Just a Material Boy
I’ve never really thought of myself as an overly materialistic person, but, then again, I’ve never built my own house before. While shopping for clients, I now find myself looking for my house instead. I just can’t seem get over myself.
Two weeks ago, I was shopping with clients in Hudson. I had previously seen a settee from Vince Mulford and returned with clients to see it. They loved it and it will soon be in their Southport, Connecticut house. Walking down Warren Street, we detoured into Gris Antiques and found this beautiful 1970’s leather sofa. They were not so taken with the item as I was so we went elsewhere. Two weeks later, while in Hudson with architect Joan Chan, we just happened to stumble into Gris and there it was waiting for me. Almost out the door, I noticed a beautiful pair of 1940’s reading sconces and, as soon as Mitch is ready (hopefully some time this year), they will be beautifully ensconced (sorry) in Brokeback Manor.
In a long list of items needed to finish my house, a love seat and beautiful but semi- practical sconces are way down on the list.
