Rye Turns Two

The saying “time flies when you’re having fun” could not hold more true for Rye Snayd. His smile and laughter is what keeps the studio going when times get hectic, and we could not be more proud of him as he grows into the happiest kid around. We recently had the pleasure of taking some time away from the studio to celebrate little man’s second year of life. Here are some of our favorite moments of the evening, captured by Izzy Hudgins Photography.

ICFF 2014 Recap: Organic Modernism

Another ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) is in the books and we had a blast meeting with new and familiar designers alike. With dozens of aisles of furniture, lighting, and textiles from all over the world, it seems hard to believe that you would find a common theme between most. However, as we trekked the “design globe” that is the famed Jacob K Javits Center, we realized that a common thread does, in fact, connect the hundreds of exhibitors: organic modernism. Clean, smooth lines with round forms and bulbous shapes, this year’s curation took a departure from the strong lines of modern design and went back to its (organic) roots. Take a look at a few of our favorite examples of how designers are abandoning the straight edge and embracing the curve: Clockwise from top left: 1.

Project Breakdown: Sofia

If you’ve been following the buzz recently, we just revealed our latest downtown project that houses a New York-native family of four. Having shared the youngest daughter’s territory in the shared third floor loft, this week we’re giving you a tour of Sofia’s room: a French-inspired space with pale hues and sophisticated pops of pattern. As with the rest of the house, Sofia’s room was originally painted a traditional Earth-tone with dark floors that swallowed up the space. With a hushed palette of tone-on-tone neutrals and playful patterns, this room went from dreary to dreamy. 1. Keep your bed from feeling boxed in with open side tables from Arteriors. The alternating glass and mirrored shelves allow you to see right through the antiquated iron frame, perfect for placing next to an adjacent wallpaper or window treatment without obstructing the view. 2. Ro Sham Beaux’s tall Patricia Table Lamp gives a stately presence to an otherwise…

High Point Market Finds: Lighting

The team travelled to High Point, NC this week to see the latest industry offerings in furnishings, lighting, and decor. While one of the best reasons to go to market is to wine and dine with design representatives from around the globe, we also managed to snap a few photos of products we look forward to use in projects to come.  Today we’re shedding light on our favorite finds at market with the top table lamps, hanging fixtures, and wall sconces: Clockwise from top left: 1.

Mantle Mantra

With all this talk of a “Southern Freeze”, we have our minds wandering to warmer places. What better way to catch up on good conversation and even better company than around an open fire? Take a look through some of our favorite fireplace settings to date and learn a few tricks on how to turn your hearth into something worth bragging about. We pulled home accessories that bring out the deep violet tones of the ceramic tile surround. Offset dark hues with a tertiary color like this subtle mint green to keep the space looking fresh. Go bold with a stark white mantle, bringing pops of color in through a surround or dark hearth. The stacked fireplaces in this historic downtown home left this room with a quirky, off-center surround. We then played off this asymmetry by centering the mirror to the actual opening and filled the empty…
