Who is already thinking about the upcoming Oscar's this Sunday, February 26th? Many of us I know tune in to see the oh-so-fabulous gowns or lack there of. But, this year not only am I scouting out the great fashion, but my eyes will be focused on this year's Greenroom. Oh the Greenroom, where celebrities retreat before taking the stage to present the heavy man himself.... Mr. Academy. This year's celebrity sanctuary will be furnished by the very, very talented Frank Pollaro. Owner and designer of Pollaro Handmade Furniture his custom made pieces utilize and incorporate the worlds most rare and impeccable materials. When I think of Mr. Pollaro's furniture, one word comes to mind EXQUISITE - really no other. I have had the great experience of working with he and his company on a job site a couple of years ago. In person, the pieces are even more stunning than the images- I didn't even think possible. Along with Pollaro's furniture this year at the Oscars, design for the Greenroom will be created by acclaimed Los Angeles designer Waldo Fernandez. How glamorous it will be, as his designs are influenced by the 1930s and 40s hollywood era. Below are four of the eleven pieces from Pollaro's collection which will be used at this year's 84th annual Academy Awards.
