building abroad

Finally a design fair blog that is worth something-see the Design Miami/Basil blog and learn something about what's going on! Posts include this tid bit about the origin of the this chair. Made for the Duchess de Parma in the early 18th century it was acquired by Karl Lagerfeld for his atelier. Dealer Bill Pallot sold it to Lagerfeld then acquired it recently. The story includes the making of the chair with golden thread that has now changed to the color of silver.....modern furniture with fairy tales interspersed-my kind of blog.
