Extra! Extra! Generation makes the papers!!!

September 28, 2011

Freedom and flexibility are the guiding principles behind the creation of Knoll’s newest ergonomic seating solution, the Generation Chair. Recognizing that sitting upright, facing forward is just one of the many positions people take throughout the day, the design team behind the Generation Chair created a seat that moves with you, as you move. Providing both freedom of movement and continuous support, it’s a groundbreaking example of elastic design where a product rearranges itself in response to its user.

Check out the article in the Wall Street Journal here: GENERATION .

Stop by SR Hughes to test drive the Generation chair:

Congenial Company

September 7, 2011

This recent shoot of an apartment in Chicago appears in the August issue of Interior Design Magazine.  The article’s header reads, “Three centuries of art and design keep congenial company in the Chicago apartment of Gensler’s Carlos Martínez.”

If you click the photo above, you’ll get to view a great sideshow of this beautiful apartment.  But, before you go … a few things to note.

Pay attention to the artful of mixing classic modern, contemporary and 19th Century influences (in furniture, in art, and architecture).  It’s a beautiful, elegant, and livable space!

The architectural details have been restored, but it involved removing “decades of fusty upgrades to remove to get back to the 3,000-square-foot apartment’s original interior.”  Now, you can see marvelous details such as the plaster detail on the ceiling … peacefully coexisting with a Mies van der Rohe day bed and Le Corbusier LC2 chair!

The owners have been “collecting art over the past 20 years-the kind of modern and contemporary work most often imagined in stripped-down, crisp white environs. The transition would call for back-to-square-one strategizing and the subtle manipulation of everything from the floor plan to the finishes.”  Certainly, Martinez’s professional life as a designer helps pull this all together seamlessly.

I’ll let you in on a little secret … most of the furniture and lighting could have been sourced right here in Tulsa (hello, SR Hughes)!  Whether you know how to pull it together yourself (you don’t need any design degree) or if you put that trust in a professionally trained eye … SR Hughes works every day with both homeowners and designers alike.  Its easy!  And, wherever you need an extra hand, you can hire the contractor, the art dealer, and everything else you need to pull off your own masterpiece … right here in your own city.

Take a tour through this lovely home and dream a little … then get to work on realizing your own vision … the place you relax in, entertain in, laugh, love, and live in.  Tailor it specifically for you and how you live, then settle in and enjoy living — beautifully!
