Design Show Opening

Posted on: May 16th, 2011by wilsonkelsey 2 Comments

Another design show opening – this one in Wenham, Mass. A lovely, quaint, quintessential New England Town, with a town green and a monument. If you haven’t been there, you need to go. As cities build up around us, this is a haven to rest your mind and raise your children. Horses scamper and lawns go on forever.

The Wenham Museum preserves north shore history, and their annual fund raiser is a Design Show, which for the past two years has featured us among their designers. We had a wonderful Gala opening last week, and here is a casual shot, showing you what our space looks like. We look forward to our professional photo shoot, coming up with Eric Roth.

As John previously told you, we were inspired this year by the movie, Julie and Julia, because of the power of food and personal connections. Use parties as a way to further your personal interactions. We designed a modern dining room, complete with checkerboard wood panelling, painted in high gloss, provided by the great South Shore Millwork. See what you think:

Here is our contemporary china that we found from Lux Bond & Green in Boston, from Bernardaud/Limoges. Thank you, Lux Bond & Green, for loaning such beautiful china to this exhibit.

Ready to party in style. Fabulous porcelain, and a fabulous 1930′s era chrome bar cart, loaned generously by Gurari Collections in Boston. What a fine eye owner, Russ Gerard, has! If you haven’t been there, you need to go!

Thank you also, to Trianon Antiques, for the gorgeous marble fireplace surround/mantel, Lisa Cueman Photography for the fabulous equine photo, loaned curtesy of Lisa and Iris Gallery in Boston, Jacqui Becker Fine Arts and Susan Schwalb for loaning 2 silverpoint pieces, Arthur Bauman and Mill Brook Gallery for the incredible mobile above the table, Mitchell Gold Furniture for the dining ensemble, and the Martin Group for loaning console and mirror. Landry & Arcari rugs provided the white carpeting, with Sally’s piano curve exectued to perfection. Thank you, Jay! More pictures to follow. I’m sure they’ll be more impressive than my attempts with the digital camera!  Until then, Go To The Show,  open only until May 22nd. See Wenham Museum.org.

For us, it’s a little bit like birthing a baby. Lots of Joy, but no lifetime committment.

Sally Wilson, ASID

  2. [...] Lisa, and Iris Gallery, graciously offered to loan us a piece, but frankly I was hard pressed to pick just one. Here I would like to show you all of our final picks. I would have been happy to feature any one of them in the show. John selected On the Run, and I said to myself, “John can have any one that he wants. I love them all.” So Lisa was wonderful enough to have the very first print made of On the Run, and you see it in our design show here. [...]
