Furniture fair, Milan

The annual Salone Internazionale del Mobile furniture fair begins tomorrow in Milano! I'm following from my desk in Greenwich Village, and while nothing beats midnight dinner parties with locals like the one I'm (re-)posting here, it's not too terrible watching the scene from Twitter. So far on the #milan12 stream, I see that Stockholm studio Form Us With Love got a nice NYT write-up on its mesh metal lamp; the pop-up restaurant Spring Table from London designer Tom Dixon overlooks ruins; Camron PR has spotted Barber Osgerby with the Olympic torch... Will Sarah Natkins post her bold visions to Tumblr???

If you're in New York, stop by Sight Unseen's Shape Shop at Creatures of Comfort. On display in the gallery through May 6 is "geometry-obsessed work of 30 designers who hail from Los Angeles to London." Be there or be square.

In this post, I fondly recall a starry night where I was well-fed with lovely company at the home of photographer Sean Michael Beolchini. Giant gooseneck lamps were swiped from a boulevard; crates served as side tables; cords snaked around potted plants; there were a lot of sneakers.
