More Douglas Friedman...

Yesterday's Douglas Friedman post was
certainly popular — so I am sharing more
today from this very talented (and handsome)
photographer. He has almost inspired me
to grow a smokin' 70's stache!
The images I'm featuring here single
out a design element, accessory, or color story
that I am often drawn to. These elements just so
happen to show up in these spaces captured
so beautifully by Mr. Friedman. Here, we
see the use of branches I am so fond of.
With design blogging, we often neglect to note
the photographer that captures the well-designed
spaces we are talking about. For this post, it is
all about Mr. Friedman's work. One exception
is this fan-freaking-tastic space from
Beautiful ebonized floors in this space, and below.
The self-contained library is brilliant.
Now that is one bold floor lamp! I love
industrial fixtures like this. While we're on
the subject, check out this great lamp from
Restoration Hardware.
Unconventional artwork is a favorite
of mine as well.
Grey and Red! Love it.
What a handsome collection of vintage tools.
Given the right opportunity, I would
absolutely go with this "custom" console.
Noble and pristine at the exact same time.
Gorgeous wall finish.
Small interesting tables repurposed
into small interesting desks
always appeal to me.
Here's another shot of those walls.
Stylish, suave, rustic, smart perfection.


  1. These are some amazing images...not sure where I shake out on the haystack and gigantic lamp, but love everything else! Really blown away by his extensive portfolio of work!
