I attended a fun little design industry event last night at Center 44. It was my first time there, and I like the concept. It's a showroom space that accomodates about 75 antiques and art dealers in a high-end "booth" set-up. Most of the vendors featured at Center 44 have their goods for sale on 1st Dibs as well.
While there, I was reminded of my love for Venini polyhedral glass lighting from the 1960s. There were so many excellent examples of it there! The clear and amethyst color combo (see picture below) is my favorite, but you can also find it in amber and blue glass. There are some more great pieces here and here.
