After recently writing about the fabulous new Tilton Fenwick fabric collection for Duralee, I was delighted to see partner Suysel de Pedro Cunningham’s beautiful bedroom, fully outfitted in the collection, featured in this month’s Traditional Home.
Their signature pattern, Rocat, on the headboard, anchors the scheme and shows how successfully it mixes with the other fabrics for a fresh and updated traditional look. And I love how the bold Leontine linens add a great graphic punch. But the best surprise was seeing a nice shout out for me and Quintessence (the fabric and the site). A big thank you to Traditional Home, Ann Maine and Tori Mellott – much appreciated!
Perusing the issue, I came across several terrific additional finds. I had been lusting after these campaign stools from the Michael Inchbald auction at Christie’s
and was happy to read that Windsor Smith has designed a version of a Savonarola chair with a similar feel, coming soon.
I’m hoping I’ll have time to preview the Dogs in Show and Field auction at Bonhams on February 12. For dog owners in the city, you may want to consider Barkfast on February 9th, a charity Sunday brunch for you and your pooch at the auction house, benefitting the American Kennel Club humane fund.
And I loved Alessandra Branca‘s picks to celebrate her signature red, from Bunny Williams Home’s red lacquer Ohm mirror to Lillian August’s Karl Door cabinet for Hickory White. It’s Traditional Home’s 25th anniversary so I’m sure they’ll be celebrating all year long with great projects and market finds.
Be sure to stop by tomorrow (Tuesday) when Susanna and I debut a special video feature shot in Paris just in time for the shows. See you then!
