Windows on the World: Lillian August

the view from west 20th street: why are my pics always slanted?
It's September in New York and global eclectic is on. The signs are all around us including this fabulous window at Lillian August's showroom in the Flatiron District. This staging stopped me in my tracks: it has glamour, exoticism, urban sophistication, rustic texture and many pops of bright color. Inviting, not overwhelming. 

A fabulous vignette. Of course, it's only in keeping with the general quality of their window displays...

 This was their window in October 2011: a similar panorama of sumptuous inspiration. The deep dyed rugs, the carved mirror, the gleaming chandeliers, the ticking stripe chair, the bamileke stool and that repurposed coffee table. Chic, elegant, comfortable, inviting and cozy.

makes you want to run home and start pulling things out to try

I do enjoy their work...

a hot pink couch with english roll arms... pretty much perfection
