The mirrors in this foyer by Julia Buckingham have haunted me ever since I first saw them in her portfolio. I knew better than to ask Julia about them she because she typically uses antiques or custom, "one of a kind" pieces in her projects which is why her work is so interesting. I thought the mirrors were stunning. They look like the starburst mirrors that were created from antique religious objects. Very unique.
I was thrilled to learn that Julia was including a similar mirror in her new collection for Global Views.
This Pendant Mirror is part of the much anticipated Julia Buckingham Collection for Global Views Colleciton which debuted in Dallas this week at the Dallas Market. The Chicago based interior designer, has turned the design world on ear with the initial 62 piece offerings from the collection. The complete collection will be shown in the Global Views Showroom during the High Point Market in October. Known for her 'Modernique" Style, Julia has a gift at marrying furniture from different periods, styles and aesthetics together to create interesting rooms. She is a designer,collector and a shop owner who scowers the world for interesting finds. Now with the release of this collection we all benefit from her keene eye.
Here's what Julia has to say about her inspiration for the collection:
“My collection [for Global Views] is inspired by all those wonderful items that I’ve found over the years, with the look and feel that it was a lifetime in the making,” explained Buckingham. “I am thrilled to be a part of the Global Views family as they are uniquely positioned to bring my collection to life.” ---- Julia Buckingham
