"We wanted to do something a little bit crazy here," interior designer Brian McCarthy says of the guest bedroom in this weekend home in the Berkshire Mountains. But looking at the carved teak table that he chose to place bedside, one can't help thinking he would have been nuts not to use the piece, which is as beautiful as it is original.
Sourced at Tucker Robbins, New York designers' go-to guy for unusual pieces from Africa and Indonesia, the table was made in the Philippines in the 19th century. "It lends a sculptural quality to the room," says Brian, who chose an equally arresting but entirely different piece — a rustic French shoemaker's table — for the bed's far side. "I love the note of humor it brings to the room."
