People and “Stuff”: Carey Maloney Book Signing
Scott Baldinger reports from Hudson. “Tout Warren Street is here,” said the lovely couple at the book signing for interior designer Carey Maloney’s Stuff, held Saturday, January 26, at Stair Galleries. The auction house was all set up for an appropriately eclectic sale of Deco, Art Nouveau and mid-century furniture, combined with Phillipe Stark and lots of hiply deshabille contemporary photography. (Modern & Contemporary Exposition Auction, February 2 @ 11 a.m.) “And un peu de Union as well,” someone added. But that really only described a part of the gathering, filled with M (Group) friends and well wishers from as far as across the river and, all the other way around, to the eastern edges of Columbia County and beyond (Salisbury, CT). Maloney (pictured at left with Joan Davidson) proved to be quite the ambulatory book signer, and only occasionally used the large-scale desk provided to him for the purpose, autographing on ledges, cocktail tables, and what have you, but preferring most of all just to mingle right backatcha.
