For the first time, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz for the Metropolitan Home Collection has been working with Phillips Collection to create a home accessories line.
In developing a collection for Phillips, Benjamin expanded his vision of interiors as a still-life and created accessories as sculptural pieces. The collection, which varies from small candle holders to full scale "golden trees," reinforces Metropolitan Home's vision of contemporary modern living. Inspired by forms and colors found in nature, Benjamin expresses his taste for sensual imaginative shapes through many of his pieces, which seem almost animated.
The collection has recently been revealed at the showroom in Las Vegas Market. The new accessories line is gradually exposed to the public from showrooms to public retailers nationwide. More information will be available soon, but here's a sneak peek for you!

Update: Sadly, Metropolitan Home, ceased publishing in December 2009.
