A 2003 Home cover story followed Laurie Frank as she prepared and hosted one of her renowned dinner parties at her Whitley Heights house. Sixteen months later, an electrical fire in the kitchen led to extensive water and smoke damage that required the structure to be taken down to the studs. Here, she stands in her rebuilt dining room next to her long Guatemalan altar table, salvaged from the fire and refinished, and antique ballroom chairs.
