This past Saturday, I went Live on Instagram for a “MFCH Table Talk” with renowned interior designer and antique specialist Charles Spada. A lover of vintage, architecture and design, Charles nurtured a deep love of France since childhood. He’s scoured markets across Europe for over two decades to secure the best and most unique 18th, 19th & 20th-century finds for his antiques showroom at the Boston Design Center, which specializes in an eclectic mix of antique and contemporary furniture, decorative accessories, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers.
For our May/June 2020 My French Country Home issue, we were fortunate to have Charles contribute a personal and heart-felt piece that shares his experience of the last night he spent at his former French home – the Manoir de Berthouville – a Norman hunting lodge built in 1652.
Did you miss our Live? Listen to the full conversation via my podcast below!
You’ll hear us chat about Charles’ love of France, how he came to buy (and restore) his beautiful second home in Normandy and hear him read an extract from his gorgeous piece (for access to the full piece, purchase our May/June 2020 issue HERE).
