This Lamp Hits The Spot.

Cinema Light
30.25" x 30.25" x 62.25"

Form follows function in this entirely practical light that condenses and magnifies a fierce beam towards the stage. Or in our case, more probably a painting or an easy club fauteuil. Handcrafted in vintage airplane aluminum and polished by hand, he light is easy to adjust and point.  The spot is attached to a folding aluminum tripod. It’s all in the detail...

AERO Essentials: Number 2 of 5

AERO Leather Utility Bag
available in various colors
24"l x 10"w x 14"h

An AERO exclusive, this carry all bag definitely deserves a spot on the Essential List!  The bag is made from high quality vegetal-dyed Italian leather with a thick color contrasting cotton strap.  This was my first purchase from Aero when I started and I take it with me everywhere.  Whether it be perusing through the Chelsea flea markets to hold found treasures or to quickly throw in a few items and over your shoulder for an impromptu Sunday beach trip this bag is the perfect companion.  Not bulky like other bags of its size the AERO Utility Bag can be easily folded down for storage when not in use...but trust me that will rarely happen!

On a basic tool like a bottle opener, it is great to see that style can have a home!  Each piece is handcrafted of iron for strength, the sculptural mermaid adds a whimsical touch to your home or cabana bar.

Between a Rock and a Caffeinated Place

Like fingerprints, no two mugs are alike thanks to the handle of this mug being made of natural stone. This solid mug brings into any modern home a piece of the outside world with a stone handle pairing perfectly with the highest quality porcelain.

Not An Idea To Table

Demilune Console
42.5" x 22 x 32.5"

The vintage white finish of this table makes it perfect for a beach cottage or paint it Charleston green for a more structured look.  I love the geometric shapes the exposed stretcher base creates.  A pair back to back could be an interesting solution for an entry hall overflowing with potted giant elephant ears.

Take Me Home Tonight

Woven Alpaca Duffel Bag
16"h x 16"w x 6"d

I am sort of obsessed with this bag right now!  It makes me want to ransack my beach drawer and take the Long Island Railroad all the way to the end, destination Montauk.  The bag is natural and brown woven alpaca with leather accents and an old fashioned button closure.  Originally from Argentina it has made the voyage to NYC.  Who is ready to take it on their next trip?
