You may have heard a little rumour that we are designing the entrance lobby for Decorex 2011!  Very exciting….and made even more so by the fact that Philip Colbert has agreed to work with us to add a fashion element to our surrealist dreamscape. And who better let’s face it.   His last collection featured the most dramatic take on lobster-wear I have ever seen.  Makes Wallis’s dress look positively old fashioned.

I have to confess we are ALWAYS up for a lobster.  As you can see here we even worked them into our table-scapes for the Cartier Windsor Polo decor a few summers ago.

GaGa’s on the bandwagon too….as my colleague Ethan reminds me.

And my office sports a few hidden darlings – just for good luck.

Recently spotted in Brno….I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a sweet and suitable lobster cartouche as this restaurant wields. It puts the Red Lobster to shame.

And do NOT miss the fact that they have been worked in 3D grisailles into the window surrounds.  Subtle, brilliant, and suitable…I do believe even Elsie might approve.

While I confess I have not used it, I think Georgia Horton’s quadrille wallpaper is very clever indeed.

    …And then they taste so good paired with champagne too! You’ve gotta love yourself some lobster!

    that is a grand paper from Quadrille, I have to say GAGA pales in comparison to Isabella Blow. With Isabella -she wore the crustacean-while with LG the lobster wears her. pgt

    We were at a party
    His ear lobe fell in the deep
    Someone reached in and grabbed it
    It was a rock lobster

    We were at the beach
    Everybody had matching towels
    Somebody went under a dock
    And there they saw a rock
    It wasn’t a rock
    It was a rock lobster

    Motion in the ocean
    His air hose broke
    Lots of trouble
    Lots of bubble
    He was in a jam
    S’in a giant clam

    Down, down

    Underneath the waves
    Mermaids wavin’
    Wavin’ to mermen
    Wavin’ sea fans
    Sea horses sailin’
    Dolphins wailin’

    Red snappers snappin’
    Clam shells clappin’
    Muscles flexin’
    Flippers flippin’

    Down, down

    Let’s rock!

    Boy’s in bikinis
    Girls in surfboards
    Everybody’s rockin’
    Everybody’s fruggin’

    Twistin’ ’round the fire
    Havin’ fun
    Bakin’ potatoes
    Bakin’ in the sun

    Put on your noseguard
    Put on the lifeguard
    Pass the tanning butter

    Here comes a stingray
    There goes a manta-ray
    In walked a jelly fish
    There goes a dogfish
    Chased by a catfish
    In flew a sea robin
    Watch out for that piranha
    There goes a narwhale
    HERE COMES A BIKINI WHALE!
