PSH: The mermaid figurine on your shelf is so incredible! What's the story behind it?
AL: It's all Bari Ziperstein! I handpicked this piece because it reminded me of me and my husband's personalities. The shelves are part of the art piece. It brings to mind a great quote from the 1958 film Auntie Mame, where she states that "the world is a banquet and some people are starving to death." This piece is a banquet.
