Ken Fulk’s closet in November issue of Architectural Digest is the epitome of rich and eclectic design. He goes against the grain by utilizing antique bookcases and a brass clothing rack to replace the all to common closet kits of today. He embraces English details with a large antique box on stand hidden behind an unusual antler upholstered chair, these being reminiscent of the once popular royal hunts. So why not defy the expected and harness the old world culture by embracing antique furniture in order to diversify your own closet?

I just purchased a copy of Million Dollar DecoratorJeffrey Alan Marks‘ book ” The Meaning of Home” at his book signing at Harbinger last night. This is a must for your book collection. It is a refreshing and inspirational collection of images from his portfolio as well as thoughts about his creative process including shopping for antiques.
Needless to say his comfortable, fresh and informal style infused with English and European accents (many that come from my showroom) really resonated with me and I am sure it will with you!
