A Spectacular Find

One can create heightened drama in an interior through the use of floor to ceiling paneling – perhaps made from fine and exotic woods – a pale blue sapphire or smoky topaz mirror can also be employed to great effect. Shown here is a truly exceptional variation on this idea – a wall of thirty-six textured glass silver backed panels in reds, yellows, golds and greens all conspire to make the most spectacular impression. Created by Vol St. Lambert for a 1948 apartment in Brussels, this would be the perfect wall piece to enliven a private elevator landing or entrance gallery. As you can imagine I was thrilled to find this at the sensational Galerie Van den Akker. They always have an excellent collection of the most beautiful and unusual 20th century furniture and they always have new finds to be seen – It is well worth stopping by there often.

I’m wearing a dusty rose suede safari jacket, an ivory cashmere turtleneck sweater, sand colored corduroy pants, brown suede loafers with pink suede trim, brown suede and leather satchel, all by Gucci with Dior sunglasses.
