"The building sits on 23rd Street with the air of a great dame who finds herself in the midst of a party of her social inferiors but instead of complaining decides to join right in the fun."
--The New York Times
Andrew Martin, based out of London, has an incredible line of fabrics, not to mention furniture, home accessories and several books. I was in awe when I went through his diverse line of fabrics, and love that he uses images of rooms where the fabrics are used as opposed to simply displaying swatches.
Dutch designer Maarten Baas has quite the imagination. I was totally blown away when I saw his work. He is so talented and creative that Moooi adopted his Smoke designs and his furniture has been bought by museums and collectors such as Philippe Starck. Did I mention he is only 29 years old?
Burned pieces of furniture, preserved with clear epoxy.
CLAY FURNITURE: Industrial clay, hand-modeled on top of metal 'skeletons', surface painted with colored lacquer.
"HEY, CHAIR, BE A BOOKSHELF!"
All kinds of products became a bookshelf, coated in P.U. coating.
The thing that I love about Ron Marvin's work is that this look is so achievable. Ron worked for many years for American household names Gap, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Hold Everything, and Williams-Sonoma Home. He is now an interior designer practicing in New York. He has an excellent eye for the vignette and packs a lot of punch in a very small space. Watch the Small Space, Big Style video on his website to see his gorgeous 250 square feet New York apartment. Lots of ideas to steal here.
