I love it, but my house isn’t modern

July 25, 2011

I’ve worked for SR Hughes for ten years and I can’t tell you how many times I have heard “I love it, but my house isn’t modern.”  I think that if you love it, it doesn’t matter.

I love it, but it’s too modern

Your mother’s grandfather clock and Heriz carpet can look beautiful next to your more contemporary pieces.

I love it, but it’s too modern.

I love this bedroom with  mirrored side tables, glass lamps and such a beautiful color palate.  The Ingo Maurer’s Zettle’z fixture, Kartell‘s Louis Ghost Chair and FLOS Kevlin Table Lamp feel right at home with their more traditional counterparts.

I love it, but it’s too modern.

What’s not to love here.  You can almost hear the warm laughter of a family gathering in this inviting dining room.

Love, it’s a funny thing.  I guess what they say is true, sometimes opposites attract.

Visit SR Hughes at Center 1— we’ll help you find the perfect mix for the way you want to live.

Hello From Milano

April 16, 2011

As usual, its been action packed.  The past 36 hours we’ve been, as my friend Stacie says, blowin-and-goin.

However … we’ve had time to stop and smell the roses.

The B&B/Maxalto factory tour was amazing … looks like they’re going to build you a car rather than a sofa.  No pics from there … super secret, but I’ll show you the fruits of their methods in the coming days … lots of great ideas.

Kartell‘s booth was fantastic … fun energy and ideas …

…and plenty of freshness for Tulsa in a mere few weeks!

Dinner courtesy of Alias and Giorgetti at Trattoria Arlati … crazy good as usual!

Excited to see Alias under original ownership and ready to meet the USA all over again!  The Manzu chair taken for the first time from a prototype of a sports car seat from 1967 is pure Italian style … with substance:

Brilliant lighting … Flos steals the show!

And tomorrow, its a scoot South to Tolentino to see the craftsmanship of Poltrona Frau:

So if you’re looking for me … you’re likely to see this as a blur because there’s still plenty to do before I fly on home!

Stay tuned … more to come!

Salone Sit Down

April 13, 2011

I have to say, that after a day of running hither and yon, it feels good to take a seat.

Some favorites from the day …

Denny from Giorgetti:

High back or low.  With ottoman or without.  Seemingly Scandinavian influence, but detailed in Canaletto walnut as only Giorgetti can.  Supremely comfortable.  Warm style.

Then, Mobius caught my eye, so I gave it a try…

Saddle leather with zigzag stitching stretched as structure over the frame.  A sculptural walnut set of gams and this is one handsome seat.  I think it becomes a flat-out show stopper when it grows up to become a wing chair:

And finally (nobody can resist) you can relax at the end of a long day at the Salone with a glass of Prosecco at the bar in a Philippe Starck bar stool from Kartell…  My Ghost barstool prayers have been answered!

That’s all for now … Off to Zona Tortona tomorrow to investigate what’s shakin down by the Navigli!  Stay tuned!

Giorgetti Lifestyle

April 27, 2009


Giorgetti is once again a standout during the International Milan Furniture Show in 2009.  The pavillion displays an inspiring example of refined comfort and precision with the unmistakable Giorgetti soul.  There are references to the past:  re-interpretations of existing designs as in Mosca’s Progetti chairs or Pascia sofa.  Quiet elegance abounds in the bedroom, dressing, and closet space all from Chi Wing Lo.  And finally, desks emerge from the solid foundation Massimo Scolari’s Zeno design some 15 years ago to the amazing Erasmo desk today.  Truly, Giorgetti shows attention to detail, luxury, and quality like no other.
