MILANO – here I come!!! by Kelli

Tickets are bought, accommodations arranged and anticipation at it’s highest! I am headed to Milan early next week to join the annual festivities for the Salone Internazionale del Mobili (Milan International Furniture Fair)! I have attended the last two years but never has it been so exciting! Every year it gets bigger and better… this year is no exception! I am so pumped to go to Karim Rashid’s Party too (thanks David!)
As I wrote last week, La Murrina will be debuting my project “Coutures” at EUROLUCE (Pad 14, stand E29-F30 Fiera Rho, MM1 Fiera Rho) coutures1

Another great project that you shouldn’t dare miss is Mr. Hyde – designed by Isaac Pinero, Pablo Crespo Pita, and  Martin Franzen! mrhyde



PARTY TIME AT 40 WINKS by David
GLAMOROUS NIGHTS AT 40 WINKS

GLAMOROUS NIGHTS AT 40 WINKS

Last night we held the first of a series of social networking events at 40 WiNKS. Kelli and I met some great people, and everyone seemed to have a fabulous time. Big thanks to the lovely and glamorous 40 WiNKS girls (Francesca, Clementine, Florence and Alexandra), who made everyone feel so comfortable, and to Eva Menz, who has kindly loaned 40 WiNKS one of her amazing chandeliers for the next few weeks. Get in touch if you would like to come see it. It is available to purchase for £12,000.

Fabulous Tiles and More! by Kelli

I am now a fan (and I’m sure you will be too) of Belgian architect Agnes Emery and her concept interiors company Emery & Cie. Emery offers a wide range of beautiful hand crafted products from wall finishes and fabrics to breathtaking glass tiles, lighting and accessories. Every piece in her collection is unique and bursting with color and a quirky style. There is a showroom in London by appointment only but you can check out her website at www.emeryetcie.com.

Kool Kelli by David

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Kelli yet, I can say that you are in for a real treat! Kelli only joined David Carter Interior Design about a month ago, but recruiting her is without doubt the best decision of my entire professional career… some of those who know me well might even say that it’s the only good decision I have made in the last sixteen years. Not only is she super bright (she has a degree from the University of Florida in Interior Design and a Masters from the fabulous sounding Scuola Politecnica Di Design in Milan), but she also has the biggest smile in London! And as she is far too modest to mention it, I would like to tell you that she has just heard that La Murrina in Italy are going to be putting one of her lighting designs into production. It is rather appropriately called ‘Coutures’, and can be seen at the Euroluce Show in April. If you would like your design advice served sunny side up, make sure you ask for Kelli, rather than me, when you call us…
