EDITOR’S LETTER

This issue is largely dedicated to homegrown design and to the independent makers and companies who are dialing into the made-in-America movement. To be sure, we live in a time where there are no clear-cut guidelines in design (perhaps there never were). Thanks to globalization, social media and the flood of visuals that pass our eyes daily, the sartorial choices we make for our homes are broad and vast, as they should be. Yet there is no denying the underlying current of old-school craftsmanship permeating the landscape. Call it “Americana Chic.” Stamp it “Made in America.” Today, homeowners are embracing all things artisanal, authentic and local. They want to know where the objects being brought into their homes are made and by whom. Makers in cities across the country (who we happily uncover in every issue of Luxe) are responding with thoughtfully crafted forms and materials that appeal to the new sensibility. Ultimately, of course, 21st-century design is a mix; a multicultural mash-up of ideas, with, perhaps, a pinch of Florence, a dose of Athens and, for good measure, a smattering of Detroit.

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

LAURA MAUK

Writer / Washington, D.C. What made you want to become a writer? Curiosity. I love finding out why individuals think the way they do. I also enjoy stringing words together in what I hope is a painterly way that gives people understanding or lets them see something differently. If I could interview anyone, it would be… Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frank Lloyd Wright or Donald Judd. They were all revolutionaries with such unique visions and strong characters. Each of them led an interesting life, making iconic art and architecture in authentic and thoughtful ways. Is there anything intriguing you currently in the world of design? I love the way design continues to connect to nature with lots of glass, sunlight and simple, organic materials. Form and texture have evolved and, as a result, I feel that buildings and furniture today are much more dynamic. Photographer / New York

If you could shoot anywhere in the U.S., where would it be? I would love to have the opportunity to experience, and also photograph, James Turrell’s Roden Crater in Arizona. His work is all about light, space and how we as viewers perceive our surroundings. Most memorable Luxe assignment: A Hamptons house with the talented Jennifer Post. Light is a critical feature for every architectural or interiors shoot and, in this case, the changing weather conditions worked perfectly throughout our day—cloudy or sunny when we needed it! What type of architecture inspires you? Truly bespoke structures that elegantly solve problems and create energetic, livable spaces. I’ve had a longtime collaboration with architect Ali Tayar, and the houses he has designed—from Rhode Island to Beirut—embody this approach with refinement and finesse. Documenting these environments is both challenging and invigorating.

COM_LX6_Contributors_098.indd 98

JOE FLETCHER

Photographer / San Francisco Biggest influences: Creatives in the worlds of art, photography and film, especially the work of Edward Burtynsky, Robert Polidori, Thomas Demand and Jeff Wall. Most exciting thing happening in design today: The amount of design that’s shared worldwide via social media. What type of architecture do you find most impactful? Quiet, minimalistic architecture—designs that let nature do the talking. If I could splurge on anything… It would be on a trip to Greece for my family so we can enjoy the turquoise sea and fried cheeses in the shade. Or a piece by Thomas Demand.

LINDA HAYES

Writer / Colorado Favorite Luxe interview: It was for a home on Vancouver Island. On an early meeting with the architect, Brian Hemingway, the owner of the house watched him take out a pen and just start drawing; he told me that observing him was such a magical part of the process. The image that conjured up has always stuck with me. My biggest design influence comes from… The process of architecture and its ability to transform the simplest idea into an elegant, functional structure. It reminds me that creativity is about both the journey and the destination. Who is the most fascinating person you’ve ever met? Charles Smith, owner of Charles Smith Wines in Walla Walla, Washington. He’s a bigger-thanlife personality, an intuitive thinker and a brilliant marketer. He led the recent design of his new Seattle winery, as well as the restoration of his midcentury house, with local architect Tom Kundig. Impressive!

HOME GROWN FURNITURE PRODUCTION RETURNS STATESIDE IN WHAT IS PROVING TO BE A REBIRTH OF THE AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN. WRITTEN BY MIEKE TEN HAVE / PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ

or American furniture production, the yen for substantive, enduring quality— something commonplace only decades ago—has certainly reached a fever pitch in a day where genuineness in products is all but profuse. This nostalgic zeitgeist is ushering in a new wave of makers from various disciplines and perspectives, each bound by the desire to create in unique, original ways. “Design is the key,” says Sara Ossana of Warren, Rhode Island-based O&G Studio. “We’ve tapped into the idea that good design could save the continuity of craftsmanship.” Artist and furniture craftsman Ian Stell of New York City, known

LXCOM_Radar_Made_In_America_107.indd 108

for his highly unorthodox, mesmerizingly sculptural pieces, simply calls this widespread craving for authenticity an “American design renaissance.” “There’s a competition that has been intensifying,” he says, “and it’s pushing both quality and originality.” But what is American furniture design today? According to Brooklyn-based designer Asher Israelow, it is not bound by a style but rather an ethos. “There is no aesthetic correlation,” he says, “but it is aspirational; it’s forward-thinking. It’s reinventing the wheel. American designers are not necessarily bogged down by traditional craft techniques and apprenticeships that perhaps

our European counterparts are.” Israelow was studying architecture in school when on a whim, he took up woodworking while completing his thesis. “I’m entirely self-taught with wood. It became an obsessive hobby,” he says. Instead of becoming an architect, Israelow shifted gears to furniture because he believed it would provide more creative license. It is a circuitous route to furniture production that many young designers echo. Los Angeles-based Sabin Ousey was working in sales at Lawson-Fenning when he began making furniture for his own apartment as a creative outlet, prompting him to open his own company last January. His collection pays

homage to various viewpoints, from Paul McCobb to Spanish Colonial motifs. “America, particularly California, lacks centuries of history, so it gives us an opportunity to forge a new aesthetic,” says Ousey. “Rather than copying tradition, we are playing with historic motifs. That is how new genres and trends emerge.” New York interior designer Eddie Lee finds an egalitarian quality in today’s design scene. “Furniture makers are coming from all different backgrounds these days,” he says. “That’s a very American concept.” Stephen Antonson, the Brooklyn plaster master who references Giacometti and Gio Ponti in his sculptural line of work, thinks there is something

LXCOM_Radar_Made_In_America_107.indd 109

to this “design first” ingenuity that separates the successful American designer. “You can go to the design shows and say, ‘oh, there’s the guy that studied woodworking in school: he’s made the most amazing dovetail you’ve ever seen,’ but it’s rather uninspired design-wise,” he says. Like Israelow and Ousey, Antonson never studied plaster or furniture making in school. “I think there’s a streak of naiveté that allows good designers to do weird things, to be open to doing something backward. That’s where innovation happens. You’re not trying to make this boring, perfect thing that is like all the other boring, perfect things.” Ty Best of Chicago’s Caste Design,

None of this is to say that design traditions do not inform the current American furniture marketplace. Stickley, the pioneer of Mission and American Arts and Crafts furniture, has been around for over a century and has changed hands only once—from the original Stickley family to the Audi family in 1974—all the while employing their original, traditional woodworking techniques. That is not to say that the Manlius, New York-based company hasn’t propelled forward with every generation; Aminy Audi, the CEO of Stickley, credits this to the company’s diversification and a resistance to laurelresting. “We’ve added many different styles, from updated traditional to midcentury modern collections,” she says, adding, however, that it is the education of the consumer that matters most.

Clockwise from top: Los Angeles’ Sabin taps local craftsmen to manufacture its made-to-order offerings; the Rexford cabinet is shown. Black walnut and solid brass inlay comprises the Neversink table by Asher Israelow of Brooklyn. From the mind of interior designer Brad Ford, Field + Supply is a yearly modern makers craft fair in High Falls, New York; the U bench by Luur Studio, sold through The Future Perfect, is an example of what’s in store for fair goers. A peek at Israelow’s process.

who formerly had a life and career in the fashion industry, also echoes the sentiment: “It sounds sort of Pollyanna, but I never knew about the possibilities of what could go wrong; I went into it head first without any hesitation.” Best’s refined, hand-hewn pieces, often in weighty materials like bronze and marble, are nationally distributed by Holly Hunt. He finds the isolation of rural Montana instead of community hotbeds like Brooklyn or Los Angeles to be the best source of unfiltered inspiration. “I think if I had more contemporaries opining on my designs, my work wouldn’t be so avant-garde,” he says.

1/21/16 6:04 PM


“When people understand the work and quality behind one of these pieces, they realize it is a lifetime investment. It is something they can pass on to a future generation.” O&G Studio is a contemporary example of modernizing a deeply ingrained American motif—the Windsor chair, whose roots stem from our earliest English colonists. Ossana and partner Jonathan Glatt electrify the genre with unexpected colors and proportions. “It’s something intrinsic to the American design community,” Ossana says, “our history allows us to question authority.” New York-based interior designer Brad Ford, who has become a kind of pied piper for independent craftsmanship, says, “The U.S. has become one of the most dynamic places for burgeoning design talent.” Last October, Ford held his second-annual Field + Supply fair in High Falls, New York. “Growing up in a small town in Arkansas and being a creative kid, I always loved going to the arts and crafts fairs,” he says. “It created a sense of community that is now so often lacking.” Ford decided to take this concept and elevate it by cherry-picking some of the best American designers across various disciplines, like Israelow, Apparatus and The Future Perfect. “With Field + Supply, we want the work to be serious but the experience to be anything but,” he says, adding, “It is important that design not be alienating. Consumers are more and more responding to the meaning and soul of something that is made by hand. It automatically separates itself from other mass-produced furnishings.” Ford is so confident in the shifting consumer paradigm that this fall, he opened Fair, a showroom at the New York Design Center highlighting elevated craft and design, representing many of the American designers he curated for Field + Supply. No matter the aesthetic, whether historically referential or avant-garde, the independent American furniture maker offers a quality that an outsourced big-box manufacturer simply can’t. “My clients want to understand and know the object that they have a personal relationship with; our local makers give us that,” says interior designer Celerie Kemble, who is deeply involved in keeping artisan traditions afloat—particularly with The Alpha Workshops, the nation’s only nonprofit organization providing creative HIV-positive individuals with industry-specific training and employment in the decorative arts. “People are increasingly caring about these pieces that they live with. Furniture is a very intimate thing, and so, too, should be the process.”

INFORMED BY HIS VORACIOUS APPETITE FOR TRAVEL, JIUN HO’S SCULPTURAL LINE OF FURNITURE CELEBRATES AN ANNIVERSARY.

Above: In his San Francisco studio, designer Jiun Ho stands near one of his No More Play tables, part of the Jiun Ho Collection V line and inspired by Alberto Giacometti’s sculpture of the same name.

For Jiun Ho, the San Francisco designer behind the furniture collection that bears his name, it all comes down to narrative. “I want to tell a story,” he says of the line, now celebrating its 15th anniversary. More often than not, the stories stem from his travels (he spends at least three months a year traveling the world, with recent stops in Kyoto and Sicily). “I take a lot of pictures to remind me of my experiences,” he notes. “There are times when I look at things and say ‘that could be a base for a dining table’ and there are times when I have to look at the photo, take a step back and create from there.” He points to the Maras chair in his newly introduced Jiun Ho Collection V as an example. “If you look at the lines of the chair and the stonework found at Machu Picchu and Sacsahuamán in Peru, you can see where the inspiration comes from.” The rest of the 16-piece collection similarly draws on Ho’s wide-ranging travels and experiences, as well as weaves together the narrative threads of previous introductions and makes graceful allusions to modern art. When first launching his business, though, the designer’s primary objective was not building a furniture brand, but rather to create unique spaces and user-friendly experiences. Then a client asked him if he would sketch some furniture. “I said, ‘Sure, I can give it a try,’›” he recalls. “I came up with 35-40 pieces.” Connecting with a factory based in Southern California, Ho began manufacturing the pieces (most of which have been made in the United States ever since) and a brand was born. As the company has evolved, so has Ho’s approach. “We create the trends; we don’t let them drive us,” he says. “We focus on timeless, elegant shapes and forms and emphasize the tranquility, balance and pureness of the pieces. That, and attention to detail, is what’s important to us.”

HISTORY REPEATING AN ICONIC AMERICAN ESTATE SERVES AS A MUSE FOR WILDWOOD LAMPS & ACCENTS’ LATEST COMPENDIUM OF LIGHTING.

ARCHITECTURAL ANTIQUES: COURTESY AUTHENTIC PROVENCE.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS PHOTOGRAPHY BY CLAUDIA URIBE

Steeped in rich, historical references, the Biltmore Estate has been inspiring design and architecture since its reveal in 1895 by George Washington Vanderbilt II, grandson of famed industrialist and philanthropist Cornelius Vanderbilt. The 250-room French Renaissance château set upon 8,000 acres of pristine Ashville, North Carolina, land was designed as a country retreat for the family and remained so well into the 20th century. With certainly no shortage of inspiration to draw from—the house itself features over 100,000 square feet comprised of 35 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms and 65 fireplaces— the artisanal team behind Wildwood Lamps & Accents turned to the estate as a muse for their most recent collection, receiving unparalleled access to the pieces that made this sprawling house a home. One such piece uncovered during the brand’s creative pursuit was an ancient cinnabar box belonging to George’s wife, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser Vanderbilt. Quickly recognizing the potential in the raised floral relief etching, the Wildwood team developed big plans for the motif: Aptly named after the lady of the house, the resulting Edith lamps (shown) are conveyed in three colorways that each take on a different persona. The Edith lamp in Red, for instance, reflects a traditional Asian-like feel, while the Powder Blue hue professes a more serene garden-esque vibe; Oyster proves to be the chameleon of the group, able to live in both modern and traditional environments. All flaunting brushed finishes, modern silhouettes and sleek drum shades, this versatile collection effusively transcends aesthetics, genres and eras—taking its place as a graceful classic with a firm foothold in today’s interiors.

ATHENS, GEORGIA-BASED CREATOR SUSAN HABLE LENDS HER DESIGN TALENT AND ARTISTIC VISION TO A CHIC NEW HOME COLLECTION. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY LACY MORRIS PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRIS BRANTLEY/WHITE ORANGE PRODUCTIONS

You are involved in a little bit of everything—painting, textiles, furniture, interiors. What led you to where you are today? I’ve always been an artist, and after working for several small businesses, mostly in jewelry, I realized that it was time to start my own design company. My sister, Katharine Hable Sweeney, and I launched Hable Construction in New York City in 1999, but in 2009, I decided to make the move to Athens. This was an eye-opening experience in that I realized how productive having my own studio was for my art. Describe your design aesthetic. I don’t play by the rules and I don’t discriminate where I turn to for inspiration—one day it’s Egyptian metalwork and the next it’s a Japanese kimono. I look to different cultures for inspiration in my color palettes and patterns. Tell us about your relationship with Hickory Chair. We started working together about six years ago on an exclusive fabric collection, and we’ve grown from there. Our common goals were to create quality products and make as many pieces domestically as possible. Why do you think it’s so important to keep production stateside? It is crucial for me to see the furniture being prototyped with my eyes on the product, and I work with the designers and engineers to make sure that all of the details that make the pieces special are being executed as they should. It’s such a luxury to see the hands that go into making each piece of our collection. We love the blue mirrored console for Hickory Chair’s sister company, La Barge (shown). It’s part of 25 new pieces we are adding to the original collection for the brand, and it is made with gilded wood and blue glass. I had seen that blue shade in a few midcentury pieces, but nothing current; we searched all over until we finally tracked it down abroad. I’m crazy about simple design that is also chic, and I think this geometric piece fits the bill and would be fantastic in a foyer. What’s next? An additional collection for Hickory Chair will come later this year. The pieces are incredible, with a lot of new silhouettes, and our focus continues to be on the sculptural aspect of each design. Visually, the new collection will tell a more transitional, modern story. Incorporating an artistic approach to design, I work hard to let the tiniest of details speak for the entire product.

Why hardware? I was attracted to the partnership with Rocky Mountain Hardware because of the high-quality products they produce—handcrafted hardware made with time-honored casting methods. It was a pleasure to work with all of the talented artisans that created these pieces. What was it about Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates that inspired you? I moved to Los Angeles when I was 11 years old and it was then that I was first exposed to midcentury modern design. The Trousdale area boasts amazing midcentury architecture created by such a diverse group of architects. What I loved about these

homes in contrast to the boxy apartments that I was accustomed to in New York was that they had clean lines, open floor plans and, in a lot of cases, an abundance of glass. They were like the glamorous homes I had seen in Hollywood movies. And this collection represents that. Tell us more about the artistry and techniques. At Rocky Mountain, they still cast and finish each piece by hand, which is so impressive; they really bring to life this high level of artistry. With Trousdale, we wanted to generate products that married that craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic. The texture came out of wanting a more tactile experience with each piece, as well as serves as a way to visually emphasize the handcrafted nature. Give us a peek at your creative process. It’s a combination of sketching, looking at historical references and listening to music. “Hollywood Swinging” by Kool & the Gang was definitely inspirational in making this line. Finishes can truly transform a piece—taking something from traditional to totally rock and roll. Take us through the finishes. Trousdale will be offered in all of the Rocky Mountain finishes. Personally, I will be using the bronze light finish on a home I’m building in the Bahamas.

Lenny Kravitz has made no efforts to conceal his passion for interiors—establishing New Yorkbased Kravitz Design and producing several successful product lines. His latest collaboration with Rocky Mountain Hardware is yet another notch on his already-impressive design belt. In tune with both the artist’s modern aesthetic and love for classic design, the Rocky Mountain brand was more than prepared to bring Kravitz’s ideas to life. The resulting Trousdale collection combines a powerful ensemble of textures and shapes that culminates in a truly harmonious and showstopping array of hardware. We sat down with Kravitz as he discussed his latest collection.

NICOLE HOLLIS, SAN FRANCISCO Trademark: I’m all about simplicity with an edge: black, texture, cut and form. Morning routine: Up at 5:30 a.m., I check online auctions, design blogs, The New York Times and email. Post bath and meditation, it’s family time with my husband and 4-year-old; no better way to start the day. Dream office: I surround myself with beautiful objects in my studio, but it’s constantly changing—the smallest thing can inspire. We have huge windows overlooking the San Francisco skyline, and the sunsets are spectacular. Desktop items: My tools of the trade (color pencils, scratch paper and drawings), a rusty horseshoe, brass door hardware and a rock from a trip to Hawaii. Personal stationery: Custom letterpress with original artwork by Marta Elise Johansen. Mood board: Torn pages from fashion and art magazines and auction catalogues. On trend: Eighties fashion is back and inspiring interiors. I’m hooked on neon, shredded and studded accents.

HALLIE HENLEY, HOUSTON Trademark: My style is glamorous with a modern twist. Morning routine: Cuddling with my 9-month-old daughter, Scarlett. If she has her bottle and I have my coffee, I’ve already started off the day happy. Desktop items: My MacBook Pro, Kayce Hughes artwork I picked up from Rivers Spencer in New Orleans, a Moleskine sketchbook where I keep my notes and my father’s Montblanc pen. Personal stationery: Number Four Eleven in Savannah and Lavender & Mint in Houston. Mood board: Mine is a result of falling down the Instagram rabbit hole, and it’s where you’ll find work from artist Alexis Walter and architect Bill Ingram, to name a few. Never too many… Monogrammed linens. Can’t live without… My red lipstick. Guilty pleasure: Fabric. Sources of inspiration: Vintage out-of-print design books, estate sales and old classic movies—I can definitely credit Auntie Mame as being a push toward a life in design.

ALEXANDRA KAEHLER, CHICAGO

Trademark: My style is masculine balanced with feminine and old mixed with the new. I believe that these juxtapositions are what make a home complete.

Dream office: Mine is just that; our new office feels so fresh with tons of natural light and shelves upon shelves full of materials and samples for easy access to inspiration.

Displaying restraint… Kara Mann’s benches are cool and current yet also possess a timelessness to them that isn’t over-designed. The main lines of the piece… Are defined in solid black, providing a frame to emphasize the natural wood grain of the base; from a creative perspective I think it’s brilliant and beautiful. The attention to detail and beautiful finishing… Is an example of Baker’s trademark of uncompromising standards towards well-made furnishings. Luxury is a by-product of superior quality and sophisticated design. I always examine… Circulation, scale and the language spoken between pieces when creating areas conducive to conversation. Kara has done a wonderful job… Designing a versatile, clean, perfectly proportioned line, and I am excited to use her pieces in our clients’ spaces.

I’m at my creative best when… I am pushing the boundaries, and Kate Spade’s new furniture line does just that, apparent in the bow tie back detailing—a distinct motif of the company reinterpreted for an instant-classic dining chair. I am attracted to the bold… Example of Kate Spade’s ability to marry two of their most signature elements together: bows and polka-dots. The chairs embody… The brand’s embrace on the interiors world, displaying both formality and playfulness alongside masculine and feminine notes. The sweep of the legs is very distinctive… And the black-and-white polka-dot pattern speaks to confidence and individuality.

Fashion, design, art and architecture… Are all variations on a creative theme. Some of the best furnishing collections are born from fashion icons, often causing a tidal wave of symbiotic brand revival. I absolutely love the Hooker-Rowley collaboration for that exact reason—an unexpected brand pairing that stops you in your tracks. The Fleur de Glee bench is… Unmistakably Rowley in pattern yet shows off the refined upholstery elements for which Hooker is known. Add in the modern lines and jewelrylike metalwork detailing and you’re poised for perfection. As a fluent Francophile… I love the name and inherent playfulness associated with the bench. Whimsical upholstery meets modern metal—it’s the juxtaposition that makes us stop and ponder. Interiors should not exist on a single axis… But reflect the many moods and facets of personalities. Without creativity… Design becomes predictable and expected. Here, I’m so attracted to the hard, modern silhouette coupled with the floral, feminine pattern.

Every single thing… About the Morehead chair is for me. From its hefty, almost updated Parsons-style lines to its somewhat Postmodern personality and early 1980s appeal, it is as much a comfy spot to sit in as it is sculptural art. Silhouette is important… For the overall balance of a room and area of perspective. What’s interesting about these chairs is how strong and grounded their profiles are. Since they are so straight, they work beautifully with curved pieces, like say a Tulip table. Locally made forever pieces… Are what everyone is after these days. Hands down, these pieces are new and now, all while combining a classically architectural frame with a perhaps retro-style fabric choice that speaks to today’s lifestyle. The best way to describe my aesthetic… Is transitional with an edge, which fits to perfection with many of the pieces offered by Highland House. The lines are clean and draped in classicism, but the textiles are fit for modern-day tastes—the perfect mash-up of timeless and fresh.

Softness and warmth to a stark modern space or bring a maximalist room a sense of calm modernity. Where design really gets fun and memorable... Is when you start collecting valuable—not necessarily expensive—well-crafted treasures that have a history, a story and a sense of place. We love seeing the emergence of creative artisans in America and abroad. Luxury is a contract... Between maker and acquirer. The passion and talent of a great craftsman is married to the owner appreciating and understanding the beauty of an object that is made with a heart and soul.

OUTSIDE THE LINES COLOR REENERGIZES THE HOME’S MOST-FREQUENTED ROOMS FOR STUNNING SPACES THAT SHUN TRADITION AND DARE TO SHAKE THINGS UP. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

Typically, when whipping up a confectionary masterpiece, you don’t want to break the mold; it’s a vital part of keeping those baked goods looking their best. But that’s where following form in the kitchen should end: The best kitchen design is equal parts functional and unexpected, which is why incorporating color is becoming such an important element for a truly remarkable space. So, while crisp white cabinetry in both the kitchen and bathroom isn’t going anywhere soon, mixing in bold hues—whether it’s on the island and appliances in the kitchen or in the form of a statement-making wallpaper in the powder bath—is fast becoming the not-so-secret ingredient to cooking up spaces that will stand the test of time. Here, we celebrate the color-happy palettes and products that are taking the workhorse rooms of the home from bland to beautiful.

HAUTE DISH TAYLOR BORSARI

Designer Taylor Borsari channels Morocco in a Coronado, California, kitchen that dazzles with heavy doses of color, pattern and glammed-out gold. taylorborsari.com Share your design vision. The house was a historic remodel, and the kitchen was a blank space aside from the blue La Cornue oven. My first goal was to integrate the color of the range so it felt like part of an overall story rather than a random dash of color. I think many are nervous to jump into a bold range choice, but this is proof that it can be done without being too overwhelming.

Best ways to introduce pattern into the kitchen? I love patterned backsplashes! This is an area where you can really set the tone for a kitchen, and it’s an obvious area you can have a lot of fun with. Even tonal or monochromatic patterns can add interest. In this kitchen, we also added the carved island, which gave us a nice, ethnic twist to help balance the backsplash, as well as the very colorful range.

COM_LX6_TheLook_KitchenBath_186-194.indd 126

How can color revive and freshen up a kitchen? Color is a great addition to everyday life. White is classic and timeless, of course, but it is also a very safe option. This kitchen is a bit of a hybrid of pattern and color, and I think it is so much more interesting as a result. Plus, as more spaces are openplan these days, embracing a little more color in kitchens allows you to connect rooms more cohesively.

BLACK

BEAUTY Bringing color into the kitchen doesn’t have to mean looking to the rainbow for inspiration: quiet black matte can be just as impactful and statement-making, as demonstrated by the latest addition to Brizo’s high-fashion faucet line. Featuring a hidden pull-down wand, the Solna faucet makes a big impression with its articulating arm and fashion-forward finish. brizo.com

It’s no surprise that open shelving continues to be wildly popular in today’s kitchen, but for lovers of color, this modern design device is even more effective. Stacking brightly colored bowls, glasses, mugs and ceramics can infuse happy hues into the most neutral of kitchens, making it the perfect solution for homeowners who are looking to play it a little safer but still want to incorporate an element of fun and whimsy into their rooms. This vignette from designer Emily Henderson shows that there are no rules when it comes to styling your shelves; just don’t be shy to share your favorite pieces, regardless of color scheme or theme. stylebyemilyhenderson.com

FREE & CLEAR Snaidero’s newest introduction, Code, in collaboration with designer Michele Marcon, is challenging the kitchen’s status quo with its innovative paint-by-number system. In Code, consumers can opt for cabinets in varying finishes and colors with an easy online ordering system that makes it a breeze to mix and match for infinite layout solutions. It’s about as personal as you can get in the kitchen. snaidero-usa.com

BAKE OFF OFFICINE GULLO Crafted from heavy-gauge stainless steel and solid brass, Italian manufacturer Officine Gullo’s Grand Villa oven range is serious about both cooking and its own good looks. And the best part? The oven can be fabricated in literally any RAL color—Europe’s version of the popular Pantone system—for endless opportunities for inspiration and customization. officinegullousa.com

Sconces from Galerie des Lampes and an art piece, Jay Hodgins’ Straumi 8, add an air of modern elegance to the room. The chair is custom by Anne Hepfer, upholstered in fabric from Kravet and trim from Samuel & Sons.

This serene vanity space by Toronto designer Anne Hepfer is transformed with color. Benjamin Moore’s Coventry Gray on the cabinetry acts as both statement-maker and pretty neutral against the softer walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s Stonington Gray. “The cabinetry is tailored but feminine, with some round detailing to maintain traditional character but in a cleaner more current design,” explains Hepfer. Far from traditional, though, is what she sees as the next big thing in powerful palettes: “I have a feeling that gray is here to stay for a while, so we’re popping spaces with bold hits of color—fuchsia, canary yellow, teal—and, of course, black and white accents. I’m loving the play of contrast and unexpected combinations!” annehepfer.com

A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT MAKES THE KITCHEN AND BATH SOME OF OUR FAVORITE ROOMS IN THE HOME. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

MADE TO ORDER Kitchens and bathrooms spent the first part of their lives inside the home hidden away, separated from the pretty living and family rooms where all the action was happening. Today, though, the kitchen and bath are front and center, with gorgeous new options that transform the rooms into gallery-like spacesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with faucets that double as works of art, tiles that look like they belong in a museum, and lots of great new technology that ensures these spaces are as hardworking as they are good-looking. On the following pages, Luxe examines all the ways the kitchen and bath have been transformed for modern living.

MATERIAL MAGIC For this handsome Santa Monica, California, kitchen by architect May Sung, materials take center stage to great effect thanks to the wonderful grain and texture of the reclaimed wood on the island and perimeter cabinetry, which contrast powerfully with the limestone backsplash tiles from Walker Zanger. “We wanted to create an oasis that is masculine and bring in natural material, without looking like a lumberjack’s cabin,” says Sung. “All of the material had to be genuine and true to that vision.” gsubuda.com

Sure, the classic French press has its own rustic charm, but nothing says, “I’m serious about my coffee,” like a brew station that can deliver rich espresso, sweet lattes and foamtopped cappuccinos at the touch of a button. Miele’s CM6310 Countertop Coffee System does just that and then some; with four user profiles to account for different tastes and an integrated cup warmer, it’s just like having your own barista at home— misspelled name on a paper cup not included. mieleusa.com

SPLASH ZONE

A backsplash represents the founding principles of a kitchen: It should be both beautiful and functional. But, in the case of the New Ravenna tile backsplash in this kitchen by Los Angeles-based designer Kishani Perera, it goes one further: being totally statement-making. Luckily, the vast expanses of white on the cabinetry make it, and the warm, chevron-patterned wood flooring that accompanies it, visually stimulating but not overwhelming. kishaniperera.com

Touches of gold and brass are slowly taking the place of chrome and polished nickel in contemporary bathrooms, thanks to their easy warmth and timeless aesthetic. In this space by designer Casey Keasler, from the creative Portland studio of Casework, brass faucets from Kohler join mirrors—replicas of 1930s French wall consoles from RH—in creating a can’t-look-away sink area. The golden hues are the perfect complement to the cabinetry’s bold teal color. “The brass helped create a certain richness,” says Keasler. “I like a clean, quiet space where everything is done for a reason and not because of a trend.” casework.it

A curving New York-bluestone path leads to the home, which features a Dutch gambrel façade with low mounds of boxwood at the sides; divided-light windows showcase diamond detailing. Karney stone, a sedimentary rock from New Jersey hand-chipped and chiseled to fit, was used for retaining walls.

ucked behind a wispy screen of river birches, just steps from New York’s Mecox Bay, is a sprawling 10,000-squarefoot Shingle-style home set on a 1-acre site in Water Mill. Architecturally, it’s not unlike many of its neighbors in the Hamptons, so when interior designer Jennifer Post initially walked up the New York-bluestone path to the entrance, she was a little confused. Her first thought: “Are you sure you have the right person?” For Post’s idiom is contemporary: crisp, clean lines; bold; bright; ethereal. And despite what the exterior

NAT_LX29_NYpickup_Post_150-165.indd 152

may have portrayed, that is exactly what the owners of this home were looking for in a vacation residence. “They envisioned modern and sexy interiors—a very entertainment-oriented décor, indoors and out,” says Post. “They wanted to use every room, every day.” For the almost newlyweds, the redesign was an opportunity to create a from-scratch living space, with pops of their favorite colors and art—a haven for family and friends. “It’s all about the views,” says the husband, a finance executive who has four children ages 17 to 24 from a previous marriage. “We wanted to come in from the bay and plop down in comfort.”

Interior designer Jennifer Post balanced the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional paneled walls, ceiling and balustrade with a playful, modern, 47-foot-long custom silk-and-wool runner from Doris Leslie Blau accented by white markings reminiscent of beach pebbles. A pair of square poured-concrete pillars held up by bronze, by artist Eric Slayton, represents the ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new life together. The painting is by Oscar Murillo.

Originally built with pile construction and grade-beam foundation, the architecture was designed to be stately and timeless, but it also needed to comply with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) elevations to accommodate the flood zone. “We had to build it up in excess of 30,000 yards of fill after we built the retaining wall,” explains general contractor John Nocera. “The first-floor elevation is above the flood plain, and there are 196 pilings under the home.” To take advantage of the views, though, architectural changes were made— such as relocating the master-suite wing to the east side and, perhaps most important, shifting the location of the pool from the backyard to the side of the home facing the bay on the south. It is in this context that Post began setting up engaging tensions in the interior, installing her signature Benjamin Moore Super White on the walls. She next re-stained the floors from dark chocolate to a heather

gray to make them simultaneously fun and sophisticated. “Everything I do is very deliberate,” says the designer. “I truly believe furniture should be comfortable—but I like to treat it as architecture and sculpture.” Indeed, the furniture serves function with distinctive forms. Post calls a large-scale white-lacquer carbonfilter floor lamp that hovers over furnishings in the living room her “praying mantis.” In the lounge, the designer eschewed expected furnishings and placements in favor of a quartet of modern rockers gathered around one of her custom-designed tables. “I just wanted to do something arresting,” says Post, who launched a palette of brilliant blue with orange accents—requested by the homeowners—which remains consistent throughout. “Blue goes so beautifully with the beach.” For the octagonal sun room that looks out on the bay, she gave orange the starring role with roomy lounge chairs. The spacious master suite is a peaceful oasis, furthering the

water-sky blue palette, especially appreciated from a couple of private balconies. The link to the outdoors and the ambience from within was important to the landscaper, as well. “My inspiration was to create three different rooms,” says landscape designer Ruben Dario Garcia—who took over the project when the original landscape architect, George Lynch, passed away. “The barbecue area, seating area—where you can enjoy coffee—and the outdoor dining area are all surrounded by different shapes of boxwood, Pee Gee hydrangeas, big round white Annabelle’s and purple nepeta, so there’s color and separation.” Existing clay soil was not nurturing, however, and he had to replace it with sand and create natural irrigation troughs. “We dug 100 holes by hand, 6 feet down and almost as wide.” A natural, almost wild, look with indigenous plantings was the

goal, with the use of modern outdoor furnishings creating a seamless transition with the interiors. “Jennifer balanced sophistication with the artwork and furnishings,” notes Nocera, “maintaining a beachy feel throughout that is totally livable.” And the homeowners are in complete agreement. “Coming out here,” says the husband, “my whole mood changes. I feel like I’m heading to a place of relaxation.” His wife especially appreciates this aura in the bright, open kitchen, which is complete with top-of-the-line appliances and a 2-inch-thick honed statuary marbletopped island. “It is my favorite room,” says the wife. “It’s the place where everyone gathers. We spend the most time there, standing around the counter with a bottle of wine. I start cooking something, and it’s spacious enough to fit everyone. Good things are always happening—it’s perfect.”

Often sketching out his pieces first, Alexander Krivosheiw (right) sculpts bronze and aluminum into works that honor the female form, seen in Cassandra (above). Based in West Palm Beach, Florida, Krivosheiw has reached global acclaim; as proof, he’s currently working on a project for the International Olympic Committee.

est Palm Beach artist Alexander Krivosheiw has a background more colorful than a Lilly Pulitzer kaftan. He’s hopped from an apprenticeship in Greece with a marble sculptor, to interviewing with the creature department at George Lucas’ film studio, to working with kinetic engineers in California, to perfecting his craft in New York, and finally settling down in South Florida. “Moving to Florida and the beach has heavily influenced my work,” he says. “Brooklyn is incredibly progressive, but sand feels a lot better on your feet than concrete sometimes. Immediately, I felt my life shift gears and open up to new ideas and global opportunities.” While spending 17 years in Brooklyn’s art-centric Dumbo neighborhood, though, Krivosheiw studied under abstract metal sculptor Kevin Barrett, whose work heavily impacted his current aesthetic and taught him about the business side of having a career in art. Today, Krivosheiw’s sculptures also follow abstract figurative silhouettes. But despite using heavy, imposing materials of bronze and aluminum, the artist gives a breathy,

weightless movement to his forms, creating dancer-like shapes in fluid, liquid finishes. “It’s like old-school blacksmithing,” he says, “but instead of heating the metal, I work with it cold and hammer it out.” Fabricating 18-foot-tall sculptures and casting works that weigh up to 3 tons requires more than just cranes and forklifts—there’s a delicate creative process that precedes the heavy lifting. “Creating oversize organic forms usually starts with a smaller model or maquette,” he says. “I draw a design on paper, cut out the shapes and start forming them. If I like the way they twist and curve, I trace them out on sheets of metal and handbend and contort those shapes, and then weld all of the metal sheets together. What follows is hours upon hours of grinding with numerous tools until I think it’s complete.” Moore’s Canova, Krivosheiw’s current collection, pays homage to his icons Henry Moore and Antonio Canova, and is influenced by the Greek mythological love story of Cupid and Psyche, as well as his own relationships. “Passion, love, comedy and tragedy—to have the experience of love is a muse in and of itself,” he says. But perhaps the most romantic aspect of all is the permanence of the artist’s creations. “Metal allows me to create a language that will exist far beyond my lifetime,” Krivosheiw says. “I’m creating beauty for people and the world to enjoy, and that’s something we all need in our lives today.”

Krivosheiw uses grinders and machinery to craft his undulating metal sculptures. He’s shown on the opposite page working on his Rever II sculpture of fabricated aluminum. His abstract figurative pieces also include the Moore’s Canova series (left) inspired by the love story of Cupid and Psyche.

esigner Robert Rionda’s apartment in Miami Beach represented both a homecoming and an opportunity to experiment. Able to embrace whims and passions without the usual constraint of client deadlines, Rionda has created over time an open-plan loft teeming with a mix of vintage midcentury, contemporary and antique furniture in a home filled wall to wall with his extensive art collection. “When I design for myself, I am open to different styles and directions as the project progresses,” Rionda says. “I made this fun and gave myself a break and tried different things.” His original concept, a kind of beachy look, isn’t at all what he ended up doing. “If pieces looked great, I kept them. If not, I switched them,” Rionda says. “I had no expectations about how things were going to work. I wanted a layered home, and sometimes that takes time: putting pieces together and finding others down the road to make it more interesting. It’s ongoing and it never ends, and I love that.” Rionda was born in Connecticut to Cuban-immigrant parents and moved to Miami with them at a young age. He soon went off to experience adventures in school and career around the country, eventually settling in New York practicing law. But interior design called to him, and he

began taking on projects in New York while commuting to Miami to help his late mother, who was also a designer, with hers. Over time, his client base developed even further in Miami and Latin America, and he began to miss the warm environs and vibrant culture of South Florida—so purchasing a residence here was a natural next step. Rionda remembered that while visiting family several years prior, he had seen a building by acclaimed architect Chad Oppenheim called Montclair Lofts that, at the time, was under construction near the beach: a hybrid of an old original Art Deco structure wrapped on three sides with a taller U-shaped new building. “It seemed very different, so when I started to think about dividing my time with South Beach, this was the first place I looked,” he recalls. And the location was as eye-catching as the architecture. “Coming from New York, I wanted to be near the beach but also able to walk out of my door and not get in my car to go out to eat,” he adds. As soon as Rionda walks back through the door, though, he is greeted by an art gallery feel. The designer is a regular visitor to the annual Art Basel Miami Beach art fair, and scarcely a square foot of wall space in the entire loft is without paintings, drawings and photographs with an emphasis on Cuban and Latin American artists.

renovate and help make the loft his own, Rionda even added a half-wall at the entrance to hide a view of the kitchen and create more display space. He then painted all the walls a pristine white and bleached the heretofore-dark-stained oak floors (rather than painting them, to leave their grain visible). “In both Miami and New York, I don’t have any walls left, but I’ll keep rearranging and filling them,” he says. “I have never sold a piece of art I’ve collected. It’s just about loving something.” Entering the loft via the dining area, Rionda enjoys the eclectic mix that is evident at once. Here, a gathering of piercingly blue photos of jellyfish by Brazilian artist Renato Freitas looks down at a classic midcentury Saarinen dining table paired with Louis XVI chairs and a 1920s banquette. They all sit beneath 1940s French factory lights that Rionda acquired through Bourgeois Bohème in Los Angeles. Just a few feet away is the living area, anchored by a classic B&B Italia sofa that Rionda uses with both modern and traditional projects. It’s joined by a winged chair that was inspired by a midcentury design, two goatskin coffee tables, and antique clawfoot Georgian chairs that belonged to his mother (updated with new striped upholstery). Over the sofa is a Sergio Payares painting so large that it had to

be removed from its frame, rolled up and remounted in the loft. “A piece this large is a commitment,” he says, “but there are so many colors in it and interpretations.” Rionda’s bedroom is completely open to the rest of the loft, but the designer created a sense of place with a grass-cloth accent wall in gray (the only non-white surface aside from the bathroom) and a four-poster bed. The space is a gallery unto itself, with works by Yosvany Teijeiro, Palma Blank-Rosenblum, Sonia Delaunay and Humberto Vento. As a nod to the entertaining he enjoys, at the foot of the bed is a Moroccan settee dating to the 1800s and re-covered in turquoise Fortuny fabric. The adjacent office almost feels like a furniture gallery, with a handsome Lucite desk and a stainless-steel Philippe Starck chair that was originally designed for the Chinese restaurant Kong in Paris. When Rionda has guests over, every corner of the loft is open to them. “I have had large parties here, with 100 or even 150 people. It doesn’t feel like people are wandering into your bedroom. It’s just one open space,” he says. “I enjoy designing for more quaint or partitioned rooms, but here I like to look around and appreciate all at once the finds I’ve collected and curated over time.”

Alfredo Custom Furniture updated the kitchen with gray cabinetry and a refinished cabinet from Rionda’s childhood home for the island, which is topped with travertine from Miami Stone District. Tiles from Innovative Surfaces give the backsplash eyecatching patterning. Vintage ceramics are by Edmund Weyhe, and the Bosch refrigerator is from Ferguson.

aised in rural Oregon and Colorado, it’s no surprise that Los Angeles-based artist Stefan Bishop developed an early appreciation for wood from his father—a sculptor and “lumberjack of sorts,” he reports. “I was enthralled with the power of the tools, the massiveness and strength of the trees, and the smell of sawdust and gasoline.” That fascination would bear fruit during his time at California College of the Arts when Bishop began to create a series of geometric, totem-like wood sculptures, which still resonate in his practice today. After the self-described “experiential learner” left school, he honed his craft in workshops in Los Angeles and Chicago. However, it is the work of the late artist Donald Judd that had the greatest influence on Bishop’s overall aesthetic. “At first it was just dizzying, bewildering, how objects so simple and pure could completely rock me to my core,” he explains. “It took years to stop trying to understand and explain the brilliance of his work and to simply absorb it.” Since launching his own studio in 2012, Bishop has expanded his repertoire to incorporate bronze. “It allows me to make things that wouldn’t be structurally sound in wood,” he notes. In contrast to his work in wood, Bishop’s Puddle series of bronze tables have fluid lines inspired by reoccurring dreams of water, most notably a nap-time vision of golden liquid pouring down his forehead. “I saw this image of a splash that dripped down to become the base,” he says. Regardless of medium and form, Bishop’s work possesses a common thread. “Whether they are architectural pieces or organic, flowing things, I consider my work to be abstract scale models of various landscapes and topographies of both the natural world and urban, industrial constructs,” he says, noting that he visualizes a miniature version of himself inhabiting his creations. “I don’t find answers, but I don’t really need them. My work is about the exploration.”

t was the perfect match: a century-old estate that had seen better days and East Coast transplants who could see its potential. Happily, the two found each other. The owners, who had watched friends transform their Gilded Age houses back East, were poised for the challenge of doing the same when they relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area. But, given the state of the 1915 house they purchased, they knew it wouldn’t be easy. “You really had to look hard to see the true beauty of this thing,” says the husband. “One hundred years of neglect was pretty obvious.” To get things started, the owner and his wife hired a team— architect Bennett Christopherson, builder Nick W. Ozier and landscape architect Jeff George—that was just completing a project nearby. But the couple quickly realized that they needed a designer sooner rather than later and turned to Maria Tenaglia. “We brought in Maria to help us control things from an appearance perspective,” says the husband. “She helped us establish a vision to understand the project.” Given Tenaglia’s background in architecture, she was perfectly suited to advise on all aspects of the extensive renovation that lay ahead as well as keep a cohesive and stylish eye on the overall aesthetic. “We went from zero to 60 in literally 48 hours,” Tenaglia says, recalling the time between the initial consult and getting the project underway. “The demo, design and build-out were only 22 months.” An aggressive schedule, considering four levels had to be gutted and rebuilt to modern earthquake codes. That’s not to mention the changes necessary to suit this young family’s modern lifestyle. The structure had fine elements of Georgian architecture, along with ornately paneled rooms, decorative plaster ceilings and intricately carved moldings. Yet the layout was a less-desirable holdover from when servants occupied warrens of small rooms beyond the large public spaces. “We wanted to respect the inherent architecture but at the same time give it the new lease on life that it desperately needed,” Tenaglia says. To meet that goal and stick with the clients’ strict timeline, the design, construction and architectural plans needed to evolve simultaneously for the 12,900-square-foot house. While Christopherson collaborated with the husband to rework the floor plan, Tenaglia worked with the wife on a plan to express their contemporary tastes within a deeply traditional setting. “I said we were going to think about the furniture in a different way, and the backdrop of the inherent architecture will simply be that—a backdrop,” explains Tenaglia. When it came to selecting pieces, the designer kept to clean lines and modern silhouettes. She custom-designed a sofa for the living room and paired it with a sleek gold-leaf-and-glass coffee table and an Ironies chandelier. The streamlined forms of the pieces create the perfect foil to the room’s intricate millwork. Taking cues from the wife’s affinity for color—purple, aubergine and blue, in particular—the designer alternated those shades with what she calls “neutral zones” of cream and gold throughout the interiors. Although the living room stayed relatively muted, the dining room’s walls are sheathed with a deep blue, and the library is brimming with jewel tones. In the latter, Tenaglia dressed a pair of custom wing chairs with purple fabric and upholstered a tufted sofa with chartreuse velvet. “I approached the furnishings with a modern point of view,” says the designer. “The pieces are bold, elegant and

NAT_LX29_Tenaglia_186-203.indd 189

very practical. And with the dynamic use of color throughout, the overall effect is unexpected and unique.” She worked in tandem with art advisor Tom O’Connor, who added another layer of interest by curating significant modern works for the main level and lower-level ballroom. Christopherson, meanwhile, produced a layout that eliminated small secondary rooms in favor of an open kitchen, breakfast area and family room on the main floor and bigger bedrooms and a large master suite upstairs. The gracious proportions of the ornate public spaces and elegant stair hall that branch off from the entry on the main level remained intact. “The flow of space between the public rooms was quite special, and we didn’t touch it,” Christopherson says, noting how the entry not only anchors the living room, dining room, parlor and conservatory, but is also on axis with breathtaking views of the city’s horizon. For the reworked family areas, Tenaglia designed simpler moldings while keeping to the original proportions, and she updated much of the original trimwork with a creamy white paint. “Paint is the perfect medium for change,” she says, though it took a bit of convincing. “On the East Coast, dark paneling is more common, but from a Californian’s point of view, it just seemed too dark and formal for a young family.” But before the paint could be applied, samples of the original trim and moldings were set aside and cataloged so that they—and custom duplicates if needed—could go back in their place once Ozier’s team rebuilt the foundation, replaced the electrical and plumbing systems, and reinforced most walls. Ozier also kept, polished and reused many switchplates, doorknobs and other hardware. Unlike remodeling attempts in the house’s past, he says, “We were far more careful in constructing the house to pay attention to the original design and honor its intentions.” Likewise, George nodded to the home’s history with rosebushes and citrus trees outside the glass conservatory— common garden designs for estate homes of this era—and he framed the entry with traditional spiral junipers and Italian cypress. But in the backyard, he created a modern-day playground with a boccie ball court, putting green and a large fire pit and conversation area. “That was the challenge,” George says. “Fitting in all of these contemporary uses, but also weaving them into the traditional aspects of the home.” The owners give high praise to the entire team for meeting that exact challenge. “It’s a real sense of accomplishment,” the husband says. “We’ve fixed this house for the next 100 years.”

The evening was enhanced by a special award dedication to Luxe Editor in Chief Pamela Jaccarino by the mayor of Beverly Hills, Julian A. Gold, M.D., for her commitment to the restoration of the Doheny Greystone estate. World-class pianist Alexander Borghese provided entertainment throughout the evening by tickling the ivories of Steinway & Sons’ Special Collection Red Pops piano, which was front row center in the estate’s grand hall. Luxe extends its gratitude to the participating designers, sponsors, vendors and showrooms for their generous support of this project.

REDEFINING WHAT SCULPTURE COULD BE BY INTRODUCING MOVEMENT—AND MOREOVER, LIFE—CALDER’S TRULY PLAYFUL CREATIONS AWAKEN OUR SENSE OF WONDER THIS SPRING AS WE EXPLORE ALL THINGS KINETIC.
