W Hotel Atlanta - Spectacular Materials

The new W Hotel in Atlanta has an amazing look. The space is designed by Toronto based Burdifilek. They use amazing materials such as solid walnut walls and bent wood screens. The space has a feel of an underwater experience. And has a 22 ft water feature with ambient trickling of water. The overhead mobiles have kinetic movement. I love the metal art grates in the rooms.

Medical Devices turned Industrial Modern

I love these two pieces at Get Back Inc.I am pretty sure if I had that handcrank scissor lift table I could figure out something wonderful to do with it. I have retro dental cabinet, mine is celery and black, but I love this metal one.

Resin Light Boxes

Love these multicolor resin box lights that Lexington Design + Fabrication designed for the new Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood. The Boa Lights also conserve energy, lit internally by hundreds of tiny white LEDs. The restaurant looks amazing.

Today I got an email from Thrillist which showcases businesses here in San Diego. Today's showcase is Hold IT Contemporary Home a modern furniture store right here in San Diego. When I went to the site I saw this image and just couldn't resist posting it.

Vanillawood - Design Build Live

I was reading the Interior Design Blog and came across a new post about Portland's Vanillawood. I love how the name invokes a smell. I love the concept they are doing of being a one stop design studio with a focus on bringing eco design style to people. We have a store in Orange County that has some similarities to this concept called The Road Less Traveled. I can appreciate the modern style of Vanillawood. They definitely have a good eye. Vanillawood offers a design-friendly inventory of fabrics, wallpaper, lighting, mirrors, rugs, and objects for sale. While there, visitors can also check out their custom upholstery, furniture, and built-in cabinetry offerings in which the couple specializes.

Steering Wheel Table - Vintage Industrial

I came across this table at my favorite store Solo in Cedros Design District years ago. The piece was featured by Jennifer Price of Jennifer Price Studio. She has an amazing eye for Vintage Industrial. I just love this creation. If any of you have more info on pieces like this I would love to hear about it.

Retro Lighting

I am going to studying all things Industrial Modern for a while. Completely digging these lights.
This is called the Rensslear from School House Electric.
