Client had an important guest coming for a long weekend stay, and had temporarily furnished the eat-in kitchen in her new home with a metal table and chair set meant for outdoor dining.

She had been shopping for months, looking for a very nice but unusual kitchen table and chairs – something out of the ordinary. She also required new dishes, and table linens, and some decorative items for the great room. Time was running out, so she called me (long-distance) for advice.


I knew of a beautiful set at a nationwide store that would look fabulous with her existing colors and other furniture.

When she and her husband saw the set I had in mind, they were thrilled.

I also helped her pick colors for her dishes and accessories — all long-distance.

The family loves the new dining table and chairs in the eat-in kitchen, and they have moved the outdoor dining set on to the porch, where it looks fantastic.
