This past Friday I was in Dallas for the day to meet with Wisteria, the home furnishings catalogue whose point of view is so similar to mine. Since the catalogue first came out, I’ve always felt a great connection with their style and what they offer. In fact, many of the things I’ve seen in the catalogue are things that I’ve seen in my travels and bought for my shop, VW Home. To me it has the most stylish collection of goods in the marketplace. I’ve used it in many of my jobs and most people cannot tell the difference between their merchandise and high-ticket items.

So by coincidence, I was at the Orchid Dinner, sitting next to Lisa Newsom (Editor-in-Chief of Veranda Magazine) and it turned out that her son owns Wisteria, which prompted me to say that I’d like to design a collection for them of items inspired by pieces that I had found around the world. Hence my trip to Dallas.

Going through their inventory with the owners, there were so many items that I had admired or used in different jobs, it was truly a very pleasant experience. And to top the day, Laura Bush came in to shop while I was there! So we’ve started the negotiations to design for them. I will let you know what transpires, but I am very excited!
