Last night, LA based friends Brian Ferrick and Alex Mason of Ferrick Mason fabrics had a wonderful party to welcome fall and kick off some new print designs. Hosted by Blair Voltz Clarke, an artists representative for international contemporary artists, her art filled home provided the perfect back drop for Ferrick Mason's jubilant prints. Artist Alex Mason's framed original works on paper were also on display, as Blair represents her work. I loved seeing the artwork next to the FM Fabrics, it showed the progression of her artistic range on paper and textiles. Back in their hometown, Joe Lucas and Parrish Chilcoat of Lucas Studio were having a party to celebrate the opening of their new Harbinger Showroom in West Hollywood, too bad I could not be on both coasts simultaneously!

Fabrics at the ready to show guests

Blair has a fantastic tablescape on her lucite coffee table that includes a commemorative William and Kate wedding cookie.

Alex's paintings were on display

The paintings happened to coordinate nicely with the color palette of the interiors

Against the night sky the graphic elements of her work really stood out

Another fantastic grouping of objets sit alongside a Spitzmiller lamp with a modern blue painting by Sara Genn on the wall

Blair is an art dealer, so incredible paintings and installation pieces were on display. A vivid, circular piece by Dan Bennett hangs between the windows.

Alex specially designed the hand painted fabric tablecloth for the event. Jessica Young created delicious passed creations, like BLT Bites.

A pillow with simple flange in their Brier print is available on their website

A classic mantelpiece with a pop of color

I couldn't resist a shot of Blair's office, with art and books galore. A creative haven!
