I was reading an article recently that claimed terrazzo is on its way out. I beg to differ -- terrazzo is classic. To wit: this Terrazzo Coffee Table by m.a.d. furniture design via Industry West. The design is simple but the colors (minty green, pink, grey) give it some pizzazz. The glass and terrazzo tabletops are interchangeable, so you can put the terrazzo on the bottom shelf if you like, as in this picture:
As you might have noticed, the frame comes in two colors, white or black. There is also a side table version if you prefer.
The Terrazzo Table is $409 at Industry West.
The next random photo of random things is this stunning image "Breathless," by Sergio Cabezas, via Creative Commons/Flickr. (His photography is amazing and I strongly recommend you check it out.) The cherry blossoms, black hair, red sweater and lips, and pale blue sky serve as inspiration for today's project, a rather glam living room concept.

His designs are right in my sweet spot of color and pattern, and this Adler-designed Vienna Globe pendant lamp from Robert Abbey is no exception. It's a Sputnik-type pendant lamp, featuring white circular glass pieces arranged in a globe shape. It's a little like a dandelion (the IKEA MASKROS lamp that was everywhere a few years ago had a similar look with paper instead of glass pieces -- "maskros" even means "dandelion" in Swedish). Each piece of glass features a pattern made from tiny air bubbles for a handcrafted look.
If that's too rich for your blood, try the Floret 8-Light Satin Brass Chandelier with Clear Crystal Accents from Home Depot. It doesn't have the mod hex-shaped white glass pieces that the Adler pendant has; instead, it has flower-shaped crystal pieces (and that's why it's called Floret). It's slightly larger than the medium-size Adler lamp. It probably looks even more like a dandelion than the Adler does. And best of all, it's only $249. So if you are looking for that dandelion Sputnik look, it's worth checking out.
