“I collect frogs I find while I'm traveling and at flea markets. They're symbols of resurrection and abundance. Recently, I found one in a remote village in Burma, carved in wood.”
—Pierre Weber, restaurateur

“In the Luberon, in Provence, I purchased 19th-century Gothic Revival chairs and a cherry writing table. I also have a gilded French sunburst barometer, a ruin of a Louis XVI console, a tole lamp, a Louis XIII armchair and a liquor cabinet with classical bronze mounts.”
—Wendy Moonan, antiques expert

“I collect white mid-20th-century porcelain from Scandinavia and Germany. You can still find it at flea markets. I keep my collection in an antique Indian cabinet made from ebony wood.”
—Madeline Weinrib, home accessories designer

“I've been collecting white dishes, ironstone and other earthenware, both vintage and new, for years. I love the clean forms, and how food looks on white china.”
