The Find: Quinn-Essential Inspiration

One of the best things about a party created by Michael Quinn is the way he re-uses everything he owns to create an unforgettable tabletop. In this photograph by Jim Franco for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, And Vintage Details, Michael, along with festivity visionary Heather Kerr, modeled a welcoming bar scenario with of an abacus lamp, an anatomy class brain and an owl that was once used as part of a display in the windows of Henri Bendel.

Come visit me tomorrow as we take the first part of a video tour of Michael's unforgettable Carroll Cardens apartment. It's Quinn-Essential week here at The Elegant Thrifter!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
