Reserve Now! "Hearth & Earth" Luncheon  
Conversations with Alexa Hampton and Thomas Woltz 
Thursday, December 18, 2014
"At an early age, Alexa Hampton learned the language of good design, the vocabulary to speak it, and the elements that define it... she traveled the world by her father's side, touring the great architectural landmarks and discovering beauty, training her eye."

"[Thomas Woltz'] work is very much about knowing the spirit-what the ancients called the genius loci-tailoring it for both humans and animals, and favoring the subtle over the showy." -  Alastair Gordon, WSJ November 6, 2013
