Rodin in BRONZ-ville

posted by Stephanie R. Richards

Last night Patti received a call, “Would you like to come to the O’Silas Gallery to possibly do a CBS interview for Rodin?”

With the sunrise Patti went to Concordia College. Proudly waiting in the eves, Shanley the Gallery Manager and Susan of the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce eloquently explained and promoted the exhibit The Bronze Age: Rodin & the Methods of a Master. Having served on the Marketing Team, Patti and I are so proud of the show’s success. We hope that you enjoy the interviews and you visit the O’Silas Gallery.

Trim-sanity!

posted by Stephanie R. Richards

On a recent excursion to the NYC showrooms I went a little over-board. My mission was to find trim for 3 custom, throw pillows, to take them from casual to “finished”. The result was 57 trim choices, YES 57!  Hunting through showrooms with only one goal to focus on, I was in my glory. My final and now favorite destination was Samuel & Sons. Pushing through after putting in a full day, I knew that this showroom with its myriad of options would provide a reverie. The vast quantity that they complied just engulfed. Leaving my NY-USA mentality at the door, I felt transported to a place where you stop and appreciate the beauty of each unique trim, one at a time.

Many of today’s trims break with tradition.  The recent fascination with mid century modernism maybe has down played the concept of trim.  When you look at what is available today you’ll see many are fun, sporty and contemporary.  Quite a few options are far less expensive than you might think.  With trim almost any neutral fabric can become a fabulous background for a beautifully appointed pillow or piece of upholstery.  Here are some of my favorites!  If a particular trim appeals, let us know, we’ll happily custom order some chic throw pillows for you!
