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.

Luxe Interiors + Design has been in the thick of planning our two big annual events: Battle of the Chefs Portland and Battle of the Chefs Seattle! These businessbuilding evenings always deliver a fantastic experience as teams compete in an Iron Chef-style culinary challenge. Despite the sneaky sabotage—all in the name of fun—lots of laughs are had and friendships begun. I’m already fielding many calls and emails from people who want in on a Battle of the Chefs 2015 team. Those teams will be announced the night of the event. Battle on!

GET TO KNOW PACIFIC NORTHWEST INFLUENCERS AS THEY SHED LIGHT ON WHAT’S OF THE MOMENT IN DESIGN, ART AND ARCHITECTURE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

KATHERINE ANDERSON

What’s intriguing you now in floral design? My background is in landscape architecture, so I’m a huge fan of Seattle’s Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. They always have the most gorgeous minimalist designs that are also sensuous. I love that they partner with really great plant specialists to be able to include a lot of native species into their work. Floral forecast: I feel a little bit like the wild romantic arrangement is just about played out. I don’t really know what’s next except for maybe designers showing a little more restraint and just a general tightening up of things. On your radar: The architectural team at Suyama Peterson Deguchi in Seattle is phenomenal for its attention to material and detail on every level. I also continue to be amazed by work from the wonderful designers I carry in my shop, such as potter Judy Jackson in New York. I love supporting her. One to watch: I always keep an eye on what Saipua’s Sarah Ryhanen is doing. With her business partner, Nicolette Owen, she runs the Little Flower School in Brooklyn, and its aesthetic is truly beautiful. Hip hood: Pioneer Square is transcendent. My partner, James Beard Award-winning chef Matt Dillon, and I just opened our hybrid restaurant and flower shop, London Plane, there a year and a half ago. Since then, a lot of new restaurants, shops and art galleries have joined us, and it’s amazing to be a part of that energy and growth. Up next: I’m pouring my efforts into growing the product business a bit more and expanding our line of Marigold & Mint botanicals. In

addition, I recently partnered with an artist and will be releasing a new candle and soap offering, Cannabis and Coffee, that pairs two stereotypical things about Seattle. It’s a great scent with wonderful packaging. Katherine Anderson is the owner of several Seattle-based institutions, including floral shop Marigold & Mint. Besides her family, her favorite thing in her home is a Codor Design mirror—a gift from her husband.

2 THE DESIGNER MARIANNE SIMON

What’s intriguing you in design? I’m always fascinated by traditional architecture, and the works from the teams at G. P. Schafer and Ferguson & Shamamian in New York are awe-inspiring. I could stare at their beautiful buildings for hours on end. Can’t get enough of: I have always been obsessed with Washington, D.C.-based designer Darryl Carter’s incredible interiors. There is something about his approach and the restraint in his projects that completely mesmerize me. What’s trending? Wallpaper; I hope it never goes out of style again. At least one room in every project I design gets a wallpaper treatment. It’s what makes a room come alive! I love Phillip Jeffries’ grass-cloth wallcoverings because they add interest to a room without relying on pattern. I’m also a big fan of Kravet, Farrow & Ball, Cole & Son and Schumacher. Shop ’til you drop: I love Old Bellevue and Seattle’s Madison Valley when it comes to doing a little retail therapy. You simply cannot go to Seattle without visiting some of my favorite shops: Watson Kennedy, Red Ticking and Susan

Wheeler Home. It’s also worth checking out Haystack Antiques in Bellevue. For the design-obsessed: The Chihuly Garden and Glass and Pacific Galleries are not to be missed; plus, there are tons of wonderful galleries that have popped up in Pioneer Square. There’s nothing I like better than taking a walk through that neighborhood. Go-to event of the fall season: I’m looking forward to attending the Front Row Fashion Runway Show presented by Vogue at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue on September 26. Fashion and interior design go so nicely hand-in-hand. Bellevue-based interior designer Marianne Simon specializes in timeless interiors with traditional bones. She has a large, well-loved collection of Chanel shoes and oversize design books.

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

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

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.

The husband-and-wife duo behind design firm Carrier and Company may be self-admitted bohemians, though you wouldn’t be quick to make that guess from a peek at their vast portfolio of highprofile clients: think Anna Wintour and Jason Wu, amongst many other fashion greats.

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.”

MEMORY BANK NEAR THE SHORES OF LAKE COMO, PROMEMORIA’S ROMEO SOZZI DRAWS ON HIS FAMILY’S RICH TRADITION OF CRAFTSMANSHIP, CREATING DISTINGUISHED FURNISHINGS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. WRITTEN BY LISA BINGHAM DEWART PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ

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.

WHY: In addition to a treasure chest of wardrobe inspiration, Marino acts as a really well-dressed travel guide to some of the hippest parts of the city—no reservations required. IN HER WORDS: “I like my photos to be colorful because life is. Even though my outfits are monochromatic, I try to find interesting backdrops to liven up the looks: streets enclosed with foliage, brick buildings and cool, textural concrete walls.”

TALKING SHOP WITH KELLY ASMUS

BLUEPRINT RAINIER SQUARE

“A building must be like a human being. It must have a wholeness about it, something that is very important.” This quote from architect Minoru Yamasaki easily sums up what the Japanese-American architect hoped to achieve when he designed the Rainier Tower in the center of Seattle back in 1977. And it’s this sentiment that continues to inspire the Wright Runstad & Company team as they are in the process of developing the area around the iconic landmark. The company’s proposed $600-million, mixed-use development will boast a 56-floor office and residential tower, as well as surrounding structures for retail, dining, and hospitality pursuits. It is slated for completion in 2019. rainiersquare.com

When did you open? We began as a pop-up shop in the fall of 2014 and fell in love with the possibilities, so we reopened permanently in June 2015 at 4804 SE Woodstock Boulevard in Portland. What products do you offer? All of our furniture is designed in-house and built by our own master craftspeople from solid hardwood. We use time-honored joinery techniques to create beautiful pieces in a variety of modern and traditional designs. Describe the space. Every woodworker at The Joinery had a hand in building at least one permanent design element: from the reception desk made from locally harvested Western Walnut and salvaged 100-year-old fir beams to the quarter-sawn white-oak butcherblock kitchen table. Up next? We’re regularly debuting new products that incorporate trends and enhance our sustainability efforts. Recently, we introduced a hall tree and a particularly handsome rolling bar cart. thejoinery.com

CURATOR MUSEUM OF

CONTEMPORARY CRAFT “The curatorial program at the Museum of Contemporary Craft is based on seeing craft as a verb—which provides inherent flexibility and room to explore practices in new and different ways. For example, we can talk about the production of kiln-formed glass alongside roots harvested to make baskets or historic textiles next to an Arduino computer that reads glaze colors and converts them to sound. Our collection provides a rich heritage and context to investigate Portland’s role in the American Studio-Craft movement and lets us ask new questions. It’s important to go outside of the typical places when searching for art or design and to be open to seeing something different.”

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 LUKAS PEET

“Bau-Xi is a modern twostory art gallery located on South Granville in Vancouver. It represents some of my favorite contemporary artists, including Janna Watson, Heidi Leverty and Cara Barer. Every time I walk past the storefront window, I discover a new talent.”

“Vancouver Art Gallery is in a beautiful historic building and has worldclass exhibitions, as well as a permanent collection of over 10,000 pieces of art. I always enjoy viewing the large collection of Emily Carr paintings that it has on display.”

“I love the work of artist April Coppini. Her charcoal drawings are realistic, and I’m entranced by her wild hand. I’m also a fan of Eugenia Pardue, who does very simple all-white canvases using relief objects underneath. They’re stunning and overscale, which works great for my interior design projects.”

-ANGELA ROBINSON

-PATRICIA GRAY

-VICKI SIMON

For Lukas Peet, design is a family affair. Growing up under the tutelage of his father, Rudi—a renowned jewelry designer and metalsmith—Peet crafted his first object at a young age. “Throughout my childhood, my dad, brother and I were always working on projects together,” says Peet. “He taught us a lot of techniques and invaluable skills.” Since then, he has used those same fundamentals, as well as the methods gleaned during his time at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, to build the basis of his own lines of lighting, furniture and flatware for the home. Here, the natural-born talent talks about his creative process and the things that are inspiring him now. lukaspeet.com Describe your aesthetic. When designing, I primarily center my work around the desired function of the object. Coupled with the appropriate material and technique, the aesthetic of the design is a result of this process. I can be inspired by anything—whether it’s a color, material, shape, form or fabrication technique. Share your process. Through sketching, I work out the basic direction of the object. Then, once I have a few ideas I like, I translate them onto the computer— both are important parts of the process. At some point, the object will have to be produced, so I start a discussion on how to ensure that it’s then proportionately accurate, working with the manufacturer to iron out the details.

How has Vancouver influenced and inspired your work? I moved here after graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. I wanted to live and work in Canada, and Vancouver seemed to be the best fit for me. There is a small but successful design community here with companies such as Bocci, Bensen and Molo. It’s not necessarily known as a design hub, though, which is nice since I don’t really like being in the spotlight. I like having a place where I can focus on my work. Best local haunts? I frequently go to the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Contemporary Art Gallery, and I also love to check out what’s new at the Equinox, Winsor and Catriona Jeffries galleries. I’m a big fan of sculpture, photography and contemporary art.

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 TAMARA CODOR

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to live in your favorite furniture showroom, you’ll find a fast friend in Tamara Codor. The Seattle-based interior designer has taken that longtime design-lover fantasy and turned it into a reality with her Floor 13 Airbnb rental. Forgoing a traditional shopfront, Codor has instead outfitted a prime spot in downtown Seattle with pieces from her own line of case goods and upholstered pieces, and has been inviting her successful crop of design and architecture friends to spend a night amongst some of her favorite things, while also providing in-depth itineraries of all the must-see shops, restaurants and antiques jackpots in the area to make their stay one they won’t forget. Here, we tap Codor for her picks for a fun-filled day in the city. codordesign.com

10 a.m. Head over to Georgetown to check out Kirk Albert Vintage Furnishings and Susan Wheeler Home, two stores that carry some of the most interesting finds in Seattle. Both Kirk and Susan have a great eye for the whimsical, unique and refined. 12 p.m. If you are hungry by this time, stop by the Ba Bar. It is a great Vietnamese street-food restaurant in a lovely old building, which is— happily—on the way to the Glasswing shop on

Capitol Hill with its wonderful collection of clothing, objects and gifts. 2 p.m. For a little culture, check out the Frye Art Museum; its gift shop has been carefully curated by Charlie Schuck of Object. The Bellevue Arts Museum is incredible too. It has a craft-oriented focus and always has surprising and impressive exhibits. 4 p.m. I highly recommend getting to the Ballard neighborhood to visit Curtis Steiner in his eponymous shop. This is where you will find some of the most beautiful handmade and antique jewelry, along with other exquisite items. Plus, you may get to see Curtis working on his amazing calligraphy and dreamy watercolors in his airy, open studio. 5 p.m. Stop by Baby & Company. It sells

wonderful handmade clothing sourced from small designers from all over the world, which makes it a must-see if you’re in the area. The owner, Jill Donnelly, has style in spades and what she’s bringing to the shop can’t be found anywhere else in Seattle. 6 p.m. At this point, you should be ready for dinner, and Bar Sajor always delivers an amazing experience. All the food there is cooked over an open fire, and it’s always exciting to see what the chef comes up with, thanks to the everchanging menu. 8 p.m. After dinner, take advantage of Seattle’s famous cocktail scene: Damn the Weather, Good Bar and E. Smith Mercantile are all within very easy walking distance, and I promise they won’t disappoint you!

IN STEP PHOTOS: COURTESY UNITED NUDE. DATE BOOK PHOTOS: COURTESY CODOR DESIGN.

9 a.m. For breakfast, I always recommend London Plane, a beautiful, open and airy restaurant market that sells all sorts of pastries, fresh salads, flowers and books. Then, if you are interested in trying true locally roasted coffee, you can walk a block over to Elm Café.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

DACOR

Established in 1948 by Stan Joseph, Dacor was founded upon the premise that innovation must matter. 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.”

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.”

BALDWIN HARDWARE STEEPED I N H IS T ORY , COMMI TTED TO T H E FUTURE: BALDWIN’ S B E S T PRACTICES Trademarks. Baldwin is known as a finish leader in the industry. Well-defined lines and intricate details are signs of a quality-made piece of hardware.

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.

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.”

1

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.

2

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 249

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

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

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

ORGANIC OUTLOOK LIVING ROOM

TAKING CUES FROM THE SURROUNDING SCENERY, DESIGNERS SOPHIE BURKE AND JENNIFER MILLAR INFUSE THE INDOORS OF THIS HOME WITH EARTHY ELEMENTS.

This room is the epitome of natural beauty and tranquility. Nestled in the heart of the mountains, this space reflects the encompassing environment. In the design, we used organic materials as much as possible and natural hues to reflect the gorgeous terrain; these facets bring a certain level of comfort and serenity to the space. Designer Christian Liaigre always seems to master the balance between rustic and modern, and this served as our inspiration.

Tell us more about the materials infused throughout. Since the fir ceiling was so high, we felt it necessary to ground the space with darker elements, following through on this idea with dark leather armchairs and a dark stain on the walnut coffee table. The Pennsylvania bluestone on the fireplace was carried over from the front entry of the home and was also used for paving stones outside, providing a continuity of materials throughout the entire house.

What drew you to these streamlined furnishings? The room needed furniture with appropriate scale in order for the pieces not to feel lost beneath the lofty ceiling. This large sectional provided just that, and the fabric works really well with the oak floor and gray wool rug. We love that this space feels comfortable, warm and inviting. Nothing is too precious and the overall look of the room offers a contemporary aesthetic without being too cold.

CLOUD NINE

DINING ROOM DESIGNER KATIE HACKWORTH UTILIZES CAREFULLY CHOSEN ELEMENTS TO CURATE A SPACE THAT’S COMFORTABLE ENOUGH FOR A DINNER PARTY OR A SOLO SOIRÉE.

Let’s talk details about your approach for this prominent room. The combination of modern and vintage elements is a common thread throughout my work. My clients appreciate modern lines, yet also desire a home that their family can relax and live in. This relatively small dining space is a pathway from the foyer into the kitchen. Due to the room’s tight quarters, I chose a streamlined table to allow for several dining chairs if needed without cramping up the space.

What drew you to this wallcovering? We had some fun in the powder room by applying a wallcovering with fluorescent pink-and-orange blooms. That particular room is just off the hallway from this space, so I wanted a wallcovering here that both complemented and contrasted the boldness of the powder bath. This pick was a no-brainer and the perfect pairing with the white wainscoting.

PHOTO: BELATHÉE PHOTOGRAPHY.

The furnishings feel as if they’ve always belonged. I enjoy playing up opposites to create something new and did so here through the décor. The wool serapi actually arrived somewhat smaller than specified, but we were so in love with it that we decided to layer the sisal rug beneath it in order to achieve the larger size we needed. The brown leather chairs lend a feeling of both warmth and history, accented with a fluffy throw.

LIVING ROOM DESIGNER MICHELLE DIRKSE CREATES A STUDY IN COLOR CONTRAST BY FASHIONING A ROOM TO ECHO THE VIBRANT DISPOSITION OF HER CLIENTS.

You don’t seem shy about color here. What sparked such a vivid aesthetic? The project was inspired by the clients’ personalities and tastes. They enjoy entertaining, so it was important to create a space that allowed for that. They both have a lively energy about them; plus, the lady of the house loves the color fuchsia. While the clients are drawn to bold hues, I didn’t want to go overboard, so I found balance through neutral finishes and furniture paired with strong rugs, pillows and artwork. The art you chose for this space is really something special. I feel like I lucked out with the art. It’s often hard to find the perfect pieces, and clients don’t always want to make the investment. The artwork I used here is from local artists Noël Fountain and Mya Kerner. Noël’s painting above the buffet brings in a richness of color and texture, while Mya’s cast-iron wall sculpture highlights the fireplace and injects geometry into the space. I had originally borrowed the pieces from both artists, but once they were in place, the clients couldn’t resist making them permanent! Any happy accidents to report? As I mentioned before, the client loves fuchsia, but I couldn’t find the right pre-made pillow in that shade and the room just didn’t feel right without one. Luckily, I had some leftover fuchsia fabric from a pillow I’d designed with local artist Kyle Hepworth, which I was able to reuse here. Bench / Jonathan Adler / jonathanadler.com.

THE LUXURY INDUSTRY’S BIGGEST PLAYERS SHARE THEIR FORECASTS FOR THE FALL SEASON. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

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.

Sotheby’s Cheyenne Westphal has overseen every major contemporary art sale in Europe since 1999 as co-head of the well-respected auction house’s contemporary art team. As such, the German-born dynamo knows a thing or two about what is consistently making it onto collectors’ wish lists. Here, Westphal puts the art industry into picture-perfect focus.

STATE OF

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

3 THE MOLD BREAK

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

MATERIAL MAGIC Dr. Andrew Dent spends his days culling over the newest modern materials and technologies for his role as vice president of library and materials research for international creative database Material ConneXion. As a result, Dent is on the forefront of the new industrial revolution, touting 3D printing, composite materials and PVD coating as the next big things. Of all the magical items to cross his desk, however, he does have one favorite: “I’m really crazy about something called Willow Glass right now,” he says. “It is thin, hard, flexible glass that can also be rolled up. It is currently being used as a hardtop surface for steels, plastics and painted finishes as a way of creating real glass, scratchresistant surfaces for other materials.” materialconnexion.com

GUEST OF

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

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

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

P

eople who have lived abroad usually want a house with a little more character,” designer Garrison Hullinger says of his clients, an energetic couple who spent most of the yearlong project living in London. “I think that’s why they embraced our design. Their life experiences have given them a greater desire to have interesting things surrounding them.” During the frequent transatlantic videoconferences, the couple encouraged Hullinger to flex his creative muscles on the interior of their family home, just a stone’s throw from one of Portland’s many parks. “We wanted it to be young and fun despite our somewhattraditional style preferences,” the husband says. “Finding the right places to push and be bolder with color to offset the neutral palette was key.” To set the scene for the updated interiors, Hullinger began by eliminating the quasi-Tuscan interior elements, which included cherry cabinetry, bronze hardware and ornate fixtures that complemented neither the home’s cedar-shingle exterior nor the personality of its new owners. Gleaming white paint gives the kitchen cabinetry and built-ins throughout the house a more contemporary look and established a fresh backdrop for Hullinger’s vision. “The cabinets were in good shape, so it didn’t make sense to tear them out,” builder Patrick Richardson says. “The difference between before and after is shocking.” Not all of the cabinets were left intact, though. In place of a built-in unit that took up an entire wall in the family room, Hullinger installed a custom media center made of reclaimed wood. “It gives the room texture and depth,” he points out. In the dining room, Richardson squared the formerly arched built-in shelving and created a visual counterbalance to the river-rock fireplace by adding white faux box beams and tongue-in-groove paneling to the ceiling. “We work a lot with Patrick, and the quality is always there,” Hullinger notes.

“PEOPLE WHO HAVE LIVED ABROAD USUALLY WANT A HOUSE WITH CHARACTER.” -GARRISON HULLINGER

PNW_LX25_Garrison_292-301.indd 294

Against the updated backdrop, Hullinger wove in vibrant color. In the kitchen, for instance, an electric blue island sets the area firmly apart from the newly painted cabinetry, and he took more inspiration for the palette from the family’s daily rituals. “They make smoothies every morning, so their countertops are always covered with fresh fruit, and I wanted my design to match that,” says the designer. So, rather than repeating a particular shade, Hullinger highlighted certain areas with bold hues—mint pendants above the island, a hot pink chair at the built-in desk. “The change in color did a lot to make it feel more alive,” the husband explains. “Nothing is too out there for Garrison, and he loves crossing traditional design lines, so we paired up really well in that respect. There were lots of laughs during our brainstorming sessions.” Though the long-distance collaboration may have been unconventional—Hullinger often sent packages stuffed with swatches for approval to his globe-trotting clients—it yielded exactly the mix of textural fabrics and interesting patterns that the owners craved. In one case, a wallcovering with an updated trellis pattern in the front foyer creates interest and emphasizes a wall niche. The designer created a more subtle expression in the master bedroom, covering the wall behind the upholstered headboard with a soft wood-grain pattern. “If you use wallcoverings in small, poignant ways, they become a splash of art,” Hullinger explains. “It’s another layering piece.” The home’s exterior received its own update, as well. Along the back of the house, Richardson dismantled separate decks off the kitchen and master bedroom and reused the wood to build a large ipe-clad deck that is accessible from both spaces. “It’s absolutely awesome,” Richardson says. “It was challenging, but we have an amazing group of guys who do stellar work.” From the reconfigured deck, a grand staircase leads down to the backyard, which was reimagined into three spaces by landscape architects Steve Shapiro and Blair Didway. “It’s a very traditional home, and we created an English garden that reflects that architecture,” Shapiro says. In addition to a large grassy lawn, perfect for children’s play and sports, they created a concrete terrace with a hot tub and seating area, as well as a spot for a boccie-ball court and a fire pit. To address a drainage problem, they dug a dry stream that was enhanced with boulders and plantings. The extensive variety of the plants and foliage—hydrangeas, ornamental grasses and lavender, to name a few—provides color throughout the year. During the project, the wife accepted a promotion that pushed their timetable up. Despite the added pressure, the group completed the project in time for the family to move in as planned. “Remodeling is both a thrill and an agony,” the husband says. “It took amazing team of people to make it all work.”

J

ennifer and Ron Rich are time travelers, of sorts. Their Portland shop, Oblation Papers & Press, is a treasure trove for all things paper. Hanging from 8-foot-tall towers are around 100 different types of paper, including exotic lokta sheets from Nepal, ornate Florentine papers and fine stock from the Amalfi Coast—many of which are made using traditional methods. Stationery, custom letterpress suites and greeting cards line the walls, and their on-site paper mill produces around 75 pounds of recycled paper each week. The once run-down Pearl District warehouse is very much alive with rhythmical click-clacks of the machines. “Sometimes customers ask if there is a person taking a bath in the back,” says Jennifer. “But it’s just our paper mill making splashing sounds as it runs a sheet through the water.” While most people sip mai tais on their honeymoon, the couple spent their first month as newlyweds blending plants and grasses into paper pulp—that was more than 25 years ago. Since then, the couple have moved beyond do-it-yourself experimentation and now travel the world, sourcing products and learning new techniques. Just last year, they ventured to a 16th-century paper mill in Prague and later imported its handmade paper and decorative boxes to sell in their boutique. Besides serving as the operation’s buyer, Jennifer designs her own vintage-inspired cards, featuring lines from Shakespeare and Proust. Ron, who primarily handles wholesale, creates his own collection of cards with witty sayings. And they don’t stop there. They’re constantly cooking up new plans. “It usually starts by drinking a bottle of wine—I recommend the BV pinot noir—while sautéing some leeks or kale from the garden,” says Ron. “Creative banter then ensues and can easily result in new project ideas.” One such project led to acquiring and reselling vintage typewriters. “I found a guy who had about 250 typewriters,” he says. With help from a colleague and a local typewriter shop, he has been working his way through them. True to its name’s meaning, Oblation constantly offers up the unexpected. The Riches spent a week in Japan this past summer choosing merchandise for the shop (with a stop at a World Heritage washi paper-making facility in Saitama), including small leather Midori traveler’s notebooks, which are extremely rare in the United States. “Portland has developed an appetite for fine artisan goods that are hard to find,” says Jennifer. “We are here to provide things that are beautiful and rare in this world of electronic communication.”

fter living in a traditional Tudor-style residence, a retired Seattle businessman was ready for another approach. “I wanted a home that was different and reflected a new phase of my life,” he says. So, he turned to designer Jules Thomas to fashion this next phase. “I saw this spark in him—a Southerner’s ease mixed with corporate toughness—and decided to push the envelope,” she explains. “He trusted me to move forward with a design that was new to him.” Looking beyond the dated oak cabinetry, pink marble and Sheetrock railings, Thomas “envisioned a masculine home with a soft edge,” she says. “I wanted to bring a freshness to the combination but with a sense of history as well.” The new spaces would conjure a 1930s Parisian gentlemen’s smoking club—mixing the relaxed sophistication of the Ritz Paris’ Bar Hemingway with a vibe that evokes the effortless ease of actor Jack Nicholson. Getting that Paris-in-Seattle feel required an extensive undertaking on the part of both Thomas, who worked with Alev Seymen, a former project manager at Castanes Architects, for the drawings, and builder Klaus Toth. For Toth’s part, he ensured that every detail—from the living room’s dramatic custom fireplace to a tailored staircase railing near the entry—was installed with the utmost care. “The quality of the finishes was essential to this project,” says Toth, who worked on the home with superintendent Chris Nason. In the combined living-dining room, for instance, the sterling-silver-leaf ceiling, which now perfectly aligns with black plaster walls, was a challenge that required careful engineering. “There are points of connection where different materials come together,” Toth says. For example, high-gloss wood-panel walls, black hardwood floors, mirrored walls with glass moldings, Italian plaster surfaces, white veined marble, and full-height tile and stone wall finishes all make an appearance in the home. “A lot of thought was spent on those unions:

what the material choices would be and how they’d play together,” he says. “Jules also wanted to celebrate the light and how it reflects off these different finishes.” For the color palette, Thomas chose a black backdrop punctuated by metallics and white. “I thought it would be elegant yet understated, like Seattle, to play the gray light off a black palette in a variety of finishes from muted steel and mohair to lacquered walls,” she says. “I let the light in the spaces dominate over the idea of a color scheme. It’s really the absence of color in favor of enhancing the natural light.” To capture the natural brightness and to better match the scale of the house, the designer raised the doors and ceilings—those doors and windows will frame the gardens that are currently being designed

by landscape architect Kenneth Philp. Thomas then considered the custom staircase, which features a bronze railing and blackened-steel posts. The black hue of the plaster walls became a beautiful canvas for an extensive art collection that includes Peter Waite’s large acrylic on panels that hangs in the dining room. “My client picked pieces he really loved,” says Thomas, who helped the homeowner curate the various works. The graphic yet luminous palette well serves the luxurious surfaces. “Each finish or surface in this home was part of a layer cake,” Toth says. “There were so many materials to consider and finishes laid on top of each other that create a unified look.” Those layered elements that Thomas chose include the dining room’s black plaster

A Jean de Merry sconce illuminates a wall in the dining room. Thomas tapped the skills of Seley Painting Services for the custom paint and lacquer finishes throughout the house and called upon the talents of Studio C for the plaster, stenciling and sgraffito work, as well as the silver-leaf ceilings.

In the living room, a brass coffee table and sinewy leather armchairs rest on a custom silk-and-cashmere rug, and the dining room’s cozy tufted banquette effortlessly pairs with bespoke cabinets and two tables for dining flexibility. “Every detail plays off each other seamlessly,” she says. Meticulous details can also be found in the kitchen, where custom lacquered cabinets with inlaid bronze-and-nickel trim balance the creamy marble countertops etched with a linear motif. “There’s so much depth to this project and blending of finishes that’s very cool,” Toth says. The renovated abode now reflects Thomas’ client perfectly. “A house has to really belong to its homeowner in every way, like a custom-tailored suit,” she says. And the personality of the owner is truly displayed in each area of his house. “If you want a home that’s a personal reflection, a designer with a critical eye is key,” he says. “I love how the dark walls and floors add warmth to the house and reflect light. The finished product is absolutely magnificent.”

PAINTING WITH WOOL AND SILK FIBERS, A PORTLAND ARTIST CREATES LANDSCAPE COMPOSITIONS THAT ARE BOTH ABSTRACT AND VIVID. WRITTEN BY TARYN BICKLEY / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOHN VALLS

I

am hugely motivated by color,” says Portland-based artist Jennifer Freudenberger. To create her vivid, abstract landscapes, though, she turns not to a painter’s traditional watercolors and oils, but to Italian-dyed merino wools and silks. Applying a pure colorblending process, her art exudes an ombré allure achieved through a layering process of shade and sheen. “I call it color migration,” says Freudenberger, who employs traditional wetfelting techniques—the process of using hot water and soap—to shrink the fibers and form felt. “The process turns the fibers into the canvas and the painting simultaneously,” she explains. “Never knowing exactly how the colors will blend nor how much the felt will shrink makes each piece wonderfully fun and entirely unique.” The New Mexico-raised child of artist parents, Freudenberger trained as an architect and still practices, although she has turned more emphatically to her art. “With architecture, the scale is huge,” she explains. “While I owe a lot to the field and still love collaborating, I crave the stuff that’s hands-on.” She found that outlet some 10 years ago when she became acquainted with fiber during a two-day workshop at the Oregon College of Art and Craft. “It took me many years of self-taught exploration— trying and discarding many formats—to arrive at paintings in felt,” she recalls. “I realized that the perfect mode for my exploration was to mount the flat pieces I was making and hang them on the wall.” Freudenberger’s approach to her art is a rich, evolving experience. Besides completing two large-scale pieces for a commercial space in Portland and showing her work in solo exhibitions, Freudenberger has been “thinking about a color migration that separates the color transitions into separate little paintings like a painter’s palette, but all of which work together as a whole composition,” she says. “What I strive for most in my work is using this ancient medium to create a modern, fresh design.”

As she plans her visually arresting felt paintings, Portland artist Jennifer Freudenberger pins colorful combinations of wool and silk to a board (top left). After adding, subtracting, arranging and rearranging the fibers, she hits just the right combination to realize her vision.

or designer Kimberlee Gorsline, her biggest project to date had a lot going for it. “The bones of the house had very clean lines, a lot of which we wanted to keep,” she says of her clients’ new place. Moreover, the Mercer Island abode boasted big windows with expansive views of Lake Washington and Bellevue’s city lights. But, built in the 1990s, the house had an opulent style at odds with her clients’ vibrant personalities. “The previous homeowners were more traditional, so they had added green marble inlay to the entry and powder room, the kitchen island and the fireplace,” Gorsline recalls. “And in the formal living room, they had a gilt-framed mirror and gilt light fixtures.” Without altering the floor plan—except for a few modifications to the master bathroom—the couple wanted to move in a more contemporary direction, so Gorsline worked with builder Ryan Anderson to brainstorm a strategy. “It was a true creative process. We’d say, ‘That’s cool,

PNW_LX25_Gorsline_326-337.indd 329

but what if we did this?’‹” explains Anderson. “The house was contemporary, but it was divided up, so it didn’t have a real open feel to it. There were a lot of walls separating the spaces, which is a bit of a throwback.” To brighten up the rooms, out went the green marble and in came a more sophisticated palette of materials, from polished quartz to nickel-plated steel, along with a more colorful, midcentury modern vibe. Meanwhile, Gorsline worked closely with Anderson’s team to tone down the home’s more traditional details. “We redid some of the trim, painted the doors and added new hardware,” says Anderson, who brought in colleague Tim Shuck as the project manager. Gorsline knew that the homeowners love color, plus early in the project she discovered just how adventurous they are. “We were looking for a yellow shower tile for a bathroom, and I found some yellows and golds that were more muted,” she says. “But the wife said, ‘No, I want something a little bit bolder.’ We ultimately decided on a

canary yellow, and it was then I realized that she really does like rich, saturated color. I wasn’t scared to use color after that.” The airy home features frequent dashes of daring hues, often in midcentury modern forms—for example, lipstick red chairs in the kitchen, and in the living room, a bright yellow Egg chair and a clean-lined sofa in electric blue velvet. The homeowners also love geometric patterns, which show up in a striking Cole & Son hexagonal wallcovering in the master bedroom and a hexagonal rug from West Elm in the study.

As for the home’s study—with its hunter green walls and dark wood desk and cabinetry—Gorsline transformed it into a bright, cheery place for the family to read. She suggested painting the entire desk and bookcase a vibrant high-gloss coral, and “the wife immediately fell in love with it,” Gorsline says. “I think the coral made the husband nervous at first, but he’s a great partner, and he was happy if she was happy.” For the study’s custom Roman shades, Gorsline chose a geometric fabric by Jonathan Adler in coral, chartreuse, white and mustard yellow. “The rug that

I selected for the room picked up on the green in the shade’s fabric, and the sofa is a mustard yellow velvet,” she says. “I also had a pillows made for the sofa out of the same Jonathan Adler fabric as the shade.” While deferring to his wife on most design decisions, the husband did have one personal request—a blue leather recliner. “I said, ‘Let’s make this man happy; he’s given a lot,’ ” says Gorsline, who loves how the stylish blue recliner looks in the family room. However, to avoid overwhelming the eye with color and pattern, Gorsline was mindful of creating visual balance in every room. “If I chose a bold color or pattern for the furnishings, we balanced it with lighter walls,” she says. “In the master bedroom, for example, we have geometric wallpaper and a rich velvet headboard, so we used crisp white bedding. It was my job to pull it all together in a way that represented the homeowners.” A similar impulse toward balance also appears in the living and dining rooms, which are relatively spare with kicks of color, including a violet dining table. “They have gorgeous views of Lake Washington, and we wanted to connect those two spaces and keep it open and airy to lift your eyes up to the windows,” Gorsline says. “It’s now light and cheerful.” Although the project began small—with just a few rooms being renovated—when the homeowners saw the spaces begin to come to life, they decided to remodel the entire house. The payoff is a home that went from subdued and traditional to modern and distinctive, with views of the water and eye candy at every turn.
