NY Gift Show
January 31, 2012
OUCH, my legs hurt after two days of shopping Madison and 5th Avenues and then a full day of the New York Gift Show… but I am so excited about the things were bringing in for spring at Surroundings. Big, Bold and Neutral with a shot of color that is our mantra for spring. Lime green, lavender and sky blue in small doses mix with neutrals and create a restful and calming environment, and small commitments to color allow for a change whenever the mood strikes. We ordered beautiful pillows from Ryan Studio in ikat patterns, chevron patterns, embroidered dots and clean stripes.
Oversized ceramic urns, jugs and vases in rich whites and creams will be arriving soon too. I hope they don’t sell too fast because I’m looking forward to filling them with flowering branches and filling the center of a dining room. The pieces will make the perfect centerpiece and create impact.
Asian influenced accent pieces are being made for us right now. We ordered stackable side tables in warm whites, neutrals and lacquered finishes. They are cubes that look good as side tables, bookcases, coffee tables and etageres. Narrow cupboards in the same finishes were too stylish to now pick up. They will look good in foyers, halls, behind sofas and everywhere they fit!
