FLEETWOOD WINDOWS & DOORS

The ‘Cadillac’ of Sliding Glass Doors Fleetwood Windows & Doors started in 1961 with the vision of being the best aluminum sliding door company in the Western United States. In fact, the company name was inspired by one of Cadillac’s most elite luxury sedans, the Fleetwood, establishing its reputation as the “Cadillac” of sliding glass doors. With engineering at the forefront of Fleetwood’s success, the company has continued to bring innovative design concepts to the manufacturing floor for more than 50 years. From windows and hinge doors, to traditional sliding and multi-slide glass doors, Fleetwood prides itself on designing and manufacturing the finest windows and doors for modern luxury homes through its national, high-end window dealers. Whether for energy savings, comfort and security, weather protection, budget or style, the residential and commercial applications are endless. Ever-connected with the design community, this family-owned and -operated company is rooted in more humble beginnings. “I grew up sweeping floors, making price books and working in the factory,” general manager Mark McCoy says. “But I’ve always had Fleetwood blood coursing through my veins.” Today, Fleetwood’s dedication to architectural integrity and the meticulous refinement of the “little things” has distinctively positioned the company as a true example of the American dream.

“WE CONTINUE TO BE DRIVEN BY ARCHITECTS AS THEY PUSH THE ENVELOPE FOR MORE EXPANSIVE WINDOW AND DOOR SYSTEMS, WITH MORE GLASS AND LESS FRAME.” FLEETWOOD ... LEADING THE WAY IN GREEN With an unwavering commitment to eco-friendly manufacturing, Fleetwood leads the fenestration market with the greenest multi-slide and sliding pocket doors in the United States. “Our aluminum products are manufactured using recycled aluminum and glass, and are offered in inert coatings and finishes,” McCoy says. “To lessen our environmental impact even more, 100 percent of our aluminum scrap is recyclable.” In addition, Fleetwood is the leader in providing LEED-certified homes with “green-friendly” windows and doors!

THE SHAPE OF THINGS

I’ve always been fascinated by the built environment— the influence that a single structure, a street or an entire neighborhood can elicit and how that manifests over time. Take Miami Beach, for example, which happens to be the city where I’m drafting this letter. Arguably, architecture is what largely helped evolve this mangroveand-mosquito-laden barrier island into one of America’s most vibrant urban destinations. What began in the early 1900s with developer Carl Fisher’s Mediterranean Revival architecture segued into a tropical adaptation of Art Deco in the ’30s and was enhanced by a defining postwar extravagant Modernism movement pioneered by Morris Lapidus. Today, Miami’s bold, expanding skyline is a progression of those ideas realized through the lens of architecture’s most esteemed names: Herzog & de Meuron, Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas and Frank Gehry, to name a few. In this issue, we give props to architecture’s innovators and icons: We ID five famous house museums to put on your bucket list; shine a spotlight on of-the-moment residential architects; and examine the connection between Los Angeles’ imaginative structures and the art world. As Winston Churchill famously said, “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” From the residences that we inhabit to the buildings we work in and the public spaces that surround us, design matters.

memo SHARON SUMMER PUBLISHER

What’s great about New York is that you can find design resources and inspiration in just about every corner of the Tri-State Area. For the second year, we feature our “Design Brooklyn” advertorial section, in which we spoke with Brooklyn’s creative artisans, notable designers and business owners. Brooklyn continues to represent what’s new and edgy in design with a special vibe all its own. We also headed east to a place with a very different point-of-view— the Hamptons. While summer heats up on the east end, for homeowners there’s a groundswell of activity in spring that leads up to high season. In our “Design Hamptons” advertorial section, architects and designers who live and work in the Hamptons offer their insight and perspective on all things related to design in this summer playground. Coming up this summer, Luxe Interiors + Design will be the lead media sponsor for the Hamptons Contemporary, the only design and decor fair in the Hamptons. The upcoming season is a flurry of activity in New York, and we hope you will join us at some of our many upcoming events as we continue to support the industry. Enjoy this issue!

CONTRIBUTORS

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

LAURA MOSS Photographer / New York If you could shoot anywhere in the world, where would it be? Dubai or Shanghai. I think amazing things are being done in these places. On your design wish list: Furniture pieces that can hide all signs of technology and still be beautiful, as well as a great comfortable chair that is cat-proof. Also, I would love to own the perfect ceiling fan. Having grown up in South Florida without air conditioning, ceiling fans were definitely important, but I find that their design is sometimes lacking. Favorite book on your nightstand: I really love Steven Pinker’s The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined. Preferred superpower: The ability to freeze time. Best career advice you’ve received: “It’s freelance—you are free to work with whomever you want.” I would not say it’s the best advice ever, but I do love it as it makes me step back and see how lucky I am to be in such a creative field and not stuck in an office forced to follow a specific career track.

JOANNE FURIO

Writer / San Francisco Whose work are you most influenced by design-wise? Charles and Ray Eames. My kids say that I’m stuck in the 1970s, but it’s midcentury elements that I love the most: low-slung houses, groovy furniture, tropical houseplants, mod clothes, heavy eye makeup and sky-high hair—all of it. Ideal work trip: Being sent on a travel assignment to India, Japan or Mongolia. All my Asian friends tell me I need to go to the Far East. Prized possessions: A Donghia deep armchair I got at a sample sale in New York, my grandmother’s marble column table lamps and a sterling-silver bubble ring from the ’60s that had been my aunt’s. Most interesting person you’ve ever met: Joshua Miele, a member of the board at Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco; he’s blind and creates all these new technologies for the visually impaired. If not a writer, I would be… A landscape architect. I love gardens and stone.

LX_COM13_Contributors.indd 98

NATHAN KIRKMAN Photographer / Chicago My biggest creative influences come from… Anyone that shows a passion and continues to work at it. Who are some of the most fascinating people you’ve come across in your life? Author Ray Bradbury, designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy and photographer Tim Hursley are all at the top of my list. I would love to one day own... An Hermès Leica camera, La Cornue’s Château 150 in carbon fiber and a photograph by Larry Sultan. What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? I would most likely tell myself to take a course on business management—and to buy some Apple stock. Dream assignment: Anything that allows me to travel to new places!

CHRISTINE DEORIO Writer / Denver Design obsession: Benjamin Moore’s Homestead Green paint, which I discovered while visiting floral designer Frances Harjeet’s Queen Anne-style home in Denver. It’s elegant and soothing, especially in a room with lots of soft, natural light. If you could interview anyone, who would it be? Terry Gross, host of NPR’s Fresh Air radio show, who has spoken with many fascinating people during her career. I’m always impressed by how prepared she is for every interview and by her ability to ask probing questions in such a friendly way. I’d like to ask her how she prepares, how she handles difficult or taciturn guests, and how she stays so well-informed about everything. What’s intriguing you now in the world of design? The revitalization of Rust Belt cities. I love a good comeback story. The word “Detroit” used to conjure images of once-magnificent buildings in ruins. Now, many of those buildings are hip restaurants, and the city is coming to be known as “the new Brooklyn” for its influx of creatives and burgeoning art and design scenes.

D R A F T

It’s all in the details for leading architects across the country. For Duncan McRoberts, it’s all about paying tribute to classic masters (above); for Cade Hayes, the nuances of the southwestern landscape lead him to design inspired structures with intriguing aesthetic facets (right). Matthew Grzywinski’s and Matt Berman’s works (opposite, from left to right respectively) stand out for their distinct uses of shapes, colors and materials.

RADAR / ARCHITECTURALLY SPEAKING HUNTER FLEETWOOD ‡

▼ MELISSA BRILLHART

Los Angeles | fleetwoodfernandez.com

Miami | brillhartarchitecture.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Hunter Fleetwood believes in the power of the built environment on affecting human action and thought. His restaurants, homes and commercial projects, created in conjunction with partner Mariapaz Fernandez-Trillo, demonstrate a forward-thinking—and often whimsical—point of view.

WHY WE LOVE HER: Inspired by everything from childhood woodworking projects to the Shaker structures of New Hampshire, Melissa Brillhart works in tandem with her husband, Jacob, designing homes that place a heavy emphasis on their surrounding contexts. ON THE HORIZON: The couple is currently working on a Bahamian cottage for themselves—a 600-square-foot residence that pulls inspiration from historic Bahamian architecture as well as the Creole Cabinet-Loggia typology—and celebrating the publication of Jacob’s new book, titled Voyage Le Corbusier: Drawing on the Road.

ON THE HORIZON: At the moment, Fleetwood is thrilled about undertaking a residential project for a young family in L.A. that is involved in the arts, which is allowing him to push his creativity to the max. IN HIS WORDS: “While we are supporters of the heightened influx of technology both in the design process and construction methods, on every project we advocate for the inclusion of artisanal quality craftsmanship. When we are successful, you will see form that is handmade and machine-fabricated in juxtaposition. We find it a captivating dichotomy.”

 DUNCAN MCROBERTS

Kirkland, WA | mcroberts-associates.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Duncan McRoberts pours over archeological records, measured drawings and books before building a precedent file that invokes the design principles and tectonic characters of the master works he studies. He then crafts work that aims to achieve a perfect balance in composition, beauty and proportion. ON THE HORIZON: McRoberts is designing a boarding school—in classic Oxbridge-style architecture—and a new coastal-traditional neighborhood development on 80 acres in Oregon.

MATTHEW GRZYWINSKI ▲

New York | gp-arch.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: For his architectural works, Matthew Grzywinski embraces sustainability, function and his aesthetic experience to design spaces that exhibit a sumptuous minimalism. His partnership with fellow architect Amador Pons has birthed a newfound design philosophy based on the principles of beauty, innovation and detail. ON THE HORIZON: Grzywinski’s firm is beginning construction on a residential building in London in addition to a new apartment building in the East Village of Manhattan and a structure on the campus of Cambridge University. IN HIS WORDS: “We try not to chase innovation or novelty for its own sake. Our struggle to marry the rigorous with the exuberant yields interesting results.”

LX_COM13_Radar_ArchitectsToWatch.indd 104

IN HIS WORDS: “The value of artistic import lies in an ability to mediate between ourselves and the schema of our life experiences. Our work is meant to promise harmony of place.”

 CADE HAYES

Tucson | dustdb.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Cade Hayes founded the firm Dust in 2007 with co-collaborator Jesús Edmundo Robles Jr. and worked diligently to put together a creative team that is deeply connected to its southwestern desert roots. The firm’s architecture, furniture, hardware and jewelry reflect a boundless respect for natural materials and exhibit a serene display of restraint. ON THE HORIZON: Dust is working on its first public work: a pavilion for the Tucson Audubon Society’s Paton Center for Hummingbirds. IN HIS WORDS: “We are not trying to keep up with current thinking or cool trends; we are simply trying to do really thoughtful, sensitive work. We’d rather be classic than new.”

Los Angeles architects Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, who redefined beach house living with the Vault House (shown here and at bottom), are also reinventing ways to show art, as with their work on the “Moholy-Nagy: Future Present” exhibition at LACMA.

Los Angeles is known worldwide as a place for creatives. In your opinion, what makes the city such a popular destination for artists these days? Artists are drawn by the presence of an arts scene: lots of other artists, art schools and the explosion of new galleries. This scene exists

PRODUCED BY MARY ORE

here in part because L.A. is still affordable relative to other art capitals. In some neighborhoods, artists are still able to find houses with garages and large yards for making large works, and in downtown L.A. and some other industrial areas, they can find the kinds of studios that have long

attracted artists: unplanned, sometimes illegal, but spacious and affordable live-work spaces in old warehouses and light industrial buildings. Which neighborhoods are you finding artists migrating to for their living spaces and studios? Currently, they’re migrating to areas in L.A. that are still affordable and have dwelling spaces with room to make art, including parts of downtown L.A. as well as Boyle Heights, Highland Park, Frogtown, Elysian Park and Inglewood. Often, though, these migrations can cause pushback from the existing communities in several of these areas over fears of gentrification. Has this explosion of artistic talent affected the cultural and architectural dynamic of the city? Yes, definitely. We’re seeing a number of architects who are collaborating closely with artists. For example, Jimenez Lai, of Bureau Spectacular, recently collaborated with New York artist Grayson Cox on “Speechbuster / 99 Chairs,” an exhibit commissioned by Storefront for Art and Architecture with a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Peter Zellner’s design for the West Hollywood gallery of Matthew Marks,

Are there any local architects that we should be keeping an eye on? Lorcan O’Herlihy is designing some of the most interesting multifamily dwellings in West Hollywood and Los Angeles, like his most recent, SL11024, in Westwood Village. Tom Wiscombe, too, an architect and teacher at SCI-Arc, is bringing an experimental aesthetic to his projects, including the upcoming, private Main Museum

in downtown L.A. Then, there are Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, from Johnston Marklee, who are designing extremely refined private homes and art spaces, including the Menil Drawing Institute that will open at The Menil Collection in Houston in October. Finally, LA-Más is a firm that aims to improve residential and public spaces in low-income areas but maintains a strong Pop sensibility while doing so. Favorite public buildings in Los Angeles? Studio Jantzen and Behnisch Architekten’s Parking Structure #6 in Santa Monica and Lehrer Architects’ Central Park Recreation Pool in South L.A. top my list. The colorful parking structure reflects city planners’ goal of beautifying an otherwise banal or even ugly building type. Not only is it intended to accommodate large numbers of bikes and electric cars as well as ordinary cars, it has the added feature of a dramatic red staircase on the façade, aimed at encouraging drivers to walk up and down stairs. For his part, Michael Lehrer drew on California artists Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud and their “beautiful coloration,” he says, as well as David Hockney’s “ebullient turquoise water,” when he and his team designed the pool to replace one that had been closed to locals for 12 years. The design was built on a budget but proves that imagination can go a long way in creating an attractive public venue in a community that had long needed one. Why have you chosen radio as your preferred method of communicating with the architecture community? What does this medium add to such a traditionally visual conversation? I was originally drawn to radio because I like asking questions and hearing smart people talk—specifically as it relates to communicating architecture, which is, of course, a visual medium. Paradoxically, radio frees one from images and gives the interviewer time to explore, without visual distraction, the ideas behind and the human impact of buildings.

And by the same token, has the architectural dynamic of the city had any effect on the community of new artists who are now calling it home? I’m seeing some intriguing things happening in museum and gallery design at the moment. For example, the installation that architecture firm Johnston Marklee created for the “Moholy-Nagy: Future Present” show at LACMA breaks from the tendency to shroud modern and contemporary art in white-painted rooms. The exhibit features a subtly dramatic layout, with a sequence of galleries that move through the artist’s career, denoted by slate gray walls at the start and progressing through time to light gray. Into the walls of these galleries, they’ve cut doorways that line up in a slashing diagonal, making for a moment of surreal visual drama in an otherwise restrained design.

PARKING STRUCTURE

too, is noteworthy and exemplifies California minimalism, while Kulapat Yantrasast of wHY, who has worked with many artists, has designed Christie’s brand-new multipurpose flagship space in Beverly Hills. Finally, I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of the union between Frank Escher and Ravi GuneWardena, of Escher GuneWardena Architecture, and artist Sharon Lockhart, who was selected to represent Poland at this year’s Venice Biennale.

WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF YOU COULD VISIT YOUR FAVORITE ARCHITECTS AT HOME? THESE FAMOUS DOMICILES-TURNED-MUSEUMS PROVIDE THE ANSWER TO NEARLY EVERY DESIGN LOVER’S MOST BURNING QUESTION. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

 FALLINGWATER Mill Run, Pennsylvania Probably the best-known residence on our list, Fallingwater is a testament to everything architecture enthusiasts have come to love about Frank Lloyd Wright: attention-grabbing design that works with and not against its environment. Designed for department-store magnates, the Kaufmann family, Fallingwater is currently the only Wright-designed house that is open to the public with all of its original furniture and artwork on display precisely as they appeared upon the residence’s completion in 1939. REASON TO VISIT: Thanks to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, in collaboration with local arts and architecture organizations, the house provides a variety of immersive, educational experiences through a series of lectures and residencies—so it’s perfect for Wright fans who want a more in-depth look at the architect’s creative process.

EAMES HOUSE  Pacific Palisades, California The final home of legendary husbandand-wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames, this midcentury jewel box was a veritable creative playground for the couple thanks to its two-box modular structure: one of which contained their living quarters and the other which functioned as a working studio. Constructed in 1949, the building boasts a limited material palette of glass and steel with warm wooden accents throughout the interiors and pops of green from the verdant environs. REASON TO VISIT: If you’ve ever had the inclination to celebrate the bygone wedding of an envy-inducing couple you’ve never met, each year the Eames Foundation—which is responsible for the supervision of and conservancy efforts for the Pacific Palisades home—hosts a Members Appreciation Day during the week of June 20th, Charles and Ray’s anniversary, complete with guided tours and juried design competitions.

RADAR / ITINERARY FARNSWORTH HOUSE 

Plano, Illinois

One of only three residential homes in the United States designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Farnsworth House is considered to be one of the purest examples of the pioneering architect’s bare-bones modern style. Comprised of one sole room, the weekend retreat was originally designed for prominent Chicago nephrologist Dr. Edith Farnsworth with floor-to-ceiling windows that facilitate an easy communion with nature. REASON TO VISIT: You’ll want to make it out to this handsome piece of architectural history before it gets the full Hollywood treatment: Actors Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal have recently signed on to appear in a feature film that will fictionalize the highly-speculated-upon relationship between Farnsworth and Mies van der Rohe that developed during the home’s construction.

 GROPIUS HOUSE Lincoln, Massachusetts The name of German architect Walter Gropius is nearly synonymous with the movement he is widely regarded to have founded: Bauhaus. And the home he built for himself and his family in Massachusetts may well have been the structure that helped cement the style as part of architecture’s canon. Built in 1938, the house blends traditional New England architectural elements like wood and brick with modernist materials like glass, plaster and chrome and today feels like a perfectly preserved time capsule. REASON TO VISIT: The Gropius House is a sight to behold any time, but when admired at night thanks to monthly events hosted by Historic New England, the organization responsible for the conservation of the property, the home is transformed by the architect’s own innovative lighting scheme.

LX_COM13_Radar_HouseMuseums .indd 130

While The Glass House is only one of 14 structures on late architect Philip Johnson’s massive 49-acre property in Connecticut, it’s easy to see why it’s also the most beloved: its wallless construction makes it feel more like a dream of a house than a house itself. For all its avant-garde flourishes, though, its interior provides a fairly traditional living space inhabited by Johnson himself when he was in residence there from 1949 to 2005. REASON TO VISIT: Although the house is only open to the public May through November, it makes up for lost time with a near-dizzying schedule of events and art exhibits. Last year’s landscape installation by the artist Yayoi Kusama, for example, transformed the property’s newly restored pond into a fluid art gallery thanks to the addition of 1,300 floating steel sculptures.

GLOBAL GEM

FOR THIS YEAR’S ANNUAL DINING BY DESIGN EVENT FOR DIFFA (DESIGN INDUSTRIES FOUNDATION FIGHTING AIDS), THE TEAM FROM DEKAR DESIGN DREAMED UP AN ITALIAN PALAZZO-INSPIRED LOUNGE THAT LET GUESTS FEEL RIGHT AT HOME. WRITTEN BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH

Tell us about your dining space. Inspired by the late architect and designer Renzo Mongiardino, we created a dining room that evokes the mood of his Baroque palazzo in Genoa, Italy, but with our own modern twist. Our goal was to make the space feel like you were entering someone’s home. We achieved this through the layering of Italian and Indian patterns amongst the more modern elements of the space. Mongiardino said it best: “Illusion comes into being as part of the pleasure.”

Let’s talk about the furnishings and fabrics that you sourced. The jumping-off point for this warm, moody space was a multi-textured dining table expertly crafted in leather and stone by the natural quartz experts at Cambria. Next, we turned to Arte International for the wallcovering to add depth and a feeling of extravagance. Our friends at Kravet provided an assortment of exotic textiles for upholstering the pillows, banquette and canopy, while Hubbardton Forge lighting helped contribute to the overall jewel-box effect.

Designers Caroline Grant (above, at left) and Dolores Suarez created a space for this year’s Dining by Design event that was both welcoming and stylish. Place settings by The Tabletop Company (far left) and a banquette by Cambria (shown left with pillows in Kravet fabric) helped create the refined yet whimsical look.

Finally, a collection of artwork from Beloosesky Gallery gives the space a personal touch. And those table settings? Essential to the design was making the tabletop feel layered, so we mixed octagonal chargers with cabbage plates for a vintage feel. The brass flatware and glassware with a gilded edge also nod to an old-world aesthetic.

There’s such a level of polished sophistication in this design, as well as comfort. Details are what give a design authenticity and character. The wraparound banquette in concert with the patterned pillows does just that while still being functional for dining. We always look to create authentic spaces that feel lived-in. The idea was to create an environment and backdrop for a fabulous dinner party.

WHO: Chloe Masco, the Asbury Park photographer behind studio Claudia Chloe, whose bright and beachy shots are inspired by her upbringing on the Jersey Shore. WHAT: If you need a summery pick-me-up, this is the feed for you. Expect a kaleidoscope of hues, as Masco likes to keep things airy and light, mostly from playful beach scenes shot high in the sky. WHY: Because we dare you to look at this feed and not smile. Even Masco says she feels successful when one of her photographs makes someone happy. IN HER WORDS: “I have a background in fine art, so when I take photos my eyes are naturally drawn to color and negative space over subject matter. When it comes to my aerial photos especially, I love the interaction of color between humans and the landscape.”

CHECK IN Famed hoteliers Tim and Kit Kemp are at it again. Their second Firmdale Hotels property in New York City, The Whitby hotel takes over a space in Midtown, just two blocks from Central Park. The 16-story structure was designed by Stonehill & Taylor and evokes an industrial tone with warehouse-style windows and a limestone façade. Inside are the signature decor elements Firmdale is known for: cheery pops of color, layered prints and textures and an enviable selection of art. There’s also a library collection, a movie theater that holds 130 leather seats and a lounge with a 30-foot-long pewter bar that provides a proper afternoon tea service. As with the company’s 11 other hotels, each of The Whitby’s 86 guest rooms features its own color scheme. But the best room in the house has to be the two-bedroom Whitby Suite, an 1,845-square-foot penthouse loft with stunning Manhattan views via two terraces. firmdalehotels.com

BLUEPRINT 111 WEST 57TH STREET

There’s often talk of a building changing the Manhattan cityscape but, as New Yorkers know, it rarely pans out in the dramatic fashion intended. 111 West 57th Street just may be the one to break the cycle. The landmarked Steinway Hall, erected in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore—the firm that designed Grand Central Terminal—will now boast a strikingly tall residential tower courtesy of Shop Architects. Rising high above Central Park, the 82-story building will stand 1,428 feet upon its completion in 2018. Twelve of the structure’s 58 units will be housed in the original building; all will be furnished by design firm Studio Sofield. The new addition will feature a glass curtain wall on its north side for unobstructed views of Central Park, while Steinway Hall’s neoclassical structure will be embellished at its base with music-themed sculptures by Leo Lentelli to pay respects to the scores of artistic greats who have played inside its storied walls. 111w57.com 136 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Also, Brazilian brand Ornare (150 E. 58 th St.) made its New York debut in the A&D Building, filling a fourth-floor 3,267-square-foot space with high-end kitchen, bath and closet designs. And down in SoHo, Calligaris (55 Thompson St.) opened a storefront in March for its contemporary home furnishings and accessories in good company.

DATE BOOK LINDSEY ADELMAN

9 a.m. Start your day at The Smile, a cozy spot in the lower level of an 1830s townhouse on Bond Street. The menu has a lot of great options, but I tend to get the egg sandwich: ham, gruyere and caramelized onion on an English muffin.

1 p.m. It’s time for lunch, and at the top of my list is chefs Jody Williams and Rita Sodi’s Via Carota in the West Village. Everything on the menu is delicious, but you must try the olive all’ascolana: fried green olives with pork sausage.

10 a.m. Head to Lower Manhattan to check out a few shops I find personal and inviting. First is Ted Muehling; anyone who appreciates form over function in jewelry should give this organic space on White Street a look. Next, Kirna Zabête’s poppy boutique on Broome Street is a must for avant-garde fashion junkies (think: Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, Céline). And around the corner, The Line has a carefully curated collection by designers like Loewe and Pierre Hardy.

2 p.m. Stop by one of the best shopping districts in New York City: the corner of Howard and Crosby streets. Walk off lunch by popping into Maiyet, Rick Owens, de Vera, Opening Ceremony, Michele Varian and Oliver Gustav. And anyone seeking exquisitely handcrafted furniture should visit BDDW, owned by one of my favorite designers, Tyler Hays. In addition to his own works, the store also carries Maria Moyer ceramics and a few of my lighting pieces.

5 p.m. There are a lot of talented artists and craftsmen whose studios are worthy of a visit. Begin at Bec Brittain’s Chelsea showroom to see where each of her pieces is hand-assembled. Then, swing by Rachel and Nick Cope’s Calico Wallpaper loft, a lightfilled and mood-lifting space in Brooklyn. 7 p.m. End the day with dinner at Houseman, an American eatery with excellent comfort food in a quiet West SoHo block. The atmosphere is pretty and friendly—a true neighborhood spot.

DATE BOOK PHOTOS: LIGHTING FIXTURES AND ROOM VIGNETTE, LAUREN COLEMAN; PORTRAIT, HANS NEUMANN.

Playful geometric forms, shape-shifting light and hand-formed materials—these are the hallmarks of the easily identifiable works by lighting artist Lindsey Adelman. The born-and-raised New Yorker studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, then entered the lighting industry in 1996 and introduced Lindsey Adelman Studio 10 years later. Now, her Bubble chandeliers—her first release—have become something of an icon. Adelman’s work has been showcased at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (amongst a slew of other greats), and there’s a who’s-who list of design heavy-hitters she counts as fans. But even with a lifetime’s worth of success and a recently launched second studio in Los Angeles, Adelman says it’s the spaces and objects that “feel personal” that drive her. We caught up with the design darling to get her need-to-stop locales in and around her native New York City. lindseyadelman.com

Synchronicity by Hubbardton Forge

SYNCHRONICITY BY HUBBARDTON FORGE In the world of design, lighting often plays a supporting role. In the hands of luxury lighting manufacturer Hubbardton Forge, it steals the show. The company’s new line, Synchronicity, puts the spotlight on their sculptural, hand-forged metal with the added elegance of Swarovski crystals. “We were looking for something with a bolder voice,” design director David Kitts says. “To design a fixture with real star power, a la Audrey Hepburn.” With carefully crafted precision and purposeful placement, Hubbardton Forge’s in-house designers cradle the crystals within each fixture, like a fine jewel. In some cases, the crystals take center stage, in others, they’re treated as an accent. “We’re striving for a 50-50 role with crystal and forged elements in a very organic way,” Kitts continues. With myriad residential and commercial applications, Synchronicity captures the heritage of Hubbardton Forge with lighting that plays the lead role in any design.

SYNCHRONICITY + SWAROVSKI A SERENDIPITOUS AFFAIR How did the world’s foremost crystal maker join forces with foremost luxury lighting designer Hubbardton Forge? It was serendipity for Synchronicity. Swarovski approached Hubbardton Forge toward the end of 2015 as they were developing a new way to cut crystal. At the same time, Hubbardton Forge was looking to craft the next statement piece for the home. “Swarovski was the ideal partnership,” Kitts tells. TOP. A unity of craft and glamour, the Courbé Duet features the world premiere of the new Wave Cut crystal from Swarovski embraced by flowing steel tendrils. BOTTOM. Handcrafted steel vines entwine glistening drops of oval pear-shaped Swarovski crystals on the Gaia pendant.

ZEPHYR Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Zephyr looks back at the defining moments in the company’s history and its game-changing kitchen hoods. In 1997, it was the first manufacturer to bring power ventilation to the modern kitchen, with three undercabinet hoods. By 2001, Zephyr became known for chimney-style, stainless-steel hoods, which remain prominent. Aligned with a design-centric approach, the company partnered with the world’s most influential designers, including Fu-Tung Cheng and Robert Brunner, who balance aesthetics and technology with a masterful eye. Today, Zephyr sets industry standards in technology, through its DCBL Suppression System®, which renders the hood virtually silent and supremely energy-efficient, and its Bloom™ HD and BriteStrip™ LED products. “We continue to elevate the kitchen through design, discovery and care,” president Luke Siow says. In the hands of Zephyr, the onceoverlooked hood has become a major player in the appliance category, inspiring a new generation of kitchen design.

TURNING HEADS AGAIN ... BLACK STAINLESS STEEL Zephyr adds to its list of firsts with the launch of Black Stainless Steel Hoods, made with titanium coating, to the luxury appliance market. Aside from its striking aesthetic value, the new black stainless steel promises uniformity, durability and strength with military-grade protection, and anti-smudge and fingerprint-resistant properties. In addition, each hood can be outfitted with the company’s technological innovations, including BriteStrip™ LED lighting and ICON Touch® controls. TOP. Shown is the Ravenna wall hood in black stainless steel, with a smoke-gray glass canopy. BOTTOM. Zephyr’s 7,000-square-foot San Francisco showroom is located in the heart of the Design District.

WEATHEREND ESTATE FURNITURE No other company embodies quality and durability like Weatherend, the Maine outdoor furniture builder steeped in century-old traditions. Think back to 1905, when landscape architect Hans Heistad worked the coastal properties of several summer estates in Maine. One estate, named Weatherend, was his pride and joy. It is here that he crafted landscapes complemented with outdoor pieces that became the inspiration for Weatherend’s furniture designs. The influence of Heistad, along with boatbuilding skills taught by his father, enabled owner Gil Harper to introduce yacht construction integrity to outdoor furniture. These skills, combined with marine materials, have resulted in Weatherend’s signature curves and finishes that add grace and endurance to any residential or commercial space. “Our yacht-building expertise allows us to create innovative designs that can be customized to any outdoor setting,” Harper says.

WEATHEREND’S COLLECTIONS ESTATE: With 80 to 100 pieces, Weatherend’s original Estate collection is inspired by designs Heistad created while working on the Weatherend and Pulitzer estates from 1905 to 1935. YACHTING: Using curves for comfort, the Yachting collection has a distinctive design with each piece inspired by life on the water. ANGELA ADAMS: When Harper saw well-known textile and furniture designer Angela Adams’ work, he recognized an opportunity to introduce it to the outdoor market. EXPRESSIONS: The unique Expressions collection is a completely custom line that gives clients the opportunity to specify design, shape, color and finish for any “expression” they want. WINDSOR: The company’s newest casual and dining chairs pay homage to the first outdoor furniture brought to the colonies, but with a contemporary spin. *All Weatherend furniture is available at JANUS et Cie showrooms across the country.

TOP. The Yachting Casual Chair, seen here in a white yacht finish, can be custom specified to complement any space. MIDDLE. The Weatherondack Chair and Ottoman is an award-winning design that brings a fresh look to the Adirondack chair. BOTTOM. Part of a larger set, the Campobello Casual Chair suits any outdoor setting.

LACANTINA DOORS Recognized for the most aesthetically striking and environmentally sound door and window systems in the world, LaCantina Doors bold the rest of this sentence Folding, sliding or swinging, their innovative systems open up spaces and engage the outside, transforming how homeowners interact with their living space. “ ‘LaCantina Life’ is all about the benefits of living in large open spaces surrounded by natural light and open air,” vice president and general manager Lee Maughan says. Furthering this philosophy, LaCantina’s minimal, clean designs and consistent-width stile and rail profiles create balance and symmetry. Dedicated to innovation, LaCantina utilizes the same narrow signature door panel across its product line for a complete and perfectly matching door package. This “perfect match” allows for the same daylight opening and consistent sight lines across all of LaCantina’s systems.

BREAKTHROUGH DOOR + WINDOW DESIGN Pivot: Launching summer 2017, LaCantina’s new Pivot system makes a statement for any large entry or patio door opening, featuring large panels with transom and sidelite options in a full range of materials. Folding: The most versatile, Contemporary Clad features a low-maintenance aluminum exterior with multiple profile options and the warmth of a wood interior.  Sliding: LaCantina’s new class of multi-slide doors combines the optimal aesthetics and performance of a high-end lift-slide with the functionality and value of a multi-slide.  Swing: The new swing doors create more space than typical single or French doors, and are made using architectural-grade stainless-steel hinges and robust door panels.  Screen: LaCantina’s screening systems were the first designed specifically for large openings. Whether for insect protection, transparency, privacy or energy efficiency, its pleated and non-pleated options provide the solution.  TOP. Photograph Courtesy of BUILD LLC

Debbie Cahill Turner Design Seattle, WA “With so many of my favorite vendors exhibiting at the show, I always walk away with incredible finds for my clients. Most recently, I found vintage vinyl floor cloths in great color combinations, which I love to use in casual dining spaces, at Spicher and Company. Blush and pink tones, often paired with gold metals and ginkgo motifs in lighting, accessories and furniture, were everywhere. Organic forms inspired by nature were quite popular too. My favorite was Currey & Company’s Forest chandelier with gilded branches dripping in quartz crystal. Since I’m based on the West Coast, I find Las Vegas Market to be one of the most comprehensive and inspiring shows to attend. Download the market app to navigate the show with ease, and make it a point to stop by showrooms with which you’re unfamiliar. You never know what cool, new lines you’ll find.”

Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design Los Angeles, CA “We’ve always found incredible, undiscovered furniture and lighting lines, as well as spectacular tabletop accessory companies, at Las Vegas Market. In addition to shopping for furnishings, we love finding unique styling details, such as stunning drapery hardware, exquisite bed linens, beautiful stemware and more. We’ve also witnessed many trends evolve at the show, from the wave of linen fabric upholstery and French napkin trends, to bold ethnic rug collections and hospitality quality furnishings. We’re constantly surprised by our new finds each season. Don’t miss a thing, map out the World Market Center and allow for extra time to explore. You’re guaranteed to always find something. Truly, Las Vegas Market is a smart design resource with so much to offer for a whole design project.”

ADG San Francisco, CA “The sheer volume of resources available to designers at Las Vegas Market is mind-boggling. Each season there are more and more innovations and new products that we have never seen before, which is always exciting. Since it’s hosted in Las Vegas, there’s a level of excitement and energy like no other show. My most recent favorite product finds are the stylish and edgy CASEGOODS collection at SHO MODERN and the breadth of luxury home accessories at Noir. I’m always inspired by elegant materials and meticulous craftsmanship, and love seeing the trend of custom requests and collaborations between designers and vendors continue—no matter what the product is. To maximize your time at the show, make sure you have a list of “not to be missed” vendors and remember to bring a ton of business cards. As much as the show is about sourcing, it’s also about networking.”

Las Vegas Market is open to the trade only, July 30 – August 3, 2017. Don’t miss the Las Vegas Market and Luxe Interiors + Design’s “Ahead of the Curve” trend presentation on August 1st! Register online at lasvegasmarket.com

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT ACOCHRAN.COM

At first sight: The Radiant lamps are elegant and timeless, perfectly reflecting Janice Feldman’s personal vision. I love how the carved surfaces contrast with the simplicity of the orbs, resulting in this beautifully crafted texture juxtaposed with minimal design. On the job: My work has always been grounded in modernism and minimalist art; I am interested in the perception of nature and natural phenomena in relation to more structured forms. In the daylight… These lamps look like elegant stone sculptures, solid and weighty. At night, they are transformed into lanterns, with an airiness that belies the materiality of the stone—I’m reminded of the paper lanterns you see in the Japanese tōrō nagashi ceremony. At home: The subtle genius of these lamps is their versatility. They could stand on a table beautifully but could also effectively illuminate the small corners of a garden.

FIRST MATES THE PIECES: Radiant Double Knitting Ball and Radiant Knitting Ball THE DESIGNER: Janus et Cie FIND IT: janusetcie.com THE INSPIRATION: Taking their cue from the texture of yarn, the Radiant lamps are actually constructed of natural, undyed sandstone and beam from within, capable of casting an enchanting glow without being defined by the space in which they reside. Their versatility encourages a well-lived—and stylish—life among the indoors and outdoors alike, a Janus et Cie trademark.

KNOTS LANDING THE PIECES: Criss Cross Outdoor Pillows in Charcoal (far left) and True Blue, and Mr. Rowe Outdoor Pillow in Green/Blue THE DESIGNER: Alex Mason FIND IT: ferrickmason.com THE INSPIRATION: Perennially cool and distinctly fresh are just a few thoughts that come to mind when dreaming about a Ferrick Mason textile, and the same is certainly true with the hip and artful brand’s inaugural outdoor collection. Thoughtfully picked from their existing indoor line, Criss Cross—a simple doodle reinvented into a perfect coordinate—and Mr. Rowe—a masculine design with a twist that was inspired by a dear friend—are the festive outdoor accents you didn’t know you needed.

At first sight: Alex Mason’s designs are as thoughtful and elegant as they are fresh and playful. Compared to previous collections, however, these patterns are a little more graphic and handsome, inspired by strong geometry over a more whimsical, natural form. As a landscape designer… These accent pillows appeal to me not only for their ability to complement a wide variety of garden styles—traditional, Zen or modern—but they’d also pair well with other patterns, textures and colors. Though a bit more contemporary and universal in style… Both of these patterns bring the art of Japanese shibori to mind, a style and mood that I’m constantly mindful about integrating into outdoor spaces. I’m wholly attracted to… Gardens that combine structured, architectural form with native, seasonal and wild plantings: I’m moved by landscapes that elevate one’s understanding of the natural process.

SECOND WIND THE PIECE: Maia Relax Armchair THE DESIGNER: Patricia Urquiola FIND IT: kettal.com THE INSPIRATION: Known for its innovative yet stylish handcrafted designs, Barcelona-based Kettal partners only with the best—Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola included. Urquiola’s Relax armchair, part of her Maia collection for the international brand, is infused with modernity and lightness and breaks new ground on archtypical outdoor furnishings through the use of geometric patterns, high-tech braided fibers and a wide aluminum frame. The result is just as stellar as the collaboration itself: an exploration and reimagining of outdoor furniture to a distinctly chicer level.

MATT WITTMAN & JODY ESTES

ARCHITECT AND LANDSCAPE DESIGNER WITTMAN-ESTES.COM

At first sight… Our initial impression of the Maia Relax armchair is one of weightlessness. The chair’s lightness lends a breezy informality that works to balance its sculptural and prismatic form. With a minimal and functional spirit… The chair nevertheless appears comfortable—and almost playful. Like Kettal… We err toward clean, crisp designs that complement modern architecture, so we appreciate how Patricia Urquiola and the brand are mindful of tradition—in both form and material—but smart in cleverly creating fresh pieces that adhere to today’s needs and experiences. On the job: We also enjoy designing spaces that are functional and not overly complicated; we anticipate the movement of the people in it and, rather than attempting to control it, we work with that natural movement and flow. At home: We see this piece living at a tropical resort or in a modern patio setting—not overly structured but intentional, with an abundance of comfort and coolness.

TIGHT ROPE THE PIECE: Custom Plain Weave Shore Rug THE DESIGNER: Louie Rigano and Gil Muller FIND IT: shorerugs.com THE INSPIRATION: London design duo Louie Rigano and Gil Muller consider it their mission to create inspired designs that are as beautiful as they are functional. Their brainchild, Shore Rugs, breaks free from the traditional rug vernacular by using custom-engineered silicone cords to fashion products with a high domestic appeal, indoors and out. Combine that allure with their penchant for brilliant color palettes, like this custom ombre design, and prepare to experience, visually and tangibly, a rug like no other.

RYAN KETTELKAMP LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT KETTELKAMP2.COM

At first sight: I was drawn to the chunky, bold weave of this custom rug. It introduces a profoundly noticeable texture into the piece; you immediately sense substance and durability but the interplay of color introduces an artful playfulness. On the job: I particularly like the idea of contrasts in garden designs—wild and exuberant plantings within a formal layout and areas of shade contrasted with open bright sunny spots in a garden—and routinely stress the importance of good lines, ones that pull you into an outdoor environment and beg you to come and explore. It’s important that a well-conceived garden speak to you in this way. Old and new: Shore Rugs’ use of technologically advanced materials in a way that harks back to the long tradition of handwork is admirable. The actual material also communicates an ease of maintenance, which is key for the outdoors. Landscape architecture… Weaves all my interests—science, art, horticulture, craft, design, technology, history and the outdoors—into a cohesive whole, coincidentally not unlike one of these rugs.

At first sight: It’s immediately clear how well-crafted these tables are, and beyond that, they read as extremely chic. Dedon’s lines are always visionary and unique, and the same is true of Lorenza Bozzoli’s work. It’s contemporary and very personal; she doesn’t let functionality sacrifice style. Speaking of functionality… This design is just the right height and you can play with configurations. I also love that the tops are natural trays and have drainage slots—versatile and perfect for all things poolside. Mother Nature and the magic of the outdoors… Drew me to landscape design. The natural world has constant change and life cycles. This made sense to me as a child. Of course, once I was deeply engaged, I wanted to play with all the plants and forms and remake reality. Why not a mountain or a lake where there was none? Visually and viscerally… The tables have a lovely lightness to them, and the fact they have three legs reminds me of Noguchi. The art of craft and the love for craft are what this design is all about.

SEA LEVEL THE PIECE: Brixx Side Table Triangular THE DESIGNER: Lorenza Bozzoli FIND IT: dedon.us THE INSPIRATION: As with all things Dedon and all things Lorenza Bozzoli, the Brixx side table, with its sleek powdercoated aluminum top and natural teak legs, elevates the everyday. The Milanese fashion and furniture expert’s marriage with Dedon, and their fine Italian craftsmanship, is nothing short of a refined and understated match made in heaven—resulting in the Brixx table and its collection’s stunning counterparts.

DROP ANCHOR THE PIECE: Windsor Casual Chair THE DESIGNER: Weatherend Estate Furniture FIND IT: weatherend.com THE INSPIRATION: Over a century ago, landscape architect Hans Heistad began designing outdoor landscapes with complementing furniture for seaside properties along the coast of Maine. Among these dreamy coastal estates was Weatherend, and over a hundred years later, Weatherend Estate Furniture continues to produce stately and sophisticated pieces. Using techniques typically found in yacht building, the heritage brand reimagined the Windsor—a contemporary interpretation of the first outdoor chair introduced to America—which celebrates the seating staple’s rich history and ageless design.

EDMUND HOLLANDER

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT HOLLANDERDESIGN.COM

At first sight: I admire the subtle maritime aesthetic that Weatherend often applies to their works. There is something that feels particularly “right” about this design and its exceptional craftsmanship. As a landscape architect… I am especially drawn to the style and flexibility of a design. If you’re going to bring something into your home, indoors or out, these two qualities are paramount. On the job: I greatly enjoy collaborating with designers and architects to create beautiful and environmentally appropriate spaces, ones that harmoniously marry the site and the client, and I feel like this chair would be an easy fit for so many atmospheres. At home: The joinery and overall mood of this piece make the Windsor Casual chair the perfect solution for any space craving an elegant yet rugged piece of furniture. To me, it would seem most at home on a deck overlooking the ocean or atop a posh sailboat or yacht.

WHEN MOTHER NATURE IS THE GUEST OF HONOR IN YOUR HOME’S HARDEST-WORKING SPACES, BOUNDARIES BETWEEN INDOORS AND OUT MELT AWAY. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

That sunshine and fresh air are a salve for many of life’s ailments is hardly a secret. After all, spending time outdoors is linked to both increased vitamin D production and feelings of happiness. It’s no wonder, then, that designers are bringing nature into the home’s busiest rooms. The latest retractable glass walls and service-style windows blur the line between interior and exterior, providing an often-needed calming connection to the outside world. Whether you’re blessed with a temperate climate yearround, as in Sydney, where this kitchen is located, or you’re forced to make the most of a limited run of good weather, we hope you’ll find inspiration in the following pages. 196 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smart Design Studio created this open-air kitchen as part of a modern addition to a Federal-style house. Walls of windows and retractable glass doors bring in an abundance of light, which a mirrored backsplash further reflects. As a result, the narrow space feels much larger than it is.

SMART DESIGN STUDIO Blame it on the mild weather Down Under, but one thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for certain when it comes to Australian design: No one does indoor-outdoor spaces quite like the Aussies. Here, interior designer Victoria Judge of Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smart Design Studio walks us through this airy minimalist kitchen. smartdesignstudio.com Share your vision. Our climate is conducive to an outdoor lifestyle, and this house facilitates exactly that. The streamlined design features integrated appliances where possible, and the dining table and island are combined to maximize open space. Black-stained timber joinery extends beyond the kitchen to an outdoor eating area.

How much was light a factor in designing this kitchen? The house is on a very narrow plot and surrounded by tall buildings to the south, which forms a kind of cavern, so large windows were important for bringing light into the room. By providing a double-height space in the rear we were able to flood the room in bright light all day long.

PHOTO: SHARRIN REES.

What are some tricks for a seamless indoor-outdoor space? Folding doors are great, allowing rooms to fully open to the outdoors. Opting for a continuous floor finish, such as the travertine used here, between indoors and out helps. By reducing the amount of finishes, you can eliminate visual clutter and the division of spaces.

Elegant fine linens and casual alfresco dining generally don’t mix. Enter oilcloth linen: The durable, waterproof material stands up to spills and splashes and makes a pretty placemat to boot, as in the Parentesi (shown here in Sage) from La Gallina Matta. Its unique shape and delicate embroidery prove that practicality and style can go hand in hand. lagallinamatta.it

To transform a Tuscan-style villa into a modern country home, architect Ken Linsteadt relied on an earthy, natural palette and opened up every room to the surrounding Sonoma, California, landscape. Moving the kitchen to the opposite end of the house so it could face the pool terrace created more of a connection to the outside. “The oversize steel-and-glass windows tilt up, providing an expansive view and easy access to the pool, as well as shade over the bar on a sunny day,” he says. kenlinsteadt.com

COOL & CONNECTED For this modern kitchen, designer Julia Treuel opted for a crisp, monochromatic look that wouldn’t compete with the lush greenery in the backyard. She then installed bifold windows and a servery for a seamless connection to the garden. “Not only is it lovely to have fresh air flowing through this zone, but the house feels larger for it,” says Treuel. abbeycollective.com.au

Ready-made for thoughtful reveries, this screened-in porch, designed by Brendan Kwinter-Schwartz, provides a quiet moment—tucked into a weekend getaway log cabin in Woodstock. 1 / Sky Fall: Breathe light into a dark ceiling with some discreet skylights, placed thoughtfully here at the entrance’s apex between the beams to preserve the roof’s architectural bones. 2 / On a Limb: Temper cabin fever with some unapologetically avant-garde furnishings. With its origami-like pedestal, the Arc table by Lord Norman Foster for Molteni&C feels both stark and futuristic while subtly echoing organic shapes. 3 / Bolt of Blue: Contrast the surrounding greenery with a shock of saturated color to define the space. The porch pops against the woodsy background thanks to the rich blue tone in this indoor-outdoor rug made by Liora Manne. 4 / Light Hearted: Keep to unfussy fixtures that let natural light take prime place in sun-centric rooms. This simple indoor-outdoor pendant by CL Sterling & Son, for instance, feels in harmony with the dark cabin roof.

In the spring, the East End is full of budding blooms, changing aerial palettes and residential preparations. From architects to interior designers, local professionals spend the off-season in creation and anticipation. Read on, and discover the work of these industry luminaries, from Quogue to Sag Harbor.

For James Merrell Architects, house design is a hero’s journey. “Clients rarely come through the process unchanged,” principal James Merrell says. Each project is a guided intellectual and emotional quest, in which the architectural team and the clients fuse their collective values and interests. The Hamptons, which Merrell deems “a laboratory for architectural experimentation,” offers the firm a superlative landscape and client base with which to work. “Residential architecture offers the best opportunity to experience directly the connection between our imaginations and our ideals,” Merrell says. “To be able to see and inhabit the built manifestation—the realized dream—is truly magical, for us as designers and even more so for our clients.”

Off-season allure. Asked to share his favorite aspect of the off-season Hamptons, Merrell says, “Winter sailing. I’m part of a group that sails small boats 10 months a year. I often step out of my dry suit fully dressed for client meetings.” Spring in three words: “Break. New. Ground.” Summer anticipations: “Traffic, crowds and buzzing energy.”

John David Rose’s description of the Hamptons in the spring speaks to the revitalization for which the season is cherished. “It is awakened, enthusiastic and renewed,” the architect says. Though his masterpieces are scattered throughout this iconic seaside destination, Rose operates his namesake firm, John David Rose Architect, from Southampton. Known the world over for its magnificent summer season—and the larger-than-life residents who arrive with it—the Hamptons has, according to Rose, become more than its reputation as a periodic hot spot. “The Hamptons no longer ‘rolls up its sidewalks’ after Labor Day,” he says. “It has become a vibrant, four-season destination with countless unique offerings within each time of year. This has enabled our business to provide full services on a year-round basis.”

A SPRING SATURDAY IN THE HAMPTONS “I would start by drinking a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise off the stern of my boat,” Rose says. “Then, I would play a round of golf or spend time with the horses at Rosemoor Equestrian. I would end the day by picking up fresh, local seafood and produce to prepare at home with friends and family.” 2

Dow’s store, Elizabeth Dow Home, boasts its own line of textiles, wallcoverings and upholstery; a wide representation of craftsmen and artists; brands like Schumacher and Kravet; and a full range of interior design services. Its breadth of offerings makes it a resource for homeowners, design professionals and enthusiasts alike. And as Dow tells it, there is no shortage of such individuals. “Overall, the Hamptons has a great mix of talent, local craftsmen and interesting stories—some already written, others untold,” she says. “The best part about it, for me, is being involved in the community during every season.”

“In the spring, the Hamptons begins to buzz like bees in the garden,” Dow says. “People are full of hope, gardens are blooming and lawns are being mowed for the first time since late November. Then, the summer arrives, which I enjoy, because I love the chaos!” In preparation for the season, Dow stocks fresh, summery pillows and throws, lots of small house gifts, candles, books and accessories. She adds, “I also plan a series of summer art events.”

Frederick Stelle, Michael Lomont and Viola Rouhani believe architecture’s purpose is to highlight its landscape. “What Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects designs is not meant to compete with nature, but to offer the tranquility and shelter from which to appreciate it,” the team says. “It’s a modest approach that speaks to the truth of our surroundings, building materials and quality of space.” Asked to describe the spring season in the firm’s Hamptons location, the architects speak to rejuvenation, saying, “The light starts to change and the palette morphs from gray and brown to an explosion of color. Each day is an event, as flowers and trees bloom. The area starts to become more populated with the promise of summer around the corner. You can feel it waking up.”

THE EVOLUTION OF THE HAMPTONS

“Although it has always been a getaway, the area is seeing more population growth and activity than ever before,” the SLR team says. “There are more restaurants, events and opportunities. Montauk, in particular, has undergone a big transformation in recent years. The stress this has caused, from environmental and infrastructure standpoints, has inspired a focus on sustainability and water quality.”

Over the last several years, designers have embraced nature in a big way, creating fully loaded outdoor family rooms, elaborate fire pits and wow-worthy pools. Even the once-humble pool house has undergone a dramatic change from utilitarian changing spot to a luxurious destination in itself, as witnessed in this elegant East Hampton, New York, property by Dan Scotti Design. For more inspirational spaces and products that celebrate the great outdoors, turn the page.

With its sleek silhouette and eye-catching color, the Hestan deluxe freestanding grill is, dare we say, sexy. But its fetching looks aren’t the only draw. Heavyduty burners deliver up to 25,000 BTUs, making it a powerful addition to any backyard barbecue. Amenities such as a whisper-quiet infrared rotisserie burner and motion-activated under-hood lighting are perfect for post-sundown cookouts, and it comes in 12 signature colors, ranging from classic stainless to the lively orange, Citra, shown here. hestanoutdoor.com

OPEN AIR This Malibu, California, retreat was designed to give its owners a sunny respite from harsh winters on the East Coast, where they are based. To take full advantage of the sweeping coastline views, Studio Bracket oriented the house toward the ocean, and opened it up to create a seamless transition from indoors to outside. “The covered exterior spaces become an extension of the living room and kitchen, increasing the footprint and bringing the casual Malibu lifestyle outdoors,” says designer Wayne Chevalier. studiobracket.com

While it’s probably tempting for landscape architects to cover the countryside in vibrant colors, sometimes a more restricted palette is needed. For this Dutch-inspired house in New Canaan, Connecticut, for example, Doyle Herman Design Associates opted for a more earthy, subdued scheme. “Oversize bluestone leads from the kitchen to the dining terrace, while linear gestures of ornamental grasses and hedges of boxwoods play off the contemporary style of this modern farmhouse,” says principal designer Kathryn Herman. dhda.com

IN THE ROUND It’s hard to top the Mad Men-era fabulousness of the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills: After all, Rat Packers Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin once called the midcentury neighborhood home. To honor that history, Los Angeles-based Elysian Landscapes brought a dose of retro glamour to the backyard of a 1959 glass-and-concrete house by creating this showstopper of a fire pit. “The generous banquette was once a low concrete block wall hidden behind a hedge of bamboo, so we increased the height of the wall and hid speakers in the plantings,” says designer Judy Kameon. “Now, it’s a perfect setting for enjoying cool evenings.” Bring on the s’mores… and martinis! elysianlandscapes.com

Talk about a platform for change: This mobile lounger rests on rails so it can be wheeled from the far end of the 35-foot pool right up to the fireplace of this Dallas house. Created by the landscape architects at Hocker Design Group, the genius contraption is the centerpiece of an exterior space that features a lounge area on one side and a grove of bamboo trees on the other. The daybed acts as a piece of site furniture that allows you to dip your toes in the water and enjoy the warmth of a fire for a truly transporting experience. hockerdesign.com

Inspired by the complex and elegant nests of the finch-like weaver bird, Danish designer Henrik Pedersen created these outdoor lanterns to hang and sway in the evening breeze much like the real thing. Solar-charged LED lights provide soft mood lighting for summer nights, while the powder-coated stainless-steel accents come in two neutral colors: fawn and steel, both shown. gloster.com

Thinking outside of the box takes on a new meaning when you actually punch a hole in that box, which is exactly what Australian designer Carole Whiting did to create this cozy nook. By opening up a wall in the living room to make a niche that’s both window and daybed, Whiting invited more light into the space and gave the eventual inhabitants the option of being simultaneously inside and out. “To contrast with the soft, neutral palette indoors, we made the bed black, which further unifies it with the exterior,” says Whiting. whitingarchitects.com

SWING TIME

Perhaps no other perch conveys a playful Bohemian vibe quite like a hanging swing chair. The original bamboo version of this porch staple was designed by Giovanni Travasa in 1958, but the style really caught on in the freewheeling ’60s and ’70s when natural materials were all the rage. Tidelli’s new Painho swing here, designed by Rosenbaum e o Fetiche, is made with nautical rope and high-grade aluminum for indoor or outdoor use and comes in an impressive array of summertime colors—52 to be exact. tidelli.com

LOOKING GLASS

Minimalist architecture demands clean lines, so it’s no wonder the latest technological advancements in glass walls allow for bigger expanses and slimmer frames and stiles. Cero, the newest floor-to-ceiling sliding wall system from NanaWall, boasts the thinnest profile yet, giving way to light-filled spaces that challenge the conventional notions of boundaries between indoors and out. nanawall.com

VIEW TO A THRILL What can compete with a typical Wine Country meal of farm-to-table food and excellent vino? A killer view, of course—like the one at this Healdsburg, California, family ranch designed by Ali Davin of San Francisco-based firm Jute. “To draw the eye outside, we intentionally kept the furnishings sparse so they wouldn’t distract from the scenery,” she says. “The wood ceiling, concrete walls, stone floors, metal chairs and linen curtains keep the look rustic and understated, while Rose Uniacke’s dining table made of pippy oak helps anchor the space and tie it to the natural landscape.” jutehome.com

The best entryways whisper “come here”: Inspiring curiosity, they beckon you to take another step forward until you cross their threshold. For this Bridgehampton, New York, estate, principal and designer Ian Hanbach of LaGuardia Design Landscape Architecture wanted to create that sense of anticipation. “It’s playing with the idea of having something hidden on the other side that you can’t wait to discover,” he says. In this case, the reward—a serene, secluded pool—is worth every single step. laguardiadesigngroup.com

BROOKLYN Known for its artistic and cultural diversity, Brooklyn has become a mecca for residential design. The borough brims with innovative and visionary professionals, from interior designers to purveyors of luxury bedding, decorative plumbing and hardware, high-end surfaces and handcrafted entryways. Describing Brooklyn is no simple endeavor, given its countless neighborhoods, each of which has its own signature aesthetic. Still, some things are true of the borough as a whole: It is always changing; alive with inspiration and ideas; inhabited by people who radiate passion; and altogether collaborative. Read on, and discover the state of Brooklynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential design community from the luminaries responsible for creating it.

“The borough’s culture and creative spirit are informed by the diversity of its locals—lifelong Brooklynites and new residents alike.” 1

A

t Accentuations By Design, furnishings stand the test of time. According to CEO Joel Brach, the goal is to ensure they both delight the client who purchases them and become beloved family heirlooms. Such a sense of tradition, timelessness and preservation can be rare to find today, but it’s also characteristic of a brand cultivated in Brooklyn. “The great thing about working in design is connecting with clients, getting to know their tastes and helping them beautify their homes,” Brach says. “The cherry on top is when we have the opportunity to welcome the next generation, as our clients’ children begin to build their homes in the area.” Located in Borough Park, ABD offers furnishings in traditional, transitional, contemporary and modern styles. And, according to Brach, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. “We offer more than oneoff furniture pieces,” he says. “We provide our clientele with the entire design experience. We work with each client to create a cohesive look that includes lighting, draperies, painting and more.” Known to introduce and define trends, Brooklyn exudes a fresh, innovative vibe even as it nods to tradition. Asked to describe the borough in three words, Brach says, “the ‘it’ place,” and the designation seems spot on. “As people have become hip to the hip nature of Brooklyn, we’ve seen an increase in interest at ABD,” he says. “Brooklyn’s influence will continue to develop as the community grows.” 2

THE BROOKLYN NATIVE According to Brach, ABD clients are the “crème de la crème of society.” Given Brooklyn’s strong, pioneering and diverse design scene, and proximity to the mecca of high-end culture that is Manhattan, Brach’s insight rings true. “They take pride in their sophisticated tastes and enjoy working with our talented team to design rooms that reflect those tastes,” he elaborates. On a related note, Brach advises first-time visitors to get in touch with their inner Brooklynite, saying, “I recommend incorporating some unstructured time into your schedule to experience the borough like a native.”

Downright

A LOOK AT THE BOROUGH WITH LEA ISRAEL

4603 1st Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 718.788.6363, ext. 214 | downrightltd.com

Local design events? Industry City is something new and local. It has monthly events ranging from design to dining. Little-known fact? The history of Brooklyn spans

“Diverse, busy and developing, Brooklyn showcases an incredible mixture of innovation and history.”

more than 350 years. Advice for a first-time visitor? Go to Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and bike in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

T

o hear Lea Israel explain the history of Downright is to understand the very definition of a homegrown Brooklyn business. “Our family in Europe had a smallscale down and feather operation on their farm,” she says. “Geese were raised for food, and the down and feathers operation evolved from the geese farm. Like many immigrants, our parents made Brooklyn their home. We drew on the family’s expertise and started a small pillow-filling operation in our basement.” Today, Downright is entering its 41st year in business, and quality continues to guide its philosophy. A mecca for creative expression and opportunity, Brooklyn has long been hailed by locals and visitors alike for the resources it offers design enthusiasts and professionals. “Every aspect of design, from the drawing board to the finished project, can be sourced and finished right here in Brooklyn,” Israel says. “The design community has access to the style and production experience of the long-standing businesses, and the newer talents of the startups.” In regard to the culture at large, Israel notes a shift from Brooklyn’s classic establishments to an offering geared toward a new generation. “It is evolving from the candy stores, delicatessens and mom-andpop enterprises to establishments that cater to the young millennial, who is making his or her first home here,” she says.

Sourcing Ethically Along with innovation, creativity and a boldness of spirit, Brooklyn is known for local businesses that uphold strength of reputation through good practices. Downright is no exception. In an effort to respect the animals from which its product comes, the company has announced its No Fowl Play initiative. “From farm to factory, each step of the supply chain is certified by the Responsible Down Standard,” Israel says. The RDS is an independent, global standard that verifies the ethical treatment of the ducks and geese from which certified down and feathers are sourced. “Customers can sleep well knowing that what keeps them warm at night comes from only the finest and most responsibly sourced down available,” Israel says. 1. Filled with Downright’s RDS-certified, Hungarian white goose down, the Bernina comforter and pillow are pure sensations of luxury. 2. No other down comes close to eiderdown, the finest, warmest, most inimitable and exquisite down in the world. 3. Downright’s Premium blanket is covered with a soft 330-thread-count, 100-percent cotton sateen.

A Sunday in Brooklyn

“My ideal Sunday would begin with brunch at a quaint café and browsing boutique shops,” Silver says. “Then, I would relax at a waterside park before ending the day with a classy dinner.”

“Brooklyn has so many hidden gems. Every visit will bring something new.”

F

or nearly 30 years, Focal Point has been serving the residents of Brooklyn and beyond from its Midwood location. A local brand to its very core, the company has steadily grown since 1987, today encompassing everything from decorative plumbing to hardware and accessories for the kitchen and bath. As principal Neil Silver tells it, Focal Point is all about the experience. “We differentiate ourselves by carrying more exclusive products and offering extra services as part of our regular scope,” he says. “We are situated among many other businesses within the home improvement industry, and we feel the local market matches our philosophy perfectly.” With a clientele as loyal, educated and diverse as you might expect Brooklynites to be, Focal Point strives to implement the latest design trends and innovations. “We serve some of the leaders in various industries, so they are very savvy,” Silver says. “Our clients push us to stay one step ahead.” And that they do. With brands like Franke, Dornbracht, Fantini, Baldwin and THG, Focal Point’s showroom boasts a selection to suit every style and functional need. Speaking of his particular role in the company, Silver expresses the rewarding nature of his daily work. “I enjoy being challenged every day to create or design something new,” he says. “I also like hearing from satisfied customers once a project is complete.”

NEW HORIZONS From the people and culture to the physical landscape, Brooklyn speaks to transformation and the variety it brings. “This area has so many types of people and an equal amount of diversified neighborhoods,” Silver says. “The skyline, both downtown and on the eastern waterfront, has changed quite a bit. I believe it will continue to do so over the next 10 years, with larger developments and possibly more entertainment centers and hotels being built.” 2

With a renowned design community and reputation for handcraftsmanship, the borough attracts an array of individuals, from the homeowner of a classic brownstone to an interior designer updating an edgy, modern interior. For Klein and his team, this variety necessitates knowledge of nearly every aesthetic and an attitude of passionate flexibility. “We have customers from all over Long Island, Staten Island and parts of New Jersey,” Klein explains. “The opportunity to create custom designs is what brings them here. At Grand Doors, a customer can give us any style they like, and we can create their dream door. Each Grand Door creation is a masterpiece, crafted with pride and superlative master workmanship.”

This diversity, for which the borough has long been cherished, has played a role in some of the world’s most groundbreaking—and breathtaking—creative work. Work such as that of Grand Doors. Focused on custom design and production, the company’s portfolio could certainly be called diverse. “Your choice of product makes a bold statement, conveying your sense of style and personality,” Klein says. “We work with a variety of customers. For each one, we create a door that is exactly what they desire, whether it is in a contemporary or old-world style, formed with fiberglass, wood or iron.”

Brooklyn is about seeking out the gems that are dotted around the borough, such as flea markets, niche design stores, furniture makers, small manufacturers and art galleries.” Seabaugh goes on to note that the simple act of walking around is influential when you’re in Brooklyn, as the architecture changes each time you turn a corner. The amalgam of styles within this unique slice of New York is the inspiration of local luminaries like Seabaugh, who identifies customization and the mixture of old and new as themes within her portfolio. “I love so many aspects of what I do: getting to know my clients so well I can anticipate their needs and desires; collaborating with artisans to craft a perfect custom piece; and mixing my clients’ beloved family heirlooms with contemporary items to create a personalized space,” Seabaugh says. “Brooklyn has a mixture of cultures and a strong community focus, and I want to absorb that vitality.”

A

young Manhattan couple faced a conundrum when they decamped to the Hudson River Valley after tiring of their crowded weekend Hamptons commute: How could they infuse their chic downtown style into a traditional waterfront cottage and guesthouse where the views are more dramatic than the interiors? Their designer, Sasha Bikoff, knew what she had to do. “She’s really young, fashion-forward, edgy,” Bikoff says of the wife, an accomplished artist whose abstract paintings now fill the house. “Creative people like to have their own art and style shine through. I saw this home as a backdrop for her personality.” As she began transforming each room and addressing the home’s dark finishes, heavy stone fireplaces and exaggerated moldings, Bikoff remained sensitive to the natural surroundings. “My number one thing in design is

that the interiors of the space need to coincide with where the home is,” she says. “This house is on the Hudson River, which you see from every room. It’s serene and tranquil.” Her challenge was layering those references into a design that highlights the wife’s couture-like preferences for metallics, mirrored surfaces, leather and fur. The most prominent stage for Bikoff’s efforts is the soaring living room, which looks out to the river through two stories of glass. The designer’s first purchase here was a rug that depicts a stylized streambed in tones of black, gray and white—a fitting anchor for molten-lava-rock coffee tables, DDC’s nubby modern On the Rocks sectional (so named for its sleek take on boulders) and a brass-and-glass chandelier that is a modern interpretation of branches. The ensemble translates nature into the owners’ language of shiny surfaces and decadent textiles, Bikoff explains. “I took everything from the outside and reimagined it for my glamorous clients,” she says.

This weekend home on the Hudson River betrays little of its glam interiors, although designer Sasha Bikoff evoked its wood and stone façade, as well as the surrounding trees and water, in the edgy decor.

A painting by the wife, an accomplished artist, adds color to the great room. The sectional is DDC, the coffee tables are The Phillips Collection and the armchairs are Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. A custom silver-fox throw adorns the vintage Vladimir Kagan chaise, and the chandelier is by Lindsey Adelman.

In similar fashion, Bikoff created a soothing but shimmery background with pearly gray paint on most of the walls as well as lacquered finishes on the kitchen cabinets and massive stone hearths, which would have been too costly and labor-intensive to replace. “I’m a big advocate of repainting and lacquering,” she says. “High gloss looks so fresh and so new.” The white kitchen cabinetry allows the live-edge dining table and woven-hide chairs to make a powerful statement, “which resonates with the woodlands,” the designer says. Although the clients requested a mostly neutral color scheme, for the family room and nursery Bikoff took cues from the vivid palettes of the wife’s paintings. “I wanted to take it up a notch,” she says.The designer then added shine and texture throughout the house, particularly in the master bedroom. Metallic grass cloth envelops the room, while mirrors hang from chains like earrings over burl-wood nightstands. A custom canopy bed, meanwhile, looks as if it were dipped in brass, and the room’s abstract-patterned rug is woven with metallic threads. “There’s a lot of repeat of the motifs the wife loves,” Bikoff says. “She’s really into jewelry, and she’s all about metals—that’s where her edginess comes from. She loves chrome and brass.”

Bikoff designed the live-edge dining table with a walnut slab from Indonesia through the David Alan Collection in Solana Beach, California. The woven-hide dining chairs are by Andrianna Shamaris, and the pendant lights are from Arteriors.

While those priorities remained top of mind, Bikoff maintained her vigil to invoke nature at every turn. Within a guest room’s taupe palette, for example, she chose wallpaper with an ivy pattern in cool grays. “It’s so dreamy,” she says. “It looks exactly like something you might see if you walked outside.” To add just the right amount of grunge, she incorporated funky globe lamps on side tables with chain-link bases. Friends and extended family stay in a guesthouse accessed through a window-lined corridor facing the river. Here, Bikoff was inspired by nature’s own palette. She swathed the corridor in a wallpaper that has an angled silver metallic pattern, making the wall look like a silvery rock face, and attached custom glossy green sconces that mimic antlers—a cheeky reference to the local deer population. This transitional space sets the tone for a guest room done in the colors of water and sky and outfitted with brass-trimmed Lucite lamps and sconces, svelte Chieftains chairs, a metallic tree-stump table and a silvery hide bench. It’s all part of Bikoff’s guiding design principle of embracing a home’s surrounding nature—only this time with an edge. “This is a very mod, glam, fresh way of looking at the outdoors,” she says.

ooking at artist Vladimir Kanevsky’s intricate porcelain flowers, it’s hard to imagine that he once secreted them away out of sheer embarrassment. “I worried they were too kitschy, so I hid them,” says the New Jersey local. “My passion had always been figurative sculpture, and I made the flowers just to pay the rent.” Today, Kanevsky’s botanical sculptures fetch quite a bit more than rent money, and they’ve become both a point of pride and a full-time passion for the artist. But it’s been a long road. Born in Kharkov, Ukraine, and formally trained as an architect in the U.S.S.R., Kanevsky emigrated to the United States in 1989. With only a couple hundred dollars in his pocket and no job prospects, he answered an advertisement from decorator Howard Slatkin looking for a ceramic artist. Kanevsky had minimal experience, barely spoke English and was nearly 40 years old at the time—and he had one month to learn porcelain making. Kanevsky’s creations were snatched up immediately. Enchanting and lifelike, the flowers caused a sensation among some of the city’s most well-heeled designers and tastemakers, including Charlotte Moss, Oscar de la Renta and Carolyne Roehm. Despite his success, however, he only came to think of the flowers as having serious artistic merit about eight years ago. “I realized that what I was doing was similar to making architecture or sculpture,” he says. “It’s the same mix of technology, structure, scale, history, science and art.” Not surprisingly, Kanevsky’s process begins in nature. “I love plants; I like to analyze their structure and anatomy,” he says. He studies and photographs specimens, often from his own garden, and dissects them. He then scans the parts into his computer, where he has a huge database of flowers and old botanical drawings. Although, he acknowledges, “when you sculpt, sketches mean nothing until you touch clay, stone or metal and your hands feel the material. Porcelain is fragile and can break easily. Sadly, many flowers die in the kiln.” But it’s challenges such as those that excite Kanevsky. Once, when making a lilac, where every branch is heavy with flowers, a large branch snapped and collapsed.

“WHEN YOU SCULPT, SKETCHES MEAN NOTHING UNTIL YOU TOUCH CLAY, STONE OR METAL AND YOUR HANDS FEEL THE MATERIAL.”

“I had to cut out the lower part and weld a new one,” he says. “It’s all engineering intuition; the same science, same principles.” Kanevsky works out of a small studio in his home, which he shares with his wife and business partner, Edita, in Fort Lee. There are six kilns, ranging from small to large, and a team of three assistants. Each flower is painstakingly crafted and hand-painted, then put away to be employed in a botanical sculpture at a later date. Just like a florist walks into the cooler to select blooms to make an arrangement, so does

Kanevsky handpick individual porcelain flowers to make one of his creations, many of which will be on display in an upcoming exhibit at The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Being surrounded by such exquisite handiwork, though, makes it hard sometimes to part with a piece. “Occasionally I finish one and don’t want to sell it,” Kanevsky says. “I fall in love and want to keep it, which often leads to a conflict with my wife, who is less sentimental. But when I feel that affection is gone, that’s when I sell it.”

F

or the past 25 years, designer Jennifer Post has been crafting chic contemporary interiors for a client roster packed with luminaries from the worlds of entertainment, art and business. And for 20 of those years, she has called an apartment in the storied Upper West Side Apthorp building home. In the two decades Post has lived there, though, the personal home improvements she has fit into her busy schedule have been largely cosmetic—some paint here; new furnishings and art there. But that recently changed. “Finally, I had the time to do a gut renovation for myself and do full custom interiors that reflect my aesthetic: clean, crisp, soft yet elegant,” she says. “I’ve never lived in an apartment that I completely designed myself from the studs.” Post dove all the way in, leaving no surface untouched during a year of nonstop construction. “I went down to the studs and original terra-cotta walls of the building,” she says. Tackling some layout changes, the designer moved the location of the master bathroom, turning the former site into a walk-in closet. In place of ornate architectural details—moldings, columns and fireplaces—Post chose a more pared-down look, with strategically placed recessed mirrors acting in their stead. She also completely rethought the materials palette; notably, the original parquet floors gave way to oversize slabs of Bianco Dolomiti marble, something the designer says she always imagined in her dream home. The flooring, shot through with veins of gray and taupe, establishes an elegant base and points to Post’s overall design philosophy, which emphasizes a clean soft-white color palette to create warm, comfortable spaces. A Venetian plaster finish on the walls complements the marble and amplifies the effect. “It’s warmer than a simple painted

wall—it has soft, minimal movement and reflects light, which is wonderful,” she says. Plush silk rugs made by the designer’s custom workroom and diaphanous draperies also bring another layer of warmth, softness and ease. Into the white framework come careful infusions of color. “I love a soft yellow palette in general—it makes me happy— so I specifically wanted to add that in my study,” Post says. The hue appears in the room on an area rug, a ledge beneath the TV, parts of the built-in desk facing a window and the sunshine-bright pillows and throw accenting the deep cream-colored sofa. When it comes to color, though, it is Post’s extensive contemporary art collection that makes the biggest splash—often it’s her artwork that inspires a room’s color scheme. She points to a large Jacqueline Humphries painting in shades of blue in her bedroom. “This is the first thing I see when I wake up, and it looks beautiful in the morning light,” she confides. It sets the tone for the blueand-white bedding and a tailored armchair in pale blue with crisp white piping. Besides the Humphries, Post’s ever-growing art collection includes a sculptural pair of dancing hares by Barry Flanagan, a Federico Herrero piece, two Robert Motherwells, a work by Russell Sharon, a sculpture by Boaz Vaadia and two others by Lynn Chadwick. All are newer acquisitions, and each was purchased following the designer’s simple criteria of choosing, she says, “things I know I will appreciate forever and that touch both my spiritual and intellectual sides.” As is the case with the Humphries—which always hangs in her bedroom—the larger pieces tend to stay in the same spots over time. Smaller pieces change positions or even lean against walls, like the Motherwell painting under a console in the foyer and photographs by Arnold Newman and André Villers on a bedroom shelf. Complementing the designer’s art collection are furnishings that read sexy, minimal and sculptural. “I like classic contemporary furniture; it will always be in style,” Post says. “But truly, I only select extremely comfortable pieces—which, after my years doing this, I know how to choose very well.” For instance, not only does the white lacquer headboard in her bedroom define the space (“like a punctuation mark,” she says) and establish a cocoon-like atmosphere, but it also “creates a serene feeling without overpowering the clean lines of the space,” she adds. Likewise, a low-slung sectional and a chair in the living room strike a balance, managing to be stylish yet inviting. Custom built-ins read as architectural elements, offering functionality while keeping the rooms from seeming cluttered. Though the reimagined bright spaces perfectly reflect her approach to projects, Post is quick to point out this isn’t a design lab or a showroom. Rather, it is a deeply personal refuge. “It’s my haven, and it allows me to have my lifestyle and be comfortable,” she says. “It’s all new, it’s white—which speaks to my core and my heart—and it showcases my art.”

A

s a first-time homeowner, Shana Randhava wanted to do everything right—and she did. First, she bought in the historic St. Mark’s area of New York City’s East Village, purchasing a quaint 26½-foot-wide gardenlevel co-op in a 19th-century Greek Revival town house. Interestingly enough, the home just happened to be the former residence of actress Chloë Sevigny. Second, Shana turned to California designer and artist Lauren Geremia, who enlisted assistance from builder Richard Baronio, to update the two-bedroom to reflect her soft and feminine style, one that combines her own laid-back West Coast roots with her polished New York lifestyle as an executive at Estée Lauder. The result is a romantic retreat with its own private entry in the building’s front garden, an effect that adds to a feeling of serene seclusion from the city. Geremia is based in the San Francisco Bay Area but grew up on the East Coast and studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design, making her the perfect designer to bridge the bicoastal sensibilities. “My work is contemporary, but I also love craft and old things,” she says. “I was very excited about the bare bones of the home’s architecture.” Shana’s town house came with its original beamed ceilings, wide-plank pine flooring, two wood-burning fireplaces and base moldings, and the designer knew pairing charming vintage furnishings with modern bespoke pieces would help strike a balance between old and new. For this project, Geremia prioritized a softer look than what’s typical of her designs, selecting a pale palette of white, pink, blush and lavender as well as touches of red, with gold and brass accents. “I chose a pink that’s more fleshy—not super sweet, girly or babyish,” she says. “We used adult pinks.” Hence, a daybed upholstered in pale pink is the sophisticated focal point of the living room, and a pink throw in a richer hue accents a cream sofa nearby. Touches of pink and red in the master bedroom’s multicolored Persian rug further unify the look. “The house is small and flows from one room to the next, so I wanted the palette to continue,” the designer says. “The colors complement the layout.”

“I WAS VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE BARE BONES OF THE HOME’S ARCHITECTURE.” –LAUREN GEREMIA

LX_NY29_HOM_Geremia.indd 302

The challenge, however, was bringing light into the garden-level residence, which opens with a Dutch door to a long hall that leads to the master bedroom and living room. The master bedroom has two windows facing the front garden, just off the street; in the rear, the kitchen and dining room look onto the back garden. The living room, tucked in the middle with a beamed ceiling and an existing wall of antiqued mirror, has no windows. It also had a wall of built-in bookshelves colored a receding black. To brighten the shelves, “we wired them for lighting and painted them white,” Geremia says. She also added a feminine vintage floor lamp to the room and tasked Lauren Larsen and Christian Swafford from Material Lust to assist with styling the bookcases. Known for their line of sculptural and provocative accessories, the design duo helped select objects and artwork to accompany the books on the shelves: brass bud vases, ceramic pieces and candle holders of various heights, among other items. “It’s a masculine approach to delicate objects,” Geremia explains. The installation is adjacent to the mirrored wall, which has beautiful age spots. Now the lights reflect off the mirror as well as the white walls and ceiling, illuminating the space. Light was already plentiful in the kitchen and dining area, which features original terra-cotta flooring and opens with another Dutch door to the rear garden. In the kitchen, Geremia removed an enclosed pantry to create a work space with a built-in desk. She left the hand-painted tiles on the wall and instead opted to update the existing black-painted cabinetry’s hardware with sleek ivory pulls. For the master bedroom, which receives filtered light from the two windows in the front, Geremia painted the room’s walls white, then dressed the windows in two layers of draperies. On the inside, a heavy velvet in cornflower blue-gray with tassel fringe offers privacy. Against the window is a lace sheer, which lets in just enough light during the day and “makes it pretty from the outside,” the designer says. As a benefit of working in New York, Geremia was able to tap into the East Coast designers and artists she became familiar with from her RISD days and work with them more intimately than she does from across the country. In the master bedroom, for example, Sawkille made the deep blue bed, DLV designed the handmade sheep settee, Jenny Blumenfield’s sandblasted ceramics top a dresser and Alexander Barton painted the artwork above the fireplace. The garden apartment is now the soft haven Shana imagined it could be: part airy, open West Coast vibes; part East Coast restraint—and with details that make it distinctly personal. Hanging from every hammered-clay doorknob are tassels that lend a beautiful touch, and two large framed panels of hand-painted floral murals punctuate the hall, bringing the outdoor surroundings inside. True to the spirit of its East Village neighborhood, the home is doing its own thing, which gives it a pedigree all its own.

ARCHITECTS

Ask the Expert Robert A. Cardello, AIA, Principal David LaPierre, AIA, Partner

What are your favorite styles to work on and why? I don’t prefer any one style in particular. We are versatile. However, I enjoy the use of natural materials in today’s world of plastics. It is important to remember that there is something tangible and recognizable about raw materials.

97 Washington Street Norwalk, Connecticut 203.853.2524 rc@cardelloarchitects.com cardelloarchitects.com

ROBERT A. CARDELLO ARCHITECTS

To hear Robert A. Cardello talk of his work is to glimpse his greatest passion. “The best moment is when you realize you have a great idea and begin developing it into a structure,” the renowned, Connecticutbased architect says. “The added bonus is seeing what you created come to fruition. I would never glorify our profession, as it has its ups and downs like any other, but to see your work evolve into a real structure is incredibly rewarding.” Fond of any creative pursuit and having framed houses in high school, Cardello spent much of his first years at Tulane University in architectural courses. During this time, he recognized his fervor for the field and chose to make it a career. This decision would ultimately culminate in the founding of his namesake firm, Robert A. Cardello Architects, which he today operates in collaboration with partner David LaPierre. Together, Cardello and LaPierre strive to offer a comprehensive range of exceptional services, from superb design to proper documentation and client management. In regard to the execution of great design, Cardello points to an understanding of the trade as key. “An architect should start out with an inherent sense of design,” he explains. “During school, the focus is on developing this. Once you are embedded in the profession, you are offered the opportunity to use these tools. Design should be innate, almost as a mechanism in your process. Great scale and proportion are paramount.” Encouraging everyone to engage an architect at some point in his or her life, Cardello believes the experience of the creative process is one worth having.

What are you working on next? We have a fun compound in La Jolla, California, which is very different from creating a four-bedroom family home. It will be made up of whimsical and recreational structures, which is a great change of pace for us. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? Many people are very insecure about the process. I understand why, as it’s often the most money they have spent on any one item in their life. That said, you need to believe and trust in your team.

FURNITURE + ACCESSORIES

Ask the Expert Dan Weiss, President and CEO John Weiss, COO

What are your favorite styles to work on and why? It is most interesting to design a space that brings together varying periods: everything from traditional antiques to midcentury modern pieces.

Norwalk, Connecticut South Norwalk, Connecticut Greenwich, Connecticut 203.847.3314 hello@lillianaugust.com lillianaugust.com

LILLIAN AUGUST FURNISHINGS + DESIGN

Dan and John Weiss find it rewarding to see a room come together beautifully. The two brothers, Dan is president and CEO, and John is COO, represent Lillian August Furnishings + Design, an iconic furniture boutique and design studio. The family business was launched by their mother, Lillian August, who started in textiles and wallcoverings more than 25 years ago and still designs the signature furniture, fabrics and accessories. Today, the empire has expanded to encompass four unique subsidiaries—interior design projects, to-the-trade support, retail and online stores, and Lillian August licensed collections. The company’s interior design projects division offers personalized service and expertise and is made possible by the more than 30 talented in-house interior designers. “Our design project clients range from celebrities and financial leaders with large-scale design projects to the walk-in client who just needs help choosing a few items to finish a room,” John says. In addition to its project clientele, Lillian August is a valued resource for interior design professionals. A full-time team of trade associates offers to-the-trade member business support as well as exclusive pricing and loyalty rewards. The Lillian August licensed collections, including a furniture line for Hickory White, are overseen by Lillian herself. The company’s success—an amalgam of Lillian’s eye and her sons’ Dan and John Weiss’s entrepreneurial spirit—is built on the idea that the creative process starts with knowing where their customers find inspiration. Not surprisingly, their mantra, “love how you live,” keeps driving the business forward.

How would you describe your clientele? Our clients range from celebrities and financial leaders with large-scale design projects to the walk-in client who needs help choosing a few items to finish a room. We are also a valued resource for interior design professionals. Our full-time team of trade associates offers to-the-trade members business support as well as exclusive pricing and loyalty rewards. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? To create a space in tune with your taste, be sure to share what you love with your designer. These days, pulling images from magazines and Instagram is incredibly easy.

HOME BUILDERS + REMODELERS

Ask the Expert Andrew Galdau Principal

Describe the philosophy behind your firm. I believe that all work should be held to a certain standard and performed with the same level of quality and craftsmanship, whether it’s a multimillion-dollar home or studio rental.

206 East 67th Street, Suite 66 New York, New York 212.327.1666 andrew@empirecitynyc.com empirecitynyc.com

EMPIRE CITY CONSTRUCTION

Empire City Construction, led by principal Andrew Galdau, understands the importance of masterfully combining detailed customer service with high-quality work. The New York-based firm is unique in the industry, offering a concierge-style experience unlike any other. “Our philosophy is to do everything we can to make life easier for our clients,” Galdau says. “We deal directly with architects and engineers, send real-time pictures and conduct video meetings if clients are out of town, and keep communication open at all times.” The firm’s most recent venture, a division focusing solely on the kitchen and bath, offers clients unique product options. For the kitchen, products can be sourced from Italian manufacturers exclusive to Empire or designed, fabricated and installed by their local craftsmen. For bathrooms, the firm provides full design-build services. While Empire City has ample experience in new construction, it is not the firm’s only forte. Galdau and his team frequently take on historic preservation and restoration projects. “Taking a building that has been neglected for 75 years and bringing it back to its original beauty is especially rewarding,” Galdau says. Having assisted in the recovery of several challenging projects started by other builders, the team also provides consulting and owner’s representative services. In addition to the plethora of services it offers before and during a project, the firm provides continuous support and maintenance to its clients, who often become friends in the process. “Once we finish a job, we’re kind of married to it, so we always come back and address any issues or updates,” he says. “With almost every job, we develop a long-term relationship with the client, so naturally we end up doing more work for them.”

NY29_Profiles_EmpireCity_0331.indd 1

What do you like most about your job? I enjoy creating something tangible. You’re working toward an end goal, you are problem solving along the way, and in the end, you have something that you can see, feel and know that you've created. How do you define luxury? I think luxury is less about extravagance and more about thoughtful design. It doesn’t all have to be expensive. The nicest homes have a flow; each space ties into the next and makes sense. That is luxury.

The unique, new features include sloped walls, custom mosaic tiles, wall inserts, custom millwork, waterfall-style Corian surfaces, and Waterworks plumbing fixtures and tile. 2. Empire City Construction exclusively designed this vanity to resemble a piece of furniture while housing a steam generator for the shower. The walls and floor of this room feature porcelain tile. 3. The parlor floor of this full town house renovation features a custom-built staircase with walnut treads and landings, Brazilian teak flooring, and a granite fireplace surround and hearth. 4.
