San Miguel de Allende's Casamidy does it again! This furniture company, based and produced in Mexico uses metal beautifully, creating furniture with a unique lightness to it. This time, with the Almidi Star Tea Table the the influence is Moorish, and the silhouettes are inspired by archways and lantern patterns, painted in a shock of color.

Add a star to the room with this incredible lime green piece. The best ways to add instant color to a room easily are through a mirror, lamps, throws and pillows.

Great indoors or out, these pieces provide punch and a unique silhouette to the space. Look out for Casa San Miguel, a new book out in April from Rizzoli. Jorge and Anne-Marie Almada of Casamidy wrote the forward to it, all about life and design in this artistic region of Mexico.

I just did a post on Casamidy and the Oasis Hotel! However, I didn't know about the book. Nice post! Lana

I read about your blog on Topsy Turvy and I'm so glad I did! This is a great post on the moorish influence. I'm especially attracted to the turquoise table in the star shape. How fun!
