Inspiration For over two decades, Hudson Valley Lighting has been driven by Founder and Owner David Littman’s vision to produce timeless, heirloom-quality collections through a wide range of styles from the 19th and 20th centuries. ARTISAN CRAFTSMANSHIP
Hudson Valley Lighting is dedicated to artisan craftsmanship in creating masterful, high-quality designs with a focus on exceptional materials and careful attention to detail. The results speak for themselves—antique-quality lighting designs that look beautiful for generations to come.
When I see a piece of antique furniture, my imagination goes wild about its history and how the lines and details are still relevant today. Great design is something that spurs curiosity, imagination and emotion. — DAVID LITTMAN
Spanning in style from historic to artisan and transitional to contemporary, Hudson Valley Lighting uses high-grade materials such as solid cast brass, crystal, acrylic and blown glass. Superior manufacturing techniques, such as brass forging and hand-rubbed finishes, along with innovative technologies, allows one to appreciate the difference firsthand.
AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE
The quality and spectacular beauty of each Hudson Valley Lighting fixture can’t be found in more industrialized products. This unique experience, not typically seen in lighting design, provides its owners with a profound sense of pride and extreme appreciation for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Washington’s revolutionary style pays fitting homage to its namesake. Ornate and ethereal, the detailed curves of its artisan-crafted glassware are balanced by the pristine clarity of its inner framework.

Where Are You heAded? In the world of design, journeying—in some way, shape or form—is a constant. The turn around a showroom corner can lead to an inspiring discovery. An architectural structure rising from the landscape might spur a Moleskine full of ideas. From early September through late June, the pace in our industry is rapid-fire with fresh introductions in textiles, furniture, lighting, home accents and materials. To a large extent, this is what stimulates us, excites us, and nudges the design zeitgeist along. If ever there was a time to decelerate though, it is summer, when the pace slackens and so many escape to far-flung places (Will everyone be shopping in Europe this summer? Seems so). Taking a journey—whether it’s as modest as transitioning from your living room to the backyard for an afternoon, or more elaborate, as in two weeks overseas—further encourages the design dialogue. For those of us with a desire to remain curious, and sweep through life with a fine-tuned eye, the adventure never stops.

NEW+NOW GET TO KNOW FOUR TRI-STATE AREA INFLUENCERS AS THEY SHED LIGHT ON WHAT’S OF THE MOMENT IN DESIGN, ART AND ARCHITECTURE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA
What is the absolute best part of your job? I love that there’s still so very much to explore in the world of design. I like to delve into new eras and genres and learn all I can, and then move onto something completely different. There’s inspiration everywhere. In your closet: My Kelly and Birkin bags by Hermès are the most prized items in my wardrobe. I’ve had them for over 30 years and I never tire of them. Design pet peeve: No one should ever adopt a style that is not their own—you’ll end up living someone else’s life. Do what is right for you. Ones to watch: I love the landscape architecture coming from the firm of Phoenix-based Allison Colwell and Michele Shelor. The company’s portfolio is filled with beautiful creations spearheaded by these two extremely creative women. On your shelf: My favorite design book is A House is Not a Home by Bruce Weber. I turn to it again and again. Color palette of the moment: People are going bold with pastels, introducing them in unexpected places like on lacquered tables, mirrors and art. Welcome trend: I’ve been so amazed and pleased that my clients lately seem to be opting for smaller homes. More and more, it’s becoming about quality over quantity of space. There’s an increased focus on things being well-built and meticulously designed. I own a ridiculous amount of... Pretty much everything! My home is in need of some serious editing, but I’m a sentimental fool, and I have a lot of trouble learning to let go! 098 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN
Dream job: I’ve always wanted to restore a building by late Chicago-based architect David Adler and incorporate a collection of great contemporary art and furniture into it—much in the spirit of Frances Elkins’ interiors. Alessandra Branca is a renowned interior designer and perennial pot stirrer (specializing in a mean Carbonara sauce), who calls both New York and Chicago home.
What’s happening? There is so much cultural mashup right now—whether in music, fashion, art or interiors—that we are seeing some of the most innovative style mixology in history. New media has made everything available, all at the same time, and there isn’t a single genre not exploring this accessibility. Having a moment: Studio Job is super interesting; the way they are interpreting totemic heraldry in such a classical but irreverently Pop-art way seems to really reflect the age we are living in. Can’t get enough of… Comme des Garçons. The brand is endlessly exciting, from its runway shows to its retail model. There’s nothing cooler than the experience of shopping the collection at Dover Street Market or at their pop-up shops. Up next: My partner, Zachary Lynd, and I are in the process of launching Kizmet, a collaborative creative agency. We’re working on a largescale experiential shopping bazaar at the moment, curating and designing a truly unique experience that aims to break down the divides between retail, art and theater. Prized wardrobe possession: A vintage Sonia Rykiel chiffon dress dripping in pink ostrich feathers. It’s absolutely magical.
Images: Counterclockwise from top: Two expertly rendered living spaces by Alessandra Branca showcase the interior designer’s broad range of styles. Kelly Framel’s recommendations on theglamourai.com include a pair of embroidered Oscar de la Renta mules and a stay at Marfa, Texas-based hotel El Cosmico.
2 Go-to design reads: I have too many favorites to count: I live for books. If I had to pick three, they’d be—in no particular order—Peter Lindbergh’s Untitled 116, Emily King’s monograph of the work of Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak, titled M to M of M/M (Paris), and Bruce Weber’s Blood Sweat and Tears. Kelly Framel is a prolific fashion stylist and the creative director and editor behind the online destination theglamourai.com. While her love of harem pants is exuberantly documented, not many know Framel is actually a classically trained painter.

New York Design Center 200 Lexington Avenue Suite 814 • New York, NY 10016 Phone: 212-679-4341 • www.ejvictor.com
4 the entrepreneur jOhn edelman
One to watch: I have always been obsessed with the work of designer Piero Lissoni. I fall in love with everything he does and am beyond excited for Design Within Reach to launch a new collection with him later this year. What’s trending? The Brooklyn design scene is currently having a moment. The artisans who have made a home for themselves in the city are being discovered around the world, and history will remember them as having been a part of The Brooklyn Movement.
hot in new york: I’m so excited about the recent reopening of the Whitney and its new Renzo Piano building. One of the first major exhibitions in fall will feature Frank Stella, which should be amazing.
3 the artist
What’s intriguing you now in art? I was trained in interior design before I made the jump to painting, so I love when art is engaged with its environment. having a moment: Dustin Yellin definitely seems to be everywhere I look lately. His sculpture series with the New York City Ballet as part of their ongoing artist series was amazing, as was his recent installation at Armory Arts Week. 100 / luxe interiors + design
Keep an eye on: In addition to my painting, I do ceramics in my free time, so I love artists like Ann Agee, Francesca DiMattio and Shio Kusaka who incorporate the medium into their practices. South African ceramic artist Lauren Gelgor Kaplan is incredibly talented and one to watch out for, too. The things she can do with clay are beyond my comprehension. Worth the splurge: I’ve had my eye on the Dino floor lamp from Flair Home Collection for a while now. It is an Italian-made lamp with a white metal shade and brass legs that looks like an abstract bird. Great lighting is key to creating ambience, so it’s a must-have. It’s like a jewelry accessory for your interiors. On the horizon: There’s something about sculpture and the idea of bringing art to life in 3D that truly appeals to me. Plus, I’ve always wanted to try working in bronze. I’d love to take on a new challenge in addition to my work in charcoal and sumi ink. Artist Jenna Snyder-Phillips approaches her signature works with a former interior designer’s perspective, crafting pieces that feel wonderfully at home at home. Her dream collaboration would be working with a handbag company like Milly on a line of special-edition purses.
shop ’til you drop: My wife Bonnie and I always try to hit up our favorite antiques stores when we’re in town, including Lobel Modern, Mantiques Modern and Patrick Parrish. Then, we like to follow it up with dinner at Boqueria or drinks at my old favorite, Felix in SoHo. Current inspiration: I am so excited about what is coming out of the minds of the newest group of designers who are changing our view of American design, prolific makers like Brad Ascalon and Rich Brilliant Williing. I am humbled by their limitless creativity. Go-to summer event: The Annual Summer Party at architect Philip Johnson’s The Glass House in New Canaan is not to be missed. There’s nothing like it. recent design splurge: The newest addition to my home is a set of four wonderfully sculptural Eos lounge chairs. I’d also very much love to own the Chieftains chair by Finn Juhl. It’s a remarkable piece of furniture. John Edelman is the CEO of modern furnishings megabrand Design Within Reach. At his home in Connecticut, he owns a ridiculous amount of portable televisions from the 1950s, Weltron Model 2001 radios and vintage watches.
images: From top: Artist Jenna Snyder-Phillips has become well-recognized for her expert handling of bold, graphic elements, bursts of rich color and whimsical exploration of animal forms. Design Within Reach’s Soft Dog pendant and Eames shell chairs are examples of both the company and CEO John Edelman’s commitment to modern design.
jenna snyder - phillips headshot and photos: courtesy jenna snyder - phillips . john edelman headshot and photos: courtesy design within reach.
Favorite items in inventory: I love the Ven collection by Jens Risom and Chris Hardy because the meeting of a midcentury master and an up-and-coming designer to create a timeless piece may never happen again. I also love the new Morrison collection from Egg Collective. I can revel in the self-closing cabinets all day.

Brought together by a love of all things textile, Stacy Waggoner and Kate Reynolds teamed up to create a cutting-edge design studio offering fabrics, rugs and wallpaper motifs from top designers around the world. Now, almost a decade later, Studio Four NYC boasts some of the hottest names in textile design alongside emerging talents, with much of the duo’s success lying in their creative acuity for partnering with artists, innovators and risk-takers. This summer, Studio Four releases three not-to-be-missed lines that fit just that mold. Designer-painter Rebecca Atwood first burst onto the scene—paintbrush in hand—captivating her Instagram audience one bespoke pillow and dreamy watercolor print at a time. Her artistry soon led to a partnership between Atwood and Studio Four, one that has since developed into a blooming design venture as the Cape Cod native sets to release her debut collection of hand-painted and marbleized fabrics with the studio. “Her textiles are so chic and livable,” says Reynolds. “Be on the lookout for her wallpaper collection to launch soon.” Just when you thought leather had nothing new to offer, Brit Kleinman, of Brooklyn’s Avo, enters the field, proving the possibilities have only just begun: Her jaw-dropping block-printed cowhides, branded with bold, artistic patterns and daring geometrics, incorporate a touch of modernity into the timeworn material. “We love leather and the luxury of something that keeps getting better with age,” says Waggoner of the partnership. “Brit is changing the way that people use and experience this textile.” Studio Four’s next debut proves that the art of plaster isn’t lost but rather in a state of renaissance thanks to Celeste Coughlin of Asterisk Designs. This doyenne of Venetian
plaster developed a specialized technique for transcribing waxed plaster onto paper, coining a perfect science to translate this ancient (and tedious) process onto a custom roll of wallpaper. “We have always loved the gorgeous, creamy texture of Venetian plaster walls,” says Waggoner, “and when we met Celeste we knew we were destined for something great to unfold.” With all these exciting collections debuting this season, Studio Four’s Chelsea showroom is the perfect spot to garner inspiration for any and all design endeavors. “Design is a luxury,” says Reynolds. “It should always inspire and never intimidate.”

A HISTORICAL HAVEN IN A SEAPORT CITY, AN ACCLAIMED ATHLETIC CLUB AND A 1930S BEACHSIDE REFUGE ARE ALL GIVEN NEW LIFE BY SOME OF THE BEST NAMES IN DESIGN. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT
An infamous, members-only social club that once entertained the likes of Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor is being boldly reimagined by acclaimed architect Richard Meier. Located in the South Florida town of Surfside, the Surf Club will be a visual dialogue between the old and the new, transforming the original 1930s club into a Four Seasons boutique hotel and residences. Meier’s material palette will be simple: Floor-to-ceiling glass will maximize horizontal views of the Atlantic Ocean, while local surfaces, namely flooring of porous coral stone, will detail the exterior. Inside, handpicked furnishings will be set amidst the clean backdrop of the architect’s signature color—white. thesurfclub.com
CHICAGO ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION CHICAGO Founded in 1890 by families of American sports royalty (think Wrigley and Spalding), the Chicago Athletic Association has been a fixture in the Windy City for more than a century. The famed location, originally designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, has now been revamped into a luxury lifestyle hotel by design duo Roman and Williams. “We were devoted to preserving the character and details of this historic building while creating a new language,” say the designers. The aesthetic maintains the building’s original fireplaces with bas-relief wood carvings, expansive marble staircases and stained glass, yet speaks to classic Americana with vintage artifacts like wooden gym ladders, Victorian-inspired lighting and leather furnishings. chicagoathletichotel.com
THE PALLADIAN HOTEL SEATTLE The Palladian Hotel, established in Seattle in 1910, was named for the Palladian windows that defined the architecture of the time. Today, San Francisco-based designer Nicole Hollis has taken this historically significant building and given it a speakeasy vibe with a sense of humor (pillows printed with Tom Selleck’s portrait, for example). Reclaimed-wood headboards juxtapose crisp, white Frette linens in the guest rooms, while brass accents, velvet upholstery and a tufted-leather check-in characterize the lobby, with the hotel’s original doors standing at the entrance of the gym. Ornamented by custom Ladies & Gentlemen light fixtures, Hollis’ warm yet playful interiors program boasts a quintessential Seattle feel and reflects the pulsating street culture found just outside. palladianhotel.com

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS
“I want my pieces to feel like something you would hand down to the next generation,” explains designer Windsor Smith in reference to her new 40-piece collection for Arteriors. Brimming with furnishings, lighting and home accents in a range of tonal golds, mixed metals and varied marbles, the line flirts between masculine and feminine dichotomies. Case in point: Smith’s Athena sconce (shown here in silver) was inspired by the delicate drop of an earring, while the Atlas sconce (shown in gold)
reveals the same caged form but in a more industrial, geometric outline. “It is through shape and silhouette,” says Smith, “that instant sculpture is evoked.” Laced with neoclassical and GrecoRoman influences, the collection leaves a rich patina in its wake, beckoning centuries past while maintaining modern relevance. “My goal was to reinterpret traditional in a beautiful, lasting way with utilitarian pieces that are meant to be used and not thought of as too precious,” Smith explains. Mission accomplished.

GrAy MALIN TeLLS A TALe Of WhIMSy ThrOuGh SurreAL IMAGery Of ANIMALS rOAMING The PArker PALM SPrINGS. WrITTeN ANd PrOduced By jesse brAtter
Photographer Gray Malin journeys to far and away places, capturing eccentric moments that spark fantasy and wonder, like llamas adorned in balloons amidst Bolivia’s salt flats, or rainbow-hued sheep in Australia. In his new fine art series, Gray Malin at the Parker, he keeps his zest for adventure close to home, shooting at the Parker Palm Springs as exotic animals playfully explore the iconic resort that unites luxury with amusement. Malin put down his camera to discuss the enchanting series, where monkeys are bellhops and giraffes are the guests, temporarily on view at the hotel. With an infectious joie de vivre, he proves the old adage: not all who wander are lost.
How did animals become your muse? I have a deep love for flamingos and penguins and couldn’t stop envisioning them on the property. Working with them and the capuchin monkey, zebra and baby giraffe was so much fun—I wish I could live in this fantasy every day. Any divas on set? We had trainers to direct the crew and myself on how to interact with them to keep them as happy models. Zack the zebra wasn’t much of a fan of the balloons, as they kept popping, but he was a professional and we got the shot. Images of animals in dreamlike settings are one part of your repertoire, but you’re also known for aerial shots of beach scenes. How do you capture the perfect composition? When I’m in the air, people and objects begin to stand out and
form patterns below. Once I’m up there, everything magically comes together visually for me and I’m able to capture the natural art that is being created below in the distance. What’s the most daring stunt you’ve done to get the perfect shot? Standing on a 10-foot inflatable boat in the waters of Antarctica, shooting beach balls up against icebergs the size of a skyscraper that could break apart at any moment. It was the thrill of a lifetime. You’ve said your favorite part of your job is getting to see the world. Can you offer a piece of travel advice to those filled with the same wanderlust? If you’re ever in Bhutan, you must visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, one of the country’s most sacred religious sites. Built in the 8th century on the side of a cliff, it is something of another world.

Your new fine art series focuses on exotic animals in unexpected places. What inspired the collection? Since living in Los Angeles, I’ve always enjoyed the quick escape to the desert, and the Parker Palm Springs has been my longtime favorite hotel there. This was a chance to let my imagination run wild, and apparently it ran right into a menagerie of wild animals enjoying the hotel with me.

WRITTeN AND PRODUceD BY lisa bingham dewart
“It’s fantastic to drift and just let a place wash over you,” designer Tracey Boyd says of her approach to travel. Until recently, her chances to do just that were rare. As the creative director of the coveted fashion label Boyd, she was constantly in motion, creating edgy yet feminine clothing. Her singular vision—one collection featured fleece ball gowns—won her a New Generation Designer of the Year honor at the 2000 Rover British Fashion Awards, along with a devoted international following, but little time for anything else. “When I moved into a more organic way of designing, I decided to go on trips for two or three months,” she says. “I wanted to go deeper.” This change of focus yielded Aboydbazaar, a collection of clothing and accessories influenced by her biggest passions: life, travel, art and fashion.
Since then, Boyd has been busy soaking up the world’s sights and sounds, be it the modern shapes of Singapore’s skyline or the traditional beading practices in Penang. India remains a favorite destination and a constant source of inspiration. “It’s such a place of contrast,” says Boyd. “When I’m there, I have too many ideas. I have to file them away and then come home to make sense of them.” With the luxury of time, the designer can now absorb the lessons from her travels and incorporate them into her work, such as in her latest venture, Boyd, a line of furniture inspired by her journeys and currently available through Anthropologie. “I’m obsessed with finding out how things are done but looking at them in a contemporary way,” she says. “Then, I put my own spin on them.”
Next on Boyd’s itinerary? She’s heading to the U.S., where she’ll launch Boyd with Resource Decor at High Point Market in October. Imbued with color and texture, the line mixes modern and traditional shapes in materials ranging from lacquer and metal to concrete and shells. Before that, however, she’ll pack a bag with a sketch pad, a few of her Aboydbazaar shirts, a collection of black and white beads and a beloved Dries Van Noten scarf and head to Puglia, in Southern Italy, to a convent that was reinvented as a hotel. “It’s filled with tribal art, textiles and miles of books on art, sculpture and furniture. It’s like having a holiday in the most fabulous library with incredible food and beautiful gardens,” says Boyd. “It’s a mixture of work and play and sums up my ideal way to travel.”

WHO: The flower mavens of Brooklyn floral shop Saipua, owned by the petite design powerhouse Sarah Ryhanen—adored purveyor of lush blooms and handmade soaps cultivated at her Albany farm. WHAT: Yes, we love the chiaroscuro perfection of her bouquet shots, but no one can resist Ryhanen’s tender, behind-the-scenes peeks into her family’s farm life, complete with floppy-eared lambs, snowy fields and growing tiger baby lilies. WHY: Because this serious photographer takes just as much care with her painterly snapshots as she does with her signature floral designs. IN HER WORDS: “I’m always looking for beautiful, unique stems to share with flower enthusiasts on Instagram. I gravitate toward a P5 filter to make yellows golden and midtones a moody blue for a nice Van Gogh effect.” 126 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

How do you add to the Brooklyn skyline without compromising the area’s neighborhood feel? Brooklyn-based themselves, TEN Arquitectos tackled this dilemma for the firm’s upcoming BAM South Building in the Cultural District. “We believe strongly that any gesture you make in an urban context has a responsibility toward the city,” says principal architect Enrique Norten. The result: a slim, angular design that preserves views of the historic One Hanson Place clock tower while yielding most of the property to a terraced public plaza modeled after the social atmosphere of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s grand staircase entrance. The first floors are also earmarked for cultural attractions like 651 Arts and Brooklyn Academy of Music cinemas, so the building will feature multiple entries, inviting a flow of locals through this soon-to-be cultural staple. ten-arquitectos.com

“I love Kate Reynolds and Stacy Waggoner’s showroom, Studio Four NYC. I rely on their beautifully curated collections of fabrics, accessories and rugs when I need something special for one of my projects. Be sure to ask for David Estes when you go!”
“Elizabeth Eakins makes fabulous handmade rugs from her light-filled studio in Norwalk. She has an artist’s eye for color and composition and uses only environmentally friendly materials, which is so important to our clients who want a toxicfree home.”
“I often call Kenneth Caruso from Alternative Interiors my magician. He can take any image I conjure up and make it better than I ever envisioned—whether that means applying Venetian plaster to an old trunk or a high-gloss tomato red lacquer to a bedside table.”
“We’re the only gallery in New York showcasing 20th-century Indian art in this way, so we’re bringing something very important to the city’s art scene. Many visitors at our exhibits are seeing modern Indian art for the first time, so there’s definitely a ‘wow’ factor at play here. Currently, we’re exhibiting close to 100 iconic artworks by India’s leading modernists, such as F.N. Souza, S.H. Raza and M.F. Husain. We’re showing artwork that some collectors may not yet be very familiar with, so we try to inform as well as inspire. All our exhibitions feature scholarship by leading art scholars and rare archival material from the gallery’s collection.” -NEIL BLUMSTEIN, DELHIARTGALLERY.COM
THE MAKER For Pamela Sunday, life is in the details—so much so that the Jersey City-based artist has crafted her ceramics practice around creative interpretations of microscopic biological forms. Her resulting sculptures’ spikes, bumps and uneven surfaces, therefore, are wonderfully interesting and complex. “I have been challenging myself to make forms that are asymmetrical and that develop in ways that parallel biological metabolism,” says Sunday of her latest work. We spoke further with the artist about her love affair with handmade glazes and all things molecular. pamelasunday.com
What led you to become an artist? I came to art later in life. After working on Wall Street, I started taking various classes with former coworkers in glassblowing and ceramics, and I was immediately drawn to clay and its limitless possibilities. Describe your aesthetic vision. For years I’ve taken microscopic forms as inspiration. Each sculpture is then hand-built, starting from the basis of a simple sphere and then morphing into models that resemble magnified particles or clusters of cells. Share your process. I start by sketching, then trying out the idea in clay, attaching and refining components. Once dry, the piece is bisque-fired and glazed. I’m captivated with glaze chemistry and make most of my own right here in my studio. Favorite gallery in Jersey City? Mana Contemporary near Journal Square is a fascinating facility that has galleries, artist studios, a dance company and an art academy. They also house some of Richard Meier’s architectural models.

10 a.m. After breakfast, check out the Harry and Maggie Wetzel Native Plant Garden. It’s a tiny hideaway reclaimed from an old parking lot with more than 80 species of native plants each grouped by habitat. 10:30 a.m. Hit the Healdsburg Farmers’ Market. Most of the produce is grown within 10 miles of the market, so it’s a great place to get the freshest Dry Creek peaches. I also always get my veggie starters here. 11:30 a.m. Take an art walk along Grove Street on the Foss Creek Pathway on your way to the main square in Healdsburg. It’s sponsored by the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation, and it’s beyond lovely.
12 p.m. Next, visit the Plaza. It’s our main square, and it has some wonderful art and design destinations, including my favorite: Saint Dizier Home. The store features local, handmade metal furniture—from tables of all shapes and sizes to beds, stools and shelving. Artist Aletha Soulé also displays her amazing wine country-inspired ceramics here. 1 p.m. Stop for lunch at Barndiva. It’s one of my favorite spots in Healdsburg and highlights the best ingredients from Sonoma and Mendocino counties. The chef, Ryan Fancher, has worked with Thomas Keller at The French Laundry in Yountville and Per Se in New York. All of the food is superb; plus, my fabric—Prima Alpaca—is used on an upholstered wall here, which provides a showcase for their rotating selection of artwork. 2 p.m. A visit to wine country would not be complete without a wine tasting. I love Copain Wines, which has a gorgeous view and interesting nontraditional wine varieties, and J Vineyards & Winery does great wine and food pairings. 4 p.m. Head to the Farmhouse Inn for a spa treatment. The spa is located in the inn’s former carriage house and incorporates ingredients from the surrounding land, such as Spring Forest honey, heirloom cider apples and fresh herbs, into their services. 7 p.m. Leave your dinner plans in the hands of Michelin-starred chef Steve Litke. His menu is inspired by the diversity of California cuisine, featuring Mexican and Italian influences.

If there is anything to take away from an exploration into Baldwin Hardware’s products, it is the following: Quality reigns supreme—always has and always will; continuity of design accents (i.e., hardware) is important; and hardware should be a direct reflection of the homeowner’s aesthetic and lifestyle. A legendary name in cabinet and door hardware, accessories and locks, Baldwin is a staple in the industry, with a strong track record in creating enduring products. “From our American roots to other parts of the world, we like to look at what is classic and on trend and make sure our hardware reflects the desires and aesthetics of the homeowner and design community,” says Baldwin brand manager PJ Rosch.

On Trend Synergy: While contemporary is a predominant design style, fusing looks is gaining popularity, such as modern interior designs in retro styles; black and white in geometric patterns; and organic materials in a space with pops of color. Variant hues: All shades of red are in, as are many shades of green. A resurgence of yellow brass is also noteworthy. A new kind of door: Pocket doors are huge on the list, from small spaces in New York to more industrial or rustic spaces. The best of brass: Traditional polished brass works well for the classicists, whereas a more transitional setting might call for a satin brass. A note on brass: Like everything in fashion, the popularity of brass ebbs and flows; however, it is less a trend and more a classic mainstay.
Historic and modern architecture. There is so much out there to love.

What kitchen and bath trends should We anticipate for 2015? In terms of colors, gray will continue its reign in popularity, but other classic neutrals will join the palette for the year. Clean and contemporary lines will also dominate the kitchen and bath space.
The use of stone and tile in the home dates to antiquity and has survived millennia for a good reason: unwavering functionality. The use and look of these materials has gradually evolved, but did not undergo a noteworthy transformation until the 21st century. Companies like Cosentino, the global parent company of leading market brands for kitchen and bathroom quartz surfaces, have been prime movers in new applications and aesthetics of stone. “Cosentino’s research and development program has long been valued in architecture and design communities because of what its innovative manufacturing processes make possible,” says Lorenzo Marquez, Cosentino’s vice president of marketing. “Through a proprietary technique called Particle Sintering Technology, Cosentino has created an accelerated version of the process rocks and stones undergo over thousands of years in nature. The result: a stable material suited for an array of installations in the kitchen and bath, as well as outdoor kitchens and living spaces.” Versatility, a distinguishing characteristic of Cosentino-derived products, gives way to design cohesion and is the trait that will come to define this era’s stone and tile.
hoW have things changed in your industry in the past five years? Most notable is the demand for largeformat kitchen islands that serve as the home’s central hub, rather than the traditional kitchen table. In the bathroom, stand-alone showers have gained traction in place of the conventional shower and tub enclosures.
advice for someone beginning a project involving stone or tile: When it comes to material selection, durability and ease of care are just as important as how it complements the aesthetic of the space. This is often an installation job best left to professionals.
every Well-designed bathroom should have…
A striking focal point or stunning vignette.
every Well-designed kitchen should have… A central gathering space—be it a kitchen island, peninsula or dining table—that serves multiple functions for the entire family.
As homeowners place greater emphasis on functionality and ease of use to meet their family’s demands, durability for long-term use is key.

Make sure your hardware and accessories match your design aesthetic and never sacrifice on quality or design—it will show.
The kitchen, once an exclusively utilitarian space, has evolved into an aesthetic, central core of the home. Beyond open floor plans and heightened designs, kitchens are now becoming technologically rich, connecting end users to the infinite possibilities of the web. dacor, a leading designer and manufacturer of kitchen appliances, has been a driving force in the progression of the smart kitchen. The family-owned, california-based company is behind such kitchen innovations as the discovery iQ dual-Fuel Range, offering users cooking tutorials, recipes and text message notifications when food is ready; the discovery iQ Wall oven, featuring a built-in Android™ tablet and Bluetooth® technology and voice command; and the discovery Winestation, a four-bottle dispenser that preserves wine up to 60 days. dacor’s cEo charles Huebner notes the importance of connectivity in the kitchen but advises against technology for “technology’s sake.” “consumers will soon be bombarded with all things connected and should be aware of what they are buying for their home and why,” he asserts. “With dacor’s appliances, technology simplifies the cooking process and makes the culinary experience accessible to everyone, empowering the individual.”

The company, drawing from more than 100 years of innovation, trial and achievement, is a driving force behind the concealed kitchen—a design movement that gives way to gallery-like spaces in the kitchen, and the cabinetry is art. Using earthborn, organic materials such as raw wood and concrete, Eggersmann’s ultra sleek and clean-lined cabinetry reimagines modernity in a warm and inviting fashion. “We start with the most intrinsically raw materials available, including woods, metals and glass,” shares Eggersmann UsA cEo Michael soltoff. “With these materials used in various textures, colors and sheens, we constantly push the limits of the basic core components.” The Eggersmann design foundation is built on key Bauhaus architectural characteristics—flat, smooth surfaces, cubic shapes, neutral colors and open floor plans (fundamentally pure and resounding in utility)—and is distinguished by technological feats in cabinetry composition and ergonomics, such as its electric mechanisms, custom storage, handle integration and exotic veneers. “The wide availability of parts, components, hardware and materials across the world has caused a demand and push for incredible leaps and bounds in innovation of product,” soltoff says. “As electronic technology becomes more compact and lightweight, we see an increase in automation in our products, and it has become more of an integrated component of lifestyle, rather than just a cabinet or case good.”
Ergonomics play a large role in the design of a high-end kitchen, and it is highly suggested that most cabinetry pull out or come toward you instead of looking out of reach.

The trend of people spending more money on bathroom and kitchen remodeling— top requirements of new home buyers—continues to increase because these two rooms have become more important for boosting resale values.
Like jewelry, hardware is a powerful accent that can elevate, contemporize or even transform aesthetic quality. Equally remarkable is the utility of kitchen and bathroom fixtures and decorative hardware—an element of residential design that was once left to the discretion of professionals. Today, plumbing fixtures, accessories and hardware selection are as much a priority of the homeowner as cabinetry, a by-product of the increase in kitchen and bathroom remodels and the ubiquity of design ideas and information. In general, people are spending more on fixtures and hardware and placing greater value on the quality, craftsmanship and technological capabilities of these new products. california hardware manufacturer newport Brass, a premium brand of solid brass faucets and fixtures, is a noteworthy name in the industry and has adorned many of today’s residences with its contemporary, elegant and cutting-edge products. “We are dedicated to being at the forefront of the industry by incorporating technology, innovation and craftsmanship—all with a focus on creating products that bring value to our clients’ lifestyles, wellness and comforts,” shares david Emmons, director of marketing for Newport Brass. “We were one of the first manufacturers to implement Pvd (physical vapor deposition) finishing technology, a highly specialized process mastered by few manufacturers in the industry. Newport Brass now offers 29 finish options and multiple styles that can fit in any luxury bathroom or kitchen décor.”

what constItutes a welldesIgned kItchen and Bath?
consider two main factors when making a decision: 1. Is the style of the faucets or fixtures going to complement the room and offer a complete line of matching components? 2. Are the fixtures and components going to provide the functionality and performance the client is requiring, offering a personalized bathroom or kitchen design?
Quality and durability should never be overlooked, and layout and product selection with proper placement should serve a purpose. A well-designed space feels natural, looks in place and offers uncompromising enjoyment.

poggenpohl’s experts weIgh In
Poggenpohl began life in 1892 in a small german showroom. From the beginning, the ambition was to improve the kitchen. good fortune came to founder Friedemir Poggenpohl in finding craftspeople and designers to execute and expound upon his sleek, utilitarian aesthetic. Today, Poggenpohl is an industry innovator, from sustainable building methodology to fresh concepts in materials and finishes to ergonomic cabinetry. What Poggenpohl created more than a century ago is the kitchen of today: devoid of the superfluous, aesthetically modern and unabashedly centered on functionality. To further educate about the very latest in kitchen design, Poggenpohl luminaries I-ching Ueng, san Francisco showroom manager and designer, and Luiza Bajkowska, New York city Poggenpohl designer, shared a few of the most alluring new looks in the kitchen. “White gloss finishes seem to be dominating; clients want clean lines and the least amount of busyness—the opposite of the outside world, where they are being overloaded with information and clutter,” Bajkowska says. In addition to high-gloss and matte finishes, as well as handless design (a technology that speaks to the clean-lined Poggenpohl aesthetic), Ueng notes a general paradigm shift in the kitchen. “More and more people in the United states are following what has been true in Europe for many years, which is that kitchens are viewed as products, not just building materials,” she says. Ueng makes an interesting point, which might be taken a touch further: kitchens are viewed as art, not just products.
Durability is a must—melamine took over the lacquers.
The big picture: Modern style with clean design Sources of inspiration: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, sustainability, advancing technology Well-designed kitchen: Intuitive workflow, no confusion Well-designed cabinetry: Functional! On the radar: Retro design woven into pure and modern spaces Continuity vs. eclecticism: cohesion. Either monochromatic or a thoughtful combination of colors and materials that integrate with the rest of the décor of the house Uniquely Poggenpohl: german precision and innovation with flexibility that aspires to individual needs 2

walker Zanger Widely regarded as one of the world’s most esteemed purveyors of luxury stone and tile, Walker Zanger was founded more than 60 years ago with the vision to combine the authenticity of meticulously hand-selected marble and stone with the efficiency of new technologies. The company is still guided by its original vision, curating stones from all corners of the globe to ensure the best quality while implementing technology that has yet to be seen elsewhere in the industry. “We take advantage of new technologies, like waterjet or laser etching, to create new types of products,” says vice President of design and Marketing Jared Becker.
Every well-designed kitchen should have a good working axis between the stove, refrigerator and sink— and beautiful stone or tile. WHAT’s trendIng
decoration: consumers are looking for creative patterns and colorways for floors and walls. Moroccan and Southern Italian motifs offer amazing geometric and figurative patterns that can be used in many ways, even in modern interiors. Organic shapes in stone are trending, as are gray and blue in both ceramic and stone. Porcelain tile technology that mimics other materials, like wood, stone or concrete, is a major trend being embraced for residential and commercial work.

The temperature just spiked courtesy summer’s latest interior accents and fashion accessories that appear to be heavily influenced by four distinct cities. Here, the Southwestern feel of Santa Fe creates an instant heat wave by way of Ralph Lauren’s printed throw alongside Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams’ reinvigorated Kazan chair. In a city known for its great respect of art and culture, Santa Fe continues to inspire; case in point is the renowned Santa Fe Indian Market (detail shown below) that draws an array of folk artists and enthusiasts from around the globe. Even one of fashion’s elite, Veronica Etro, turned to the desert for her latest RTW line, as traditional Navaho prints, daring fringed heels and bohemian embellishments strutted down the runway. These free-spirited pieces are no mirage, but rather the perfect tangibles for imbuing a little adobe-chic into any home.

The Côte d’Azur has lured individuals of the art and design worlds for centuries, and it would appear that its most recent persuasions over fashion and interiors have us once again longing for a deep breath of that fresh coastline air. Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg looked to the French Riviera for inspiration when creating her painterly Spring/Summer 2015 RTW collection, giving nods to Matisse and Picasso, frequenters of this seaside escape, through fun floral patterns displayed on wispy silks, while San Francisco interior designer Antonio Martins evoked a touch of coastal style when fashioning this impressive haphazard-tiled wall, exuding ancient references brought into modern day with a striking sideboard reminiscent of a coral reef. At this rate, we’re ready to grab our passports and say bonjour to laidback living at its best.

Always the trailblazer—whether it be in fashion, food or design—Milan has long been setting the tone for the rest of the world. And, when it comes to style and décor, it’s not just about the art of the mix, but more importantly, the element of surprise. Here, designer Barry Dixon’s seemingly turn-of-the-century Synapse pendant complements both the sleek, modern lines of B&B Italia’s Metropolitan ottoman and the delicate form of Nina Tolstrup's Tall chair. Milan is by nature an effortlessly sartorial city, yet it’s not a reputation easily received without great thought and consideration. British fashion duo Peter Pilotto exercises the city’s fearlessness in their latest runway collection, where silhouette and pattern are brazenly exhibited through unorthodox materials like Perspex.

Many mistake the fact that simplistic design requires less effort, but quite to the contrary; it’s the simple silhouettes and uncomplicated structures that change the way design is perceived and experienced. It is this philosophy that dominates the persona of our next influential city: Copenhagen. Blonde wood, open shapes and brushed-gold finishes are constant qualities synonymous with Denmark’s capital. Barber & Osgerby illustrate the art of this finesse in the Hula stool, which by appearances is seemingly straightforward, but upon further investigation, offers itself as either fixed seating or a rocking stool. But perhaps the father of modern Danish design, Finn Juhl, whose colorful sideboard is shown, sums up quintessential Copenhagen style best of all with his clean-lined furnishings. “One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects,” he says, “but one can spoil quite a lot of happiness with bad ones.”

Feel: The Air sofa is a modern shape that will feel more classic as time passes. It seems like a piece that would inspire our personal aesthetic to grow and change. Color: The strength of the color is that it’s a bold shade that acts as a neutral. The mossy green recalls nature and feels fresh. Statement: This silhouette demands attention and would inform the design of the rest of the room. It sets a tone of sophistication and class—you can’t go wrong with those brass legs! Sense: This piece would smell of old maps, leather and cigars, yet with a hint of perfume.
market / spotlight
Collaboration: Partnerships like this bring together old and new creative talents, often resulting in beautiful and unexpected design. Collection: The pieces feel like a blend of both antiquity and modern taste. Each pattern is rich and intricate, but together they remain cohesive. Palette: Gray is the new white. The soft palette whispers of the beauty found in the handmade and nuanced details that feel very aligned with Fortuny’s heritage. Story: This collection reminds me of ancient vessels found at archeological digs in Egypt and then revived with an artisanal sensibility that fits into today’s world.

Brilliance: The resin top of this bench is quite kaleidoscopic. For me, it’s all about color and pattern: A vibrant mix of shapes and materials can make something quite classic in style feel fresh and modern. fun: Playfulness is very important. I like design with a good heart and a strong personality. Mood: This bench attracts attention. It feels Jurassic—the top looks as if it’s made from ancient, vibrant fossils. It would make for a great psychedelic addition to an entryway.

Designer: I am taken with how playful and fearless Christopherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an artist with a sense of humor. His collection, for me, recalls the Space Age. Contrast: The contrast of black and white is striking. These tables are modern art sculptures and conversation starters. Color can complicate the design process and take away from the bold minimalism of a silhouette. These tables, especially the painted piece, still feel simple though the pattern is random and wild. Vision: The tables are seemingly optical illusions: If you look at them long enough, you might see something unexpected.

artistry: Robert Long’s pieces redefine the traditional sconce. His lighting style blurs the line between art and functional design. Materiality: The handblown glass adds rusticity to the sophisticated design, while the polished brass balances the fixture with modern simplicity. craftsmanship: The handmade process breathes life into a product and into our homes. I believe the importance of the maker movement is in keeping the tradition of skilled labor alive; it is design and skill passed down from one generation to the next. final thought: “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’’—William Morris

happy hues and bold palettes turn the home’s hardest-working spaces into functional showpieces that think outside the box. written by brielle m. ferreira it’s easy to see why white kitchens and bathrooms are so popular in the modern home—like a signature dish perfected over many potlucks and dinner parties, they are ideal for the chef who wants to play it safe. they’re elegant and classic and show no signs of going out of style. for those seeking a little more adventure in their interiors, though, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the allure of color, of bold, lookat-me spaces that demand the spotlight. thankfully, today’s bold kitchens and baths banish all memories of the avocado refrigerators and pale pink tiles of yesteryear; instead, their vibrant palettes borrow their power from high fashion and graphic style for spaces that are decidedly à la mode.

interior designer andrew howard cooks up a dreamy kitchen scene in varying shades of blue for this familyfriendly florida kitchen. andrewjhoward.com How did you decide on the serene blue palette? it was a happy accident. we were looking for countertops, and we weren’t quite sure what we wanted to do, but when we found this interesting blue marble, everything clicked. the whole kitchen was then born from there.
favorite thing about a colorful kitchen? it has a special “wow” factor you don’t get from a more traditional space. the kitchen is where your friends and family spend about 90 percent of their time when they’re with you; it’s fun to give them something they’ve never seen.
What would you say to those afraid of using color in a kitchen? don’t be! even if you’re a little hesitant to paint all of your cabinets a certain shade, you can bring in color in small ways for a big impact. a hint of hue on your backsplash or barstools can go a long way.

LEAFY GREENS Legendary Palm Beach ceramicist Dodie Thayer’s signature lettuce ware has been highly coveted by a rather formidable crowd—think Brooke Astor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis—since she threw the first plate back in the 1960s. However, with the supply of the iconic green (Duncan Irish Green to be exact) tableware in serious decline, it was only a matter of time before these vintage beauties went extinct; that is before Tory Burch stepped in, with the fashion heavy hitter recently teaming up with Thayer to put the preppy staples back into production and back on kitchen shelves for good. toryburch.com
MAKE A SPLASH
Glass mosaic tiles from Ann Sacks in navy, turquoise, gray and white are laid together in thick chevron stripes that transform the backsplash of this crisp kitchen into a work of art. The space, by San Francisco-based designer Ali Davin, relies on this colorful statement piece to bring life to an otherwise simple, Shaker-style kitchen. “When you have a bold graphic moment like the backsplash, you can’t give it a lot of other competition,” says Davin. “It’s important to keep the built-in lines clean and ornamentation and hardware to a minimum.” jutehome.com

WIth sIgnature FLaIr, DesIgner LILLy Bunn reImagInes a FIFth avenue apartment usIng vIntage pIeCes anD pLayFuL prInts.
how did you come to create such a thoughtfully collected, fresh space? the home is located in a young part of town, so I wanted to infuse the interiors with the same fun vibe you would find outside. the client is super-chic and has a great fashion sense about her, so I wanted to create a space to reflect her personality. you should aspire to create a foyer that makes you want to see what’s going on in the rest of the apartment and I believe you definitely get that sense here.
What qualities do you most admire in this design? I think about how a room is going to be used and then decorate accordingly. this is a pass-through room, so there was a great opportunity to do something fun. I try to make every space beautiful and practical. With that being said, it’s important to incorporate pieces to conceal and store valuables so the entrance doesn’t become a dumping place. For this particular project, I think the dresser drawers help to hide most of the overflow. Interior Design / Lilly Bunn / Lilly Bunn, Inc. / lillybunn.com. Chair Leather / Kravet / kravet.com.

What inspired the color palette? I love red and anything that shines, and the vintage chair was the perfect place to incorporate my favorite hue. I tend to gravitate toward a relaxed palette with bursts of color, that way the backdrop is flexible enough to change out the accessories. the wallcovering, while quite graphic, provides this relaxed palette. I was also able to incorporate an eclectic mix of vintage furnishings along with the client’s own pieces, such as the adorable retro prints.

Walk me through your vision when dreaming up this space. It was a true meeting of like-minded design between the clients and myself. One of the clients is an artist and has traveled and lived globally, most recently in London. I myself am somewhat of an Anglophile, with an appreciation for early 20th-century British design, particularly the Arts and Crafts movement of that period. It was only natural that the design of this house has elements that bring artistic craftsmanship and a high design aesthetic together.
What areas speak most to the English Arts and Crafts movement? A property’s context is always key and here it was providence that the house next door was built in the early 20th century also in the Arts and Crafts style. The two properties are close together, so it was logical that the new house should refer to its elegant neighbor. Both are clad in native varied stone, use heavy timber and feature a series of French doors, which we adorned with copper screens to help resist corrosion and damage.
What did the lower stone wall feature bring to the project? The sunken wall and trough form what the British call a ha-ha wall. The front lawn gradually forms a trough at the base of the pool wall, which is 4 feet high, the required height for walls around a pool. Grasses and hydrangea grow in the area in front so that the trough and the height of the pool are pleasantly masked. The best achievement of the ha-ha wall is the unrestricted views from the pool terrace to the water.

Tell me more about your thoughts behind the soft color scheme. There’s nothing more calming and soothing than being in a room with pale blues and warm grays. Facing a backdrop of lush green foliage, I wanted to have your eye drawn to the outdoors. It’s a great trick to forgo draperies and instead frame the view with a subtle gray hue on the window trim. We continued the blue on the picture rail by accident, but it worked out perfectly. Having had the picture rail cut off would have made the room a lot smaller in height. Once the paint colors were perfect, how did the design unfold from there? Perfectly mimicking the colors and textures of the space, the oversize abstract painting offers movement, making everything feel more modern. Also, in reference to movement, it was important to have the rooms flow freely from one to the next. This area is part of a larger space that also houses the living room. By adding this small dining area, it offers the client a more intimate place for casual dinner parties. Should a dining room be used everyday or only for special occasions? I love dining rooms as a space to live and be comfortable in everyday. What better way to wrap up your week than to invite several of your closest friends over to enjoy an impromptu meal together? It doesn’t have to be fancy—boil some pasta, grab some flowers from the market and voila! Interior Design / Antonino Buzzetta / Antonino Buzzetta Design / antoninobuzzetta.com.

this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s must-haves and design essentials for heating things up al fresco. Written BY brielle m. ferreira
the great outdoors thanks to the many innovations in technology and digital conveniences, our lives have become a study in seamless living, with phones and other handheld devices providing an effortless transition between work and downtime, study and recess. this trend, too, has found its way into the design of our homes, where outdoor spaces have become just as comfortable and wonderfully complex as interior living and dining rooms. from whimsical seating options and creative landscape architecture to all-weather fabrics that are as beautiful as they are durable, today, more than ever, there are no boundaries or restrictions on making the most of your time outdoors.

nothing says summer like a sweet cocoon made to play host to the perfect midday nap. designed by daniel pouzet and fred frety, dedon’s nestrest is a cozy hideout, borrowing inspiration for its elegant, simple lines from the construction of birds’ nests in nature. dedon.de
for new York-based landscape architect edmund hollander, two things are more important than all else when designing a successful outdoor living space: comfort and fun. so, he often turns to pergolas to yield a pretty spot that pushes people outside. “pergolas are wonderful because they’re so versatile,” he says. “they provide shade for those who want cover but allow light in through their slats for sun worshippers. depending on where you sit, you can have a completely different experience. plus, draping them in wisteria, climbing roses or bougainvillea can create a wonderful sense of place.” hollanderdesign.com

teak is a dependable outdoor staple, but sometimes it can be interesting to bend the rules a little. literally. the tres chic chaise lounge from tommy Bahama, for example, uses the material’s best properties—it’s resilient, weathers beautifully and is water-resistant— and introduces an unexpected, sinuous silhouette for a sleek, modern style that’s built to last. lexington.com
While his gardens grace the properties of some of the most beautiful homes in the chicago area, landscape architect p. clifford miller tries not to get too carried away by their breathtaking structure and symmetry; instead, he focuses on practicing sensitivity to the needs of the site. here, miller shares his thoughts on creating statement-making gardens. What are some of your favorite plants and blooms to work with in your designs? i love crabapples, as they are quintessentially midwest and a wonderful way to shake off the cold. fothergilla “Blue shadow” is another personal favorite, as its glaucous blue leaves can brighten a semi-shady spot all summer long. Share some exciting trends in landscape architecture and outdoor living. right now, we’re seeing a lot of outdoor kitchens, fire pits and water features. none are new, necessarily, but the demand keeps rising. also, low-maintenance plantings, indigenous ﬂora and organic gardening are huge now. best way to integrate water features and pools into verdant surroundings? in a formal garden, lining up the water feature on a critical axial line or controlling a hierarchy of sights and sounds with its location may prove optimal. using strong geometry in the design of the feature will help, as well. landscapeartistry.net
life’s not all fun and games—that’s what outdoor spaces are for. so, go ahead and fan your competitive ﬂame by introducing venues for both sports and recreation. this handsome tennis court by celebrated new York interdisciplinary firm sawyer | Berson, for example, proves that you can have it all: style in spades and a killer backhand. sawyerberson.com

miranda Jones, one half of the brother/sister duo behind san francisco’s galanter & Jones, shares the inspiration and motivation behind the young company’s much-coveted, genius line of heated outdoor furniture. Where did the idea to create your all-weather pieces come from? my brother and business partner, aaron Jones, dreamed it up when he was doing a design/build project in a chilly backyard. our pieces give you the toasty feeling of being in a hot tub but without having to get wet.
How do you create your shapely silhouettes? We use the human form as our inspiration, with comfort being key. When your body anticipates that something will be comfortable, the piece becomes naturally inviting.
What are some of your favorite materials to work with? We’re very intrigued by the cast-able medium. it is amazing and versatile and allows us to explore more ergonomic and interesting forms.
form or function? function always comes first, but good function should also dictate good form. Beauty and simplicity are equal attributes of both. galanterandjones.com

Because modern design is all about blurring the lines between indoors and out, selecting the appropriate color palette to tie the two separate areas together is an absolute necessity. on this welcoming, covered los angeles patio, designer Jamie Bush brought the yellows and oranges from the home’s family room poolside for a cohesive look. “i think the perfect outdoor space needs to be as appointed and comfortable as an interior living room, so you never feel like it’s second best,” says Bush. “for this space, we used items like a chunky area rug, vintage pottery and an african side table to make the outdoor lounge area feel like an extension of the house.” jamiebush.com

ESSENTIALS Outdoor furnishings guru John Danzer, of New York-based Munder Skiles, looks to the history of the genre to craft his timeless, well-built offerings. Here, he shares his tips for effortless outdoor living. Take stock: Think about how you use your home, not only when you’re there with your immediate family but when you’re entertaining extended family and friends, too. Simplify: Don’t overcomplicate your life. My job is complex, but my furniture is not. Look for well-designed furniture that
fits the shape of your body and is naturally comfortable. Let nature shine: I can’t stand furniture being too prominent in a garden. Everything you bring into your outdoor space should be able to recede so you can enjoy the real reason you’re out there: to be closer to nature. munder-skiles.com

Container gardens continue to increase in popularity, as water becomes more of a valuable commodity, especially in droughtprone areas like Southern California. Just because they’re practical, however, doesn’t also mean they can’t be fun. Los Angelesbased designer Kathleen Ferguson suggests using pots in unexpected shapes, colors and textures to add interest to your outdoor space. “Succulents and cacti are my favorite plantings for container gardens,” she says, “but I love fitting them with herbs and other edibles, too. They allow you to truly enjoy your garden year-round.” kathleenferguson.com
A well-done hardscape can unify all the elements in a garden, which makes it an integral part of the outdoor experience; however, it can be hard to foster a dreamy, romantic aesthetic from large expanses of paver or limestone. Integrating some lush groundcover, like thyme or dichondra, between the stones, as the Lambert Landscape Company did for this pretty Dallas home, can completely transform the space. lamberts.net

It’s early in the morning in East Hampton, and the scene reads like the opening of a poem: birds chirping, sun shining, the scent of freshly mowed grass is in the air. Charlotte Moss, stepping off her back terrace with a cup of coffee in hand, beelines it to her favorite spot in her nearly 3-acre garden—the fountain. “That’s where you can find me most often,” says Moss. “It’s in a large area and I like to sit there and take in the quiet. It can be quite magical.” For her latest tome, Garden Inspirations, focusing on the garden seemed like the natural thing to do, Moss says. Taking many of the featured photographs herself, the pages are lined with images of her beloved rose garden; original, hand-drawn plans that evolved throughout the decades and espalier-style walkways inspired by her travels. “The way the French have coaxed trees into doing whatever they want is incredible,” she says. “To me, that’s the architecture of the garden.”

Though now a veritable garden maestro, Moss was charting new territory when she and her husband purchased their estate 27 years ago, as the landscaping required the most work. Trees needed to be planted, flower beds installed and an edible garden, which had to be conveniently located for easy access for snipping herbs, took priority. Moss admits that, “Planning the type of outdoor space I wanted was completely out of my realm of knowledge.” So she enlisted the help of Lisa Stamm and Dale Booher from Homestead Garden Design to guide and shape the space. In the end, she says, they taught her everything she knows about garden design and they have been collaborating ever since. Although Moss realizes that not everyone has a garden, she holds true to the idea that the creation of the book was to inspire people on a number of different levels. The way she looks at it is simple: “When I’m in the Hamptons, what I see out of every window is just as important as the room I am sitting in itself.” For Moss, the garden is the great equalizer.

CHECK OUT WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE HAMPTONS THIS SEASON.
This season, London Jewelers in Southampton will be the exclusive carrier of the effortlessly chic line Tirisi Moda. Based in Holland, the brand features diamond and gemstone rings, and bracelets crafted in fine Italian leathers with gold, diamond and semiprecious gemstone charms. “We wanted to kick off the season with something fresh and playful,” says Camille Hull, who has been buying for London Jewelers for 12 years. “The dyed leather mixed with the gold will be a staple this summer for the Hamptonite who wants that casual lifestyle yet still craves an elegant piece of jewelry.” Each piece is seriously versatile, making it easy to layer and collect over time. 47 Main Street, Southampton; 631.287.4499; londonjewelers.com
The already beloved Bridgehampton Inn & Restaurant has gotten a new neighbor, and even more reasons to visit. Another local darling, Loaves & Fishes Cookshop, has moved next door to the Inn in its yearlong renovation and expansion, which included a two-story addition, a second-floor seating area for guests, six additional rooms and daily lunch offerings from the fine dining restaurant opened last June. As before, you’ll find all of owners Sybille van Kempen and Anna Pump’s favorite items in the shop for entertaining and cooking, kitchen necessities and home accessories, as well as live demonstrations. Though sister location Loaves & Fishes Food Store still remains in Sagaponack, patrons of the restaurant will be treated to top cheese picks from the store to round out the new-every-week menu by Chef de Cuisine Arie Pavlou. 2266 Main Street, Bridgehampton; 631.537.3660; bridgehamptoninn.com
RAISE YOUR GLASS
The rosé shortage of 2014 was a slump in the summer season that left some East Enders in a variable state of bottle-shock. This year, local vineyards have prepared for the inevitable rush to stockpile summer’s signature drink— and Sagaponack’s Wölffer Estate Vineyard has taken note. Last month, the Hamptons’ most popular winery not only released 822 cases (32 percent more than last year) of their high-end white label, Grandioso Rosé, but also debuted an updated label design of the winemakers’ highly coveted varietal. Hamptons native and co-owner of the vineyard Joey Wölffer felt that the old label was not a true representation of the brand today. Now—drawing inspiration from the freespirited and rugged Hamptons of her youth—Wölffer’s new label is a chic moniker that represents the true elegance of the upper crust of Long Island wine coupled with Joey’s natural, Bohemian aesthetic. 139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack; 631.537.5106; wolffer.com

Five things that are always in your beach bag? My iPad, a bottle of water, Hampton Sun SPF 15, my cell phone and a Hermès towel. Favorite beach? Ponquogue Beach in Hampton Bays. Go-to host gift? A peach pie from Briermere Farms. If you don’t love these pies, there’s something wrong with you! Where can we find you at 5 p.m. on Friday? On the Long Island Expressway, sitting in traffic.
Favorite town in the Hamptons? Shelter Island. There is less traffic, less people and it’s very low-key. Preferred beach? Silver Beach on Shelter Island; it’s breezy, wild and isolated. Any beach rituals? I always ride my bike there and I leave my phone behind. Where can we find you at 5 p.m. on Friday? In the kitchen at Marie Eiffel Market preparing for the weekend crowd. When I’m done, I’ll be on the back deck with a glass of wine.
What would you bring to a party? I like to bring a bundle of branches, carefully cut for a vase, from any plant in my garden that at that particular moment says, “Take me.” Describe your beach bag. I’m a surf fisherman so I use a five-gallon spackle bucket, preferably white. Favorite beach ritual? I take my shoes off and throw them into the shoe pile in the parking lot; it’s really quite liberating.
Describe your beach bag. A pink leather tote with gold studs that I picked up in Santorini, Greece. Five things always in that bag? La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sunscreen SPF 50, a meat tenderizer, as it’s the best cure if you get stung by a jellyfish, goggles for swimming in the ocean, a bottle of rosé on ice and bottled water for my two Yorkies. Favorite beach? Montauk, so I can watch all of the surfers. It reminds me of my childhood spent in Hawaii.
Favorite town in the Hamptons? The most special village is East Hampton. It’s home to some families who can trace their lineage back 10 to 12 generations. Describe your beach bag. It’s either a Figue Bohemian Gypset Tuk Tuk tote or my Feed bag that I picked up at Urban Zen in Sag Harbor. Where can we find you at 5 p.m. on Friday? On my boat getting ready to watch the sunset with a glass of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut Champagne in hand.
What’s in your beach bag? I don’t carry a beach bag. I only have a stripped-down wallet with a credit card, a twenty-dollar bill and my business card— because you never know. Where can we find you at 5 p.m. on Friday? With friends on the front porch of The American Hotel in Sag Harbor, and we’ll be toasting the weekend with Casaamigos Añejo on the rocks with plenty of lime. Favorite town? Sag Harbor, we’re rooted here.

You’ve been living and working in the Hamptons full-time for the past decade. Did your love of the East End inspire this collection? Yes, it had a major influence. Outdoor and performance fabrics serve a real need for active lifestyles, and the one greatest thing about being in the Hamptons is the natural beauty of the landscape. I like to spend as much time as I can outdoors so it was an easy direction to follow. Tell us more about the collection? There are five different patterns ranging from wovens to prints. We decided to add a denim textile, as well, as we felt it was timeless and indigo has always been a favorite of mine. Overall, I am extremely influenced by Japanese textiles, the weaving and the dying processes are like no other. I also took some cues from a wallpaper in my line that includes a batik rendition of turtles and a simple hand-blocked-inspired scheme called Sarong Weave; that’s my personal favorite.

What do you love most about that print in particular? The timeless quality of it, especially in the Sea Salt colorway. It feels perfectly worn in from wear. All the fabrics in the collection seem to have that sense, almost this artisanal quality. Handmade has always been close to my heart and something I look toward as a continuum— there is nothing that replaces the craft of making something out of nothing. We tried to get as much of the handmade feeling as possible in the collection so that it ties in with the artistic hand that we are known for. With all of your collaborations, how do you continue to find inspiration to keep your designs fresh? I travel extensively and my inspiration stems from that. Sometimes, in an old painting or antique rug, there is a beauty so great that it is impossible to duplicate. I love that moment when you realize something is really extraordinary.

17 BRANDOLINI LIFE BY MURIEL
Muriel Brandolini’s first pop-up store, Life by Muriel Brandolini, is an international marketplace filled with finds from the designer’s travels, collections from close friends and her own global-inspired line. “I think many people turn to design as a form of escape,” says Brandolini. “When someone comes into the store, I want them to feel a sense of discovery.” To encapsulate her signature multicultural and vibrant aesthetic, Brandolini curated everything in the shop herself. “I thought long and hard about what I am always searching for— especially in the summertime,” she says of the process that eventually led to her designing some of her most coveted pieces. “There is handblown glass and gilded lanterns and I am excited to introduce my first line of metallic bathing suits and sandals handmade in Greece.” Brandolini admits that the little shop of nomadic curiosities was indeed a spontaneous idea but it has since turned into the talk of the town. Open until Labor Day. 42A Jobs Lane, Southampton; 631.259.2530; murielbrandolini.com

THE HAMPTONS’ TOP REAL ESTATE PROS DISH ON WHAT’S HOT FOR THE SEASON.
CODY VICHINSKY & ZACHARY VICHINSKY

Bespoke Real Estate
How has architecture in the Hamptons evolved? We’re seeing more modern architecture off the water. People appreciate how open, contemporary design lends itself to entertaining, as well as the use of larger windows and doors for optimal views. Most over-the-top home you’ve ever sold? 828 Sagg Main Street in Sagaponack, designed by Grade Architecture and Interior Design and built by J. Bialsky, who creates amazing homes over 20 million dollars. The pool was a standout with three-pools-in-one, including a 67-foot lap lane, an octagonal deep end and a shallow area perfect for pool volleyball. What exceptional amenities are you seeing? Everyone wants drama. There was a home on Quimby Lane that had a seven-figure door and window package. One of the doors was an enormous sheet of glass with a push-button that, within seconds, receded into the ceiling to reveal the outdoors. It is bells and whistles like that one that set a property apart.
The home at 950 Ocean Road is surrounded by tall hedges for ultimate privacy.

Where does everyone want to be this season? Sag Harbor is much sought after with many restaurants within a block of each other, and it’s the only village where the marinas meet Main Street. It also has some of the more interesting condo developments. Curb appeal or big-name architect? Definitely curb appeal first. If it’s been done by a well-known architect, all the better. Most over-the-top home you’ve sold? In 2005, I sold a John Kean home that was 18,000 square feet on 12 acres. Not only did it have views of the ocean, but also a full-size indoor basketball court. Major real estate trend? People seem drawn to new construction that’s fully furnished. Real estate in the Hamptons right now is... Hot, hot, hot!

SUSAN BREITENBACH The Corcoran Group
Where does everyone want to be this season? New Yorkers want to be closer to the city so they are flocking to Southampton. Sometimes, they do want more of a rural retreat with horse farms and apple orchards, so they look more in Sagaponack and parts of Bridgehampton. What kind of property is the most hard to come by? Waterfront and close to the ocean are always the number-one sellers but 2-acre-plus homes are getting harder to find lately. People want space, and even though a lot of them have penthouse gardens in the city, it’s not the same as having a big yard. How do the individual villages reflect the homebuyers’ personalities? East Hampton is where you’ll find older money with more formal, gated and hedged estates. Sagaponack is much more country and rural. Bridgehampton is horse farms and apple orchards. Amagansett, on the other hand, is still a little country and more of what the Hamptons used to be like: you can walk to the beach and to town, and it has more of a local flair.
SARAH MINARDI Saunders
What was your biggest sale on the East End? 210 Daniel Lane, Sagaponack, which sold for $11 million. It came on the market and sold within 30 days. Most over-the-top home you’ve sold? An upside-down cedar Shingle in East Hampton’s Northwest Woods with views of the Atlantic and Georgica Pond. I first sold it in 2009 and again in 2014. The second time around the seller had outfitted the new home theater with a half-a-million-dollar speaker system. The house sold without the speakers, but one buyer was adamant that they stay—which killed the deal. My seller was not parting with his AV equipment! Real estate in the Hamptons is… Rewriting history. It’s all about size, value and a need-to-knowright-now mentality. Best value for an oceanfront property? The Montauk oceanfront is hot, as it has the secret of being on the water for less than $10 million. It’s not a secret anymore, though, and the price doubles two miles to the west and stays that way until you exit Southampton.

Where are the new-money mansions? Having something along the ocean is big for new-money Wall Street types. It’s the kind of property that goes for $30-$40 million before they even start to build. Alternatively, sometimes they are spending that amount on a more dated home and then doing millions of dollars in renovations. Where are buyers coming from this season? Besides New York City, I have more buyers than ever coming from California and Connecticut. Biggest sale on the East End? A 1920s traditional brick home in Southampton for $75 million. It is extremely rare to have a brick home on the ocean and only a few were ever built in the Hamptons. It went through many renovations throughout the years but it is still a very special house. How do you think architecture has evolved in the Hamptons? It’s all about the view and finding that perfect balance between indoor and outdoor living. Buyers want open floor plans because, even if they are spending upwards of ten million dollars on a home, they want it to look like they have a much more casual, easy lifestyle.
Curb appeal or big-name architect? Right now, people are buying for architecture, and most of them want that modern look. It’s a real escape for them and it’s about having something different than their home in the city. Where do new buyers want to be? It depends, but I do my best to show them two or three homes in each hamlet. People will tell you they are looking for a traditional Shingle-style home and the next thing you know, they’re in contract for a modern. Biggest sale on the East End? It was Wooldon Manor on Gin Lane, and it sold for $85 million. What are the top three demands buyers are looking for in their homes today? I’ll give you two: location and value. For the location, it really is all about the views. For value, it’s financial versus emotional. More times than not, it’s not always about the investment, but about seeing your family in that space.

LINDA SCOTT Artist
Since 1991, Stargazer, the bright red 50-foot-tall sculpture depicting a deer looking skyward, has presided over a Manorville field, serving as the unofficial gateway to the Hamptons. Years ago, its creator, Southamptonite Linda Scott, traveled with Mexican archaeologist Victor Segovia to the pyramids of the Yucatán and realized, “All those cities represented the celestial relationship; it’s where the Mayans got their information.” Her life pursuing mystical work, particularly writings of influential spiritual teacher G.I. Gurdjieff, spawned an entire series of Stargazers around the world. Scott has also recently partnered with jeweler Eric Messin to turn her revered works into wearable art pieces (shown at right). “Metaphysically speaking, we—nature, you, me, everything—are the connection to the above from below,” she says. “That’s what the Stargazer symbolizes.” lindascott.org
Jack Lenor Larsen may have designed thousands of textiles—sold through Cowtan & Tout—over several decades, but it took aligning himself with other creatives to really find his voice. “I have worked with the greatest architects,” says the 87-yearold Larsen, an East Hampton fixture since 1952. “I was so keen to please them and understand what they wanted that it forced me to do new things.” Among those: introducing ethnographic textiles to America (our current love affair with ikats would be unthinkable without him). He now devotes his time to LongHouse Reserve, where, he says, “I take what I learned in other design practices and try them out in the garden.” Larsen is also working on three books, curating exhibitions and lecturing around the world. “I’ve never been so busy,” he says. longhouse.org A piece from artist Linda Scott’s line of jewelry, available at Pelletreau Silver Shop in Southampton.

27 Multidisciplinary artist Jeff Muhs in his Southampton studio amongst his Slipstream series.
Furniture Maker/Artist Jeff Muhs’ interest in varied art forms is clear from his ultimate party guest list: visual artist Gerhard Richter, modernist furniture designer Edward Wormley, sculptor Robert Morris, architect Zaha Hadid and textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen. He’s practiced several of these forms himself yet doesn’t distinguish between them. “I see my furniture as sculpture,” he explains of his limitededition, handcrafted Emirate collection. “When I began designing this line, I went to Dubai, where the architecture is anything but rectangular mass forms. It’s playful, which you can say about 1950s modern, too.” The birch-plywood-and-laminate pieces are inspired by midcentury antecedents— Jean Arp, George Nelson, Hans Wegner—but reimagined in muscular, high-tech silhouettes. In addition to his furnishings line, he continues to create contemporary, abstract paintings out of his Southampton studio and is currently experimenting with textiles. jeffmuhsstudio.com

After art studies at Pratt, Paul Vogel wanted to see the world. “From my travels in third world countries,” he recalls, “I was feeling a need to do something with my hands.” He satiated that hunger by apprenticing at bookbinderies in England and found his calling. Though the craft is now a dying breed, Vogel keeps the art form alive out of his East Hampton home. Using buttery leathers, cotton rag paper and any bespoke details commissioned by his clients—which have included such high-profile names as Ralph Lauren and Charlotte Moss—Vogel creates books completely by hand using 300-year-old techniques. “Bookbinding always goes through waves of popularity,” he notes. “When people feel a tradition is going to be lost, there’s suddenly interest again. Books say more about the giver than a Kindle does.” vogelbindery.com
Paul Vogel’s creations vary greatly, from traditional volumes to the edgy and unexpected, like this barbed-wire-encased journal shown here. LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN / 255

OPEN-DOOR POLICY DESIGNER MARIECHRISTINE MCNALLy PLAyS uP A RENOwNED HAMPTONS ARCHITECT’S AESTHETIC IN THIS quINTESSENTIAL AMAGANSETT BEACH COTTAGE THAT IS BOTH CASuAL AND CHIC. 258 / luxe interiors + design
This home has quite the history. Architect Alfred A. Scheffer’s main patron, Ella Barbour, commissioned this cottage in the 1940s. It truly exemplifies Scheffer’s architectural style from that time period and area of the Hamptons. The architecture is clean and simple with small, wellproportioned rooms and beautiful materials such as knotty pine plank floors and exposed brick. The entire first floor features exposed beams revealing the floorboards of the second floor. The idea for my design was to highlight these simple details and not to overpower them.
How exactly did you call out these subtle details in your design? The home is located in such a special area—think swimsuit-clad parents toting their sandy kids around in red Radio Flyer wagons—and I sought to imbue the house with that same spirit. I wanted the home to be beach-chic while still casual and low-maintenance. Everything in the home represents all of my personal inclinations: lots of white and natural textures, such as rattan and abaca, layered with interesting pieces. The overall effect is calm and relaxing, which is exactly what you want when at the beach.
What are your tips for creating such an easy-going and laidback space? Sun rooms are naturally inviting because of the light streaming in and this one is especially sunny thanks to windows on three sides of the room. I used a thick, cushy flokati rug to warm up the brick flooring and chose a versatile hair-on-hide ottoman that can also be used as a coffee table, footrest or as additional seating. All of these elements create the perfect place for a small gathering.

utilizing clean lines, exposed beams and rustic metals, designers sharla seton and diana byrne spark a coastal spirit in this family-friendly kitchen. You stripped this dated space of its existing beadboard cabinetry and dark-paneled ceiling. What was the jumping-off point? the existing space had more of a ski-chalet feel and we wanted it to better reflect the surrounding beach dunes of its true Westhampton setting. We freshened it up with a lighter paint color and countertops and chose a soft sandy-gray stain for the ceiling reminiscent of driftwood. keeping with the natural, beach feel of the home, the goal was to imagine as if the owner was walking down the beach, discovering different elements to pick up: a rusty nail, symbolized in the hardware; sandy toes, illustrated on the linen-covered stools; and a collection of seashells, reimagined through the marble slabs.
How did the cabinetry and hardware choices fit into the design? the shaker-style cabinetry is so beautiful in its simplicity. it was the perfect balance to the roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marble and rustic, oversize pendants. We exposed the butt hinge in an oil-rubbed bronze, but then added a modern angled cutter profile to keep the cabinets current. We then chose to panel the appliances so as to not break up the beautiful woodwork and to make the kitchen feel more like a furniture piece. tying into the deep veining of the marble, the hardware also gives a nice weight to the clean, cotton white cabinetry, and we knew it would age beautifully as the years go by. this is a style of kitchen that will last for decades. 260 / luxe interiors + design

What drew you to this particular marble? We were walking the marble yard trying to find the perfect piece and hidden high up on a shelf was this small, dusty chunk of marble that spawned the entire kitchen. We had originally planned on a glass-tile backsplash, but once we caught sight of the big slabs weeks later, we knew we had to continue it up the back wall, as well. the deep veining is so funky and wild, perfectly capturing the beach colors and the way that the ocean leaves markings in the sand at low tide.

What inspired such a bright color in this living room? After a few meetings, we discovered that our client loved the bold use of color and wanted a dramatic statement in the main entertaining space of the home. Once we realized that, we committed to a vivid color scheme that set the tone for the entire project. We chose a vibrant marine blue, offsetting it with crisp white and silver elements. Most people would have designed a more serious room in this formal space, but because our client was open to taking a more unexpected approach, she ended up with a room that became a real conversation piece.

This space radiates with a look that is quintessentially Hamptons. Blue-and-white is a classic color combination youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find throughout the Hamptons. In this case, however, we wanted to put our own spin on it, giving the room a signature look and feel. Touches of playful items, such as the mirror inspired by leaf coral, create a space that is the epitome of beach chic.

Why did you decide to keep the furnishings simplistic? Less is definitely more here and overcrowding was never the approach. The client preferred to let the blue be the star and to keep the accents to a minimum. The large scale of the room called for something to help envelope the furnishings and create a sharp and tailored contrast, and the crisp paneling was designed in a clean and transitional way to complement the space. Individual pieces are still able to hold your attention, showcasing a true appreciation for the artistry behind each decorative item.

How did you achieve the perfect balance of glamour and comfort? I approach each project with style, functionality and color in mind. The dramatic vaulted ceiling and existing fireplace and wall paneling helped give direction for this space to be a structured living room, to create a symmetrical layout to complement the more traditional architecture. We wanted the living room to function as a formal living space, but for casual weekend living. Since this room is located next to the playroom, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want anything too precious in this space, so we chose glamorous materials in sturdy finishes.
Green seems to be your color muse here. Why that particular hue? My muse was the picturesque gardens of Stourhead in England. The vegetation and architectural elements there conspire to make this magical place, and I sought to bring that same magical feel indoors. I designed this space for the young family to be airy, bright and approachable, furnishing the room in colorful purples to play off of the green. The client was so inspired that she selected the artwork to complement the hues of the room. I chose the vintage Silvano Pantani grape table lamps as a reference to the vineyard fields of Long Island.
Did any happy accidents happen during the design of this room? I wanted the space to have a commonality of materials, which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll notice through the prevelance of brass. One of the most striking brass pieces has quite the story. The clients had originally hired me to design their apartment in the city, and I had found these fabulous tessellated cream tables accented with brass inlay. They had to be purchased as a pair, even though at the time, the clients only needed one. Two years later, the other table finally found its home here.

There is something to be said about a no-fuss affair: The fine china can stay in the cupboard, silverware doesn’t have to be polished and the linens need not be pressed. With that level of ease, it’s easy to see why in recent years, there has been an emphasis on a more casual way of dining—think family-style dishes and bench seating. This summer, give your go-to formal tableau the night off and set the table with an edgy mix of vintage staples
and raw wood accessories, like a carved salvaged-wood salt cellar from Homenature coupled with hand-dyed linens from Silk & Willow in upstate New York. New classics such as imported porcelain espresso cups made by artisans in Italy and effortless Astier de Villatte plates—picked up at Bloom in Sag Harbor— create just the right amount of je ne sais quoi when peppered with antique stunners (like a fish-eye bottle opener). Sit back, relax and revel in the fact that fretting over your next tablescape is a thing of the past.

ith spectacular natural vistas, cool breezes and the entrancing sound of crashing waves, the Atlantic coast is an alluring location for a weekend getaway. So when a Manhattan couple with a young son found a unique property located on Mecox Bay in the Hamptons, they decided to build just such a retreat. The result is a three-level steel-and-concrete structure clad with western red cedar siding that will weather over time like a piece of driftwood. “The cedar will ultimately end up matching the boardwalk and the deck on the side of the pool,” explains architect Viola Rouhani. “The goal is for the building to really recede and allow nature to be the star of the show.” To prepare the sandy lot for construction, contractor Joe Lynch demolished the original home that once stood on the site and created a stable foundation for the new one by driving 75 wood pilings 40 feet into the ground.
“There was an enormous amount of engineering required to make the foundation work,” Lynch says. The modern structure has two volumes: one for the public spaces, and the other for more intimate spaces. A central core housing the main staircase links them and frames an ocean view that is visible from the large expanse of glass at the front entrance. “It was very important to us that there be an indication as you approach the house that there is this beautiful landscape on the other side,” Rouhani explains. Indeed, Rouhani’s design features floor-to-ceiling windows facing the bay to the west and curated views of the ocean to the east. To maintain the minimalistic look her clients’ envisioned, the architect eschewed draperies in favor of shades that are concealed in the ceiling and wood screens on the exterior. “The architectural screening creates beautiful shadow patterns in the space,” says interior designer Eleanor Donnelly, who selected finishes and designed many of the home’s furnishings. In the open
Opposite: The homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cedar siding has been laid out in horizontal and vertical orientations for both aesthetics and functionality. The horizontal boards help create an exterior balcony on the second floor, and the vertical boards form a screen that conceals an outdoor shower, storage and other utilitarian functions on the lower level. The anodizedaluminum door and window system is by Arcadia. Below: A sectional from Viesso, covered in a fabric blend from Maharam, and a pair of brushed stainless-steel-andwicker chairs by Fritz Hansen from Hive in Portland, Oregon, form a relaxed seating area in the great room. The custom cocktail table has a black-steel base by Battle Iron & Bronze and a bluestone top.

kitchen, for example, Donnelly incorporated custom built-in white Formica cabinetry that conceals a bar, additional refrigeration and storage. “It’s an industrial finish that holds up to family life and entertaining,” Donnelly explains. “Everything kind of happens in one large space, so we needed to house a lot of the clutter and mess of everyday life behind doors.” The gleaming white built-in complements the custom kitchen cabinetry, which is made of a wood veneer that resembles driftwood. The open space also includes areas for dining and conversation in front of a bluestone-clad fireplace, which echoes the soothing palette of bluegreen hues that can be found throughout the house. “Viola and I believe in a minimal palette, functional spaces and
honesty in materials,” Donnelly says. “We tried to repeat the materials and color throughout, so that the design is cohesive and you have one experience versus many different moments that are collected together.” Custom shelving continues in the third-floor hallway, this time made of walnut. The material reappears in the liveedge dining table in the great room and custom cabinetry in a casual den on the top floor, which has a screened-in porch overlooking the bay. The view from that space is Rouhani’s favorite thing about the modern abode. “It gives the sense of being on your own perch elevated above the water with views in all directions,” she explains. “We hoped to recreate the quintessential beach house that brings the outdoors in and the indoors out, and I think we accomplished that.”
Above: Landscape designer Chris LaGuardia created a plan to replace the original deck with a more compact version made of mahogany and remove invasive plant species, as well as installed native grasses and vegetation. The adjustable beach chairs are from Dedon. Opposite, clockwise from top left: The staircase’s floating treads are made of rift-cut white oak.

hen you’re Iris Dankner, you don’t just entertain; you entertain in multitudes. In fact, the New York socialite, designer, breast cancer survivor and highly visible fundraising dynamo (she almost doubled revenues for the Susan G. Komen foundation and founded Holiday House to raise money and awareness about the disease) is most comfortable in a crowd. So when Dankner went looking for a Southampton getaway 10 years ago, she knew she wanted a gracious yet sizeable home that could accommodate large gatherings. “I always loved Farrell homes,” she says of the construction company helmed by Joe Farrell, whose highly detailed custom residences are fixtures of the region. Unfortunatly, the one she fell in love with—a white-trimmed Shingle-style home with generous public spaces and an open flow—got away. But, as she recalls, “He had another property nearby where he was planning to build a similar home.” With the location being just minutes away from Little Peconic Bay, Dankner instead purchased that property and, with the help of architects James McDonough and Michael Conroy, “was able to make a few changes to the existing plan,” she says. The most substantial modification, remembers builder Steve Pryzby, Farrell’s vice president who took over the build once Dankner purchased the home, was “a master bedroom deck that extended much further out than was planned. We had to structuralize the columns by adding steel and footings.” A happy accident created a generous loggia by the pool for lounging. The interior boasts signature Farrell details, such as coffered ceilings and a two-story foyer that has a view straight out to the backyard and pool, which provides, says Pryzby, “that wow effect.” For Dankner, it is the moodsetter she wanted. “You step in and you feel like you’re away,” she observes. An inveterate traveler, Dankner is often away herself, and almost every year she alters the décor, sometimes radically, after each trip. For the master bath, she hauled a 19th-century French mirror from Paris’ Marché aux Puces across the ocean, while Guatemalan fabrics and a folk art giraffe infuse her daughter Niki’s red bedroom with ethnic flair. The family refers to the loggia under the master deck as “Belize,” because artifacts from a trip there decorate the table and landscape designer Tom Janczur’s potted plantings of elephant ears give it an exotic aspect. 296 / luxe interiors + design

Its mix of high and low furnishings includes chairs found at a flea market in Southampton that Dankner upholstered in a Nancy Corzine fabric.
298 / luxe interiors + design
The master deck itself morphed after a trip to Costa Rica—its patterned carpet and wire furnishings exuding a tropical charm. “I just love the outdoor spaces found in the Caribbean,” she says. Throughout the public spaces, Dankner deployed a palette of white, brown and blue, allowing one color to dominate in a certain room and recede in another. Brown, for example, takes center stage in the moody dining room, so that, “the white paneled walls could pop more,” she explains. But, this is the Hamptons, so white rules the roost in the living room and sun room, which are separated by a double-sided fireplace.
Outside, Janczur concentrated on placing ferns and low-flowering plants, “that seem like a woodland carpet,” he says. “Since the home sits on the main street, I tried to avoid making it seem like we stuck in a garden where it doesn’t belong.” The lush setting fulfills Dankner’s need for multiple entertaining areas while telegraphing a relaxed, no-nonsense elegance that befits its breezy, beachy locale. So whether Dankner decides to host a large poolside gala or a close friend stops by at a moment’s notice, the dignified hostess is always ready.

ic and Dena Hammel weren’t in the market for a new home. That is until they discovered the perfect house just three doors away on desirable Mecox Road. The Pennsylvania couple, who have made Bridgehampton their second home for nearly two decades, had recently met with designers on maximizing space in their current residence to accommodate visiting adult children and six grandchildren when they noticed a new construction nearby. “We were already in our dream house, and I never felt like we needed anything more,” recalls Dena of her traditional Shingle-style home she had decorated with country antiques. “But I just wanted to take a look inside—I guess that’s what all women say, I suppose!” Outfitted with fine oak finishes, an open floor plan free of hallways and a traditional-meets-modern aesthetic, Dena recognized that the house was the embodiment of her own minimalist sensibilities: “It took my breath away,” she says. “It was so unusual and understated, down to
the magnificent 100-year-old chestnut tree out front.” In a particularly felicitous turn, a For Sale sign soon went up, and the owners quickly purchased the house, which was conceived in a collaborative effort by architect James Merrell and builder Peter Cardel. “I envisioned it as a modern house bursting from a Colonial,” recalls Merrell, the visionary who joined the team on the basis that they create something different from the archetypal Hamptons home. Originally, a circa-1800 farmhouse stood on the property. “It was not a substantial house; it was more like a farmhand’s home,” says Cardel of the structure the team removed to build anew. But the team envisioned a home that would keep that history alive, and so, Cardel partnered with Merrell to bring about the idea of a modern farmhouse that, in the same way, would stand the test of time. Within the wide, U-shaped floor plan, the design team took advantage of the light that floods every room. Because of the unobstructed north- and south-facing views, the walls were washed in a neutral color palette
Architect James Merrell conceived of the minimal barn-style house with nods to both historical Hamptons and a Belgian sensibility, seen through the shingled exterior and the main entry unexpectedly located on the south-facing end of the house.

and furniture-grade oak paneling, creating a blank canvas for the Hammels’ longtime designer, Franco Biscardi, and his partner, architect Brian Brady, to create the serene interiors. “In the family room, they wanted one nice seating group, so we scaled up the upholstered pieces to accommodate the deep space,” says Brady, who fashioned a richly layered design scheme. Bespoke upholstery and a natural-toned rug underfoot blend comfortably with standout accents, from vintage iron and travertine-topped tables to a white plaster chandelier based on a Giacometti design. The duo also used window treatments sparingly to further enhance the clean lines of each space. 304 / luxe interiors + design
Of course, picking up on the long-standing beach house tradition, the heart of the home is the al fresco dining terrace paved with limestone and framed by picture windows. “The patio is my husband’s favorite spot and we have a massive picnic table that he insisted on. That was his only wish, to have a table that could seat the entire family,” says Hammel with a smile. And in the end, what started as a functional farmhouse turned out to be a chic, simplistic retreat—one that encompasses the ease of Hamptons living combined with the comfort and harmony of familial ties.
Cedar shingles and traditional barn doors define the family’s quaint single-car garage and pool house that is situated off the main entry.

BROWN HARRIS STEVENS Behind the success of Jennifer and Kieran Brew is a familial history steeped in New York real estate. The Brews moved to Amagansett from Brooklyn in 2002, where they owned and managed several retail and apartment spaces, including two restaurants. “The last restaurant was an interior landmark in Midtown,” Jennifer enthuses. “The history and architecture of this space (currently operating as the flagship restaurant for Wolfgang’s Steakhouse) sparked our continuing interest in architecture and design. Moving to the Hamptons was a natural choice to continue to be involved in real estate.” Under the auspices of Brown Harris Stevens, one of the country’s most regarded luxury residential real estate firms, Jennifer and Kieran have become two of the most sought-after real estate experts in the Hamptons. The husband-andwife team attributes much of their professional development and market insight to the prestigious 142-year-old company. “Brown Harris Stevens is a large, venerable firm with strong global connections, but the owners and managers are accessible to the agents,” Kieran says. One of the distinguishing factors of the Brews is their commitment to staying on top of technological advancements in the industry, which ultimately help market a property and connect buyers to sellers. Specializing in Hamptons real estate, including Amagansett, Montauk and East Hampton, Kieran notes the importance of using a broker in such a unique part of the country. “The real estate agent knows the nuances of the market, the characteristics of the neighborhood and the builder or developer of the home,” he says. “Agents don’t simply help find a home: They provide guidance and expert knowledge through the entire process.”

What factors do you consider when choosing your own home? Location. Land will always be more valuable than anything man-made upon it. Have you noticed recent trends in your marketplace? What are they? Buyers today not only want new construction so they have a turnkey home to move into, but they are also becoming more interested in buying newly and beautifully furnished homes. We are selling a lifestyle, not just an empty house. What is your favorite weekend hideaway? Solé East in Montauk. The owners and staff are terrific, and the space is a hidden gem in the bustle of the summer—but don’t tell anyone!

What do you like most about your job? The best part of my job is the continual opportunity to communicate and interact with a diverse clientele.

or Tod and Bonnie Greenfield, commissioning a home designed specifically for them and their two teenage daughters just made sense. After all, Tod runs the family company, Martin Greenfield Clothiers, which for decades has been tailoring bespoke suits for U.S. presidents, pop stars and hit cable television shows. So when the couple decided they wanted a home that would need less maintenance than their aging 1960s-era split-level in Old Westbury, they called on architect Stuart Narofsky to build anew. “The original house needed a lot of repair work, and so we chose to start from scratch instead of renovating what we had,” Tod explains, noting that the original abode’s wooden shingles needed to be scraped and painted regularly. “We couldn’t find any place that we liked better than our special piece of land, so we opted to just knock our house down and start over.” The result is a modernist concrete home clad with reclaimed wood milled from black locust trees that grew on the site before being felled during Hurricane Irene. “Right from the beginning, Stuart was interested in creating a kind of pathway that wound around a central courtyard with a series of almost pavilion-like rooms that were building up as they spiraled around,” explains architect John DeFazio, who assisted during the initial planning stages. In fact, the J-shaped home literally straddles a dip in the landscape, allowing the lawn to pass underneath the building. “The landscape actually moves through the house,” explains Narofsky, whose firm handled not only the architectural plans but also the construction and interior design. According to structural engineer Nat Oppenheimer, of Silman, using concrete to build a home is more complicated than using it in more typical commercial designs. “The column grid and layout were predicated almost entirely on walls and partitions inside the house rather than the usual, simpler structural grid,” he explains. “Because of this, we had to be very conscious of the size, layout and profile of the concrete.” To minimize the impact of the construction 330 / luxe interiors + design
Separating the main living area from the sunken seating nest that overlooks the forested yard is a modular bookshelf made from pin oaks that were removed from the property. To reinforce the connection to the exterior, a custom sofa and matching loveseat covered in gray leather by Spinneybeck was designed by Ways2Design to resemble boulders.

on the land, landscape architect Jeff Dragan transplanted many of the plant material, including English oak, Japanese umbrella pine and Colorado blue spruce trees, as well as a variety of shrubs, to a temporary nursery. “We moved the material and then put it back after construction,” Dragan explains. “The house didn’t need a lot of foundation planting or accents.” Indeed, because nearly every room has direct access to the rolling green lawn, the house seems to be part of the landscape. To bring the sunshine inside, the courtyard side of the house was clad in a translucent polycarbonate panel, which floods the home with daylight. In the evening, the panel is illuminated from the inside, which creates a warm glow in the courtyard. “The house is full of discoveries,” Narofsky says. In places where drywall would ordinarily be, Narofsky either exposed the rough concrete surface, which was poured into wood forms that lend the surface an organic
appearance, or he covered it with custom MDF panels that had been screwed onto oak framing. “We expressed the oak framing rather than hiding it,” Narofsky notes. “It became a real arts-and-crafts endeavor.” In fact, nearly every railing, bench and vanity in the home was built using wood salvaged from the property. “We had to figure out what we had to work with and how to implement that in the house as we went along, all while making it a luxury home that’s super-functional,” explains interior designer Katrina Hermann, who worked alongside interior designer Jennifer Rusch. “As you go through the house, you see all these interesting elements, which come either from the deep recesses of our brains or from the backyard.” To contrast the reclaimed wood, mottled concrete and other organic elements, the designers took special care to create other, more decorated areas. “We tried to find places in the home that we could kind of polish for
The modern home has four balconies plus a courtyard, which ensure a seamless flow between inside and out. The structure was built from poured concrete with vertical siding from wood milled from black locust trees felled during Hurricane Irene. The roof is a liquid-applied roofing system by Kemper System.
Although paired with a set of vintage chairs, the dining table is a new piece that was designed by Narofsky Architecture and made by carpenters during construction using a steel I-beam and wood milled from oak trees that were cleared from the site.

Bonnie and achieve that high level of design within this deconstructed atmosphere,” says Rusch. In the kitchen, for example, sleek counter surfaces—white Corian for the island and stainless steel for the perimeter—complement contemporary cabinetry from Eggersmann. “We felt that the kitchen should be this sort of glamorous, smooth and seamless millwork masterpiece,” Rusch adds. The living room was furnished with oversize sofas that were designed to resemble large boulders coming out of the ground. “We upholstered them in raw cut buffalo hide and let the natural cuts define where the seams were going to be,” Hermann explains. “While they look very rigid, they are actually very comfortable and seat a lot of people.” Narofsky’s favorite spot in the house is a sunken seating pit surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the forested backyard. “You step down into it and you’re hovering off the corner of the house,” he says, noting that it was inspired by the iconic 50s-era Eero Saarinen-designed Miller House in Indiana. A custom bookshelf creates a sense of separation between the nest and nearby living room. “I put the nest in the prime viewing spot of the property,” he says, “and it’s the most wonderful place to sit. Whenever I visit the house, I’m just in awe.”

o us, everything is artwork,” explains Rebecca Thompson, one half of the team at the creative brand Petta Thompson. “It’s all about an environmental encompassing of space.” Thompson and her business partner, Rita Petta, agree on many things, but the most definitive is how their collaborative work embraces countless influences. By leveraging their knowledge of interiors, painting, printmaking and restoration, the pair have created a true artist studio in Connecticut that, as Petta says, “Just happens to make a lot of home products.” For the past eight years, Petta and Thompson have been crafting sculpture, paintings, decorative accessories and innovative wallcoverings with a signature appeal. “We both collaborate together,” notes Thompson, who has what she says is a deep history in painting and printmaking. “With Rita’s experience as an interior designer, we always want the same thing but look at it in two different ways. That’s what makes our work so successful.” With three printing presses—a small lithography and etching press that they use only in pre-production, a larger lithography press and a sizeable Takach press customized to accommodate bespoke wallcoverings— each wall tile is made in-house with tangible materials like block prints and hand-carved plates. “We want people to be involved and inquisitive at what they are looking at,” says Petta, who refers to their approach as diversified. Thompson agrees. “When you’re looking at a wall,” she says, “we want it to grab your attention and just bring you into that space.” Having met while studying in Italy during their college years, the duo instantly connected over a shared aesthetic of historical elements within art and design, and from that moment on, worked in tandem to create their thriving studio. “At the time, we both had a desire to find ways to be more creative and the opportunity arose to design and manufacture wallcoverings and objects for other designers,” explains Petta. “This led to the natural progression of creating all of our handmade art and objects under the Petta Thompson brand.” Petta and Thompson’s designs are small-scale, selective and sublime, with their methods thoughtful and ultra-traditional. Their latest wallcoverings collection, which was two years in the making, includes roughly ten styles utilizing just what the two women love the most: traditional materials and techniques like embossment, veneer and papyrus. For this collection, all of the plates were hand-carved by Thompson and Petta, giving each design a personal touch. And as far as inspirations go, nature is at the forefront, with the harsh East Coast winter (now a distant memory) a springboard for the palettes and techniques. “The constant thawing and freezing is replicated through the top coats and finishes,” explains Petta. A few years shy of a decade working together, the duo’s process is fluid and sanguine: Think yin and yang at its finest. While one might instigate a design, the other will alter or experiment with it, adding yet another layer to its presence. And this, as they say, is where the magic happens.

riving along almost any winding Connecticut road, numerous clapboard Colonial houses dot the lush landscape, a fact architect Amanda Martocchio had in mind when she renovated the New Canaan home of David and Virginia Schwartz. But perhaps more than anything else, Martocchio was thinking about modernism. “New Canaan has a tradition of modern design,” she says. “The area has a strong appreciation for what the movement was all about, which is openness, a connection to the outdoors, a pared-down aesthetic and interesting materials.” The Schwartz’s original residence was a 1990s house built in the Colonial style to fit in with the nearby historical homes. Because of this, the structure lacked a certain authenticity and had no modern qualities—things the couple had come to appreciate and crave. “We had lived in our house for a little more than ten years,” says David, who worked on Wall Street and is now a private investor. “We loved our neighborhood and didn’t want to leave, but we wanted something different. We wanted something clean and simple.” At a point when the couple was at the end
of their traditional rope, they serendipitously bumped into Martocchio and, soon after, the Schwartzes commissioned her to renovate their master suite. “They were dipping their toes in the water and were apprehensive about remodeling their entire house,” she says. “But once they saw the completed master suite, they decided to take the plunge.” Making her initial updates to the home on the outside first, Martocchio, with the help of project manager Rick Bellefeuille, replaced the cedar shake roof with standingseam lead-coated copper. “We gutted the entire house and kept only the frame, which we then added onto,” says Bellefeuille. “We took a traditional home and incorporated numerous modern features.” The team also switched out double-hung windows for the casement variety and maintained the stone front façade, but decided to change the portico to a glass canopy that suspends above the teak door—a modern move on the architect’s part. While Martocchio took a less-is-more approach to the architectural details, she took a more-is-more approach to the coveted indoor-outdoor connection the Schwartzes craved. Sited next to a wooded nature preserve, the
Traditional elements, including a stone façade and cedar clapboard siding, are balanced with such modernist details as a glass canopy above the teak front door and a lead-coated copper roof.

property featured an enviable landscape, but as it were, the house had small windows in all the wrong places. “Amanda blew out the entire back corner of the house and added 1,000 square feet to the rear façade,” says Bellefeuille on how they decided to let in more light. Martocchio then installed a 12-foot-wide glass door on the northeast corner to capitalize on the views. “You can slide the doors into pockets and really remove part of the house to connect with nature,” she says. Just beyond the glass, the interior is a modernist oasis that features an open-plan living space. Two upper-level balconies, a lower-level screened-in porch, a mudroom and an office make up the rest of the house’s added space.
To streamline the interiors, Martocchio partnered with her longtime friend, designer Gary Cruz, who brought in his innate sense of color to liven up the neutral palette. “I like to start with rugs and build up from there,” says Cruz, who designs his own hand-knotted floorcoverings that are woven in Nepal and sold at his studio in New York City. The designer customized rugs for each space in the residence, giving each room a distinct color—such as a pumpkin border on the rug in the dining room and a chartreuse edge on the rug in the entry—despite the open floor plan. When it came time to choose art, it was important to both designers that the artwork wasn’t purely for

decoration—there had to be intent. “Amanda and I urged the Schwartzes to start looking at the work of great contemporary artists,” says Cruz, an artist in his own right who received a Pollock-Krasner grant and exhibited work at White Columns exhibition space and The Drawing Center museum in Manhattan. The couple had a great collection of traditional wall hangings but they seemed out of place in their new, more modern home. So, with a persuasive bent from both Cruz and Martocchio, they decided it was time for a more serious art collection. “We reduced the amount of decorative objects so that the art we were bringing in was regarded as spectacular and special,” David says.
The new design expression of the Schwartz’s home now successfully incorporates the unique, modern heritage of New Canaan while still highlighting its illustrious traditional vernacular. By preserving the gabled roof and the stone façade outside, and then eliminating impractical details and ornamentation on the inside, harmony prevails between the old and the new. But what truly stands out is how the architect created something more fluid and connected to the outdoors. “With so many houses going up in the last 20 years that look identical, there’s a greater appreciation for diversity and innovation,” Martocchio says. “I always want to create homes that are unique and reflect the way we live today.” luxe interiors + design / 355

L “I love the warmth of bronze, the tone and color; It’s sensual yet quIte challengIng to work wIth.”
ike the deft hand of a surgeon, New York City-based artist and designer Erin Sullivan, of Erin Sullivan Objects, can manipulate bronze into extraordinary masterpieces—a skill that only few have mastered—and her first collection of furniture and accessories, which launched only a year ago, has garnered the attention of both designers and collectors alike. Though Sullivan has dabbled in many different artistic mediums— fashion, fine arts and jewelry—it was bronze that truly captivated her. “I love the warmth of bronze, the tone and color; it’s sensual yet quite challenging to work with,” she says. “It was important that my first collection be enduring, something that stands the test of time, and I think bronze speaks to that.” Sullivan’s fondness for metals began while attending Sarah Lawrence College, where she fell in love with printmaking. “I enjoyed all aspects of it, but in particular, the process known as intaglio,” she says. The designer later experimented with fashion, where she developed a passion for textiles and furthered her jewelry design, both of which influenced her current collections. “I was looking at old sketches of rings and bracelets, which I had worked on while in metalsmithing, and I saw them blown up as tables and stools,” she says. “That was when I knew I was meant to make furniture and objects.” But it wasn’t until Sullivan became deeply involved in her own renovation projects (an 1803 Dutch stone house in Lomontville and her New York City pied-à-terre) that a new career ensued. “There were things I wanted for those spaces that simply didn’t exist,” she says. “It developed my interest in functional form and I became obsessed with designing.”
Sullivan admits, though, that many of her ideas didn’t come to fruition until she was introduced to a local fine art foundry in Brewster. “I have amazing people around me helping me get every piece made,” she says. Because of the unique handmade quality, no two are the same. “Each piece is sensual, spiritual and original; a study in natural beauty, as well as balance, form and context,” she says. This spring, the designer debuted a collection of hardware offered in cast bronze and plated stainless steel and is now focusing on a brandnew collection of sconces that will incorporate new-to-her materials like crystal and brass. Sullivan playfully recalls the exact childhood moment she first became aware of beauty. “It was an object that struck me as both beautiful and intriguing,” she says. “It stayed with me and inspired the Bubble table, one of my first bronze pieces.” And now, as Erin Sullivan Objects marks its second year in business, it is clear that a myriad of beautiful objects are still yet to come.
Sullivan, left, sits poised in her workroom in upstate New York surrounded by her signature oversize Mala beads and bronze creations; the Mala collection was inspired by traditional prayer beads and the Egyptian symbol of the scarab, which represents transformation and rebirth. Standing at just under 2 feet tall, Sullivanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bronze Bubble table, below, can be used utilitarian-style or as a piece of sculpture. Molds are placed in the oven, bottom, to bring them up to temperature before the bronze is poured; the designer paints her snake mold, far left, using hot, red wax.

One of the signatures in the design of the home is the use of oversized lighting. Here, in the entry hall, interior designer Kevin Dumais had a large carriage house lantern, one of three, crafted by Remains Lighting in polished nickel and oil-rubbed bronze that looks aged.

hen interior designer Kevin Dumais did his initial walk-through with his clients of their newly built, Shingle-style Colonial house in Bridgehampton, what he found was a place literally built for entertaining. “It would be so easy to create three individual indoor-outdoor rooms,” Dumais explains of the living room, kitchen and great room that open onto a long patio that extends the full length of the house. “When the doors slide open you can easily flow in and out.” The homeowners, who live full-time in the city and purchased this house as a weekend retreat, were smitten with the property and envisioned the home as a place where they could kick back with family and friends on weekends and holidays. However, there was a catch: Dumais was hired in March and the family had a Memorial Day deadline. The owners planned on having overnight guests by that time, so rudimentary accommodations had to be in place; after that, a more leisurely approach could commence. Time was of the essence, but luckily Dumais was given carte blanche with the design. To begin, Dumais approached the design with a modern eclectic flair that focused around custom furniture, statement lighting and plenty of vintage panache, which turned out to be a perfect contrast to the traditional feel of the architecture. “The house has a layout that can feel quite formal, so we wanted to contrast that with a casual, urban sophistication,” says Dumais. “Now, there’s a nice juxtaposition between the two styles.” When designing the house, architect William Minnear, who worked with project manager Jonathan Favaro on the build, explained that while it may have some of the hallmarks of tradition, the updated style combines old and new. “The house has two rooflines which makes it a little different from the houses more typically found in the Hamptons,” he says. “The unique roof gives it a more contemporary feel.”
“The layouT can feel formal, so we wanTed To conTrasT ThaT wiTh a casual, urban sophisTicaTion.” -Kevin dumais
Working from the outside in, Dumais culled the majority of outdoor furnishings from Restoration Hardware, choosing pieces made from teak because they will turn a silvery gray over time. “It’s such a large space, so we used pieces that have a little bit of scale and heft to them,” says Dumais. Comfortable upholstered pieces make each designated outdoor space feel more like interior rooms. When the couple bought the house, a pool had already been installed, but the backyard green space was otherwise “just vast areas of lawn,” says landscape designer Matthew Stengel, who oversaw the outdoor beautification of the home. For privacy, Stengel planted towering Hinoki cypress trees, screening an area where the barbecue faces the road. Uniform bluestone pavers that connect the house to the pool now have grass in between, creating a modern look, while beds of pink hydrangea border the terrace. After the holiday deadline, Dumais could refocus and put all of his energy on the inside, starting from scratch with all-new furnishings. “We had this big empty house to fill,” says Dumais. “So we ended up using a lot of vintage items. That helped because they’re readily available and they create an eclectic space.” Dumais then mixed things up with tailored upholstered pieces, such as custom sofas in both the great room and living room, and a pair of 1940s French iron armchairs he upholstered in a Rogers & Goffigon linen in the great room. The occasional one-off, like the tree stump coffee table in the living room the designer found locally at Mecox Gardens, reflects the couple’s fun, youthful taste and the casual ease they were looking for in the design. Special attention was paid to the living room, kitchen and great room, since that’s where the couple spends most of their time. Because these rooms also spill onto the terrace, Dumais unified the spaces with oversized lighting. In the great room, a delicate Fontana Arte Avico dome holds court, while in the kitchen, Dumais chose two classic globe pendants from Remains Lighting. And, perhaps hinting toward a life lived near the sea, a large capiz shell pendant takes center stage in the living room. “At night, when they are all lit up, they look like lanterns or beacons,” says Dumais. “They create a really nice glow, especially when viewed from the outdoors.” With everything in place, the house is now ready for every possible entertaining scenario. “The couple is young and energetic and they truly love to entertain and be with their friends,” says Dumais. “And even though we were kind of in a rush to get it finished, the outcome really works for their lifestyle and personalities.” To create a layered, elegant home in the Hamptons is a dream come true for any designer. And for Dumais, it was only a matter of time.

MUSEUM QUALITY LUXE TAPPED DESIGNER DOUG MEYER FOR THIS YEAR’S DINING BY DESIGN EVENT, BENEFITTING DIFFA (DESIGN INDUSTRIES FOUNDATION FIGHTING AIDS). HERE, HE BREAKS DOWN HIS COMMEMORATIVE VISION. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ
Your design is a quiet, unexpected departure from the vivacious style you’re known for. Talk us through your inspiration for the space. When I first was brainstorming an idea, I thought about all the amazing people that passed away in the beginning of the AIDS crisis. To me, the most important thing to do was make people think: “Why are you here? What is this benefit for, and who are the people that were there from the beginning of this industry?” There’s definitely a pensive mood to your presentation. I wanted to create a feeling similar to walking into a museum, where there’s an immediate hushed tone when you step inside. You go from the noisy street and into this space, and there’s an instant level of respect. Your brain twists and goes into another mode where it’s like, “Ok, now it’s time to look at and think about something.”
Designer Doug Meyer, pictured at top, selected Flexform’s Gipsy table and Betty chairs as the centerpieces of his Dining by Design space, above. Showcased in the vitrines on both sides of the room are 19 artful depictions of luminaries in the creative world that were lost to HIV/AIDS. A few of his handcrafted creations are seen at right and below.
400 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN
What function does the pavilion at the center of the Flexform table play? It brought in an architectural object to the space; it provided a light source during the dinner; and it displayed the obituaries of all 19 heroes exactly as they appeared in The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, so when people were looking at the cases, they could turn around and read more about everyone depicted. When you do something like this, you want it to touch people in whatever manner—happy, sad, educate them, make them think about something in a different way. That’s my reason for doing all of this.

This could have taken on a somber tone, but you found a way to make it more retrospective. That was my whole thing, to at least try to bring these people and what they did back to this generation. There was architect and designer Alan Buchsbaum, who invented the idea of the loft and redefined how people live in New York; and artist Leigh Bowery, who highly influenced the work of Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and even Lady Gaga. All of these people were so brilliant and no one ever remembers them. I hope I did them justice with the portraits I created for the vitrines.
