and I feel terrible about it. Things have just been so busy, but I've got a back-log of things I want to share and discuss, so to start tipping the scales in the right direction I thought I'd share this week's blog post from Thomas Jayne's Blog Decoration- Ancient & Modern
This week's post is about the Merchant's House Museum in the East Village. I visited this museum right before I moved to New York and fell in love with it...
I mean, Duncan Phyfe chairs covered in horse hair?
And a Chippendale mirror flanked by callalily gas sconces?
I think we all know by know that I have an affinity for drapery or tassels especially when rendered in materials other than fabric or thread. These 18th century French consoles are particularly beautiful and unusual.
Future husbands please note: if I don't already own these, don't waste your time on a ring.
I stumbled upon these fantastic 1970s gold and bronze glazed tiles in the 34th Street subway station. I hope when this subway is renovated in the next 20 years and these are removed I'll be in position to acquire them for whatever amazing property I'm inhabiting.
