The *new* collection of furniture and accessories.
First off, congratulations to local 18 Karat for winning an industry award for Best Decorative Accessories Company! The ARTS Awards are presented once a year in Dallas, in conjunction with the Dallas Market Center, and are North America’s industry awards for decorative accessory companies specific to design, wholesale and retail. I could not think of a company more deserving. Their signature approach, with their commitment to natural and renewable materials, the environment, providing soothing pieces to enhance our everyday living, and for their appreciation of creativity, has made them into a truly great company, now internationally recognized.
On a side note, I would love to purchase one of those low, almost flower shaped vases, (as seen on the coffee table) with the matte exterior and the surprise of shiny coloured glaze inside—my favorite is undoubtedly white with copper interior. What a great and bold signature piece!
