Toby Worthington passed on a message from The Devoted Classicist that the latter's former colleague at Parish-Hadley, Bunny Williams was opening a showroom in Bangkok. I am indebted to Toby for the witty title for my post, and to John Tackett, (aka The Devoted Classicist) for the heads up.
I contacted the marketing office in New York suggested by The Devoted Classicist and discovered the details about the showroom location here in Bangkok. The co-ordinator in Bangkok turns out to be someone I knew well from another upmarket brand store here, and with whom I worked briefly a few years ago.
The timing of the news was very adjacent to the opening, and I received an invitation to both the official event and a masterclass to be given by both Bunny Williams and Kathryn Ireland, who was also opening within the same showroom.
Sadly and much to my regret, these events took place on Monday, when I was otherwise engaged with recovery from a tiresome bout of sickness, which left my charm-ometer rather depleted. I did however manage to get over to the showroom yesterday, and devoid of people, it was a much better chance to see the lines up close and personal. The shop assistant very kindly took these pictures for me on his iPhone and subsequently emailed them to me. Thank you Khun Noom, of DM Home, (which also showcases inter alia Ralph Lauren Home, Armani Casa and Kindel).
Of the pieces I saw, I was much taken with the Star Chair:
details of which are available on the Bunny Williams Home site. It's not that I feel the need for a mini throne fit for a queen bee, but rather that I admire its reference to the Regency style.
