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.

memo SHARON SUMMER PUBLISHER

Welcome to the March/April issue of Luxe Interiors + Design! Because many of our readers own more than one house, it comes as no surprise that over 80 percent are planning a home renovation project in the coming months. In response, check out our special advertorial section this issue on Trends in Renovation, with insight from some of our favorite design professionals. This past season, we were proud to attend many fantastic events. Luxe joined Voce Di to help celebrate the arrival of the Calvin Klein Home furniture line and Calvin Klein Curator Collection in its Greenwich, Connecticut, showroom. In addition, the company hosted a panel discussion exploring how homeowners in the community are moving toward a more modern aesthetic. We then partied with the Wheelock Design team in Old Greenwich to celebrate its new lifestyle showroom. Finally, in New York, Luxe was the media sponsor for the ASID NY Metro Chapter’s 2016 Design Summit, which was held at the A&D Building. We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we love sharing it with you!

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

F

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

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.

BLUEPRINT 200 EAST 59TH STREET

Overlooking Central Park, Macklowe Properties’ latest creation occupies land in the Upper East Side, on the corner of 59th Street and 3rd Avenue, and is reminiscent of one of its more famous buildings, the glassy, cube-like Apple Store on 5th Avenue. Street pedestrians will be treated to a façade of woven metals, which reflect light during the day and emit a soft glow at night, while residences feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls and continuous outdoor terraces—meaning spectacular views are to be had both inside and out. The building’s palette will play off of white-oak floors and built-ins of white stone. The tower is the latest development in a neighborhood that is changing drastically with an influx of high-end retail and housing. 200east59.com

ON DISPLAY Celebrated fashion designer Nanette Lepore misses the old New York— a place where artists and musicians meandered about, collaborating and creating in each other’s homes during a time when her own home base of the West Village was thriving with gallery openings every weekend. She missed it so much, in fact, that she and her husband, the painter Robert Savage, decided to open the doors of their own home to let admirers of art into their living room in a nod to that bygone era and its spirit of community. Here, Lepore gives Luxe the inside scoop on the alternative art venue she is also happy to call home. 917.855.9544 Why your own living room?

My husband and I wanted to give visitors the opportunity to see art in a more comfortable environment than they might in a traditional white-box gallery. It’s warm and welcoming, and most importantly, authentic. My family actually lives here. We’re in the West Village, just a few long blocks from the new Whitney.

Share your future plans.

Our inaugural exhibition, “Rose is a Rose,” channeled Gertrude Stein’s Paris salon. Our complete curatorial programming is still in the works, but right now we are looking at three or so shows every year. We’ll likely see more New York artists in future exhibits because there’s so much talent in this town; however, geographic association won’t be a requirement for entry.

Favorite art style/era?

My father, Jim Lepore, was an Abstract Expressionist and art professor; his work definitely played a role in the development of my aesthetic. I also have this fascination with the bohemian lifestyle he and his friends had—that whole era, really.

How does the gallery coincide with your fashion career? I don’t view the gallery as a departure from my fashion career as much as I see it as a complementary passion. There’s a natural connection between my art preferences and the aesthetic themes of my primary creative endeavor, fashion.

Any favorite works? John Gordon Gauld’s The Hired Man is a beautiful piece in the classical style—a still life in egg tempera—but that depicts both nuanced and overt references to contemporary subject matter. My husband and I had thought of keeping it, but it actually sold on opening night.

Advice for people looking to grow their own collections? Collect what you love! It doesn’t have to be a blue-chip masterpiece or even edition; when you fill your home with work that is personal to your tastes, only then can a unique aesthetic emerge. And it’s really rewarding once you find that distinctive personal taste.

When did you open? We welcomed our first guests at our store inside The Maidstone Hotel on Memorial Day 2015. Why did you choose East Hampton as the location of your Scandinavian-style store? Since Scandinavia is dark a big part of the year, we take summer very, very seriously. And so does the Hamptons. Describe the space. In the 1800s, the building that houses The Maidstone was used as a tannery and took in overnight guests while their saddles were being repaired. It’s a really unique retail experience—one could imagine a brand like Hermès opening a hotel above its atelier. We’re trying to create new ways to experience design and taking cues from history. austere.co/maidstone

ROOM REPORT Overnighters in Brooklyn have some new luxury digs to add to their room roster. In Williamsburg on Wythe Avenue, between 12th and 13th streets, The William Vale, named after the Brooklynite who owned the land in the mid1800s, is rising out of the heart of the trendy neighborhood. The 21-story, 250-foot tower features a funky, crisscross pattern of concrete beams on its exterior and will house shops, restaurants and a 20,000-square-foot pedestrian green space open to the public. In addition to the 180-plus guest rooms, visitors to The William Vale will be able to dip their toes into a rooftop pool with dazzling views of the New York skyline. When the hotel opens this spring, it will join the Wythe, a boutique hotel, and an additional 1,000 new hotel rooms slated for construction in 2016. thewilliamvale.com

Her company’s name is a nod to water, the single most important element in her work: quality goods made from natural dyes and fibers, and often sashiko-inspired needlework. WHAT: Get an inside look at Smith’s studio and the creative projects she’s currently working on—whether it be a process shot, a finished piece, workshop preparation or just an image she’s constructed while playing around with materials. WHY: Because Smith’s natural, raw and earthy images are a good reminder of how quite often simple is the most stunning. IN HER WORDS: “There is definitely an ease to my design style. I learned very early on that, when working with natural dyes, you have to let go of expected outcomes and get comfortable with unexpected results.”

ANTONIO PIO SARACINO

When it was just an idea… It took a few years just to find the right fiber and develop the kind of weave that I wanted. Luckily, a group of technicians at my mill got passionate about the project.

Design inspiration: Lighting is such an important aspect in everything I do so working with it in furniture was intriguing and unusual. The folding is the most important aspect because that’s where it releases more light; that’s where the oval shape and curves come from. There’s no shadow when you’re sitting so the perception is that your body is floating. It’s surreal; you lose the sense of dimension. It’s functional art.

About the design: I was making progress in terms of technology and started sharing the secret project with Antonio. When I was ready to upholster, I asked Antonio because it wouldn’t work on a Donghia sofa. The shape had to be designed with all the right curves to enhance the effect of light. The technology: It’s a great time to play with lighting right now because technology is revolutionizing the industry. The source of light is an LED, which can be dimmed by remote. The LED throws the light into the fiber optics that is woven into the fabric as wefts. A seam or staple would cut the fiber optics—limitation drove the design details.

Limited release: We did 12 sofas, each with a constellation relating to the Zodiac. For these, there are two layers of fiber-optic, one with stretched fabric that allows the stars to shine. We launched the product in Los Angeles, the city of stars, which was a fun coincidence, and the others will be released one by one, starting with one in Milan in April, throughout the following years in art and design fairs and galleries.

for Grace & Favor. Andrea Brooke, a British expat and the owner, embodies the spirit of a proper—if gleefully

eccentric—shopkeeper. She chats if you want to, doesn’t if you don’t, and stocks vintage furniture, eclectic textiles and a fabulous range of wallpapers from her own line, as well as Timorous Beasties and William Morris. All of the shops that I love have one thing in common: They share a personal aesthetic. What’s the phrase? Something about true beauty lies in authenticity. All of these places have their very own, distinct personalities. 6 p.m. For dinner, head back down to Battersby on Smith Street. It is invariably delicious. Head chefs and co-owners Walker Stern and Joe Ogrodnek are geniuses in the kitchen. Even though it opened in 2011, it’s still packed on weekend nights.

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.

CLASSIC COMEBACK

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. On trend: Chintz is the new ikat. And wallpaper (everywhere!).

MOOD SWING

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. Morning routine: Spending a couple of early hours with my daughter is the perfect way to start the day. 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. Desktop items: I like a clean work space; clutter slows me down. But I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t a stray paper or two lying around. Personal stationery: Letterpress by Gadabout. Mood board: Clippings of new artists and collaborations, as well as personal photos from my travels (picturesque landscapes, striking outfits I see on the street). Never too many… Pairs of shoes. Can’t live without… Chicago pizza. Guilty pleasure: Chicago pizza. On trend: I’m loving rooms painted entirely in one color—walls, trims, window frames, all of it.

WILD CARD

ASHLEY DARRYL, NEW YORK Trademark: I call my style “disciplined eclecticism,” because I love to mix periods while keeping everything minimal and not overly decorated. Morning routine: My dad always tells me “look good, feel good, do good,” so I try to start my day by dressing in whatever I feel comfortable and confident in. Dream office: My desk faces a large window overlooking Sixth Avenue; the hustle and bustle in the streets makes me excited everyday. Desktop items: A John Derian four-leaf clover paperweight and piles of lined notebooks. Personal stationery: Connor. Mood board: Flower arrangements. I love seeing bouquets with color palettes I may not have put together on my own. Never too many… Plants and flowers. Can’t live without… A cozy throw blanket. Guilty pleasure: Compartés chocolate bars and Diptyque candles. Sources of inspiration: Designers Steven Gambrel and Billy Baldwin (I look to their books often) and vintage furniture. On trend: I’m more into designing a home around patterns, colors and décor with longevity.

ANNE HEPFER

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.

GEORGIA ON OUR MIND THE PIECE: Georgia Chairs THE DESIGNER: Kate Spade New York FIND IT: katespade.com THE INSPIRATION: Flaunting Kate Spade’s signature bows and polka dots, the Georgia chair playfully collides the two elements with ultra-refined results—just one example of this much-anticipated debut collection with E.J. Victor.

I find this collection to be… Confident, playful and feminine. It has a timeless Hepburn-like quality without alienating those who lean toward masculine design. 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.

LAURA BURLESON LAURABURLESON.COM

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.

COM_LX6_Spotlight_158-164.indd 162

MEET ACUTE THE PIECE: Morehead Chairs THE DESIGNER: Highland House FIND IT: highlandhousefurniture.com THE INSPIRATION: An ode to the classic 1970s Parsons silhouette, the Morehead chairs are upholstered in a custom geranium weave by American Silk that is exclusive to Highland House. The retro vibe paired with the ultrasophisticated hand of the fabric is the perfect aperitif to the brand’s other luxurious offerings.

HIDE AND SEEK THE PIECE: L1499-01 Chair THE DESIGNER: Lee Industries FIND IT: leeindustries.com THE INSPIRATION: Modern design meets natural material in this hair-on-hide sling chair that proves simplistic form and comfort do go hand in hand.

HOLLISTER & PORTER HOVEY HOVEYDESIGN.COM

A Cartier Love bracelet got a fur coat... Was our first impression of Lee Industries’ insightful take on a classic sling chair. We’re so attracted to the mix of... Organic and industrial, soft and hard, furry and shiny. Those foils create aesthetic interest and can translate in almost any setting. This single chair can add... 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.

I would describe this daybed as… Swanky, bohemian, versatile, handsome and sexy. Studio Van den Akker exemplifies… Beautiful and clean-lined furniture steeped with historical references, yet the collection is extremely versatile for today’s modern lifestyle. This daybed speaks to the evolution of midcentury designs, paying homage while offering a fresh and modern point of view. Creating intimate conversational arrangements… Is key to a well-designed space. I think good design should be full of surprises—sometimes the surprises are obvious, other times subtle. The Charles daybed belongs… In a living room where it can act as the perfect anchor connecting two seating groups; because there is no back, guests can sit comfortably and face either direction. It would also be stunning in a foyer paired with a massive piece of artwork.

What are your favorite styles to work on and why? I lean toward transitional styles as do many of our clients. I love the unexpected combination of modern and traditional that results in styles that can last a long time rather than feeling dated. What is your creative process? What is your favorite part of it? Listening is the key to designing a room or home that will deliver the best results for an individual client. That information is then married with the perfect color palette and textures to bring our client’s vision to life. What are the key influences in your work today? We keep a close eye on fashion as so much of the runway transfers into interiors; we spend time overseas exploring the latest technologies; and most of all, our clients drive me to deliver exactly what they need.

COUNTRY CARPET & RUGS Country Carpet & Rugs has maintained a long-standing reputation as a trusted source for residential and commercial floor coverings, leaving generations of satisfied customers in its wake. “Trends in interiors are always on the move. We pride ourselves on being ahead of those trends,” says Harris Cohen, company president.

The feel of Country Carpet & Rugs is a warm one, which is no surprise as it has been a family-owned business since 1972. “Relationships are everything,” Cohen says. “The product needs to deliver, but without the relationship, there is nothing.” The brand’s sprawling 12,000-square-foot showroom is frequented by top designers and celebrities; especially with its ideal Gold Coast location and proximity to New York and the Hamptons. It takes only a glance to see that Country Carpet & Rugs delivers the best in all flooring products, along with handcrafted mosaic tiles, fabrics, furniture, window treatments and a multitude of other products.

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 220

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.

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 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 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.

TACKS

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

The old-timey good looks of the Heirloom sconce from Hudson Valley Lighting prove that great design doesn’t start on the front lines of trends. Inspired by memories of early 20th-century America and the onset of the Industrial Age, this fixture boasts architectural style in spades, in addition to quirky appeal thanks to its sweetly monogrammed on/off paddle tab switch. Pair it with an Edison-style bulb for picture-perfect retro style. hudsonvalleylighting.com

It’s hard to replicate the drama of a freestanding claw foot tub, but this pretty space by Boston designer Patricia McDonagh makes it look simple. Clad in a warm envelope of artistically veined Calacatta marble, the tub has a starring role in this simple, traditional bathroom. It’s yet another reminder that the right materials—in addition to a visually stunning bath filler—are all that’s needed to glam up a small space. patriciamcdonagh.com LUXESOURCE.COM / 241

Some of the industry’s best were asked to shed light on the current trends, techniques and technologies in home renovation. We learned that a greater connection to the inhabitants within and the surrounding environment is a guiding force, and high-tech systems, open space and luxurious finishes prevail.

THE PROFESSIONALS YOU HIRE SHOULD BE INTENT ON ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS

OPEN-AIR LIVING Today’s home is a place of gathering. The most popular trends in design and renovation convey this idea, from opening up spaces to the use of warm, neutral color palettes. At Plum Builders, this notion has been brought to life in The Modern Barn®, the firm’s own unique concept, through which principals Mary and Al Giaquinto achieve their clients’ frequent requests for “light, white and bright.” “Open spaces, big kitchens, gym spaces with natural

light and an attached bath, indoor-outdoor living and what we call a ‘summer kitchen,’ which is an outdoor kitchen with a fridge, ice maker, grill and counter space, are all in demand,” Al says. It has become increasingly common for the modern-day home to have high-tech systems integrated into every room, and as such, whole-home automation is the impulse behind many renovations. “Building codes in the Hamptons demand certain energy-efficient methods and materials,” Al says. “We have an in-house team member whose background is in mechanical engineering, so he stays ahead of the latest technology.” According to Mary, the key to a successful project lies in the very first step a homeowner must take after

“Smaller spaces are being opened up, often by removing walls between the kitchen and dining room, to incorporate broader entertainment areas.” –Paula McDonald Design Build

choosing to remodel: hiring the professionals. “Research methods and interview at least one design-build firm,” she says. “Have questions prepared and think beforehand about the answers you’d like to hear. A credentialed and experienced team with dependable and informed leaders will give you an entirely different product and overall experience.” Mary goes on to share that she and Al ask questions of their own, listening with intention and taking detailed notes. Finding the right team is possibly the most crucial decision to be made on a project, so careful selection and evaluation of collaborative ability is fundamental.

THE QUEST FOR BALANCE In Manhattan two truths often prevail during a renovation: space is limited and budgets are not. As such, interior designer Daniel Park, the principal and founder of his namesake firm Daniel Park Design, has had the opportunity to pioneer new trends and tirelessly pursue the latest and greatest aesthetics and techniques in his industry. On the topic of trends in renovation, Park is an expert. “Our clients want more open, communal environments, with kitchens fit for a chef and bathrooms fit for a spa,” he says. Of design elements, Park explains that the goal is to balance beauty with function and sophistication with originality. “Spaces that intricately mix materials in an architectural palette to create definition and

INNOVATIVE DWELLINGS From lighting systems with mood-related ambience settings to whole-home automation, technology is everywhere in today’s home, especially as entertaining becomes second only to accommodating day-to-day needs. Nick Harris, the vice president of marketing at Crestron, notes that the incorporation of smart-home services is a primary goal in any remodel. “When integrated properly, technology can offer convenience, security and entertainment, so it’s unsurprising that these amenities are requested more frequently each day,” Harris says.

and technology, he points to speakers hidden underground or in greenery as ways to enhance outdoor environments. With a variety of technologies available, solving everyday problems and finding ways to save time can be as simple as choosing a product.

THOUGHTFUL DESIGN When working with trends, it is important to know which are transient and which will become timeless. This is particularly true in a market like New York, where resale value matters and renovation costs are significant. As Paula McDonald of Paula McDonald Design Build notes, her clients tend to gravitate toward enduring styles, implementing ephemeral trends through smaller, more malleable details. “It’s easier to play with fleeting style on the interior side of design projects, because those things can be easily replaced,” she says. “Quick cosmetic fixes are a great way to update, as they can make a tremendous difference without the same level of time and monetary commitment.” Paula McDonald identifies painting, refinishing doors, changing light fixtures and replacing countertops and hardware as some of the best ways to renovate without committing to a complete overhaul.

The ideal fit. “The professionals you hire should truly care and deliver exceptional attention to detail,” Paula McDonald says. “They should be able to see the project through your point of view.” Enjoy the process. “Remember to have fun. After all, we are creating and delivering your vision of home and happiness.”

In areas like Manhattan, the implementation of sustainable materials and technologies can prove difficult, often requiring the retrofitting of products into older buildings. Still, Paula McDonald says green building practices and whole-

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 the waters of 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

NY_LX22_NATpickup_Post_258-271.indd 260

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.”

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

NY_LX22_NATpickup_Post_258-271.indd 271

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.”

would describe my work as having a heartbeat,” says John Procario of his custom-made bent-wood luminaires. “Each one has so much personality and as you move around them, the forms look like they are changing.” It’s not surprising for Procario to anthropomorphize his work; it’s something the Cold Spring native has been doing since studying sculpture at State University of New York at Purchase, where he began to conceptually think of wood as a metaphor for the human body. “Just as we push the limits of our bones and muscles, I enjoy pushing the limits of wood to create a sense of strain in the material’s gesture,” he explains. With, at most, only a rough sketch in his mind, Procario soaks or steams the wood then freeform bends it into one of his signature undulating shapes. The process is a delicate one, but thanks to months spent intentionally breaking wood—whether through oversteaming, a hydraulic press or simply his own strength—the designer gained a deep understanding of its structure and learned where to draw the line before hitting that breaking point. “Wood doesn’t always want to work with you when you are freeform bending so you have to work with it,” he says. “But I really enjoy that. Sometimes it takes you in new directions that would never have happened if everything was planned out.” While Procario gravitates toward white oak, ash and walnut—all flexible domestic woods— he hopes to start incorporating exotic varieties, as well as woods that resist outdoor wear so he can branch into oversize landscape lighting. The craftsman envisions a sculpture cascading over a flower bed or integrated around a tree. “I imagine seeing these beautiful wood items back in nature, and reappropriated in this way could be really exciting.”

istinguished by expansive lots and an abundance of verdure, Greenwich, Connecticut, is home to scads of stunning early-to-mid-20th-century houses reflecting European architectural styles. Such is the tale of one 1937 local residence whose original structure was inspired by Georgian Revival architecture. It was the home’s understated good looks and the cozy, intimate scale of its rooms—as well as its gracious perch on a 7-acre parcel populated with mature trees—that sparked the interest of the couple who purchased the property in 1993 for their family of three then-growing young boys. Although a minor remodel took place six months into moving in, it wasn’t until many years later—when the family was living in London—that they decided to completely renovate the abode. It was then that

they engaged interior designers Ellie Cullman, who had conceived the earlier interiors, and Claire Ratliff. “We chose Ellie because everything she does has a comfortable elegance about it,” the wife says. Cullman introduced the couple to architect John B. Murray, with whom she frequently collaborates, while contractor Brian MacDonald came on by word of mouth. Together, the team undertook a 2 1/2-year makeover that saw the original structure gutted, reconfigured and expanded. “This renovation was everything: It was brandnew windows, new air-conditioning and heating systems, and all new wiring,” says Murray. To accommodate visiting family and friends, a new guest wing was introduced, along with a new pool/guesthouse, wine cellar and two-story garage with an upstairs gym. The team also replaced the existing pool with a newly designed one,

In the parlor, an antique coffee table pairs with custom chairs upholstered in an Osborne & Little fabric; draperies boast the foyer’s same plaid by Jim Thompson Fabrics. The custom wool-linenand-silk rug is from Beauvais Carpets. Photos by Louis Faurer and Irving Penn dress the mantel.

Crisp white cabinetry and Carrara marble countertops keep things buttoned-up and airy in the kitchen. Warmth comes by way of random-width reclaimed-oak flooring and the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tiger-maple butcher-block top. Star pendants custom-designed by Cullman & Kravis offer an unexpected twist.

converted a screened-in porch into a library and spun the old garage into a game room. “It was a comprehensive renovation to say the least,” the architect quips. Ensuring the new spaces married well with the scale and character of the old ones was key. “We were not trying to unravel what was the stylistic approach to the house,” Murray explains. Thus, alterations to the façade were limited. “We did some modifications, such as adding a window to the entrance to bring more natural illumination into the formal receiving area,” he says. Murray also borrowed architectural elements from the original edifice and mirrored them in new sections. “We replicated the same bay window from the main structure and made it the centerpiece of the new pool house,” he says. Seamlessly integrating new materials with seasoned, weatherworn ones was a challenge.

“We spent considerable time locating the right brickand-mortar combination along with a very subtle white wash to ensure the additions had the same aged look,” MacDonald says. Inside, structural changes were constrained by existing 8-foot-tall ceilings. “In older houses you are somewhat limited by ceiling heights,” says Murray. So, taller ceilings were incorporated wherever possible, including in the new library, where steps leading down into the former screened-in porch were tapped to raise the roof to 9 1/2 feet. To create a more gracious flow throughout, the floor plan was reconfigured. Case in point: An existing tiny library with a fireplace and a disconnected stairwell in the formal reception area were commingled to create a spacious parlor with a fireplace and bar. “It’s a much more upbeat sense of arrival,” the architect states.

A sisal rug balances the formality of the dining room’s hand-stenciled walls and silk curtains. The circa-1970 gilt brass mirror is by Françoise See; the dining table and chairs are existing pieces, purchased during the home’s previous remodel. Crowning the space is an antique gilded-woodand-iron chandelier from France.

The rear of the home looks out over some of the property’s 7 acres of rolling land. Architect John B. Murray blurred the lines between old and new by replicating the original structure’s bay window (at left) and making it the centerpiece of the new pool house (right).

To create a feeling of casual elegance without being fussy, Cullum and Ratliff incorporated a neutral palette of pale beiges, greens and blues enlivened with pops of red throughout the interiors. “Even where we used a bit of color, it doesn’t scream at you,” says Ratliff. “In the entry hall, bits of red in the curtains and crimson accessories brighten the space without overwhelming it.” Furnishings are a blend of existing pieces: new, bespoke items and European antiques. “We did purchase quite a bit, but because Ellie had previously worked on the home, we were able to reuse much of what she previously bought,” Ratliff says. Imparting panache and personality are photographs from the owners’ collection of vintage and contemporary photography, which includes works by Aaron Siskind and Irving Penn. “The unexpected addition of the black-and-white photographs really adds to the mix,” observes Ratliff. Classic finishes, such as Carrara marble—which clads kitchen countertops—and reclaimed-oak plank flooring, ensure the look is rich and timeless. “The stained-whiteoak planks in random widths give a sense of warmth,” says Ratliff. Walls, many boasting light hues, are a combination of Venetian plaster, fabric, glaze and grass cloth. Stenciling lends an elegant touch as a damask design on the dining room walls and on the floors in the foyer. With its relaxed interiors and seamless union of old and new, the revived Georgian has become a cherished family retreat. “We very much wanted a family home— something livable, easy and welcoming—and that is exactly what we got,” says the wife. “We especially love the family room; it’s the heart of the house. But honestly, we just love every space.”

HARMONY FROM CHEEKY CHESS PIECE STOOLS TO ORB-LIKE BRASS PENDANTS, THE WORK OF DESIGNER ANNA KARLIN COMMUNICATES A SINGULAR MESSAGE: ECLECTIC REINVENTION OF THE TRADITIONAL. WRITTEN BY LACY MORRIS / PHOTOGRAPHY BY RENÉ CERVANTES

f you ask artist and designer Anna Karlin why everyone didn’t proudly display the knickknacks she handmade and gave out as a child, her answer is complete [faux] dismay. “They were never on show when I would pop around,” she jokes. Now, fully established in the design world, Karlin’s pieces have garnered the attention of both designers and buyers alike, occupying prime real estate in homes throughout the world. From the very beginning, British-born Karlin knew she wanted to design, and she set no limitations for her career. In the five years since she relocated from London to New York and established her studio on the Lower East Side, she’s worked in a variety of mediums ranging from furniture to graphics to set design. However, as Karlin explains, each discipline is the same process, and that is what keeps her excited to create. One outlet will inspire another, thus working simultaneously is necessary to realize the full potential of a single idea. In 2012, Karlin added product design to her repertoire with the debut collection of Anna Karlin Furniture + Fine Objects. “When I moved to New York, people were wonderfully receptive from the get-go and clients were so generous and referred me to all of their contacts,” she says. “My business grew in such an organic way. Then, I decided to launch a furniture line and completely jumped into the unknown; it was a huge learning curve.” Karlin’s appreciation of the important role New York has played in her success is exemplified in practice—local production is essential to her work. “If we don’t utilize the remarkable craftspeople we’re surrounded with, their skills will eventually cease to exist,” she theorizes. Karlin’s classic and decidedly playful objects utilize a common thread of materials: wood, brass, glass and ceramic. Each offers, she says, “perfect proportions—then the rest is a playground that is ever-evolving.” They are made for those who appreciate a bit of nostalgia, as well as a good-natured take on high design. “I want my work to act as sculptures in a room,” she says. “They don’t seek to dominate but should be a pleasant surprise or an unexpected element in an eclectic tableau, however clean or complex that might be.” Her childhood self would be proud.

Multidisciplinary designer Anna Karlin (shown bottom, left, sitting on one of her Chess stools) launched her product line, Anna Karlin Furniture + Fine Objects, in 2012. The work ranges from custom pieces, such as a handblown water-vessel-and-pipe system for a retail interiors project (opposite), to simple yet quirky décor like her Folding Form vessels and ceramic jugs (both shown at left), and Screw Top stools (bottom, right).

SECOND TIME AROUND DESIGNER JOE NAHEM REVISITS AND REINVENTS THE INTERIOR OF A NEW YORK CITY DUPLEX. WRITTEN BY LISA DAVIS PHOTOGRAPHY BY PETER MURDOCK STYLING BY BRENTON WOLF

I

t wasn’t that the first time around wasn’t good enough. Thirteen years ago, designer Joe Nahem created a haven for a then-childless couple on the 11th and 12th floors of a 140-unit family-owned apartment building in Chelsea, but over time, the couple added a girl and twin boys to their family. To transform the apartment into a larger, more baby-friendly space, the couple annexed an 800-square-foot apartment, creating a more spacious 5,500-square-foot five-bedroom home, and as the children approached the tween phase, “they wanted to update, upgrade and refresh,” says Nahem. The owners decided to undergo what one of them calls a “cosmetic renovation.” The catch: It had to be done while the family was away for the summer. Nahem and his team, who had also designed the couple’s Hamptons house, their corporate offices and their mother’s and sister’s homes, had 10 weeks to reinvent the apartment. “When they came home after Labor Day, it had to be 100 percent finished,” says Nahem. Well aware of the tight time constraint—they had taken on a project that would normally span at least six months—general contractor James Mansfield oversaw the operation. “To make it work we broke it down into multiple pieces and broke those pieces down with multiple subcontractors,” says Mansfield, who hired LUXESOURCE.COM / 295

European influences can be seen throughout the formal dining room. The large 1937 French buffet, crafted of rosewood and brass from Jean Royère, was purchased in Paris. On it are midcentury Tommi Parzinger candlesticks; a Line Vautrin mirror hovers above. The antique Grey Barr limestone tiles from Paris Ceramics were refinished.

four cabinetmakers, two flooring companies, two tile companies and two plaster companies. The latter were responsible for almost $250,000 worth of Venetian plaster. “There were about 12 varieties, colors, finishes and glazes of plaster, and we had to match the existing exactly while replacing all of it,” says Mansfield. A little healthy competition pushed the project ahead. The eight to 12 plasterers working there daily “turned it into a beauty contest,” he adds. “They each wanted to prove what an incredible product they could produce.” Because of the short time frame, there were no structural changes. Most of the existing furnishings stayed but were reupholstered, with new rugs and draperies splashing a different feel into each space. “Everything in the apartment was re-covered,” says Nahem. “Nothing was left in its original state.” This practicality made sense, not just time-wise, but also in regard to simple convenience. The custom-designed living room sofa, for instance, had to be hoisted in the first time, so instead of replacing it (and hoisting it out), they re-covered it

in Stark’s Lugano fabric in Rye and upholstered the cushions in custom-woven leather with Lurex. In the dining room, the midcentury gilded-iron dining chairs, designed by André Arbus, were also re-covered in leather with Lurex, but with black horsehair trim. “If somebody spills something, it’s a lot more practical than handmade silk,” explains Nahem. Taking an unexpected turn, the team sprayed the existing custom-designed table with an auto-grade high-gloss silver lacquer. “It’s what they use on Mercedes,” says Nahem. The breakfast room took its cues from the dining room, with the banquette also being redone in woven leather. A wood laminate was inserted in the custom-designed Corian table, and the walls and vintage Pierre Guariche chairs were re-covered. The dining room floors—antique Grey Barr limestone from Paris Ceramics—remained, but were refinished by Mansfield, yet the 18th-century French Louis XVI stone fireplace surround didn’t need a thing. The overall look is subdued but not restrictive. “We agreed we didn’t want to go overboard with color,” says Nahem.

For the living room, Fox-Nahem custom-designed a sofa with a handmade bronze base and a back upholstered in Stark’s Lugano Rye fabric while covering the seat cushion in Toyine Sellers’ customwoven fabric with leather and Lurex. The 1940s coffee table has a Dore bronze base and Saint-Gobain glass top. The untitled painting by Chris Martin serves as a focal point.

The table was custom-designed by Fox-Nahem, finished with a highgloss metallic silver automobilegrade lacquer. The 1950s Jules Leleu chandelier, with two types of glass, is painted gilt bronze.

The master bathroom had been clad in dramatic blue-and-beige Brazilian marble the first time around—with the Fox-Nahem team custom-designing the vanity and medicine cabinet—so little had to be done in the reinvention of the apartment. The sinks and faucet fixtures are by Waterworks.

Because the couple has a great art collection and every room on the ground floor opens out to the terraces, the interior had to stand on its own but not compete with the art and scenery. Silvery grays, soft blues and warm taupes dominate the home. “We wanted to keep a neutral palette but not boring beige,” says Nahem. “These are not boring beige people.” In the den, though—the only area closed off from the open plan of the first floor—they got a little bolder. “That was a room where we could get away with a little color,” says Nahem. The custom-designed sofa was reupholstered in Toyine Sellers’ custom-woven fabric with curtains to match in a lighter weave, and the Delfino armchairs got a skin of Italian suede to echo the wall panels; the pillows were covered in royal blue velvet. The biggest shift was reserved for the kitchen. “After 13 years and three kids, they felt the kitchen needed the most

NY_LX22_Nahem_294-307.indd 306

updating,” says Nahem. Cabinet doors were refaced in a high-gloss lacquer and the wood counters replaced with Glacier White Corian. The team replaced the sink, faucet and appliances, and put a stainless-steel backsplash beneath a window overlooking one of two terraces, both of which also received makeovers. “It was a very forestlike terrace,” says the owner—overgrown with trees. In response, landscape architect Alec Gunn and his team changed the planters and plantings, creating a pared-down look that still feels like an urban oasis. “It needed to be cleaned up and simplified,” says Gunn. “I want my clients to use the spaces, not just look at them.” When the family returned on Labor Day, they were thrilled. “It was like walking into a brand-new home,” the owner says. “I knew when we returned that I would love it just as much, if not more, than the first time.”

2/3/16 7:06 PM


Continuing the home’s recurring blue theme, the master bedroom walls are upholstered in Pierre Frey’s Antigua in Aqua. The custom rug is by Rosemary Hallgarten. The bed, custom-designed by Fox-Nahem, is upholstered in Kerry Joyce Textiles’ Diamante fabric. French ceramic lamps by George Pelletier with custom shades flank the bed.

Up another staircase, the roof deck offers those 360-degree views as if hovering over the ocean and bay. The lower level, at grade, accesses the two-car garage, and an elevator connects to the main floor. Extraordinary home in a brilliant location, a walkway and dock are allowed.

DESIGNER SHOW HOUSE This past November, Luxe Interiors + Design, the City of Beverly Hills and Friends of Greystone gathered to celebrate the VIP Preview of the Maison de Luxe designer show house at the historic Doheny Greystone estate in Beverly Hills, California. Over 500 VIP guests perused the reimagined rooms of this iconic estate while in sheer awe of its creativity, beauty and historic architecture. The Entertainologist, Lulu Powers, transformed the courtyard area into a decadent party atmosphere with dramatic lighting and luxurious furniture, exclusively provided by Frontgate. Guests enjoyed cocktails and assorted wines by Fantesca Estate & Winery indulged in delicious hors d’oeuvres. 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.
