LORO PIANA Revamping the interiors of Villa Cima, located within Villa d’Este and on the shores of Lake Como, has been one of the most challenging and rewarding projects undertaken by Loro Piana Interiors. Built in 1815, the tiny, graceful villa has become a soughtafter retreat for the cognoscenti. Loro Piana Interiors refreshed all the interiors and the villa’s beautiful terraces, respecting the building’s charming original architecture. Velvets, linens, silks and a touch of cashmere, all emblematic of our unique textile heritage, were employed in a palette of reds and burnt shades that resonate with the villa’s exterior walls, while blues and malachite evoke the hues of the lake.

Summer comes later to Maine, and fall sets in earlier. Few designers understand this better than Yarmouth, Maine– based designer LEANDRA FREMONT-SMITH. For a family with three young sons, Fremont-Smith transformed an expansive shingle-style house, nestled in the summer town of Northeast Harbor, on Mount Desert Island, into a vividly colored, pattern-rich encapsulation of all the pleasures of the season. Full of natural textures, printed fabrics and patterned wallpapers, and 12

treasures created by local artisans, the house is serene yet energetic, a sanctuary that also opens up to its beautiful surroundings, and never succumbs to the expected or the bland. The literal culmination of the house’s fresh vision is the children’s media room, located atop the turret, which Fremont-Smith has transformed into a red-white-andblue fantasia under a custom tented ceiling.



Our new Portfolio collection, fresh off the loom, features 26 new flatweave rugs, woven to order and fully customizable.

Andrew Fisher’s training as a sculptor and jewelry designer is apparent in the bold, sculptural quality of the bronze pieces he crafts for the FISHER WEISMAN COLLECTION. The Acanthus Minor Desk is a prime example, with its dramatic carved bronze legs ending in elegant acanthus leaves that embrace a millwork top that can be sheathed in a variety of wood veneers, leather, or lacquer.



BARRY GORALNICK took a musical approach in designing his latest lighting pieces for Currey & Company, looking to the French horn for inspiration. Goralnick gives the flared bell shape a sleek, clean update to create the Julien six-armed chandelier and coordinating sconce. The chandelier’s gracefully tapered stems, refined detailing, and polished nickel finish update a classic shape, making it ideal for contemporary rooms; the Julien sconces are certified for damp locations. 18

HOLLAND & SHERRY In creating her J. Banks Collection of rugs for Holland & Sherry, designer Joni Vanderslice looked to both her native Lowcountry and exotic Tanzania, which she often visits. Inspired by rustling palm leaves, rushing water, and trellis patterns, the 11 designs are available in several different rug qualities, all of which incorporate the functionality and performance required for commercial settings as well as high traffic areas in the home. Each design reflects the J. Banks philosophy of bringing the glamour of the resort experience to every project, whether hospitality or home. B R OW S E T HE C OL L EC T I ON

For Palm Beach- and Atlanta-based designer DANIELLE ROLLINS , southern hospitality is no mere clichĂŠ, and sharing is a way of life. The house she designed not just for herself, but so that she could welcome and entertain family, friends, and colleagues, becomes the fulcrum of her philosophy of abundance, generosity, dazzling color and pattern, and, of course, festive feasts to be shared.

OYSTER BAY When popular Charleston eatery 167 Raw needed to move to new quarters, the owner turned to KATHLEEN HAY, who had worked on the restaurant’s Nantucket branch. She devised an interior that honors the history of the space— repurposed millwork, original flooring, and exposed brick—while incorporating contemporary elements. The new location, in the city’s historic downtown, is three times the size of the original, and has already generated long lines of eager patrons.

LANSERRING Lanserring presents Saltaire, our concept for luxury in a new age, a design that celebrates the character of architecture and seeks to redefine the meaning of luxury for a sustainably-minded contemporary family. Saltaire feels airy and informal, and finds its ideal home in this repurposed industrial space, dating back to the 1800s. A sense of the outdoors and fresh air is pulled in through a sheltered winter garden, and the original brick buttresses of the factory serve as the perfect punctuation points for our installations. The Saltaire pieces feel harmonious but distinct, coherent but individual.

Arles by Retorra is a new pattern developed to capture the majesty of great 18th-century tapestry weaving. The illusion of this carpet is that it appears to have been made for the wall, but is constructed using our Dragon weave to create a floor covering with remarkable strength.

In a setting of staggering natural splendor, how do you create a garden that complements—but doesn’t compete with— its surroundings? That was the challenge that DUSTIN MOORE and TODD COLE of Strata Landscape Architecture faced on the Big Island of Hawaii. Their design is a modern twist on the traditional Hawaiian garden, pared down, restrained, and employing a limited range of plants that echoes and amplifies the aesthetic of the house itself.

garden. Colorful, tropical plants were installed near the core of the home, with the plantings transitioning to a more drought tolerant palette on the edges, so the garden blends into the natural environment. Drama is confined to the stunning, oversized pool which incorporates a large shelf, giving the illusion that the chaises are floating on water and creating the ideal spot to take in the dramatic vistas and the infinite sea.




As his new book makes clear, MATTHEW PATRICK SMYTH is a master of composition, scale, and color. So perhaps it’s not surprising that he almost became a professional photographer. In this excerpt, he muses on the connection between design and photography.

differently and think harder….As a photographer, I love the same things I do as an interior designer: scale, composition, line, color, texture, and, above all, balance. Surprisingly, I can trace the arc o f the pictures I take today back to the elevations I have drawn since my student days at the Fashion Institute of Technology….So much of what I do as an interior designer—and so much of what I see as a photographer—is ultimately about line, form, and silhouette. But it is also about finding ways to memorialize transformation and change. The eye constantly evolves. So do we.”

n his second book, through a designer’s eye:

a focus on interiors, Matthew Patrick Smyth celebrates how rediscovering his love of photography in the age of the digital phone camera has inspired the decoration of his most recent projects. These projects include a historic house in Palm Beach by architect Maurice Flato, a Park Avenue duplex filled with a centuries-spanning blend of new and inherited pieces, a Tribeca loft that brings in the world through an infusion of exoticism, and Smyth’s own, never-before-seen country house, a 1970s ‘deck house’ that he’s beautifully remastered for his life today. Through his designer’s eye, and through the camera lens, Smyth constantly searches for that special design

something—a handcrafted detail, an insight into history, a sense of surroundings, a moment of drama, a particular atmosphere—to spark a fresh way of thinking about how to put together interiors that suit and express their occupants. Smyth believes that every space should have a point of view. In an ever-changing world, through various lenses and frames, Smyth pursues harmonies of scale, composition, line, form, silhouette, telling detail, and, above all, balance as he consistently strives to create homes that exemplify comfort, welcome, and beauty.

“From the first time I picked up a camera as a 17-year-old, I was excited by the way that it pushed me to look at details, to tighten my field of vision on the moment right in front of me. The camera made me see 78

Over the last two decades, I’ve found so many incredible things. When you call his shop. Bill will answer “Bill’s Used Furniture”.  It’ll put a smile on your face. 

DIANA VREELAND I would so love to have been a fly on the wall, a sponge soaking up everything she embodied: style, grace, wit, and manners. One of my favorite quotes is from her: “You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. I’m not talking about a lot of clothes.” Here she is at a fashion show sitting next to a young Jane Fonda.
