“In the early ‘80s, there were no restaurants to speak of.
People ate at the golf club, or at home, or badly.
We bought a farm there and I started a jour fixe, to bring kindred spirits together. The evenings at our house became fantastic. People performed acts of bravura, recited poems in their mother tongue, sang, played instruments, danced folk dances, fiddled while unicycling, that sort of thing.”
-Beatrix Ost


The ASTIER DE VILLATTE “Peggy” 2-tier bowl is paired with the “Happy” mug and the “Skull” saucer, both by ASTIER DE VILLATTE by John Derian.

The DU LONG ET DU LÉ Vintage Kilim rug is furnished with an ASTIER DE VILLATTE 2-tier “Adelaide” small cake pedestal containing NATHALIE LÉTÉ ceramic eyeballs.
