'Exquisite Pleasures'

image1Drooled over this piece in The New York Times Style Magazine over the weekend that captures the life of Ian and Emilie Irving, a couple mad for art, design & one another. They met through the world of collecting and a chance encounter. The piece profiles their home in Springs, in East Hampton, a jewel box of a cottage full of Napolean III velvet chairs, 19th-century textiles from Iran, floral vintage chintz fabrics and my favorite piece - a French Directoire chair still covered in original Ikat upholstery from Matthieu Monluc in Paris. Read more about their fanciful home & romance, here.
