Bemusedly Baldwin...

I just sat down to read January's House Beautiful on this oddly warm late December afternoon, and came across a spotlight on the Billy Baldwin Collection by Ventry Ltd. I almost dropped my glass of wine with excitement...almost. I quickly jumped online to find Ventry Ltd. and see what this was all about. Sadly, it's an underwhelming site with decidedly underwhelming product. I'm thrilled about the idea, I'm even excited that this product is being manufactured by a lesser known company (lesser known to me at least). I did however find a few beautiful things. This post isn't about the great Billy Baldwin, and I certainly have nothing negative to say about him. It's simply my review of Ventry Ltd.

What a GREAT lamp!

This table is pretty amazing. Technically it's a dining table, but what a stunning center table it would make!

Not generally my taste, I'd love to use this in a moderne man's lounge paired with really worn in leather wing chairs.


  1. those are all pretty fabulous -especially that table! the base must be iron?

  2. Billy Baldwin was a genius. If you have aspirations of becoming a decorator then I suggest getting hold of a copy of his autobiography. It’s filled with scandal, socialites and fine French furniture hunting. I’ve simply read mine to pieces.

    Keep up the good work and I enjoy seeing pictures of your progress and collections.
