No. 019 *CLASSICAL RE-VAMP- Provocative Furniture by Jimmie Martin

Have you seen these pieces by Jimmie Martin? They are definitely the epitome of what I love so much about borderline design. Ugly? Lovely? All I know is I can’t stop looking at them and I bet you’re going to feel the same. I am a sucker for metallics, text, and re-vamped classical design- Jimmie Martin { take a look at the website } has a whole slew of fantastic and provocative one-off pieces they describe as “combining the decadent and quirky with the nostalgic and urban.” A creative re-vamp of classic pieces in metallic and loud text (quoting phrases like 'IMPERFECT', recepies, poems...) elaborate flowers, bold and fun colors. If you think that they are too over the top to picture in a space just ask the famous interior designer {Kelly Hoppen} who used the lounge chairs pictured here in her design of {Rhodes W1} in London. (I love Kelly Hoppen.)

Makes me want take a trip to the local thrift store...

I absolutely adore JM's work -- so edgy and of-the-moment. Kara Mann does amazing things with his pieces.
Cheers, Alcira

Back again am I,

In other fodder, I've awarded you a Stylish Blogger Award.

It's a bit like a bloggy chain-letter, I've found, so don't feel compelled to play along. I'm happy just to have you up at Nero.

Oh Yes!! Love these! They'd be cool in a small restaurant.

I know, I'm so happy to have another kitty in our lives! Did I mention I was going to name the first black cat that I had Olive?

I hope all is well! Trying to coordinate with the other girls to set up a blogger get together! I'll keep you posted!!
