I wish I could remember to photograph the whirl of ever changing vignettes in the shop. I move too quickly sometimes. I've always been a re-arranger. I was brought up that way. Every few months my Mom would say, "I think we'll re-arrange the furniture. You grab that end and I'll grab this end..." In fact, when the people from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine phoned to say they wanted to come and photograph my living room, it had been through three incarnations since the version that they saw. I had to reclaim all of the pieces from around the house and conjure up the look that they saw, on short notice!
I think people who get into designing interiors all have that in common. The desire to make things new again. It's how we get our recreation...through recreating. And for myself, I'm constantly dreaming of living in a new and different place and I think that when you're able to manipulate your environment it satisfies some of that wanderlust.
Anyway, I thought I'd share these glimpses of where I've been these days...at the shop.
And lastly, a chair of a different breed. In fact, it's labeled Mr. Chair. It was designed by George Mulhauser for Plycraft Inc. (mid century). Behind it is a rare Japanese Tsuitate screen that would have been used in the entryway of a temple (circa 1910).
