All the Best – what a party!


Preston, Ronda and I at the launch party this morning

After much preening and cleaning and hanging of pictures yesterday, we welcomed the fabulous Ronda Carman from All the Best Blog to the VW Home showroom this morning to launch our new partnership. During my most recent trip to Africa in January 2009 I spent some time in Sossusvlei in the desert of Namibia where I captured the most incredible photographs. We decided to offer a limited edition of these for sale to the readers of Ronda’s blog – and to you, of course!

The party this morning included some really wonderful people from New York’s design blogging scene including Michael Devine, Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo, the ever-stylish James Andrew, Tobi Fairley, Patricia van Essche and my good friend Preston Bailey – to name a few.

Here are some photos we took at the event – wish you could all have been here! The Namibia pictures are currently up in the showroom – please stop by if you’re in Manhattan. If you want to learn more about how to buy one, read the press release below, or visit

The really horrible, sad thing is that were expecting an enormous shipment to come in on Monday, so all the dusting and fluffing to have a beautiful showroom will be undone when tons of accessories and furniture from Indonesia, Thailand and India arrive – so the showroom will have to be taken apart to fit it all, but I am excited about the new pieces to add to the showroom-family.

It was so nice that Preston came – being such a busy, glamorous, party-giving, Mr Wonderful, super-star I really appreciated that he came to spend the morning with us. He did some shopping at VW Home while he was here and then he was off to try on his outfit for his birthday bash, which he will probably have to be stitched into just like Marilyn Monroe for JFK’s birthday party. But I bet you he won’t be a breathy when he sings it! (Unless the clothing is so tight that he won’t be able to breathe…)

    Wonderful news! Thank-you to Rhonda for including me in such a nice morning. Vincent your work really does cross boundaries and raise ones mind to think globally. I enjoyed seeing your work, your showroom and meeting you. You have a warmth and passion for interiors as well as exteriors.

  • What a wonderful collaboration! One of my very favorite blogs and a designer whose scope of work I am inspired by and admire … working together … brilliant.

    Vicente, those photographs are gorgeous. I especially love the black and white photo printed on textured paper. Almost like a charcoal drawing. So fabulous.

    This may have been my very favorite Friday morning – EVER. I truly appreciate your invitation to take part.

  • Love your interiors and your photography.

    I had the pleasure of attending your slide show discussion and photography show in Houston several years ago, as well as your participation at the Decorative Center in Houston during design week. As a designer myself, you have been one of the designers that I most admired and respected.
