EDITOR’S LETTER

Clockwise from top left: M64 Pendant by Miguel Milá for Santa & Cole; a vignette from The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style by Stephanie Mark and Jake Rosenberg; vintage Cartier necklace; Navata fabric by Fortuny; and Petri vase by Elyse Graham.

What should your home give to you? In its purest form, it should impart beauty, honesty, delight, imperfection, and, perhaps, even a little wit or amusement. The environment that you create is essentially an extension of what you value and love, a reflection of your aesthetic sensibility. It’s something that ebbs and evolves over time yet (hopefully!) always feels authentic and true. It seems reasonable then that the space in which you live should be treated as a little haven in this world—a dwelling that makes the everyday seem that much more beautiful. This issue is largely dedicated to examining the concept of luxury, and our team connected with many artisans and designers who weighed in on the subject. It’s telling that a common thread runs through that collective dialogue: “Each piece has a story to tell.” “Collect things you love and want to have forever.” “The most luxurious of materials are also often the simplest.” “Home is sacred, and the items around us often have an emotional effect, so it is important to put a great deal of care into deciding what you allow into your space.” Wherever you reside, make home your greatest luxury.

WHAT DOES THE ART OF INSPIRATION MEAN TO YOUR BRAND? Inspiration lies at the very core of Vinotempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culture. India Hynes, like her father before her, has traveled the world in search of new ideas and inspiration, as well as new technologies and industry trends.

WHAT ARE THE ORIGINS OF YOUR FIRM? Vinotemp is a 30-year-old family business. Founder Francis Ravel was born in Casablanca, French Morocco, fought with the French Foreign Legion and landed in Hollywood as a leading man. After a lengthy movie career, Ravel found his passion of making and selling his own wine. This simple turn of fate led to the need to store his collection.

DESCRIBE THE CRAFTSMANSHIP BEHIND YOUR BRAND. Vinotempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loyal workforce is bound together by a single thought: to create a product that will last for generations.

memo LISA LOVELY PUBLISHER

September has arrived at Luxe Interiors + Design, and it’s the beginning of the design industry’s exciting fall season! We ended summer with a number of fantastic events with our wonderful industry partners. First, we were honored to be part of the ICAA Northern California Chapter’s Julia Morgan Awards ceremony, held at the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. We would like to thank the ICAA and Suzanne Tucker for an incredible night as well as their kind invitation to be included as one of the media sponsors for this prestigious event. I also want to give thanks to Milgard Windows & Doors for hosting such a wonderful, interactive evening in Burlingame, with many design professionals attending from both the San Francisco Peninsula and the city. They were such gracious hosts, and we loved being part of the evening. Lastly, we want to show appreciation to Gregg Lynn of Sotheby’s International Realty for his continued support of Luxe. Stay tuned for an action-packed fall season, and I hope you enjoy the issue!

CONTRIBUTORS

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

ALANNA HALE

Photographer / San Francisco

TATE GUNNERSON Writer / Chicago

Memorable Luxe interview: While every single interview is fascinating in its own way, my conversation with the multifaceted Eric J. Nordstrom of Urban Remains in Chicago stands out. He left behind a career in scientific research to pursue his passion for history, architecture and salvage and has since amassed a significant collection of pieces. Is there a particular writer whose work has had an influence on you? Although I have an enduring appreciation for urban life and design of all kinds, Henry David Thoreau’s emphasis on nature and simplicity resonates with me more and more as the years go by. Who is the most interesting person you’ve ever met? Artist and potter Alessio Tasca. For decades, he created incredible pieces out of his rustic studio in the countryside just outside of Vicenza, Italy. What a life he’s lived! If I weren’t a writer, I would… Run a small bed-and-breakfast that would consist of stylish tiny homes, yurts and tree houses on a peaceful lake in the country. I’d also love to make a documentary at some point.

KARYN MILLET Photographer / Los Angeles My biggest creative influences come from… My travels. From Cuba to the Cotswolds in England, this year has been full of visual inspiration for design, color, light, composition and mood. I’m forever planning my next trip. Whose work has impacted you the most? My great-great-uncle, Francis Davis Millet. He was a famous artist who made me realize that art can be a career if you set your mind to it. He was last seen helping women and children into lifeboats off the Titanic, where he perished. What type of design inspires you? I love traditional with a twist. With architecture, I’m a big fan of the classics—Federal, Cape Cod and Spanish. I’m also intrigued by unexpected colors and fresh designs in interiors.

MINDY PANTIEL Writer / Colorado What do you find most enjoyable about the design industry? I like the ongoing integration of the art world into interior design. And I don’t mean finding art to match a sofa, but rather designers recognizing that allowing art to make its own statement only enhances and elevates a home’s interiors. Favorite element of design: Architecture. I am forever in awe of a great architect’s ability to shape a building and create spaces that are not only livable but also have a context. As a consequence, I like furnishings and accessories that make strong architectural statements. Most memorable Luxe interview: I spoke with a homeowner who shared that her husband had fallen in love with an enormous boulder weighing several tons on their property. So, as a birthday present, the wife arranged for a crane to move it near the front door so he could see it every day. The architecture and design of the house were already wonderful, but this was a reminder that the best stories (and homes) involve this kind of personal touch.

What is the best career advice you’ve received? “You don’t have to like it, but you should be proud of it.” It’s a way of saying that the path or experience isn’t always easy or fun, but it’s worth the fight to create great work in the end. And, while that uncomfortable place may sometimes be unpleasant, it’s also necessary. Role models: Stephen Shipps and Maria Koundoura, professors at Emerson College in Boston. They are both passionate, brilliant, patient and kind. Favorite Luxe shoot: Blacksmith Daniel Hopper was so much fun to work with, but with their humor and charm, Neil and Alix Curry of The Willow Farm are pretty hard to beat. Top three things on your design wish list: I would love to purchase a Hans Wegner Peacock chair, install flamingo wallpaper in my bathroom, and own a vintage caramel-colored Chesterfield sofa.

LUXURY in the DETAILS A LOOK AT LUXURY WITH HANDS-ON CREATIVES WHO ARE POWERING THE GROWING MAKERS-MATTER REVOLUTION. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

Luxury has a million different meanings and permutations, a concept as unique as a fingerprint to each individual person: a warm cup of coffee on a chilly, overcast morning; the cool thrill of slipping into a freshly made bed with silk sheets; a day off with no obligations or competition for the television remote. One thing these definitions, and the countless others weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard while working on this issue, have in common, though, is that they all actively engage the senses. The greatest luxuries then are the things that inspire joy by the way they look, feel, smell, sound or tasteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;many of which exist inside the home and have transcended their supporting roles in everyday life (think a bench, a sconce, a pillow) to take center stage due to the attention their makers have given to their creations. On the following pages, we talk to the artists, designers and craftspeople responsible for both breaking and making the mold and for ensuring even the smallest details feel like priceless treasures.

RADAR / COMMENTARY

“I don’t like trendy design; although, it’s essential to keep up with changing styles. When I design textiles, I like to create things that are timeless and can work in various styles of homes—things that can be appreciated decade after decade.” –MILI SULEMAN, KUFRILIFEFABRICS.COM

“Don’t bring it home unless you plan on living with it indefinitely. There’s so much disposability in consumer culture. Instead, collect things you love and want to have forever. Search for things that retain their value even when they’re well-used, worn or patinated.” –CODY HOYT, CODYHOYT.COM

I LOVE WORKING WITH WOOD. IT HAS SO MUCH CHARACTER ; EACH PIECE HAS A STORY TO TELL AND FEELS ALIVE TO ME. A LOT OF TIMES I EVEN SPECIFICALLY LOOK FOR SLABS WITH IMPERFECTIONS, WHICH WE THEN PATCH UP IN UNIQUE WAYS.” –FLORIAN ROEPER, STUDIOROEPER.COM

Clockwise from top right: Elyse Graham’s Petri vase; Pamela Sunday’s Sprocket sculpture; and Cody Hoyt’s Oblique vessel.

“The value in a handcrafted piece is the human connection. The digital age has made our world smaller and brought us together but left us longing for direct personal contact. I think there is an inherent comfort in owning a piece, which is made by hand, that addresses that void.” –ELYSE GRAHAM, ELYSEGRAHAM.COM

“Luxury is beauty and comfort combined. I have come to love a Martin Margiela smock that is threadbare from years of wear. My husband purchased it more than 20 years ago. When I put it on, I feel more like myself.” –PAMELA SUNDAY, PAMELASUNDAY.COM

“I am blown away by the work of artist Daniel Brush. His level of commitment, his total focus, his rabid attention to detail and his blend of the intellectual and the physical are just so impressive. I find myself on the verge of almost giving up when I see his work.” –VICTORIA REYNOLDS, TUELLREYNOLDS.COM

RADAR / COMMENTARY

“I’m continually impressed by how much a beautiful cup, the right bowl, a wellmade rug, a crafted table or an inspiring piece of art can move me. I never imagined the profound pleasure that someone else’s creativity could bring me each day.”

THE MOST LUXURIOUS OF MATERIALS ARE ALSO OFTEN THE SIMPLEST, WHETHER IT’S CLAY, WOOD, STONE OR NATURAL FIBERS. WOOD, IN PARTICULAR, IS SACRED TO OUR SURVIVAL, WITH TREES THEMSELVES OFTEN SERVING AS MARKERS OF THE PASSING OF TIME.”

–RUTH FRANCES GREENBERG, RUTHFRANCESGREENBERG.COM

“We’re compelled to create by nature; it’s a Zen state that’s hard to match and innate in all of us. I aim to make modern heirlooms and do work that is meant to be handled and not put on a pedestal. I often wonder where my pieces end up living and hope that they’re being passed down generationally as cherished objects.”

“We love the thought that our pieces could be passed down through generations. We put a lot of effort into creating solid, wellconstructed objects. We also use the best materials that we feel are correct for each individual design and are compelled to make each piece as good as it can be.” –JAMEY GARZA, GARZAMARFA.COM

–TUCKER ROBBINS, TUCKERROBBINS.COM

“The ethos of handcrafted work is incomparable to that of mass-market products. Our work comes from a place of deliberation over design, aesthetic, structure, form and function. Each piece is handmade to order, so we know for whom and for what space we’re making it.” –DAVID WEEKS, DAVIDWEEKSSTUDIO.COM

RADAR / COMMENTARY

“Every painting is a struggle between what you want it to be and what the painting wants to be. Most of the time, painting is wrestling, but every once in a while, something unexpected happens— something beyond what I’ve planned or intended.” –STELLA MARIA BAER, STELLAMARIABAER.COM

“Luxuries, to me, are things that create ‘wow’ moments in our days—like when you sink into a down sofa and have no desire to be anywhere else or when you experience the pleasure of running your hands across the top of a table made from an exquisite, oneof-a-kind piece of wood that’s been skillfully finished to perfection.” –CATALINA ECHAVARRIA, CEUSTUDIO.COM

From top: The Pivot chandelier by Brendan Ravenhill; CEU Studio’s handwoven Reed bed.

MY PROCESS IS NOT LUXURIOUS AT ALL. THERE HAS BEEN BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS THAT HAVE GONE INTO MANY OF THE THINGS THAT I HAVE CREATED—A LOT OF BAD BEFORE YOU GET TO THE GOOD—BUT I CAN’T IMAGINE NOT DOING IT. THE PROCESS BRINGS ME SO MUCH JOY.” –MEGAN ADAMS BROOKS, MEGANADAMSBROOKS.COM

“If you’re going to splurge on anything, let it be lighting— it has the greatest ability to transform a space. No matter how nice the objects in a particular room are, if the lighting’s not right, you’re not going to spend as much time there. Beyond how it looks, too, be sure to examine what kind of light it casts.” –BRENDAN RAVENHILL, BRENDANRAVENHILL.COM

“When creating something that people will one day bring into their homes, I always try to subscribe to Shaker design philosophy: Don’t make something unless it is necessary and useful. But if it is both necessary and useful, don’t forget to make it beautiful.” –SEEMA KRISH, SEEMAKRISH.COM

“We absolutely keep the idea of collecting in mind when making things. We want to create pieces that can be preserved and last for multiple generations. We try to make art that is immersive and made by multiple artists, and we like the fact that furniture and usable art can be hard to swallow as an art form.” –NANA SPEARS, FORTMAKERS.COM

RADAR / BEHIND THE BRAND

Everything Is Illuminated DESIGNER JONATHAN BROWNING USES HIS PASSION FOR HISTORY AND AGELESS STYLE TO CREATE LIGHTING THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME. WRITTEN BY SHANNON SHARPE PORTRAIT BY ALANNA HALE

Change in approach: When I first started, I was doing everything by hand, but I quickly discovered that my designs would have to be made in a foundry because they were too complex. I only work with the best of the best: Cirecast. Material matters: For the first seven years, we used cast bronze almost exclusively, but as our

SCONCE PHOTO: GRANT PETERSON.

When Jonathan Browning founded his eponymous company in 2003, he was positive of one thing: He was going to make the best lighting in the industry. “I wanted to create pieces that would outlast the people that bought them,” he says. Through designing each item by hand, using the best quality materials and producers, and taking a new approach to old ideas, Browning has proven that being the best isn’t about labels, but about commitment. In his latest offering, the Montalembert sconce, the designer shows us thoughtfulness once again with a machined-byhand lamp with a hand-polished solid-brass base and a hand-carved and polished lead-crystal shade. “Luxury is about authenticity,” says Browning. “It is about respecting your materials and deferring to what your design is trying to say and do. It’s about doing the right thing over the easy thing.”

Jonathan Browning in his San Francisco headquarters next to the Dornstab floor lamp, originally designed by J.T. Kalmar and re-edited by Browning. His Montalembert sconce is shown below, left.

repertoire expanded, we introduced brass and then lead crystal. I’d always wanted to use lead crystal because it’s such a beautiful alternative to glass. Crème de la crème: My passion has always been industrial design, but I’m also a big fan of French Beaux Arts. The French essentially studied every element of classical design, learning the rules so that they could break them and introduce something the world had never seen. Luxury suite: To me, Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont is the height of luxury. It’s incredible to go into a room that was so beautifully designed in the 1920s and that has been restored but not fussed over. It is like stepping into an old photograph.

Hero worship: Otto Wagner gave voice to industrial design as a decorative language. I also admire Stanford White, who was really the first decorator; he would bring architectural elements from Italy and France and build whole rooms for them. Finally, I consider Louis Comfort Tiffany a genius of massively misunderstood proportion. He is often dismissed as being a little known stained-glassed window and lamp designer, which is insane. Beauty statement: The construction of the Montalembert sconce is what gives it its beauty. The electrical work flows through the brass tube, curving downward and back up, never touching the crystal shade; the armature is just there to cradle the crystal. The result is like sculpture.

AT ANN SACKS, ART, CRAFT AND A DOSE OF SCIENCE MEET TO CREATE THE COMPANY’S SIGNATURE LINE OF TILES. WRITTEN BY LISA BINGHAM DEWART

These days, the transformation of an Ann Sacks tile from rough sketch to finished tile takes place in a sprawling Portland, Oregon, factory. However, the company’s dedication to craft, along with some of the same kilns, remains the same as it did nearly a quarter century ago when the founder of the eponymous company decided to add to her line of tile imported from Mexico with her own signature collection. The story continues in a quiet corner of the factory. There, a skilled craftsman—who goes by Gerbert—translates ideas conceived by Ann Sacks’ in-house design team and by notable collaborating designers, such as Robert

Kuo, Kelly Wearstler and Laura Kirar, into the first stages of a new tile addition to the core Made by Ann Sacks collection. “He’s a true artist,” says DeeDee Gundberg, director of product development. “He takes the design from concept to drawing to understand the repeat before transitioning it to a wax model.” From there, Gundberg and her colleagues tweak the design and make changes. “Maybe it’s just softening a corner,” says Justin Burgin, team leader of finished goods, or, “refining a line to make it slightly thinner.” Then, a wax model gets made to create a rubber positive, which in turn is used to create the mold. Finally,

Ann Sacks’ signature line of earthenware and stoneware tiles, the Made by Ann Sacks collection, offers a rainbow of colors and a mind-boggling assortment of textures, shapes and sizes.

the prototype is fired and ready for glazing. It’s a critical step, since glazes can behave differently. And, notes Burgin, “Things stand out more when glazed, so it’s critical to see if any flaws appear.” Once the design is complete, the tile is ready to be put into production, joining a dizzying array of colors (over 150!) and shapes from hexagons, arabesques and scallops to the ever-popular subway tile, not to mention textures, including the Ann Sacks Modern Ribbed tiles, a recent introduction. “It’s extremely important we stay relevant,” says Gundberg. The company produces both earthenware and stoneware designs from locally sourced clay. Earthenware, the first type of

tile the company produced, allows for solid glossy or matte glazes, while the stoneware body lends itself to more decorative shapes. For basic shapes, production starts when the wet clay goes through an extruder, where it’s flattened and then cut into slugs before being loaded into presses to make specific shapes. For some tiles, including all the stoneware offerings, the designs are stamped by hand. Afterward, the tiles spend 12 to 15 hours drying before they’re ready to be biscuit-fired in the continuous kiln—a hulking piece of machinery that takes the tile up to 1,976 degrees Fahrenheit and back to room temperature in as little as 80 minutes. Then, it’s

onto the glazing area, where the pieces are either glazed on the line or hand-sprayed. Each tile in the Made by Ann Sacks collection is touched by at least seven people during its transformation. Burgin is quick to point out that a little piece of everyone involved in the production goes into the finished product. “They’re incredibly passionate about it,” he says. During factory tours, design lovers see that firsthand. “They’re blown away by the handmade process, the artisanal quality and the craftsmanship they see,” says Gundberg. “The story is extremely important to tell, so they understand what went into the making of that tile.”


RADAR / DEBUT

Best part about working with Theodore Alexander on your new collection, Califolio? The first thing the team at Theodore Alexander told me when we began to work together was “design like you have no constraints,” and I immediately understood why. Their capabilities are endless; they have their own foundry and handle their own finishing and leather fabrication. It allowed me to create exactly what I wanted: a large, ambitious collection (of over 75 pieces!) with a real wabi-sabi flavor and plenty of interesting textures and finishes. Share your inspiration for the collection. The size of the collection enabled me to combine a lot of the different things I’m influenced by: organic design and materials, as well as American Art Deco modernism.

WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

I also wanted to create a dialogue here that speaks to Los Angeles’ eclecticism, to the way we celebrate the melting pot of cultures that make up our community and how we’ve learned to mix both high and low, elegance and simplicity in our homes. Do you have a favorite piece? They’re all special to me, but I’m especially proud of the work we did on the Flint table (shown). To bring that piece to life, we had to work with Theodore Alexander to add new finishes and techniques to its repertoire. For example, for the handsome oak tabletop, we designed a finish called Sandalwood for a rich, honey color; then, to take it even further, we put it through a wire-brushing process before hitting it with white cerused wax and a very, very fine steel wood for a satin finish.

It also has a beautiful base. Yes! The Flint table also features another new finish called Foundry, a lovely metallic that gives the base the illusion of being cast in bronze. In reality, the base is fabricated resin, which makes it easier to render its river rock-shaped cutouts. I’ve always been attracted to anything curvilinear or kidney-shaped. These silhouettes, popular in the 1940s through ’60s, are some of my favorite things from that period of modernism. Dream meal to serve on this table? A fantastic L.A.-inspired lunch with fresh, homemade heirloom tomato salsa with chipotle peppers, vegetarian tacos with avocado and peppers, and delicious BBQ shrimp skewers. It’s a great example of what entertaining in California is all about: flavor and quality and health. Just don’t forget the gluten-free corn tortillas!

WHAT: Working with Italian, Chinese and German crepe papers, Turner folds, twists, paints, bleaches and glues each petal, stigma and stem, overseeing the metamorphosis of a seemingly simple piece of paper into a lifelike flower that can take as long as five weeks to construct in her meticulous way.

“I’ve got my eye on local artist and selfportraitist Danielle Nelson Mourning. The arresting photos she produces are windows to alternate worlds, pulling me directly in and encouraging me to stay a while. The images are beautiful and intriguing, and her immense capacity for reinvention is endlessly fascinating to me.”

“Every trip I take to Matt Dick’s Small Trade Company is exciting. I have the utmost respect for small shops like his that are dedicated to making things with the utmost consideration and care (think handtooled leather, custom indigo-dyed fabrics, clothing and objects). Both Matt and his company are absolute works of art.”

“Lisa Dolby Chadwick gives insight and historical context to everything in her eponymous gallery. She shows things that are meaningful and can explain why they are collectable in the most approachable way. She never makes the process of finding art stuff y or uncomfortable and her love for the work is evident.”

WHY: Who wouldn’t want to peruse this feed for a daily dose of beautiful botany? Whether she’s sharing her favorite local artists, behindthe-scene shots of her upcoming book, Papel: The Fine Art of Botanical Paper Craft, or posting where she’ll be hosting her next class, Turner’s Instagram serves as an artistic diary. IN HER WORDS: “I hope to bring nature’s incredible rhythms and patterns to light through my work. I take things you might not notice, like the shape of the smallest floret on a flower, and put it right in your face at a huge scale, to illuminate and call attention to its incredible beauty.”

ALISON DAMONTE Few designers have the uncanny ability to pull off perfectly blended spaces featuring a mix of varying pieces and colors, yet for local designer Alison Damonte, the feat comes naturally. “I always like to incorporate an unexpected color or piece of rare, vintage furniture into a project,” she says. “I really believe that a space gains depth when not everything adheres to a strict color palette, is recognizable or new, or is all the same scale.” Here, Damonte shares her city staples for when she’s out of the office and ready to break some rules. alisondamonte.com Where is local design going? In the past few years, there has been a shift away from dark, industrial interiors to more authentic, unique spaces. This is especially apparent in some of my favorite restaurants and shops: The curved, glossy ceiling and glitter bathroom at The Progress on Fillmore, for example, are super fresh. I also think Le Point on Valencia has a wonderful interior that’s understated, sparse and Scandinavian in design, but the custom, geometric furniture is exceptional. Ones to watch: I have been dreaming of using a big, geometric, colorful Clare Rojas painting for a few years now, but she has become so popular that it may be unrealistic. A friend recently introduced me to the work of ReCheng Tsang. I love the fusion of rustic and polished texture that comes across in her work. 148 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Favorite scouting spot? For me, discovery is one of the best parts of my job. I’m sure if I wasn’t an interior designer, I’d be a great private investigator, as I truly get a thrill from searching out vintage furniture and accessories. Sometimes, I feel like I have actually been to the edge of the Internet and back, which is obviously exhausting, so I appreciate being able to drop into Stuff on Valencia Street for a quick fi x of quirk. Share a dog-eared page from your little black book. Jeff Farnsworth of Farnsworth Modern is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to vintage furniture. I love his eye for less-expected pieces, especially those from Mexico or Brazil, which aren’t otherwise easily found in San Francisco. He always has the best stories to share, which makes me appreciate everything in his shop. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY HANNAH TOLES

HALF HITCH GOODS When did you open? I officially launched the brand and online store in November 2012, and our concept-store-on-wheels, the Rolling Shoppe, drove into the picture a year later. Describe your concept for the Rolling Shoppe. It was important for me to create something that captured the same excitement people feel when both giving and receiving a gift—to craft an experience. So, I designed the truck myself and collaborated with local craftsmen in order to develop the design. The concept was a simple caravan that would make it easy to shop casually in public. Folks see the truck from across the street and make a beeline to see it because they’re curious about what’s in store and want to know all about our 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Doka. The inventory? We offer handmade goods made by artist partners who we sometimes collaborate with to create items exclusively for our shop. We love things that are useful, hardworking and don’t just take up space. Up next for Half Hitch Goods? We recently moved our office up to western Sonoma, so expect to see us popping up in the Point Reyes Station and Napa area more often. halfhitchgoods.com

TALKING SHOP WITH CARRIE CAILLOUETTE

This January, the curatorial team behind Untitled, Art will introduce an epic transformation of San Francisco’s historic, once-in-ruins Pier 70. The former shipyard will play host to the inaugural Untitled, San Francisco art fair, which will open to the public the weekend of January 13. The fair’s mission is to create an alliance between art aficionados in all walks of life through an itinerary of powerful on-site performances, tours and discussions. Local architecture firm Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects will be spearheading the redesign of the famous pier in the Dogpatch neighborhood. “OPA’s knowledge of the Bay Area and its extensive experience designing spaces specifically for viewing contemporary art distinguishes the firm as the ideal collaborator for our purposes,” says Jeffrey Walkowiak, Untitled’s director of communications. The curatorial team is being led by Artistic Director Omar LópezChahoud, with curators Christophe Boutin and Melanie Scarciglia, who will assemble both international and local exhibitors for a show that will revolutionize not just the Bay Area arts scene, but this forgotten landmark as well. art-untitled.com

DATE BOOK

CHRISTIANA COOP AND AIMEE KINDSFATHER LAGOS: HYGGE & WEST When opportunity came knocking in 2008 for friends and now business partners Christiana Coop and Aimee Kindsfather Lagos, it seemed like kismet, since the two had plotted owning their own business together since childhood. Today, that dream has become Hygge & West, a boutique wallpaper and fabric brand rich in color and exuberant pattern that has captivated the attention of the design world thanks to fresh and fun collaborations from national talents such as Justina Blakeney, Paper Fashion and Rifle Paper Co. When the friends aren’t collaborating on the brand’s next line, you’ll find them spending time with family, binge-watching their favorite television shows, cooking or enjoying the local scenery. Between business and pleasure, how do they keep their creative juices flowing? “It may sound cliché, but we find the most inspiration from traveling,” says Coop. “Just coming across something unexpectedly has inspired many a pattern.” With that in mind, the San Francisco-based duo share what’s inspiring them in their own backyard. hyggeandwest.com

10 a.m. Take a stroll through Washington Square Park and then down to Eden & Eden on Jackson Street. It’s a quirky shop where we always find something different and special. The shop owner, Rachel, has an exquisite eye for vintage and new pieces, and carries amazing finds from Europe. We love her shop so much that we recently collaborated on a wallpaper collection featuring two of her designs. 11 a.m. Meander around Jackson Square, a beautiful, old ’hood with a slight New York feel to it. Plus, there are a lot of fun shops there such as Artist Craftsman and Supply, inspiring showrooms like Hedge, and the best bookstore for design lovers, William Stout Architectural Books. 12 p.m. Continue shopping at Legion on Commercial Street. It’s a hidden gem that has a wonderful selection of unique brands and a small, rotating art collection from local artists, all curated by the owner. Afterward, head over to Tina Frey Designs, a really fun studio that is definitely worth making an appointment to visit! She makes stunning resin dishware with a very 152 / LUXESOURCE.COM

natural feel to it. We are both particularly smitten with her rabbit’s ear dishes from the Lapin collection. 1 p.m. Pop in for lunch at Cotogna on Pacific Avenue. Order whatever panzanella is on the menu that day—it’s sure to be delicious! 2 p.m. Cross over to SoMa for a visit to the newly renovated SFMoMA. Afterward, it’s wine time in their charming courtyard. 4 p.m. Catch an Uber to the Heath Ceramics showroom on 18th Street. It’s a beautiful space with not just its own stunning selection of ceramics and tiles, but also a great collection from other creatives. We recently collaborated with Heath on a capsule collection of wallpaper featuring four different patterns that are synonymous with the brand. 5 p.m. Head back to Jackson Square, stopping at Leo’s Oyster Bar in the Financial District for fresh oysters amidst pattern-filled décor. 6 p.m. The day’s not complete without more dining at Liholiho Yacht Club. Please take note of the tiled floor here: It’s as good as the food. Order the Spam musubi and don’t forget the baked Hawaii, a take on the traditional Alaskan dessert, with caramelized pineapple ice cream and vanilla chiffon.

DATE BOOK PHOTOS: COURTESY HYGGE & WEST.

9 a.m. We like to start our day with coffee at Caffe Greco. It’s our favorite authentic Italian coffee shop, and it’s just up the road from Jackson Square on Columbus Avenue.

Preface: A biography of celebrated photographer, set designer and artist Sir Cecil Beaton that explores his dynamic personality through his interiors and private life.

THESE FALL FINDS RADIATE LUXURY, INCITING INTEREST FROM OUR LATEST ROUND OF STYLISH DESIGN DIGNITARIES. WRITTEN BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOANNA MCCLURE

NIMA TAHERZADEH

FASHION DESIGNER & FOUNDER HEROINESPORT.COM

Signature: Kate Spade has really revolutionized the accessory business, and the brand continues to do so with other categories that help shape the well-lived lifestyle. Material: Velvet and leather have a tendency to be soft and sexy; in this case, they cause an understated juxtaposition with the structural and industrial brass legs. Fashion x Interiors: I believe that the definition of luxury changes from time to time. For now, the focus is more about comfort, ease and access in both fashion and interiors—a quiet luxury à la well-crafted and beautifully designed pieces. Necessary Extravagance: However you define luxury, bring it about as often as you can.


LAP OF LUXURY

THE PIECE: Syrie Stools THE DESIGNER: Kate Spade New York FIND IT: katespade.com THE INSPIRATION: From the clean piping of the cushions to the fearlessly feminine brass legs, the Syrie stools epitomize exactly what Kate Spade New York has always been about: classic design with a twist. Here, buttery leather and blush cut velvet keep the seats au courant, while the cut of the legs adds an unexpected edge, proving that the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature ethos is sure to always keep us on our toes.

PRIMITIVE LINEN BACKGROUND IN JUNIPER BY DE LE CUONA

GOLD MINE THE PIECE: Iolite Table Lamp THE DESIGNER: Jean-Louis Deniot FIND IT: bakerfurniture.com THE INSPIRATION: The Iolite table lamp is one clever chameleon, sparking a curious source of inspiration. And that is exactly what Jean-Louis Deniot intended to do with this striking design made of brass and alabaster. Fashioning an organic, naturalistic shape, the French design luminary left the product open to interpretation: Is it a shell encasing a pearl or a peacock feather? Either way, this sculptural piece provokes conversation and brightens any space it inhabits.

JONATHAN MEIZLER

FASHION DESIGNER & FOUNDER TITLEOFWORK.COM

Heritage: Baker’s craftsmanship has been highly regarded from its inception, and to this day, the quality stands up to its name. Material: I am intrigued by the artful contrasts in Deniot’s design—the hard and soft, the smooth and the liquid, the metallic and the organic; together, they strike a beautiful balance and create harmony. Recall: A striking piece like Deniot’s anchors a room or creates a conversation. It evokes a memory, dream or inspiration. To me, it feels a little Deco. Necessary Extravagance: Luxury is all about dreaming. It’s being able to afford to have the time to grasp the unnecessary. Time is our biggest luxury. Fashion x Interiors: If you don’t need it, it’s luxury, and that applies across any category.


HAYDEN LASHER HANDBAG DESIGNER HAYDENLASHER.COM

Signature: Celerie Kemble’s designs are fresh yet traditional, and many of her pieces feel as if they could have been handed down through generations— the perfect combination of contemporary and nostalgia. Details: These boxes epitomize luxury because they don’t just serve a purpose; they are also special and artistic. The devil is in the details, and there is no better way to tie a space together than with the accessories. Recall: They remind me of a box my grandmother used to keep in her library that was full of matchbooks she collected from her travels around the world. Composition: The way the boxes are enveloped by de Le Cuona’s lush linen makes it feel like you have just unwrapped a gift. Fashion x Interiors: Kemble’s mixture of rattan and brass reads as smart, distinctive and tailored—a winning combination in all facets of design.

TREASURE TROVE THE PIECE: Rattan & Brass Boxes THE DESIGNER: Celerie Kemble FIND IT: maitland-smith.com THE INSPIRATION: It’s no question that Celerie Kemble is a fan-favorite, and her chic and livable interiors have effortlessly translated into an accessories line with Maitland-Smith. Case in point: these rattan and brass boxes, envisaged with a modern blend of natural materials and a glimmer of glamour—an adored Kemble trademark.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

GREAT HEIGHTS THE PIECE: Fulcrum Candlesticks THE DESIGNER: Lee Broom FIND IT: leebroom.com THE INSPIRATION: Once again, Lee Broom takes us to another level with his just-the-right-amount-of-edge Fulcrum candlesticks. Exploring the capabilities of pivots and supports, Broom employed solid Carrara marble to put his ideas into practice. Considering the products’ colossal and sculptural presence, one is easily reminded that these are indeed not your grandmother’s candlesticks.

KARLA GALLARDO, COFOUNDER & CEO SHILPA SHAH, COFOUNDER & CXO CUYANA.COM

Detail: Luxury is in the details, and Lee Broom’s candlesticks have been carefully conceptualized; his vision and modernity are very in-line with the Cuyana aesthetic. Material: Marble is so rich and transcendent yet its natural texture commands attention in a subtly powerful way. Fashion x Interiors: The two run parallel in that rich materials and beautiful craftsmanship are of equal importance. Incorporating these precious finds into your home— and closet—can make the everyday feel elevated. Timelessness: It’s important to bring the customer back to the essence of a product through its materials and design. To invest in luxury is to invest in something that will bring you comfort and gratification for years to come.


CUTTING EDGE THE PIECE: Alchemy Table THE DESIGNERS: Lauren Larson and Christian Swafford FIND IT: material-lust.com THE INSPIRATION: The self-described “dark horses of design” enamor us with the latest addition to their Geometry is God collection: the Alchemy table. In maintaining a keen focus on their Solitarian design philosophy and distinct aesthetic, this piece—driven by the alchemical symbolism for air, earth, fire and water—personifies the duo’s fascination and commitment to ancient symbols and a proclivity to reinterpret these markings in contemporary and striking ways.

LELA ROSE

FASHION DESIGNER LELAROSE.COM

Continuity: Lauren and Christian have such a strong aesthetic that is present in really every piece they design—I always respect a dedication to an artistic ideal. Material: Brass, both polished and brushed (as in this case), always screams luxury to me. Recall: The calculated proportions and mixed-metal finishes are reminiscent of the Cubism period. Composition: I love the rough yet lavish vibe of the background textile, which especially complements the brilliant polish and high design of the Alchemy table. Evolution: I don’t think that luxury and formality are mutually exclusive. I want to feel luxurious in what I wear, the quality of it, how it fits the body; similarly, I want to cultivate pieces for my home that evoke that same feeling. Big or small, whether you wear it or just admire it, luxury goods bring you joy.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

IN THE 21 CENTURY ST

Technology has influenced and affected every industry in design—its ubiquity has forced even the most ardent of purists to adapt in one way or another. But simply adapting is not enough: The survival of today’s leading manufacturers of luxury, bespoke goods has been contingent upon their ability to find an equilibrium between handmade and high-tech. “The Mark of the Maker” takes a look inside some of the most respected companies in their fields, recognized for their painstakingly intricate building processes and commitment to pre-modern artisanal forms of production.

THE MARK OF THE MAKER

SUN VALLEY BRONZE When Bob and Debbie Commons started Sun Valley Bronze over 20 years ago near the resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho, the goal was to create something better, more durable and with greater integrity than what was already on the market. Bob was in the high-end residential building industry, and Debbie was drafting architectural plans; they observed a void in the market when it came to the finish details for high-end residences. Sun Valley Bronze succeeded in fulfilling its objectives and has grown into a leading manufacturer of fine architectural hardware. A factor that has propelled the company to the upper echelon of decorative hardware is its ability to adapt to change in the marketplace, from design preferences to technological advances in conceptualization and building. “When Sun Valley Bronze first started, all patterns were made in a wood shop by hand. Today, we are using state-of-the-art 3-D modeling software and CNC milling machines that are all manufactured in California at the Haas CNC factory. We collaborate with Boise State University to realize some of our more complicated designs with 3-D printing technology,” Bob explains. Sun Valley Bronze’s work, known for its simple, clean and timeless qualities, is driven by ergonomics and process. “Service and quality are the most important parts of our company,” he says. “We are focused on making products we are proud of, crafted of the highest quality materials and made in the U.S., and we back it up with friendly, prompt and honest service.”

Our clients are looking for one-ofa-kind products designed to last.

INSIDE SUN VALLEY BRONZE Fresh + favorite collections. Sun Valley Bronze is excited to introduce its new lighting collection, including the freestanding Otto lamp. A favorite of Bob’s is the patented adjustable ball-bearing hinge, which is a resounding success because it works so flawlessly. Provenance. Sun Valley Bronze designs and manufactures all of its products proudly in the U.S. Newly acquired. Sun Valley Bronze purchased Reveal Designs, which manufactures exceptional modern hardware, all designed by its worldrenowned design partners. Artistic update. Sun Valley Bronze is now casting brass in addition to its white and silicon bronze. Fun family fact. The lock key cover was designed by the Commons’ son Josh. He designed it to fit his thumbprints so the cover could easily be pushed from side to side. That small interaction with the hardware guided his process and is why the key cover has the unique ridge in the face of the design.

1. Assembly. Sun Valley Bronze hardware assembly includes stainless steel components and Teflon-coated springs for flawless function and to ensure longevity in humid or coastal climates. 2. Casting. The furnace heats the bronze to a pouring temperature of 2250° Fahrenheit.

The hallmark of Hubbardton Forge lighting is design that is graceful and unembellished, allowing the materials and forms to speak for themselves.

HUBBARDTON FORGE

A dynamic and diverse mélange of creative talent converges at the Hubbardton Forge headquarters in Castleton, Vermont, where one-of-a-kind, sculptural lighting is brought to life through deft craftsmanship and ingenuity. A team of more than 225 designers, artisans, metal crafters, welders, production staff members and customer service professionals contributes to Hubbardton Forge’s long-standing success and designation as one of the U.S.’s most esteemed lighting manufacturers. In addition to its exclusively made-in-America practices, Hubbardton Forge is unwavering in its use of quality materials and artful, handcreated building methodologies. “At Hubbardton Forge, we are designers and makers; each piece is made to order, whether a single piece or every corridor of a hotel,” explains David Kitts, Design Director of the company. “Each fixture will have its own personality brought forth from the fires of the forge.” Blending the time-honored with the avant-garde, Hubbardton Forge continues to find equilibrium in a technologically driven marketplace. “We still use the hammer and anvil on some designs, but technology, especially LEDs, has had a major impact on our practices. The light source is no longer secondary in the design development process but is now often the driver in the design,” Kitts says. “Working with a local LED manufacturer, we’re able to do things we never thought possible. We can bend the lighting element to become an integral part of a fixture’s sculpture, or we can suspend the metal sculpture and envelop it with a wash of up/down light from an LED light guide platform that is part of its forged steel frame.” 1

THE DESIGN PROCESS Who: The designers at Hubbardton Forge come from backgrounds in architecture, engineering and even jewelry design. They possess a wealth of knowledge and a deep respect for all art forms. What: Designers work individually and as a team, brainstorming, sketching, meeting and critiquing, often pushing themselves and each other to create designs that celebrate form, materials and artistry that can only be achieved through handcrafted design. Where: American-made, in Castleton, Vermont. Why: To merge “art and illumination.” “Given the choice, don’t we want our lives to be illuminated artfully throughout the day?” asks Hubbardton Forge’s V.P. of Marketing, Jeanne-Marie Gand.

Consumers who want to build their dream kitchen put an emphasis on handcraftsmanship. There are only three high-end brands that are true to the handcrafted tradition of being built in the U.S., with DACOR as one of them. Breakthrough design. A great accomplishment was creating the 30-inchwide wall oven category in 1987. Every other ultrapremium brand offers one now, and it has become an industry standard. Fan favorite.

DACOR

Innovation and heritage are both honored in the creation and execution of DACOR-made appliances. DACOR (Distinctive Appliance CORporation) was incorporated in 1965 in Los Angeles; however, its origins date back to the Stananthony Corp., established in 1948 by Stan and Anthony Joseph. The company was founded on the credo of “innovations that matter,” which was reflected in its first product: a complete self-contained kitchen ventilation hood system for the high-end residential market. This credo is still woven into DACOR’s corporate ethos and can be seen in the many industry firsts credited to the brand. “We don’t innovate to be fashionable,” says Michael West, director of marketing at DACOR. “We only pursue innovations that will matter and make a tangible difference to the home chef. A great example is the DACOR iQ product that integrates a computer tablet into the oven operation.” Founded and based in California, DACOR finds inspiration in the design, technological, educational and entrepreneurial subcultures that distinguish the state and seeks influence and insight from other industries and leading professionals in their field. “DACOR’s design team pays attention to technology changes, such as induction cooking and control methods like integrating Android tablets for better performance and usability. DACOR taps outside talent such as BMW Designworks USA and the chefs at Le Cordon Bleu (who have tested and recommended our cooking products) to improve its offerings to keep them cutting-edge,” West explains.

BERNHARDT Bernhardt-built: It’s a legacy that honors hundreds of beautifully made furnishings crafted over a century. One of the largest family-owned companies in the country, Bernhardt is led today by the fourth generation of Bernhardts, enabling the firm’s rich history to live on through a deeply committed familial leadership. From its earliest days, furniture making has been an artisanal skill, passed down from generation to generation. Bernhardt honors the origins of the craft—as do its employees. “Over the 127 years we’ve been in business, generations of artisans have passed their expertise on to the next, while incorporating new technologies and innovative ways of making furniture,” shares Alex Bernhardt Jr., Bernhardt’s CEO and president. “The creativity, ingenuity and dedication of countless fathers and mothers, sons and daughters and husbands and wives form the bedrock of our company.” Founded in 1889 by John Mathias Bernhardt, Alex Bernhardt Jr.’s great-grandfather, Bernhardt was born upon the tenets of high-caliber materials, craftsmanship and people. “Leveraging the region’s natural resources and local woodworking skills to strengthen the local economy, he [John] opened his factory with vast ambitions and 25 employees. Our original guiding principle was quality craftsmanship in all our products and a responsibility and partnership with the people of our community,” Alex explains. Bernhardt’s case goods and upholstery are cherished and coveted globally, showcasing thoughtful originality and meticulous execution: they can be found adorning the interiors of posh five-star hotels, private residences and revered public institutions. “Our hope is that when someone looks at a piece of furniture, they will know it is Bernhardt by its style,” he says.

INSIDE BERNHARDT: HERITAGE AND DESIGN

We are dedicated to the idea of affordable luxury.

What is the philosophy behind your firm? The company’s history is one of creativity and passion for the artistry of furniture making, united with a deep commitment to people and relationships. Is your work easily recognizable? Do you have signature design elements? Particularly in our home collections, our brand is known for creating jewelry for the home, creating luxury moments where we live. This is usually accomplished by mixing different finishes and materials, with an emphasis on a variety of metals. Do you have a design process? If so, what is it? We create a palette of colors and materials and then create forms to clothe in these various textures. We rarely create a single piece in a vacuum. It’s always about the mix within a room.

1. One-of-a-kind pieces: a credenza hand-carved and wrapped in German silver paired with modern horn chairs. 2. Elevating furniture to art form with handwork processes and organic-applied materials. 3. Originality and artisanal workmanship in the parchmentcovered credenza and textured iron and hide chair.

PERSONAL TOUCH IN THE HOME’S BUSIEST SPACES, LUXURY MEANS DITCHING COOKIE-CUTTER STYLE FOR HIGHLY CUSTOM LOOKS THAT ARE BRIMMING WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND PANACHE. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

There is no staple recipe for the perfect kitchen or bath. And while a few tried-and-true formulas can get you pretty close (think one-part design inspiration from your favorite shelter magazine, one-part your preferred color and material palettes and two-parts whatever works for your family and lifestyle), the time it takes to cook up all the elements varies widely from person to person and project to project. Only one thing remains consistent: The most successful rooms in the home are those you fill with the things you love. The secret to design bliss is knowing when to break the rules in favor of additions—like an elegant chandelier over a freestanding tub or a bold rug in the kitchen—that make you uniquely happy. On the following pages, we convince some of Luxe’s favorite designers to spill the secrets behind their most-coveted—and therefore inherently covetable—spaces.

Interior designer Laura Burleson didn’t overlook a single detail in designing her casual yet sophisticated workhorse space but still managed to have plenty of fun, playing with texture and color and introducing unexpected elements throughout. lauraburleson.com

Favorite element in the space? The campaignstyle sink base. I fell in love with a giant vintage chest in London during the remodel, but its dimensions were off; instead, I had a cabinetmaker build a replica out of walnut and brass hardware.

Share the vision for your kitchen. I wanted the space to feel like a dining room that happens to have a kitchen on the periphery, rather than a kitchen with a table in the middle; so, I eliminated traditional upper cabinets and designed the cabinetry to look more like furniture.

How did you master the mix? In this space, the walnut sink base and cypress ceilings dictated the palette, so I used Farrow & Ball’s Elephant’s Breath on the cabinetry, hood and walls to unite the wooden undertones—thereby drawing the eye to the more dominant elements.

A universal fi xture base like Axor’s U-Base is more than just an easy solution for renovations and remodeling; it’s an invitation to unchartered creative expression in two of the home’s most oft-predictable spaces. This year, Axor invited top design talents, like David Adjaye, Werner Aisslinger, GamFratesi and Jean-Marie Massaud, to create one-of-a-kind spouts using the U-Base system, and the result is a series of five fine-crafted and sculptural masterpieces, like the Water Steps faucet by Front shown here, that are sure to add individualized, artistic fl air to any space they inhabit. axor-design.com

A study in contrasts, this bathroom’s warm brass faucets from Waterworks pop against a palette of whites and grays established by floor tiles from New Ravenna. The washstand is from Palmer, and the sconces are from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

When interior designer Marianne Simon decided she wanted to capture a bit of coastal elegance in a Seattle bathroom, she could think of only one material that would bring her vision to life: brass. Used sparingly throughout— on the cool nautical-style mirrored medicine cabinets from RH, the seafaring sconces overhead, and the pretty-as-a-picture washstand and matching faucets—the brass both pops against the clean subway tiles and reins in the dizzying intrigue of the abstract tiles underfoot. “Brass, especially the unlacquered brass I used here, is really hot right now,” Simon says. “It patinas beautifully and adds warmth. It’s a great alternative to other finishes, especially in spaces you don’t want to feel too sweet. It truly just gets better and better with time.” mariannesimondesign.com 212 / LUXESOURCE.COM

MODERN HISTORY THE DESIGN TEAM: Interior Design / Nicole Hollis Architecture / Walker Warner Architects Home Builder / Van Acker Construction Associates

218 / LUXESOURCE.COM

THE CHALLENGE: Modernize a classic apartment in a historic 1920s building in Pacific Heights. The clients relocated to Northern California to be closer to family, and with a tight schedule, they called on interior designer Nicole Hollis to reimagine their new residence. THE WORK: Although the interior of the apartment didn’t need much structural work, Hollis, architect Brooks Walker and builder Glen Sherman made it their priority to restore the structure’s original millwork and trim. “We breathed life into the place and honored what was once there,” Sherman says. For the design, Hollis chose to use basic but striking colors, such as stark white tones, moody grays and rich shades of black and bronze, to mimic the look of an iconic

black-and-white photograph and emphasize the views. “With the wide views of the Bay, the light has many moods throughout the day,” she says. In the living room, Hollis layered textures with a velvet-upholstered sofa and leather armchairs, all by Christian Liaigre and purchased from De Sousa Hughes. A lush Moroccan rug from Tony Kitz Gallery grounds the space, while handblown glass sconces along the wall give the room a subtle glow. THE RESULT: Not only does the neutral color scheme add a modern flair to the apartment, but it also emphasizes its incredible artwork. “Our home is very calm,” the wife says. “The art is showcased, but it doesn’t float in the rooms as if it’s the only focal point. Everything here is in great harmony.”

SOMETHING NEW THE DESIGN TEAM: Interior Design / Applegate Tran Interiors Home Builder / Building & Beyond, Inc.

220 / LUXESOURCE.COM

THE CHALLENGE: Infuse a concrete-and-glass contemporary gem in Saratoga with color and bold patterns yet incorporate soft textures to tamp down the minimally modern design and transform it into something never seen before. “The clients wanted something less predictable,” says designer Gioi Tran. THE WORK: Tran started off the design with a “push-and-pull” approach, striking a balance between going unexpected in terms of color and materials and still being able to maintain that feeling of comfort and usability. To reach that perfect balance, he chose clean-lined furnishings with plenty of patterns and textures, along with a color palette of muted grays, taupe and white

so nothing would be too overpowering. Pops of blue and orange, which can be seen in the living room, add a lively feel, completely reinventing the spaces. “The deep blue colors provide an anchor, and the orange tones add some movement,” notes Tran. THE RESULT: With its sensational hues and unique layout, this house definitely reflects the owners’ request for something new and different. Everything perfectly blends together, but with its own spin, which was exactly what Tran was hoping to achieve for his clients. Says the designer: “The goal was to have well-edited rooms with selective pieces that go together in an unexpected way.”

ONE WITH NATURE THE DESIGN TEAM: Architecture / Faulkner Architects Interior Design / Sarah Jones Design Home Builder / Jim Morrison Construction Landscape Architecture / Murase Associates and Rock & Rose, Inc.

222 / LUXESOURCE.COM

THE CHALLENGE: Inspired by a ski trip to Lake Tahoe, homeowners Claire and Scott Mackin looked for a way to construct their dream retreat in Martis Camp that would incorporate nature’s most astounding elements. “Like everybody else who goes there, we were gobsmacked by this place,” Claire says. “It touched us in a way that was very emotional.” THE WORK: “This house is all about the sun, the views and the wind,” says architect Greg Faulkner, who designed a concrete-andsteel structure clad with hot-rolled steel and cedar siding. Because the house is a direct response to its surroundings, Faulkner decided to also use floor-to-ceiling windows in order to really capture the feeling of being outdoors. “When it snows, it feels like you’re in a snow globe with

the woods on one side and the mountains on the other,” Claire says. “There’s a blurring of the lines between the indoors and outdoors.” The materials used, such as the wood-paneled ceilings and floors, help to blur those lines, as well, while neutral tones complement the natural shell. THE RESULT: Whether it’s the sweeping views or natural materials, this vacation house has truly become one with nature. During construction, the homeowners, who had been living full-time in New Jersey, ended up moving out of the country, but despite their much-longer commute, they still have no regrets about this project and frequently travel thousands of miles to visit their most-prized possession. “It can take us 20 hours door-to-door, but it’s worth it,” Claire says. “This was a true decision of the heart.”

REAL ESTATE INSIDERS DISH ON THE STATE OF THE LUXURY HOME MARKET: WHAT’S SELLING, WHO’S BUYING, AND WHAT’S HOT NOW. WRITTEN BY MIMI FAUCETT

ON THE MARKET When we asked Jacksonville interior designer Jim Howard to share his design philosophy, he quoted Winston Churchill, saying, “My tastes are simple. I am easily satisfied by the best.” These words seem to ring even truer today, especially when we look at the current state of luxury real estate. To the high-end homebuyer (or seller), today’s unlimited options and unprecedented modern amenities have created a whole new world of knowledge and access, but one thing has remained constant: When it comes to home, we want the best—the best home or condo, in the best neighborhood, on the best block, with all the bells and whistles. And what does that mean in today’s market? Here, we speak with some of the industry’s biggest power players—from a renowned home stager with an eye for what sells to the nation’s top real estate agents—to find out what’s prompting bidding wars all over the country.


THE LOOK / THE REPORT

WE ASKED FIVE TOP REAL ESTATE AGENTS ABOUT THE TRENDS THEY’RE SEEING IN THEIR OWN BACKYARDS.

GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT

1

THE RIGHT LIGHT

The right lighting can make—or break—the sale of your home. A successful lighting scheme comprises a harmonious mixture of ambient, task and accent lighting, so a homeowner can easily choose the mood of the room and increase its functionality. The rule of thumb in interior lighting is to layer all three. Volker Haug’s Discus fixture (shown here) covers all the bases. It is simple and efficient with one exposed bulb, but its decorative marble disks, paired with a brushed-brass finish, create interest and add a pop of color. volkerhaug.com

Which neighborhood is the safest bet for a return on investment? In Greenwich, I don’t think of a specific area as having a better return on investment, but rather a home itself. I also believe that we have gone back to buying a home to live in and for family, not just for investment. Unless, of course, you are an investor looking to invest. Where do new buyers want to be? I have been fortunate enough to have young buyers looking to stay in the urban core and others opting for the suburbs. Barbara Zaccagnini, Coldwell Banker, coldwellbanker.com

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA Most outrageous home you’ve ever sold? An 11,000-square-foot concretesteel-and-glass contemporary estate, all on one level, in Paradise Valley on one of the best streets in town. Which neighborhood is having a moment? Rio Verde Foothills is making national news thanks to its dedication to sustainability practices. What do buyers want? Contemporary architecture has become very popular

since we over-delivered Tuscan and Mediterranean design for the past 15 years. Most buyers are favoring open-floor plans, clean lines and an efficient use of space. Where do buyers want to be? Arizona buyers should be zeroing in on the 85253, 85255 and 85018 area codes. Frank Aazami, Sotheby’s, sothebysrealty.com

have, offices in the central business district and that is where their employees want to live. Traffic is a problem in Austin; so, proximity to where you work and spend your free time is essential. Which neighborhoods should we be keeping our eyes on? I would watch the areas close to the new Dell Medical School and the redevelopment of Waller Creek. These two pillars in Austin will be changing our city. Laura Gottesman, Gottesman Residential Real Estate, gottesmanresidential.com

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Which neighborhood is having a moment? The North Shore is well-established, but there is also a ton of new construction in reinvigorated areas, some of which are being built up by prominent developers. Where does everyone want to be? Millennials are staying in the urban core for an easy commute; they often do not have cars. Families and other age groups are still opting for the suburbs due to lower taxes, schools and the desire for a quieter lifestyle. Linda Martin, Coldwell Banker, coldwellbanker.com

AUSTIN, TEXAS Where does everyone want to be this season? Our urban core is booming in both commercial and residential development. Many of the big tech companies have, or will

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON Most outrageous home you’ve ever sold? The highest priced home we have sold to date was over $20 million, and it still holds the record for the highest sale in Washington. It was an unbelievable custom home on the water with beachfront, looking directly at the Seattle skyline. Neighborhoods we should keep an eye on? Areas east and north of the city are seeing a lot of growth and redevelopment. We are excited about The Spring District in Bellevue and what that will bring to those areas. What locale is having a moment? The West Bellevue community on the east side of Seattle has seen the greatest appreciation year over year. Tere Foster and Moya Skillman, Team Foster at Avenue Properties, fosterrealty.com

Meridith Baer knows what sells. Her namesake home staging firm, which was started by accident in 1995 when she fixed up a home she was leasing and the landlord took notice, has grown from a one-woman show in Los Angeles to a team of 250 operating offices in L.A., Manhattan, the Hamptons, Connecticut, Florida and San Francisco. Just last year, her busy roster of designers completed nearly 1,500 installs. “Really what staging is, is a marketing tool,” says Baer. “We want someone to walk into a home and fall in love.” meridithbaer.com Why does someone need a stager? When you want to sell a house quickly and for the best possible price, a stager is a near necessity. You’re designing a blank room. First item you introduce to the space? Your large pieces of furniture are where you must start. You want to find the focus of the room—it might be a view or a fireplace—and plan your seating arrangement around it. Homebuyers are looking for... Comfort and ease. Buyers should think: It’s going to be easy to live here. It’s going to be easier than where I am now. Share what always helps a sale. A beautifully made, comfortable sofa that you just want to dive into really makes a space. Having quality primary pieces makes a big difference in a room.

A DRAMATIC LOFT IN TRIBECA Tucked inside an industrial-style loft in downtown New York City is a grand home currently owned by J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler. As stylish and colorful as expected, the Thierry Despontdesigned home features an entry inspired by the Maison de Verre in Paris, a rooftop terrace and lofty ceilings. Why we love it: The five-bedroom stunner was once an old coffee roasting plant whose signage still remains, adding to its charm. $27.5 million, 464 Greenwich St.; corenyc.com

Why we love it: The 5,800-square-foot home boasts copious outdoor space complete with an infinity pool and sweeping bay views. $16 million, 4452 N. Bay Rd.; elliman.com

LOS ANGELES

A COUNTRY HOUSE GOES CALIFORNIA-COOL Fashion and furniture designer James Perse reimagined his barn-like property with an effortlessly cool aesthetic perfect for the home’s beachside locale. Located in Point Dume in Malibu, with keyed access to Little Dume beach, the sixbedroom abode is situated on nearly 2 acres. Why we love it: Hints of its seaside environs are seen throughout the home, most notably in the custom surfboards that act as spontaneous décor. $12.9 million, 28929 Bison Ct.; compass.com

Florida designer Jim Howard, of James Michael Howard, has earned quite the reputation for his prolific work in designing spec homes. Unlike the cookie-cutter residences of yesteryear that gave spec homes their colorless reputation, in Howard’s turnkey homes, no detail or expense is spared. Each home comes fully appointed with innovative materials and custom furniture pieces (Exhibit A: the Sagaponack, New York, residence below). Here, Howard shares his tried-and-true tips for creating a stylish house sure to please almost any design sensibility. jamesmichaelhoward.com

Look around: Designing for a client is designing for a specific intent or a particular need. In a spec house,

you’re constantly trying to figure out who your buyer is. Pay attention to what I call the vernacular style, or what is happening in the surrounding area. It’s all in the details: Our firm has a strong architectural focus. A typical house for us starts with countless drawings of interior details. Those small things, when done well, are the soul of the house. It takes time, experience and passion. I always say, “There’s doing it right and there’s all the rest of the ways.” Tone it down: I tend to stay more neutral in palette and introduce color in art. In the house shown here, we have plenty of color, but it’s watered down, with varied textures and metals acting as moments of “color.”

STATE OF THE

ARCHITECTURE Since opening his eponymous architecture firm in Austin, Texas, in 2005, Michael Hsu has had a front-row seat to the capital city’s rapidly shifting design scene. His work includes such local gems as the buzzy South Congress Hotel, the much-acclaimed Japanese eatery Uchi, and other area restaurants, office spaces and luxury residences. “There’s a pursuit to be fresh in design, entrepreneurship and culture,” say Hsu of his design-forward locale. “Austin still has a local vibe, but things that we look toward are no longer regional; they are international.” We sat down with the busy architect to discuss the state of architecture today—and where it’s headed. hsuoffice.com

How have homeowners’ tastes changed since you founded your firm 11 years ago? Homeowners are less tied to specific design style or aesthetic. The influence of social media has changed our clients’ perspective on design. They are more educated about hospitality and style and have really amped up their participation in the creative discovery process. What do your clients look for when they’re building a new home? For the most part, they’re looking to construct an open dialogue between their indoor and outdoor spaces to create an extension of the home’s living area. Even when not in use, the views need to be carefully designed so that the inside and outside amplify each other. Where is architecture going? The way people live and work has drastically changed as of late. The usual hierarchy of home, office and hospitality is blurred; we want design in all facets of our lives. In the future, these spaces will continue to be a part of our lives in similar ways as opposed to different.

Most impactful spaces to remodel? It always comes down to kitchens and bathrooms, which are typically the first places a buyer assesses the date and quality of the home. Downsize or upsize? Buy a presale to downsize but don’t sell your current home until it’s required when the new home is delivered. This allows equity to grow on both transactions in a market that’s rising. realogics.com

What do you keep in mind when helping clients find a home? I look at their personality, lifestyle, price point and needs. Young families who stay in the city are often searching for highly rated public schools. In the downtown market, buyers want convenience, walkability and views. True or false: location, location, location? Absolutely true— especially in the high-end market. jamesonsir.com

Curb appeal or big-name architect? Both. Curb appeal is always sought after and brings an exceptionally high premium to a home, but architects that bring life to older historic properties also bring value. Market trend you’re noticing: Buyers choosing quality over size is a welcome trend. Also, I’m happy to see dark, heavy finishes being replaced with spacious, light-filled design. wolfegroupdenver.com

Any exceptional amenities you’re seeing? I’ve started to see talking toilets recently, if you can believe it! Upsize or downsize? Downsize. Get out of your living room and enjoy your neighborhood and the city you live in—or at least have a reason for your kids not to move back home! Stager or no stager? Stager. Making a property look its best needs no explanation; we do dress ourselves up, don’t we? elliman.com

Top things buyers are looking for today? Quality construction and finishes are first; next, is a livable floor plan. Whether it is family game night or an elegant dinner party, people want an open and flowing living space. Where do new buyers want to be? The “live, work, play” lifestyle is here to stay. People don’t want to burn a half-tank of gas to get to the office and back. waltdanley.com

If the kitchen is the heart of the home; then, the sink is its heartbeat. These days, it seems that high-end faucets and five-star hotel quality fixtures are ubiquitous with luxury residences. Manhattan’s 432 Park Avenue, for example, offers both spectacular views and modern furnishings complemented by polished-chrome fittings from Dornbracht. “Our quality and innovative design was a perfect fit for the project,” says President and CEO of Dornbracht Americas Ingolf Matthée. “As a luxury brand, Dornbracht represents high-quality materials and craftsmanship, and this exclusive building, which we are privileged to be a part of, follows these same principles.” The Deborah Berke Partners-designed model apartment (shown) features Dornbracht’s Tara collection— a staple in the German company’s repertoire—in both the kitchen and bathroom. dornbracht.com

MOVING ON UP

With increasing frequency, today’s luxury homebuyers are eschewing sprawling square footage and green space and choosing instead to stay in the city center and invest in luxury condos. In the case of The Sutton condominium, it’s easy to see the appeal. The 90 residences, designed by New York-based Incorporated Architecture & Design, feature lofty ceiling heights, stunning white oak flooring and sweeping views of Manhattan. The gracious units contain state-of-the-art appliances, such as Gaggenau cooktops and custom Watermark fixtures in the bathroom. The exterior, too, is clad in classic brick, which serves as a sort of ode to the area’s traditional building materials. Its design strikes the perfect balance between New York’s industrial past and modern architectural innovations. When can we move in? incorporatedny.com

Durable, aesthetically pleasing and easy to maintain, tile is often the material of choice in the kitchen and bath. When residents in the San Francisco Bay Area are searching for this versatile material—or, for that matter, any surface for floors, countertops, backsplashes and more—they often turn to Ceramic Tile Design. Led by CEO and president Steve Cerami and vice president Ryan Cerami, the company specializes in providing the most innovative products from premier brands, a task its team members are well prepared to execute. “We hold weekly product knowledge meetings in our showrooms,” Steve says. “They focus on tile lines, manufacturing processes and installation practices. It is important that our designers are educated in every aspect of their trade.” Asked to share current inspirations, Ryan points to the pedestal system, which features thick porcelain tile sitting atop adjustable, sturdy plastic supports. “The pedestals are adjustable in height, aligning for a level deck,” he says. “The space between the bottom of the tiles and the top of the substrate accommodates wiring for lighting, irrigation and speaker wire.”

A PERSONAL ENDEAVOR “Do not be afraid to have fun with your selections and remember to make the space personal,” Steve says. “We often find that clients will come in asking for white or cream, but, after exploring all their options, end up choosing tile colors similar to those in their clothing or jewelry, because they are drawn to them. Your spaces should be reflections of you, so embrace colors and patterns to which you have an emotional reaction.”

WPA SAN FRANCISCO “

Our practice has always been to personalize kitchen and bath design for each client.

Design professionals and homeowners seeking high-end luxury kitchen and bath projects rely on WPA San Francisco for its renowned selection of Arclinea products, a selection that owner Eriche Wilson is honored to showcase in her San Francisco Design Center showroom. Redefining style, creating and innovating have always inspired every Arclinea project and have been at the heart of the brand’s vision. What is it exactly that makes Arclinea stand out from other kitchen and bath manufacturers? “We are fortunate to have Antonio Citterio, the renowned Italian architect, designing our entire Arclinea collection,” Wilson explains. “He meets with professional chefs to make sure every kitchen element is functional and easy to maintain while also incorporating a beautiful aesthetic.” In addition to unique designs and brand distinction, WPA ensures that even the most complex technological desires are fulfilled in each project while also maintaining sustainability in the design. While each project has its unique challenges, Wilson professes that there is always one common goal. “We strive to create warm, welcoming spaces where clients and friends enjoy spending time,” she says. “This translates into kitchens that make it easy and inviting to cook and baths that are calm and relaxing.”

It should also have storage for everything so countertops can be clutter-free and easy to wipe clean. We analyze the flow of activity and position appliances and storage so that we maximize efficiency in the cooking and cleanup process. What should every well-designed bathroom have? Like the kitchen, there should be storage for everything. Drawers rather than door cabinets with internal storage accessories are a must.

hen designer Dara Rosenfeld was hired by a Bay Area couple to craft the interiors of their Lake Tahoe vacation retreat within Martis Camp, two things were clear. First, the husband had a definite vision. “He wanted a rustic feel delivered in a clean, streamlined way,” says Rosenfeld, who arrived on the scene after both the mountain-modern theme and most of the material palette had been established. Second, the architecture was the dominant design force. “It was my job to create interiors that were a seamless extension of the architecture,” she says. The architectural direction was rooted as much in the husband’s sensibility as it was influenced by the heavily wooded site. Tahoe City-based architect Clare Walton selected wood and stone elements set off by steel and glass to achieve the rustic-modern feel. “The reclaimedbarnwood siding and basalt stone bring a ruggedness that very much reflects the environment,” says Walton, who further tied the structure to the land with her thoughtful 252 / LUXESOURCE.COM

siting. “The lot was an unusual shape with magnificent views, and I came at it in a way that allowed the house to unfold as naturally as possible.” Walton’s organic approach was expressed as a series of shapes resembling building blocks set at purposeful angles to frame Lookout Mountain as well as the adjacent golf course views. “There are box forms next to shed forms that are planned but not formal. They are an intuitive response to the needs of the site and are intentionally modern,” says Walton, whose flat-roof projections and noticeable lack of ornamentation firmly distinguish the structure from Tahoe residences of yore. “Unlike the past, there is no decoration for the sake of decoration. Instead, everything has a reason.” Following Walton’s lead, landscape architect Dustin Moore took a similar no-nonsense approach with the outdoor terraces, for which he selected Frontier sandstone flooring. “The stone is very durable and handles freezing and thawing well,” says Moore, adding that he outfitted

In designing a Martis Camp home, architect Clare Walton selected a quiet material palette that allows the structure to meld with its site. The project’s builder, Marshall Williams, installed the wood siding, and the stonework is by Johansen Masonry. Landscape architect Dustin Moore selected native plants for the property.


Designer Dara Rosenfeld devised interiors that would honor the rustic and contemporary sensibility of the architecture. In the light-filled entry, she paired a Bryant Park banquette by Robert Marinelli with a Stone Yard planter, both from Sloan Miyasato.

the metal railings along the terrace with built-in lights and speakers. “It’s fairly stealth and avoids things like speakers popping up in the landscape.” The latter he filled with native plants, such as red twig dogwood, thimbleberry and Sierra currant selected to make the house meld with the natural surroundings. Moving inside, Walton continued the exterior stone on the living room fireplace, but rather than repeating the barnwood, she wrapped the walls and ceilings with more refined clear cedar. Builder Marshall Williams meticulously installed the paneling to create a continuous light-to-dark color fade, fitting all of the woodwork on-site. “It was important to have consistency, so I assembled the wood in several piles and picked the pieces in rotation to get the look just right,” says Williams. With the backdrop firmly established, Rosenfeld introduced colors and furnishings in sync with the rusticmeets-modern directive. With their geometric frames, a quartet of Mimi London lounge chairs in the living room hit the mark. “The chairs’ contemporary clean lines are balanced with the rustic feel of the wood,” says the designer, who added a cast-concrete coffee table and zeroed in on the dark basalt fireplace accent stones as a color thread. “The husband loves gray-blue, so the handknotted rug is in that shade, and I worked in a tinge of LUXESOURCE.COM / 255

gray to the finish on the kitchen cabinets.” Rosenfeld also honored the wife’s request for some chartreuse by infusing the master bedroom with hints of the green tone on the sofa and throw pillow fabrics. Additional color and interest come in the form of artwork, and Rosenfeld was charged with incorporating the couple’s existing collection of paintings by California artist Eric Zener. The water-themed works are a refreshing surprise in the mountain landscape. “The moment I saw the painting of the diver, I knew it had to go over the fireplace,” says Rosenfeld, adding, “Going softer with the furnishings allowed the art to pop and be the star.” Additional works by Zener hang on another wall in the living room as well as in the media room. The house’s immediate connection with the surrounding landscape played an important influence for Rosenfeld as well. “The interior and exterior are an extension of each

other,” says the designer, who strove to choose outdoor furnishings that mimicked the living and dining room pieces in style and color. “You can open the doors and create one big living space, so it was important to have things coordinate,” she says. Along those lines, she chose wood-framed chairs with gray cushions to position around the fire pit that sport a profile similar to the Mimi London seating in the living room. Meanwhile, the weatherproof woven synthetic on the outdoor dining chairs echoes the style of the rope version by The Wicker Works around the dining table inside. That synthesis and flow between the indoors and outdoors, as well as the architecture and design, ultimately reveal a home that’s perfectly in tune with its owners and surroundings. “People come to Tahoe because they love the outdoors,” says Walton. “This house reflects and celebrates the way we live.” LUXESOURCE.COM / 261

THE HUSBAND-AND-WIFE TEAM BEHIND STUDIO BEL VETRO BRING CUSTOM GLASS FIXTURES TO LIGHT FROM THEIR HEALDSBURG STUDIO. WRITTEN BY LAURA MAUK PHOTOGRAPHY BY KRISTEN LOKEN


Lisa Spinella and Paulo DeLima (shown left in front of one of their cascading designs) own Healdsburg-based Studio Bel Vetro. They create custom glass light fixtures, such as chandeliers with delicate forms (below and opposite), which Spinella designs and DeLima brings to life.

W

hen you’re blowing glass, it has to be in constant motion to stay on center,” says Lisa Spinella, a New Jersey native who spent her own time in constant motion as a professional ballet dancer and then as a photographer of ballet before she studied the art of glassblowing. Spinella eventually traded in all things dance to work solely with glass and established Studio Bel Vetro—a Healdsburg-based design company that produces custom lighting made from blown glass—with her teacher-turned-husband and partner in the company, Paulo DeLima. “You have to be fluid because the material responds to your movements,” says DeLima, who grew up and studied art in Boston after his family emigrated from Brazil. Originally a two-dimensional illustrator and painter, DeLima eventually made the switch to focus on glass. “It’s a very seductive process,” he says. “You can’t force it; it’s a collaboration between you and the material.” The collaboration between Spinella and DeLima is one where she now imagines the lighting designs and he realizes them in earthtoned, clear or brilliantly colored glass.

“I’m inspired by organic forms and things that have symmetry,” Spinella says. “I’m a compulsive doodler who thinks in shapes on paper. I just sketch and sketch until I see what I want.” The couple’s process yields made-to-order chandeliers that are crafted of cascading glass bubbles or faceted jewel-like forms, as well as sconces and pendants that have the appearance of light-filled gems, beehives and canoes that suspend from the ceiling or the wall. “The way the glass looks when it’s illuminated and the way the natural light hits it when it’s not illuminated—the pieces just comes to life with light,” Spinella says. For DeLima, glass also comes to life in the studio. “The typical working temperature of the furnace is 2,000 degrees,” says DeLima, who works alongside various assistants to produce the designs. First, the raw glass—which has the consistency of sand—is melted in the furnace until it takes on a liquid property that looks like honey. “We add layers of the melted glass to a metal rod so we can shape it with hand tools,” DeLima says. “The left hand is usually turning the rod while the right is manipulating it. Your hands are doing two different things but have to be in perfect coordination.” The artisans constantly reheat the glass in a second furnace while shaping so it maintains a working temperature. “We use blades, shears, tweezers and newspapers,” Spinella says of their tools of the trade. “They’re instruments that have been around for hundreds of years.” Spinella and DeLima have also expanded their reach to include crafting metal, which they incorporate into their designs. “As our work developed, we created a metal shop in the studio,” says DeLima. “Now we make our own fittings.” Since relocating from Boston to Healdsburg—where the couple oversee both their 4,200-square-foot studio and a small showroom space downtown—three years ago, the company has continued to evolve, and the couple have no plans to leave their new Bay Area home. “I love California,” DeLima says. “People here embrace art and want it in their life. There is also an abundance of light.”


In addition to the light fixtures, DeLima also creates Venetian-style glass goblets (opposite) in the Healdsburg studio. Tools hang from a workbench (below, left), and pipes are kept hot (left) before they are used to work with the glass.

SMALL WONDER DESPITE ITS PETITE FOOTPRINT, A ST. HELENA JEWEL BOXLIKE RETREAT OFFERS BIG STYLE AND COMFORT WITHIN ITS TEXTURED WALLS AND CUSTOMIZED INTERIOR. WRITTEN BY LINDA HAYES / PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL DYER

A guesthouse, created by architect Luke Wade and designer Jennifer R. Macdonald, is tailored to its St. Helena site. The structure, complete with a veranda, was constructed by builder Andy Bannister. Landscape designer Claudia Schmidt utilized stone from the site to create exterior walls.

B

igger isn’t always better, as a Southern California family discovered during visits to their St. Helena vacation retreat. “We wanted to build a second structure for guests while we stayed in the main house,” says the wife. “But as we spent more time on the site, we realized we wanted a smaller, more efficient structure for us to stay in.” With that idea, their focus shifted to using the guesthouse for themselves. Working with architect Luke Wade and designer Jennifer R. Macdonald, the couple had requested a structure that “felt like it came from the land,” says the wife. And with that concept, the 1,200square-foot building began to take shape. “A lot of times when you’re in the wine country, things can turn into a barn or an agricultural building form,” says Wade. “This is more of a woodsy cabin wrapped with a veranda. It’s cozy, yet expansive; nestled into the site, yet embracing of the views.” Although those views—encompassing the property’s working vineyard and mountains beyond—were unlimited, the building size allowance was not. Because the county had

strict guidelines for square footage, Wade opted to create a feeling of spaciousness by encouraging as much light inside the house as possible. Within textured exterior walls crafted of patinated board-on-board red cedar, Douglas fir and native stone excavated from the site, the architect maximized the use of glass, specifying 12½-feet-tall Jada windows and doors. In addition, he designed a light monitor, made of high clerestory windows, to bring dappled light down through the canopy of trees and into the house along its central spine. Within that light-filled shell, Wade and Macdonald, who are longtime collaborators and worked together closely on this project, chose the basic interior materials palette. “It was important to bring interior design in early so that all of the finishes and colors flowed seamlessly,” says Macdonald. To that end, the duo wrapped the interior shell—walls, trim and the nearly 24-foot-tall vaulted ceiling—with reclaimed wood and then grounded the space with integral color concrete floors. Steel elements, including a massive central fireplace surround, play off the textured wood.


A prime corner of the veranda features a suspended daybed designed by Macdonald and built by Statsky Design. The piece has a reclaimed-wood frame and steel backs, which can be repositioned to take in different views of the property.

Wade opened the central living area through Jada doors to the verdant surroundings, and Macdonald designed a custom sofa and chaise, upholstered with velvet by Pindler and built by Kroll Furniture, for the space. The custom console, made from reclaimed wood and iron, is from Dos Gallos in Los Angeles. Statsky Design crafted the custom coffee table.

LUXESOURCE.COM / 273


In organizing the layout, Wade kept the main public spaces in one great room with distinct kitchen, dining and living areas; a ladder leads to an open sleeping loft above. As the floor plan progressed, Wade consulted with Macdonald on her furnishings and interiors concept. “Hearing her ideas helped enrich the architecture and knit the project together,” he says. Given the open nature of the design, throughout the house Macdonald worked with a color palette of various hues of green and silvery gray inspired by the landscape. She chose a deep green Farrow & Ball paint—which is picked up in the fireplace plaster—for the kitchen’s cabinetry and paired it with an Ann Sacks mirrored-tile backsplash. She also took great care to select or custom-design furnishings that worked with the scale of the room. “Careful attention to proportion allows a smaller space to feel spacious,” says Macdonald. “But things also had to be laid out to address

the views, the fireplace and the TV, as well as be functional for the family.” To help meet those goals, she designed a sofa and chaise to anchor the living area and further defined the space with a wool rug by Stark. A built-in dining bench does double duty as a reading nook, and for the upstairs sleeping loft, Macdonald had two custom twin beds made on casters to accommodate the couple’s teenage boys or visiting guests. In addition to the roomy spaces, builder Andy Bannister also had to deal with everything happening behind the scenes. “Part of the challenge with a smaller house is that it still has all of the components of a larger house,” notes Bannister, who worked with project manager Jesse DeBaca and field superintendent Dustin Deason. “We had to harmonize and synchronize, to make sure electrical components, like wiring, worked with all of the exposedbeam ceilings.”

Another departure from the open concept came with the design of the master bedroom. There, the room is enveloping, and Wade added a peaked sub roof above the bed that creates a room-within-a-room effect. Macdonald carried the nature-inspired color palette into the bedroom, and included accents of pale amethyst to “give it a jewel box effect,” says the designer, who had a bed custom-made for the space and upholstered the headboard with a tactile fabric by Dedar. As in the master bedroom, Wade and Macdonald’s seamless working relationship is apparent throughout the house. Their holistic collaborative approach “creates projects where the interior design doesn’t overlay onto the architecture,” says Wade. “Instead, it becomes embedded within it.” Adds Macdonald: “When the interior materials, finishes

and furniture complement the architecture, the line between architecture and design is blurred.” Blurring the line between the house and its surroundings fell to landscape designer Claudia Schmidt, who incorporated a combination of boulders, native grasses, shrubs and perennials into the sloping property. “I used low grasses and perennials to give a meadow feel that left the house open to the view,” says Schmidt. “We also added native dogwood trees to parts of the existing forest for seasonal interest.” As for the owners, the guesthouse, which they’ve dubbed the cottage, is working out better for them than they could have imagined. “We prefer the smaller footprint, and it’s not so much to take on when we come and open it up,” says the wife. “It’s made us focus in on what you really need to live simply and comfortably.”

The dining area’s reclaimed-woodand-copper dining table was crafted by Statsky Design and is paired with chairs by McGuire. The banquette is upholstered with fabric by Perennials, and the Etienne ottomans by Gregorius Pineo were purchased at Kneedler-Fauchère. The light fixture is by Palmer Hargrave.

HISTORY LESSONS A STORIED 1920S RESIDENCE IN THE BERKELEY HILLS IS BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE WITH A BALANCE OF CAREFUL RESTORATIONS AND MINDFUL MODERN UPDATES. WRITTEN BY KIMBERLY OLSON PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID DUNCAN LIVINGSTON

W

hile perusing The Wall Street Journal one day, Stewart Owen spotted an intriguing house for sale. Perched in the Berkeley Hills, the home that caught his eye was a 1920s Mediterranean structure designed by renowned architect Willis Polk and built for local conservationist and real estate developer Duncan McDuffie. “The house had so much history,” says Stewart’s wife, Rachelle. The residence was well-known within the neighborhood, having been the site of numerous soirees and political fundraisers, but it had since fallen into disrepair. Seeing its potential, the Connecticut-based couple—who have roots in California—decided to step up to the challenge and purchase the house. Because the home had been mid-renovation, about half of it had been gutted to the studs, but some key spaces, including the grand entry hall and expansive living room, remained mostly intact, offering a glimpse of possibility. Stewart and Rachelle yearned to return the home to its romantic grandeur while still making it suitable for a modern lifestyle. With that concept in mind, they called on the talents of husband-and-wife architect team Andrew and Kerstin Fischer, plus the married designer duo of Georgina Rice and Suresh Mirchand, builder Gordon Olson and landscape architect David John Bigham to see things through. Kicking off the project, the architects took a thoughtful approach. “Our leaning was to preserve, protect and enhance,” says Kerstin Fischer, who, along with Andrew Fischer, studied old photographs and drawings of the house to get an idea of its original state. “We didn’t want to overwhelm the landmark building.” For the grand doubleheight entry, the architects added new finishes and a new front door but otherwise kept it just as it was. The central space leads into the dining room on one side and, on the other, the spacious living room, where the architects swapped the tile floor for one of white oak and restored and painted the ornate plaster and beamed ceiling. “This room is the most dramatic and defining element of the house,” says Kerstin Fischer. “We refreshed and lightened the materials to make it more welcoming.” Although the southern side of the house retains its original layout, the labyrinth-like spaces on the home’s north side were reconfigured and opened up to the gardens. The architects, who selected all of the finishes in the remodel, added folding doors to the existing dining room, so that

it now connects to a completely remodeled kitchen. “We oriented the kitchen so you could pass through it if you were out on that north side entertaining,” says Andrew Fischer. The kitchen flows into the newly created family room, and a new balcony connects both spaces to an updated library off the entry. “Before, this area was closed off with little windows, a little door and a small bay,” says Olson. “The balcony, stairs and glass are all brand-new but look like they belong there.” With the architecture complete, designers Mirchand and Rice were tasked with appointing the spaces in a manner that would honor the architecture and create a serene environment. “We combined modern pieces with more traditional designs to create a unified and welcoming look,” says Mirchand. In the main living room, the duo devised an ordered way of breaking up the capacious space. “The room is very long and wide,” Mirchand says. “So we created three different areas. Each vignette looks different, but they’re all related.” The designers—who also have a showroom in the San Francisco Design Center and a separate workroom— anchored the space with two custom sofas, which they positioned near the fireplace at the room’s center. “We built the two sofas in our workroom with high backs to have an enclosed and intimate feeling,” says Rice. A scroll-leg desk by Formations occupies one corner of the room, while a sophisticated game table fills another. For the dining room, the designers had custom metal cabinets made, and they selected furnishings to complement the updated library as well. For the latter, the duo designed a sofa with “the same curve as the fireplace,” Mirchand says of the piece, which provides a counterpoint to the floor-toceiling bookshelves. They then placed a hefty Rose Tarlow Melrose House table on one wall and paired it with industrial stools. Arched windows flood the room with light, which the designers augmented with curated fixtures, including Baker floor lamps. The architects installed walnut-clad bi-parting doors to section off an area of the room for a study, and the designers hung modern glass pendants to illuminate the space. Given the architecture’s new indoor-outdoor connections, the gardens became even more important. Originally part of a larger parcel that was master planned by University of California, Berkeley architect John Galen Howard, the property featured a south garden sited by Polk and landscaping designed by the famed Olmsted Brothers. While some original elements remained intact, much of the grounds had been changed, and all of it was terribly overgrown. Bigham aimed to “replicate, rebuild or reimagine” the grounds, which included restoring a pergola and collapsing stone walls, creating a historically accurate plant palette, and reviving the Olmsted water garden. “One of the happiest moments of the project for me was when we turned the pumps back on and heard the water,” he says. “It was like playing music from the past.” The collective work of the team resulted in the house, which was granted historic landmark status by the city of Berkeley, being returned to its original beauty. “People know and love that house,” Rice says. “It had fallen into a major state of disrepair, and the Owens were the perfect people to bring it back to life.”


Architects Andrew and Kerstin Fischer made strategic updates to a 1920s Berkeley home and retained key elements of the original structure. Builder Gordon Olson oversaw the construction, which included removing and repairing the entry stairwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original ironwork.


Designers Suresh Mirchand and Georgina Rice created welcoming interiors with a mix of modern and traditional pieces. In the grand living room, they paired custom sofas— upholstered in damask fabric by Hodsoll McKenzie—with armchairs from William Switzer’s Lucien Rollin collection. The coffee table is by Troscan Design & Furnishings, and the rug is from Tony Kitz Gallery.

AS K T HE EXPE RT What is your creative process? What is your favorite part of it? It’s important to me to get to know my clients and their families. Once I understand who they are, I’m able to create a home they will love. My favorite part of the process is the look on a client’s face when their vision is realized.

Kimberly Larzelere Founder and CEO San Francisco, California 415.946.0780 kimberly@klinteriors.com klinteriors.com

KIMBERLY LARZELERE INTERIORS INC Kimberly Larzelere’s early career as a kitchen designer led to the discovery of her ultimate passion: designing luxury residences in their entirety. Today, the designer is the owner of Kimberly Larzelere Interiors, an awardwinning firm servicing the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. “My work took me around the world, and I was lucky enough to be involved in some incredible projects,” she says. “I learned so much about construction and timelines, not to mention the beauty in other cultures. Over time, clients began to ask me to design more than their kitchens, and although I hadn’t initially planned to expand my specialty, it was a natural progression.” While she still enjoys designing kitchens, Larzelere finds satisfaction in working on the home as a whole. “I’m always on the hunt for unique items and ideas that express my client’s personality,” she says. Of her advice to homeowners, she says the key is to be involved in the project, whether providing a detailed plan or sharing images and impressions about the environment they envision. This is particularly important given the individuality of her local clientele. “My clients know and appreciate great quality and wish to surround themselves with timeless beauty,” she says. “I’ve also found them to be quite intelligent and original; they aren’t interested in run-of-the-mill, cookie-cutter designs, which is great, because I am not either!” Larzelere’s understanding of the region and its residents plays a role in her functional, beautiful and one-of-a-kind designs, which are each informed by an intuitive understanding of the homeowner’s needs and desires. A believer that luxury should be timeless, regardless of it being simple or ornate, Larzelere describes her aesthetic as “layers of luxurious, neutral textures and materials paired with bold modern art.”

TOP: This living room features bold, modern artwork and luxurious textures, offset by neutral tones and classic, tailored lines. BOTTOM: With its handmade wool and silk carpet, etched glass panels, modern light fixture and custom-made table, this dining room finds a sophisticated balance between function and elegance.

What are your favorite styles to work on and why? Right now I am attracted to the juxtaposition of modern art and more traditional environments or modern design with organic elements. How do you define a successful project? Success, to me, is measured entirely by the satisfaction of my clients. When they are thrilled with their new space, I’m happy with my work.

Brian Koch Founder and Principal Designer 139 Mitchell Avenue, Suite 220 San Francisco, California 650.952.5659 briankoch@tflandscapes.com tflandscapes.com

What is inspiring you now? Our current water situation is inspiring us to think beyond the typical large lawns and dense flower beds. We have to respect our natural resources and preserve them as much as possible. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Our work is always meant to be thoughtful and beautiful, with the client’s best interests at heart. The gardens should flow, connect and evoke amazing feelings. They should be recognizable as successful gardens.

TERRA FERMA LANDSCAPES Upon hearing Brian Koch describe his favorite plant, the landscape architect’s fervor for his trade becomes evident. “I love designing and growing espaliered apple and pear trees in our gardens,” he says. “They are beautiful, produce sweeter fruit and are shaped in a classic form originally found in European gardens.” Founded in 1993, Terra Ferma Landscapes began in the back of Koch’s mother’s station wagon after he discovered his passion through a six-month stint as a gardener at Filoli in Woodside. Today, the firm has grown to encompass a knowledgeable and responsible staff that designs, implements and maintains stunning gardens throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. “Our goal is to deliver an exceptional product, customer service and full accountability,” Koch says. “We deeply care about going the extra mile for our clients. The best part is getting to know them and their site and seeing how we can tap into all that potential. If we get them closer to their happy place, we are successful.” Most recently, Koch and his team have been working on a multitude of ground-up projects, something he identifies as a favored occurrence. “We don’t often get involved early enough,” he says. “We can bring a lot to the table for the homeowners and architects at those early stages.” Yet, Koch notes that when it comes to remodels, waiting to begin the landscape well after completion can be beneficial, reducing stress and allowing creative juices to refresh. “Put the landscape on pause for three to 12 months after a remodel,” he advises. “Landscape execution is often at the tail end of a project, and clients are burned out by the lengthy process.”

BRIAN FLEGEL FLEGEL’S INTERIOR DESIGN & DISTINCTIVE HOME FURNISHINGS 870 Santa Cruz Avenue Menlo Park, California 650.326.9661 flegel@flegels.com flegels.com Brian Flegel’s passion for his company, Flegel’s Interior Design & Distinctive Home Furnishings, is evident upon hearing him speak of its history. “We are coming into our 63rd year as a family-owned business,” he says. “Arthur Flegel, my grandfather, founded the company in 1954; by the mid-1970s, Mark, my father, was running it; I have been managing it since 2006; and River Clay Flegel, my son, has been coming into work since early 2015.” With nine of California’s most established interior designers on staff and access to the world’s best fabric, window treatments, furnishings and accessories, Flegel’s offers its clients, whether homeowners or trade professionals, the option of designing their own piece. “We are committed to service and long-lasting, meaningful relationships with our clients,” Flegel says.

Our personality is a mixture of confidence, fashion-forward thinking, mindfulness and art.

What are the key influences in your work today? Primarily the high-end, transitional, American interior design trends. How do you stay abreast of new trends and styles? We go to High Point Market (the mecca for manufacturers of American-made furnishings) in the spring and fall of every year. We discover where the high-end market is going in terms of design, fabrics, colors, etc. Who or what inspires you most? Milo Baughman, Gustav and Leopold Stickley, Harvey Ellis, Barbara Barry, Jacques Garcia, Thomas Pheasant, Bill Sofield, Kara Mann and Jean-Louis Deniot. What projects have brought you the most satisfaction and why? Creating a living space that becomes a reflection and continuation of a client’s life and understanding of art. What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? Introducing a client to a fresh and relevant style that complements their evolving life, which fosters a strong relationship. What are your favorite hobbies? We each have a connection to genealogy and history, so our hobbies connect to those through curating our personal collections.

Thayer Coggin, a premier furniture company and one of the first manufacturers of midcentury modern furniture, is on display in the Flegel's showroom.

HOME BUILDERS + REMODELERS

JOE AND JOEY TOBONI THE TOBONI GROUP 3364 Sacramento Street San Francisco, California 415.359.9842 joey@tobonigroup.com thetobonigroup.com What began with Joe Toboni taking on small projects to fulfill his passion for creative and critical thinking is now a multisegmented business that builds and reconstructs high-end single-family homes, mixed-use buildings and larger multiunit residences. Today, Joe is joined by Joey Toboni, and together they strive to create structures that bring inspiration to their inhabitants. In sharing the core of their beliefs and soul of their brand, the Tobonis note the connection between two aspects of their lives. “From a work perspective, we have an unrelenting commitment to our clients, a respect for those with whom we work and a strong sense of product integrity. From a personal perspective, we are aware of our blessings and feel an obligation to raise our hands on behalf of those who are underrepresented in our community.”

We achieve success when we complete a flawless project despite the most challenging atmosphere. Anyone can do the easy ones.

How would you describe the personality of your business? The principles we adhere to personally are the same we expect of those with whom we work: hard work, accountability, preparation and a perpetual commitment. We also like to have a little fun along the way. How do you stay abreast of new trends and styles? Intellectual curiosity. We are constantly meeting with architects, designers and engineers to collaborate. We go to fabrication shops and seminars to learn about new materials and systems. Knowledge is king. What is one thing your clients would be shocked to know about you? Our family is doing some pretty cool and interesting things. Collectively we have started new companies and worked in medicine, international journalism, real estate, television and professional sports. What do you like most about your job? Each day new challenges arise. Whether it’s navigating political bureaucracy for entitlement, solving construction issues or coming up with a unique design concept, no day is like another. What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? We want every home and building to have its own narrative that everyone who enters the space can appreciate.

This custom plaster tracery ceiling has a high-sheen finish. The fireplace surround was hand-carved from a solid piece of stone. This room was one of many focal points in a 7,000-square-foot remodel.

What are your favorite hobbies? Both of us spend a large percentage of our free time doing charitable work. We are both on the board of directors for nonprofit organizations in San Francisco, and we mentor youth from the area’s most underserved neighborhoods.

TRANSCENDING

TIME

“ANY GREAT WORK OF ART REVIVES AND READAPTS TIME AND SPACE.” THIS STATEMENT MADE BY COMPOSER LEONARD BERNSTEIN REMINDS US THAT INNOVATION IS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT REINVENTING THE WHEEL, BUT, AT TIMES, REFASHIONING CLASSICS TO FIT OUR MODERN LIVES. THIS SENTIMENT CERTAINLY RINGS TRUE TODAY—PARTICULARLY EVERY TIME THE BIENNALE DES ANTIQUAIRES ROLLS INTO PARIS. THIS SEPTEMBER, THE CELEBRATED ANTIQUES FAIR OBSERVES ITS 28TH ITERATION, PROVING THAT WHILE WE EMBRACE THE MODERN WORLD, OUR FASCINATION WITH CLASSIC STYLE AND DESIGN, AS EXEMPLIFIED IN THE ELEGANT PIECES SHOWN HERE, CONTINUES TO STAND THE TEST OF TIME.
