Alberto's Champignons and Anna's Forest Mushrooms
What do you get when you cross the two most talented, hand-painted porcelain designers (featuring their famous mushrooms) in the world? A very good mushroom trip. That happened to me today while perusing the 8th floor at Barneys and came across the breathtaking tablescape you see above. Anna Weatherley and Alberto Pinto have really done it in creating this limited edition of each designer's mushroom. The rich colors and painted details with pillows to match, truly make it a work of art. I would take this over any piece of artwork in the world. It's no wonder that Anna's designs are featured in the private quarters of the White House.
