Happy Hour | 09/23/08
Ding! Ding! Round two of Basil Hayden's Tastemakers Design contest last week, and in this corner (of Stone Lotus Lounge) we have Rion Stassi presenting his octo-armed woody chandelier, inspired by the B.H. bourbon bottle. I haven't been back to Stone Lotus since profiling its décor for this magazine last year, but I'm happy to report that it's still dishing drama with those blood-red walls and wall-length waterfall. Rion's sleek design is a knock-out too. That's the dashing designer above, on the left. The next and penultimate party will be at Angels & Kings on Oct. 2 and you're all welcome to attend if you RSVP here.
