Designer Allison Eden got her start over 25 years ago designing custom glass mosaics for private clients ( you can see an example of her beautiful work on the far left in the above photo). Eden then began applying her colorful, pop art aesthetic to a variety of interior finishes including textiles, wallpapers and carpets to develop one of the most fun and recognizable brands in the industry.
Porter Contemporary is currently hosting We’ll Be Happier Tomorrow, the gallery’s first solo exhibition of new paintings by Lori Larusso — which I stopped by over the weekend and found to be completely charming.
Even though I do not get that many colds, I like to have box of tissues at arm’s length or closer just about everywhere I go. Because here in The City, you never know when you are going to need a tissue: this much I have learned. In this never-ending flu season we’ve been experiencing for what seems like most of my adult life, it might be a good idea – if you are flat backing it in on the sofa and near death – to get yourself one of these remote control tissue box conveyor thingies. That way you can bring the tissue box of sweet relief to your sick and dying self by merely extending your weakened arm down to the floor. Comes in red, black or white, and sells for ¥3,690.00 (Japanese Yen) or approximately $40.71 USD from Geek Stuff 4 U Dot Com, what a bargain!
