GEORGE | FRIENDS WITH RATTAN

I lost my 88 year-old godfather George {on right, in Rome 1962} in March—I first wrote about him here. For the past several months, I've been sorting through miscellaneous papers from a box in his closet and I am finding little things of note, like this picture of a couple in a simple farmhouse. Though I do not know who these friends might be {familiar... famous, perhaps?}, I love the picture. And, I particularly love the chair—I have a thing for rattan. I prefer pieces of rattan as organic touches in fabric-filled rooms. Here, the beautifully curved chair is the coziest place to sit! There is quite a vast assortment of good rattan pieces from dealers on 1st dibs, including Franco Albini ottomans {I love}, delicate 19th-century English bamboo and rattan tables, and a lot more.

PS... More tidbits from George's closet to come.
