New York & Scalamandré

I am headed up to NYC for a few days next week, and although I have some events already on the calendar, I am looking for things to do, people to meet, places to go!

The main reason I am going is that I will be attending the premiere of the Scalamandré’s new line of tabletop, including china, glassware and cutlery, with Lenox, and the 2013 Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse. imageAs part of the launch, several decorators are creating windows featuring each of the lines of china.

Bunny Williams has decorated her window with Toile Tales, a fanciful Chinoisierie landscape of enchanting flowers, fretwork, figures, pagodas and parasols. imageHere’s Charlotte Moss’s window, using Bouvier, imagea favorite of Jackie Kennedy adapted from a superb 18th century French design.image

The other patterns are the iconic Zebras that once graced the walls of Gino's restaurant in New York City;image the perennially fresh Love Birds, one of Scalamandré's earliest and most beloved reproduction fabrics;image and Stravagante, a hyper lush, ravishingly drawn Italian Baroque still life design. imageAnd the other window designers are Jamie Drake, Kathryn Ireland and Richard Mishaan.

Dear Connor’s dog-walker is taking care of him and he’ll be so excited about that, he’ll hardly miss me!
