At the Show - Structures and Furniture

Bluette Meloney has been making out of the ordinary and diverse vignettes for more than 17 years. In years past, her work could be found on Shellie Kazan's table. This year, Bluette will have her own table. Her designs incorporate realistic faux finishes and trompe-l'oeil effects. She also hand-paints furniture and other accessories.
