“I always find my best pieces in San Francisco”
-Jeffrey Alan Marks
It has become quite clear to all lovers of design where the new Tuesday night hot spot is—cozied up on the sofa hanging out with the chic set of designers who comprise Bravo’s television show Million Dollar Decorators: Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn Ireland, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald and Nathan Turner. The glamorous bunch allows us to salivate over their heavenly designs, while entertaining us with their witty personas.
This past week, our very own 2010 Fall Antiques Show played a leading role, when Jeffrey Alan Marks and partner Ross came in search of the perfect coffee table.
While attending the Designers Circle Pre-Preview Reception, they stopped by Therien, then visited epoca and found a rare John Dickinson African white plaster table. They stopped to chat with San Francisco’s very own “Grand Dame of interior design,” Suzanne Tucker. The next night at the Preview Party gala, Suzanne wanted the table for a client, but allowed Jeffrey and Ross to buy the piece for their own collection.
The San Francisco designer John Dickinson is known as “the most innovative and original American interior and furniture designer of the 20th century” and his creative genius is highly regarded in the world of design. Jeffrey describes him as “[setting] the tone for California style.” This white plaster coffee table, with its casual and whimsical aeshetic, perfectly illustrates that style.
We hope to see Million Dollar Decorators hunting for treasures at the Preview Party on October 26th!
