The Story Behind Your Stuff

Often when we go into someone's home, there are a few pieces that immediately catch our eye. We wonder where they got them. And, quite often, there's a story behind them that's as interesting as the pieces themselves, whether it's a foray into a strange deserted neighborhood in Los Angeles, a trip to a Bali or Morocco, a connection to one of our favorite French sculptors, a perilous drive with a piece of furniture strapped to the roof or something more.

Ask us where we got our couches and it's a long crazy tale that involves our cousin getting married, a fake wedding registry, multiple addresses, months of waiting for our "wedding date" to pass and passing off our Grandmother's engagement ring as our own. It's one of the many stories that our home contains. What about you? What are the stories in your home?
