Today, as I was driving by McL-W, I pulled over to take some photos of the newest window and ran into David, and his partner and my old friend, Bug, who is the Simon Doonan of Jos. A. Banks Clothiers. David and Bug were kind enough to let me come in and take some photos of his work.
Although he's based in Baltimore, David's work is available in showrooms across the country including Summer Hill, Ltd, in New York, Chicago and San Francisco, Ainsworth Noah in Atlanta, and the Rist Corp. at the Design Center in Washington, DC.
This was the window display last week with a better photograph of the campaign bed David designed for his daughter, as well as a chandelier he designed for her.
Here are some of my favourite pieces that were in McLain Wiesand's showroom this afternoon. In addition to his own work, David also has a small selection of antiques. Take a look:
A shagreen side table
One of a pair of Chinoiserie-style table lamps
Several klismos-style chairs designed by McLain Wiesand
A selection of heads, including David's signature Medusa heads.
Two Baltimore Chairs, the left one is in progress and the right one is nearly complete.
A beautiful turquoise lamp base with a coral motif.
Bug & David... thanks for sharing your shop with me this afternoon. Always a treat to see you!
