My “Show & Tell” on Cloth & Kind
I was honored to be featured on Cloth & Kind last week for their Show & Tell column. Be sure to follow these lovely ladies. They are so talented and share such a similar love for all textiles as I do.
SHOW & TELL: HOLLY PHILLIPS
This is my antique horn chair, which I purchased on a buying trip to Paris in the mid 1990’s when I was working at Travis and Company in charge of the antiques at ADAC. It was my first buying trip with the company. This chair was purchased after a long boozy lunch in the market. The owner of the set (yes it was part of a set…so wish we bought the loveseat too) said it came from a famous hair salon (Christophe…I think) in Paris that did Jackie O’s hair when she visited with Onassis. I was sold with the horn and leopard alone… then Jackie O thrown in. When it arrived to ADAC and we were unpacking I almost had a fist fight with another employee who also wanted it. I had dreamed of this baby ever since I saw it.
It makes me so happy and has traveled from house to house over the years. It now resides in my den.
I am an animal print fanatic. I know they can be misunderstood with so many bad examples but nothing can be more chic when done right.
