Christophe Côme

My second discovery from the June issue of Architectural Digest is Christophe Côme.  I loved the sideboard of his they featured in the magazine, and surprisingly, liked a lot of his other designs.  I say surprisingly because modern/mid-century design and I have not had a good history together, but it’s growing on me.  I can now see me mixing in some simple pieces with older antiques.  Like David Wiseman, what I’m drawn to about Côme’s work is the mix of metal and glass.  I’ve always loved wrought iron work, and I made it a point to visit the Murano glass factories on my jaunt through Europe during college.  The craftsmanship of these two métiers is mesmerizing to see.

David Wiseman

I was reading the June issue of Architectural Digest and made two discoveries on the same page.  Although I’m pretty sure I’ve seen David Wiseman‘s work before, I can’t quite remember where and this is the first time I have a name to put with the beautiful work.  Wiseman works in ceramics, glass and metal crafting amazing nature-inspired lighting, furniture and installations.  I really like the flowers crawling along the ceiling, but I have a special place for all things ginkgo.
