The very best of luxury products for both residential and commercial design can be found at the ICFF, International Contemporary Furniture Fair, which was just held in New York City in May. As a luxury interior designer, I make it a point to attend multiple design associated shows annually to better serve my clientele.

Next up is the most luxurious steam units that a designer can specify for a project, both residential and commercial. I can speak to this personally as I have had one in my own home maser bath and have installed them in multiple residential projects. Relaxation, well being and your health may be considered luxuries, but truly are essentials! A steam unit offers multiple benefits to improve your overall health, both mental and physical and you can learn about the amazing benefits of being a Mr. Steam owner and user here, by the experts at Mr. Steam.
What are some of the other features of these awesome steam units? Aroma therapy, Music Therapy, and Chroma (light) Therapy!
Speaking of luxury, how about a wonderful towel warmer? These too, I can speak too and if you want to step out of your shower and envelope yourself in a warmed cotton bath sheet, then I highly recommend having one installed in your bath. Your bath and master suite is your sanctuary and you should look forward to spending time there. The Mr. Steam website is profusely informative and offers all the information you will need (and then some!) to make an educated decision on which is the precise unit for your needs, OR you can call me to design your new luxury bath!
It’s not your grandma’s countertops! Wilsonart is on the cutting edge of technology for kitchen and bath and actually everywhere else in your home or office. Wilsonart surfaces can be found in retail environments as well as on a feature wall in your favorite restaurant. It’s truly a remarkable product as it has such a wide range of applications.
In addition to the well known and used laminates, Wilsonart has added eight new designs to it’s quartz collection. I c-a-n-n-o-t wait to see the Empire State–Reminiscent of sealed concrete, Empire State is a fine-scale tone-on- tone grey quartz countertop with white and charcoal features throughout. Manhattan- This design is light grey resembling a fine-scale concrete with white and charcoal features, perfect for the modern environment.
The theme Borders, boundaries and mashup inspired students at San Diego State University to design uncommon chairs for the 13th Annual Wilsonart Challenges Student Chair Design Competition. In the photo I snapped, above, this is Lisa a student and participant in the competition and designed and fabricated her chair by herself. This program teaches student not only about design but how to construct their furniture.
