Timeless

TL

Truly, timeless. A dinner service that is both classic and colorful – one that has stood the test of time literally for centuries. Shown left, with our lemon hand-emboidered linens and 19th century Christofle and Williams and Brook flatware, Mottahedeh’s Tobacco Leaf is a fully licensed pattern that Mottahedeh produces from pieces in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This extravagant design was originally made in China, probably for export to the Portuguese and Brazilian… Continue reading

Yet another reason to like mayonnaise!

Homemade-Mayonnaise

Like we need one! This morning, I picked up my morning coffee cup and saucer and, “Hmm.” It was stuck to the table. The saucer was fresh from the dishwasher and, unbeknown to me, was still wet or at least damp on the underside when I set it down. It gave a gasp of struggle as I picked it up, but enough to make me look down and notice that some of the finish had been lifted from the area… Continue reading

QUALITY So, one day (the first week of July, 1980, to be exact), my dad brings my mom a cartoon by Dean Vietor clipped from the New Yorker, and says, “This is Bob!” A guy kneeling at his bed prays, ‘I don’t ask for much, but what I get should be of very good quality.’ Word. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by quality from an early age. My dad was Baker Furniture’s West Coast manufacturer’s rep, and as such, our… Continue reading

Sharing space

Library:dining

In tight spaces, there’s always room for multi-function. Under the deft hand of Madeline Stuart, a corner of a living room acts as a library-cum-intimate dining space (great table, a couple of interesting chairs, window bench seating- check!). And that Donald Kaufman color is crazy good!         (DKC-11 from Donald Kaufman)

WHY TABLETOP MATTERS

IMG_1584

Time together as a family around the table is good for everyone involved, and recent research has proved this. It’s this time that anchors families. It’s not the big holiday feasts once or twice a year, but the regular, reliable, shared meals that count. Shared meals send the message that citizenship in a family entails certain standards beyond individual whims. The power of this habit may not materialize immediately, but there will be a time when the family lingers at the table engrossed in a story… Continue reading

So, just who had the idea?!

300px-Marie-Antoinette,_1775_-_Musée_Antoine_Lécuyer2

Marie Antoinette may just have had the most recognizable décolletage in history, all thanks to the champagne coupe- that old-time glass shape said to be modeled after the ill-fated Queen’s breast (Which one- right or left? We’ll never know!). Like all cocktail accessories, the coupe is having a bit of a renaissance, thanks to Riedel, the 300 year old Austrian glass company. They’ve brought back the Veritas Coupe for you to enjoy your bubbly from- quite appropriate, since Marie was… Continue reading
