Events, Inspirations, The Latest Buzz

Spring Awakening

Last week, we attended the press event (along with Sue from The Zhush!) for Spring Awakening, a Broadway inspired table top show benefiting The Summer Theater of New Canaan.  Over twenty designers were invited to create beautiful settings based on Broadway shows, all under the roof of a spectacular 1937 home called Le Beau Chateau.

While each and every designer deserves his or her due (and many are profiled on The Zhush today), we wanted to share our dear friend Harry Heissmann‘s table with you – floral fantasy at its best!

If you want to replicate Harry’s look for yourselves, here are some of his fabulous sources:

Other (not readily available!) accessories included a Victorian shell basket under glass dome, vintage flatware and Vera napkins, and a Tony Duquette “Ghost Snail Lamp”.

Thank you, Harry, for awakening our imagination with this gorgeous table!

    That Glinka overlay, those unreal hurricanes and that snail! Oh my goodness, Harry did such a spectacular job! (and now I think I want those lilac colored glasses for myself!)

    Harry is a very talented designer and decorator whom we’ve had the pleasure of working with for a few years now. My father and I were thrilled that he took a risk on our new hurricanes and was the first to ever use them!
