Shadow Lights

Daniel Pontius

Wonderful light fixtures made in Italy discovered on my recent trip to New York. The designer, Mr.Sallvucci, was born in Foligno, Italy and trained in jewelry design. I am told he came to New York in the 80’s where he designed and produced jewelry and had much success in the fashion world. In 2003, he returned to Italy and went in a new direction coming up with these laser cut and hand shaped aluminum electric flowers. Fantastic. For more information contact:

Interior Design Pillows & Reading

August 4th, 2009

Daniel Pontius

World of Interiors is particularly good this month. To start we have the minty arsenic of the cover story with a framed vintage scarf. I thought this light fixture dynamite–I’d been thinking of this exact thing for my deck if only I had learned to crack off.

Then, we have Bonnard and a new book which would certainly be on my must read list if I happened to read anymore. I have been going back to the books that I should have read at some point but have not. Last night I downloaded The Custom in the Country as I’ve almost finished up with Moby Dick. Okay they are on tape, but how I do wish wish Librivox would do Swann’s Way in English because then I would feel all caught up. Having someone read Proust to me while in bed embroidering pillow fronts seems like it would be quite fun even though I do not have cork lined walls.

Pontius Design has a new batch of pillows to come — think inscriptions from 17th century silver spot boxes.
