Two pieces of distinction.

Casamilano brings us two pieces of furniture worthy of being noted as Most Excellent Things. The first piece, (shown below), is the "Omega" cabinet. This ebony-stained ash cabinet is finished with a distinctive bronze cast handle. The handle is made using the natural sand method. Measurements:  100" wide x 45" deep x 112" high. Made in Italy. Designed by Laboratorio Avallone.

"Asmir" Ottoman table by Paola Navone for Casamilano

I love Heraldic lions. The icon for my firm is a cross between a Heraldic lion and a griffin. The icon was hand-drawn and then finished for accuracy and precision by a graphic designer. I especially love the claws of this iconic symbol, (seen at the header of this blog). That leads me to this beautiful ottoman table. The "Asmir" by Casamilano is a wood structure table with fully removable upholstery and polyurethane foam filling. The interesting and very distinctive lion claw feet are made of resin and hand-decorated to achieve a stone like effect. I wish I had a place in my apartment for either one of these magnificent pieces of furniture. Perhaps it is time to re-decorate!
