The Devil (not in Prada but maybe Michael Kors) & her Long Island Holiday Home

American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is rumoured to be quite the property queen. She's said to have a townhouse in Manhattan's historic Greenwich Village, houses in Connecticut as well as a house in Long Island (shown below). Here are sneak pics of Wintour's house exclusively shot by World of Interiors magazine.

On its own as a work of art in a spacious hall.  (*)

Lastly (and my favourite) as a bedhead. (*)

Not Your Ordinary Bench

During the reign of Louis XVI from 1774 to 1792, chairs were created just for ornamental reasons. Which bring us to the topic of a 3 or more seater long chair known as the bench. Now don't just look at a bench as an outdoor furniture or as a 3-seater that can occupy more than 3 people. The bench can be used...

As a substitute for dining chairs. (Well, imagine the sofa as a bench. Talk about quaint and quirky!)

At the bed front for an unexpected yet eclectic vibe.

Or on its own for seating or just as a prop. How cute right?

Love to have a bench in your home? The Vintage Parlour offers you two french style designs at an unbeatable price.

Regular French 3-Seat Bench W152xD45xH54 cm (SGD$550)
