Casa Luis Barragán in Mexico City, shown right and below, inspired this issue’s Spotlight feature with its contemporary aesthetic and global influence.
NO PLACE LIKE HOME There is much to debate/discuss/enthuse about architecture and design. Yet, of this I am emphatic: Good design has to be firmly rooted to a place. There are buildings and aesthetics that we couldn’t imagine anywhere else but from where they sprout.
We lean into a host of cultural influences in this issue of Luxe, with design narratives as varied and interesting as the decorative details that are expressed at the hands of the makers. So, take a spin through our pages and ‘round-the-world reporting. Then, always, return home, for it’s the best way to measure how far you’ve come.

Take the graphic elegance and saturated hues of contemporary Mexican architect Luis Barragán’s residence-turned-museum in Mexico City. Would this poetic home be as wondrous in Miami, in Los Angeles? I recently visited, and think not. Barragán’s spatial strategy and brilliant play of light and shadow elicit a sense of reverence and respect appropriate to its root. His masterful residence and studio were the inspiration for our Spotlight story inside.

Variety SHOP THREE STANDOUT COMPANIES CURATE GLOBAL DESIGN FINDS. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER MCINTYRE
nternational furnishings and accessories have long been synonymous with elevated living—each piece’s highly crafted form and place of origin adding a dynamic layer. And whether it makes a grand statement as a room’s centerpiece or plays a supporting role as an accent, these global finds stand out as bold characters. Luxe explores three companies offering wares by both emerging and established artisans from around the world that were previously only available to the trade. Let the hunt begin!
Cool Factor: Before the existence of its three shops and online presence, Urban Zen was founded more than 20 years ago by Donna Karan as a philanthropic endeavor and center for change. During a trip to Bali, where she sourced and manufactured her original furnishing pieces (and continues to do so), she felt a true connection to the people and their craft. Traveling around the world since and working with artisans globally, Karan’s intention is to give back in a larger sense through health care initiatives, education and cultural preservation to the places she sources from. What you’ll find: Representing more than 45 artisans
in 20 different countries, Karan’s two shops in New York (Manhattan and Sag Harbor) and one in Los Angeles offer not only furnishings, accessories and clothing designed by the fashion guru herself and made by the artisans from countries across the world, but they also function as multidisciplinary spaces for seminars, meditation classes, events and other happenings that help to promote the philanthropic arm of Karan’s initiative. Up Next: A big proponent for helping the citizens of Haiti, Karan just collaborated with Kenneth Cole on an upcoming footwear project set to launch in July. In her words: “Urban Zen is about forming communities who want to help create change that is needed in the world.”

ADORNO Cool Factor: The brainchild of Martin Clausen and Kristian Snorre Andersen, Adorno is an online platform that empowers independent designers from 16 cities worldwide by featuring their unique or limited-edition pieces that have been carefully selected by local curators. Revamping the traditional collectible design market often dominated by physical galleries, Adorno works as a digital gallery with a simple and transparent price structure that benefits both the buyer and the designer by connecting them directly. What you’ll find: Inspired by the agriculture and fishing co-operatives in their native Denmark, where individuals prosper working as a unit, the Adorno platform enables autonomous collaborations between curators and designers from urban communities such as São Paulo, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Beirut and Berlin. Up Next: Believing design should be experienced in real life, the company is in its final stages of implementing 3D technology and high-quality imagery to create the “second” best way customers can inspect and try pieces in their home. In their words: “We hope to contribute to a creative society that celebrates diversity between cultures by providing designers with better opportunities to realize their own dreams and visions as creators.”
The Cocktail light by Hanna Anonen (left) and Not only hollow Cabinet by Dirk vander Kooij are both available through Adorno.
The Invisible Collection offers limited-edition pieces, like the Nomad Stools by Charles Zana, shown flanking the wall, and Chair Conversation by Vincent Darre (right).
Cool Factor: For the first time, exclusive pieces made by a number of the most esteemed names in the business, like Pierre Yovanovitch, Thierry Lemaire and Caroline Sarkozy, are available for purchase, and in most cases, exclusively on Isabelle Dubern-Mallevays and Anna Zaoui’s site, The Invisible Collection. Prior to the launch of the website in 2016, these pieces remained hidden and inaccessible, and one would have to commission these designers for a project to snag one of their sought-after pieces. What you’ll find: Initiated as an outlet to share the pair’s passion for design with a broader clientele, their highly-curated model offers access to furnishings and objets of the utmost quality all made to order by highly skilled creators and architects from around the world such as Bismut & Bismut, Charles Zana and Atelier Vime. Up Next: The details are still hush-hush, but the chic duo, who are based between Paris, London and New York, will bring The Invisible Collection to life in the Big Apple with a new exhibit this November for a second stateside visit since their premiere at Art Basel Miami in 2018. In their words: “It is very exciting to meet with a designer and discover their work, understand their approach, and then select the best pieces for the site. We always look at the work with a curatorial eye.”

Out of AFRICA SOUTHERN GUILD BRINGS DESIGN BEYOND THE BORDERS OF THE WORLD’S SECOND LARGEST CONTINENT.
Southern Guild recently showcased a Dokter and Misses collection, which included this limitededition Rat Trap cabinet made of hand-painted steel.
When Zizipho Poswa was growing up in the small South African town of Umtata, there were no art schools or creative role models. As a child, she made paper sculptures, doll clothes and drawings, but even after leaving her home to study art at university, becoming an internationally renowned artist seemed to be an unreachable dream. But then, after forming Imiso Ceramics with Andile Dyalvane, she met Trevyn and Julian McGowan of Southern Guild, and her horizons expanded beyond Africa. The McGowans started Southern Guild, Africa’s only gallery dedicated to limited-edition and collectible design and art, in 2008 to support design created in Trevyn’s home country. “We returned to South Africa after living in London for several years, and we noticed the extraordinary work being produced without representation,” says Trevyn. “We felt we could provide the opportunity for more people to see and understand African design.” Through Southern Guild’s Cape Town gallery and international exhibitions, they have introduced the work of modern African artists (such as Poswa and Dyalvane) to collectors around the globe, and the response has been enthusiastic. “I’m exhibiting at top international shows like Salon Art + Design in New York and Design Miami,” says Poswa, who now resides in Cape Town. “I’ve sold my pieces around the world.” According to Trevyn, collectors—including a large and growing client base in the United States—are reacting to both the caliber and the soul of the work. “Fine art and design in Africa is very forward-thinking, but largely made by hand,” she says. “The hallmark of design from this continent are pieces with a strong narrative. Many of them tell very personal stories about the maker and his or her journey and most pieces possess a sense of wit and humor, but they are usually functional as well.”

Poswa’s work, which includes colorful vessels, is a case in point. “I reference my culture, growing up as young Xhosa girl in the rural Eastern Cape, and express my love for Africa as a continent,” she says. “I draw inspiration from our traditional masks, fabrics, textures, beadwork and clothing.” Some of her works translate the color and patterns of African textiles onto vases, bowls and plates. The art of sculptor Stanislaw Trzebinski, also represented by Southern Guild, is a personal commentary on the often-eroding relationship between people and nature. It’s a tale he knows well, as he currently lives in Cape Town but spent his childhood in the East African bush and on the ocean with his father, surfing and fishing. His bronze works (which range from figurative decorative arts to tables) often feature coral and other watery motifs, sometimes married to the human form. “I’m looking at the symbiotic relationship we humans have to the natural world that has been all but lost today, with the exceptions of a few indigenous cultures,” he says. “I want to entice the viewer to take a closer look at the work itself, but also at how we relate to the planet we call home.” Asking buyers to take a closer look at African design is precisely the goal of the McGowans, as well. “To look is to experience the warmth and the personality of Africa. There’s a sense of non-conformism and joy,” Trevyn says. And by looking, she says you might be creating the next Poswa or Trzebinski, explaining: “Our focus lies in emboldening industry heroes and shaping careers. We want to put future design leaders on a global platform and help them be all that they can.”

RADAR / DEBUT
Tactile elements play a starring role in Frank Ponterio’s debut collection with Arteriors. The designer conjured ink-like etchings inspired by real-life tattoos on the Flint Containers (bottom) and used handwoven rope on the Johyo Chandelier and Vendee Mirror (left). “The materials are those that people want to interact with and touch,” he says. The Salotto Cabinet (below) is the crown jewel of the collection.

FRANK PONTERIO’S DEBUT COLLECTION WITH ARTERIORS STRIKES A SWEET SPOT BETWEEN ROUGH AND RARIFIED. WRITTEN BY HEATHER CARNEY PORTRAIT BY BERT VANDERVEEN
As a first-generation Italian American, interior designer Frank Ponterio spent a month every summer with his family exploring the beaches and small towns of Southern Italy, often fitting in a trip to the major metropolises of Venice or Rome. It was on these visits when he observed the attention to detail and sense of pride the Italians took in fabricating everyday features like a chimney or a handmade door handle. “Everything is beautiful and well thought-out. It’s a true Italian’s approach—whether in an artwork or how pavers on the city streets are laid. There is pride in the craft,” says the designer. Some decades later, the essence of those qualities are on display in Ponterio’s debut collection with Arteriors: a 28-piece compendium of mirrors, lamps and accessories that honors his Italian heritage with a modern perspective. His white-oak Salotto Cabinet, the crown jewel of the collection, was inspired by a pair of bronze doors at the Villa Necchi in Milan. The cabinet beckons
with front panels wrapped in vellum and punched with decorative cut-outs offering a glimpse of what’s inside. “We gave so much attention to that piece,” says Ponterio. Still, the collection isn’t all romance and history. The designer drew on his grittier, more urban upbringing in Chicago for many of the pieces, including the Joey Tray, inspired by a childhood acquaintance, who was “a little rough around the edges,” says Ponterio. “I was playing with thickcut hide and how to join the corners. The idea of brass studs came to me, and I thought about adding another accent—brass knuckles—to it. I sent it to the Arteriors team and said, ‘You’re going to think I’m crazy, but here’s what I want to do.’ It’s an urban nod to Chicago.” Blending approachability with luxury is a hallmark of Ponterio’s work. It’s also one of the qualities that attracted Arteriors to collaborate with the designer. “Many pieces are rooted in Frank’s love of entertaining, and in his philosophy that the home should be a welcoming and inviting place,” says Mark Moussa, founder and creative director of Arteriors. “At the same time, he is unwavering in his appreciation for materials of the finest quality.” For a designer who finds comfort in a moody cocktail lounge and a breezy, beachside locale, it’s apparent his collection reflects both sentiments. “There are two sides of me—the really urban guy and the guy who loves the coasts. It goes back to Italy,” says Ponterio. “I like mixing things that are rugged with those that are a bit more refined.”

ALEXA HAMPTON Interviewed by Carrier and Company
You’ve expressed, “It’s been a no-boundaries design process with Theodore Alexander.” What’s been your favorite exploration? I loved visiting Theodore Alexander’s foundry and seeing all of their metalwork capabilities. Sometimes simply picking hardware can be a drag, but this wasn’t. They can do anything! You mentioned taking ideas from art, antiques and travel. I am an eternal “Euro wannabe.” I so wish I were European, that I married one and made three little Euros! That said, rich design traditions are everywhere, and the Far East has always held a vast influence over beautiful interiors. A touch of chinoiserie, a chow leg, red lacquer, bamboo motifs: These are all firm members of the design canon. Any Alexa fave that you are going to use over and over in projects? I am excited to play with the metal console tables immediately. I am also really psyched to have a Napoleon III slipper chair at the ready. That’s the best part of having a collection: You can selfishly make what your heart most wants!
CARRIER AND COMPANY
Interviewed by Richard Mishaan First off, the Century Collection is stunning. How do you find a balance between creative, new designs, without straying too far from the roots of your brand? Thank you, Richard! We wanted our collection to be reflective of our assembled interiors, which express dualities—a mix of simple with ornate, sheen with hand and glamour with organic earthiness. For us, having standout pieces, along with simpler forms is very much on brand. How do you divide up your roles as husband and wife once you’re ‘at work’ and how do you successfully partner your visions? While we generally share an aligned point of view, we each have our own strengths, interests and inspirations. It is our differences that actually make us stronger—we challenge each other’s choices, but ultimately focus on the shared goals to temper ego with perspective. What do people overlook when designing that can be found in your collection? Versatility. We designed pieces that can move from room-to-room or coast-to-coast. Good design travels well!

PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER MCINTYRE
Interviewed by Alexa Hampton Tell me about the process for your new EJ Victor collection. Are you a cocktail napkin conceptualist? Where do the ideas start? Mine start in a bottle of tequila! For me it was daunting, but then I realized I was making it more complicated than it needed to be. I started in retail and commercial space design, so I’ve been designing custom fixtures and furnishings for my entire career. I went back to all my favorite pieces I had designed for brands like Balenciaga but changed the comfort and proportions for people to enjoy in their own homes. How do you describe your collection as a whole and what influenced you? It’s simple: It’s the idea of new luxury; luxury for a new generation. It’s inspired by the French 1920s with the use of interesting materials like suede and plaster. It’s meant to feel elevated but can also be used in a casual way. What pieces are you taking home with you? Oh, good question: a pair of Holland side chairs and a Foch Chandelier!
Interviewed by Ryan Korban Do your Colombian roots play a role in your new collection with Theodore Alexander? The fact that Colombia has produced so many creatives means that there is something inspiring us all. Colombia has rich artisans and sophisticated crafts that are both in such demand at the moment. As they say, you can take little Ricky out of Colombia, but you can’t take Colombia out of little Ricky! What were your go-to materials? I love to see texture and grain in the woods we select. I find that there are so many beautiful patterns that if accentuated can add to the richness of the design. I am lucky that Theodore Alexander’s manufacturing allowed me to work with fine wood finishes, metals and hand-painted panels—the sky was the limit. Who do you see living with your new collection? The Theodore Alexander client is already a sophisticated one. I designed this collection to have versatility, to coexist with furniture the client may already own and to translate well everywhere around the globe. Younger clients may not have some of the more classical pieces, so it’s fun to mix them in with contemporary furniture.

Schutz uses a proprietary assessment system to pair indoor gardeners with the perfect species from hundreds of lush houseplants; detailed care cards ensure at-home success. Her sunny shop, which retains its original Saltillo-tile floors and floor-to-ceiling window wall, also displays a color- and texture-rich array of handmade planters and home decor from local and international makers, as well as fairtrade artisan cooperatives—many in the Latin American style Schutz favors. In summer, the inventory spills out onto the front patio and expands to include flower-filled baskets and indoor-outdoor pots, including vibrant Talavera ceramics. greenladygardens.com

BRIDGET DORR CERAMICS
Bridget Dorr takes a slow and simple approach to making ceramic tableware—and hopes her customers will use her one-of-akind pieces with a similar intention. “My materials are very simple. Most days it’s just my hands and clay,” says the Boulder-based ceramicist, who creates custom work in addition to items for her online shop and boutique retailers. “The aim is that people will use my pieces to feel grounded during mealtime and to slow down from the fast-paced lives we tend to live.” When designing her feminine cups, mugs, dishes and spoons— lately, finished in a soft palette of dusty hues and matte glazes—Dorr takes cues from the stark minimalism and warm colors of the American Southwest. “The high deserts of New Mexico are so inspiring to me at the moment,” she says. “I admire the work of Georgia O’Keeffe; the way she captured the beauty of the West is simply magical.” Also, sure to inspire: Dorr’s forthcoming line of dinnerware, plus candle holders and serving platters—all in her signature organic-minimalist style. bridgetdorr.com

PARQ ON SPEER
In the race among Denver developers to provide apartment dwellers with the most— and the most unique—amenities, Greystar has taken the lead with the debut of Parq on Speer, a 16-story high-rise, designed by Ziegler Cooper Architects, in Denver’s Golden Triangle district. Here, quartz countertops, hardwood flooring and smarthome technologies come standard in the luxury residences—which include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, plus townhomes and penthouse suites, and amenities such as Peloton bikes, a bike-repair station, dog-grooming spa and stylish common gathering spaces sporting sleek modern furnishings. A private dog park offers indoor-outdoor play space, and on the sixth floor, an outdoor pool terrace and spa features an open-air fire pit, kitchen, cabanas and perhaps the best perk of all: panoramic mountain views. parqliving.com
“HUMAN | NATURE: FIGURES FROM THE CRAIG PONZIO SCULPTURE COLLECTION” This summer, the Denver Botanic Gardens emphasizes its commitment to facilitating the human-nature connection by quite literally placing human forms amid its York Street location’s diverse landscapes. “Human | Nature: Figures from the Craig Ponzio Sculpture Collection” showcases 17 figurative works from the early 20th century to the present, on loan from Denver philanthropist and art collector Craig Ponzio, that interpret the human form in styles from classical to abstract.

ITINERARY NADIA WATTS
“Being surrounded by the arts feeds my soul,” says Denver interior designer Nadia Watts, whose early exposure to fine art provided the foundation for her career in design. Watts—the great-greatgranddaughter of famed stained-glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany— grew up roaming the Smithsonian museums and the National Gallery of Art with her art-teacher mother.

STAY: The ART, a Hotel: I love this hotel and think it’s a wonderful addition to the city of Denver. The space is absolutely fabulous, from the Portico Gallery—home to works by Sam Francis, Sol Lewitt and Mary Ehrin, among many others—to the Welcome Gallery, which displays a breathtaking Deborah Butterfield sculpture and John Baldessari silkscreen prints. thearthotel.com
EAT: Star Kitchen: If you love Chinese food, go here immediately. They do amazing dim sum, including delicious Xiao Long Bao dumplings that my husband and I had in New York City but could never find in Denver. Another favorite: lobster topped with their special house sauce; I ordered that sauce over shrimp so often, they finally added it to the menu. The look is classic dim-sum-restaurant decor: big round tables, pictures of food on the walls, even a sequined dragon tapestry. starkitchenseafooddimsum.com
SHOP: The Lark: This home goods shop, located in the Country Club neighborhood, is known 102 / luxesource.com
for its classic style and always has something I need, from Simon Pearce glass bowls and vases to silver frames to a wonderful selection of lamps. I go to find something new, or because I know they’ll have just the blue-and-white ginger jar I need for a bookshelf. thelarkdenver.com William Havu Gallery: I love this gallery’s variety of artists— local and national, established and emerging. Several years ago, I discovered Denver artist Lui Ferreyra there and was immediately drawn to his interpretation of landscapes; his use of shading and color to create depth is very distinctive. williamhavugallery.com
PLAY: Denver Botanic Gardens: If I had the time, I would be at the Denver Botanic Gardens every day, because I find there is always something new to appreciate during each visit. During the summer, the Gardens has a special sculpture installation on view and stays open late. The placement of those pieces and the way in which they are incorporated among the plants is always thoughtful, yet unexpected at times. botanicgardens.org
Denver Art Museum: This museum has such diverse and dynamic spaces to house art, and it’s large enough that it is able to host special exhibitions and permanent collections. I’m very excited for the renovation of the Gio Ponti-designed North Building, as well as the summer exhibition “Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America.” The co-curator, Monica Obniski, is from the Milwaukee Art Museum, and we worked together years ago at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. denverartmuseum.org

MARK OF THE MAKER
PAUL FERRANTE paulferrante.com |
The production methods of custom lighting company Paul Ferrante are the opposite of cutting-edge, which, contrary to popular thinking, is a good thing. “The handmade, handcrafted and hand-finished products are what set Paul Ferrante apart. The company continues to use time-honored methods,” owner Tommy Raynor says. Spanning three generations and nearly 60 years, the family-owned and -operated business has decades of experience and expertise to draw from. Since business partner and founder Paul Ferrante’s passing 25 years ago, Raynor, along with over 60 employees, has taken the reins with a hands-on approach from manufacturing to product selection. Everything begins with the design, and the designs are born from a deep understanding and appreciation of what has come before. The knowledge of scale and proportion and the ability to get it right in the translation is Paul Ferrante’s signature. Additionally, the company distinguishes itself by its custom capabilities and being able to work with ideas and make them a reality.
“Paul Ferrante is known for products with the highest level of design, manufacture and finish.”
The Finishing Touch
Keeping It Interesting
Paul Ferrante recently introduced an exclusive finish innovation, years in the making. This beautiful Faux Bronze lacquer finish is the result of a labor-intensive, multilayered process that provides a convincingly realistic bronze finish on our iron pieces at a fraction of the cost of working in bronze.
Unlike most other high-end lighting and furniture manufacturers, Paul Ferrante introduces new products almost monthly, and has over 1,000 handmade examples of custom lighting and furniture in the product line.

A feeling of nostalgia overcame Matthew Grzywinski and Amador Pons upon first visiting this former textile warehouse and showroom they later transformed into the Whitworth Locke Hotel in England. Having worked on 19th-century masonry buildings in their native New York, the spaceâ€™s quality of light, Victorian bones, materials and textures were familiar to the architects. Welcoming spaces, like The Conservatory bar (shown), pay tribute to the local neighborhood vibes and original architecture.

Amidst all the efficiency that technology provides, now more than ever, there’s a deep need for humans to reconnect to nature.” Selamat, Poppy Armoire

Vipp worked with the homeowners of this South African contemporary farmhouse to create a sleek, minimalist modular kitchen space that allows the dramatic savanna landscape to be part of the living experience.

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH
HIGH-END DESIGNS PUSH THE ENVELOPE WHEN IT COMES TO MODULAR KITCHEN STYLES. Modular kitchens aren’t a new concept. They were first introduced in Europe as an efficient, low-cost alternative for homes being built in a post-World War I era but have reemerged quite differently today. While these early spaces were mostly standardized or fitted, today, modular kitchens, which are made up of specific modules or components that work together, have evolved to be stylish, practical and a welcome option in a world of too many choices. Several contemporary kitchen companies offer modular plans that have a set style or aesthetic 170 / luxesource.com
but can also be customized to create a design that is very much original. Piero Lissoni, the art director for Boffi, agrees the future of the kitchen is modular, and that these spaces should include “simple elements, where areas of work and life come together.” For the latest Combine series, Lissoni dreamed up a selection of functional monoblocs in varying sizes that can be used with worktops and extractable tables to fabricate a kitchen that is still personalized for its user. Vipp, a Danish family-run kitchen company that recently opened its first U.S. outpost, understands that design is a very personal endeavor. The firm's hope is that once a modular kitchen is installed, it can act as furniture that can be packed up and brought from home to home or passed on through generations, an idea they coined as the ‘heirloom kitchen.’ While Vipp offers four sleek module units including two islands, a wall component and a taller storage piece, it sticks to one color when it comes to finishes: black. “We found that endless colors and configurations feel
unnecessarily overwhelming,” says Sofie Egelund, Vipp’s concept director whose great-grandfather founded the brand in 1939. The Vipp ethos of less is more allows for the kitchen to work harmoniously with the rest of the home’s high design. Modular offerings are also a hit with interior designers. Paris-based Sarah Lavoine says, “The kitchen is very technical and relying on a company whose expertise is focused on this area allows me to be more creative in other rooms.” With so many sophisticated materials and configurations, Lavoine is surprised by how custom these modular kitchens can be but without the time-consuming installation and planning that usually follows. New York designer Alberto Villalobos understands there is no need to sacrifice style or aesthetics with the number of luxury options out there. “I utilize every tool available to me and modular kitchens have proven they are the practical and polished choice in many circumstances,” he says.

English LESSON TURKISH Delights Australian design duo Tim and Sylvia Hill know a thing or two about beach days, so they decided to create the ideal accessory for long, summer days at the sea with the Dreamtime towel. Inspired by the incredibly soft Turkish peshtemal, the towel’s high-quality cotton is sourced from Turkey's southern region of Buldan and will only get better with each wash. It’s lightweight, absorbent and transitions easily from the beach to home use. maydestore.com

For Thomas Furse-Roberts and Graeme Martinow, the directors of architecture and interior design firm Boundary Space, their design ethos for this London master bathroom was be bold or go home. Drawing inspiration from fashion, history and pop culture, Furse-Roberts says, “We were influenced by the ’70s because it has this glamorous connotation but was also a very futuristic time period, so we wanted to channel Blondie and Pan Am here.” The homeowner is in the film industry and the designers were charged with creating a room that not only represents their client’s personality but also the surrounding Notting Hill area, which is known for a strong sense of color and creativity.

WITH WANDERLUST ON THE MIND, CREATIVES ARE FLOCKING TO FAR-REACHING DESTINATIONS IN SEARCH OF ART, ARTISANS AND ARCHITECTURAL WONDERS. WRITTEN BY MARY ORE PRODUCED BY JENNIFER CONDON
Much like in the 19th century, when the Arts and Crafts movement espoused a return to the handmade in response to rampant industrialization, today’s visionary talents are turning away from technology and celebrating a return to the authentic. Bringing a modernist zeal to stone, straw, clay and textiles, creatives around the globe are reviving traditional crafts from an entirely new point of view. A desire for connection—to the materials, the process and to the region’s history—is at the heart of this new wave, which favors individuality and the sustained focus on genuine inspiration. Architects, too, are taking cues from their country’s past to build anew or overhaul the old, all the while creating work that’s startling fresh. There’s plenty of luxury, too, in the richness of the resources, the attention to details and the elegance and originality of the vision. Read on as we tour an array of design destinations where authenticity and modernism meet.

PORTUGAL Minimalist architectural silhouettes, exposed wood construction and high-end whiteon-white interiors give a bohemian-chic vibe to the Sublime Comporta. As the go-to boutique resort for this under-the-radar vacation destination, the Sublime Comporta recently reopened after a complete renovation that included redecorating the rooms in the traditions of the region, adding one of the largest “bio” pools in Europe and building nine poolside suites on stilts. With both a beachy and woodland Zen feel—stretches of unspoiled white sandy coastline lay to the west and forests of umbrella pines and cork trees to the east—its stunning locale is the perfect place to reconnect with nature. It’s also a glamorous and restful basecamp for excursions to nearby villages to discover the indigenous handicrafts for which the region is known. sublimecomporta.pt
Portugal holds a special place in fabric atelier Pierre Frey’s heart—so much so that the brand developed a panoramic wallcovering called Lisboa (above) that echoes the traditional Portuguese azulejos found on the palaces of Lisbon and Porto. Here, Frey shares his favorite architectural spaces. pierrefrey.com
2CL CLAY DAY
Famous for its azulejo-tiled buildings and artisanal ceramics, Portugal is brimming with talented potters who are drawing on the country’s ceramicist heritage while mixing in their own perspectives. As part of their home decor collection, David Pimentel and Arren Williams of Casa Cubista craft bold and bright ceramics (left) from their studio on the Algarve Coast. Farther north in Alcabideche, Anna Westerlund, of Swedish-Portuguese descent, brings both her legacies to the pottery (right) she creates at her sun-washed atelier. casacubista.com, annawesterlund.com
Oriente Station by Santiago Calatrava: It was in Lisbon that I first discovered this architect and I love everything he creates. He has works in London and France and was the creative mind behind lower Manhattan’s Oculus. His buildings are filled with energy, while being very dynamic and powerful. Promontorio Headquarters: The impressive interior staircase in this architecture firm’s office is made of concrete, which normally feels heavy, but the curves are graceful and light and entice you to find out where it leads. Prado: As a culinary institution, of course the food is great, but the architecture is simple and precise. The high, white walls and ceiling are filled with long tendrils of hanging plants making it a refreshing atmosphere to dine.

POSSESSIONS For exciting new design, look no further than Luteca or Ewe—both channel modern principles through artisanal techniques. Luteca offers original and classic designs, such as the Line chair (above), designed by Michael van Beuren, a Bauhaus-trained American who moved to the city in the 1930s. At the design collective Ewe, natural materials are transformed into sculptural collectibles. For the Copal coffee table (below), stonemasons eschewed machinery, opting instead to sculpt Tikal marble into six half spheres entirely by hand. luteca.com, ewe-studio.com
One of the stars of the Mexican art scene is Galeriá OMR, in the Roma district (site of the Oscar-winning film), which is celebrated for discovering and cultivating some of the country’s most innovative talents, including Jose Dávila, Pia Camil, Gabriel Rico and Yann Gerstberger, a French artist who moved to the city seven years ago. Gluing hand-dyed mop thread and industrial fabric scraps onto vinyl, Gerstberger draws on myriad influences—Nigerian folk art, Surrealism, graffiti—to create vibrant works that pay homage to Mexico’s rich textile heritage. galeriaomr.com
Lush tropical foliage and classical architectural elements mix to create an exotic sensibility in the courtyard of the Nima Local House Hotel, built in the late 19th century when the city was known as “little Paris.” One of a handful of house-hotels cropping up in the neighborhood, the Nima feels more like a grand home with a central living room warmed by a marble fireplace and four well-appointed guest rooms. Although each has its own look inspired by people once connected to the property, they all feature a contemporary sensibility and the latest amenities. nimalocalhousehotel.com

Brazil’s lively design scene lured back Brunno Jahara, a native who had decamped to Italy to study and work in architecture. Founding his own studio in Rio de Janeiro upon his return, he’s become known for his playful decor made with materials that range from textiles to recycled plastic. Not one to shy away from color, he went with natural hues for a line of woven straw lamps—part of a collaboration with Brazilian fashion designer Carioca Ana Voss— that mixes down-to-earth chic with tropical flair. brunnojahara.com
Overlooking the Copacabana Beach, the Emiliano Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, designed by the local firm Studio Arthur Casas along with Florida-based Oppenheim Architecture, stands out along the line of seafront hotels. Each beachfront room has white folding panels with cut-oval patterns (right) that can be opened for full exposure to the views or closed for privacy while allowing breeze and light to filter through; similar to the light, the façade is ever shifting. Inside, sleek furnishings make this hotel a stellar example of modern glamor in a city long associated with great design. emiliano.com.br
With her second collection for the high-end furniture brand Artefacto, architect Patricia Anastassiadis of Anastassiadis Arquitetos showcases her gifts for sumptuous minimalism in pieces like the Banco Vivika (bottom) and spaces such as the lobby bar of the new Palacio Tangara hotel in São Paulo (left). Here she shares insight into what makes her native Brazil so special. anastassiadis.com.br, artefacto.com How do you define the region’s design? Brazilian modernist design is celebrated worldwide, and it was created mostly by
immigrants and their descendants. What truly marks this region’s design is diversity—we live in a cultural melting pot where countless references coexist. What exemplifies that look? Amazing woodwork, marvelous ceramics (with pieces from Marajó Island, for instance) and unique materials (such as the golden grass found at Jalapão) that create beautiful accessories. Did growing up in Brazil influence your approach? My architecture practice is based in São Paulo, a city with a rich and interesting international scene, and my work is marked by this diversity. Also, I’ve always been interested in classical art and architecture, which gives us a deeper understanding of the world. When we understand traditional design, we’re able to create original work of our own. Tell us about the new collaboration with Artefacto. We are always looking to develop timeless pieces with a holistic appeal. And despite their strong visual appeal, they’re not necessarily related to trends. I believe a good design piece ruptures its timeline without losing its aesthetic or functional relevance.

Converted from a 19th-century convent and hospital, the lavish new Jaffa Hotel has opened in Tel Aviv. The high-end remodel, which has put this ancient port city on the design cognoscenti’s must-see list, preserved a historic chapel and wall of a 13th-century crusaders’ fortress while sinking a pool—where nuns once tended their orange groves—peacefully below street level. Deck furnishings by B&B Italia reflect how gracefully modern luxury can engage with history in one of the world’s oldest cities. thejaffahotel.com

The Design Museum Holon, enveloped in sinuous steel bands in shades of red, is a fitting site for the celebration of Israeli decorative arts. Its iconic façade, the vision of architect Ron Arad, is singular, as is the museum’s mission: As the country’s sole design museum, it is devoted to educating visitors through events and exhibitions about international design and contemporary culture. But it’s the evolving permanent collection, which encompasses Israeli design from the 1930s to the present, that offers new perspectives on the country’s aesthetic legacy and puts into context the energy invigorating a new crop of Israeli designers today. dmh.org.il
A short walk from the Jaffa hotel is Saga, a wellcurated decorative arts store. Here, a selection of home goods represents the work of some 100 Israeli design studios from established names to emerging talents, including masks by Studio Umasqu (above) and a colored concrete coffee table by Magenta Workshop (below). The store is also just a stone’s throw from the popular Jaffa Flea Market, a conglomeration of stalls where visitors can barter for nearly anything under the sun. However, for design lovers, Saga’s pouredconcrete showroom, inch-for-inch, offers a more disciplined shopping approach with a great thrill of discovery. sagatlv.com

SECOND ACT AN ASPEN COUPLE RENOVATES THEIR 1980S HOME TO SUIT THEIR NEWFOUND AFFINITY FOR CONTEMPORARY DESIGN. WRITTEN BY MAILE PINGEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID O. MARLOW

Designer Akasha Feeley centered this Aspen living room on a fireplace wall by Concreteworks. Furnishings include a Minotti sectional, tables and bench; a pair of Flexform armchairs; a Bao swivel chair by Eoos for Walter Knoll and a Paola Lenti rug from Studio Como. The artwork is by Ori Gersht.
ongtime Aspenites Robert and Marcie Musser had lived in their cozy, mountain-style home for more than 30 years when they decided they were ready for a change. Vacations in Santa Barbara had opened their eyes to a minimalist aesthetic and they began to feel that their old house no longer reflected that. After making the decision to build a new, contemporary dream home, the couple purchased a lot in another part of Aspen. Halfway through the project, however, change struck again. “The homeowners suddenly realized they already had their dream home, which had everything they needed: a great floor plan, privacy, panoramic views and a Herbert Bayer-designed guesthouse with comfortable on-site accommodations,” recalls designer Akasha Feeley. “Their house and guesthouse just needed to be remodeled.” After much discussion and a walk-though with Feeley, the couple decided to begin renovations on the original home and sell the new build. “Our challenge was to turn their comfy cottage into an uncluttered, modern home that’s open to the outdoors,” explains Feeley, who worked with her husband, general contractor John Black, on the project. “It was a remodel, but it was also pretty close to a gut job,” says Black, who oversaw the installation of expansive new windows, cabinetry and lighting, and the reimagination of the teak beams with a soft gray stain. The transformations were major: “The kitchen went from English country to modern Italian,” Black notes. But one of the most dramatic moments came when the massive river rock fireplace was replaced with a slim concrete wall inset with a sleek, raised firebox now visible from the adjoining rooms.

Left: In the dining room, a dramatic mountain view is visible through large Loewen windows from Architectural Windows & Doors, and is a lush backdrop for a Desalto table.

The hallway doubles as a gallery featuring (from left) an antique Peruvian textile, a photograph of an olive tree by Ori Gersht and a cloud photo by Mitch Epstein. The Living Divani bench is from Solesdi in Miami. Feeley chose flooring from Dutch company Hakwood for the renovation.

It’s a stylistic 180 degrees, but it feels natural. “The biggest challenge of a remodel is making it not look like a remodel,” says Black. Because the Mussers had lived in the home for decades, they knew what worked and what didn’t. “Marcie knew what she wanted—she was even ahead of me at times,” says Feeley. Chief concerns included screening the kitchen from the dining area—a problem resolved with sliding Rimadesio doors—and accommodating the couple’s art collection, which includes works by Robert Kelly and Olivo Barbieri, pre-Columbian and Native American artifacts, and several pieces by furniture designer Sam Maloof. Beyond that, the goal was simply to create fresh and easily livable spaces. “My inspiration really came from Marcie’s closet,” says Feeley, explaining their mutual love of Italian designer Brunello Cucinelli. “Right away, I could tap into Marcie’s style: a tailored look with textured taupe,
gray and navy fabrics. Everything is detailed and orderly. It really helped me understand her aesthetic and taste level.” Following the Cucinelli thread, Feeley and her clients focused on selecting the furnishings from contemporary Italian firms like Minotti and Poltrona Frau. “Those pieces are absolutely gorgeous, but I do like to be a little eclectic,” the designer says, noting a smattering of midcentury pieces like the George Nelson Platform bench in the guest room. “Marcie loves design and was very involved throughout the process,” adds Feeley, who traveled to Denver, San Francisco, Toronto and Miami in her search of the perfect pieces. Favorite finds—Henge lighting, Ivano Redaelli beds, a Desalto dining table and Walter Knoll swivel chairs—have a similar sculptural flair. On the upper level, Feeley crafted an inner sanctum for the homeowners. Joining the master bedroom are his-and-her bathrooms, dressing rooms and offices.
The modern nature continues in the den, which is outfitted with a B&B Italia sectional and coffee table and a Poliform lounge chair, all from Studio Como. Art includes a collection of Pueblo pots on the shelves and a photograph by Richard Misrach. The floor lamp is by Michael Dawkins Home and the rug is from Mansour Modern in Los Angeles.
Rustic texture meets clean lines in the powder room, where marble tile by Italian brand Salvatori contrasts with a sleek Davide Groppi suspension light, a wall-mounted Badeloft sink and Gessi faucet.
Special attention was given to transforming Marcie’s once-pink and dated bathroom and to her closet. “I wanted it to feel like a department store,” Feeley explains, referencing architect Peter Marino’s Chanel and Louis Vuitton boutiques. “It needed to be elegant and not formulaic, so I did low, light-wood cabinets on one wall and illuminated her shoes.” The designer notes that the remodel gave the interiors a better flow. In fact, it flows right outside, just as the Mussers had wished. “We applied clean architectural concepts to the garden,” says landscape architect Shannon Murphy, who was brought back to rework her original landscape design. “We saved most of the existing trees and shrubs so that it
doesn’t feel brand new. There’s an age and a depth to it.” To keep the color palette in sync with the interior’s blues and purples, Murphy—who worked with landscape designer Erin Greenwood on the project—opted for salvias, lavenders and blue avena grass. She also planted a new aspen grove between the main and guest houses. “It’s nice for guests to wander through it,” she adds. The old house really has become all the Mussers envisioned—a very personal interpretation of their newfound aesthetic. The home still holds all their memories while providing new opportunities to make many more. “I loved this project,” reflects Feeley. “I wish the renovation could have gone on forever.”
The guest bedroom features bold colors against a neutral backdrop. An Ivano Redaelli bed holds center stage with a Bensen swivel chair and Poliform poufs providing smaller exclamation points. The artworks over the vintage 1950s George Nelson bench are landscapes by Richard Misrach. The iconic Weimaraner photograph is by William Wegman.

The entry of this new Denver home provides a fresh, airy welcome to friends and family as well as setting an East Coast-meets-Colorado tone. The white console, Riviera bench and jute rug are all by Serena & Lily. The iron-branch Arteriors chandelier offers a nod to the home’s natural surroundings.
fter welcoming their second son into the world, a Denver couple began to rethink their streamlined modern home. “We needed more space and something that functioned well for a family,” the wife says. “We wanted a house that was cozier, with lots of pillows, throws and comfy armchairs.” They found what they were looking for in a Cherry Hills Village property that also fit their outdoorsy personalities. Located just south of Denver, the community features rolling hills, gravel roads and even some small horse farms and bridle paths. Once they saw it, they decided to stake their claim and build their dream house. “I wanted a Cape Cod home with a lot of windows and high ceilings,” says the wife, whose husband’s family owns a house on Nantucket. “We love the way we feel when we’re there, so we wanted our home here to have the look and sensibility of the beach house, even though we’re in Colorado.” The wife, who has a fashion industry background, developed some initial design ideas. She then worked with residential designer Matthew Guderjahn, who drew up plans and brought these ideas to life. The homeowners also enlisted designers Heather Brock—a close friend from college—and Jennifer Wundrow, both based in California’s Bay Area, to refine the home’s design and interiors. The initial plans called for adding a wall that separated the entry from the rest of the house, but the design team suggested removing it—making for a very open plan. “We wanted to open things up, so the entry, dining room, kitchen and living space were connected,” Wundrow says. Joining the interior spaces to one another—and to the outside— made functional sense and created the seamless indooroutdoor vibe that the couple desired. “We wanted it to all feel related and inviting,” the wife says. “We envisioned a space where you’d get a drink in the kitchen, and then maybe sit at the dining table and chat with someone, before moving into the cozy living room, either by the fire in the winter or next to the open French doors in the summer.”

A crisp blue-and-white color palette helps make the living room an inviting conversation spot. A Lee Industries linen-upholstered sofa and modern wingback armchairs provide comfortable seating. Minzuu throw pillows add splashes of color and pattern. The coffee table is by Redford House and the Jovan bench is by Made Goods.
The kitchen, dining and living areas were oriented to face the mountains. “To take full advantage of those views, there aren’t any window treatments,” Brock says. Views aren’t the only thing coming in through the windows. “We made a big effort to bring in as much light as possible,” adds general contractor Carl Fuhri. For Fuhri, building the home had a special, personal meaning. “We typically design and construct homes in a foursquare or modern style, so it was fun to create something with a Cape Cod aesthetic. I’m from the East Coast, so it was like going home,” he says. To make the home personal for the family, it was built with outdoor living in mind. “We expanded their back porch to add a grilling area as well as a fire pit,” says landscape designer Robert Hahn. “They can be entertaining out there while watching the kids and dogs run around.” The design team kept the home’s interior palette fresh. “We wanted it light and bright, as a beach house would be with the sun out,” Brock says. “We also used blue as the new neutral—or the old neutral, because it’s so classic—and we added some texture to bring it all together.” Natural textures, which also lend a subtle mountain feel, came in the form of a raffia console, carved-wood light fixtures and hide-covered benches. Patterns were also added to the mix. “I loved all of the prints that the designers helped me bring in,” the wife says. “We were able to keep a lot of the furniture neutral and then bring in some fun color through accessories and art.” For furnishings, the couple started from nearly zero. “They brought almost nothing from their old home because it was a midcentury modern Eichler-style,” Wundrow explains. “It wasn’t a fit for the new home.” Instead, they went for furniture that’s stylish yet designed for family living, like the upholstered chairs at either end of the dining table. “Those big end chairs are super comfortable,” the wife says. “In the morning I go in and sit with my computer and coffee where I can see the kids running around and my husband in the kitchen.” Throughout the home, touches like vintage rugs lend character. “They add a lot of depth and dimension that you can’t get from a new floor covering,” Wundrow says. “It gives you the feeling that you didn’t design the room all at one time.” Meanwhile, the family’s art collection includes some pieces that are particularly special. “My mother-in-law is an artist in Nantucket, and we brought a lot of her artwork here,” the wife says. “And my sister-in-law is a photographer, so many of her photographs are in our house, and I love that.”

Behind him, the home’s exterior is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Storm with fresh white trim, in keeping with its Nantucket sensibility. The exterior side doors are by Milgard, purchased through Alpine Lumber Parker. A pair of rattan chairs came with the homeowners from their previous house. Opposite: After the family moved in, landscape designer Robert Hahn expanded the patios to give the family additional outdoor living space. A wood-and-metal table and matching chairs provide an open-air dining experience, while cushy sofa and pillows on the deck make for comfortable seating.
“WE WANTED IT LIGHT AND BRIGHT, AS A BEACH HOUSE WOULD BE WITH THE SUN OUT.” –HEATHER BROCK

The wife is often in the field all day with her horse and dogs, so the design team wanted to create a master bath that’s a serene retreat for her in the evening. A freestanding Reve tub by Kohler is surrounded by walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s Snowfall White. The polished marble floor tiles are from PetraSlate Tile & Stone.
Beyond style, the home was designed for functionality. “We bike and hike and go camping, and I have a horse and dogs, so we have a lot of gear,” the wife says. “In our previous home, we didn’t have a lot of storage, so that was one thing that we were very thoughtful about.” The homeowners were also intent on using every space in their house, rather than devoting square footage to rooms that would be used less frequently. The basement, for example, is brighter than you’d expect, with a big open stairway that allows natural light to flood in. “My boys will go downstairs and play,” the wife says, “so it feels like a space that’s used for living as well as storage.”
Outside, Hahn created landscaping evoking a casual farmhouse aesthetic, to match the area’s rural feel. “We kept the more manicured areas close to the house and, out toward the property line, it’s more native grass,” Hahn says. “The emphasis was on year-round interest and big splashes of color through flowering shrubs. Having areas for their kids to play was also important.” There’s a big playset area for the kids, for example, and plenty of grassy areas. “We love having kids and dogs running in and out and inviting friends over to grill and sit by the fire pit,” the wife says. “Everyone’s kind of everywhere. It’s cozy and casual and light and bright—in other words, very us.”
The master bedroom was designed as a tranquil sanctuary, and soft blues and grays were incorporated to evoke hues of the ocean. The bed is by Serena & Lily, and the ceramic bedside lamps with linen shades are by Bungalow 5. The stools at the foot of the bed are by Made Goods.

FREE Rein A COLORADO ARTIST TACKLES AN UNCONVENTIONAL MEDIUM TO CAPTURE THE NOSTALGIA OF THE AMERICAN WEST. WRITTEN BY KATE ABNEY / PHOTOGRAPHY BY C2 PHOTOGRAPHY
luxesource.com / 221
aeve Eichelberger did not foresee working with Plexiglas. But the acrylic material has come to define the artist’s work since 2011. Eichelberger earned her Master of Fine Arts in Miami and gained global perspective during extended stints in Ireland, Italy and England. But when the “big skies and untouched land” of Colorado called her home, she chose to embrace it, conjuring early memories of downtown Denver—where she examined buildings with her architect father— and the family’s Larkspur ranch that teemed with chickens, peacocks, goats and horses. The artist initially explored Plexiglas as a vehicle for displaying her history, using sheets of the material as mounts for photos depicting everything from urban skylines to American West iconography. Four years ago, she started sculpting with it. Today, her Plexiglas sculptures take inspiration from vintage horse tack, such as saddles and bridles. Her photos add texture and dimension to the clear acrylic and serve as sentimental touchstones. Eichelberger personally takes each picture— be it a bucking rodeo horse or the plumage of a ranch peacock. A Denver printshop ink-jets the images onto 4-by-8-foot sheets of Plexiglas and then laser-cuts them into shapes, not unlike dress patterns. When boxes of the latest run land on her doorstep, “It’s like Christmas,” says Eichelberger, who left bustling Denver two years ago for the slower place of Paonia. In her sunny home studio, she is surrounded by giant aloe and happy philodendron that bask in the light of its south- and east-facing windows. “Without sun, I can’t function,” the artist says. Light is crucial to the next step of Eichelberger’s craft, which often includes using a Dremel to etch designs onto the Plexiglas. Working from memory and imagination, the artist channels the tooled-leather motifs of traditional saddlery— including flowers, leaves, swirling filigrees—but edits them to make them her own. The real thrill, though, is when she free-hand sculpts her cutouts using a heat gun. “You have to work fast—the acrylic could crack or turn to mush otherwise; it’s not as pliable as paper, fabric or leather,” says Eichelberger, who assembles the parts with Chicago screws or resin fasteners. The artist has most of the steps perfected—so much so that she recently undertook a brave new ambition: combining multiple details in a single sculpture. “I started etching into the images as well, like adding a basket weave pattern on top of an existing image,” she notes. “It adds another dimension to the texture, and it’s a play of color and negative space that’s a sort of subtraction process.” As the saying goes, “without risk, no reward.”

A DESIGN TEAM BREAKS CREATIVE GROUND, REIMAGINING THE FARMHOUSE FOR THIS ECLECTIC HOME IN STEAMBOAT SPRINGS. WRITTEN BY MONIQUE MCINTOSH / PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID PATTERSON

rom rugged mountain lodges to sleek industrial structures, general contractor Jeremy MacGray and his wife, Krysta, have seen their share of Colorado abodes. When the opportunity came to create a family home of their own, perched on an idyllic knoll overlooking downtown Steamboat Springs, they had a clear wish list in mind. They dreamed about a house with open spaces built for all seasons that also embraced and blended their individual styles: both her penchant for traditional farmhouse living with shiplap and handmade tile, and his love of modernism with concrete and metal. To bring cohesion to their vision, the couple turned to frequent collaborators architect Brandt Vanderbosch and his team at Vertical Arts. With four young children and three dogs, family-friendly features were top priority. “They really wanted us to think about flow, with big communal living areas where their kids can roam,” says Vanderbosch.
Built on the historic site of the town’s former hospital, the stacked structure contours along the steep terrain. “The three-story design has the bedrooms on the upper level to keep the family dynamic,” notes Vanderbosch. And the main floor became a communal great room that leads seamlessly onto an expansive deck—designed by the architect as a choice spot where the couple can sit and watch their kids walk to school. “With sweeping views of Emerald Mountain, the home also needed to maintain the family’s connection with the outdoors,” says the architect. “We oriented spaces where they best work for the views.” Landscape architect Mitch Rewold continued this family fluidity in the landscape design. The hilly lot prevented a traditional backyard, so he refocused the communal garden space out front with a cozy seating area and massive slab boulders the children can climb on. He surrounded the winding paths of Colorado Buff stone walkways with native-flowering perennials that survive the snow into
Opposite: Homeowners Jeremy and Krysta MacGray turned to the team at Vertical Arts to create a modern farmhouse with an industrial edge. This design balance begins in the entry, where the exterior sandstone continues inside and contrasts with concrete flooring. Other rustic elements include a Geoffrey chandelier by Arteriors, a Marco rug by Dash & Albert and custom barn doors leading into the home office. Below: Architect Brandt Vanderbosch imagined the main floor â€œas a big open communal area with a series of islandsâ€? that opens onto the deck through bifold Zola European Windows doors. The main seating area is defined by a Thayer Coggin Back It Up sectional, an Anthropologie coffee table and a Charlize chair by Nuevo Living.

Opposite: Instead of a formal dining room, the family wanted a casual eating space they could use every day. The design team turned to Element Woodworking to create a custom table and benches. The heirloom-worthy pieces feature reclaimed wood from old barns found around Steamboat Springs. Floating above is a bubble glass Rousseau pendant by Hudson Valley Lighting. Below: The kitchen provides a study in contrast, balancing heavy elements such as the custom steel range hood and ceiling beams with more delicate details, like the cabinets painted in Sherwin-Williams Aleutian, the bistro-style Riviera bar stools by Serena & Lily and the brass Visual Comfort Goodman pendants.

Vanderbosch created a guesthouse for visitors that’s joined to the main house with a shared terrace. The architect calls it “a series of little villages connected by a deck, allowing natural light to come in all the way around both structures.” The Montpelier outdoor furniture is by Smith & Hawken, and the fire pit is by Starfire Direct.
spring, and evergreen plants that retain fullness during winter. “Steamboat is so naturally beautiful,” says Rewold. “We knew we needed to create different spots around the property where the family would want to congregate and enjoy the outdoors.” The home is also an experimental playground of materials for the couple, starting with the double-sided fireplace right at the entrance. “It’s the inspiration for the whole house,” notes Krysta. “We made the whole main level operate around that fireplace,” explains MacGray. This feature incorporates the French farmhouse-inspired sandstone from the exterior, but the rusticity is tempered with industrial notes like the streamlined timber mantel and hot-rolled steel above it. This contrast of materials echoes throughout the home. On the deck, unstained timber plays against the floor-to-ceiling bifold doors framed in stark black metal. Inside, board-andbatten paneling pairs with concrete flooring, where MacGray had particular fun creating different finishes: a velvet-smooth diamond grind for the main floor and a hand-troweled look for the upper level. “It’s a very commercial, retail look, but it also has a contemporary feel,” says MacGray. More fanciful touches came from Krysta, like the hand-painted terra-cotta Tabarka Studio tile in the master bath’s generous shower. “It’s the first thing I picked out for this house, and I wanted a shower that would showcase it,” says Krysta. The couple collaborated with designer and architect Sarah Tiedeken O’Brien on the finishing interior details. “We really wanted to add more textural elements against the white paneling and concrete floors for that modern farmhouse style, but with a little more edge,” explains Tiedeken.
In the palette of predominantly natural hues, the couple welcomed bursts of color, like the richly patterned runner for the stairwell off the entry, which was made from stitching 12 different rugs together. The couple “never wanted the house to feel stuffy,” says designer and architect Sarah Tiedeken O’Brien. “We didn’t want to pinhole the home into one specific style.”
The home includes many custom details that offer much-welcomed whimsy, like the sliding barn doors in the hallway fabricated by Twenty1five. For the design, “we incorporated some unique patchwork-style wood, and added an oversize wheel as an ode to the owner, who loves biking,” notes O’Brien. “These art piece elements add a bit of fun throughout the home.”

In the master bedroom, a wall of windows “creates a lofty feeling,” says Vanderbosch. Low-profile furniture helps preserve the space’s panoramic views, like the Ditre Italia Dixon bed and the Four Hands side table from Stēl House & Home. In order to preserve the view, custom Lutron shades emerge from the bottom of the window when privacy is needed.
234 / luxesource.com
In that spirit, the team worked with project manager Chris Fletcher and local fabricators Twenty1five to create rich wooden features like the jigsaw barn doors installed throughout the home, fusing raw wood grain and black steel hardware. Other custom creations from the company help define the airy kitchen. Vanderbosch eschewed traditional kitchen cabinetry, opting for open shelving allowing sight lines through the interior and out to the view. A maple-and-metal bar top attaches to the island and is much-beloved by everyone. “It really gives us a sense of family when we’re all cuddled around it,” notes MacGray. Bringing balance to the more industrial custom elements, the furnishings embrace a palette of “soft colors that
aren’t overwhelming against the stark whiteness of the architecture,” says O’Brien. Key pieces include the gray Thayer Coggin sectional that grounds the great room, with a low back that, as the designer says, “is easy for the kids to jump over.” A medley of tone-on-tone textiles adds relaxed elegance to the low-profile Ditre Italia Dixon bed in the master bedroom. The result is a home that breathes with the shifting elements, creating warm, tactile spaces to enjoy snowcapped vistas. When the summer months arrive, there’s cause for celebration. “The home is really the best when you can just throw open all the doors,” says Krysta. “Even when you’re sitting indoors it feels like you’re outside—and that’s my favorite way to do life.”
A mix of textures and materials is embraced in the master bathroom, where a Juno bathtub by Wyndham Collection is outfitted with a Sonoma Forge faucet. Quartz countertops top rugged cabinets made from reclaimed snow fence planks. The industrial sconces from Circa Lighting over the sinks are balanced by a basket cloche hanging pendant from Stēl House + Home.
