INSPIRED DESIGN

PHOTOGRAPHY BY JAVIER ROMERO (PORTRAIT).

AT NEW YORK SPACES, there are few things we love more than good design. And for our biannual issue of The Goods, we get to scour the shops and peruse the showrooms to assemble a highly-curated selection of the best New York, and the design world at large, has to offer. In this issue, we cover Michael Berman’s elegant new California coast-inspired collection at Theodore Alexander and the fun and flirty designs by Red Hook-based ceramicist Suzanne Sullivan. We also head over to Hudson Street to get to know the powerhouse women behind the minimalist furniture company, Egg Collective. And considering ordinary is never a strong part of our vocabulary, we delve into the ethos behind Moooi—Marcel Wanders’ design fantasyland-made-real. In Beacon, we tour an old 19th-century silk factory turned chic weekend loft and back in town we visit the New York Design Center and go daft lusting after the electric blend of fun and functional designs at Julien Chichester and Mr. Brown London. This is one of our favorite issues of the year, and we hope you enjoy the narrative as much as we do!

CITY LIGHTS Things we love, from Szechuan sizzle to legendary jazz BY DE BOR AH L . MARTIN

LE JAZZ HOT This month, Ralph Pucci International hosts an evening of music in their New York showroom to benefit Jazz House Kids. The fundraiser will feature performances by Grammy Award-winning bassist, band leader, and composer Christian McBride, and Esperanza Spalding, the 2011 Best New Artist Grammy winner. Jazz House Kids, based in Montclair, New Jersey, is celebrating 15 years of providing jazz instruction for children in underserved communities. In October, the organization honored legendary drummer Roy Haynes (seated, above, right), with a lifetime achievment award, and presented him with a bust carved by Ralph Pucci International's master sculptor, Michael Evert (above, left). "Jazz is the soundtrack," says Ralph Pucci. "It is authentic and organic." For more information and tickets visit jazzhousekids.org; 973.744.2273

stunning interiors in its 30-year history. For the first time, the projects of principal Joe Nahem are collected into a beautiful coffee table-worthy tome. Fifteen of the designer's projects, including a Stanford White townhouse, a 1960s-era modernist home by architect Annabelle Selldorf ( below), a family home in Connecticut, and a landmarked Central Park West apartment. Nahem, together with his design team, is known for his highly-curated interiors, incorporating one-of-a-kind antiques, sumptuous materials, artisanal finishes, and surprising details. Written by Anthony Iannacci, with a foreword by Robert Downey Jr., the book is a beautiful addition to a design library. abramsbooks.com

TRAGEDIA D'AMORE The controversial but exceedingly beautiful Madama Butterfly, by Giacomo Puccini, returns to the Metropolitan Opera this season in a production by Anthony Minghella. The opera, which has been criticized for its imperialist overtones and its characterization of Japanese women, is also one of the composer's most sophisticated scores. This production, which first debuted at the Met in 2006, stars Hui He and Ermonela Jaho in the role of the tragic geisha, Cio-Cio-San, and Roberto Aronica and Luis Chapa as her callous lover, Pinkerton.

IN 2011, STEPHANIE BEAMER, Crystal Ellis, and Hillary Petrie opened Egg Collective—an idea born from a shared love of the scale and concept-to-fruition experience of making furniture. “We moved to New York with the intention of giving ourselves nine months to design and prototype a body of work,” says Ellis. Less than a year later, the trio—who met while attending architecture school at Washington University in St. Louis—debuted their designs at ICFF and promptly won a Best New Designer award. Now, the company’s woodshop—located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn’s Industry City—is joined by an ultra-chic showroom on Hudson Street in Manhattan. Egg’s minimalist visual language is encapsulated in a striking collection of furniture, accessories, lighting, and more— handcrafted by them in their woodshop or made in collaboration with local fabricators. Seemingly austere brass-and-marble hexagonal side tables, blackened-steel cocktail tables, and hair-on-hide upholstered side chairs exude a richness at odds with the simple materials like wood, metal, glass, stone, and leather the designers are drawn to. “We grew up in the 90s and early 2000s, when mass production really started

peaking” explains Ellis. “Our designs are a reaction to that—we want to make things that stand the test of time.” Metals are chosen for their ability to develop a desirable patina over time, with live metal finishes often purposely left on products. Material integrity is key to Egg’s ethos—and really, what is more beautiful than an old worn leather sofa or a piece of brass that exhibits the traces of the hands that have held it over the years? “People often feel detached from their objects

because of the way they are made—so therefore they feel disposable,” explains Ellis. “We want to create pieces that are an investment and will outlast us, and which will hopefully be handed down from generation to generation.” Considering the name Egg Collective stems from the idea of an egg being the perfect natural minimal form with something inside, yet to be hatched—we cannot wait to see what they conceive of next.

TRNK'ED Carefully curated home furnishings from TRNK create a thoroughly modern space BY K AITLIN CL ARK

Few people are able to catapult personal passions into full-blown, successful businesses, but that’s exactly what TRNK co-founders, Tariq Dixon and Nick Nemechek, have done. The duo founded TRNK in 2013, after working together at Gilt Groupe, with a vision to offer internationally sourced items for a gentleman’s home to create an environment that feels “collected, not decorated.” With furnishings ranging from delicate Hasami Japanese porcelain to the minimalist simplicity of Shaker, TRNK’s style is clean, uncluttered and welcoming, with plenty of texture and detail. To boot, TRNK offers furnishings and decor for every room in the house, from bedroom to kitchen—tabletop and

lighting included—to other important, but often overlooked details, like shelving and storage, for a fully cohesive, masculine aesthetic. The pair got their start hunting for vintage finds all over the Hudson Valley, and researched one-of-a-kind online boutiques, like Etsy, eBay, and Apartment Therapy’s Classifieds, for buried vintage treasures. Not straying too far from their roots, Dixon and Nemechek still source a substantial amount of TRNK’s products from antique shops around Brooklyn and New York City. Dixon and Nemechek recently expanded to include the TRNK Collection, their first-ever self-designed product line. The inaugural release is their Truss line of furniture, a seating collection, which embodies a

straightforward, sleek design aesthetic, and remains committed to American manufacturing. After visiting factories around the United States, Dixon and Nemechek settled on Los Angeles as the manufacturing homebase. Each piece is made to order, with more than 20 upholstery options, including the brand’s signature fabric and leather combination. With art, accents and statement furniture for every room, TRNK is an edited one stop shop and a truly one-ofa-kind online destination. SEE RESOURCES

Jung Lee and husband Josh Brooks entered the event design industry in 2002, and 15 years later, the couple’s hard work and passion have resulted in a thriving business of their own. Jung Lee NY, the duo’s retail store in New York City’s hip NoMad neighborhood, specializes in luxury items for home and entertaining, and it’s nothing short of spectacular. Offering elegant furnishings and one-of-a-kind, exclusively designed entertaining and decorating essentials from around the world, the loft-like store space is arranged as a series of rooms, transporting the customer into a unique and dynamic dream home. “I essentially wanted a store that I wanted to shop in,” explains Jung. “I wanted a place where I could feel inspired.”

Jung’s passion for event design is reflected in both her online and NYC concept shop, and every piece she carries infuses everyday living with inspiration from her own travels around the world. “My design inspiration comes from different cities and parts of the world, from Europe to Asia and beyond,” Jung says. “I’m very tapped into the art scene and fashion, so it’s really an amalgamation of those worlds. Inspiration is constant; it overflows and we’re affected by everything around this world between the visuals as well as the music and the arts.” Jung and Josh’s love for interior design and home furnishings is, of course, reflected in their own home, which Jung says is still a work in progress. “It’s still a house coming

ost creative types are excessive hoarders of inspirational images; collected from magazines, books, and the things they see every day in their travels. Jarvis Wong (center, circled in red), the designer behind uber-chic JARVISSTUDIO, is no exception. With a background in fashion and architecture, Wong’s mood board includes everything from Valentino couture to a public works building in Singapore. “Facades of buildings fascinate me. The geometry translates into everything we do. Even in fashion.” Wong continues, “Look at this corset. It is structural and constricting but also liberating and sexy at the same time.” To take in his collection of images is to travel the world. A decaying palazzo in Rome, brutalist facades, classical doors, space age creations, layered next to fashion from Balenciaga and Celine, and black-and-white photography. Menswearinspired fabrics from Holland & Sherry lend a Savile Row-with-a-twist approach to design. “It’s important to have a classical discipline. When you design something abstract you must have a solid foundation, then you can subtract elements to make it modern. You must have a starting point.” Like many designers, Wong speaks of his craft as a painter would describe the act of painting. “You must peel away the layers and discover how we actually see. A palette comes together, and creates the mood, the ambiance, and we build from there. How we see the outside world becomes part of the design.”

SHOWROOM STYLE

COAST TO COAST STYLE California designer Michael Berman creates a new collection for Theodore Alexander that recalls the casual elegance of his home state BY DE BOR AH L . MARTIN

“Designing this collection was a dream come true for me,” says renowned California designer Michael Berman. “The people at Theodore Alexander basically said, ‘design what’s in your right brain and we will make it happen.’” He took them to heart, and designed Califolio, which debuted this year. The collection, which includes case goods, upholstered pieces, lighting, and wall art, is inspired by Berman’s love of midcentury and contemporary design, his Californiainfused aesthetic, and his passion for the elegance of classic cars. “I come from Detroit originally and my father was in the automotive industry. The design of a 1967 Ford Thunderbird, or the jewel-like handle on a 1959 Chrysler Imperial—these things also inspire me.” Theodore Alexander has a long tradition of guest designer programs, but they had a very East Coast focus. President Neill Robinson says, “We wanted to add a West Coast, California cool vibe and Michael’s aesthetic was a perfect fit.” Robinson says that the casual luxury of Berman’s work

was something the company was missing, and the fact that the company is vertical contributed to the success of the line. “We don’t outsource anything, the manufacturing plant in Vietnam is part of the company, so we were really able to bring Michael’s vision to life,” says Robinson. The pieces have an artisanal quality, with open-grain, hand-rubbed finishes, antiqued bronze accents, and sexy curvilinear shapes. The Incline chair, upholstered in rich, emerald green leather, recalls the beauty and tailored craftsmanship of luxury car upholstery. The Washi console is a handsome walnut sideboard with striking inlaid brass details across the length of the streamlined cabinet, in the style of Japanese calligraphy. “I could see this piece in an entry hall, or a pair of them on either side of a fireplace,” says Berman. He continues, “I’m really inspired by American modernism and ingenuity, and with all my designs, I look to the past to interpret the present and the future.” SEE RESOURCES

amie Pabst left her position as an investor relations professional at a hedge fund to combine a passion for music with holistic wellness by using music technology as a tool for multisensory experiences. So when she bought a weekend loft in a former 19th-century silk factory Fishkill Creek in Beacon, New York, her intention, she says, “was to make it feel like an open and holy space as well as a home, but also maximize camaraderie—offering it as a space to friends and the broader community to explore this modality.” To create that flexible, dual-purpose environment, she hired another former refugee from finance, Gabriela Gargano. As soon as the women began talking about the aesthetics of the loft, it became clear that, other than music and health and wellness, there was another sensibility to take into account: Pabst’s predilection for Art Deco. “It became a puzzle for me to figure out and make sure it didn’t look frenetic.” Gargano began unifying the L-shaped space by toning down the shiny red oak floors with a gray wash and painting the white walls blue-gray. Gargano and Pabst loved the exposed brick walls, so those were not touched. 58

N E W YO R K S PAC E S . CO M

When they began the shopping process, client and designer took a three-pronged approach, aiming for subtle, rather than literal, references to the tripartite program. Art Deco-style is hinted at by gold-framed chairs with black leather cushions in the dining room, art that riffs on diamond shapes in the living room, and a Deco-style vanity and mirror in the powder room, which is adorned with pin-up girl art by Antonio Vargas (of WWII-era Varga Girl fame). Gargano invoked her client’s love of music in the library with artworks by Max Steven Grossman (who creates music book covers), a vintage record player, a bare bulb chandelier, and tufted sofa—elements that, says Pabst, are “characteristic of a rock ‘n’ roll vibe.” Finally, says Gargano, “The media room has a soothing blue-gray sectional and is more serene and Zen, less bright and colorful than other spaces in the home.” Pillows of Indian textiles and a coffee table whose base nods to Balinese design add an Eastern spin. Throughout, the emphasis was also on lightweight furniture that is easily moved to transform the loft for Pabst’s sound gatherings. “It’s been wonderful to bring the space to life,” says Pabst. “It wouldn’t be utilized to capacity if I didn’t open it up to people.”.

n the world of luxury textiles and wall coverings for the home, Schumacher—founded in 1889—reigns supreme. The company’s long history of supplying the most elegant homes in the world with the finest fabrics, rugs, and wall coverings, has made them one of the most recognizable names in the textiles industry. The firm has collaborated with top designers such as Miles Redd, Celerie Kemble, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, and Mary McDonald, with architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Josef Frank, and other luminaries such as Cecil Beaton, Saul Steinberg, and Elsa Schiaparelli. One of their newest collections lives up to their luxurious history. Plume, introduced this year, is made from hand-gathered feathers that are collected in Asia, and painstakingly applied to paper panels. The feathers—ranging in colors from the deepest iridescent jewel tones to black and white and neutrals—are never plucked from the birds. Schumacher’s creative director, Dara Caponigro, says, “The natural colors of the feathers, their luster, cannot be replicated in a man-made material. The colors are stunning and completely natural—everything from neutrals to turquoise and citrine. They are really the ultimate luxury.” Caponigro has always had an affinity for natural materials, and in particular has a connection to our feathered friends. “When I was about six years old, we lived across the street from a place that had pigeons and birds and I had a feather collection.” Caponigro says that although walls made of feathers might seem very high maintenance, the wall coverings actually can be gently wiped with a damp cloth, or dusted, as long as it is done in the direction that the feathers are aligned. She says, “The thing I learned about feathers—besides their spectacular beauty—was that they are virtually indestructible. I washed them and they would go right back to their shape.” A former editor at such publications as House Beautiful and Veranda, Caponigro has helped to revitalize the venerable fabric house. She has an editor’s eye when it comes to envisioning how the firm’s designs will be used. “Plume would be lovely in a powder room, making it into a jewel box, or an entryway to really make an impact. The wall coverings are conversation pieces, and are wonderful for public spaces.” SEE RESOURCES

furnishings and lighting from both Julian Chichester and Mr. Brown in livable vignettes: A Julian Chichester Avellino bench and Kelso wing chair flank a Garcon coffee table topped with a backgammon board, illuminated by a sculptural Mr. Brown Orion chandelier, for example. “With our single showroom destination, designers can see more of both Julian Chichester and Mr. Brown in New York than anywhere else in the country, outside of High Point Market,” says Schleuse. “Additionally, custom is an important part of our business. Presenting both Julian Chichester and Mr. Brown in one space gives designers the freedom to combine forms and finishes that they wouldn’t otherwise realize if the two were separated. Both brands in a single space means more options, more creativity.” Right now, more than half of what’s on display is new—the Smarti coffee table, brass-accent Brooklyn collection, and smooth Delon pieces from Julian Chichester, coupled with the retro-esque Beatrix daybed and mod Durrant chair from Mr.

Brown, to name just a few. Finishes range from églomisé, faux shagreen and dyed vellum, to newer, proprietary brass, zinc and bronze. The remaining inventory is the design classics, such as the Dakota table and Storm, Deneuve, and Danish cabinets from Julian Chichester, as well as the brand’s popular upholstery collection. Mr. Brown presents its popular lighting styles as well as its emerging collection of beds, such as the St. Tropez canopy. Further adding an element of lifestyle is the showroom’s revolving collection of art—including pieces from furniture designer Julian Chichester’s own personal collection (a modern work featuring the Sex Pistols being one remarkable example). In mid-October, it was paintings by abstract artist Gabriela Tolomei in collaboration with dealer Arlene Angard on display. “Art elevates and complements our furniture, because Julian and ‘Mr. 70

Suzanne Sullivan is creating utilitarian—and beautiful— art in Red Hook 72

“I WAS VERY LUCKY,” says ceramicist Suzanne Sullivan, “I grew up on the West Coast in the 70s. My mother made my clothing; we picked berries. It was a very idyllic life and I was exposed to handmade and utilitarian crafts at a very young age.” Sullivan took those lessons to heart and now, in her studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn, she crafts beautiful, handmade vessels and dinnerware in graphic black, navy, and pink, with splashes of gold. Says Sullivan, “I use those classic colors because I think color can distract from the appreciation of the form. And I add gold because it is so special.” Sullivan is inspired by the black, white, and gold of the classic designs of Fornasetti when it comes to coloration. “Sometimes you have to be fabulous!” She is fascinated by the transformative qualities of heat. “The gold glaze is blood red when you apply it and then the heat transforms it into something else completely.” Sullivan’s pieces are either slab-built or pinched, and she finds the process of forming her vessels and plates to be meditative. “When you are pinching and forming the clay, it becomes a sculptural process. And it’s very personal. Your fingerprints become part of the finished work.” The organic shapes are then hand-painted with graphic designs that are often inspired by art, architecture, and textiles. She says that the forms dictate the patterns, except when they don’t. “Sometimes I have a pattern that I really love, so I create a vessel that will work with it.” Sullivan finds joy in the work she does, creating beautiful objects for everyday use. “I believe that all objects should be art from a doorknob to a drinking glass. If you have it in your life, it should be special.” SEE RESOURCES

DESIGN LESS ORDINARY At Moooi, in NoMad’s burgeoning design district, everything is about living a life extraordinary by NICOLE HADDAD 74

hen it comes to Marcel Wanders, the only thing to expect is the unexpected. The Dutch interiors and product designer, art director, and influencer first gained international recognition for his cutting-edge Knotted Chair in 1996. Today, Wanders continues his exploration of innovation in design with Moooi, the design label and store he co-founded in 2001. Moooi, which joins a slew of ultra-chic stores in Manhattan’s burgeoning NoMad design district, has only four other locations, in concept-savvy cities such as Tokyo, Amsterdam, Stockholm, and London. Entering the store feels more like migrating into the functional realm of a design lover’s wonderland rather than the classic, puttogether showroom. Provocative art adorns the walls, cabinets are a work of art, a sofa sits on a platform, and dangling lights appear on the verge of dancing. And that is as it should be, says Jan-Willem Poels, Moooi’s Country Manager in the USA. “When Marcel Wanders and

OPPOSITE: Perch Light Branch by Umut Yamac is one of six versions the designer created—each is made of folded paper and brass and swings when touched.

Casper Vissers founded Moooi, the idea that drove Wanders was to have a collection of his own projects while also inviting young designers to become a part of the collection. In essence, Moooi was created as a platform for designers to realize their dreams, and to realize them in product form.” And true to form, the original goal remains. Moooi now carries the work of over 60 designers, many of who have more than one design with the brand. The genius behind Wanders’ approach is his belief in promoting creativity. “He often gives designers a chance at a very early stage in their career,” says Poels. For example, Bertjan Pot’s Random Light, introduced into the collection in 2002, propelled the design into an on-demand orbit. Similarly, Maarten Baas’ Smoke Armchair (it truly is furniture finished with fire), has become an iconic fixture at Moooi. And most recently, Umut Yamac’s captivating Perch Light design, which Wanders’ spotted at the London Design Festival, has joined the family of intriguing wares. While Wanders still designs products for the brand, the biggest difference in recent years is the growing realm of the showroom’s possibilities. While previoulsy one could sprinkle individual pieces throughout different settings, today, designers can beautifully outfit entire projects through Moooi. And why not? The very definition of Moooi in Dutch is beautiful—with an extra o added in to make a point. Point taken! SEE RESOURCES 76

REVIVING TRADITIONS Ancient weaving techniques meet a palette of fresh colorways and bespoke designs in the handmade, eco-friendly rugs by Nasiri Carpets by DANINE ALATI

A

t a street bazaar in Tehran, Iran, in 2000, Nader Nasiri happened upon a man selling Persian rugs, which were very old and selling for what he thought was a price well above their worth. He purchased the rugs anyway, and ended up selling them for far more than the original price. That led to a passion and a lucrative business: Later that year in New York he launched Nasiri Carpets, which sells high-quality, handmade, eco-friendly rugs including antiques, reproductions, and modern varieties. “We only carry very unique, one-of-a-kind pieces in stock,” Nasiri explains. “This way the clients get exactly what they want—bespoke service with endless options for size, color, weave, texture, and design.” Born and raised in Tehran, Nasiri opened a new showroom in the New York Design Center this past spring after waiting it out until a suitable space in the building became available. Now situated among the best of the best in the design community, the company—which started out as a dealer of antique carpets— designs everything in-house, using ancient weaving techniques 78

N E W YO R K S PAC E S . CO M

and only natural dyes and organic materials to produce these lavish carpets in the Mazandaran Province in Iran, an area with a rich history of rug making. “We continue to honor their traditions by applying the same techniques and making rugs in the same region,” Nasiri notes, adding that his socially conscious company has partnered with GoodWeave to demonstrate its commitment to not using any child, forced, or bonded labor. While he says it’s difficult to choose a favorite design or pattern, Nasiri cites the Mazandaran Collection as noteworthy because it “highlights the minimal sophistication that existed long before the modern era.” Inspired by the kilims woven by Mazandaran women, these rugs were created for hundreds of years solely for private use and for bridal dowries rather than the general public; they were just discovered about 15 years ago and are now reproduced by Nasiri. Besides the handwoven and hand-knotted rugs for which the company has become known, it has also started offering broadloom. Nasiri says that he will continue to push innovation by toying with new weaving methods. He also hopes someday to expand and collaborate with designers and artists to offer more palettes and patterns, and he plans to release a fresh Art Deco line early next year. SEE RESOURCES
