English in the City

An historically-rich, magnificent manor is rejuventated with luxurious silks, hand-printed linens, European woven tapestries and fine antiques, creating a classic and elegant city home for living and entertaining.


Multicolored stripe silk slipcovers bring an elegant feel to a formal Dining Room.


An antique bench re-done in an English fabric with hydrangeas on plaid and placed symmetrically under an antique mirror with gold-leaf frame, creates a warm, elegant welcome to this city home.


A bold blue and white stripe tablecloth done in a tailored kick-pleat style makes a big design statement without being overdone.


Simple touches such as an English floral fabric for pillows and a yellow woven trellis fabric for the tablecloth can completely transform a room.


English linen floral draperies and pillows, brushed cotton slipcovers, and a European tapestry fabric upholstered on an antique iron bench.


A 19th Century Chinese Bamboo desk, a new Aubusson pillow on an overstuffed chair upholstered in dark green mohair fabric, and English floral fabric for the draperies illustrate how pattern and texture work together to create pleasing effects.
