|Me with Jennifer Lee of Sotheby's Institute.|
Thursday evening's Young Collector's Night at the Winter Antiques Show was quite an affair! The Show was packed with a stylish antique and art dealers, decorators, and design aficionados. The event was partly sponsored by an elite Design Committee which included several of my favorite decorators, a few of whom shared their top picks from the Show:
|18th Century Indian painted-and-dyed |
cotton panel pattern of exotic
floral and flowering vases
from Cora Ginsburg.
|Rustic Armchairs of tree branches, |
twigs and birch root.
American, Adirondack region
From Hirschl & Adler.
|Josef Frank for |
Svenskt Tenn, circa 1940.
I highly regard Timothy Whealon's knowledge of and taste for antiques. Whealon said this vintage cabinet "has the impact of a piece of fine art" and could stand alone in any room.
Miles Redd says the painted legs lend a lightness to this framed sofa which he would use "in a bedroom or in a living room with multiple seating arrangements."
|Maison Jansen Monumental scalloped-back settee. French circa 1935. From Liz O'Brien.|
