The infinite potential of a blank canvas. The reinvention of your favorite room. The home you hope to create. WE BELIEVE THE MOST PLEASING ENVIRONMENTS ARE A REFLECTION OF HUMAN DESIGN. THEY ARE A STUDY OF BALANCE, SYMMETRY AND PERFECT PROPORTIONS. WE RESPECT THE HIERARCHY AND IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE, FURNITURE AND DÉCOR THAT CREATE HARMONY. IT’S A DISCIPLINE OF ADDITION THROUGH SUBTRACTION, WHERE LESS BECOMES MORE, AND CALM IS CREATED THROUGH CONTINUITY. THE RESULT IS A HOLISTIC DESIGN THAT IS STRONG YET SIMPLE. WE SUBSCRIBE TO LEONARDO DA VINCI’S PHILOSOPHY THAT “SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE SOPHISTICATION.” OUR DESIGNERS PLACE YOU AT THE CENTER OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS, WORKING TO REALIZE THE POTENTIAL OF YOUR HOME, AND TO BRING YOUR VISION TO LIFE.

All you have to do is imagine. FOR AN APPOINTMENT, VISIT THE RH DESIGN ATELIER AT YOUR LOCAL GALLERY OR CONTACT US AT RH.COM/INTERIORDESIGN.

EDITOR’S LETTER

STYLE MATTERS

I recently came upon this headline while scrolling online: FIVE EASY STEPS TO DEFINE YOUR HOME’S STYLE! Curiosity got the better of me, so I clicked and was served up five “looks” from which to discover my sense of self. A one-click approach to finding your style seems so, well, unimaginative. I’ve always subscribed to the belief that sartorial matters are personal and best left to marinate slowly over years, decades, a lifetime. This issue, like each one we publish, is populated with all manner of looks, attitudes and ideas (edited through our prism) and designed to spark creativity and expose you to a fresh inkling or new take on a deep-rooted idea. Here, we explore the age-old art form of portraiture, shine a spotlight on lighting that

ranges from Bauhaus-inspired to overtly maximalist, and report on tips and advice for entertaining at home. That’s our approach: to present viewpoints, designs and concepts with the hope that there’s an element or two for you to integrate and put your own spin on. Like people, the most interesting homes are layered, eclectic and unhurriedly evolved—never a quick click. From my house to yours, I wish you a season filled with beauty and enjoyed with those that you love.

CONTRIBUTORS

BEHIND THE SCENES GET TO KNOW A FEW OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS THEY TALK ALL THINGS DESIGN. PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ

BRADLEY NESBITT WEATHERLY If I could interview anyone, I would… Want to talk to Kate Middleton, off the record. Any time you have the opportunity to speak to someone whose life is in front of the lens, it’s always nice to have moments that are stripped away to meet the real person, know what makes them laugh, get insight into their quirks and see who they are outside of the public sphere. Favorite Luxe interview: I enjoyed the conversation I had with landscape architect Mario Nievera of Nievera Williams. It was so interesting to see how he thinks of grass as rugs and boxwoods as wallpaper. His entire approach to outdoor landscape is so relatable to interiors. What type of architecture inspires you the most? I’m a Southern girl, so I love both Greek Revival and Georgian styles. I can almost smell the magnolia when I see a Greek Revival house; it immediately takes me home. Words of wisdom: Never let fear determine your steps.

JESSICA KLEWICKI GLYNN Photographer / Palm Beach

What’s intriguing you now in the world of design? I like that traditional methods of crafting furniture are making a comeback with many bespoke designers. I also enjoy when people repurpose antique hardware, including hinges, doorknobs and pulls. Top three things on your design wish list: I would love a marble-topped Saarinen dining table for my new breakfast room, some beautiful wall sconces for my bedroom (particularly Aerin’s black Charlton wall lights), and a redo of my pool area—something sleek yet traditional such as a bluestone pool deck. Who is the most fascinating person you’ve ever met? Growing up, all of my summers were spent at our family vacation home in Montauk. One day, while working the ticket booth at a movie theater in East Hampton, I was reading Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions. A gentleman walked up and said, “So how do you like that book?” I told him I loved it, and he said, “Do you want me to sign it?” I looked up and it was Kurt Vonnegut. I still have the signed copy on my bookshelf.

NICK JOHNSON Photographer / New York What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received? On my first day as a photo assistant, I worked on a shoot of Martha Stewart with the legendary architectural photographer Scott Frances. Afterward, I was telling Scott what a great day it was and he said, “As far as your career goes, you are what you shoot.” I try to remember this to make sure I get the best shots possible. Whose work are you influenced by design-wise? Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone of Consort Design and Estee Stanley. Their work is casual, comfortable and cool. I try to take what I can from them and incorporate it into my own house. Memorable Luxe assignment: While my assistant and I were shooting a Colorado house with amazing views, we heard a loud rustling behind us and saw a bear standing in the woods. We left so fast that we forgot the camera and had to get reinforcements to go back and get our equipment. The bear didn’t indulge us for any selfies, though.

PATRICK SORAN Writer / Denver Prized possessions: Since my husband and two dogs aren’t possessions, I would have to say my neoclassical console table built in Italy around 1850 (that I love more than I ought to), a pair of wood carvings of Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris that I bought in a shop on the banks of the Nile, and the little plaque I got in ninth grade for Best Creative Writing. What books have impacted you the most? First, William Zinsser’s On Writing Well. The author recommends that a writer get to the point, tell the story and then run to the nearest door. Right now, though, I’m obsessed with the symbolism of diamonds and radio signals in Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See. If not a writer, what you would be? A flâneur is a person who does nothing much but walk around hither and yon and enjoy what he sees. I’d flâneur in Paris, Manhattan and San Francisco, thank you very much. Then I’d have lunch.

RADAR In-your-face art and unexpected inspiration from other creative industries and disciplines are poised to shape your home and up your style potential. ART + DESIGN FORECAST / NOVEMBER | DECEMBER 2016


RADAR / ON DISPLAY

The rich colors and dreamy gaze of this hand-stitched piece of portraiture, titled Abbi, 2013, by Missouri-based artist Cayce Zavaglia, bring Renaissance art to mind.


ABOUT

FACE THE BEST PLACE FOR A PORTRAIT ISN’T HANGING IN A MUSEUM GALLERY—IT’S ON THE WALL IN YOUR HOME. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

From the Mona Lisa and Girl with a Pearl Earring to American Gothic, the collective fascination with portrait art goes back far beyond even the most famous examples of the genre: back to prehistoric times, in fact, where crude renderings of faces in profile have been discovered by archaeologists in cave dwellings and in the tombs of Egyptian and Chinese royalty. Few mediums have had such staying power. So, what’s with the fascination with faces? It’s simple: Much like the best writing, portraits are a way to explore our humanity—something that highlights all the ways in which we are different and all the ways in which we are the same. So, it’s no surprise that the introspective art form has been increasingly making its way into our homes, with portraits often acting as the stars of busy gallery walls and standalone displays alike. Here, Luxe rounds up some of our favorite local and international artists that are keeping the ages-old tradition alive and fresh with new interpretations and thrilling techniques.


RADAR / ON DISPLAY

GABRIEL SCHAMA

FAMILY PORTRAITS Who: From his studio in Oakland, California, artist Gabriel Schama’s powerful profiles and portraits are a cut above—literally. All of his pieces are either carefully excised by hand with an X-Acto knife or expertly produced with the help of his in-house assistant, a laser cutter he’s named Elsie. What: Schama’s work runs the gamut, from reimagined images from newspaper articles and album covers where he’s replaced the faces with boldly hued paper-cut explosions to classic profiles executed in wood with inner workings comprised of Elsie’s precisely stacked layers (as shown in the section opener). Why we love him: There’s something meditative about Schama’s work, like a complex wood weaving or a dizzying mandala brought to life. It’s hard to look away. gabrielschama.com

KEHINDE WILEY

SHANTAVIA BEALE II, 2012 Who: No one breaks down boundaries and flips the narrative quite like Brooklyn-based artist Kehinde Wiley, whose classically inspired oil paintings are made modern thanks to their subjects. What: Highly stylized and realistically rendered portraits in rich palettes depicting black and brown men and women from all over the world in poses influenced by the works of the old masters. Why we love him: There’s so much ground the historical portrait-painting tradition has yet to cover, and Wiley’s work is helping to narrow the distance between the genre’s myopic view of the past and the incredible diversity of our everyday reality— while simultaneously celebrating it. kehindewiley.com; skny.com

CAYCE ZAVAGLIA

GARRETT, 2011 Who: Artist Cayce Zavaglia had spent her career working on photo-realistic oil portraits, but when she became pregnant 15 years ago and had to forgo using the toxic chemicals required of the practice, she switched gears: relying on nontraditional embroidery techniques to capture her subjects. What: Large-scale embroidered portraits that may as well have been plucked from the studios of the old masters. One of these complex pieces can take Zavaglia anywhere from six weeks to six months to produce. Why we love her: Zavaglia is able to capture the depth and personality of her subjects—all friends and members of her family—in their direct and unwavering glances; plus, the softness of the embroidery thread and wool she uses brings added warmth to each beautiful visage. caycezavaglia.com

SCHAMA , JORDA AND ZAVAGLIA PHOTOS: COURTESY ARTISTS . WILEY PHOTO: SHANTAVIA BEALE II, 2012, OIL ON CANVAS , 60 X 48 INCHES (152.4 X 121.9 COLLECTION OF ANA AND LENNY GRAVIER, COURTESY SEAN KELLY, NEW YORK © KEHINDE WILEY, PHOTO: JASON WYCHE.

OUKALY Who: Spanish painter Oriol Angrill Jordà has taken two of art’s most celebrated and oft-studied subjects— landscapes and the human form—and merged them together in his signature watercolor series, titled Blendscapes. The result? Portraits that break all the rules in the best way possible. What: Jordà’s work feels like a dream within a dream, with everything from steep mountain ranges to serene lakeside scenes depicted across the side of a face or a cheek, like a window into what his subjects are thinking. Why we love him: Because Jordà brings one of our favorite platitudes to life in his portraits: People contain multitudes. It’s a beautiful sentiment depicted in works that are both realistic and deeply imaginative. oriolangrill.com

RADAR / CULTURE

Walking in the shoes of some of the characters powering through traumatic, complicated lives in our favorite television shows may sound less than ideal—we’re looking at you, The Affair’s tragedystricken protagonists Noah and Alison—but living in their homes? That’s another story. One look at the aforementioned Noah’s effortlessly cool Brooklyn brownstone or Alison’s cozy beachfront retreat in Montauk can make even (spoiler alert) taking the blame for vehicular homicide seem a little more palatable. Catching a glimpse into the well-appointed Red Keep in Game of Thrones, too, can make it hard not to root for Cersei Lannister; surely, if she were so evil, she wouldn’t have such great decorating taste? As on-demand television becomes more of a staple of home entertainment, the remote’s role has gone far beyond pausing, playing and fastforwarding—it’s turning the small screen into a veritable Pinterest board full of décor ideas for everything from living and dining rooms to artist studios and, well, even the White House.

WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

It all comes as no shock to Steve Arnold, the production designer behind the uncannily realistic presidential-inspired sets on the award-winning House of Cards. “You would be completely amazed to know about all the emails we get from everywhere on the planet—from Australia, Europe, the United States,” he says. “They want to know where we sourced the chaise lounge in such and such episode, the fabric on the sofa in another episode. They’ll ask about the smallest little details.” So, is it just that people are spending more time in their homes and in front of the television, or has the entertainment industry itself become more keen to its audience’s design-leaning proclivities? It’s hard to tell. But for people like Arnold and set decorator Beauchamp Fontaine— who’s responsible for the easy, breezy coastal interiors on the set of Grace and Frankie, as well as blockbuster hits like The Revenant and Now You See Me—they’re still designing with clients in mind; they just happen to be fictional and on a crazy-tight deadline (sets are often

conceptualized and completed in as little as 6-10 weeks). This real-person approach is what gives the sets their soul and lived-in layers, and likely, what makes the spaces resonate with viewers. Lily Tomlin’s artist studio in Grace and Frankie, for example, was a real labor of love for Fontaine. “For Lily’s character, Frankie, the studio is the one place that is really and truly hers,” she says. “It became her refuge. So, it was important to me that we get it right.” To make it look real, then, Fontaine tapped a local ceramicist to come in before filming and work on the potter’s wheel— saving his half-thrown pots, slip and slurry, adding to the dialogue without saying a word. “What we’re doing is a different kind of storytelling,” Fontaine says. “Interiors can tell as much of a story as the plot sometimes. It’s been incredible to see viewers really catching on to that.” Above: A still of Lily Tomlin’s art studio from the set of Grace and Frankie, designed by Beauchamp Fontaine for the show’s premiere season on Netflix.

RADAR / ITINERARY

WRITTEN BY JESSE BRATTER

It’s almost time for the art world to descend upon Miami once again for the much-anticipated Art Basel Miami Beach fair—for artists and collectors everywhere to come in droves to South Florida for several jam-packed days of VIP previews, international brand appearances and auxiliary shows throughout the city’s metropolitan areas and artistic enclaves. Offering an oasis of design,

art and community in the midst of all the organized chaos will be Jessica Acosta-Rubio, whose creative agency Design Pub collaborates with designers and like-minded brands on both a local and global level to curate exhibitions and pop-ups. This year, she’ll join forces with Lululemon to host H[OM BASE]L at a residence on the Venetian Islands; the project will explore the seven chakras

through various activation stations with the help of tabletop brand Comunione, jewelry designer Joanne Stone, and other creatives. And while we’re sure to see Acosta-Rubio behind more events happening between December 1 and 4, she let us in on some of her other must-see spots for those who love art and design just as much as she does. atdesignpub.com

EAT “Egot,” an exhibit of furniture by Nun and Office GA, was previously presented by Design Pub and Giovanni Beltran. Damien Hirst's Gone but not Forgotten (above) is on view at Faena Hotel Miami Beach.

Soul Food: I’m a huge fan of Rene Gonzalez’s architectural work, and I love the indoor-outdoor Plant Food + Wine restaurant inside The Sacred Space Miami, a mixed-use facility he designed that focuses on wellness, education and community. From the restaurant to the outdoor area, this open yet private floor plan is so unique to Miami. It’s the perfect place to eat and drink while in a meeting or just occasionally with friends. The food and plating is absolutely gorgeous. thesacredspacemiami.com Feel Good: Paradigm Kitchen is a health-conscious restaurant concept in Miami Beach from the team at Jugofresh. I can’t take all the credit, but I loved helping them with some of their furniture selections from our favorite brand in Los Angeles, Bend Goods.

NOTABLE SOUTH FLORIDA-BASED CURATOR JESSICA ACOSTA-RUBIO DISHES ON CAN’T-MISS DESTINATIONS TO SHOP, DINE AND APPRECIATE DESIGN DURING ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH—AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHERE TO RELAX AND RECHARGE.


RADAR / ITINERARY Design Pub curates pop-up exhibitions like “#101ManMade” (shown here and center), a show that coincided with a previous Art Basel Miami Beach. At bottom is a look at the Plant Food + Wine restaurant at The Sacred Space Miami.

SHOP Plain and Simple: Good design should be accessible to everyone. And no one practices that philosophy more than the cotton T-shirt brand Neushop Miami, whose two main characteristics are function and quality. The simple yet meaningful ethos of Neushop is represented by the barebones quality of the historic downtown building in which it’s housed, and in the shop’s monthly design forums and events that are open to the public. neushop.com En Vogue: The Webster in South Beach is definitely my preferred place to shop. I love that they’ve preserved the look and feel of the Art Deco building, because the best part of the shopping experience is the contrast between the historic design and the new fashion trends they have inside. And the accessories selection there is on point: I’m a huge fan of Annelise Michelson jewelry; I adore the world of Olympia Le-Tan; and because we live in Miami, I always need to splurge on new sunglasses by Mykita. thewebster.us

EXPLORE Double Trouble: My favorite design duo in town is Jessica Martin and Deon Rubi, collectively known as Nun, who work out of Little Haiti. They’ve been part of our Design Pub exhibits for the past two years, with a focus on furniture design and objects, including collaborations with Jonathan Gonzalez of Office GA. They were also a part of the incredible show, Giovanni Beltran’s “Primitive Hut,” at Noguchi Breton in Miami earlier this year. deonrubi.com

Meet Market: I’m very excited about the Mexican designers who will be exhibiting in Miami during Comisaria Latina de Diseño, a design showcase of art, fashion and interiors by Latin American artisans in a bazaar-like setting. Check it out at the Royal Palm South Beach Miami hotel from December 1-4.

STAY Checking In: Faena Hotel Miami Beach is my new go-to spot to have fun among art and architecture. The design is just breathtaking, and the Faena Theater is like a dream. It’s so magical and whimsical that they call it a fantasyland, and they have a performance every weekend called C’est Rouge! that shouldn’t be missed. Every time I find myself at Faena, I always feel as if I’m inside of a movie. It’s like Wes Anderson meets Moulin Rouge. faena.com

Moore is More: The Moore Building houses a site-specific installation by Zaha Hadid that is definitely worth seeing. We’ll have a show there during the next big art and design invasion—Maison & Objet Americas in May—with lots of limited-edition works mainly by young talents from Miami and Latin America. bridgehouseevents.com

EXHIBIT PHOTOS: ERIKA BLANCO. PLANT FOOD

View Finder: I love walking around the Miami Design District and discovering new places. Alchemist has been one of my favorite finds. The fashion boutique has three locations, with this one focusing on fine jewelry. It’s again designed by Rene Gonzalez and has an unforgettable rose gold-mirrored façade, is surrounded by palm trees and lies diagonally to the Buckminster Fuller Fly’s Eye Dome sculpture. The whole area has changed tremendously—mounting exhibitions inside temporary spaces here over the last six years, I’ve seen it all. The Design District is the most ambitious project in Miami in terms of community building and outstanding design. I can’t wait for the opening of the new Institute of Contemporary Art, all of our summer rooftop parties and more restaurants to come. miamidesigndistrict.net

RADAR / BEHIND THE BRAND

FINE PRINT THE CREATIVE WUNDERKIND BEHIND NEW YORK’S WALLCOVERING UPSTART, VOUTSA, GEORGE VENSON USHERS IN A WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF DESIGN LOVERS WHO BELIEVE PATTERN MAKES PERFECT. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA / PORTRAIT BY CHRIS GLOAG

“No one can pronounce it,” says George Venson, with a laugh, in reference to the name of his devil-may-care design house, Voutsa—an abridged version of his father’s family’s pre-Ellis Island Greek surname. And while that might be mostly true (for the record, it’s | voot | - sä), it’s had no bearing whatsoever on the company’s rapid ascent. Venson’s bold, at times risqué, wallpapers almost instantly found their niche after Voutsa’s launch in 2013, and his devotees have hardly let phonetics get in the way of translating the brand’s whimsical prints into statementmaking backdrops for daring interiors. Voutsa’s painterly collections feature wild and fantastical illustrations—from giant watercolor lips and coral-grazing goldfish to elegant birds-of-paradise and Russian dancers in mid-waltz. They’re all fun and eye-catching, but if Voutsa’s nearly meteoric rise can be attributed to any one thing, it’s to Venson’s own sheer force of will: his aversion to trends and his selfprofessed interest in charting his own course. “I have no desire to make the typical, expected things,” he says. “I want everything I do to have a bit of a twist, something no one sees coming.” It seems obvious, then, that a year after his first wallpaper collection premiered to great success, the artist-turned-product designer was on to the next thing: a capsule fashion line—in collaboration with Paul Marlow, the couture mastermind behind the retired menswear collective Loden Dager—rendered from Voutsa’s most popular patterns, which he’s currently traveling to promote in a series of international pop-up shops, like his latest in London, at right. “When I first started working with Paul, I told him I wanted to create clothing that represented my ideal look—from head to toe,” Venson explains. “We did tunics and shirts and bandannas, focusing on well-made pieces with classic cuts that could fit different body types.” For Venson, though, it’s not just about outfitting a body or a room; it’s about capturing a lifestyle—regardless of if that life is being carried out in a New York City apartment or in the Oval Office (a name he drops when asked for his dream commission). “I have a wonderfully diverse base of people interested in the work I do at Voutsa,” he says. “Whether it’s one of my wallpapers getting selected for a high-end project by a big decorator or a printed scarf going home with someone in Wyoming, I love that each person can take away a piece of this fantasy world I’ve created.”

#INSTACRUSH

@cestesdesign

WHO: Carol Estes, a part-time interior designer and full-time artist, travels between her native San Diego and the mountain town of Idyllwild. WHAT: Estes’ feed gives us a peek into a life well-lived—whether it’s a curated vignette in her ranch-style home, a new addition to her impressive collection of European white linens, or an effortlessly composed flat lay of findings from her bountiful garden. WHY: In a steady scroll of color-laden snaps and looping Boomerang videos, Estes’ perfectly pared-down feed acts like a breath of fresh air. Her roomy, soft-toned still-life images read as a study in simplicity, which is then enhanced by earthy textures and natural lighting. IN HER WORDS: “My inspiration comes from an intense need to be surrounded by beauty. When I walk through my living room and a light strikes a leaf or water in a vase in just the right way, I’m instantly drawn to shoot it. This happens all throughout my day and my home.”

AUSTERE

When did you open? May 2014. We operated Austere in downtown Los Angeles until this past July, and are reopening a more specialized retail space in the area by the end of this year. Why the change? As we shift away from being a multibrand retail store to a design brand, we realized that we needed a more focused space. Describe the Austere concept. The idea was to create a place for agile and adaptive innovation—a space where designers and brands could test creative ideas by involving customers directly and quickly in the product creation. Tell us about your offerings. We are focused on a Scandinavian-inspired “fewer, better things” ideology— one that honors simplicity, form and function over unnecessary frills. We have collected time-enduring, leading design, furniture, lighting, tableware, fashion, beauty and tech, all under one brand. What makes Austere different? We’ve made a dent in the market by honoring great designers and great design. That’s what we are known for and that is what we will continue doing. Any exciting news? Our first European outpost is opening in Stockholm this fall. Plus, we’re really looking forward to the launch of the Austere collection. austere.co 106 / LUXESOURCE.COM

By early 2017, the ever-growing skyline of downtown Los Angeles will be quite a bit taller thanks to developer Korean Air’s latest mixeduse development: the Wilshire Grand Center. Located at the former site of the iconic Wilshire Grand Hotel, the 73-floor building will comprise a state-of-the-art hotel operated by the InterContinental Hotels Group, as well as restaurant, retail and office space. Upon entry to the building, visitors are invited to ascend to the sky lobby to experience unmatched views of the sparkling city below. Architecture firm AC Martin is spearheading the design, which will lead to the construction of a sculptural edifice crowned with a glowing glass pediment and spire. “The Wilshire Grand has stood as a downtown icon for more than half a century, and the new Wilshire Grand promises to continue that legacy for generations to come,” says architect Chris Martin. The soonto-be landmark will reach 1,100 feet, making it the tallest building west of the Mississippi—a legacy that it will honor by providing a peerless guest experience and rooftop dining. wilshiregrandcenter.com WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT

COLLABORATION CAPSULE X TEJIDO

Newcomer furniture company Capsule has partnered with artisan-focused textile and accessories brand Tejido on a dreamy limited edition collection of pillows and throws set to launch this November. Comprising only seven pieces, all handmade in Peru, the heavily textured, neutral assemblage draws inspiration from Tejido’s global and simplified aesthetic, as well as the traditional indigenous techniques used to create the pieces. The vibe is quintessential California-cool with artisan appeal: A contrasting striped cushion is playfully punctuated by fringe and a pillow woven from baby alpaca wool is made modern by all-over pattern. “We love Tejido’s emphasis on handmade quality as well as the brand’s organic and modern sensibilities,” says Capsule’s creative director, Tiffany Fong. “Capsule and Tejido both believe that a product’s unique story is what makes it special to customers.” capsulehome.com

THE INSIDERS KRISTAN CUNNINGHAM & SCOTT JARRELL

SHOPS + SHOWROOMS

Design lovers have another reason to celebrate this season as a bevy of oh-so-chic décor shops have recently opened. In West Hollywood’s Design District, Parisian retail institution and lifestyle brand L’Eclaireur (450 N. Robertson Blvd.) is bringing its French savoir faire to the United States, setting up shop in a 1960s French-style revival mansion, while Michael Aram (157 N. Robertson Blvd.) makes its West Coast debut five blocks away. At the everbuzzy Platform in Culver City, Tom Dixon (8850 Washington Blvd.) has teamed up with fashion brand Curve on an ultra-hip oasis to house his illuminated wares. In Venice, Le Magazyn (904 Pacific Ave.), below, is showcasing the best of Brazilian design in a part-gallery, part-boutique space. And in Newport Beach’s Lido Marina Village, Serena & Lily (3636 Newport Blvd.) is bringing its coastal flair to the seaside shopping mecca.

How is the design scene in L.A. evolving? Our city “with no center” has very quickly become the new center of the world. Everything is connected here—architects, designers and artists are now all in a dialogue of creation. Not only is our city a venue for conversations between all other cities, but the creatives here are multimodal people. For the art-lovers: Our favorite cultural havens are Museum as Retail Space, Wilding Cran Gallery, The Box Gallery, Maccarone, the SCI-Arc gallery, MOCA, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel and The Broad. We also love Boyle Heights—it’s where the very best galleries are moving in. We spend quite a bit of time there attending shows and going to parties. Architectural must-sees: Cleon Peterson’s mural at 7th Place. We used to live in the building adjacent to it and watched it go up. For inspiration, we also like to look at students’ work at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Go-to shops: We don’t know how we managed to get by before Hennessey + Ingalls arrived! It has the best art and architecture book selection in all the land. We also really like AltHouse for its enviable selection of small-label women’s brands and Silverlake Wine for its top-notch suggestions for a well-priced daily drinker or a spendy gift.

OPEN HOUSE

Kristan Cunningham and Scott Jarrell were early contributors to downtown Los Angeles’ art and design renaissance with the opening of their shop, Hammer and Spear, in 2013. The husband-and-wife duo set out to bring heirloom-quality vintage furnishings and décor to the community, but they quickly saw an opportunity to showcase the work of area designers and makers. Today, the brand occupies a 5,000-square-foot showroom that houses an interior design studio and a broad range of shoppable wares, carrying everything from De Jong & Co. case goods and Mad et Len candles to Mary Little’s fiber art. We chatted with the duo to get their take on what’s new and now in L.A.’s ever-changing scene. hammerandspear.com

If you live in Southern California, or have been there in the last eight months, chances are you’ve spent some time in Culver City. The formerly sleepy destination is a serious hot spot as of late, due in large part to the opening of the 220,000-square-foot shopping mecca Platform. “The design community has always had a large presence in the neighborhood,” says Abramson Teiger Architects’ Trevor Abramson, the mastermind behind the design of Platform. “Lately there has been an emergence of high-end fashion brands, top restaurants and progressive tech companies, which has allowed us to develop bold and forward-thinking architecture to house their products and ideas.” Of course he’s referring to the retail hub, which contains storefronts, as well as some offices, for such innovative brands as Sweetgreen and art galleries like Tappan Collective—all designed by the architect. The continued evolution and downright success of this venture is especially sweet for Abramson, who moved his firm to Culver City’s Hayden Tract neighborhood in 2000. “We have literally changed our surroundings, and we love to see other creatives making their mark as well,” says Abramson. Here, the architect shares with us his favorite spots to frequent in the city everyone is talking about. abramsonteiger.com

to avoid the usual line out the door. I love this Abramson Teiger-designed space and I regularly walk over there to eat outside. The authentic atmosphere of street taco culture inspired our design. Follow the tacos with ice cream from Van Leeuwen, a Brooklyn export. I recommend the ginger. 2 p.m. Stay within the Platform complex to check out the boutique shopping. This mixed-use district features great fashion and home stores. Be sure to check out The Shop, a merged concept store from the fashion boutique Curve. 3 p.m. Continue walking east through the Helms Bakery District to get your fill of its variety of furniture and art. 4 p.m. Stop in at some of the 30-plus art galleries in the Culver City Arts District. Visit Anat Ebgi, Blum & Poe, Bradford Stewart, China Art Objects Galleries, FP Contemporary and Robert Graham Studio.

5 p.m. Return west along Washington Boulevard walking toward downtown Culver City. Detour into the residential neighborhood at Fay Street, about three-quarters of a block north of Washington Boulevard, to see some of the cool smalllot division houses in the area. 5:30 p.m. Keep heading west to the Culver Hotel—a historic 1920s flatiron building that housed some of the actors from The Wizard of Oz. It’s a Culver City landmark. Sit outside on the patio for a drink and watch the people in the courtyards that surround the building.

STUDY in CONTRASTS

CAST AGAINST THE RAW BACKDROP OF A BROOKLYN WAREHOUSE, THE SEASON’S FINEST LIGHTING PIECES SHINE WITH REFINED BRILLIANCE.

PRODUCED BY KATE BERGERON / WRITTEN BY MIMI FAUCETT PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID PRINCE / STYLING BY ALEX BRANNIAN

KATIE KIME

ARTIST & DESIGNER KATIEKIME.COM

It’s rare that… The words “whimsical” and “architectural” can go together, but somehow, Rosie Li pulls it off. I’m a pretty big risk-taker in general. I tend to think that there are less “rules” in decorating than most others do. When I look at Bubbly I smile, because they really went for it, and to that I can relate. On trend: The piece is gold, layered and extravagant yet with a playful curvature. All of these elements are on trend, but especially the idea of pairing opposites: extravagance with function, playfulness with formality. When it comes to luxury design… It’s all in the details, but sometimes the details can often be painstaking and much easier to just forego. When a designer like Li has spent time on the finishing touches, you can easily spot the difference. The fixture against this backdrop… Is a marriage of two ideas: respect for the past and boldness for the future. It’s a delicate balance to strike, and here it’s done very well.


BAUBLE BAR

THE PIECE: Bubbly 08-Light Linear Chandelier THE DESIGNER: Rosie Li FIND IT: rosieli.com THE INSPIRATION: Inspired by soap bubbles and Newton’s law of universal gravitation, Brooklyn-based Rosie Li married maximalism with geometric elegance to create a stellar brass lighting system—a sculptural take on the traditional linear chandelier.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

ABOVE THE FOLD THE PIECE: Origami Table Lamp THE DESIGNER: François Champsaur for Pouenat FIND IT: hollyhunt.com THE INSPIRATION: Calling on the ancient art of origami, François Champsaur’s angular brass table lamp explores the infinite possibilities offered by metal, with the sharp, decorative lines of the material clearly on display.

DAVID MONTALBA

ARCHITECT MONTALBAARCHITECTS.COM

François Champsaur’s work shows… A strong, consistent support of extremely high-quality design and unique craftsmanship. The folded metal planes and the focus of the light on the material’s surface feel very architectural and intentional. It reminds me of both contemporary sculpture and some of our own work: It’s rooted in the past with its cast fabrication, but its form suggests a contemporary relationship and progress. On trend: This particular finish feels timeless, possibly vintage or repurposed. Lately, there has been a push toward recycled, conscious fashion, so in that respect, this piece feels in line with the current zeitgeist of design. When it comes to luxury design… A bespoke piece, be it for clothing or interiors, always feels like more of a privilege than whatever massproduced product it’s up against. Playing a role in crafting what you wear, or how you live, is the ultimate in luxury. In composition: The sculptural qualities of the lamp are very elegant, giving it a sense of formality. The polished continuity of the fixture against the rough brick background really highlights its simplicity and clean lines. A strong contrast is visually engaging; this opposition inspires dialogue.


CHRISTINA BRYANT TEXTILE MAVEN STFRANK.COM

Pelle’s use of form and material is… Enchanting. Their compositions come across as both deconstructed and refined—I love that apposition. I’m all about taking risks. This is an exceptionally whimsical sconce, and it has much more of an organic shape than I’m used to seeing from Pelle. In that way, I think it’s a risk well-taken. My line of work demonstrates… My love for—and belief in—the beauty of juxtaposing texture and shape. That same quality draws me to the Lure sconce. On trend: Lure’s mix of hard and soft, the sleek metallic with the organic cast flower, is a combination we’re seeing in fashion right now. That, along with the costume-like romance and femininity of the petals, makes this piece very much in style. The rustic, industrial backdrop… Contrasted against these delicate sconces accentuates their sensuality as well as their clean-lined hardware. The way the light is cast toward the flowers creates shadowy silhouettes that echo their shapes, which is really captivating.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS THE PIECE: Lure Sconce THE DESIGNER: Pelle FIND IT: pelledesigns.com THE INSPIRATION: Enlisted for its structural strength yet technical delicacy, the magnolia served as the muse for Pelle’s Lure sconce. A suspended LED light, held by a slender brass arc, illuminates the fixture’s hand-sculpted cast-paper petals.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

IN PLAIN SIGHT THE PIECE: Lumenariums in High and Low THE DESIGNER: John Pomp FIND IT: johnpomp.com THE INSPIRATION: Stirred by the idea of creating an environment for light to live, John Pomp captured the beauty of an illuminated cityscape contained within a pair of milky glass-crystal cloches.

RYAN KORBAN

INTERIOR DESIGNER RYANKORBAN.COM

I like the artisanal feel of John Pomp’s work. He is a true craftsman, which is something I am attracted to as a designer. On trend: In a world where design is often over-saturated and everything tends to look the same, I think Pomp’s Lumenariums feel original. I’m constantly searching for pieces that are authentic, and this hits that note. Silhouette is… Often the most important aspect of lighting, and the sophistication of this particular piece is really in its silhouette. When it comes to luxury design… People love great pieces but don’t want their environment to feel too decorated. People are eager for statement items, but are not looking for a polished, matching ensemble. Rather, they want to mix and match; it’s a fresher perspective. In composition: I love the juxtaposition of the lights and the backdrop. It is that perfect combination of something custom and refined with something super undone that sparks emotion. I am always inspired by the intersection of product and environment. Opposites attract. And that could not be truer than in design. This kind of contrast makes people feel—not just see. It evokes emotion that cannot be replicated.


GEO LOGIC THE PIECE: The Wrongski THE DESIGNER: Jean-Pascal Gauthier FIND IT: jeanpascalgauthier.com THE INSPIRATION: Here, a geometric mélange of acrylic, brass, mirror and glass keeps with the suspended and balanced mobile style of Jean-Pascal Gauthier’s portfolio, which is steadily influenced by the Bauhaus movement.

STEPHANIE VON WATZDORF CREATIVE DIRECTOR FIGUE.COM

Jean-Pascal Gauthier’s work reminds me of… The Russian Constructivism movement that started in 1913 by Vladimir Tatlin, along with sculptor Alexander Calder’s work—which I love. It resembles a mobile: I like the harmony of the shapes and the mix of the triangle with the big and small bulbs. I always look to interior design… For inspiration in my own work; both worlds complement each other. I look at proportions, colors, textures, fabrics and overall elegance. In terms of luxury design: For me, quality equates to luxury. Statement piece: Any piece that is unexpected and has an interesting balance and shape to it, like the Wrongski pendant, is a “statement piece” to me. The raw iron and textured background… Juxtaposed with the clean finished lines of this hanging sculptural light fixture is especially striking. I am always looking for the unexpected: Risk can create incredible beauty and harmony. Here, the fixture is set in a surrounding that is totally contrary to what one would assume. The vintage, rusty, antiqued background with the angular, clean metal and modern shape of the lighting fixture is an unexpected contrast.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

ROCK STEADY THE PIECE: Sender One Side Lamp THE DESIGNER: Christina Zamora FIND IT: brave-matter.com THE INSPIRATION: Christina Zamora's decision to employ waxed brass to pierce a piece of variegated salt crystal creates a statement-making lamp that ditches convention for something altogether more refreshing.

GEORGE AUGUSTO CREATIVE DIRECTOR STAUD.CLOTHING

Brave Matter’s pieces are… Overtly midcentury and, at times, lean toward 1960s Pop art. In this particular piece… I like that the beauty comes from only two elements: the brass stem and a salt crystal light fixture. Making such a simple piece is deceptively difficult. The mix of materials is… A perfect balance between feminine and masculine. Luxury design used to be… Primarily based on price, but I think that’s changed. Today, it’s about being special and the combination of high and low: the ability to fuse a wide range of elements and include a piece with some emotion or nostalgia. On trend: The midcentury revival exploded in the late ’90s and hasn’t let up since. This fixture fits right in with that aesthetic. In composition: The juxtaposition of the raw environment makes you further appreciate the total refinement of the light fixture. Such a contrast allows you to see certain aspects of each aesthetic with a clarity that would otherwise not be possible.

THE MUST-SEE EVENT IN HOME FURNISHINGS Celebrating 107 years, High Point Market is the world’s largest and most important home furnishings trade show. Each spring and fall, more than 75,000 home furnishings professionals come to High Point to experience the products, trends and innovations—and meet the people—that are moving home fashion forward. We spoke with three leading interior designers to hear what they were looking forward to seeing at the Spring 2017 High Point Market and capture just some of the energy and excitement that make Market Week the fashion week of home furnishings.


ADVERTISEMENT

Corey Damen Jenkins Corey Damen Jenkins & Associates, LLC “I’m excited to see some of the specific 2017 spring colors that were identified by the trend forecasters at Fashion Snoops—particularly the combination of Pantone 19-3921, Pantone 17-4911 and Pantone 15-309. Our firm is coincidentally building a home for one of our clients with these exact colors as the main palette of the first floor. Together they create a very fresh and vibrant color story, but it’s also sexy and sophisticated as well. I’m looking forward to pushing traditional boundaries with these hues. I also really appreciated what Jamie Drake had to say about how fashion and interior design are essentially in a symbiotic relationship. His statement, ‘Most of the rules can be broken if done with sophistication and style,’ should be printed on t-shirts and given out to clients.”

Kerrie Kelly Kerrie Kelly Design Lab “We are so inspired by the Old Havana and Cove trends that Fashion Snoops has forecast for the coming year. With our renewed access to the old-world elegance and excitement of Cuba and our constant desire to be near the coastline, these two color trends are paving the way for a much-anticipated shift in the design world. The Cove color trend speaks to us particularly because of our California roots. Every time we drive down the coast we are inspired by something new—waves breaking against the shore, a beachfront cafe or the laid-back style of our fellow Californians.”

Elissa Grayer Elissa Grayer Interior Design “I attend High Point Market to see and touch everything new in the industry. By being there twice a year I get to experience an incredible world of new products and absorb the talent and inspiration on display around me. I bring that enthusiasm back to my clients! Don’t forget to wear the most comfortable shoes and enjoy all the food and drink the showrooms provide.”

CLEVER DESIGN AND UNEXPECTED SOURCES OF INSPIRATION CONVERT THE HOME’S HARDEST-WORKING HUBS INTO GUEST-READY SPACES PRIMED FOR ENTERTAINING. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

Just like the best hostesses exude warmth and hospitality so, too, do standout spaces. A home that’s fit for entertaining should make handling a crowd look effortless, especially in its most hightraffic zones. Good flow, eye-catching finishes, high-performing appliances and, of course, comfort are fundamental factors in creating areas that invite crowds to linger. Whether it’s a kitchen built for sipping and socializing around a supersized island, or a powder room with enough pizzazz to make a lasting impression, your home’s busiest rooms should be ready to face the public at a moment’s notice. Here, a look at party-ready spaces and products that are as stylish as they are functional. 150 / LUXESOURCE.COM

RESTAURANT QUALITY SMITH HANES

The details-obsessed visionary behind the look of Atlanta’s hottest eateries, including The Optimist and Le Fat, is known for his warm, industrial aesthetic. For this handsome residential kitchen, designer Smith Hanes used reclaimed materials and earthy neutrals to create an atmosphere that feels both vintage and timeless. smithhanes.com

What can homeowners best learn from restaurant design? The most important thing is the lighting. The ideal plans incorporate multiple light sources on many surfaces, like under the open shelving and in the pantry. The goal is always to put people at ease and make them look and feel their best in their surroundings.

Definitely not for the clutter-prone, this showstopper pantry features custom-made steel-and-glass enclosures, playing off the materials used in the adjoining kitchen.

152 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Describe your signature “soft industrial” look. We use materials that are characteristic of the industrial era, such as metal, glass and brick, to create a variety of textures. Pairing them with lighter colors, like cream, blush, pale gray or even, in this case, wood tones, helps to create a softer, warming effect.

PHOTO: ANDREW THOMAS LEE. STYLING: THOM DRIVER.

Share your vision for the space. The kitchen is meant to function as a place where a large family can gather, so we did an open plan with enough seating for 10 to 12 people. The client had a photo of a wall of cabinets made from old doors and windows; that was the inspiration for the glass pantry.


THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

IN THE NAVY While a simmering pot is usually best kept out of sight from guests, you might want to make an exception for the new collaboration between venerable French cookware company Staub and Food 52. Sporting the on-trend combination of midnight blue with brass accents, the collection is a stylish addition to your stovetop repertoire. food52.com

In recent years, the wall space behind the stove has become the de rigueur place to make an artistic statement in the kitchen. Take the chevron backsplash from Nashville designer April Tomlin, for example, who created the Navajo-inspired design shown here out of MDF covered with fire-safe paint. “I was bored with traditionally used tile,” she says. Open shelves and a snowy white quartz countertop ensure all eyes are on her handiwork. apriltomlin.com

COOL RUNNINGS

DUTCH treat For this sophisticated kitchen, San Francisco-based designer Nicole Hollis found her muse in an unusual place: a Flemish still-life painting. A moody mix of materials, including steel-framed glass upper cabinets and a gray island topped with Belgian blue limestone, stand in stark contrast with white lower cabinets and a Calacatta Gold marble backsplash. Low-lighting creates ambience and intrigue—the perfect dinner party guests. nicolehollis.com 154 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Ask any chef or caterer: An oversize refrigerator is the unsung hero of effortless entertaining. And with a tray that slides out to accommodate commercial-size sheet pans, the latest built-in model from Blue Star is both workhorse and eye candy— available in 750 customizable colors, including this deep indigo. Its interior is just as attractive as its exterior, thanks to a sleek stainless-steel lining, which makes it not only goodlooking, but better at insulating cold air, as well. bluestarcooking.com

Smoky Rose wallpaper by House of Hackney sets a charming tone for this Studio McGee-designed powder room. A Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. sconce and Kohler Purist faucet break up the high-contrast black-and-white scheme with warm, brass accents.

Just because it’s a half bath doesn’t mean it can’t be full of style. Small in square footage but big in personality, powder rooms are the perfect forum to express your individuality and design philosophy—after all, you’ve got a captive audience. One way to make an impression? Let a unique wallpaper guide the overall concept, as designer Shea McGee did in this Salt Lake City powder room. “I fell in love with the vintage vibe of this rose print, which inspired the classic feel of the bath as well as the more masculine black-and-white palette,” she says.

NO STERILE GALLERY WALLS HERE: EXPLORE ART THAT BREATHES LIFE INTO THE ROOMS IT INHABITS. WRITTEN BY MONIQUE MCINTOSH

A “look-but-don’t-touch” approach to displaying artwork just wouldn’t do for this cozy Beverly Hills family room. Finding a happy marriage between the practical and dramatic, interior designer Estee Stanley curated this refreshing take on a gallery wall that’s far from affected. 1 / Common Ground: Bring your artworks down to human scale to encourage interaction by hanging them low or leaning them right on the floor in an overlapping collage. These intimate, ground-level portraits invite viewers to touch and explore. 2 / Family Matters: Make your gallery wall a true family affair by blending personal snapshots in with fine art photography, adding to the room’s affable appeal. 3 / Shadow Play: The trick to mixing personal photos with avant-garde images? Showcase everything in studio black and white to maintain a polished look. 4 / Frame of Mind: Keep your framing simple and stick to a palette of neutral tones. No-frill frames help translate these diverse pieces into a cohesive whole. THE DESIGN TEAM: Interior Design / Estee Stanley, Estee Stanley Design 162 / LUXESOURCE.COM

TREASURE TROVE Every avid traveler faces this age-old dilemma: what to do with all those carefully curated mementos and keepsakes from your adventures. Designer Tom Stringer carved away the perfect nook to showcase an eclectic collection of global curios for this sprawling Santa Barbara home. 1 / Pride of Place: Opt for a statement wall with handsome builtins to house your small-scale pieces; this hard-to-miss focal point is a favorable alternative to scattering handcrafts around the home, where they may be overlooked. 2 / Perfect Perch: Place smaller works on elevated stands to show off finer details, displaying those delicate carvings and painterly lines from every angle. 3 / Relaxed Fit: While your collection may be museumquality, your room doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be: Ditch the cool, gallery look for a cozy down-home aesthetic, so you can enjoy your art in style and comfort. Here, a plush A. Rudin sofa is paired with soft Christian Liaigre lounge chairs and a rustic chandelier for a lived-in look. 4 / Cross-Genre: Be fearless in mixing collectibles from different regions. Contrasting artisanal traditions, from basketry to beading, adds rich textural interest. THE DESIGN TEAM:

GRAND TOUR A few select antiques add a worldly touch to this stately Newport Beach home, where classic Georgian architecture—inspired by the Colonial style of shingled, East Coast houses—shines through in this dramatic foyer designed by Melinda Grubbs. 1 / Be Fearless: Don’t be intimidated by grand architectural features in a formal entryway. Every space is a new and wonderful opportunity to showcase your collection, especially when it’s totally unexpected. 2 / A Light Hand: Then again, a little bit does go a long way. Seen here, smaller pieces add the perfect accent without overwhelming the space’s elegant architectural bones, from the paneled walls to the intricate parquet floor. 3 / Vintage Blend: Add a bit of variety even when working on a modest scale, like pairing a painting with figurines and porcelain. 4 / Match Point: Your furniture can be art, too, with sinuous silhouettes that feel inherently sculptural. This curvaceous, periodinspired bench, for example, proves truly gallery-worthy. THE DESIGN TEAM:

Not all gatherings require formal attire and canapes; sometimes, the most memorable evenings unfurl over a raucous game of Scrabble with friends. This sunny spot by Dallas-based Collins Interiors was conceived as a casual place to entertain and play board games. And since every festivity-filled night has a morning after, the area doubles as a breakfast nook, where the upholstered barrel chairs offer a comfortable perch to sip coffee and ease into the day. collins-interiors.com

Select foliage with interesting movement and choose an unexpected vessel. Use flower specimens in a range of shapes, textures and colors: Building a palette that includes some darker moments helps create drama. Consider the existing architecture and dĂŠcor of the space that your arrangement will inhabit. The container, flower selections and arrangement size should always complement the interiors.

Good riddance to the days when the kitchen remained hidden from guests. Today, it’s more common for cookspaces to feature dazzling finishes meant for prime time, as in this downtown NYC loft designed by Jenny Wolf. With old-world herringbone wood floors, dark gray-stained cabinetry and open shelving, the effect is equal parts rustic and industrial. A generous island provides plenty of surface area for guests to congregate and graze. The shining star of the space, however, is the backsplash. “I love an antique mirror wall, and I thought it would be a great way to reflect some of the light from the three large casement windows on the opposite wall,” she says. “Not only does it make a beautiful backsplash, but it’s also surprisingly easy to clean.” jennywolfinteriors.com

Sideboards are often perfunctory pieces meant to quietly sit, well, on the sidelines. Not so for this stunner from Thatcher and Shannon Davis, the husband-and-wife duo behind design company Selamat. Inspired by pioneering Australian designer Florence Broadhurst’s Pyramids fabric, this hand-carved wood credenza is the perfect combination of Italian 1970s Brutalist geometry and Hollywood Regency glamour. selamatdesigns.com

“Formal, but never fussy” could be the motto for this elegant dining room by Santa Monica, California-based interior designer Jeffrey Alan Marks. “I like to put my own spin on a room this traditional to keep it from feeling too stuffy,” he says. While the detail-rich crown molding was already in place, Marks added wainscot and lacquered the walls deep blue to ground the space, which seamlessly blends old and new. A contemporary light fixture from David Weeks, an abstract screenprint by James Nares and a jewel-toned geometric rug add just the right amount of edge, and go a long way in creating this lush and layered look. jam-design.com

An overnight guest should feel completely at home and pampered at the same time. To that end, designer Blue Carreon follows a simple philosophy: “I like to put as much thought into guest bedrooms as I do for my own room,” he says. One look at his bedroom in Manila, and you can see why this is a winning approach. Dark gray paneled walls create a cocoon-like effect that’s ideal for slumber, while fresh flowers, a water carafe and plenty of reading material make great bedside companions.

As Ron Safran, owner of the Los Angeles showroom, explains it, “A band of passionate entrepreneurs and furniture craftsmen took the first steps on a long journey. We may live in a different world than the one occupied by our founders, but one thing remains the same: We are furniture makers whose sole focus is on designing and building the world’s finest outdoor furniture.” Today, the flagship showroom, based in the West Hollywood Design District, serves homeowners and design trade professionals throughout Southern California. With styles ranging from midcentury to Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean, the Southern California desert area offers an enticing challenge to Safran and his team: complement the aesthetic beauty of the region while providing comfort that reflects the California lifestyle. “We attempt to integrate the outdoor living room, a quintessentially California concept, with the interior of the home,” he says. “We always factor in the lifestyle and entertainment value.” Safran notes the true fervor with which everyone, from the timber technician to the CEO, approaches the craft. “Just like the oil in our teak, a passion for excellence runs through Gloster,” he says. “Each member of our team takes pride in their contribution to producing the world’s finest furniture.”

Asked to describe his ideal Saturday from start to finish, Shepardson says, “It would start with an early morning hike in the local foothills while enjoying the panoramic valley views and purple hues of the surrounding mountains. Then we could squeeze in a midday round of golf, followed by a cold beer and a dip in the pool.

Of her firm’s location, Jackie points to a consciousness of the impact her work has on the surrounding environment. “Many of us think of climate change as one of the most significant events that will continue to occur,” she explains. “Southern California is forever getting warmer, with less water to go around and support our ecosystem. As a lighting designer and manufacturer, we see the need to use lighting that both saves energy and is less expensive to operate.” A combination of high-quality materials and stunning design has brought Lantern Masters to the forefront of its field both locally and nationally. Sharyn explains how each fixture’s design impacts the indoor and outdoor landscape. “Lantern Masters lighting complements both interior and exterior facades, adding detail, aesthetic pride, a sense of security and serene, positive energy,” she says. “Through its decorative and functional impact, the perfect fixture will create the desired atmosphere, whether cool or warm, subtle or highlighting.”

INTERIOR DESIGN / RON WOODSON AND JAIME RUMMERFIELD, WOODSON & RUMMERFIELDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HOUSE OF DESIGN


202 / LUXESOURCE.COM


Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield appointed the living room of a high-rise condominium in Los Angeles with a custom linen-upholstered sofa, a pair of leather-and-metal armchairs with buckle details and a brass-andglass rectangular table by Worlds Away from Bassman Blaine.

L

os Angeles is nothing if not complex. Amid a landscape of ocean and mountains, there’s a famed entertainment industry, plus a thriving art scene, iconic architecture and a vibrant history of progress and individuality. So it makes perfect sense that the work of Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield—the dynamic design team who have lived and worked in Los Angeles for more than a dozen years— is as richly layered as the city that surrounds them. “Layers give an interior life,” Woodson says. “Without them, spaces fall flat.” Woodson and Rummerfield’s recent design for a residence in a Century City high-rise is no exception. “It’s an intricate composition,” Rummerfield says, “a thoughtful and well-edited balance of color, pattern, form and texture.” The personality of Woodson and Rummerfield’s client— entertainment entrepreneur Amir Ahdoot—is as balanced as the design he commissioned them to create. “Amir collects fine art and likes fashion,” Rummerfield says. “He’s in Yves Saint Laurent almost every day. But it was important to him that his condo be incredibly comfortable, too. Stylish doesn’t have to be stuffy or rigid. People in Los Angeles want effortlessness.” The residence—in a coveted skyscraper with cinematic views and impressive amenities—offered Amir the lifestyle he was looking for. “It’s the best of everything,” the owner says. “It’s a beautiful building that gives the feeling of home.” Amir chose the aesthetic of Woodson and Rummerfield for practically the same reason. “Their designs are just so well put together,” he explains. “They’re elegant but relaxed. That mix is highly attractive.” One of the first things the homeowner asked for was a restrained palette. “We absolutely love color; it’s a major force of inspiration for us,” Rummerfield says. “But Amir established early on that he wanted something more neutral.”


In the living room, Woodson and Rummerfield punctuated the custom sofa with a selection of pillows wrapped in fabrics from South America that showcase graphic details. The twin brassand-glass coffee tables contribute a glamorous touch. The custom draperies are linen.

Woodson and Rummerfield outfitted the kitchen with black-and-gold marble from Royal Stone, using the material for the countertops and applying it to the backsplash. Wenge-wood bar chairs pull up to the island, which is lit by Tom Dixon-designed hammered-metal pendants from Twentieth.


Sticking to a muted palette, the designers incorporated color via artwork. An abstract painting from the 1960s with a metal frame hangs above a vintage brass-and-glass bar cart in the dining room. The marbleand-brass lamp continues the fashionably understated scheme.

The designers responded by selecting a sober palette of mostly creams, browns, grays and dark blues that evokes Amir’s penchant for understated style. And in keeping with their philosophy of using layers to lend interest, they added vibrant hues and prints in small doses. In the living area, a custom 12-by-12-foot sofa is upholstered with ivory linen, and the windows are dressed with more billowing creamcolored linen. “The botanical print and an antique Aubusson rug in reddish brown and cream, along with the primary colors and geometric patterns of vintage pillow fabrics from South America, have heritage and provenance and add boldness,” Rummerfield says. In the guest room—the single

exception to the rule of small doses—the designers covered the walls with cobalt-blue-and-white wallcovering from Designers Guild that looks like intricately patterned tile. Much of the art that hangs throughout the residence is work that Woodson and Rummerfield helped Amir select. “He started collecting fairly recently and likes modern and contemporary pieces,” Rummerfield says. “That’s where more edge and color comes in.” Paintings by Gregory Siff in the dining area defined by strokes of brilliant color become the focal points for the space. “Los Angeles has a leading edge in art right now,” Rummerfield says. “The works by Siff and street art in general are very influential. LUXESOURCE.COM / 207


A guest room gave Woodson and Rummerfield a chance to display their passion for color. They used a Designers Guild wallcovering that resembles blue-and-white tile designs and scattered pillows in a variety of textures and patterns. Gauzy linen draperies—a detail consistent through the home— frame the windows.

“IT’S AN INTRICATE COMPOSITION. A THOUGHTFUL AND WELLEDITED BALANCE OF COLOR, PATTERN, FORM AND TEXTURE.” –JAIME RUMMERFIELD

Offering sweeping views of the city, an intimate terrace holding an iron table and klismos chairs, both from RH, is the perfect spot for alfresco dining. The planters and plantings offering touches of green are from Inner Gardens.

It’s a special time where if you can snatch up pieces like this, you should. Amir commissioned these paintings because he’d worked with Siff on a project. They’re among his most recent acquisitions and his most prized.” Elsewhere, a massive color photograph of a city street by Kjeld Gogosha-Clark hangs in the corner of the guest room, while a Cubist-style abstract hangs in the master bedroom. Like the art, the furnishings are a combination of modern and contemporary styles accented by traditional pieces, all incorporating a variety of forms and textures. “A mix creates timelessness and gives a space soul,” Woodson says. The designers outfitted the kitchen with black-and-gold marble counters and a backsplash, midcentury-style wenge-wood bar chairs and graphic Tom Dixon-designed metal pendants. In the living area, rectilinear brass-and-glass coffee tables and a pair of open metal-frame armchairs with buckle details maintain a feeling of lightness while adding a glam note. Woodson and Rummerfield placed two generously proportioned tufted roll-back slipper chairs at the foot of the bed in the master bedroom, where wave-front chests with burl-wood drawers flank a tailored linen-upholstered bed with nailhead trim. “The master bedroom was meant to be chic, comfortable and masculine all at the same time,” Woodson says. “More and more, Los Angeles is becoming a vertical city,” Rummerfield says. “This project breaks the boundaries of what one might think living in a condo is like. It has a grand feeling and sweeping views from the ocean to downtown and to Beverly Hills and the Griffith Observatory.” It’s a place where the homeowner can appreciate different vistas of the landscape, but also one where Woodson and Rummerfield’s layering of elements creates an interior scene of constant discovery. “I sit in my home and look at different things around the rooms, and each individual item brings me happiness or gives me new thoughts and feelings,” Amir says. “It’s a never-ending story.” LUXESOURCE.COM / 211


Above: The designers kept the master bathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing gold-and-white stone and accented the space with thoughtful details. By the tub, an antique Chippendalestyle armchair and a small drum table counter the sleek surfaces and create an inviting vignette. Left: From Century Furniture, tufted slipper chairs, burl-wood side tables and a bed sporting nailhead trim and upholstered in linen by Carleton V make a stylish statement in the master bedroom. The octagonal mirror above the bed is from Bassman Blaine.

For a residence in the mountains above Santa Barbara, designer Sarah Walker chose six walnut slabs for the entry door fabricated by Architectural Millwork. Architects Linda Taalman and Alan Koch combined prefabricated aluminum components by Bosch Rexroth with glass and cast-in-place concrete for the structure. Builder Paul Franz choreographed the complex installation of the pieces.

ust a short drive up a steep winding road from Santa Barbara’s soft sandy beaches and swaying palm trees lies a 32-acre site so rugged that it’s hard to believe the two worlds are only 25 minutes apart. Emerging from the limestone outcroppings is a glass, aluminum and concrete house so elegant in its simplicity that it barely disturbs the natural environment. The job of marrying the home’s interiors with the dramatic setting fell to designer Sarah Walker, who immediately recognized the challenge before her. “Having a strong connection with the outdoors was critical,” she says. “The site is very dramatic and rugged, rather than nurturing. I knew the house had to have a conversation with the landscape, or it would forever remain disconnected.” It wasn’t just the jaw-dropping surroundings or the ocean views that inspired the clients to acquire the property. No, simply put, the husband is an engineer and astronomer who thought it was the perfect setting for an observatory.

“We bought the property because it’s above the marine layer,” says the wife. The couple, in fact, also own a beach house at the bottom of the road. “Where we sleep is often dependent on the phases of the moon,” she says. When there is little or no moon, they stay at the mountain home for optimal stargazing. Astronomical considerations aside, the couple envisioned a home at peace with its surroundings. Accordingly, Walker chose a door fashioned from six slabs of walnut and a liveedge walnut-slab bench—both look as if they were just brought in from the forest—to make the entry’s opening statement. “These elements have a strong dialogue with nature,” says the designer. To reinforce the natural connection, she selected earth-colored porcelain for the floors in most of the living spaces, plus pebble tiles in the master bathroom, alluding to the outdoors. Along with the couple’s desire to have an ongoing tête-a-tête with nature came a ranch-meets-Manhattan


In the outdoor living and dining space, two Janus et Cie lounge chairs flank a teak root table from DAO to create a striking vignette that suggests the interplay between the polished and organic elements in the home. Sheltered from the elements, the area is intended to function year-round.

design directive to be peppered with ryokan (Japanese inn) references. In response, Walker created clean, uncluttered interiors intended to balance organic materials and modern elements. So, in the living room, contemporary wool chenille sofas topped with Kuba cloth pillows trend warm. “Leather would have been too slick. The use of texture and pattern takes the edge off,” Walker says. In deference to the ryokan request, the slatted-wood coffee table, interjections of red in the artwork and dining room sideboard, a sliding walnut screen in the master bathroom, and a master dressing room tansu custom-designed by Walker subtly evoke the Far East. Before there were fabrics and furnishings, however, there was a structure to contain it all. Early in the process, the owners were smitten with the refined design of the IT House. The brainchild of architects Linda Taalman and Alan Koch, formerly of Taalman Koch Architecture, the structure uses prefabricated components that have minimal impact on the Earth. “We liked the extruded-aluminum framing system, the glass walls and the environmentally conscious aspects,” says the wife. “But we wanted to modify the design to include thick concrete walls.” The architectural

team embraced the idea as the perfect remedy to ground the building to the site, connecting it physically and visually to the limestone features around the property. “We colored the walls to match the local cliffs, so they look like they are pieces carved out from the landscape,” says Koch. Compared with the relative ease of assembling the glass and aluminum pieces, though, the concrete additions tested builder Paul Franz. “Because the concrete was integral to the house, the openings for lighting, mechanical cases and niches for pocket doors all had to be determined ahead of time,” he explains. “Each monolith was a project onto itself, and getting the timing of the installation right was challenging.” Countering the massive walls are long spans of galvanized steel commonly used in airport roofing that make up the ceilings. “It is very reflective and changes colors depending on the time of day,” says Taalman, noting they added Cor-Ten steel on the fascia and doors. “In contrast to the glass and aluminum, the imperfections of the concrete and the rusted steel speak to the natural world because of their abilities to change through aging and the patina that develops over time.”

Placed in the south corner of the house, the master bedroom is a quiet retreat. DAO supplied the live-edge Japanese sycamore headboard and made the sycamore bedside table bases, which were designed by Walker. The hemp rug is from Lawrence of La Brea; the artwork by Aaron Morse is from Acme.

Landscape designer Kathleen Ferguson extended the Cor-Ten material into the landscape, using it for the distinctive water features dotting the grounds. She also persuaded the homeowners to install a Cor-Ten steel walkway. “It was definitely a bold experiment, but the husband had the idea to cast it into concrete slabs to mitigate the heat,” she says, noting that the slabs dissipate the heat during the day and radiate heat at night. The steel enhances the transition between the architecture and the landscape, as does the gravel on the perimeter walkways, which gives the impression of the mountain eroding down the site. The result is a house so seamlessly integrated with its surroundings that the hillside feels like just another design feature and no one questions the boulders that form part of the entry sequence. As Walker points out, “There’s a perfect interplay between the indoor and outdoor worlds, and an ongoing sense of not knowing where one stops and the other begins.”

Walker chose pebble-like tile from Walker Zanger to bring a Zen feeling to the master bathroom. Artistic Concepts fashioned the custom vanity. The sink is Kohler; the Lulu faucet by Dornbracht is from Ferguson.


For the covered living and dining area, Walker opted for furnishings that were stylish and did not read as outdoor pieces. However, her choices, such as a dining table by West Barnstable Tables and the Janus et Cie dining chairs and sofa, strike a more rustic tone. Landscape designer Kathleen Ferguson incorporated several water features into her concept for the property. Paysage executed Fergusonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision, installing the landscape.

espite the ongoing conversations around work-life balance, it’s not an issue for Sean Dougall and Andrew Paulson, the design— and life—partners professionally known as Dougall Paulson. “I don’t think we’ve ever really thought about what we do as capital ‘W’ work,” says Dougall. “It feeds our souls to collaborate together every day and create in our studio. It’s always energizing. We don’t really have any separation in that sense.” The couple, who live and work out of a former lightbulb factory in Watts, have turned their individual passions into a genre-spanning mash-up of a business—their multidimensional collections showcase art, furniture, lighting, textiles and more. Dougall has a background in ceramics and set and production design, while Paulson is a self-taught fiber artist and weaver (not to mention, one-time literary editor and agent). Today, they’re applying their varied training and shared aesthetics to disciplines ranging from design (their new collection of fine art, furnishings and objects, Ocean of Emptiness,

which draws inspiration from the sea, will launch in early 2017) to product development and brand identity. Nothing—from custom tatami mats created for an upcoming collaboration with perfumer Régime des Fleurs to the creation of a public space—is beyond the scope of their imagination. Says Dougall, “When Andy and I got together, our talents just kind of whirlwinded in a way that allowed us to start fantasizing together.” Soon, diners will be able to experience a Dougall Paulson-designed interior, the couple’s first foray into public space design, when Giulia opens this winter. “The restaurant owners are visionaries, and they’ve given us carte blanche to really define the space,” says Dougall. As with all of their work, their visual choices are not mere decoration, but the result of rigorous conceptual conversations. “The abstract idea behind the space is upward momentum. From the moment you step into the restaurant, the feeling we’re trying to evoke is one of elation and upliftedness,” he says. Encompassing two floors, the restaurant space has given them plenty of opportunity to create a dynamic vision. Dougall

is sculpting the mezzanine bar and reception desk in situ, and together they’re designing and making the furniture, lighting and art, in addition to crafting the eatery’s graphic identity. Their commitment to storytelling may be what makes their work so singular. Paulson’s academic background, which includes a teaching stint at New York University and time in a French-literature Ph.D. program, have made it second nature for him to process their output through lenses both critical and narrative. Asserts Paulson: “A table is just a table unless there’s some narrative context behind it. We want our pieces to hopefully shake the air a little because they have a sort of storytelling behind them.” Their philosophy is evident in their challengingly gorgeous Ocean of Emptiness pieces, rendered in bronze, nickel and porcelain. The collection considers emptiness, as not a negative space, but as a form—“A virtual reservoir of possibilities,” says Dougall—and pays special attention to how the pieces play with light, using materials that both reflect and absorb it. That all of their pursuits come together in their sky-lighted, window-filled work space feels like kismet. “It’s super dreamy,” admits Paulson. “We have the early morning light and by evening when it transitions to sunset, it’s just beautiful.” Expectedly, for two partners who are so in sync in every way, Dougall shares his sentiment. “You know, it’s funny because we are in a lightbulb factory and our work is really about light and how it interacts with the world around us,” he says wistfully. “I think there’s a bit of romance to it all.”

INTERIOR DESIGN / KELLY HINCHMAN, STUDIO H DESIGN GROUP


B

efore a mutual friend introduced Wanda Aurich to designer Kelly Hinchman, Wanda had already chosen most of the tile and stone for the new house in Coronado she was designing with her husband, Scott. It was the fourth home the couple had built together and this time around, Wanda knew she wanted a designer to take the interiors to a higher level than they had in their previous homes, envisioning a clean, sleek residence that reflected a feeling of ease and comfort. Wanda and Hinchman connected immediately, and the designer was off and running, using Wanda’s selections as the foundation for the rest of the design—starting with the unusual porcelain tile backsplash in the kitchen. “Once I saw that, I thought, ‘Okay, I know where I can take this,’” the designer recalls. Thus was born a “metal story,” which weaves gunmetal, brass and copper tones in varying degrees throughout the house. The theme begins at the entry, where drum-form

ceiling lights, with shades in differing metals, hang both inside and outside the massive pivoting steel front door. Copper-leaf wallcovering embellishes the ceiling recess in the foyer and dining area (a similar material makes an appearance on the custom platform bed in the master suite). Brass pendants outline the bar that runs parallel to the dining room table, while gunmetal shelves that Scott designed hang behind the bar counter. Nowhere is the story more pronounced than in the moody kitchen, filled with deep gray lacquer and black granite. There, Hinchman designed a cage-like brass light fixture to go over the island, which shines against the darkhued backsplash. “I wanted to build more mass above to balance off the heavy colors,” she says. But Hinchman explains that it’s not all bling. “We tried to balance the high-gloss lacquer panels with leathered-finish granite countertops and reclaimed wood,” she says, noting the ash-toned wood ceiling over the adjacent breakfast nook.


Opposite: Designer Kelly Hinchman imbued a Coronado home with metallic accents, including in the linen-and-metallic fabric by Sahco dressing the windows by the living area seating group. The swivel chairs, in Nobilis velvet from Kneedler-Fauchère, and Oly table are from Designers Resource Collection; they all rest on a Loloi carpet. Artwork by Ann Wilson Bates adds interest to the space. Below: The three flat-screens in the living area are integrated with the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crestron automation system, which was installed by Precision Tech Connect. Hinchman conceived the sectional, as well as the lacquered coffee table with a nested ottoman, and upholstered it in Kravet velvet. Near the Rene Cazares lounge chair is a Christian Liaigre side table.

The breakfast table by Stone Yard is surrounded by McGuire chairs and illuminated from above by Arteriors pendant lights.

As for the upholstery, Hinchman always starts with a “pile”—an assortment of fabrics, textures and finishes that evolves and grows. The Aurichs’ pile included shades of eggplant, taupe and gray, plus hides and metallics—and Texas Longhorn orange. “I went to UT,” Wanda says, referring to The University of Texas at Austin. “Kelly knew from the get-go that I liked orange.” Thus, the velvet dining chairs carry the school’s signature rust-orange hue, as does the felt-and-faux python vinyl on the poker table that Hinchman designed for Scott’s weekly games. “That is a very Texas poker table,” the designer notes. The reclaimed-wood accents on all three levels are another nod to the Aurichs’ native Texas, as they were inspired by similar details in their friends’ Houston home. Scott’s desires for the interiors focused on smart-house technology, and he worked with Ryan Aguilar at Precision Tech Connect to automate every function—lights, audio/video, temperature, security, pool and outdoor water

features—and make them operable from an iPad. Technology and design intersect in areas such as the bar, where light shines through the thick onyx countertops. “The lighting is a key ingredient to make everything cohesive and balanced,” Hinchman says. The glowing onyx is answered from above with adjustable brass-cylinder fixtures. “Generic lights would make the scale fall flat,” she adds. The designer’s attention to light plays to tremendous effect in the master suite, where delicate orbs glow above the bedside tables, a giant mass of “bubbles” crowns the tub, and smoky fragments cover a chandelier in Wanda’s dressing room. “I spent a lot of time on the lighting, making sure each piece was unique,” Hinchman observes. Ironically, the home’s contemporary architecture and interiors were never intended for the property. The original house plans, purchased with the land, called for a Craftsman-style design that’s more common on the island, but the Aurichs asked the architect of the original plans,

Gibson Lighting executed Hinchman’s design for a brass light fixture—the kitchen’s focal point. Apparatus sconces light the backsplash covered in Solistone tiles.

Allen Di Donato at Di Donato Associates, to modify them in favor of the couple’s modern aesthetic. “Contemporary’s not the market-driven style, but for us it’s great, because it can open up so easily,” says Scott, a longtime real estate broker. He noted that his recent 60th birthday party had more than 100 people flowing in and out with ease thanks to custom bi-fold glass doors that make the walls disappear between the living spaces and the pool terrace. Hinchman was on the same stylistic page, designing sleek furnishings that make entertaining and circulation easy, such as the great room sectional. An ingenious piece of seating, one side of the sectional is backless and open to the adjacent conversation area’s chic, swiveling chairs, while the other section features seating on both the front and back. “The Aurichs are big entertainers—fit, healthy, super stylish,” Hinchman says, explaining that she covered the furnishings in rich fabrics to reflect that sophistication. “I wanted to give them a sexier approach to the textures.” For her part, Wanda was thrilled with the collaboration. “She understood what we were trying to do,” she says. “The fact that we got along so well and we have such similar tastes— I couldn’t tell you who was the captain.”

AS K T HE EXPE RT How would you describe your clientele? The line between designer and client has been blurred a bit, because there is so much access to design and style information. Our clients are at the forefront of this by being well-educated and sophisticated enough to collaborate in a meaningful way with an architect or designer. More engagement and personal investment in the project by all parties bodes well for the success of the project. What is your creative process? What is your favorite part of it? Sometimes a solution emanates from experience, and sometimes the process is more like a shotgun approach. I like being unafraid to try different choices until there is an organic solution that feels true. What is your favorite style to work on and why? I appreciate any style that has been well-executed, but I grew up in a succession of midcentury modern homes, so I probably lean a little in that direction.

MARK DREXLER + ASSOCIATES From a luxurious enclave nestled in the Hollywood Hills to a sprawling Bel Air mansion, Mark Drexler + Associates has built a portfolio showcasing some of the most stunning home building and remodeling projects in the Los Angeles area. While the scope of projects the firm has completed is indicative of a large-scale firm, president Mark Drexler has ensured that his namesake company maintains the intimacy of a boutique firm. “We sought to be more of a boutique, as opposed to a mega organization,” Drexler explains. “I felt we could fill a niche in the ultra high-end residential market, and though we have built from the ground up and completed makeover remodels, our projects tend to be very fine remodels and additions.” For Drexler, the firm is a culmination of his lifelong passions. “Art, architecture, design and building have been a part of my life ever since I can remember because they were also an important part of my parents’ life, and later my architectural studies,” he says. The firm is committed to providing the highest quality products and completing projects on time and on budget, but exemplary customer service is always a top priority. “Ourw key influences are always the clients and designers with whom we work. It is imperative that we are engaged in their vision,” Drexler says. “We want our work to be recognizable by the quality of craftsmanship, but there is no better measure of success than when our clients refer us and call us back for subsequent projects.”

MALIBU MARKET AND DESIGN Epitomizing the cool and casual, yet highly sophisticated Malibu lifestyle, the Malibu Market and Design showroom itself is as unique and refined as the carefully curated selection of furnishings, lighting and accessories found within it. Nestled on two acres of terraced land overlooking the ocean, the showroom offers an extraordinary selection that includes such items as metal fire pits, iron sculptures, teak tables, kitchen and bath cabinetry, wood flooring, pots, planters, Buddha carvings, Indonesian sofas and Italian upholstery among many others. “The philosophy behind our company is simply to bring new ideas and inspiration to design. We really spend a lot of time looking for new ideas and product,” says president Eytan Levin, whose combined design industry expertise and real estate experience has contributed to the success of the firm. “I draw most of my inspiration from traveling and always researching new ideas. My favorite part is the different people I come in contact with who inspire what we do.” Established in 2006, the firm has grown to become one of the most sought-after destinations for innovative products and design, but Malibu Market and Design is also known for its exceptional customer service. “We strive to create an experience and bonding between the client and their home throughout the project,” explains Levin. “A successful project is one that seems to flow with great synergy between the team and the client.”

contact

I was referred to Tony by a respected interior designer. Tony was extremely easy to work with, responded to all of my communications almost immediately and always made me feel like I was his most important client. When we first met to discuss my project it was obvious that Tony was experienced in the interior design and architecture worlds. He is an excellent listener and understood how I wanted to present my company and he delivered with flying colors. The website he created for me is exactly what I wanted and I highly recommend Tony’s services.
