Lit Dale Chihuly Sculpture
Alright, so maybe a lit Chihuly is a bit much as a chandelier for your home. But that’s no reason not to incorporate sculpture with a glow. Lets explore the world of sculpture as lighting, and see where your space can be illuminated with art.
In the vein of organic modern art, Hive has produced a series of light fixtures aimed at takes on basic shapes found in plants and animals. As the name indicates, many of Hive’s pieces are reminiscent of the hexagonal shape of a honeycomb. This fixture reminds us of plant roots, but is actually comprised of tiny human stick figures.
If you had any doubts about the certifiably artistic nature of this chandelier, then finding out that this item was designed specifically for the 2009 Milan Design week might just be enough to knock your socks off. The beauty of the Hope Chandelier is that it is capable of standing in the place of a traditional chandelier, and can still transcend that role through sheer force of design drama.
If streamlined is more your thing then this Agnes 20-Bulb Chandelier might just do the trick. With angles galore this brilliant fixture will bring a sense of enlightened geometry.
An iconic homage to the urban landscape these quirky sneakers fit the profile for something different, and can add a touch of whimsy to a casual space.
The effortless flow of metal woven softly as silk combined with an internal glow gives this feminine sconce a glamor all its own. In a guest bathroom or other small space this could be just the jewelry to finish off the space.
If Art Deco fell in love with Space Age Design and had a baby, this is what their light fixture offspring might look like. Not a pendant or chandelier, this fixture mounts flush against the ceiling with a spray of bulbed arms to light up the room. It gives a softer look at what can typically be a more hard edged design concept.
Complementing each other for years, blue & gold are a favorite combo for all of us at SDG.
Compatible in any design style, this pair shines in every light! Shop these favorites online.

Spring is in the air and it’s time to start thinking about your outdoor living spaces. This year’s trends lend themselves to nature, nurture and cocooning. There’s texture and color, the warmth of woods, and sleek lines of metal. Comfort and style come in one package with outdoor furniture designs found in the 2013 lines of Brown Jordan, Sutherland and DeDon to name a few.

Selecting the right furniture to sit and enjoy the sunshine is only the beginning. Exploring the colorful world of outdoor fabrics like the new lines of Robert Allen, Perennials, and Sunbrella will give you the opportunity to add some personality and vibrance to your outdoor space. Schlosser Design Group especially loves the new Schumacher fabric by Trina Turk.

Emerald green is the Pantone color of the year. So why not work the trend and add a splash of colored fabric with this tranquil hue? Or even incorporate emerald with the raging trend of dip dye for your outdoor accessories. Check out this simple image of dip dyed blocks that can be used as outdoor embellishments, and require a lot less watering than flowers.

Cristie had a great visit with Selby at The Selby Fleetwood Gallery, Santa Fe. Works included paper origami style sculptures by Kevin Box.
The entrance to the eclectic Selby Fleetwood Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Adjacent to the front door sits a bronze sculpture by artist Kevin Box. The sculpture is lovingly named “Family Tree.”
“Birthday Cake” by artist Palo Klein Uber is in acrylic and French crayon on board. Uber has recorded a detailed account of the origins of this piece. Stumbling upon an ordinary object in the wee-hours of the morning resulted in this stunningly detailed work.
On display in the Fleetwood Gallery of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Joe Ostraff presents a series of harmonic and understated pieces in oil and mixed media. This piece titled, “Logo #1” almost glows in the gallery lighting.

Cristie spent last week in Toronto with some of the most innovative and creative interior designers & design professionals from the US, Canada and beyond. IDS Toronto is Canada’s design fair, featuring world-renowned designers and architects as key-note speakers and inspiring exhibits for the design community to experience. During the week, Cristie attended the Business of Design Conference with host Kimberley Seldon, a good friend and fellow interior design professional. Kimberley is a well known interior design personality in Canada and the US. She runs her design firm, Kimberley Seldon Design Group, created Dabble Magazine, and serves as host for a variety of t.v. shows.
