A Very Small Place of One’s Own


“Metropolitan Vanities: The History of the Dressing Table” at the Metropolitan Museum is an exhibition that seeks to provide a view into the extensive history of the Dressing Table – from the Ancient to Modern, and a nod to today.

In addition to sharing some images from and thoughts about the exhibition, I want to share a few examples of these very personal spaces that I have designed for my clients.
