Beyond the stones, impeccable fabrication is paramount.” Among his many standout designs are pieces made with exceptionally elusive gems such as tanzanite—a gem only found in its home country of Tanzania and at least 1,000 times rarer than diamonds—violet sapphires and emeralds.

Curating Timeless Interiors from 1stDibs’ Editorial Director Anthony Barzilay Freund
HOME & DESIGN
First launched in 2000 as an online marketplace for antiques, 1stDibs has grown to be one of the world’s most popular, trusted and respected resources for rare and opulent home furnishings and décor—think custom chaises and Art Deco side tables, Chanel cushions, Italian vases, 18th-century oil paintings, statement mirrors and postmodern pendant lights.
But what should an aspiring home curator/designer do before adding to their collection and infusing a room with vintage charm? Anthony Barzilay Freund, Editorial Director at 1stDibs, answers our most pressing questions—from today's most in-demand designs to time-honored investments, big buying mistakes, access to vetted interior advisors and more.
How do you source and curate items on the site?
We work with more than 6,000 sellers from around the world. We have a very strong vetting process that is used to determine the sellers that we work with, which allows us to offer a highly curated shopping experience.
What are the biggest mistakes people make when trying to integrate a rare or collectible design into their home?
The biggest mistake I see people make when trying to integrate rare collectibles into their homes is using too many classic pieces, or only using pieces from one period or style. The most interesting rooms are achieved through confident curation, which means layering iconic pieces with lesser-known works, deploying antiques, vintage and newly minted items in a way that sparks an interesting conversation among them. It’s also achieved by decorating without paying too much attention to name brands and trophies.
What are some of today’s most popular, coveted collectibles or antique home decor pieces?
In terms of what we refer to as “Iconic Designs,” Hermès bags (specifically Birkin and Kelly bags) are our top sellers, taking over that position from Faye Toogood’s eternally popular Roly Poly chairs. Charlotte Perriand’s CP1 wall lights, Isamu Noguchi’s Akari lanterns and Ettore Sottsass’s Ultrafragola Mirrors are also widely searched and purchased.
Hermès bags (specifically Birkin and Kelly bags) are our top sellers.
THE AGENCY I 31
1stDibs to find distinct home décor?
For our top customers, we offer private client-service advisers who find and source whatever these clients desire. We also work with more than 40,000 interior designers and have the ability to refer our customers to interior designers all over the world. One of the key benefits of our Trade Program is that we offer enrolled interior designers access to a team of experts who can source items for the full spectrum of their projects, working to curate selections based on their specifications, and hunting down special rare pieces from sellers across the globe.
I always tell people that quality always holds its value best, so look to buy the best example in the best possible condition of a work by a maker you admire, even if it means stretching your budget a bit. Otherwise, turn to a maker whose prices are slightly lower and buy his or her best works.
Clearly, we believe vetting should be a vital part of the purchasing process, which is why we’ve invested so much in curating our collection of international sellers who comprise our marketplace. That said, it’s always a good idea when purchasing a valuable piece of furniture or decorative item online to ask the dealer for a detailed document with additional photographs and outlining condition and provenance. This gives you added confidence that what you’re purchasing is what is advertised—and what you’re expecting or picturing is what you’ll receive when it shows up on your doorstep.
Is there a certain era or style that is popular among collectors right now?
The time periods that are seeing the largest yearover-year growth in terms of order volumes are the 1600s and 1700s. On the other end of the timeline, 21st-century pieces are seeing year-over-year growth. “Mid Century” and the 1960s and 1970s are consistently popular with our customers with dependably high order volumes.
If you really want to build a distinctive collection, free yourself from time constraints and a schedule and accept that it’s okay to acquire these pieces over time. Giving yourself the luxury of time will not only open up possibilities for discovering new and exciting objects, but it will also allow you to develop your expertise, refine your aesthetic and understand with greater clarity the way you want your home to look and feel.

What is your go-to advice for someone looking to add a distinct collectible or rare design element into their home?
us about your process: How do you help a client who comes to
What do you tell clients to avoid when they are looking for rare, collectible pieces for their homes?
For our top customers, we offer private client-service advisers who find and source whatever these clients desire.
In your opinion, what is the crème de la crème of home collectibles or rare vintage home items?
Italy’s most prolific and brilliant designer of the 20th century, Gio Ponti, could do no wrong—whether it was architecture, furniture or decorative objects that he was setting his sights on. In the latter category, his ceramic vases from the 1930s are particularly desirable.
Are there any particular designs or collectibles you’re seeing rise in popularity as of late?
Among the most sought-after creations on 1stDibs are by the Italian husband-and-wife postmodern designers Afra and Tobia Scarpa, especially their seating creations. We continually receive sourcing requests for these pieces, and their market keeps increasing.
Furniture and lighting from the 1930s and 1940s by French designer Jean Royere are scarce—they come to market much less frequently than works by his contemporaries—but they are forever highly coveted. This owes to their intrinsic beauty, of course, and high quality of craftsmanship and material, but it’s also because so many of Royere’s designs informed the furniture of today and therefore harmoniously find their place in even the most contemporary or forward-thinking rooms.
Do you have a favorite collectible or rare piece in your own home?
I found on 1stDibs a pair of side tables, circa 1940, for our bedroom in our country house. They're attributed to Jacques Adnet, a master of French art deco known for his use of luxurious materials and visually pleasing geometries.
Although these have seen slightly better days, I'm a fan of patina—especially if it's juxtaposed against new pristine pieces, like our contemporary bed. And, anyway, no amount of age or wear can detract from their extremely cool forms and interesting mix of sycamore, mirror and brass detailing. 1stDibs.com

I got hungry for success at an early age,” states Julie, whose background in “hard” finance— stocks and hedge funds—helped to nourish both her competitive nature and her love of whiskey.
“This was a high-testosterone, “win or die” world where the guys smoked cigars, played poker and drank Scotch single malts” muses Julie. “Every aspect of this career and lifestyle was competitive. Now it had me—the renegade.”
To survive and excel in her finance career, Julie honed her poker skills and learned how to smoke cigars (two habits she has since retired), but her love and appreciation for Scotch single malts prevailed long past her hedge fund days. That passion is what ultimately led Julie to create her very own spirit, The Macklowe.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THROWN INTO DEEP WATER TO EITHER SWIM WITH THE SHARKS OR BE EATEN ALIVE? AND ONCE YOU GET WET YOU FIND YOU’RE JUST AS HUNGRY, MAYBE EVEN HUNGRIER, THAN THE SHARKS? THAT WAS ME.
THESE BOTTLES ARE LIKE FERRARIS.
Clocking in at 46% ABV, and priced at $1,500 per bottle, The Macklowe is made from 100% malted barley distilled in 2014 and matured in new American ISC Kentucky virgin oak barrels. The liquor is distilled in the same way as bourbon, using a column still and a copper doubler. The result? A sumptuous golden-hued liquor, with rich, malty notes and hints of honey and clove wafting from the nose. The taste is even more impressive; a beautiful mix of spice and dark fruit, a rich, velvety mouthfeel and finished with light tropical fruit. “These bottles are like Ferraris: luxurious, elegant, with deep nuances that lift them from the ordinary,” states Julie.
The packaging adds to the appeal. Housed in an elegant, hand-crafted, square-shaped bottle, it’s modeled after Julie’s trusty flask that she still carries to this day. “The bottle shape is a reminder to drink what you like; not what you’re told to like. Whiskey is personal,” says Julie.
Julie’s whiskey obsession was crafted through experience. “As I traveled the world for work, I started collecting whiskey: the Far East, Europe, ending up in Speyside, Kentucky or Paris. Everywhere I went I sought out the bottle stores and duty-free shops and stuffed my suitcases for the trip home. One bottle leads to another bottle, and now…” Julie’s private collection is sure to impress even the most discerning enthusiasts. But whether she’s drinking a bottle from 1936 or 2022, her collection is driven by palate—not price. “I love the entire range of flavors available, from malted barley, fruity and spicy, all the way to smokey or peaty,” says Julie.
With so many bottles in one place—over 1,000 if we’re counting—Julie noticed a gap. A collection of whiskey this impressive covered nearly every category available, from Scotch single malt to Japanese blended whiskey; but there was not one luxury American single malt. “So I decided to create it myself,” states Julie.

A spirit as notable, unique and complex as The Macklowe doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of passion for the craft and involves an esoteric level of knowledge. Master distiller and blender Ian MacMillian fits the bill perfectly. MacMillian is one of the greatest living master blenders of whiskey. He’s been in the whiskey business for nearly 50 years, and his resume includes the likes of Burn Steward (makers of Bunnahabhain, Tobermory and Deanston) and most recently the revival of the Bladnoch Distillery, one of the oldest Scotch Whisky distilleries in Scotland, which Ian helped nurse back to life.
Together, Julie and Ian worked to create the four special casks that The Macklowe has since released: #61, #60, #62 and #58, which debuts this year. Release #61 was a single cask of distinction that produced only 237 bottles worldwide. The following releases, #60 and #62, produced only 231 and 257 bottles, respectively. Those who wish to purchase a bottle of a previous release are sadly out of luck. Macklowe pre-sold all bottles to a chosen list of individuals and fine dining restaurants in New York City that includes the likes of Daniel, Eleven Madison Park, Polo Bar and Jean-Georges.
Those intrigued about cask #58 can join the waitlist to purchase one of the 260 bottles being released later this year. TheMacklowe.com
FINE DINING, WINE & SPIRITS
Jenni Kayne is the modern entertaining genius behind a complete lifestyle brand—from wardrobe essentials to everything that makes a house a home, Kayne creates effortless staples without sacrificing style or comfort.
Executive Head Chef Rafaelle Lenzi helms Sereno Hotels’ Al Mare Restaurant at Le Sereno St. Barts and Ristorante Al Lago at Il Sereno in Lake Como. Chef Lenzi has earned his stripes working in Michelinstarred restaurants worldwide, aiming to both surprise and delight guests through the use of various consistencies and contrasts.
The Agency chatted with Kayne and Chef Lenzi on how to take a gathering to the next level.
THE AGENCY 39
“I want everyone to feel welcome and cozy,” says Kayne. “Winter and holiday gatherings are so special because of the celebratory nature that’s in the air, and I try to bring that sense of the season to every event. Sit-down dinners are great when you’re wanting something a bit more intimate, but I always like to keep these types of gatherings more casual by serving dinner family-style and making sure the guest list is a bit more limited. Informal parties with hors d'oeuvres are perfect for the busy moments of the season when you want to keep your gatherings simple yet impactful. I like to make a large, batched cocktail for self-serve ease and a few different appetizers, and then mingle with my guests freely. I think the visuals and overall aesthetic elevate any experience, especially when you’re indoors. That of course comes down to the tablescape and décor around your space.”
Go for the Unexpected
“In describing the dishes I make on the menu, I tend to be very basic,” says Chef Lenzi. “I don't want to communicate the message that our food is too difficult or elaborate. When the dishes arrive at the table, however—perhaps precisely for this reason—customers are blown away: from the gustatory point of view, because my recipes are both tasty and light, but also from the aesthetic point of view. When customers expected gnocchi served in the classic way, I served them plattered and when reading cardoncelli mushrooms, they expected them already cut, I served them whole. Another aspect of my cuisine that pleasantly surprises customers is amuse bouche and petitfour. We anticipate the amuse bouche in the menu and serve them at the beginning of dinner, as small, more structured plates rather than as actual snacks. As for the petit-four, however, the same speech made before is valid. The attention to detail is obsessive, even more so for the size of the desserts we bring to the table. Now, my petit-four is made up of tiramisu with chicory coffee, cream puffs with porcini, black peel root with licorice, tarte tatin of peaches and rosemary and pumpkin and chocolate. Here too, at the end of the meal, customers have the opportunity to experiment with new tastes and feel pampered simultaneously.”
Find the Right Flavors
“Undoubtedly, simple flavors inspire me around the holidays,” says Chef Lenzi. “Two holidays to which I am particularly attached and which I particularly associate with gastronomy, for my origins in Campania and for my childhood spent in the region, are Christmas—in particular, Christmas Eve dinner—and New Year's Eve. In both cases, the flavors of the sea inspire me, because they are the ones I grew up with on these occasions. In addition to the ingredients that you can commonly eat throughout the year such as seafood and some fish—red snapper, sea bass, sea bream or turbot (each house has its own tradition)—there are others that I only link to an occasional consumption connected to the party: sea truffles, fried capitone and cod. The latter are two real musts, and the cod can be prepared stewed.
“In Italy, white truffle of Alba is a prized ingredient both economically and gastronomically. I always recommend using it moderately in very simple dishes—risotto, long fresh pasta or egg on the stake. Other opulent products that can enhance the experience are caviar, oysters and saffron in pistils. Finally, another highly prized and therefore rare ingredient on the tables, practically absent in homemade ones, is finger lime, a particular citrus fruit of the Australian subtropical eastern coastal area. Its peculiarity is to internally resemble caviar, but also to be characterized by a citrusy taste, with very strong acidity.”
“I always try to make sure that everything a guest will want is taken care of,” Kayne notes. “I’ll serve a crowd-pleasing cocktail in incredible glassware, make sure there’s plenty of food, and create a flow that allows guests to wander and catch up beyond the bustle of the party.”
Delight In the Details
“It’s all about the experience, which always comes to life through the details,” says Kayne. “Florals go a long way, and I always try to draw on my surroundings by bringing in branches and other blooms that feel festive. I also think that smaller touches like personalized cards at every place setting and parting gifts make every guest feel special. I like to drape our Jenni Kayne Sheepskins on sofas and dining benches for guests to get cozy and light our Glass Candles throughout the space to create a luxe experience. Our Pacific Dinnerware and linen tabletop accessories can pull any tabletop scene together instantly, and you can’t underestimate the power of a great playlist!”
Chef Lenzi agrees: “If we take the atmosphere for granted, which must be appropriate to the location, I would say the attention to detail is what takes a dinner party to the next level. In revisited traditional dishes, I believe that the extra something is the touch that each chef chooses to add. In my version of babà [Neapolitan confectionery], for example, the leavened product is soaked with Strega—an Italian liqueur with 70 herbs such as saffron, fennel and mint—instead of rum and combined with the local taste of saffron, served here in ice cream powder. In signature dishes, on the other hand, people are faced with something more personal and intimate, but nothing changes in regard to attention to detail. For example, in my Porcini mushrooms, ovules, lovage and coffee there are two different varieties of mushrooms: porcino and ovulo. The latter is presented raw, while the porcini mushrooms are present in the form of broth, baked in the oven and in a crunchy pastry.”

SavoySenchaCabbage, Tea, Annurca Apple Sorbet and Foie Gras Terrine
In Torno, on Lake Como, there is a 5-star luxury hotel, recently named Best Hotel in Italy according to the ranking drawn up by Condé Nast Traveler. This is Il Sereno, an exclusive pearl of Italian hospitality which, inside, houses an exceptional restaurant. Here, the corporate chef of the Sereno Hotels hotel group Raffaele Lenzi serves a tasting menu named Contrasts and Contradictions: the goal is to celebrate the contrasts of flavors and gastronomic cultures and the chef's creativity. It was from this idea that the Savoy cabbage, sencha tea, Annurca apple sorbet and foie gras terrine dish was born.
“I chose cabbage and sencha tea because their lightness and bitterness balance the fatness and sweetness of the foie gras, an ingredient that brings a note of exclusivity to the dish. To finish the dish, I used a fermented Annurca apple sorbet, made with a fruit variety from my region of origin, Campania, which is characterized by a white and crunchy pulp and a sweet and aromatic flavor.”

Terrine of Foie Gras
250 G DUCK FOIE GRAS

Remove the first layers of external leaves from the cabbage and cut into 6 wedges. Vacuum-pack the previously calibrated cabbage wedges with the marinade and cook in the oven at 212°F steam for 50 minutes or in a pot of boiling water. After the minutes, check that the cabbage is well cooked, feeling the core. Cool in water and ice. Open the bag and drain the cabbage, taking care to pat it well.
1 G POTATO STARCH SALT TO TASTE
Reduce the marinade of the sencha tea by half in a small saucepan. Mix with the starch to obtain a sauce to accompany the dish. Season with salt.
Thoroughly rinse the green leaves of the leek. Dry them. Put them in a dryer at 115°F for one night. The next morning, blend very well with a blender until you get a raw powder. Sift.

Serve with syrah leaf.

A STROKE OF STYLE
For artist Logan Loiselle, combining fine painting with luxury fashion is a dream come true.
Logan Loiselle has gained a reputation for excellence in painting custom art on handbags, sneakers, trunks and wallets for brands like Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Salvatore Ferragamo. As the CEO of Luxury Creative, he’s designed bespoke pieces for countless celebrities. Here, he shares his journey to becoming an artist, his dream client, hopes for a presence in Beverly Hills and more.
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP AND WHAT WAS YOUR JOURNEY TO BECOMING AN ARTIST?
I’m originally from Dallas, Texas. My journey as an artist started at the young age of three years old. I began drawing dinosaurs with crayons on the walls of my mom's house, although once I learned that wasn’t pleasing in her eye,s I upgraded to paper and doodle boards. While drawing at daycare one day, the school noticed my art and decided to have it printed on the merchandise—tote bags and apparel. I see now that it was a premonition for what was to come much later in life.
YOUR CAREER IN THE LUXURY ART SPACE IS UNIQUE, TO SAY THE VERY LEAST. CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR WORK?
Combining art with luxury fashion is a dream. In a brief description, I paint custom art on designer goods, such as Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Chanel and other brands. Over the last six years, I’ve been an inhouse painter for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and
Salvatore Ferragamo. While working with brands, I decided to create a company—Luxury Creative— which offers services for anyone who wants quality art (that lasts) on their prized possessions.
DID YOU SET OUT TO DISRUPT THE LUXURY AND ARTS INDUSTRIES OR DID IT HAPPEN ORGANICALLY? WHO WAS YOUR FIRST CLIENT?
It happened completely organically. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles I was introduced to Dolce & Gabbana and began painting handbags on Rodeo Drive. About a year later, I had the honor of painting for the biggest fashion house in the world, Louis Vuitton. Not long into my partnership, I acquired my first client, Quavo from the rap group Migos.

ARTS & CULTURE
WHERE FIND YOUR INSPIRATION?
I draw inspiration from many things. Human connection and intellect, being in nature, the mysteries of our existence, the list goes on. Of course, I’m humbled by the master painters of our time like Michaelangelo, Da Vinci and the modern-day legends like Warhol and Basquiat.
WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE CLIENTS AND WHAT ARE SOME OF THE EXCITING PROJECTS YOU’VE WORKED ON OR ARE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW? ANY FUN STORIES ABOUT YOUR WORK?
That’s hard to say, I have so many amazing clients that come from all walks of life and I appreciate every single one of them. There’s a lovely lady named Debby who adores her Abyssinian cats, and over the last few years, I’ve painted about 15 or 20 Louis Vuitton items for her. I just finished a memorial piece for Tamber and Nat Berhe, two successful entrepreneurs. Nat Berhe had one of the best careers in the NFL as a safety.
Another piece I created was in honor of a man named Edward, an inventor who helped save the world during Covid with his invention of a certain type of breathing mask. I’m currently working on a Louis Vuitton Horizon suitcase and a Birkin bag for him, both of which will be among my most creative pieces yet. Stay tuned!
In the recent past, a few more recognizable names I’ve created works for are Post Malone, Alicia Keys
and Paris Hilton. I had a great experience with Post as we both have roots in Dallas and are Cowboys fans. He requested I paint the five Super Bowl trophies on one of his Louis Vuitton trunks and says he has it displayed above his fireplace in his home.
WHO IS YOUR DREAM CLIENT?
My dream clients would have to be the Kardashians. They are a great example of family values, do a lot for the community and have a strong presence in the world of fashion. I actually painted initials on a bag for Kris Jenner some years ago while working with Dolce & Gabbana.
THE AGENCY HAS A “RULEBOOK”—AND RULE #9 IS DARE TO DREAM. WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE AND WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR ANY ARTISTS OUT THERE WITH A DREAM TO CHASE?
A dream of mine is to have a storefront on Rodeo Drive, where people can come in to bring their bags and accessories or just watch the team of artists paint on luxury items, perhaps with a latte in hand. Also to expand Luxury Creative to other major cities around the world. But most importantly, while achieving that, I want to continue building lifelong relationships with clients. My advice to other artists in this line of work or who paint canvases: Focus on practicing your craft and give yourself time to grow your voice. Nothing worthwhile ever comes overnight. We are our greatest investments.

In certain living room spaces, an art collection or signature piece of furniture might call for the most attention. However, the need for a TV remains for game days and movie nights.

Our southernmost continent is also our least explored, with few people ever having the opportunity to explore its barren landscape. In fact, Antarctica is unique in several ways: It has no currency of its own, no foliage, trees, or bushes and no long-term residents—excluding the penguins and seals. What it lacks in diversity, however, it makes up for in adventure.
For those daring enough to take the plunge, there are ways to explore this capricious land in comfort and style aboard one of the most exclusive ships in the world. Intrigued? Welcome aboard the Seabourn Venture.
A pioneer among small-ship, ultra-luxury cruising, Seabourn specializes in curating once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences. The award-winning brand launched in 1988 and has prided itself on delivering lavish hospitality experiences ever since. Their intimate fleet of ships carries between 458 and 600 guests each, employs roughly one staff member per guest and boasts one of the highest space-per-guest ratios in the industry. The result is an elite, fullservice vacation to some of the rarest and unexplored corners of the world.

A virtually uninhabited polar desert that doubles as Earth's coldest, driest and windiest continent, Antarctica is simultaneously something to be revered and feared. It’s a place of beauty—a surreal landscape, icecovered and blindingly white, evoking a feeling of wonder and awe unlike anything else. Where does the ice end, and the sky begin?
This past year, Seabourn ushered in a new era of expedition travel with the launch of their latest ship, the Seabourn Venture. As the company’s first ultraluxe, purpose-built expedition ship, the vessel was created specifically for journeys into remote, hard-toreach destinations, including southeast Greenland, Nunavut and Antarctica.
Seabourn’s excursions echo the brand ethos and focus on bespoke, one-of-a-kind experiences. From up-close encounters with untamed wildlife to pulsepounding cliff explorations via Zodiac, kayak trips through picturesque fjords and submarine tours of shipwrecks, Seabourn’s adventures are designed
to educate, entertain and immerse. Perhaps most impressive is the Venture’s dedicated 26-person Expedition Team—comprised of highly regarded wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists—who provide guests with insights into the ecology and culture of the places visited. Whether it’s over breakfast before an excursion, on deck during scenic cruising or in the form of a more formal presentation, the experts are there to educate and entertain every step of the way.

Have fun and live large—and don’t worry, breakfast in bed is mandatory, so savor a slow morning with pastries and coffee delivered to your room. Whether you’re going from Paris to Prague, London to Budapest or Amsterdam to Venice, every day brings a new view and adventure. Belmond.com

A globally recognized icon of Turks and Caicos real estate, Triton is about to undergo a metamorphosis into an even more awe-inspiring architectural masterpiece. Already the signature estate of world-famous kiting destination Long Bay Beach, this income generating luxury vacation rental is undergoing renovation and expansion from the existing 7 bed 8 bath main house to include four guest bungalows and a staff quarters, which will make it the only 14 bedroom fully staffed villa on the street and a rarity in the Turks and Caicos short-term rental landscape.
Featured in The Wall Street Journal, Luxury Travel Magazine, and People Magazine to name but a few, and of course the real star of the recent ‘Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip’ TV Show, Triton has played host to numerous celebrities since completed construction in 2017. The open concept encourages indoor/outdoor living and the pocket doors in the main entertaining area offer breath-taking view of the island’s famous turquoise waters.
Triton is also an entertainment lover’s dream. In-room televisions and an outdoor cinema allow visitors to enjoy all their favourite shows and movies. And for those hoping to host, the architecture of the property facilitates large social gatherings set between two dining areas. Two beach decks frame a large ocean view terrace, flanked with beach chairs, outdoor couches, hanging chairs, and even a fire pit.

On-site tennis court and gymnasium provides fitness release; all nestled on 2+ acres with a 155+ linear frontage of powder sand and mesmerizing views of the Caicos Banks.
