An Obsession with Accumulation

 

Bowles

 

Looking for a dash of glam to spice up your abode?

Redecorating and on the prowl for 20th century delicacies?

Call Bonhams now for their sale catalog, ADVENTURES IN STYLE, Hamish Bowles and Gordon Watson, Tuesday, November 13 in New York.

An Ingo Maurer chandelier, etchings by Etienne Drian, velvet wingbacks by Jean-Charles Moreux, steel and rock crystal andirons by Paul Belvoir, Flatware by Puiforcat, watercolors by Joe Eula, a pair of wall appliques by Poillerat or Tom Dixon's rice paper over metal star fixtures.    and and and....

Hamish is a collector; we all are to SOME extent, but Hamish runs away with the prize, he's been doing it as he says, "from infancy."

In the pared down, constantly dieting world that we live in I find it totally refreshing to know someone (else!) who makes no apologies for loving beautiful objects, snatching them up, loving them for years then admitting at some point that you have, "...an obsession with accumulation" and decide to do the "greenest" thing any OCD Collector can do....recycle!

Yes, these items will be "...off to other lives and adventures," and with some

Good fortune perhaps one will land my way.

C'EST INSPIRÊ
Design

The Charlotte Moss collection of fabrics and trims for Fabricut includes over 100 new items, including prints, wovens, and trimmings.  “Charlotte Moss is highly regarded in the industry as a powerful marketer and informed designer,” says David Finer, CEO of Fabricut.  Charlotte’s inspiration for the collection is drawn from antiques and vintage documents from her personal collection.  Other inspirations include architectural themes and, of course, her garden. Collaborating with the designers at Fabricut, direction and inspiration for the collection was found within her immense anthology of textile documents, items acquired during her travels and images she's captured behind her camera. Adding to her vision and attention to detail for this collection, each pattern name has its own story. Fabrics are named in honor of her muses – women travelers and explorers who pushed boundaries in many ways. Charlotte explains, "you knew what these women stood for, they had a mission, and as a result, left us legacies that inspire. They are like guiding lights."

Charlotte's second collection of fabrics and trims debuting in the 2015 features luscious wovens, fresh prints and stunning trimmings in three color stories - Canvas, Deep Coral and Watercolor.

“Bits of inspiration find you along your path or you find them. However the story goes, there was an attraction, an emotional reaction that caused the two of you to go home together. A tile, a turtle shell, a vintage scarf; a few of the things that inspired this collection...” -Charlotte Moss
