Bocci 28 Series

June 15, 2011

We love the Bocci 28 Series chandelier!  After highlighting the custom color version at Rossana Orlandi in Milan this past April …

…Bocci took their show to the streets of New York where they rigged a display other versions of 28 during ICFF in May…

We love the handmade qualities, the possibility to customize size, color, and above all … the singular style of the new 28 Series!

A Tale of Two Sofas

March 19, 2011

There was once a woman who wanted a very large and comfortable sectional for the corner of a TV room.  The room was not at the top of a tower but it might as well have been…..it was a steep stairway with a sharp right turn at the landing.  What would fill the requirements and still be able to fit through the door?

Happily the brilliant designer, Philippe Starck, had designed a system of upholstered elements with removable covers AND the ability to be dismantled into all of its component parts.  Voila!   Problem solved by the CassinaMister” sectional.

Not long after, the same woman needed a new sofa in her lovely but inaccessible New York City apartment.  The first sleeper sofa that had come to live at the apartment was taken apart, piece by tiny piece, taken up the very tiny elevator and reassembled.  Oy Vey….that was a situation!  Fortunately, “Mister” to the rescue once again.  The back, arms, legs etc, etc came up the tiny elevator, through the tiny foyer and into the living area where they went back together in a flash.

Everyone has lived happily ever since and the story definitely has a moral.  If you want a hassle-free experience with an “iffy” space, go straight to SR Hughes and select a “Mister” sectional for yourself.  Order by September 23rd, 2011 and take advantage of the Cassina Fall Sale!
