Looking for a dash of glam to spice up your abode?
Redecorating and on the prowl for 20th century delicacies?
Call Bonhams now for their sale catalog, ADVENTURES IN STYLE, Hamish Bowles and Gordon Watson, Tuesday, November 13 in New York.
An Ingo Maurer chandelier, etchings by Etienne Drian, velvet wingbacks by Jean-Charles Moreux, steel and rock crystal andirons by Paul Belvoir, Flatware by Puiforcat, watercolors by Joe Eula, a pair of wall appliques by Poillerat or Tom Dixon’s rice paper over metal star fixtures. and and and….
Hamish is a collector; we all are to SOME extent, but Hamish runs away with the prize, he’s been doing it as he says, “from infancy.”
In the pared down, constantly dieting world that we live in I find it totally refreshing to know someone (else!) who makes no apologies for loving beautiful objects, snatching them up, loving them for years then admitting at some point that you have, “…an obsession with accumulation” and decide to do the “greenest” thing any OCD Collector can do….recycle!

Good fortune perhaps one will land my way.
