Step Into My Office


I have had many questions about this image of my study from AD.  The back wall was constructed from two pairs of doors and paneling from a manor house in Somerset.  Behind the doors are all the modern necessities such as office supplies, a printer, filing cabinets, etc.  The shades are made from fabric by Rogers & Goffigon. The windows are mahogany with leaded glass. The floors are quarter sawn English oak.  I can really spread out my projects on the early 19th century partners desk from England. The clock is also from England.  The Regency table has an inlayed marble top.  The arm-chair beside it is 18th century from France proudly adorned with a cushion my mother needlepointed.  The two chairs at the desk are both from England.  The landscape painting is 18th century and I was lucky to find it on one of my buying trips as it is the lakeside village my paternal ancestors lived. Dominique Vorillon really captured the ambiance of this room with the morning sun.
