One of my favorite pieces of furniture is Amy Howard's Serpentine Chest. I especially like it in the finish pictured below. I first saw this magnificent piece in a showhouse, as part of the 'teenage girl' suite.

Anyone familiar with London's famed Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens knows 'The Serpentine', a lake that spans both parks. It received the name from its snakelike, curving shape. A central bridge divides the lake into two parts, and defines the boundaries between Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
On the grounds of Kensington Gardens is the famed Serpentine Gallery, one of London's premiere contemporary art galleries (and home to the costly and problem ridden Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain).
