Pick of the week

Country Life Every Week - - Art Market -

Pa­trick Jef­fer­son of the Pimlico Road is hold­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled ‘Rome Re­vis­ited’ of fur­ni­ture in­flu­enced by An­tiq­uity orig­i­nat­ing in Ir­ish houses, many ac­quired di­rectly from the houses or from the fam­i­lies to which they were sup­plied. It is good to be re­minded of the qual­ity of Mack, Wil­liams & Gibton, ‘famed for the in­di­vid­u­al­ity of their de­signs and use of the very finest avail­able tim­bers’. Items by or at­trib­uted to them in­clude a pair of Re­gency solid-rose­wood li­brary chairs from Palmer­stown House, Co Kil­dare, the seat of the Earls of Mayo. As Mr Jef­fer­son says, they are ‘vi­va­cious’ with their dra­mat­i­cally raked backs and also ‘supremely com­fort­able’. The show will con­tinue at 69, Pimlico Road, Lon­don SW1, for about a month and can be viewed at www.patrick­j­ef­fer­son.com
