â&#x20AC;&#x153;The spaces we live in have a profound effect on our well being. Colors, textures, and materials are just some of the tangible elements that affect how we feel in our daily lives. But creating a truly inspiring environment goes beyond look and feel. It is essential to know how energy flows through every room, and how light interacts with every surface. We distill individual preferences, translate personal styles, and incorporate worldly fascinations to help each client realize their dream of living in a home that brings them deep joy and an inspired quality of life.â&#x20AC;? - Kari Arendsen - Principal

THE ART OF

Couture Born from a modest beginning of selling raw frames in Los Angeles, celebrated furnishings atelier Nancy Corzine merges the disciplines of design, manufacturing and upholstery, executing time-honored craftsmanship with a deft and capable touch. “I often comment that we are a dinosaur company; we manufacture the old-fashioned way,” enthuses the firm’s founder Nancy Corzine. “Our manufacturing, finishing and upholstery are all done by hand. I imagine you would describe us as a dying breed that is very much alive.” Entering its third decade, Nancy Corzine has now grown to encompass three distinct showrooms in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, as well as representation in 14 other furnishing purveyors’ showrooms across the country. Corzine, who started the business in 1983 from a tiny showroom on Robertson Boulevard, Los Angeles, anticipated the firm to be a “small retirement business.” Never did she expect such a tremendous response to the highquality and high-design pieces for which her eponymous firm has become known.

To continually create beautiful things, there must be passion. It is absolutely the most important ingredient. — NANCY CORZINE

INSPIRED COUTURE

Inspiration is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s the Palace of Versailles or the Chrysler Building, I’m inspired by everything around me.

ARTISANAL TENETS

The attention to detail in design, manufacturing, finishing, gilding and upholstery is always our highest priority. Our goal is to create the antiques of tomorrow that will live through many generations.

AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE

Our ability to take each day as a new opportunity and work as a team to achieve our goals empowers us all to accomplish yet one more seemingly impossible task, bringing us ever closer to perfection.

Inspiration Entering its sixth decade as a renowned decorative fixture and hardware atelier, the house of Tétard-HaudiquezGrisoni (THG®-Paris) exists solely to perfect the art of refined living for the bath. Based near Normandy, France, THG is celebrated around the world for its exquisite, handcrafted collections of faucets and accessories. ARTISAN CRAFTSMANSHIP

Using traditional methods passed down through generations, THG’s French artisans craft one-of-a-kind pieces. The process, both artistic and technical, requires knowledge and experience fueled by commitment and passion. Each piece is handled with care and meticulously crafted, inspected and finished to perfection.

Manufacture de Monaco: Monte Carlo

UNIQUE AESTHETICS

THG-Paris is recognized as the ‘haute couture of bath fittings,’ providing both exquisite French craftsmanship and designs at the highest level.

THG’s collections vary in style, from traditional to contemporary. They craft both individually with their in-house design team and in collaboration with esteemed design houses and high-end crystal and tabletop houses. Inspired by the American Industrial Revolution, two of THG’s newest collections incorporate the look of industrial pipe, fittings and raw iron.

AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE

Apparent in every detail, the THG difference is experienced by the senses. The eyes linger over the clarity and sparkle of fine gems and metal finishes while the hand tests the weight and strength of a wellcrafted handle. To the touch, each sculptural handle feels smooth and soft, providing a tactile feast and a luxurious sensory experience.

LUXURY DEFINED… It’s a simple yet thought-provoking question, and one that triggers an exceedingly personal reply: What is luxury? For this issue, we took our lead from the Victoria and Albert Museum of London’s recent exhibition, “What is Luxury,” a methodically edited show that set out to define the meaning of luxury while also attempting to predict its future. We surveyed some of the industry’s top designers to weigh in on the subject; read their take in our “Radar” section.

So, what is luxury when it comes to design? Is it covering your walls in Fortuny silk, a summer home in East Hampton, a handcrafted Baccarat onyx crystal chandelier? Or is luxury the ability to say no; to say yes? I believe luxury is purposed as a catchphrase for selectiveness, for meaningful experiences and anything precious that you’d never discard, for time, for a jolt of beauty, for objects with a sense of purity and for the small-batch handmade, for unstudied style. Luxury is about the details.

A JOLT OF BEAUTY FROM OUR PAGES Clockwise from top left: Astral Agnes 1-12 Bulb light fixture by Lindsey Adelman. Large Hixmore Triangles wallcovering by De Gournay. A plate from Oscar de la Renta Home’s Carolina collection. Small Ring Bag in Chalk Smooth Calfskin by Céline. Promemoria’s plush Vittoria chair.

PORTRAIT: SONYA REVELL.

As editors of this magazine, we are tasked with exploring, curating and reporting on luxury for the home. It’s an elusive concept and each of us identifies the theme with our own slightly skewed lens. We speak with designers and architects, direct home shoots, head off to design shows and preview the latest collections. Back at our offices, we deliberate on what we see and hear, sharing ideas with much back-and-forthing; always, our prism shaped around luxury.

THE INSIDERS

NEW+NOW GET TO KNOW FOUR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA INFLUENCERS AS THEY SHED LIGHT ON WHAT’S OF THE MOMENT IN DESIGN, ART AND ARCHITECTURE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY IVETTE FIGUEROA

1THE DESIGNER

2 THE MERCHANT

What’s trending? Right now, I’m seeing a spontaneous mix of modern and traditional. It’s a very collected look that doesn’t feel studied or overdone. The balance between modern and vintage is a trend I hope never tires. Environmentally conscious design is also hot right now.

Having a moment: California-based design duo Dougall Paulson are on fire right now. Everything they bring to the table is amazing. Their use of materials and their new way of looking at luxury is exciting and fresh. Lately, we’ve also been rediscovering Carlo Scarpa and his architecture. He is still as relevant as he always was.

Color palette of the moment: Lately, I’ve been drawn to whites and neutrals. A crisp modern aesthetic feels really at home in chic California homes. Can’t get enough of… Mixing modern and vintage design elements. For the design-obsessed: Pay a visit to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Hollyhock House and Union Station. Also, check out the La Cienega Design Quarter. It has seen a resurgence in the past year with brand-new shops and restaurants. Shop ’til you drop: For an afternoon of shopping, I love Abbot Kinney in Venice. On your radar: I often look to the fashion and equestrian industries for inspiration, but I am also amazed by the work of my peers. Architect and designer Daniel Romualdez, for example, is at the peak of his game right now. McAlpine Tankersley, too, creates amazingly innovative architecture. Other people that have influenced me include Albert Hadley, David Hicks and Miles Redd. Up next: I’m excited about launching my new eponymous line of fabrics. I also can’t wait to see some of my from-the-ground-up projects come together, one of which I did all the architectural design for on my own. Kristen Buckingham is an interior designer based in Los Angeles. Luxury to her means making all of the green lights on the way to drinks with friends.

ADAM BLACKMAN

Missed opportunity: Blackman Cruz co-founder David Cruz and I purchased a collection of Carlo J. D. Staron Bugatti furniture recently. Among that assortment was a 1920s pedestal stand from the estate of Marchesa Luisa Casati. The name Casati was beautifully inlaid in metal into the stand. The piece was spectacular; we were sad to see it go. For the design-obsessed: The Schindler House (a.k.a. the Kings Road House) is a work of art by architect Rudolf M. Schindler; the Sheats-Goldstein residence in Beverly Crest is a masculine masterpiece by architect John Lautner; and architectural firm Greene and Greene’s The Gamble House in Pasadena is not to be missed. Luxury is… Having the room to fulfill your dreams. In California, space is our biggest perk, followed by our indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Also, personally, there’s nothing more luxurious than when I get to use my Allan Adler Town & Country flatware to host family and friends. Keep your eyes on: Internationally, we’re really digging Mexico City, particularly its arts scene, right now. Also, David just returned from Cuba, and seeing a society on the brink of change was an inspiring experience. He was impressed by the people’s spirit and their artistic culture in general— everywhere you looked, people were singing and carrying on.

Galleries worth a visit: Venus Over Los Angeles, 356 Mission and MaRS in downtown Los Angeles are all cutting-edge contemporary art galleries. We’re also looking forward to The Broad museum’s grand opening, which is happening this September. L.A. artist Clare Graham creates amazing recycled art at his MorYork Gallery in Highland Park, as well. Up next: We’ve been developing the Blackman Cruz Workshop, which will produce our own line of contemporary furniture and lighting. Inspired by our treks to far-flung corners of the world, BC Workshop engages local craftsmen to honor and preserve bygone techniques. Adam Blackman is the co-founder of L.A.’s Blackman Cruz, a curated collection of offbeat antiques and décor. His favorite piece at the shop is the BC Workshop tree trunk table, and his hidden talents include unicycle riding.

Images: Clockwise from top: A peek at designer Kristen Buckingham’s portfolio, with images of recently completed residential projects. Offerings from Blackman Cruz include the Spike and Thorn limited-edition handblown glass chandelier and the company’s BC Workshop tree trunk table.

4 THE CURATOR MALCOLM WARNER

What’s intriguing you now in art? The rising reputation of local California art and design has truly been gaining momentum recently. I am especially looking forward to Annabelle Selldorf’s expansion of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla, as well as the Frank Gehry exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which is going on right now. Can’t get enough of... Artist Wayne Thiebaud—both for his work and for the occasional conversations about art that I’m fortunate enough to have with him.

On your radar: Right now, I’m obsessed with the local leather goods and accessories company This Is Ground. They have completely reimagined office and electronic accessories. One to watch: Sally Breer just received the Hospitality Design Award for her amazing work on the Hotel Covell—a boutique hotel in Los Feliz. From concept to completion, every detail there is top-notch and customized to bring her vision to life flawlessly.

3 THE PHOTOGRAPHER BETHANY NAUERT

What’s intriguing you now in design? I love how styles evolve and revolve over time. I am seeing more and more homes that are less polished and that put a serious emphasis on appearing approachable and lived-in. What’s trending? Green home living is gaining popularity, and acquiring décor that is multifunctional

For the design-obsessed: Neutra VDL in Silver Lake and the Eames Case Study House in the Pacific Palisades are must-sees. Also, check out Griffith Park—it’s a grand oasis inside our city and offers a great panorama of the town. For art lovers, the Los Angeles Arts District has an incredible commune of artists and independent businesses that are beautifying downtown’s tough industrial spaces. Luxury means… Having breakfast outside during winter. As Californians, we have it pretty good. We also have easy access to the desert, beach and mountains all at once. Shop ’til you drop: My favorite places to shop include vintage stores Shopclass and Sunbeam Vintage in Highland Park. Bethany Nauert is an L.A.-based interiors and lifestyle photographer. She likes to dabble in graphic design and owns a ridiculous number of purses and pens.

Not-to-miss exhibits: The Laguna Art Museum will be premiering “David Ligare: California Classicist” on October 18 and “Helen Lundeberg: A Retrospective” in February 2016. Both of these artists are described—by themselves and many others— as classicists. It’ll be fascinating to look at them in succession and consider what “classical” means in modern and contemporary art. Best place to get lost: I’m excited about the opening of the new Urth Caffé. It’s going to be housed in an impeccably restored Craftsman-style cottage across the Coast Highway from the museum. Shop ’til you drop: If you’re into smart, independent bookstores, and I absolutely hope you are, you should check out Laguna Beach Books in the HIP District immediately. They have something of interest for just about everyone. Up next: Sometime in the future, when I retire, I plan on finally finishing a long-time project of mine: a book on the incredible British Pre-Raphaelite artist John Everett Millais. Malcolm Warner, executive director of the Laguna Art Museum, is a soccer enthusiast who would love to add an original William Morris chair to his personal collection.

Images: From top: The Laguna Art Museum’s dedication to modern art is evident from its stark contemporary exterior to its remarkable, often colorful exhibits. Photographer Bethany Nauert’s expert eye for color and texture make her a wellrespected name in the shelter, food and lifestyle industries.

and often repurposed has become standard practice. I love knowing that just when you think you’ve seen the most incredible space—something that can’t be topped—you’ll find something that surpasses it. It keeps you continually in awe.

Luxury is: Laguna Beach has the luxury of vast, protected natural surroundings—a greenbelt and a bluebelt. It’s one of the reasons the Laguna Art Museum stages an annual Art & Nature festival with commissioned outdoor pieces. My personal idea of luxury, however, is having nothing in particular to do.

LUXURY

THE VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM’S INTRIGUING “WHAT IS LUXURY?” EXHIBIT STIMULATED OUR OWN THOUGHTS AND CONVERSATIONS ON DECODING THAT VERY QUERY.

COM_LX3_Radar_WhatIsLuxury_126-132.indd 126

7/16/15 1:50 PM


A

nswering the question of what luxury is proves to be a much more complex task than one would imagine. On the surface, the widely accepted denotation of the word skews toward the ornate, highpriced, limited-edition, but perhaps distilling luxury down to just a prescribed set of words is not the best course to chart. It is rather an idea that shapes to who you are, what you like, where you live…even when you live. For its provocative exhibit “What is Luxury?” (through September 27), the Victoria and Albert Museum in London questions, challenges and explores this concept through the eyes of curators Jana Scholze and Leanne Wierzba, who peel back the layers of the obvious to unveil that, in fact, luxury is established and molded within certain parameters—time, setting and individual preference. The show, which promises to “interrogate ideas of luxury today…and address how luxury is made and understood in a physical, conceptual and cultural capacity,” analyzes the evolving perception of the notion. A jewel-encrusted, solid-gold crown fashioned for 18th-century Portuguese royalty gets just as equal value as a plastic object created within the confines of a fictional future where the now commonplace material is heralded as a rarity. In answer to the museum’s general call on the subject, we asked design industry vets to interpret their own meaning of luxury, and what we discovered was a common thread: Luxury is an impression, a moment in time, space, experience, the undeniable pleasure of something well-made. It’s the softness and warmth of walnut; the beauty in the imperfect hand-made light fixture; the truly one-of-a-kind artifact brought back from a worldly excursion. Luxury goes beyond the fundamental to a place of the exclusive and the extraordinary. Read on and ponder your own definition.

NATUR AL BEAUTY

DOYENNE OF LINEN BERNIE DE LE CUONA LETS US PEEK PAST THE CASHMERE DRAPERIES AND INTO THE YARN BEHIND HER LUXURIOUS FABRIC HOUSE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID CLEVELAND

Beauty matters: I was not a textile expert before starting my company and the whole thing began by mistake really: I just wanted to produce beautiful things and see if I could sell them. So, I left my home in South Africa for Brussels, where I garnered a tremendous wealth of knowledge on linen, silk, cashmere and tailoring techniques, and from there, my passion developed into so much more than I could have ever imagined. A love of linen: It’s obvious I fell in love with linen. Aside from it being the oldest fiber known to man, linen is also such a versatile material; it can take on many forms. There’s quite a debt in the market when it comes to linen because it’s a difficult material to work with. Anything natural possesses imperfections in the fibers, and that’s precisely what I like to use. Linen can also achieve perfection if pushed. It’s a fabric that can go from acutely raw to highly luxurious—what’s not to love about that? Creative process: Mine is a fluid one, but not a perfect science; it shifts depending upon my current muse or inspiration. One constant, though, are my drawings—I sketch everything by hand to convey an idea. When the idea is ready, I work very closely with each mill and artisan to create a new product. I’m also a believer in creating change through a contrast of textures—an enduring combination has been my heavy Buffalo linen alongside the very delicate Feather Cashmere. Life in Windsor: I absolutely love it! It’s just far enough from the hustle and bustle of London and flush with history: My studio lives in famed Mistress Page’s House, steps from Windsor Castle; it’s so easy to be constantly inspired in such an environment. Greatest luxury: Spending time on the banks of Africa’s Zambezi River, where mobile phones and hair dryers don’t work, and having nothing more on the to-do list than a long hike in the brush. What’s next: I’ve recently noticed a lot of buzz around organic, natural materials and how the artisans’ hands are more noticeable in the product. For de Le Cuona, this has always been the mantra. That being said, I never ignore modern machinery, because mixing handmade and modern techniques creates something entirely dynamic with a fresh perspective—that’s the future.

ANNA WINTOUR: She is the cornerstone of

ANNIE LEIBOVITZ: Annie is very astute. When we met to shoot our family portrait, she had already studied basically every image of us her office could find. She had analyzed our wardrobe and knew what she wanted us to wear. It was remarkable to work with someone at that level of professionalism. She pieces together personality, point of view and purpose in her camera work.

Carrier and Company: She was our first client and is still our biggest patron. We did her office at 4 Times Square and at 1 World Trade Center, her house in the country and subsequent guest cottages, her kids’ dorm rooms, their first apartments and second apartments…it’s an ongoing relationship. FINDING THEIR CLIENTS’ VOICES: Our process generally begins with an interview in their current home, where we pick up from the visual clues and figure out what their tolerances are. Then they’ll come to the office and we’ll put out piles of fabrics in very loose schemes and say, “Throw on the floor what you don’t like.” They start telling us what it reminds them of; their history starts to come out.

PLAYING THE MIND GAME: There’s a lot

PERSONAL STYLE: We’re terribly practical

THEIR NEW BOOK: We pride ourselves on being

people. When left to our own devices, we fall under the category of bohemian glamour. That’s code for organic, light and easy, and a little bit humble and little bit thrift store.

able to fulfill different aesthetics, which is how we ultimately decided to structure the book. You’ll see that when we do traditional work, this is what it’s like. When we do country work, this is what we think about, etc.

of psychology behind design. Everyone has insecurities, aspirations and fantasies, but it’s very hard for people to express what they want the house to portray about them. It really teaches us a lot when clients don’t like sheen or dump anything that’s a silk or sateen; some hate heavy things and reject any velvet or mohair. It starts to show us what they want the project to say.

WEAK SPOTS: I’m a big sucker for painted furniture. I found this Swedish drop-front desk that’s not the traditional Swedish blue-gray but rather a funny tomato orange color with a weird green interior; I just thought it was the prettiest thing I’d ever seen.

GETTING INSPIRED: We absorb a lot through magazines and movies. We’ve been to Italy twice and there are still things that I take away from there—the color of the sunlight, the amount of texture in all the materials, the energy.

OBJECT ENVY: It’s incredible to think about

ART: It’s so emotional and energetic. I don’t like

where our clients have been and what their eyes have seen. They have such amazing collections; Annie’s photography or Anna’s weird Clarice Cliff pottery. They’re like little house museums.

to know the backstory, what makes the artist important or what they were thinking…all the stuff that a collector wants to know. It ruins it for me. We pick things that feel good or resonate, not based off the name. It’s not always expected.

RENOWNED FASHION HOUSE OSCAR DE LA RENTA TEAMS UP WITH PORTUGUESE PORCELAIN COMPANY VISTA ALEGRE TO CREATE A FEMININE SERVICE WITH A NOD TO COUTURE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT

Fashion leader Oscar de la Renta’s legacy for making women look and feel beautiful has long since made its way off the runway and into our homes. This fall, by way of a powerhouse partnership with Portuguese porcelain brand Vista Alegre, this same sensibility has taken the form of fine china. “Vista Alegre is a company with an incredible legacy,” says Carolina Irving, creative director at Oscar de la Renta Home. “The collaboration between us has been such a fascinating process.” Named after Irving herself, the Carolina collection takes its distinctive pattern directly from a gown designed for de la Renta’s Spring 2006 runway collection. “What’s so great about the scheme is that we were able to lift individual prints from the dress to be applied to the tabletop pieces,” recalls Irving. “I spent two days in the factory exploring the archives with the Vista Alegre team. We took a versatile pattern and together we reinterpreted it in a fresh and beautiful way.” The full-range dinner service is characterized by floral motifs and boasts a vibrant coral hue—one of the late fashion designer’s favorites. “Coral has always been a classical color used in 18th-century china,” adds Irving. “The goal was to revisit something antique and translate it to modern times with Oscar’s unmistakeable eye.”

Luxury design is embedded in Romeo Sozzi’s DNA. “I’m a third-generation cabinetmaker,” says the founder and president of Italian furniture firm Promemoria. “I grew up in the family workshop, learning from my father and grandfather.” In 1988, after clients began requesting custom items, Romeo conceived Promemoria. “I wanted to offer people the pieces they couldn’t find on the market.” Today, the prestigious brand’s manufacturing methods would seem familiar even to the Sozzi family’s 19th-century forbearers, who made their living as coachmakers for the local nobility. “We don’t have stock and our production is not industrial; everything is handmade here in Italy, often customized and done in limited editions,” says Romeo, who has continued his family’s generational influence by bringing aboard his sons Stefano, Davide and Paolo. Beyond his hands-on strategy, Romeo approaches design holistically. “A product is not just an object; it’s an experience,” he points out. “I use fragrant woods like cypress for the inside of cabinets to ignite the sense of smell, and there’s nothing like caressing a velvet chair to rouse the sense of touch.” For inspiration, Romeo ranges widely, finding it equally in the landscape of his home near Lake Como and further afield (a recent collection drew from Asian philosophy). While grounded in centuriesold traditions, Romeo continues to hone his vision and practices. “Last year, we introduced alabaster for lampshades as well as a process that combines strips of leather in different colors that resembles stacked wood,” he reports. This year, they showed cabinets and tables inlaid with bronze flecks reminiscent of stars scattered across the night sky. Even the firm’s name—a Latin term meaning “for the sake of memory”—suggests the brand’s impulse to look to both the future and the past as the business continues to evolve. “I call my company Promemoria because I understand it as a memory of past traditions, which has a fundamental role in my work,” says Romeo. Adds Paolo, “Though our philosophy changes a little every day to move forward, we still follow the memory.”

THE SHAPE OF THINGS

FOR BEC BRITTAIN, ENGINEERING LIGHT FIXTURES DESIGNED TO PUZZLE AND AMAZE IS AN INNATE PROCESS THAT CONTINUES TO ILLUMINATE HER PATH. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS PHOTOGRAPHY BY RENÉ CERVANTES

COM3_RadarBecBrittain_144.indd 144

“I have always thought with systems and structure in mind,” explains New York-based bespoke lighting designer Bec Brittain, whose latest introductions fall perfectly in line with her distinct geometric body of work. Debuting at this year’s ICFF was Zelda (shown above), which, like many of Brittain’s creations, is highly versatile. “Zelda’s flexible form can be fashioned in a simple single diamond formation, arranged concentrically in geometric orbits or fit together like the links of a chain,” she says. “I initially had a few ideas for configuration during the sketch process, but now that we have the parts in-house and can play with them, new ideas start to reveal themselves.” Proving that design is anything but linear, Zelda’s powerful persona shows off Brittain’s classic trademark of fusing

cutting-edge technology alongside sculptural shapes conveyed in sleek materials. “Clearly, I love brass,” states the designer. “And, Zelda’s juxtaposition of the brass-encased LED tubing with the gracefully suspended planar forms adapts to a vast array of spaces and sensibilities. I just love the freedom of lighting design, in that I have so much room to play sculpturally.” Indeed, with both architecture and philosophy in her degree repertoire, Brittain’s translation of light is uniquely her own and unquestionably a subject of intrigue among the rest of the industry. Currently, the creative Brooklynite is expanding her reach—with her new Los Angeles outpost opening this fall— bridging her forward-thinking point of view from coast to coast.

HORTON PLAZA PARK

Your Sunday-evening San Diego picnics are about to get a whole lot prettier thanks to the newest reincarnation of the city’s de facto comeback kid. Back in the 1870s, Horton Plaza—named in honor of San Diego’s founding father, Alonzo Erastus Horton— was just a barren plot of land with a community bandstand that was used, among other things, as a place for townsfolk to gather and mull over news of the impending railroad. Through decades of various uses, the park has remained a historic symbol of the city—though, perhaps, not a very attractive one. Now, the city has allotted $17 million and tapped the landscape architects at Walker Macy to transform the land into an urban plaza that citizens can be proud of, with a refurbished, interactive water fountain, amphitheater and tree-shaded food pavilions. The management responsible for the adjacent Westfi eld Horton Plaza will also manage the park and has promised a minimum of 200 events per year in downtown’s newest space—think farmers’ markets, outdoor movie screenings, fairs and food festivals. It’s a fi tting tribute for the community dubbed “America’s Finest City.” walkermacy.com

When did you open? My husband, Channon Roe, and I welcomed our first guests at 730 E. Ojai Avenue last fall. Describe the space. We hand-selected, sourced and created every aspect of the space, choosing to maintain the integrity of the Spanish-style exterior and bringing that inside as well by creating more open archways and bullnosing all the hard edges. Large open windows and skylights give the space a gallery-like feel. On the floor? A carefully curated collection of brands, most of which are made by our dear friends. We carry a mix of clothing and found objects, along with new and refurbished vintage furniture and textiles. The products we focus on are all things we have lived with and enjoyed for many seasons. Up next? We’ve just completed two large-scale residential interiors projects and hope to keep growing in that department. inthefieldojai.com

CURATOR GAVLAK GALLERY “I remember seeing Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater for the first time when I was young; it changed my life. I thought, ‘This is what I want to do when I grow up,’ even though I didn’t fully comprehend what ‘this’ was. Now, as curator of my own gallery, I am drawn to artists who know the history of art and are as equally invested in the quality of their work as they are in the ideas behind it. Someone who accomplishes this beautifully is Marnie Webber, an incredible Los Angeles artist who does narrative film- and performance-based work that also comes out of the punk rock/experimental music scene in the tradition of Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy.”

INSIDE EDITION LUXE TAPPED TALENTED LOCAL DESIGNERS FOR THEIR BEST SOURCES AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO SHINE A LIGHT ON SOME OF THE AREA’S FINEST OFFERINGS IN ART AND DESIGN.

THE MAKER TANYA AGUIÑIGA

“William Laman is a gem of a shop in Montecito. It features a distinctive mix of one-of-a-kind antiques, ranging from the 18th to mid-20th centuries, as well as furniture, accessories and garden ornaments. All of these items are hand-selected by Bruce Gregga and William Laman on their many buying trips to Europe.”

“Jim Olarte, aka ‘The Modern Beachcomber,’ is my favorite go-to, local Los Angeles artist. His work is an example of both excess and restraint at the same time, an almost impossible task. You can find his pieces at 503 Found, a Newport Beach shop with a well-curated selection of new and vintage furniture and accessories.”

“Meyer Fine Art in San Diego’s Little Italy is one of my favorite places to browse around on a sunny afternoon. Their focus is on smallerscale prints from a variety of diff erent centuries. I like that the focus isn’t on modern art, which is what a lot of galleries are leaning toward today.”

-ANN JAMES

-AMANDA MALSON

-MAEGAN SWABB

It was function over expression that first drew Los Angeles artist Tanya Aguiñiga to her craft. “I grew up in an environment where everything was put to use,” she says. But now, further into her career, Aguiñiga credits something else for her desire to keep creating. “In my work, I often attempt to try and solve problems or bring attention to them in hopes of making them a part of our conversation as a society,” she says. “The issues that I deal with vary from the personal to issues of globalization and the needs of marginalized communities.” For our part, we’re all ears. Here, the artist details her process, from concept to completion, and lets her works speak for themselves. tanyaaguiniga.com Describe your design aesthetic. I focus on making material-based work rooted in skill and tradition with a special emphasis placed on details. These details can include fi nish, context, function or design. What materials do you like to use? I have been exploring with a number of utilitarian materials and analyzing how one can elicit texture from them. I’m interested in the experimentation with and deconstruction of materials to create work that is not bound by traditional disciplines or titles. Best local haunts? My favorite places in L.A. focus on innovation and quality—JF Chen, Reform Gallery, Weltenbuerger and MorYork. I’m also very interested in the work of local artist Rafa Esparza; his performance pieces are really powerful.

Share your process. Most of my projects begin by talking through concepts with my studio assistants. We then create a series of small drawings and/or small-scale sketch models along with a list of keywords pertaining to the project, which then leads to material exploration through the process of making. How has living in Los Angeles infl uenced your work? This city has given me the ability to thrive as an artist. The want and need for collaboration here has really created a tight network of creatives unique to the area. There are so many resources here, and with that access, anything seems possible. And with being so close to Mexico, I’ve had the opportunity to stay close to my family and heritage, which has a huge influence on my work.

IN STEP UNITED NUDE

Architectural footwear brand United Nude is reinventing the way fashionistas strut in their high heels. Known for its sculptural silhouettes and advanced manufacturing processes, the company is at it again: expanding its multidimensional, rubber-molded Lo Res collection—shown in High Red, Metallic Silver and Blossom—by incorporating malleable chromed-finishing technologies into some of its designs. And thanks to 3D Systems, the label has also launched a limited-edition collaboration line with such design greats as Zaha Hadid and Ross Lovegrove to offer wearable 3D-printed shoes that might as well be art. In a shared expression of love for fashion and design, United Nude presented its latest styles at a pop-up shop during the recent opening of AC Hotel Miami Beach. Since both brands boast a modern mindset and European roots, the pairing was a natural step and speaks to the hotel’s expansion into the lifestyle arena. This partnership proves that if the shoe fits, you don’t have to just wear it—you can wear it in style. unitednude.com; ac-hotels.com

DATE BOOK SALLY BREER

Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood welcomed its first boutique hotel in the form of a five-room, second-floor retreat named Hotel Covell. Local restaurateur Dustin Lancaster linked up with Sally Breer, a stunningly vintage (both in design aesthetic and personal aura) interior designer, to bring to life George Covell, a fictional character that is inspired by bits and pieces of both of their backgrounds. Each of the hotel’s five rooms represents a chapter in Covell’s life, from his Oklahoma roots and Paris love affair to success in New York City. Breer, for her part, was right at home designing a space that is both worldly and unconventional, laidback and luxurious. Here, the bon vivant takes us through her ideal day in the City of Angels. sallybreer.com; hotelcovell.com

10:30 a.m. Drive down to Sunset Junction, parking near Mohawk General. Hit that first for impeccable apparel, and then go on down to Reform School for its card stock collection. 12 p.m. A bit north (about a 20-minute walk if you choose) is Skylight Books, which, in my opinion, is the dreamiest way to spend an afternoon. 1:30 p.m. Hungry? Collect the car and head to Dune in Atwater Village. Get

the falafel, or really anything on the menu. The space is no-frills but still manages to feel special. After your meal, go across the street for a chocolate chip cookie and espresso from Proof Bakery. 2:30 p.m. Head to Shinola on Sunset for your bespoke Americana fix and Dream Collective for a stained-glass piece and insane bookends you didn’t know that you needed in your life—but, in fact, you need them in your life. Then, stop in Clare V. next door for a minimalist leather clutch that makes you feel like the chicest French girl when you carry it. 4 p.m. Next, hit LawsonFenning’s new showroom on Melrose. Those boys have nailed the “young, handsome bachelor that works too much to fill the fridge but frequents art auctions and collects

special pieces of furniture when he travels” look. The contemporary furniture they produce is some of the best out there right now. It feels special the way that vintage does but is customizable and affordable. Around the corner, the collection at The Window is entirely unique and left-of-center in the most inspiring way. 7 p.m. Don’t you think we need a drink now? I certainly do! Upstairs at L&E Oyster Bar is the perfect place for a glass of sparkling wine and some bivalves or the smoked salmon plate, if you wish. 8:30 p.m. Next up, go across the street to Alimento. If you’re not overly indulgent like me, you should order the yellowtail collar or the tortellini in brodo—or just one of everything on the menu.

IN STEP PHOTOS: COURTESY UNITED NUDE. DATE BOOK PHOTOS: BETHANY NAUERT.

9 a.m. Start your day with breakfast tacos at Homestate—the potato taco feels like the oftforgotten one, but it’s actually one of the best items on the menu. Then, walk next door to the newly opened G&B Coffee. They make a ginger turmeric latte (with homemade nut milk) that will quite literally ruin all other lattes for you.

Personal style: Traditional with an edge. Signature look: Blazer or country jacket, shirt and tie…with scarves and boots, of course; I live in the country! Closet staples: I’m a big Tom Ford fan and his jackets are among some of my favorite pieces I own. Recent fashion score: A new pair of Thom Browne wingtip brogues. Interior philosophy: Classic timelessness always seems relevant, especially when it’s thoughtfully intermixed with modern elements in fresh ways. Design mantra: Old is the new "new." Accessory motives: They ebb and flow in importance to me, usually by season—more important in winter, less in summer. Splurge-worthy: Art and antiques, beautiful fabrics and luggage. Source of inspiration: The natural world around me, specifically my farm in Virginia. Never too many… Overcoats. Can’t live without… Dogs. Guilty pleasure: Dogs with overcoats. Luxury is… Things that feel good to the touch—a tactile experience. Whether rough and splintery or smooth and soft, luxury is a feeling.

Personal style: My uniform is California preppy—not to be confused with East Coast prep. Signature look: A custom shirt, hues of blue and barefoot. Closet staples: I’m a creature of habit: I’ve had my favorite topsiders resoled three times as well as a pair of Gucci loafers. Recent fashion score: A navy blue Burberry trench for all those rainy L.A. days. Interior philosophy: Traditional base flecked with a laid-back vibe. Design mantra: Navy is my neutral; it’s my spirit color. Accessory motives: Accents are the jewelry, the sparkle, the shine in any space, and I allocate a hefty portion of any budget towards these finishing touches. Recent design score: An all-blue Alex Katz lithograph; art is always worth the splurge. Indulge in… Fine linens—anything made in small runs. Leontine Linens in New Orleans is a great resource for luxury goods. Never too many… Blue checked shirts. Can’t live without… My dog Nacho. Guilty pleasure: A hot dog from Pink’s. Luxury is… Something made incredibly well and that embodies both style and timelessness. I look to small, bespoke companies as my barometer of luxury.

Personal style: Classic but diverse. Signature look: I suppose I’m known for my bow ties, but one day I may wear a runway piece from Dior Homme and the next a tailored Savile Row three-piece suit. Regardless, I tend to “dress up” everyday. Closet staple: Vintage tails from the 1920s. I found them at a consignment store and they didn’t need so much as a stich of alterations—it was as if they had been tailored just for me. Recent design score: An extraordinarily beautiful seascape painting entitled End of the Road—Provincetown 1948; it was a birthday gift to myself. Fashion mantra: Menswear is the new forefront of fashion. Never too many… Cufflinks! I have hundreds. Can’t live without… My custommade croc wingtips. Guilty pleasure: Cashmere. Luxury is… The individual craftsman who has literally made something for you with his or her own hands; it is the single greatest indication of true luxury. Whether it’s a bespoke suit, custom-fitted shoes, a made-tomeasure shirt or a silk-covered sofa, having something made solely for you by a craftsperson is the greatest of luxuries.

Personal style: Earthy and fairly laid-back. Signature look: I always feel most comfortable in blue jeans, leather boots and a button-down work shirt. Closet staple: I have an old Double Ralph Lauren snap shirt that’s perfectly worn, super soft and incredibly comfortable. Recent fashion score: A handmade pair of Italian leather boots from Fiorentini + Baker. Interior philosophy: Modern with a warm soul; I love rooms that are very edited and straightforward but thoughtfully designed. Design mantra: Authenticity is the new American Dream. Splurge-worthy: I recently indulged in a beautiful wood turning by artist Joshua Vogel. Source of inspiration: The Scandinavian culture consistently strives for elegant simplicity and timeless style, and I’d like to think I do the same in my interiors. Never too many… Wood bowls—no two are ever exactly alike. Can’t live without… My Maldon sea salt. Guilty pleasure: A Friday night double feature at the local theater. Luxury is… Less about privilege and more about experience and awareness: being mindful of a beautiful sunset, sipping a good bourbon, enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal, having time off and sleeping in.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR CALVIN KLEIN

Drama: Castle is a showstopper. It is industrial by way of repetition yet sculpturally compelling and radiant. The way the light subtly glows, rather than shining brightly, is its greatest strength. Statement: Our eye immediately focuses on a “statement piece.” A dynamic shape, like that of Castle, draws you in and demands attention. Talent: Offering a voice to the next generation of designers is vital to our industry. Young creatives today, like Jason Miller, bring new ideas and start conversations that lead to innovation. Luxury: Keen attention to the details of materiality and functionality is luxury.

Composition: The strength of the Tommy collection is in the juxtaposition of its complex texture within simple silhouettes. The pieces command attention in a soft yet stable way. Classic: The collection reminds me of European antiques markets, with the design combining influences from both classic French eras and midcentury patterns. Evolution: There is a fine balance to strike when retaining the essence of a brand and moving with the times. People live informally today, and by incorporating formal pieces into everyday life, it makes even the most ordinary tasks feel like a treat. Luxury: People will always crave formal luxuries as they create a beautiful environment to share with family and friends.

SUSANNE MARTINEZ VP OF DESIGN SFERRA

Form: The Ada stool is deceptively simple yet well-considered in terms of its materiality and design. There’s an Escher quality to the lines of the piece that makes it feel magical, and the negative space becomes essential. Material: The warmth and gleam of the polished brass is all modern sophistication and purely chic. The gold hue contrasts beautifully with the matte upholstered seat. Feel: Whimsy is a key element in keeping a brand fresh and current in today’s marketplace. Adding a moment of delight is precisely the thing that brings a collection to life. Luxury: Luxury is how something makes you feel—it’s a sensation and a quality tied to personal experience.

Shape: The Fut table feels like more than a table—it sparks the imagination to focus on what isn’t there just as much as what is. It’s almost musical with its drum-like form. There’s simplicity and purity to the piece, but it still manages to intrigue you. Surprise: In today’s market, it’s important for a brand to surprise customers in a way that makes them smile. That said, it’s equally important to be thoughtful in your choices and balance a sense of whimsy with timeless silhouettes and traditional materials. Connection: Buying a piece is personal. I love objects that tell a story. I curate the rooms in my home with pieces that feel special and never buy anything that I’m not in love with.

Muse: Before my first trip to Capri years ago, I had read about Livio de Simone and was fascinated by his vibrant use of pattern and color. Cubi 3D feels as though you are looking out of a small window on an island by the sea. Color: The way the colors interact here is so simple yet bold. The different tones of blue and green transport the viewer to a place of serenity. It makes me feel calm and nostalgic. Memory: The way the hues of the sea and sky come together in this motif reminds me of my glamorous grandmother in the 1970s wearing a patterned headscarf in a Cadillac convertible.

Design: Moroso is great at combining classic lines with updated materials and finishes. The company’s experimentation with scale in their oversize upholstery attracts me to its pieces.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Technology has influenced and affected every industry in design—its ubiquity has forced even the most ardent of purists to adapt in one way or another. But simply adapting is not enough: The survival of today’s leading manufacturers of luxury, bespoke goods has been contingent upon their ability to find an equilibrium between handmade and high-tech. “THE MARK OF THE MAKER” takes a look inside some of the most respected companies in their fields, recognized for their painstakingly intricate building processes and commitment to pre-modern artisanal forms of production.

SUN VALLEY BRONZE

Our clients are looking for one-of-a-kind products that are designed to last.

Since its inception, Sun Valley Bronze has been characterized by being an innovative and dynamic business with a relentless quality-centric product strategy. The company’s style and design language has continuously evolved over the past two decades to create a leading American-made brand. Sun Valley Bronze’s design studio and manufacturing facility are creative powerhouses, blending time-honored, handcrafted practices with cutting-edge technology. “When the company first started, every pattern was created by hand,” shares Sun Valley Bronze Founder Bob Commons. “Today, we use more state-of-the-art processes, such as 3-D modeling, CNC milling and 3-D printing. These processes are used from design concept throughout manufacturing.” The evolution of an idea to a tangible, beautiful object begins with a sketch. Technology brings the drawing into brilliant, living color with 3-D modeling software. It is then sent to the CNC milling machine to create a prototype, or one of Sun Valley Bronze’s skilled artisans will create a pattern by hand. “Prototypes are field checked for functionality and how the user interacts with the piece,” Commons says. “Fine-tuning of the design generally happens by hand.” An amalgam of human artistry and technological feats, the Sun Valley Bronze brand has become synonymous with beautiful design made to the highest of standards. 1

Q+A WITH SUN V AL L E Y BRONZE FOUN DE RS BOB AND DEBBIE COMMONS How do you choose your materials? What comes first—the materials or design concept? Materials are always integral to the design process. We work primarily in art-grade silicon and white bronze. Our products are sand-cast, which creates a beautiful, authentic and subtle texture on the surface of the material. What are your influences when conceiving a piece of work? The majority of our custom work is driven by architects and designers who want a specific architectural detail to be carried throughout a project. Outside of custom work, our designs are driven by material, ergonomics and process. Have your practices changed to keep up with new technologies? Absolutely. When Sun Valley Bronze first started 20 years ago, all patterns were made in a woodshop by hand. Today, we use 3-D modeling software and CNC milling machines. We also collaborate with Boise State University to realize some of our more complicated designs with 3-D printing technology.

SAMAD

There are no shortcuts when it comes to quality.

Brothers and business partners David and Malcolm Samad founded their handknotted rug business more than 30 years ago. Steeped in a familial legacy of hard work and strong ethics, the entrepreneurial Samads set out to create the world’s finest decorative rugs. “The foundation of our business is based on our love of beautiful carpets,” David says. “Our late father, Eric Samad, taught us the importance of running our business with integrity and establishing meaningful relationships with our manufacturers and customers alike.” Founded in New York City and now headquartered in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the company has expanded globally with offices in England and India. Known for exquisitely blended, hand-carded, handspun wools and silks, Samad’s creative processes date to antiquity—technology, while beneficial, has not been as instrumental in the creation of these meticulously crafted rugs. True to its origins, “made by hand” prevails in this ancient art form. “Essentially, making a hand-knotted rug is exactly the same today as it has been for centuries,” Malcolm says. “What has changed is the technology that allows us to see what a finished rug will look like on a computer screen even before it is woven. Reducing the trial and error factor has allowed us to focus and produce rugs that are fashion forward in both color and design.”

HUBBARDTON FORGE 1

We continue to grow as a domestic manufacturer in a climate where the majority of our competition is using overseas production.

I NSI GHTS FRO M HUBBARDTON F ORGE

Hubbardton Forge began life in 1974 in a tiny, drafty barn in Vermont. From the beginning, the ambition was to create beautiful, inspiring, heirloom-quality pieces that would be loved. Today, equipped with more than 200 skilled craftspeople, artisans and trade professionals, Hubbardton Forge is an American classic in the realm of hand-forged lighting. “Authenticity and genuineness is the lifeblood of everything we do, from our designs and the artisans who take pride in their work, to how we treat our employees and our environment,” says Hubbardton Forge Design Director David Kitts. A design-driven company rooted in the ideals of handcraftsmanship and quality materials, Hubbardton Forge draws inspiration from a myriad of people, places and objects, with designers proficient in architecture, jewelry design, engineering and beyond. The common denominator among this blend of artisans is the passion for the forge. “Our primary muse is the steel we forge,” he says. “We are always experimenting with what can be done next with steel and other metals.” Its design process, often the result of the convergence of two paths, is guided by both the marketplace and the imagination. “First, our designs are based on trends, gaps and needs in the marketplace; the second being unique forms, shapes and concepts that may result from a variety of conditions,” Kitts says. “This often results in the beginning of a lighting design, which is then brought into a much more defined development process.”

What should we be looking for in well-made lighting fixtures? A well-made fixture should not be held together by a lot of nuts and bolts or contain many (if any) plastic components or thin-gauged stamped parts. It should have a quality of build that looks good both from a distance and close-up. The finish on the fixture should be durable and have depth. How do you think the craft/artisan community in the U.S. has changed? The increased focus on “made in America” has both been good and bad for the craft/artisan community. It’s become a big marketing tool for many; however, we need to be careful that the authenticity is there. There is a big difference between “made” and “assembled” in America. How have your practices changed to keep up with new technologies? The light source is no longer secondary in the design development process but is now often the driver in the design.

The Joseph family, rooted in a 50-year history in Los Angeles, California, has explored this philosophy in various forms, imposing demanding ambitions on their designers and engineers, as well as onto each other, to attempt stunning, original and technically progressive designs for residential kitchens. Their products, while varied in form and function, all maintain a strong appreciation for the end user. “We ask ourselves, ‘How will this affect the homeowner?’” shares Dacor President Steven Joseph, “ ‘Are we making the cooking experience better? Easier? Simpler?’ It’s not about technology for technology’s sake— it’s about simplifying the cooking process to make the culinary experience accessible to everyone and to empower the individual.”

Creating custom, handcrafted, bench-made furniture for designers and dealers attending High Point Market and high-end design firms locally, Bausman & Company has become synonymous with enduring craftsmanship and design integrity. “We have remained successful in providing the highest quality bench-made furniture in the U.S. to customers who deserve and appreciate the best products that their money can buy,” says the company’s president and CEO Craig Johnson. “We prefer to produce tomorrow’s heirlooms by successfully incorporating cutting-edge technology with old-world handmade practices.” Comprising artisans ranging from cabinetmakers to CAD engineers to craftspeople who complete a meticulous finishing process, Bausman & Company maintains a highly skilled team of professionals who average more than 20 years of refining their craft. “Our company’s continuous growth has allowed us to preserve and create jobs for artisans and craftspeople domestically producing products, ranging from one-of-a-kind items to production runs for contract and hospitality projects domestically and internationally,” Johnson says.

If so, what is it? We design concepts ranging from modernizing classics to executing specific project requirements from clients to working as a design incubator for local design talent. What legacy do you wish to leave behind? I would like our furniture and the Bausman brand to be highly regarded and valued 100 years from now by multigenerations after we are no longer manufacturing. I hope that they will say: “Bausman really understood the meaning of timeless quality in manufacturing.”

An American dream fulfilled, the story of Baldwin Hardware is marked by a tireless work ethic, deft craftsmanship and ingenuity—tenets that remain the lifeblood of the company today. Established in 1946, the architectural hardware manufacturer is best known for its enduring bronze masterpieces. From the moment the material is first handled and worked, each process builds on a seven-decade-long heritage. “We have a robust design process involving many steps along the way,” says PJ Rosch, Baldwin brand manager. The transformation from the abstract to the tangible begins with the Baldwin design team as they sketch hundreds of concepts. The best are then selected for multiple rounds of refinement and market research. “We have many tools at our disposal, including rapid-prototyping and hand-sculpting tools,” she says. “Once in production, our products are handcrafted by an average of 30 people throughout the manufacturing process.” The last rounds of refinement for a Baldwin product are the most critical, as even the most infinitesimal change can alter its form and utility. “It is the last 10 percent of the design that separates us from the competition,” Rosch asserts. “It’s thrilling to see a piece of work come to life.”

Baldwin favorites. The new pocket door lock, with its sophisticated yet contemporary designs, is a new favorite. Guiding principles. Stay true to the design and the time period. Don’t water things down to satisfy the masses; onpurpose designs are what Baldwin values. A company of firsts. In addition to being the first company to forge solid brass door hardware, Baldwin was also the first to offer PVD lifetime finishes.

THE MARK OF THE MAKER

LITTMAN BRANDS Immersed in the lighting industry for more than 35 years, David Littman, founder and chairman of esteemed lighting manufacturer Littman Brands, possesses an infectious exuberance for his work and plays an integral part in creating and producing each design to his discerning standards. “Littman Brands companies are positioned toward the high end of the market. We don’t know how (and are not planning) to design inexpensive lighting fixtures,” Littman asserts. “Decorative lighting used to be more of an afterthought, and we’ve invested a lot of resources into educating consumers about how quality lighting enhances architecture for the long-term.” The parent company for three distinct decorative lighting brands—Hudson Valley Lighting, Troy Lighting and Corbett Lighting—Littman Brands honors the beauty of time-honored designs and antiques while incorporating new technology into its timeless pieces. “Across all brands, we are always looking for new and innovative materials to enhance our lighting designs or inspire us to create something unique,” he says. “For example, we incorporated our high-performance LEDs into some of our latest collections, where we actually machined important components (for displacing heat) as part of the exposed decorative fixture.”

TROY’S MITCHEL FIELD LED PENDANT.

To stay on the cutting-edge of the industry, we’re producing more than 600 new lighting designs per year, including a large push for innovation in the energy-efficient, high-performance LED space.

THREE UNI QU E B RANDS AT THE FORE F RONT OF TECHNOLOGY + DE S I GN Hudson Valley Lighting® Hudson Valley released new collections that use inlaid brass and glass alchemy, an uncommon Italian glass-making technique that creates a rare effect. Artisans inlay strands of brass in molten glass vertically and horizontally while blowing it into shape. The nearly dissolved brass strands remain embedded within, creating bubbles that glow once illuminated.

Troy Lighting Perhaps the most ambitious of Troy Lighting’s is the Aviation collection, inspired by the streamlined curves of mid-twentieth-century aircraft. This aerodynamic new series evokes vintage airplanes with the modern additions of powerful lighting design, including Mitchel Field, combining highperformance LED technology together with handcrafted and fabricated metalwork. Corbett Lighting Corbett Lighting is best known for its fashionforward, dramatic designs that incorporate beautiful elements, such as natural agate, micro-beaded jewelry chain, crystal drops and fine porcelain. New, sculptural designs combine with organic forms to create one-of-a-kind jewelry for the walls and ceilings.

THE MARK OF THE MAKER

MARGE CARSON Marge Carson embodies the entrepreneurial, “can-do” paradigm shift that took place during and after WWII in the United States. In the late 1940s, Carson, formerly an interior designer, was continually unsuccessful in her search for fine upholstery—so she decided to make it herself. Today, Marge Carson has grown beyond the individual and into a brand name synonymous with quality and craftsmanship. The bespoke furniture company makes bedroom, dining room, upholstery and occasional furniture, often slightly larger in scale to proportion properly for larger homes or larger spaces. Its methods of handcraftsmanship have been long maintained, from sketching to carving. “We are always evolving with the times,” says Jim LaBarge, owner and CEO of Marge Carson. “However, we will continue to hand carve rather than cast carve or machine carve, because we believe it gives the item an integrity and authenticity not achievable by the other methods.” Upholstery, the basis on which the firm was founded, is a great source of pride for LaBarge. “Fine upholstery starts with fabric, which often has a pattern. There are various complexities to get these patterns to match properly and our fabric cutters and upholsters can either flow match, two-way match or four-way match fabric depending on the shape of the item,” he shares. “We believe our fabric matching capabilities are the finest in the furniture industry.”

Our mantra to our craftspeople is to make each item as though they are making it for their own mother; if she would not approve and be proud of their work, then don’t send it on to our customers.

DESIGN-MINDED: A CONVERSATION WITH MARGE CARSON CEO JIM LABARGE How do you choose your materials? Which comes first—the materials or the design? We often design furniture with unique materials, such as stone, shell or metal, in mind. The materials definitely influence our creations, both structurally and aesthetically.

What are your values and ethics when it comes to designing/creating? We design for look and not for cost. A customer is overwhelmed with choices, and so you only have a nanosecond when they look at your product. It either tugs at their heartstrings or they move on.

What part of the design process excites you the most? It is incredibly exciting to see design ideas become sketches, which get refined and then turned into prototypes, which get further refined and are then brought to market and receive “oohs” and “aahs” and then sell for years to delighted customers.

THE FINE LINE ROUTINE TAKES A BACKSEAT TO HIGH STYLE WHEN RICH MATERIALS AND LUXURY FIXTURES MEET IN THE HOME’S MOST PRACTICAL SPACES. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

There’s more to a showpiece kitchen or bathroom than materials and top-of-the-line appliances—though those obviously play a large role. Instead, it’s the details that separate a strictly functional space from one that dazzles owners and guests alike (think: a pretty modern faucet that has sparkling water on tap or a couture-inspired bathroom vanity as multifaceted as a diamond), and you don’t have to go overthe-top to make a statement. Today’s luxury means embracing and celebrating artisanal goods, particularly when they come with a wellworn patina and slight imperfections that serve as charming signs of their makers’ hand. Here, we eschew flashy formality in favor of fancy-free spaces that are big on personality.

THE MIDAS TOUCH ANDEE HESS

A young homeowner’s Portland kitchen goes from bachelor party to black-tie optional thanks to interior designer Andee Hess’ crisp, modern aesthetic. osmosedesign.com Share your vision for this handsome space. The homeowner wanted to customize the kitchen and existing Neil Kelly lower cabinets and explore working with local artisans, so we played with the extreme facets and angles of the architecture found throughout the interiors to create one-ofa-kind elements, like the bookcase extension attached to the island.

TheLook_Kitchen+Bath.indd 217

Favorite thing about this showstopping kitchen? I particularly love the statement-making chandelier. We purchased it from Lobmeyr, a Vienna, Austria-based company that had originally designed the fixture for The Metropolitan Opera in New York over 40 years ago. It’s special and not something you get to see every day.

What makes this a luxury kitchen? Here, it’s all about the thoughtfulness, time and consideration given to each and every one of the incredible details. There’s a lot of complexity here—both in terms of finishes and the engineering required to implement some of the designs. It’s both understated yet impactful.

A BIT OF BUBBLY GROHE BLUE

UNDER THE HOOD This white-on-white kitchen by New York-based interior designer Tamara Eaton gets a serious dose of cool thanks to the custom-fabricated brass hood that takes center stage in the space. The monolithic structure sparkles against its backdrop of pristine white-glazed brick from Waterworks and functions as a nod to the home’s historic origins. “It gives the kitchen a really artistic approach,” says Eaton. “I love that the unlacquered brass finish will slowly change over time and produce a really beautiful patina as it ages, which is fitting as it recalls the brass doorknobs and hinges often found in the older town houses in this neighborhood.” tamaratoday.com

FEEL THE HEAT

AGA DUAL CONTROL

Put down that bottle of San Pellegrino: For those with a thirst for sparkling water, Grohe’s Blue faucet offers up chilled, bubbly H2O on tap. Using a patented five-stage filter to eliminate impurities—like chlorine, limescale and heavy metal—in the water that is delivered to the home, and an active carbon filter to provide the perfect amount of carbonation, Grohe’s newest technology is seeking to make a dent in the estimated 38 billion water bottles that end up in landfills each year. The result is a dynamic kitchen staple that is a win for environmental enthusiasts and those with discerning palates alike. grohe.com

At the beginning of this year, celebrated appliance company Aga said goodbye to its old oven staples and welcomed a whole new fleet of super-efficient, energy-conscious ranges to its U.S. lineup. One thing that hasn’t changed? The brand’s dedication to quality cooking and good looks. agamarvel.com

LUCK OF THE DRAW

LOOKING SHARP

A crisp, black-and-white palette has long been a staple for überchic interiors, but this edgy bathroom by Nashville interior designer Benjamin Vandiver takes the classic color combo to new levels. Thanks to the seemingly random linework on the graphic wallpaper from Kelly Wearstler, the bathroom’s more traditional elements, such as the wood-and-marble vanity and penny-round tile flooring, are cast in a seriously modern light. benjaminvandiver.com

DIAMOND FREESTAND

DIPPING IN

Interior designer Kelly Hoppen recently teamed up with Australian brand Apaiser to release a new bathroom collection featuring sinuous bathtubs and vanities that take their inspiration from naturally occurring silhouettes in the environment. The Harmony tub shown here, for example, is inspired by the form of a petal from a slowly unfurling lotus flower. With reclaimed marble serving to craft the core of each of Hoppen’s creations, the pieces are then finished by hand to capture an organic feeling that transforms the bath into a spa-like oasis. apaiser.com; kellyhoppen.com

Handcrafted and embossed with a textured crocodile print from Limoges porcelain, this precious box from L’Objet is a must-have for the bathroom, with plenty of space to stow keepsakes while feeling a bit like one on its own, thanks to its rich 24-karat gold border. l-objet.com

WITH A DISCERNING EYE FOR THE OPULENT, THREE VISIONARIES REFLECT ON THE DETAILS THAT COMPOSE THEIR DESIGNS.

BALANCED EQUATION LIVING ROOM

BOLD TOUCHES OF BLUE POP AGAINST A CHARMING SHIPLAP WALL AND LAYERS OF PATINATED WOOD IN THIS SPACE FROM DESIGNERS WENDY AND GREG BLACKBAND.

Shiplap walls seem to be a rarity in homes these days. This is one of the first rooms you see when you enter the home and we wanted it to be eye-catching. Adding the shiplap to the focal wall helped to bring in a necessary layer of texture. It gives the space a traditional yet coastal flair and draws the eye to the fireplace that we dressed with a modern, ocean-inspired art piece. Keeping all of the walls white, bright and clean allow the furnishings to do the talking.

The furnishings really do set the tone for the space. We love mixing wood tones with textures, as it keeps things casual and interesting. We purchased this navy velvet from Laura Ashley a few years ago and had been hanging onto it for the perfect project. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so glad we did because the velvet brought new life to the sofa. The mix of the opulent sofa and the deconstructed accent chairs paired with the jute rug is the perfect fusion of luxury and casual sophistication.

Were there any challenges? It was a task trying to figure out what to place in the niches on both sides of the fireplace. We wanted to keep this room light, airy and free of clutter. The challenge was giving the niches a nice composition and balance. We found balance in the blue-andwhite porcelain vases and filled them with water and small stones to raise the height of the leaves, only later to realize they were so heavy we could barely move them! It turned out just fine though.

MASTER BEDROOM A CREAMY PALETTE DRESSED WITH JEWELRY-LIKE OBJETS BECOMES THE HIGHLIGHT IN A CORNER OF THIS MASTER BEDROOM FROM DESIGNER WENDI YOUNG.

This vignette is so dreamy and lends itself to such an old-world feel. I sought to select relaxed finishes and accessories that reflected the Provence-style of this home. Originally decorated with gilded finishes and formal French furnishings, I stripped down the room’s heavy formality while maintaining the beautiful reclaimedwood floors and antique fireplace. I then updated the space with a pretty white paint on the wall panels and cabinetry. I just love the juxtaposition of the rock crystal sconces paired with the detailing of the bookcase and objets. The bookshelf is perfectly imperfect. When it comes to styling, it’s all about intuition. I suppose there are rules of thumb for styling, but I just place items where they feel right. The bookshelf is a collection of “found” pieces selected for their quiet, relaxed feel and earthy qualities: a glazed antique French pot, bone bead necklaces, a Chinese box with rustic painted details, books covered in brown paper, and a piece of coral. If you had to choose, what would you say you most admire here? The earthy, ethnic influences are what really resonate with me, as does the combination of refined with rustic, formal with relaxed. This room turns absolutely magical when the light streams through the windows in the afternoon. Cabinetry Hardware / J. Nicolas Architectural Imported Hardware / jnicolas.com.

DINING ROOM DESIGNER DEIRDRE DOHERTY BREATHES NEW LIFE AND CHARACTER BACK INTO A 1930S SPANISH BUNGALOW.

This room seems like such a juxtaposition of old and new. In keeping with a Spanish modern design theme, it was important to nod to the history of the home. We stained the floors and window frames to add contrast to the unusually high plaster relief walls, but chose to keep the ceiling as is since it is the original subroof. The perfect patina of the ceiling paired against the freshly painted walls, grounded with the aged antique rug, make the new pieces feel as if they have always been here.

Was the built-in bar original to the home? The wet bar was a feature original to the house, but we chose to redo the look and feel of it. We started the transformation with a hammered-copper sink; I found a local artisan who works with sheet metal to form the countertop and melt it seamlessly into the sinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge. The countertop came with a few scratches, and the fact that it will eventually patina was alluring to the client, who purposefully left drinks on it to dull down the finish.

The mix of dining chairs adds such a unique aesthetic. We knew from the start we wanted an informal look and a mix of chairs, so when it was time, I brought in a few mix-and-match pieces, eventually settling on this grouping. Three was the magic number in this space to make it feel purposefully eclectic yet not erratic. The mix of chairs and their seemingly random arrangement around the table bring in the relaxed atmosphere the client was looking for in this space.

UNDER THE AFFLUENCE To the upscale consumer—the Internet-savvy, seasoned traveler with a pulse on all the latest and greatest—there is almost nothing left that is off-limits. So, what exactly impresses the person who has everything? Driving the cool ride straight off the showroom floor isn’t enough anymore nor is the museum-quality masterpiece over the mantel or the multi-carat sparkler that catches the light just right. Today’s luxury living demands a completely one-of-a-kind experience, so we spoke to 10 of the industry’s most well-respected creatives—from the worlds of automobiles and technology to contemporary art and design—who are used to delivering just that. Find out what’s on their radars now.

How have consumers’ art-buying habits changed over the past three to five years? We are seeing more of clients collecting across different categories and eras. Many of today’s collectors are excited by the opportunity to hang a contemporary work alongside an Old Master or Impressionist painting. This is something we will be showcasing ahead of the London sale season with our curated “Masterpieces” exhibition, which will bring together highlights from all our major summer auctions.

What’s hot to collect right now? My advice to those looking to build a collection is to purchase work that you love. This could be paintings or prints by the giants of contemporary art, like Warhol and Richter, or younger artists, such as Jonas Wood and Danh Vô; the important thing is to follow your passion. Best way to display art at home? One of the most thrilling aspects of contemporary art is the multitude of forms it takes: from painting to installation, video to performance. For this reason, it presents new opportunities and challenges when exhibiting at home. Last October, we offered works from Giobatta Meneguzzo’s collection that had hung in his iconic Gio Ponti house. It’s an extraordinary example of what is possible when the disciplines of art and architecture work together.

COM_LX32_TheReport_234-241.indd 236

Is there a specific genre or time period of art that is in demand currently? The entirety of the contemporary art market is in a very strong place at the moment. Our May Contemporary Evening sale in New York was led by fantastic results for legendary names like Lichtenstein and Rothko, but we also saw new records for many artists working today, including talents like Christopher Wool and Mark Bradford. What is the best international show for art lovers to attend each year? The Venice Biennale opened in May, and I would urge any art lover to visit if they have the opportunity before it closes in late November. There is no better place to discover exciting new work—with the added bonus that it takes place in a stunningly beautiful setting! sothebys.com

Italian design house Zagato is a legend in the automotive industry, creating exclusive, custom versions of the world’s most soughtafter luxury vehicles for companies like Maserati, Ferrari and Aston Martin and private owners alike. One thing that remains consistent regardless of the emblem or badge on the cars’ hoods is the consumers’ desire for something unique, and according to Zagato CEO Andrea Zagato, design is key. “There’s something compelling about the freedom to explore new and different aesthetic solutions without having to follow mass-market trends,” he says. “Clients are turning to Zagato not only for one-of-a-kind trim and color but for the experience or adventure of making their own car rather than buying something as offered.” zagato.it

Co-founder of the design-art institution Carpenters Workshop Gallery, entrepreneur Loic Le Gaillard shares his input on the qualities that make lighting, furniture and accessories the ultimate must-haves for today’s well-connected collectors.

Craftsmanship: It’s the most important thing when you’re buying an item at a high price point. Using quality materials like bronze, aluminum and wood factor in here, but it’s the notion of something being crafted by hand that is truly hitting home with our clients. Name recognition: There are some designers who have a cache that can’t be touched. I love Wendell Castle (whose Dark Wish chair is showcased here); he’s amazing, and he’s just peaking now at the age of 82—delivering some of the best pieces of furniture he’s ever worked on. Ingrid Donat is also blowing me away with her pieces in bronze. Limited edition: Design and art fairs are becoming major grounds for elite consumers, with each one looking for something that will differentiate their collections from those of their friends and neighbors. Limited-series runs or one-of-a-kind pieces are the way to do it; people are really responding to our gallery’s ethos. carpentersworkshopgallery.com

When travelers are looking to get away, they want to feel like they’re really getting away. While they’re not willing to eschew the comforts of home (think: air conditioning and spa-approved toiletries), their hope is that a trip to a ranch in Montana will come with horseback riding and a menu full of interesting game staples or that a weekend in the Florida Keys will deliver straw-hut bars galore. For Chief Creative Officer Scott Colee, whose luxury boutique hotel management company Noble House’s portfolio includes Gateway Canyons in Colorado and San Diego’s Kona Kai, this change from the all-inclusive packages of yore was easy to foresee. “It’s about giving guests an experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else,” he says. “So, we work with local artisans during build-out and promote local breweries, wineries and cuisine.” noblehousehotels.com

LONDON CALLING

The recent release of Apple’s limited-edition, 18-karat gold watch has further highlighted a bit of a departure in the technology industry: It’s not enough to have the latest in digital advancements. Consumers must also feel like they are being presented with choices to help them express their individuality, whether it’s selecting the color of the finish on the back of their phone or picking the perfect fit for their wearable tech. It’s a trend that London-based Vertu has been keen to since it launched its first custom cell phone in 2002. “Consumer choice and the ability to use monograms, special colors or unique materials is commonplace in the luxury industry for valid reason,” says company CEO Massimiliano Pogliani. “It helps underpin the individual style of the buyer, which is paramount.” vertu.com

7 BALL

PLAYING

For celebrated event planner and entertainer extraordinaire Bronson van Wyck, a successful party is about more than food and flowers (though, if you’re in the throes of planning, he’ll be the first to tell you that a smattering of jewel-colored dahlias works beautifully for fall). Instead, it’s about creating an experience that attendees might never have dreamed of—like when his firm built an open-air chapel on a mountaintop valley in Aspen or completely tented Four Freedoms Park on New York’s Roosevelt Island. Catch up with the maestro’s top picks for an event to remember and start planning your dreamy fall fete now. Most important element of luxury entertaining? Lighting! No other element can transform your party (and your guests) like lighting. When it’s strategically placed, it gives everyone a glow-y boost (and acts like an instant Instagram filter). It should come from three levels: display votives below, taper candles at eye level and a glittering chandelier above. Hottest party trend? Hosts and guests alike are embracing fantastical themes like masquerade parties. When you dress up, you drink more, and when you drink more, you have more fun. Who’s your go-to for luxury tabletop décor? I love what Elad Yifrach has created with L’Objet. He takes my favorite things, like snakes, malachite and even fish scales, and brings them to the table with rich textures and luxurious colors. I also rely on Bellino for linens. What’s on the menu? I prefer serving comfort food or unexpected dishes, but there’s no doubt that fried chicken just tastes better when it’s served on china. Dress code? Yay or nay? Yes. You want your guests to feel comfortable, and nothing makes you feel more out of place than being overdressed or underdressed. Spell it out so people arrive feeling good and ready to have a ball. vanwyck.net

CROWN

JEWEL

Diamonds have been the go-to mineral-as-status-symbol since the 1930s, but new pioneers in the jewelry landscape, such as New York-based designer Monique Péan, have been finding inspiration from other rare materials, like fossilized walrus ivory, dinosaur bone and meteorite. The result is a diversified accessories experience that is quickly transforming what consumers think of when they talk about jewelry and what they’re gravitating toward when it’s time to wear it. Have consumers become more interested in manufacturing? I think that people are beginning to realize how important it is to consider how the materials used to create a piece of jewelry were sourced, as well as how it was assembled. We work with artisanal miners and mines that are dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. What is the appeal of the unusual materials you use in designs? Fossilized dinosaur bone is extremely rare, as it has been petrified during the fossilization process; its intricate patterns remind me of abstract art. I think that working with sustainable and natural materials that are simultaneously hard to

COM_LX32_TheReport_234-241.indd 240

find and beautiful connects with the larger message of protecting our environment and supporting slow design and indigenous art and culture. What other industries are you watching for inspiration? Each year, I take a trip to a new destination to find sustainable materials and partner with local artisans. My recent Seto collection was inspired by Japan and the juxtaposition between the country’s traditional art and the minimalist works of native architect Tadao Ando. I referenced the aerial view of Ando’s simple, graphic shapes against the island’s natural landscape by surrounding painterly patterned agate and lovely tourmalinated quartz with bold structural settings. moniquepean.com

BY THE YARD Is there anything more luxurious than a smooth Venetian silk? Maybe not, but major advancements in the textile industry are putting the newest crop of fabrics made from acrylic yarns in serious competition. For Donghia Creative Director Chuck Chewning, these lifestyle-friendly category defiers are changing the game. “There’s been a major movement to durability,” he explains. “People want to live comfortably with their children and their animals by their sides, but they don’t want to compromise on aesthetics and good looks. The strides we’ve made in outdoor fabrics in particular have been huge. We’re now able to recreate outdoor velvets and chenille that mimic the look and feel of the real thing so closely it’s incredible.” donghia.com

BUILT

ENVIRONMENT Architect Ted Flato, founding principal of San Antonio’s acclaimed design firm Lake Flato, finds inspiration for his firm’s impressive commercial and residential structures from the sites of the projects he undertakes. Here, he shares what his clients are looking for when crafting their high-end homes.

Sustainability: Energy conservation has gotten cool, and our clients are expressing a great deal of enthusiasm for locally sourced materials and craft. We’re now installing smart meters in all of our new builds so that we can monitor the performance of the house for the first year and adjust accordingly.

Outdoor connection: More and more of our clients are expressing interest in homes that provide a strong indoor/ outdoor experience in both urban and rural settings. Not only does it provide extra square footage, which is especially useful for entertaining, but it’s a strong indicator that our appreciation for the environment keeps growing.

Natural materials: While natural materials such as stone, marble and granite are inherently gorgeous, design lovers are also starting to appreciate materials like concrete, which have been overlooked traditionally. So much energy goes into pouring a concrete floor and when you factor in how it’s then ground, you get a real feel for the artisans’ handiwork. It’s an art form. lakeflato.com

AS K T HE EXPE RT What are your favorite styles to work on and why? I work with all styles, however my favorite is contemporary. Deceptively simple lines are the most challenging to create, demanding precision in all aspects of construction. I prefer architecture and design that is commensurate with my talents and experience. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? Commit to hiring a great team, allow for a collaborative process and be involved. Don’t hold back during the design phase. What would be your dream creative project? I would love to build something similar in complexity and logistical challenge to the Hearst Castle.

HULTON DEVELOPMENT, INC. In business for more than 27 years, Hulton Development has built a reputation for excellent construction and highly personalized service. The firm’s president and founder, Thomas R. Hulton Erickson, was raised in a family of carpenters. Starting with his Norwegian grandfather, and carrying on through his father and three brothers, the Erickson family has long kept to a tradition of home building. Having recently completed multiple residences across the country for an international billionaire, the firm is at the forefront of the luxury residential market, building and renovating homes that epitomize high-end comfort. Given the notable size and specificity of such projects, collaboration is imperative, something that Erickson and his team understand and value. “I enjoy sharing ideas with the owners, architects and designers on the team,” Erickson says. “My experience from other projects and my love for art and architecture enable me to contribute to the creative process. Being a part of this process early on makes it possible for my team to execute the design perfectly.” A believer in clean jobsites and careful attention to detail, Erickson instills in his team a desire to strive for more than the average home builder. Through building methods based on exactitude, the Hulton team fulfills the architect’s design and the client’s vision. Whether building a new home or working through a renovation, Hulton Development is equipped to handle the challenges that will inevitably arise. “I like the transformation of raw land or renovating a home and making it something very unique,” he says. “Building is a very measurable process, and I enjoy it.” Combining incredible materials, the best equipment, control systems and high-quality finishes, Hulton Development achieves precision and luxury in each design it brings to life.

TOP: The kitchen is the nucleus of a busy household. The owners wanted a space that was not only kosher, but centered in the home, with access to activities in any other room. BOTTOM: Natural light fills the upper level of a new master bathroom addition, featuring mirrors on both levels. Exposed block and wood accents reflect the exterior of the home, blending the two—a theme throughout the home.

Hulton Development teamed with domusstudio architecture to carve out the front yard, exposing the lower level to daylight. A new entry tower accessed via a cumaru bridge adds height and hierarchy to the home.

Good design is taking the owner’s lifestyle into consideration and incorporating the best use of site, natural ventilation, exposures, views and materials. –Thomas R. Hulton Erickson

Centered on a reconstructed fireplace faced with block, the living room space was simply created by the complex geometries of the home, creating an "eddy" while still being a part of the open floor plan.

HALABY RESTORATION AND PAINTING INC.

What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? I focus on creating something that will still be relevant and fresh in years to come. Most important? That the client is happy and the “wow” factor after everything comes together. What would be your dream creative project? A large, contemporary home with a mix of true high-polished automotive surfaces, beautiful veneers and natural wood finishes. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? Take time to define your vision and ideas, and convey it to your design team and me with certainty. Focus on the overall aesthetic of the rooms and avoid getting distracted by minute details. That is what your contractors and design professionals are trained to do.

As a third-generation artisan, Marc Halaby developed his passion for creating high-quality, eye-catching finishes by working with his father and brother at a young age, restoring fine art and antiques. “I honed my technical skills and appreciation for color and texture in the shop, working side by side with my dad, and found a way to bring this craftsman-style approach into the custom home industry,” Halaby shares. Orange County’s most demanding homeowners, builders, architects and designers have been dazzled by his creativity and ability to design and deliver exciting, new custom finishes project after project. Halaby and his 40-plus-person team deliver a level of professionalism and attention to detail that is still uncommon in the custom painting industry. “We take great pride in being able to handle any design request—whether it’s providing a true highpolished automotive finish, a natural stain finish or an old-world, handwaxed distressed finish, they are all part of our repertoire,” he says. How important are painting and finishes on the overall feel and aesthetic of a custom home? Halaby believes that the role they play is underestimated. “The finishes tie the architectural details together in a significant but subtle way. It is the first thing you notice when you walk into your home,” he asserts. “You can spend a million dollars on the design and fabrication of custom cabinetry and millwork, but without giving adequate attention to the quality of the finish, it jeopardizes the homeowner’s investment and satisfaction.” Halaby also believes that attention to detail will make or break a project, which is why he devotes so much time to understanding the client’s vision and personally translating it into exacting standards for his staff to follow.

ith their blended family of five children starting to leave the nest, Karyn and Damon Shelly began to think small. A North Laguna home—nearly half the size of their current place—met their downsizing goal, and its stunning views drew them in, but they found its Mediterranean style, dark cabinetry and heavy stone less compelling. Instead, their designer, Michael Fullen, says, “They wanted a contemporary style that was still warm enough to feel comfortable in. And since the home is beachfront, it was important to capture the indoor-outdoor possibilities.” The place was stripped back to its studs, paving the way for Fullen to layer in new materials and finishes and for architect Kirk Saunders to reconfigure parts of the floor plan. “We have two children in high school who are with us half-time and three in college,” Karyn says. And while none live there full-time, it was important to the Shellys that the house felt like home. To that end, Saunders cleverly squeezed in an additional bedroom and bathroom, as well as a hallway to improve flow. “Two of their older children are occasionally home together, so we created their area with two pods so they could each have a space within the space that was theirs alone but would act as a single bedroom when they weren’t together,” he says. For Damon, who frequently works at home, an office was added. “It occupies the old wine cellar,” says builder Chris Gallo. “We enclosed the space with glass walls, so if you’re inside working, you aren’t closed off from the rest of the family.” Adds Karyn, “It’s a perfect way for him to feel like he’s integrated into the house.” Reimagining the palette, Fullen incorporated colors from the surrounding hillside, ocean and beach, using neutrals accented with blues and greens. “It feels timeless,” he says. “The view commands all the attention, and rightfully so.” For the finishes, the designer opted for subtlety to create a calm backdrop—nothing reads as visually busy. “We used the same bronze finish for all the cabinet detailing, for instance,” he explains. “The desk, range hood

and fireplaces all have bronze details.” Other materials throughout the home repeat, as well. “All the wood surfaces were made from figured eucalyptus, obeche and rift-cut white oak,” Gallo notes. “A powder room wall, sink and counter were made of book-matched onyx.” Elsewhere, gleaming glass tiles bestow a jewel-like feel to another powder room and coverings in everything from leather to newsprint to sequins grace the walls. Fullen’s furniture choices lean toward pieces with crisp, elegant lines. “The look is clean and simple, but also comfortable and inviting,” Karyn says. “That was our caveat to the whole contemporary idea.” The sleek interiors help showcase the many design details that Fullen incorporated, such as a console featuring doors with a bone inlay in a starburst pattern. “My favorites are the living room sofas, which have an oak band over each sofa arm,” Fullen says. “It’s a unique detail that actually could function as a place to put your drink if you trusted yourself enough!” The designer also helped the couple place pieces from their art collection, which ranges from bronze sculpture to work by Los Angeles-based artist Anja Van Herle. Paintings by Laguna Beach artist Chris Gwaltney, whose work the Shellys had long been collecting, also appear in the house. “It is fitting that our most colorful and prominent pieces happen to be from a local,” Karyn says. The owners love having friends over for barbecues, host family from all over the world, and have even held a charity event, so the home needed to work for entertaining—and that meant a well-functioning kitchen. “The old kitchen was dark and didn’t have great flow,” Gallo says. “We created an open-concept feel that really brings in more light and air and takes advantage of the ocean views.” The team also reworked the floor plan to enhance circulation, placed the appliances more thoughtfully, and added an open nook pantry as well as cabinetry with custom storage. “We worked meticulously on designing every single cabinet and drawer,” Karyn says. “Every pot and pan has a home.” For their gardens, the Shellys turned to landscape architect Erik Katzmaier. “Karyn said she enjoyed succulents, and having worked with them in the past, I knew she wanted fruit trees and a small vegetable/ herb area,” says Katzmaier, who searched for structurally interesting succulents to give interest and scale to the outdoor spaces, opting for echeverias. “They have beautiful bronze tans and soft gray tans. The felt plants are also in gray tones and tie beautifully with the clean lines of the house.” He also chose apple trees that were espaliered to fit into narrow spaces, semi-dwarf citrus trees and a dwarf avocado tree. Ensconced in their new digs, the couple revel in being home. “There are so many woods and metals and textures, and it all flows together so nicely,” Karyn says. “One fun decision that Damon and I make every morning is, ‘Where do we have our coffee?’ In our master bedroom, we have a sitting area and a patio. There’s a corner window upstairs with two swivel chairs and a 180-degree view of the coast and Laguna Beach. For the first time in our lives, we have a home that we really love.”

elissa Kanarek was practically born a small business owner. “I liked to play shop when I was a little girl,” she recalls. “When my parents were going out, I’d confiscate my mom’s jewelry and my dad’s cuff links and make them purchase them from me—in Big League Chew currency— before accessorizing for their evening.” Flash forward a few decades, and Kanarek is the force behind Brass Tack, a custom upholstery practice and mercantile based in Laguna Beach. Not only does she hand-select the store’s globally sourced, fair trade and vintage goods (recent examples: limited-edition brass necklaces from Berlin, ceramic housewares made by a husbandand-wife team who live on a solar-powered farm in Temecula), she personally rolls up her sleeves to refurbish her clients’ most cherished pieces of furniture in the shop’s tiny work space. “Somebody once told me if you’re great at wrapping presents, you’ll be good at upholstery,” says Kanarek. As the partygoer who generally opted for the easy out of a gift bag, Kanarek didn’t appear to be the most likely candidate to appreciate the beauty of a perfect Y cut or the painstaking process of hessian bandaging (a centuries-old technique involving soaking strips of the fabric in wood glue to solidify a frame). But today, she is an ardent advocate for the endangered art of traditional upholstery. “It’s so satisfying when you know how to do just the right fold over a tricky corner,” enthuses Kanarek, who apprenticed in London under master upholsterer Aiveen Daly before working her way up to creative director. (Kanarek reached out to the legend after being awed by a chair of hers she stumbled upon in a magazine). “Traditional upholstery is meant to last a lifetime,” she says. “It’s a really lengthy and more laborious method than is commonly used today, but you can’t just take a Victorian settee and slap some foam on it and call it a day.” Kanarek’s clients, a mix of architects and interior designers, pop-in passersby and design-savvy locals, value her commitment to quality. And her hometown of Laguna Beach, with its artist colony roots, is the perfect base for Brass Tack. “People set up shop here and got their canvases out and started painting the ocean; the community has a history of being eclectic, open-minded and a little bit funky,” she says. “That’s definitely reflected in the shop.” Given Kanarek’s gumption and great eye, it’s easy to imagine Brass Tack expanding far beyond the shores of the Pacific. But she swears she has no plans for world domination. “I’d like to keep it small and cool,” she says. “And because our products are made by hand we really can’t produce for the masses, so it’s always going to be intimate—a little hidden gem.”

here’s no shortage of widely—and wildly— divergent architectural styles on Los Angeles’ Westside. But look closely in a quiet Pacific Palisades neighborhood, and you’ll see a new house that nimbly straddles traditional and modern. Set amid midcentury ranches, Mediterranean manses and New England-inspired farmhouses, the structure boasts standing-seam-metal pitched roofs, splitface limestone on the ground floor and wood siding above, and generously proportioned steel- and wood-framed windows. That such disparate elements come together so harmoniously is testament to the talents of architect William Hefner and designer Annette English, who succeeded in fulfilling the vision of their contemporary art collector clients. When they were discussing the form their new home would take, the couple was split right down the middle. “We liked the clean lines of modern and the warmth of traditional,” says the husband. Adds the wife, “People assumed one of us liked modern, and the other liked traditional, but we both liked both. We just didn’t know how to bring them together. We were impressed with William’s work after seeing the first home he showed us and we knew he was the architect for what we wanted to create.” Hefner, whose work comfortably spans styles and periods, welcomed the project. “The owners wanted familiar materials and details done in a traditional way on the exterior, but inside they wanted something simple and clean,” he says. “We worked hard to make those things coexist.” English, who also consulted on the architecture, agrees, adding, “From an architectural standpoint, they wanted all the elements to be very precise, very methodical, yet fun and relaxed.” Also high on the clients’ list of requirements was an abundance of natural light. Hefner’s solution was to break up the building—about 7,700 square feet in all— into smaller elements, so that each room has multiple exposures to the grounds that he also designed. A pivotal feature in his concept is a central courtyard, which brings

in light and ventilation and can be accessed from the living, dining and family rooms. Maximizing the house’s glazing required builders Ron Udall and Tyler Udall to do some creative problemsolving. “Manufacturing for wood windows is different than for steel,” Tyler Udall explains. “Making sure the glazing matched and that it also met all the requirements was definitely a challenge.” The entry stair posed another hurdle. “The placement was tricky, because it’s pressed right up against the window beside the front door,” he adds. “It was a matter of inches.” The modern elements hinted at on the exterior find full voice in the gallery-like entrance hall. But instead of artwork, the space offers a freestanding stair and a gray-painted glass wall inspired by artist Gerhard Richter. “We said, ‘Let’s make this glass wall the art,’•” explains English. “The staircase and the wall are that ‘wow’ moment when you walk in.” Another striking moment comes in the luminous living room, where a fireplace of split-face limestone and two walls of steel-framed windows bring the exterior’s material palette indoors. “At first I wondered, ‘Is this space not as interesting because it’s all-white?’•” English recalls. “Yet it’s the most spectacular room in the house.” A cocktail table by Israeli industrial designer Ron Arad, from the couple’s collection, sits like a piece of sculpture before a simple white sofa, while two green ceramic lamps add vintage whimsy. “They’re overscaled and a little outrageous,” says English. “If there’s a cohesiveness from one room to the next, it’s that every room can withstand a bold, interesting, fun piece of lighting.” The Australian-born designer’s love of one-of-a-kind and unusual light fixtures is part of her overall design philosophy, one she encouraged her clients to embrace. Recalls the wife, “Every time we went to her office, Annette pushed us to try things we’d never have thought of.” Such choices include Ray Power’s curvy suspension lamp made of wood veneer Möbius strips in the breakfast area, a liveedge acacia dining table and a floor-to-ceiling upholstered headboard in a guest bedroom. Hefner, likewise, urged the couple to consider alternatives, such as the organic, split-face limestone rather than the polished stone they had originally selected. “We tried to make choices that were timeless and classic,” he notes. “It was important to use materials that were enduring and that the owners could live with and not get tired of.” Just as interior detailing was kept to a minimum—primarily clean-lined rift-cut oak paneling and cabinetry and floors of oak or limestone—the palette is equally restrained, the perfect foil for the couple’s postwar art collection. “The clients wanted a serene, subtle sanctuary, not a lot of bold colors,” says English. “There’s a less-is-more experience here. When you walk through, you’ve got this volume that encapsulates you and allows the light to flood in.” The couple is grateful to have a house that expresses who they are, and as Hefner puts it, “has their fingerprints on it.” Says the husband, “Our personality really comes through. It’s just a great house to live in.”

t’s the kind of house that dreams are made of: A modern La Jolla dwelling nestles into a canyon, its grounds meshing effortlessly into the surrounding landscape. From the contemporary home’s terraces and balconies and along the pathways that wind around the property, glimpses of the homeowners’ impressive sculpture collection appear. “Our client’s father, the original owner of the property, had been a very active sculpture collector, and she wanted to celebrate that,” says architectural designer Fred Gemmell, whom the owners tapped to replace a Spanish-style home that originally stood on the site. Before construction could begin though, builder Ryan Hill had to contend with an unusual factor, given the region’s arid climate—water. To pump out a storm drain that ran underneath the property, Hill drilled dozens of

OCSD_LX33_Sinclaire_312-325.indd 314

caissons deep into the earth. “We had to send a remote GPS through the drain to map it,” he recalls, noting that, in water-starved Southern California, the precious resource has been diverted to an underground cistern where it can be used for irrigation. In fact, the presence—or absence—of water figures prominently into the home’s design. A dry creek bed runs parallel to the approach to the house, where a 50-footlong gallery space connects a one-story structure that includes the main living areas, master bedroom and bath to a two-story structure with four more bedrooms. The gallery tapers from one end to another, subtly following the contours of the V-shaped property. “There’s almost a forced perspective in that hallway, so it feels even longer and more dramatic than it really is,” says architect Lauren Williams, who, with designers Holly Howell and

Opposite: Carved into a hill, a stairway travels under a granite-and-iron sculpture by Faiya Fredman, part of the extensive art collection at a La Jolla house designed by Fred Gemmell and his team at Matrix Design Studio. Perched above is a site-specific structure by Michael Singer. Below: A granite bridge traverses drought-tolerant plantings—conceived by landscape architect Theresa Clark—and leads to a pivoting Fleetwood door from The Lusso Company at the home’s entrance.

Nico Gemmell, are part of Fred Gemmell’s team at Matrix Design Studio. Interspersed among large-scale paintings are frameless glass panels that slide into the wall, providing unobstructed access to the other pool area on the other side of the house. “You can literally weave in and out as you walk through,” Nico Gemmell says. “When our clients entertain, they open it all up.” To reinforce connections between inside and outdoors, the team used porcelain for the interior and exterior walls and floors. A custom dining table made with a slab of Indonesian suar wood and designed by Fred Gemmell straddles the envelope of the building, with part remaining inside and part underneath a covered outdoor patio—it also can be broken down into three separate sections to serve more intimate occasions. Outside, a swimming pool

OCSD_LX33_Sinclaire_312-325.indd 316

runs parallel to the terraced steps that cascade down the natural topography of the property. “By the time you swim to the end, it’s 10 feet off the ground with a vanishing edge on all three sides,” Fred Gemmell says, noting that the pool feeds the spa on the second level and a children’s wading pool at the bottom. “It’s a really fun, very sculptural element of the house.” Elsewhere, the concrete yields to a more organic environment, with oaks and other native plants, created by landscape architect Theresa Clark. “It wasn’t just horizontal planes to design gardens for but nearly vertical ones as well,” Clark says, pointing to bamboo installed in raised trapezoidal planters along the lowerfloor guest room hallway—just one of several distinct zones that she created throughout the property.

Opposite: Gemmell envisioned the house as another sculptural element in the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landscape. Floor-toceiling doors by Fleetwood disappear into the walls, fostering a connection between inside and outdoors. The exteriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fontana Arte Riga sconces are from Urban Lighting. Below: In the great room, Camerich sectionals from Hold It Contemporary Home give the family a comfortable place to enjoy the fireplace, which features a boldly patterned mix of granite and sandstone from Amazon Stones.

Opposite: Open to the patio, great room and dining room, the kitchen includes a DCS cooktop, and Miele ovens and a microwave, all from Pirch. Lapitec porcelain from Tutto Marmo tops the work surfaces, and walnut stools from MOS / MyOwnSpace pull up to the outer island.

The great room’s game table is part of a larger three-piece table crafted from a slab of suar wood. Designed by Gemmell and fabricated by Brassington Caseworks, it is mounted on casters and can be rolled to the dining room when requred for large gatherings.

A decomposed granite pathway leading up the hill to the gazebo, for example, runs underneath a large boulder held by two iron beams. “It’s held up semiprecariously, so it gives someone pause,” she says. “I like choreographed moments that allow you to stop and consider before moving forward.” The house, too, is full of such moments thanks to a subtle palette of wood tones with stone accents that were selected so that the focus remains on the exterior. “There’s sort of a tone-on-tone aspect,” Fred Gemmell says. “The idea was to have the architecture serve as the background for their art and the landscape.” Custom cabinetry with bleached-koa veneers are paired with

OCSD_LX33_Sinclaire_312-325.indd 320

dramatic black-and-white-patterned stone—a mix of granite and metallic sandstone—that has been used throughout the home. “It all marries together,” Howell says. “It’s one look, and you feel it all the way through.” Indeed, the owners and design team are thrilled with the results of their close collaboration. “We want our clients to feel like they have created a space that has meaning to them and offers solutions to the way that they want to live,” Fred Gemmell says. And according to Nico Gemmell, the new home conforms to both the landscape and their clients’ character. “This house really feels like an ode to the wife’s love for her family,” she says, “and that makes us feel like we’ve done a successful project.”

A hanging Dedon Swingrest in the great room provides a whimsical place to relax and enjoy the views of the infinity-edge swimming pool and fire pit. Inside, the cabinets are made of bleached figured koa, designed by Gemmellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firm and fabricated by Brassington Caseworks.

A sculptural fan circulates the air above the master suiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Poliform Arca bed. The painting is by Arthur Okamura. French oak from Sterling Interiors/Design covers the floor here as well as throughout many other spaces in the residence. A wall separates the bedroom from the bath, leaving most of the space open.

The dramatic black-and-white stone from Amazon Stones also appears in the master bathroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shower, creating a sculptural element within the spa-like space. The Victoria + Albert tub, with an Aquabrass faucet, is from Pirch.
