LET TER FR OM TH E E D ITOR Dear Readers, As another year barrels toward its end and the holidays approach, I tend to take stock and reflect on the things that are most important to me—the essentials. The basic tools of the trade are: space, light, shape, color and texture. I love good design because it hits me on a visceral level, and really get my neurons firing. A large part of our perceptions of any room come down to sight and touch, and one of the more interactive elements that impact those senses is textiles. So, in this issue we wanted to highlight this important and endlessly creative aspect of interiors. Life happens. That’s why in 1997, Ann Sutherland founded Perennials, dedicated to the proposition that luxury fabrics should be made to stand up to the wear-and-tear, spills, and “accidents” caused by kids and pets that are part of every day. Starting out with just 30 options, today their palate includes over 800 choices. ARRAY’s Cathy Whitlock spoke with Sutherland about how she turned a simple notion into an industry juggernaut by protecting us from ourselves (Spill the Wine, p. 24). Of course, from top to bottom, (and floor to ceiling) 200 Lex is filled with myriad textile options for every taste and application. We took a closer look at some of the showrooms and designers who are pushing the envelope with new inspirations and innovations that expand your creative choices (Woven Together, p. 30). As a top fashion designer, Timothy Godbold always had an intimate relationship with fabrics, but his mid-life switch to interiors (don’t call it a crisis) has allowed him to apply his entire life experience into his work. This Aussie son of an architect brings his love of everything from graphic tribal designs to florals, ‘80s icons to classic plasterwork, to his palette. He’s even authored his first book on the enduring influence of military style in fashion. This multi-talented designer certainly has snapped us to attention (Design Threads, p. 36). I hope that perusing these pages gets you thinking about the kind of textiles that excite you, the ones that make your eyes pop or that you can’t help but run your fingers across. You might even be moved to create them yourself!

Books

Unexpected Pucci: Interiors: Furniture, Ceramics and Art Pieces Angelo Flaccavento & Piero Lissoni Rizzoli October, 2019 224 pages $90 When you think of Pucci, iconic Italian fashions designed in swirling dazzling prints come to mind. The designs of Emilio Pucci have been an essential part of the fashion landscape since the 1960s and the House of Pucci has been a major force on the interior design scene. Commemorated in the upcoming book Unexpected Pucci, the volume takes a look at the designer’s interior design projects, furniture, rugs and porcelain, along with classic fashion images since the firm’s inception in 1947. The book features a variety of subjects ranging from his fashion installation at Palazzo Pucci during Pitti Uomo to former employee Christian Lacroix’s journey at the fabled house. Interiors featuring his rug collections, including collaborations with Kartell, Cappellini, Bisazza and Illy are also showcased in the book. While the title might be a tad misleading, the book displays a virtual feast for the eyes with images of the Palazzo Pucci in all its glory, Italian gardens and all. And if you are an Italophile and a lover of all things Pucci, this book is for you. British journalist Suzy Menkes penned the book’s foreword.

Kelly Wearstler: Evocative Style Kelly Wearstler Rizzoli October, 2019 256 Pages $55

The New Elegance: Stylish Comfortable Rooms for Today Timothy Corrigan Rizzoli September, 2019 256 Pages $60

Missoni: Great Italian Fashion Massimiliano Capella Rizzoli September, 2019 348 Pages $175

No stranger to the interior design scene, Kelly Wearstler’s swanky, color-infused interiors have been celebrated in the pages of shelter magazines for the past two decades. Honored in the Style & Design 100 by Time Magazine, Architectural Digest’s AD 100 and a Bravo Top Design judge, her books Domicilium Decoratus, Modern Glamour and Rhapsody are best sellers. Best known for her groundbreaking “modbaroque” work on the Viceroy Hotels, Maison 140 and Avalon, she literally raised the bar for boutique hotel design.

AD 100 and Elle Decor A-list designer Timothy Corrigan’s design credo says it all, “European elegance infused with California comfort.” His charming, fresh, and uniquely modern interiors have placed him in the upper echelon of international designers. Covered in an astounding 1,000 plus publications, the California/ Paris-based designer has garnered legions of fans. Designers also know Corrigan through his licensed collections with Perennials, Fromental, F. Schumacher and Co., Samuel & Sons, and Royal Limoges.

Missoni: Great Italian Fashion is the first comprehensive book on one of the fashion and design world’s greatest houses. Founded in 1953, Ottavio and Rosita Missoni set up a small knitwear shop and watched it gain international acclaim in the 1970s with its unique multicolor zigzag patterns. In addition to its women’s collection, the Italian fashion house also features sportswear, menswear and home furnishings line, Missoni Home.

Her new book, Kelly Wearstler: Evocative Style, is her first in over a decade and filled with new projects. The multi-talented designer opens up the thought process behind her work—think curated compositions and mise-en-scène vignettes—and shares her latest residential (Beaux Arts townhouse in Manhattan) and hospitality designs, including her new Proper Hotels venture and Beverly Hills Elysian estate, and many never-before-photographed interiors. A fascinating look at Wearstler’s evolution as a designer, readers will be both inspired and entertained with this long-awaited coffee table tome.

The New Elegance marks the designer’s second book (An Invitation to a Chateau du GrandLucé was his first) and features 11 homes in his prestigious portfolio including the interiors of a John Fowler-inspired townhouse in London and a California Colonial in Hancock Park to a Hollywood Regency-styled mansion in Los Angeles and the designer's own pied-a-terre in Paris. Corrigan shares his philosophy on classic design where old school meets contemporary and how to make it work for the modern lives we live today. Former Elle Decor editor Michael Boodro is a key contributor to the book.

Written with full access from the family archives, the book features reproductions of the famous Missoni patterns that includes original fabrics, color palettes, and drawings. Also of interest is a series of essays offering a peak into the Missoni’s world and depicting the design processes and artistic decisions by the designers themselves.

Rooms to Remember C A R L E T O N VA R N E Y

A D E S I G N E R ’ S T O U R of MACKINAC ISLAND’S

Rooms to Remember: A Designer’s Tour of Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel Carleton Varney Shannongrove Press August, 2019 240 Pages $65 Author, President of Dorothy Draper, lecturer and legendary decorator, Carleton Varney is perhaps one of the best known designers in America. His boldly colored Hollywood Regency styles at the Greenbrier in West Virginia is the stuff of design legend and his fabrics, china, lamps and crystal lines represent just a few of his many talents. In addition, Varney has penned 35 books ranging from Decorating on the Waterfront to novels such as Kiss the Hibiscus Good Night. Rooms to Remember offers the reader a visual tour of Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel. Located in northern Michigan, the island resort was built in 1887, and today the third-generation family-owned hotel is a place where horse-drawn carriages and bicycles are the only mode of transportation. Part travelogue and part design tome, the book features his renovation on the American classic hotel where no two rooms are alike.

Tom Scheerer: More Decorating Tom Scheerer Vendome Press September, 2019 296 Pages $60

No Place Like Home: Madeline Stuart Madeline Stuart September, 2019 272 pages $55

Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper Brian Coleman Gibbs Smith August, 2019 280 Pages $75

Interior designer Tom Scheerer has his own particular brand of chic and his classic decorating infused with a touch of modern has been compared to Albert Hadley and Billy Baldwin. His breathtaking interiors for the Lyford Cay Club caused a huge design sensation that is still copied and coveted today.

With roots firmly based in Hollywood (her father is director Mel Stuart of Willy Wonka fame and her mother was a decorator), it’s no doubt that Madeline Stuart would excel as a designer with a wide-ranging clientele in the entertainment industry. Her clients have included studio heads and Hollywood royalty, and Stuart’s painstakingly detailed and understated interiors are a study in elegance and timeless design that honor a sense of place.

Known for its stunning archival wallpapers, the prestigious Zuber & Cie factory has been manufacturing scenic wallpapers since 1797 (and the last company to produce woodblock printed papers). The panoramic wallpapers depicting historical and floral scenes have graced the walls of the Diplomatic Reception Room in the White House (The War of the Independence was installed at the time of the Kennedy presidency) and numerous chateaus, embassies and entrance halls and dining rooms in France, the United Kingdom and the United States. The panels are considered works of art and involve four people a month to hand-brush a panel with 2,030 unique paint formulas, utilizing the same antique woodblocks since the company’s inception.

More Decorating marks the architect and interior designer’s second book and features 20 of his latest projects. His penchant for island houses, including Harbour Island, Antiqua and Abaco, are showcased along with apartments and summer houses in Nantucket, the Hamptons and Maine, as well as Dallas, New York and Paris. The author also offers a master class in interior design and a much anticipated follow up to his bestselling Tom Scheerer: Decorates. A true design book page-turner where every interior is as unique as the rest, Scheerer writes, “I’ll never be accused of jumping on decorating bandwagons.” We agree.

No Place Like Home is the Los Angeles-based designer’s first book and a welcome addition to any design library. Stuart’s work spans both traditional and contemporary whether it’s an art aficionado’s Beverly Hills manse or a 1920s Hollywood hacienda to a Montana country home and Fifth Avenue apartment. Her aesthetic is one of the relationship between architecture and furniture, form and function and she excels at architectural restoration and remodeling (particularly on the properties of notable architects Paul Williams and Sylvanus Marston).

NOV

Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper celebrates the luxurious patterns, friezes, borders, ceiling rose and architectural trompe l’oeil. It is both a reference and art book and one look at the collection will make it easy to understand how King Louis Phillipe awarded founder Jean Zuber the Legion of Honor in 1834.

T

he road to the development of one of the design industry’s biggest success stories began with a marriage….and a goal to reimagine the luxury outdoor furnishings with a high-end, high-style performance fabric. Dallas interior designer Ann Sutherland first met husband David when she frequented his eponymous to-the-trade-only new showroom in 200 Lex. Love and marriage ensued for the fellow Oklahomans, and as Sutherland notes, “We started Perennials in 1997 with a shipment of fabrics that would go well with David’s line of teak outdoor furniture. It made sense to style and own our own (soft solution-dyed acrylic) fabrics and so the 25-year odyssey began. We were driven from the very beginning and with a lot of trial and error, we made a formula that is a lot more pliable with a better hand and driven by the trade business. (Between) the colorations and different textures, we realized there was a lot of indoor furniture that would benefit.”

Today Perennials is a major force in the design industry with more than 1,000 SKUs. Credit the top quality, surging interest in furnishings that go the distance and withstand the occasional wine spill, dog accident and standard wear-and-tear coupled with innovation at the forefront of everything the company manufactures.

“We are trying everything and want to be the moSt innovative and creative company for performance fabrics and inventing new qualities that nobody else has." In another couple of seasons, we will have a new yarn quality no one else has either,” details Sutherland who has served as the company’s CEO since 2018. As the company’s best brand ambassador, Sutherland’s household practices what she preaches. “I have four animals in my house, and they are on everything, I think that (with) the casualness of life, people still want pretty and luxurious but why sacrifice reliability and endurance for something that is silk? The first time your dog has an accident, it is done. Our fabrics last longer and something you can feel good about, and you don’t have to sacrifice the look, hand or quality.”

Available in dropstitch, Tibetan, flatwoven and chenille, the luxury performance rugs are made to order by skilled artisans.

The beloved patterns with whimsical names such as Rough and Rowdy, Tisket Tasket and Touchy Feely are perennial (pun intended) favorites along with the line’s classically chic and modern designs in a variety of color combinations that make it the go-to performance fabric for designers and consumers alike. The company’s in-house staff of fabric designers produce seasonal collections, and their stable of designer collaborations includes lines with Rose Tarlow, Clodagh, Galbraith and Paul, and the most recent, California and Paris-based international designer Timothy Corrigan. Influenced by his love of French designs mixed with his signature relaxed California style, the line is comprised of seven new patterns featuring chinoiserie prints (Eastern Eden), modern geometrics (Diamonds Are Forever) and new colorways in Nailhead and Rough and Rowdy, and many more. “Timothy sees the work with a different lens and we knew that we could do something different with him. He is much more of a classical and traditional designer and I am much more of a contemporary minimalist in my decorating, so for him to give us a lot of pattern and color, it’s very exciting,” she says. “The line is already a big hit and we just launched!”

Fabrics from Perennials Spring 2019 “No Hard Feelings� collection.

Natural Selection fabrics from the Spring 2019 line.

Sutherland’s Reeded Lounge Chair and Otti Side table is part of their outdoor furniture collection.

Besides making an appearance poolside or gracing the living room sofa, Perennials fabrics have found a home in everything from boutique hotels such as the Virgin Hotel in Dallas and the Four Seasons to yachts in Monaco. The company is currently outfitting the accessories with a private car company and an Italian fabric collaboration with B&B Italia, and recently finished an installation of 700 chairs in seafoam velvet at London’s Wembley Stadium. Rugs are a natural progression in Perennials’ everexpanding line that are UV, stain and mildew resistance. “We are currently doing a line of traditional rugs in India that will are all hand-woven,” Sutherland details. “Our plants in India have 110 looms in place and we are doubling that in the next phase. Being handmade, it still takes a certain amount of time to complete a rug and

once a designer understands the project and experiences the qualities of this, that is all they want to do.” Made to order by skilled artisans with the durable 100% solutiondyed acrylic yarns, there are also standards in stripes, solids and contemporary patterns available for quick ship. What does the future hold for Perennials? Today Perennials is a major force, and now at 200 Lex in the David Sutherland showroom. Sutherland has had to fend off requests to return to her former life as an interior designer (the perils of being popular) and collections in tabletop, accessories, pillows, bedspreads and more pet beds and accessories lie in the future. “We did a line of pet beds and they were great for us. Ours are so darn durable and can coordinate with any interior. You can’t get that at Petco,” she says.

bove the rows of neatly organized samples inside Kravet’s new showroom concept is a large, playful sign that urges its customers to “Think Inside the Box.” While designers are utilizing the resources there to do just that—generate ideas and inspiration for their client’s interiors—the company decided to think creatively, and inversely, “outside the box,” to reimagine, and even upend, the showroom model to better meet the needs of designers. The result is nothing short of modern: a user-friendly and high-tech, 3,000-square-foot outpost, aptly called Workspace, that opened at 200 Lex this past summer. Gone are the oversize display racks typically found in showrooms, and in their place, is a self-service library consisting of over 12,000 samples in just about every color the fabric house has to offer.

By Nicole Anderson

“The design industry is constantly evolving, and so is Kravet,” says Cary Kravet, President of Kravet Inc. “We are thrilled to lead the way with this new showroom and to provide a space where designers can find inspiration, source product, meet with clients and do what they do best—design!” Folded samples arranged by hue are available right there for designers to take with them on the go. In addition to Kravet, the library is filled with swatches from the fabric house’s other well-known brands, including Lee Jofa, Brunschwig & Fils, and GP & J Baker. For those in search of some fresh source material or insight into the company’s latest offerings, there’s a display wall showcasing six month’s worth of designer collections. Digital workstations at the center of the space further streamline the customer experience by allowing designers to simply scan the sample to check stock, find pricing, explore color options, and get details and specs. But there’s also plenty of help from showroom representatives, who are ready to assist customers when questions arise. You can also find the company’s partner, The Shade Store, in its own dedicated area, and have the chance to try out pieces from Kravet’s furniture lines.

Clockwise from top left: Kravet's 3,000-square-foot showroom is outfitted with spacious workstations where designers can look over samples, hold meetings with clients and enlist the help of representatives on hand. Inside the Workspace, designers will find a comprehensive sample library, including Kravet, Lee Jofa, Brunschwig & Fils, and GP & J Baker, in addition to The Shade Store and a selection of CuratedKravet product. The high-tech workstations are connected to a digital database allowing visitors to easily scan samples for colors and pricing, or check on stock.

“We are thrilled to report we are seeing our customers using this as more than just a shopping environment, but as a real workspace and extension of their office,” says Sheela Herr, showroom manager. The response has been so strong, Kravet is launching it second Workspace in Vancouver’s Armoury District this November. The showroom has only been open for a few months but designers have already put it to maximum use— whether to swing by and grab samples, discover Kravet’s brand-new collections, or even to plug in a computer and hold a conference call while placing an order. True to its name, the Workspace is proving to be even more than a shopping resource for designers.

an Francisco-based designer Nicole Hollis brought her refined eye to McGuire Furniture’s Spring 2019 collection, designing everything from chairs and tables to accessories and textiles. Simple yet rich in texture, Shadow is a true reflection of Hollis’s sleek, elegant aesthetic. “Similar to the collection as a whole, fashion and the intricacies of the materials used in haute couture were a large source of inspiration when developing the line of textiles for the collection,” explains Hollis. “We wanted to focus on visual interest and depth through texture more so than pattern to add another complex level to the pieces.” The fabric is made of cotton, acrylic, viscose and wool.

or designer Timothy Godbold, the key to his future was clearly predetermined in his DNA. With his father an accomplished architect and a stylish mother, his destiny as a fashion and interior designer was sealed. Growing up in Australia capital’s city of Perth, he notes, “My father liked a lot of (architect John) Lautner’s work, and so our house had a sunken living room, patrician walls and an inside garden. He was a forward thinker and prepared to get outside the box, while my mother had flair and creativity with every facet of her being and was into fashion, art and painting.” Creating houses

out of Legos, an obsession with arches, and sewing clothes for friends at the age of 13 were further indicators that a career in design was looming. The Aussie designer studied fashion and eventually moved to London where he worked for Ralph Lauren followed by a stint in New York designing the company’s Black Label women’s wear line that was featured in Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. A midlife crisis style “what do I do next moment” ensued, followed by a move to Sag Harbor where he worked with former Wilhelmina Models president Natasha Esch and her interiors store Monc XII. As a result, an interior design career was born. Today Timothy Goldbold Interiors boasts residential and contract clients from the Hamptons and Manhattan to Palm Beach and the West Coast. “When I was approached to design a house from the ground up, it felt really right on the first day.

me back to my father, who had the ability to walk on a job site and change the walls and the door openings on day one,” he says. “My look is architectural, clean, and modern and I try to get the balance right. “My designs are more than just a chair in the corner under an arch,” details the designer. The thing with American houses is you are working with a new structure and in Italy, 100-year-old apartments have nuances such as walls with plaster, stucco and relief. You can put a chair in a room like that, and it looks amazing.” His love of contemporary is also enhanced with a touch of vintage, as he advises, “to get a feeling of heritage you need to always add a piece of vintage furniture to give a house what it is missing.” The styles of the ’80s influence a lot of the designers’ work as he notes, “While I didn’t grow up in New York, I have always loved it and had a romantic notion of the city in the ’80s. Madonna, Indochine, Keith Haring, Basquiat, Warhol and the downtown scene is what I have a real passion for, so I reference it a lot.” Photo credit: Manufoto NOV

For a recent model apartment at Tribeca’s 100 Barclay, he used the infLuence of Keith Haring and South African art as his muse. He loves designing these type of “show apartments,” due to the free rein it provides and also gives clues to his true aesthetic as a designer. “This is one of those apartments you love to look at but ultimately for people who have a cat, dog and kids, it’s not functional,” he explains. “I kept things really tight with the color palette and let the furniture speak for itself.”

Godbold also added author to his expanding resume with the publication of his book Military Style Invades Fashion (Phaidon). A visual journey of the influence of military-inspired clothing, the designer draws the parallels with the interior design world as well. “I am disciplined like a general and love military in interiors like the Safari Chair,” he details. “It was the first chair that could be posted to you because it could be dismantled.” Next up for the multi-talented designer is a natural progression with a line of plaster relief-style wallpapers. Available through Bradley, the line is an homage to the organic modern lines of the ’70s,” he says. Influenced by his love of artists Richard Etts and Giacometti, his collection is yet another example of his refined design sensibilities.

Start your day of at Lamalo— Gadi Peleg’s new Middle Eastern restaurant in the Arlo Nomad Hotel—with a hearty Israeli breakfast including fresh vegetables and baked goods. An after-work casual meal with friends begins with the mezze-style dishes—a variety of dips and salads—served on an oblong Jerusalem laffa flatbread fresh from the oven. Larger dishes include a grilled whole fish with herb salad and chermoula, slow-roasted short rib on the bone with vegetables, a whole overnight-braised cabbage head with Silan-verjus glaze, and grilled octopus with preserved lemon butter and grilled vegetables. The drink menu includes big cocktails meant for sharing, like the $55 “Good Vibrations” with Arak, grapefruit, lemon, and mint intended for five people. White, red and sparkling wines from Lebanon, Israel and France are also available, as well as a few beers. The Lamalo team also runs the 31st story rooftop bar and Barlo, the second-floor lounge.

Rezdôra, an Italian restaurant from chef Stefano Secchi (an alum of three-Michelinstarred Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy) offers pastas and vegetable dishes from the Emilia-Romagna region, a cuisine not often found in other NYC restaurants. A $75-per-person pasta tasting is available, along with an à la carte menu and cocktails. For starters, try the buffalo mozzarella served with charred greens and pesto or the gnocchi fritti. Follow with a pasta like maccheroni al pettine with duck ragu, or the sweetly named “Grandma walking through the forest in Emilia”— cappelletti verdi—pockets of spinach-infused pasta filled with roasted leeks, tossed in a black mushroom sauce with spring peas. If you’re craving protein, try the veal cheek, braised for five hours with a spring onion purée or the sea bass with black garlic zabaglione and spring peas. Italian wines dominate on the drink front, primarily northern Italian wines from Tuscany, Piedmont and the Veneto, among others.

Head to Paloma at Hotel Hendricks if you’re in a festive mood—the bright décor, beautiful chandeliers and color cocktails will bring a smile to your face. Chef PJ Calapa draws inspiration from the cuisines of Mexico, Argentina and Peru, but also from a childhood spent in his grandmother’s kitchen in Brownsville, Texas. Paloma also has a large outdoor space with fountains and artistic murals. Get started with the fluke aguachile, tuna tostadas, or Argentinian beef carpaccio while sharing cocktails—The Goldcrush with hot honey, citrus and bourbon sounds great, or the Mosquito with Mezcal, Campari and ginger. Skewers of beef, chicken, shrimp, and zucchini make great apps, and tacos, too—crispy cod with cabbage, cilantro and crema is a good choice. When it’s time to get serious with the food, move on to Peruvian chicken and rice with pickled onion, cilantro and aioli or short ribs al pastor with pineapple chutney, potato and grilled jalapeno.

Chef Cedric Vongerichten may come from a culinary dynasty, but his inventive French-Indonesian cuisine, original cocktails and hearty food in a beautiful and serene environment his first solo restaurant—he is partners with his father, Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, in restaurants in New York and Jakarta—are all his own. This is a place where you’ll be comfortable sharing dishes with friends and spending an evening deep in conversation. Start with the Greater Galangal Sour (scotch, chickpea water and galangal) or the South-East Sweet Tea—a mix of bourbon, red tea, honey and smoked salt. Small dishes of shrimp satay, crispy baby squid, chilled peekytoe crab, or clams Jimbaran-style are good accompaniments. When you’re ready for more, lobster noodle with kecap manis and Thai Basil, baby back pork ribs with a soy tamarind glaze and sesame, or the coconut crescent duck with chili-scallion sambal and baby leeks should keep you happy.

The dark, quiet and cool rooms in the new Equinox Hotel in NYC’s newest neighborhood are lauded as a temple of rejuvenation. There are 212 rooms, all stocked with healthy foods and drinks in the mini-bars, face masks, sleep supplements and more. You’ll want to rest up to take full advantage of the hotel’s 60,000-square-foot fitness club. The rooms include handcrafted mattresses free of metal springs and alternate support layers with flexible ones to adapt to your shape. The bathrooms include a rainforest showerhead and are stocked with an exclusive AM/PM Body Cleanser duo from Grown Alchemist, using aromatic herbs found on the High Line. The restaurant also promotes wellbeing with menus developed for high-performance breakfasts and dinners, and even sleeppromoting and after-hours selections. Enjoy the views from the 24th-floor dining room and terrace, and try an adaptogenic superfood latte, high-intensity martini, a cutting-edge elixir or a selection from the international wine list.

Ian Schrager’s addition to Edition, the brand-withina-brand under the Marriott umbrella and first true luxury hotel in the Times Square area, opened a second New York City location at the corner of 47th Street and 7th Avenue. The 27 floors in a new tower include 452 rooms and suites, a 5,000-square-foot performance venue, a huge fitness center with a wellness deck and a restaurant with a 5,800-squarefoot beer garden and event deck. Michelin-starred Chef John Fraser oversees the six dining experiences. Rooms are outfitted with custom imported linens, down comforters and pillows, a fully stocked minibar, 49-inch flat screen HDTVs complimentary WiFi and Bluetooth speakers in every room. Natural stone bathrooms have rainforest showerheads and custom Le Labo amenities with a signature Edition scent.

Architect Nobutaka Ashihara brings another boutique hotel to Midtown, but with a unique décor from designer Marello Pozzi incorporating mahogany furniture, polished copper and brass fixtures, exposed concrete and pastel accents in its 176 rooms. The hotel boasts a rooftop bar—the Hendricks Rooftop—with panoramic views of the city, and the restaurant Paloma (see previous page). Each room has a 40-inch smart TV, refreshment center with mini-fridge and a Keurig coffee maker. You can hunker down in the business center if you need to get some work done or spend some time in the fitness center. And if you don’t like traveling without your best friend, the Hotel Hendricks is pet-friendly. The hotel’s central location puts you at the center of multiple subway stations, Penn Station and Grand Central so you can explore all the city has to offer.

Set in Hell’s Kitchen, StayPineapple is quirky, arty and not like any hotel you’ve stayed in before. With its bright, stylish, colorful décor, and rooms with names like Fashionista King and Jewel Box Queen, you know you’re in for something a little different. The hotel has high-speed wireless Internet throughout, coffee and treats available in the 24-hour attended lobby, and state that they are “dog obsessed”—there’s a Pineapple Pup Package available. Rooms have hairdryers, flat-screen TVs and coffee machines. The rooms are smaller than most hotels, but so lavishly decorated that guests won’t even notice. But their Terrace Cosmo Suite has a king bed, extra living space, and a private terrace. And comfort is the StayPineapple’s most important feature—their “Naked Experience” features double duvet European-style bedding, comfortable robes, big fluffy towels, and it’s all “crazy” clean so sleeping in the buff is not a problem.

Backstory

A vocational school for the decorative arts, The Alpha Workshops helps those in need train for a brighter future as artisans of the highest level.

The Alpha Workshops

K

enneth Wampler—actor turned textile designer turned social worker—founded The Alpha Workshops in 1995 in response to the AIDS crisis, as it morphed from immediate death to survival mode when drug cocktails appeared.

Wampler realized that people’s lives had been disrupted as a result of the disease, and the workshop eventually turned into a vocational school training people with long-term disabilities in the decorative arts, allowing them to rejoin the work force. It was important it create a low-stress working

environment, and because of the exclusivity on HIV, it allowed people who had been totally stigmatized and traumatized to be in a positive and supportive environment. The Alpha Workshops now trains people with a number of conditions, such as PTSD, mental illness, drug addiction, incarceration, and refugee trauma.

pieces.” Approximately 45 students are trained in all areas of the decorative arts in the Workshop’s nine-month program, and some stay on for a three-month paid internship in the studios. Alpha Workshops also provides out-placement and with so many qualified artisans, they now have a hiring source.

There was a need to create funds to support this no-fee program, and initially The Alpha Workshops started doing very small projects which quickly grew considering the degree of talent early on. “Any number of skills came into the mix,” explains Paul Kratz, Sales and Production Director. “Suddenly we were handling substantially large decorative arts projects, covering everything from plastering, painting, gilding, even one-off sculptural

The wallpapers designed and created by The Alpha Workshops are shown exclusively in the showroom of Dennis Miller Associates. For over 30 years, Miller has represented artists, artisans and furniture makers to the trade and moved into the New York Design Center about 18 years ago. He became familiar with The Alpha Workshops through Jim Druckman, President and CEO of 200 Lex, who had been on the board of directors

for many years. “I was immediately drawn to the creativity, and to the earnest devotion of Ken Wampler and what he created,” says Miller. “We began working with The Alpha Workshops because of their devotion to the industry and their connections with designers. There is very much an appeal for handwork, for the creative process, and it’s the only wallpaper line that we carry.” It can be a challenging sell for Miller since his showroom isn’t seen as a destination for textiles or wall coverings. “Our clients appreciate it,” Miller says. “There is more interest than ever in the handmade, and because we work in the high-end of the interior design world, it’s reasonable for our clients to want to differentiate their installations, creations, and projects by interspersing very artisanal products.” He goes on to explain that it makes interior designers’ clients know they have something very special. Maximum customization is raison d’être of any high-end showroom. The Alpha Workshops has studios in San Francisco and Los Angeles and will be opening in a few more markets soon. This substantial training program utilizes high-expense materials and fundraising is key. At the beginning of the year, The Alpha Workshops became a whollyowned subsidiary of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services. Its $2 million budget is

now a part of a $270 million budget and went from a one-person development department to one with 17 people. “It’s a good fit,” says Kratz, “because The Jewish Board spends their time helping disadvantaged people get ready to return to normal lives and sometimes education is necessary.” The Alpha Workshops has students of diverse backgrounds and so the program works well within their goals. The Alpha Workshops is coming into its 25th year and looking at new products as part of a heritage collection. “We've relied on a technique that is unique to us based on origami where large pieces of paper are rhythmically folded and unfolded so it’s all hills and valleys, and allows layers of color to be sponged thinly on top sticking only to the high points and then you iron the paper,” explains Kratz. In a world of enormous white walls, The Alpha Workshops offers articulation and the paper is immensely successful. Stenciling is coming back as a

technique and they’re developing a style utilizing stencils with overlays, producing a vaguely ikat look. All the papers produced in Chelsea—4,000 yards a year created on six 20-foot wallpaper tables with a staff of five. Some designs are freehand products with no match or repeats; another early technique is free-stamping—crumpled leftover drawing vellum is adhered it to a piece of cardboard and dipped in paint to produce the print; and yet another uses leftover industrial kitchen floor matting, applied to a piece of plywood. Necessity is truly the mother of invention, and The Alpha Workshops utilizes techniques that set them apart and creates beauty for the home.
