Tag Archives: design influencers

When we gather our community together for the varied furniture markets, we look forward to engaging with the design influencers who congregate there. When we write posts that highlight any of them, we file it under this tag. Posts highlighting these visionaries include a look at Palm Beach Chic through the lens of David Ecton and Lance Jackson of Parker Kennedy Living; Tobi Fairley’s Designer MBA program; Amy Flurry’s “Pitch your Projects: Mastering the Art of Getting Published” when the book debuted; and several reviews of Adam Japko’s Design Bloggers Conference. We also use this tag when we feature the designers with whom we collaborate. The list, which is distinguished, includes Bunny Williams, Marjorie Skouras, Barry Goralnick, Phyllis Morris, Aviva Stanoff, Denise McGaha, Hiroshi Koshitaka, Lillian August and Jamie Beckwith. These design influencers bring their own personal tastes to bear on their designs, which we produce to bring our customers a varied point of view.

With the end of the Olympic Games this past Sunday, we’d like to salute all of the athletes who put their hearts on the line and bodies through the tumult of competing. We’re quite proud of team America, whose members racked up the most medals at 113 and the most gold medals at 39! With our new introductions this summer, we had our own moment of going for the gold as we added different hues of the gleaming color to our product lineup. Here are a few of our favorites, the first three introductions in our Sasha Bikoff Collection.

Going for the Gold with New Introductions

The Sasha Bikoff Liquid Gold Console by Currey & Company fits perfectly in our going for the gold category.

The Liquid Gold Console Table lives up to its name, as the brass from which the console table is made, in a luminous gold finish, seems to be liquifying as it drips from the matte top. Living up to her reputation of designing products that add bling to a space, this new addition to Sasha’s collection will do just that.

Currey & Company’s Bee My Honey Accent Table.

The Bee My Honey Side Table is guaranteed to be a playful element in an interior. Made of brass in a polished brass finish, the gold accent table is topped with a black disc of marble. It is handmade using a technique called metal piercing, a process during which composite is poured into the cavity of a mold and intricately pierced using a nail-shaped piece of metal. The textural stippling creates the feeling of a hive around which cast bees have been welded. We also offer this design in a chandelier, which is shown below.

One of our most popular collection of products for quite some time is the Briallen Demi-Lune. While the black version has great depth thanks to its caviar black finish, and the gray version is cool and chic in its winter gray stain, the new introduction is crisply sophisticated in a cerused white oak.

The same impressively sized flower pull that has drawn applause on the previous versions is in gold on this new white version of the Briallen Demi-Lune, which makes it a shoe-in for this going for the gold piece. The floral motif also illustrates the skill of our artisans who hand-cast the handle in brass. We also offer the Briallen as nightstands and decorative boxes.

The Pepys Brass Pendant by Currey & Company fits perfectly in our going for the gold category.

Taking a traditional shape and making it modern was Tom Caldwell’s point of view when he was designing the Pepys Brass Pendant. Made of metal in a brushed brass finish, the cone-shaped gold pendant has a sophisticated mix of geometric shapes that bring it its contemporary personality, particularly the pointy finial that fastens the opaque glass diffuser to the fixture. We also offer the Pepys in a brushed nickel finish.

Currey & Company’s Philipa Chandelier

The Philipa Chandelier is designed in as classical a shape as arm chandeliers come but the angular lines and pared-down style of this gold chandelier place it well into the contemporary category. Made of wrought iron in antique brass finish, the tubular arms hold clean-lined bobeches that lift frosted glass canisters, which soften the glow of the light.

The Margam Mirror by Currey & Company fits perfectly in our going for the gold category.

The surface of the Margam Mirror has been stamped with a basket-weave pattern to give it depth. The gold mirror is made of wood over which the brass frame and mirror have been fastened. The antique brass finish is a design move of note, as the antiquing darkens the crevices of the weave pattern to provide the Margam with even more texture. This decorative mirror is going for the gold perfection!

Currey & Company’s Floris Flush Mount

Made of wrought iron in a new gold leaf finish, the Floris Flush Mount has a fluted profile and a milky glass diffuser fastened by a pert finial. Our design team takes great pride in bringing style to flush mounts, a point of view we’ve developed over decades of creating ceiling lights, and this gold flush mount is our latest iteration.

Currey & Company’s Vision Floor Lamp

Quintessentially traditional in its design, the Vision Floor Lamp is a gooseneck floor lamp with an adjustable stem. Made of brass in a vintage brass finish, the thin body of the gold floor lamp balances on a black granite base. The burnished feel the finish brings this lamp makes this a warm accent in any interior and perfect for our going for the gold post.

Speaking of luminous: US gymnast Suni Lee was electrifying when she won her gold medal. Her tweet after her win was very touching. She wrote, “Happy Birthday, dad! Thank you for always being my number 1 supporter & my best friend. I love you so much; you are the reason I do it all.” Isn’t it wonderful to see a young person being so humble after such a big success? We send our best wishes to all of the athletes who have sacrificed so much to represent America in the Games.
