The legendary furniture maker Karl Springer was known for his modernist pieces produced with exotic finishes like parchment, python, and shagreen. Springer’s business flourished with the help of patrons like the Duchess of Windsor and her rarified circle of friends. The Duchess had the same telephone table I’m featuring here only in a slightly shorter size – A terribly useful table especially when in need of a suitable support for your solid state MacBook Air and dog-eared copy of the Kama Sutra – a set of casters make these tables ultra mobile too. Matthews & Parker Ltd. are carrying on the Karl Springer legacy using the same workrooms that Springer used and are making these gorgeously high quality pieces with exacting attention to detail – so it is not surprising that they continue to attract a jet set clientele from around the world. Want to feel like a Duchess? -these outrageous python phone tables are available at the super chic Hinson & Co showroom (979 Third Avenue NYC 212-688-5538).

I’m on the terrace of Hinson & Co. wearing a dove grey cotton three button jacket by Gucci, Charvet Paris mint green silk pocket square and a white, gray and mint cotton striped shirt with contrast colar and cuffs, Seaman Schepps cufflinks are shell with multi colored coral beads, white skinny jeans by Diesel, silver chain link belt and white leather bag both by Gucci, Dior silver leather sneakers and glasses.

Every detail of a project is important to me. Each selection needs to strengthen the point of view I’ve established for a room. Even a floor lamp becomes a vital part of the total composition. Here I am at the very stylish Hinson showroom ( Hinson & Co. 979 Third Avenue, NYC 212.688.5538 ) with one of my favorite silver art moderne floor lamps. This piece with it’s silver drum shade will chic up any space!

I am wearing a navy velvet jacket by Gucci, Battistoni white and navy polka dot pocket square, Tom Ford blue cotton shirt with contrast collar, Seamen Schepps silver pearl with pale blue sapphire cufflinks, Paper Denim jeans with navy leather belt with a silver buckle by Hermes, Gucci navy blue leather slip on shoes, and a black leather tote bag by Gucci.
