The Duchess Desires . . .

Herve van der Straeten

Poking around on Pinterest this morning, I came across a familiar interior designed by Sara Story (methinks) published in Elle Decor.  The design features a pendant by renowned French jewelry, furniture and lighting designer Herve van der Straeten.  This got the Duchess to thinking that she needs a bit of van der Straeten in her own life, and where else to procure same besides Maison GerardPick up a piece or two, or three . . .
