The wonderful Websters

Last week I had the pleasure of spending both breakfast and dinner with the Websters.  Get your head out of the gutter, and I'll explain.  The morning was spent sitting on a Designer Roundtable discussing the rise and fall and hopefully the re-rise of our industry (but I've been sworn to secrecy about the details), and the evening was spent celebrating the results of the previous conversation while enjoying their newly designed model unit for the W Residences in Boston.  And, when I say "their" newly designed unit, yes, I mean Webster & Company, the high-end, luxury showroom from the Boston Design Center, designed it - on their own...

With over seventy vendors to choose from, it's understandable that it looked the way it did.  Rose Tarlow/Melrose House, Charles Pollack, Phillip Jefferies, de Gournay, Jim Thompson, Holly Hunt, Vaughan and Chameleon Lighting are sumptuously appointed about the 2.5 bedroom unit.  Coupled with the sophisticated high gloss custom molding, built-in cabinetry, and beautifully crafted draperies, it's a wonder why they aren't offering interior design work as a service. 

But then again, it could be why he's laughing...
