This one is a sure winner.

The “Cabrits” tub from VICTORIA + ALBERT
Beautiful design, contoured for maximum comfort, water efficient – what else could you possibly ask for in a tub? The “Cabrits”, like all Victoria + Albert tubs, is made of volcanic limestone which is finely ground and mixed with a high quality resin. The result is an extremely light, but durable material that is stain and scratch resistant. One solid piece of composite, you can use almost any type of cleanser without having to worry about compromising the coating, since it has none.
The photo I took did not do the tub justice, so here is a PR pic from Victoria + Albert. Beautiful, isn’t it? As I conversed with Brian, business development manager from Victoria + Albert, no less than four people hopped into the tub and took pictures of themselves, presumably to post to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! You know if it’s being posted across social media channels, it’s gotta be a winner!

BEST Range Hoods
Make a design statement in your kitchen with a Best range hood, where attention is given to both form and function. Not your typical range hood, I did a double take as I walked by the Best booth. Modeled after modern, sleek Italian design, the Best range hood is sure to be a conversation piece in the kitchen.
The Desert Collection from CAMBRIA
The same evening after seeing Seth Parks at the Dwell on Design show, I attended a tour of the Dwell Labs apartments, in the heart of Hollywood at the corner of Hollywood and Vine (1600 Vine), and I spotted Seth Parks’ hand blown glass fixtures lighting up the breakfast table and the living room of a unit designed by ASID designers Cynthia Lambakis and Samantha Williams. I apologize that my photo below does not show the definition of each individual hand blown appendage.
I hope you enjoyed my list of pretty picks from Dwell on Design. Any favorites? Let me know in the comment section!
