A block away from the Dizon Inc. office in Greenwhich Village you can find Miss Lily’s Bakeshop and Melvin’s Juice Bar! It is our favorite place to grab a bite or get a healthy organic juice. Some of our favorites at Miss Lily’s are the ‘Sweet & Dandy’ and the ‘Jamaican Green’. They are a perfect summer treat at our office!

To learn more about Miss Lily’s Bakeshop and Melvin’s Juice Bar, take a look at these articles in the NYTimes and Guest of a Guest.

Design, Inspiration, Interiors, Some Things We Love

A recent fieldtrip to the ICFF fair got us inspired! Today we will share with you a few of our favorite designs, materials and installations.

A favorite of ours is the Family Tree installation by Frederick McSwain for Bernhardt. The installation consist out of six wall sculptures, each representing the growth, history and people of the Bernhardt family from over the years. The wall sculptures are inspired by the concentric rings of a tree. Frederick McSwain says “When contemplating an appropriate tribute to the generations of Bernhardt craftsmen who carry on the tradition of fine woodworking, this visual was the initial catylist”.

A second installation that captured our eyes was the Antolini Luigi booth. They were presenting a Spanish fossilized limestone in a veneer format, which is available in slabs, tiles and cut-to-size pieces. What fascinated us is how they presented this material in an original refreshing way, by cutting the limestone in pillars resembling a forest of pencils.

Lastly we discovered a new way of creating space dividers, seatings and lighting by the use of Molo’s softwal + softblock modular system. It is a free standing, flexible partition system made from paper and textile structues. It is a very multifunctional and good solution for a temporary wall divider or for seating at an event.

Some Things We Love

For our second installment of Some Things We Love, the Resort 2013 edition, we’re focusing on patterns, prints, and more patterns. There was a lot going on in the resort collections, most noticeably the use of prints and their unexpected combinations. Stripes were paired with florals, large polka-dots mixed with even larger polka-dots, and cheetah on top of cheetah on top of cheetah. Will you test out any of these looks come resort time?

Fashion Week, Some Things We Love

Here at Dizon Inc. we like to share. It could be a great new restaurant, a must-see exhibit or even a new lipstick obsession. So when we get excited about a new discovery or an old favorite, we want to tell you all about it. In this first installment of “Some Things We Love” we wanted to share some favorite images from the Resort 2013 collections.

While browsing the collections on Style.com and imagining our vacation filled lifestyle we kept seeing TWINS pop up! What are they trying to tell us? Below are some examples are our favorite twin-sets!
