My Town Our Neighborhood. Your Home. Debra Stotts - “I was born and raised here and love New York City. My favorite neighborhood? All of them – each is glorious. 22 years ago, we taped listings to the wall. There were no computers, we made deals from pay-phones. Technology has

changed everything – and for the good. There is so much information out there. I get such satisfaction translating that into the feeling when someone walks into a property, and you just know that was where they were meant to live.”

EDITOR’S LETTER

a new view... The Tweak: it’s an ever-present verb for those of us in the business of design. Our days are consumed with upgrades and installs; recasts and transformations; alterations, punctuations and slightly-to-the-rights. A decade ago we began publishing Luxe Interiors + Design, and for this celebratory 10-year anniversary, we’ve done some refurbishing of our own with a refresh of our magazine pages. We’ve reassembled its parts in a way that makes for a better read. We’ve introduced more robust feature stories, revitalized the typography, and clarified the navigation of our departments. You’ll find news and discoveries for the season in “Radar,” the latest décor and product introductions in “Market,” and inspiring ideas for the home in “The Look.” Design never stands still, and we’ve certainly evolved over the past decade. What hasn’t changed much, however, is the mission of our magazine: to inform and inspire, cultivate ideas, and connect design enthusiasts with design talent. As always, and hopefully for the next 10 years and beyond, we hope you enjoy our magazine.

THE INSIDERS

andrea grOver

Having a moment: Textile and fiber art are finally getting their due. I see many young artists taking to the loom to learn the art of weaving. Others are working with fabric, thread and rope in inventive and monumental ways. Key your eye on… Multimedia artist Evan Desmond Yee, interdisciplinary art practice LoVid, and Shantell Martin. On tap for Parrish art Museum: “Platform: Tara Donovan” is a project I’ve been working on with the artist that I’m especially looking forward to presenting. Tara creates large-scale installations made from everyday objects. In her hands, accumulated and repeated materials such as drinking straws, pins, index cards or wire springs take on forms that appear geological, biological or otherwise naturally occurring. add to your bookshelves: Greenwich Village 1963: Avant-Garde Performance and the Effervescent Body, by Sally Banes. It captures a pivotal moment in American cultural history, when the avantgarde was deeply embedded in connecting art to everyday life. Andrea Grover is the Century Arts Foundation Curator of Special Projects at the Parrish Art Museum. She’s dying to create the first artist residency at Biosphere 2.

landscape 2 the architect MariO nievera

go-to event of the season: In its 18th year, The New York Flower Show Dinner Dance, benefiting the Horticultural Society of New York, is amazing and will be honoring Robert Couturier and Barbara Israel. Also, try to catch the Benefit Preview Party & Collectors’ Plant Sale on April 23 at the Antique Garden Furniture Fair. They have incredible specimen plants for sale and amazing garden ornaments and statuaries. city haven: The High Line in spring; watching the plants wake up from winter is a spectacle.

For the garden-obsessed: The Garden Court designed by John Russell Pope at The Frick Collection is the epitome of an elegant courtyard garden. It’s revered by the neighborhood yet threatened with the possibility of demolition due to proposed additions to the museum.

reopened. I’d also include Nathalie Du Pasquier’s exhibition “It is Hard to Get Excited About Growth of Less Then 3% With No Sign of Imminent Improvement,” on view through May 2 at Chamber. On tap for you: We are reengaging with contemporary design and will be doing a show this summer with Lindsey Adelman.

On your horizon: I’m working with designer Victoria Hagan right now. She has an amazing eye and thought process. I’m also teaming up with Vicente Wolf, Bunny Williams and David Kleinberg, who all love landscape and feel that collaboration is so key to any project.

Richard Wright is the founder of Wright auction house in New York and Chicago. He collects caviar spoons and wishes Charles and Ray Eames were still working today.

images: Clockwise from top: Roy Lichtenstein’s Tokyo Brushstroke I & II installed on the Bacon Family South Meadow of the Parrish Art Museum. A Finn Juhl lounge chair available at the Scandinavian Design auction by Wright, beginning May 7. Landscape architect Mario Nievera fashioned this lush dream-like outdoor area.

Having a moment: Brian Sawyer of Manhattan-based multidisciplinary firm Sawyer | Berson is getting a lot of buzz lately, as is my friend, interior designer Charlie Ferrer of Ferrer. If landscape architect Mario Nievera, of Nievera Williams Design, could switch jobs with anyone, it’d be with his friend Eric Jennings, the Vice President and Director of Menswear, Home, Gifts and Beauty at Saks Fifth Avenue.

3 the auctioneer ricHard wrigHt

Keep your eye on… Detroit. There is about to be a true art Renaissance there. i wish i could have kept… The Isamu Noguchi stone table that sold at our Important 20th Century Design auction in 2005. Having a moment: Scandinavian design has become increasingly popular. From the work of Märta Måås-Fjetterström to Finn Juhl—the timeless craft, aesthetic and warmth of these materials really resonate right now. add to your agenda: Make time to stop by the shop at the Gagosian Gallery in the ParkeBernet building for great books on design, and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, which just

AERIN SHOWROOM 200 LEXINGTON AVENUE SUITE 816 NEW YORK, N.Y. 212 679 4341


THE INSIDERS Can’t get enough of… The great Italian socialite and style icon Marella Agnelli and all of her houses, but mainly her northern Italian country estate, Villar Perosa. Oh and Wes Anderson.

4

On tap for the design world: I see two sides emerging in design: the baroque and the minimal, and they seem to be fascinated with each other. I like them as bedfellows.

6 THE COLLECTOR MICHAEL TRAPP

5

On your radar: Oscar de la Renta’s collection with their new lead designer Peter Copping, which got rave reviews at Fashion Week. Also, Alexander Wang’s furniture capsule collection with Poltrona Frau is amazing. In my home, I’d love to have… A vegetable and flower garden bigger than I could ever fit on my terrace! But I suppose that’s the dream for those of us who live in Manhattan. Go-to designer: Narciso Rodriguez, because I love that every time I put on one of his dresses, I feel strong, confident and incredibly feminine. Michelle Peluso is the CEO of innovative online shopping destination gilt.com. She’s always wanted to rip down the John F. Kennedy International Airport and start from scratch, as she firmly believes there must be a more inspiring way to design a global hub.

THE MERCHANT MICHELLE PELUSO

Happening in e-commerce: I’m excited about the blending of content and commerce—rich editorials, images, video, storytelling…all in the name of service. At Gilt, we have been working hard at sharpening our point of view and making it easier for our customers to engage. What’s trending? I love some of the luxe sneakers appearing alongside high fashion that I saw this past Fashion Week. Nike is always my favorite innovator in the space, but it is fun to see Lanvin and Burberry making a statement, too. 122 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

5 THE DESIGNER MILES REDD

What’s intriguing you now in design? All the things that are not in fashion, like English furniture, antiques…basically, your grandmother’s house. Not-to-miss this spring: The John Singer Sargent exhibition—“Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends”—at the National Portrait Gallery in London, through May 25. Color combo of the moment: I am loving daffodil and shocking pink. Career wish list: I would like to brand a perfume and direct the commercial for it. “Miles Redd for Chanel” is the fantasy.

What’s intriguing you now in design? Natural history. Mother Nature is the best designer, and it is free and available to anybody who will take the time to look. On your radar: Fabric designer Robert Kime from the UK. He is timeless and has a sense of comfort as well as an ease that is applied to a canvas of sophistication. I can’t get enough of… Roberto Burle Marx, the groundbreaking modernist Brazilian landscape architect that did the pavements and parks throughout Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Happening in Connecticut: There are a lot of new interesting people buying houses in the Litchfield Hills. The new blood brings fresh energy and ideas. That’s exciting. For the design-obsessed: Check out The Garden Conservancy’s Open Days in the summer, which lets you explore private gardens open to the public. We have some pretty amazing gardens here in Connecticut that are worth the detour! Also, don’t miss Trade Secrets May 16 and 17, which was founded by Bunny Williams to raise funds for Women’s Support Services. Currently in store: There is a group of 19th-century plaster classical figures from an art school in Madrid that we have in the shop right now. They’re some of my favorite current acquisitions. Antique dealer Michael Trapp owns an eponymous shop of curiosities and architectural fragments in West Cornwall, Connecticut. He’s always wanted to be tasked with outfitting and styling store window displays.

Images: Clockwise from top right: Designer Miles Redd’s penchant for rich color imbues this living space. The Lichtfield Hills home of collector Michael Trapp is full of his found treasures. Luxury home décor and fashion accessories, like this Embellished Glitter clutch by Mawi, can be found daily on gilt.com.

Author of The Big Book of Chic, interior designer Miles Redd would love to style Angelina Jolie for the Oscars… but only if she gave him complete control. He also hopes we never get sick of Didot font types.

MIX MASTERS

CUTTING-EDGE WORKS EMPLOY TECHNIQUES AS VARIED AS THE ARTISTS WHO CREATED THEM. WRITTEN BY JESSE BRATTER / PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS

ELISA GOMEZ MIXED MEDIA Whether it’s the energetic rhythms of an upbeat salsa number or the transportive sounds of a classical opus, all music moves Elisa Gomez in an indescribable way. The Austin-based abstract painter translates this feeling to canvas using brushes, palette knives or even her bare hands. The graffiti effect in Am I Free From This Dream #2, left, is a result of her fast-paced strokes and layered textures; it's part of her series with local composer Walter Nichols—a visual portrayal of his musical arrangements. Of her wish for viewers to have the same reaction to her art as she has to music, she says, “I hope people are taken to a deeper, more meaningful place.” elisagomezart.com

TROY SIMMONS CONCRETE Troy Simmons is so captivated by Brutalist architecture that he translates the vernacular to canvas, juxtaposing raw concrete against sleek pigments (see Durchbruch, left, shown vertically, and Serendipity, below). Approaching each piece like a construction project— his heaviest weighs 300 pounds—the Miami artist creates 3-D renderings and drawings before chiseling away at the cement. “My creative process reflects who we are as humans,” Simmons says. “We all carry complex yet beautiful experiences in our souls.” See his work this May at JanKossen Contemporary Art Gallery in New York. troysimmonsstudio.com

SARAH RASKEY MIXED MEDIA The Swarovski crystals in Sarah Raskey’s 24kt Gold and Glamour, above, is a good indication of the high fashion that permeates her work. The elegant result is a far cry from the mad-scientist process that gets her there: picture materials spilled over, others set on fire, and power tools strewn about her Chicago studio. “I love the dance that takes place among art, fashion and self-expression,” says Raskey, who, as an art therapist, helps others find healing through creativity. “I want viewers to feel that my art encourages the human spirit.” Raskey will be incorporating Maya Romanoff’s handmade textiles into her work for an exhibit at its Chicago showroom this April. sarahraskey.com

JAMIE LEE REARDIN ILLUSTRATION “When I was little, I dreamed of becoming a Disney animator, and my interests later expanded into fashion,” recalls Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jamie Lee Reardin. “I eventually fused these passions, and from my imagination emerged these gawky gazelles with long, impossibly thin silhouettes.” Their dramatic appearance, seen in Aline, left, speaks to Reardin's fascination with complex personalities like Cruella De Vil and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride. Her talents ultimately caught the eye of Dior Beauty's Dianne Vavra, which turned into the ideal collaboration. Now with each pen stroke and watercolor mark, she's surpassing her childhood dreams one character at a time. jamieleereardin.com

ELOISE CORR DANCH PAPER All Brooklyn artist Eloise Corr Danch needs to create her swoon-worthy works are her grandmother’s heavy metal scissors, X-Acto knives and a colorful imagination. Whether flowers, headpieces, illustrations or myriad other objects, it’s the endless color wheel and the way light reflects off its surface that attracts Danch to paper as her medium. Since her studies explored fashion history and construction, translating her floral creations for editorial fashion spreads and window dressings comes naturally—they've been used to embellish Diane von Furstenberg’s New York and Paris flagship stores, for one. “I love the play between the utility of clothes and the artistry and romance of fashion,” she says. “I hope the defining message of my work is beauty. Whether in the form of color, line or silhouette, I am always seeking to create something beautiful.” eloisecorrdanch.com

KELSEY BROOKES ACRYLIC

From an overlook at McWay Falls in Big Sur, California, Oakland artist Laura Plageman stands with her camera, marveling at the relationship between man and nature—the idyllic vista calling out to her, yet its inaccessible beach and falls remaining out of reach. In that vein, Plageman created a second image, left, that appears part illusory and part tangible, altering her original printed photo of McWay Falls and then photographing the result as a still life. Comprising her Response series, the photograph presents a seemingly impossible scene yet shows evidence of its construction through crumples and folds in the paper. “I delight in making an image that’s at once familiar and unfamiliar,” she says. “I want the viewer to look at the details and discover the image for themselves.” photolp.com

JEAN WELLS MOSAIC One look at Jean Wells’ mosaic-mirrored sculptures and it’s easy to see the influence of pop culture on her work. So it’s no surprise that when asked to name an artist favorite, she points to Wayne Thiebaud for reflecting food and humor in his paintings. Wells, too, turns to iconography and nostalgia when sculpting her fanciful objects and fast food re-creations using glass she cuts by hand; Conversation Piece, right, is an example of Wells recalling her youth. What's more, her mosaic soda bottles can be seen traveling the world this year as part of a Coca-Cola exhibition. “My motivation is spreading happiness,” muses the Seattle native. It’s a fitting mantra for an artist whose work gushes with sentimentality and whimsy. wellsart.com

BROOKES PHOTOS: ONE POINTED ATTENTION NO. 11 (DETAIL) AND ONE POINTED ATTENTION NO. 10, PHOTOS BY PHILIPP SCHOLZ RITTERMANN / COURTESY QUINT GALLERY.

For San Diego-based painter Kelsey Brookes, a scientistturned-artist, there is no left brain-right brain distinction. “You have one brain and it can become interested in whatever you purposely direct it toward,” he says. To this point, in his artistic endeavors, Brookes still explores cerebral patterns and molecular structure—but instead of examining them through a microscope, he maps them out on canvas using Golden acrylic paint and Winsor & Newton Series 7 sablehair brushes. In contrast to their vibrant colors and intricate patterns, as seen in his One Pointed Attention series, right, Brookes calmly creates his psychedelic works while listening to NPR or, sometimes, in total silence. Check out his molecular prints this spring at Quint Gallery in La Jolla, California, and see other works at New York’s Eric Firestone Gallery in June. kelseybrookes.com

natural instinct Influenced by the IdyllIc landscape of her natIve chIle, a nature-centrIc ceramIcIst embarks on a new endeavor wIth bernhardt desIgn.

WrITTen AnD prODuCeD BY mimi faucett

Ignacia Murtagh’s personal connection to pre-Hispanic native cultures began in the place she calls home: Southern Chile. “I fell in love with Chile’s poetic tradition that reinforces design as the vehicle to turn tiny but relevant details of nature into useful and significant interior elements,” she says. As a young designer, Murtagh has always attributed her design sensibility to the exuberant geography of her surroundings. Her most recent project—a series of three side tables for Bernhardt Design—directs that credit to the Andes Mountains. “The Los Andes tables were inspired by mountains that are strong and imposing but at the same time graceful and slender,” she describes. This

sculptural elegance was achieved with the tables’ unpredictable heights, organic angles and contrasting sharpness. Murtagh spent a year with the designers at Bernhardt sketching, modeling and ultimately learning to work with a new material: wood. “Ceramics are malleable. You can accomplish complex designs in a short time and change elements quickly,” explains the designer. “Wood is out of your control. The character of the grain, colors and textures are expressed differently in every piece. Once you understand the material, however, wood becomes limitless.” Armed with an aesthete’s eye and an ever-growing material repertoire, Murtagh is proving to be just as limitless herself.

NO MEDIUM IS OFF-LIMITS FOR ARTIST DAVID WISEMAN, WHO TAPS SILK AS HIS NEW MUSE FOR A LIMITED-EDITION RUG DESIGN.

WRITTEN BY MIRANDA AGEE / PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ

Clockwise from top: David Wiseman’s limited-edition rug design for R & Company. The artist’s Glacier pendant in Smoke. A Lily of the Valley installation from a past solo exhibition of Wiseman’s at R & Company. A one-of-a-kind Collage fireplace screen in bronze and porcelain. This Small Geode vase in bronze is one of 25 made, each signed and numbered. A custom commission for a private New York residence.

Glass, bronze, porcelain: For artist David Wiseman, his material selections are as varied as his creations. His scene-stealing designs can be found all over the world, from large-scale porcelain installations for Dior boutiques in Shanghai and Tokyo—which he designed in collaboration with architect Peter Marino—to being a part of the permanent collection at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. Now, in partnership with R & Company, the Los Angeles-based Wiseman is taking his intricate skills to the ground level with a limited-edition rug design inspired by his travels and rooted in historical craftsmanship. Designer Todd Oldham gave you your big break. Tell us more about that. My first project was a nature-inspired hat hanger. Todd, who I had met when he was a guest lecturer for one of my classes at RISD, actually ended up ordering a bunch of them to give as gifts. Then, when I graduated college, he offered me a job. What are your favorite materials to work with? Bronze is endlessly fascinating to me. There are so many different alloys and patinas, and when you bring it up to a high polish, it’s a true work of art. How did rugs come into the picture for you? R & Company approached me with the idea to translate my designs into a rug collection. I went to Kathmandu to meet the weavers and to better understand their process. When I got there, I was blown away. Meeting them completely changed my concept because I needed to be as detailed as they were. Can you speak to the handmade aspect? It takes anywhere from six to eight months to create one rug and only 12 are being made in two distinct colorways. Because of the high quality of silk that they use, there are 4.5 million knots in each carpet.

Textiles are a new arena for you. Did you have to think differently? It started the same way I begin all of my designs, with pencil and paper, but I quickly learned that there is no room for error. The Tibetan and Nepalese communities of rug makers were so skilled at being able to capture the drawings they even wove my subtle eraser marks into one of the samples. How did your travels come to influence this particular project? The concept is about fusing my favorite patterns from around the world so I thought it would be appropriate to add a common Tibetan motif— such as billowing clouds—into the design. What else inspires you? I always turn to nature and its history in the decorative arts. I love seeing how different cultures have internalized nature and included it in their indigenous ornamental patterns. With everything you create, what are you always looking to achieve? Finding the poetic truth about what each material wants to become. I’m obsessed with that.

#INSTACRUSH @fabiochizzola

WHO: Fabio Chizzola, a lifestyle and fashion photographer whose images often grace the pages of the industry’s most well-respected magazines and most-anticipated lookbooks. WHAT: Expect to see an almost complete departure from the photography of Chizzola’s working days. Here, you’ll catch behind-thescenes glimpses of him at work on his weekend farm—Westwind Orchard—in the Hudson River Valley, as well as breathtaking shots from his many travels. WHY: Because it’s nice to be reminded that even for those who spend their days hanging out with models, there’s still real beauty to be had and enjoyed in nature—sans Photoshop.

What happens behind the scenes in the studios of some of the area’s best craftsmen and artisans? For Brooklynbased Cody Hoyt, creativity is tied into the process of constructing his oversize, geometrically arresting ceramics. “I always conceive my pieces first by drawing either the forms or the patterns,” Hoyt says. “At first automatic, they then become more specific and calculated as the idea develops. I fold cardboard to make full-scale iterations of different shapes to get a sense of form. Then, when I’m ready to actually build a piece, I lay out slabs of clay and inlay thinner pieces onto the surface to create pattern.” And the hard work doesn’t end there. “After I’ve folded the slabs together and sealed their edges, I have to wait until they are dry enough that the edges can be trimmed and straightened before I spray or brush glaze onto the interior,” he says. “All of the work then has to be fired to cone 5 or 6 before it can be considered complete.” codyhoyt.com

Here, our clients can get a sense for how furnishings would look in their own homes. What makes Axel Interiors different? We’re more akin to an art gallery than a typical home furnishings store. We represent the work of artisans who are designing and crafting pieces in studios, not factories. What lines do you carry?

luxe tapped talented local designers for their best sources and recommendations to shine a light on some of the area’s finest offerings in art and design.

“ I am a great admirer of Pamela Sunday. As a local artist, she creates stunning forms from clay that are meticulously detailed with spikes, pods and other interesting textures. There is a definite consistency in her work, yet each piece is unique and has its own distinct personality.”

“ For me, stopping into British Home Emporium in Madison, New Jersey, is like being a kid in a candy shop. The space is huge, with the owner’s newest finds stuffed into every nook and cranny, and all of the accessories, fabrics and furniture are beautifully displayed.”

“I have a great respect for Billy ruiz. He’s an artist whose technique is truly remarkable. His personal style of abstract graffiti integrates modernist skill with street-art edge. I also admire Kajahl Benes because his oneof-a-kind conceptual pieces are unlike anything I’ve seen.”

“I’m always looking for artists who—while emerging and perhaps young—still possess a strong body of work and a clear vision for what he or she is producing. There are so many artists right now to watch, but I think one exciting change in the last five to 10 years has been the rise of—or resurgence of—artist collectives (multiple artists working together under one name and aegis). currently, I am enjoying what’s coming out from BHQFU, Aziz + cucher and the Gcc.” -jane panetta, WhitneY.org

fashion forward NINA GArcIA

One of the most well-respected names in fashion, Nina Garcia loves design in all its many forms. Here, the editor and television personality shares her secrets for great style—both on the runway and off of it. What new runway trends would you like to see reflected in the home? The Seventies were a big trend this season. I think it would be interesting to see fabrics from that era—like suede, denim and patchwork—incorporated into the home in an elegant way. Which fashion designer would you love to see develop his or her own home collection? I love Fendi and Armani’s home lines. They fit well with my subdued, pared-down luxe aesthetic. I’m not much of a print or pattern person myself, but I would love to see Mary Katrantzou or Proenza Schouler do a textile collection. Your home features masterful layering, thanks to the wonderful rugs throughout. Why is investing in rugs so important? They lay the groundwork for the entire space, tie everything together, and add character to a room. There are many great places for rugs, but my favorites are Tai Ping, Doris Leslie Blau, Stark, Safavieh and Marc Phillips.

156 / luxe interiors + design

let’s talk fabric. do you find you’re drawn to the same textures for your wardrobe as you are for your home? When it comes to interior design, I am attracted to simple, neutral color palettes but very rich texture because, for me, that’s where you can bring personality in. I think the same could be said for my wardrobe. My bedroom curtains are cashmere, and I love a good cashmere sweater, as well. Same with a shaggy fur coat—on a pillow? Fabulous. share your home design staples. I’m always hunting for Swedish midcentury furniture, textured carpets and unique pieces during my travels. They’re what I splurge on. What are your favorite shops and showrooms to visit when you’re at home in new York? I always stop into Gallery BAc. The selection is amazing, and carlos Aparicio is a dear friend of mine who actually helped me decorate my apartment. I also like Maison Gerard, Karl Kemp Antiques and 1stdibs.

Since 2010, Yael Aflalo’s clothing line, Reformation, and the brand’s locations on Howard Street in SoHo and Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side have become staples for a certain type of woman: cool, confident and in-the-know. Aflalo’s super-luxe wardrobe basics and dresses are effortlessly stylish and cosmopolitan—a veritable uniform for big-city chic. Here, the tastemaker taps her love and knowledge of New York City to deliver the perfect whirlwind itinerary for the shopping enthusiast. thereformation.com

10 a.m. First thing’s first: When you have a busy day ahead of you, it’s important to take some time for yourself, so be sure to get your morning manicure in at Spazio. 11 a.m. Walk around Nolita and make your way to the Lower East Side across Bowery. There are a great mix of vintage and consignment shops along this stretch that are so much more relaxed than many places people would think of in key shopping districts.

BLUEPRINT 56 LEONARD

Art is at the heart of Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning firm Herzog & de Meuron’s newest residential undertaking in TriBeCa—both literally and figuratively. The team’s mission for the soon-to-be-erected 60-story luxury structure was simple: They wanted it to feel like a piece of sculpture plunked down in the middle of the iconic New York City skyline. They didn’t, however, stop with the tower’s puzzle-piece, Jenga-inspired facade. Instead, they reached out to celebrated artist Anish Kapoor, whose specially commissioned, dazzling steel sculpture—his first permanent public installation in New York—will soon serve as the base for the 145-residence building’s ambitious architecture. 56leonardtribeca.com; herzogdemeuron.com 158 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

12 p.m. Make a quick stop for some caffeine at El Rey Coffee Bar & Luncheonette on Stanton Street before paying us a visit at Reformation. I promise you’ll find something you love here. 1 p.m. If you’re craving something sweet, Economy Candy has one of the biggest selections of goodies in NYC. The place itself takes you back in time in the best way. 2 p.m. It’s getting late, so now that you’ve had dessert, head over to Dimes on Division Street for lunch. All of their bowls are incredible—both healthy and satisfying. You can’t go wrong there. I love Balthazar, too, though; it’s one of my favorite places in New York. Their food is excellent, and the ambience is classic.

3 p.m. Pop by the Lehmann Maupin Gallery and the New Museum for a dose of inspiration. Taking in some art is the best pick-me-up to beat a late-afternoon lull. 4 p.m. Don’t miss the happy hour at Tacombi at Fonda Nolita. All of their cocktails are made with fresh juices, so I don’t feel so bad drinking in the afternoon. 6 p.m. Finish your day with dinner at Dudleys on Orchard Street. It’s a great farm-totable spot. They work with local suppliers, so everything on their menu is always fresh and delicious.

9 a.m. The best way to start the day is with breakfast at Café Gitane on Mott Street. Their avocado toast— avocado, lemon juice, olive oil and chili flakes on seven-grain bread—is an absolute must.

This spring is all about surprising color combinations and pink and ruby have long been a fixture on the fashion scene with interiors following in close pursuit; Alexandra von Furstenberg’s sexy side table and Tai Ping's feathery carpet, to name a few. Industry giant Miles Redd loved the duo so much he chose it as a main palette for his Manhattan town house, right. “I wanted the space to feel like you were submerged inside of a raspberry soufflé,” explains Redd. “I’ve always been attracted to these colors because they feel so alive—and I love the backdrop pink provides for pictures.”

Known for her artistic approach and inventive use of materials, Melbourne, Australia-based interior designer Fiona Lynch easily assembled this dynamic kitchen using our next twosome: gold and marble. Equally substantial on their own, a magical chord is struck when these two elements team up. Case in point, French lighting brand La Chance fluently combines the pair in a mini-lamp flaunting a perforated shade and Carrera marble base, while Brooklyn wallpaper studio Calico displays their beauty on its handmade papers.

The hyper contrast that exists between navy and peridot combines all the carefree nuances of springtime. The playful palette also conjures notions of excitement and adventure, which was exactly the visceral reaction New York designer Sara Story sought to create in the dining room shown. “I love this fresh color combination,” says Story. “I’ve always enjoyed mixing opposing textures, materials and pops of color—in this case a vibrant chartreuse seat fabric was just the right accent to the stunning Gracie wallcovering.” Here, Fireclay's latest tile collection, Cool Motif, marries the two powerhouses perfectly.

Chicago designer Patrizio Fradiani of Studio F emphatically applied the electrifying duo of citrus and amethyst in this retro-fitted seating niche. “The inspiration was to provide a touch of glamour combined with bold colors,” he explains. “Though an unusual pair, they are quite complementary and their juxtaposition was intended to energize the space with summery notes to combat the gloomy Chicago winters.” Chanel’s dreamy new quilted shoulder bag embraces a cheery citrus tone while Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman’s sleek bench shows off amethyst in a more refined fashion, proving that this lively pair is here to stay.

geremia design

boys club “It’s material that makes an object or space tactile,” muses Lauren Geremia, principal designer of San Francisco’s Geremia Design. And, when presented with a vast array of the season’s fabric offerings, Geremia opted for a serene palette of neutrals to create the refined, masculine space shown here that invites intimate gatherings and quiet conversation. “I wanted the dining space to be minimal but mature,” she explains, “selecting simplistic patterns and muted colors that allow an opportunity for layering and creating dynamic, textured compositions.” Rose Tarlow Melrose House “napkins” sit atop place mats fashioned from a Knoll Luxe material to ground the tablescape, while a Cowtan & Tout fabric dresses the vintage midcentury chair frames and Pierre Frey’s stunning abstract textile takes its place as artwork—all giving way to a neutrally color-coded dining room where masculine notes abound and simplicity speaks volumes.

YOUNG HUH

sitting pretty Designed to stop you in your tracks, this striking vignette fashioned by New York-based designer Young Huh proves that there is an art to making an entrance. “I imagined a welcoming spot where guests could arrive and be greeted with drinks and sweets,” says Huh. “My goal was to create an impactful area through contrasts in color and pattern.” To achieve her vision, Huh employed Schumacher’s Iconic Leopard fabric to flock the walls and adorned an accent pillow and the base of an ottoman with Duralee’s Eileen Kathryn Boyd collection. Rebecca Atwood’s playful spots find a home on a classic Bunny Williams stool, Beacon Hill’s Lilliflora textile, from the Ankasa Bespoke collection, drapes the table and Huh’s own fabric design for Peter Fasano graces the dining chair. “The more you mix, the more lively the room is,” says the designer, “what better stage for a little get-together.”

natural habitat Innately drawn to organic textures and wild prints, Dida Home’s David Miranda and Diana Uribe set out to create a bar scene perfect for cocktails, conversation and creative textile choices. “We had our mind set on using fabrics with earthy colors and organic shapes,” says Miranda, “giving way to a cheerful palette perfect for unwinding.” Starting with the drapery, where Chivaso’s Wild Jungle is layered adjacent to de Le Cuona’s quietly elegant Mali, the look continues with Dominique Kieffer’s Sousvide, designed by Paola Navone, seamlessly applied to the surface of the bar cart. Hunt Slonem’s Fritillery for Groundworks takes flight on a decorative marble slab, while Slonem’s Catelayas 2 makes its way into a mirrored frame on the gallery wall. Navone’s Quai Branly cloaks the armchair to complete the scene. Says Uribe, “In this space, materials set the temperature but color and print dictate the mood.”

Eternity Each of us experiences the inside and outside of our lives on a daily basis. On the outside we arm ourselves in order to protect our internal life, our intimacy, our loved ones, and our personal beliefs. We have one face we share with the world, while watchful that nothing penetrates the sanctity of our internal peace. From inside we have all the windows to the world, but we only open them to the ones we trust. In “Eternity� we live peacefully encompassed by the healing rose, symbolizing Compassion and Love.

SEVEN GAME-CHANGING VISIONARIES COME TOGETHER TO COMMENT ON WHAT’S FRESH FOR SPRING AND THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING IT LIGHT. WRITTEN BY MIMI FAUCETT / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOANNA MCCLURE

ELIZABETH ROBERTS ARCHITECT ENSEMBLE ARCHITECTURE, DPC

Architecture: The Zio buffet’s strength is in its simplicity of form, the natural grain of the wood, and its long, low proportions. It’s classic. Creativity: As a whole, Zio feels both solid and subtle, while angled, rounded legs offer a whimsical element. I think we’re drawn to fun, accessible environments, and playful pieces like this create a nice juxtaposition to older, more detailed furnishings, art or architecture. Impression: A statement piece should be bold and noticed. This buffet’s refined details and sleek silhouette make it just that.


SARA COLOMBO CURATOR NEST CASA

Design: The collection is unmistakably Rodarte. This rug gives the illusion of lace and a feeling of romance. Imagination: Each design speaks to fantasy and has an ethereal quality. The overlay technique has such organic movement. Storytelling: The provenance of objects in the home is truly meaningful. Every collected piece should tell a story and become part of your own narrative. Color: I am a big believer in color and love that the hues in this line are strong but not overpowering. I can see the Cobalt Motif design under the blue velvet couches in my sitting room.

MAGIC CARPET THE PIECE: Cobalt Motif THE DESIGNER: Rodarte for The Rug Company FIND IT: therugcompany.com THE INSPIRATION: Finding inspiration in 1970s California, medieval romance and fairytale fantasies, Rodarte’s debut rug collection reflects the designers’ fascination with the unusual and ethereal.

KEITH KREEGER

CERAMICIST KEITH KREEGER STUDIOS

Material: I’m drawn to the clean lines and material mixture of Sasser’s tables. I love combining materials that contrast with one another. The strong lines are sleek and fresh. Craft: Makers need to own the word handmade again. You can clearly see the craftsmanship and intent of the maker behind Sasser’s work. To me, this defines what he stands for. Luxury: A well-made object is a deserved pleasure and once you begin to live with these luxuries it’s hard to envision life without them.

THE PIECE: Supernova Writing Desk THE DESIGNER: Dougall Paulson FIND IT: dougallpaulson.com THE INSPIRATION: Guided by materiality, form and light, the Supernova desk celebrates the chaotic energy of the cosmos and recalls the night sky.

PEGGY WONG

MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGNER BLUEPOOLROAD

Feel: Supernova is ethereal and weightless, with a classic, nostalgic appeal. It was designed to be touched. Look: The celestial, space-age aesthetic of the desk brings me back to seeing the Milky Way at Ayers Rock in Australia. The onyx panel illuminates, like the quiet glowing band spread across the night sky in an abstract, almost haunting way. Vision: It is crucial to have passion, to dive into a design concept and be inspired by it. Striking a particular balance between form and function is the ultimate art form.

FLIGHTLESS FLAME THE COLLECTION: Peacock THE DESIGNER: Dan Yeffet FIND IT: avenue-road.com THE INSPIRATION: A self-proclaimed explorer and adventurer, Yeffet created these candleholders, made of polished brass and conic marble, with playfulness in mind, like “a peacock doing cartwheels,� he says.

JEFF MARTIN

CRAFTSMAN JEFF MARTIN JOINERY

Designer: Dan Yeffet has a strong command of authorship running through his entire body of work. I love his adventurous material studies and conceptual thinking. Composition: The Peacock candleholders have a great mix of rich, opulent materials being utilized for such a primitive form of light. The polished brass reflects the light and enhances it from a technical standpoint. The simple structure of the two separate pieces coming together is intelligent and subtle, while the pieces themselves are cheeky and whimsical. Creativity: Artists should have fun playing with concepts or production methods. Imagination seems to be the way of driving innovation forward.

Artistry: There’s a jewel-like quality to these plates. Felt+Fat’s originality is visually arresting with such refreshing modernity. Handmade: Perfection exists in imperfection. There’s nothing more beautiful than the authenticity and warmth achieved by handcrafted workmanship. Aesthetic: The subtle glamour of this eclectic collection bears an approachable sensibility that would make any gathering more inviting and really communicate a personal point of view. The muted palette offers quiet beauty and feels grounded and timeless. Balance: These plates are reminiscent of marbled papers I’ve collected in Florence—a time-honored motif that strikes the perfect balance between restraint and chance.

Kate troyer textile designer

Composition: What appeals to me about the Asscher chandelier are the contradicting notions within the design. It is a daring piece that is geometrically composed yet remains unpredictable. It is both delicate and industrial, and worthy of discussion due to its play on form. The use of positive and negative space creates a pattern that is imposing but not heavy. Market: In today’s industry, there is a craving for creating both comfort and elegance. Sophisticated design does not have to be sterile. Authenticity shines through when a design expresses imagination. Installation: I would hang this piece in my studio space for cool inspiration as well as some necessary light.

Dekton, a highly versatile indoor-outdoor surface, exemplifes this premise. “Consumers were asking for a durable, aesthetically pleasing surface suitable for outdoor use, and Dekton was developed specifcally to meet that demand,” says Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino north america. the lifestyle shift toward fusing indoor-outdoor living environments has given rise to products like Dekton, introducing homeowners to new concepts in materials and surfaces that are congruous with their surroundings. “well-designed materials must be seamlessly incorporated into the overall design of a space, as well as contribute to its functionality,” Marquez says. “a well-designed surface goes beyond its aesthetic—it complements the family’s lifestyle in terms of durability, ease of care and long-term use.” the Dekton Collection emulates the beauty of exotic stone, like the aura, which captures the veining and movement of rare Calacatta, but eliminates the maintenance and care that marble and other rare natural stones require. “with Dekton, homeowners can introduce a stunning surfacing material to their outdoor space specifcally manufactured to withstand the elements without compromising its performance,” Marquez says.

KiTchen confiDenTiAL: A new look + ethos “the trend is for homeowners to extend the ‘heart of the home’ to the outdoors,” eldorado president Brent Spann shares. Kitchens, cooking and camaraderie have never been more synonymous: today’s outdoor living spaces have become natural extensions of this philosophy, giving way to fully equipped outdoor kitchens, freplaces, fre bowls and conversation areas. “Under-counter appliances, refrigerators, warming drawers and countertops can be added to eldorado outdoor cabinets to create the full culinary experience outside,” he says. “We are inspired to elevate outdoor spaces from ordinary to extraordinary.”

it’s easier than ever to add an outdoor kitchen or conversation area to expand your living space.

Outdoor kitchens are closely matching interior design trends—homeowners are looking to create timeless spaces that they then decorate with their own personal aesthetics. Make it your own. For a “homey” feel, use clean color palettes with the building materials and more permanent furniture and fxtures; add personal style with exchangeable items like pillows or pots and plants. A tale of two approaches. right now, trends are leaning toward light-colored, creamy stone profles such as the Cottonwood european Ledge-cut façade. also, modern but darker stone profles such as the Black river stacked stone are increasingly popular, especially in east Coast designs.

For more than 50 years, Fleetwood Windows & doors has been at the forefront of window and door design and manufacturing. Driven by the desire to innovate; a respect for architectural excellence; and a commitment to the integrity of materials, Fleetwood is a market leader for sophisticated windows and doors. “the significant movement toward operable walls of glass that blur the lines between inside and outside has increased the demand for the products that we design and manufacture,” says Mark McCoy, VP of sales.

Without question, the trend is toward the largest pieces of glass possible within an operable system that can disappear into a pocket when opened.

a teak loveseat paired with a set of teak chairs creates classic outdoor seating.

Durability, comfort and design are the hallmarks of Lee Industries’ handcrafted outdoor furnishings. For nearly 50 years, the furniture manufacturer has provided quality, american-made indoor and outdoor furnishings, forging the path and setting the bar in how products should be constructed, how they should look and how they should feel. Bondi Coley, Lee Industries marketing director, gives insight into today’s outdoor environments, from the allure of fre pits to the importance of removable slipcovers to versatility of ottomans.

Adding an extra dining or living space outdoors has just increased the total square footage of your home!

White is the new taupe. “with our washable, slipcovered pieces, people are not afraid to put white on anything that stays outdoors,” says Bondi Coley, Lee Industries marketing director. “white is now the go-to color.” About those slipcovers… arguably the best choice for outdoor furnishings, as they can be removed and washed. Mobility. Outdoor casters on dining chairs allow for movement on decks, patios and around pool areas. Mix + match. a canopied sofa, paired with a set of track arm swivel chairs, looks great against the backdrop of a teak counter table and teak counter stools. hence, a cohesive space doesn’t have to be homogenous. An efcient accessory. Outdoor ottomans add extra seating as well as extra storage for outdoor trays, dishes, ice buckets or towels. Crowd pleaser. “Fire pits have become a staple in outdoor spaces,” Coley says. “with our array of outdoor swivel chairs, it makes lounging outside an absolute dream.” A quick tip. adding colorful throw pillows to an existing sofa or chair can quickly give the homeowner an updated look for their outdoor space; a few outdoor ottomans or bongo stools to add extra seating and storage will also give an easy update.

Tell me about your color concept. I tend to gravitate toward blue and green tones, but the architect had installed the deep teal grass-cloth wallcovering before I came on board, setting the tone for a chic, moody space. The client knew she wanted a large-scale statement piece and we found just that in the nearly 6 square feet of contemporary art—which creates a stunning visual statement.

You’re originally from Florida. Is there anything absolutely Floridian in your approach to design? I grew up in Northern Florida where there are still hints of Southern culture, which is why I like to design with a sense of warmth and hospitality. The combination of the classic furniture shapes mixed with contemporary art sum up my aesthetic—an appreciation for the past made relevant for today.

Did the design evolve naturally? I wanted to keep the rest of the room low-key, as to not distract from the artwork and architecture. Having a mix of textures is key in creating an interesting space. For example, the cotton-velvet on the chairs complements the painting, while the teal cording adds subtle interest by highlighting the sculptural shape of the chairs. The neutral sisal rug warms up the room and is easily replaceable if it gets too worn. All of the elements are elegant yet subtle enough to let the painting take center stage.

history revived living room

LookING To THE PAsT, ArCHITECT DouGLAs VANDErHorN ENLIVENs A NEW HoME WITH HIsTorICAL DETAILs.

Walk me through the process when dreaming up this space. This home was a recent build, but by ensuring historical authenticity throughout, it’s not noticeably new to its surrounding historic community. I love English Tudorstyle homes, but when designing them I work at keeping the rooms bright. I was able to do that with large leaded casement windows with transoms and a generous bay window. A high ceiling with a plaster tracery pattern makes it distinctively Tudor.

Do other elements lend to the Tudor style? A tracery ceiling is very common in this style home. I went through many sketches before arriving at a defining pattern. The Gothic oak architraves were customcarved, accented with trefoil panels surrounded by a leaf motif that carries personal significance for the client. By keeping the detail modest with less ornamentation, we were able to provide a backdrop for a more contemporary interior.

What defining components most accurately illustrate your personal aesthetic? The historical and architectural authenticity of this space most reflects my work. Ensuring that the architectural palette isn’t apparently new makes this space a true classic. I worked hard to get the floor plan, exterior look and spaces just right, and then detailed things very selectively as it’s all about filtering. I usually try to avoid having too much of a good thing.

period piece hallway

A DIMINuTIvE ENTRy PROvES ITSElF SuBSTANTIAl THANKS TO THOuGHTFul FEATuRES AND PROPORTIONS By ARCHITECT ANNE FAIRFAx.

The architecture is stunning, displaying impeccable attention to detail. It is a bit of a monumental celebration of a door opening isn’t it? This particular house is quite narrow so I paid careful attention to use detail of a very small scale in order to trick the eye into thinking you were in a larger place. This house had been stripped of all of its architectural features, so we started from scratch by reinventing the exuberance of the general period of the house, which emphasized loads of classical ornamentation.

Were there any happy accidents here? We rescued the mahogany newel post from a dumpster many years ago, and it finally found its home in this townhouse. Original to the period and neighborhood, the post is the first thing you see upon entrance—distracting the eye from the narrow dimensions of the hallway as it’s such a lovely object.

Tell me about the details of the moldings. I’m quite partial to the wall color, Nantucket Fog, that sets off the moldings so well. The details on the doorway are finely wrought palmettes with leaf-and-dart cornice. There is no deep meaning other than the sheer beauty of catching the light and casting subtle shadows. I took a bit of artistic license by modeling the frieze ornament and cornice a bit more finely than is actually appropriate to the Greek Revival period of the house, allowing the eye plenty of places to rove about. Many architects are afraid of ornamentation, but in my book, it is just as important as getting the floor plan to work or making sure the plumbing is in the right place!

an in-depth exploration into what’s new and notable in kitchen design. written bY arlyn hernandez

THE NEW MODERN KITCHEN when it comes to modern kitchen design, there are two distinct schools of thought: one embraces the simplicity and sheer functionality with zeal, while the other remains unconvinced, preferring the welcoming aesthetic of a more traditional style. regardless of your persuasion, there’s no denying the downright impressive innovations and design gusto being cooked up as of late that could convert even the most classically inclined. From mechanically operated walls that conceal gadgets and storage to intuitive appliances that learn and adapt to your cooking methods, discover the latest ingredients making up the new modern kitchen.


1

CULINARY

ARTS

With the kitchen arising as the new epicenter of the home, bolder design is spicing up this bustling room. In this Hamptons residence, here and below, New York designer Guillaume Gentet created a personality-filled space using custom cabinetry by Effeti USA with whispers of lilac throughout. “People forget that the inside of a cabinet should be as pretty as the outside,” he says, referencing the violet (Pantone 7444 UP) of the island, which is echoed in the shelving concealed behind the wood panels. The owners’ art, like the Buddha sculptures by Marlene Rose, continues the artistic flavor of the room’s aesthetic.

2

THE FAUCET Every line and visible design element counts in a minimal space. Therefore, making major impact with a sculptural faucet, like Franke’s new Planar 8 Flex semi-professional version, is essential. The masculine, squared-off silhouette doesn’t just pack a visual punch, though; its 360-degree swiveling spout is highly functional and allows for maximum movement around the sink.

Color doesn’t have to be reserved for tableware and accents anymore: Large appliances, such as Bertazzoni’s Pro48 6G dualfuel range (shown here in a mouthwatering orange), are getting their turn in the shade game and becoming increasingly popular as owners seek to imprint their personal stamp onto every room of their home.

MASTER

CHEF

Designing kitchens for the past 40 years, it’s safe to say that Chicago-based Mick De Giulio knows a thing or two about what makes for successful culinary quarters. Here, the maestro lends some counsel and maps out what’s currently on his radar.

There’s no excuse for having a disorganized kitchen today with all the great solutions out there. What are some of your favorites? Motorized doors to hide nooks for small appliances and creating charging stations by putting USB ports inside of drawers are a go-to of mine. Another is a cabinet I recently designed called Metal Boy (shown above) for keeping pots and pans organized and accessible. It has recessed LED lighting so cookware is easily viewable and becomes like sculptural pieces. Metal seems to have become part of your signature look. How do you keep it from feeling too sterile? I love using silver nickel and polished stainless steel, but I always layer different materials and textures into my designs, sometimes even with very subtle changes. Honed and brushed stones, hand-scraped woods and fabrics for soft seating add comfort and are a great complement to the shine of metals. What’s exciting you right now? Steam ovens and induction cooktops. There’s so much you can do in a steam oven, from baking bread to roasting juicy meats, and induction has so many things going for it as far as safety and heat control.

FRONT

Modern kitchens tend to get a bad rap for being cold and industrial, but new material combinations are changing that rather unfair judgment. Maintaining a streamlined look, this design by Eggersmann integrates solid American walnut along the space’s periphery to soften the highgloss cabinetry and hard quartz surfaces.


THE LOOK / THE REPORT

7 talking KiTcHEn TEcH Gone are the days of one-dimensional appliances. Ranges no longer just cook; they’ll send a text to the family when dinner is ready. Need to pre-heat your oven but you’re still at the store? Your smartphone can get that started so it’s at the perfect temperature when you get home. Here, Lamont Gaines, showroom manager of Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery in Boca Raton, Florida, breaks down the newest innovations.

Smartphone capabilities are infiltrating the appliance market. What are some highlights? The ability to measure the temperature of your meal in the oven without being anywhere near the kitchen—let alone at home—via a digital thermometer is huge right now. Also, you can now download recipes into your oven and watch cooking tutorials via a Wi-Fi-enabled touch-screen panel on your range, which is so useful for the amateur cook.

Let’s talk about innovations in cooking. What new options exist? If you have the space to accommodate it, steam ovens (like Miele’s ContourLine M Touch Combi-Steam version at left) should be strongly considered. There are models that let you store personal profiles to steam your vegetables or fish to the exact tenderness preferred. Wine storage and serving systems are becoming more prominent in the custom kitchen. Any suggestions? Dual-zone refrigeration is the only way to go to keep your whites, reds and champagnes at the appropriate temperatures. There are also dispensing systems—check out the Discovery WineStation by Dacor—that will serve just the right amount, from a taste to a full glass, and preserve the freshness of the rest of the unused bottle.

Indoor-outdoor living is king right now. Blurring the lines between inside and out is particularly successful in the kitchen, where incorporating plein-air cooking, al fresco dining and edible gardens satiates an entertaining-rich lifestyle. In this California home, I-Ching Ueng—designer and manager of Poggenpohl’s San Francisco showroom—stuck to a sleek design as not to compete with the lush garden just through the disappearing sliding glass doors. Silestone countertops in White Zeus Extreme and a stainless-steel panel backsplash reflect the sunlight to further enliven the space.

THE HARDWARE Stainless steel may reign supreme, but gold and bronze details are giving the long-standing heavyweight a run for its money. The warm and luxurious finishes add a definite je ne sais quoi and can be employed on cabinets— like Rocky Mountain Hardware’s Empire pulls—or plumbing fixtures, and bridge the gap between the modern and traditional design arenas.

SURFACE

Slab stone such as marble and quartz has long been the go-to countertop material in the modern kitchen for its uniform look. Though its dominance in this arena certainly isn’t subsiding, there’s been a movement toward mixing it up with more personality-driven tilework for backsplashes, floors and feature walls. Hand-painted tiles lend a human touch to an otherwise pristine space. Though be advised: The graphic nature of this look is not for the demure design enthusiast.

AGENDA

A brawny hood has always been a staple in a well-stocked kitchen, but they can be a bit of a blemish if the intent is to keep everything as simple and unassuming as possible. Enter the decorative ventilation option. These new devices are masters of disguise, hiding in plain sight in the shape of chandeliers and lighting fixtures, disappearing into countertops at the push of a button, or taking sculptural form like in Elica’s Space model that not only looks completely unexpected, but is also 35-percent quieter than traditional designs.


THE LOOK / THE REPORT

11 stable shelf

The customary formula for kitchen design reads as follows: upper and lower cabinetry, pantry, large appliances. However, open shelving concepts are breaking that mold. “We wanted a sense of openness and casual ease,” says California designer Vanessa Alexander of the kitchen space shown at left she remodeled for a Malibu beach house. “I avoid upper cabinetry as much as possible. Floating shelving provides a greater sense of space and can be dressed in such a flexible way with practical and décor items that lend life, color and texture.” Tip: Stick to a cohesive palette for any tableware on display to achieve a polished look.

Induction cooking has been a burgeoning trend in culinary technology over the past few years, competing side by side with its electric and gas counterparts. The newest offerings, such as Gaggenau’s CX 491 full-surface cooktop, right, are taking the already beloved advantages of speed and safety to the next level with intuitive free-positioning abilities. What exactly does that mean? Place cookware anywhere on the surface, and the stove will instantly detect its individual location, size and shape, heating up only that precise spot to the specified temperature. It’s so inherently practical, it’ll make you wonder where this functionality has been all along.

The kitchen drawer has been elevated countless notches with storage solutions that would make even the most meticulous homeowner weak in the knees. Shown here is SieMatic’s aluminum interior accessories system, which features an integrated spice rack, USB connections, an angled knife block and anti-slip inserts. Fully customizable, no space is lost, keeping every spatula, cutting board and measuring spoon in the order best suited to the user.

Families are gravitating toward the kitchen more and more for all aspects of living. Homework is worked on at the island, conversations are had at the breakfast bar, so it’s no wonder that the call for a more fluent dialogue between rooms is being answered. Snaidero’s Way design, for instance, showcases an open library unit and styling evocative of furniture. Modular pieces let the homeowner lay out any footprint they want to create a seamless transition from one area to the next.

AS k T he exp e rt What are your favorite styles to work on and why? I am drawn to a modern aesthetic mainly because I see it as an advancement of our culture. I think it offers a more creative problem-solving approach, an asymmetry that feels more organic and less staid.

Christopher LaGuardia, rLA, ASLA Ian Hanbach, rLA, ASLA Daniel thorp, rLA, ASLA Water Mill, New York 631.726.1403 info@laguardiadesign.com laguardiadesign.com

the LaGuardia desiGn Group LaGuardia Design began life in 1994 as a one-man landscape architecture firm in a small workspace in Southampton, New York. From the beginning, the ambition was to create beautiful and enduring landscapes. Good fortune came in finding skilled designers to create the firm’s sustainable, simple, aesthetic environments. Christopher LaGuardia, the firm’s founder, gradually grew his company, methodically recruiting new talent directly out of college into a rigorous apprenticeship program. Over time, the structure of the firm formed into the classic pyramid, with partners, senior associates and associates. The LaGuardia style and design language continually evolved over the following two decades to create a brand recognized for its environmental stewardship, historical reference and meticulously planned, yet uncontrived, outdoor spaces. “We are making an increasingly conscious effort to build sustainable landscapes that are not only beautiful to experience, but are far more integrated into the natural processes taking place on both the site and its adjacencies,” LaGuardia says. “Our designs express the historical aspect of a site in a way that is informative and provides a more meaningful experience by developing a site-specific, communal sense of place.” Behind the artistry of crafting art-worthy landscapes lies a complex integration of variables, including information from clients, engineers, architects and government agencies. The result is an intricate amalgam of design, science and statute. “The act of drawing and designing a landscape on paper is an abstract process, and although the drawings tend to look very beautiful, the reality is that it’s only a guide for what happens next,” LaGuardia explains, “which is a full-scale construction site, ultimately forming a beautiful and functional outdoor place.”

The limited plant palette sets a simple and calm backdrop for the sculptures while celebrating the view beyond. BOTTOM: A modern raised rim-flow pool paired with surrounding clipped boxwood hedges strikes a counterpoint with the native meadow grasses.

What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? We strive to create well-thought-out solutions that offer meaningful value to the project. As a consultant, our goal is to collaborate with architects and designers, so that the overall sum is far greater than its parts. What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? The office culture that we have created at LaGuardia Design is a good model for young designers, so they can develop in a way that is mentally and spiritually healthy.

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

Michael Derrig, RLA 1796 Sag Harbor Turnpike Sag Harbor, New York 631.725.0018 mderrig@landscapedetailsinc.com landscapedetails.com

Landscape detaiLs Nature is the subject matter and medium of landscape architect and designer Michael Derrig’s daily work. His reverence for the outdoors is evident in his simplistically beautiful and elegant landscapes. “My love of trees, my passion for landscape design and of course, the fact that I get to go outside and ‘play’ brought me to this profession,” the designer enthuses. Derrig’s firm, Landscape Details, is based in Sag Harbor, New York, and is recognized for its imaginative, pragmatic and purposeful outdoor environments. The “majestic beauty” of the East End of Long Island, as Derrig notes, has instilled a great responsibility to be stewards of the landscape, enhancing this natural beauty with designs that lend themselves to seamless integration of built elements and the natural environment. “We strive to create balance and harmony between nature and the home,” he says. “Some clients want an organized, subtle design; others really want to make a statement. In either case, balance and harmony are critical.” The full-service firm, exhaustive in its scope of services—including landscaping, site work, masonry, structures and lighting—offers insight and expertise at all stages of the design, from conceptualizations to long-term maintenance and care. “We’re incredibly committed to the evolution of the landscape project. How the plan will unfold over time,” Derrig asserts. Known for creative problem solving, Landscape Details is driven by solution-oriented designs that will endure and develop. “I enjoy combining the knowledge I have of native plants, and how they’ll respond to time and weather, with the creativity of the design process,” Derrig says. “My real pleasure comes from turning design constraints into design opportunities.”

Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Form follows function. Years of experience have taught us where to place design elements in the landscape. That’s imperative—you need to understand how weather and time will impact the project’s success. What are you working on next? We’ve just bought a new property and will be moving to a visible East Hampton location. This new space will allow us to better showcase our work and provide an opportunity to give back with a vegetable garden that will help supply our local food pantry.

POOL BuILDERS

AS k T hE exP e rt What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? We start by getting to know our clients and their families and focusing more on lifestyle needs than pool features. Building a swimming pool is a significant investment, and it's very personal.

David Lionetti Owner and President 393 West Avenue Stamford, Connecticut 203.967.1203 shorelinepools.com

Shoreline PoolS, inc. Established nearly 50 years ago by visionary pool designer and builder Lou Lionetti, Shoreline Pools is steeped in a familial history centered on service, craftsmanship and tradition. The family-owned and operated company, now led by Lou’s sons David and Mark Lionetti, continues to be guided by these time-honored tenets. “Our father founded the company in 1969, and both of us have been working here since high school,” says David, owner and president. “As a family-owned and operated business, we take great pride in delivering the highest quality workmanship and personalized customer service.” The Stamford, Connecticut-based firm, one of the largest of its kind in the state, operates on founder Lou Lionetti’s premise that swimming pools should be an extension of one’s home; a reflection of style; and a personal oasis. In turn, Shoreline Pools delivers a bespoke product, avoiding the notion of pre-designed, template-like pools and spas. “Every swimming pool we build is custom-designed for each client,” David says. Shoreline’s award-winning designs, totaling more than 4,000, are found throughout the Tri-State Area and beyond, reaching Greenwich to Rhinebeck and as far as Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and the Bahamas. Over the course of five decades, the Lionettis have built strong relationships in the community, from landscape architects to town permitting departments, in order to provide clients the best service possible. “The advantage of these connections is seen in the smooth progress of our projects,” David says. “We also have the largest service team in the Northeast, and our technicians are among the most highly trained in the industry, on call 24-7 to serve our customers.”

BOTTOM: The elegant, curved-edge pool design follows the natural landscape to capture a stunning 270-degree coastal view.

What do you like most about your job? No two projects are ever the same. Building swimming pools combines engineering, design, chemistry and a little bit of town politics in one profession. It makes going to work challenging and exciting every day. Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Good swimming pool and outdoor living design strikes a seamless balance between form and function, complementing the home's architecture and natural landscape while delivering custom features that are specific to the client's needs.

Describe the philosophy behind your firm. I keep it simple: always be straight-up with all parties involved and offer my honest opinion. Provide impeccable service and the most cutting-edge marketing and technology available. Strive to be the most knowledgeable, and most importantly, get the deal done. Have you noticed recent trends in your marketplace? What are they? People are building more open floor plans, larger kitchens/great rooms and extensively finished lower levels with all the bells and whistles. Integrating the exterior living space more with bi-folding glass doors, outdoor dining, fireplaces and kitchens. What is most critical when buying a house? Location and value. But do not get too emotionally involved in the negotiations, do not pass up on a property that you love at a price you are willing to pay because of ego.

The CorCoran Group Hamptons real estate broker Susan Breitenbach brings tailored, personal solutions to each client with a deft and capable touch. The 26-year real estate veteran and 35-year Hamptons resident offers a unique perspective into the local residential market ranging from Quogue to Montauk to every seaside hamlet in between. Breitenbach, a leading agent in the Hamptons, has been routinely ranked as one of the Top Agents by Sales Volumes in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal, including No. 2 in the U.S. in 2012, and is the only broker who has ranked No. 1 for two consecutive years in the Hamptons. She has handled more than $3 billion in real estate transactions and in 2014, sold well over $300 million. Further accolades include being Corcoran’s Top Producer of the Year in 2014 and consecutively from 2009 through 2012. She attributes her love of people to her success. “I have always loved working with people, and I cherish the friendships I have made as a result of my profession,” she says. A distinguishing trait of Breitenbach’s is a total-honesty approach to business, resulting in a strong track record of satisfied buyers and sellers. “It is very important to have an agent who is very knowledgeable and will explain the market—and one who will give an honest opinion and advice on the pros and cons of each property,” she says. Breitenbach’s insight into home building has been refined by her husband, who owns a high-end residential construction firm in the Hamptons. “My husband, who has an incredible sense of space and design, has taught me the differences in craftsmanship and quality of construction, which is invaluable,” she says. Whether marketing the most expensive home in the country (which she did in Bridgehampton) or finding the perfect renter for a modest country cottage, Breitenbach demonstrates immense skill in achieving each client’s objectives with the same determination and commitment.

Zicana Known for their beautiful and naturally varied compositions, gemstones are most often used for making jewelry. In the Marasco family, however, these earthborn treasures are tools for which to break the boundaries of invention. Francesco Marasco, CEO and president of New York-based Zicana, creates not only beautiful jewelry, but also surfaces, décor and accessories—all from gemstones that look as alluring as they sound, like blue tiger eye and apple jasper. The crafting of gemstone surfaces has long been a family legacy for Marasco, who started his own firm after a tenure working for and eventually running his family’s stone boutique, Elegante Granite and Marble. In 2011, Marasco had a series of revelations about the use of rarified gemstones: ideas about new mediums, techniques and applications. “I had an epiphany about the potential of using rarified gemstones in trends never before seen by the world,” he enthuses. “This realization collided with my heart’s ambition to develop a lifestyle brand, resulting in the birth of Zicana.” Today, Marasco’s novelty luxury products can be found in the Zicana flagship gallery in Long Island. “Since its inception, Zicana has worked with some of the most prestigious designers and companies in the world to bring timeless designs and creations to those who share in our appreciation for quality, elegance and art,” he asserts. Specializing in made-tomeasure gemstone surfaces and exotic, bespoke jewelry, the Zicana team is recognized for their singular masterpieces, and for their customer focus. Offering consulting, complete customization and installation services, along with techniques that are at the forefront of innovative craftsmanship, the firm provides a comprehensive experience. “We are continually seeking new ways to demonstrate our passion for creativity and high style,” he adds.

BOTTOM: The Dominatore chair is a luxurious, hand-carved French settee with blue velvet fabric, antique gold-leaf-finished wood and blue lapis gemstone accents.

What are you working on next? We are expanding our home collection to consist of lamps and tables, among many other accent items that will all be made of gems combined with other elements. We are also initiating an accessory line consisting of pocketbooks and belts with gems as the focus of the designs. What do you like most about your job? There are no limits as to what I can do with the team around me. I’m excited about the abilities we have in the world today, which enable us to create our own designs and fulfill the passions of our customers.

Artist Kcho’s Cuban flag, made to look like makeshift rafts, not only nods to the owner’s heritage but is also a commentary on emigration. It hangs above a Kravet fabric-wrapped 1960 Adrian Pearsall bench from Hamptons Antique Galleries. A rolling paper work by Jac Leirner is at left.


T

he relationship between designer and client is always an intimate one. Just ask New York interior designer Eddie Lee. “He introduced me to his parents as his first wife,” he jokes, speaking of his client, a Cuban merchant banker and wine importer in his mid-40s. After designing six previous residences together—beginning during Lee’s 10-year stint with legendary decorator Greg Jordan—and living through the client’s marriage, birth of a child and eventual divorce, “I just know what he wants,” he says. Primarily, what Lee’s client has consistently desired over nearly 15 years were spaces in which to display his ever-growing collection of contemporary art—his greatest passion. “I bought my first piece in the summer of 1992 with student loan money,” recalls the homeowner. “At first the collection was heavily Cuban-centric. Then, I branched into general Latin American art, and starting in the early 2000s, I began looking outside of that.” Currently, the collection is evenly split, he says, between Latin art and contemporary art of other nationalities. Appropriately, the SoHo loft the client purchased was at 420 West Broadway, “the most important gallery building in New York, bar none,” he believes. Originally built in 1900, the building eventually became the first and most prominent space to house the galleries that put SoHo at the center of New York’s art scene during the 1980s and ’90s. In 1977, pioneering art dealers Ileana Sonnabend and Leo Castelli opened exhibition spaces here and, together with other gallerists who followed, such as Mary Boone, created the market now referred to as blue chip. This represented, among many other bold-face names: Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Gilbert & George, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Christo, Julian Schnabel and Jeff Koons. In 1999, the building had been converted to residential lofts after many SoHo galleries decamped to Chelsea. So when the time came to start making this blank slate a home, Lee and his client decided on authenticity as a recurring theme throughout. “We wanted to stay true to its industrial roots,” explains Lee of their intentions. “I love seeing all the cracks, the steel ties holding the walls together, the original wood windowsills.” Collaborating with architect Edward Wendt and builder Ash Suri, Lee and his discerning client devised a plan that preserved that history, but also ushered it into a new millennium. The owner and design team appreciated the existing industrial features such as exposed-brick walls and a rustic wood ceiling beam that runs the length of the apartment. Others were less fortuitous. “The apartment only has windows at the front and back,” says Wendt, “and we wanted to get light into the central area,” which they accomplished by enclosing the gym at the rear in glass so as not to block light offered through a rear window. Lee then turned his attention to finishes and furnishings. “In every interior I’ve done for my client, blue has been

“WE WANTED TO STAY TRUE TO ITS INDUSTRIAL ROOTS.” -EDDIE LEE a theme,” says the designer, who suggested radically altering the fireplace by surrounding it with a wall of handmade bricks glazed in a vibrant cobalt blue. Yet even the best marriages have their disagreements, and this proved to be one of them. “I pushed back pretty strongly,” remembers the owner. “If it were anybody else I would have said no immediately. But I did say to him, ‘Don’t be upset if I knock it down.’ ” In the end, he concedes, “It’s one of those things I love the most,” especially because it proved an ideal foil for a favorite Rashid Johnson painting. The blue acts as the main accent color throughout, set against the relaxing neutrals that the homeowner craved. As for the furnishings, it was for this project in particular that aesthetically the duo had seemingly evolved in their choices. Previous projects had more traditional environments inflected with Art Deco flair. Now, the homeowner favored something more contemporary but still grounded in history. “I had grown to like midcentury furniture since our last project and saw its value,” says the owner. But neither Lee nor his client wanted a predictable greatest-hits survey of midcentury modernism, so the designer also mixed comfortable present-day Italian furniture into the array of classics, thus bringing the look into the 21st century. Custom pieces, such as an oversize dining table modeled after one the client had seen at a French château, emphasize the rustic-industrial chicness of the beam and columns. But Lee didn’t want to overdo it. So in other areas where wood was deployed, he amped up the more sophisticated elements. The custom kitchen cabinetry and barn door that rolls across to conceal storage, for example, were both fabricated from bleached walnut that was sanded and oiled to give them a sleeker look to encourage balance. For now, the relationship between the table and the kitchen is still, as they say, in development. Lee characterizes his client as “an astute entertainer,” who noticed the bottleneck that forms when guests gather around the kitchen at dinner parties. The two are now talking about raising the table to bar height, thus making the prepping and eating spaces feel more contiguous. Lasting marriages, after all, must continue to evolve. luxe interiors + design / 159

O

n any given day you’ll find Lee and Cindy Milazzo happily surveying the artwork illuminating the walls of their contemporary gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut. Named after their two sons, the Samuel Owen Gallery has quickly become a destination for notable designers, collectors and casual shoppers alike. “People are drawn into the gallery because they like what they see,” says Lee, who has owned the business for 12 years with his wife, Cindy. “It’s the ultimate compliment.” Samuel Owen is home to some of the more formative artists of this generation. Lee, who possesses the curatorial eye for the space, acquires work from new artists as well as established superstars like Damien Hirst and Shepard Fairey—one of the most popular street artists currently on the scene. Cindy, on the other hand, admits that she is more behind-thescenes yet brings a certain feminine vibe to their space. “We are the only gallery on the Avenue selling street art,” she says. “We love everything we sell, but it also has to be marketable.” Both Lee and Cindy insist that they only show artwork that they would actually collect, and they speak proudly of their growing roster of accomplished living artists, including Peter Tunney. “I was a collector of his work so I brought him on board four years ago,” says Lee. “At the time, I honestly didn’t know if the market would ‘get it.’ I’ve since sold hundreds of his paintings.” Certainly, the cutting-edge duo appear to have their finger on the pulse that runs through Greenwich and admit that watching emerging talent grow and succeed is the greatest reward. “We get to be a part of this fabric, and that’s really fun and fulfilling,” says Lee. This summer, the Milazzos are forging another path by opening their second location in Nantucket, where they plan to offer the same high-caliber roster of artists, with exclusive rights to sell Hirst’s iconic work on the island. Starting out, Lee and Cindy simply wanted to sell art that they found captivating and just plain cool. They ended up, however, giving the once-vanilla Greenwich Avenue an edgier feel, where the de rigueur is to go and see and be seen.

T

here is one hard-and-fast rule when looking for an apartment in New York City: Location is key. So when John and Barbara Cavoores left their house in the burbs for a tony apartment in the city, they fell hard for the Chelsea Mercantile—one of the area’s most sought-after buildings. Originally from New York, the Cavooreses hopped around the world as they raised their three children, spending a few years each in such places as Southern California, London and New Jersey, but they both knew that as soon as the kids left the nest, Manhattan would be their ultimate playground. So when the time came, the couple promptly moved into their desired location. In Manhattan, century-old industrial buildings that were eventually turned into top-of-the-line condos dot the grid, and the Mercantile building—with its historical background and high-profile celebrity inhabitants—is truly no exception. Such a hip address would need an enticing interior, however, and the Cavooreses quickly realized they had to up the ante in the design department. So they hired downtown interior designer Jenny Wolf to help give their 100-year-old space a warm welcome into the 21st century. “The views are incredible, and the tall windows allow for an abundance of light to enter the space,” says interior designer Jenny Wolf, who studied at Parsons and cut her teeth in visual merchandising at Ralph Lauren before starting her own firm a handful of years ago. Wolf, along with project

manager Dakota Willimon, set out to completely transform what she dubbed “the yellow Sheetrock box.” Says the designer, “I knew we could convert it into an elegant, serene retreat from the cacophony of the city below, but it was going to take some work.” Hoping to modernize the floor plan and make the apartment more functional, the couple—with the help of builder Scott Sassoon—enlisted architect Scott Michael Stapleton to guide the eventual transformation. “It was very enclosed with a partitioned-off dining room,” says Stapleton about the original floor plan. “We opened that up so both the living and dining rooms could become one gigantic space that also opens to the kitchen. Now you have views all the way back to the middle of the apartment.” To capitalize on the high ceilings, the team added crown moldings throughout and, in the main living room, a coffered ceiling with light blue inset panels. When it came time to furnish the apartment, Wolf completely customized nearly every piece in the home, drawing inspiration from her formative years growing up surrounded by both French antiques and contemporary furniture, as her parents were in the furniture business. “We wanted the home to have an eclectic feel—the refined mixed with the casual,” says Wolf. “However, while the furnishings had to be beautiful, they also had to be comfortable. The living room sofa is wide and deep, and the fabrics have a range of linens and velvets, which are soft and relaxed.” To add even more airiness, Wolf chose an ethereal color palette filled with blue, gray and green tones as accent colors. She also employed a multitude of textures, such as Belgian linen window treatments and sisal rugs, to lend a relaxed feel to the home. “As you walk into the different spaces, you get a little surprise,” says Barbara. “And that’s what we really wanted for our home.” Meanwhile, the apartment’s long, lackluster entry hallway—which originally had yellow walls and simple white doors—was transformed to create a dramatic entrance into the living area. “We did a lacquered Venetian plaster wall paint in the foyer,” says Sassoon. “It was a delicate process, and multiple coats needed to be applied.” Wolf adds that the lacquered walls reflect light in the windowless space, “which is really enchanting,” she says. The team also inset antiqued-mirrored panels on the doors to make the space really sparkle. luxe interiors + design / 321


Jenny Wolf Interiors designed the cabinetry in the kitchen, which is covered in honed Carrara marble countertops and a white milk-glass backsplash to give the small space luster. The barstools are by TK Collections, and the hanging light fixtures are by Currey & Company. The kitchen was outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator.

To give the kitchen a loft-like feel, faux brick was added and then distressed to create an aged look. The La Cornue range is paired with a custom hood from Rangecraft, designed by Jenny Wolf Interiors. The shelves, made of reclaimed wood with antique brackets, were also custom-designed.

Wolf decided to sand the top and paint the legs a blue-tinted whitewash to tie into the overall theme of the kitchen. Dinner guests vie for a spot on the comfy banquette by Lee Industries. The decorative plates by Astier de Villatte were purchased at John Derian Company.

Gourd ceramic lamps by Festoni sit atop side tables by Vanguard Furniture.

Although most of the furnishings are custom, Wolf couldn’t resist incorporating a rustic old farm table that already belonged to Barbara—but added her own signature spin. “We stained the wood top,” says the designer, and had the bottom distressed and painted a light blue.” Barbara loves the way its new blue hue brings out the color in the kitchen cabinets. Because Barbara is a passionate cook and entertainer, the team gave her what she calls a serious kitchen. “She had a specific kitchen layout that she wanted, so we just followed her lead,” Stapleton said. Originally, a peninsula jutted into the space; that was removed and instead replaced with an island to create better flow. Then, to maximize the ceiling height,

the cabinetry was extended to give the couple the storage space that they needed. The finishing touch was adding the crown jewel of high-end appliances: a beautiful La Cornue oven. “They really enjoy the loft-like look, and he wanted exposed brick,” Wolf adds. “So we put some in the kitchen, behind the oven, and had it perfectly distressed so it looks like it’s been there for a million years.” From the beginning, the Cavooreses knew they needed a design to fit the long-standing, high-profile status of the Chelsea Mercantile, and in the end, they felt they got exactly what they wanted. “It was a go-big-or-gohome kind of moment for us,” says Barbara. They went big, and now they are right at home. L luxe interiors + design / 327

ESSENTIALS COLLECTION AND WAR CRAFT PHOTOS: COURTESY UHURU.

very piece of Uhuru Design’s furniture has a story to tell. The decade-old Brooklyn design firm has a knack for infusing its creations with a sense of innate familiarity by repurposing wood and creating avant-garde furniture for a new generation. For their acclaimed Coney Island line, co-founders Bill Hilgendorf and Jason Horvath use 70-year-old reclaimed boardwalk panels to create their designs. “Coney Island has such a rich history, so we felt like we just had to do something with it,” says Horvath. It doesn’t take long to recognize that the iconic Cyclone roller coaster— with its undulating curves and interweaving geometric stilts—is the inspiration behind Uhuru’s Cyclone lounger. A budding icon in its own right, the piece is now part of the permanent collection in the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. Several years ago, the duo partnered with Daniel Husserl to elevate the company’s ethos. “I’m motivated by the idea that what we do helps people reconnect with nature,” says Husserl, now Uhuru’s partner and resident sustainability expert. “A giant slab of wood or an antique pine coffee table is a constant reminder that the natural world is out there.” In addition to crafting a new line of concrete-casted outdoor furniture and a soon-to-be-launched bois-chic jewelry collection, the team have also commissioned such prestigious projects as the interior redesign of the Vice Media offices in trendy Williamsburg and the dining space of the Michelin-star Saul restaurant at the Brooklyn Museum. “They wanted the space to be warm and cozy, but also clean and modern because it’s inside of a museum,” says Hilgendorf. Despite their eclectic and ever-changing client roster, the company continues to exude the type of organic beauty that blends the past with the present—literally fusing aged wood with modern polished metals. “Working with natural wood is a very methodical and meditative process,” says Hildgendorf. “Once you cut or shape it, there is no going back.” And whereas woodwork is subtractive, metalwork excels in its immediacy. “This ability to join materials in the most elemental way drives ideas,” adds Horvath. “It’s art with electricity.”

S

tanding defiantly at the very edge of a rock peninsula on Long Island Sound is a New England shingle-style house that is steeped in history and beloved by the family who has charted its course for five decades and through two major renovations. “We’re only the second family to own it,” says the husband, who has spent numerous summers and holidays there since he was a child. “It’s surrounded on three sides by water, and you can’t see any other houses; it’s sort of like we’re on our own out here.” Looking out the bay window from the living room on the second floor, the house indeed feels almost like a yacht, with the rolling waves lapping against the seawall, just feet from the back entrance, as they would the hull of a grand vessel. “When you walk up the stairs and look through the living room to the water, it grabs you every time,” says the wife and mother of four. “But when we were lying in bed, we could literally feel the house sway when the wind was bad. It was in serious need of repair.” Built in 1890 as a carriage house for a neighboring property, the structure was converted into a residence around the turn of the century. After purchasing it from his father in the early 1990s, the owner turned to architect Cormac Byrne and builder Walter Lorenz to shore it up. Using the original gambrel roofline as a teeing-off point, Byrne essentially rebuilt the entire house, taking careful consideration to ensure that the new structure did not feel at odds with the home’s origins. To blend the new porte cochere on the front of the house with the original luxe interiors + design / 339


structure, for example, Byrne sourced locally mined Byram stone that matched the existing foundation; its copper covering provides a pleasing juxtaposition for the home’s slate roof, which includes salvaged original tiles intermingled with new ones. “We tried to make it look like it’s been there for a long time,” Byrne explains. Despite the addition of steel tie-downs, hurricaneproof windows and other features designed to secure it against the elements, the grand home proved no match for Hurricane Sandy, which devastated the first two floors less than a decade after the first renovation. “The waves came pounding in and basically destroyed one whole end of the house,” the husband says. At the recommendation of their longtime interior designer, Maureen Footer, the owners commissioned architect 340 / luxe interiors + design

Anthony Minichetti to address the damage. Minichetti, along with general contractor Gerry Holbrook, created a new home that would be more resilient against future storms. “We replaced the water-facing windows with out-swing windows,” says Holbrook. “The original ones, though stormproof, were in-swing, which made it easier for Sandy to open them up.” The team also reconfigured several areas to better meet the needs of the family. On the lower level, in place of a large foyer hall, Minichetti created a private caretakers apartment, an exercise room and a cabana bathroom that leads out to the swimming pool. “As the family grew into the home, they realized that they needed an entirely different floor plan for the lower level,” says Minichetti. “So we reorganized it for them.” The newly

Rattan counter stools from Walters Wicker contribute to the subtle nautical theme throughout the house and pick up the hue of the bright periwinkle blue lava-stone island countertop, which was the only item salvaged from the pre-renovated kitchen. The silver canisters are from The Drawing Room.


The owners’ existing table and Rattan Target chairs from McGuire provide a place in the garden room to take in the water views. The chairs in the adjacent seating area are covered in a Schumacher fabric from Lee Jofa. The wrought-iron chandelier is from Currey & Company.


The grand shingle-style home was inspired by the gambrel roof of the original house that stood on the site. Its stone foundation, a holdover from the original home, creates the appearance that the house is an indelible part of the rocky landscape. The four-level residence includes waterfront porches on three of its levels.

Below left: Landscape architect Daniel Sherman designed a scenic outdoor retreat, installed by landscape contractor Tommy Alfredo, of Alfredo LDC, for the family. Sherman used New York bluestone pavers to create a path leading to the top of the seawall. Below right: The oceanside swimming pool, built by Alfredo, was blasted out of the stone landscape and includes panoramic views of Long Island Sound.

Overlooking the water on one of the home’s several porches is a set of furniture from McKinnon and Harris with blue upholstery that complements many of the fabrics that interior designer Maureen Footer selected for the inside.


In the master bedroom, Stark’s Milan rug in Wheat acts as a neutral foil for the toile wallcovering and upholstered headboard fabric from Brunschwig & Fils. The pillow is from The Drawing Room; the throw is from Olley Court.


configured space also includes storage pantries and coat closets concealed behind wood paneling. “All of the utilitarian spaces support the grandeur of the upper level,” he explains. In place of the wood flooring on the lower level, Minichetti laid cream-and-brown limestone—a material more resistant to water—in a lattice pattern, an idea inspired by the wife. “We tried to install a little hurricaneproofing so that down the road we wouldn’t have to tear out the entire floor if it flooded again,” she explains. By working closely with Footer from the beginning, Minichetti was able to incorporate features and materials that were specifically designed to showcase the furnishings. In the foyer, for example, the architect created a wall niche that houses an antique oak chest of drawers and an English gilt gesso mirror in the manner of William Kent. “I am interested in design history, so I love things that have references to other eras,” Footer says.

“I thought it would be appropriate for a multigenerational house where things would conceivably have been layered over the generations.” On the second floor, the combined kitchen and family room were reconfigured to include a media area. French doors allow the informal living and dining areas to be joined with a garden room that Footer furnished with a pair of comfortable chairs and a small dining table where the owners enjoy hosting friends for intimate candlelit dinners. “We told Maureen that we wanted a sophisticated Bahamas look, and she came up with some really great ideas,” the wife says. For Footer, this project represents a triumph of renewal over destruction. “It was so overwhelming to walk into that house right after the storm,” the designer says. “The challenge was to keep the faith and retain a vision that ultimately this project was going to be a great opportunity for this phoenix to rise from the ashes.”

Below left: An antique silver tray with a vase of flowers and glass sculptures from The Drawing Room make for an elegant tableau on the master’s bedside table. Below right: On the master bedroom’s ornate marble mantel sits an array of tall vases from The Drawing Room and elegant ceramic pieces from Olley Court.

The 7th floor at the NYDC was abuzz as Luxe Interiors + Design partnered with TransForm to celebrate the spirit of great design. TransForm, one of the newcomers to the floor, hosted—along with its other fellow showrooms— hundreds of design-minded guests, who enjoyed assorted cocktails, appetizers and sweets while taking in the beautiful spaces and relaxing with friends. The weather outside was brutal, but the atmosphere inside was warm and inspired, proving that innovative design is alive and well at the NYDC.

The master wing to the east features sleeping chamber with freplace, sumptuous master bath and ample built in closets. Two bedrooms with baths ensuite plus a separate guest wing on the west, that closes off to the rest of the house, are wonderfully spaced to afford privacy.
