The 1970s is quite possibly my favorite decade - it was just so cool and sexy. I love the furniture, the fashion, the music, the dancing... all of it.
Palm Springs Modernism Week is upon us. Although I'm not attending, it feels like an invitation to remember the work of some of my favorite architects, artists and designers. In the words of Ezra Pound, "Make it new!"
The countdown is on for the launch of our very own wallpaper line with Studio Four NYC! We are heading to New York this week for the reveal...here is a peek into some of the planning. Seeing something come to life that started with my paint brush is satisfying in a whole new way. Stay tuned for the full line and we will let you know as soon as it is available for purchase! A special thank you to Haskell Harris of Garden and Gun and Jennifer Boles of the Peak of Chic for the wallpaper love last week xo
French designer Pierre Guariche was said to have been motivated primarily by form, quality, and volume in his furniture designs. In the 1950s he became the designer behind Belgian company Muerop where he was able to create clean, elegant pieces that were industrially produced and accessible. Although he is best remembered for his lighting, his leather G1 chairs are a favorite of mine, and I am reminded of his influence in design almost daily. We all stand on the shoulders of giants.
