CASAMIDY....!



From the very first image I stumbled upon, I was hooked on Casamidy!  I have followed Casamidy's work for almost two years now.



The images of their products combined with aged, deteriorating backgrounds was a look that definitely caught my eye!


Casamidy is the brainchild of Jorge Almada and Anne-Marie Midy.


Formed in 1998, Casamidy employs  artisans specializing in areas such as metalsmith, leatherwork, and carpentry.


The work is designed solely by Anne-Marie and Jorge.



Don't get me wrong, their work is beyond fantastic....but don't ignore those backdrops!


Award winning photographer Ricardo Labougle is responsible for those amazing shots!




Casamidy's furniture is timeless in these settings.




They have a line of metal "twig" pieces that are very smart!



I am not the only one watching these collaborators. Their work has been published in World of Interiors, Elle Decor, Traditional Home and many other leading decorative magazines.


Labougle  chose elaborately designed backgrounds to compliment the simple, solid lines of Casamidy furniture and accessories.


Mexico was one of the main sources for these incredible interiors.

Casamidy also has a facebook page....I hope you look further into their sites and fall in love with them as I have!

Hi, Theresa, I checked out the Casamidy site on Facebook and enjoyed perusing their products, especially the clever candle stands. Interestingly, your posting is a better representation of their work - I think they'd do well to hire you as a Web consultant! ... Mark

Dear Theresa, Fantastic work by a group of incredibly talented artisans.
I agree with Mark, you are showcasing their work better than they have.

My favorite kind of "decor"- aged, with character.
Love Cassamidy's pieces, as well.

Wouldn't it be fun to work on their team?

They certainly chose a fabulous photographer...the settings are perfect to show off their designs.

Just to be fair, I pulled all of these photos from their facebook page, most of them are on their website as well....I have just stalked them for so long, i know the best shots to use! :)

Wow! Thank you, Theresa, for this introduction to Cassamidy. Love all the images, the creativity with the pieces, the photo shoots. Fantastic post!

I want that silver bedpost. Do you think it will go well in a 1940 cottage? Thanks for the eye treat, Theresa....you are so savy and have such a flair for design.

LOOOOOVE Casamidi! Another fantastic post, Theresa! Thank you so much for sharing!

Theresa,
Beautiful backdrops, the furniture I find not so impressive.
So much furniture is high style, made to look good, but poorly designed. Much is uncomfortable or even downright aggressive.. Those exposed steel corner can take a bite out of legs! and there's not enough padding to cushion that steel back..
now to check out their other work.

I think I also love better the backdrops than the actual Casamidy products :) Those aged looking and indian/mexican (?) walls are really wonderful. Thanks for sharing, Theresa!

Oh, I know, I know, I know!!! I love their work. I've saved some of the articles. Their bedroom in Mexico is one of my favorite rooms ever. It is on my bulletin board as we speak.
Have missed my visits with you...but I am back. Hope you're enjoying the beauty of the season, Miss T.
