As mentioned here, SA Baxter was selected by Garcia / Maldonado, Inc. to be part of their design for the Kips Bay Show House.  After a gala opening event this past Monday, the Show House is now open to the public.  We’ll show you a bit more next week, including shots of our installed hardware in the luxurious urban lounge.

OBSESSED

Date night in the groovy hookup lounge by Louis Jon Garcia-Maldonado, with its sueded leather walls, mirrored bar shelves, gray moire curtains, mammoth daybed and crackling gel fireplace, is threatened by two female archetypes: a flame-haired warrior, a wall-size female nude painted by Eric Pedersen and a kittenish Kate Moss in a Russell Young photograph, clad in black undies and black thigh-high stockings, clutching a teddy bear.”

We all know and love the warmth of patina in the world of door hardware and trim – That mellow aging of brass and bronze which adds so much character to a space.  Another way to bring this lustrous glow into a room is to accessorize with optics.  Vintage Microscopes, Binoculars, Telescopes, Opera Glasses, and their variants make for incredible accent pieces.  Below is a sampling of some of our favorites we have stumbled across.

Spring has finally arrived in the Northeast…we’re delighted to at last feel some warmth and take in the colors!  Hence a little inspiration for this group shot of SA Baxter knobs, levers, hinges, and pulls finished in satin burnished nickel.
