"The best design has a story, a history, a legacy. Mom always found pieces for our home or a party that carried with them the memory of days gone by. I am always on the hunt for things that have a story to tell—sometimes my story, but just as often, the story of someone else. I have an old dinner table used in St. Helena by the British regiment that guarded Napoleon during his final exile in the South Atlantic. It later made its way to Cape Town, and from there back to London. Now it sits in my dining room in New York City. I wonder about the many suppers enjoyed and secrets shared around this old table, and about the ones yet to come." —Bronson van Wyck
