EXPRESSIVE FORMS

The bold colors, geometric shapes and painted 22-carat details of Emily
Adams 14-piece line of contemporary furniture, which debuted at Interior
Designs Inc. October 2, are more than randomly chosen elements of
design. An interior designer for 22 years, Adams believes that we surround
ourselves with objects that impart a sense of well being to our lives. And her
aesthetic is based as much on symbols of spiritualism as it is on period styles
of the 15th to the 19th centuries. The neo-classic triangular shapes on
some of the pieces, for example, are partly inspired by Empire furnishings.
But they are also an homage to the pyramidal structures of ancient
cultures. Adams herself describes the collection as somewhat ecclesicstical in
flavor. Yet its shapes and motifs are stylized to fit a contemporary viewpoint
so effectively that each of the pieces works in a variety of environments.
