Twin M is a coincidental collaboration. Jill Moriarty had been creating her “Bell Mare” merino sweater designs for one year, and Matt Moran had ventured from making saddles to totes and belts. They found inspiration in one another’s designs and began creating a “New West” look, completely sourced and finished in the West.

After graduating from design school, Westerngrace founder Jesse Call designed for Cruel Girl and then interned with the “Rhinestone Rembrandt”, Manuel. Now, Call is now making her own mark in western apparel—apparel made of fine quality fabrics, handmade patterns and hand-stitching in every garment. Her clothing evokes the Western spirit and culture, from working cowboys to history-making cowgirls. And, as only the West would have it, Westerngrace is proudly made in Colorado, USA.

Wood Art

Ron designs using native woods such as aspen and lodgepole pine married with ideas from traditional furniture styles. Elements such as burled logs for claw feet and curved limbs for Queen Anne legs are likely to show up in a WildeWood design. Further inspiration comes from nature, Ron says. “I may be driving along and see a tree with an interesting limb or shape, and I’ll design a creation around that particular piece of wood.”

The 2014 WDC Exhibit + Sale debuts the inaugural Designer Show House STORY BY SUZANNA CULLEN HAMILTON

The 2014 Western Design Conference Exhibit + Sale includes many new changes to the longstanding and esteemed show in Jackson Hole. This year the show will incorporate a stronger focus on home and fashion. One of the most significant additions this year includes the Designer Show House on the exhibit floor. Montana woodworker and builder Justin Palmer will create a timber-framed home including shingles made from cedar that was part of The Big Burn in 1910. “I’ve held onto this red cedar root for years waiting for the right project, and this is it,” says Palmer. Designers will display not only their own talents and wares in the rooms, but one-of-a-kind pieces by exhibiting artists will also be incorporated into the spaces. With a strong and diverse group of participants, the Designer Show House promises to add an exciting spark to the show.

FIGHTING BEAR ANTIQUES


The New West Owner Kate Binger opened Dwelling in Jackson in 2011 to reflect her design style of “Transitional Eclectic.” Having lived in California, Binger quickly learned the value of researching all aspects of design. She travels throughout the year and finds inspiration in a myriad of styles. Clean lines, rich textures, and vibrant pops of color are Binger’s signature elements. Dwelling is a boutique gift, furniture and interior design studio specializing in new construction, remodels, furnishings, artwork and accessories. The featured artwork is provided by a local Jackson gallery, Astoria Fine Art.

BallouDawg’s design style and philosophy include organic elements, and range from modern rustic to the unexpected. Their creations include furniture, functional art and sculpture, many of which incorporate unique accents such as copper and antler. Linda Rumsey’s father was a blackjack dealer at The Wort Hotel, and today she and her husband Ryan continue the family’s long association with Jackson through their company, Wild West Designs. Specializing in custom lighting and antler chandeliers, Wild West Designs creates pieces for both corporate and residential installations. A free-flowing antler canopy with filtered lighting installed in a Santa Fe restaurant was featured in Architectural Digest. Wild West Designs carries custom furniture by Green Gables made of turn-of-the-century aged barn wood, and is able to ship internationally.

DWELLING

For over 35 years, Ballou Dawg American Furnishings has offered one-of-a-kind furniture made by New Mexico craftsman and owner Ray Renfroe. Signature pieces are handmade from wormy maple, a naturally-distressed wood with a beautiful grain.
