The masters of chic furniture, Frederick P. Victoria and Son
, Inc. hosted an intimate cocktail party in their eastside showroom recently to present their newest additions. The family owned company is now run by the son and grandson of the founder, Frederick Victoria, and is the destination to go to for iconic furniture. Their portfolio of historic pieces reads like a who's who of twentieth century designers and beau monde: Elise de Wolfe, Billy Baldwin and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to name just a few.

The evening's highlight for me was the newest version of the Elsie de Wolfe biscuit stand in an updated silver finish. It is a piece to swoon over - graceful and sculptural with the de Wolfe pedigree to boot!
The original that de Wolfe was mad for.
One of several English Aesthetic Movement pieces that just arrived from across the pond.
