Wanderlust by Yuri Tag

Company: Studio McCormack

Home: Costa Mesa, CA

Design Inspiration: “The idea started with the desire to create a timeless mirror that adds an element of nature to any space and could stand alone as the focal point. Largely influenced by the spirit of adventure, this design instantly transports one to a tropical oasis, a definite "selfie-worthy" or shareable moment."

Deconstructed Deco

by Colleen Smith

Design Inspiration: “I was inspired by the fundamental elegance of Art Deco. Geometric shapes and interesting line work is as current now as it was in the period's heyday. I'm an eclectic designer; I can see this pattern of interplaying angles featured in many different environments.”
