QUESTION & ANSWER WITH
MICHAEL PHILLIPS YOU RECENTLY ADDRESSED THE MEMBERS OF THE DECORATIVE FURNISHINGS ASSOCIATION AND DESIGN CENTERS INTERNATIONAL AT THEIR ANNUAL MEETING AND MADE A CASE FOR WHY SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT IS MORE CRITICAL THAN EVER FOR DESIGN CENTERS. PLEASE EXPAND. In the home furnishings market today there are three key sectors to focus on: trade showrooms, retail stores, and online shopping. The to-the-trade model needs to compete with retailers that are continuing to blur the lines in how they engage the professional designer as well as the end use consumer. By expanding their level of service and remaining adaptable to the marketplace, they are cultivating a very savvy hybrid customer who wants an elevated shopping experience with pricing value. COULD YOU PROVIDE A FEW EXAMPLES? Let’s start by taking a look at the changes we are making to the landscape of the Boston Design Center. We have tenants like Ann Sacks, Janus et Cie, and Waterworks, whose customer base bridges consumers and design professionals. To accommodate these showrooms we are adding a variety of amenities to the first floor of the Innovation and Design Building, including retail. This makes these tenants happy while allowing us to attract new complementary brands, breathing new life into our model. We will continue to support to-the-trade tenants with the same vigilance we always have. HOW DOES ONLINE SHOPPING FACTOR INTO THE SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT TRIANGLE? The online business has its roots in the same fundamentals as the mail order business in the 80s and 90s with brands like Williams Sonoma and Restoration Hardware and more recently Smith & Noble and DWR. In order for design centers to stay competitive, there needs to be an increased focus on logistics, fulfillment, and coordinated installation programs with the goal of making the customer’s delivery times shorter and providing cash and carry options, shorter lead times, and an enhanced sense of customer service. I see this as a key opportunity for to-the-trade showrooms and design centers to deliver a heightened customer experience.
BDC TO RECEIVE NEW ENTRY FAÇADE AND WINDOW REPLACEMENT Jamestown is pleased to provide an update regarding the Façade and Window Replacement Project at the Innovation and Design Building—our three-year endeavor to remove more than 1,000 old and failing windows, repair the building concrete, and install new aluminum and glass windows. The new, energy efficient windows maintain climate control within the building and prevent solar gain, a highlight of Jamestown’s green initiatives. These renovations will contribute to the elimination of leaks that have plagued the IDB for years. The building is also receiving an elastomeric coating to increase its longevity and a thorough cleaning and refreshed look, including a more attractive and welcoming façade at the entrance of the BDC. Jamestown is working alongside existing tenants to replace windows in an orderly fashion so businesses may continue to operate during construction. For all inquiries, please contact Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DEAR READERS Welcome to our annual Trend Forecasting issue. We had so much fun putting this issue together because I challenged all our editors to get involved. I have always believed that design is everywhere you look. It’s like keeping an open mind. If you remain engaged in the world around you and willing to consider things in new and different ways, your life will be far more inspiring. So rather than me just reporting on the trends, we all went out and had a good look around.
En route by boat to the Nantucket by Design Panel presented by the Boston Design Center
We were sitting around the Jamestown offices enjoying lunch and chatting about the trips a few of us had coming up. Those Diana Vreeland words, “The eye has to travel,” immediately sprang to mind. I asked each editor to photograph their trip and then come back to the BDC and “shop” out their photos. We had a ball pulling fabrics, trimmings, wallpapers, rugs, tiles, and more from the showrooms at the BDC that spoke to the images we had gathered. We visited show houses in Boston, New York, and Nantucket to identify trends as well. This is a great time for design in my book. How lucky are we that we get to shop the BDC with abandon and interpret the trends however we see fit? Spend some time with this issue and see if you too don’t start to see the trends in new and interesting ways. As always, please be in touch: email@example.com.

CECIL BEATON AT HOME: AN INTERIOR LIFE By Andrew Ginger; Foreword by Hugo Vickers We all know Cecil Beaton for his brilliant photographs, but what many don’t know is that he was a talented costume designer, set designer, playwright, and a very fine interior designer. This book focuses on two homes dear to Beaton’s heart—Ashcombe House, near the Wiltshire village of Tollard, and Reddish House located in Broad Chalke in the same county—as well as London’s Pelham Place and Beaton’s New York hotel suites. This deeply layered visual biography brings together original photographs, artworks, and possessions from his interiors to present an intimate picture of Beaton’s extraordinary life.

Detail of 19th-century bibliotheque from Lee Calicchio Antiques.
A recently married couple with a blended family from previous marriages were looking for a fresh start. They turned to Catherine Olasky and Max Sinsteden, whose firm Olasky & Sinsteden has offices in New York and Texas, to help them meld their tastes. The wife wanted something that would exude a youthful vibrancy and the husband wanted to hold on to his WASP-y, antique furniture. They chose Cambridge because it offered an experience both urban and suburban, where they could walk everywhere and feel knitted into the community. They requested that the interiors be able to expand to accommodate visiting family or to retreat when not in use to offer additional quiet space. The result is a harmonious juxtaposition of eclectic and traditional.

SERENITY NOW MASTERMINDING A LAKESIDE DREAM HOUSE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
HIS & HERS EXTENDED F E AT U R E
words by chesie breen photography by casey dunn architecture by aamodt/plumb interior design by jennifer vaughn miller landscape architecture by michael boucher landscape architecture
The dock on Lake Austin was designed for swimming, boating, or just relaxing.
Polished wood paneling adds warmth to the living room.
The formal dining room has a coffered ceiling and two full walls of glass anchored by a custom resin dining table with brass base.
When the husband-and-wife Cambridge-based architectural team Aamodt/Plumb received the commission to help create a dream house on the banks of Lake Austin in Texas, their challenge was to design a house that would incorporate all the spaces that their clients needed without disturbing the two-plus acre site with mature trees and the most enviable view on the lake. Embracing the views, working around the footprint of the existing trees, and enhancing opportunities for indoor/outdoor living were their guiding directives. The house needed to be warm and inviting, yet
sufficiently grand on approach from the entry drive, while casual and comfortable on the lakeside, where most of the familyâ€™s time would be spent. The main house is over 10,000 square feet with an additional 7,600 square feet devoted to a swimming pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, and living terraces, plus three waterfront structuresâ€”boat house, fishing dock, and swimming dock. A 1,900-square-foot guest house with 4,700 square feet of terrace adds to the composition.
Again mindful of the existing landscape, the architects decided to shift the volumes of the house around the trees. The resultant shape of the house creates pockets of outdoor space that can be enjoyed from the inside of the home—a garden is nestled next to the formal dining room, a fountain becomes an extension of the library, and the main outdoor living area is located between the two wings of the house. The climate in Austin is quite mild and this configuration provides the clients with a year-round oasis for indoor/ outdoor living. A house of this size could easily end up with faraway, underused corners but not so at the hands of Mette Aamodt and Andrew Plumb. “It’s a big house,” Aamodt admits, “but it is a house for a family. We didn’t want there to be any far corners of the home.” To achieve this balance the architects devised a unique scissor-like stair that stitches the first and second floors together from both sides of the house. The surprising effect is a quick trip to any part of the house, and a casual sense of intimacy rarely found in houses of this size. “Aamodt/Plumb has an excellent sense of modern design and can tackle the most complex projects, while still paying attention to the smallest details. They do a great job of creating designs that push a customer’s simple ideas into fabulous architecture,” shares the homeowner. Intended to serve the family for generations, the house is built with timeless, locally-sourced materials. Lueders limestone was used extensively and takes on multiple forms ranging from cut stone pavers to monolithic load-bearing blocks to a special tapered profile that clads the main house. The tapered stone cladding creates a weaving effect on the façade of the house, and its appearance changes throughout the day as the sun creates continuously shifting shadow patterns—much like the surrounding natural landscape. The overall result is a masterful embodiment of serenity now.
1 A bar in the game room looks out onto the pool terrace and lake. 2 The scissor stair knits the wings of the house together in one simple move. 3 The library looks out onto a small garden and water feature. 4 A cast bronze door opens onto the foyer. 5 Material sampling: glass, metallic threads, Lueders limestone, light, and shadow.
The house opens up for its big reveal on the lakeside, its wings spreading out and canopies extending even farther to capture the outdoor space. Deep second floor balconies create private outdoor living spaces and shade the interior from the strong Texas sun.
Some people call it the bathroom. We call it the family room. A toddler learning to potty train, siblings in the tub every night around seven, kids using toothbrushes as swords. Where does it happen? The bathroom, where a lot of our family life takes place. At Designer Bath, we know families, because we are one, and we know bathrooms because it’s been our business for the past 70 years. So, whether you’re doing six bathrooms, or just a new tub, we can help you with one of the best rooms in your house (although we’re not thinking you want to have a dinner party in there, or anything).

THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL Design Is Everywhere You Look
MEXICO CITY PORTO ERCOLE
The editors of ID BOSTON have traveled near and far this year. It was the legendary editor and style icon Diana Vreeland who pronounced, “The eye has to travel.” With these words in mind we picked up our cameras to demonstrate that design is everywhere you look. Whether in Tokyo, Mexico City, or Porto Ercole, our visual memories inspired us to look at the things we see every day in a new way.

PORTO ERCOLE HOTEL IL PELLICANO Porto Ercole is a small fishing village on the Tuscan Coast equidistant to Rome and Florence, where la dolce vita reigns supreme. We found it to be some of the most beautiful coastline in Italy, and enjoyed languid days tootling around on a Riva and sipping oldschool cocktails. Our resort, Hotel Il Pellicano oozed quintessential Italian glamour.

1 2 KAZUMI YOSHIDA Clarence House was founded in 1961 by New York interior designer Robin Roberts at a time when the design community was under the dominant influence of English designers, as well as English furniture and fabric design. There was little input—and almost no product—coming from the United States. It was this void that Roberts sought to fill. By the late seventies, Clarence House held sway over the design community, and Roberts had established himself as a larger-than-life figure in the interior design world. One thing was missing and Kazumi Yoshida filled that void. His arrival brought new energy and new direction—an inherent aesthetic that began Clarence House’s shift from archival influences into the stylized world of art and fashion. The team of Roberts and Yoshida established a new benchmark in creativity for the house. Yoshida still controls the evolution of each design from the initial concept to the finished product. Clarence House is available through The Martin Group at the BDC.

Webster & Company has debuted a new collection from London-based fabric house Evitavonni. The idea for the Tour Collection came to creative director Kate Erwich after a Sunday afternoon viewing of the 1942 classic film Now, Voyager starring Bette Davis. The collection is inspired by the old-school glamour of travel and focuses on geometric patterns and features their first-ever print: a warp printed silk named Star. Erwichâ€™s mood board is featured here.

DIG INN BY ASH NYC "Farm-to-Counter" Restaurant Debuts in Back Bay photography by christian harder
Founded by South Shore native Adam Eskin in 2011, Dig Inn with 11 locations in Manhattan and its first opening in Bostonâ€™s Back Bay, offers grain and salad bowls with regionally-sourced ingredients. In addition to partnering with local food sources like Siena Farms, the Kitchen Garden, and Mapleline Farms, Dig Inn commissioned our friends at ASH NYC (who also designed The Dean in Providence, Rhode Island) to design the stylishly unassuming spaces punched with color. More Boston locations are planned in Downtown Crossing and the Prudential Center for later this year.
After opening 11 stores in Manhattan, I’m thrilled to bring Dig Inn to my hometown, Boston, and expand our community through mindfully sourced food that celebrates the seasons. We’ll be serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner—a brand new concept for us— and hope that Dig Inn can be a place where everyone feels at home. ADAM ESKIN Dig Inn’s founder and CEO

In rug speak there are three constructions: hand-knotted wool and silk; hand-tufted wool and silk; and hand-knotted wool. Each is unabashedly luxe and will elevate any room—these rugs are truly works of art. Hutton will be a keynote speaker at Design Market on Thursday, October 6 at 10:30 a.m. in the seminar room with a reception to follow at Patterson, Flynn & Martin. A magical speaker and raconteur unparalleled, this event is not to be missed.
J.D. STARON RECYCLED SARI SILK RUGS More than half a billion women in the world wear saris. Currently, many of these garments are being repurposed, which gives them a second life. Recycling centers in India recover and collect the used saris, reprocess them, and generate handspun silk yarn. PHILLIP JEFFRIES 1 ORDER + 1 NEW TREE Phillip Jeffries has planted 14,000 trees in 2016 and hopes to reach 25,000 before the year’s end. For each order placed the company plants one tree.
