BEST IN SHOW JAN SHOWERS & ASSOCIATES If glamour transcends all decades and styles, interior and furniture designer Jan Showers just may have cornered the market. Her latest introductions, the Milan chair and Marilyn sofa, take inspiration from the mid-20th century at its best. Italian at its core, the Milan chair's exquisite lines, velvet upholstery and brass legs exude la dolcé vita, while the Marilyn sofa, which blends precise Italian structure and American 1950s Hollywood sensuality, is framed with stunning, polished merisier (or wild cherry wood). Price upon request at Jan Showers & Associates, 1308 Slocum St., 214.747.5252, JEAN DE MERRY L.A.-based interior and product designer Philip Nimmo began creating custom home furnishings and ironwork at his clients' request 25 years ago. His hand-wrought fireplace screens feature such apropos and slightly ironic Italian words as caldo (hot) and fuoco (fire). His pieces are organic in nature and include Goccia Supremo nesting tables, whose dark bronze iron bases reveal antique gold- leaf interiors set off by natural geodes. To the trade. Price upon request at Jean de Merry, 1505 Hi Line Dr., 214.741.2888, A driana Hoyos' stylish new Chocolate pet bed, a scaled-down version of its Chocolate daybed for humans, might make it easier to keep the pup off the furniture.
