ON THE COVER: Contemporary with a masculine edge was interior designer Tammy Connor’s aesthetic goal for a Manhattan pied-a-terre featuring a color scheme that complements views of Central Park. To achieve this, she used a palette with a focus on blues and an eclectic mix of materials such as onyx, bronze, glass and leather. Page 255

EDITOR’S LETTER

EYE ON DESIGN Design is not only a transportive experience but a reflection of our culture, fashion, art and architecture as well. At its best, great residential design summons the idea of a place and is rooted and connected to the local landscape, adding a sense of appropriateness and indigenous commentary. For this special Design 2017 issue, we’ve thrown open the doors and uncovered the best of what makes a home stylish. From kitchens and color to architecture, materials and outdoor living, we present inspiration, ideas and expert advice from top local talent in the industry—architects, interior designers, builders and other design pros. This January/February issue also marks our sixth-annual Gold List, a collection of individuals and firms from across the country who are at the top of their game. I hope this latest issue leaves you inspired and filled with a head full of rousing design ideas!

Spending quality time with the architects, builders and designers in our community is our priority. They’re the life force of our industry and their insights keep us informed and knowledgeable. In this issue, we pay homage to the trade professionals whose projects have appeared in all 14 editions of Luxe Interiors + Design over the past year in our annual Gold List. To complement this section, some of the honorees have chosen to offer more insight into their work, which can be found in our Design Resources section. Present and past Gold List honorees are identified with a special logo created just for this occasion, and we’ll celebrate these individuals at our Gold List event in New York in March. We anticipate that, like in previous years, it will attract the who’s who in the design community. In this issue, you’ll also find profiles of other amazing design professionals and industry leaders who make an impact in this market, as well as photos of more recent events in our Gatherings pages, including the Nukitchens’ Connecticut event, who we partnered with to introduce Poggenpohl products, and Katonah Architectural Hardware in New York to help launch Nest Studio’s latest collections.

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

What do you enjoy most about design? The thing I love most about design is the story that it can tell. I gravitate toward spaces that have something to say about the owner: where they’ve been, what they like, who they love. Soulless spaces are not my thing, and I’m obsessed with creating a globally inspired home for myself. Whenever I travel I seek out smaller design stores, antiques and flea markets, and boutiques that feature local designers. My biggest design and travel pet peeve is people who buy kitschy souvenirs. Prized possessions: I’ve moved quite a bit while chasing my career. It’s exhilarating, but it also means I tend to clean house every year or two. So, if an object sticks with me, then it’s quite special. My favorites include a set of hand-carved olive wood bowls inlaid with bone detailing that I picked up while traveling through Africa, a vintage brass bar cart I drove three hours one-way to pick up off an antiques dealer, and a wall-sized map of the world. It wasn’t expensive and doesn’t have a fancy frame, but in all the places I’ve tried to make look like home over the years, it’s always occupied a wall. Favorite Luxe interview: Photographer and designer Martyn Thompson was a fascinating person to sit across a couch from. If his eclectic SoHo loft wasn’t inspiration enough, then his stories of moving to New York and finding his niche in the art world did the trick.

CHELSAE ANNE

Photographer / Palm Beach

What would be your dream work assignment? I would love to photograph for an Anthropologie catalog one day. Best career advice you’ve ever received: The lens and photographer are more important than the camera. Current design obsession: A blue velvet couch. If you could have one hidden talent, what would it be? Resiliency. Favorite book on your coffee table: One featuring the works of American artist John Singer Sargent. Most meaningful object in your house: A four-poster platform bed that my husband made for us.

LX_COM11_Contributors.indd 108

CHRISTINA HOLMES Photographer / New York I find creative inspiration from… My home state of Michigan. Nature and the natural linear landscapes of the countryside have always influenced me. How did you get started in your career? I shot reportage at a party where guests’ shoes were being shined with Dom Pérignon. Name one person you wish you could photograph. I would love to shoot a portrait of Paul Newman. What would your superpower be? Empathy and invisibility. Projecting emotion into every shot but never being seen in it. If I had a spare $20,000 to blow, I’d buy… Shoes for every occasion. And maybe even a day of my own time. Words of wisdom: Take the time to see the bigger picture in all that you do.

MAILE PINGEL Writer / Los Angeles My biggest creative influences come from… My library. At nearly 2,500 vintage and out-of-print titles, it’s pretty much an endless source of inspiration. My husband put a moratorium on buying any more, but I’ve snuck in a few! Whose work has impacted you the most design-wise? Big L.A. designers of the 1980s— especially Kalef Alaton, whose famous house in West Hollywood I drive by all the time. I think a lot about how he, and so many others like him, would have continued to shape California design had they been given longer lives. He was only 49 years old when he died due to complications from AIDS. Assuming that money were no object, I would purchase… A little Effegibi home spa. I’m so fascinated by all the new wellness products out there, like compact steam and chromotherapy designs for residential use. Ideal work trip: I would love to go on a driving tour of the United Kingdom to visit all the beautifully restored properties by The Landmark Trust. What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? Just keep doing what you’re doing. Also, don’t wait so long to get a dog. If not a writer, I would be… A landscape designer—I’d love to create beautiful gardens for people to enjoy.

New York | alexandermreid.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Alexander M. Reid thrives on the juxtaposition of vintage and contemporary design for homes that are both comfortable and stylish. Reid’s fashion-forward aesthetic has endeared him to some of couture’s biggest names: leading him to design spaces for Rebecca Minkoff, Coco Rocha and Jenni Kayne. Using different textures, materials and bold color, especially moody black, he transforms spaces with warmth and depth. ON THE HORIZON: Reid’s agenda is full for 2017: He’s in the process of designing homes everywhere from Manhattan and the Hamptons to Los Angeles. IN HIS WORDS: “I’ve never been too keen on following the trends in home design—or anywhere, really. I operate with the knowledge and have complete faith that good design will never go out of style.”

▼ MEREDITH ELLIS

Austin | meredithellisdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Meredith Ellis’ aesthetic is informed by the greats she worked for earlier in her career: Bunny Williams, Thomas Beeton and Michael S. Smith. James–her home décor showroom housed in a tiny Texas bungalow–has a cult following, further cementing her authority in ATX’s rapidly growing design community. ON THE HORIZON: Sister Parish Design, Elson & Company and Lisa Fine, among others, are joining the James showroom, and Ellis’ vignette for AmericasMart Atlanta debuts in January. IN HER WORDS: “I’m not afraid of tradition and the classical elements that have been around forever because I know how to incorporate them into today’s lifestyle. My goal is to give my clients’ homes a soul that becomes a part of them.”

 MAX HUMPHREY

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Max Humphrey’s designs are pure Americana with a whole lot of edge (think Rosie the Riveter meets punk rock). His non-linear background as a musician and film and television producer influences his crafty style and eye for the extraordinary. ON THE HORIZON: Humphrey is currently designing his first restaurant, The Cutlery, and two retail spaces for City Home, a funky home goods store. His first line of custom fabrics will launch one by one in January and will be made in the states and sold exclusively on his website.

MAGGIE CRUZ ▲

Miami | maggiecruzdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: It’s easy to spot a Maggie Cruz home when you walk in the door. Cruz raises the bar for Miami design with an unmistakable polish and burst of color. Incorporating bold art into her rooms, she brings to life the flair and exuberance of the city. ON THE HORIZON: Though she’s always designed bespoke pieces for clients, Cruz is launching her first collection of stand-alone pieces available for purchase this spring. Maggie Cruz Home Collection represents her ode to Miami, inspired by her Cuban heritage. IN HER WORDS: “I’m drawn to the vibrancy and energy of Miami and to the texture and history of Cuba. My design style is grounded in tradition and balanced with modern sensibilities.”

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 114

IN HIS WORDS: “I like every room to show signs of life. You can tell a project is mine because it will be slightly undone, with artwork everywhere, and there won’t be any karate-chopped pillows.”

 CAITLIN MURRAY Los Angeles | blacklacquerdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Though Caitlin Murray is meticulous and detailoriented, her interiors are as effortlessly cool as they come. Innovative combinations in pattern, color and material make for joyful spaces that reflect the laid-back sophistication of their Southern California surroundings. ON THE HORIZON: Murray is expanding into product design this year and is currently working on an e-commerce extension to her website in hopes of launching a furniture line in the future. IN HER WORDS: “I lead with intuition and emotion, which makes every project unique. The creative process feels very fluid to me, and too much analyzing throws me off.”

New York | wesleymoon.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Wesley Moon’s bold aesthetic and unrestrained use of wild patterns and statement-making pieces attract the most fashionable clientele. ON THE HORIZON: T. Camille Martin of TCM Studio and Aaron McIntire from Gunn Landscape Architecture are aiding Moon with the customization of a West Village triplex penthouse, created from two adjoining town houses. IN HIS WORDS: “I don’t like rooms that feel ‘decorated.’ I prefer a curated collection of beautiful furniture and objects that make it seem like the room has been evolving for years, and will continue to do so.”

STEPHANIE HAUPTLI

Los Angeles | hauptlihaus.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Stephanie Hauptli’s European background informs her multidisciplinary design work, where she blends functionality with beauty in ethereal, contemporary spaces.

COLIN GRIFFITH ‡

IN HER WORDS: “My interiors feature a strong contrast: This could be as simple as an icy gray fabric paired with an otherwise warm palette.”

Denver | griffithid.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Colin Griffith’s designs have the ease and coziness of classic Colorado design, without being over-designed. They feel lived-in and nostalgic, as if they’ve been family homes for decades. His trick is a curated use of comfortable, classic elements remastered in luxurious materials. ON THE HORIZON: Griffith will be traveling to Europe, South America and Asia for design inspiration this year with the hope of building his network of craftsmen and specialists. IN HIS WORDS: “I love seeing and hearing my clients talk about their projects with an increased awareness of space, function and how they want to live within the home.”

 LAURA KEHOE

WHY WE LOVE HER: Laura Kehoe pulls inspiration from everywhere: blasting music in her studio while leafing through books and looking at images from her travels. Her style is true to both her California roots and to her firm’s home base in Arizona; she works with the environment, uses natural materials, color and light, and adds a touch of bohemian ease.

 KATIE STOREY

San Francisco | storeydesign.co WHY WE LOVE HER: Focusing on an individualized approach, Katie Storey aims to create spaces that serve as extensions of her clients’ personalities. From renovating classic Victorian town houses to designing modern homes, Storey adapts to her clients’ styles to make them feel at home. ON THE HORIZON: Storey is launching her first line of signature textiles and home goods to complement her crisp, refined design style. IN HER WORDS: “We aren’t designing for Spring 2017. We’re designing for your life, because we know spaces that function better feel better.”

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 116

ON THE HORIZON: Kehoe is excited about a large project built in the foothills of Ahwatukee, which will feature traditional elements and French country touches. Because it’s not a typical design for a home on a mountainside in Arizona, Kehoe is focusing on making sure the home seamlessly blends in with its environment. IN HER WORDS: “Our aesthetic is both elegant and very livable, and our approach is one of soft-handed guidance where we collaborate and listen to our clients.”

RADAR / DEBUT

REVVED & READY DESIGNER CAM CROCKFORD EXPERIMENTS WITH RAW MATERIALS TO CONSTRUCT USEFUL WORKS OF ART FOR HIS BUZZED-ABOUT FURNITURE DEBUT. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER

PORTRAIT: ALBERTO LACCOURREYE.

“My style is very sculptural and free-flowing,” says Brooklyn-based artist and craftsman Cam Crockford of his recently launched modern Deco furniture line. The groundbreaking debut, an artful and refreshing take on traditional and timeless forms, has garnered praise from some of the industry’s most discerning patrons—and it’s easy to see why. The collection distinctly embodies Crockford’s innate passion for timeless design and his deep appreciation for organic lines and textures, which he explores without sacrificing form or function. “Everything I make is a one-ofa-kind custom piece of art,” says Crockford. “My work is really about taking a raw material and manipulating it into a usable sculpture.” But Crockford is no overnight sensation: Since moving to New York City in 2010, he has held many behind-the-scenes positions with a number of notable artisans, including Tom Fruin, whose public art installations have recently become fixtures along the Brooklyn skyline, and custom furniture maker Mark Jupiter. A true artist and fabricator at heart since childhood, Crockford’s enthusiasm for his craft, hands-on mentality and intense curiosity to learn new techniques using

unexpected materials have driven him to evolve and, consequently, stumble upon fortuitous circumstances. When his friend, who works for a high-end designer, had an unusual fixture that he needed assistance devising, Crockford tackled the project without hesitation. “Two days later, he and his boss came over and were pleasantly surprised with what I had produced,” he says. “Some call it luck, but to me, it’s what happens when skilled preparation collides with opportunity. It was the turning point of my career.” Inspired by his world travels and prolific artists, like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali, Crockford’s creative process starts as an improvisational exercise of roughly assembling shapes and pairing colors with complementary textures. “I usually

LX_COM11_Radar_Crockford.indd 120

begin a project with scraps from my studio, and once I have a ‘palette’ for each piece, I start to manipulate the materials into their final form,” explains Crockford. Using recycled building materials from past projects, he fashioned his first piece, the RawDeco sofa (shown), with old pine beams salvaged from a Bronx warehouse and brass tubing. “The sofa was a great foundational piece that I poured my heart into, and from this followed the rest of my first collection,” he says. Crockford will launch his much-anticipated next line this spring with the same gusto and ethos: He plans to continue pushing boundaries by using new types of industrial materials, as well as stone and glass. “I like to set the bar high for myself,” he says, “and try to never get comfortable.”

#INSTACRUSH @hernandezgreene

WHO: Katrina Hernandez and Josh Greene, the creative forces behind New York Citybased design firm Hernandez Greene.

WHY: Hernandez Greene’s Instagram philosophy is simple: “If it inspires us, we post it.” So, if you’re looking for some inspiration, this is the account for you. IN THEIR WORDS: “We’re always paying attention to our surroundings and the design details throughout our day-to-day lives. On the street, we’re drawn to a wide range of architectural styles, anywhere from Beaux Arts to modernism. We love color, but when we’re translating all of this onto our feed, we’re drawn to shades that are a little more mellow.”

BLUEPRINT VESSEL

Behold the soon-to-be-built structure many are calling the Eiffel Tower of New York City. When Heatherwick Studio’s $150 million public art installation, dubbed Vessel, is complete in 2018, it will feature 154 staircases—2,400 steps in total—connected with 80 landings and rising to a height of 150 feet with 16 stories. The structure, which will be the crown jewel of Hudson Yards’ Public Square and Gardens, is designed to be one massive jungle gym, explains Thomas Heatherwick, founder and principal of Heatherwick Studio. The design, he says, was inspired by Indian stepwells, and the end result is meant to inspire people to congregate. Says Heatherwick, “The idea is that it will act as a free stage set for the city and form a new public gathering place for New Yorkers and visitors.” heatherwick.com

THE INSIDER ASHLEY STARK-KENNER

Ashley Stark-Kenner’s grandparents, Arthur and Nadia Stark, founded their eponymous carpet and rug company in 1938, with the second generation of the family taking the helm in 1971. Growing up in the business, Stark-Kenner developed her eye for fine flooring at an early age and eventually joined her cousin Chad Stark as the creative director and senior vice president, respectively, of Stark. While she focuses on bringing fresh and modern collections to the company’s repertoire, he continues to propel the company into the forefront of technology. We sat down with Stark-Kenner to get the scoop on what’s hot in the New York design scene. starkcarpet.com For the art-focused: I love Benrubi Gallery in Chelsea; it has a great collection of works by LeRoy Grannis, Massimo Vitali and Matthew Pillsbury, to name a few. My dear friend Rachel Smith works there, and I’ve learned to always buy what she tells me. She begged me to buy a Vitali piece years before he became popular—I should have listened. A timeless museum: The Museum of Modern Art is a special place for me, as my husband and I visited it together over the years of our courtship, 132 / LUXESOURCE.COM

LX_NY27_Scene.indd 132

which started when we were only 17. We have wildly different tastes in art, and yet we can always come together to appreciate everything we see there. Ones to watch: I love Brooklyn-based artist Tara Donovan. I was invited to a private tour of her studio and watched as she blew chemical agents onto a piece of metal to create an etch for a print. My mother and I both own some of her artworks. I also bought two of Spencer

Sweeney’s pieces a few years ago; I think he will be one of the greats someday soon. Shopping list: I enjoy stopping by Homenature in the Flatiron neighborhood for beach-inspiredmeets-vintage goods. I ordered the Lumière chandelier by Jean de Merry from there, and I will never forget the size of the crate and how it came suspended inside. And for antique finds, Newel’s Upper East Side location is a great resource.

WHAT: Everything on the duo’s feed is filtered through the fresh eyes of a young, burgeoning enterprise. The colors, compositions and locations featured are a true reflection of their aesthetic. Expect to find beautiful architecture, design details, art, antiques and snapshots from their travels and interiors projects.

SCRIBNER’S CATSKILL LODGE The Hudson Valley is hot right now, and if you need yet another example of this, look no further than the recently renovated Scribner’s Catskill Lodge in Hunter. Brooklyn-based design group Studio Tack renovated the interiors of the 38-room hotel, originally built in the 1960s. The company’s vision was to create a modern space that defined the idea of urban retreating, all while giving a good tip of their hat to the rich heritage and culture of the Catskill Mountains. A grand two-story lobby and a massive skylight utilize the charm of nature and nostalgia, allowing a stream of sunlight to greet guests. An all-white palette presents clean and simple guest rooms, keeping the vibe barefoot and bohemian. Furniture pieces come from area purveyors including Brooklyn’s Fort Standard and Hudson-based Samuel Moyer Furniture, while local artists like Emily Johnston and The Catskill Kiwi crafted the wall décor. Regardless the season, this fresh take on a Catskills classic is exactly the excuse needed for a weekend upstate. scribnerslodge.com

ON DISPLAY TEXTILE–TERRITORY–TEXT

Add a visit to Jersey City’s Mana Contemporary to your winter schedule. On display through February 25 at the gallery developed by entrepreneur and philanthropist Moishe Mana is “Textile— Territory—Text,” a group exhibition of paintings, sculptures, photos, videos and animated works by contemporary Middle Eastern artists that demonstrate how

apparel textiles help convey personal identities, languages and social norms. The show, special because of Mana’s Israeli heritage, delves into how what people wear can define their existence and, in subtle or obvious ways, can often express in an intimate way how they perceive themselves, such as feminine or masculine and private or public. manacontemporary.com

When did you open? We welcomed the first guests into our new SoHo store, at 426 Broome St., in May. Describe the space. It’s a super-cute 1,000-square-foot room, which feels very intimate and easy to shop in. We’ve incorporated our usual color palette of soft shades of white. After stripping the floor back, we found a very white dry maple wood, so we used a diluted sumi ink to make the starting point a little darker, then mixed in a wash of Hardwick White by Farrow & Ball and a dash of regular hard white paint. What’s on the floor? We focus on all things related to dining and entertaining, so there’s a strong emphasis on ceramics, glassware, flatware and table linen. The merchandise is largely Canvas Home, but we also stock great designers like Pigeon Toe, Hawkins, Apotheke, Studiopatró, Sudarshan and Daniel Smith. Will you be hosting events? You bet—we love any excuse for a party! We’ll have book signings, art exhibitions or launches if we have a bunch of new products—or even if it’s summer and we haven’t seen people recently. canvashomestore.com

DATE BOOK KIMIA KLINE

As the curator for the Wythe Hotel’s art collection, and a successful artist in her own right, Kimia Kline knows a good display when she sees one. Located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, the Wythe Hotel was once a fabric factory in the early 1900s, reimagined in 2012 by Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Andrew Highsmith of Brooklyn-based design studio Workstead. Kline came on just a few months after its opening and oversaw the hotel’s commission of its first important pieces by such artists as Tom Fruin, Duke Riley and Stephen Powers, also known as ESPO. Her job, she explains, requires building authentic relationships with creatives in the community. “We’re not purchasing in bulk, and we’re not buying reproductions; we are literally visiting artists in their studios, listening to their stories and learning about what inspires them,” she says. “It’s through these conversations that we find creative and exciting ways of connecting their artwork to our guests.” So, if there’s one person who should be showing the design-minded around Brooklyn, it’s Kline. Here, she gives us a tour of her favorite haunts and the people who are shaping the borough today. kimiakline.com

10 a.m. Wander down Wythe Avenue and pop into Mociun, which sells one-of-a-kind jewelry by Caitlin Mociun as well as pottery and quirky home goods by local artists and craftsmen like Shino Takeda. Once you reach Grand Street, visit Sprout Home for flowers, terrariums and other gifts, then head to Sharktooth for beautiful vintage textiles and rugs.

12 p.m. For lunch, walk to Marlow & Sons, one of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn. The menu is seasonal and changes daily with organic produce from nearby farms. It’s also an outpost for handbags, clothing and other products by Marlow Goods. 1 p.m. Visit The Journal Gallery, my favorite spot for great art and smart, innovative exhibitions. Then walk to Bedford Avenue for Malin Landaeus (my hidden gem for vintage finds) and In God We Trust, which designs and manufactures its clothing and jewelry in the United States. 3 p.m. It’s a bit out of the way, but if you have time, head to 106 Green. It’s at the top of my list of Brooklyn-based galleries, especially

because it’s an artist-run space. Two of the founders—husband and wife Ridley Howard and Holly Coulis—are artists featured in our Wythe Hotel collection. 4 p.m. For small plates and a pre-dinner drink, Hotel Delmano on Berry Street is a romantic date spot and a favorite amongst local Williamsburgians. 6 p.m. Head back to the Wythe Hotel to enjoy a spectacular view of the sunset over Manhattan from The Ides rooftop bar. 8 p.m. I suggest dinner at Moroccan-inspired Cafe Mogador. It’s a great way to end the day. Note: The almond cake will change your life.

DATE BOOK PHOTOS: CARMEN CHAN.

9 a.m. Start with breakfast at Reynard in the Wythe Hotel, and trust me: Order the Dutch pancake. You’ll be really full—but also really happy. From there, walk to Grade Coffee on North 8th Street, an unassuming but charming kiosk that serves a great brew.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

Magically traveling back in time to a period that shaped the first international architectural age of Art Deco, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris marries the present day with the vibrancy of the Jazz Age. Influenced by a combination of modernism and bold geometric forms, these interior finds prove that this sophisticated style will forever remain a tour de force.

Model BEHAVIOR LUXURIOUS AND LEGGY, THESE SEXY SEATS STRUT THEIR STUFF TO FAVORABLE REVIEWS FROM AN ARTFUL CROP OF CREATIVE CONTEMPORARIES. WRITTEN AND STYLED BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERIC PIASECKI

ROMY NORTHOVER ARTIST DESIGNBYNO.COM

Artist to artist: Helena Sultan’s work sends a message to connect to the present. As with her company’s name, Konekt, the pieces themselves, titled Pause, are a beautiful and simple reminder to do just that. On balance: There is a conversation between these materials—the shiny and the matte, the warm and the cold. This complementary opposition displays a true understanding of balance. Authenticity is what separates these pieces: It’s clear Helena’s designs come from the heart and soul, and that really reads on a subliminal level. Color play: Cobalt, a precious pigment, is historically used in iconography, while rusty red imbues more of a wabi-sabi philosophy. I’m drawn to the tension this unexpected pairing of the chairs and background explores. Last call: The Pause pieces are bold, contoured, tactile and considered.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 158

11/21/16 11:32 AM


CASTING CALL THE PIECE: Pause Lounge Chair and Pause Chaise Lounge THE DESIGNER: Helena Sultan FIND IT: konektfurniture.com THE INSPIRATION: The Pause lounge chair and its sister chaise were born from a desire to invite users living in a world of digital overload to take a moment and slow down. Through the Pennsylvania-based designer’s use of curvaceous fiberglass shells and alluring materials—copper, mohair, brass and velvet—the results are that of deep comfort, timelessness and a penchant to make one pause.

FOREVER YOUNG THE PIECE: Contour Armchair THE DESIGNER: Cliff Young, Ltd. FIND IT: cliffyoungltd.com THE INSPIRATION: With a comely and clean design in mind, Cliff Young, Ltd.’s Contour armchair came to fruition, and with it, the generational and highly respected brand’s intention to brighten and lighten any space this sculptural piece will ever inhabit. With its inviting, lightweight form and stunning hide and metal options, this is indeed a mission accomplished.

SALLY KING BENEDICT

ARTIST SALLYBENEDICT.COM

Artist to artist: Cliff Young, Ltd., has been on the vanguard of modern and relevant designs for nearly 50 years—how impressive is that! I’m immediately drawn… To the simple lines, mix of materials and functionality of the Contour chair. It’s also attractive in that it has a modern Italian look that pops against this cobalt background. There is nothing finer… Than a supple, smooth leather to lie upon and break in to your own personal, perfect fit. The hide paired with the lustrous finish of the rose gold is a match made in five-star heaven. On keeping it real: Because the world is so inundated with the visual overload of others’ work and inspiration these days, true authenticity and original design seem harder and harder to come by. I find it critical for true artisans and designers to continue on with our paths and ideas. Cliff Young, Ltd., has always been a fearless leader in doing just that. Last call: The Contour chair feels inviting, supple, streamlined and elegant.

KELLEY JOHNSON ARTIST JOHNSON-KELLEY.COM

Artist to artist: Farrah Sit’s design aesthetic is so pleasingly minimal and functional and permeates everything she does—the Noir chair is no exception. Opposites attract: The strong and enduring quality of steel fused with the durable warmth of cotton is such a fresh marriage, visually and time withstanding. Anytime you take a risk… You learn something about yourself and the work that you do. It’s the only way to discover your truth and take a stance on the message you want to convey. Color play: The cobalt and rust hues of the background, along with the severe lighting, heighten the planar and angular quality of the composition and seem to speak the same language as the Noir chair. This study in contrasts, between the light and the dark, the hard and the soft, could actually be used to describe both the environment and Farrah’s design. Last call: The Noir chair reads as architectural, minimal, refined, purposeful and timeless.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 161

FREE AGENT THE PIECE: Noir Lounge Chair THE DESIGNER: Farrah Sit FIND IT: farrahsit.com THE INSPIRATION: Architectural planes, airy silhouettes and sleek edges define the Brooklynite’s Noir series. A cool and clever exploration of “less is more,” the series’ star chair marries an unexpected pairing of steel and woven cotton, proving that opposites are often better when they’re together.

LEATHER AND LACE THE PIECE: Artemis Armchairs THE DESIGNER: Kelly Lamb FIND IT: kellylamb.net THE INSPIRATION: Multidisciplinary designer (and cool Californian) Kelly Lamb took all the right cues from Artemis— the Ancient Greek deity, goddess of the hunt and mistress of the wilderness and the moon—when concepting this namesake chair. Leather upholstery and lacing reference the aesthetic of mythic times, while the metal finishes are fit for no less than a god or goddess, circa-BCE times or present-day.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 162

WAYNE PATE ARTIST WAYNEPATE.COM

Artist to artist: I’m deeply impressed with Kelly Lamb’s body of work and the balance in her execution of color and materials. Considering its composition and angles, I find this piece disarming. On authenticity: As well-known American graphic designer Paul Rand once said, “Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.” That quote has had a lasting effect on me and informs how I approach my own work and look at others. Clear-cut appeal: The Artemis feels like a classic, modern chair, but one that you were not aware of until now. I can never get enough of… Black metal and bronze. Historically, this assembly of materials has been behind the making of so many iconic pieces from the 20th century. A real beacon of luxury… Is the laced-leather detail on the back of the chair—so clever and unexpected. Last call: The Artemis chair feels clever, understated, graceful, sophisticated and effortless.

11/21/16 11:33 AM


THE CLIMB THE PIECE: Sempione Stool THE DESIGNER: Natasha Baradaran FIND IT: natashabaradaran.com THE INSPIRATION: As homage to her grandfather and childhood afternoons spent lazing and feeding the pigeons in Milan’s stately Parco Sempione, Natasha Baradaran reimagined a sculptural stool that’s equal parts nostalgia and high style. Part of the L.A.-based designer’s new Curva collection, the stool and its counterparts are packed with Milanese style and are meant to celebrate dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing).

MIMI JUNG

ARTIST MIMIJUNG.COM

Artist to artist: Natasha Baradaran has a markedly effortless knack for creating harmony in everything she touches, from her interiors to her furniture. What’s most striking… About the Sempione stool is the intention and process that went into the realization of this piece. From the sweet inspiration to her ingenious use of plush and more severe materials, the whole design reads as a piece of art. On authenticity: Working in the creative world is a privilege—with it comes a responsibility to honor the past, respect the present and inspire the future. The ultimate luxury… In my opinion is being surrounded by artful works in your own home; I would love for this stool to live adjacent to the sofa in my living room. Last call: The Sempione stool is textural, plush, sculptural, heavy and light.

FULL OF GRACE THE PIECE: Stool 001 - Ebonized THE DESIGNER: Vincent Pocsik FIND IT: vincentpocsik.com THE INSPIRATION: Stature, anatomy and cattle—a curious but oh-so-successful grouping of inspirations that led to the realization of Vincent Pocsik’s Stool 001. Stirred by the bodily structure of animals, specifically that of the bull, Pocsik’s design was crafted with the same elegance, strength and balance as that of the stoic and larger-than-life creature.

JOHN HOGAN

GLASS ARTIST, DESIGNER & CONSULTANT JOHNHOGANDESIGNS.COM

Artist to artist: Vincent Pocsik’s designs hold a soft masculinity and elevated feel that derives from simple, fluid lines and hearty materials. The attention paid to the negative space is really important to the sophistication of these stools. On timelessness: Vincent’s use of traditional materials is tried-and-true and makes the most sense for a stool. So many designs are beautiful but solely so; longevity and aesthetics should never be exclusive of one another. Luxury nowadays... Seems to be going in two different directions: Some concepts are more complex and involved, while others rely on the simplicity and quality of materials to say something more understated. Stool 001’s strongest luxury is its restraint, and I appreciate that. There is something about this form… That suggests anatomical movement to me. I feel like maybe the stools want to go for a walk. Last call: This piece reads as masculine, soft, strong, chic and stable.

Alberto Villalobos & Mercedes Desio Villalobos & Desio | New York, NY “The new collections at High Point Market get better and better each season. We love seeing unique, tailored pieces that are ideal for city living. The range of furniture collections always surprises us. The proportions are varied, so it’s easy to source pieces for any project, whether an apartment in the city or a house in Florida. The collaborations between designers and showrooms are always inspiring. After all, it’s more than just trends, it’s about offering individual visions.” “When visiting High Point Market in the future, use social media to navigate ‘must-see’ products that editors and others are posting. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and take in all the events and parties to catch up with your peers and revel in what’s new in design.”

Brit Kleinman AVO | Brooklyn, NY “It’s hard for me to pinpoint a particular product from High Point Market that served as an inspiration, but I loved the use of color in everything—a lot of warm neutrals mixed with pops of bright hues. I find that there’s always a product ‘find’ for everyone! I particularly like to visit Historic Market Square and the cutting-edge innovations that evolve from other small businesses that exhibit there. I am very inspired by manufacturing techniques and the story behind makers. A lot of domestic manufacturers have had to fight to stay afloat and that perseverance comes out in the innovation of the product.” Credit: AVO

Michelle Morgan Harrison Morgan Harrison Home | New Canaan, CT “I am always looking for inspiration in fabrics, interesting color combinations and mixes of materials. But color is what drives me. This past market I saw some great combinations that were consistently found throughout all of the showrooms. Blue was everywhere… in different shades and combinations, but steel blue was the color of the market. Pinks and blushes continued to be popular, and black and cream combos were everywhere in organic textures. Teal and turquoise, combined with black and pops of coral was a new look. Brown was back, but it was a brown with gray undertones. I also saw a lot of brass, and black metal legs and frames on sofas and chairs.”

The centerpiece of this Houston kitchen is the breathtaking island from Chateau Domingue; it was made from a 17th-century sacristy cabinet from Jaca, Spain. The large steel window from Atelier Domingue provides a more contemporary counterpoint to the exterior kitchen wall, which incorporates stones reclaimed from a house in Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Provence region. Pantry doors designed by architectural consultant and designer Sarah West flank the window.

CHARACTER BUILDING HIGHLY CURATED MATERIALS AND LUXURIOUS CUSTOM DETAILS BRING TIMELESS APPEAL TO THE HARDEST-WORKING ROOMS IN THE HOUSE. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

The warmth of wood, the cool touch of marble, the gleam of brass or nickel: There’s a reason why materials carry so much weight in the kitchen and bath. Capturing both the senses and the imagination, they offer a magical combination of tactile sensation and arresting beauty that goes far beyond function. Consider how an inspired mix of decorative finishes can elevate a room beyond the ordinary, or how a thoughtful installation of architectural elements can pay homage to a home’s history or bring context to a space where none existed, such as in new construction. Here, we take a look at the ways designers are using all manner of materials to add a layer of personality and authenticity to your home’s busiest hubs.

SALVAGED BEAUTY SARAH WEST

PHOTO: WADE BLISSARD.

Houston-based architectural consultant and designer Sarah West combines European treasures with clean minimalism for a fresh take on the country French look. Share your inspiration. My aim was to strike a timeless balance: The architectural antiques and salvaged beams provide a stark contrast with the clean lines of the vent hood and the steel divided-light window. Originally, the window was supposed to have an arch, but making it rectangular felt much more modern.

Let’s talk about that island. I wanted to integrate a freestanding furniture-like island in the center of the kitchen, reminiscent of something you’d have seen in France several centuries ago. It was a way to introduce history and have a beautiful piece anchoring the space. The goal was to have that immediate “wow” factor when you enter.

Why work with salvaged materials? People tend to like pieces that tell a story, but especially with new construction, it’s hard to add a sense of history to a space. Bringing in antiques lends patina and character. You can have a drawer handle and see where it’s worn from centuries of use. That kind of context is always appealing. LUXESOURCE.COM / 183

SURFACE APPEAL Less about form than function, vanities aren’t usually the first place one looks to make a splash style-wise in the bath. That may change with Chameleon Concepts’ Parsons vanity, though, which features a customizable façade with a wide range of finishes you can use to coordinate with the surroundings. The door front cleverly frames inserts of various materials such as tile, mirror, marble or leather, allowing designers and homeowners to put their personal mark on an otherwise underutilized area. chameleonconcepts.com

There are few places in the house where abundant lighting is more essential than the vanity mirror. With a three-bulb LED option, the Julien sconce from Hudson Valley Lighting ensures that you’ve got just enough coverage to tackle all your grooming needs, all while making a glamorous statement in opulent aged brass. Groovy satellite shades combine midcentury good looks with a dash of space-age cool, so your bath will be as chic as it is well-lit. hudsonvalleylighting.com

IN THE

BLACK

For the past decade, we’ve seen freestanding tubs soar in popularity, but one thing has been a constant: Whether they were vintage-inspired or contemporary and sculptural, soakers were overwhelmingly white. Now, the matte-black trend, so in vogue for kitchen appliances and personal tech, has made it to the bath in the form of the Warndon tub from Victoria + Albert. Crafted from a solid casting of volcanic limestone and resin, it’s harder and more durable than acrylic, and it comes in seven finishes. ferguson.com

These days, high-impact finishes in the bath go beyond mere tile and stone. Architectural flourishes, brass hardware and striking surface treatments combine to create unique spaces filled with character and an element of surprise. Take this Minneapolis powder room, where black and white is anything but basic thanks to a conversation piece of a vanity featuring a whimsically curvy leg. “The vanity is spectacular, but it doesn’t dominate the room because we kept the space dark and cave-like for maximum drama,” says builder Chris Van Klei of Detail Homes. On the following page, design talents from across the country share some of their favorite ways to use architectural elements, such as paneling and steel-frame doors, to impressive effect in the bath. detailhomes.com

Gathering by the fire never looked so refined, as sculptural lines and creamy hues bring a sophisticated edge to this Francine Gardner-designed living room that captures French wine country flair in the Hamptons. 1 / Palette Cleanse: Streamline your stately fireplace with monochromatic tones on both your mantel and the surrounding wall. Here, shades of ecru lend an aura of softness to this beveled mantelpiece. 2 / Fine Finish: Introduce a contrasting accent, like a distinctive varnish, on your fireplace screen; this one, in a dark textured metal, helps ground the airy space while also perfectly matching the round coffee table. 3 / Bare Necessities: Dress down your traditional mantel with just a few décor items: Delicate sand-dollar figurines and a simple painting framed in brushed metal add adornment without being too intrusive. 4 / Close to Heart: Create seating catered to fireside conversations with an array of accent chairs centered around the fireplace, such as these complementary wingback and rattan chairs with their formal silhouettes and buttery textiles.

Even lofty, metropolitan spaces deserve some warmth, and this fireplace-turned-statement-wall adds a kindling allure while holding its own in this urban SoHo apartment designed by Ernest de la Torre. 1 / Royal Flush: Eschew classic mantelpiece proportions and instead surround your fireplace with truly dramatic and oversize wall art. This massive painting of a windblown branch adds a feminine touch with its delicate lines and seamlessly blends into the fireplace’s clean façade. 2 / Artful Balance: Play with asymmetry with an offset fireplace for additional visual interest. Here, the fireplace has been placed just a little to the left, encouraging the eye to follow across the expansive artwork above. 3 / Color Code: Echo your fireplace’s color scheme with similar materials in your furnishings. The mantel’s blend of glossy white and warm taupe is mirrored in the coffee table, complete with rustic accents. 4 / Broad Brush: Match your minimalist mantel with some maximalist textiles, like these lush custom sofas in a vivid pink Sabina Fay Braxton silk-velvet, paired with fuchsia draperies in Tussar Indian silk.

CRAFTED CHARM

THE DESIGN TEAM: Interior Design / Kati Curtis, Kati Curtis Design

An Arts and Crafts fireplace takes a contemporary turn in this sunlit family room overlooking New Jersey’s Navesink River, as designer Kati Curtis offers a refreshing take on its iconic Craftsman-style façade with a lean profile that lets light flow through from room to room. 1 / Open Face: Spread the warmth by introducing a two-sided fireplace at transitional moments between spaces. This doublefaced design creates inviting conversation spots on both sides and retains the room’s airy ambience with crisp white molding. 2 / In the Raw: Embrace the traditional and add exposed brick around your mantel for textural appeal. This brick façade also continues down to an elevated hearth, which is perfect for displaying reclaimed organic décor. 3 / Short and Sweet: Put your fireplace front and center with low furnishings that preserve your sightline. Contemporary sofas from Cisco Brothers, paired with a chair and ottoman from McGuire, keep a demure presence while still feeling cozy. 4 / Old School: Honor your fireplace’s Craftsman roots with some equally artisanal accents, like this earthy Donegal wool carpet and a Clubcu walnut coffee table with exposed grain.

LUXE LOOKS AT THE KITCHEN TRENDS SURE TO COOK UP EXCITEMENT IN 2017.

PHOTO: SIMON MAXWELL.

WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

For this spectacular space by London-based Peek Architecture + Design, an on-trend mix of brass, Carrara marble, antique mirrors and deep-blue cabinetry creates a sophisticated kitchen unit that sits well in the historic space and allows the ornate plasterwork to shine.

CENTER STAGE The heart of the home is not exempt from changing tastes: Kitchen design reflects how people live, and that’s constantly evolving. The ongoing popularity of the open plan has transformed this hardworking room into a performance space in itself. It’s fitting, then, that this lovely kitchen by Peek Architecture + Design is situated in an apartment that occupies what was once part of an old theater. It’s a fine example of how color, customization and materials are coming together to create highly detailed, bespoke spaces with big drama. On the following pages, take a look at the elegant upgrades we can’t wait to bring to our own kitchens this year.

bench MARK

When it comes to sex appeal, a cozy corner banquette certainly trumps a breakfast bar. An upholstered nook evokes the glamour of dining out without actually having to leave one’s home, but, more importantly, it encourages one to slow down and sit—even for meals on-the-go. Inspired by her clients’ love of Belgian design, Minneapolisbased designer Kate Roos opted for a freestanding piece in this family kitchen. “The hand-tufted navy blue bench rests on quarter-sawn white-oak legs to keep it feeling light,” she says. Gray cabinetry, marble countertops and brass accents complete the space’s warm European aesthetic. kateroosdesign.com

RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES Even novice home cooks want to know: What features do pros and serious foodies look for in a stove? “I’m all in favor of models with a range of heat—big BTU burners and also ones that simmer well,” says expert Mark Bittman, author of the How to Cook Everything series. One method of cooking that’s been heating up over the last couple of years is induction. The cooktop’s two biggest selling points are high heat and a low constant simmer. To satisfy demand, Italian company ILVE is introducing a brand-new 36-inch and a 40-inch induction range this year, like the one shown here. ilveappliances.com

OPEN f lame

For the kitchen of this Brooklyn town house, New York architect Elizabeth Roberts knocked out walls on the parlor level of the home to create an open floor plan. “The clients are avid cooks and wanted a place where they could socialize with guests while preparing food,” she says. Clear sight lines also ensure that all eyes are on one of the space’s most unique features: a year-round wood-burning grill with an adjustable rack. Navy blue tiles from Heath Ceramics surround the grill, making it as sleek as it is practical. elizabethroberts.com

4 BALL & CHAIN

Pendant lights in the kitchen continue to evolve from purely functional to all-out fashion statements. For evidence of this trend, look no further than the Dolma chandelier from designer Windsor Smith for Arteriors. Combining a Byzantine influence with modern geometry, the light features polished-brass hexagons that form a lacy globe suspended from a delicate chain. Whether hung in multiples over an island or as a singular fixture over the sink, the open basket-weave design is sure to throw artful shadows throughout your home. arteriorshome.com

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

There’s a reason why black is the first choice for cocktail attire. It’s perennially chic, goes with virtually everything and easily hides spills. Now apply those attributes to the kitchen, and you can see why a noir cookspace, like this one from San Francisco designer Catherine Kwong, holds so much appeal. “I wanted to create an area that was moody and glamorous, but also able to withstand a lot of use,” she says. Hardworking materials like jet-painted cabinets and brickwork subway tile set the scene, while unexpected elements like flathead screw detailing on drawer fronts and a vintage bronze mariner’s sconce add shine and contrast. catherinekwong.com

TOTAL transparency Just as the right accessories elevate an ensemble, beautifully crafted knobs and pulls add polish and interest to your cabinetry. For these Art Deco-inspired pieces, designer Jessica Ahnert Davis of boutique hardware company Nest Studio proves she isn’t afraid to mix materials, combining chrome or brass joinery with acrylic. The knobs’ notched design recalls the retro lines of old-fashioned radios and microphones while simultaneously maintaining an edgy, contemporary vibe. nest-studio-home.com

With backsplashes seemingly growing bolder and more luxurious by the minute, the hunt is on for tile that delivers on both fronts. Offering a modern take on the Roaring ’20s’ love for gilt and glam, the Gatsby mosaic from TileBar combines Nero Marquina and white Thassos marble in a lively geometric pattern with crisp, brass linear accents: No wonder it’s named for the character who embodies the style and decadence of the era. tilebar.com

HOT seat

Kitchen stools tend to skew more utilitarian than glamorous. Not so with the Geisha barstool from Koket. With textured velvet upholstery that calls to mind on-trend shibori prints, it offers a perch that is both plush and posh, and its gracefully curved arms and sleek, polished-brass legs bring a new level of luxury to island dining. bykoket.com

How does one soften the interior of a modern concrete house? Why you throw it a curve, of course! That’s what Australian architecture firm Auhaus did in the form of a sculptural, statement-making range hood. Rendered in brass, the dualcylinder design provides a striking contrast to the room’s clean lines. Using wood paneling on the ceiling and cabinetry brings warmth to the palette, and heavily veined marble provides plenty of eye-catching pattern. auhaus-arch.com

FUTURE FORECAST THREE TOP DESIGNERS TALK ABOUT CURRENT KITCHEN TRENDS AND SHARE A FEW PREDICTIONS FOR THE YEAR.

KAREN WILLIAMS

ST. CHARLES OF NEW YORK What’s the biggest trend you’re seeing? We’re slowly moving away from total open-plan kitchens by finding ways to delineate spaces with architectural separations or a change of floor pattern. We’re also seeing more walk-in pantries for storage. Any must-have upgrades? Luxury finishes, beautiful chandeliers and fixtures, ranges in high-end materials, even luxury hardware— you see, touch and use these things every day. Kitchens see a lot of use, so people have come to view these touches as a worthy investment. Up next? I think there will be more personalization and an influx of interesting materials in the kitchen, such as new finishes and exotic veneers. Be on the lookout for more mixing of metals and darker palettes, resulting in new levels of sophistication. stcharlesofnewyork.com

_LX_COM11_TheReport.indd 192

CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK PEACOCK HOME

What is on your clients’ wish lists? High-quality hardware in both classic and transitional styles is always important to our clientele. It is what brings the cabinetry to life and provides the mark of great design. Is the era of the white kitchen over? It’s evolved. Spaces still use white, but we are consistently seeing large sections of the cabinetry painted with a strong color to break up the neutral look. More than ever, we are noticing islands or stand-alone pieces painted in dark gray, and many of our clients are choosing to use black high-gloss oil finishes on their cabinetry. I see a shift toward darker rooms with a more masculine mood. Up next? More glass elements and dark metals like bronze and brass, creating a very eclectic collection of materials in one setting. peacockhome.com

JESSICA HELGERSON

JESSICA HELGERSON INTERIOR DESIGN Share the biggest trend you’re seeing. We try to avoid trends in our kitchens and instead have them architecturally reflect the houses they inhabit. I would rather be trendy with lighting and furniture, which is easier to replace. The worst-case scenario is to do the perfect kitchen for this year and then have it be… 2018! What’s your biggest challenge? People live in their kitchens in a way they didn’t in the past. We work on a lot of historic remodels, and it is always a question of how much we can open up the kitchen, incorporate seating areas, etc., without compromising the integrity of the house. Open shelves or closed cabinets? Both! Displaying a few objects nicely on an open shelf is great, but we usually try to place the refrigerator into a wall of cabinetry that conceals what you don’t want to see. jhinteriordesign.com

window

DRESSING Many kitchens feature a window over the sink, but few do it with as much panache as this Alys Beach, Florida, home. For this project, Nashville-based designer Chelsea Robinson drew on the Moorish influence present in the rest of the house. A swooping pointed arch highlights the window, forming a focal point for the kitchen as well as a recessed bay for the sink area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The juxtaposition of white plaster walls with dark cabinetry, warm brass finishes, Moroccan arches and a clay-tile backsplash create the perfect blend of modern elements and old-world patina,â&#x20AC;? she says. chelsearobinsoninteriors.com

SHOPE RENO WHARTON

The architectural firm of Shope Reno Wharton designs by one rule: “Whatever style it is, do it well.” And well they do. The award-winning firm, led by principals Arthur Hanlon, Jerry Hupy, Michael McClung, Don Aitken and John Gassett, creates building blocks of beauty that reflect the location, the owners’ interests, timeless design beliefs and a strong link to craftsmanship and permanence. “The architecture and the design of homes encompasses a wide spectrum of interests and values,” Hanlon says. “And great design is a way to express those unique perspectives.” While its completed projects span from the islands off the coast of Maine to suburban communities and Western ski towns, the common thread remains SRW’s desire to design homes and buildings with character. “We value the ability to produce great architecture in an increasingly regulated world,” Hanlon says. To date, its growing portfolio includes houses, estates, equestrian centers, golf clubhouses, schools, museums, libraries and more. When it comes to SRW’s creative process, the firm varies its approach depending on the differing tastes and styles of its clients, as well as the location and any challenges presented. “At the end of the day, a successful project has inspiring design, dedication to craftsmanship and building, and attention to budgets and schedules,” Hanlon says. “Ultimately, it results in a happy client whose dream was realized through design.”

Arthur Hanlon, Jerry Hupy, Michael McClung, Don Aitken, John Gassett - Principals 18 Marshall Street, Suite 114 South Norwalk, Connecticut 203.852.7250 info@srwol.com shoperenowharton.com

Luxury is something we seek in all of our homes: a place of great comfort and refuge that sets it apart from the ordinary.

Ask the Expert 01

What do you like most about your job? We enjoy the long-standing relationships with our clients as much as the distinctive homes we produce. Both take time and effort to forge and they last a good long time! What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? An engaged client who enjoys the interactive process is an ideal client. Each client articulates their desires differently, so it’s valuable when both parties listen and react.

NY27_Profiles_ShopeReno_1121.indd 1

What is inspiring you now? Great design in smaller packages inspires us. Building smaller things of better quality rather than larger things of lesser quality. Great impact can be made at any scale.

STEVEN HARRIS ARCHITECTS

Of the countless elements that distinguish the thoughtfully conceived, exquisitely rendered high-end residential projects at Steven Harris Architects, perhaps none speaks to the spirit of the award-winning firm like its ability to connect. To its discerning clients. To locations that span the globe, from New York to South Africa. Even to the surrounding spaces that ultimately complement a freestanding building. Part of that connectivity is inherent to a company, launched in 1985, that encompasses interior and landscape design, as well, under the Rees Roberts + Partners banner. But it’s also a testament to the uncanny ability of principal Steven Harris—who has taught architecture at Yale for more than three decades—to collaborate with clients in a way that leads to seamless integration, no matter the scope and complexities of the project. “They all look very different; it’s a function of the location and the owner and how they live,” Harris says. “Our goal is to make what we do seem completely effortless and inevitable.”

Steven Harris, Principal 120 Chambers Street New York, New York 212.587.1108 info@stevenharrisarchitects.com stevenharrisarchitects.com

We employ a deep understanding and respect for architecture, interiors and landscapes.

Ask the Expert How would you describe your clientele? They are bright, interesting professionals involved in businesses, industries and creative disciplines. They are all deeply committed to making the project successful. How do you define luxury? It is that which is effortless and inevitable. Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Most important is that it is precise and beautifully crafted. I would rather see something nicely made out of cardboard than poorly made out of marble.

FLOOR COVERINGS

Ask the Expert Erin Patterson Suarez Executive Account Manager

What is your favorite part of the creative process? Working with color. It is fun to mix natural wood with different stains or finishes to create a beautiful and truly bespoke look for an interior.

What are you working on next? We are always working to introduce new bespoke patterns or finishes, but we also aim to fully customize the flooring experience and share that with the industry.

WALKING ON WOOD

After experiencing many sectors of the design industry, Erin Patterson Suarez settled into the area that attracted and excited her most—floorcoverings. “They are the foundation in a space, and they set the tone,” she says. As the executive account manager for New York-based Walking on Wood, Suarez works with the architecture and design community on hospitality and residential projects alike, delivering unique products that evolve with each design. “All of our flooring is cut, stained and finished to the client’s specifications in our London workshop,” Suarez says. In speaking of a successful project and the design and selection process, Suarez notes the difference between concept and practical application. “The ideas are easy, but translating them to reality can be a challenge,” she says. “We consider it a success when we can accomplish both.” For over 20 years, Walking on Wood has provided bespoke European floorcoverings to homeowners, architects and designers overseas and, now, in the United States as well. In addition to the stunning quality, variety and customization of its products, Walking on Wood boasts an impressive array of services, from CAD renderings and installation to refinishing and maintenance.

Catering to a discerning private and professional clientele, “design aficionados with modern tendencies,” as he describes them, Mitchell defines success as when the firm and clients are equally happy with the outcome. “We put a lot of time and energy into each project, so it’s paramount that we’re satisfied with what we create.”

LINDA RUDERMAN INTERIORS

“Educated, sophisticated and well-traveled with a discerning eye”—an apt description of designer Linda Ruderman’s clients who, for 30 years, have looked to her expertise to create timeless, classic interiors for modern-day living. “My passion for the craft, along with my solid design principles, allows me to create rooms with purpose, practicality, comfort, intimacy and, most importantly, livability for today’s families,” says Ruderman, owner and president of her eponymous firm, Linda Ruderman Interiors. Coast to coast, LRI’s residential and commercial projects showcase its keen attention to detail and ability to seamlessly reinterpret classic style. While clients, communication and a formulaic creative process are key to the firm’s success, the pièce de résistance for Ruderman is “bringing design dreams into reality,” she says. “Every project and interior space must reflect my client’s tastes and needs.” Looking at the firm’s vast portfolio, Ruderman attests her greatest success was the completion of a Moorish compound in Manalapan, Florida. Armed with the full renovation, LRI spent two years on the 30,000-square-foot residence, complete with a 5,000-square-foot guesthouse, eight bedrooms and 12 baths of oceanfront luxury. Currently, the firm is working on a Tribeca loft, a Palm Beach estate and a Mid-Country Greenwich home. No matter the style or location, from suburb to big city, LRI is equipped for the successful completion of any project.

READE STREET STUDIO

Excellence, precision and craftsmanship are the core values by which Reade Street Studio’s pre-eminent design team works. Jason Michael Fay and Aimee Lopez became friends while working at an architecture firm in New York City. After parting ways and pursuing separate careers for a time, they decided to once again join forces and founded Reade Street Studio. Since its inception, the full-service design firm has built a diverse body of work that includes ground-up construction, loft renovations and single-family town houses. With projects throughout New York, from the Upper East Side to the Catskills to the Hamptons, the firm has been hailed for its ability to achieve the nuances of any style while adding touches personal to the client. Yet, Fay points to modernism in architecture and design as a favorite, saying, “It offers a timelessness and an open canvas for exploration.” Focused on building client relationships and establishing a clear vision for each project, Fay, Lopez and their team enjoy watching the initial design concept and material selections unfold throughout the process. “Everything should flow naturally, from pulling together options for materials and furniture to seeing the final product,” Lopez says. “We are influenced, moved and impressed when a design concept is thoughtfully realized and can stand the test of time.”

BENDER

At BENDER, function, budget and design are married to provide the ideal solution for each customer. The company, locally renowned, offers decorative plumbing, kitchen and bath cabinetry, lighting, tile and stone. Led by president David Bender and his children, principal Max Bender and marketing team member Nina Bender, the team begins each client’s journey by asking one central question: Why are you remodeling your space or building a new home? “The answer guides our process, resulting in customized homes in which a client wants to live,” Nina says. With locations in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, Norwalk, Stamford, Torrington and Waterbury, Connecticut, BENDER “keeps up with the heartbeat of its state”—as Nina tells it—and offers its resources to an array of communities. Asked to share the traits inherent to successful design, Nina points to personalization. “I think a good design is one that delivers the emotional message or tone a client wants to live in,” she says. “Our industry uses words like modern, transitional and traditional all the time. Those styles evoke images, but when they are discussed with an individual in mind we can start putting together the real message of the space.” Viewing each design as a conversation between the space and its inhabitants, the BENDER team aims to ensure the conversation is one the client enjoys. “We take on new projects every day, but the customer does this maybe two to three times in their life,” Nina says. “It has to be perfect.”

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS

JANICE PARKER LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS

Even though landscape architect Janice Parker grew up in New York City, she’s always been drawn to the natural world. “I knew every tree on my street and, to this day, my favorite landscapes are along the Hudson River,” she says. “My very first memory is of a flower.” Since creating Janice Parker Landscape Architects in 1984, Parker has cultivated the firm to one of national prominence, completing projects for private and commercial clients across the United States. Key to the firm’s success is its focus on getting people outside into the natural environment. “We want to make the magic that draws them out and keeps them there, happier outside than anywhere else,” she says. The inspiration for its gardens comes from the site, the architecture and the client. “The secret is to discover the essence of the garden the client wants, as well as the true character of the site. But every element matters—edges and transitions, corners, intersections, plants, scents, sounds and designing for the quality of the light,” she continues. Working primarily throughout the Northeast, award-winning JPLA is currently engaged in two historic restorations of 100-plus-year-old landscapes, building ponds and green roofs in Tribeca, as well as several waterside properties. No surprise, sustainability plays a big role. “Today’s landscapes have more color, outdoor cooking and living spaces, along with organic vegetable and soft fruit gardens,” she says, “so sustainable landscaping is pivotal to our success.”

Ask the Expert 01

What is your creative process? I endeavor to express the current intellectual and cultural design I am charged with, without sacrificing the heritage. How do you define luxury? Luxury is innate beauty and the chance to appreciate it—a flower bud, single leaf or beech tree all share the quality of luxury. What would be your dream creative project? A site with a great view and Western sunset; an architect and interior designer in pursuit of craft; quality and innovation; and a client who enjoys the process.

AUSTIN PATTERSON DISSTON ARCHITECTS

One look at the Austin Patterson Disston portfolio and it becomes obvious that architecture, at least in the firm’s highly capable hands, is nothing short of an art form. It’s evident in the simple elegance of a Georgian country home, in the stately drama of a European-style estate on the Connecticut shore and in the open-air splendor of a contemporary summer home in the Hamptons. It’s no wonder that the award-winning firm, launched in 1982 by David Austin and McKee Patterson—and joined by Stuart Disston as a third partner in 1994—continues to draw raves from industry experts and referrals courtesy of immensely satisfied A-list clients throughout the Northeast. “Our work is largely focused on custom projects,” says Disston, who opened a year-round office in Quogue, Long Island, 15 years ago to complement the firm’s base in Southport, Connecticut. “I would not say that the firm has a particular style. I can tell you what others have said: Our work has an intimate scale, even our larger residences do not seem imposing, and our interiors work together and are well tailored in their material detail.” With a staff of 27, including seven registered architects and 15 architects/designers, Austin Patterson Disston offers an all-encompassing range of services at the highest level—from site evaluation and feasibility studies to construction administration, master planning, lighting design, mechanical and structural engineering and landscape architecture.

What are the key influences in your work today? I am inspired every day by my staff and their incredible breadth of interests and opinions. Also, right now, the re-emergence of Brutalism and its tough solitude.

At the heart of Blaze Makoid Architecture is a commitment to modern exploration of the opportunities presented. Founded in 2000 by Blaze Makoid—who had identified his passion for architecture by fourth grade—the firm has continually grown and today boasts 12 exceptional team members. Alongside them, Makoid has built a reputation for expertly executing a modern aesthetic that conveys a strong sense of place. Inspired by a variety of topographies and climates, he relishes the challenge of perfecting any project, from a beach house in the Hamptons to a ski home out West. Asked to describe his favorite styles in which to work, Makoid says, “We try to avoid the idea of style. We approach each new project within its own context and allow the individual client and site to inform our investigations. I think it is more a matter of sequence of layering. Do we layer our ideas on top of the project or is it the other way around?” Collaborating with the clients at every stage, the Blaze Makoid team understands such projects can be a leap of faith and aims to exceed every expectation while crafting a meaningful design. “Great design lifts the spirit in a way that creates peace,” Makoid says. “I love structures that exude serenity. We need more of that in this world. We strive to create something worthwhile.”

Led by principals Mark Stumer and Thomas Mojo, the firm has completed an array of noteworthy projects, including high-end residences, office buildings, corporate headquarters, country clubs, health clubs, spas, educational facilities, hospitals and religious institutions, among others. After originally founding the firm as one purely for architectural services, Stumer and Mojo quickly decided to add interior design to their repertoire. “Our philosophy is that architecture and interior design go hand in hand and neither can exist without the other,” Stumer says. “MSA is one of the few firms that designs both the architecture and the interiors. We have created a department with experts on staff and a full library. Our designers select furniture, fabrics, lighting, paint colors, materials and finishes for each project.” Having won more than 100 national and regional awards, the firm is lauded for its use of proportion, materials and elevations that stimulate the human eye. Still, at its core, the MSA team has one particular intention: achieve the client’s goals. “The attention to our clients’ programs—respecting the importance of their budgets while searching for the best solutions to create an exciting environment—has been instrumental in our firm’s success,” Mojo says.

Ask the Expert

6 Wilton Road Westport, Connecticut 203.984.2607 hbw@aviationaesthetics.com aviationaesthetics.com

What do you like most about your job? Our clients are everywhere, and we will travel to implement the design. Fortunately, I love to travel! I also enjoy beautiful materials and sharing new ideas.

AVIATION AESTHETICS

When a few of Havilande Whitcomb’s prestigious clients asked her to design the interiors of their private airplanes, the owner of Havilande Whitcomb Design decided to fully pursue the new endeavor. Thus, Aviation Aesthetics was founded. For more than 15 years, Whitcomb and her team have created aircraft interiors as luxurious, stunning and functional as those in their clients’ homes. Still, Whitcomb notes the distinctive considerations and inspirations that come with designing a space for the skies. “An airplane does not need to feel as grounded in its surroundings as a building does,” she says. “I love the clean lines and sensibilities of aeronautical design, so working in this field has come very naturally to me. The basic design elements of line, form, shape, color and pattern are distilled to their essence here.” Aside from her clients’ satisfaction and the creative achievements of design, Whitcomb finds the partnerships she forms one of the most rewarding aspects of her job. “We work with some of the finest companies in American manufacturing, technology and craftsmanship,” she says. “There are amazing facilities dedicated to making these airplanes the best they can be, anywhere in the world. It makes me proud.” Combining safety considerations—steel-framed seating, burn testing and nontoxic materials, for example—with aesthetically innovative designs, Whitcomb leads the pack in private aviation interior design.

AviationAesthetics_1116.indd 1

What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? Private planes have typically been beige, so most clients want to get away from that. We love to add color—sometimes subtle, other times bold. How do you define luxury? I suppose nothing is more luxurious than owning your own aircraft, but not everyone enjoys flying. We make spaces more comforting with custom cashmere and alpaca pillows and blankets.

ALL ABOUT:

Color

Color has the extraordinary ability to elicit a particular mood and create a certain ambience, which makes it a powerful tool in home design. But assembling the perfect palette today is way more fun than it has been in previous years when whites and beiges reigned supreme: Lately, homeowners have been more eager than ever to get playful with unexpected hues. Artistic wallpapers, printwearing chairs, eye-catching window treatments, splashy rugs and patterned pillows are all making appearances, whether sparingly or abundantly. Combinations like white with black or navy will forever remain classics, as well as reliable backgrounds for pops of color, but know the rainbow is yours to pursue ever boldly. We turned to some of the nation’s leading design pros for advice on how to approach color with confidence.

When interior designer Eddie Lee proposed surrounding the fireplace of his client’s SoHo loft with a wall of hand-glazed cobalt blue tiles from Clé in Sausalito, California, he originally received pushback. Now the client says it’s one of his favorite aspects of the apartment—due in part to the dramatic backdrop it provides for the Rashid Johnson work that hangs on the right.

MAKE A SPLASH

When it comes to color, there are many approaches. Some designers tend towards neutrals and brighten up the palette with small splashes of color. Others layer different shades of the same hue, while still others live by the mantra “go big or go home.” However, no matter their approach, these designers agree on one thing: Color can make or break a room. Jennifer Post: I use color to complement the room in a strong but understated way. It adds joy to my white elegant apartments. Color is important—it’s not an accessory, so I usually add it through art, not a pillow. For my interiors, we usually choose modern art, which tends to be bold in both color and thought. Nicole Fuller: A color palette is one of the first elements we establish. For more conservative clients, I like pops of color in neutral rooms. For a bolder client, I love doing an entire room or a large fireplace wall in a rich, sexy jewel tone. But color choice is not always tied to personality as one might think! If a client is open to color, I usually present two options: one more conservative and another that is bolder. You would be surprised how many of the quiet, conservative types fall in love with strong bursts of color. Liliane Hart: From the initial conversation with the client, colors are discussed. I’m there to give them homes that reflect themselves. I have some clients who want a light and fresh look, and I’ll give them whites, creams and beiges. Others want bright poppy shades; people are asking for those big splashes of color more and more. I tend to usually use softer hues, but I’m also doing a project in Tribeca that’s all bold shades. I also like layering different hues together.

HOME COOKING

Try as one might, shooing guests out of a kitchen has always proved to be impossible, and modern design thinking means embracing the fact the kitchen will inevitably be the central gathering place of the home. Today, designers are looking to create social yet functional spaces that serve both the chef and visitors alike, as revealed through the following commentary.

Lynne Scalo: All of my clients are cooks, which is why they ask me to come in and help them design a more useful space for them that also looks good. The most important thing to take into consideration while designing a kitchen is the family as a whole and their everyday routine. My clients who have children always need a practical kitchen that serves every member of the family. They always want it to look beautiful and sophisticated; however, having the most beautiful kitchen design does nothing for the family if it doesn’t work with their lifestyle. Scott Sanders: The first question I always ask is: How is the client going to use the kitchen? If the homeowner is a serious chef or cook and they’re going to be entertaining, they need to think about how they’ll use it. Clients always want a large stove, whether or not they cook. And people want special amenities such as wine storage, separate refrigerator drawers and warming drawers. I once worked on a kitchen in conjunction with Christopher Peacock, and after the wife got this beautiful kitchen

she learned to cook and didn’t tell anyone. Then she had us over for dinner and surprised us. It was lovely. Jenny Wolf: Function is what matters most when it comes to a kitchen. There are certain ergonomic factors that come into play, and providing an island you can walk around is always my main goal. The kitchen is such an entertaining space—people like to talk to the chef, and the island will become a bar—and how people will move around it needs to be carefully considered. I have a client who used to order takeout every night. Then when I finished his kitchen, he started bringing in chefs for weekly dinners. If you build it, they will come! Marshall Watson: The experience the end user will have in a kitchen is truly our objective. How is the light, both natural and functional? Where is the sink according to the view? Is the chef in the right position to both prep and cook? Can you serve the plate and have enough space to finish getting dessert ready? Not one thing is most important in a kitchen. Every detail counts. LUXESOURCE.COM / 267

KATE JOHNS Architect

How did the design of this kitchen play into that of the house? The kitchen is in a salvaged 18th-century barn addition to an 18th-century Dutch stone house. Placing the kitchen in the center of the combined structures better connects the stone house with the new open barn structure. The kitchen elements, like the massive chimney housing the range and the enormous marbletopped island, needed to reflect the large scale of the barn. Using varying materials for the cabinets made them blend in, furniture-like, with the open living space.

What do most of your clients look for in a kitchen? A central island. It is a combination area for food prep, dining, drinking, serving and socializing, as well as serves as a desk—so I always make sure there are plenty of outlets and storage.

LX_NY27_EOD_Kitchens.indd 271

For you, what is most important for a kitchen? Flow! Stations should be designed so multiple people can cook and prep at the same time. Also very important is symmetry of the cabinetry. My designs are not ruled by the famous “triangle.” Tall cabinets should be grouped together or placed symmetrically to either side of a window, window sills should be flush with countertops for maximum views and light, and task lighting makes an enormous difference.

Materials

The materials used to construct a residence are more than just the bones of the structure; they become the canvas for the treasures, both practical and decorative, that transform a house into a lovable home. A top trend of late is bringing the outdoors in, as more builders are incorporating natural stone and locally sourced materials in their projects. Yet most intriguing is the personal spaces where they are appearing: a stone wall in the bedroom, a log ceiling for the master bath and built-in brick shelving in the dining room, among others. These organic materials strengthen a home’s connection to the outdoors, a common objective among today’s designs, with scenic views and as much natural light as possible also ranking high on homeowners’ lists of musthaves. Read on to see how the right material can impact a space in the best way.

Tell us about the goal for this bathroom. We had the luxury of doing a gut renovation, yet I wanted it to feel like the tile was part of the original room. Even though the materials are new, the goal was to make it feel older—almost like an old New York City lobby. The solidity of the marble helps achieve that. I would love to use marble in every job! What role do materials play in your work? I was trained as an architect, but being in New York, where there are already so many buildings, I’m not going to be building too much. Rather, I’m doing renovations—and with those, materials really matter. They play an important role in the tactile feel of the place. They evoke emotion and history, and I think they tell the story of the past and present owners. How do the materials you use in historical projects compare with those you use in contemporary ones? Most of my work is contemporary; this town house is the only historical project I’ve ever worked on. In this situation, I insisted on plaster walls, so we used old-style plaster in every public space. We hired a company that does everything on-site. I wanted to make it feel like a real craftsman put it together. It was about going back in time and trying to think about how things were made then. LUXESOURCE.COM / 277

BUILDING BLOCKS

True luxury means using best of the best, and materials are integral to this. Be it wood, stone, textiles or surfaces, each material determines how a home is lived in. High-tech surfaces in a kitchen provide easy functionality, while rich woods create a sense of warmth and luscious textiles add glamour. These experts share how thoughtful materials define a home. Glenn Pushelberg: We are not into making grand design statements in our own homes but rather creating spaces for discovery. The walls of our Amagansett lounge (shown) are covered in rift-cut ash with a white-wash oil finish. On the far wall, the fireplace is clad in honed matchstick stone slabs. Custom vertical-grain western red cedar louvres can be slid over massive floor-to ceiling sliding windows, which can completely open up one side of the house.

Stuart Disston: I’ve worked with a few interesting materials recently. We just restored a midcentury modern house and used solid-form PVC for the whole exterior, which makes it basically bulletproof. There’s another material in which stone is veneered into honeycomb aluminum panels. They can be 1/8- to 1/4-inch-thick, which makes them quite light, but they can bond the panels together so you can’t tell how thin they are.

LX_NY27_EOD_Materials.indd 279

Blaze Makoid: The skills required to execute a contemporary home are much more demanding than what we would call a “traditional” home today. In a modern house, there is nowhere to hide. The work of virtually every trade is visible and is key to pulling off the entire package. We’ve been experimenting with the surface area of our poured-concrete walls, mostly using wood boards of various sizes and grain textures to cast into the foundation walls so the “memory” of wood remains in the surface of the walls. Timothy Brown: I have experienced an increased interest in wider wood-plank floors. My clients are also definitely more open to trying new materials they may not have thought to before. We have been using a lot of Rubio Monocoat, which is a hard-wax floor finish. It is plant-based, nontoxic and made from all-natural ingredients.

Architecture

Just like the best relationships start out with a solid foundation, so, too, do exceptional homes. Without good bones, there is little an interior designer or a landscape architect can do to transform a house from ordinary to extraordinary. It’s up to the architect to balance concrete and steel with the native site or find breathing room in a city brownstone by envisioning floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a courtyard. Architects are challenged with marrying exteriors and interiors to create a seamless look, anticipating how each space will need to function from the start and incorporating the right features to maximize the potential of every room. The structural details—clean lines, intricate woodworking or even a spiral staircase— are the first things to define the character of a house and some of the last things departing guests forget when they leave. Whatever the style, be it traditional or modern, a well-constructed abode should serve as a steadfast yet visionary beginning for a standout home.

For this Bridgehampton home, architect William Minnear did a modern take on the traditional Colonial style. “The house has two rooflines, which makes it a little different from the houses more typically found in the Hamptons,” he says. “The unique roof gives it a more contemporary feel.” Multiple socializing areas on the patio include a dining table from RH and a teak bench from Crate & Barrel.

1. Authenticity is paramount: If the exterior is a tribute to Mediterranean style, the genre’s ornate columns and archways should be introduced in the interiors. 2. Create an entrance with a statement-making staircase, with features such as a floating stairwell or risers highlighted in a mosaic tile. 3. Emphasize natural light by rethinking the home’s fenestration using clerestories, skylights and glass French doors. 4. Building materials should serve as an ode to the area’s historical character, such as classic brick in a New York condo. 5. Don’t sacrifice function for style: When building a home from scratch, focus first on how it will facilitate your lifestyle.

STUART NAROFSKY Architect

Tell us about your intentions for this residence. Our goal was to integrate the house into the site. This creates a melding of indoors and outdoors. At three points, the outdoors penetrate the home by passing through and under, arriving at a central courtyard. The overall shape of the plan—almost like the letter J—also forces views back to the house. In other words, from inside the home, you see the outside through another interior or through an outdoor opening puncturing the structure. How do you approach a project? Every one is unique. My methodology is always the same, though: I start with what I refer to as my “threedimensional chessboard.” I place people and furniture in three-dimensional spaces as I envision them in the landscape. I then draw walls and windows, creating enclosure or transparency. It’s about planning around how people would exist on the site. Our homes are informed by the occupants and their relationship to the land. What influences your designs? We don’t start with a certain style. The design evolves pending different influences: required functional configurations, the clients’ desires and, of course, the site itself. The site is key, especially with respect to natural light, which plays a huge role. LUXESOURCE.COM / 285

Homeowners Rick and Robin Shobin brought on builder John Bilotti and interior designer Brendan KwinterSchwartz to update a 1980s addition to a 1930s log cabin. The screened porch between the two wings, which was originally part of the log cabin and now has sleek glass doors adjoining it to the kitchen, has proved to be the most popular gathering spot in the house, even when the temperature drops.

MAKING SPACE

Great architecture stems from an intimate knowledge of not just what clients want but also the site itself. Understanding the surrounding environment serves as a basis to creating a home that showcases views, receives maximum sunlight and has a natural flow throughout, as these experts attest. John Bilotti: The house above was built in the 1930s and had an addition in the 1980s, but melding everything together wasn’t too complicated; it just involved seeing how the styles could blend together. The biggest challenge was building the outdoor kitchen, which we had to blend in with the landscaping. We wanted to give the concrete some texture, so we used hemlock boards because when they deteriorate they get these wonderful lines. It flowed beautifully together. Dinyar Wadia: There are many ways to make a house seem centuries old. The most important things to keep in mind are the materials and proportions and to select a style that works for the owner yet seems

rooted in time. For example, our clients wanted a house that was flooded with light (opposite). This led us toward the Jacobean style—it’s a traditional style with large windows that doesn’t feel modern.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: John Bilotti, Dinyar Wadia, Don H. Aitken

Don H. Aitken: Our approach to space planning begins with listening to our clients. Many of our clients are leaning toward floor plans with fewer but larger, more open spaces. Some of our houses appear, from the exterior, to follow a more traditional room layout, but many have open, flowing floor plans. By combining interior spaces and activities and developing connections to exterior spaces, like covered porches or terraces, we can enhance our clients’ lifestyles. LUXESOURCE.COM / 287

Living Spaces

If there’s one room in the house that most embraces a homeowner’s personality, it’s the living room. This is where choices such as bold color and crazy patterns can come out to play and where a homeowner’s love of antiques, modern furniture or artwork are as welcome in the space as a close friend. Here, we look at the innovative ways designers are using accessories and statement furniture to create a customized style that’s both relaxing and inviting for family members and guests alike.

To embrace the Hamptons’ legendary natural light, interior designer Lien Luu opted for an overall palette of white, beige, cream and pale gray for this Southampton guesthouse. Luu chose overscaled furnishings to create a comfortable vibe; the custom tufted sofa, upholstered in a durable Great Plains fabric from Holly Hunt, is so deep it mimics a bed.

Designer Thomas Jayne commissioned painter Anne Harris to recreate on this living room’s walls the bright leaves and blooms that once graced the silk of an antique gown. A portrait of Marie Antoinette from the homeowner’s collection makes a powerful statement against the playful backdrop. “It was over-the-top and fun,” Jayne says. “People are often afraid to hang things on patterned walls, but I think they actually complement each other.”

CREATING THE MOOD

There are so many integral factors that go into designing a living space that satisfies a client’s wants and needs. Materials, color and furniture are just a few necessities that define a place for family and friends to gather. Creating an ideal reflection of a client is about finding that perfect balance of all aspects, and we turned to the following designers for their thoughts on how to put it all together. Thomas Jayne: Beauty was the point of inspiration for this living room (shown), as the pattern on the walls is based on an 18th-century dress silk; I love the play of the flowers against the architecture. The key to any living space is to have a comfortable place to sit and talk. If you don’t have that, then you don’t have a living space. After that, it’s what captures your eye. There should always be something to focus on. Jesse Carrier: There are three components to the perfect living space. First, there needs to be a thoughtful furniture plan and a layout tailored to the homeowner’s lifestyle, be it a family of six or a bachelor. Second is finding the right scale and balance of furnishings. Third, color and light come into play— there must be an understanding of what the room will be used for, and that appropriate mood should be achieved via creative use of color, light and texture. Antonino Buzzetta: The key ingredient to the perfect living space is to have that

LX_NY27_EOD_LivingSpaces.indd 295

one bold piece you absolutely love. Whether that is a sofa, a chair, a light fixture or a piece of artwork, it should be amazing because when you adore it, nothing else matters. l’m drawn to strong, bold colors, but I acknowledge some people prefer more subtle, neutral tones. When going that route, what you lack in color you should make up for with rich textures—a mash-up of slubby wools, smooth cashmeres, velvets, woods, metals and textured wallpapers. But have at least one pop of color, please! Ellie Cullman: We are always inspired by our clients’ aesthetic preferences. Lifestyle is key when doing floor plans and selecting hard and soft materials for a residence. Creating a desired mood or atmosphere is accomplished by using every element of design in concert: paint and wallpaper, upholstery and curtain fabrics, carpets, furnishings, artwork, tabletops and bookcases. As designers, we are essentially alchemists—transforming all of the above elements in an artful and appealing way.

The Sloane sofa by Vladimir Kagan Couture adds to the luxurious setting. Kravet’s Riad Caribbean fabric, used for the drapes, and the Lee Jofa Labyrinth Duck Egg upholstery on the Kagan High Barrel chairs introduce a touch of color.

STEFFANI AARONS Designer

Tell us about your muse for this design. We took inspiration from the water views, as they are so stunning. We tried to keep the interiors quiet, yet fun, and make sure they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t detract from the water. My client had been on a recent trip to India and brought back these incredible silk pillows in soft hues of turquoise and orange. She expressed these were her favorite colors, and we wove them into the color story of the home. How do you create a certain mood? I find multiple types of lighting in the room is the best way to create atmosphere. For example, you want a mixture of down lights, hanging pendants, floor lamps, table lamps and perhaps some architectural cove lighting to really balance out a space and allow it to change throughout the day with the sunlight. What are the most important elements to take into account? I like to understand how my clients want to live in the space. Asking if they entertain a lot is always at the top of the list of my questions. Multiple seating areas in a room work very nicely for both intimate occasions and larger gatherings. I tend to add additional benches or ottomans to areas that can be pulled in when needed but that quietly hold places when not. Space planning is about achieving the best orientation for each room.

ALL ABOUT:

Whether your home sits upon an expansive waterfront lot or offers just a taste of the outdoors via a sky-high terrace, there’s no wrong way to enjoy a bit of fresh air, so long as you’re doing it in style. Outdoor spaces represent an extension of a residence’s interior and a homeowner’s personal aesthetic, and as such they should be approached with just as much care and attention to detail. What do you envision for the ideal sanctuary in the sun? Regardless of size, the opportunities are nearly endless—from a cozy gathering spot with an electric fireplace or fire pit to a water-lover’s paradise with an infinity pool or elements like a fountain and a soaking tub. Furniture pieces for alfresco dining and lounging are a must, while manicured landscaping with the perfect plants sets the overall tone. Here, experts offer their tips for designing your own great outdoors.

For a Mecox Bay vacation home, landscape designer Chris LaGuardia created a plan to replace the original deck with a more compact version made of mahogany. He then removed invasive plant species and installed native grasses and vegetation. The adjustable beach chairs are from Dedon.

HAL GOLDSTEIN Architect

How does this pool house (right) play into the architecture of the main residence? The main home is a Shakerstyle house, and the pool house is a scaleddown version of this. Tell us how landscaping relates to your designs. Landscape is a critical component of the architecture, and it is conceived along with the home. It is both the foreground and background to the architecture. It can play into the scale of the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for example, is the home nestled into trees, or is it in a clearing with low plantings around? Landscape can also be used to soften or blur the edges of a volume. Do you work closely with landscapers to figure out how the design of the home and the outdoor design work with each other? Yes. Here, we worked very closely with landscape architect Joe Tyree, whom we have collaborated with on several projects. Joe brings a sensitivity to both the architecture and the landscape design and is able to work harmoniously between the two.

For an early-1900s home in western New Jersey, landscape architect Carolle Huber had craftsmen build hardscaping using stone hauled from one of the client’s family’s home in Pennsylvania. She and Nelson Castro of Jersey Gardens Landscaping planted roses, hydrangeas and grasses. The custom St. Tropez pool chaises are from Kingsley-Bate.

At designer Iris Dankner’s Hamptons getaway, landscape architect Tom Janczur incorporated ferns and low-flowering plants “that seem like a woodland carpet,” he says. “Since the home sits on the main street, I tried to avoid making it seem like we stuck in a garden where it doesn’t belong.”

NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

Great outdoor design is about several things: understanding the environment, respecting the architecture and interiors and knowing how the clients will use the space. The popularity of transitional spaces that merge the indoors and outdoors means now, more than ever, all aspects of the design team need to work together to create the ideal outdoor space. These experts explain more. Carolle Huber: For this project (opposite), I used the classics—hydrangeas, roses and boxwoods, and we wanted a look that wasn’t fussy, so we edited them down to be very simple. The first thing we determine with every project is what plants will work in those site conditions and, of course, what complements the house. I am basically creating a pedestal for the house to sit on, and the house is giving me clues. Tom Janczur: The main determination for the landscape is what the client is looking for in the general “feeling” of the property and gardens. If the client wants a casual, beachy feeling, then I would direct them to go with ornamental grasses and softcolored perennials; all plantings should have some movement to them to give a sense of ease. If the client wants a more formal feeling, then the use of boxwood in geometric plantings and more ridged plant material would work better.

Edmund Hollander: We always look at the context of the landscape. We also need to consider the style of architecture. And we always want to find plants that will grow the best with the least work—absolutely minimizing the need for any toxic chemicals. The great thing about working in the Hamptons is the diversity of plants and landscapes that thrive in the area. The one factor that plays out in most landscapes is focusing on plantings that look their best in the summer months, when families are in residence.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Carolle Huber, Tom Janczur, Edmund Hollander, Elizabeth Lear

Elizabeth Lear: The current trends are toward sustainability, less chemical dependency and naturalism. Given these trends, the Hamptons has always been a dynamic place to garden, as the garden consumer is generally sophisticated and we have fantastic nurseries and sources for everything from containers and sculptures to trade masons and installers.

Interior designer Vicente Wolf and his associate, David Rogal, encountered both advantages and challenges when charged with the renovation of a seventh-floor Manhattan residence. A 600-square-foot terrace runs the entire width and offers an expansive vista. To soften the setting without obstructing the view, a mix of grasses, juniper and lavender were used.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR DESIGNING OUTSIDE

THIS PAGE: WOLF/ROGAL PHOTO: COURTESY VICENTE WOLF. OPPOSITE: WELLES PHOTO: ERIC PIASECKI. DEMARCHE PHOTO: JEFF MCNAMARA.

1. Clearly define areas for different activities such as for dining, lounging or gardening. 2. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overcrowd the areas; allow for breathing room and space to wander. 3. Incorporate native plantings, which will appear to have grown naturally and thrive in the environment. 4. Be sure to provide cover from the sun when designing for the outdoors, so that guests will have a place to stay cool alfresco. 5. If you have a killer view, build the home around it and ensure it remains unobstructed when creating outdoor spaces.

Landscape architect Halsted Welles strives to create terraces that are “serenely enveloped in vegetation with a selected view of the outside world,” he says. To this end, for the terrace of a downtown Manhattan penthouse, he added a steel pergola for vines such as wisteria, grape and clematis. The plantings include evergreens that provide color in the winter along with arrangements in urns that change every season.

Landscape architect Burton DeMarche used a Cold Spring home’s lush setting as an extension of the architecture’s clever cantilevering, building terraced patios into the property to provide different levels for optimal viewing of the Hudson River beyond the free-form pool.

JUST LIKE A LEOPARD’S SPOTS NEVER CHANGE, NEITHER DOES THE APPEAL OF THIS TRIED-AND-TRUE CLASSIC PATTERN. WHETHER THE PRINT IS MAKING A BOLD INTERIORS STATEMENT—SIMILAR TO LATE FRENCH WRITER AND PLAYWRIGHT JEAN COCTEAU’S STUDY DECORATED BY MADELEINE CASTAING—OR GRACING TODAY’S HIGH-FASHION CATWALKS, LIKE THAT OF TOM FORD’S READY-TO-WEAR AUTUMN/WINTER 2016 LINE, THIS PRIMITIVE YET SPIRITED STAPLE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY TO REMAIN REFRESHINGLY RELEVANT WHILE INSTANTLY ADDING A LUXURIOUS TOUCH TO EVERY ENSEMBLE OR SPACE.

SAGAPONACK SOUTH WITH FOREVER VIEWS OF POND AND OCEAN Sagaponack. Magnificently designed by Bates Masi Architects and overlooking a coastal pond and the ocean beyond make this an incredible find! By creating a homogeneous relationship between the architecture and nature, one is constantly reminded of the place in which they reside. Natural elements are invited into the home and are experienced on a daily basis, thus becoming a part of everyday life. From the glass-enclosed bridges that connect the towers, one can appreciate the dramatic spaces; the communal spaces have flexibility to flow to the outdoors and extend onto decks by means of full height sliding glass doors, also offering maximum privacy as four guest bedrooms are separated from living areas and master suite. The language expressed by the exterior siding translates to the design of the interior spaces as well. This visual link expresses the seamless connection between interior and exterior as one travels throughout the house. Spectacular and totally unique property and design. Also available as an incredible development opportunity with foundation and building plans, price upon request. Fully Constructed: $16.995M WEB# 19292
