Products I love: A P P A R A T U S

Being a designer, I am immersed in beautiful products on a daily basis.  I'm lucky that I get to meet so many creative people through my line of work!  My goal this summer is to increase activity on my blog (my activity) and stay connected to my readers, clients and fellow designers.
I decided to integrate a few re-occurring posts, my first being Products I Love!
No better way to kick this off than by introducing  you to my new friends Gabriel Hendifar & Jeremy Anderson of 
 A P P A R A T U S Studio.
They were kind enough to let me borrow one of their fixtures in my Showcase room; the Compass Chandelier.  Their pieces are a playful experimentation of vintage lighting & found objects- assembled to create one of a kind eclectic fixtures.  Don't you wish you had one? Here is a tour of their product line. 
CLOUD Chandelier
Cluster of 37 glass orbs, frosted to create the look of 19th Century glass frosting techniques.
Brass Compass Chandelier- obviously my favorite!
Teen Hang out Room at the SF Decorator's Showcase House by yours truly.
African Bowl Wall Lights
Constructed of Kenyan wood bowls- what a pair!
Chain Sconce- I love the play of old and new- to drape the light in front of a mirror- It's a work of art!
They call this the Twig Fixture.  I love the idea of installing this down a hallway, foregoing the typical recessed lights.  This is much more interesting!

Be sure to tell them I sent you!


  1. Hi Emily, I just found your blog through Made By Girl and wanted to come say hello. I'm soooo in love with the space she showcased on her blog- that teen hangout room you did. That ceiling is beyond awesome!! I've been looking around your blog and I love it! I'm really happy to have found you!! These fixtures are gorgeous- my favorite is the cloud chandelier. Have a great weekend and again it's nice to "meet" you. :)
