Jonathan Adler. Like the energizer bunny, still going, but he manages to remain fresh. We loved his Bond Collection Dining Table (shown above), of pieced burled wood on a stainless steel base.
We also liked the occasional table collection at Jonathan Adler, clad in “Hermes orange” leather.
The minimalist Hans Hourglass Tables, above, at Jonathan Adler, in Polished Brass or Blackened Brass is fresh.
Super cool woven neoprene baskets by NEO. Yes, hand woven in Rome, IT, and designed by NEO creator, Rosanna Contadini, this line of fab baskets is knitted, crocheted, woven and twisted into these usable objects. We didn't buy the line, but you can buy it online from the Guggenheim Museum web store, www.guggenheimstore.com

OLY's Parker Cabinet with an inlay of silver resin framed in stained wood. You can choose your wood and leg finish.
Canadian Martha Sturdy was at the show with her amazing line of resin and metal objects, vases, bowls, table lamps and furniture. Sturdy, who can make common resin look as desirable as marble, is known for her oversize statements in resin and metals. Her website describes the work as shapes that are "dramatic yet minimal, sexy yet strong". I'd say that's right on the money.
Our friend and glass artist, Caleb Siemon, has changed the name of his company to Sieman & Salazar, to better reflect the partnership he has with longtime associate and wife, Carman Salazar, who was with Caleb when the line first launched.
Also of interest on the street was a store window at a Levi's store, shown below, which featured a video on what is normally the leather path on the back of the jean. So techie cool!
We were across the street from the Empire State Building just a day and-a-half before the shootings that occurred there in August.
Below, this "Fascinator" (the headpiece, i.e. hat) was atrocious and relegated to Halloween decor!
You might remember Fergie's daughter (not the rocker, the deposed former Princess), Princess Beatrice, wore quite a memorable one to Will & Kate's wedding (which later sold on ebay for 99,000 pounds, or approx. $130 US dollars).
