Last night I went to the opening reception of Model Citizens, a showcase of 50 independent designers' work. The show runs through tomorrow (Monday) night at 7p, so hurry over there! There are tons of gorgeous housewares, furniture, jewelry, and collectibles. My friend, Ben Light, is one of the many talents showing his work this weekend. He makes really great wooden lamps and mirrors:
Aren't these fun?! He also makes paper cranes then dips them in liquid rubber to make these rad mobiles:
^Totally fell for this unique, fun jewelry by Emily Rothschild. Her skyline bracelets are awesome!
^There's a store set up inside the gallery where you can buy some of the designers' work. I bought this gorgeous NYC metro cuff by Tiffany Burnette of Design Hype, Inc. Love it!
^This wee furniture would be uber cute in a kid's room!
^Squirrel for your wall?
