Ten years ago in the August 1998 issue of PaintWorks, we featured an amazing dining room collection designed by Margot Clark. The concept of this article was to present several patterns and show how they could be adapted to a variety of surfaces. Her dining room collection continues to be among our top favorites and Margot continues to be one of our favorite contributing designers. To commemorate this 10-year anniversary, she painted a set of scalloped bentwood boxes to match the original dining room ensemble. We trust you will be as inspired as we were and make the time to create this unique, breathtaking collection. Join us in this celebration, and adapt Margot’s designs to surfaces of choice and create your own accent pieces. Table of Contents
