I met with potential clients recently that a} were delightful and b} have a truly fantastic space to work with.  There is a little bench just inside the front stairs with the most surprising leg.  Turned into a bulbous sphere at the top and then tapered down to a teensy little thing at the bottom.  I had never seen anything like it.
Then, of course, as always happens, I see another one.  
Sorry House Beautiful, June of ’03, but the legs in the foyer were even better.  Meanwhile, loving the wallpaper/fabric.  And I am always a fan of black and white (and grey is allowed).
