My “Phillips Collection” Obsession
I become obsessed when good people meet great design and this is exactly the cast at The Phillips Collection. Jason Phillips, son of owners Mark and Julie, has a phenomenal brain for merging art with functional home decor and while “snooping” around (since that’s what we do best) I found his blog 🙂 I won’t give away the secrets of what is to come just yet (as everyone loooves to make a knock off these days) but here is a look at their newest designs for Fall 2010:
Holey Console Table is a study on matte vs glossy finishes. The form resembles a liquid metal, and the center compartment allows for safekeeping of your most precious items.
Rock’n Chair is a pure white form, amorphic and dynamic, balanced and whimsical.
Sweep Low Table takes generous curves and a sleek profile to make a sophisticated statement indoors and out. It’s sister piece, the Swept Side Table (below), is finished in pure white and looks great repeated or standalone next to a lush sectional.
And just to throw in some more love… Jason is one of the 16 winners honored with the Pinnacle Design Achievement Awards by the American Society of Furniture Designers. Presented during the HPFM, Jason won for the best in Accessories for 2010 with his Burled Bowls…
