An absolutely stunning Tommi Parzinger dining table. Barbara thought it would look great in my dining room. Except she sold it. Before she even had a chance to call me. I totally understand. A willing bird in the hand is worth more than a flighty bird in the carpool line. I went to visit it anyway, I mean, wonderful is wonderful, sold or not.
As I worked my way up the block I ran into Christopher, who asked, "Have you seen the table? I wanted it for myself." This was serious. So we all stood there together and ohhed and ahhhed.
And then I moved on. One has to. She did have a terrific collection of the silver and enamel Reed & Barton bowls that I can't seem to get enough of. Not too long ago, Louis, a reader, let me know these are not Alexander Calder as he and I had previously believed. I found out from lovely Louis; he, sadly, found out through the grouchy Calder Foundation. I still love them.
And the table, if it's piqued your interest, has a twin on 1st dibs as we speak. Click now, these are going fast.
