This past Friday I had the pleasure of attending the West | Out East & Interior Design Design Party to benefit DIFFA in the Hamptons.  We always love to be part of a good cause, and it was a beautiful evening to benefit a cause near and dear to me, DIFFA.  As always, the folks at Interior Design Magazine put on a fantastic event, and you couldn't have asked for a more beautiful evening in the Hamptons.  A big thank you to West Out East who opened their doors to host the event.

Board of Trustees DIFFA

It is with great pride, a ton of commitment and strong emotions that I am announcing my appointment to DIFFA's Board of Trustees!

The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS was founded 30 years ago by Patricia Green and Larry Pond. DIFFA is the oldest and one of the largest funders of direct care for people living with AIDS and preventive education for those at risk.

FontanaArte Milan

The architect and design studio Calvi & Brambilla designed the new flagship store for FontanaArte in Milan with an obvious focus on the company’s products: modern lighting solutions. The sober and slightly dark interior gives the products the full chance to glow. The 2500SF floor is filled with custom-made Botanic Picea rhombus' used  in a fascinating way.

June Issue of Interior Design Magazine

We are so glad that our presence in the June issue of Interior Design magazine is so DIFFA-focused. Our full page ad highlights Bolon's involvement as a DIFFA Specify With Care® Affiliate. As an Affiliate, we have designated that 5% of all North American sales of Bolon's Create collection go directly to DIFFA. So far this year, we have been able to donate slightly more than $11,000 as a result of this program!

In addition to our involvement with Specify With Care®, we have become active participants in, and attendees at, DIFFA special events. Several weeks ago, Anthony Weege, our North American Sales Director, and I attended the 30th Anniversary of founding of DIFFA. This milestone was celebrated, at NeueHouse by Rockwell Group, with a discussion moderated by Interior Design editor in chief and DIFFA's board chair Cindy Allen. A picture of Anthony and I (number 5 below), deep in discussion, was included in the SNAPs section.

Heron Tower, London

We are inspired by the creative installation in The Heron Tower, a commercial skyscraper in London. At 230 meters high, it is the third highest building in Greater London. 

Peldon Rose, a workplace consultant’s agency, designed a 1000 square metre office in the building and installed flooring from Bolon in an intricate way by combining areas of Bolon Studio Wing with areas of standard tiles, all in Create Como. The result is a shifting and beautiful blue floor.

Back in the USA

After three weeks of traveling in Europe for business and a quick vacation, it feels good to be back in the USA...and back at my desk.  I missed the energy and fast pace of NYC and it's good to be back working hard with my rock star team.  

The first half of 2014 has been our best so far, and the second half of the year has many new and exciting projects in the pipeline.  So stay tuned...we promise to keep you entertained and inspired.

Happy 4th

As we close down the NYC showroom and head out for the long holiday weekend here in the US, we wanted to wish you all a Happy 4th of July. We hope you all have plans to spend the extra time with your friends and family, enjoying good food and great company. 

We all work so hard, it is nice to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor.

High pressure

This is a unique photo from Sweden... Three containers loading at the same time full of Bolon flooring! A lovely look, isn't it :-)
