Be inventive. When details are unusual, even subtly unusual, that’s exciting. “The kitchen is part of the décor of the overall home now. The details, the choices you make for it tell the story of what you love. Get excited about materials, and blend them in interesting ways. Consider open shelving, not just for pots and plates but for pottery and other statement pieces. Bring in artwork. Embrace clean lines, but make it dramatic. Details can be simple but sophisticated and surprising, too.”

Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth Winner of the 2011 Stars of Design Award for Interior Design

FINELY TUNED

UPTOWN OASIS

MODERNE MOMENT

RARE BLEND

ON THE COVER

A color palette taken from the light and fog seen on the river outside their windows creates a tranquil retreat for a young New York family.

Stately furnishings paired with an equally majestic view inspire a design scheme that is brought to life through a delectable range of textures and hues.

A glittering array of materials and patterns are layered together to form a uniquely Deco apartment in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park.

Seamlessly mixing traditional and modern elements is what this designer does best; exactly what her charismatic clients were hoping for.

Designer John Willey converted a formal dining room to a family friendly media room in an Upper East Side apartment. His custom-designed armchairs are upholstered in a rich blue velvet by Kravet and set off by the Xaviera Simmons painting behind them. Page 260

EDITOR’S LETTER

ARTS & DECORATION

W

hile recently browsing an antique shop in Flat Rock, North Carolina, I picked up an issue of Arts & Decoration magazine, circa March 1927. Charmed by its vintage photographs and retro appeal, I took it home to study its content. What insightful words of design wisdom I discovered in its pages. A few to take note of, and for us design devotees to keep in mind...

On Gardens: “Gardens, like everything else in the world, should be made with imagination as well as knowledge. There must seem leisure in the loveliness—and permanency. In short, beauty of a garden lies in looking lived in, by dreams at least.” On Room Composition: “It is one thing to be able to make up a pretty color scheme and quite a different matter to bring all the diverse elements of a room together in such fashion as to make a beautiful composition. People live in these compositions; move about in them. Therefore, they must of necessity be as sound in their structural composition as a group of sculpture and as lovely in their color choice and arrangement as is the work of the painter upon canvas.” On Architecture: “As American dwellings are built better, more permanently and more beautifully, they will be regarded less as real estate and more as homes, and with that change in attitude, the status of the home as the nucleus of society will approach more closely the older American tradition.”

PUBLISHER’S LETTER

fall. The past few months at Luxe Interiors + Design have been buzzing with excitement as we prepared for a flurry of events in the Tri-State Area. We were thrilled to co-host the opening of Antiques & Design in Stamford as well as the U.S. launch party for Londonbased flooring company Walking on Wood. A highlight of the season was curating the

panel at Bright Chair for the New York Design Center’s annual What’s New What’s Next celebration. In late October, we will host our first New York Show House in Glen Cove, Long Island. Originally built for Standard Oil heiress Lydia Pratt, this historic home will serve as a blank canvas for top designers, with all proceeds benefitting the American Heart Association. Back in Manhattan, we take our focus to SoHo, an international design hub that we are proud to celebrate in our Design SoHo feature on page 189. The Valcucine Showroom on Crosby Street will serve as a prime location for a panel coming up in November. We look forward to celebrating with you in the exciting months ahead!

RARE FIND

Event planning maven Jung Lee’s penchant for orchestrating elegant affairs led her to open her first brick and mortar shop in the NoMad neighborhood this past summer. Offering a discriminating register of tableware, one-of-a-kind objets, lighting and even floral arrangements—which are kept in an on-site greenhouse—Lee’s expansive selection is certainly a treasure trove. “My approach is to arrange tabletop and home décor from a fresh perspective,” notes Lee, who has appointed her store with unexpected displays that she hopes “promote innovative techniques for embracing products that would typically have a predictable use.” jungleeny.com

Created from a series of interconnected geometric shapes with metallic-finished cores, Gabriel Kakon and Scott Richler’s Welles light fixture is a welcome addition to the brothers’ exclusive line of furnishings. Since launching their namesake collection, Gabriel Scott, last year, the architects-turned-designers’ chic set has rapidly expanded—with plans to introduce a similar piece in the form of a sconce—and there are no signs of slowing down. “Our intention was to offer a flexible lighting system that gives decorators a maximum amount of possibilities,” notes Richler. gabriel-scott.com

^

CHANNELING CHANEL The enchanting lifestyle of fashion icon Coco Chanel inspired the conception of designer Christopher Guy’s latest line of luxury furnishings. Currently on display at the brand’s recently opened space on the penthouse floor of the New York Design Center, Mademoiselle is Guy’s personal interpretation of how the French visionary’s home would appear today. “When I ruminate on glamour, sophistication and contemporary elegance, Coco instantly comes to mind,” Guy says. Choosing to build the lifestyle collection as an assemblage that his clients would undeniably relate to, the set exudes the hallmark feminine qualities— curvaceous silhouettes, sumptuous upholstery and glitzy design details—for which the brand is celebrated. christopherguy.com

Q+A Luxe sits down with Tui Lifestyle’s Jason Atkins to discuss the latest introductions and what’s in store for the company.

What is the design mantra at Tui Lifestyle? To create beautifully scaled furnishings that work both independently and together.

At Tui Lifestyle, neutral tones and modern silhouettes define the brand’s overarching personality. Since President and CEO Jason Atkins’ 2008 launch, the company—which has a SoHo showroom in addition to two other U.S. locations—has evolved its metropolitan aesthetic to one that is “more simple, clean and timeless.” A recent partnership with Miami-based furniture and interior designer Michael Wolk further exhibits this transition, with Wolk’s emphasis centered on warm hues and streamlined contours. Scheduled to be released in early 2014, Atkins says “the collection will lend a novel aesthetic to Tui’s existing lines.” tuilifestyle.com; wolkdesign.com

Which piece is your favorite from the Haus collection? I adore the Verner coffee table (left); its clean lines and elegant scale complement the rest of the fabulous set.

What does the future hold for Tui Lifestyle? We’re working on creating a second distribution center in New York, which will bring an expedited turnaround time to the Northeast. Our custom options are also expanding, with the introduction of new fabrics and finishes that will work with all of our lines. 110 L U X E I N T E R I O R S

DEFINING MOMENT

How would you describe the latest collection? This fall, we’re thrilled to showcase the Haus collection. Its midcentury aesthetic was inspired by the simplicity of European design and the architectural conventions of Frank Lloyd Wright.

LIGHT SHOW

As the Milan-based brand’s premier stateside locale, Foscarini’s SoHo showroom has been met with a welcome reception since its launch earlier this year. Designed to highlight art and sculptural installations in addition to the company’s tony repertoire of indoor and outdoor lighting, the gallery-like space was envisioned by Ferruccio Laviani—known for his hallmark contemporary style and love of color—who has been an instrumental fixture at the company. The season’s latest introductions include ambient LED versions of Foscarini’s iconic pieces, several of which are featured here. foscarini.com

COLOR CORRECTED Italian design house Poltrona Frau recently unveiled 11 new sumptuously appointed furniture lines, all of which were inspired by the rich history of luxury automobile and aviation models. Roberto Lazzeroni’s Montera chair is a two-tone design—shown here in camel and turquoise leathers—set atop a rich wengestained ash wood base. Available in a vibrant amalgam of colorways, Montera embodies a sophisticated silhouette, which Lazzeroni achieved via an ardent focus on lightness of form. poltronafrau.com

Since 2001, the Jean de Merry showroom has proven to be an enduring muse to New York’s effervescent design realm, hosting an exclusive collection of French Deco-inspired furnishings and, most recently, textiles and glass pieces. An expansion of the stylish space is on the horizon, with plans that include highlighting the work of a new roster of international artisans, including Paris-based designer Jean-Louis Deniot—known for his unique continental spin on neoclassical style—all of which exude the strength of material craftsmanship for which the Jean de Merry brand is celebrated. jeandemerry.com


TABLE TALK Entertaining is the perfect occasion to tell a visual story, and with the table as protagonist, every piece that graces it also plays a supporting role. The deep coral and magentas of a Manuel Canovas fabric captured New York-based designer Eileen Kathryn Boyd and inspired her own narrative. A cast of tabletop accoutrements in lustrous finishes and rich jewel tones followed suit...

ENTERTAINING

“I find that many of my clients are attracted to the idea of using color but are fearful in applying it,” Boyd says. “Tabletop is a great way to have fun and experiment with interesting combinations.” The designer chose Anna Weatherley’s goldrimmed charger for its amethyst color and her scalloped white dinner plate for its bright note; the hand-painted Jaune de Chrome dessert dish serves as a complement to both, and the leopard-print Norbar fabric neutralizes the color scheme. Boyd layered Rogaska crystal throughout the smoky purple dining room and added delicate Hermès flatware as jewelry for the table—a play on the literal reference she made with an agate bracelet as a napkin ring. Alongside the fireplace, they make an inviting space even cozier in time for a fabulous fall get together. Placemats, Bagatelle in Violine; manuelcanovas.com.

CITY PLANNING

FERNAND LÉGER’S ENDURING ART PIECE DEPICTING ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN LIFE INSPIRES AN EXHIBITION ON THE MODERN METROPOLIS.

S

o many modern artists expressed their world through their experience of the street and the changes they were observing in the urban fabric. The modern metropolis was the central symbolic site of modernity. Léger: Modern Art and The Metropolis—the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s exhibition on the metropolis and the exchanges of influence between Fernand Léger and the artists, architects, filmmakers and poets

of the 1920s international avant-garde in Paris—makes its debut this fall. Running from October through January, the exhibition was inspired by The City (shown here), a formative work in 20th-century art, and one of the core masterpieces in the museum’s collection. “We wanted to focus on the metropolis to show how current modern art’s engagement with the world can be for today’s city dwellers,” notes exhibit curator Anna Vallye. “What’s so remarkable is that the city Léger painted almost 100 years ago is still completely familiar to us today. Of course, cities have changed since then, but there is also something profoundly enduring about Léger’s vision.” philamuseum.org

FIVE MINUTES WITH...

BON VIVANT

WITH A NEW BOOK CHRONICLING THE RESTORATION OF HIS FRENCH CHÂTEAU AND AN UPCOMING TABLEWARE LINE FOR ROYAL LIMOGES, L.A. DESIGNER TIM CORRIGAN STILL FINDS TIME FOR A LITTLE JOIE DE VIVRE.

IN YOUR NEW BOOK, AN INVITATION TO CHÂTEAU DU GRAND-LUCÉ... Many people think

that classic design is outdated and uncomfortable and I wanted to show that nothing could be further from the truth. Design is a pendulum and while it swings from trend to trend, it always returns to the classical because there is an innate sense of security in it. It is more forgiving, as it accepts that daily accoutrements are a part of our living spaces.

YOUR APPROACH TO DESIGN:

WHEN ENTERTAINING GUESTS…

None of what I do is too studied. I think a flea market treasure can be mixed in with an 18th-century console and you get to appreciate each of them more because of their relationship to one another. Who wants to live in a room that whispers, “Look, but don’t touch?”

It is important to make them feel as if they are in their own home. I always leave flowers, freshly baked goodies, magazines or books I think they will enjoy and a scented candle in their room to welcome them.

ARCHITECTURAL WHY UNDERTAKE SUCH A PAINSTAKING RESTORATION?

I love the secrets that you find in the stones of old buildings and the challenge of taking something that was designed for a different way of life and subtly transforming it for the way we live today. FURNISHING THE CHATEAU…

Was a real labor of love and I used an approach that I would advise anyone to: Buy what you love and it will somehow find its proper place. Clockwise from top: Corrigan’s French estate; Macassar Ebony & Ostrich Egg lamp by TC Home; a seating area of the master bedroom featured in An Invitation to Château du Grand-Lucé; an antique brass fire screen; the designer in his Loire Valley home.

MOST FAVORED

CALIFORNIA VS. FRANCE: For

me, Southern California is all about comfort, casual living and self- expression, but there is just something about the French respect for culture, history and tradition that really resonates with me.

PERIOD: Mid-tolate 18th-century France was such a remarkable time for architecture, because it held the highest level of refinement of the French aesthetic, but it was tempered by the age of enlightenment. PAINT A PICTURE CTURE OF TIME SPENT AT YOUR PICTURESQUE CTURESQUE CHÂTEAU: It’s like going back

in time to when life was all much slower and people really had the time to be with each other. I can think of no other place in the world I would rather be when I am afforded the luxury of time.

ABC Carpet & Home debuts new mesmerizing colorways to its Aquasilk collection of painterly rugs inspired by the ocean. Handwoven of sari silk, the rugs get their watercolor effect from being overdyed with layers of translucent hues. abchome.com

The inspiration for the handknotted wool and bamboo silk Topo rug by Tufenkian Artisan Carpets began with a topographical image, but as it progressed, the vivid design became more abstract and the name was shortened. tufenkiancarpets.com

Cococozy lends its lifestyle expertise to floorcoverings with an illustrative line for Capel Rugs. Hand-knotted in a Tibetan weave using semiworsted wool and dynamic pigments, the series includes this fun yet sophisticated Loop rug. capelrugs.com

Taking its cues from the distinct craftsmanship and intricate patterns of Mughal latticeworks from the Indian courts of the 18th century, Stark’s latest Tibetan rug features an elaborate motif that beautifully repeats in wool and silk. starkcarpet.com

When designer Cédric Ragot conceives an interior accent, such as this ombré rug he created for French atelier Roche Bobois, he perpetually aims to conjure a link between the functional and the conceptual. “Ponyo was actually one of my first forays into the art of rug design,” says Ragot, adding that he “endeavored to invite a harmonious blend of tones, which in turn, serve to warm up a room.” Featured here in a raspberry-centric scheme, the artfully devised floorcovering is handwoven from sumptuous New Zealand wool.

This season, Kyle Bunting’s effervescent hide-on-hair pattern work collides with South Florida design studio Britto Charette’s penchant for Art Deco architecture. The result is this hourglass stool, which marks the duo’s first venture into the home accessories arena. “I like this piece as a single side table, but it works best when used in multiples,” says Bunting. “The juxtaposition of the warm and tactile hide against the opaque base’s smooth silhouette is nearly the perfect combination of materials and surfaces.”

“This stool’s concentric circles remind us of an age-old tree trunk. Overall, we adore the clean look, especially after a recent trip to Japan where home décor is pared down and streamlined.”

+ To create the Sorenthia light fixture, Rhode Island-based designer Asher Dunn turned to the marvels of the ocean to find his muse. “I was intrigued by the crystalline nature of sea kelp when seen below the surface of water,” says Dunn, who took a cue from the arresting quality of light shining through the plant.

In the early 1950s, celebrated Italian architect and furniture visionary Gio Ponti experimented with several models of this exquisite case good. Designated with the simple moniker Chest of Drawers, the time-honored design far exceeds its humble name. Bestowed with a robust elmwood body and an ivory-finished front, the midcenturystyle piece is accented with handles in elm, Italian walnut, mahogany and rosewood, all resting on lustrous brass feet.


What may appear to be a straightforward yet luxuriously appointed chair swathed in a graphite-hued velvet is anything but basic. This plush beauty, a piece from the newly launched Luxury in Motion collection by Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman, is also a fully functioning recliner, silently extending at the push of a concealed upholstered button. “The graceful contours of this chair’s frame lend a sartorial element,” says creative director Phillip Jeffries. The jewelry-like Greek key motif at its base is the finishing touch to this well-tailored piece.

“While linear in form, this chair sits in motion. Timeless yet bold, I definitely can envision it in the bedroom of my Milan apartment. The Greek key detailing is an added bonus.”

Pictured here in her Larchmont, New York, gallery, Kenise Barnes curates exhibits that represent “investment-quality contemporary artists.” Opposite: Barnes moved her gallery to its new location in April of this year, allowing her space for two exhibition galleries, inventory storage and a private viewing room.


It’s always been about art for Kenise Barnes. At the age of 12, she decided she would become a painter; at 18, she chose art school; and after college, she moved to New York where she eventually became a

Outcrop is a new painting by David Collins, an artist Barnes has worked with for nearly her entire career, and is representative of the type of pieces generally seen at the gallery.

specialist in charge of contemporary art at Christie’s East. “It was the best education I could have had,” Barnes states. “The ’80s were a heady time in the art world.” These days, she runs her own gallery, Kenise Barnes Fine Art, which she founded in 1994 in Westchester. “Because my name is on the door, it is important for me to be personally involved in every aspect,” she explains. Barnes represents over 30 artists and has a palpable love for the work she encounters daily. When it comes to buying art, “a lot of people look for a piece for a particular spot in their home,” she notes. Instead, Barnes buys what she loves and carries the work around her home until she finds the perfect place for it. “My most recent purchase is a tiny 4-by-6-inch painting,” she says, adding, “there aren’t many spots left!” kbfa.com; 914.834.8077

LOFTY AMBITIONS

KENISE BARNES INSIDE TIP…

Don’t hard-sell artwork. It has to resonate with the buyer in some real way. There is no substitute for that. I LOVE WHAT I DO BECAUSE…

I wear many hats; I provide advice to my artists, curate about 10 exhibitions in my gallery annually, put together suggestions for art advisors and designers’ client presentations, and design catalogues and ad campaigns. WHAT IS INSPIRING YOU NOW?

Artists using amazing materials and language to express singular visions. We have artists working with encaustic, silverpoint, resin, ballpoint pen, digital media, and handmade paper, to name a few. I am totally inspired by the alchemy of it all. TREASURED ITEM:

The first piece of art I ever bought is a little etching by Jake Berthot. I went to his solo exhibition when I was around 25 years old, but the works were priced well out of my modest reach. Luckily, the dealer showed me some more affordable works on paper, one of which I happily carried home. LUXE INTERIORS

“We specialize in presenting objects that delight and amuse,” says Jamie Creel, co-owner with Christopher Gow, of Creel and Gow, an Upper East Side boutique brimming with curiosities from or inspired by nature. Located in

Creel and Gow travel the world to search for unique pieces for their distinctive shop. A recent find was Ardmore Ceramics in South Africa, whose Elephant jug is seen here.

the former stables of a historic townhouse, the boutique carries pieces that “embellish one’s life with originality,” Gow explains, “achieving our mission to fulfill the needs, wants and desires of our customers with inspiring finds.” Whether it’s fossils, minerals, global textiles or taxidermy animals, each piece is displayed on custom shelving, arranged to illustrate their unusual balance of color, texture and form as a collection. Sourced from the duo’s infinite travels, the cache is extensive and far-reaching—the library alone houses an endless array of small-scale novelties like glass hammers, stone boxes and sterling-silver shells—the feel both approachable and unique. “The world is really our shop,” says Creel, who mainly resides in Paris. Gow agrees. “Traveling to remote parts of the world to find new and interesting objects, this is our favorite part of the business.” creelandgow.com; 212.327.4281

JAMIE CREEL & CHRISTOPHER GOW I STARTED IN THIS LINE OF WORK BECAUSE…

CG: I had an eye for beautiful objects and working at Sotheby’s New York for nine years added that mercantile aspect. JC: Having been a shopper for many years, I realized there was something missing in retail. TOOLS OF THE TRADE:

RUG DESIGN

Surrounded by her designs in the Tai Ping New York showroom, Yasmina Benazzou constantly works to create products with a level of quality that will stand the test of time. Opposite: The Hemisphere I rug from Tai Ping’s Eclipse collection features abstract forms seen in Asian visual arts.

STYLE MAKERS


Yasmina Benazzou may have graduated from fashion school in Paris, but it wasn’t until she was asked to design rugs for the royal palace in Morocco that she changed courses. With such an early exposure to the highest quality materials, it’s no wonder she’s become the Director of Design and Creative Development at Tai Ping Carpets, a company known for custom rugs made of fine wools, silks and cashmeres. Recognizing that clients often feel constrained

Benazzou continuously looks to the work of Charlotte Perriand as inspiration. Seen here is the Tokyo outdoor chaise from Cassina that Perriand originally designed in 1940.

by other design choices when choosing a floorcovering, Benazzou is quick to give advice. “Don’t be shy,” she asserts, “Use color! Be bold!” In line with her emphasis on innovation, Benazzou is overseeing a collaboration with Brooklyn designers Chen Chen & Kai Williams, debuting this December at Design Miami. Also on tap, the coming year will mark the company’s first collection with Chinese-American designer Han Feng, serving to bring together Chinese and Western cultures through the art of handmade carpets. “My work requires me to always be inventive, travel to Asia and Europe and meet creative people,” Benazzou says. “Everything that I love!” taipingcarpets.com; 212.979.2233

R OYA L B E G I N N I N G S

YASMINA BENAZZOU MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW:

That I have moved almost 20 times since I was born. I have lived in a total of four continents: Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. DESIGN MUSE:

Charlotte Perriand is truly an icon. She was one of the rare women designers in the 1920s, and she believed that design could help people live better. Her furniture pieces are so beautiful in their simplicity. GREATEST INFLUENCE:

Fashion has a great effect on my work, perhaps because I was trained as a fashion designer. Innovative designs, advertising campaigns and cutting-edge merchandising capture my attention each season. FAVORITE DECORATING SOURCES:

I love scouring flea markets and antique shops in Paris, Milan or Brussels. WORK APPROACH:

I feel it is important to nurture our mind to sustain creativity. Being curious, thinking outside the box and embracing change are essential to success. LUXE INTERIORS

etting out to renovate the kitchen of their cottage-style home in New Canaan, Connecticut, a couple didn’t have to search too far for their muse. With Dutch and Belgian heritages, respectively, the husband and wife instinctively harked back to the enchanting

aesthetics for which their native lands are revered. “We wanted to make sure that we retained a very cozy, vintage European vibe, like that of an old bakery, for instance,” homeowner and designer Tessa Neleman-Pimontel explains. Another check off their wish list was to keep the space open (notice the pared down cabinetry; the simple ceramic subway tiling by the Bertazonni hood and stove; uninterrupted counter space), organized and flooded with light while retaining a sense of genuineness. “This kitchen adds an instant feeling of authenticity to our home,” she says. “It works out well as an open space time together. Every afternoon, the low-setting sun pours in, which adds to the whole mood we were aiming to capture.”

We were lucky to find the elements needed to achieve the style we had in mind all along of European elegance with an artistic bohemian flair. TESSA NELEMAN-PIMONTEL, ECHO AND MERCER

DISPLAY TYPE Opting for limited upper cabinetry, the Nelemans had to search for alternative answers to de rigueur storage questions. “The idea of the hutch was always in our minds, but it only came to fruition after we found the right pieces,” Tessa notes. “Nearing the final stages of the renovation, we took a trip to Mexico. We knew what we were looking for, but were very surprised when we found it in an old hardware store. We fell in love with the huge hutch and bought it right there and then.” To balance the rustic nature of the towering case, the homeowners kept it simple. “We like white as a base, but there are many touches of Delft and even Guatemalan earthenware in the mix. The key is to make sure that whatever is visible is positioned well (handles all turned the same direction, everything evenly spaced) and to edit, edit, edit. Keep only what you really need and use often.” For additional visual variety, they encircled the antique Swedish farm table with steel bistro chairs from Vagabond Vintage in Atlanta.

sure that my client used every square inch of her home, and that each space met her needs and represented who she was,” Stanley says. The resulting bathroom is a study in simple elegance, and the impact of letting just a few statement pieces have their moment in the spotlight: a sinuous freestanding Waterworks tub entices a leisurely soak; dreamy draperies in a blush tone coyly flirt with a coquettish portrait of Marilyn Monroe; two-tone marble floors are striking yet feel as if they’ve always been there; and finally, the crown jewel of the room, a polyhedron chandelier Stanley sourced from JF Chen in Los Angeles that would get the most pragmatic person’s pulse racing.

A luxurious bathroom always needs enough room for two people and beautiful materials such as marble and stone. It should feel as if you’re in a grand hotel. ESTEE STANLEY, ESTEE STANLEY DESIGN


CLOTHES QUARTERS What’s a designer to do when a client’s existing closet space simply isn’t sufficient for their wardrobe? Well, you relocate the master bedroom and transform the remaining space into a dressing room fit for a Rodeo Drive boutique, of course. “I like to think of closets as a fun playroom for women, so I try to make them big enough where you can have friends come over, hang out and play dress up,” Stanley says. “This typically calls for a seating area.” The designer brought in a custom chaise that offers her client (and her client’s fortunate guests) a place to sit and ponder the day’s sartorial decisions, while an antique rug from Lawrence of La Brea complements sleek custom cabinetry. “This is one of my favorite designs I’ve done,” Stanley says. “It’s every woman’s dream.”

A CONVERSATION WITH THE VISIONARIES OF

MANHATTAN’S DESIGN DESTINATION

The juxtaposition of beautifully aged 19th-century cast-iron architecture and uneven cobblestone streets with glamorous storefronts from the world’s foremost innovators in design represents what we love about SoHo— what we love about New York: contrasts, diversity, culture. In a city where change, indeed, is the only constant, SoHo has evolved from an agrarian community to teeming industrial district to the bull’s-eye of the international design world. Today, the neighborhood comprising lower Broadway is a thriving nucleus for international design in the spheres of art, furnishings, lighting, kitchen, bath, bedding, cabinetry, flooring and beyond.

There are many buying opportunities in the market and even some at discounted prices, but this is tightening quickly. Our prime inventory is getting depleted and in some instances, we are seeing bidding wars. That being said, knowing comparable sales and current data is key to helping buyers and sellers make educated decisions. What are your predictions for the season ahead? We have started to build some strong momentum and traction in the market. The sales volume and transaction data leads me to believe we are in the early stages of several years of growth.

JOE LUCAS

ENTRÉZ-VOUS INTERIOR DESIGNER JOE LUCAS WORKED HIS DESIGN MAGIC, CREATING A GRAPHIC GALLERY WALL WITH PAPERS ENVISIONED AS WORKS OF ART.

Los Angeles designer and one half of Harbinger LA, Joe Lucas created an entryway to remember using the sleekest fall wallcoverings. A “sucker for a salon-style wall,” Lucas began his dynamic scene with artist Sharon Lee’s debut line as his anchor. “The chic gray-and-saffron combo of Lee’s Chrysanthemum design caught my eye instantly,” he says. Building from there, Lucas approached many of the papers as he would art. “Kelly Wearstler’s provocative new Crescent design is a recent obsession, so it needed to be framed. And the sculptural Weitzner paper lent itself to being floated in an acrylic box, earning the focal point position in the space.” From a Holland & Sherry-clad flowerpot and a Wearstler-wrapped lampshade to an Innovationsupholstered stool, Lucas reveals that wallpaper knows no boundaries.

Naturally lured by wallcoverings that possess an assured straight-lined disposition, interiors devotee Sara Ruffin Costello unexpectedly found herself swept away by the season’s more abstract offerings. “I was drawn to patterns that appear out of focus; especially those peachy, warm tones,” she explains. “They feel less expectant than chevron or stripes (which I love) that continue to pop up each year.” After reveling in a veritable trove of papers, Costello sought to create a sunburst, turning to London-based moldings manufacturer Solomon & Wu for a bit of architectural encouragement. “The plaster moldings were a structured counterbalance to the loose, dreamy quality of the papers, and the dynamic sunburst shape has an artistic character to it, like a patterned color wheel.”

CASE STUDY GEOMETRICS AND BOLD PRINTS WERE THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THIS SOPHISTICATEDLY CLAD BOOKCASE ORNAMENTED BY INTERIOR DESIGNER PHILIP GORRIVAN.

“There is so much to be excited about when it comes to wallpaper,” exclaims New York-based interior designer Philip Gorrivan, who’s heralded his longstanding love affair with the material throughout his design career. His studious composition began with an unadorned bookcase that, according to the designer, left much to be desired. Presented with the latest lines, Gorrivan cloaked the back of the shelves with a subtle yet striking Farrow & Ball stripe and developed groupings of covered books in stylized vignettes, each layer telling its own story. “Dedar’s new boldly hued geometrics alongside Clarke & Clarke’s punchy floral patterns

“I tend to gravitate toward geometrics or patterns that aren’t so directional. I love products that are fearlessly gutsy. It’s fun to create a little tension in a space by introducing a wallpaper that appears to completely break all the rules.”

INTERIORS BY ROYALE

ask the expert HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR CLIENTS WOULD CHARACTERIZE YOU? Architects and interior designers recognize my out-of-the-box thinking and openmindedness toward new concepts. I am not confined to any specific style. Homeowners today are more willing to experiment and try new things. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE STYLES TO WORK ON AND WHY? I like using a traditional drapery rod in a contemporary space—a mix of classical and Postmodern. I like a space to look current and not dated in any way. WHAT IS YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS? First, I establish with the client exactly what they are trying to do with the window treatment and their functionality needs. Prior to designing, I assess all aspects of the home’s architectural elements to dissect any problems that may occur.

Functionality, clarity and beauty are characteristics that represent modern-day window treatments at their best. For Carl-Zenon Romanowski, principal designer and owner of Interiors by Royale, these principles are integral to each design endeavor. “The main purpose of the window treatment design is function and ease of operation,” asserts Romanowski. “Then, of course, the styling of it follows.” Romanowski’s work is both classical and current and above all, seamlessly blends with the décor of the home. “I think all window treatments should be harmonious throughout a home,” he says. “You don’t want to go into one room that is inspired by the 19th century, then another that is 20th and another that is 21st.” With an innate capacity for pragmatism, Romanowski prides himself on the ability to effectively design window treatments in tandem with the architect’s and interior designer’s plan. “Firstly, I look for things that may inhibit what they’re trying to accomplish for the window treatment, like location of crown moldings, AC vents, sprinkler systems and lighting,” he says. Beyond planning, designing and executing purpose-driven window shading and drapery, Interiors by Royale is a multifaceted workroom that manufactures nearly everything inside a home made of fabric—from daybeds to sofas to chairs to wallcoverings. The firm is also the parent company of American Decorative Drapery Hardware, a manufacturer and supplier of bespoke drapery hardware. “We fabricate and design drapery hardware products for fabric companies all over the U.S.,” says Romanowski. “There are no limits to our manufacturing.”

The simplicity of sheer Roman shades gives the space a finished look and is not the focus of the room.

In this bedroom, comfort and luxury is defined by the softness of the draperies and the elegance of an upholstered bed.

MILANO SMART LIVING

ask the expert HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR CLIENTS WOULD CHARACTERIZE YOU? Innovative, thoughtful to their actual needs, even if they weren’t aware of them, and very knowledgeable in this unique field of furniture. HOW DO YOU DEFINE A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT? One that satisfies a client more than what he ever thought was humanly possible and creating solutions that sounded like rocket science before becoming acquainted with our designs. WHAT LED YOU TO YOUR CURRENT PROFESSION? Moving from the legal sector as a lawyer into the design field was by chance due to several properties I own in London that were rented out on a short-let basis, which led me to seek design solutions for my own needs.

Beautifully functional, the sofa beds of Milano Smart Living signal a new age and fresh start for the once-snubbed piece of furniture. Founded upon the propositions that sofa beds, aka “sleepers,” should look good, be comfortable and have the ability to be broken down into smaller sections, Milano Smart Living is changing the way people view the couch one blissful rest at a time. “You can sleep on these beds every single night,” asserts Gideon Back, the company’s president and CEO whose quest for a comfortable sofa bed was long unfulfilled. “After almost giving up and spending vast amounts of monies on high-end sofa beds that simply could not deliver the needed product, I stumbled upon the Milano brand in Italy and ended up purchasing 10 units,” he says. “They have been used on a daily basis for the last 12 years—they’re simply fantastic.” Designed with the urban dweller in mind, Milano Smart Living’s furnishings are carefully—and ingeniously—crafted to address all the needs of a small space, starting with getting the furniture through the front door. “We work vigorously on designing smart furniture that can fit into small spaces,” says Back. “The furniture can be completely disassembled and therefore can fit through any doorway and into any space.” Once assembled, the sofa beds operate in a one-touch operation without removing any cushions. “There is a need for intelligent furniture for today’s contemporary consumer,” says Back. “Milano creates comfortable, real sofa beds that open easily without removing cushions or pillows and use real mattresses.” Giving apartment owners a reason to have faith once again in sofa beds and wall beds, Milano Smart Living has carved a niche in the market where sleek, Italian design meets utter functionality.

Milano Smart Living’s ergonomically designed sofa bed, the Portofino, maximizes space and offers a comfortable lounging experience as a bed and a sofa. The mechanisms responsible for transitioning between the different functions of the sofa bed are user-friendly.

By simply rotating the back cushions forward, the Portofino converts into a conventional bed without the removal of any cushions. In addition, all bedding and pillows can be kept in the sofa, and all covers are completely removable and washable.

The Minuetto transforms from an elegant console into a large dining table for up to 14 people. It is available in various widths and finishes; and with its neat lines and geometric design, it easily adapts to different environments.

“We try to make each product newer and more intelligent than before, which is not easy since we have come such a far way and are constantly listening to our consumers’ needs. We learn so much from it.” –GIDEON BACK, PRESIDENT AND CEO

The Metropolis’ multifunctional library rotates effortlessly to reveal a queen size bed meant for everyday use and is available in a variety of finishes with the option of integrating a flat-screen television.

Chic and convenient, the Metropolis transforms from a fully functional library and shelving unit into a comfortable bed in seconds. The space-saving wall bed is an elegant and practical solution to small living areas.

Andrea D’Alessio, Jr., the visionary and driving force behind each D’Alessio-designed and constructed home, combines his extensive masonry skills (which he began honing at age 14) with an encyclopedic knowledge of 18th- and 19th-century classical design to create masterpieces. “My inclination is toward classical architectural style, more or less derived from the principles of Greek and Roman architecture of classical antiquity,” shares D’Alessio. “The thinking produced by the neoclassical movement is a revival of these styles and spirit of classic antiquity inspired directly from the classical period, which I’m reinterpreting with state-of-the-art amenities.” With a strong track record of successfully designing and building complex and historically significant custom homes, D’Alessio adopts a hands-on, personalized approach for each project. “My company was built on the foundation of one-on-one relationship building,” asserts D’Alessio. “This philosophy is critical to my design process—one in which the client and I are in a continuous collaboration until their unique vision is completed.” From 21st-century castles to European châteaux to historic restorations, D’Alessio’s iconic designs have graced the world over, including Qingdao and Beijing, China; Abuja, Nigeria; California; Florida; New York; New Jersey; Texas; and Pennsylvania.

SFA DESIGN

WHAT ARE THE KEY INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK TODAY? Inspiration comes from the most unexpected places. Whether it’s the British racing green on a classic car or street art sprawled across the side of a building, we are influenced by the world around us. HOW DO YOU DEFINE A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT? We define a successful project by a client’s satisfaction with their home, hands down, every time. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE STYLES TO WORK ON AND WHY? When it comes to design, I’m of the opinion that we don’t need to reinvent the wheel, but instead, make it a little more fabulous, like Coco Chanel did when she took men’s clothing and tailored it to a woman’s shape.

Long synonymous with sophistication and glamour, Smith Firestone Associates (sfa design) is a recognized leader in the area of innovative and chic interior design. The eponymous firm, led by design luminaires Sue Firestone and Kara Smith, was founded in 1996 to provide comprehensive design services for private clients, property developers and hoteliers. Today, the firm, with locations in New York, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, has carved a unique niche in the market where personalized design meets expectation. “We collaborate closely with our clients to define their style and the essentials,” says Smith. “Once we have the scope of the project, we immediately start designing. We pour over materials, color, schemes and furniture layout—everything under the sun—and present them with various incarnations of what the space can be.” Luxurious, bespoke and unique, the living spaces envisioned and executed by sfa design are a direct reflection and elaboration of the client’s tastes and culture. “What is unique about our firm is that we don’t define ourselves by a specific style. With each new project, our focus from start to finish is to fully understand our client’s vision and use our experience to bring that vision to life,” says Smith. “As designers, we find inspiration from various outlets, but our clients are the most influential part of the design process.”

Performing a complete renovation on this Hidden Hills estate, sfa design was able to fulfill the client’s vision and create an ultra-glam, Parisian-chic home, complete with a space for entertaining but with a comfortable ambience fit for a family.

This estate embraces a Hollywood Regency style with a classic French flair. The décor is an eclectic mix of romantic rococo-inspired pieces and patterns, mixed with contemporary, abstract art and luxurious finishes and materials.

sfa was selected to be the designer for Delos Living, a real estate and development firm at the forefront of luxury wellness real estate. The most recent project, the Vetrina Townhouse, will employ scientifically based wellness techniques and products that will contribute to respiratory, cardiovascular and immune health.

“Designing someone’s home is an inherently intimate process, and many of the relationships we form continue long past installation. We view many of our returning clients as family.” –KARA SMITH, PRESIDENT

With the design for the new Vetrina townhouse, sfa’s designers uphold their commitment to LEED awareness as they focus on the latest green design services, products and developments.

Inspired by the dramatic imagery in Palladio’s Venice, this historically accurate home is elegant with its stone-inlaid wood floors, fireplaces hand carved in Italy and limestone arches. At the owner’s behest, no compromises were made on authenticity or quality.

ask the expert WHAT IS YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS? It starts with an in-home consultation. Our goal is to understand the client’s storage needs and lifestyle to help the design take shape. Next, we begin the engineering and manufacturing process. It happens locally, so projects can be installed in a matter of weeks. WHICH PROJECTS HAVE BROUGHT YOU THE MOST SATISFACTION? I love the variety of working in the Highline and Chelsea neighborhoods in Manhattan. It has diverse architecture, a modern European influence and a multicultural population. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT? This summer, transFORM opens a new showroom at The New York Design Center. We will have 20 room settings, including closets, dressing rooms, home offices, wall beds, library units, wall units and pantries.

For nearly a decade, transFORM has been one of the design industry’s best-known tastemakers in the realm of custom crafted storage systems. With a focus on premium materials, rich finishes and luxurious hardware—coupled with designers who offer a mastery of spatial configuration and exceptional customer service—transFORM holds true to its namesake, transforming cabinetry design and organization into a true art form. “I love taking a traditionally styled space with a formal look and giving it an update by mixing in modern lines and color,” enthuses senior design manager Rozalia Kiss. “In our design work, we encounter people who need to fit their modernized style with their traditional home. Using our vast selection of colors and hardware and with a little imagination, we enjoy putting a contemporary twist in their home and smiles on their faces.” With a passion for exploring modern art in new and revelatory ways, transFORM offers a unique perspective on how to maximize space beautifully. The showrooms, located in New Rochelle, New York, and in The New York Design Center in Manhattan, function as working galleries with sculptures, paintings and photographs by regional artists interspersed with engaging vignettes of closets, home offices, wall units, wall beds, pantries and laundry rooms. “The New York art scene has a strong presence in our showroom through transFORM Gallery and is a key influence on our customers and our designers,” says Kiss. “All transFORM projects are custom, so each design is a unique opportunity to be inspired and forward thinking. Being surrounded by the individuality of each piece of artwork brings us to that new level of creativity.”

This small space was converted into a home office. A recessed panel door and drawer faces as well as eye-catching molding create a timeless look; and cabinets and wraparound shelving provide space for books and collectables.

Work in comfort with this classically styled and custom-designed home office and library. Wide file cabinets, LED task lighting and concealed wire management help keep you organized and on task.

SHORELINE POOLS, INC.

WHAT ARE THE KEY INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK TODAY? Inspired by outdoor living and improving our clients’ lifestyles, we don’t just design swimming pools; we create entertaining spaces featuring gourmet kitchens, fireplaces, custom lighting and in-pool lounges. WHAT IS YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS? Our creativity depends on how much we know about our clients. The more we learn, the more we can offer in terms of creative solutions, new technologies and customized features. HOW WOULD YOUR CLIENTS CHARACTERIZE YOU? Our clients consistently compliment us on being extremely thorough and performance driven with a focus on precision and exceptional quality.

David Lionetti credits his father for the invaluable experience of growing up in the heart of a family-owned business. What began as a small swimming pool construction company in 1969 has transformed into Shoreline Pools, a premier company that delivers superior service and craftsmanship to the entire Northeast Coast and New York Tri-State Area. Shoreline and its highly trained technicians and engineers set the standard for service, quality and innovation as displayed by an impressive portfolio of decadent residential projects throughout prestigious Westchester and Fairfield Counties. “Our award-winning designs reach from Westchester County to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket to The Bahamas and beyond,” says Lionetti. With a pride-fueled passion for service, craftsmanship and tradition, Lionetti and the Shoreline team dedicate themselves to their customers and their craft. “We typically describe our work as ‘engineering, design and chemistry in perfect balance’,” he admits. Regardless of the size of the project, or the location, Shoreline Pools always focuses on one thing—creating swimming and outdoor entertaining spaces that complement their client’s lifestyle while enhancing the natural landscape of their property.

“Our unique penchant for precision, attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is unmistakably Shoreline.” –DAVID LIONETTI, OWNER AND PRESIDENT

O

ne renowned resident of Gracie Square—a cluster of neo-Gothic, circa 1929 buildings facing Gracie Mansion, the New York mayoral residence—was composer Irving Berlin. He reputedly penned his

famous musical Annie Get Your Gun in this graciously proportioned apartment situated in a building designed by famed architect Rosario Candela and co-architect William Lawrence Bottomley. Indeed, when it was purchased by a fortysomething Philippines-born couple with three young girls, it still boasted stained glass doorway transoms with musical themes that Berlin most likely commissioned. But the interiors seemed dark and stuffy. Fortuitously, through friends, the couple met designer Celerie Kemble and her associate, Heidi Bianco. “I liked Celerie and Heidi because they were so easy to talk to,” the wife says. “Celerie also has three kids, and I wanted a person who knew how to decorate and furnish a home that is beautiful and functional at

the same time. I wanted most of the walls childproofed so they were okay to be touched by little fingers with chocolate crumbs.” What Kemble and Bianco did, in fact, was not unlike reinterpreting a beloved musical score. “The client wanted more femininity and spunk while also incorporating modern pops,” explains Kemble, “so we had to carefully measure where to use that aesthetic so as not to become incongruous with the traditional lines of the space.” The entry, swathed in Gracie wallpaper, is the most formal space and serves to ground the home in the building’s history. A left turn brings visitors into a vast living room-dining room, part of an enfilade of parkand river-facing rooms bracketed by a library and a kitchen. This stately lateral spread became the overture that introduces the score’s leitmotifs.

Empire City Construction revamped cabinetry in the kitchen and mixed a custom floor stain. Heidi Bianco of Kemble Interiors designed the new range hood, fabricated by Work and Design in Brooklyn.

“She is such an effervescent person that we wanted to create a home as refreshing and luminous as she is,” says Kemble. “And the light and fog off the river went a long way to informing our palette of gray pearl, soft aquas and flashes of citrus yellow, like sun glints on water.” What about the husband? “He’s surrounded by four women, so it was a losing battle,” Bianco jokes. But they compensated by lacquering the library (“man space” says the wife) deep indigo. Childproofing came in the form of high-gloss walls that wipe clean and add luscious texture to the architectural envelope. Variations on these themes continue in the private quarters, with brighter shades dominating. The hallway’s lacquered linen walls, for instance, are citrine. “When you do these fancy finishes, it’s always a challenge,” says builder Andrew Galdau, who, with partner John Carley, executed these surfaces. “We had to skim-coat and sand the walls five times, shut down the entire project for several days to let the dust particles settle, then apply seven or more layers of paint—buffing walls in between—to

give it that glass-like finish.” The duo also restored herringbone floors throughout and, in the kitchen, disassembled cabinetry, sanded and glazed it, then mixed a custom gray stain for the floor. “We didn’t want the family or guests to feel as though things were too delicate or forbidden,” adds Kemble, “so we intentionally mixed textures to strike a balance that was neither too glossy nor too matte.” Ergo, the quietly shimmering fabrics, touches of glimmering glass and muted metals. This balance also permeates the furnishings—a large family-friendly living room sofa is paired with tufted, very stylized armchairs, and occasional 1960s and ’70s accent pieces ramp up the apartment’s subtle polish without tilting toward glitz. The effects stay with you like, well, the hummable refrain of a popular melody. Music to this family’s ears. L

A

bicoastal New York couple, having just renovated their apartment on the Upper East Side, were happily settling in. Their home, conveniently situated near their children’s school, was now perfectly designed

to their taste. As fate would have it, it was just at that moment when an upstairs neighbor approached them with an offer to buy their apartment. They certainly weren’t eager to depart their newly refreshed environs, but the offer was simply too enticing to refuse. So they made the sale and bought a larger apartment several blocks away, in a stately pre-war limestone building on Fifth Avenue. “Only in New York,” says John Willey, the couple’s interior designer, who is accustomed to the unpredictable events that unfold in the world of white-hot New York real estate. The couple’s new apartment was spacious but stodgy. “It was quite heavy, with lots of chocolate browns and tans,” Willey says. “It had big swag draperies that closed off the best views, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art across the street.” The goal, explains Willey, was “to lighten it up and give it a more playful and youthful character. They love color and a fun, jazzy quality.” The couple wanted to use the

But given that they were starting over, they decided to switch up the color scheme. For the new apartment, Willey chose a palette of gray, black, pale blue, ivory, and pops of cranberry. “I had the mahogany furniture ebonized,” he says. “The upholstery—which was in creamy ivories, aubergine and turquoise—we covered in silver, pale blue and charcoal.

With the help of builder Ted Thirlby and his team, Willey reworked the floor plan slightly to better suit the family’s needs. The home had plenty of closets but, as is typical in a century-old building, they were tiny. “The previous design was a little awkward, in terms of the way the closets and the hallway were laid out,” Thirlby says. “So John cleaned it up to make it flow a little better, and we rebuilt the closets.”

The team also cleaned up the architecture to bring in the light from Fifth Avenue and to give the apartment a more youthful energy. The design throughout was intended to best showcase the couple’s evergrowing art collection, which includes pieces by George Condo, Louise Bourgeois and Harland Miller. Perhaps the most labor-intensive project was taking the apartment’s somewhat dreary entry hall and transforming it into a striking gallery featuring broad stripes of limestone in smoke and champagne, with matching faux paint that continues the striped effect up the walls and across the ceiling. “It was an out-there idea, but I had a brave client who let me go with it,” Willey says. “The goal was to create sort of an abstracted Chinese puzzle box for a ‘wow’ effect when you walk into the apartment.”

Adds Thirlby, “It was a technical challenge, because the walls had to be perfectly flat and plumb, so we had to apply plaster over the existing walls to get them just right. If they were a little off, those stripes would show the inequities in the walls.” In the end, the entry gallery—and the entire home—took on a visually distinctive yet serene vibe. “It’s all cool colors,” Willey says. “When you walk in, it’s very calm and soothing, which is the entire point of an apartment in New York City. You want to have a dip in an oasis after coming in from stressors of the crazy city.” L LUXE INTERIORS

A

s a child visiting Radio City Music Hall for the first time, Howard Williams found himself instantly enamored by architect Donald Deskey’s Art Deco masterpiece. “To me, it epitomized all the glamour

and excitement of New York City,” says Williams. Decades later, Williams is now the proud owner of High Style Deco, a gallery he opened in 2004 selling furniture, lighting, art and accessories from his favorite time period. Coincidentally, his apartment in Gramercy, once inhabited by a star of the Ziegfeld Follies, is just as ritzy. After working with designer Norman McCrary on two previous apartments, Williams didn’t think twice about contacting him when he made the move to his third apartment in the city. And though both homeowner and designer saw the Art Deco movement as one of the most dazzling design periods in history, they recognized that like many things that tend to be showstoppers, a little editing goes a long way. “To paraphrase Coco Chanel, no outfit is complete without first taking off one piece of jewelry,” says McCrary. Before McCrary could truly start, an architectural “tightening” was in order. Helmed by Ann Macklin, the gut renovation cured the Gramercy apartment of a dreadful case of neglect: scuffed vinyl floors, dated Formica cabinets and stagnant, closed-off spaces. Once it was McCrary’s turn in the apartment, he stopped at nothing to capture the “wow factor” his client was hoping for. LUXE INTERIORS

“We decided to go mod and sexy for this apartment,” McCrary explains. Amber lighting casts a warm glow in nearly every nook and cranny, and the seating’s graceful curvy lines invite guests to linger. Elsewhere in the apartment, McCrary’s vision shows up in the architectural details, including a monumental slab of sleek onyx that transforms a fireplace surround into an elegant statement piece, as well as concave columns in the living room that are finished with a rich ombre design. In the foyer, an impressive granite-mica wallcovering by Phillip Jeffries tows the line between grit and glam. Describing the dynamic interplay between these unique elements, McCrary notes, “There’s a fluidity to the shapes which enables the eye to move effortlessly around the room, stopping to enjoy the art or the sculptural quality of the lighting. The larger architectural elements, provide a calm place for the eye to rest.”

To keep the space from feeling one-note, designer Norman McCrary added warm brass counter stools by EG Cody clad in a racy lizard vinyl for good measure.


Fit for a meeting or a casual meal, the living room’s center seating area features a Karl Springer lacquered goat-skin pedestal table surrounded by leather-covered 1950s Billy Haines game chairs atop a Kyle Bunting hide rug. A vintage Poliarte chandelier adds movement and sparkle to the otherwise black-and-white vignette.


Adjacent to the living room’s fireplace, a Vladimir Kagan Erica chaise and Yin and Yang ottomans serve as a smooth contrast to Brutalist-style Poliarte sconces and a Louise Nevelson sculpture called The Dark Eclipse. The painting is also by Louise Nevelson and is entitled Girl with Cat.

Some edits were necessitated by the building’s 80-year-old architectonics. For instance, the mere thought of laying beautiful white-glass tile floors in the foyer and kitchen required the advice of a structural engineer, who ultimately axed the plan to continue the tile installation throughout the dining room. Builder Andrew Mullins seized the opportunity to turn this kink into a green affair. “We placed a soundproofing product made of recycled tires under the tile floors and refinished the existing oak floors in the dining room instead of putting in entirely new flooring,” he says. For other, more festive, reasons, the dining room is especially important to the homeowner, who decided to turn an existing second bedroom into an alluring space where he could, for example, fête his parents’ 50th wedding anniversary with friends and family, as he did last fall. Although the golden Venini chandeliers, epic black-lacquer sideboard and croc-patterned chairs create a rich alchemy that seems more befitting of monumental celebrations than Chinese take-out for one, Williams insists that the room is intended for daily use. “I grew up in a house where we used certain rooms only on special occasions,” he says. “This place is too beautiful not to be lived in every single day.” L

The living room captures the homeowners’ wish for understated elegance. A custom Saladino-style sofa is upholstered in brown linen by Elitis, and an ebonized directoire chair and French sycamore daybed are from Jon Vaccari Design in New Orleans.

ago, our taste was more traditional, but in our last Manhattan apartment where we lived just before a short stint in Houston, we went almost too modern,” says Jenny, now a stay-at-home parent. “This time around, we wanted a combination of clean lines with some traditional elements.” They got just what they were looking for—in the Short Hills community of New Jersey—when they came across a center-hall colonial originally designed by Thomas Baio. According to Baio, the cross section of American architectural styles including ranches and colonials already prevalent in the neighborhood served as inspiration for the home

that the couple ultimately fell in love with. “The goal was to design a home which fit within the established vernacular, yet provided modern amenities and a more open floor plan. The interior reflects a transitional style which has less ornate moldings and a clean backdrop for the furnishings to play against,” he says. Although the double-height foyer sets the architectural stage for the luxuriously scaled living and dining rooms that flank the entry, it was Houston-based interior designer Katie Scott’s playful pairing of a gilded Louis chair with an acrylic side table that established the tone for what lies within. “The big bold stripe of the chair makes the formal piece more youthful and fun,” says Scott, who seamlessly blended the couple’s penchant for tradition with their love of fashion. “When it comes to my wardrobe, I’m a minimalist, but I love to update my look with hip, edgy pieces that no one else will have,” says Jenny, who proposed a similar concept for her house. “That’s part of the reason I picked Katie. Although the exterior of our home blends in with the rest of the neighborhood, the interior is completely unique to us.”

“I love grounding a space with antiques,� says interior designer Katie Scott about the antique French gilded stools topped with gray velvet cushions in the family room. The sofa and chairs from Custom Creations sport Castel linen and the Khotan rug by Stark Carpets finishes the look. Adding a touch of color is an art piece by Roi James purchased at Laura Rathe Fine Art.


Scott used brightly colored custom cubes by Summit Interiors upholstered in solid Dedar fabric to fill the void beneath the bamboo and marble-topped console table from Baker. The artwork above is by Meredith Pardue and is available through Laura Rathe Fine Art in Houston.

of surprise in her projects, seen in this case as an antique Portuguese stool upholstered with zebra hide. “I use textures to add a level of luxury and richness,” she says. Another carefully orchestrated merger occurs in the dining room where an oval walnut table grounds the space, yet the whimsical pink and gray magnolia wallpaper creates a showstopping mural-like effect on the wall. Rosy splashes repeat on the pillows in the family room, where the linen-slipcovered sofa and chairs encourage lounging, and the mirrors set in painted wooden frames provide an elegant touch. “The mirrors are LUXE INTERIORS

Making quite the statement as you round the bend from the entry, the Magnolia Grey Lustre wallcovering by Cole & Son from Lee Jofa sets a festive tone in the dining room, which is magnified by the crystal chandelier from Corbett Lighting. The classic Yves dining table, St. Germain side chairs, and the Alabaster disc lamps are all by Baker, and the silk and mohair rug is from Carol Piper Rugs.


Scott looked to designer Jan Showers’ penchant for glamour, using the Mercer bench from her collection and vintage Louis XV fauteuils purchased from her showroom to add romance to the master bedroom. Also featured is a tufted linen headboard from Indulge Decor in Houston, as well as Jacklyn mirrored side tables and Tutti Venetian-style mirrors from Plantation.


Adjacent to the master bedroom, the home office features an armchair from Jan Showers upholstered in a luxurious heather silk. The sawhorse desk and white leather wingback chair are both from Williams-Sonoma Home, and the wallpaper is the Verve pattern by Harlequin, purchased through Culp Associates.

what I call a ‘hands-off antique’ because they are hanging on the wall and therefore less likely to be damaged,” quips Scott; she continued the color palette in the adjacent kitchen with pink and purple cubes that work as extra seating at the breakfast table. The edginess of the first floor gives way to the more tranquil second-floor master suite where 19th-century Louis XV fauteuils, a tufted white-linen headboard, and mirrored side tables imbue the quiet space with a hint of glamour. According to Jenny, even though her husband has “his spaces,” such as a workout room and home theater, at the end of the day her cozy office alcove defined by a subtle geometric wallpaper is where they would both rather be. “I sometimes retreat here during the day, but at night it’s where Jason and I hang out and talk,” she says. “He loves my office, and I love the serenity of the entire master suite.” L LUXE INTERIORS

KARA MANN

ROCK AND ROLL

AN AVANT-GARDE DESIGN SENSIBILITY PAIRED WITH SUBTLE SOPHISTICATION PROMISES AN OVER-THE-TOP DINING ROOM IN CHICAGO.

DISTINCTIVE DÉCOR Designer Kara Mann creates impeccable interiors for clients from her hometown of Chicago to the glittering city of Dubai. When asked about her favored fashion designer, she exclaims “Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. He makes rocker chic elegant,” she continues, almost inadvertently describing her own signature style. In the dining room pictured here, the draperies are made from Missoni fabric, while the chandelier mimics the punk theme of this year’s Met Ball. Recently, Mann launched a collection of supple leather fabrics with Moore & Giles, citing things such as a vintage Gucci motorcycle jacket as inspiration. Not surprising then that she crowns leather her favorite “non-neutral” neutral. Q+A How has your personal style evolved over the years? It’s become more edited, more sophisticated and more simplified. What is one trend that you’d love to see go? As far as interior design, I’d be happy not to see any more overdyed rugs, and for fashion I’m fairly tired of asymmetrical hems.

“I would describe my personal aesthetic and my interior design style as one in the same really...elegant, effortless edge.”

ROBERT PASSAL

DEFINITIVE EDGE

ADVENTUROUS PATTERNS, TAILORED LINES AND JUST THE RIGHT DOSE OF COLOR EQUAL A MODISH MASTERPIECE IN NEW YORK’S GRAMERCY PARK.

GENTLEMEN’S QUARTERS The living room of designer Robert Passal’s New York apartment, with its custom moldings and eclectic accessories, perfectly exhibits his aesthetic, self-described as “classic and tailored with a definitive edge.” Passal’s décor point of view effuses his personal style, although he believes “there is a vast difference between dressing yourself and dressing a room.” With interiors, “space, scale and functionality are all major factors,” he explains. Not one to shy away from color, Passal considers a wide range of shades to be the easiest way to incorporate fashion into the home, his favorite hue being aqua. “I’m often called a peacock,” Passal laughs, “which I’ll take as a chic term of endearment.” Q+A Do you ever use fashion fabrics in your design projects? I’m crazy for men’s suiting, especially gray flannel and cashmere chalk stripes used in upholstery. Do you side more with Chanel’s “remove one item before leaving the house” or Tony Duquette’s “more is more?” I fall somewhere in the middle, but the trick is knowing when to stop. Living with items you love, be it art, accessories or daily heirlooms, makes a house a home.

TOBI TOBIN

NEUTRAL GROUND

SUBTLE PATTERNS, NOTEWORTHY SHAPES AND RICH TEXTURES TAKE CENTER STAGE IN A LAID-BACK CALIFORNIA LIVING SPACE.

INNATE STYLE Best known for a Hollywood-glam aesthetic in a mostly neutral palette, designer and shop owner Tobi Tobin believes that style comes from within, and as is the case with any tastemaker, she claims her tastes have evolved over the years. “I’ve come a long way from wearing preppy embroidered pants in Palm Beach,” she jokes. In her own Los Angeles living room, Tobin expertly layers creams, grays and wood tones, taking cues from Donna Karan—a favorite fashion designer. Her home also works as a place to try out new ideas for her eponymous shop on Sunset Boulevard, where she sells her own furniture collection among vintage pieces and signature candles. Q+A Best style advice? Style truly comes from within, but having the courage to live with it and express it to the world takes confidence. What’s your favorite unexpected neutral? Flax linen is a beautiful neutral, but only when paired with a range of other textures. How do you see fashion trends translated for interiors? Most often through color selection. As designers, we can’t help ourselves. Fashion and interiors have always gone hand in hand.
