January and February are notoriously thin months in terms of magazines, and this month Elle Decor is no exception…kind of underwhelming. Even the What's Hot! page seems, well, lukewarm. The hand made Jenny Chandelier from Oly ($1850) is interesting, although not quite our cup of tea. We like Carl Martinez' rock crystal hardware, although at $325-$745, we are not sure what dresser is willing to play second fiddle to its drawer pulls.
The Python plates from Kiln Design Studio are funny but for some reason we are a little grossed out by them and not sure if we'd be able to eat anything off of the python design without being freaked out. We always liked the Nambe brushed metal bowls and the new glass bedside decanter ($75) is quite lovely.
You can go on line to see the rest of what the magazine considers hot! here.
