Several months ago I was contacted by LUXE magazine, asking to profile me in their Style Maker section. I was thrilled and honored to be asked and even more excited to see it in print!
LUXE is a wonderful magazine, featuring beautifully designed luxury homes in Chicago and other US markets (Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Northwest, Texas).
We were so excited today when we received a call from a lovely lady in Loredo, Texas, looking for the Quality Cuts Placemats we carry here at MAZE. She'd seen them in La Cucina Italiana's Holiday Gift Guide (December 2010), with MAZE listed as the retailer. We knew the guide would include us, we just weren't sure of the publication date.
We love that she's from Texas and she's looking for the cow version of the placemat!
. . . the holiday gift season!
We received a shipment of six pallets today, including 47 boxes of items perfect for gifts - for your loved ones, yourself and your home!
We filled the sidewalk and it took a team of five to get everything inside the already bursting-at-the-seams store. The back (shipping) room was already loaded and now the hallway, coat closet and office are packed!
The Astier de Villate shipment from my summer trip to Paris has finally arrived and we're unpacking as quickly as we can!
Seeing these beautiful dishes called to mind so many wonderful experiences in Paris - especially an amazing afternoon at the home of Juan Pablo Molyneux - so I wanted to share some photos and memories of that day with you. Read more»
Wow, this is turning out to be a really a-MAZE-ing week! As you know, Lars Bolander will be here on Thursday, October 14, signing his new book, Scandinavian Design. He's wonderful and I hope you can come by the store to meet him. You can see photos of Lars with Martha Stewart and other celebs at his book launch party and of his Palm Beach home in this Wall Street Journal article.
And back by popular demand, Aubrey Thorne of LA's Thorne Room will be at MAZE Home this week with her custom shirts for men and women! Read more»
I am so honored (and excited!) that Palm Beach and New York-based Swedish designer Lars Bolander will be signing his new book, Scandinavian Design, at MAZE Home Store on Thursday, October 14 from 10 to 5.
This is Lars' only scheduled book tour appearance in the Chicago area so don't miss it!
To celebrate, we're giving away a copy of Lars' book. Read on for more details. Read more»
A big thank you to family and friends, old and new, who came out for the Meredith Merrill jewelry trunk show last Thursday!
It was a beautiful fall evening, the jewelry was sparkling and there was a bit of the 'old home week' vibe with people running into friends they hadn't seen since high school!
And I promise you, Meredith and I did not plan our matching 'jewel toned' dresses!
It's finally fall and we're ramping up the trunk show schedule. And we're kicking off the season with a bang!
Meredith Merrill, designer and all around wonderful woman, will be at MAZE Home tomorrow, Thursday, September 30 from 5 to 8 pm to share her new fall collection of vintage modern jewelry!
What a ball!
For the past several years, I have been honored to attend the American Friends of Versailles' Bal de Versailles. The event raises funds for the restoration of the buildings and grounds of Versailles and includes events at the palace and throughout Paris. Look at that golden sunset on the palace marble. The light here really is different!
