I ventured to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show
in New York City for the first time this year and it totally lived up to its hype. I couldn’t seem to tear myself out of the MADE
section, which featured a selection of independent artists and designers that were chosen to exhibit and showcase their latest wares. Take a look at some of my favorites.
expanded their Geometry is God collection to now include lighting and it’s pretty magnificent. This is the Duat Table Lamp
made out of Satin raw steel, just one of their new pieces that we highlighted in yesterday’s post
is a New York-based brand founded by Brit Kleinman that takes a whole new approach when it comes to leather. AVO’s hand painted goods include leather rugs and pillows with striking graphic patterns.
A sampling of the newest pillows.
AVO collaborated with Seattle-based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio
to create the Ovis chair
, which reimagines a classic sling chair using a hand painted leather seat strapped to a metal and whitened maple frame.
We’ve featured DAMM’s
lighting before and they exhibited some new floor lamps that have three-dimensional looking shades that hang over the bent stem base.
They also had their Artemis
arrow fixtures hanging in clusters.
displayed the Lina 20-Light
, which is a modular pendant that can grow or contract to work in any space.
Brooklyn-based Dusen Dusen recently ventured

Los Angeles-based Wolfum
launched a new collection of gorgeous, pattern driven wallpaper.
showcased their line of Shape Mirrors
which are made of layers of glass mirror in varying tints that are joined together to form optical illusions.
We first fell for Elyse Graham’s Geodes
back in 2012
and they still captivate me. Their layers of colorful latex paint are completely mesmerizing making me want to sit down and watch the extensive process in which each one is made. This one is sitting on top of her new Drip mirrors.
Graham also displayed a collection of colorful, ballooning vases and her XO Kiss Necklaces
(which I’m dying for!).
Los Angeles-based artist Lewis Mauk
(Elyse Graham’s equally talented husband!) showed his line of linear paintings
, along with a lamp collaboration
with Graham that was inspired by their honeymoon to Thailand.
I’ve been a huge admirer of Nashville-based artist Drew Tyndell’s

More Drew Tyndell…
Michigan-based Kaiser Suidan’s cube wall sculptures
offer an endless array of arrangement possibilities and each individual cube stands on its own or in masterful
