i’m heading to high point, north carolina today for the spring 2017 furniture market. i will be setting up my henredon collection in the showroom and presenting it to the buyers and editors during market. we are not launching anything new, but we sure are creating a beautiful presentation.
pauline de rothschild’s style and homes was a great source of inspiration for my set up. there will be a cobalt blue velvet lifestyle reminiscent of pauline’s blue velvet library at chateau mouton and there will be plenty of chinoiserie and surprise, surprise, lot’s of stripes.
here are some images of pauline’s homes in london and paris. her london drawing room was sensation, the chinoiserie clad columns, checked cushions and striped louis XVI chairs were swoon worthy and who cannot be moved by her paris apartment’s salon and bedroom, both in 18th century chinoiserie wallpaper.
believe it or not, pauline’s spaces were a bit spare, the drama was in the details and beauty of the pieces. pauline was so chic and so stylish, an icon on so many levels and for me a great source of delight and inspiration. how could i not be moved by someone who loved chinoiserie and stripes as much as i do.
