Designer Spotlight:  Ani Antreasyan (of Ani Ancient Stone)

Designer Spotlight: Ani Antreasyan (of Ani Ancient Stone)

Facebook status updates are a mixed bag to be sure, but I love Ani Ancient Stone owner Ani Antreasyan’s, which say things like, “working on a garden in the Hampton’s,” or “enjoying the vista from my client’s Manhattan balcony.”  I guess that’s what happens when people follow their dreams – more interesting Tweets.

Trend Report: Where there’s fizz, there’s pop!

The Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago opened recently to much fanfare and glowing reviews and it’s fitting really, because when there’s smoke, there’s fire and when there’s fizz, there’s pop.  Or rather, POP!  I don’t know about you, but I see bubbles floating up past my head as I swim in this […]
