In the Loop

 Sotheby’s recently auctioned two original pairs of Elkins Loop Chairs circa 1934.

Frances Elkins designed the chair in the 1930’s and the repros have been quite popular ever since.

Celerie Kemble used them in a house in Palm Beach.

I had the opportunity to hear Charlotte Moss speak on her sources of design inspiration last Thursday. I will be posting a recap on it soon. Pickard carries this china pattern that Moss designed called “Elsie”. It was inspired by Elsie de Wolfe and her love of treillage.
