If you know Casamidy, then you know they are sought after for their deft metal work, brightly colored finishes and genius designs. You may have seen their shiny nickel Symi lanterns, as they are very popular. The husband and wife duo behind the brand begin with classic silhouettes and make them modern. Streamlined forms and intricate iron work detail set their designs apart from the rest. I have written about them in the past here, but am always excited to share their new designs every season. They can do custom colors and finishes and each piece has that special handmade feel.

Their 1907 home in Brussels is attached to their showroom, the entrance sure is grand.

Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada moved from Mexico to Brussels and their new home is elegant and rustic at the same time.

Their Loop Mirror in mahogany is amazing. You can also get it custom colored.

Every season brings new lantern designs. The Barranca mixes soft edged and classic elements.

The Amidi Bookcase has a detail of a Moorish arch and is painted in a kicky aqua.

The Diego Canopy Bed is like sleeping in the trees.

Their Loop Settee with intricate ironwork on the back is a favorite.

The Manchez Armchair in a traditional Mexican embroidery has intricate mesh and takes the Louis chair to a new place.

Wow! Maybe they also read the J. Crew catalog... a hit of neon is killer on the mesh Theofilio Chair.

Part wing chair part settee, their Ixelles Sofa merges old and new with an iron frame and traditional printed fabric.

The Ixelles Bistro Table and Opera Chairs mix light and airy metalwork with a pedestal table.

I love the Casa Midi designs. They reflect the old distinguished Mexico with a contemporary twist. I had the chance to see them in San Miguel de Allende. Thanks for bringing back the memories!

Every collection they design has something wonderful and unexpected in it that allows me to see things from a new perspective I never thought of before
