The 2010 Spring Collection from 18 Karat

Canadian designer Maureen Whelton really hit the mark with this fresh white spring collection.
The white textured ceramic pieces mixed with opalescent glass in pale blues are crisp and beautiful.

The showroom was accented with white roses everywhere.

For the first time this season they are adding offerings of Mirrors and table/floor lamps from another Canadian company.

The lamps mix well with existing product and they are not acrylic.
They are glass and crystal at remarkably affordable price points.

One of the marble and steel coffee tables with the frosted vases surrounded with a 1/2 " mini ruffle out of the glass....How cool is that?

Some of the new mercury glass table lamps

These are gorgeous. The one on the left is the "River Rock" lamp and it looks just like crystal river rocks stacked up. Stunning! We carry this line at Beadboard.
Even though our shop is more Euro Country, people appreciate the artistry and texture of 18 Karat, and the collection changes every six months so there is always something new.

A blog note: I just discovered "The Provence Post" Julie Mautner is an experienced free lance magazine writer who lives in the South of France she is refreshingly entertaining. Check it out!!!
Another note: There's been a lot posted about Haiti. Please donate to the aid agency of your choice, Red Cross, Unicef, any of them......
