It's Friday!  What a week it has been.  I'm glad the weekend is here, but I won't be relaxing too much.  I will be at the Villa de Luxe Designer Show House as docent for my room.  If you are in the Houston area and haven't stopped by to see this beautiful 1927 Mediterranean Revival style home, you must!  All of the designers did a wonderful job.  The house is open this weekend and next weekend.  But if you aren't able to make it, here is a quick virtual tour from Houston Culture Map.  Thank you Lisa for a great video on the home!


And now to our Fabulous Finds...enjoy!


I'm loving Blanco's new sink, Silgranit II.  "Featuring an ultra-durable and cleanable surface made of 80% rock-hard granite, SILGRANIT II resists scratches, stains and heat and holds 7 patents for its advanced technology.  And with 7 colors and 23 shapes to choose from, the SILGRANIT II collection fits more than just your style, it fits the way you live."--Blanco website


Thomas O'Brien's introduces his fourth collection with Groundworks, at Lee Jofa.  Traditional to his signature design, his fabrics have a masculine and tailored look.  "O’Brien’s fresh take on classic patterns conjures images of a sleek Manhattan townhouse or a posh bachelor pad, where layered texture and tone create a look that is rich and sophisticated."--Lee Jofa

A Fall '12 introduction, the Cooper Console Table by Currey and Co, has a sleek, modern approach to a traditional French scalloped console table.  Love the dainty, feminine curved legs!

The Classic Clean Touch Steel Warming Drawer, from Miele,


Now I'm saving the best for last!  I tumbled across this little guy from fellow designer and blogger, Jennifer Mehditash--Decaporter.  She featured this amazing product on her blog yesterday.  Introducing the flat extension cord, Post-Line, by designer Chen Ju Wei with Yanko Design.  No more issues of seeing the extension cord under the rug.  Hallelujah!
