STORIED LOOT: Curated with Style and Spirit
STORIED LOOT: Curated with Style & Spirit
Design-inspired adventures in lands near and far make for interesting stories and a life well-lived! I love travel to exotic places, and wandering off the beaten path to find hidden treasures. I look for unusual pieces of art and home furnishings spanning the 19th-21st centuries that have a history -- and when I am lucky, even a provenance. I believe we all feel most settled in our homes, large or small, when they’re filled with special things that feed our souls and create beautiful backdrops for the stories of our lives… If you’re adventurous as I am, and one who shies away from the latest design fads in favor of timeless pieces with true style and spirit, I’d love for you to follow me here! And also, please look for my forthcoming sites on Instagram and Pinterest. Details found here just after the New Year. Thank you!


Great statement piece that I found in an Austin book lover's private library! This would also work beautifully on a study desk or even on the kitchen counter for a chic way to read recipes. This piece is well weighted and functional with a wrapped leather handle. The arm holding the magnifier moves up and down easily, and also rotates from side to side. The 'Old Brass' has a depth of color and a soft luster patina. There is a bit of spotting on the base which adds authenticity, but appears to be topical and cleanable with a good brass polish.
