WHAT’S NEW

_LX_COM12_EditorLetter.indd 84

The season of renewal (current projects! fresh ideas!) is here—and yet spring can also be a time when buds take a tad longer to bloom and concepts need coaxing to get started. We’ve all been there with the proverbial blank page staring us down. So, consider this New + Now issue to be an inspiration injection, where we update your point of view with discoveries that allow you to step outside the day-to-day and dive into something altogether new. Costas Voyatzis, the man behind yatzer.com, the global kaleidoscope of what’s happening in art, fashion and design, lets us in on the top brands to watch in 2017. We also

present the latest in side tables, report on the trend of vivid color making its way into homes across the country (Farrow & Ball Chappell Green, I have my eyes on you!), and head outdoors for a showcase of sumptuous new textiles. This spring, we also invite you online to the enhanced luxesource.com. Browse around and take a look. We’ll be tweaking things in the weeks to come, but hope you enjoy our ever-evolving digital home for design inspiration and discovery.

CONTRIBUTORS

BEHIND THE SCENES PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ

LIZ ARNOLD Writer / New York Favorite Luxe interview: I really enjoyed speaking with designer Michael Siller and luxury rug specialist Larry Hokanson about their own Houston home. They are both history buffs and enthusiasts of Russian classicism, and they are incredibly knowledgeable on the intersection of history and design. They filled their interiors with reproductions of exquisite pieces selected during trips to The State Hermitage Museum in Russia, and I still have plans to show up on their doorstep one day to see it for myself! Who is the most fascinating person you’ve ever met? Eva Zeisel. She was a playful Hungarian-born industrial designer who was imprisoned by Joseph Stalin’s regime before moving her ceramics into mass production, and she had the first one-woman show at the MoMA. Sadly, she passed away in 2011 at the age of 105. Prized possessions: A coin pendant of Queen Elizabeth II—a gift from my late father—that I wear on a long necklace; a vintage French upholstered armchair in mustard yellow that’s so low you feel like you’re in a sports car; and my computer, which stores all of my writing and ideas.

EMILY MINTON REDFIELD Photographer / Denver

What do you find inspiring about design today? Having nostalgia for 1970s wallpaper, I love seeing the new designs and appreciation for this art form. I can’t wait to put an Abigail Borg paper in my powder room and make it a fresh, retro jewel box. Unforgettable Luxe shoot: One of my most memorable projects was a home designed by my visionary father, Joseph Minton. Not only were the house and location beautiful, but I was also able to do the shoot in my pajamas alongside my dad. On your coffee table: I am inspired by design books and have them all over my house, but I am mostly fueled by fiction. My recent favorites are City of Thieves by David Benioff and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Most fascinating person you’ve ever met: The Maharaja of Jaipur at a small dinner party in Delhi, India, when I was 24.

LX_COM12_Contributors.indd 98

MARK ROSKAMS Photographer / New York Whose work are you most influenced by? Photographer Raymond Meier, who does such brilliant and innovative work in the commercial advertising and editorial fields; photographer François Halard, who developed a unique style in the world of interior photography; and designer and artist Doug Meyer, a longtime friend and collaborator who gives me so much inspiration in regards to design. What type of design inspires you? I really enjoy Santiago Calatrava’s bridges, buildings and public spaces, as well as Brutalist architecture of the old regimes, which are such amazing structures in their own right. Favorite assignments: In 2010, I worked on a book with Rizzoli in Puglia, Italy, and then on a second book last year. They were both great projects, and the memories of meeting people and seeing firsthand the beauty of many things—humanity, history, architecture, life, food and passion—will last forever. I am continuing this endeavor with a new book I am planning this year on the stables and barns of the British Isles.

LAURA FISHER KAISER Writer / Washington, D.C. My biggest creative influence comes from… Viewing art. I try to go to a museum once a week. Dream assignment: I would love to have a time-machine talk show called What Were You Thinking, where I interview famous, and infamous, people from history. Most-loved book: The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World by Andrea Wulf. She rummages through the scientist’s notebooks and inside his mind to show how his ideas helped create modern environmentalism. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Think big, but master the details. Also, find a good therapist. If not a writer, I would be… A Smithsonian museum curator.

MAKING DESIGNERS AND CRAFTSMEN FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE BUILDING NEW FUTURES TOGETHER AND REDEFINING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE MADE IN AMERICA. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

The portrait of an artist as a solitary genius, toiling away and perfecting his craft in isolation, may be a romantic notion—a testament to a love of artistry so intense and allconsuming that nothing else matters—but it’s also a relic of the past. Today’s craftsmen and creatives don’t want to suffer for their art; instead, they’re using their creations to build bridges not only to the people who will ultimately invite the pieces into their homes but also to those who share their passions: fellow makers. As manufacturing in America continues to fight to thrive in the competitive global economy, the you-can’tsit-with-us mentality is giving way to communal tables, which in many cases have been built in collaboration by the people who sit around them. In places all over the country, this longing for connection is redefining what it means to be made in America, resulting in growing communities of independent designers who work side by side, collaborate regularly and sell their wares together. Here, we share some of our favorites.

NEW YORK WHAT IT IS: Located on Canal Street in New York City, Colony is equal parts showroom and gallery with carefully curated goods from independent designers—many with ties to the area and working studios in nearby Brooklyn. Founded and curated by entrepreneur Jean Lin, the design co-op also has a strategic arm, named Colony Consult, developed to help designers better position their work in the retail market. WHAT IT DOES: Colony provides a community for the furniture, lighting, textile and object designers who call it home. In addition to offering a brick-and-mortar location for members to showcase their goods, Lin also thinks outside the box with a series of exhibits and pop-ups with neighboring non-endemic businesses to drive new traffic to the space. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Industry darlings like Erickson Aesthetics, whose in-progress copper Manifold chair is featured on our Radar opener, count themselves part of Colony, as do craftsman and designer Aaron Poritz (pictured far right), whose gorgeous Abner toolbox (shown on the previous page) offers both form and function; lighting upstart Allied Maker and its Voyager 333 chandelier (shown right, top); and the woodworking wunderkinds behind Vonnegut/Kraft, who are responsible for the handsome Black Crescent lounge (right, bottom).

▲ JOIN DESIGN

SEATTLE WHAT IT IS: Founded in 2008 by the prolific minds behind some of the Pacific Northwest’s most successful creative practices—Grain, Iacoli & McAllister and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, for example—Join Design has become much more than a venture to showcase local talents and now includes more than 50 members

LX_COM12_Radar_Made_In_America.indd 104

from independent design studios all over the country. WHAT IT DOES: In addition to hosting events and exhibits featuring products (made in the USA, of course) from its impressive roster of makers, Join also solicits new product design, curates its own collections for popular trade shows, offers mentorship programs and organizes retail pop-ups. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Multimedia artist Aleksandra Pollner’s

unique and modern approach to traditional furniture constructs, as shown in the table above, left, is breathtaking; designer Melanie Abrantes creates chic accessories (above, right) using beautifully grained wood and cork, the nonconventional material of our dreams; and The Granite’s expert handling of form and function makes even the most mundane of objects extraordinary.

ΠL.A. BOX COLLECTIVE

LOS ANGELES WHAT IT IS: A community built by Los Angelesbased furniture makers, L.A. Box Collective started as a way to bond over the group’s shared commitment to working with sustainable materials while engaged in sustainable practices— something they continue to honor through a particularly thoughtful mission statement. WHAT IT DOES: Not only does the collective encourage and provide support to makers who seek to tackle their craft with a mindful approach to the environment, it also puts on joint exhibitions of work completed under a common theme: For example, last year, its 10 members debuted a show at the Craft & Folk Art Museum, titled “Windfall,” which featured new works crafted exclusively from wood sourced from local trees felled during California’s historic San Gabriel Valley windstorm of 2011. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Casey Dzierlenga splits her time between Los Angeles and her home base in New York’s Hudson River Valley, where she mostly mills wood from her own land before transforming it into clean-lined masterpieces with an organic feel, as demonstrated by the wonderfully simplistic yet impactful aesthetic of the Alma credenza and Lorca coffee table

(shown above and right); while a foundation and love for midcentury designers fuels designer and craftsman David Johnson’s original works as well as his careful Danish modern restoration projects that somehow capture and preserve their makers’ intentions while offering up a little something extra.

PARIS WHAT IT IS: A Paris-based showroom dedicated to introducing international design lovers to the best of American design, Triode is expanding the conversation surrounding what it means for a product to be made in America to a whole new audience. Founder Jacques Barret presents this generation of American classics along with reissues from greats like Finn Juhl and Richard Neutra. WHAT IT DOES: Barret is making the domestic design movement cool again by bringing it to the epicenter of global chic, Paris— home to one of the furniture industry’s most well-respected yearly celebrations, Maison & Objet—and allowing the pieces to stand on their own against friendly competition from all over the globe. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Based in New York, Anna Karlin’s eye-catching contemporary furniture forms (shown at left) feel vaguely European but are all produced with the help of local artisans; and Apparatus, Rosie Li and Bec Brittain’s illuminated offerings break the mold on traditional lighting from studios in Brooklyn.

HUBBARDTON FORGE’S DESIGN DIRECTOR DAVID KITTS SHARES HOW ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S OLDEST AND LARGEST COMMERCIAL FORGES IN OPERATION IS EXPANDING—WITH ITS NEWEST LINE, VERMONT MODERN—AND REDEFINING AMERICAN CRAFTSMANSHIP. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY S. CHEVALIER

Speaking of process, tell us how you brought your visions to life. Our design process starts off very hands-on: We make a sketch and often work with steel, paper or foam models, and then we figure out how to illuminate the initial concept. As an unconventional design group, we were able to “loosen up” and really have fun with the offerings. We quickly realized, though, that fun isn’t always easy; there’s a fine line between a design that is simple and a design that is pure. Striving for this purity has been both enjoyable and challenging. Why is it so important to continue to honor the company’s tradition of craft? It’s a part of Hubbardton Forge’s legacy—the commitment to the handmade—and it was one of the driving forces behind Vermont Modern. Everyone here believes in it, which is good since a lot of people contribute to the final product. For example, three different departments work intently on constructing the actual form—from molding and cutting the steel to cleaning raw edges and prepping the material for welding. After the elements are forged

LX_COM12_Radar_Debut.indd 108

together, they’re cleaned again before heading to the final three departments, starting with the finishing team. In this stage, the products are powder-coated and cured in our ovens, then sent to assembly, where they are completed and tested before shipping out. Share some of the materials you added to this line to complement Hubbardton’s signature steel. We introduced Vermont maple in a natural finish that is locally sourced from Maple Landmark, a wooden toy crafter 30 miles north of the forge in Vermont. We thought the wood element added a nice natural contrast to the steel, and its natural state adds a touch of Danish modern appeal.

Do you have a favorite piece in the collection? While I am intrigued by the Metro pendant (shown here), and the duality of its piping acting as a functional and primary decorative element, I am also drawn to our Copernicus design. It is very different from anything we have ever done, as it is very minimal and comprises only three basic components: an LED light, steel rails, and wooden balls that act as isolators. In the past, we would have tried to add a forged-steel element to give it something more, but with Vermont Modern we are really trying to keep the design pure by boiling it down to its innate essence.

PHOTO: JUDE GOLDMAN .

Hubbardton Forge’s newest collection is innovative and fresh and marks a shift from its more traditional offerings. What was the inspiration behind the line? The initial goal for Vermont Modern was to appeal to a younger, more urban demographic, to people who appreciate high-quality, contemporary design from a socially responsible domestic manufacturer who still crafts each piece one at a time.

RADAR / BEHIND THE BRAND

Family Affair MCKINNON AND HARRIS EMBRACES A LOCAL, HANDMADE ETHOS, INSTILLING A SENSE OF TRADITION AND PLACE IN THE COMPANY’S OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS.

“We always say that we don’t want to be the biggest outdoor furniture maker in the world; we just want to be the best,” says Anne Massie, the cofounder, with her brother Will, of Richmond, Virginia-based McKinnon and Harris. For the siblings, the key to being the best means keeping things local. The pair opened their doors in 1991, and the area, itself a historic center of craft, provides a spark that has allowed the company to thrive. Says Will Massie, “McKinnon and Harris could never live in an industrial park; we crave the energy and inspiration of our city.” Born from rough pencil sketches, McKinnon and Harris’ furnishings are handmade in a workshop flooded with light thanks to a clerestory running the length of the building. After being refined by the Massies and their team of engineers, the designs are put into production in a process relying on methods both old and new. Hammers, mallets, hand files of varying shapes and sizes, chisels and clamps can be found in the factory, along with a 62-person force of craftspeople who possess knowledge and skill born of years of practice. “You can palpably feel the drive for excellence and innovation and hear the hum of hands working and the sounds of metal being formed,” says Will. Time-honored practices, though, share space with cutting-edge technology, especially when it comes to the company’s coating process, which manages to be both environmentally friendly and effective. Inspiration for their pieces comes from traditional sources: A new collection launching this spring came by way of a nautical-feeling, French Art Deco chair from the 1930s. The roots of new designs also start closer to home—namely from Anne’s garden at her historic residence. “Spending a lot of time there makes it easy to realize what would

LX_COM12_Radar_BehindTheBrand.indd 110

make my own outdoor spaces more comfortable,” she shares. There’s also the Wyatt garden table collection, titled after the Massies’ grandmother, Ella Wyatt McKinnon Massie, while their Beaufort club chairs are named after a family dog always on the lookout for the most comfortable seat. The siblings are committed to keeping their focus on outdoor furnishings and their operations local. “Absolutely no one knows as much as we do about building and coating beautiful aluminum furniture,” notes Anne. “For now, we plan to continue innovating and perfecting our first love.” And, in keeping with that smaller yet better ethos, they’re staying small and close to home. “Our pieces deserve to never see a factory floor,” says Will. “Plus, it would be impossible to achieve our level of perfection on any larger of a scale. Mass-producing McKinnon and Harris’ Beaufort club chairs gather around a Wyatt table or overseas manufacturing would (top) at the home of company cofounder Will Massie (shown center, left, be a completely soulless endeavor, with sister and business partner Anne Massie); the duVal-Alexander sun and we couldn’t do it.” bed is shown above.

DESIGN PASSPORT LOOKING TO BOOKMARK A NEW MUST-READ WEBSITE? LUXE CATCHES UP WITH COSTAS VOYATZIS, THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND YATZER.COM AND ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING VOICES IN INTERNATIONAL DESIGN. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA PORTRAIT BY YIORGOS KAPLANIDIS

What made you decide to launch Yatzer? My obligatory draft in the Greek military came up. I had actually delayed it for quite a while, but at the age of 26, I couldn’t put it off anymore. So, I was drafted, and I had to leave my job, the career I was forging and all the contacts I had made behind, and I worried that the year and a half in the military would halt my career. It was this fear, that I’d lose touch with the industry, that actually became the catalyst for yatzer.com. I wanted to stay connected even though I wasn’t physically present. It began as my private blog and evolved into what it is today. Share your most-loved part of the job. I love to attend trade shows and do market coverage because I always discover hidden design gems. Although it takes days to complete my research after the shows, I can’t wait to press the publish button and share my discoveries with people who don’t have the chance to travel

Perhaps it’s not hard to believe that the same place that gave us the Acropolis and the Parthenon—Athens, Greece—would still be making major offerings to the worlds of architecture and design. Today’s contributions, though, aren’t being built with painstakingly stacked brick or stone, but with pixels: Greek native Costas Voyatzis’ international website, yatzer.com, has become an undeniable resource for design lovers all over the globe. Here, Voyatzis, a former magazine editor and avid traveler, retraces the path that led him to creating one of the hottest corners on the web and serves as the super-hip tour guide for all the best of the overseas creative scene. yatzer.com

RADAR / WORLD TOUR

and attend these shows but want to “relive” them through my eyes. But, also, it is important to cover these events for the people—designers and companies—who, although they have participated in the shows, due to their hectic schedules, don’t even have the time to check out what’s happening in the stand around the corner from theirs or in a different hall from the one they are in. Do you have any favorite trade shows? Definitely the first place belongs to Salone del Mobile Milano, which is a part of a much bigger event, Milano Design Week. Although there is never enough time to see everything, it is still the place where the industry’s major trends are born. Next, I have to mention Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, because who can ignore Scandinavian design? And, then, the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium, which has been happening every two years since 1968; the careful curatorial job behind it is visible in every detail of the fair. Top five brands to watch in 2017: For furniture, I’ve got my eye on Ginger & Jagger out of Porto, Portugal; for lighting, London’s Bert Frank has so much promise; Fabscarte from Milan has my vote for shaking up the world of wallpapers; Barcelona-based Octaevo is turning traditional stationery on its head; and, finally, Kikof from Tokyo has absolutely incredible offerings in ceramic tableware. Tell us about the products you have on your own wish list. There’s desk sculptures by graphic designer and architect Kristina Dam from Copenhagen. The set comes with a round paperweight in stoneware, a triangle bookend in marble, a wooden cone and an arc in brass (all shown on previous page). I also love the Ora Sculptural

table clock by the Switzerland-based design duo Panter & Tourron—a collaboration between Italy’s Stefano Panterotto and Alexis Tourron from France. The Stadium Light No. 1 by Danish furniture and product designer Niclas Jørgensen is also a favorite, as are the Touch trays by Studioilse for Zanat. Finally, I’m a big fan of the Plugged series of carafes, jugs, soliflore and table lamps by Lebanese interior architect and product designer Richard Yasmine. Why do you think it’s important to talk about design with a multicultural lens? There are many design sites around the world that focus on domestic design, but I believe that yatzer.com gives readers a wider perspective. It affords them the opportunity to see the trends as they are being created around the world, and they can therefore witness their progression and subsequent development. Is there a particular country whose design scene is really interesting you right now? What instantly comes to mind are the wireweaving works being created in Africa. These are amazing to me because the artists are combining modern technology—telephone wires—with traditional weaving techniques and craftsmanship. The results are so unique.

From top: The Plugged series of drink and glassware from Lebanese designer Richard Yasmine; an assortment of Touch trays by Studioilse for Zanat; and the Ora Sculptural table clock by Panter & Tourron.

WHO: Bryan Capp, the cofounder and creative director of Milton & King, a luxury designer wallcoverings firm based locally in Austin and abroad in Brisbane, Australia. He and his team take and share photos of the inventive prints for which the company is known. WHAT: Any hesitations about bold walls are easily assuaged with a scroll through this feed, managed by Capp. Each image shows an artful space backed with beautiful paper.

IN HIS WORDS: “Austin and Milton & King are cut from the same cloth. If we were both people, we’d be ruggedly good-looking, casual yet on trend, hardworking and reliable, known to enjoy a good social outing (but not the life of the party) and fit, fun and outdoorsy.”

CHECK IN

THE HIGHLAND DALLAS Last year’s redesign of The Highland Dallas has helped the tony hotel, located across the street from Mockingbird Station, reflect the kinetic energy of the dazzling city it calls home. Now part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, The Highland Dallas mixes a high-end boutique aesthetic with down-home cowboy chic, featuring 198 guest rooms that sport warm, distressed mock-leather headboards and sumptuous linens with occasional pops of color. The real attraction, though, is the hotel’s central location, which offers easy access to the adjacent light-rail hub’s movie theater and restaurants as well as Lower Greenville’s trendy shopping scene. thehighlanddallas.com

THE INSIDER BRENT HULL

Brent Hull is the man who can tell you whether a room needs a Federal mantel or if a home’s 1920s columns are salvageable. As the owner of Fort Worth-based contracting company Hull Historical for the past two decades, Hull pays keen attention to craftsmanship and detail and is responsible for returning some of the state’s most prominent buildings to their former glory. His reputable work has made him the authoritative expert on restoration and preservation, one reason he is the host of the History channel’s TV series Lone Star Restoration. Here, he gives Luxe the scoop on what’s new and now in Fort Worth. hullhistorical.com What shifts are you seeing in the restoration industry? People want things that are well-made and that have a story behind them. It is the same desire that encourages craft coffee and beer—people want a well-crafted home. I am finding there is a great disdain for “McMansions,” and more emphasis on the historic is a growing trend. It’s encouraging. Neighborhood you’re frequenting: My shop/office is in Near Southside, a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood just south of downtown. It has an eclectic blend of urban living with great restaurants and historic spaces. I like areas that combine new and old—they have more personality. Must-stop shops for design aficionados: Everything is well-made at Simple Things. Owner Jim Van Antwerp has a great eye for casual elegance, and his furniture store has an excellent feel. At Park + Eighth, owner and interior designer Christina Phillips has created spaces and rooms you can buy outright. She is a great designer and has a keen sense for things both beautiful and hip. I also love interior designer Kim Milam’s style at House Essential. Her shop is stocked with midcentury and contemporary decor and furniture.

DATE BOOK VINNY TAVARES

Brazilian native Vinny Tavares is nothing short of a stone hunter. His treasured gems? Exotic, natural-stone blocks he hand-selects from quarries spanning Madagascar to Brazil, Turkey to Italy and Iran to Mexico. The Aria Stone Gallery owner selects each block of material—whether pristine Calacatta Gold marble, gilded onyx or glimmering quartzite—and displays the resulting polished slabs in art-gallery form in his whitewalled Houston and Dallas showrooms. An avid world traveler thanks to his work, Tavares is now offering clients the chance to journey alongside him to quarries and see firsthand the mining and selection process. Trips are fully arranged, from luxury lodging to world-class cuisine nodding to the region. Because how many people can say they hand-selected their home’s own stone? Here, Tavares shares his can’t-miss spots while in Dallas. ariastonegallery.com 9 a.m. Every good morning starts with a swing through Local Press + Brew in Oak Cliff for a nitro cold-brew coffee. I also always grab a cold-pressed juice to go—I like The OC, with beet, carrot and green apple.

10 a.m. Embark on the 90-minute walking tour hosted by the Dallas Center for Architecture on the third Saturday of each month. It begins at the Dallas Museum of Art and winds through the Dallas Arts District, where our showroom is located. 11:30 a.m. Take a short drive to the Dallas Farmers Market for a farm-to-table lunch at Mudhen Meat and Greens. I love any dish with seafood and usually go for the buildyour-own bowl option with grilled salmon. 12:30 p.m. Hop on one of the free streetcars operating from Union Station downtown to shop the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff, home to a collection of boutiques, galleries and eateries. It’s worth a ride if only to see the panoramic views of downtown architecture as well as the Margaret Hunt Hill and Margaret McDermott bridges, both designed by Santiago Calatrava. 2 p.m. Return downtown for a visit to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Be

sure to browse the magnificent specimens in the Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall. 4 p.m. Stroll over to the Dallas Design District to shop the eclectic showrooms and galleries. While there, make a quick stop in Quill to grab an afternoon drink—the cocktails are some of the best in the city. 6 p.m. Dinner at Uchi is hands-down a must for sushi and dishes that are artfully presented. The menu changes daily, much like our stones, so I appreciate the limited uniqueness. My favorites include hama chili and machi cure. 7:30 p.m. Grab a cocktail at Stirr in Deep Ellum; here, the bar is topped with Aria’s Zebrino black-and-gold stone. As you sip, soak in the exceptional rooftop view. 9 p.m. Wrap up your day in Dallas with a drink at The Bar at Stoneleigh, where the cocktails are inspired by each decade of the hotel’s history. Reminisce as you sip your favorite year.

STRIPED DOWN NATASHA LAW: IN HER WORDS

7

Medium: Gloss on aluminum. Trademark: Delicate while maintaining a distinct contemporary feel. Women’s intuition: To capture the female form in vulnerable and intimate moments. Sources of inspiration: Usually from an image I find or a photo I’ve taken. Over the last few years, my process is generally sparked by a person or people around me and something about them I want to capture. Art school confidential: I grew up in a creative household, so after receiving my degree in history, I returned to art school because it felt natural and right. Role models: Ellsworth Kelly, John Baldessari, Tom Wesselmann, William Eggleston and Annelies Strba. Life motto: Don’t 4 panic. My art is… Vivid, figurative, simple, seductive and graphic.

KATE LONG STEVENSON: IN HER WORDS

8

Medium: Acrylic, gouache and watercolor—layered with charcoal. Trademark: Abstract Expressionist, representational and feminine. Women’s intuition: The female form is universally relatable and beautiful, and I love to take that familiarity and turn it on its head. Art game changer: Decidedly the biggest shift in my career was the decision to create for myself and not the market; it’s refreshing to produce work that I am passionate about. Creative influences: Painterly work—from Impressionism to John Singer Sargent’s brushstrokes and glowing color—and Abstract Expressionists like Joan Mitchell and Willem de Kooning. Never too many… Laughs, long conversations, lunch dates or snoozebutton hits. My art is… Gestural, energetic and mysterious.

CURVE APPEAL CAROLINE WALLS: IN HER WORDS

6

Medium: Both oil and synthetic polymer paint, along with charcoal and graphite. Trademark: Figurative—I tend to drift between abstract works, breaking down the line and form of a figure, and representational pieces. Women’s intuition: I deeply appreciate the aesthetics of the female form, its curves and sensuality, but I’m also interested in what lies beneath the surface, as the unseen aspects of a person are so easy to overlook. Art school confidential: I have always had a keen interest in the arts, so after five years of working abroad as a designer and art director, I finally returned to Melbourne, Australia, and enrolled in a postgraduate visual arts program. Creative influences: Marlene Dumas, Elizabeth Peyton, Louise Bourgeois—all women who work figuratively and with the female form. My art is… Spontaneous, fluid, sensual, free and evocative.

FLORAL & FEMME CHRISTINA BURCH: IN HER WORDS

10

9

Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas. Trademark: Mythopoetic and magical while forming a unique visual reality. Women’s intuition: Approaching portraiture in a fresh way, I want my female subject to have color and flavor and evoke an otherworldly dimension of pure mystery. Art school confidential: After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, I moved to New York City and the exposure to the art world and museums ultimately stimulated my desire to be a painter. Creative influences: Nature, light, color, meditation, Japanese aesthetics, tantric painting, and poetry by Han-Shan and Pablo Neruda. Dream collaborations: Traktung Yeshe Dorje and the band Just a Tourist. Role models: Sarah Sze, Nick Cave, Yayoi Kusama, Kara Walker and Kerry James Marshall. Life motto: Unlearn. My art is… Sublime, mysterious, abundant and real.

CONCRETE JUNGLE A TOUCH OF GREENERY ACCENTUATES AN IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY OF SIDE TABLES, CEMENTING THEIR STATUS AS CHIC ADDITIONS TO ANY URBAN DWELLING. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY KATE BENSON

SUSAN COLLINS WEIR

INTERIOR DESIGNER STUDIOCOLLINSWEIR.COM

The Parker nesting tables… Play with motifs from various eras. It’s clear from the tables’ neoclassical and early-19th-century influences that Showers cleverly drew her inspiration from traditional, triedand-true European design that somehow feels extremely fresh. Composition: The decorative aspect of the design is a strong counterpoint to the minimal urban backdrop, while the decadent bronze complements the magnolia leaves, adding warmth to the concrete. On keeping it real: Authentic and original design is vital to the work of designers. It drives the profession forward and underpins our collective advances, challenging us to reinvent the norms and push art and design forward. I’m impressed with Showers’… Innate ability to mix and revamp decorative styles, and her line with Kravet exemplifies her knack for bringing this cross section of furniture genres to one of the industry’s top design powerhouses. Creatively speaking: Good proportions and strong materiality are what I look for in an accent table, and these nesting tables epitomize both.

BRONZE BEAUTY THE PIECE: Parker Nesting Tables THE DESIGNER: Jan Showers FIND IT: kravet.com THE INSPIRATION: Inspired by her antique and vintage finds while traveling through Paris, Dallas design dame Jan Showers collaborated with Kravet to create a collection of glamorous yet practical pieces that add a stately-meets-subtle warmth to any setting. Showersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fondness for vintage brass and bronze, as well as good cable jewelry design, was the catalyst for the Parker nesting tables, which perfectly capture the designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penchant for all things Parisian.

TINY WONDER THE PIECE: Pedestal THE DESIGNERS: Vera Kleppe and Åshild Kyte FIND IT: esaila.com THE INSPIRATION: Stirred by a perennial curiosity to explore fresh materials and unexpected design forms, Norway-based design studio Vera & Kyte continually pushes the envelope with its sleek and electrifying creations. Pedestal holds true to those aesthetic ideals, making this versatile side table a perfect—and dynamic—addition to any home.

JEREMIAH BRENT INTERIOR DESIGNER JEREMIAHBRENT.COM

Vera & Kyte’s designs… Feel so easy and chic. What a unique pairing of form and function throughout this piece while maintaining total simplicity; nothing is over-designed, and yet it still feels like high design. Material connection: I love how the marble and perforated steel almost seem at odds, yet they are so harmonious together. Having lived in New York City… I am connected to this composition instantly. There is nothing like partaking in daily life (which can be real and messy and beautiful all at the same time) in a place like New York to truly understand the concept of a “concrete jungle,” and this composition reflects that experience perfectly. Visual play: Pedestal’s luscious curves cast against the sharp corners of the concrete highlight Vera & Kyte’s piece in a distinctly effortless and luxurious way. Creatively speaking: This table is a gorgeous compilation of so many periods of design and a true jack-of-all-trades: It’s as edgy as it is sophisticated and would work perfectly in just about any space.

I’m enamored by… Sean O’Hara’s masterful use of natural materials. The intricacy and sheer geometry it took to perfectly configure each piece into the finished product is incredible. This attention to detail and artistry elevates the design to an utmost standard of luxury. Material connection: These accent tables encompass multiple senses, providing not only sight and touch but also conjuring the sense of smell with their natural wooden qualities. A statement piece… Like this one can stand proud on its own accord without the need for additional attendees. Let’s be honest, no one wants a room full of items that compete. There is beauty in the ability to cultivate and curate our surroundings. Design is cyclical… Ever-evolving and ever-changing. We have to be cognizant of the pulse that inspires us to reinvent and keep design current. Creatively speaking: This design reminds me to find playfulness in refinement and that whimsy and sophistication are a beautiful blend.

Assembled with layers of imbricated solid-wood plates and shown here in both the Grey Sienna and Espresso finishes, the Spruce occasional tables remind us that bucolicinspired designs are indeed evergreen.

The Italia Terrazzo Stone Inlaid table illustrates her aesthetic ideal, which Hable realized by mixing patterns to add dimension to each piece within the collection. Mission accomplished.

TODD NICKEY + AMY KEHOE INTERIOR DESIGNERS NICKEYKEHOE.COM

Susan Hable’s designs… Seem rooted in nature, and we love her ability to create modern compositions with her subject matter. Her collections with Maitland-Smith bring out the company’s whimsical side in an earthy and delightful way. Composition: The understated nods to an urban garden evoke, for us, a South American midcentury mood. Material connection: With its many iterations, terrazzo often gets overlooked in certain applications, as it’s often used in large commercial spaces. We love that this particular use of the stone blend appears to read as foliage and has a transporting quality. There’s a reference to precious stones with this moody color palette that feels extremely luxurious as well. On keeping it real: In today’s crowded marketplace, we gravitate toward pieces with an emotional charge more than ever. The artistic intentions in Susan’s designs do not go unnoticed here with this dynamic piece.

INTERIOR DESIGNER BELLAMANCINIDESIGN.COM

I find Darryl Carter’s work to be eternally inspiring: He is able to convey a sense of serenity with his nuanced neutral palette and minimalistic collections of sculptural furniture. Material connection: There is a subtle tension between the industrial feeling of the powder-coated metal base and the elegant marble top. Creatively speaking: I’m especially drawn to the asymmetry of the bases and how their restrained luster allows for the angles to pop. I’d love to flank a sofa with a pair and position them askew to bring visual interest to an elevation. The industrial quality… Of the metal and the dynamic twist in the base remind me of artist John Chamberlain’s sculptures made of crushed automotive metal. They both share a sort of “machine age” elegance. On keeping it real: In a very dense world of design, it’s imperative to have a narrative and remain authentic to your aesthetic and values. Carter’s collection with Milling Road is a perfect example of just that.

Caracole’s dazzling accent table… Reminds me of a cut-jewel ring. Those sharp angular cuts and that grandiose yet practical shape catch your eye the way a fine piece of jewelry might. Composition: I am all about contrast when designing a space, and the pairing of the industrial environment with an as-polishedas-they-come piece feels luxurious, personal and even a little edgy. Finishes are the key… To a really gorgeous design. Oftentimes, gold and brass, albeit classics, just aren’t polished enough for me, but a gold bullion finish brings an incomparable sheen—it’s practically a gold mirror finish, which I find sexy and dramatic. Creatively speaking: Much of my work is grounded in traditional lines and architecture, so I’m always on the hunt for pieces that provide that necessary edge. The shape and allure of Caracole’s design fits the bill in that it’s fresh with just the right amount of flair.

ELDORADO STONE OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

When beginning the design or renovation of any outdoor living area, Brent Spann, president of Eldorado Stone, advises clients to “think about how you live and what you enjoy doing—be it reading, hosting, family time—and plan the space for that use.” He continues, “Ultimately it should fit the homeowner’s lifestyle and within the scale of the space ... with ample seating, a fire feature, shade and a kitchen, of course.” While many design trends come and go, the focus on indoor-outdoor spaces remains with an emphasis on creating a cohesive look for a seamless transition from the inside out. Conversation and living spaces with fire as a central point continue in popularity, as well as the extension of “smart-home” technology to outdoor living spaces. To accommodate today’s vast variety of outdoor options, Eldorado Stone offers an extensive outdoor product lineup, ranging from elegant fire bowls to inviting seating walls and beautiful outdoor kitchens, that transforms any personal retreat through color and texture. “We seamlessly marry design with functionality, making it easier than ever to create a memorable space,” Spann says.

Q+A What is inspiring you now? Year-round use of the outdoor space, even outside of the Sun Belt. Creative use of the space and amenities beyond going outside to grill a steak. Also, creating secondary living spaces for smaller areas in your outdoor space, like in a side yard or balcony. What are some design elements/innovations in outdoor living that you’re excited about? Outdoor-rated fabrics, furniture and appliances that look like they would belong in your indoor space. Not your grandmother’s plastic-covered lounge chair. What makes your product/brand distinctive in terms of material selection, product quality and functionality? Our fire bowls bring a heightened level of design and elegance to any outdoor space and come in a variety of styles, from classic to modern. Made from strong, glass fiberreinforced concrete and hand-sanded through a four-step finishing process, each fire bowl renders a true one-of-a-kind creation with subtle variations in color and texture, similar to natural limestone. 1

“Outdoor living is not a trend, but an extension of the home and an area that gets as much design attention as any other part of the house.” 2

FLEETWOOD WINDOWS & DOORS OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

An integral component of every home design, windows and doors go beyond changing one’s view. They impact security, energy efficiency and the resale value of your home. So when choosing the right doors and windows, homeowners must consider myriad decisions; everything from material selection and insulation to ease of use and maintenance. And for a seamless transition from the inside to the outside, “your window and door products must blend with the architectural intentions of the home,” says Mark McCoy, General Manager of Fleetwood Windows & Doors. To take the most advantage of the views, more and more homeowners are seeking larger expanses of glass for their multi-sliding and pocket doors, such as operable doors with leak-proof flush tracks that house glass larger than 60 square feet. “The insulated glass industry is introducing new technologies making larger glass available,” McCoy says. “And we are rising to the occasion, designing new and innovative products to accommodate this advancement with great success.”

“We create large, modern-style windows and doors that operate smoothly, require little maintenance and last for decades.”

THE MATERIAL OF CHOICE ALUMINUM Aluminum has become the material of choice for windows and doors because of its inherent strength, beauty and versatility. Since 1961, Fleetwood Windows & Doors has been using this fantastic resource to create its enduring windows and doors. As the most green and sustainable window material, aluminum is in high demand in luxury modern home designs across the country. To meet this demand along with the growing movement in green design, Fleetwood has applied thermal technology to its shapes to improve energy efficiency. Additionally, as insulated glass becomes available in larger sizes, the company continues to innovate with new aluminum products to accommodate today’s changing market.

HUBBARDTON FORGE OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

Lighting designer and manufacturer Hubbardton Forge has helped extend interior residential spaces seamlessly to the outdoors with its equally aesthetic and functional light fixtures. “Today, we think about the ‘home’ differently. It doesn’t end at the back door,” says David Kitts, design director at Hubbardton Forge. “People want to live fully, both indoors and out. We have given a lot of thought, during the creative process, to materials and finishes that stand the test of time and weather.” This vigorous approach distinguishes the company, which has, despite its success, maintained its handcrafted, domestically made values. Founded (and still based) in Vermont, Hubbardton Forge makes sure that, as Kitts notes, “Any piece leaving the forge is touched by multiple hands throughout the process of its creation. When you look at a Hubbardton Forge lighting fixture, you’re seeing the artistic achievements of a team dedicated to design.”

WESTERN WINDOW SYSTEMS OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

The popularity of outdoor living continues to surge at a record pace with consumers prioritizing these spaces as critical to a home’s overall look, feel and design. One trend growing in popularity is 90-degree multi-slide doors which, according to Scott Gates, president and CEO of Western Window Systems, “enable consumers to utilize moving glass walls to open up two walls of their home and flow the kitchen and living room to the outside.” Sustainability is also key, and an essential part of the design process at Western Window Systems. “Outdoor living is enabling consumers to leave a smaller carbon footprint,” Gates continues. “By making their outdoor patio a true feature and living space of the home, consumers are now able to build smaller, smarter homes. We believe everyone deserves the ability to open up their home on a beautiful day to entertain guests, laugh around the fire pit and enjoy a beverage.”

“We create products that are taller, wider and with more glass than anyone else in the industry. ”

Thus, enjoying the best of outdoor living is at the heart of luxury outdoor furniture manufacturer, CASTELLE. “Every outdoor space should incorporate elements for lounging, cooking, dining and entertainment,” CEO Steve Lowsky says. “And each room within the outdoor space should provide comfort, durability and the opportunity for showcasing personal style.” With the multitude of options available in outdoor decor today, styles can be mixed and matched according to homeowners’ preferences, such as with CASTELLE’s new Vertice line.

A ROOM WITH A HUE RICH PALETTES AND DRAMATIC CONTRASTS BRING ENERGY, PERSONALITY AND MAJOR STYLE TO THE HOME’S MOST-FREQUENTED ROOMS. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

While it’s safe to say we are still living in the era of the all-white kitchen and bath, there’s no denying even the smallest flourish of color can cast an irresistible spell. After all, 90 percent of what we take in via our senses comes to us through the gift of sight, and there’s little that commands our vision more than bright, beautiful color. No wonder a palette change has the power to reinvigorate a tired cook space or bring spa-like serenity to a bath. A color refresh offers a fearless antidote to what are often neutral utilitarian spaces, and who knows that better than designers? For some it’s a minor dalliance—the oft-quoted “pop of color” comes to mind—while for others, it’s a full-blown affair with a particular shade, as in this stunning forest green kitchen. Whatever your style, join us as we make the case for painting with bold strokes. 196 / LUXESOURCE.COM

GREEN SCENE

DEVOL KITCHENS This British company is leading the way in kitchen design, offering a fresh take on traditional English style. For this particular project, designer Helen Robson employed unexpected color to create depth and drama. devolkitchens.co.uk

How do you usually bring personality into the kitchen? While open shelves are practical, they also allow the client to display a bit of character, whether it’s through a collection of bowls or, in this case, lots of old paintings. A kitchen is so much more than a utilitarian space and having an area to display something personal helps to create a warm, welcoming feel. What’s your favorite thing about this design? I love that this kitchen is actually a really simple design of four bespoke cabinets. Simplicity is key in carrying off such a daring color choice. Of course, I also absolutely love the room’s originality and how it’s totally infused with the personality of the client. It never felt like she was trying to copy a look, but to devise something that was completely her own.

PHOTO: COURTESY DEVOL KITCHENS.

Share your vision for this project. Our client’s father was an antiques collector; so, we wanted to create something that really reflected that old gentleman’s club look. Dark colors are very of the moment, particularly green. In addition to being on trend, green also evokes nature. Part of the reason it works so well in this kitchen is that it ties the whole space together and brings about a cozy feel in an otherwise cavernous space.

WALL

The ever-popular color blocking trend isn’t confi ned to the runway. For this Laurel Canyon, California, kitchen, architect Barbara Bestor used a wall of dark blue and walnut cabinetry to anchor a predominantly white space. “The not-quite navy is a classic color, but here it feels modern,” says Bestor. Carrying the walnut through to the island and incorporating handmade ceramic lights by Heather Levine help balance the angular lines with more organic elements. The result: a cook space that’s sleek without sacrificing warmth. bestorarchitecture.com

When a stove is the star attraction, the supporting players need to stay relatively neutral, as in this family kitchen from Sarah Richardson Design. “The client requested the La Cornue range, so we decided to go bold with the color and mix metals for interest,” says designer Natalie Hodgins, who, along with Kate Stuart, helmed the project for the firm. Keeping the fixed elements, such as the soft gray millwork and honed marble countertops, quiet allows the bright blue stove and hood to steal the show. sarahrichardsondesign.com

Whether used in a backsplash or underfoot, tile is a sure way to dial up the pizzazz in the kitchen. Proving that even the classics can benefi t from a revamp, both subway and hexagonal styles feel exciting when rendered in new colors and finishes, as demonstrated in the above offering from Clé. The company’s latest hex collection features subtle color blocking in blush and coral shades and can be rotated numerous ways to produce different, graphic designs. cletile.com

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

In this master bath, situated in a Victorian townhouse in the heart of Notting Hill, London, a Spey castiron tub from Drummonds provides the perfect canvas for color. Brass fixtures were left unlacquered and unpolished to allow them to age naturally and acquire a rich patina and golden color. On the wall behind the tub is a vintage Art Deco screen, sourced from France.

Soft hues make spaces feel serene, so it’s no wonder muted tones are a perennial choice for the bath. A far cry from the retro bubblegum pink lavatories of yesteryear, today’s pastels pack their biggest punch when used sparingly. Here, a colorful roll-top cast-iron soaker picks up a pale coral from the whimsical patchwork tile floor. Shades of salmon, cream, cobalt and olive blend to form a space that doesn’t so much jolt you awake as ease you gracefully into the day.

AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE LATEST TIPS, TRICKS AND TRENDS TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR HOME. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

TECHNICOLOR VISION With the arrival of spring comes a riot of color. Consider the brilliant yellow of daffodils or the bluish-purple of hyacinths bursting forth from the ground. But why should Mother Nature have all the fun? This period of rebirth and renewal is the perfect time to rethink color inside the home. For the last few seasons, white walls have dominated the design space, but tastemakers are now slowly turning to saturated hues and bold brights that command attention, as in the vibrant and cheery sitting room shown here. “Your home affects your mood, so why not make it a happy place?” says the room’s designer, Rebekah Caudwell. Over the next few pages, come along with us for a lively romp through the many colors on the spectrum.

HAUTE HUE

There’s a reason fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli’s signature shade was “shocking pink.” The fearless style maverick believed the vivid color had life-giving properties. No wonder designer Amanda Nisbet chose a similar fuchsia for the dining room of this Park Avenue apartment in New York. “The saturated pink silk walls are luxuriously sexy, while still being cozy and welcoming—the perfect atmosphere for a successful evening,” she says. amandanisbetdesign.com

PRETTY IN

Shaking off its girly connotation, blush has emerged in the last year as an unconventional yet versatile neutral. Here, it lends a merengue-like quality to a plush, velvet club chair. With its channel-back design, the Charlotte armchair by India Mahdavi is strikingly sculptural and elegant. It’s proof that this particular shade of pink is all grown-up now. ralphpucci.net

THE REAL

Just like a good book can be an escape from reality, a library should be a haven from the outside world. For this Greenwich Village apartment, New York-based design firm Tilton Fenwick blanketed the library walls in a rich teal lacquer, a color inspired by the classic Schumacher print in which the sofa is upholstered. “Since the room has no windows, the lacquer envelops the space, creating a jewel box effect,” says the firm’s founder Anne Maxwell Foster. We can’t think of a more stimulating environment in which to while away a few hours. tiltonfenwick.com

Blue continues its reign as a cabinet color of choice in the kitchen, but judging from this dining space, its popularity is spreading to other parts of the house. Here, San Francisco-based designer Grant K. Gibson employed Sandberg’s floral Raphael wallpaper and high-gloss blue paint to draw attention to a built-in bar area. The result: a functional entertaining hub that’s also a stunning focal point for dinner guests. grantkgibson.com

For this luxury apartment on the Rue Bonaparte in Paris, designer Gérard Faivre looked to the building’s Second Empire pedigree for inspiration. “Emblematic colors from that era—oranges, greens, blues and shades of gold—symbolized wealth and luxury, and now bring sparkle to the home,” he says. With its friendly, convivial atmosphere and bistro table and chairs, the space also pays homage to the chic cafes of its neighborhood, Saint Germain-des-Prés. gerardfaivreparis.com

Austin-based designer Elizabeth Mollen of Stone Textile found inspiration for this living room in an unusual source: her client’s collection of midcentury flamingo prints. “We picked a deep-blue wall color and used that as a starting point, then pulled colors from the artwork,” says Mollen. A violet rug, pale lavender upholstered sofas and a green malachite stool add to the color story, creating a subtle and sophisticated jewel-toned palette that’s definitely not for the birds. stonetextilestudio.com

There’s more than one way to make a bold entrance: consider this New Orleans foyer designed by Ty Larkins. A graphic, black-and-white hand-painted floor brings youthful joie de vivre to a foyer painted with Farrow & Ball’s Chappell Green. “The introduction of black tempers the vibrancy of the wall color, resulting in visual harmony,” says Larkins. Apple green lampshades and 1940s-style French furnishings strike a balance between whimsical and traditional. tylarkins.com

With her finger on the pulse of today’s kitchen designs, Helene Terry of Helene’s Luxury Kitchens offers a breadth of invaluable insight into the art and science of the kitchen remodel. To start, Terry advises selecting a reputable team that works well together and checking all references of recent and past projects. A team of professionals should supply a comprehensive set of plans, elevations and scope of work, so that the details are listed clearly. “Renderings are a great way to eliminate surprises, plus wisely select a team that shares all of the CAD drawings to avoid double work and cost. If it is a major renovation, I strongly advise the homeowner to move out and be sure that all belongings on-site are protected,” she says. As for stylistic preferences, Terry notes the steady rise of contemporary cabinetry and cutting-edge appliances. “Homeowners want clean lines and minimal reveals. Premium brands of appliances offer a multitude of products to accommodate these requests. Flush wall ovens, inset cooktops and integrated refrigeration are a few examples of how to achieve clean lines when designing a kitchen.

RICK’S HARDWARE & DECORATIVE PLUMBING Dallas | Texas | 214.736.8600 | rickshardware.com

Clients seek the expertise of Rick’s Hardware & Decorative Plumbing for home renovation projects of vastly different scopes, styles and spaces. The common thread that binds these homeowners is the biggest question posed to the team at Rick’s time and time again: “What will stand the test of time and not become dated?” The real answer, as Arman DeLaughter, the company’s general manager notes, is that all things become dated, but some more quickly than others. “So what do you do?” he asks. “Invest in good staples.” The key to long-term success in interior renovations is to truly love the materials selected— from cabinetry to countertops to flooring—as these are among the expensive items to change. “When in doubt, ask the experts,” DeLaughter advises. “Don’t be afraid to ask us what is new and stylish that matches your style, instead of settling on trends that may be on their way out.” 1

RENOVATION POINTERS FROM THE PROFESSIONALS Have an open mind and enjoy the process. Your renovation is supposed to be fun. Be prepared for road bumps, but know it will all work out. Communicate your expectations, timelines and expected quality of work with your contractor—not only in the initial consultation, but throughout the project over and over again. Early and continued communication is key to having the job done promptly and accurately.

ost would agree a spectacular setting enhances a home-building project’s success, especially if it involves approximately 500 acres on a wooded bluff in Texas Hill Country with views of the Nueces River valley and Goat Mountain. Add to that a grove of mature oaks, ample outcroppings of Texas sage, abundant wildlife and a migratory fly zone any birder would envy, and the raw natural beauty alone of one such locale is nirvana. But when it came to designing a residence here for an empty-nester couple with previous ties to the area’s aptly named Goat Mountain Ranch, the team at Lake Flato Architects—which included partner Karla Greer and associate Rebecca Bruce Comeaux, along with principal Ted Flato and project architect Trey Rabke—wanted to do more than just frame the best views and determine the optimal solar orientation; they also wanted to make

_LX_TX45_LakeFlato_16.indd 228

a strong connection to the rugged surroundings. “The wife’s father purchased the property in the early 1980s, and the couple started making regular trips there shortly thereafter,” Greer says. “Because they were so closely aligned with the land, we wanted to figure out how to draw both local and personal history into the project.” It was those ideals that first attracted the couple to the Lake Flato team, whose reputation for crafting homes that connect with the environment preceded them. “We saw a house they did in a magazine and liked the attention to detail, their green philosophy and the fact that their buildings fit with the surroundings,” the wife says. “When we found out they were in San Antonio, I thought it must be fate.” In accordance with the firm’s philosophy, and as a way to relate to the region, the architects used the same stone that German immigrants had mined to build their domiciles nearby in the 1800s. After all, Hill Country is limestone territory and, according to Greer, many of its early homes featured

thick stone walls with small windows. “We evolved that idea into a modern interpretation that included a lot more glass to engage with the landscape,” she says. Though the materials are more traditional, the forms are modern. The finished home features two block volumes—the main living areas, including the kitchen, face north while the master suite and library look east—connected by a vine-covered, wood-crafted arbor that provides a shady respite for all who enter. “The wife grew up in Louisiana, and the breezeway has a romantic quality reminiscent of the South,” says Comeaux, who employed shed roofs with overhangs to provide additional protection from the harsh summer sun. Perfecting the stonework on the parapets demanded skilled craftsmanship, so project manager Kelly Steele of Kelly Steele Construction Management—hired by the now-retired builder, Jud Prince of Prince Construction—assembled a seasoned crew with three generations of masons. “The walls are one of the most significant features and totally native to Texas,” says Steele, who, as the early settlers did, used a dry burlap rub on the walls for an authentic finish. Prince later enlisted Robert Holmes of Holmes Homes as project manager to complete the work and oversee final details, such as applying the exterior paint. “With the wife’s direction, I’ve also since added a stoop roof over the back door,” Holmes says. Completing the materials palette, reclaimed cypress planks and timbers salvaged from the wife’s childhood plantation home grace the ceilings and some of the interior walls, while steel kettles once used for boiling sugar serve as water catchment containers for the rainwater system. “There were lots of old buildings on that Louisiana property that were falling down, and over the years we salvaged and stored the wood,” the wife says. Old cypress planks weren’t the only recycled materials; the couple also incorporated furnishings and artwork that they collected through the years. “Whatever we had seemed to work,” the wife says. “I tend to like warm colors, so I centered everything in the living room around our brown sofa and added in reds, golds and greens.” Pieces like kitchen counter

stools with pitchfork backs and a circa-1800s antique dining room table surrounded by mahogany William IV chairs match the setting perfectly. “It was important that everything fit with the nearby nature,” she adds. The final piece of securing the structure’s connection to its dramatic locale fell to landscape architect Christine Ten Eyck, along with colleagues Kent Sundberg and Cassie Bergstrom. Ten Eyck utilized limestone pavers, retaining walls and steps to make the transition from the house to the landscape. “I wanted the architecture to melt into the garden,” she says. Her plan introduced more oaks and sage along with native Hill Country plants such as yuccas and agaves to fill in the blanks around the house. Now the homeowners heartily appreciate how beautifully their home integrates with the landscape. “Thanks to the thoughtful floor plan, the sun follows our progress and there’s a natural flow to our day that includes a seamless transition from inside to outside,” the husband says. His wife adds: “It’s wonderful living in a solid house that feels like it’s always been here and will always be here.”

ost of my art happens in the moment,” says Fort Worth-based artist Stephen Battle, whose works include abstract oil paintings on canvas and mixed-media works on paper. “It is a result of exploration and learning how to express what I want it to say.” Battle—who holds a Bachelor of Arts in archaeology and a Master of Fine Arts in painting—first began painting in college after a professor stirred in him an understanding of art’s importance and impact on history. Fueled by this realization and influenced by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Cy Twombly, Battle began feverishly working on raw canvases stapled to his apartment walls. “To find my passion for art, I had to learn how to see its nondecorative meaning,” he explains. “And I found it was a new

He credits stints living in Jackson, Wyoming, and Taos, New Mexico, as huge influences and, most recently, enjoys hiking with his sketchpad on a heavily forested 10-acre family property. “When I’m in nature, I think about how the natural world functions and how that relates to human life,” he explains. “It’s unpredictable.” One simple genetic mutation, for example, “might lead to an entirely different branch in the tree of life,” he says. Exploring that idea through his art, Battle incorporates into his paintings disparate elements that each have a unique trajectory, some becoming buried and others more prominent. “A new form appears,” he says, “which leads

Abstract artist Stephen Battle is shown above completing a piece titled Gathering Origins and Territory. His works on canvas incorporate mediums such as oil, acrylic, pastel, charcoal and pencil (as seen on the previous pages, left); a recent series (previous pages, right) examines “the nature of change while considering a context that remains constant,” he says. In his Fort Worth studio, Battle retains his used palettes (opposite, top) and keeps his materials (opposite, bottom) close at hand.

“ART CAN BRING A SENSE OF MEANING AND UNDERSTANDING, WHICH GIVES ME A LOT OF FULFILLMENT.”

to the next form.” Just as nature evolves, Battle continues to build layers of paint, sometimes covering forms he may have previously created, but all of it remains in existence underneath the surface level—even if it’s not visible. Further drawing nature into his work, Battle often applies paint using sticks or even his hands instead of conventional brushes. Just like his college days, he also works on canvases or large sheets of paper stapled to the walls—only now, the paper lines his 1,200-squarefoot studio. “I enjoy working on paper because of the immediacy and texture of it,” he says. Within his studio space—behind the home Battle shares with fiancée Layla Luna, also an artist, and their 9-year-old daughter, Persephone—a color-splotched table covered with

rolled-up paint tubes, crumpled rags and other materials juxtaposes the gallery-like feeling. Battle notes that an “awareness of how light changes” through the studio’s skylights as clouds pass in front of the sun also keeps him linked to natural time and rhythms. Battle, whose work is represented by Herold Fine Art in Dallas and occupies the homes of collectors nationwide, hopes his artwork and the concepts it explores resonate with people in the same way a poem or a piece of music might, offering a constant source of reflection and yielding new insights over time. “Art can bring that same sense of meaning and understanding, which gives me a lot of fulfillment,” he says. “It’s why I’m always experimenting, always moving forward.”

Battle’s painting titled Soil Tire Rest (above, left) features oil and acrylic on canvas. The artist’s work space includes a large table-turned-palette (above)—covered in paint tubes, oils, turpenoid, plates and more—where he mixes his paints. Shown opposite, Kona, the dog Battle shares with his fiancée, often keeps the artist company in his studio.

CUE THE CONTRAST A DESIGN-SAVVY HOMEOWNER LOOKS FOR OUTSIDE GUIDANCE TO GIVE HER KATY HOUSE A MODERN EDGE. WRITTEN BY JENNIFER SERGENT / PHOTOGRAPHY BY MAX BURKHALTER

A chest from Area anchors this Katy home’s foyer, which showcases artworks the owners collected from the Marburger Farm Antique Show and pieces by C. Gregory Gummersall and Daniel Long, both from Artful Sol Gallery in Vail, Colorado. Chairs from Memorial Antiques & Interiors wear Schumacher fabric. The Aerin lamp and John Rosselli pendant are from Visual Comfort & Co.

T

he house was already very pretty, but there was a disconnect between what was there and how the client wanted her home to look and feel,” says designer Paloma Contreras, referring to the Katy residence of Lori and David Underwood and their two children. A design enthusiast herself, Lori was a longtime follower of Contreras’ widely read design blog and knew the Houston professional would be the right fit to help achieve the look she desired. “I wanted someone with a similar style who could take it to the next level and challenge me to make bolder decisions,” the wife says. Lori had worked with the design-build firm Partners in Building to distinguish the home’s architecture and interior layout, incorporating elements such as white stucco siding and a beamed cathedral ceiling in the great room, but she stopped short of fully realizing the interior design. Then, three years after the family moved in, “I had a fire sale on all of my old things and hired Paloma,” she says. Contreras credits her client’s great sense of style for providing a clear idea of the design vision: a high-contrasting black-and-white palette punctuated by graphic patterns, gold accents and modern yet sophisticated finishes. The first order of business was the master suite. “Since becoming a mom, I have never completed a master bedroom for my husband and me,” Lori says. “It was always at the bottom of my list.” Contreras gave the couple’s room top billing with a geometric rug by David Hicks, one of Lori’s favorite design icons, and hung two black-and-white

The Jonathan Browning Studios chandelier is from David Sutherland.

A chair in Schumacher fabric with Samuel & Sons trim from Culp Associates tops a rug from Creative Flooring.

paintings—among many the wife had accumulated over time—above chests flanking the bed. “With the white walls, we needed something to ground the room,” Contreras explains. “Because everything else is modern, I also thought it would be nice to layer in a neoclassical shape using traditional chests as bedside tables.” As a dramatic gesture in the adjoining master bathroom, the designer used blackand-white mosaic marble on the tub wall, which plays off the adjacent room’s David Hicks rug while also dressing up the area’s otherwise plain windows. Downstairs—where the open floor plan’s foyer, dining room and great room are all in view of each other—the goal was to create a cohesive look. “We wanted each room to feel distinctive and special on its own, but we also knew each space opens to the others—which meant they needed to tell a story and share a color palette,” Contreras says. To create a consistent scheme in the foyer and dining room,

LX_TX45_Contreras_16.indd 255

the designer once again mined Lori’s collection of blackand-white paintings, this time placing a series of small works over a chest in the foyer. And in what she calls a “lightbulb moment,” she brought a larger work from the family room into the dining room to complement the Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks Channels material selected for the draperies. “This fabric is similar to the wall tile in the master bathroom,” Contreras points out. “This is our unexpected moment.” As a bonus, there was enough leftover drapery material to cover three footstools in the neighboring great room, which adds another element of continuity. In the towering great room, Contreras continued to amplify the home’s drama with rigorous symmetry. The roof line and fireplace create a dividing line between identical 9-foot-long white sofas, gilt-trimmed consoles topped with bronze-and-brass lamps, antique mirrors purchased on New Orleans’ Magazine Street and charcoal-velvet club chairs.

The dining room’s custom hostess chairs mingle with Suzanne Kasler’s Amsterdam side chairs for Hickory Chair in Schumacher velvet, surrounding a table from Vieux Interiors. Thomas O’Brien’s Elizabeth chandelier speaks to the Aerin lamps—both from collections for Visual Comfort & Co.—on a Century buffet custom-painted by Sheema Muneer. The vintage mirror is from Kuhl-Linscomb.

At the center of the room, an oversize glass-and-brass coffee table speaks to an equally large brass chandelier hanging above. “We needed to beef up everything to make it work in the large scale of that room,” the designer explains. Contreras opted for a more intimate setting in the den, making it the only public area that doesn’t showcase the black-and-white palette established elsewhere. Instead, she based the color scheme on a large charcoal gray sectional Lori had custom-made, while a colorful abstract painting from Lori’s collection serves as an equally compelling focal point on a wall. The designer punctuated the space with a white Eames lounge chair and ottoman, items the wife had always coveted. An organic coffee table made from a tree trunk in Mexico balances the white-lacquer console and blue-velvet ottomans behind the sectional. “The space needed to reflect the home’s overall vibe and aesthetic,” Contreras says, “but also feel cozy with durable fabrics that stand up to heavy use.” As Contreras proceeded from one room to the next until completing the home’s interior design, her client found comfort in the certainty of the designer’s choices. “She doesn’t waver, and that’s something I’ve always struggled with,” Lori says. “At first, my friends didn’t understand why I hired a designer; they said, ‘You can do this yourself!’ But it’s the best decision I ever made.”

DALLAS HOMEOWNERS AND THEIR LONGTIME DESIGNER WORK TOGETHER TO BLEND CLASSIC, CONTEMPORARY AND ART DECO STYLES. WRITTEN BY JORGE S. ARANGO PHOTOGRAPHY BY NICK JOHNSON

For a Dallas home designed by Gonzalo Bueno, landscape designer Matt Stevens of Texas Garden Services helped the husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who made the front-lawn sculptureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;create a simple yet formal landscape with a concrete-and-Lueders-limestone walkway centered on the front door. Plantings include burgundy snapdragons with a Wintergreen boxwood hedge, English ivy and pyramidal boxwoods in containers, and crepe myrtle trees.

used her fashion sense as inspiration for how to design the home,” says designer Gonzalo Bueno, referring to the wife in a couple who asked him to help reimagine the interiors of their new home in Dallas’ Highland Park neighborhood. “She’s totally glamorous and exotic.” Indeed, inspired by fashion designers such as Valentino, the wife invariably cuts an elegantly tailored silhouette. So for their residence, Bueno surmised correctly that a certain level of glamour was in order. Bueno and the wife were childhood friends who had grown up together in Monterrey, Mexico, so the designer has watched her sense of style evolve over time. When the couple bought their first home in the same Dallas neighborhood years before, Bueno was a natural choice to design that residence. Now with four children aged 13

LX_TX45_Bueno_12.indd 267

to 18, the family desired a new home with more space, including a playroom, backyard and pool, and once again they turned to Bueno for his expertise. Highland Park, developed in the early 1900s, is no stranger to high style. In fact, it is the work of renowned city planners Wilbur David Cook—the famous landscape designer of Beverly Hills—and George E. Kessler. For their second residence in the neighborhood, the couple were drawn to a grand home with an elegant Mediterranean façade, “which we kept mostly the same,” the wife says. The interior revealed a glamorous aesthetic, with moldings and paneled walls, yet it still needed to reflect the couple’s personalities and display their art. “When we travel, we enjoy acquiring artworks from different cultures,” the husband explains.

In the entry, a glass-topped table with an acrylic Malabar base from Allan Knight and Associates rests on a wool-and-silk-blend rug from Calvirugs in Monterrey, Mexico. The ornate millwork is by JG Designs, and Sherwin-Williams’ Ivory Lace coats the walls.

With this in mind, it was imperative Bueno conjure a home that was not only glamorous but also tasteful. The first order of business, he decided, was to blanket the spaces in a warm, lustrous shade of white. “The clients wanted pieces with a lot of personality,” he explains. “I felt I needed a clean canvas to accommodate the eclectic furniture and art.” Alterations to the interior were made with the help of the husband, who was involved in the day-to-day construction process in collaboration with builder Raul Mendoza of Mendoza Brothers 13. Major changes included updating all the fireplaces from cast stone to marble, remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms and relocating a stairway that originally began its climb right next to the kitchen range.

LX_TX45_Bueno_12.indd 273

The wife was also closely involved with the home’s interior design, and she had predilections for sumptuous finishes and materials such as lacquer, gold and crystal, Bueno says. He worked with the wife’s tastes by avoiding Persian carpets, too many gilded furniture pieces and plush damasks, instead outfitting the home in silks and velvets devoid of pattern. In the den, practical choices such as a sectional covered in a cotton blend offer resilience. However, even in this space, the design standard remains high with gold sconces, custom bronze grillwork designed by Bueno and antique cloisonné urns. Also atypical of the mostly patternfree home is the master bedroom, which came enveloped in hand-painted Gracie wallpaper. “We debated whether

to take it down,” Bueno says. “But it was so pretty and perfectly placed around the room that we selected all the pieces in the space based on it.” The home’s furnishings, says the wife, “are eclectic because they are from various periods and styles yet are classic and timeless.” While the dining room features a contemporary custom table designed by Bueno, Dakota Jackson chairs and a modern chain-mail chandelier, it also includes an antique French mirror, an Italian Renaissance reproduction mantel and a 1940s French sideboard. Similarly, the formal living room showcases an Italianate table by Ebanista and a tailored contemporary sofa flanked by stag-leg guéridon tables topped with Brutalist lamps. Throughout the residence, Bueno balanced the gold, crystal and glossy surfaces with black. “Black accents tie

it all together,” he says, noting the shade appears on the mantel and pedestals in the dining room, various lighting pieces throughout the house and the piano, the guéridons’ stone tops and a chest in the formal living room. Brighter splashes of color are largely reserved for artworks, many by Latin artists. The completed design is a home that exudes glamour while remaining stylishly tailored and elegantly refined— thanks not only to Bueno’s shared understanding of the homeowners’ ideas and vision but also to the inherent beauty of the house itself. “When this project came along, we knew that we would have a great result due to all the knowledge I had gained from the homeowners’ first Dallas residence,” Bueno says. “But the house itself also had such broad potential, which contributed to the successful outcome.”

JOHN WRIGHT MARTIN John Wright Martin Building + Interiors Dallas, Texas 469.919.8326 john@johnwrightmartin.com johnwrightmartin.com

Leveraging a strong background in business along with his innate passion for design, John Wright Martin launched his eponymous interior design firm to fulfill his mission to create spaces that are simultaneously stylish and creative, as well as comfortable and inviting. “My philosophy is simple,” he says. “Deliver a space that evokes a feeling of ‘holy cow, I live here’ every time a client walks through the door.” And, judging from his stunning portfolio of luxury residential and commercial projects, it seems Martin has been doing just that. As for his creative process, Martin says it all starts with zeroing in on the perfect piece. “I start each day by working a crossword puzzle. My creative process can be ignited by inspiration from clues in the puzzle that then lead me toward something I want to buy or build a space around,” he explains. “Once I find a unique object, the rest unfolds naturally for me.”

I typically find an unexpected object and build a room around it.

What led you to your current profession? A lot of pro bono work and a never-waning love for all things design-related—I have a thick background in business management and decided to shift my focus from managing others’ businesses to starting my own. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Yes because my stamp on every project is done by the same artist, Michael Shellis. He always puts the finishing touch on every project I do. What do you like most about your job? I like the people I meet and the warm fuzzies I get inside, knowing that I am changing lives by simply creating and changing spaces through design. How do you define a successful project? The moment I see the jaw drop, I know I've succeeded. What project has brought you the most satisfaction and why? I took an 8-foot-tall by 12-foot-wide teak root system and turned it into a fountain. You'll just have to see the pictures to understand—it’s pretty incredible. What is one thing your clients would be shocked to know about you? If I could design a home for Lisa Vanderpump (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) but in NYC, my dream would come true.

Creating a clean slate was the driving concept behind the use of limited color in this dynamic interior. The restrained introduction of some “dazzle” softened the masculine overtones, producing an effect that is fresh, livable and strikingly beautiful.

SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION

In addition to its reputation as the perfect urban backdrop for iconic businesses— only New York and Houston host more Fortune 500 companies—Dallas can stake its claim as one of the nation’s most thriving luxury residential markets. “Dallas has really blossomed in the last 10 years with an incredible arts district, shopping, restaurants and a wealth of exceptional private and public schools; in a nutshell, Dallas has become hip,” says Becky Frey, whose namesake team is part of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. “But beyond that, Dallas is very affordable for people who are coming here from New York, California or overseas. I work with several buyers from abroad, and Dallas remains a big draw. Overall, we’re in a very strong market.” Few if any real estate professionals have a better understanding of the Dallas market than Frey, who is approaching $1 billion in sales during the course of her prolific career. For Frey, intense dedication is an extension of her extraordinary team and of the Briggs Freeman brand, which emphasizes personalized service, clear communication, stellar networking and a strong connection to some of the region’s most prestigious communities—including Highland Park, Devonshire, Greenway Parks, downtown, Bluffview, Preston Hollow, Oak Lawn and Lakewood.
