I absolutely love Achille Salvagni's furniture, which is sold at Maison Gerard (a wonderful shop that specializes in French deco furniture, which happens to also be one of my favorite eras) in New York. His collection is a limited edition, so snag it if you have some pennies lying around, because it won't last long. He's done work for everyone including a major and ultra fab lighting piece made out of onyx, bronze and marble for the one and only, Jeff Koons. I recently discovered quite the design shop in Venice, thanks to my dear friend Emily. Stahl + Band is owned by a rather talented designer Jeffrey Molter, and has some really special pieces that I can't wait to play around with for my new place. Jeffrey and I bonded over a variety of things from our love of BDDW to the beauty of fine design. I just can't wait to giggle around with him and sip fabulous cocktails in New York when he visits next.
The way I view design and decorating is the way I view relationships and engagements- carefully curate, but passionately commit. The same holds true for architecture. I admire architects like Peter Marino (works with a rolodex of clientele like: Chanel, Dior, etc), Daniel Romualdez (Clients include: Daphne Guinness & Tory Burch), and Winka Dubbeldam (Architect behind John Legend's New York Loft). Common, anyone that gets to design a Chanel store, you gotta love with a big double C, interlocking heart. I am currently in the process of aggregating pieces for my next place and it's been my new obsession- flea markets, thrift stores, estate sales, street markets, design shops- you name it! I have found the most insaneeee Mid-Century brass pieces that I am currently lusting over.
P.S this is my favorite thing ever. You're welcome.
