The more theatrical aspects of this year's San Francisco Decorator Showcase are discussed by Carol Lloyd in the San Francisco Chronicle.
For this showcase I designed the Lift, more than just a personal elevator, this carriage was custom built to my specifications of solid cherry, and its raised mouldings parcel gilt in 23 karat gold. I painted three large scale portraits of eyes to add a surreal element. People entering the lift are either rapt or disquieted.
