My absolute favorite international, modern designer. Watch My Ranchburger for information on her work.


Jean-Louis Breaux, International Art Dealer. At My Ranchburger we have some wonderful art by French artists whom he represents.

Design Within Reach (DWR) Houston Studio held a Wine + Design event last evening. Leslie Williams, Certified Sommelier, presented a wonderful selection of wines from Christopher's Fine Wines (next door to DWR) for tasting. We felt right at home in DWR, as we have many of their iconic pieces at My Ranchburger.

We met adorable Baby Toby and his parents (love their British accents.) Also, we were delighted to run into Anne and Jean-Louis Breux and catch up on their design and art endeavors (love their French accents.)

And Thank you, Tall Husband, for not buying another chair.

Update (9/01/08):
Christopher's Fine Wines has closed their River Oaks store and will reopen in Rice Village on 9/02/08.

  1. You know what? I was probably at these events, while you were there. Too bad we didn't know each other.
