GREENE Concept: the Halloween goodies are coming out at GREENE Concept! The Halloween version of the Berlin chair is a great accent piece – I still like using the Berlin as a coffee table – it’s perfect!

Kunstkammer: Kunstkammer is participating in this week’s 50L Friday sale, so be sure to get by there before 11:59 PM SLT tonight! Her 50L item is a precious beaded curtain – three colors to choose from – and what’s best about the curtain is that it swings when you run through it! Those of us who are children of the 60s-70s remember how exciting it is to run thru a beaded curtain and leave it swinging…yay for an SL version!

The current group gift for the Kunstkammer group is these precious little Spooky Mushrooms – they have little glow particles shooting out, and they are mod so you can resize as needed. I plan to include lots of these in my spooky forest!

*Home Expo 2009* My finds so far!

Standard

Day 1 of the Expo was great! Good traffic, I saw lots of green dots on the map, hanging out at the main stage, and I had lots of visitors to my exhibit. Yay! I did find time to explore 2 of the 4 sims, and I’m going to share some of the cool stuff I found. πŸ™‚

FIRST – let me say this: go the the Expo. πŸ™‚ Here’s the SLurl to my exhibit — start there and then make your way around. Be sure to spend some time at the main stage area — there are raffle items as well as silent auction items! I have not yet checked out all the silent auction items – I’ll do that soon – but I can tell you that I donated my animation services as part of the auction. πŸ™‚ Five custom furniture animations (single pose), of the winner’s choosing. Woot!

Ok, now for the good stuff!

MarcoPolo Furniture by marcopol Oh – a new designer to me – some nice modern furniture, with a bit of a funky pop-art vibe. Two pieces I like are the Table with Wheels and the Square Diamond Dresser:

marco-allHouses for You by Kira Spaatz – another new designer for me. There are a few prefabs set up for display…it’s the Arabian tent that caught my eye. Great texturing – it feels very rich!

arabian-tent-allBelle Belle by Leyla Firefly – of course, one of my favorites. πŸ™‚ Leyla is showing the Mystique Dreamhouse, and this is also her RFL item, so all proceeds from this purchase will go to Relay For Life! I think this may be Belle Belle’s first house, and it’s a great one. I didn’t take pics of the inside, because I want you to go see for yourself :). It’s a nice size without being too big, and has lots of nice artchitectural details.

Another Man’s Treasure by Stormy McCallister – Stormy has been very busy! I ran into her Sunday night while she was setting up…and I was snooping ;)…and we played with the poses in her new living set. It’s full of really sweet, cute couples poses, so be sure to take a pal with you to try them out. πŸ™‚ I really love the colors she’s used in the Arata Spring Collection…and, as always, her fireplace is the awesome!

amt_all2Greene Concept by Peter Stindberg & Ivanova Shostakovich – Greene Concept’s exhibit is catty-corner to mine, which is nice since Peter is my pal. πŸ™‚ Their display looks great — very eye-catching and modern. They’ve got all their staples displayed, with their multitude of gorgeous texture options, and also a few new pieces that I love! The Twisty Bench is awesome – it’s like the modern “twist” on the Victorian conversation bench…and the Brushed Coffee Table is a great match for the Emphasis chairs.

greene-all

Sentiments by Sidda – Sidda Jubilee – Sidda is set up across from me, another shop that’s new to me. She has several styles of really precious swings — and you know I love a swing! – both singles and bench swings. I love the ribbon detail!

Organica by Aki Shichiroji – dear readers, you know I ❀ Organica. So I took a picture of her entire exhibit. It’s all perfection and you need a little bit of everything. πŸ™‚ I already have most of everything, AND I picked up the pack of ferns. You can never have enough ferns.

That’s all for now! More pictures coming as soon as I get out and explore the other two sims. Get out there yourself, and enjoy!

*Designer Review* New Release from Greene Concept

Standard

A new release from Greene Concept: the Emphasis chair. Peter Stindbergh, co-creator/owner, says this in his release notecard:

” Inspired by the modern classic β€œEmeco Navy”, a back-pleasing aluminium cast chair, the Emphasis range offers a LOD (level of depth) optimized modern sculpted look with only 7 prims (including shadowprim). Each Emphasis chair contains 4 poses that can be manually changed or automatically cycled.

Emphasis is available in 9 colors: Blue, Gold Metallic, Green, Orange, Purple, Red, Silver Metallic, Sky and Yellow. The menu-driven β€œAny Color” pack allows seamless tinting plus adding shine and glow.”

The classic silver, red, blue chairs:

The Emeco Navy chair has long been a RL favorite of mine — it’s simple, functional, and really ideal for most any scenario, indoors or out. If you’re not familiar, check it out at Design Within Reach. There’s a nice history of the piece, as well. Greene Concept has done an excellent job with the Emphasis chair, with great attention to the curves and the soft metal feel. I’m (still) in the process of re-designing my sim, and am now definitely planning to find a place for these chairs! I really like the silver chairs for an outdoor cafe…so time to start working on a cafe table. πŸ˜‰ Oh, and a cafe.

Swing by Greene Concept to see all the available colors and try them out!
