Last night I went to the party celebrating Adlon's opening with B&B Italia & MaxAlto and took some pictures to share the beautiful showroom with you! chair greets you at the front door. Brainchild of the 60s -it has an umbilical cord connecting the 'mother' (see the anatomy) to the 'child'. Convienently it kept the ottoman from rolling out the front door! Weird but I'm sure it's probably very comfy.
The party was in full swing when I arrived!
Great vignettes had been set up all over the store, I love this shelving system!
The showroom is housed in an old industrial building with thick stone walls along the canal in Georgetown. I love these old steel windows (Hopes perhaps?) and the rough walls compared with the painted highly polished concrete floor.
The showroom is set up into individual 'stores' for each brand that they carry. I loved this chair in MaxAlto, one of the guests of honor - creamy buttery leather!
Juxtoposition is everything in this store! The modern with the 'victorian', the polished with the interesting!
Another great vignette. Notice the shadows -this store has exquisite lighting! See the 'vase' form cut out of cardboard and then a black edge done with a sharpie (?maybe?) creating the form. Thats a fun idea!
I can't get enough of those walls (I hate these chairs looks a bit like 'star trek' -see I don't love EVERYTHING always).
This lamp with the purple'ish shade adds some great color to the primarily B&W space.
I love these low couches and sections - perfect for a party (obviously!) This was the most popular spot in the showroom!
The wardrobes had 'clothes' cut out of vellum and backlit: I wonder what intern had the job of making these? Another cute touch in the showroom!
I loved this little seating nook - check out that gold vase and white screen!
So cute - yeah for color!! Love the stool too! I guess the white rug and bright lighting kept people from sitting here?The other guest of honor - B&B Italia - love these ! Also love the red dress, she really stood out in the crowd of black clothed guests!Pretty tulips near the giftbags -a reminder that spring starts today!
I hope you all enjoyed coming along to the party with me! You can visit their website HERE.
