I just read 1stDibs’ Style Compass with fashion genius Peter Som and had to recommend you do the same.  They always do such a wonderful job in profiling their designers—reading it was such a treat!  In Som’s case we learn about his childhood growing up in the San Francisco bay area the son of two Bauhaus-inclined architects.  He recalls a home brimming with pieces by Knoll and Herman Miller in which he “…would often sit in a Marcel Breuer chair and watch the fog roll over the hills, through the valley and up to the house.”  Sounds fabulous, no?  Som also raves about two of my favorite cities, Paris and Barcelona, and gushes about his love for color (tangerine-orange strié and antique pink…sigh!).  There are also tibits about his time working for Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Bill Blass before starting his own line—impressive to say the least.  Adore him as much as I do?  Read the full article HERE >>>

    I love all the color in his designs. I’m in love with the blues and the pinks and the greys and the oranges…oh dear, this could be a problem. If I click my heels together three times, do you think I’ll discover his entire collection in my closet? Yea, I didn’t think so.
    1stdibs is a great site — this is the first time I’ve seen it.
    (Hope you’re having a lovely day!)

    Hi Brandi! So glad you’re a Som fan too… And 1stdibs is AMAZING. Watch out, you’ll become addicted. I use it all the time for clients and of course, have my own personal “dream 1stdibs wish list” that is a mile long. Antiques from far corners of the world all on one website, GENIUS!
