Friend and well-mannered Episcopalian, K. Cooper Ray, teamed up with One Kings Lane to host his very own Tastemaker Sale. After trips to John Pope Antiques and Julia Santen Gallery on King Street in Charleston, Ray presents a top drawer curation of antiques, furniture, vintage posters, pheasant taxidermy, and more. My favorite piece is the taxidermy white tundra swan or the prep striped library chair—I can’t decide. Act fast though, you only have three days to take home your own piece of South Carolina.
“I approached the tastemaker sale as if I were decorating my house, albeit a dream house with many great and big rooms, high ceilings, 18th Century crown moldings and heart-pine wood floors. It was a great excuse to hit some of my favorite shops in Charleston and pick out all the things I always wanted but could never afford and offer those finds up to the regular readers of Social Primer.”
