A Very, Very Exciting Day...

A couple weeks back, The New York Times Home section asked me and six other design bloggers to submit our favorite new pieces for fall -- and the story appears today!  I cannot imagine the logistics that reporter Penelope Green and photo editor Sara Barrett (and photographer Lars Klove) had to contend with to get this done.  What a thrill for me to be included in this bunch.  And what a fantastic - yet tough - assignment.  It's quite hard to find brand new, unpublished items (especially as an antiquephile).  I'll share some of my other discoveries later on today.  Many, many thanks to Penelope and all the great artisans and designers who worked with me on this. What a day!

  1. Hi Hollister - I was reading the NY Times today, saw your name, and it rang a bell... though I don't think we ever met at W&L, I wish we had! I've just starting blogging about furniture that I find in the streets here in Madrid and (try to find time to) fix up.

    I love old anything, and I'm going to start reading your blog faithfully.
