Serendipity — an unplanned series of happy intersections. It all began when I attended Craig Hall’s 50th anniversary bash for his Hall Group company – as a “plus one” of Dave Perry-Miller agent Sharon Quist. She introduced me to Hall Group VP Lea Anne Laughlin and we spoke about the under-construction Hall Arts project betwixt and between the event’s glittering city sky and non-stop catering (poetic license, it rained that night).
Flash-forward and I spent months finalizing the purchase of Quist’s Claridge double-penthouse listing that I am now gutting, splitting and flipping half (the Penthouse Plunge series). Part of that huge undertaking is sourcing finishes like appliances and plumbing fixtures. For those who’ve read me for a while, you know I’ve had a soft-spot for Gaggenau appliances for quite some decades.
I reached out to BHS (Bosch Siemens Home), owners of the Gaggenau and Thermador (and Bosch) brands, and met with Charles Pizzeck, their district sales manager. During those conversations of my needs, I learned that Hall Arts would also be using Gaggenau appliances. Up until now, Candy has had all the fun writing about the Hall Arts project, now it’s my turn!
