Get in the MOOD

Its elegance, simplicity and polished gold dome certainly will capture your attention along with a luminous reflection. MOOD by Christofle is a stunning, yet enigmatic object that easily commands the center of any shelf, counter or table.

What’s in MOOD? It is an elliptical masterpiece that secretly houses a collection of gold flatware for six (dinner fork,dinner knife, tablespoon and teaspoon). Although its sophisticated style leans toward a more formal application, it can be used for more casual affairs.

France-based Christofle manufacturers home accessories, tableware, silverware, gifts, baby items and more. Since 1830, the company has manufactured the designs of numerous artists under its namesake. Their fine products are designed in traditional to contemporary styles.

As with many of their other  products, the MOOD is quite the contemporary silverware setting for table tastemaking. This flatware statement object is available in silver and rose gold globally at fine boutiques and retail establishments starting around $1,000.00

Trending Now: Graffiti’s New Stage is in Your Bathroom

Graffiti has come a long way from its rebellious moniker peppering gritty, urban landscapes of trains and buildings. It has transcended its shady past to become the feature design element of a limited series collection by Aquabrass. The Graffiti tub is one of three free-standing, hand-painted  products under the KANVAS ™  collection. The tubs are fabricated in North America from stone resin and are all hand signed by the artist. The Pax design focuses on a zen-like ambiance. The Mosiak tub is a nod to modern art with a classic appeal.  This trio of tubs is just the beginning of a movement in home interiors that reflects all aspects of contemporary design with personalization.

Your new Graffiti tub can be accented with a coordinating custom, mosiac tile featuring graffiti art. An Italian manufacturer combines technology with art allowing clients to customize tile with a hi-res digital file as the source image. The surface is a patented polymer that is both light-weight and flexible and gives depth and dimension to each tile. You can print a variety of geometric shapes and wrap round surfaces with the tile.  The infinite color allows for processing any image that can scale both small and large.

This decor movement marks an exciting time to showcase your individuality and experiment with design options that can be placed almost everywhere in your space. Contact me for a consultation on bringing your space to life.
