In the years since her death in 1993, there have been attempts to deify Doris Duke as a style icon.  Colorful she may have been, but for me, that ultimate refinement of eye just wasn’t there.  However, with all that lovely lolly, she did manage to pick up a few interesting things along the way.

—Like this bed, sold at the Christies auction of her effects at Duke Farms a few years back.  Wouldn’t mind having that in my inventory.  But, we’ve got some serious scale problems going on with the other stuff around it….and wouldn’t that chaise block the view of the fire in the Steuben glass framed fireplace?  Edit, edit, edit.
