On the Road: ABC Home in NYC

November 7th, 2013

This week I had a little extra time to kill before the Adorne events started and the weather was great in NYC so I weaved my way to ABC Home to do some power shopping for a bunch of projects. I didn’t do so fabulously with the things I was actually looking for, but I did find some new things I did fall in love with!

1. I can spot a turquoise piece of glass a mile away, I may even have super special radar for it! I was honing in on the cluster of Cisco’s jug pendant lights (which I happen to have 3 of in my own dining room) and got totally distracted by the new table lamps I hadn’t known they had in their collection! The scale, the proportion, the color; Oh My! Must have 2!

I’ve used them numerous times as the colors are great and some of her patterns are quite interesting. The way she plays with scale in her patterns I like allot. Being able to visit ABC Home and touch and feel the pieces again was pretty great. I only wish someone here sold them! (HINT HINT).

Made but a Brooklyn artist Jim Denney; each piece obviously is one of a kind. Wish I had a job that fit his work right now, I totally want to take it home to hold onto for when I ‘needed it’ for a project. Don’t think the husband would enjoy an extra table kicking around though!

In real life they are even better, they glow and the warm coppery color inside is just gorgeous. I think you can’t have just one though, you may need 7, or 9 … or heck even 13!
