10/–/1983 – ‘Begin Judy McKie on dining room table.’

When Jim bought his apartment at the Sherry-Netherland building on Fifth Avenue, he took great care in choosing the furnishings. In many cases, he commissioned craft artisans to create unique pieces. One of these was an enchanting dining room table by Judy McKie with carved vines for legs. The hand-carved chairs to go with it featured animals crawling up the legs or peeking over the backs. Her use of animal life appealed to Jim, and in an interview for Metropolitan Home magazine, he remarked, “I love her sense of humor.”
