My good friend and award winning event planner extraordinaire Yifat Oren invited me to dinner the other night at her lovely Hollywood Hills home that she shares with her wonderful husband Jonathan Cutler (Jonny) and their cute children. Having planned some of the finest weddings and events in the world, Yifat has an incredible sense of style and I often consult with her about all that is interesting in decor and design and I love dining at her home!
So, naturally, after "savouring" a wonderful dinner prepared by Chef Cece, we sat down for an evening chat. I think the goal was to be just like normal people and have a normal conversation. Of course, that didn't happen. Yifat and I were only focused on design. Poor Jonny...he wanted to have a regular adult dialogue...where people actually talk and learn about what is going on in each other's lives or talk about issues in the larger world around them. Yifat and I were narrowly focused and only wanted to talk about our latest furniture finds, decorating and design ideas. Anyhooo...about two hours into trying to wrestle us into other conversation areas (like politics, world events, business, literature etc.), Jonny gave up and went to sleep. That left me and Yifat to start our virtual hunt for cool design finds on her computer.
All of this to say, that night Yifat introduced me to the new CASAMIDY website - a site I had not visited in over a year. She had ordered a gorgeous mirror for her hallway from the Mexico based furniture company and had become a die-hard fan of the company. That night she converted me. I have always loved CASAMIDY...had featured some of their items sold at Colcha Home in Venice Beach but I didn't know the extent to which I loved CASAMIDY until that night.
CASAMIDY is owned by the talented husband and wife team Jorge Almada and Anne-Marie Midy. Their new website, revamped earlier this year, is filled with a trove of furniture and accessories treasures. As if Yifat was giving me a tour of her own home (clearly she had spent a bit of time on the website), she deftly guided me through all of the wonderful pieces and photos on Casamidy's site...which include fabulous accessories, lighting, furniture and even some INCREDIBLE apartments and homes (some are even for rent). One glance and I was hooked!
