On The Mossy Side

I first become aware of Moss when I dined at, the now closed, NY restaurant Centovini. The restaurant displayed lighting fixtures from Moss and I was immediately enamored with the whimsical designs. When Centovini closed I discovered the Moss retail store in SoHo and I now make frequent trips. It's like going to the coolest museum, and budget allowing, being able to purchase the art. From silverware to grand pianos, the Moss collection is a trip to a more interesting reality... I like to think that if I fell down a rabbit hole, this is what that world would look like.

Oh, and side note... If you like a little chow with your funky lamps and chotchkies then check out the display/store designed by Philippe Stark at Bazaar Restaurant at the SLS Hotel in LA. Chef Jose Andres does not disappoint either.

Now take a walk through the moss...

The above are from the Moss exhibit Where There's Smoke, by artist Maarten Baas. I found myself day dreaming about these pieces long after seeing them. There is something both spooky and beautiful about burnt furniture.

I am not a fan of guns typically but somehow done in gold, with a classic black shade, this Philippe Starke lamp oozes cool to me. (Also available in rifle size!)

From gorgeous to buggy, there is lighting for every taste

Shouldn't everyone have a bust of Benjamin Franklin and a gold piggy bank?

Unexpected, whimsical and gorgeous pieces from multiple Moss exhibits
