THERE is no need to wonder where the action is when you are with Chris Axelrod – he is the action! Whether he is dashing off to emcee the Detroit Music Awards, appearing alongside George Clooney in a film, hunting for movie props, or auctioning off glamorous vacation spots at fundraisers, Axelrod is always front and center. “I consider myself an impeccably dressed ringmaster, intent on carefully staging events filled with unexpected surprises,” he says. ¢

The richly painted mural in Axelrod’s entryway portrays scenes from his childhood home and surrounding gardens.

And nowhere is Axelrod a better ringmaster than in his dramatically eclectic Bratenahl condo. Every inch of the elaborately decorated 3,600-square-foot space is filled with his beloved antiques, valuable artwork and captivating curios. “The difference between a good room and a great room is guts,” the entertainer maintains. Axelrod attributes his decorating flair and love of heirloom pieces to his parents. As a youngster, he and his six siblings eagerly took part in family outings to look for rare antiquities. “At the age of 7, I could already distinguish between a Chippendale sofa, Hepplewhite chair, and an Eastlake sideboard,” Axelrod says proudly. His stately Cleveland Heights childhood home and palatial grounds are artfully depicted in the striking hand-painted mural that fills his entryway walls. His love of his family is everywhere; he even has seven golden lizards painted into the crystal-lit ceiling to represent his brothers and sister. “We are a very closely knit family, but I admit to being the black sheep,” he says. The discriminating eye he cultivated under his parents’ tutelage is perhaps nowhere more evident than in his formal living 10

room – “my French parlor” – filled with rare, elegant French antique furniture and objects d’art. Golden cupids are positioned in each of the room’s corners beneath the ceiling’s detailed crown molding. Several gold-leaf curio cabinets contain fine china and crystal pieces, including two prized bud vases his Southern-born grandmother had on the doors of her 1922 Packard. “If it is not the real deal, why bother?” asks Axelrod, who, with his siblings, runs the National Concession Company and the National Catering Company. “I’d rather wait until I can find a really good piece than settle for something else. Mediocre is not in my vocabulary.” Even though his down-filled sofas, love seats and fringed gossip chair are covered with the finest raw silk in soft pastels, Axelrod has no qualms about guests using these pieces. And his fine Meissen china and porcelain dishes and serving pieces, ornate silver goblets, and golden Grand Baroque silverware are used regularly at his lavish dinner parties. “No one was ever buried with two caskets, and I never saw a U-Haul accompany a funeral procession,” says Axelrod. “You can’t take it with you. All my beautiful things should be enjoyed. ¢

Axelrod’s elegant dining room, above and left, provides the perfect setting for his lavish dinner parties.

That’s the fun of it.” Although Axelrod’s living and dining rooms are extremely formal, he lets his hair down elsewhere in his home. His heavily draped bedroom, dubbed the “Emperor’s Suite,” is complete with Napoleon Bonaparte’s picture on the wall and a magnificent carved mahogany down-filled bed. This comfortable haven is an ideal place for the entertainer to relax. Yet, the “ringmaster” has turned portions of this room into a movie set. Inside his dressing room, a large shelf features a well-lit tableau. An antique snakeskin valise is draped with a leather riding crop and a handsome walking cane. Below it is a 1940s red silk smoking jacket from Halle Brothers department store. Axelrod’s sleeping quarters also contain his “second bedroom.” A decorated small golden box that will be used as his cremation urn sits on his golden-handled bureau. “When I jump out of the bed in the morning alive and well instead of in that small golden box, I realize how lucky I am and can’t wait to get on with my day,” he says. His adjoining cozy study features rare pre-Civil War 12

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Chayim,â&#x20AC;? toasts Axelrod, wearing a jacket festooned with 100 watches that once belonged to his dad.

burst of water he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the raincoat.â&#x20AC;? His most sentimental number is a black jacket festooned with 100 watches all set to the time his father Harry Axelrod passed away. The watches were from his dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large collection of timepieces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m constantly looking for new fabrics for my jackets and currently have 10 on order,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I provide job security for my inspired tailor and meticulous dry cleaner.â&#x20AC;? Along with his love of fine clothing, furniture and wine, Axelrod is passionate about Cadillacs. He owns four vintage Cadillacs, including a pink one with the word TICKLED on the license plate, and one FBI SWAT car. His most famous is the large black 1956 Cadillac limo that was driven in the funeral scene in the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godfatherâ&#x20AC;? movie. Axelrod, 53, bought the car as a present to himself for his 40th birthday. He drove his 1974 Cadillac hearse in November 2005 to his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was a teenage rock fan, I used to drive my opera-loving dad to death with my music, so it was thoroughly appropriate that I finished it as an adult,â&#x20AC;? he quips. With a wicker â&#x20AC;&#x153;cooling casketâ&#x20AC;? in his massage room that now stores towels but was originally designed to hold dead bodies during the Victorian era, personalized toilet paper in his restrooms, a collection of 200-year-old family crests from a French city hall, and a phrenology head in his studio, it is no wonder that Axelrodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto is â&#x20AC;&#x153;What will he do next?â&#x20AC;?

antique chic

Accessories that mix centuries and styles create a room with personality, says Mitchell Sotka.

by ellen schur brown

A GREEN marble ashtray with a diminutive dancer twirling at its edge looks sweet and graceful. But to some people, it’s terrifying. Many people are “afraid” of antiques, says Robin Greenwald, owner of Greenwald Antiques. “Antique collecting was always something expensive and intimidating to a lot of people,” she says. Rather than venture into the seemingly elitist and confusing world of antiques, she sees people buy a 12-piece set of furniture where everything matches. “People are relying on the designers at Crate&Barrel or Pottery Barn to tell them ‘this is good design,’” she laments. “What they end up with is a house that looks like a showroom.” “People are too safe when they’re decorating,” agrees Mitchell Sotka, owner of his eponymous store in Rocky River. People want their furniture, window treatments and accessories to go together, he continues, but the way they go about it is buying a ready-made room. “It looks so studied, so cookie-cutter.” Originality is only an antique store away … and you don’t have to become an expert collector in order to use period pieces to create depth, whimsy and personality.

how to do it One or two antiques is all it takes to transform a room, advises interior designer Jane Frankel. Look for French or Italian furniture, 20

a quick antique glossary antique means 100 years old, regardless of value vintage means anything old or used, such as art deco and Depression-era pieces or mid-century modern fine arts are sculpture or painting decorative arts are tchotchkes, porcelains, silver pieces, pottery, glass or enamelware. like an antique desk, chest or bookcase to break the mold. Swedish furniture, painted with folksy designs and featuring clean simple lines, is a good complement to a modern home, while Victorian furniture, which is heavy and ornate, doesn’t blend well. “Modern is so hard looking, it can be cold. It needs to be softened up and look more inviting,” says Frankel. Greenwald suggests one large piece as a focal point of the room, like a mirror or lamp. Don’t be afraid to mix time periods – put an antique vase on a modern cottage pine table, for example. A blown glass vase would look perfect on a granite countertop in a modern kitchen, injecting a bit of whimsy. An ornate chandelier works perfectly in a clean, contemporary room, adding warmth to a space otherwise dependent on recessed lighting. ¢

Find an antique mirror, tchotchke or lamp that you love. Antiques add depth and interest to modern décor.

“We’re really about mixing the centuries together,” says Sotka. “We combine things from different centuries and different parts of the world: Chinese pieces go with French, English American, Danish, and even African. They can all come together using color, proportion and the basic building blocks of design.” Sotka suggests using accessories, like African or Chinese porcelains, to punctuate a room. Small objects, always displayed in groups of three, are a designer’s favorite technique.

what’s in your basement? Frankel had one client who bought a traditional ornamental Arab dress on a trip to Israel. She framed it in a Lucite box and made it the centerpiece of a very contemporary room. “Maybe you bought an antique textile on a trip to Istanbul. Use it as a throw or have it made into pillows,” says Frankel. Antique rugs like kilim or Russian tribal rugs look great with modern furniture. Old pottery from Egypt or Israel or artifacts from a trip to Asia look fabulous as an accessory, she adds; just put them on a mantel, coffee table or bookcase. “It makes the room look interesting, so it doesn’t all look like it came right from the store,” she says.

buy the original Where do you think trends come from? Designers from stores like Arhaus or Anthropologie travel around the world, searching flea markets and fine arts dealers to create “the newest style.” “They buy antiques and reproduce them cheaply for the masses,” says Greenwald. “They’ve got the buzz, but we’ve got the original.” Yes, the reproduction ceramic jar at a chain story might be cheaper, but it’s also disposable, whereas antiques from a dealer hold their value. 22

It is possible to collect unique antiques on an “Ikea budget,” says store owner Robin Greenwald. “Even if you’re on an Ikea budget, you can still buy 18th- or 19th-century antiques,” Greenwald says. She recommends people start at flea markets, learning what has value and honing their taste. “We’ve been in business 50 years, and we’ve seen trends come and go, but the one thing that is tried and true is buy what you love,” she adds. “Don’t let somebody tell you what is good taste.”L

golden rules for serving 24-carat plated meals by arlene fine

30

| CLEVELAND JEWISH NEWS | JS T YL E | MAY 2010

Doug Katz, owner and executive chef of fire food & drink, offers the same plating tips to home chefs that he follows at his Shaker Square restaurant: Keep the plate simple, and have an odd number of foods (three is best) on a plate to give the dish visual interest. “Even numbers look too geometrically static and staid,” he advises. Katz recommends stacking foods to keep the edible elements tight in the center of the plate. When his chefs serve a filet, they put a dollop of mashed potatoes on the plate with an indentation in the center. The filet is placed in the indention and topped off with sautéed spinach. “Stacking allows diners to see the different colors and textures of their meal and encourages the flavors to complement each other,” he says. Salads are often more appealing when provide a touch of color. PHOTO / COURTESY EXECUTIVE CATERERS

“FOOD that’s beautiful to look at seems to taste better than food that isn’t,” notes famed chef Emeril Lagasse. Lagasse and professional chefs know that whether serving meals to a party of 18 or a party of one, people eat with their eyes first. That is why “Iron Chef America” judges always award points for “plating.” Providing eye candy at the dinner table is a fine art, similar to painting still lifes, arranging flowers, or blending musical notes, says Marigold Catering general manager Philip Goldberg. “When we prepare our plates for a sitdown dinner, we are as conscious of the color, design and texture of the food served as its taste,” he explains. “A dish might be absolutely delicious, but if the presentation lacks balance, unity, focus and flow, it will not make it to our table.” Stacking food adds visual interest, and veggies

the greens are intentionally stacked on top of each other for added height and seasonal fruits and vegetables ring the plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you toss everything in a bowl, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t visually appreciate the oranges, apples, strawberries and beets that may be nestled in your beautiful salad,â&#x20AC;? Katz explains. The white space on a plate rimming the food is a picture frame showcasing the meal and provides an ideal contrast. Choosing white plates is better than dark plates â&#x20AC;&#x153;because you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the serverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fingerprints,â&#x20AC;? he reveals. Those chocolate or raspberry swirls, stripes, squiggles and purĂŠe dots that often appear on well-defined plates come from simple squeeze bottles. Katz also recommends using shakers filled with sweetened cocoa or powdered sugar to add an extra finish to a dessert plate. When Executive Caterers executive chef Nunzio Scordo prepares a plate for an elegant event, he has his flavored oils handy. Along with edible garnishes like fresh herbs and minced chives, Scordo adorns his plated meals with drizzles of vibrantly colored oils. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mix neutral flavored oils like canola or light olive oil with seasonal herbs and purĂŠe the mixture in a blender for 30 plating 101 seconds,â&#x20AC;? he explains. quick tips from our experts The bright, appealing keep it simple oil â&#x20AC;&#x153;adds flavor and stack foods for visual appeal color when I drizzle it use colorful oils for garnish either on top or alongfruits and veggies provide color and texture side the main dish.â&#x20AC;? plate foods in groups of three There are lots of oranges, reds, yellows and greens from fruits and vegetables on plates served at SĂŠrgioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at University Circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look for colors that excite the senses and induce hunger,â&#x20AC;? says executive chef Ryan Alabaugh. In the warm spring and summer months, Alabaugh relies on locally grown fruits and vegetables like heirloom tomatoes, carrots, multi-colored peppers, snap peas and red cabbage to provide color, focus and vibrancy to dishes. In the fall and winter, he uses squash, pumpkins, apples, pomegranates and dry spices like paprika and saffron and chopped green herbs to add to his color palette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seasonal produce tends to provide culinary and visual harmony, and Northeast Ohio has a huge bounty of attractive produce,â&#x20AC;? he says. Alabaugh agrees with Katz: Keep everything as simple as possible â&#x20AC;&#x153;so the eyes can feast on the meal even before the other senses take over.â&#x20AC;? The chef knows he has served a picture-perfect plate when customers take photos of their meal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people swoon over the presentation or say the food is too gorgeous to eat, we are pleased,â&#x20AC;? Alabaugh says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen pictures of our meals on blogs and Facebook pages. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m waiting to walk into a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home and see one of our entrees on the walls. And why not?

united in the community,â&#x20AC;? she says. Many of Morellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extracurricular activities revolve around global studies, one of her biggest interests. For example, she recently performed a South African boot dance and a Chinese fan dance in school competitions. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fluent in Hebrew, is taking Chinese, and plans to learn either Farsi or Arabic this summer. Credit her international awareness to her parents. Her father Michael, a doctor whose mother was a Holocaust survivor from Poland, adds Ashkenazi flair to their home, while her Persian mother Lydia was raised in Israel and brings Sephardic traditions to the dinner table and to the songs the family sings during Shabbat. Besides India, Morell has traveled to sub-Saharan Africa and China on special school trips for which students had to apply. In South Africa, she learned about apartheid and did volunteer work. In China, she lived with a host family for two weeks, attending school with their daughter and getting lost in Hong Kong. But it was India where she learned the most, through interviews with doctors, journalists, teachers, bankers, entrepreneurs, and people living in the slums. Morellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother is thrilled with her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vigorous interest in the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Global studies is absolutely necessary,â&#x20AC;? Lydia says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The youth have to experience different cultures. And hopefully, with the new generation learning about each other and realizing how much they share, peace will be feasible.â&#x20AC;?L

modern and modest shopping with torah in mind by amy newman smith

NO MATTER who you are, shopping is all about the search for what makes you look your best. You have to find the colors and cuts that suit you in the fabrics that appeal to you at the price you’re willing to pay. Observant Jewish women who follow the Torah’s dictate to be modest simply shop with an extra set of requirements.

good hunting Following an age-old tradition doesn’t mean your look can’t be current if you know a few tricks and are willing to shop around. University Heights resident Shoshana Kaufman says she can find pieces for her wardrobe at mainstream stores including Target, Old Navy and Nordstrom. Other Orthodox shoppers are fans of Talbots, Ann Taylor Loft and White House/Black Market. Cleveland is also home to two boutiques catering specifically to modest dressers: Simcha’s Spectacular and Jill’s Unique Boutique. Jill Weiszner, owner of Jill’s Unique Boutique, stocks a mix of clothes designed for the modest market, as well as those

you might find in other boutiques or department stores, provided they keep within the parameters of Jewish tradition. Weiszner says the frum (Orthodox) designers she buys from are “so up-todate,” they are often ahead of American designers when it comes to trends. “They are looking at Europe and Israel,” for inspiration, which keeps them on the cutting edge, she finds.

go with the seasons As trends change, frum shoppers may have more or less luck shopping the malls. At the moment, color trends are leaning toward deeper, darker shades including lots of gray and chocolate brown. Also, cuts are more modest across the board, Weiszner notes, making shopping an easier experience. Of course, that’s not always the case. A season marked by short hemlines and eye-popping colors might be challenging for the modest dresser, but it doesn’t have to mean an empty closet.

easy fixes Frum fashionista Kaufman says it’s a snap to make sleeves to wear under a sleeveless or short-sleeved blouse or dress using a pair of matching or contrasting color tights; all you need is a pair ¢

of scissors. You can also buy fabric sleeves on sites like www.koshercasual.com to make skin-bearing clothes instantly modest. eBay can be a boon for finding long-sleeved tops out of season, Kaufman notes. Both local Orthodox boutiques offer layering shells in a variety of colors and fabrics, or they can be ordered online. A good seamstress with reasonable rates can also be key. A seamstress can sew up slits or add kick pleats, bring up the length on too-long skirts and change necklines on special-occasion wear. This may all sound like a lot of work, but Kaufman says following the laws of modesty, or tsniut, “gives me the freedom not to think so much about my appearance. I pay attention when I’m shopping. I pay attention in the morning when I get dressed. But I don’t have to think about my body all day long.”

fit for a queen Beau Brummel, who set fashion standards for kings and lords in Regency England, famously quipped, “If people turn to look at you on the street, you are not well dressed.” The concept of tsniut makes the same point, allowing observant women the free40

dom to be attractive without attracting superficial attention. With a little bit of effort and creativity, a woman can keep her own personal style – be it trend-setting, all-business, or soft and artistic – and still keep the Torah in mind. L

tsniut: the basics The standards for modest dress for observant women vary from community to community, but the basic rules are: j Skirts should be long enough to cover the knee even when you sit down. j Sleeves should cover the elbow even when you stand up. j Necklines should not be below the collarbone. j Married women’s hair should be covered with a hat, scarf or sheitel (wig). It’s important to understand that tsniut isn’t a dress code; it’s an attitude, a way of being in the world that applies to both men and women. An outfit can fit the “tsniut checklist” but still not be modest, and a modestly dressed person can act in an immodest fashion. It’s much more than what meets the eye! L

‘family sedan’ brings

the sexy back

by douglas j. guth

The 2011 Hyundai Sonata’s sleek, light body adds to the vehicle’s fuel efficiency as well as its looks.

SOME may call the 2011 Hyundai Sonata a “family sedan” due to its reasonable price and impressive 23/35-mpg city/highway EPA fuel economy estimate. However, the new-from-the-ground-up Sonata (base price: $19,195) brings more to the highway than good gas mileage and a generously sized back seat for the kids. Indeed, the restyled Sonata proves that

sedans can be sexy, too. It starts with an expressive, almost rounded exterior that’s been trimmed down for 2011. The new Hyundai’s sleek, lighter body includes a sweet-looking upturned grille (which the manufacturer calls “fluidic”) and a chrome strip that runs from the headlights along the crest of the front fender. ¢ CLEVELAND JEWISH NEWS
