Elsie Tabouret

tab·o·ret also tab·ou·ret  (tăb′ə-rĕt′, -rā′)

noun

1. A low stool without a back or arms originally in the shape of a drum.
2. A low stand or cabinet.

Origin of TABORET

French tabouret, literally, small drum, from Middle French, diminutive of tabor, tabour drum, from Old French

First Known Use: 1630

ELSIE TABOURET

The original Elsie Tabouret was designed by Elsie de Wolfe Mendel, the “First Lady of Interior Decoration” and mentor to Duquette. So taken with Duquette’s talent, de Wolfe introduced him into Hollywood society, personally commissioning significant pieces for her home to showcase his abilities. It was through this recognition that Duquette rose to worldwide fame and established himself as one of the leading designers of his time. This sophisticated replica of the original – which now resides in Duquette’s historic studio – pays homage to this important association and friendship and remarks upon the sophisticated spirit of the woman behind Duquette’s early fame.

Timeless Trend: Pharmacy Lamp

The classic pharmacy lamp was
first introduced in the 1890s. The electric pharmacy-style lamps easily provided a direct downward light their gas-powered predecessors could not. Can you imagine trying to turn an open flame upside down. That targeted light, combined with adjustable arms and beam-focusing dome-shaped metal shades, made them ideal for task lighting in pharmacies, hospitals, and factories. By the early 1900s, the versatile cast-iron- or brass-bodied lamps began migrating from the workplace to the home office, den, and bedroom. Today, pharmacy lamps still bring a utilitarian and attractive ambient light into any room of your home.

It’s no wonder these lamps have been unsurpassed in quality and utility for over 120 years.
