Swedish Splendor

My fine antique dealer friends have an uncommon eye for extraordinary pieces – really I consider them on par with world class museum curators. My friends at H. M. Luther are no exception. I love this Swedish mahogany eight leg dining table by Nordiska Komponiet; It would be perfect in a rectangular dining room or in an entrance gallery/library as a book table. On the table is a beautiful collection of Swedish porphyry containers. Porphyry became one of the sought after Roman royal stones of choice two millennia ago, and its rich aubergine hue and unusual crystalline structure continues to compliment any room with imperial flair!

I am seated on one of a set of four Swedish Grace Period zebra wood and ebonized birch dining chairs. I am wearing a dazzling metallic silver down parka by Ralph Lauren (a remnant from my days as an interior designer at Ralph Lauren), gray cashmere turtleneck and black wool flannel pants by Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent black leather “Windsor” loafers, black leather tote by Gucci, and red leather gloves by Sermoneta to add a pop of color.
