My Favorite Things: Andrew Puschel
The fabulous 110-year-old fabric house, F. Schumacher & Co., has long been one of my favorites. It seems that I am not alone in my opinion. Everyone from Dorothy Draper to Jamie Drake has collaborated with the iconic company.
Through the wonderful world of email I have gotten to know Andrew Puschel, the fifth-generation descendant of the founder Frederic Schumacher. Andrew has done an amazing job of revamping the firm’s website and reaching out to designers and bloggers alike.
Andrew has taken a keen interest in sustainable practices and is now working on launching an organic line of fabrics.
My favorite gift to give this year?
An IOU—just joking! Pillows made out of Schumacher fabric. Right now people are seeking more comfort than ever in their homes and pillows are a great way to give new life to a room.

Time with my family and friends.
My favorite way to celebrate the holidays?
Heading home to see my family and childhood friends.
My favorite luxury in life?
A much needed vacation during which I have no cell phone or Internet.

My favorite cookie?

New York City...as if there were any question!

Oh, and my favorite drink...
