EDITOR’S LETTER

portrait: laura barisonzi.

Standing in the second oldest library in New York City. The balcony overlooks the library’s soaring three stories, made even grander by columns with golden Scamozzi Ionic capitals, an embellished frieze and a copper-andwrought-iron skylight.

“Between the pages of a book is a wonderful place to be.” -Anonymous

I’ve walked down West 44th Street in Manhattan at least three dozen times and never realized there was a historic architectural treasure, the second oldest library in New York City, just off Fifth Avenue. The Library of the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen was founded in 1820 to support the organization whose mission is to promote the welfare of artisans. Stepping into the oak and marble structure, originally designed by Lamb & Rich, is like entering a delicious moment back in time. I discovered the stately structure from our editors, who scouted the location for our wallpaper story in this issue. All of us native New Yorkers, yet none were aware that this charming athenaeum was down the street from our office. Beyond the architecture, the space was library nirvana. I’ve always had an affection for libraries and for books—both offer a sense of magical discovery, particularly of time and place. The beautiful old reading room on 44th Street made me aware that there’s always another gem left to discover…often right in front of you.

or a first-class show of drama, few seats compare to the back row of a fine art or design auction. Anticipation builds in the air as bids for one-of-a-kind objects fly at breakneck speed until the gavel comes down and a victor emerges. “I’ve seen people become very emotional at auctions,” says Dallas-based interior designer Michelle Nussbaumer. “Hearts start racing; there’s the thrill of the hunt, and the drama of winning or losing the prize.” That sense of excitement was evident at Sotheby’s recent Important Design auction in May. The cause of the buzz was a rare six-lot ensemble of Jean Royère furniture. In recent years, a feverish appreciation for French Modernism has emerged and that interest is concentrated on the works of Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand and, especially, Royère. Perhaps best known for his iconic polar bear sofa, the self-taught French designer and furniture maker bridged the gap between prewar elegance and postwar innovation. “People are considering these pieces within a larger context, such as what is complementary and harmonious in an interior,” says Jodi Pollack, co-worldwide head of Sotheby’s 20th-century design department. “Royère is so timeless, and it goes seamlessly with contemporary art.” But Royère isn’t the only Gallic name on buyer’s lips right now: Interest has been building for the surrealist works of husband-and-wife design duo François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne. Furniture doesn’t get much more fantastical than FrançoisXavier’s whimsical 1970 Sauterelle bar, which incited spirited bidding at auction. Shaped like a giant futuristic grasshopper, the object opens to reveal a sleek bar. Only one other such design exists and it belongs to Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh.

LX_COM21_Radar_Trove.indd 90

François-Xavier Lalanne is also responsible for the wooly Moutons de Laine. The lifelike sheep sculptures have become design darlings in recent years, and a rare grouping from the Reed and Delphine Krakoff collection fetched double its combined estimate at auction. “There are definitely areas, such as midcentury French design, that have increased in value because more people are looking for it,” says Peter Loughrey, director of modern design and fine art at Los Angeles Modern Auctions and Antiques Roadshow alum. “That said, we are also seeing an uptick in American design. George Nakashima’s work is peaking again. It was hot about 15 years

ago, then the marketplace cooled and now it’s popular again. What’s different are the collectors.” “Fifteen years ago, we were seeing collectors who were buying their 30th piece of Nakashima, but those people are no longer the most prominent players on the scene,” says Loughrey. Today’s collector is more likely to own five pieces by a single designer than 50. For these buyers, the true passion lies in the discovery process— learning about a designer’s work and finding that perfect piece to complement or provide an interesting counterpoint to an interior. One of the more daring pairings Pollack has witnessed in recent years involves the juxtaposition of postwar works by Jean-Michel Basquiat or Andy Warhol with one of the oldest and most revered names in modern decorative arts, Louis Comfort Tiffany, for a look that is definitely not your grandmother’s parlor. “I think there’s something so timeless and iconic about Tiffany,” she says. “It just goes to show—when the artistry is incredible and there is a high recognizable factor, the work remains relevant.”

AFFECTION FIVE DESIGNERS DISH ON THE THINGS THEY LOVE TO COLLECT IN THEIR OWN WORDS.

ELLIE CULLMAN I lived in Japan for the first two years of my marriage, where I developed a fondness for Asian antiques. The first thing we bought for our grown-up apartment was the 18th-century Chinese wallpaper in our dining room. I convinced my husband that I was saving him money on art by splurging on the wallpaper and he went along with it! We also bought a 17th-century screen showing an amazing view of Kyoto. As we traveled more throughout Asia, we acquired pieces from India, Cambodia and Tibet. The last thing I bought was a 13th-century Buddha in Japan, which sort of sums it all up for me—it’s the embodiment of tranquility.

ALEXA HAMPTON Even before I realized I was a classicist, I was drawn to souvenirs of the grand tour— items collected by well-heeled European tourists of the 18th century as a memento of their cultural journey. Growing up as part of the Hampton family, my sister and I began our own grand tours at 10 and eight, respectively. Of everything we took in through travel, gelato not included, I was especially drawn to ancient Rome and Greece, and their antiquities. Today my collection includes columns, urns, intaglios, obelisks, busts and, my favorite, tempiettos! To me, the pieces are imbued with talismanic magic, reminding me of youth, family, feeling sophisticated and scholarly, and my first experiences of the world outside of my immediate, familiar surroundings.

LX_COM21_Radar_Trove.indd 92

FRANK DE BIASI

In my background working for Christie’s and Peter Marino, I was exposed to high-quality antiques I could never afford. Over the years, I started buying things I liked at flea markets or galleries when I could. One area of recent ongoing interest is North African vintage photography from the 1860s through the turn of the last century. When photography was first developed in the mid-19th century, people went out with their cameras and tried to document life in an almost National Geographic kind of way. I love to travel, and these photos never fail to draw your eye into their world with their sepia tones.

OLIVER M. FURTH As a native Angeleno, I’ve always had a passion for the work of California ceramicists. I buy works by contemporary makers like Adam Silverman and Ben Medansky, and vintage 20th-century pottery by Laura Andreson and Beatrice Wood. There’s a beautiful intimacy in the journey from one person’s hands to another’s that you can’t really replicate with any other material. Peter Voulkos is credited for cracking the mold on ceramics and changing it from utility to sculpture, so I think ceramics are a big part of our creative history in Los Angeles.

MICHELLE NUSSBAUMER I collect so many things that my house is a maximalist explosion. I’ve collected African currency, Russian icons and, lately, Henri Matisse-style odalisque paintings. But my favorite collection of all is the most personal: From the time my oldest son was four through his mid-20s, he would climb trees and, if he found an abandoned bird’s nest, he would give it to me. I have 30 nests in all displayed on little stands. He knew I loved nature; it was a special thing that we had together as mother and child, which I’ll always cherish.

Clockwise from top left: Personal passions of these designers include North African vintage photography, California pottery, an early 11th-century Indian bust, African currency and grand tour souvenirs.

BRIGHT SPOT DYNAMIC ARTISANS ARE MERGING CERAMICS WITH LIGHTING TO CREATE THEIR OWN SCULPTURAL WORKS OF ART. WE EXPLORE FOUR WHO ARE AT THE FOREFRONT. WRITTEN BY SHANNON SHARPE

ERIC ROINESTAD LOS ANGELES An evening ceramics class is what first drove Eric Roinestad’s passion for clay. “My friend persuaded me to take it,” he says. “After that I was hooked.” It was a hobby until five years ago when furniture company Lawson-Fenning approached him about selling his precise, wheel-thrown vessels. His progression into lighting was spurred by David Alhadeff, owner of The Future Perfect. “He really pushed me to explore the possibilities of light,” Roinestad says. “He encouraged going bigger, more sculptural and more complex.” The resulting dramatic pieces are inspired by everything from his California environment to ancient Etruscan forms to both historical and modern architecture—all designed with the goal of creating a visual dialogue. “Just because something has a function doesn’t mean it can’t be sculpture,” he says. It’s further evidence of the ongoing convergence between art and design. “People are just more aware of sculptural ceramics,” he points out, “whether it is a light or something else.”

T

hanks to a force of renowned craftspeople, lighting has evolved in recent years from mere fixture to work of art and, in some cases, status symbol. Likewise, ceramics have had a similar trajectory from their humble origins. Today’s clay forms are both vessel and mode of artistic expression, and a new breed of ceramicists has emerged, combining these two mediums to create luxurious, one-of-a-kind fixtures.

GISELLE HICKS

JOHN SHEPPARD NEW YORK Two years ago, after spending more than a decade as a magazine art director, New York ceramicist John Sheppard switched careers to pursue his hobby of making pottery professionally. His foray into lighting was experimental, simply a way to make bigger objects and play with function. “It’s an interesting design challenge,” Sheppard says. “Not only do I have to think about form and finish, but also how the light interacts with those things.” Almost ironically, Sheppard partly credits technology for the evolution of lighting from functional object to art. “Part of the reason fixtures are more sculptural, and people are taking more risks is due to LED technology,” he says. “A lamp no longer has to hold a traditional bucket of bulbs. People can now make different types of forms.” Plus, he observes, there is a beauty to balancing the swiftness of lighting with the imperfection of ceramics. “Refined and polished is the opposite of what I do,” he says. “My work is individual, and people are drawn to that. They know that this particular thing was made just for them.”

LX_COM21_Radar_Bespoke.indd 96

Artisan Giselle Hicks has spent 20 years working in ceramics, but in all her material explorations and travels—she’s lived, studied and worked in California, New York, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Montana—she never experimented with designing lamps. Then she was approached by Syrette Lew of Moving Mountains, a Brooklyn-based design studio committed to working with artisans. Lew wanted to collaborate with Hicks for the Sight Unseen Offsite annual design showcase. “She said she loved my vessels,” Hicks says. “Then, she asked if I would be interested in making them into lamps. It was kind of a curveball for me!” But Hicks was game and jumped at the opportunity to take on the challenge. The timing was perfect, not just because—as Lew pointed out—“lighting is popular right now,” but also because of the resurgence of the artisanal movement, in which the handcrafted is seen as a luxury. “A handmade object just feels special,” says Hicks. “It’s a richer experience to feel like an object has a story and someone put their hands on this thing and made these decisions for you.”

RYAN MENNEALY LAKE FOREST, CALIFORNIA Designer Ryan Mennealy makes lighting that speaks to people. Or at least sends a message—through Morse code. “I wanted to secretly say something,” the former set-designer-turned-ceramicist says of why he decided to incorporate inspiring words into his work through a series of holes representing dots and dashes. “Putting positive affirmations in the world is something that drives me.” Mennealy’s lamps also communicate in a less literal way, instilling an unspoken connection through each one’s uniqueness. “There is something special about a piece that someone took the time to make and there is only one,” he says. “People are purchasing something they take pride in,” he explains. “At a certain point, price doesn’t matter. It becomes an heirloom piece.” And as the demand for the handcrafted continues to grow, so does the realization that the lines of what defines art are now blurred. “Lamps can be works of art,” he says. “They just happen to light up.”

NEW HORIZONS A FABRIC HOUSE WITH A STORIED PAST MAKES ITS FORAY INTO FURNITURE. FABRICUT CREATIVE DIRECTOR JODI FINER SHARES HER VISION AND DESCRIBES HOW HERITAGE PLAYS A DEFINING ROLE. PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER MCINTYRE WITH KATHRYN GIVEN PHOTOGRAPHY BY DOUG YOUNG

From fabric to furniture…what made you move in this direction? Our intent was to provide not only more and better products, but also an online experience that aligns with what is happening in the marketplace today. Looking at our industry, and beyond to the world of fashion, art and architecture led us to traditional and transitional pieces with clean lines and unique details. For example, the smallest addition of a playful curve on an arm of a chair can slightly modernize a piece. The furniture is all about options! It runs the gamut from sofas to dining chairs to upholstered beds and headboards. With more than 10,000 upholstery fabric choices, plus the ability to choose from six wood finishes, two metal options and a variety of shapes, sizes and depths, these staples provide a strong foundation. But what remains true to our core as a heritage, family-owned brand are the high-quality standards we abide by—each item is handcrafted in High Point, North Carolina, with the utmost attention to detail. Explain the meaning behind some of the names, such as the Harvey and Webster chairs. The names reflect people, personalities and personal items that have made a mark in our firm and influenced us to look toward the future through a lens of creativity and passion. Harvey Nudelman was our past president who worked with my grandfather, father and me. As a leader and sales person, he left an indelible legacy on our company. And the Webster Track Arm Chair (shown right) is personally inspired by the dictionary. As a child, I was fascinated by the root origins of words, so I’d sit for hours in our living room rummaging through the dictionary and quizzing family members.

LX_COM21_Radar_Launch.indd 98

Do you have a favorite piece? If I had to pick one, it would be the Helga Lounge Chair—a traditional name that reminded me of the furniture business my grandfather owned in Germany before he immigrated to the United States prior to World War II. While the chair’s lines feel more contemporary, it is a smaller scale piece that brings dimensionality to a space and works in every room. What does luxury mean to you? Luxury means the freedom to choose: to be who you want to be and to decide what you surround yourself and live with in your life.

FLORAL DESIGNER ARIEL DEARIE SHARES HER VISION OF LUXURY THROUGH AN ARTFUL ASSEMBLY OF NATURE’S FRESHEST OFFERINGS. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER PHOTOGRAPHY BY ZACH & BUJ

C

ut flowers have long been a symbol of opulence: It is believed that ancient Egyptians decorated their homes with blossoms, and Greeks and Romans tossed petals onto floors and beds for special occasions. Such indulgences speak to the power of fresh blooms as a lavish addition to any setting. “Flowers have such fleeting beauty—to me, there’s nothing more luxurious than using elements that are the most exquisite in the moment,” says floral designer Ariel Dearie. For the arrangement seen here, intricate tree peonies, plucked at their peak, take the lead, while variegated geranium, mini lilies and kumquats play supporting parts. “When I design, I want the arrangements to feel full, yet airy and whimsical, so negative space plays a big role,” says Dearie. Indeed, one of her signature moves is to let the blooms show a little leg—the stems become part of the arrangement. The effect is lush, yet deliberate and understated. “Quite often with flower arranging, less really is more,” she says.

A floral palette of soft creams and burnt oranges represents the transition from late summer to early fall. The Regencystyle table is from Theodore Alexander.

SCHOOL of ROCKS The INSIDERS One year ago, Élan Flowers relocated from TriBeCa to SoHo, quickly becoming a neighborhood favorite and curating arrangements with exceptional designs dictated by which blooms are freshest and in season at the moment. The company has been delighting and cultivating relationships with its clientele for more than 30 years. Here, husband-and-wife owners Patrick and Christine Hall discuss bringing beauty and joy to SoHo and beyond. elanflowers.com

In October, L’École School of Jewelry Arts returns to New York at the Academy Mansion on the Upper East Side. Founded in 2012, with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, the school offers programs and exhibits that provide insight into the art of jewelry design, and has showcased timeless pieces including Van Cleef & Arpels’ Ruban bracelet and Noble Hunt Vanity and Cigarette Case (above). L’École President Marie Vallent-Delhom explains, “Jewelry-making has been rooted in the expertise of a select few and passed down through direct apprenticeship, but the programs here break down barriers to the world of jewelry for everyone.” Lectures, classes and workshops will be offered on subjects from Japanese urushi lacquer design to the history and gemology of engagement rings. But the most intriguing display may be the never-before-seen collection of 40 dazzling pieces that will be shown in its entirety for the first time. lecolevancleefarpels.com

Where do you find inspiration? Patrick: For our 25th wedding anniversary, we went to the South of France. We traveled all over Provence, scouring the markets for inspiration and going to the lavender fields. Christine: We brought some treasures home with us that we’ll have for sale in the shop soon. What do you like about SoHo? P: Getting to know our neighbors has been really great. We help people with everything from baby showers to engagement announcements. We’re also doing collaborations in the neighborhood. Christine has worked with the SoHo Grand Hotel and also collaborated with a designer, Mimi Prober, whose studio is just down Grand Street from us. C: When someone’s favorite flower comes in, we may even shoot them an e-mail and say, “Ah! Guess what just came in?” Those are the kinds of relationships we’re building, which really makes it a joy. You’re known for your classic style. Do you ever follow trends? C: Our palettes and designs change based on the seasons, but the style always stays classic—the spiral stem, the beautiful garden style. Where we sometimes pay attention to trends is for events. Anything in the works? C: We’re leading a wreath-making workshop and we will continue to offer our classic floral design workshops. 124 / LUXESOURCE.COM

INSIDE EDITION

“We’re seeing trends in light; it’s very important in architecture. The way you treat lighting in a home can completely change the environment and create a unique experience. I’m also in love with Italian marbles like Breccia Capraia, which has a lot of colors and veins. Sometimes you can fi nd greens and Bordeaux in the same slab. The colors are so rich, and the veins are so playful.”

“Clients desire visually enticing spaces with quality and comfort, including lush bedding, antique furnishings, art, linens and closet customization. I love Oushak rugs— the older, the better—but many weavers are realizing how to age the fibers to create a finished product that generates a history without hundreds of years of aging. An antique or reproduction rug brings an instant sensibility to a home.”

“I design a lot of my own furniture, and I’m loving mixing metals and incorporating them into a lacquer or wood piece. If a table has a channel with inlaid brass or nickel, it gives it that extra step of detail. Also, one of the big things for clients is 1,000-thread-count sheets. The bill will come in, and the client will say, ‘What?’ And I’ll say, ‘Just sleep on them for one night.’ And then they’re doing every bed in the house.”

“I think many people have gotten away from using fake fi nishes. Clients are now loving painted finishes that are really well done, especially if they have a little bit of silver underlay to them. I also love to use silk velvet in my projects. The variety of colors is so beautiful. People think, ‘Oh, it’s precious and it won’t hold up,’ but as silk velvet ages, if it’s good quality, it starts to bloom—and it gets even better.”

HEROIC FINISH WRITTEN BY NINA KORMAN

Synonymous with acts of courtesy, the word “chivalry” can also apply to an ordinary person undertaking extraordinary tasks. Los Angelesand Paris-based designer Timothy Corrigan is undaunted by seemingly insurmountable challenges. Specifically, home redesign—on a grand scale. Currently finalizing the restoration and renovation of a sprawling 18th-century structure in France—aptly named Château de la Chevallerie, the last word meaning “chivalry”—Corrigan knows his valiant endeavor calls for rooms where comfort and elegance coexist. Another must that earned him the nickname “Trim-o-thy” in the industry: the finishing touch imparted by myriad tassels, borders, braid and fringe, also known as passementerie. Samuel & Sons, premier purveyors of passementerie, logically tapped Corrigan to develop a new collection that would fuse his classicism with contemporary colors. Throughout his career, he’s created product lines for Royal Limoges Paris, Fromental and Schumacher, among others. Visits to the Royal Limoges archives and a lace museum nearby as well as the château’s decorative elements fueled Corrigan’s imagination and led to the Chevallerie collection. Nearly all handmade, in materials like velvet and satin, its nine complex patterns in eight rich colorways are stocked at Samuel & Sons showrooms around the world. Reanimating an old-world art and yielding something new and timeless: What greater example of chivalry could there be? samuelandsons.com

BLUEPRINT THREE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED CONDOMINIUMS IN THE CITY BECKON WITH ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS THAT SPEAK TO THE SENSES.

▲ 90 MORTON

On Morton Street in the West Village, a turn-of-the-century building—with light-filled, loft-like spaces— is transforming into 90 Morton, comprising 35 boutique residence condos by the end of the year. “We opted to juxtapose the repetitive nature of a classical architecture with a worldview driven by a desire to maximize the attributes of every space and aspect,” says concept architect Asaf Gottesman of GS Arch. The interiors, by Leroy Street Studio, will include exposed columns and beams contrasted with new stone, oak, ornamental metalwork and polished plaster. 90mortonst.com

▲ THE XI In West Chelsea, architect Bjarke Ingels’ The XI is creating a buzz. The east tower’s residences, due by early 2019, will feature custom interiors by Parisian design team Gilles & Boissier, featuring Italian-made Molteni kitchen cabinetry and bathroom flooring of Arabescato Vagli marble. “What we really want is to create a sensory experience,” says designer Dorothée Boissier. Meanwhile, Gabellini Sheppard Associates is designing the interiors of the west tower’s 149 residences, incorporating an Old Hollywood palette and ancient materials. Designer Kimberly Sheppard says the team hopes to create something “that has its own narrative; a river that flows from room to room.” thexi.com

▲ 53W53 Midtown will soon be home to a gracefully tapered condominium tower designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Jean Nouvel. Coming in 2019, the new residence, named 53W53, sits beside MoMA, which will have three gallery levels within the tower. “Architecture is art, and architecture is born from its situation, from its context,” Nouvel says. Each residence will have a unique floor plan with interiors by architect and designer Thierry Despont, who incorporated hand-stained wood floors, fully bespoke kitchens and bathrooms of Italian-finished Verona limestone. 53w53.com

CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE, JOHN B. MURRAY BY ELIZABETH HEILMAN BROOKE MURRAY

John B. Murray's latest monograph tells the tale of timeless homes, from architectural drafts to finishing touches. With designer Brian McCarthy, Murray transformed a Manhattan pied-à-terre (shown) in a J.E.R Carpenter Italian Renaissance-style building into an entertaining space with a grand entry that opens into a large living room. Grab a glass of Champagne—you’ve arrived.

Bunny Mellon was known for her green thumb. One of the many properties she shared with her husband was Oak Spring, a 4,000-acre farm in Virginia that housed thoroughbred breeding and racing operations, barns and hunting grounds. It was reserved for entertaining the most highbrow of guests, from U.S. politicians to Queen Elizabeth II. Inside the greenhouse’s central pavilion (shown), doors canvassed in custom trompe l’oeil murals feature Mellon’s favorite things—baskets, sapphire wedding bands and a denim hat.

With a clientele that includes the British Royal Family and the Queen of Denmark, international design maven Nina Campbell’s tome demonstrates the breadth of her stylish work using color and textural materials. This Manhattan apartment (shown), which Campbell worked on with New York-based architectural firm Ferguson & Shamamian, reflects the designer’s ability to create highly stylized interiors that are steeped in English traditionalism. Together, they accomplished the client’s only directive, “that each element should conjure happiness.” Summon a little joy with the help of these sartorial selects. 1. 36-inch Single-Strand Tassel Necklace / Flapper Collection / $7,400 / mariacanale.com 2.

Christian Dior entrusted the interiors of his homes and boutiques to two friends: Georges Geffroy and Victor Grandpierre. Grandpierre designed the petite boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris (shown), a jewel box adorned with white moldings, painted in Dior gray, and fashioned with Louis XVI seating and neoclassical touches. To celebrate Roger Vivier’s collection of shoes for the brand, Grandpierre created display alcoves covered in beads, feathers and satin rosettes. Tres chic!

The Tureen Tasked by de Gournay to create a magical dinnerware service, designer Jeffrey Bilhuber imagined Alchemy. Handmade and painted by artisans in its Jingdezhen studio, the vivid botanical motif is inspired from Dutch still life florals with a whimsical splash of molten gold. The porcelain tureen commands the tablescape, sparking conversation and wonder. degournay.com The Chair As an ode to Jayne Wrightsman, who popularized the Napoleon III style of upholstery, the Wrightsman chair by Jonas epitomizes high style. The arm’s spiral, reminiscent of a ram’s horn, is a symbol indicative of the period. The piece is shown left upholstered in Dedar’s Adamo & Eva Cotton Velvet in Bouteille with trim in Argentina Taffeta in Olive. jonasworkroom.com

The Sculpture This one-of-a-kind handhammered 1041 piece takes shape from a single sheet of fine silver and is handpolished to a silk-matte finish. Shortly after creating the piece for Georg Jensen’s 50th anniversary in 1954, Henning Koppel destroyed the original 1041 because he was unsatisfied with the proportions and shape of the piece. In honor of what would be Koppel’s 100th birthday, Georg Jensen revived the sculpture with the help of three-dimensional modeling tools. georgjensen.com

FLEETWOOD WINDOWS & DOORS Looking back, many milestones have contributed to the American success story of Fleetwood Windows & Doors, the original leader in expansive glass sliding doors. The company was founded in 1961 as the “Cadillac of sliding doors” and remains the best-in-class to this day. Fleetwood brought to market its original Archetype 3-inch sliding door roller in 2005, and hasn’t looked back since. “Over the past 10 years, we have nearly doubled our facility size and made multimillion-dollar investments in infrastructure and staff growth,” COO Mark McCoy says. “We will be releasing three new products this year and a fourth in early 2019.” Among them is the Series 4800-T, the nextgeneration window-wall boasting massive sizes (30-by-30-feet) with excellent energy performance; the Series 450-T, a casement/awning window featuring slim sightlines and proprietary stainless-steel hardware; and the Series 4400-T, a weather-rated, thermally broken pivot door with a patented draining system.

WORKPLACE TO DESIGN: A Q+A ON THE AMERICAN WAY What part of your product/design is American made? All designs are American and 95 percent of the product and its components are made in America. The remaining 5 percent is typically made up of support components, such as screws. What words or images come to mind when hearing the phrase, ‘Made in America’? Quality, honesty, craftsmanship. What are your favorite materials to work with and why? Aluminum. It is naturally plentiful, sustainable, and delivers durability and longevity. Your company’s philosophy? One-hundred-percent devotion to the luxury home market. Build it better, not cheaper or faster. Unceasingly innovative and often imitated. Define the American aesthetic? There isn’t just one, which is one of the great things about America. It is a true melting pot of everything (design, food, language, style, etc.) and fusion is everywhere. What does ‘Made in America’ mean to you and how do you see it evolving? To us, it means resurgence in patriotism and a reflection of general dissatisfaction of products produced elsewhere. We believe the trend will manifest itself in the increased market demand for more products to be produced domestically.

LACANTINA DOORS Throughout its first 10-plus years in business, LaCantina Doors established itself as an industry pioneer, specializing in designing folding door systems and the first to have dedicated manufacturing in the United States. Due to LaCantina’s commitment to innovation, performance, quality and value, the company experienced rapid growth and moved its headquarters several times, eventually settling in a 141,000-squarefoot manufacturing space in 2016. Still specializing and innovating in open-space, window-wall, and indoor-outdoor systems, LaCantina rounded out its product offering to include a new class of multi slide and a complete range of swing doors for the total door package. LaCantina has quickly become recognized as the leading brand of large opening door and window systems in North America. As these operable wall systems continue to drive architectural design, LaCantina will continue to lead the development and innovation of open-space products. “We offer the most evolved systems that deliver the best quality for the best value,” Vice President and General Manager Lee Maughan says.

“LaCantina’s products are made to measure from its state-of-the-art San Diego, California, manufacturing facility, ensuring high-level functionality and a flawless fit and finish.”

THE NEW AMERICAN RENAISSANCE IN DESIGN: LACANTINA DOORS PIONEERING DESIGN. LaCantina prides itself on being an integral part of the new American Renaissance in design. Clean contemporary designs, innovative features and high quality characterize its folding and multi-sliding door and window systems. SMART + GREEN. With designs that come standard with low-e, dual-paned tempered glass for improved thermal performance, LaCantina uses best in “glass” materials, providing unmatched product quality, value and visual appeal.

WESTERN WINDOW SYSTEMS Simply put, Western Window Systems is known as a leader in the design and manufacturing of high-quality, moving glass walls and windows. But this industry-setting company is much more than the sum of its parts. Over the last 12 months, it has launched 12 groundbreaking products in its Series 7000 performance line, and also introduced a multi-slide door and window that can reach heights of 17 feet without sacrificing energy efficiency. To boot, it was named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018. “We want every customer to know that they are supporting a company creating jobs and building products right here in America,” president and CEO Scott Gates says.

“Now more than ever, Americans want indoor spaces to blend seamlessly with the great outdoors; they want bigger glass without sacrificing energy efficiency, and they want a contemporary aesthetic that can be customized.”

GATES ON THE AMERICAN SPIRIT: LOCAL + LOOKING FORWARD Our vision is unique for a window and door company. When we built our state-of-the-art plant and office environment, we wanted people to feel like they were visiting Google, not a window company. That translated into the inclusion of Lego walls, arcade games and a slide from the second floor to the first. As a result, our staff loves being here, we love our staff, and they do incredible work that people love. To showcase the creativity that exists within the community, Western Window Systems contracted two local artists to create vivid, unique murals, which have become trademarks of the building’s design. Looking forward, Western Window Systems continues its passionate ambition, making products more energy-efficient, stronger and in larger sizes, and in more complex configurations. We won’t stop until you have a wallsize, Jetsons-inspired door that is voice-controlled and can also be used as a TV. New projects, new designs, new direction … Western Window Systems exemplifies the innovative American spirit.

Influenced by a childhood surrounded by the elegant, effortless style of her parents, and later, a career in fashion under the tutelage of fashion icons Adrienne Vittadini and Eli Tahari, there was a certain inevitability that Linherr Hollingsworth would one day enter the world of luxury interior design. Her design studio, a former shovel factory in Norwalk, Connecticut, exudes the subtle sophistication and uncontrived elegance for which she is known. “My belief is that our spaces should have a free-spirited yet refined vibe, and that’s reflected in my love of all that is beautiful and naturally, perfectly imperfect,” she says. Hollingsworth’s work is often a study in contrast and juxtaposition: hard and soft, polished and honed, reflective and absorbent, restrained and elaborate, ethereal and edgy. “I’m constantly seeking to create just the right tension between materials ... a play between dueling contrasts ... simplicity with an edge versus strength with an air of femininity,” she says. The highly creative and reflective designer, whose work centers on evoking curiosity, emotion and inspiration, is acutely aware of the influential role her work plays in shaping a family’s quality of life. This responsibility remains a powerful, motivating force in her practice. “Our initial influence is driven by the client and their desired function of a space,” she explains. “We always seek to create interiors that inspire; we’re driven by the artful process of delivering individually unique interiors with an element of the unexpected, something soulful to make one stop and think. Above all else, we create interiors that speak to my innate belief of living well in low-key luxury.”

Define luxury. Speaking to interiors, luxury can be defined by the quality of materials used to create a space and the joy one experiences when the energy and unspoken dialogue of that space translates into living well.

1. With a focus on quality and custom craftsmanship, Hollingsworth’s collaboration with Christopher Peacock creates a kitchen that delivers the highest level of function, integrating technology with a calm, cohesive aesthetic. 2. This master bedroom exudes a refined, understated glamour using form and texture. Selected pieces from Holly Hunt, Ted Abramczyk and artwork by Donald Sultan set the tone for a modern, organic look. 3. Naturally contrasting materials of bleached-wood beams, clay walls with a glimmer of hand-applied mica and an expansive white lacquer floor create a Zen atmosphere. 4. This tranquil master bath immersed in natural light offers a soothing palette of organic textures, combining spa-like technology in a clean architectural design for a fresh effect.

Today’s edited approach to designing interiors often includes relying on minimalistic details to provide balance in a room. Forget the stark white box method—incorporating graphic lines, natural materials and clean surfaces into kitchens and bathrooms allows other decorative elements to shine, creating harmonious and livable areas of the home. Whether it be a black-and-white color scheme in a Los Angeles guest space, open shelving in a Mandeville Canyon, California kitchen or a marble backdrop

in a London residence, the details employed by designers in these pages prove that every element counts when it comes to overall aesthetics. The “less is more” concept is exemplified in this Los Angeles kitchen imagined by designer Windsor Smith, who masterfully mixes components including European antiques, industrial storage and rustic flooring. The final result is a minimalist space that, while both casual and comfortable, is “not overly thought through or contrived,” Smith explains.

Above: In this Los Angeles, California kitchen designed by Windsor Smith, leather and iron armchairs from Melissa Levinson Antiques sit under Suzanne Kasler pendant lights by Visual Comfort, while a black Lacanche range and rotisserie from La Cornue anchor the far side of the room. Opposite: Smith designed the space with two sinks— one across from the range and the other next to the dishwashers—in order to have cleaning areas separate from the heart of the kitchen. The Franke sinks, Dornbracht faucets and Gaggenau dishwashers are from Ferguson.

The hatch windows in this Los Angeles home’s breakfast nook, which is mainly used during the morning hours, provide a beautiful view of the surrounding oak trees on the estate. A vintage Spanish tin-and-glass lantern hangs from the vaulted ceiling.

CLEAN SLATE WINDSOR SMITH

What were the goals for this kitchen? The owners were at a point in their lives where they wanted only what they needed and enjoyed, rather than having lots of elements behind cupboard doors that were never used. From there it was about finding unique ways to display the pieces they did have and to make the overall space have a ‘collected’ vibe. Tell us about your approach to kitchen tables. The long, oversize kitchen table (shown on previous page) is something I do in a lot of my projects and, in this case, because the property has ample gardens and produce, it really is all about farm to table. However, this surface also functions as a prep station and dining space. How does the furniture contribute to the eclectic feel of the space? I used several one-of-a-kind, found items as well as reclaimed components like the table, chairs and shelving. The mixture of a lot of negative space with these older pieces that have provenance is exciting. It feels less intentional; it’s a bit of a surprise.

When it comes to kitchens, most designers aim to create a space that is functional yet also visually appealing or, as Windsor Smith puts it, “easy on the eyes.” While Smith didn’t originally set out to build a modern space, this Los Angeles Mandeville Canyon project took a contemporary turn incorporating the minimalist sensibility of negative space with vintage pieces for an all-embracing multifaceted feel. windsorsmithhome.com

For her first foray into tile design, interior designer Nicole Fuller decided there was no better medium than the one used by the ancient Egyptians: terrazzo. This idea combined with the contemporary patterns of her Whimsy collection for Ann Sacks “represents a blurring of the lines between modern and traditional,” Fuller says. Four patterns, including Palm (far left) and Ellsworth (left), come in several colorways. annsacks.com

MODERN MARBLE

“Its proximity to royalty makes this home quite unique,” says designer Katharine Pooley of the landmark residence she designed in St. James’s, England, just a short distance from Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. The historic space deserves a statement-making bathroom, so Pooley selected striking Milas Lilac book-matched marble on all vertical elements allowing for a mirror-like phenomena. Milky white Thassos marble on the floor and vanities balances the bold stone and lets the architectural fireplace take center stage. katharinepooley.com

The layout of this guest bathroom in St. James’s, England, had to be carefully considered in order to retain the original fireplace, while also adding a stand-alone bathtub and shower.

“The clients wanted to bring in more of the traditional aspects but they also like a lot of elements, so the goal for the space was to keep it fresh and clean while also layering. It was quite the balancing act.” –SHANNON WOLLACK

The black-and-white color scheme in this Hancock Park, Los Angeles guest bathroom by Studio Life.Style is anything but two-toned. Instead, it packs a punch with classic Royal Stone flooring and a feminine floral Cowtan & Tout wallcovering, all tempered by the custom industrial-feeling shower door. “One of our signatures is always using black with touches of brass,” explains Shannon Wollack, founder and partner of the design firm. “Using this color on something as basic as shower doors really provides an architectural moment,” says the designer. studio-lifestyle.com

OUR ANNUAL LOOK AT REAL ESTATE—FROM DREAM PROPERTIES TO TRENDS IMPACTING THE MARKET RIGHT NOW. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

ENCHANTED ESTATE When one imagines the ideal getaway property, the words picturesque and magical might come to mind. The breathtaking homes on the following pages have those traits in spades. Take the idyllic 18th-century house, seen here, which is currently on the market. Tucked away in a secluded Irish valley, this castle-like hunting lodge is known as Luggala and boasts a rich, bohemian history. Owned by the Guinness family of stout brewing fame, the home has hosted an array of authors, actors and musicians, including Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull, in its heyday. But an intriguing history is only one of the many factors that makes a property alluring. Location and amenities also come into play. Here we speak with some of the real estate industry’s biggest movers and shakers to find out what’s motivating today’s luxury buyers.

OPEN HOUSE

THREE SPRAWLING ESTATES OFFER NOTEWORTHY RESIDENCES, BUT IT’S THE GROUNDS AND AMENITIES THAT MAKE THESE CURRENT LISTINGS OVER-THE-TOP.

LOS ANGELES

Imagine taking a lavish estate from Newport, Rhode Island, and setting it down in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, and you’ve captured the essence of this 1920s-era Italian Renaissance Revival house. Set on a resort-like property, the 9,000-square-foot residence comes with gardens, a pool, a pool house, a 10-car motor court and a three-car garage. Why we love it: While the grounds are impressive, it’s the details inside, such as the intricately painted ceiling seen here, that will make a historic home lover’s heart race. $16.995 million, 426 N. Barrington Ave.; pacificunionla.com

NAPA VALLEY

STUNNING WINE COUNTRY COMPOUND Cabernet vines and olive trees line the winding drive to this grand residence in the heart of Napa. Surrounded by thousands of acres of preserved land, this property offers total privacy and amazing views for the ultimate getaway. Some of the luxury amenities include a fourisland cook’s kitchen, bathrooms that open to private gardens, a pool with an amazing view and, of course, an impressive wine cellar. Why we love it: Featuring steel windows, stone floors and antique reclaimed timbers, the 10,000-square-foot main house is an exercise in French-inspired elegance. $17 million, 777 Lommel Road; gingermartin.com

HAMPTONS

PASTORAL DOMAIN ON LONG ISLAND Attention farmers, equestrians and aspiring vintners: This bucolic 10-building complex is spread across approximately 3 acres in the town of Sagaponack, adjacent to the famed Wölffer Estate. Living spaces include a new main house, a 1920s farmhouse, five restored barns and a two-car garage with an apartment, all designed, built and renovated by local architect Val Florio and McGrath Builders. Why we love it: One of the barns has been converted to a cozy tavern with a fireplace so you can have the experience of going to a bar without leaving home. $12.5 million, 134 Narrow Lane; sothebys.com

FANTASY ISLAND LX_COM21_TheReport.indd 233

Built in 1890 and designed by architects Sidney Stratton and Stanford White, this historic manse in Westchester, New York, is called ‘All View.’ Named for the jaw-dropping scenery that surrounds it, the property features panoramic views of Echo Bay and the Long Island Sound. The landscaping was originally created by Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park, and the grounds include a private beach, boat dock, a mosaic-glass swimming pool and more. Inside, 13 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 4 kitchens and 9 fireplaces blend period details with modern living. While, technically, the house actually sits on a peninsula, it feels like its own private island. Most remarkable of all, this picture of tranquility is located less than an hour outside of New York City. $18.95 million, 116 Premium Point; halstead.com

Attractive fixtures offer visual interest and much-needed light— important factors when selling a house. A statement-making piece, such as the Viaggio sconce by designer Sean Lavin (shown above), can immediately infuse a blank wall with a serving of style. Opal glass globes shine diffused light, which adds ambient illumination, subtly drawing attention to a room’s focal points without creating harsh shadows. circalighting.com

While technology brings people together online, it’s believed to have an isolating effect in real life. The solution: a proliferation of public social spaces so well-designed that residents will want to linger. “People are looking for a feeling of community, especially in hectic cities,” says New York-based architect Deborah Berke, whose project at 40 E. End Ave., features dramatic communal spaces. “The lounge area is glamorous, with high-quality materials and rich textures, so we hope people will use it for gatherings rather than just as a pass-through,” she says. “After all, amenity spaces don’t have to feel bland.” dberke.com

ON LOCATION WE ASKED FOUR REAL ESTATE PROS TO SHARE TALES OF THE TRADE FROM THEIR HOME BASES. SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA

Hot up-and-coming area right now: Neighboring sides of Paradise Valley and Arcadia are popular: They feature large ranch-style homes on bigger lots with tremendous views, and the location is ideal for growing families. Everyone wants to be near central Phoenix. What’s topping clients' wish lists? Great views and privacy: The Valley is a treasure spot for amazing mountain, city and sunset views. Since seclusion is a factor for many of our clients, the Valley’s gated communities offer peace of mind. There are also amenities, such as toprated golf courses, hiking and biking trails, boating and motorcycling fun. Frank Aazami, Sotheby’s; sothebyshomes.com

GOLD standard

For today’s buyers, no detail is too small for the stamp of personalization: Take this Connecticut kitchen, where designer Ingrid Becker installed a faucet at the island sink that also serves as an eye-catching feature. “The fixture is from Waterstone and the pull-down design is both beautiful and functional,” she says. “It makes a splash and complements the unlacquered brass hardware and Lacanche range, which will develop a pleasing patina over time.” deaneinc.com

LX_COM21_TheReport.indd 235

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA Older houses vs. new construction: Either—older or newer construction is secondary to the condition of the house. Buyers are hesitant to take on a renovation project in San Francisco, given the cost involved and the onerous process. What do buyers want? Integrated kitchens are in great demand. This is, of course, driven by the trend of the open-floor plan. We’re also seeing hydroponics for living gardens in the cooking area, so homeowners can grow their own herbs. Biggest selling factor? A house in move-in condition that feels fresh and new has enormous appeal. The kitchen is a huge factor, as is having a family room or gathering area. Most buyers consider these spaces the heart and soul of a home. Val Steele, Pacific Union; pacificunion.com

AUSTIN, TEXAS Most outrageous listing: A huge stucco home on more than 3 acres overlooking Lake Austin that was built in the 1960s and had been used as a place to gamble—such dignitaries as Lyndon B. Johnson were purported to have frequented the place. Where do buyers want to be? We are seeing action in several south Austin neighborhoods, such as Bouldin Creek and Travis Heights, and also in Northwest Hills. Those areas feature a lot of midcentury modern homes, which are all being easily updated. Top amenities clients request: Renovated kitchens with Carrara marble counters, open-floor plans, and master bathrooms with large walk-in closets and glass walk-in showers remain popular. Cindy Goldrick, Wilson & Goldrick Realtors; wilsongoldrick.com

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA What's the most eccentric house you’ve ever sold? It was a rare waterfront site with a dilapidated house, which included a swim-in/swim-out pool, complete with an almost cartoonish sculpture of a cherub and dolphin. Any noticeable trends: Palm Beach has about 2,500 singlefamily homes all of which are located in established neighborhoods. Each area has an individually compelling collective appeal. The median age in Palm Beach has been coming down year after year. It’s becoming the homestead of choice for many in the investment industry who are relocating. These buyers bring with them an appetite for a variety of architectural styles, which Palm Beach is well-positioned to accommodate. Suzanne Frisbie, Corcoran; frisbierealestate.com

Hot time of year to buy or sell: San Francisco can be cold and foggy in late summer, so the market slows down dramatically during this time, especially for properties with a view. Our busiest times tend to be spring and fall. What are the big in-demand design elements? People are requesting waterfall islands and white countertops for kitchens and baths, often made of quartz or other engineered material. ninahatvany.com

What is the craziest house you’ve ever sold? Once I sold a castle. The buyer went to a psychic, who told her that she was a princess in a former life and needed to live in a castle. Thankfully, my listing was the only castle available at the time. Most requested amenity: An open kitchen and family room is usually number one on most wish lists. Also, outdoor spaces where people can relax are always in-demand. gottesmanresidential.com

In a multiple bid situation, how do you get clients to stand out? It has become in vogue for buyers to write a letter to the seller. While it’s certainly a lovely gesture, time and again, price and good terms win. When should people put their houses on the market? The best time to sell is typically late spring before the buyers leave for summer vacation. Best time to buy is the opposite–when sellers worry about a slow market. luxuryportfolio.com

What’s topping clients’ wish lists? For all price points, gourmet kitchens and spa-like master bathrooms will never get old. I've also received more requests for large pantries and open shelving. Trending design elements: Super-wide-plank hardwood floors are becoming popular. I also see people moving away from a gray palette and going bold with black accents, from cabinetry to faucets and fixtures. summerlynneperry.com

How do you make an offer stand out? If I’m representing the buyer, I make sure it’s a clean deal free of complicated terms. Ideal time to buy or sell: Summer is the best time to buy; it’s historically our low season and sellers are more apt to sell at a better price. The best time to sell is during Art Basel, because you have a large pool of qualified buyers in town ready to purchase real estate and art. dorapuig.com

THE SPA TREATMENT As the emphasis on self-care impacts the design sector, wellness goes beyond having a sauna or steam room in your home; nowadays luxury clients are requesting yoga studios and meditation rooms. To that end, Danish designer Camilla Staerk and supermodel and photographer Helena Christensen have teamed up with Revolution, purveyors of limited edition, precrafted properties designed by some of the world’s most renowned architects and designers (past collaborators include Zaha Hadid, Marcel Wanders and Daniel Libeskind), to create their own Swallow Collection. Drawing on traditional Nordic architecture, Staerk and Christensen

LX_COM21_TheReport.indd 249

designed a series of four precrafted buildings, including a gym (shown above) and spa pavilion, that you can have constructed right on your property. “The Scandinavian countries have long been on the forefront of sustainable and timeless design, and are known for prioritizing quality of life,” says Staerk. “In recent years, the Danish word hygge has become known globally as the world becomes more focused on well-being.” Adds Christensen, “Hygge sums up a feeling of togetherness and calm, a specific use of space and a certain way of creating a cozy atmosphere, where culture and design aesthetic are integrated.” revolutionprecrafted.com

AITORO APPLIANCE Appliance options can seem endless, and even once a homeowner settles on a selection, the customizable features present a whole new series of challenging decisions. A desire to streamline this process is what drives the professionals at Aitoro Appliance, where a 12,000-square-foot showroom displays live kitchens that simulate the full experience. Since its opening in 1948, the company has maintained its philosophy: people come first. According to Tony Aitoro, the current president and CEO, this idea also informs the way one should approach kitchen design. “The kitchen has become the most popular room in the house for families, so make sure it’s a place where you are comfortable and happy,” he says. “Our main advice is to keep in mind the individual needs of your family, and your personal cooking behaviors. Also, be sure to get the right hood for your stove or cooktop—nothing is worse than a smoky kitchen!” Aitoro also recommends working with a kitchen designer, but says that if a homeowner decides to begin the process on their own, spatial details are paramount. “The first step is to understand the square footage you have to work with, both in total and in individual areas.”

Any new appliances the pros are loving? Custom-made column refrigerators are gaining popularity, because they provide a seamless appearance and can be built for individual needs. What’s your top must-have? Once the essentials are taken care of, an electric, indoor pizza oven is a great add-on. Monogram now offers a model that does not require ventilation. It’s the first of its kind.

AJ MADISON The professionals at AJ Madison call themselves “appliance matchmakers,” and when one steps foot in this 16,000-square-foot Brooklyn showroom, it appears as though they’ve nailed it. “We only sell appliances, and we take our commitment to be an authority on them seriously,” says Amy Chernoff, the company’s vice president of marketing. “We want every home and every family to possess the perfect appliances. You’ll live with them for 10-plus years, so it’s important for you to be thrilled upon purchase and beyond.” AJ Madison ensures this success by attending trade shows, and inviting brands like Thermador, Gaggenau and Bosch, to conduct in-depth trainings with its staff. This constant networking has another payoff too. “We often see new products up to a year in advance of release,” Chernoff says. Working with pros who have that level of insight is no small benefit when choosing expensive, meant-to-last items for the home. Chernoff shares one such insider peek: “Very soon, the big silver box that keeps food cold will be a distant memory, replaced by a food preservation unit that orders groceries the moment an item is depleted.”

AJ Madison’s expansive showroom displays luxury kitchens, while its staff offers personalized service, from blueprint to installation. 4. Thermador Masterpiece wall ovens offer steam, true convection and combination cooking modes. They can be placed horizontally or stacked vertically.

AJ MADISON: ‘THESE ARE THE MUST-HAVES’ 1

In the bathroom: “Do you love the idea of warm, toasty towels and robes? Place a warming drawer in the bathroom—it will do a far better job than a heated towel bar. Also consider adding a refrigerator drawer for beauty products, prosecco and more.”

MORE THAN A UTILITY “Ultimately, your kitchen can be an oasis for a thriving body and mind,” Chernoff says. “Most research on the subject comes to one conclusion: A key ingredient in a healthful life is time spent in the kitchen. Where else can you engage all of your senses?”

BRAND HIGHLIGHTS: POGGENPOHL + DOWNSVIEW

THE BREAKFAST ROOM, LTD.

“We are the only dealer of Poggenpohl and Downsview on Long Island, and these two brands are often what initially alleviates any concern a customer might have about quality,” Ypsilantis says. “They’ve also been environmentally friendly for decades, with factories that recycle almost all waste materials, and use adhesives and finishing agents that adhere to the strictest codes in Germany and Canada.”

When asked to identify kitchen trends, the team members at The Breakfast Room, Ltd. point to designs inspired by art—most recently Asian and African pieces—and smart technology. But they are quick to add: “At the same time, attention to detail, ceiling design, and balance and proportion are always present in our work. Fashion and trends can become dated, but good design is timeless.” Based in Manhasset, The Breakfast Room, Ltd. offers premier brands, and assists trade professionals in making the best selections for their kitchen designs. Owner Vasi Ypsilantis also heads her namesake design-build firm, Vasi Ypsilantis Design Associates, that provides a full range of services to homeowners. Having experienced countless projects from multiple angles, Ypsilantis offers sage advice for those embarking on a project. “Hire a professional, or more than one,” she says. “Then, take their advice and remember that while you should collaborate with your pros, it usually doesn’t help to involve irrelevant individuals. I’ve had clients ask the opinion of everyone from their neighbors to their UPS driver. For the most part, this just makes things confusing, chaotic and counterproductive. It should be about what you want.”

Tile and stone have quality levels, so knowing what product is good for what application is key.

With an eye toward the cutting-edge technology of the future while remaining loyal to the high standards of the past, Cancos Tile & Stone provides a rich and dynamic offering of porcelain, ceramic, glass and stone. Robert Valva, CEO of the family-run and -operated company, has kept Cancos Tile & Stone at the forefront of the industry by adapting to technological shifts and innovations. “Digital technology is still the most astounding innovation within our industry,” he shares. “Being able to replicate the finest marbles of the world, without any imperfection, is an amazing feat. To be able to create a durable porcelain floor that looks and feels like authentic, timeworn barn board is a gift. There are many new commercial applications that can be created.” Cancos Tile & Stone, with 12 designer showrooms and over 450 vignettes on display, is sufficiently equipped to help a broad range of clients. Valva offers this advice to those beginning a project. “Gather pictures of things that you like or specific items that you must have in your new project. Eventually, patterns and styles emerge, and a true professional can help you pull it all together,” he says. “Make sure at least one item in the room represents the true you. Be persistent in getting what you want, be patient and wait for that special item.”

Since 1961, the DEANE family has been creating custom spaces through thoughtful design and meticulous handcraftsmanship. Led today by principal Peter Deane, it maintains its dedication to delivering timeless, luxury design while embracing a company-wide passion for excellence and advancement in all ways. While it offers design and installation services for the whole home, DEANE is known for the room in which its journey began. “Kitchens are where we started,” Deane says. “We’ve expanded our offerings from those early roots, but we’ve never lost sight of why our name became synonymous with integrity and dependability. We honor our legacy through high-quality custom cabinetry, innovative and compelling interior design, and outstanding customer service.” The DEANE brand was first established in New York in 1961, and has continued to thrive in this forward-thinking and competitive market. But the company’s portfolio of work tells the story of its clients’ favorite vacation spots too. In addition to local endeavors in Connecticut, Westchester County and New York City, DEANE has recently delivered projects in Palm Beach, Kiawah Island, Stowe, the Hamptons, Newport and more.

MATERIAL TRENDS: WHAT’S REIGNING + RISING Hues: Blues and grays are often used as subtle contrasts with white cabinets. Woods: Black walnut continues to be popular, and driftwood finishes and rift oak in natural or gray tones are also big right now. Stones: Granite countertops are falling out of favor. Many homeowners are choosing marble for its timeless appeal and exquisite beauty. However, quartz is also gaining traction, because it’s harder than marble and easier to maintain.

GURRI DESIGN + REMODEL A project completed by Gurri Design + Remodel showcases the homeowner’s lifestyle, pleases the eye, and blends old-world excellence with revolutionary materials and technologies. All this combines with a full-service approach, bringing complex concepts through to their final build. It is no wonder New York’s residents frequently flock to this firm’s doors. Led by Sami Kelmendi, Gurri specializes in the renovation of what is arguably the home’s most intense design challenge: the kitchen. And according to Kelmendi, the tallest order has only gained stature, as this space has now become truly central. “The kitchen has replaced the living room as the focal gathering place of the home,” he says. “Cooking, dining, doing homework, entertaining, sharing the details of one’s day—it all happens in the kitchen.” He goes on to identify “socially sympathetic” appliances, which function in near-silence, as essential to this new way of using the kitchen. In the search for such appliances, Kelmendi recommends utilizing Quiet Mark, a program that certifies brands and products based on their level of noise reduction.

NEW HISTORY IN AN OLD SPACE Kelmendi and his team recently remodeled the kitchen of a 1910 brownstone in Harlem. The homeowners were cooking enthusiasts, and worked closely with Gurri to establish their desires for workflow, family gatherings and entertaining within the space.

HOMEOWNERS, TAKE NOTE: GURRI OFFERS WISDOM + When undertaking a kitchen gut remodel, always start by using new plumbing rough-in, and install proper floor waterproofing. + Explore all options, and be practical in your choices. Many people love wood, but MDF (medium-density fiberboard) is able to expand and contract, so it doesn’t warp or crack. This makes it the better choice for cabinetry.

HG STONES

FOR THOSE BEGINNING A PROJECT … First, create a mood board to understand your vision,” Reddy advises. “Gather ideas from social media, and then, discuss your lifestyle and expectations for a space with a design professional. They will be able to provide you with a better understanding of how different options can be used to create the kitchen or bathroom desired.”

In 2018, advancements in processing are making exotic colors and thinner stones possible, and terrazzo textures are reemerging. These are the trends Babu Reddy, the founder and chairman of HG Stones, identifies as defining the high-end surface industry. “There is a constant spirit of innovation in the design and architecture community, and natural and high-performance manufactured stone follows suit,” he says. “By partnering with quarries around the world, HG Stones has spent the past 25 years bringing solutions, product knowledge and aesthetic inspiration to our clients.” The company owns and operates blockyards, factories and distribution centers. Throughout these locations, experienced geologists, quarry masters and quality inspectors ensure superior-grade slabs and tiles. As for how the end user should go about finding the right product among this well-vetted variety, Reddy recommends keeping consistency in mind. “Style can work both ways, but in the selection of materials, finishes and textures, it’s important to have a theme.”

We expect a considerable shift toward man-made materials, driven by consumer preference and lifestyle changes.

KURRENT KITCHEN + BATH

I’m inspired by all of the small brands that are breaking every design rule and creating masterpieces.

When a New Yorker goes in search of materials and ideas for the home, Brooklyn is sure to be one of their first stops. Known for a creative, craftsmen-centric design community that blends new and old to stunning effect, the borough exudes the spirit of both innovation and timehonored technique. Enter, Kurrent Kitchen + Bath, where both trending items and exclusive imports abound. Jack Bernstein, the founder of this high-end showroom, strives to bring cutting-edge solutions to the two rooms in which a demanding list of needs often elbows aesthetics out of the picture. In kitchens and bathrooms designed with the help of Kurrent, the staples are still there, but they often feature an inventive solution. “Personally, I love niches that are tiled into the bath, making the storage of soaps and other items seamless,” Bernstein says. In the quest to bring forward-thinking ideas to homeowners and trade professionals alike, the Kurrent team is imbuing its whole process with advanced systems, including virtual reality programs and an app where customers can browse and ask questions.

+ Contemporary, European styles and clean lines + Transitional interiors in prewar buildings + Shaker-style looks, with a modern twist + Gray cabinets, whether lacquered, cerused or painted + Chevron-patterned tile or wood floors

When one thinks of residential design in New York City, access to a world-class pool of resources and a fascinating clientele likely come to mind. But so do space constraints, and in the kitchen and bath, where function is key, these amount to a massive challenge. That’s where Paula McDonald and her team, at Paula McDonald Design Build & Interiors, come in. With structural design, contracting and interior services, the firm provides the full range of skills needed for a renovation, simplifying a highly complicated endeavor. “We offer a holistic approach; a vertically integrated process from concept to completion,” Paula McDonald says. “I manage each project as if it is my own home, and I’m passionate about finding solutions and creating a personality within each space.” But as she builds character, Paula McDonald also emphasizes cohesiveness. “I think it is critical,” she says. “Texture, material selections and color create the artistic palette of the overall design, but the style is what defines the space and how it feels. Each environment should have a large impact but remain related to the home’s overall aesthetic. It should flow.”

But today, the East End is increasingly hailed as a year-round destination. In the fall, lively events, a focus on local industry and a warm atmosphere define the community.

Pumpkin picking, vineyard visits, strolls through apple orchards and mornings at the farmer’s market—it’s all a part of the Hamptons in the fall. To hear Gary Ciuffo of Ciuffo Cabinetry tell it, this off-season is about taking a step back and enjoying the East End without its bustling summer crowds. But even as the population winds down, the residential design work stays steady, bolstered by year-round residents and those who are looking to prep vacation homes for the holidays. A fixture throughout New York since 1907, Ciuffo Cabinetry has recently expanded to include a full showroom in Southampton, through which it continues its mission to give clients the ultimate experience in luxury millwork. “We use high-quality products, and combine old-world techniques with modern technology,” Ciuffo says. “The finished product should be a lasting source of joy.”

A FALL SATURDAY IN THE HAMPTONS

“We begin by arriving at our East Hampton home, and then it becomes culinary,” Ciuffo says. “Whether preparing, cooking, eating, drinking or just relaxing outside, the opportunity to be with family and friends who love good food is amazing. I also enjoy having guest chefs, as it’s a chance to experience new recipes and foods.”

James Merrell Architects, P.C. 66 Main Street, Sag Harbor, New York 631.725.9842 | jamesmerrellarchitects.com

According to James Merrell, the Hamptons has been a laboratory for architectural experimentation for more than a century, and this promise of invention is what initially attracted him to the area. That was in 1988, when James Merrell Architects, P.C. was founded. Since then, the firm has designed unique and highly personalized houses for a discerning clientele, won a variety of awards and watched many of its creations become family heirlooms. But as these homes stand the test of time, the Hamptons itself is in the midst of change. “It is mostly built out by now, so we see a lot of new builds in old neighborhoods,” Merrell says. “As the baby boomers retire, the year-round population will increase and the architecture will become more complex and interesting, because minimal styles aren’t as suited to full-time occupation.”

AUTUMN: THE MUSE

While industry pros spend spring racing to the finish before high season, Merrell points to fall as his favorite stage of the year for design. “The best client meetings all take place during this season,” he says. “They leave the city behind for a day and become instantly more reflective. The fall air here is sweet and clear— perfect for the kind of thought great design requires.” Merrell closes by remarking that fall in the Hamptons must be beloved by fine painters, too.

THE HIGH LIFE A MANHATTAN PENTHOUSE OFFERS A YOUNG FAMILY PLENTY OF LIGHT AND SPACE, AND GARDENS TO BOOT. WRITTEN BY MAILE PINGEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY ANNIE SCHLECHTER

W

e like to say it had everything but great bones,” interior designer Jenny Vorhoff says of the duplex penthouse she recently designed for a Manhattan couple with young children. Over the course of about two-and-a-half years, Vorhoff and architect Anik Pearson reshaped the entire unit into a modern, familyfriendly showstopper worthy of its Fifth Avenue perch. Having previously collaborated on the couple’s rental apartments as well as their house in the Hamptons, Vorhoff and Pearson were in sync from the start. “The clients wanted a one-of-a-kind space but nothing too formal,” Vorhoff recalls, noting they also wanted to better link the interiors with the wraparound terraces that offer views of Central Park and the East River. “They had a clear vision of what they wanted: more light and a kitchen that could be closed off while entertaining.” The 1925 George Frederick Pelham design is a typical prewar-style building, but the penthouse had already been stripped of original details, freeing the team to approach it as a clean slate. “As with so many buildings of the period, maids’ quarters were on the roofs, hidden behind large cornices,” Pearson explains. But as the Great Depression set in, live-in staffs became less common, and buildings adapted to changing lifestyles. Pelham returned just a few years after completion to remove a portion of the elaborate cornice, carving out new luxury residential opportunities with views of Central Park. “One by one, the roofs of the buildings on Fifth Avenue were transformed into highly desirable real estate,” Pearson says.

Essentially starting from scratch some 14 floors up, Pearson and Vorhoff, with the help of builder Mark Dobbin, began to break apart the existing architecture. “We installed new steel structures to create vast expanses of glass and open-concept spaces as well as new doors and windows throughout,” Dobbin explains. “This project was one of intricacies and demanded a keen eye for details, mechanical integration and forward planning.” It also required Vorhoff and Pearson to balance the openness of the modern floor plan with materials and furnishings that defined the spaces while allowing for a seamless visual flow. “We responded with clean lines enhanced by the warmth of natural materials,” Pearson says, highlighting the use of oak, chestnut, teak and olive woods for their beautiful grains. In the family room, for example, they devised a bookmatched floor-to-ceiling chestnut veneer that was installed as large panels trimmed with metal edging, much like an upholstered wall. And while the team initially considered marble and onyx for feature walls, ultimately they opted

LX_NY37_HOM_Vorhoff_12.indd 290

for lively quartzite. In the stair hall they used Burlesque, a sparkling white that resembles a waterfall. Maya, spectacularly veined with aubergine, chocolate, olive, lilac and ochre, was chosen for the living room. And in the master bathroom, Azul Macauba “looks like an aquatic landscape,” Pearson describes. With the surfaces finalized, attention turned to the decor. “We worked with a lot of designers and artists to create custom pieces,” Vorhoff says, explaining that vintage furnishings weren’t a comfortable option for her clients, who are quite tall. “We wanted the rooms to feel ‘collected,’ even though we weren’t using antiques. It’s not mixing period pieces, but it’s still mixing pieces.” And while she kept largely to solid textiles for the upholstered furnishings, she went for artful rugs, like the Bauhaus-inspired design in the entryway and the living room’s raised-silk wave pattern. Another key consideration was the couple’s art collection, developed with consultant Erica Samuels of Samuels Creative & Co. Works include Jeppe Hein’s neon text You Make Me

Creating the terraces was a collaboration among Pearson, Vorhoff, Town & Gardens and Holly, Wood + Vine. Plantings, which include lavender, guara and Japanese maples, were designed to be soft, colorful and informal. The round tables are Dedon, and Perennials fabrics were used throughout the exterior spaces.

Wonder, placed in the stairwell below Dashiell Manley’s newspaper painting Financial Times, Tuesday 19 April 2016. “The collection is minimalist, yet each work embodies the artists’ deeper conceptual practices and processes,” Vorhoff says. “Together, the works function as a whole, dealing largely with the slippage between analog and digital technology.” The pieces add to the collective vibe of the home. “There are so many layers here,” Vorhoff says. “Each room is a different experience, but the architecture ties it all together.” The team worked with landscape designer Robert Mundell to ensure this holistic feel continued outside to the garden on the patio. “Based on the interior sight lines through the windows, we chose specimen trees and interesting combinations of plantings to complement the amazing skyline,” he says. “It’s definitely a reflection of the family, with several different ‘rooms’—like the bedroom terrace with its pergola and seating nook and the dining and living room terraces complete with an exterior television.” Sculptural furnishings and a palette of greens, blues and purples plays on Vorhoff’s interiors and further enhance the synergy. “The clients were committed to doing something unique and doing it well,” Vorhoff says of the project. “And they pushed me in the process.” She’s quick to note this reflects a trend. “People are less afraid of making personal choices now,” she says. “They’re coming back to the whole point of hiring a designer—to elevate their homes.”

iriam Ellner always intended to be an artist, but her plan had nothing to do with the world of design in which she is now immersed. Rather, Ellner trained as a modern dancer and started dancing professionally in New York at age 19. Eventually, she found herself—as many do—sidelined due to age and injury, but what may have seemed like a disappointing turn of events was actually the beginning of another flourishing creative career. Ellner had always helped design costumes and sets for her dance company, so it was only natural that she pursue a path in the fine arts. After studying at a distinguished atelier in Brussels, she returned to New York City

to start her own business doing architectural gilding and decorative painting. By chance, she encountered the medium of verre eglomisé— the application of gilding and decorative design to the reverse side of glass—and instantly realized she had “found her bliss.” After several years of exploration and experimentation, she became known for this specialized skill that combines a traditional art form—the technique dates back to Italy in 200 B.C.—with contemporary applications. “The beauty of it is that gold is incredibly flexible, so basically what I have is this expensive piece of paper,” Ellner explains. Her varied materials—pigments she refers to as her “magic stuff”—range from 22-karat gold leaf to moon gold, palladium leaf, red gold and

crushed abalone. She also makes her own hardwood styluses for etching into the gold using a process that resembles shading with a pencil. Other techniques in her creative arsenal include airbrushing, oil- and water-gilding, and working with laminated glass to impart a threedimensionality to her pieces. A self-professed bookworm, Ellner says much of her inspiration comes from the tomes in her Chelsea studio and her home library, but it’s also derived from things she sees in daily life. “I’m kind of an image collector,” she says. “I travel and go to museums, but really I’m just a visual person, so anything that catches my eye sparks me.” Ellner’s work adorns everything from tables, mirrors and screens to ceilings, wall panels, murals and even yacht interiors for high-profile

clients including Chanel and the Mandarin Oriental in London. “I have an insatiable curiosity,” she says. “It’s such a beautiful, elemental kind of medium and it really speaks to me. And I love nothing more than when a designer comes in with a totally new idea and it’s something I’ve never done before.” One of her current projects is a 12-foot installation for a powder room, featuring intricate chinoiserie, while another design is imbued with sunflowers and pampas grasses. In fact, wander around her airy 12th-floor studio (which has an enviable bird’s-eye view of the High Line) and you’ll see myriad artistic influences—Art Deco, Cubism and Egyptian, to name a few. But there’s one thing all Ellner’s works have in common: The end result is undeniably glamorous.

COUNTRY CHIC EQUAL PARTS RUSTIC, ELEGANT AND ECLECTIC, A MODERN FARMHOUSE IN CHAPPAQUA HITS ALL THE RIGHT NOTES. WRITTEN BY TATE GUNNERSON / PHOTOGRAPHY BY GEORGE ROSS

hange is good, as the saying goes. That’s exactly how a couple with two young children viewed their move from a hip Brooklyn neighborhood to a forested 2-acre lot in Chappaqua. The early-aughts Colonial they purchased included a guesthouse and a swimming pool. But the husband and wife—he works in finance, she’s a stay-at-home mom—saw no reason to completely abandon the style of their Williamsburg loft with exposed beams. “They wanted their new home to feel more like a bohemian farmhouse,” explains designer Amy Hirsch, whom the couple commissioned, along with architect Jimmy Crisp, to reimagine their new home. The team approached the project by planning a new layout. “It was a lot of pushing things around and improving the flow,” Crisp says. “The house needed updating and some design sense.” To open up the dining room, the doorways on both sides were widened, and a nearby hallway was eliminated. In the front foyer, a new stairway with a blackened-steel railing and squared-off treads cuts a more modern profile than the traditional one with rounded wooden spindles it replaced. Reminiscent of the couple’s previous abode, salvaged wood and reclaimed beams were installed throughout the interior, including wood planks on the dining room ceiling. Glass pendants suspended from varying heights over the dining table add an unexpected touch of whimsy, and a grass-cloth wallcovering with a watery lavender gradient introduces color and pattern in an understated way. “It’s very artistic and light, but it has a density because of the grass cloth,” Hirsch says. “There’s a balance between the ceiling and the walls.”

“HOW DO YOU CONNECT THE DOTS? YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS CONSTANT LANGUAGE, A CONTINUAL THREAD THROUGHOUT.” –AMY HIRSCH

LX_NY37_HOM_Hirsch_12.indd 308

Wooden ceiling beams also add character to the kitchen, where crisp white Shaker-style cabinetry, white quartz countertops and a large island with additional seating evoke the classic aesthetic the owners requested. And although the porcelain-and-concrete backsplash tile was a leap for the owners, they are thrilled they heeded Hirsch’s advice to go a bit bolder. “She pushed us a little outside of our comfort level,” the wife admits, “and that made something ho-hum into something beautiful.” Bronze—in the form of cabinet hardware and lighting, including oversize island pendants with milk-glass globes and a large lantern-style chandelier over the breakfast table—also makes a strong statement. “How do you connect the dots?” Hirsch asks. “You have to have this constant language, a continual thread throughout.” Playing on a common factor throughout the residence, the beams continue into the adjacent family room, this time placed vertically on both sides of the new floor-to-ceiling concrete fireplace, which has been stamped so it appears to be board-formed. A graphic blue rug with a white geometric design adds a pop of color and defines a comfortable seating area furnished with a plush, neutral-toned sofa. More blue tones can be found in the living room’s antique silk carpet, which Hirsch layered atop a large braidedjute rug. Rustic lamps, Asian pieces and modern furnishings covered in crisp white fabrics create the eclectic boho feeling the designer and clients imagined early in the project. Although the homeowners bring a new style to the house, some of the most significant changes are also the subtlest, builder Joe Pisoni points out. To eliminate bounce and squeaks, for instance, he reframed the floor system and installed new wide-plank oak beams. Just as importantly, insulation was added to every wall—interior and exterior— and between the first and second floors. “It’s a much quieter place,” he says. Serenity is a hallmark of the master bedroom, where a light-colored wallcovering with a textured horizontal stripe illustrates the power of pattern, however subdued, to transform a space. “Bedrooms should be a retreat,” Hirsch says. “This one is very clean and comforting, and there’s no massive stimulation.” Texture plays a key role: The tailored bed is covered in bouclé with moss-colored trim, and the Lucite bench at the foot of the bed has a hidecovered seat. There are also embroidered-linen draperies, layered rugs and a casual upholstered lounge chair. The owners are overjoyed with their modern farmhouse. “It checks all the boxes,” the wife says, noting it’s also become a beacon of sorts for their harried city friends seeking a summer escape. “It’s a larger house, but it feels cozy,” the husband adds. “Sometimes I can’t believe we live here.”

A

t the venerable San Remo, the 1930 twintowered masterpiece by architect Emery Roth on Central Park West, one may not expect to find such an airy, colorful and contemporary apartment as the one designer Erica Millar created in collaboration with her husband, architect Russell Riccardi. But that’s exactly what was in order for a young, fun, professional couple whose museum-worthy art collection comingles with three children under the age of 8. For this family, brocades and traditional antiques—not to mention the prewar layouts of these two adjoined units—felt decidedly last century. Millar and Riccardi reimagined the 6,000-square-foot space into a more open, cohesive and youthful design, while keeping traditional elements, such as moldings, to celebrate the San Remo’s historic elegance. “The goal was to accommodate, first and foremost, the family life,” says Millar. “The second objective was the ability to have space to display art and entertain.” The owners interviewed a number of designers to take on the project, says the wife, “but Millar understood exactly what we were trying to accomplish: beautiful rooms that aren’t overdone.” Their previous home, the wife says, though lovely, “felt ‘older.’ We wanted a stranger to be able to walk into our apartment and know immediately that a young couple was residing there.” They also wanted the design to be sophisticated enough for entertaining friends, but comfortable and livable for family—nothing off-limits to children. First Riccardi, who worked with his project manager Aaron Follett, as well as Dinyar Wadia of Wadia Associates as the architect of record and general contractors Doug Carpenter and Rob Carpenter, reengineered the design to create a better flow. His challenge was to unify the residence, as the previous owners had extensively renovated the primary apartment before buying the second unit. “It took some conjuring to make it integral,” he says. That meant making the entry hall, which leads to a spacious gallery, more symmetrical, and creating entrances to the facing library and living room that were as wide and as tall as possible. Riccardi also opened up

LX_NY37_NATpickup_HOM_Millar_12.indd 320

the hall to the children’s wing—visible from the gallery—for improved circulation and visual connection. The kitchen expanded to include a family area, and the dining room is visible across the hall through a wall of glass doors. Notes Millar, “An important part of what Russell did was both contemporary and sympathetic to the building. It wasn’t about opening spaces to look like a wide-open loft, but to keep the rhythm of the classical bones.” Though the updates to the layout are more contemporary, the addition of paneling and moldings brought a traditional sense of polish that Riccardi says honor the exquisite lobby of the San Remo and connect the private space to the public. “The original apartments didn’t have this extent of detail,” says the architect. “We took it to a new level.” Painted in monochromatic schemes—ink-blue in the study, off-white in the living room—the trim recedes as a complementary framework to the art and furnishings. During the renovation, Millar devised a plan for the interiors, taking cues for palette and sensibility from the art, which includes works by Gerhard Richter, Yayoi Kusama, Jenny Holzer and Cecily Brown, among others. In the entry gallery, for example, Damien Hirst’s large, round, blue butterfly painting Blue Velvet introduces the rich inky tones of the study, a shade that carries over onto the velvet upholstery of the living room sofa. “The theme that continues through nearly every piece of their artwork is nature,” says the designer, citing the butterflies and the 15-foot-long Thomas Demand photograph of cherry blossoms in the dining room. “It all has an organic concept, which echoes the views of the park, as well,” she says. The residents’ love of art, plus their appreciation for organic elements, provided Millar with the unusual opportunity to bring in artisans and craftsmen for truly bespoke interiors. The dining room boasts a dimensional ribbed-plaster wall, hand-troweled with a pale-pink wax finish done by Uriu Nuance. In the master bedroom, where warm tones of beige shimmer in luxurious textures of shearling and silk, walls featuring horizontal striations were hand-painted on-site. The master suite’s dressing room displays églomisé panels by Miriam Ellner. Millar even commissioned the London artist Valéria Nascimento—wellknown for her porcelain installations—to create delicate porcelain flowers that affix to a large custom storage cabinet in the family room, continuing the nature theme. Millar ordered extras—just in case. “The tumbling child or errant ball has knocked a few down,” she says. After all, one of the goals was that no area should be too precious. Says the wife, “Last month, we hosted a formal cocktail party for a non-profit, a relaxed dinner party for friends, and our 6-year-old’s Barbie-themed birthday party. They all worked!” They also host an annual Thanksgiving Day Parade celebration, which the husband says is a highlight of the year. “I especially enjoy seeing the floats pass by at eye-level,” he says. “It’s such a fun experience for our kids and our friends.”

Polished Marble World countertops bounce light into the space, while the pendants, above the Powell & Bonnell bar chairs, are from Siemon & Salazar. Flooring throughout is from The New Wood Company. Below: A scalloped plaster wall, the branch-like Jeff Zimmerman lighting from R & Company, and Thomas Demand’s Bloom, reflected in the mirror, carry organic influences into the dining room.

In the master bedroom, a beige shearling chair and ruched-leather ottoman, both by Kelly Wearstler, offer a luxurious respite. Also bringing tactile interest are the Sung Hee Cho artwork from Tambaran gallery, the custom gypsum-and-elm cabinet, and wall-towall, wool-and-silk carpet by Doris Leslie Blau.

Even the master bedroom walls feature a hand-finished organic sensibility, painted on-site in a linear design by Callidus Guild, artisans represented by Jean de Merry. Light neutrals complement the lush green park views for a serene space, as evidenced by the Roman Thomas bed, the custom bleached-parchment nightstands and the Kelly Wearstler lighting.
