We have this fabulous pair of side tables by Tony Duquette. He painted his famous malachite finish over them in the late 70’s or early 80’s, and in some places he did not remove the ormolu, so there are some traces of his handy work on the gilded metal.
Tony was a legendary artist, decorator and designer who was originally discovered in the trade by Elsie de Wolfe who took Tony under her wing. He went on to create and design movie sets in Hollywood, and won a Tony Award for costumes he designed for “Camelot” on Broadway.
The size of each is 29-1/2: x 29-1/2″ x 30″ high.
I’ve started blogging more mostly because of my finally caving to the world of the iPhone when I lost my Blackberry about six weeks ago and discovered the WordPress app! It’s awesome and so much fun, so many times I’m out and about and want to write about something and then loose my mojo by the time I’m immersed with work back at my computer.
I took a photo of the shop today, finally with nice weather, a sign, and incredible tables by Tony Duquette I couldn’t resist sharing.
We’ve also finishes putting the Waterford chandelier together… I’ve ordered some super white wax sleeves with no drips to make it feel fresh… It’s so weird to me that Waterford would sell their lights with plastic candle sleeves.
We’re so happy to represent Sister Parish Design’s new home accessories collection. Currently we’re selling the waste basket for $80, dish for $20 and larger round tray for $65 and we ship anywhere. We’re so inspired bringing back old school pieces like this… LOVE…
Here we go!!! This has been in the back of the shop, it was disassembled in England and I was given the task to put it together and sell… John is here with me today to start the work with me. Dan the electrician may be coming by later to help wire up the arms… We’ll keep you posted. This is just the beginning, we have four more boxes to unpack, crazy!
Phase one completed… We can’t believe we just did this ourselves!
Phase three… We’ve hit a stand-still for the day because the electrician can’t come until tomorrow… We’re so proud of ourselves, it’s so empowering just to take a step back and take the time to figure something out, and we’ve had a great time along the way… This I where we are about 3 plus hours in:
We’ve just received a group of pillows made from Burmese silk produced by an old colleague in the business who has a wonderful company in New York called Imperio JP.
I know it’s a little early in the season, but these were just dropped off to my pleasant surprise and I couldn’t wait to share them. They are made from cut birch, painted and assembled by Ellen in Sonoma. We are so happy to have these one-of-a-kind Dutch Santas here! This is a set of Twelve (12) place holders is $65 for the set. We have other individual Santas here that are great for center piece decorations, mantels, side tables or entries! They are all individually made, so you will definitely not see these anywhere else, they are totally unique and made for Homme! You will have these forever! SOLD OUT
We just brought this up from our storage unit in LA. We love the legs, and the burl in the patchwork veneer. Vintage 1950’s. SOLD
We just got in this really beautiful blue wingtip that’s still wired and can be plugged into a lantern battery for illumination. Please call 415 400 4299 or email us for more information. It’s a great gift for someone who’s into design, or airplanes… would also be a really cute full-size headboard.
