LOOK WHO'S GOT OUR GOAT








It's Lyle & Umbach whose Goat Leg Table in high-polish nickel conjures visions of oh-so perfect European interiors where contemporary furniture blends perfectly into traditionally paneled rooms decked in Old Master paintings. A Rubens with frolicking satyrs and nymphs particularly comes to mind. And for good reason. This table is a fresh, modern take on ideas tracing back to the days of Queen Anne. Its new hoof caps what's essentially a cabriole leg, whose outcurved knee and incurved ankle stylize the rear leg of a leaping goat (cabriole is Italian for "goat's leap"). Google "satyr table" and you'll see the style evolution from above to this beauty in carved wood by Niermann Weeks (available through Decorati, of course), and back to their 18th Century precedents.

It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
