What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Architectural Digest Design Show 2018


AD 1

VanCollier’s navy sofa with cobalt accessories was so beautiful, we nearly wept!

It’s taken me a couple of weeks to organize my photos, but I am pleased to share with you my highlights from this year’s Architectural Digest Design Show. I confess that overall, Bestie and I came away a little underwhelmed this year, but it was still a great day. And there were certainly many truly exceptional artists and makers. We just found ourselves longing for buckets of money a little less often than usual.

Here are a few of my faves:

AD 2

The pure geometry of the furniture in the Bones Studio by Ryan Dart booth stopped us dead in our tracks. This surprisingly comfortable sofa is made entirely of wood and those dark spots are empty space. Fascinating!

AD 5

I loved everything in TileBar‘s booth, but this Art Deco fan mosaic positively slayed me!

AD 3

I’m a sucker for anything nautical, and these lightweight, solid cherry, decorative paddles by Norquay Co. really spoke to me!

AD 4

And speaking of all things nautical, these topographical map-looking silk rugs by Castelluxe really wowed us!

You can see all of the beautiful items we discovered in my Flickr album.

  1. Gorgeous! I had a hard time figuring out that sofa in the second pic, but after reading your description a few times and realizing what it was, I was blown away by it. The navy and cobalt, the fan tiles….*swoon*!

  3. I’ll need to check out your album when I get a chance. I love that rug and I’m fascinated by that sofa. It looks solid for a start but I’m also intrigued by the idea of it being comfortable. I imagine getting up off it and having crosshatch marks embedded in my flab.
