> Mid Century Madness and a Darling French Sideboard

Beautifully remastered lounge chairs with new foam fills, new upholstery and a great new shine. Original designer Kofod Larsen c.1960s.

I want it! I want it! I want it!

Refinished credenza/sideboard featuring beautiful walnut wood grain, smart sexy base, and groovy Tambour doors. A Mid Century master piece!

I love these multi-functional Drexel Stewart & MacDougall cabinets! Use them as end tables, nightstands, or put them together and they become a beautiful sideboard or credenza.

And one Darling French Sideboard. For all my Mid Century love, I can’t resist a beautifully feminine Frenchy.

>The Art of Storage

Composition on the wall, who’s the fares of them all? 
Whether closed boxes or open shelving storage has become an art form.

designed by Eric Pfeiffer. Retailing for $650.

designed by: unknown. Retailing for $240
designed by Rodolfo Dordoni. Retailing for $2816.

designed by Rakks.

Rakks is a favorite of mine!!!  A made-to-order shelving system with beautiful brackets and rods that are supported by rails. You can also hide the rails in the wall during construction for a cleaner look.
I’ve recently ordered 3 closets and a laundry room worth of Rakks for around $1200 or about $300 per room… Stay tuned for pictures…

>A perfect Sunday brunch: Eggs Florentine with Asparagus 

Eggs Florentine consists of poached eggs, Hollandaise sauce, steamed spinach, and usually an English muffin although I think next time I’m going to try it with sliced French bread.
The following is a quick and fool-proof way to make a decadent Hollandaise sauce that is sure to impress!

First:
In a sauce pan melt1.5 sticks butter

Second:
In a blender add
4 room temperature egg yokes
the juice of 1 1/2 lemons
1-2 pinches of Cheyenne pepper

while blending:
slowly pour in the melted butter
and add salt and pepper to taste

Now just drizzle atop your poached egg, and spinach and don’t for get the grilled asparagus! YUM!!
Hollandaise is great with asparagus, grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, seared fish, and anything egg. Be creative with your sauce and let me know what you do with it!

Enjoy!
