Cy Twombly dining room

Trad-modern at its best...

This dining room looks like it was designed around the Cy Twombly painting, and it works beautifully. The graphic patterned fabric on the dining chairs juxtaposes nicely with the handwriting in the artwork, along with the subtle patterns in the rug and wall treatment. It's light and airy yet warm and inviting.

Chairs by Yuichiro Nishizawa

So sculptural, so simple...so beautiful.

Donizetti Mirror

I love the curvaceous glossy black frame. This mirror would add a glamorous touch to a bedroom, bath, or powder room. I could also imagine one hanging over a mantle in a living or dining room.

($300 at Z Gallerie)

fab stools

A great stool, like this white ceramic one, offers additional seating as well as sculptural interest in a room.
