PHOTOGRAPHS BY GREG LOTUS
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the lens of famed fashion photographer Greg Lotus is the window to beauty. Featuring the stunning model Lily Cole, this photograph (ABOVE), entitled "Red, White and Blue," first appeared on the cover of the Sunday Telegraph, and is now available for purchase directly from Lotus’ studio.
CHANDELIERS BY PLANET LIGHTING
Lladró, traditionally known for figurines, has completely blown us away with the Niagara Chandelier (PICTURED RIGHT), a spectacular vision of 300 floating porcelain fairies created by London designer Bodo Sperlein. Available in Miami at Planet Lighting, it’s also sold in two smaller yet equally magical versions featuring 100 or 40 fairies. 5120 Biscayne Blvd., Miami
CANDLESTICKS BY GRETEL
Stephen Johnson’s whimsical castmetal Wonderland candlesticks for Artecnica are minisculptures comprised of vintage-inspired ceramic figurines. Miami-based Gretel offers three limited editions of eight, so be sure to snag one before reality sets in.
ARTSY CHAIRS BY NENDO
Designer Nendo used an electrical cord as visual reference to create one of the thinnest chairs on the market today. Made from the hard maple of regenerated forests, the Cord Chair (available at Luminaire) not only fits into the smallest of spaces, but satisfies your inner green conscience, too. 3901 NE Second Ave., Miami; 2331 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables
