Dept. of Pretty Things. We have clients on 12th Street who have been transforming their apartment for the first time in 25 years - moving from French Country to a more spartan, Italian modern style. It is going very well and a few of the details are particularly exciting: 1. New Fireplace Mantle and Hearth ($2400)- This regular old brick fireplace was just covered with limestone (Bataige Blue) by Bella Tile. They took care of the whole thing and have done a great job.
2. New Lamps ($300 ea)- There are two of these on either side of the fireplace. Made by Alex Marshall and sold at Desiron, we hear that Desiron is closing these out. No matter, go the the source: www.alexmarshallstudios.com, for other stores.
3. New Iron Nesting Tables ($675) - These simple metal tables come in different finishes (ours are brown with a rusted finish) and are the sort of thing that Desiron does best. (Thanks, S & T!) MGR
