Once we got into the store camera crews were interviewing people and following us around shopping. We just knew this would be our big break and yes we made our film debut! If you look closely that is Hooper's arm on the right of this shot. And I'm just to the right of her. Her lace shirt arm aired on the 6 o'clock news... We're famous!!
Did I mention we are not big on competition? While all the other designers were running around putting orange stickers on the items they wanted to use in their spaces we were stumbling around trying to find something...anything. I had picked up an acrylic shelf that was scratched and Hooper had broken out in hives and was contemplating taking a xanax.
Then it happened... we heard a rolling cart behind us and turned to see the back of a double dresser rolling by us. Hooper grabbed my arm and gasped...does that say Henredon? We raced to the piece armed with our orange sticker and slapped it on. Swoon... we were standing in front of the most gorgeous mid century double dresser complete with brass and wood knobs. We heard another cart only to see the matching nightstands rolling our way... Score. By this point other designers had discovered our finds and were milling around. Though I do not like competition I can get competitive. I asked the rolling cart guy to guard our stuff while we got more stickers. All said and done we scored several pieces of Henredon that became a game changer for our room plan.
