In celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, Royal Mail Stamp Rugs produced two limited edition rugs replicating Royal Mail’s commemorative stamp series ~ the Diamond Jubilee Wilding (left) and the Diamond Jubilee Machin (right)…featuring scalloped edges which mimic the perforations on Royal Mail Postage Stamps, each rug is individually hand carved to create a stunning 3D effect…I hear the Queen herself owns one of these beauties! Enjoy!

Where do I begin? The Architectural Digest Home Design Show was all I imagined it would be and so much more…priceless conversations with leaders in the industry such as Margaret Russell, Darryl Carter, Vicente Wolf and Tucker Robbins left me breathless…thoughtful designer seminars about sustainability, art, architecture, photography and travel inspired me to look deeper and explore these subjects from a new perspective…breathtaking original art, design, furniture, objects and lighting from the MADE exhibitors, a gallery featuring more than 160 participants, touched my heart…artful installations by larger companies such as Ligne Roset and BDDW illuminated a variety of new forms, finishes and textiles…

This week, I plan to highlight my favorites from the show…from famed architect Robert A.M. Stern’s new collection of furniture to the organic beauty of handwoven rugs by Orley Shabahang, I hope this post offers you a closer look at some of the beauty I experienced last week…
