EDITOR’S LETTER

Napping to NAPKINS As we were shaping this issue, with a focus on entertaining, I spent several weekends luxuriating in the art of doing nothing. My most taxing Sunday activity was deciding between sleeping in and binge-watching shows. Monday through Friday, the editors and I were bantering about the merits of plate chargers, reviewing pics of high-gloss butler’s pantries and exchanging secrets for throwing fabulous dinner parties. Meanwhile, on the weekend, I was idling away. It was a short run…

Pamela Jaccarino, Editor in Chief @pamelajaccarino

PORTRAIT: LAURA BARISONZI.

One Saturday, after lingering in my pajamas well past 11 a.m., on a whim, I invited friends over for cocktails and supper. Apparently the epic “to-place-card-or-not” editor debate that week had knocked me out of my lull. I ran to the market and picked up loads of dahlias, branzino, Japanese sweet potatoes and asparagus. Friends were tasked with bringing appetizers and dessert, affording me time to iron our vintage tablecloth, polish the Georg Jensen silverware and set the table with my favorite Pillivuyt Perle dinnerware. Place cards were swapped for individual handwritten inspiration notes at each seat. Much popping of wine corks, lively conversation and dancing ensued. It was as pleasurable as a midday bubble bath followed by a proper nap. Entertaining, for me, releases the same endorphins as, well, loafing. I encourage all of you to carve out “nothing time” this holiday season; all the better to enjoy the revelry that surely will follow.

WEDGWOOD TAPS CERAMICIST HITOMI HOSONO FOR ITS FIRST-EVER ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

T

en years ago, when Japanese ceramicist Hitomi Hosono was an intern at the Wedgwood factory in Staffordshire, England, she would happily while away hours in the company’s archives looking at old molds, or sprigs, as they are called. A nature lover at heart, she was particularly drawn to the botanical ones with imprints of delicate leaves and petals, resembling long-lost fossils. “I was always fascinated by organic forms: the veins of a leaf, the shape of its edges and the layering of a flower’s petals,” says Hosono. Those sprigs left an impression, for her ceramic explorations over the next decade took on rich, plant-like textures inspired by many of the motifs she encountered. It’s a thoroughly fitting twist, then, that she’s returned to the place where it all started as Wedgwood’s inaugural artist-in-residence, the first such program in the company’s 250-year history. “There was always a synergy between what we wanted as a brand and what Hitomi was doing independently,” says Dik Delaney, global design director for Wedgwood. “The artisan program is about driving innovation back into the Wedgwood brand through pushing the creative boundaries of the painters and craftspeople at the factories.” Hosono’s vision certainly succeeds on that front: Her pieces incorporate new techniques of raised ornamentation, intricate layering and delicate carving, even piercing holes in the clay. The end result honors the Wedgwood tradition while moving the brand’s jasperware in a fresh direction. Invented by Josiah Wedgwood in 1774, the unglazed vitreous stoneware takes its name from jasper, the natural stone it resembles. Over the years, the pottery has been made in many colors, but is most recognized worldwide for its Wedgwood blue pieces, which are adorned with hand-applied bas-relief scenes of neoclassical

or botanical motifs. For this limited-edition collection, Hosono tweaked the color palette, opting for pastel washes that conjure wagashi, the elaborate confections served in Japanese tea houses. She even reinvented one of the brand’s most iconic pieces, the Portland vase, keeping the Grecian urn form but trading in the traditional blue color and frolicking nymphs for a cheerful aqua hue embellished with fern fronds. Prunus leaves, chrysanthemums and daisies

climb, float and sway on the surface of the other pieces. “Naturally, I was drawn to the shapes of flowers and plants I knew from my childhood in Japan,” says Hosono, who grew up in an area she describes as the Stoke-on-Trent of Japan, a region known for its pottery trade. It’s no wonder she gravitated toward those 100-year-old sprigs in the Wedgwood archives. “The details of the molds reflect a great respect for nature; I wanted these pieces to honor that,” she says.

FEAST IN RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD, MAXIMALIST INTERIORS ARE OUTSHINING THE ARTFULLY PLATED DISHES, PROVING THAT WHEN IT COMES TO DESIGN, MORE IS INDEED MORE.

Whether you dine out on the regular or just do a quick scroll through culinary destinations on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that restaurants aren’t the austere, minimalist temples of cuisine they used to be. Gone are the neutral palettes and quiet finishes that telegraphed seriousness and placed the focus on the food. In recent years, designers have taken an I’ll-haveeverything-on-the-menu approach to restaurant interiors that reflects a greater trend toward maximalism. Both Martin Brudnizki’s lavish revamp of Annabel’s private club in Mayfair, and the Glade at Sketch London represent the movement at its full-tilt, over-the-top best. Artist, designer and photographer Carolyn Quartermaine says she was given carte blanche to create the surreal, Technicolor forest interior at the Glade. “The design encourages the eye to weave in and out, never settling, and this allows the mind to dream,” she says. “For us, it’s more installation than decoration.” Designers on these shores are taking a subtler, but no less ornamental approach. For the Pink Cabana at the Sands Hotel in Indian Wells, California, Martyn Lawrence Bullard combined a mélange of Moroccan, midcentury and preppy motifs to create an eclectic,

feels more bespoke, distinct and interesting: “If you create a truly individual experience, people get excited about design again and become inspired,” he says.

old-school country-club vibe. Conjuring a sense of place through layering is essential to Bullard’s process. “It’s about escapism. You’re creating a fantasy you wouldn’t necessarily experience anywhere else, so there’s not only a memory of the food, but also the memory of the environment,” he says. Los Angeles-based designer Matt Winter shares a similar ideology: “Life is hard— sometimes you need to hit pause, get out of your headspace and enjoy your surroundings for a little while, and the best design accomplishes that,” he says. One of his recent projects, the tiki-themed Lono in Hollywood, is a mash-up of South Pacific and French Colonial influences that leaves almost no surface in the bar area unadorned. Designer Daniel Alonso of the Bonhomme Hospitality Group took a similar tack when concepting the Chicago boite Beatnik, which mixes Moorish, Mediterranean and Balinese elements in an ornate setting indicative of its bohemian theme. “I think people today gravitate toward places that evoke a sense of history,” says Winter. “A lot of major hospitality groups are using designers who understand layering, and create spaces that are unique, and feel rich and lived in. It’s an antidote to the white glass boxes of the past,” he says. “Minimalist interiors can sometimes feel homogenous,” says Bullard. “A space could read the same in London, Paris, New York or Palm Springs.” By contrast, maximalist design

ith a background creating sculptural pieces and ceramics, it is no surprise that David Kaihoi would look to the interior design world for his next artistic pursuit. After moving to New York City more than 10 years ago and installing fine art pieces for interior designers, such as Miles Redd, Kaihoi’s passion for the creative expanded into a full-fledged love affair with decorating. Here, Luxe gets the scoop on the artistic inspiration behind his latest collaboration with luxury floor coverings manufacturer Patterson Flynn Martin. It’s not every day that you see metal used as a rug material. Tell us about this collection and how your art inspired it. Similar to my artwork, where I have a penchant for mixing materials, I set out on this journey not knowing where it would end up. Instead of working with pattern, I added metal plates, which was a departure for Patterson Flynn Martin, and the result is a multifunctional modern tapestry of sorts. The juxtaposing tactile combination of mediums as a decorative gesture is extremely interesting and highly unexpected. We love the interplay of neutral tones and textures. The materials are as raw and simple as they can be. Both the wool yarn—which was so fresh that it smelled like a country barn—and unfinished metal are as elemental as you can get, so there is a certain kind of purity to the pieces that I wanted to maintain. Not a single dye, paint or synthetic adornment was used, and that simplicity makes it approachable. What influenced the

“I’ve worked with metal before, but never in combination with a soft, woven textile,” says artist and interior designer David Kaihoi of his latest collaboration with Patterson Flynn Martin. Matriarch, shown here, is one of Kaihoi’s favorite pieces in the collection.

collection’s battle-like names, such as Highly Decorated and Breastplate? While I wasn’t beholden to designing anything traditional, this creation, for me, was grounded in historical precedent relating to suits of armor. The Arms and Armor section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is fascinating and showcases intricate metalwork on top of woven garments, so I was trying to achieve that exquisite blend of materials with a contemporary sensibility. Favorite piece? I appreciate them all, however I love Matriarch (shown above), because

there is something appealing and powerful, yet soft about it too. It has a beautiful, strong soul that is so inviting; you’re drawn to touch it and experience its comfortability. How do the worlds of art and interior design relate to one another? The best part of being an artist is experimentation and the pursuit of the unknown. And alternatively, as a designer, it’s about creating with a real purpose in mind. Together, they offer the opportunity to make something new that’s inspirational with a personal, original perspective.

RADAR / LASTING IMPRESSION

BEST in CLASS THIS SEASON, GIVE THE GIFT OF EXPERIENCE WITH IMMERSIVE ONE-OF-A-KIND WORKSHOPS. WRITTEN BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH

Unwrapping a pretty bow-adorned present can be a pleasurable yet fleeting moment, so why not think beyond the gift box for the holidays this year? According to a study at the University of Toronto, experiential gifts, such as classes or workshops, elicit emotional responses that strengthen the relationship between the giver and recipient, making lasting memories. The following experiences are at the top of our wish list.

CORE CURRICULUM ⊲

▼ TOP CHEF Italian-American chef Giuliano Hazan has a rich ancestry steeped in Italian food and wine. His mother, Marcella, was credited with introducing the United States and United Kingdom to classic Italian cooking. Now an accomplished cookbook author himself, Hazan has taken to teaching the craft around the world. Along with his wife, Lael, and expert winemaker Marilisa Allegrini, the chef leads a weeklong immersive workshop in Italian cuisine at the historic 16th-century Villa della Torre near Verona, Italy. In addition to hands-on cooking classes, the experience includes trips to food markets, the Allegrini family vineyards, a historic mill where risotto rice is processed, a caseifici where Parmigiano-Reggiano is made and an olive press. After all, you can’t have Italian cooking without wine, cheese and olive oil. guilianohazan.com

▲ LOVE POTION Borrow an idea from the Brits: Grab your closest pal and take a trip to Provence to create bespoke fragrances for an unmatched sensory sensation—in recent years it’s become a popular girlfriends’ getaway in Great Britain. Travel to La Villa Du Parfumeur in the perfume capital of the world, Grasse, France, to learn from the olfactory experts at the distinguished Maison Molinard, a family business established in 1849. Engage your senses in a scent session where you test 100 essences to find your very own curated combination.

CELLAR NOTES THE PRISONER WINE COMPANY

Brought to reality by architect Matt Hollis and designer Richard Von Saal, The Prisoner Wine Company’s complex includes a tasting lounge and The Makery with five on-site studios serving artisan-in-residence programs. Skylights illuminate every room, while Von Saal’s design is a nod to the winery’s jail-inspired theme. “The emotion of the brand lingers across the slatted wood walls of the space, intriguing visitors with bubbled mirrors, macramé ropes and tasting ‘cells,’˜” Von Saal says. Guests can book four different experiences—from a sampling of four of The Prisoner Wine Company vintages to a wine-and-food pairing prepared by the chef. theprisonerwinecompany.com

making a CONNECTION For more than 30 years, architect Charles R. Stinson has imagined homes that emphasize harmony within nature. With a style influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, his work celebrates the balance between the shelter of indoor spaces and the freedom of the outdoors. In his latest book, Connections, Stinson shares the stories of 15 projects and each client’s journey to achieve the ideal living space. charlesrstinson.com What was the inspiration behind Connections? My wife, Carol, noticed a connection among our clients. Most of them are self-made entrepreneurs, so they look beyond the obvious and conventional. They have faith in unseen potential and are able to put energy and resources toward ideas and concepts. These homeowners share an approach to life that makes their stories, and homes, so interesting. How does the sense of place shape your architecture? Every project starts with spending time on the property at different times of day. Then I start defining spaces, keeping in mind nature, the views and the variance of natural light from sunrise to sunset and in different seasons. I make sure every room has sunlight, but that there is still a sense of shelter in the home. I also incorporate clerestory windows and hidden drapery pockets for privacy. There’s something great about being able to go into a different environment and celebrate that area. I try to use local materials, so if trees have to come down on-site, we’ll lumber them and use the wood as flooring.

ON VIEW

“THE WORLD OF CHARLES AND RAY EAMES” The Eames name has become synonymous with iconic furniture, but the dynamic designing duo behind the California-born Eames Office goes far beyond the functional, everyday pieces they’re known for. This show at the Oakland Museum of California honors the legacy of two of the most influential designers and marks the final stop for the traveling exhibition, comprising more than 380 works including multimedia installations, intimate photographs and rare prototypes. Standouts include Ray’s untitled plywood sculpture that served as inspiration for the Eames’s plywood furniture (shown) and a presentation of the newly restored film Glimpses of the U.S.A. And because play was such an important source of inspiration for the couple, the show features two workshop spaces for hands-on experimentation. museumca.org

How did your interest in art lead you to architecture? Growing up, I thought I was going to be an artist. Then, in high school I took architecture classes and appreciated the technical side of it. Architecture was a way to create functional art. Today, art still influences my work—all my designs start by hand on a wooden drawing board I got when I was 14. 100 / LUXESOURCE.COM

INSIDE EDITION

“It’s not so much of a trend but a retrenching of the idea of quality first. Collectors are seeking the best work possible. This is something that actually started a while ago. Rather than look for a name, they want a piece of quality work by an artist. As for who is catching my eye, I enjoy the work of artist Harold Ancart, who recently signed with David Zwirner.” –CHIP TOM, HEATHER JAMES FINE ART SAN FRANCISCO

“There has been a definite uptick in interest and demand for artwork by people that work in centers such as Creativity Explored. It signals a divergence from the buying of art as a place to park one’s money—the wall as a placeholder for investments. Instead, more collectors are now purchasing ‘outsider’ art and trusting their own heart and gut.” –JACK FISCHER, JACK FISCHER GALLERY

“I think Brion Nuda Rosch is doing such an exceptional job managing the artist studios at Minnesota Street Project. He’s constantly coming up with new ways to serve the community, giving artists access to studio tools and partial use of the spaces here. He always thinks outside the box, and the artists in San Francisco are better for it.›” –ELEANOR HARWOOD, ELEANOR HARWOOD GALLERY

“Our location in the heart of Silicon Valley is a nice connection with the technologically focused artists that Pace works with. The respective fields of art and tech are changing rapidly, and the confluence of the two is opening up exciting new possibilities not dissimilar to the start-up ideas that were pioneered here. We hope art and tech will continue to influence each other in fascinating and challenging new ways.”

“I’m intrigued by Berlinbased Syrian artist Tammam Azzam, whose painterly collages translate the shock of war-torn Damascus into something sublime. Also, I would love to see Christina Quarles’ upcoming exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum. This young Yale grad is already an accomplished painter and definitely someone to watch.”

BLUEPRINT THE AVERY

SoMa has become San Francisco’s mecca for high-tech and luxury condominiums. Now The Avery is adding even more sparkle to the city skyline with its 56-story glass tower and 118 condos offering panoramic views of the bay. Designed by Rem Koolhaas’ Pritzker Prize-awarded Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), the striking glass façade tapers at angles as it rises 618 feet into the sky. The ground floor lures with limestone and bronze details, and the one-, two- and three-bedroom residences—plus a collection of penthouses—feature floor-toceiling windows in every room, many of which overlook the new Salesforce Tower nearby. Clodagh Design created nature-inspired interiors using textured woods and natural stones, including wideplank oak flooring, hand-selected Michelangelo marble for kitchen counters and Cristallo Pearl marble counters in the master bathrooms. “The Avery’s interiors were shaped by the Bay Area’s magnificent natural attractions, from the redwoods to the ocean,” said Clodagh. “Each finish was carefully selected to connect people to nature.” Miele appliances, Kaldewei soaking tubs and Dornbracht fixtures complement the feng shui-influenced design with luxury touches. Avery Lane, a neighborhood paseo lined with upscale dining and retail partners, anchors the building and connects residents to the surrounding community. Move-ins will begin as early as mid-2019. theaverysf.com 102 / LUXESOURCE.COM

▲ BOUCLÉ Although she’s lived in Paris, Italy and Buenos Aires, Argentina, Schauleh Vivian Sahba draws inspiration for her textile designs from her beloved home base in San Francisco. Taking cues from both natural beauty and the energy of city life, she creates colorful patterns painted by hand using watercolors or digitally designed using skills she learned at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. “I’m drawn to work that is somewhat abstract, imperfect or somehow reveals the work of the human hand,” she says. “I think harmony is in the eye of the beholder, and I like to create it in unusual ways.” Sahba develops fabrics to be used in apparel, accessories and home goods for clients like Athleta, Pottery Barn and Tart Collections, producing everything from upholstery fabric to window coverings to children’s bedding and women’s apparel. Look out for furniture-making workshops this winter. bouclesf.com 104 / LUXESOURCE.COM

At its core, Coyuchi is about allowing its organic fibers to take center stage. The Point Reyesbased company uses the finestquality materials for its luxurious line of linens, throws and apparel in a coastal-inspired palette of blues, grays and other natural hues. “The colors, tactile softness and raw beauty of coastal lands inform our design process,” says CEO Eileen Mockus. “From the sun-washed cliffs of Big Sur to the misty East Hampton beaches, we bring an easy elegance to each piece.” Coyuchi is also committed to the environment, using eco-friendly Biosoft technology that eliminates the need for harsh chemicals when processing materials and partnering with Fibershed to launch climate-beneficial wool. The company’s forthcoming Spring 2019 collection will feature color blocks, geometric patterns and new striped sheeting. coyuchi.com

Berkeley designer Erica Tanov has been a presence on the Bay Area design scene for more than 20 years. Known for an organic, earthy aesthetic, she looks to nature for inspiration and translates those motifs into hand-drawn patterns and fabrics. For Tanov, a floral bouquet becomes fodder for silk dresses, cotton quilts and pillowcases, while fern fronds make their way onto wallpaper. “With nature being a constant undercurrent of inspiration for my collections, I’ve recently developed a kaleidoscopic print created from a portion of a vintage botanical drawing,” she says. The current fall collection is hugely textural, recalling the grandeur of ancient palaces visited on a recent trip to India. Pewter-coated cotton and hints of metallic are reminiscent of the grand fort in Jodhpur, India, and intricate hand-embroidery nods to the carved marble of the Taj Mahal. This winter, Tanov will debut her first perfume and launch a metal tile collection in collaboration with Clé Tile. ericatanov.com

As he removed sand from his pieces (each one begins as a solid block of bonded sand), the material accumulated in his studio creating a desert-like ambience.

INDUSTRY FIRSTS: WHY FLEETWOOD IS FOREMOST

THE MARK OF THE MAKER

FLEETWOOD WINDOWS & DOORS

1980s: Fleetwood designed the first luxury residential multi-slide door. Early 2000s: Fleetwood designed the first 3-inch tandem sliding door roller. Since then, the design has been copied on a wide scale. 2010s: Fleetwood earned patents for its Archetype hardware, followed by dozens of designs of additional proprietary hardware components.

1

2015: Fleetwood designed the first luxury residential flush sill, high-performing, selfcontained subterranean drainage system for sliding doors, known as the Sub-Sillpan. 2018: Fleetwood brought the Series 4070-T to market with the first luxury residential flush sill with certified water performance and inset finished flooring. In 2019 + Beyond: Fleetwood is introducing the first luxury residential water performing pivot door.

Our milestones, several patents, and impressive selection of proprietary designs speak to the close control, attention to detail, and demand for excellence that exemplifies our approach to design.

In 1961, Fleetwood was established with the purpose of making the industry’s best sliding door in Southern California. Fait accompli for the innovative company, known for its highly customized, elegantly engineered, beautiful windows and doors that last a lifetime. Devoted solely to the luxury home market, Fleetwood lives and works by two credos: “build it better, not cheaper” and “always innovative, often imitated.” With these in mind, the Fleetwood team works hand in hand with the architectural community, responding to their wants and needs for clients with groundbreaking, midcentury modern designs that blur the line between inside and out, perfectly. “Once we have taken on a design or development, our creative process entails expansive collaboration across all major departments within the company,” Chief Operations Officer Mark McCoy says. “It’s this type of collaboration that encourages a culture of idea sharing; something that is vital to our ability to engineer the very best products.” Set to release four new products over the next few months, with plans to release an additional one to two products per year, Fleetwood continues its trajectory of success. 2

LUTRON ELECTRONICS At Lutron, innovation is at its core. In the late 1950s, inventor, entrepreneur and business magnate Joel Spira forever changed the lighting control industry with his innovative, modern, electronic, solid-state dimmer—altering the way people look at light. This humble device was deceptively simple … and it was beautiful. For Lutron, this solid-state dimmer established a legacy of scientific prowess and design distinction, earning both admiration and trust. Beautifully curated lighting scenes require more than just control of electric light, so in 1993, Lutron entered the automated window covering industry, transforming expectations with the ultra-quiet, high-performance shade. Today, more than 55 years later, Lutron delivers beautiful, industry-leading lighting, shades, and temperature control solutions for the home. Enter Palladiom, an entirely new design collection of keypads and shades, one that redefines the norms of technology, craftsmanship and style—all hallmarks of Lutron’s years of innovation. In the creation of Palladiom, Lutron demanded no less than rethinking the engineering process, inventing new tools, new treatments, and insisting on higher standards of quality. As a result, Lutron challenged its entire supply chain, and the company, giving rise to a line of picture-perfect devices to fine-tune any environment.

WHERE HANDCRAFTSMANSHIP MEETS HIGH-TECH DESIGN Lutron takes great pride in innovation, with product design and user experience being top of mind. For many Lutron products, this keen attention to detail requires precision and handcrafted finishes. One example is the company’s beautiful new Palladiom keypads and shade brackets, which are hand-finished to ensure a delicate and uniform texture. Additionally, Lutron’s custom shading solutions are manufactured entirely by hand, with experts meticulously inspecting all shades before being shipped to customers. Materials make the difference in Lutron’s products, too. The Palladiom shade brackets, for example, are meticulously hand-finished and robust enough to support a 12-by-12-foot shade with a remarkably slim 3-inch profile. Additionally, Lutron collaborates with the world’s leading textile mills to provide fabrics for all shade styles, giving customers high-performance shades that accentuate any decor.

THE MARK OF THE MAKER

VITROCSA For window and door innovator, Vitrocsa, it’s all about the view … opening up spaces and bringing as much light as possible into the structure. The inventor of the first sliding door system (still the most installed product in the world), Vitrocsa continues to make a name for itself with frameless window designs that boast the narrowest sightline barriers in the world. It’s a feat accomplished by inventor and Vitrocsa founder, Eric Joray, who lives and works by the credo, “Never do anything that others know how to do.” Taking an artisan approach, Joray applies his watchmaking experience to every design, relying on his dedicated and motivated staff to bring his creations to life. “They live and breathe Vitrocsa products as if they were their own,” he says. “The fact that these successes are a collective effort, but still allow for individual autonomy, ensures that everyone feels they are personal successes.” While some inventions develop from the improvement of existing products, others evolve as a solution to an architectural need. Take British architect Norman Foster, who wanted to be able to open up the windows on a terrace so that the leaves were concealed. Vitrocsa responded by custom-developing the Turnable Corner system, which has become one of its flagship products. “Our systems are the product of unrivaled expertise and a constant quest for innovation, enabling us to meet the most ambitious architectural visions,” Joray says.

We constantly innovate; we have patents; we always imagine new solutions. It is an engine and what sets us apart from competitors. We have years of experience that some have yet to acquire, and Swiss knowhow that is our strength.

FLORAL FARMS AT A COUNTRY HOME DESIGNED BY STEVEN GAMBREL, GARDEN AND LIFESTYLE BRAND TERRAIN SETS THE SCENE FOR ENTERTAINING. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATHRYN GIVEN / PHOTOGRAPHY BY HELEN NORMAN

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

Foxfire, the bucolic 127-acre farm in the rolling hills of Maryland’s Harford County, holds a special place in Steven Gambrel’s design portfolio: It happens to belong to his best friends. It’s also a residence the designer frequents in the fall and winter months when the region partakes in traditional equestrian events and festivities making this an ideal spot for hosting get-togethers. Because this kitchen is a true workhorse in every sense of the word and one of the most heavily used areas of the home, Gambrel made sure to prioritize both form and function. The New York-based interior designer is a true master when it comes to creating beautiful, elegant and layered kitchens. This space, which was completely gutted and reimagined, is no different. srgambrel.com; foxfiremonkton.com Where did you begin when designing this kitchen? First, I surveyed the space and determined that we needed to significantly renovate it. The day begins and ends in this kitchen, and the morning light is particularly beautiful here. So, I thought about where the sunlight is best and this is where I positioned the sink. From there, I looked at the functionality of the room which, in this case, is to serve, so I wanted to make sure dishes and glasses could be seen and accessed quickly and easily. Eliminating upper cabinets helps aesthetically with the airiness of the space, but it also makes the function of it immediately apparent because everything is visible. Tell us about your approach to texture. The clients were looking for more neutral interiors; it was fun to rethink this kitchen in terms of texture instead of color. I love big, thick stone, so I put the countertops through a heating process called sweating that makes the surface beautifully uneven but still smooth and creates a patina of sorts. The cabinets are cyrus oak, which has a gorgeous finish but is very durable. I’m always thinking about materials that will be the easiest to live with and use. How is the adjoining storage room used? This area holds the silver and decorative dishes for serving in the formal dining room—we allude to this space as the servery. Food is also laid out here for more casual evenings, but many nights center around big dinners and having friends over in the dining room. I transformed this smaller space into a pretty open room that has a very calming spirit, especially with the silver wall.


“We wanted to make this space feel lush for welcoming guests,” says Terrain’s art director Laura Harris Twilley of this Monkton, Maryland kitchen designed by Steven Gambrel. To do so, she populated the table with amaryllis bulbs, paperwhites and topiaries. A garland intertwined with eucalyptus and china berries surrounds the tableau and the Vulcan range is original to the house.

In keeping with the light and airy feeling of the dining nook, Terrain used chartreuse lemon cypress topiaries mixed with clump moss, hypericum berries and pine straw in a trough planter on the table while a variegated vine wraps around the pendant light. Chairs by Mrs. Howard frame the custom banquette seating.

According to Grubb, a home’s value will appreciate 15 to 20 percent based on its proximity to local coffee shops. He calls this “the coffee effect,” and points to West Oakland, Temescal, Rockridge, Piedmont, Elmwood and Kensington as areas where popular communities have been built up around cafe culture.

As a renowned real estate professional and the president of The Grubb Company, he understands the importance of perceptions. Together with John Karnay and Robert Belzer, the firm’s CFO and vice president, respectively, Grubb helps buyers and sellers throughout the East Bay area. Here, quality of life, good schools, proximity to San Francisco and relative affordability attract home buyers with everything they could want in an up-andcoming market. “Most of our inventory was built between 1920 and 1950, so we also have a lot of architectural significance to offer,” Grubb says. Asked to share his personal favorite type of property to sell, he points to a version of home that many modern-day buyers are seeking. “I like the in-town, single-family compounds,” he says. “They might have a cottage or studio for music or art in addition to the main residence.” When he isn’t working the real estate scene, Grubb can be found engaging in hobbies that seem apt to inform this predilection for creative spaces: painting and playing guitar. 510.339.0400 | grubbco.com

PAST 4 PERFECT When San Francisco-based designer Holly Hollenbeck set out to design the dining room of her 1901 Edwardian home, her goal was to preserve its vintage heritage while integrating modern touches. “Visualizing how the space was originally used was key in bringing the room back to its former life,” she says. An 11-foot-long antique English table centers the space and provides a refined setting for entertaining friends and family. To contrast with the original details such as the herringbone-patterned floor and oak wainscoting, Hollenbeck added graphic wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa, a custom-designed chandelier and Milo Baughman chairs. The result is an inviting combination of history and personality. hsh-interiors.com

RAISED BAR

Artisans Zelouf & Bell describe their furniture as “poetic pieces with resonance, mystery and secrets, evoking wild cocktail parties past.” Judging from the bubblegum-pink-and-brass Stones in a Pond liquor cabinet, seen here, that description seems apt—the doors open to reveal pale-blond sycamore storage with leather-lined drawers and an ivory shagreen bar top. Much of the duo’s work is one-of-a-kind, featuring luxe design details such as reflective lacquer finishes, aged brass, detailed marquetry and mother-of-pearl inlay, just to name a few. Pieces are made by hand in their workshop in Ireland, where they helm the creative process from inception to finished product. zeloufandbell.com

SHEA + LAUREN DUNIGAN Floordesign Rugs 25 Rhode Island Street San Francisco, California 415.626.1005 lauren@floordesignrugs.com caviarrugs.com Floordesign Rugs has been helping designers make their creative visions a reality since 1979. New owner Shea Dunigan and her daughter, Lauren, are redefining the rug shopping experience. Their newly remodeled showroom, located in the heart of the San Francisco Design District, features exquisite modern and traditional, hand-knotted rugs. The second and third generation of women in their family to be involved in the rug business, Shea and Lauren are now launching their own brand, Caviar Rugs. “The rugs in the Gold Collection are truly extravagant, featuring hand-carded wool and pure silk,” Shea says. Lauren adds, “Caviar Rugs aims to introduce an elevated level of luxury to the market.” The new line made its debut in late October, at the Floordesign showroom.

Caviar Rugs aims to introduce an elevated level of luxury to the market. Design inspirations? Shea: Art. Creating rugs is the way I transform my passion for abstract art into a platform for design. I enjoy a rug the most when it evokes an emotion. Our colors and designs are carefully curated, just like art. What’s the key to work/life balance? Shea: I started working with my mom 24 years ago. She would always say, ‘As long as you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.’ I’ve passed that on to my daughter. Our work is our life, and there’s really no separation between the two. Motto you live by? We’ve always believed in treating others as we would want to be treated. That’s why we do everything possible to make our clients feel special. Our team assists with every part of the endeavor, from one-on-one consultations to complimentary final installation. One thing your clients would be shocked to know about you? Shea: I don’t know how shocking it is, but I wear heels to work every single day. Victoria Beckham once said, ‘I can’t concentrate in flats.’ I find this quote so relatable. Plus, I think they look great on a rug. Standout projects? The Gold Collection features this season’s color palette, which blends grays and taupes with accents of blush, saturated teal and, of course, gold. We’re using these with a variety of natural fibers to create unique textures. Each rug is a distinctive creation like no other. What elements characterize your work?

STYLE EVOLUTION A FAMILY MAKES A FRESH START IN A PENINSULA HOME THAT REFLECTS BOTH OLD AND NEW.

WRITTEN BY MINDY PANTIEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL DYER

LUXESOURCE.COM / 211


In the entry of this Peninsula home, architect Richard Beard designed a curving staircase with a metal railing by Handcrafted Metals Inc. as a counterpoint to the limestone walls and floors from Maidenstone. Designer Kelly Hohla selected a pair of wall sconces from De Sousa Hughes.


K

elly Hohla is a designer who considers her options and leaves nothing to chance. So, when her clients began creating their dream home on the San Francisco Peninsula, she studied everything carefully. For example, when the couple wanted a turquoise La Cornue stove as the kitchen’s centerpiece, Hohla suggested a cooking class to provide a test drive of the French classic. “Best to know ahead of time if it would function for their family as well as be beautiful in the space,” she reasons. A similar weighing of options was employed when pinpointing the precise shade for the lacquered cabinets in the adjoining butler’s pantry. “We needed a deep green in the turquoise realm that speaks to the range without being too matchy,” she says about the winning teal hue.

Those are just two of the many thoughtfully considered details that followed—but before there was a stove, cabinets or colors, there was just a 2-acre property containing a thicket of old trees and an unremarkable house. “You couldn’t even walk in the backyard,” recalls landscape designer Andrea Kovol who, with landscape architect Ron Lutsko Jr., eliminated all the invasive species and planted new trees along the perimeter of the property to both define and screen the plot. That south-facing clearing became the anchor for a sprawling family home where the owners hoped to escape the strife of city living. “We left San Francisco for better weather and a yard,” says the wife, who had grown weary of driving around the city searching for a park where her three young offspring could play. “We were building a ground-up house and other than big windows and lots of light, we really didn’t know what we wanted.”

Hohla installed a pair of Tuell + Reynolds coffee tables from De Sousa Hughes as the central feature in the living room, and surrounded them with an A. Rudin sofa, Paul Frankl armchairs (left) and Holly Hunt lounge chairs (right). A pair of vintage Pierre Cardin lamps wear custom shades.

The distressed oak-top table and the host chair upholstered in a Romo floral fabric are both by Gregorius Pineo from Kneedler-Fauchère. The antique beige-and-tan area rug is from the Tony Kitz Gallery. Below, right: A large, turquoise La Cornue stove is the centerpiece of the home’s kitchen. Before purchasing the item, the designer arranged for the owners to try it out to make sure it was a fit for the family’s cooking style.

Comfort rules in the breakfast room where the Venfield rock-crystal chandelier purchased through 1stdibs lights the Therien Studio Workshop antique white-oak pedestal table. The Rose Tarlow chairs from Shears & Window wear green-and-gray herringbone fabric from Sloan Miyasato.

Early conversations with architect Richard Beard revealed otherwise. “They didn’t want anything overtly traditional, but definitely not aggressively modern either,” says Beard. “Incorporating family was essential.” He honored those wishes with a large dwelling that reads as a series of intersecting structures built with stone, cedar and dark steel and surrounded by a number of outdoor spaces for living and play. The home, built by general contractor Bryan Murphy, is new, but the assemblage of contrasting materials implies a sense of age, modernity and originality. Hohla, in concert with designer Alana Dorn, embraced that balance of old and new in the interiors. This is the third project Hohla worked on for this family, so she was familiar with their previous residences, including the one before this, which featured traditional rooms outfitted with French, Italian and English antiques. But in this case, the designer thought the new home should not be a case of history repeating itself. “I have been dreaming about this house for this family for a long time. From the beginning, we determined that it should have more of a clean-lined and edited feel,” she says. “We wanted to incorporate some of the antiques, but in a more modern way.” That line of thinking gives rise to the amenable mingling in the living room of a tailored sofa with a gently curving back and a pair of more ornate antique side tables (one adorned with an elaborate mother-of-pearl inlay, and the other with gilded accents). The classic, wingback style of a pair of vintage Paul Frankl seats and Holly Hunt armchairs play against the striking lines of custom-designed coffee tables

with aged-brass bases and natural stone tops. And, while an heirloom duet of curling Pierre Cardin table lamps adds a flourish to the room, it’s a brass chandelier reminiscent of a cascade of bangle bracelets that brings the drama while dangling from the 14-foot-high ceiling. “I’m obsessed with light fixtures,” Hohla says. “They are the jewelry of a room and the first thing your eye goes to.” The stylish mix is one of the features that makes this the wife’s favorite room in the house. In addition to the layering of old and new, Hohla went the extra mile when combining textures and lines. “I come from a family of engineers and I lay things out in a very planned way,” she explains. In the master bedroom, where Hohla wanted a serene and ethereal environment, she commissioned decorative artist Willem Racké to create

lacquer walls with a subtle strié pattern done in soft colors. This is a counterpoint to tailored elements such as the custom bed, settee and embroidered ottoman and the bolder Ralph Pucci lounge chairs, Hervé Van der Straeten bronze light fixture and the contemporary painting. As in the rest of the house, vintage alabaster lamps and demilune nightstands add traditional touches in the new structure. Unifying classic and contemporary elements was an aesthetic the designer carefully negotiated and considered. “The homeowners’ main concern was always about going too modern and mine was about staying too traditional,” Hohla shares. “I wanted them to have an updated home that feels timeless and that they can grow in—I think we were able to strike the perfect balance.”

A Manutti sofa and blue rope chairs from Teak Warehouse provide durable seating in the pool house. The coffee tables are from Urban Hardwoods, the drapery fabric is by Thibaut and the rug is from Stark.

STEELY RESOLVE SAN FRANCISCO ARTIST ZAI DIVECHA BRINGS AN EYE FOR GEOMETRY TO HER STRIKING STEEL AND PAPER CREATIONS. WRITTEN BY KAMALA NAIR / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEN SISKA


LUXESOURCE.COM / 223

“IT’S A SIMPLE, UNASSUMING MATERIAL, AND IT FEELS ALMOST MAGICAL TO TRANSFORM IT INTO THREE-DIMENSIONAL OBJECTS.”

S

an Francisco artist Zai Divecha first learned how to manipulate steel in her high school shop class. While the shy teenager—who had never thought of herself as mechanically inclined—was initially intimidated by the tools and machinery, once she learned how to use them, she was hooked. It was not long before Divecha was transforming huge sheets of raw steel into objects of functional beauty. “I saw that I could manipulate the color of the material or change the texture to make it smooth and silky,” Divecha recalls of her early experiments with the metal that has since become her signature. “I would see a chair I liked in a store and realize that I could make something similar. I found it empowering to be able to transform sheets, bars and tubes of steel into rocking chairs, vases and other beautiful objects.” Following her graduation from Yale University, Divecha embarked on a brief career in technology while continuing to refine her metalworking technique on the side, conjuring everything from welded steel vases and bowls to lighting and home goods. “At some point, people started offering to buy my work, and I thought I could turn this into a business,” she says of her decision to become a full-time professional artist.

While the artist enjoyed making functional pieces, it was in the creation of large wall hangings that Divecha found her true calling. Crafted from metal and wood in a range of geometric shapes and modern finishes, her pieces are inspired by the patterns she notices every day, including: steel grates, Islamic art, bathroom floor tiles, parametric architecture and long shadows at sunset. But while inspiration can occur suddenly, the process of bringing Divecha’s visions to life is often methodical and repetitive. She begins by designing the patterns on a computer, and then laser-cuts each part out of sheets of steel, brass or wood. The process ends with hand finishing.

Artist Zai Divecha manipulates sheets of paper into threedimensional art (opposite). She displays finished folded work in her studio (above, left). The sound of the grinder can “really get to” the artist, so she wears ear protection (above, right). “I glued the rhinestones on for fun,” she says.


The pieces of a maple-and-steel artwork (above) are laser-cut, hand-finished and mounted on a custom frame. Divecha’s studio (left) is decorated with art and plants, and is an oasis in the metal shop. The artist uses a variety of chemicals to create different finishes on the metal, and wears a respirator (right) during some procedures.

“I use a variety of treatments—including sanding, brushing and lacquering—to achieve different tones and textures,” she says. The artist then mounts finished pieces to a backing and sets them inside a custom-built frame. Recently Divecha’s artistic inclinations have taken an unexpected turn toward paper. “It’s a completely different skill set and experience, and I’m totally falling in love,” she says. “It’s a

simple, unassuming material, and it feels almost magical to transform it into three-dimensional objects with depth and shadow.” She finds the spontaneous and meditative aspect of working with paper a refreshing counterbalance to the often physically taxing side of metalwork. As she delves deeper into paper pleating, Divecha is excited about her continued artistic evolution. Lately, she has been collaborating with her partner, Phil Reyneri, who specializes in projection mapping, to incorporate light into her paper pieces, and she hopes to continue expanding the scale of her steel works. “I would love to do a 50-foot-long installation one day,” she says. “It would make a really dramatic impact on a huge space.”

FIELD OF DREAMS THE SWEEPING GRASSES OF A PORTOLA VALLEY HILLSIDE INFORM THE MODERN, ORGANIC DESIGN OF A FAMILY HOME. WRITTEN BY JENNIFER SERGENT / PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL DYER

LUXESOURCE.COM / 229


T

he wide, pristine swath of undulating prairie in Portola Valley presented both an opportunity and a challenge for San Francisco architect Jonathan Feldman: The 5.8-acre property was one of three residential plots sold off by the Woodside Priory school, and Feldman’s clients were the first to build there. “It’s pretty intimidating,” Feldman says. “It’s safe to say nobody wants to build first on a site like that, but it’s a real opportunity to set a tone.” It was a tone that would be under scrutiny, because neighbors, horseback riders and hikers had long treated the hillside as part of the adjacent regional park. “Seven houses looked across the open space to the ridge beyond, and we were putting a home in everyone’s foreground,” Feldman says, adding that public trails wrap around two sides of the property. Feldman and his clients agreed the house had to

capture its wild, untouched surroundings. “They loved the idea of living in a glass house, but didn’t want to live in a fishbowl,” he adds. Luckily, the contours of the land offered a solution, as it starts low near the neighboring houses and slopes up toward a gentle knoll by the trails. Feldman tucked the house into the hill just below its crest. The dark, low-slung structure recedes into the landscape, and its L-shape encloses a private courtyard with walls of glass facing the park, while the neighbor-facing sides have smaller openings that protect the family’s privacy. “Once we determined the siting and orientation of the main elements, the rest of the design and details were fairly obvious,” the architect says. Landscape architect Ron Lutsko Jr. took over where the house left off, surrounding it with native plantings that further nestle it into the grassy hill. “There was hardly a tree

The home’s concrete flooring extends outside to the patios, where they become shadow-striped by the ebony-stained cedar pergolas. The outdoor furnishings are all by RH. Landscape architect Ron Lutsko Jr. created a garden that melds seamlessly with the wilder, prairie-like environs surrounding the home.

there. It was this bald, open, Andrew Wyeth-like setting,” he says. “The project was all about appreciating that type of site.” Long, low concrete walls extend from the house to tie the dwelling into the distant scenery, and the landscape architect planted more of the native grasses close to the house. “You’re sitting in this wild California terrain that has not been altered,” Lutsko says, explaining that his goal was to make the house look like a spaceship had gently lowered it into an untouched landscape. Designer Stephanie Zaharias, a longtime friend of the wife, responded to Feldman’s streamlined architecture with a restrained interior palette of mostly black and gray. “Jonathan’s design of this house is beautiful, and I was consciously trying to make it not appear ‘designer-y,’†” Zaharias says, adding that her client eschews decorative

flourishes. “I was there to interpret her style, which is clean, minimalist and organic. She didn’t want something slick or high-gloss.” Another priority: Blurring the division between inside and outside spaces. Ebony-stained cedar, for example, travels from the exterior cladding to the interior walls, while dark wenge benches flow in and out from the foyer and living room. “We went to great effort to incorporate the exterior and interior materials in this house,” she says. The designer notes that the fusion of inside and out is an important mandate, given there are so many large windows and glass doors here. “We actually built the building to fit the windows,” general contractor Kyle Mortz says. “There’s a good amount of structural steel to create a vision of all glass and keep that feeling of a solid, rigid building.”

The dark color of the custom cabinets by Brian’s Cabinets blends with the exterior. Other dark-hued elements include the Absolute Black granite counters and backsplash. Sleek seating options feature LEM Piston barstools and Bontempi dining chairs from Nido Living. The Melbourne pendant is by New York designer Mary Wallis.

When the large, floor-to-ceiling glass doors by Five Twenty Two Industries are retracted, “the lab” acts as a breezeway between the master bedroom and the home’s main living areas. The large, plateglass window looking into the room is by Pacific Sash & Design.


Because “the lab� is often used for art projects, the designer selected a durable Parsons table crafted with metal legs and a white MDF surface and aluminum Cooper benches from Room & Board. The sunny yellow cushions are made with outdoor fabric from Shears & Window. The sliding metal door on the shelves hides a sink that allows for easy clean up.


Though a black house with concrete floors and patios might seem uninviting, the owner says the opposite is true, thanks to the large expanses of glass. “It doesn’t feel at all dark or oppressive. All you see is light,” she says. That’s because the dark-framed windows recede from the bright landscape, says Feldman, adding the surrounding hills are so vibrant, it allows the muted interior to enhance their beauty. “There was a lot of discussion about how you don’t need a lot of art in this house, because the art is in the views. Everything lines up around the windows.” There’s one space that asserts itself with color, a family nexus for work, games and crafting they call “the lab.” Zaharias celebrated the creative pursuits of her clients and

their two teenage daughters with pops of blue and yellow that energize the space. “We didn’t want it all to be muted and minimal,” says Zaharias, who notes that the yellows in particular echo the flowering plants Lutsko incorporated around the home’s perimeter. In the end, the architect relates that the community board quickly approved his design for this house, which hews so closely to the land—and even defended it to skeptical neighbors because it blends so well into the larger panorama. The clients, who wished to live in a glass house, feel both part of and protected from the view. Although they see the occasional dog or horse loose on the property, it’s not a problem. As the wife says, “It’s minor compared to the upsides of living out here.”

The minimalist master bedroom focuses attention on the views through the windows. Zaharias designed the upholstered bed with an ebony frame and textiles by Calvin Fabrics. Its integrated side tables were fabricated by Mark Brady Cabinets. The bed is made up with a duvet by Area and shams made of Romo fabric. The Jensen Bergère chair near the window is by Minotti.

HISTORY in the REMAKING A DESIGNER REINVIGORATES HIS FAMILY’S LANDMARK PROPERTY IN NOB HILL. WRITTEN BY ALLISON MCCARTHY / PHOTOGRAPHY BY R. BRAD KNIPSTEIN

INTERIOR DESIGN / ARTHUR MCLAUGHLIN, ARTHUR MCLAUGHLIN + ASSOCIATES

D

esigner Arthur McLaughlin looked at nearly 200 properties in San Francisco before finding “the one,” a Beaux Artsstyle condominium perched atop Nob Hill with views of Huntington Park and Grace Cathedral. “My husband, Steven Stiller, is European and I knew he would love the architecture, so I put in our offer the day I saw it,” McLaughlin says. It’s a romantic tale, and the unit has a backstory to match. Business magnate Adolph Spreckels had the apartment built around the turn of the century by renowned architect Arthur Laib for his then-mistress, artist and model Alma de Bretteville. She lived there until the two officially married in 1908. Soon after, the couple built a grand mansion across from nearby Lafayette Park, which is now owned by novelist Danielle Steel. Having purchased such a history-rich unit, McLaughlin and Stiller felt it was their duty to preserve many of the

unique architectural details, but as anyone living in the Bay Area knows, old San Francisco homes are often very dark and closed off. McLaughlin’s vision for the 2,000-square-foot home was to open up the space and create focal points of light and color to soften the interior and provide a foundation for their curated collection of contemporary art and furniture. So, when the couple moved in for the first time more than 20 years ago, they restored the apartment’s extensive woodwork, historic molding and coffered ceilings—darkened from smoke and age—to their original luster. When the couple renovated the apartment again in 2017 after moving out for a time, they added white-oak floors in a herringbone pattern throughout the home to create a sense of continuity from room to room and to help further brighten up the space. “When you have wood walls and ceilings, you have to take any light you get naturally and spread it around,” he says. Floor-to-ceiling windows, along with

In the living room, a combination of antiques and contemporary decor complements the unique architectural details of this historic Beaux Arts-style unit in Nob Hill designed and owned by Arthur McLaughlin.

The antique dining chairs are designed by Hungarian architect Lajos Kozma and feature a tawny jacquard upholstery by Rubelli. Behind the table is a vintage goatskin-covered console. An 18th-century Italian chandelier hangs above it all.

elements such as neutral rugs, achieve the desired effect. The designer had the original fireplace restored and relined to match a vintage mantel he found in Santa Barbara. “No one would ever guess that we brought that into the space,” says McLaughlin. The addition of an antiqued mirror above the mantel also helps reflect natural light around the room. McLaughlin strongly believes in designing according to needs, so he installed features throughout that speak to the couple’s preference for an easy-going lifestyle. For instance, the couple loves to entertain, so he added casual sitting areas throughout to make the unit feel less formal. He also chose a living room sofa that’s long and deep enough for friends to put their feet up and used easy-toclean fabrics like mohair and horsehair on this piece and others. “I personally spill a lot, so I always have to think about durability,” admits McLaughlin. Other livable features include fabric walls that help mute noise, such as when their niece gives piano recitals on the baby grand piano in the dining room. The media room ottoman doubles as a table or chair and has wheels so it can be easily moved around when entertaining. And the vintage Milo Baughman coffee table and Biedermeier dining table

are round so that pointed edges pose no danger to their young godson. “You need to know how you live and then create a beautiful interior around that,” the designer notes. Punches of color bring an energy to the classic lines of the interior. Vibrant artworks by John Wood and Charles Schuller pop in the living and dining rooms and create an interesting dynamic with the traditional architecture. In the media room, saturated blue walls create a sense of calm, while the slate gray and orange kitchen makes a daring statement. The kitchen needed a complete overhaul, so the couple gutted the whole thing, removing Spanish floor tiles and Laura Ashley wallpaper and installing new cabinets,

granite countertops and an island in a bright shade of burnt orange—one of the designer’s favorite hues. The bold color palette feels decidedly modern, while crown molding ties the room back to the rest of the apartment. Clearly a labor of love, this historic dwelling has a special place in both McLaughlin and Stiller’s hearts. Even after moving to Russian Hill for several years, they never got over their beloved Nob Hill condo (which they couldn’t bring themselves to sell). “They say you can’t go back again, but we did,” the designer says. “We have so many great memories here.” It turns out they had their forever home all along.

Paul Morin’s striking I Don’t Wanna artwork makes a bold statement and draws guests into the home’s raised seating nook off the entry corridor. The original owner had musicians sit here while performing during parties.

Below, right: An antique chair is upholstered with a fluffy, navy-blue sheepskin. The vintage leather suitcases and alligator-skin attaché belonged to Steven Stiller’s grandparents. The small glass-andbrass sculpture is by Arteriors.


McLaughlin created plenty of seating options, including a custom sectional in the media room by John Kroll at Interior Restoration Services upholstered in pinstriped Holland & Sherry fabric. A zebraprint ottoman can serve as a table or chair and has wheels, so it can be easily moved when entertaining. The glittering custom side table is finished with smoked glass and the vibrant artwork is by Jesse Allen.
