This coffee table is a conversation piece in itself, with gorgeous Ash heartwood (hand-sanded to reveal its rich beauty) atop industrial-chic steel legs. I’ve named it for Dorothy Parker, whose brilliant conversation and steely wit charmed (and frightened) generations in New York and Hollywood.
Dorothy was a poet, writer, critic and satirist, known for her witty wisecracks, including biting critiques of society. “The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue,” she said. She wrote for Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, then moved to Hollywood and was one of the (Oscar-nominated) writers of the screenplay for 1937’s A Star is Born – before the Judy Garland, Streisand and Lady Gaga versions. She became involved in the movement for civil liberties and civil rights, and was blacklisted during the McCarthy era, along with many other creatives.
