Carolyne Roehm has always been noted for her wonderful taste, so when she finally does settle into her One Sutton Place apartment three months hence, it should be something to see. It will take that long for her to get the place in the shape she wants...

The reception for collectors and benefactors will open the show at 5 p.m., and if you care to stare at something besides the furniture and objects, you can always look around for Carroll Petrie, Charlotte Ford, Jan Cowles, Chessy Rayner, Louise Grunwald, Kip Forbes, Kenneth Jay Lane and John Loring. They'll all be there, maybe with antique bells on. A whole new crowd will come swinging in at 6:30 p.m. for the patrons preview party. Benefiting will be the East Side House Settlement in the South Bronx.

J. Barry Ferguson will do his exquisite floral displays, and the Armory's historic Tiffany Room will be decorated by some preeminent designer, yet to be named. This year, Carol Mercer of Secret Garden Landscaping in East Hampton will design a garden at the show, and everyone's pretty excited about that.

This year, superb antiques from 65 prominent dealers throughout the United States and Europe will be on display -- and for sale, naturally. It would be nice if some antique lover like Barbra Streisand would come along and buy everything in sight but, as we all know, Barb's unloading.
