Asiatica by way of Kansas

Based in Kansas City, with trunk shows traveling around the country, Asiatica arrived in Brooklyn today via a mailed holiday greeting, aka, very pretty catalog. Some of my favorites:

Aoki Ryota silver lined porcelain bowl
Five Japanese papier-mache puppies
Reiko Ishiyama oxydized silver bracelet

Supermodel Sofa

Tell me about yourself. Canapé a la Reine by Phillipe Coudray.
Tell me about your look. I can never run away from my Louis XV roots, but I'm all about fashion, you know? I'm always thinking of new and bold combinations to create something fresh and exciting.
What are you wearing today? I wanted to out-Paul-Smith Paul Smith. This is the Jura Stripe Velvet from Watts of Westminster. Isn't it fabulous?
Quite stunning. How do you deal with all the attention? How do I deal with it? What's to deal with? I love attention!
What do you like to do when you're not working? I love to curl up with a nice book - in some cold and drafty corner of the family castle. Right now I'm reading The Social Contract by Rousseau.

Thank you, Bloesem!

Imagine our shock when we found out that Bloesem, one of our favorite blogs, had included us in their "recently discovered" list. Bloesem is an unfailing source of the most wonderful works of art, pieces of craft, home furnishings, and other beautiful items.

Thank you so much, Irene! We're tickled! D did a couple of cartwheels to the Culture Club's I'll Tumble 4 Ya. I ate a coconut cupcake to celebrate (okay, okay, I nimbled on two more when I got home) and listened to the original cast recording of Pippin. Yay!
