NY Times T Mag: A Fine Mess

December 15, 2012

Check out this recent photo shoot in designer Julia Muggenburg’s London townhouse.  Who says you have to pare back your style to include Modern or contemporary furniture?  In fact, the wild layering of Julia’s place feels more at home to me.  In fact, a Barcelona chair or daybed seem right at home here.  A powder blue LC or Cappellini’s Proust chair … art of course!  Click the photo to take a tour of this wonderful space, crack a smile, and imagine what it would be like to live here.

New Classics

August 30, 2012

Get a handle on what will survive the test of style now and in the future.  The New York Times interviewed several contemporary furniture experts asking what designs produced since 2000 would still be on the style radar in 2050?  Several answers are available right here at SR Hughes

Pictured top down are Kartell’s Ghost chair and Bourgie lamp, B&B Italia’s Metropolitan Chair, and Tom Dixon’s Beat Lights.  We invite you to stop in and find all of these NY Times picks, or choose from hundreds of other innovative ideas to find your own future classic.

Tom Dixon Makes Things Better

May 5, 2012

Get a load of this article recently published in the Wall Street Journal.  I love how Tom Dixon’s DIY attitude started him along the way … creativity and experimentation keep it all humming along today.  Authentic ideas and curiosity … I think that is why there is an exciting vibe about the Tom Dixon brand …

The release of Stamp lights and candle holders at this spring’s Salone del Mobile in Milan gives us more than an object to point at and say “cool.”  It spurs us to imagine a world in which high tech industrial technology may even allow a small local shop to custom design and produce goods for clients as they wait.  Take a look …

Bright Ideas

April 14, 2012

This little ditty from your friends at NY Times T Magazine is fertilizer for your brain to guarantee a spring-y spring!  The right light is so often overlooked, but it’s as important as good soil to a beautiful garden. The key to making your space sing!

One thing your friends at T Mag didn’t know … Roll & Hill, Foscarini, and Kartell are only three of the dozen lighting brands available at SR Hughes.  Right here in little ‘ol Oklahoma!

When you have the help of the world’s best lighting designers behind you … it’s one of the easiest decisions to make.

For a fresh perspective on how to make your garden glow (yes, there are plenty of outdoor lights too), stop into our Tulsa showroom at Center 1, 35th & Peoria.

Office Space

March 24, 2012

“Daylight, lots of it, is indispensable. Chance encounters yield creative energy. And mobility is essential.”

Designing space, whether for work or home, and considering how it affects you … seems to me a necessary part of the approach.  I loved this recent New York Times article partly for the beautiful visuals from the Gates Foundation in Seattle, but also because of the ideas behind why they chose to build what they did … for the people who inhabit it.

Whether you’re changing the furniture arrangement in your living room, adding a desk lamp in your office, or building clean from the ground up … consider how rooms and architecture affect mood and creativity.

AD Discovers Masters

January 21, 2012

Architectural Digest calls out Kartell’s Masters chair as one of the best in style and design for August 2011.

Fantastic!  Thanks AD!

Indoors or out, these comfortable seats playfully combine three iconic midcentury classics into one elegant sculpture.

Come take a test drive at SR Hughes.  And, through March 19th you can save on Masters and all things Kartell during the Spring Sale!

Ingo Maurer: Super Natural!

October 5, 2011

Did you read the New York Times this weekend?  The amazing wizard of lighting design, Ingo Maurer, had a fantastic project published there!  This kind of artistry is exactly why we feel honored to represent Ingo here in little ‘ol Oklahoma.  Click the photo below to view a slide show of this fantastic light sculpture and read more about it.

Though amazing commissioned projects play a key note in Ingo Maurer’s repertoire, one needn’t live in an 19th Century home with its own private cathedral to own a piece of his light-artwork.  Production pieces start at $175 … visit the SR Hughes showroom (Center 1 in Tulsa) to find out more!

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:
