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.

One Great Piece

January 28, 2010

Once upon a time people saved for what they wanted, a valid if antiquated concept.  Especially for young people just starting out in their home, purchasing a few significant pieces of furniture or a rug and adding to them over time is a good plan. Too often, people are driven by price when selecting items for their interiors. They end up with rooms full of things that are flimsy, faddish, and unacceptable after a few years. Classic design, whether contemporary or traditional, is just that, classic. Taking into account a little wear, it will look as good fifty years from now as it does today. But looking good is not enough; you need superior craftsmanship and materials if your money is to be well spent. Your sofa won’t last long if it isn’t tied eight ways underneath all its sumptuous fabric. Although there is a trend today toward inexpensive throw-away style, you will be better served by stashing your money under your mattress and waiting until you can afford something timeless in design, carefully made and of the best quality.

Gear up for Knoll’s Annual Sale September 23 – October 1, 2011!
