La Princesse of Chintz

Story by Ronda Carman

Becky with Mario Buatta, The Prince of Chintz, Colony Club

I love a good story. And I especially adore one that inspires and motivates. I believe that desire is a strong motivator, yet seldom is anything accomplished without passion. This is a fact that Becky Smith, owner and president of Thatchers’ Fine Timeless Fabric, knows firsthand. As is often the case, inspiration can come from anywhere, and for Becky it came in the form of a boudoir chair. In this case, it was a singular chair that sparked the imagination and set into motion a series of unforeseen events spanning three continents.
