Wine & Cheese in the Poesis Workshop
It’s becoming a familiar story in our region: A young couple moves to the country and buys a house with a barn so they can work from home. Designer Rob Bristow (photographed with his friend Michelle Childs, left) and his wife, Pilar Proffitt, run a design business called Poesis out of their Lakeville barn, and they invited friends and neighbors into their workshop for cocktails amidst their exquisite, hand-made contemporary furniture. They were hoping to make room for new designs, which will be manufactured in the barn and unveiled in January at Ralph Pucci International in New York City.
