DESIGNING A NIGHT OUT AT HARBINGER - A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!

So...went to chic Los Angeles home furnishings showroom Harbinger last night.  Met up with the COCOCOZY Team (CM and LH came along) for a quick stop by for an anniversary party/book signing.

When I first arrived, I ran into showroom owner and fab interior designer Joe Lucas and showroom manager Tami Carey who are both so awesome.  I didn't see Parsish Chilcoat though...she owns Harbinger along with Joe...I'm sure she was there but I was too busy gabbing.

I love Harbinger...for a few reasons...1) I love the amazing collection of fine furniture they have curated...2) the textiles they sell to the trade are gorgeous and 3) Harbinger carries the COCOCOZY textiles collection and sells fabric by the yard to the trade!

So generally, I love the overall vibe of Harbinger but last night I had so much fun nosing around gorgeous furniture.  Here are some things that were quite exciting to see last night.

Everyone was so nice...including Amanda Nisbet who gave me a tip on some furniture I need for COCOCOZY HQ.

Fun night overall!

Anything here that you see that you like? Any design inspirations from the things I like? Do tell.

Happy Wednesday again!

P.S. Tonight am supposed to go to another event.  It is up in the air as to whether I'll be able to squeeze that in!  I'll try!

  2. I really love the lampshade. Everything else is really awesome too. The fabrics and the cushion are something I'd really love to have.
