Here in the Standard office we've spent the last week surmising that the legalization of gay marriage in New York is going to result in some incredibly fabulous weddings! Let's celebrate by indulging in a little wedding for pretend couple, Matt and Max, in our head.

Reoriented FLOR tiles

First off, there is no way that Matt and Max are going to simply walk down the aisle. They'd far prefer to strut down a red carpet. And since Honeysuckle is Pantone's Color of the Year, they're going to skew that red carpet just a little pink by using Reoriented FLOR tiles (which also have the benefit of creating that patchwork-antique-rug look that we all love right now). Later, the couple can re-work the tiles to make an area rug for their guest room, which is where we'll all get to stay when we visit.

John Beck Paper and Steel table

Since the wedding is intimate, guests are going to sit in Philippe Starck's Hudson Rocking Chairs while the nuptials take place. Maybe Matt and Max will put these on the porch of their home upstate after the wedding is over. The chairs are made to last for at least 150 years, so if the guys decide to start a family, these automatic heirlooms are ready to go.

Dinner will be served at a Limited Edition table by John Beck Paper and Steel (this one is sold but I'm sure Matt and Max can commission John to make something similar) and a grouping of Justin Parker's Water Drop Jugs from Esque Studio will create a sophisticated and ethereal centerpiece. Oh, look what Matt and Max did! They gave each guest one of the jugs to take home as a gift—I don't know why I expected anything less. Man, I love those guys.

Mr. and Mr. Glasses

And, of course, you know someone is going to buy them these Mr. and Mr. glasses from Bottlehood. How freaking cute is that?
