MY DAUGHTER MEG’S WEDDING DAY. WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY FOR MEG AND MONTANA OVIKIAN.  WE ALL SHARE IN THEIR LOVE AND HAPPINESS!

I CALL IT MALIBU MIST! The gray color of the water & sky in early morning Malibu has inspired me to create fabrics,sleek upholstery, wood stains and accessories to create a serene environment of furnishings for my JR/LIVING collection.

THE BALI LAMP IS NEW TO MY LIGHTING COLLECTION. This lamp has been added to my collection.  I have been inspired by many shapes I have seen in museums and fine homes throughout the world.  These classic shapes make them appropriate in any decor.

THE PERFECT REFRESHMENT CHEST! I designed this chest to hold refreshments and barware.  The inspiration came from a similar one I saw in a 1930’s stylish movie musical.  The size makes it perfect for any room.

SALEM/TAUPE NEW SUNBRELLA STRIPE! Really like this stripe the way it configures on the upholstery.  It was inspired by an Early American textile I found in a remnant shop.

CREATE INTERESTING TABLE SETTINGS WITH SUNBRELLA We have a wardrobe of various patterns I have developed through the years and we like to create different color schemes and change the tablescapes for each party we host.  Here is Upland a wide stripe!

A PARTY FOR FRENCH RELATIVES! My wife and I hosted a summer party for my daughter’s “in-laws” from France. A nice event to see cousins and brother we had not seen since the wedding in France in May 2000. What a delightful group!

WELCOME REFRESHMENT AREA. I used my Sunbrella pattern Chinois/Henna for the table that gets the most spills and activity on a hot LA summer evening.  This pattern was inspired by a kimono I purchased in Kyoto ,Japan.

LIKE THIS PATTERN FOR TABLES. Sunbrella/JR pattern Upland in Denim, a nice wide stripe. The chair seats are Flower Power/Melon.  So easy to entertain when I use Sunbrella for tables skirts and chairs.  Easy care & heavy wear.

TABLES WERE SET UNDER SUNBRELLA AWNING! Pink and Violet flowers set the scene for a perfect LA evening and good American barbeque!
