Draper Mirror
Ah, Dorothy Draper, with your white on white, tongue in cheek Palm Beach Aesthetic, “decorating can be fun?  And what can be more “fun  than a delightfully simple braided bark mirror? Indoors or out, Laura Spector's 34  round Draper wall mirror is a whimsical and durable confection suitable for any décor. Shown in our favorite glossy and glamorous Dorothy Draper white, the mirror is fabulously dramatic in a glossy black finish, opulent in gold or silver leaf and wonderfully woodsy in our signature rustic finish. The mirror, like all pieces from the new Laura Spector Collection, is made from molds taken from oriental bittersweet vines, then cast in metal and re-imagined by the artist so that each piece is slightly unique.
Laura Spector Rustic Design
Laura Spector is a designer and builder of rustic furnishings. Inspired by nature, and raised by a very French mother, she creates whimsical, one of a kind furnishings in the 18th Century, European Romantic tradition. According to Barbara Israel, author and consultant to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, “Laura is the only contemporary artist working in this medium. She has mastered the technique of the uninterrupted line, creating works of classical symmetry from natural forms.” Light in spirit, rich in detail, she likes to explore the connection between nature and the decorative arts. “I love to blur the line between rustic and refined and am always amazed at how easily my source material lends itself to that exchange.” From English wrought ironwork to French boisserie, her furnishings suggest nature with a nod to history. Hmmm... Isn't that Sting posing on a Laura Spector bench on the cover of INTERVIEW MAGAZINE? Oh, I see they used Cindy Crawford as a prop for Laura's recent “What Becomes a Legend Most” campaign. Her work has been featured in The NEW YORK TIMES, HOUSE & GARDEN, INTERIOR DESIGN, OPRAH, and ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN as well as several books on rustic and garden design. Ever the fashionista, her work has been commissioned by Bergdorf Goodman, Macy*s, Catherine Malendrino, Mario Testino and the new Dallas “W Hotel.” While we can all be invited to the homes of Joan Baez, Don Imus and Phil Donahue, why not book a suite at The lake Placid Lodge stopping for lunch at Grounds for Sculpture on the way?
