Meet the new dining/library table. It arrived last week, but because of the dingy weather, the natural light wasn’t right until yesterday for taking a photograph. Both the top and base were purchased through Culp Associates. This ingenious combination of a top by Gregorius | Pineo with a base designed by Ironies was Charley McKenney’s idea. Sometime in the next couple of weeks, I plan to play around with various table settings. And of course, I will photograph and share the arrangements with you.

A pair of tubby armchairs. That’s how 1stdibs had listed them when I first added them to my portfolio. Before all the restoration work, I had lived with a lot of traditional hand-me-downs and antique mall finds. In other words, my décor suffered greatly from the brown furniture syndrome in an out-of-date arts and crafts style. It was time to grow up in a timeless manner, since I no longer needed trendy objects to disguise a house that desperately needed structural updating. The key words that must apply to any new object chosen for my house are: timeless, integrity, functional, quality, quiet, sophisticated, and gracious.
