FP Victoria on Park Opening

Here are some photos from the opening evening at our pop-up installation at The Silver Peacock last week. The pop-up is a collaboration between FPV and The Silver Peacock, so most of the furniture you see is ours, while most of the objects and linens are from The Silver Peacock. With all the pieces we brought in and the abundance of items already there, the whole effort could have easily fallen into chaos. But we were very fortunate to have the talented Christopher Boshears's eye to style and edit the space so harmoniously - not an easy task!

We promise to post more images, and perhaps a video, of the space itself soon! In the meantime, please come by and visit it for yourself if you are in town. The Silver Peacock is located at 1110 Park Avenue, between 89th & 90th streets, 212.426.2610.

  1. Welcome back to the world of blogging! It was good to see that Mr Dwork, one of my all-time favourite decorators, is alive and well.

  2. What a great gathering of decorating talent. Thankfully, a couple that I thought were no longer with us were able to make an appearance! __ The Devoted Classicist

  3. Thank you Blue - and apologies, it has indeed been a while since I have posted. Can I pass it off as wanting to be sure to have interesting content? Probably not! I will be sure to be more regular with our posts now that the pop-up is up and running. Mr. Dwork is a very talented, kind man who it seems has managed to stay "under the radar" despite this talent. Some of his work in the '80s was so ahead of its time, including works by Bertoia who is so popular now. My father gave a speech about his career recently at the Museum of the City of NY, which I videoed. I think it didn't come out very well, but if it's salvageable I will post it. Thanks Blue!

  4. Thank you Mr. Tackett - I feel the same way. The experience that they can share is under-valued!
    Thank you!
