Preview shots of Todd Romano's Los Angeles showroom

First, it has been far too long since we posted anything, even for a poster as infrequent as us. Sorry for that. On the plus side we have been busy and are planning more Trade Tips videos.

One thing keeping us busy was a trip to visit Todd Romano's new showroom in Los Angeles, which is carrying a few of our pieces. Todd has done a magnificent job with his new space, which includes 2 buildings and an outdoor courtyard and walkway! He has finished the walls of each of the rooms in a different color high-gloss lacquer style finish and even built out a wall for a faux fireplace which he covered in antiqued mirror (on which, I am proud to say, hangs our Faceted Serge Roche style mirror). Todd has brought the same attention to detail and refinement to his new showroom as he does to his inventory selections and decorating jobs.

Todd is in the process of re-doing his website, which will include the new showroom. But until it is ready, here are some snap-shots I took. Enjoy!

  3. Thank you Karena - I will be sure to check out the Metis Linens.

    Thank you Down East Dilettante - glad to know another with the chair bug! And thank you for your comments. Not sure if you saw this NYTimes article on the Kips Bay Showhouse from 10/13, perhaps this link will work:

    But I think it does a good job of indirectly highlights some of the changes we're seeing in the decorating trade. Old school vs. new school decorators, etc. It definitely got my writing juices flowing again - if I can find a way to write about it without offending too many clients I will!

    Best wishes!
