Inspirations and just A Bit of Bucks County…online
Perfect for a cold January day, a glimpse of some of the Inspiring Designs, Displays and Exhibits to share from the New York Gift Fair 2013, held at the Jacob K. Javits Center on the West side of Manhattan.
This year seemed a bit less in size and scope than other years, there is always too much to get to. There were great displays of Gifts and Home Interiors, color, textures, design, old and new, traditional and modern, and are always an inspiration. Color Impressions this year of subtle, traditional Ivories, Oyster , Linen and spring greens, bright and in contrast, of Sage, Grass and Moss, were eye catching.
Fair- fresh greens, spring colors, beautiful designs and presentations. Loved the Table Place Settings, Gift Wrap and Favor Displays, naturally beautiful Quartz Candle Holders of orange, agate green and rose, and fresh spring flowers about of all kinds.
This was an interesting Oyster and shells fossil formation – 12 million years old- decorated on 17th century Italian altar stand. From: Interi Designs
Topiaries tabletop display. Is beautiful to see the greens of spring, on a January day in New York.
All Natural, Beautiful Olive Oil “Marseille Soaps” – Savon de Marseille on display. These Soaps are made in a savonnerie – soap factory, near Marseille, France, in the traditional manner, and are amazing.
The representatives describe the process of mixing Pure olive and vegetable oil with alkaline ash from sea plants and Mediterranean seawater, which then must be heated for ten days before being cut into cubes and stamped, and then set out to dry in the sun and wind. French law declares that only soaps made according to these specific traditional methods may bear the mark you see , of “Savon de Marseille”.
– the soap is gentle and moisturizing, in traditional blocks or slices, and are usually at first still moist, curing over time. They are long lasting, and can be used to wash anything. A beautiful Display. They look so naturally elegant in any Bath or Powder room. Marseille Soap – a favorite- the color is beautiful.
Refreshing kitchen displays from Stonewall Kitchens of York, Maine. They even offer Cooking Classes.
