AGA and Rob Rainford take the stage in Toronto

Summer started to sizzle in Toronto earlier this month during a book signing with celebrity chef Rob Rainford (http://robrainford.com at the dazzling AGA depot. Rob is a wiz on the barbie with a brand new book guaranteed to add a little spice to any summer soirée.

Fitting for the occasion, as Toronto is home to one of the world’s premiere destinations for all things AGA (, Rob used the AGA Total Control Range Cooker ( to preview a few recipes in his new book.

Things really started to sizzle when Cookshop Manager Daniel Frohlich (handsome devil) fired up the new AGA Total Control Range Cooker 
( for a hungry crowd, boiling, broiling and baking tasty tidbits from Chef Rainford’s book right before everyone’s eyes.

The AGA Total Control Range Cooker ( provides an upgrade to the classic AGA (, with a touch screen control panel allowing the ability to power on or off every part of the cooker.

The Campaign Collection by GRANGE: The History of A Classic Style

Campaign style furniture first made its debut in the 18th and 19th century.  There was a great influx of military presence in Europe, and officers wanted stylish and practical furniture that traveled well.  Brass corners and strappings were some of the hallmarks of this aesthetic.  Dark woods and boxy shapes were other common characteristics.

Today we have seen the Campaign style make a huge comeback.  Utilitarian and stylish, the Campaign look is in high demand.

Grange’s Campaign Collection pays homage to this by-gone era, offering a line with ample storage that breaks down for easy portability.  The bed is offered with or without storage in the base, in a queen or king size, and there are two different dressers and a nightstand to complete the look.  For the office, Grange offers a handsome desk with plenty of surface space, and drawers.  The file cabinet solves storage issues, and conveniently rolls on castors.  Make this your look on the quick!  Grange offers this collection as part of a Quick Ship program.

GRANGE Furniture Featured at ONLYLYON Event

Industry professionals, media and ambassadors were invited to come together on May 17th for Esprit des Sens, an event to celebrate and promote French lifestyle  in New York. ONLYLYON organized the event as a way to spread the word about the French city of Lyon to a targeted audience while displaying Lyon-based products. GRANGE was invited to participate because the GRANGE factory is located directly outside of Lyon. Several GRANGE pieces decorated the Skyroom at Alliance Française, where the event was held. Guests were able to experience Lyon through savory cheeses, wine and crunchy praline tart by François Payard. A few shots from the evening are seen below.

Hospitality Day &Vignette Unveiling @ GRANGE NYC

I was invited to design a vignette in the GRANGE showroom in New York for the launch of Grange's outdoor furniture collection, St. Tropez, which was part of the NYDC building event: Hospitality Day.

Setting up my vignette near the window and showroom entrance, I hoped my "Moroccan Fantasy" vignette would draw people in.  Using Dupioni Silk in a bright orange and fuchsia combination, which I had sewn into stripes, made up the "tent". The lounge chair cushions and throw pillows were a beautiful silk print by Donghia called Spice Market. The velvet for the top of my "tent" was also by Donghia called Covet and all the seat cushions for the chairs as well as the love-seat were an intricately woven fabric called Kanthas by DesignTex. The lighting, brass and copper accessories and gorgeous rug were loaned to me by the Stephanie Odegard showroom. 

I think this whole project turned out really nice. Please feel free to come to the NYDC -200 Lexington Ave. Suite 201. "Marrakech Nights" window will be on display for the next three the way everything may be purchased through a design professional.
