Todd Merrill Gallery is showing a plaster console by San-Francisco-based decorator John Dickinson. In 1980, I wrote a profile on San Francisco interior designer, John Dickinson. The collection of plaster furniture, which he designed for Macy’s in the early 80s, marked the height of Dickinson’s career. Out of the 25 pieces in this series, I love those pieces inspired by classical antiquity, with animal legs and paw feet. With the renaissance of collecting design, the plaster furniture by Dickinson was rediscovered.
