A SECOND LOOK

Having spent two full days scouring the endless isles at The New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) you would need to hit me with a proverbial bus to get me to stop and look at anything less than spectacular during my last hours at the fair. It wasn't until my weary eyes happened upon a wall of glowing Lucite antlers--so sculptural and luminous that I just had to stop. The furniture and accessory line of Grace and Blake brilliantly combines design partners Gillian Abercrombie and Jamie Dietrich's modern aesthetic with vintage textiles, woods and metals. Founded in 2010, the eclectic line features cast resin deer antlers mounted on reclaimed wood, fluffy feather pendant lighting and tufted Lucite ottomans upholstered with truck tarps from Brazil. I'm smitten with the hip, diverse line--the perfect find at the end of the fair!

Those antlers are showstoppets! My husband would have me comitted if i came home with them though. He's a tad traditional and says I've taken transitional "too far"....so funny!

Love the antlers - I've been wanting something similar to hang in our family room. And, the lab pillows are great!

Lucite antlers? Definitely worth a second look! And that doggie coffee table. Love it! Thanks for sharing your gift show favorites - I'm hoping one of these days I can get there in person, but in the time being love to see it through the sharp eyes of others! Happy weekend!

It sure can be exhausting (at least the LA one is)...it's so nice when something fun and unusual pops up!
