We just returned from market in exciting New York City, where the weather was ideal and the shopping just as glorious! In fact, the home furnishing industry has never looked so plush. Starting at the Oly Showroom, where we found luxurious new textiles, like this misty lavender velvet fabric shown on Oly's Michael chair.

Oly's antique mirror Grayson drum pendant was a scene stealer with plenty of sparkle and shimmer (below).The Flower Drop Pendant (upper right), is one of Oly's newest chandelier's. It's made of cast resin and is available in wonderful colors, including amber, blush, frost white, clear and plum. We're dying to see it in plum (shown here in amber).
You have to love the bird bowl, great as a table centerpiece. And Oly's new circle faux zebra lamps are a fun take on an old standby.
Meanwhile, Shine offered fantastic high style, bling!

Check out these exciting new pillows, very edgy.

There were even crystals on the back of chairs.

The creative power behind all these amazing designs...Susan Ortiz (Left),
owner/designer of Shine. What a treat it was to meet her, after all she's a celebrity in our world. We love all of Shine's new products, including this sofa made of hemp fabric.

And new works by Madeline Longstreet of Longstreet Collection were marvelous.

But all good trips must come to an end. It was farewell to the wonderful views from the incredible Trump International Hotel on Columbus Circle. But at least we returned to our loving families full of energy and inspiration...ready to take on the world! For more information on these products contact Tonic Home at 440-893-9800.

Wendy, looks like you had a very inspiring trip. I've always loved the Longstreet botanicals and the Oly bird bowl.
