Trip to the Getty

When my daughter was home from college for the holidays, we took a trip to the Getty Museum. It was very interesting and inspiring. Here are a few pix:
This is a chair that was partially embroidered and mostly embellished with ribbon that twists and turns. The interesting thing to me was all the little pleats in the ribbon as it went around the turns - those pleats were made into part of the design...

Wouldn't you love to go to bed to THIS every night?

I wanted to see how the center of this "flower" was made. I don't know exactly what it was made of, but each "petal" just seems to be bent in the proper shape to form this flower - I've never seen anything like that...

What a great museum trip. I haven't been there in so long. I'll have to put it on the list of things to do again before I die. =)

I love that chair embellishment!
