Why be thankful if your table doesn’t cost at least $30,000 right? Ok maybe all of this stuff doesn’t cost $5 million, but it sure as hell is fancier than any of the non Architectural Digest ready Turkey days most of us are having this year… Not to say that less isn’t more. (it totally is, and yes, I know BFD is all about affordability like 99% of the time). But where’s the self indulgent fun in that? Plus we haven’t been on 1st Dibs in a while so… Dream Thanksgiving it is! (plus a few little affordable things for the proles… like us)

Gold Sciolari Chandelier OFFERED BY LES TROIS GARCONS INTERIORS; $3,829.14 USD … Plus whatever it takes to get this this North American rewired and ready for dinner in the next 2 hours because this is European, but you have people to do that, right?
