I have always loved fine china. Spending over a decade at Michael C. Fina as a design consultant, I have had plenty of time to explore all the beautiful jewelry and patterns of fine china, stemware, and flatware we have to offer. That's why when I recently purchased a condo in Johannesburg, South Africa, my first thought was, "What will my china be for this home?" In my mind, I began sorting through all the different tables I've helped clients design over the years. Knowing that my favorite tables have always been the ones that truly captured the client's taste and style, I chose Mega by Royal Copenhagen; a pattern I have always felt a connection with.

I love to collect plates and silver flatware like people collect Yves Saint Laurent, so when I was asked to select my "Favorite Things" I found it rather difficult to narrow them all down. Ultimately I selected beautiful jewelry and tableware that I know would help my clients create memories to be treasured for years to come.
