Now for the fun part of this post! Here’s your chance to learn more about Rivers! I thought a little Q and A with Rivers would be insightful and Rivers so graciously agreed! Hopefully her answers will allow you to know a little more about Rivers and her new collection with Tritter Feefer! Enjoy!
1) What is your favorite piece from your new collection?
I have several favorites. it would have to be between the Dorothy Buffet and the Tucker Dining Table. I love white washed and waxed finish i created for the white oak tucker dining table and its simple elegant lines. The Dorothy Buffet is a really cool design that I came up with after seeing a Maison Jansen Jewelry Cabinet. The stretcher is my favorite part.
2) Where did the names come from for the pieces in your
new Collection with Tritter Feefer?
All of the pieces are named after dear friends and family members who have influenced my life in some way, save for the new Grace Ruffle Buffet, which is named after my favorite style icon, Grace Kelly. The design just looked like her to me.
3) Who is your favorite current Interior Designer and why?
has greatly influenced my work and perspective. Simple, Southern, Classic, tailored, elegant.
4) Where did your parents get the inspiration for your name?
Rivers is a family name. I have a Great Great Aunt in rural Mississippi who ran a farm and lived until she was 96. Her name was Rivers Lewis.
5) What’s your favorite holiday tradition?
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I have a large Mississippi family and we all make it priority to get together every Thanksgiving on our family’s land.
6) What is your most coveted personal possession?
My parents recently gave me my Great Grandmother’s Art Deco antique diamond ring on my thirtieth birthday. I teared up when they gave it me, and I now wear it every day.
7) Who is your favorite artist?
t would have to be my sweet friend and New Orleans based artist (and neighbor on Magazine Street) Kevin Gillentine

Leontine Linens makes beautiful monogrammed hand towels for powder rooms
