Yesterday morning, Lisa and I went over to Room & Board at the historic Helms Bakery district in Culver City. They're such a neat -- and growing! -- company. They partner with small, family-run American businesses and put the emphasis on quality and value. Plus, they're just nice people. Stephanie Martin of Blink LA, and Aurora Aramburu and Heather Neubauer of Room & Board, walked us through some of the new products they're featuring, so I took a few snaps along the way.
|We loved the new hand-spun aluminum lamps from Brooklyn-based designer Babette Holland. They're made one at a time and finished in the most beautifully soft metallic shades. From left to right: Ruby, Skyscraper, Orb (my fav), Flamingo, and Twister|
|Heather shows us some of their new pillow fabrics from manufacturers like Galbraith & Paul and Eastern Accents.|
|Hot this season: all the warm tones your mind naturally goes to at this time of year. |
Even hotter this season: powdery shades of charcoal and plum.
|Don't ever get between Lisa and a fabric sample. :)|
