Women at Work: Leigh Magar

December 17, 2010

Leigh has an amazing collection of feathers, these are just a few on our side porch.

My studio above. I'm a sucker for burlap as seen here in my fuchsia drapes.

Leigh's one of kind hats and her prolific collection of vintage hat blocks.
Not only do I get to call beautiful Charleston, SC my home, but I also get to work in one of the coolest neighborhoods in town. I also happen to share studio space with some of the most talented and coolest girls around. Leigh Magar, of the very well known Magar Hatworks, owns the building and has her prodigious studio and work room on the first floor. Stacey Bradley, creator of Perla Anne, and photographer Julia Lynn along with myself reside upstairs. Julia recently photographed our spaces and Courtney Barnes at style court just posted a lovely story on the four of us, Women at Work: Julia, Angie, Stacey and Leigh. I am thrilled to have these girls among my closest friends. Although we sometimes have to stop ourselves from chatting it up so we can get some work done.

Paccha from Ann Sacks
I am in love with this old world kitchen in a house off the coast of Italy.

Two patterns from the Tabarka Studio collection.

Given the opportunity I would tile an entire room... wall, floors, ceiling. Of course it has to be amazing tile and I have been smitten with this Paccha tile from Ann Sacks for quite sometime. I am dying to use it in my own kitchen someday. In the meantime I am combining the exotic old world craftsmanship of these Tabarka Studio tiles with the clean lines of a modern day kitchen in one of my current projects. I am of course drawn to the more graphic patterns. I used a similar more subtle combination to great effect in the Coastal Living Idea Home kitchen that I designed last year.

Pumped Up is Right!

Ok, it doesn’t take much for me to get my groove on and this song is totally doing it. I can’t stop listening... or dancing. So make sure you have room to move before you play this.

Made in the South

Check out the new issue of Garden & Gun and you will see some amazing creations from a slew of talented folks across the south. A couple of my favorites include my friend and office mate Leigh Magar. I get to see these handmade beauties everyday in her studio downstairs and of course I have one of my own. And I can't wait to get my hands on a bottle of organic Roobie Red Tea from my hometown of Louisville, KY. I was also psyched to find out that my friend, Sid Evans, editor in chief of Garden & Gun, requested to have his new profile picture taken at Enoteca.

I Love

The sculpture at the Indianapolis Museum of Art

An 18K gold ring produced in 1971.

My very own LOVE sculpture on my desk at work.

I love collecting art, mostly abstract and mid-century portraits, but I'm also a graphic designer and often quite sentimental. So naturally, being a native of Indiana, I love Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE sculpture. Part of the Pop Art scene and created during the peace movement, Robert Indiana's first LOVE show opened at the Stable Gallery in 1966. It was then created into a postage stamp in 1973. I often buy the stamps on ebay. I also have a vintage paperweight and a gold love charm. Now I'm just holding out for an original silkscreen. This is certainly one thing we can never have too much of.
