Order in the Court 

Leaving jury duty, Stokes wandered to the Bowery and came upon the sconce's lampshades for $2. The paint is the color of a room Stokes saw in France and re-created, with the assistance of a painter and four bottles of champagne, from memory. The wall has eight coats of lacquer; she plans to have another five coats put on this summer.
