ART + DECORATION M innesota retailer Room & Board's striking new Pren collection features tables and storage cabinets with natural quartz surfaces by Cambria, an 80-year-old family- owned brand with Minnesota roots. The collection is perfect for both residential and commercial use, and includes coffee tables, console tables, and dining and bar cabinets. Dining tables easily double as conference tables and desks for the offi ce. The collection is crafted in domestically sourced walnut and oak with natural quartz surfaces in three designs, ranging from light to golden to dark. Surfaces are nonabsorbent and scratch- and stain- resistant. Pren collection $2,999 to $5,799, at Room & Board, 4524 McKinney Ave., Rebecca Sherman S hinola, the Detroit-based accessories brand, made headlines last year with the opening of its fi rst hotel, housed within fi ve old structures in downtown Detroit, including the historic Singer building. The brand is the brainchild of Dallas-area businessman Tom Kartsotis (who also founded Fossil) and is best known for its artisan watches and craftsman leather bags made in Detroit. Shinola's latest splash is a collaboration with Waterworks, which custom- designed the bathroom fi ttings and tiles for Shinola H otel. STYLE ON TAP Produced under the Waterworks Studio label, the limited-edition industrial- inspired Ludlow Shinola Edition fi ttings are influenced by Shinola's Runwell watch design, with fi ttings in two-tone nickel-and- Shinola steel combinations, and includes handsome faucets, lever handles, a robe hook, and a hand shower.

Rebecca Sherman CLEARLY A TREASURE TROVE BELOW THE SURFACE I n 2001, Evan Lobel discovered a cache of hundreds of pieces of Murano glass that had been stored away, unseen, for decades in Venice's renowned glass- blowing factory, A.V.E.M. Lobel, a dealer and researcher specializing in 20th-century modern furnishings and art, knew just how rare the pieces — made by such preeminent artists of the era as Anzolo Fuga and Guilio Radi — were. Lobel eventually purchased the collection and later sold much of it to another collector in New York City, where it was passed around to various family members after his death. Here's where local showroom owner George Cameron Nash comes in. Nash had been on the hunt for colorful glass accessories for a client earlier this year, and a friend told him about the hidden collection, which by this time, had been languishing under an Indiana porch for the last 17 years in the original crumbling boxes. "I took a plane to Indiana and ended up washing off years of dirt, bugs, and all sorts of remains" from the trove, Nash says. He brought back 65 pristine vases, bowls, and other vessels, from which the client selected a small group. The rest are on display and for purchase at his showrooms in Dallas and Houston.
