The Old Table of a Beloved 101-Year-Old Artist - The New York Times
7 March 2017For The New York Times Style Magazine, the writer and author of “Worn Stories,” Emily Spivack, interviews creative types about their most prized possessions. Here, the 101-year-old painter Carmen Herrera explains why one inconspicuous table has been in the center of her living space for almost 60 years.
The table is in the heart of my loft. It’s the main piece of furniture in my living space. My home has always been very pared down and simplified. It is a very utilitarian and comfortable space with no decorative excesses. I find inspiration in the simplicity of a straight line and many of the objects in my home, like this table, are just that ... simple.
