For Amanda, the inspired design of the Carnegie was surprisingly close to home, literally. A striking embellished glass and metal door near her office on 5th Avenue in Manhattan had always attracted her eye in passing. Conceptually, it could not have been more perfect for her 10th Anniversary lantern design.
"One could walk by this same door hundreds of times and never notice it. You have to make yourself more aware and force yourself to see things in a different light." -- Amanda Nisbet
The brass accents and interaction of the metal and glass are very reminiscent of Amanda's signature design aesthetic. As with the other pieces in her collection, the Carnegie becomes integral to the room and the jewelry of the space.
