WHAT’S NEW IN ART, ARCHITECTURE, AND DESIGN CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPES, PARTY BARNS, AND BESPOKE HOME COCKTAIL BARS ARE ALL THE RAGE

painters are telling stories that reach far beyond stars, sky, and Lsea;andscape backyard barns are playing host to elaborate get-togethers; and custom cocktail bars are serving drinks in style at home. Here are the latest trends in art, architecture, and design.

Bennett’s inspiration, for the most part, comes from her own life and observations, including things she has read and watched. “The scenes usually percolate in my imagination,” she says. She’s more interested in depicting a scene that makes viewers wonder than in painting a setting purely for its aesthetic appeal.

ART

In the hands of contemporary artists, landscapes—which for centuries have served as voyeuristic travelogues of exotic locales—are pushing traditional boundaries. From edgy scenes to outright abstractions, these new works have become settings for imaginative interpretations and narratives that allow viewers to see the world in a vastly different way. Amy Bennett, whose studio is in Cold Spring, N.Y., sees herself as an omniscient narrator, an explorer not of the geographic terrain but of inner themes such as “isolation, family, time, and the difficulty of knowing and relating to one another.” Her works, which she says offer a “God’s eye view,” start with a realistic miniature 3-D model that serves as a still life as well as a stage set. For Small Changes Every Day, a 48-inch by 60-inch agrarian-themed oil painting, she created an eight-squarefoot model that ultimately featured over 500 structures that she cut out of wood and painted by hand. The models, which she often takes apart so she can reuse pieces for future works, allow her to control everything from lighting and poses to colors and to remove walls and “peer into places I don’t belong.”

The trend for party barns, Glick adds, took off in high gear when people were forced to stay home during the pandemic. “Typically, they are a labor of love for the owners,” he says. “And we end up being invited to the first big event, which is always fun.” DESIGN

ARCHITECTURE

Bespoke backyard barns, which are being built to host big events as well as private parties in primary residences, are expanding the concept and physical boundaries of the traditional family room. “They serve multiple uses,” says Daniel K. Glick, founder and partner of B&D Builders, an award-winning barnbuilding company based in Paradise, Pa. “People are drawn to spending time in a barn structure because of the inherent feelings of comfort and relaxation the atmosphere naturally provides.” He notes that the company’s barns, which typically are made of Douglas fir, include accent beams, wall paneling, and furniture crafted from reclaimed wood. They also feature hand-forged hardware, and are used for everything from largescale charity events to family reunions and weddings to yoga studios, basketball and tennis courts, and art studios. In some cases, existing barns are renovated. For a private historic estate in Chester Springs, Pa., B&D Builders was commissioned to reimagine a working barn as an events space that features heated floors, a full kitchen, restrooms fashioned out of old horse stalls, a guest suite, a bar, several seating areas, and fireplaces.

Sophisticated and glamorous, the bespoke cocktail bar has taken up residence in the private abode. “Clients want the option to entertain more from home without forgoing the fun or luxury of a night out,” says Emma Green, whose namesake interior design firm is based in London. “They are using them to reward themselves with a drink at the end of a stressful day or busy week and as a reason to have their guests in their best room, which is often the living room, and to create something of a spectacle.” The cocktail bars offer sparkle power to new and old homes alike. Outfitted with illuminated mirrors and glass shelves that showcase glittering collections of cut-crystal bottles and drinks glasses, they are comfortably inhabiting alcoves, including those on each side of the fireplace, and hallways adjacent to public rooms. “I tend to design the bars to be a feature in themselves,” Green says. “Who wants to hide a gorgeous cocktail cabinet away?” Called into action for before-dinner aperitifs and after-dinner cocktails, they often feature a refrigerator/freezer that promptly produces ice cubes as well as a small sink for washing all those lemons.

up in every home. With postmodern properties, however, knowing exactly what to expect from these homes isn’t quite so straightforward. As the name implies, postmodern architecture emerged as a response to the rigid standards of 20th-century modernism. “The clue is in the name, ‘postmodernism,’” says Owen Hopkins, director of the Farrell Centre at Newcastle University and author of the 2020 book, Postmodern Architecture: Less is a Bore. “It defined itself against modernism and the architectural orthodoxy that held sway for the previous 50 years.” “If modernism was about form over function, antidecoration, and distilling architecture to some kind of platonic ideal, postmodernism was its antithesis,” Hopkins adds. “It was about re-engaging in the modern world and pop culture, and a revival of ornaments, meaning, symbolism, color, and references to create a sort of culturally aware form of architecture that reflected this new spirit of the 1970s and particularly the ’80s.”

This Miami Beach, Fla., postmodern-style home, shown at top and bottom right, has many artistic flourishes throughout and was designed in 2017 by architect Rene Gonzalez.

How this sensibility shows up in practice can vary significantly from architect to architect and building to building, with postmodern features ranging from bright pastel colors to unorthodox shapes to overtly humorous touches, such as the giant sculpture of binoculars by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen over the entrance of a 1991 Frank Gehrydesigned office building in Los Angeles. A willingness to mix and match different architectural styles and eras is another hallmark of postmodern design. “Postmodernism was really a reaction to the modernist style, which was very stripped down and minimalist and didn’t have historical features that had been in architecture for hundreds of years,” says Andrew Wolfram, AIA, a principal at San Francisco-based architecture firm TEF Design. “With postmodernism, architects were looking at how to bring back cultural references and references to our past. Different architects approached it in very different ways—some used exaggerated classical columns or other features, some did it in a more subtle, ‘inside joke’ kind of way.” “The biggest thing about postmodernism,” Wolfram adds, “is the eclecticism of the ideas that were introduced, these little clues that would tell you that architecture has this long history. Maybe we’ll have some Gothic arches, but we’re still using modern materials.” While many of the most well-known and eye-popping examples of postmodern design are found in commercial architecture such as office towers and museums, the movement spread into the world of residential homes, as well, and is often manifested as a balance between modern and more classic touches. 10


“[Architect] Robert A.M. Stern was probably one of the biggest proponents of residential postmodernism,” Wolfram says. “His work [in this period] was postmodern and very classical, sometimes in a very literal way where you couldn’t tell if this building was built recently or 150 years ago.”

Kimberly Cammarata of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty says postmoderns are popular in the tony Hamptons communities “and a lot of people prefer postmodern versus a straight-up modern property.” The reason is largely because the houses feel warmer than their

modern counterparts, and people like the pitched roofs (as opposed to the more contemporary flat versions), as well as wooden floors and natural textures that feature in many of them. A current listing in Miami Beach, Fla., serves as further proof of just how dramatically homes that are considered postmodern can vary. The three-bedroom, $15.15 million property was built in 2017 by architect Rene Gonzalez and blends a mix of modern design with organic touches and extensive landscaping. “Rene designed something very unique,” says agent Anna Sherrill of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. “He had a lot of freedom to be very artistic and go where he wanted to with the design. The house is on stilts and literally raised, and has beautiful stairs custom-made in Milan that can be raised or lowered, so it’s very private.” The home also features a variety of unique and custom art pieces hand selected by Gonzalez, as well as landscaping by Mauricio Del Valle. “There are banana trees and a lot of plants that are native to Florida, and different plants [throughout the property], and a lot of space upstairs where all the natural elements can kind of flow through [the layout] ” Sherrill says. “[Downstairs] there’s this beautiful area with rocks, shells, and plants, and all of that is to absorb water if there’s rain. It’s very environmentally conscious in that way.” Postmodernism’s peak may have petered out over the course of the 1990s, but the era’s influence is still felt well into the 21st century. “The original postmodernism kind of burned out because of commercial forces in the 1980s and ’90s, but there’s sort of a revival now of architects looking at it as a model to follow to make architecture that is meaningful in the present,” Hopkins says. “More broadly, there are architects who, even if they’re not postmodernist, are at least looking at some of its design tactics and deploying them in buildings today.”

Natural and modern touches combine to make for a postmodern feel in homes, like this one in British Columbia, Canada.

EUROPE

Dating back to 1911, Harry’s New York Bar—one of Europe’s oldest cocktail bars and the birthplace of classics such as the Bloody Mary, French 75, and Sidecar—has long been the quintessential home away from home for members of the global art and literary worlds visiting Paris. The family-owned bar has opened a second location in Cannes’ chic Port Canto, delighting stylish French Riviera crowds by serving classic, Cuban-accented cocktails (Daiquiris, blended frozen drinks, juleps), on a spacious waterfront terrace. Led by the internationally known mixologists Simone Caporale and Marc Álvarez, Sips is looking to disrupt Barcelona’s cocktail scene with an ambitious approach blending the artistry of classic cocktails with the latest technology and trends. A masticator machine is used to mix aromas and ingredients with surprising results—an espresso martini features “coffee air” whipped with frankincense—and glass artists were commissioned to design specific vessels for each cocktail. Defying the limits of a conventional cocktail experience, Caporale and Álvarez chose not to incorporate a physical bar as a central element, eliminating barriers between guests and the bartenders. One of Paris’ hottest new drinking dens can be found near the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe, hidden behind a secret door in the newly refurbished Hotel Barrière Le Fouquet’s. Le Marta Paris offers a sexy atmosphere for delicious designer drinks, and its upstairs offshoot, Le Rooftop Marta, comes alive in summer with orange trees and Italian nibbles.

The Aubrey Main Bar and Drawing Room, shown above, is one of several spaces dedicated to libations in the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong.

The NoMad Hotel—one of New York City’s most decorated cocktail addresses—has opened its first international property in a historic building in the heart of London’s bustling Covent Garden. Set in the glass-ceilinged atrium, the restaurant’s cocktail list juxtaposes traditional drinks with NoMad favorites and a new selection of concoctions focused on the seasonality of London. Also drawing crowds is Side Hustle, NoMad’s take on a classic British pub that’s housed in the building’s former police station. U.S.

Manhattan’s Dante, a welcoming haunt serving fine cocktails in an updated, historic Greenwich Village setting, has earned accolades. Now, the Australian couple behind Dante, Linden Pride and Nathalie Hudson, have opened their first offshoot, Dante West Village a few blocks away. Set on the picturesque corner of Hudson and Perry streets, the mint-colored space features a handcarved marble bar, with green velvet banquets, vintage lighting, and bespoke wallpaper. The Italian-accented list 14

of libations includes Instagram-ready aperitivos and martinis served in elegant glassware to trendy spritzes and letter-perfect negronis. Located in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights, Bar Goto Niban is Kenta Goto’s second venture after the success of his Lower East Side cocktail bar, Bar Goto. The more spacious outpost (niban means “second” in Japanese) follows in the footsteps of the original—a winner of Bon Appétit’s “Bar of the Year”—by placing a focus on Goto’s Japanese-inspired drinks. The handsome space features walnut paneling and a gorgeous Japanese garden landscape spanning nearly 40 feet behind the bar, to sip on a meticulously crafted yuzu hot toddy, sakura (cherry blossom) martini, or oolong Sazerac, and a notable assortment of Japanese sake and shochu is offered. Los Angeles’ hottest new spot for next-level cocktails is a New York City import, and a notable one at that. Death & Co, one of the most influential and creative cocktail bars of this century, has opened its first West Coast outpost

in Downtown L.A.’s buzzing Arts District. As with the original New York location, the diminutive, dimly lit spot doesn’t take reservations. ASIA

Perched on the 25th floor of the Mandarin Oriental’s flagship Hong Kong property, The Aubrey features three different bar experiences in which guests enjoy Japanese craft cocktails, whiskeys, and cuisine. Part of the allure is the decor, which was designed to resemble the home of a 19th-century European art collector. A global mix of hotel guests and smartly dressed locals choose from the main bar, serving chuhai (shochu) cocktails, highballs, and new creations inspired by chess pieces and the history of chess; a Champagne and sake bar with oysters; and a four-person omakase cocktail bar where guests are taken on a unique journey with Japanese spirits, flavors, and textures.

destinations. The cocktail lounge’s commitment to innovation and exploration permeated its debut menu, “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow,” which celebrated six staple ingredients with uncertain futures: honey, cacao, vanilla, coffee, rice, and apple. Ingredients such as local honey and single-origin Malaysian cacao have been carefully sourced, and collaborations are being planned with producers and thought leaders in the global spirits industry. The first collaboration, a gin created with the award-winning Australian distillery Never Never Distilling Co., is currently being poured at the bar. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the venue’s main feature, a stunning central bar with views of Victoria Harbour. The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore’s newest drinking haunt, Republic Bar, can be found in the hotel’s newly refurbished east wing, which was designed by New York City’s tonychi studio. Inspired by the 1960s, the extensive cocktail menu is devoted to a narrative of historical and cultural

anecdotes originating from Singapore, the United Kingdom, Italy, and the U.S. There’s also a selection of 1960s-era spirits and cocktails, and this being the Ritz, an opulent, British-inspired afternoon tea experience is hosted daily. Set in Bangkok’s new, ultraluxe Four Seasons Hotel at Chao Phraya River, BKK Social Club is the latest project for lauded bar manager Philip Bischoff. Designed by the New York City-based firm AvroKO, the attractive space transports a well-dressed mix of locals and visitors to Buenos Aires, as Bischoff and his team have infused Argentinianinspired offerings with Thai flourishes.

AUSTRALIA

The team behind Maybe Sammy, one of the most decorated Australian cocktail destinations to have debuted in recent years, has opened Sammy Junior a short walk away in Sydney’s central business district. The suave sibling, which starts out on weekdays as an espresso bar with bespoke coffee blends and classic breakfast bites, transforms into a cozy cocktail destination in the afternoons, most notably on Fridays after work, when live jazz is the highlight. Smooth bottled cocktails include a jasmine negroni and eucalyptus gimlet, offered in mini and large sizes.

RATTAN MOVES BEYOND THE BEACH HOUSE be incorporated into styles from traditional to contemporary, Kemble says. “There is a reason we continue to see it even as styles and design preferences change over time,” says Carleton Varney, president of Dorothy Draper & Co. in Palm Beach, Fla. “It really is classic and, not to mention, very durable,” he says. The most important thing is finding quality pieces. The material is beloved for its relaxed feel, says Phillip Thomas, founder and principal of Phillip Thomas Inc. in New York. “I’m always impressed with the artistry of how it can be woven into beautiful, sometimes sculptural pieces,” he says. “Rattan can be at home anywhere from a porch at a seaside retreat in California to a bedroom in a more formal New York City apartment.” And it’s a kind of furnishing you can be proud to purchase. “When it’s harvested, it grows back very quickly,” says Mary Patton of Mary Patton Design in Houston. “This makes it eco-friendly— and you can feel good knowing your furniture does not contribute to deforestation,” she says. CONSIDER THE UNEXPECTED

THE LIGHT, NATURAL MATERIAL CAN ADD SCULPTURAL INTEREST TO ANY HOME

Celerie Kemble outfitted a room, shown above, with a collection of rattan furniture she designed for Arteriors.

here’s a reason rattan immediately evokes a faraway feel. It comes from more than 600 different species of climbing T vines native to tropical regions including Indonesia, Southeast Asia, the Philippines, Malaysia, and China. Rattan furnishings have often been reserved for vacation homes or relegated to patio areas. But people are realizing their textural beauty is not limited to island life or for outdoor seating. The material lends warmth and depth and a singular sense of eclectic beauty anywhere in the home. “Rattan is a light-hearted, natural material that often adds sculptural interest to a space as it’s crafted to easily bend and curve and can be woven into a wide variety of shapes and patterns,” says Celerie Kemble, principal of Kemble Interiors in New York; Palm Beach, Fla.; and London. “We’re seeing more homeowners bring rattan indoors,” she says. Whether used to craft furniture, lighting, or tabletop accessories, rattan provides warmth and lush texture. It can

The beauty of rattan lies in its versatility. It can be mixed with other materials and iterated in surprising ways. Kemble recently designed a coffee table for Arteriors using clear acrylic and rattan. “The contrast of the natural material with the visibility of the more technical material is just stunning,” Kemble says. Because rattan is so light, it makes for great accent and accessory pieces such as bar carts, stackable chairs, and floor lamps, she adds. Jennifer Hunter of Jennifer Hunter Design in New York prefers using rattan in lighting applications. “We love the way light shines through the material and casts warm and glowing shadows,” she says. Additionally, she incorporates it through accent pieces including side tables, baskets, and picture frames.

Other novel uses include chandeliers, shelving, and kitchenware. And the look and feel provides an interesting contrast against prints— particularly wallpaper. “Rattan is a beautiful complement to many different patterns, especially those that are tropically inspired or chinoiserie,” Varney says. He also loves the “elegant and elevated” look of a rattan headboard. And since it comes in many finishes you can opt for darker or lighter shades. MIX AND MATCH

Rattan is the type of material that can be melded into any space, with an eye toward balance. For example, a rattan sideboard can be used to soften a dining room that has more traditional or formal pieces. “A simple, traditional piece mixed with a more elaborate, sculptural rattan piece can bring the perfect synergy into a room,” Thomas says. “Pairing rattan with some contem-

porary and structured elements will help make any design more elevated and well-rounded,” says Lindye Galloway, founder and chief creative officer of Lindye Galloway Studio + Shop in Orange County, Calif. For example, Patton has a rattan coffee table in her formal living space. “It makes the dressy, formal furniture and rug feel younger and the room more relaxed,” she says. Another way to balance the look is through textiles. “I like to introduce opposing textures like silk or velvet along with more refined pieces of upholstery to break up the look,” says Jessica Davis, owner and principal designer of JL Design in Nashville. She suggests pairing a velvet sofa with a pair of rattan chairs with velvet accent pillows, for example. BE STRATEGIC

Most designers recommend using

restraint for year-round seasonality and livability. “If you overuse rattan, it can bring about a dated look,” Galloway says. “Sticking to key pieces in your space helps lead the eye throughout the room. She suggests using a few items, such as chairs or pendant light fixtures, as a focal point. Or showcase just one large rattan item (a cabinet, dining table, sofa) and add woven accessories around the room to create depth. The wonder of this material is its ability to live anywhere and transcend time. A singular rattan element simply feels like it belongs. “I have long been inspired by how notable French designers from the 1940s incorporated rattan into their repertoire. The most utilitarian pieces were treated as works of art,” Thomas says. “Think of the simple rattan chair tucked up against beautiful marble counters and tables in French cafes. This look has been adopted into so many fabulous kitchens of today.”

HIGH DESIGN A CEILING SHOULD BE THOUGHT OF AS A FIFTH WALL many interiors, the ceiling is an afteror last priority among a launIdrynthought, list of needed decor improvements. But letting this fifth wall simply blend with the rest of your environs leaves so much inspiration on the table. “Ceilings are an opportunity to bring in other design elements,” says Amy Vroom, owner of The Residency Bureau design studio in Seattle. Ceilings can create the illusion of space, producing a sense of scale, drama, or even intimacy, says Rupert Martineau, senior associate and project head of residential interiors at SHH in London. “The ceiling height in relation to the width and depth of the room

18

is one of the most critical elements regarding the proportion of the room,” he says. “How the ceiling is detailed can greatly enhance this sense of proportion and aid the distribution of light throughout the space.” CONSIDER THE DESIGN

There are many different ways of treating a ceiling—from a simple, modern flat plane to classical vaulted arches, Martineau says. “In each case there needs to be consistency with the general narrative of the building, its history, and function, and reference materiality and finish,” he says. All the elements have to work

together intentionally to make a room feel cohesive, according to Miriam Silver Verga and Hillary Kaplan, principal designers of Mimi & Hill Design in Westfield, N.J. For example, a super bright white painted ceiling sharply contrasted with colored or wallpapered walls can quickly shrink a room and divide a space. High, vaulted ceilings can create complicated geometry if they are not designed well, Verga and Kaplan say. Finding a common thread between the ceiling and the rest of the space creates cohesion. For example, if you have molding on your walls, you could continue that same molding on your ceiling, Vroom says. “If you’re designing


RESIDE SUMMER 2022

a den, you could drop the ceiling around the perimeter of the room and add lighting to create an ambience that connects with the mood of that space.”

ADD AN ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENT

Some architectural ceiling elements can be added as adornments, much like jewelry. Verga and Kaplan love coffered ceilings as they add depth, interest, and geometry. “Interestingly, the Romans invented them to reduce the weight of stone ceilings in ancient buildings and domes like the Pantheon but they were later adopted by the French and English in manor homes as ornate decoration,” they say. “We love the cleaner, more modern versions, which can create drama and allow for an exciting mix of materials and textures.” What’s more, a coffered ceiling becomes a focal point, drawing the eye upward. Wood beams are another way to add detail, geometry, various planes, and textures to ceilings, Verga and Kaplan say. “They are perfect for A-shaped or vaulted ceilings and can be a dramatic element when done well.” But the duo caution against using beams that are too skinny, which can end up looking illproportioned. And make sure the ceiling is high enough to accommodate them. “The last thing you want to do is take away more of the usable height with unnecessary details,” they say. In a farmhouse kitchen Vroom is designing with ceilings that are more than 10 feet high, she’s adding distressed beams “to break up the height, allowing us to layer in another element of patina to tie into the rest of the design.” In a more modern space with vaulted ceilings, Vroom suggests combating a cavernous feel with walnut wood panels to give the space warmth.

from below can help create the illusion of height, as can using high gloss or a lacquered finish. “The reflected light brightens and enlarges the space,” Verga and Kaplan say. The two also love handpainted ceilings, which add interest. For one project, they hired a decorative painter to recreate a marbled wallpaper as a ceiling mural. “It’s magnificent, timeless, and adds details, pattern, subtle color, and an overall visual flow to the room,” they say. The finish of the paint is crucial. “Flat paint isn’t always the best go-to. Ceilings can always benefit from some high gloss for reflectivity,” they say. Keep in mind, paint colors on the ceiling rarely look the same as the walls if you’re trying to match the two, Vroom says. They usually look darker on the ceiling due to the horizontal plane. “If you’re trying to have the ceiling match the walls, select a paint

chip lighter than your wall color to get a more consistent color,” she says. IN FAVOR OF FLOURISHES

Sometimes, thinking beyond the scope of what’s already possible can produce a more inspired design. For a recent condo project, Vroom converted a space with stark white walls into a cozy retreat by adding a botanical wallpaper on the ceiling. “It created an English country home in a bustling urban center,” Vroom says. The use of tiles can be fun, especially if they are lightweight formed metal panels or colorful ceramics in domed or arched ceilings, Verga and Kaplan say. They also utilize wallpaper to produce dramatic effect. “We also love to add wood panels to ceilings as a textural highlight, especially for smaller ceilings, to highlight a light fixture or a seating area,” Verga and Kaplan say.

PAINT MAKES PERFECT

Paint color and finish can have a profound effect on the look and feel of a space. “Paint colors are critical and should be coordinated with the walls and lighting,” Martineau says. For example, if the ceiling is dark, the room will feel lower. Yet, in some cases, providing a polished finish can increase the sense that the ceiling extends beyond its actual limit, Martineau says.

mindful, empowered philosophy. And she brings that same intention to her roles. Whether you know her as Dr. Nya Wallace, the professor on And Just Like That or Mia Jordan, a no-nonsense producer on The Morning Show, her characters are never predictable and always multilayered. “They’re very complicated women,” she says. “They’re all very accomplished in a way that’s very late 20th century, early 21st century, African-American woman.” The same can be said of her latest character. This August, Pittman takes the lead in Hallmark’s Unthinkably Good Things, as a woman confronting life’s crossroads while surrounded by her best friends in Tuscany. But, back to her spectacular home, which she designed with a childhood friend. “We decided early on that we were just going to fill the house with things that I really love,” she says. Here are her five favorite—and most inspiring—items.

MEXICAN ARTIFACTS (NOT PICTURED)

Another multicultural moment is evident in Pittman’s Mexican skull and antique wood box, both of which she got in Cabo San Lucas, one of her favorite places to unwind. “I feel quite spiritually connected to Mexico in a way that is really beyond me,” she says. The aesthetic adds another dimension to her decorating. “They’re just beautiful pieces that I’ve picked up and they remind me of going to a place where I feel really safe and at home and at peace,” she says.

HANDMADE GHANAIAN BOWL

MEDITATION GARDEN

INDIAN BONE INLAY DRESSER AND MIRROR

This Etsy find comes with a personal story. “The mirror was one of the first items that my ex-husband and I bought together, and when we went our separate ways, he got the mirror,” she explains. Since then, the couple, who share a son, have become good friends, and the piece made its way back to her. “He’s an extraordinary gift to me in my life,” she says. Sharing the mirror is a testament to their bond. “It’s an object from my personal history with him that I really cherish. It’s a thing that we both love, and he had it for years and now I get to hold on to it for a while.” 20

FRAMED BARACK OBAMA ARTICLE

“Listen, you are not a Black American if you don’t have a picture of Barack Obama in your house,” Pittman says. “No, I’m just kidding, you probably are.” The actress took the historic front page of the newspaper to a frame store in L.A. to do it justice. “I have it in my house because it reflects my eternal hope for change,” she says. “As an actor and as an artist, you need reflections of optimism and endurance around you. This piece makes me feel very, very much like an American.”

Pittman, who practices Buddhism, worked to perfect this space with her friend, Martin Flores, who did the landscaping. “I always go out there when there’s a big decision to be made,” the actress says. The garden grew extra lush over the pandemic. “I had gone to New York to do And Just Like That, and when I came back to L.A., after several months of being away, it had really bloomed.” It’s not only pretty, but a true respite. “In parts of Eastern culture, there is something called, a quiet room or a one room, where everyone goes for quiet or to read, and where no bickering and arguing or any of that is allowed.”

Pittman picked up the bowl at a local store not far from the neighborhood Issa Rae explores in the TV series Insecure, which is also her own. “I just loved it. I love the store. It’s owned by a Black woman and she knows all of the details of the items, and exactly where they come from.” And while it’s lovely to look at, of course, the provenance really drew Pittman in. “There are lots of other things in my home that have an ethnic history,” she notes. “This house is an amalgam of cultures, but I definitely wanted to include something that was a part of this neighborhood that’s so rich in Black American culture.”

the nerves, the excitement, the chaos. dean: We did one video show. It was almost the same amount of work and money, with much less reward. dan: There’s something magical about a live fashion show, and the energy of the room.

Brothers Dean and Dan Caten, shown from left to right, founded Dsquared2.

For your spring line, you had grunge on the brain. dan: Spring was like a great hanging

Lean, chiseled, and perennially tan, the Catens, 57, have made an art form of living, working, and playing together.

A stream of celebrity fans followed, from Lenny Kravitz to Christina Aguilera and Rihanna. Known for extravagant runway shows, the brothers found it tough to scale back during the pandemic.

We created the “honey fit,” which is for voluptuous beautiful girls. dean: It’s almost a sexier version of our regular line. These girls are proud of their curves. Let’s jump back to 1991, when you decided to move to Milan. Why there, and not London, Paris, L.A., New York? dan: While working for Ports, we

spent time in Italy visiting fabric mills. Somehow there was a connection. Our father’s Italian. We felt really at home here. We liked the food, the people. So we chose to start our company here. Our father came to Canada to start his life and we kind of closed the circle by coming back to Italy to start ours.


Did you speak Italian? dan: No. Which was another obstacle.

But it was a good thing. We could’ve taken a bus to New York. It’s not so far, and if we failed we could just go home. That was too easy. A lot of people said we were crazy. We said, no, we need to do this.

And now where’s home? dan: We’re living in Cyprus. We bought

a cute historical house in town, which we’re renovating. For now we’re in a little bungalow on the beach, and made a small studio.

dan: But the next place is the kitchen. It’s active, with smells from cooking. It’s full of good energy. You can read or look through work at the kitchen table, with a coffee or tea. We sit at a banquette and look out. Very cafe style. It’s sunny and always hot. On the beach we run in the morning first thing. A friend of ours does yoga on paddleboards. We say hello to people. dean: It’s a real community. dan: Then we’ll run down to a little coffee shop on the beach and have breakfast. It’s a great change of pace. Rather than rush, run, five million people. [He chuckles.] It’s very, very relaxing.

The designers created a spring line that was equal parts “grungy” and “poetic.”

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN IS POSSIBLE BUT IT TAKES A LITTLE EFFORT, SAYS SAN FRANCISCO - BASED INTERIOR DESIGNER NOZ NOZAWA

24

oz Nozawa never thought she’d be passionate about antiques. NWhen the San Francisco designer

bought her first home in 2010, her style was firmly rooted in Mid-Century Modern. And since 2014, when she career-hopped from marketing to the world of interiors, she has honed a maximalist aesthetic—big, bright, bold. So color her surprised at the way old footstools—she now has a collection—and other French antiques have resonated with her over the years. “It’s totally weird that in this modern boxy condo where I live, the most visible piece of furniture in my bay window is this 19th-century gilded, hand-carved French settee that I re-covered in a denim fabric from Zak+Fox,” Nozawa, 35, says. It’s not a choice she envisioned a decade or so ago. The interest and appeal came on slowly, over time. That same kind of open-mindedness and easy-does-it pace is what Nozawa preaches when it comes to sustainable design. She’ll be the first to admit: Sustainability is tough to pull off in the design world. Despite her own efforts to make environmentally responsible choices, much of what she sources for clients still needs to be shipped a long distance, which isn’t great for anybody’s carbon footprint. Most clients think it’s all about the products—bamboo floors, say, over oak. But the sustainability quotient of bamboo diminishes considerably if it has to be shipped from halfway across the world. Sustainable design is more than a magic set of materials. It’s a mind-set. Here are her tips for putting that mind-set to work.

THINK FIRST (ABOUT YOUR CONSUMPTION), BUY LATER

The greenest step a home enthusiast can take is the first one—to be mindful of the steps to come, and realize your choices can and will make a difference. For example, if you buy something— whether it’s a hammock or a Herman Miller sectional—knowing you’ll only have it for a few years and toss it, then it doesn’t really matter how eco-friendly its materials are. THIS GOES FOR HOMES, TOO

If you care about the environment,

Designer Noz Nozawa at home in San Francisco.

Nozawa says, but find yourself drawn to a house that was remodeled five years ago, and you hate the renovation and plan to redo it, that’s a sign that you need to rethink. Renovations use up natural resources. Buy a house you won’t change as much, she suggests. Or find a fixerupper and save it from the bulldozer. This may mean living in the midst of your renovation for a time, with some rooms redone, some unfinished, some empty. “It’s a huge ask,” she admits. But a commitment to sustainability often requires accepting a certain level of inconvenience. INVEST LOCALLY

If the latest supply-chain issues have taught us anything, it’s that a sofa upholstered one town over is worth 10 (or pick your figure) in a container ship. “Our clients are proud of the number of local makers we work with,” Nozawa says. Look around, she advises. Perhaps you live in an area with great woodworkers, or upholsterers. Besides being more sustainable, supporting local artisans helps your overall community, and makes each item feel more special. “And nothing comes damaged or in a huge box,” she adds. PLAY THE WAITING GAME

If you have to purchase items from a distance, try to resist the urge to get them here faster.

She calls herself old-fashioned, preferring to buy items in actual stores, rather than online, where the “express shipping” button is so seductive. The faster something comes to you, she notes, the more likely it is that every part of the process—from production, to the extra packaging needed to ship it, to the pollution churned out by air transport—has a harsher impact than buying something locally and with a slower delivery rate. SPEND MORE, CARE MORE, ENJOY LONGER

While construction and renovation are, in essence, consumptive, when done right they needn’t be wasteful, she explains. High-quality goods tend to last longer, and caring for them will only extend their lifetime. The same can be said for life’s creature comforts—objects and spaces designed purely for beauty or pleasure. If that creature comfort brings you joy, if it keeps you happy and settled in one place, instead of roaming to the next home, the next renovation, then the purchase—no matter the price, or the materials, for that matter—was likely well worth it. Like Nozawa’s bay-window settee. “My husband takes naps on it, my dog uses it to stand on and bark at other dogs on the sidewalk. It’s the best.” And it looks much better there than in a landfill. 25

EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED SEEING THE LIGHT JUST RIGHT TAKES SOME BRIGHT IDEATION

utdoor lighting is a little like magic. It can create drama, cast a warm O glow, shed a spotlight on landscaping,

or highlight an area of interest. “People overlook that outdoor lighting can add so much personality to a property while enhancing curb appeal, increasing safety, and providing those small, intentional touches that make a house a home,” says Kaitlin Dennis, category manager for lighting at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery in Virginia. “Adding illumination to the exterior of a structure dramatically defines architectural volume, shape, and textural interest,” says Robert Sonneman, chief creative officer and founder of Sonneman—A Way of Light, in Larchmont, N.Y. “When we set out to study an approach to exterior lighting, we consider the architectural context of the object as well as its functional performance,” he says. Lighting elevates a home’s curb appeal, draws attention to outdoor spaces, such as a garden or reflecting pool, and adds warmth to all that it shines on.

UNDERSTANDING LIGHTING TYPES

“When thinking about different types of lighting, you should always consider the elements you are highlighting and the goal,” says Roger Higgins, principal designer of R. Higgins Interiors in Nashville. Are you looking for drama or subtlety? Are you trying to draw attention to a certain architectural or landscaping detail, or light a path through the woods? “The task is question number one. You should also always consider where you are and be conscious of the surrounding environment,” he says. Uplighting typically uses spotlights that are angled upward to highlight specific structures. For this type of lighting, carefully select a focal point such as a tree or interesting shapes or textures, within the landscaping, to illuminate. Uplighting can also be used to accentuate the architectural elements of your 26

home, says Paige Gray, partner and lead designer at Parker & Harlow, a design firm in British Columbia, Canada. Downlighting, on the other hand, typically involves mounting a fixture onto a tall structure so that it lights the area beneath it. “Downlighting comes across as a bit more subtle and natural whereas uplighting can create more contrast,” Gray says. “Some of the most beautifully lit outdoor areas use a mix of both uplighting and downlighting,” she says. “Site or flood lamps should be the go-to for large areas that need to be well-lit,” Dennis says. Mounting them high on walls or posts offers the most illumination over a backyard or patio— or consider mounting them lower to provide direct, bright light in one specific spot, she says. And then there’s strand lighting, which can easily be installed between posts or hung from railings and rafters to create an inspired area. “Whether the backyard is a modern oasis or a country hideaway, a few rows of strand lighting can add ambience for homeowners and guests,” Dennis says. You want to “attach the lines to sturdy-gauge wiring for extra support. Doing this will prevent any sagging during inclement weather,” she says. THINKING ABOUT PLACEMENT

Higgins considers an outdoor space in the same way he does an interior—with layers of light. “I like outdoor lights hidden in a tree, for example, so that they can add a soft glow downward. It’s also important to put light at the human level, so that you have layers.” Sam McNally, co-founder and director at Echlin, a design and architecture studio in London, also prefers to layer lighting, such as natural, artificial, and even candle or fireside light as a final

flourish. “We opt for a mix of patio lights for an upward wash, angled spotlights for highlighting trees and architectural features, and wall lights for symmetry and drama,” he says. “When considering natural light, we think about the aspect the spaces we’re designing face, where sunrises and sunsets will occur, and the long nights of winter,” he says. The front entry is a prime place to create an inspired first impression. To achieve symmetry, balance the shape and size of the outdoor entryway light fixtures against the look of the door and the size of the front porch. Dennis suggests a single light centered over the front door, a high mounted light off to one side of the door, and two light fixtures—one on either side—to cover a larger area. Consider lanterns, wall sconces, and outdoor pendant lights or a chandelier, depending on your style.

entering, protecting their internal and electrical components,” Dennis says. Some lighting systems are qualified as marine grade, which means they are cleared for wet locations but are also sturdy enough to withstand the excess moisture and salt exposure of coastal conditions. Lighting rated for damp locations can be used in areas that don’t get much direct snow or rainfall. Aluminum is one of the most common materials used for outdoor lighting because it’s lightweight, easily customizable, and works well in many temperate climates, but it might have a shorter lifespan when exposed to nature’s rough-and-tumble ways, Dennis says. She suggests stainless steel as a sturdy alternative that can stand up to the elements while adding a bright, reflective shine. Brass or copper metals build up a unique patina while resisting corrosion and rust and can outlast even the strength of stainless steel over time, Dennis says. For those homeowners in coastal areas, look for galvanized steel or bronze fixtures. “These finishes will darken and mature, adding unique character to every piece, but they will retain their strength against heavy winds and snow,” Dennis says.

CONSIDERING BULBS AND WATTAGE

“The most popular types of outdoor lighting are sensors and low voltage LEDs,” Dennis says. “The lowest wattage recommended for outdoor furniture lightbulbs is 80 and under.” Today’s LED options are limitless. “They’ve been reimagined in the forms of panels that light broad areas and linear configurations that can light along the length of a landscape feature like a rock wall or a long hedge row in a continuous, luminous line,” Sonneman says. “The opportunities to paint a site with the light of color, shape, and controllability, have made exterior lighting an art form,” he says. WEAR AND TEAR

If light is installed anywhere that’s subject to the elements, it must be rated for a wet location. “These lamps are sealed and insulated to prevent water from 27

my handblown colored glass cake stands and stemware jewels for “Itheconsider table,” says Stephanie Summerson

Hall, the founder of the South Carolina-based Estelle Colored Glass. “They are statement pieces that are meant to be handed down as heirlooms.” Hall says their beauty lies in the fact that they are luxuries designed to make life more enjoyable whether you have a table full of holiday guests or are dining solo in the soft glow of candlelight. “Color universally makes people happy,” she says. “And color is what makes my pieces extraordinary.” Hall, a self-described serial entrepreneur who founded Ruth’s House Event Rentals and co-founded Wedding Flowers for Rent, started thinking about colors and colored glass when she built a new home. “I was looking for forever collections for it,” she says. “And colored glass pieces reminded me of my own upbringing.” That upbringing included going antiquing with her paternal grandmother, Estelle, in honor of whom the company is named. “We used to do day trips,” Hall says. “She was always adding to her colored glass collection, and she often used the pieces at Sunday dinners.” Estelle’s signature dessert—a madefrom-scratch vanilla pound cake served with a side of strawberry Jell-O topped with whipped cream—was displayed on a colored glass cake stand. “I spent five years developing designs,” Hall says. “The cake stand, which brings back so many family memories, was my original idea.”

She commissioned designs for it and for stemware from artisans at a more-than-a-century-old Polish glassmaking company, and by fall 2019 she debuted Estelle Colored Glass, whose products are sold in 225 shops around the U.S. “While the designs are modern and updated to fit into the contemporary home, they do remind me of gazing into Estelle’s china cabinet,” Hall says, adding that she’s been told by others that they bring back childhood memories. She keeps her own close to home: Estelle Colored Glass ships from a warehouse in Holly Hill, S.C., that’s five minutes from where she grew up and five minutes from where Estelle, affectionately also known as Big Mama, lived. Hall, who says she lives her life by the color wheel— swapping out winter’s rich jewel tones for spring and summer’s pastel home accents—is inspired in large part by haute couture. The petal-soft rose colorway in her company’s collection, for example, is inspired by a Gucci dress, and the luscious lavender hue is a nod to an elegantly delicate gown by Elie Saab. In March Estelle Colored Glass introduced Champagne flutes to the collection, and in late summer or early fall will add highball and lowball glasses as well as a vase. Although Hall doesn’t set a formal table all the time— she has four children under the age of 14 who have busy schedules—she does use her stemware to make each meal a festive occasion. “I look in my china cabinet and I may pull out a Champagne coupe even though I’m not drinking Champagne,” she says. “It brings in a few minutes of luxury in my everyday life.” When she has down time, she still loves looking for vintage treasures. “My children aren’t into antiquing—yet,” she says. “But when I go, I’m like a kid in a candy shop.” As far as the future of Estelle Colored Glass, Hall will continue to look to the past for direction. “I’ll keep creating beautiful things that tell stories and keep memories alive,” she says.

BEST FOOT FORWARD SUPERFAN -TURNED - CEO ANDREW ROBERTS BRINGS DEL TORO BACK TO ITS LUXURIOUS, ITALIAN ROOTS Del Toro’s Milano loafer is made with Italian leather.

30


Opposite page: Del Toro; this page, clockwise from top: Nomi Ellenson; Del Toro (2)

erendipitous: That’s what Del Toro superfan-turned-CEO Andrew Roberts calls the opportunity to purchase his S favorite shoe company. The New York-based entrepreneur first fell in love with Del Toro, known for its velvet slippers and classic loafers for men and women, at the brand’s Miami flagship in 2017 when he discovered a pair of well-made chukkas. It soon became his most beloved shoe brand, and he amassed quite the collection. So in 2019 when he heard through a friend that the company, founded in 2005 by Matthew Chevallard, was being put up for sale, he joined a group of investors (former co-workers and friends) and purchased it. It’s not every day that a customer takes the helm, but Roberts says it’s the customer-centric perspective that made him uniquely qualified for the job, as well as his roles at other direct-to-consumer companies in the apparel, baby product, and pharmaceuticals sector.

“I had a lot of confidence that the brand deserved to exist in the marketplace, which motivated me,” he says. “And ultimately, I felt sad if the brand were to go away. Consumer brands preach that the customer is always first, and no one is closer to the customer than I am.” In 2018 and 2019, Del Toro began moving into streetwear with sweatshirts and sweatpants, biker shorts, and other apparel, something Roberts didn’t agree with. His goal was to bring the focus back to Del Toro’s hero product: the velvet slipper. When he took charge, Roberts liquidated the apparel inventory and began the rebrand. However, his plans came to a halt when the pandemic hit in early 2020. “It forced us to get creative and think hard about product extensions that made sense and were consistent with the Italian branding of the company,” he says. Coincidentally, the pandemic sparked many new and successful ideas, including the House Slipper. As many weren’t going to weddings or events, Roberts used the brand’s credibility with the velvet tuxedo slipper and transformed it into a shoe for the home, with an ultrasoft and comfortable sole. “The House Slipper was a product born out of the pandemic and has exceeded all expectations,” he says. “Here’s a product that we thought would get us through the year, but now it’s become a core product, especially as work from home, for many, is here to stay. In addition to our classic black leather, we have several new colors and a shearling version. Customers even want to wear the house slippers outside.”

Del Toro has velvet slippers, loafers, dress shoes, wedding shoes, sneakers, and house slippers for men and velvet slippers, loafers, sneakers, and house slippers for women, ranging from $225 to $595. It also offers customization options, from initials to logos. Weddings are also a huge market for Del Toro, and the brand has select accessories, such as silk ties, velvet bow ties, and pocket squares to match. Del Toro’s shoes always were and continue to be made in Italy, specifically Naples and Milan, using Italian leather and materials (from the soles to the leather to the suede) and designed in collaboration with Italian artisans. Italian craftsmanship is the most important aspect of the shoes and every detail is perfected by Italian artisans and shoemakers who are continuing generations of traditions and techniques. It is also important to Roberts that each collection’s campaigns are photographed in Italy to drive home a sense of place for its customers. The brand’s shoes are understated, but are identified through red stitching at the heel or the “X” on the Milano loafer. “We’ve done a good job at incorporating brand details without having a logo in your face, which is not core to the Del Toro DNA,” Roberts says. “Our shoes have a subtle edginess, which I think our customers have come to expect.” Roberts is continuing founder Chevallard’s tradition of partnering with emerging artists in collaborations that have a philanthropic angle. For example, the brand released a limitededition chukka in collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist Alli Conrad and 25% of the profits will benefit the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. He is also experimenting with new materials, as seen in the Tennis Ball Felt Chukka made with Italian felt. (Proceeds for those go toward the Andy Roddick Foundation, which helps expand opportunities for young people in underserved communities.) “We’ll continue to experiment with new materials,” Roberts says. “We have a lot of credibility, of course, with velvet, leather, and suede, but I love the idea of working with materials like corduroy.”

Andrew Roberts, shown above, took over the helm at Del Toro, which is known for its luxe velvet slippers and classic loafers.

EXPLORER WATCHES VENTURE INTO NEW HOROLOGICAL TERRITORY

Opposite page: Montblanc; this page: Getty Images, Courtesy of Montblanc

hen Rolex updated its legendary Explorer and Explorer II models W last year, the brand expanded a legacy

that dates back to the 1930s, when it equipped early expeditions in the Himalayas to test how its watches performed under extreme conditions. Most famously, Rolex outfitted the 1953 expedition of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay that reached the summit of Mount Everest. To mark the milestone, the brand introduced the Explorer that same year. And in 1971, it followed up with Explorer II, which became the go-to watch for polar explorers, speleologists, and volcanologists. “A reliable and high-performing watch is an essential companion to any adventurer setting out on a major expedition,” said the Italian mountaineer, explorer, and author Reinhold Messner, at last year’s launch of the Montblanc 1858 Geosphere Messner Limited Edition ($6,500). The special edition of 262 pieces is the culmination of Messner’s long partnership with Montblanc and pays homage to his accomplishments and all the peaks over 26,200 feet that he ascended over the course of his career. His route, dubbed Messner’s List, is one of four approaches to the Seven Summits Challenge—climbing the highest peak on each of the seven continents. In 2018, Montblanc launched the 1858 Geosphere with a particularly novel way of displaying the world time complication—two turning domed discs representing the Northern and Southern hemispheres. In tribute to Messner, the 42mm bronze edition’s turning hemispheres are marked with red dots representing the Seven Summits. The caseback features an image of Mont Blanc, the complete Messner list, a compass, and two crossed ice axes, plus an engraving of Messner’s signature. Last fall, Vacheron Constantin unveiled two bold Everest editions of its sporty Overseas, each limited to 150 pieces. The 42.5mm Overseas Chronograph Everest ($37,000) and

the 41mm Overseas Dual Time Everest ($31,300) evolved from a special titanium-and-steel Overseas Dual Time produced for American explorer and photographer Cory Richards, who made his third ascent of Everest in 2019. Both models exhibit Overseas’ trademark six-sided notched bezel, a nod to the brand’s Maltese Cross emblem. Lightweight, robust titanium was used for the case, bezel, pushers, and pusher guards, while a grained-finish dark bluegray dial with orange hands is treated with Super-LumiNova for legibility after dark. Vacheron’s tool-free interchangeable strap system lets you change from the Cordura strap with orange contrast stitching to a gray rubber option on a whim. For almost 20 years, explorer Mike Horn has been a Panerai ambassador and collaborator. Among Horn’s accomplishments are a winter expedition to the North Pole, summiting some of the world’s highest and most challenging peaks without supplemental oxygen, and a sailing circumnavigation of the globe across every continent and ocean. Last fall, Panerai introduced its most recent Mike Horn special edition, the Submersible Chrono Flyback Mike Horn Edition dive watch ($20,500), limited to 500 pieces. Built to stand up to the rigors of a Horn expedition, the 47mm case is made of brushed titanium fitted with a black matte ceramic ring within the unidirectional bezel for keeping track of dive times and screw-down chronograph pushers for superior water resistance. The dark blue dial is punctuated with white applied indices and bright yellow central chronograph hands. Endowed with a three-day power reserve and water resistance down to about 300 meters, the piece is powered by the P.9100 movement, Panerai’s first automatic chronograph featuring a flyback function that lets you reset and restart the chrono timer with a single press on the pusher at 8 o’clock. Two straps—a blue rubber accordion strap and the new UPCamo bimaterial strap composed of rubber and a camouflage fabric inspired by Italian Navy uniforms—can be switched out. The watch and accessories are delivered in a presentation box made from recycled plastic. And for those loyal Panerai collectors who want to get in on the action and are willing to pay a significant upcharge, the brand’s Experience watches allow you to accompany Horn and other adventurers on a bucket-list expedition.

MAKING WAVES POOL DESIGNERS ARE THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, CREATING UNIQUE AND RESORT- STYLE OUTDOOR SWIM SPACES AT HOME By Iyna Bort Caruso

or some people, the most exotic spot is in their own backyard. Credit new trends in pool design that have made these watery retreats smarter, sleeker, and even a bit magical. “People are looking to their pools for an experience. It enhances and enriches their lives,” says Rick Pendleton, founder of Artisan Home Resorts, a luxury landscape design and pool firm headquartered in San Francisco. “It’s a distraction from all things we’ve been dealing with the last two years. It’s an escape, a sanctuary.” Pool designers are thinking outside the lap lanes to give homeowners a total backyard experience that is relaxing, refreshing, therapeutic, and entertaining. Sloped-entry pools evoke the beach, while pools with transparent walls or windows bring aquariums to mind. Think swimming in a giant fish tank. Pendleton says elevator pools “are catching on.” With just the push of a button, the patio floor lowers like an elevator and water streams in from all sides. This patio-to-pool transformation “is straight out of James Bond.” Pendleton also calls on the talents of his “imagination team” to create underwater worlds, both three-dimensional and projected. In the San Diego suburb of Rancho Santa Fe, the swimming pool in the backyard of a 10,085-square-foot estate “makes you feel like you’re in Italy,” says Linda Sansone of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty in Rancho Santa Fe. “The only thing missing is the gondola.” The residence (shown on page 36) is on a three-acre parcel, one of the few lots located right on a golf course and trail system in the prestigious community of The Covenant. Back doors open up to a massive zero -edge pool with a waterfall, spa, dipping pool, and even a grotto. Integration is a theme in contemporary design, whether it’s using glass or acrylic walls to blend a pool with its surroundings or merging a pool and spa with just a minimalist dam wall separating them for one seamless look. Another example of integration is the Baja shelf, also known as a sun shelf or tanning ledge. First popularized at resort hotels, it is a partially submerged level of the pool designed specifically for lounging. Chairs, tables, and umbrellas are set in shallow waters, typically up to a foot

deep, and are perfect for toe-danglers. Pool and poolside are one. Depending on the location, complexity of design and features, pools can range from a half-million dollars to $5 million. While the residential pool market in the United States is the largest, the Asia Pacific and the Middle East regions are fast-growing. These days, technology and thoughtful design have helped overcome earlier challenges. The prospect of maintenance, for instance, no longer stands in the way of homeowners who want to take the plunge. Pool upkeep has never been easier. Smart technology enables heating, filtration, and lighting to be controlled from a smartphone. “You can put the heat on your Jacuzzi pool when you’re driving home so it’s ready when you get there,” Sansone says. Pool designers have managed to solve another issue: space constraints. Diminutivesize plunge pools and cocktail pools are elegant options even for the most space-challenged urban spaces. The cocktail pool, sometimes known as a spool—spa pool—is like an Olympic pool’s little brother and represents a growing segment of the industry. An irregular-shaped yard? An angled pool is the answer. “Having a pool is really soothing,” Sansone says. “There’s a peacefulness in looking into a crystal clear pool and hearing the sounds of the water, even if you don’t go in.”

SHOWTIME FOR MUSEUM OF BROADWAY CURTAIN’S ALMOST UP FOR IMMERSIVE EXHIBITS THAT PAY HOMAGE TO THE GREAT WHITE WAY

hen theater buffs walk into the Museum of Broadway, opening this W fall right next door to the storied Lyceum

The Museum of Broadway will open next door to the Lyceum Theatre in Manhattan. At left, an exterior rendering.

Theatre in midtown Manhattan, they’ll be able to see the history, artistry, and legacy of Broadway musicals, plays, and theaters come to life. That’s the goal Julie Boardman and Diane Nicoletti, co-founders and college friends, set out to accomplish when they began mapping out the concept for this museum, in 2017. Finding the right space in the heart of New York City’s theater district—a process that began in 2018 and continued throughout the pandemic—was the first step. “We spent a long time looking,” says Boardman, an entrepreneur and four-time Tony Award-nominated producer. “We needed to have at least 20,000 square feet and a ground-floor entrance. We feel so lucky that we found something right next door to the oldest operating Broadway theater.” Encompassing four floors, the interactive space, founded in collaboration with Playbill, Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS, the Al Hirschfeld Foundation, and several other partners, highlights groundbreaking moments throughout Broadway’s illustrious history. “We got our inspiration from different experiential museums,” Boardman says. “There will be artifacts, costumes, and history, but instead of seeing it on the wall you will walk through the timeline of Broadway.”

Throughout the experience, visitors will travel through a visual history of Broadway, from its inception in the Financial District to its present day in Times Square. The layout of the museum is intentional: Upon entering the space, fans will learn all about the shows currently running on Broadway, including long-running productions and new ones in all 41 theaters. Next, museumgoers will go back in time and learn about the pioneers of Broadway, the landmark moments of social change, and delve into the back story behind many of the most beloved plays and musicals of all time via immersive installations designed by leading contemporary visual artists and acclaimed Broadway designers. “As you walk through the museum, you’ll not only see a show’s artifacts but we’ll also have recreations of a set and artistic interpretations of that show,” says Nicoletti, founder of Rubik Marketing, an award-winning experiential agency in New York City, which has organized Game of Thrones and X-Men experiential fan events, among many others. “We hope that when someone remembers a room for its visual elements it might help them understand the history of Broadway a little bit better.” Another highlight: Guests will go backstage to get a taste of “The Making of a Broadway Show,” with a special exhibit honoring the community of talented professionals—both onstage and off—who bring magic to every performance of a Broadway play or musical. In the ground-floor retail store, Broadway fans can shop for everything from show-specific items to limited-edition Hirschfeld merchandise and bespoke products from small local businesses. A ground-floor studio space has been configured for multiple purposes, from kids’ birthday parties and panel discussions to cocktail parties and corporate get-togethers. There will be show-specific events and, even, classes that will take place in that space. “For example, if you want to take a dance class and learn choreography from the Moulin Rouge instructors, we can do that in that space,” Nicoletti says. The space will take its cues from the timed ticket experiences at such exhibits as “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” in order to control the flow of guests in the space and enforce social distancing. Whether visitors are die-hard Broadway fans or simply enjoy theater from time to time, the museum’s founders are committed to creating a space that pays homage to Broadway’s legacy. “A Broadway museum could be organized in a lot of different ways but the path we’ve taken acknowledges that the art we create today can exist because of all the pioneers who pushed the boundaries,” Boardman says. “They really made this art form what it is today and we want to honor that.” 43

SEABOURN SETS SAIL THE ULTRALUXURY CRUISE LINE PREPS THE LAUNCH OF TWO NEW EXPEDITION SHIPS

Seabourn Venture is one of two new experiential cruise ships entering the market for bucket-list travel.

44

eteran travelers who have already cruised the world’s seas in style on V well-appointed ships are increasingly

looking to take their love of aquatic exploration to another level. Expedition travel—one of the fastest growing segments of the cruise industry—is now positioned atop many a bucket list. Seabourn, a brand of Carnival Corp. and PLC, is launching two purpose-built expedition ships: Seabourn Venture is scheduled to make its maiden voyage this July, while Seabourn Pursuit is set to debut in 2023. Each ship will feature 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites, with a total capacity of up to 264 guests. They’ll also venture farther north and south than any ship in Carnival’s history.

“Our primary goal in building these new ships is to give expedition travelers the best possible destination experience onboard and far afield, with an innovative design that enables us to get all guests out into the environment as quickly as possible to fulfill those travel wish lists,” says Robin West, vice president of expedition operations for Seabourn. “These ships have been designed from conception for expedition travel blended with ultraluxury and personalized service.” The hull for Seabourn’s expedition ships has been constructed to PC6 Polar Class standards, making the ships capable of summer and autumn operations in Antarctica, the Arctic, and other

exotic destinations. Propulsion will be delivered by Azipod units, giving the ships greater maneuverability. Other operational design touches include shell doors, which will be used by guests to move on and off the ships, placed right at the waterline to make it easy for passengers to step right on to a Zodiac boat. This improved accessibility allows guests to move quickly to view wildlife or go ashore to enjoy remarkable landscapes. And lots of open deck space means passengers take in views of mountains, glaciers, and greenery. Onboard crew will include a 26-person expedition team of experienced wilderness experts, scientists, historians,


and naturalists. During each sailing, the experts will regularly interact with guests to provide in-depth insights into the history, ecology, and culture of each destination. In 2022, Seabourn Venture will visit destinations in the Arctic, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Customers can choose from more than a dozen immersive voyages, ranging from 10 to 15 days. Seabourn Venture’s maiden voyage, “Northern Isles & The Viking Homeland,” will depart from London in July. “Our expedition itineraries in 2022 will offer a ‘safari at sea’ where travelers experience the diversity of nature and wildlife on either side of the equator,” says Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Seabourn Venture will offer the perfect balance of immersive, compelling adventures combined with our unrivaled luxury service.” Seabourn Pursuit’s inaugural voyage, “Lands of Fire and Ice,” is scheduled to depart Reykjavik, Iceland, in April 2023. The itinerary, which winds its way along the coasts of Iceland and Greenland, will allow passengers to explore snowy landscapes, magnificent waterfalls, hot springs, and lava fields. In August 2023, the ship’s Northwest Passage journey will take it through some of the Northern Hemisphere’s most remote areas, from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, to Nome, Alaska.

HIGH - END ACCOMMODATIONS

Despite the incredible surroundings, passengers might find themselves tempted to stay in and luxuriate in the boats’ opulent guest suites; the Veranda, Panorama Veranda, and Penthouse categories have been designed by New York City’s Tihany Design. Each suite features elegant touches that reflect bygone maritime craftsmanship; materials include wood, stone, and intricately textured fabrics. Each suite also has a built-in heated jacket wardrobe, where guests can grab a warm coat before heading out or hang wet parkas and other gear to dry quickly. The two-story Grand Wintergarden suites, a new layout for Seabourn, have been designed by Tihany to provide expansive, apartment-style accommodations. Located midship, these suites have a generous lower level living area that is large enough for entertaining, with a separate guest bath, a pantry, and wet bar stocked with a customized selection of spirits including a bottle

of Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, inspired by Sir Ernest Shackleton’s iconic British Antarctic Expedition of 1907. UNDERWATER EXPLORATION

Each ship will carry 24 Zodiacs and an assortment of kayaks, as well as a pair of battery-powered submarines operating excursions for an extra charge. Each U-Boat Worx Cruise Sub 7, designed specifically for Seabourn, will carry up to six guests as well as one pilot, who will guide journeys up to 300 meters beneath the surface. “The undersea world is often considered as the last great frontier on Earth, with more than 80% of the underwater realm remaining unmapped, unobserved, and unexplored according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,” West says. “With these subs, we’re going to take our guests to places that few have ever seen firsthand,

leaving them with a perspective on the world around us that is jaw-dropping and will create stories to last a lifetime.” The subs will be operated multiple times per day in regions around the world where conditions are suitable. HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Completing the experience is an immersive spa and wellness facility as well as a mindful living program with Dr. Andrew Weil. “Spa & Wellness is sure to be a standout space for our guests,” Leibowitz notes. “Over the past year, wellness has grown in importance in many people’s personal lives, and our highly trained staff will be devoted to providing a robust series of mind and body programs and rejuvenating treatments developed in collaboration with Dr. Weil to ensure travelers can relax, reconnect, and recharge during their time on board.”

The Seabourn Venture has high-end accommodations, with lots of elegant touches that reflect bygone maritime craftsmanship.

OAHU OASIS HAWAII LOA RIDGE IS PRIZED FOR THE PRIVACY IT OFFERS AND ITS PANORAMIC OCEAN AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS

46

awaii Loa Ridge, a private gated subdivision in East Honolulu, H is the most exclusive and expensive

community on the oasislike Hawaiian island of Oahu. Set in the foothills of the Koolau Mountains, it’s prized for its privacy, its relaxing lifestyle, and its panoramic ocean and mountain views—a true escape from busy city life. “It’s a magical place to live as it embraces so much beauty in all directions, including peaceful interaction with nature that’s calming to the mind,”

says Akimi Mallin, a realtor with List Sotheby’s International Realty. “Yet one can still be close to many island activities.” GRAND RESORT- STYLE ESTATES

Only a 15-minute drive from the beachy neighborhood of Waikiki, Hawaii Loa Ridge, which the locals call simply “The Ridge,” is nestled between the communities of Aina Haina and Niu Valley on Oahu’s south shore. It backs up to the Pia Valley preserve, a large rainforest. It is home to a variety of residents,

ranging from prominent personalities and celebrities to families and retirees; the population hovers around 18,000. “It attracts people from all over the world,” Mallin says. “It is very friendly and neighborly.” Established in 1980, the community has only about 550 custom-built homes that are set on up to an acre of land each. Although their styles range from Mediterranean to contemporary, they all share a grandeur that Mallin says, “makes you feel like you’re living in a resort.”

Many of the residences, she says, have pools and were designed to merge interior and exterior spaces. “There are views of Diamond Head and Koho Head,” she says. “You can see the Pacific Ocean and the fabulous sunrises. There are stars galore on a clear night. There also are cool mountain breezes and many rainbows.” The community itself features a variety of amenities that reinforce the luxury lifestyle of the residents. In addition to 24/7 security, there are tennis courts, a park with places to picnic, a clubhouse, common landscaped areas, and a professionally managed homeowners association. Prices range from $3 million to $27 million, Mallin says, adding that the most recent sale, in March 2022, was slightly more than $6 million for a 5,658-square-foot house that has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and a half bathroom, and that is sited on a third of an acre. “There rarely are vacant lots available,” she says, noting that there currently are only 20 active listings. The priciest is $27 million. WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE

The beauty of Hawaii Loa Ridge starts with the views, Mallin says. “On a clear day, you can see three of the island chains—Molokai, Maui, and Lanai.” The Pia Valley preserve, which covers 300 acres, extends the beauty and the views. “It’s home to priceless

native plants and has an intact native forest of Ohi trees, Koa trees, and rare and threatened endangered species,” she says. The climate is another draw: The average year-round temperature is 78.4 to 84.4 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition to The Ridge’s own park, there are several green spaces nearby, including Kuliouou Beach Park and Kawaikui Beach Park. There are a variety of luxury shopping malls in the area that feature dining options. Kahala Mall has over 100 jewelry, clothing, and electronics shops as well as Whole Foods. Ala Moana, which is 15 minutes away, offers “worldclass designer merchandise and has a beach park and restaurants,” Mallin says. The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Mallin notes, “has five stylish restaurants and a world-class spa. You can swim in a private lagoon with dolphins.” Nearby golf clubs include the Waialae Country Club and Hawaii Kai Golf Course. There are several private schools in the area, including Honolulu Waldorf School, which enrolls students from prekindergarten through eighth grade; Holy Nativity School, for children in prekindergarten through sixth grade; and Mary, Star of the Sea School, a Roman Catholic institution for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. “There are many things to do in Honolulu,” Mallin says. “Hawaii Loa Ridge is close to everything.”

COMBINING DESIGN TRADITIONS THE DUO BEHIND FAMED DESIGN -ARCHITECTURE STUDIO GAMFRATESI ON HOW THEY WORK TOGETHER, FIND BALANCE, AND MORE

anish-Italian architect and design duo Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi have built their reputation by combining D their two cultures into a minimalist aesthetic. Best known Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, shown above, combine their cultures into a minimalist style, as seen in the Balance hanging mobile, shown at right.

48

for the often-replicated Beetle chair the duo made for design house Gubi and the Balance hanging mobile created for modern home furnishings maker Cappellini, the influential duo are also active designing inventive cafes and restaurants. In Manila, the Harlan & Holden cafe gets its inspiration from a greenhouse to create a sense of calm, as the cafe is situated in the midst of a busy commercial area. Verandah in Copenhagen also plays on the theme of outdoors versus indoors; it uses outdoor furniture and houses verdant trees with fragrant flowers. A hotel is in their future, though details, even its location, remain under wraps. GamFratesi’s latest project is a collaboration blending three distinct visions into a singular visual and sensory experience. The Copenhagen-based duo created a set of high-end scented home and car diffusers for Italian home fragrance maker Acqua di Parma and Italian leather furniture company Poltrona Frau. The airbound collection features fine leather spheres that straddle an electric diffuser, which infuses its surrounding with heady aromas. We spoke to the couple about how they combine their design traditions, how Italian and Scandinavian design differ and complement each other, and more.


This diffuser collection draws on both of your heritages, as well as that of two luxury brands. How did you combine it all?

stine gam: We have to find the music that sets the harmony between the two brands and ourselves. Which is how we usually work; we are accustomed to working between cultures, between ourselves, and between personalities. That’s the interesting part, finding what’s important in the DNA of all three partners. What do you find your two cultures have in common and what sets them apart, in terms of design?

gam: We both come from very strong traditions in design.

Italy is driven more by conceptual thinking, almost like a manifesto, and the Scandinavian approach is much more like a process—they go step by step. More comes from the craft.

enrico fratesi: It’s natural for us to translate both our

cultures into our work. When we start a project we want to come to it with a concept or idea, which is probably the Italian part. But then of course, our way of working is very symbiotic, because we are a couple in life and in work. That also makes it difficult to find where one started and the other finished. It’s a fluid process that becomes a mix of cultures in a very honest and natural way.

What are some examples?

fratesi: The Beetle chair we did for Gubi, which has been

very popular. We had to look for something to start the chair, because we didn’t want to start from a blank page. So we used an actual beetle for inspiration, because it was fascinating and because it was cute. I think this is why some of our projects are successful—because they’re iconic and they have a story. The beetle is still recognizable, even if there are only a few lines. That has always been the challenge; few elements, but making sure it’s still recognizable. gam: We took a lot of meaning from the beetle itself. Beetles have their protective shells, and inside they’re soft and fertile. We worked with upholstery to create the feeling of being embraced, while also recognizing its fragility.

GamFratesi (3)

How did the Balance mobile you created for Cappellini come about?

gam: That was for our first noncommercial exhibition. We were asked to express our philosophy at an exhibition in Milan. We thought about what we wanted to express, what pieces we wanted to show, and we ended up making this mobile. At that moment we were searching for balance in life, in process, and in work. Doing this mobile became very metaphoric for us, because it was all about how everything is interconnected; change one thing, and it falls out of balance. That became a metaphor for everyday life, that one telephone call can make your day or ruin it.

fratesi: Instead of the classic mobile made out of wood, we

used a fun absorbing material made with pressed foam that’s then covered with Kvadrat textiles. It makes a functional room divider with a contemporary twist. For us it’s important to look to the past and then try to translate it; we believe as people and behavior change through time, it’s reflected in the design.

The duo was inspired by an insect for the popular—and oftenreplicated—Beetle chair, shown above.

Can you share anything about this secret hotel project?

fratesi: All we can say is that it’s the first large-scale project

we’ve ever done. It’s kind of like a 360, where we design something we already have in mind—the hotel—and then we make projects to be inserted back into the project. It’s really nice that it’s not only related to furniture, but more to the full environment. 49

The approach seems to be working: In 2021, the company had its best year ever, with 8,405 cars delivered worldwide.

BUGATTI, YOUR WAY Starting at $61,085, the buyer of a Rolls-Royce can upgrade with the Cellarette, a combination cigar humidor, ashtray, lighter, glassware storage closet, and whiskey chest, shown at right.

Last year, Bugatti launched its exclusive Sur Mesure (“tailored”) service, designed to meet what it said was a growing demand for “ultracustomized” materials, designs, and finishes. It’s a bespoke approach that starts with a one-on-one consultation with Bugatti experts. For would-be owners, there’s no need to be restricted to catalog colors or leather choices. The process has resulted in several “one-of-one” cars, such as the hand-painted Chiron Zebra in Titanic Blue and Gunpowder Gray, created for a customer in Qatar in 2019. The Divo Ladybug, from 2021, has a unique paint job. It took Lamborghini 18 months to create its “geometric-dynamic algorithmic fading pattern” for an affluent American customer. The Divo costs $5.7 million before options like this get added on.

A BENTLEY-BRANDED BAG

For $2,391, Bentley sells a business overnight bag that combines Italian leather craftsmanship with a contemporary and practical British design inspired by the iconic shape of the Bentley dashboard. The zipper pulls are palladium-plated, there’s a grilleinspired patterned nylon interior lining, and the Bentley emblem on the front panel. The twin top handles are hand cross-stitched, and the shoulder strap is detachable. Inside, there’s room for documents, a change of clothing, and, of course, a laptop. TIME FOR FERRARI

Watches and cars go together. And for $2,800, Ferrari offers the limitededition Swiss-made Aspire automatic chronograph watch. Only 199 will be made. Features include a forged carbonfiber dial and a transparent back

showing off the 25-jewel self-winding movement (with a contrasting Scuderia Ferrari-branded rotor). The detailing is, of course, in Rosso Corsa red. The owner of this numbered watch gets an engraved plaque attesting to its exclusivity. Another option is trying to find a Hublot Ferrari Unico Carbon, a very limited edition unveiled during the Geneva Motor Show in 2018—only 500 were made. The case is in carbon fiber, and the hands—in Ferrari red, are faceted, polished black nickel. The crown echoes the look of auto pedals, and the rotor is wheel-inspired. The clasp is titanium and the strap Black Alcantara. The original price was £23,000. In the aftermarket, the offerings can get quite extravagant. S.P. Green & Co. offered a £14,500 Ferrari ignition key encrusted with 1,160 diamonds.

MINDFUL MOVEMENT FORMER BARRY’S INSTRUCTOR KEONI HUDOBA BUILT A GLOBAL FITNESS EMPIRE VIRTUALLY

52


Darren Harman (2)

trainer Keoni Hudoba is on the move. Fitness The Hawaii-born, New York City-

based athlete credits a movement call on stage in his early career as an opera singer for inspiring his personal and professional journey as a world-renowned athlete. “My first passion was always performing. I started working professionally singing out of college and during that process, I was super overweight. During a movement call I thought I was going to have a full-blown heart attack. It was the biggest ‘a-ha’ moment,” Hudoba says. Hudoba, 39, acknowledged his extra weight felt like a security blanket at a time when he was coming to terms with his sexuality and feeling comfortable in his own skin. “I was gaining weight at a rapid pace, and I thought, ‘This is not what I want to do. This is not who I want to be.’ I finally acknowledged who I was and came out to my family,” Hudoba says. It was a moment of clarity, propelling him forward to chase a career in fitness. Hudoba became a certified personal trainer, starting his career at Equinox. He launched a method of his own and went on to work for some of the most recognized fitness studios, such as high-intensity interval workout studio Barry’s and cycling workout SoulCycle, and eventually signed on with Under Armour to train its professional athletes before starting his own fitness company, Cyc Fitness, an indoor cycling studio he sold in 2016. After becoming an investing partner at Barry’s, the pandemic hit, forcing Hudoba to rethink traditional workouts. “I had never done an Instagram Live in my life,” Hudoba says, about pivoting to social media platforms to maintain and build a remote fitness audience. He started teaching a free class online at 9 a.m. every day and created a GoFundMe page to raise money for small businesses hurt as a result of the pandemic, donating more than $80,000 in relief, he says. Then he started building his businesses virtually, establishing a

Zoom platform for his fans to join the high-intensity classes composed of AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) and EMOM (every minute on the minute) workouts, where a certain number of exercises are done in repetition targeting specific muscles. The exercises could be done with household items. The hype garnered the attention of partners like Lululemon whom he teamed up with to start teaching safe, in-studio workouts in downtown Manhattan. His workout, COREntine+, is a 50-minute total body HIIT workout (high-intensity interval training) that features weights, bands, and body weight. TIP: FINDING A HEALTHY BALANCE

Hudoba says being mindful about his health and wellness instead of restricting is key to seeing progress on his continued fitness journey. “With my age, I know that my body is really changing now. It doesn’t move the same; my metabolism is not as fast. When it comes to nutrition, during the week, I’m pretty strict about what I eat. Taking mental breaks was a big thing for me too,” Hudoba says, of taking three weeks off to reset in the new year. “It felt incredible—taking those mental breaks is great. Even yesterday I stayed off my phone.” Hudoba says finding an accountability partner to help you stay on track with health and fitness goals can make all the difference. “I’m always a believer in the buddy system. It’s very tough if you’re not motivated. You have to find that motivation from something or someone—finding someone who resonates with you, and understands what your goals are,” he says. TIP: SWITCH IT UP

Hudoba avoids staying stagnant—in life and in his workouts—and when it comes to exercise that means embracing variety. “I go to hot yoga often, or Megaformer classes. I used to run six to seven miles a day; now I’m a stair climber. Don’t be afraid to switch it up,” Hudoba says. 53

IN THEIR OWN HANDS HOME MANICURES HAVE IMPROVED, BRINGING THE SALON EXPERIENCE CLOSER THAN EVER

end polishes, at-home manicures have become the epitome of self-care luxury. “While our customers still cherish the salon experience, they’re now more empowered to take polish and routine maintenance into their own hands,” says Nadine Abramcyk, co-founder and head of brand for the nail-care company Tenoverten. “Our manicure kit has been one of our most popular new sets.” Jess Hannah Révész, founder and designer of the nail polish and jewelry purveyor J. Hannah, adds that the tutorials of influencers who are showcasing their over-the-top manicures on Instagram and TikTok are “likely providing people with the confidence to tackle it on their own at home.” If anything, notes Julie Campbell, general manager of Butter London, a

54

pioneering brand in the creation of luxury nail products formulated without known toxic ingredients, the pandemic has expanded the market. “Women— and men—have discovered that the at-home beauty treatment provides an inexpensive ‘me’ moment,” she says. The renewed focus on manicures, which is part of a larger wellness trend, has created a wider awareness of the potentially harmful and damaging effects of traditional nail-care products, such as gel and acrylic applications. “When forced to remove artificial enhancements themselves during the lockdown, women found dry, brittle, weak, and paper-thin nails under the surface,” Campbell says. “While nail polish can never be completely ‘natural,’” Abramcyk says, “our polishes are cruelty-free, vegan- and 8-free, which means they do not contain dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, or triphenyl phosphate.” To accommodate the growing demand, the brands have responded with attractively packaged, salon-style kits that are designed to be displayed on the vanity like trophies and that, according to Révész, “make the at-home manicure an elevated, luxurious experience—not a chore or an afterthought.” Butter London’s Jelly Preserve Strengthening Treatment, according to Campbell, is a “game changer” for those who want to undo the damage done to their nails or treat common nail concerns. The product, which is packed with vitamin E, tea tree oil, hydrolyzed keratin, and the amino acid arginine, coats nails in a translucent tint that conditions, strengthens, and continuously hydrates them. Two of J. Hannah’s newest collections,

collaborations with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, have all but elevated polish to an art form. Inspired by “About Time,” the 2020 exhibit in the New York City museum’s Costume Institute, the first Mini Met collection is a set of five posh polishes: Onyx (black), Cameo (cream), Talisman (silver), Deco (gold), plus a mini bottle of the brand’s signature pearl-hued polish, Akoya. “The silver and gold both have a larger foil suspended in a clear base, which provides a more sophisticated feel—sparkles for grown-ups,” Révész says. The second Mini Met collection, created in connection with the institution’s 2021 “Surrealism Beyond Borders” exhibition, is comprised of three polishes that Révész describes as “Carnelian, a vibrant red, slightly faded as if from memory; Prim, an ode to an unmoored sky; and Enigma, a viscous neutral with a peculiar twist of green that keeps you guessing.” “All of our classic shades are a tribute to iconic New York City streets, like Canal, Bond, and Church,” says Tenoverten’s Abramcyk. “Our newest addition is Riverside, a beautiful sheer blue.” She adds that “our male customers are big fans of Bond, a classic black.” It’s clear that the at-home manicure, for men as well as women, is a “practice that’s here to stay,” Abramcyk says. Campbell’s prediction: “Remote painting parties will really take off.”

AN AMERICAN CIDER RENAISSANCE EVEN WINE LOVERS ARE DISCOVERING THE VARIETIES — AND VERSATILITY— OF THIS TIPPLE

A peek inside the production space at EsoTerra, a cider brand based in Colorado.

RESIDE SUMMER 2022

C

ider is having a moment, thanks to passionate makers around the country who are bullish on its flavor profile and versatility, with some ciders offering a dry finish and others even imparting notes of vanilla. Like wine, the flavor and mouthfeel of a cider depends on several things, including the cider-making technique itself as well as the region of the country where the apples are sourced. “There are more and more cider makers planting heirloom apple varieties and making higher quality cider using those same apples,” says Amie Fields, a cider educator and co-founder at Botanist & Barrel, a cidery in Cedar Grove, N.C. “Others are foraging for feral apples and making truly one-of-a-kind terroir-driven vintage cider.” The finest ciders being made around the country are premium artisanal varieties that are actually—by definition— considered wines, says Elizabeth Philbrick, co-founder of EsoTerra, an artisanal hard cider brand located in Dolores, Colo., that is sold at its tasting room, shipped nationally, and available at select luxury resorts in the region. “These take a significant time to make—ours take six months to several years—and they’re made, served, and stored like wine. Best of all, they age really well and, over time, become more interesting.” In its region of Colorado (EsoTerra calls itself the “cider of the Southwest”), Philbrick says there are over 500 varieties of known apples and over 100 unknown varieties to work with, leading to the creation of a diverse spectrum of ciders. “Each one has just as much variation of flavor that a grape varietal would have,” she says. “Cider apples tend to be small and gnarly looking, like potatoes, but these are the apples that will have these wonderfully unique flavors, like subtle hints of pineapple and guava, that only appear after they’re fermented.” At Botanist & Barrel, which calls itself the South’s only natural cidery focused on spontaneous native fermentation and petillant naturel ciders, an old-school cider-making method in which fermentation occurs in the bottle, trapping the carbon dioxide and yeast in the bottle, cider offers endless flavor profiles, Fields says. “Think dry rose or high-elevation white wines,” she says. “We make over 100 seasonal small batch ciders each year with local fruits, from Champagnelike terroir-driven apple ciders, to cider/wine hybrids using local Southern grapes.”

Ask Todd Cavallo, owner of Wild Arc Farm in Pine Bush, N.Y., and he’ll tell you that he thinks part of what has broadened cider’s appeal is the fact that people, wine drinkers especially, are more open-minded about it. “We’ve noticed that customers aren’t putting a grape wine on a pedestal and thinking that wine is the only thing you should drink and everything else is lesser,” he says. He also thinks people are connecting more to the history of the beverage, though that history is fraught, acknowledges Ellen Cavalli, co-owner of Tilted Shed Ciderworks, the first farm-to-glass orchard cider maker in Sonoma County that opened in 2011 in Windsor, Calif. “We’ve all been taught that John Adams drank a tankard of cider every morning and Thomas Jefferson grew cider apples, but it was his slaves who did all the work.” This is yet another reason today’s cider makers are seeking to forge a new chapter in the history of this favorite beverage. “They want to tap into [the history] and bring back the better parts of what cider means for American culture and drinking culture as a whole,” Cavallo says. WHAT TO DRINK—AND HOW TO DRINK IT

A glass of cider at the EsoTerra tasting room, shown at top. Below, bottles and charcuterie at Botanist & Barrel in North Carolina.

Not all ciders are created equal. “There are lots of canned varieties out there, what we call ‘soda pop ciders’ that are often really sweet and contain artificial colors and flavorings,” Philbrick says. “The reality is that it’s the premium artisanal ciders that are the fastest growing subset in the cider market.” Like wine, cider pairs with an endless list of foods, from spicy entrees to creamy pasta dishes. (Note: Cider has a lower alcohol content than wine, usually between 6% and 8% rather than 12%.) “Because cider has good acidity and it’s not overly tannic or overly alcoholic, it won’t compete with many flavors,” Cavallo says. “You can pair cider with anything you’d drink a light white or sparkling wine with. My favorite thing to do is to pair cider with a pork dish. Pork chops and apples are always a good pairing. You can’t go wrong.”

classic evokes the familiar, and yet, pair it with a martini and a dollop of caviar, a hint of foie gras, or a few shavings of truffle, and suddenly the richness of the simple staple tastes like a million bucks. The universally delicious hand-held meal has been elevated across the globe with these upscale takes.

All that’s griddled is culinary gold at this upscale Chicago diner that evokes the nostalgia of your favorite greasy spoon with the mastery of high-low ingredients. There’s bologna. There’s foie gras. At Au Cheval, burgers are classified as “sandwiches” on the menu, and in


this case for good reason, considering that topping suggestions can be an egg, crispy bacon, or house-made fried bologna for peak indulgence. The restaurant does not accept reservations, and the bar is perfect for solo diners. Pair your burger with a stiff martini to balance out the richness. THE BAR BURGER AT MAISON DE LA LUZ, NEW ORLEANS

Japanese Wagyu beef is the star of this burger at Bar Marilou inside the Maison de la Luz hotel, located just steps away from New Orleans’ French Quarter. This French-inspired bar, located in a former library, has a menu fully loaded with indulgences—like foie gras with duck prosciutto and a caviar selection—so it’s no surprise that its burger is equally luxe. The Wagyu beef patty comes topped with French Saint Andre cheese—a soft-ripened blend of brie mixed with sour cream and whipped sweet cream—pickled cucumber, lettuce, and onion. It’s served on a fluffy potato bun. THE GOLDEN EDITION: WESTSIDE COWGIRL AT HARLEM BURGER CO., NEW YORK CITY

This burger adds a little something extra—edible gold. You’ll probably want to document this edible spectacle, which features a medley of comfort food-inspired fixings piled high. The Golden Edition: Westside Cowgirl, as it’s called, is topped with Swiss cheese, bacon, crisp tempura onion, homemade barbecue sauce, and egg cooked over easy with lettuce and tomato. Go the extra mile and pair this mouthwatering marvel with a shake and fries.

PRIME RIB BURGER AT THE CONTINENTAL, NASHVILLE

Chef Sean Brock’s take is traditional, with high-quality ingredients. The Continental, located inside the Grand Hyatt, just a stone’s throw away from the live music and bars on bustling Broadway, uses quality cuts of prime rib folded into Bear Creek Farm’s ground beef for its burger. The patty is crusted with peppercorns and seared. But that’s just the base of this lavish lunch or dinner—the burger is loaded with red onions, Cantal cheese, tomato, and, the kicker: foie gras mayonnaise. It’s served with gaufrette potato chips and horseradish cream. And talk about a burger that comes with hype—there’s only a limited number of them made every day at the bar starting at 5 p.m. and in order to claim one, guests are given a golden ticket. The restaurant is inspired by American dining in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and offers table-side cart service. THE GOLDEN BOY AT DE DALTONS DINER IN VOORTHUIZEN, NETHERLANDS

This burger dubs itself the world’s most expensive. And with a hefty price tag just shy of US$6,000, it just might be. Chef Robbert Jan de Veen of De Daltons diner in Voorthuizen cooked up everything extravagant for The Golden Boy Burger. It starts with a gold-leaf bun that sandwiches a patty comprised of Wagyu beef and chuck short ribs topped with Paleta Iberico Bellota ham, onion rings made with Dom Perignon Champagne in the batter, Beluga caviar, king crab, white truffle, and cheddar cheese.

That’s not all though—it’s served with a barbecue sauce made with single malt Macallan whiskey among other lavish ingredients. THE INFAMOUS TRUFFLE BURGER AT SERENDIPITY 3, NEW YORK CITY

Food aficionados may know this iconic tourist destination from the classic early 2000s romantic comedy film with the same name, Serendipity, for its famous frozen hot chocolate—but the burgers are also standouts. The Infamous Truffle Burger is dressed with luxury condiments, including Boursin cheese, truffle vinaigrette, black truffle mayonnaise, and an option to add bacon. Save room for dessert if you can. THE BHANGRA BURGER AT BABA G’S, LONDON

Lamb lovers will appreciate this burger spiced to perfection. The feast for the senses comes with a spiced lamb patty topped with an onion bhaji, raita (an Indian yogurt sauce), tamarind, mango, and a coriander and onion relish. PLANTA BURGER AT PLANTA WITH LOCATIONS IN TORONTO, FLORIDA, NEW YORK, AND MARYLAND

The dining ambience of this upscale Toronto-based vegan restaurant has a Southern California aesthetic with lush greenery like sprouting snake plants, palm leaves, and Bird of Paradise plants filling the airy space. The Planta Burger, a meatless bean-based patty with mushrooms, lentils, and chickpeas, comes dressed with queso and dill pickles, and a side of almond parmesan truffle fries for eaters looking to cut out meat without compromising on big, bold flavor. 59

aromatics is a crispy condiment that packs a punch. The spicy spread has been used in China and other parts of the world for decades. And the American market has caught on to the delicious umami condiment in recent years, with versions now seen on mainstream grocery store shelves and as the star of any hot sauce collection. Use it to spice up an omelet, douse it over a slice of pizza, or savor it sweetly with ice cream—chili crisp amplifies flavor. One of the most tried and true—and commonly recognized—chili crisp brands is Lao Gan Ma, though the hot stuff has been used in China for centuries. It was made by Tao Huabi—who became known as the “Godmother of Sauce”—who began bottling up the condiment in 1997 at her noodle shop in Southern China, according to the brand’s website. The ingredient was so well-liked by customers, it spread like wildfire and eventually made its way overseas. Lao Gan Ma was meant to spice up a simple stir-fry, salmon, fish, pork, chicken, and just about any blank food canvas. The sauce is made with caramelized chilies, fermented soybeans, garlic, peanuts, and MSG for umami flavor. It’s sweet, savory, and, of course, spicy. “To me, as a chef, Lao Gan Ma is the standard. A lot of people are doing their own versions of it now. I dress it up a bit with blanched ginger, fresh scallion, oil, lime, and a few other seasonings,” says Jeremy Dean, a chef at Lucky Rabbit Noodles in Brooklyn, N.Y. “I’ve also put it in sandwiches like spicy turkey instead of mayo because it adds a little more crunch to it,” he adds. Today, a slew of new chili crisp iterations in the U.S. are being cooked up by second-generation Chinese and Taiwanese American chefs and restaurateurs putting their own unique spin on the beloved pantry staple. Here are some sublime sauces worth checking out: FLY BY JING SICHUAN CHILI CRISP

Made by a Chinese chef from Chengdu, China, Fly By Jing Sichuan Chili Crisp was introduced in the U.S. in 2018 and is made with all-natural ingredients sans MSG. It features the rare tribute pepper harvested from Sichuan farmers with ingredients like rapeseed oil, fermented black beans, seaweed, mushrooms, and ground spices. Eaters are instructed to use the spice on “everything” from vanilla ice cream to fried eggs, pizza, vegetables, dumplings, and meat. MOMOFUKU CHILI CRUNCH

Taking inspiration from Lao Gan Ma, chef David Chang’s iteration used in the kitchen at his New York City Asian restaurant Momofuku Ssäm Bar features a chili crunch that’s

equal parts smoky and garlic-tasting with hints of sesame seeds and a rich umami flavor from mushroom powder and seaweed. It’s made with three types of Mexican chilies, crunchy garlic, and shallots. The hot stuff is so well received, there’s often a waiting list to order it. CHILE CRUNCH

Mexico City-born Susie Hojel has put her own spin on the household condiment. Her Chile Crunch combines her favorite salsas from Mexico made with roasted chiles de árbol, garlic, onion, and spices. “I moved to the U.S. and instantly missed the rich diversity of spices and chiles available everywhere in Mexico. Chile Crunch is the product of my vision for a return to the unique, savory blend of flavors from just south of the border,” Hojel describes on her website.

New York-based chef Jeremy Dean serves up his own homemade rendition of chili crisp, above, dressed up with ginger, scallions, and seasonings.

SZE DADDY TAIWANESE CHILI SAUCE

New York City-based chef Eric Sze of Taiwanese restaurant 886 in New York City finds inspiration from his Taiwanese roots for Sze Daddy sauce. His rendition is made with Sichuan peppercorns, Korean chili powder, sesame, scallion, garlic, dried chili, and spices like star anise. Sze Daddy is available for purchase online at Eighteightsix.com and at other online specialty food retailers. BOON

This condiment comes ranked with a seven out of 10 on the spice scale on its website. It’s made with a blend of chilies, spices, anchovies, shallots, and garlic cooked in better-foryou sunflower oil. It’s made by chef Max Boonthanakit, inspired by his Thai upbringing. Boonthanakit pairs his hot sauce with savory dishes like garlic shrimp, mixed in with tomato sauce for spicy pasta, and over fried rice. It’s sold online at boonsauce.com. 61

AUTHOR AND PLANTING ENTHUSIAST CLAIRE RATINON’S PICKS FOR GARDENING TOMES

Ratinon’s own reading about plants is broad, from stepby-step guides that she returns to over and over for support, to memoirs that gave her the push she needed to write Unearthed. Here are her must-reads for anyone interested in reconnecting with the land.

GROW YOUR OWN VEGETABLES BY JOY LARKCOM

“This is the vegetable grower’s Bible. A wealth of information and wisdom, it was first published in 1976, but I’m yet to find something in it that is not useful, or that is outdated. If you think ‘I really want to get into vegetable growing and I want everything I could possibly need,’ this is the book I would buy.” ANIMAL, VEGETABLE, MIRACLE BY BARBARA KINGSOLVER

“Barbara Kingsolver is such an incredible storyteller. This is the story of how she and her family moved to a piece of land and try to live off it for a year. It manages to capture the ups and downs of working the land. I’ve bought it three times but still don’t actually have a copy, I always end up giving it away.” WILD ABOUT WEEDS BY JACK WALLINGTON

laire Ratinon fell in love with digging the earth on a rooftop in New York City. She spent two seasons volunteering C at Brooklyn Grange, the leading rooftop farming business in

the U.S. “It was superproductive, not hobbyism but feeding the community, supplying restaurants,” she says. She moved back to London and opted to give up her office job to grow organic produce for the restaurants of famed chef Yotam Ottolenghi. And then, just before the pandemic, she escaped to the countryside of East Sussex, for a garden, and chickens to call her own. Ratinon, 38, details this switch, from city to country, and all that learning about plants has helped her realize about her inner self, in her new book, Unearthed: On Race and Roots, and How the Soil Taught Me I Belong. “The book has taken me down the road of looking into my heritage, and ancestry within that,” she says. “It is my journey into the work of growing food, but moves into the history of Mauritius where my family are from, the stories of my parents, and explores the issues of race and roots and belonging,” she says. “All of those things are for me intertwined in the relationships that we have with the plant world and wider ecosystem around us at large.”

“Jack is a brilliant garden designer and a deeply passionate gardener. This book is about taking a step back out of the stories we tell about the plants [weeds] that ‘aren’t supposed to be there,’ asking you to get to know them again and consider whether you find them beautiful. It does a nice job of explaining how you can work with what is already growing in your garden.” ROOTBOUND: REWILDING A LIFE BY ALICE VINCENT

“Alice’s writing is gorgeous, rich, and vulnerable. It melds horticulture and history with Alice’s personal story of a tender time in her life, plants woven throughout. It’s also based in South London, a celebration of plants that live in the city. If Alice hadn’t written this book, Unearthed wouldn’t exist.” FARMING WHILE BLACK BY LEAH PENNIMAN

“Leah is a brilliant human, for her growing work in upstate New York at Soul Fire Farm, an Afro-indigenous centered community farm, for how she encourages people to grow, and her book that is so powerful and resonant. It is very practical, but it’s also spiritual and she talks about the important role people of African descent have played in agriculture through the centuries. It initiated a bit of confidence in me to dare look at history that I had turned away from. With Leah’s work it is possible that other young Black and brown people will find their way toward growing without having to stumble across a rooftop farm in New York.” 63

ULTRA MODERN WATERFRONT ON SPA CREEK ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND

908 Creek Drive Seamlessly blending into the waterfront of Eastport, the boater’s mecca of Annapolis, Maryland, sits this multi award-winning modern masterpiece. Brought to life by Grid Architects, 908 Creek Drive evokes a one with nature vibration so many have attempted yet few have accomplished. Deliberately designed to showcase the two greatest loves of the owners, sailing and art, the home is an elegant backdrop for each. The living space is shielded from the bustle of the street and yet practically nudges you out the door through the rear, onto the decks and to the water below. The multi award-winning design is sleek and minimal, yet cozy and welcoming all at once. The use of natural woods throughout adds a warmth to the cool crisp of the white walls and entire facades of glass. The floating staircase beckons to the second-level sleeping quarters and an office that spills out to the vegetated roof. Many of the home’s features were designed with sustainability in mind, like the above-grade bioretention planters and permeable pavers above the storm water retention well. Every element of the home was carefully considered and constructed of the finest materials while deliberate in its sustainability. The ease of life in this space is obvious as it stirs the soul to breathe in the fresh salt air and contemplate a waterside lounge by the fire or a sail up the Bay. A truly luxurious modern masterpiece to be envied by many and experienced by few.
