Lladro’ s new Treo Lamp created a lot of interest at the recent New York’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair. It was selected by the Wall Street Journal as one of three design highlights of the show.


Lladro Treo Lamp – Treo is a lamp you might spend more time looking at than using to look at other things. Produced by Lladró, the 59-year-old porcelain company based in Valencia, Spain, the contemporary design dangles its arcane shade like an object of contemplation: the world on a string, a hypnotist’s pocket watch. The finely incised, figured shade produces a lovely light and shadow play, because of the degrees of depth of the porcelain. – click to read Wall Street Journal feature

Hawley table by Egg Collective – When you’re trying to land a full martini on a side table during a cocktail party conversation—you’re facing the other way, of course, making your most brilliant point—height can be critical. Consider the Hawley table a small machine for living. Created by Egg Collective, a Brooklyn trio of women designers, the brass top operates on a threaded screw-stem to the marble base, which allows you to adjust the table’s height, from 18 to 22 inches. Your command of setting a drink down without watching yourself will appear telegenic


Casey Lurie’s Primo shelving system – Shelving can be the most mundane thing you own, or it can be the beautiful bones of a room—as pleasing to see as anything it displays. Casey Lurie’s Primo system would be the latter. Composed of waxed alder wood poles and planks, and brass supports that also function as subtle accents, the units assemble without hardware. They simply interlock. Mr. Lurie, a Chicago-based designer, worked in Japan and became interested in traditional joinery techniques. Primo is available in other woods, and with stainless steel supports.
