Many of you are familiar with designer Lou Zeldis who splits his time between Indonesia and Santa Monica. I was lucky enough to meet Lou at the Tucson show four years ago. Today we got lucky again with a visit to his home and showroom in the center of Ubud.
Lou’s imagination and the artist’s talents make quite a team producing unique products not seen anywhere else. Walking into Lou’s home is more on the lines of the back room of a museum. There is so much to look at and dig through. Sensory overload short-circuits any budget you have proposed for yourself!
Many hours later we took a break for lunch and went to an Italian restaurant called the Black Beach. You must climb up 3 flights of stairs to get to this rooftop gem which overlooks the entire center of Ubud. The bar on the second floor has a black sand floor. Lou mentioned you could always tell when the bar has a good night as the black sand gets tracked up and down the streets!
