Couldn’t stop at one post about Beale Lana (see post below). I almost titled this one “If I was another room”. This amazing foyer was their contribution to this year’s Kips Bay Show House. Stunning! And yes those are silver egg chairs!! Glam punk and a dash of high style goth meets classic antiques and surfer chic. What a sense of fun!
Randall Beale and Carl Lana are the creative geniuses behind Beale Lana. Can you tell from that opening sentence that I am enamoured of their work, their style? With backgrounds as diverse as fashion and theatre, it’s easy to see where the duo get their sense of drama and refinement. The rooms are definitely statements but Beale Lana pride themselves on focusing on their clients’ personal style. Collections obviously play an important role in personalising these spaces. I could definitely live in these rooms! Love, lust.
I love the simple lines, the beauty of the timber, the lush use of leaves and plants, the old battered pieces with crisp new furniture.
