editor’s letter

“There was lots of freestyling and trial and error in the decorating. The process was very improvisational, lıke making music.”—Lenny KravitzSo often the story of a house is really the story of a place. In this, AD’s annual travel issue, the sense of place is strong, starting with coverstar musician and designer Lenny Kravitz at the 1,000-acre, 18th-century Brazilian coffee plantation he has been renovating and freshening for nearly a decade. Kravitz tells writer Mayer Rus that his first visit to the sprawling property turned into a six-month stay. “I learned to ride horses from the cowboys, learned about farming, and reconnected with nature. This farm, this land, they have a life force of their own.” As for American entrepreneur Chris Burch, he dreamed of an apartment on the rue…

homage to the chair

1. LUTECA’S NEWLY MINTED BUTAQUE IN THE MEXICO CITY HOME OF GALLERIST BETTINA KIEHNLE.2. CLARA PORSET CIRCA 1952.3. TWO PORSET-STYLE BUTAQUES IN THE LIBRARY OF THE AMERICAN TRADE HOTEL.4. AN ORIGINAL PORSET BUTAQUE CHAIR FROM 1950.5. A BUTAQUE BENCH IN LUIS BARRÁGAN’S MEXICO CITY HOME/STUDIO; INTERIORS DESIGNED IN COLLABORATION WITH PORSET.After moving to Mexico in the mid-1930s, Cuban designer Clara Porset began researching the furniture of the region—and one low wooden chair captured her interest.The butaque, a Colonial-era hybrid of Spanish X-frame chairs and pre-Columbian ritual duhos, appeared in late–16th century Venezuela and proliferated across trade routes from New Orleans to Havana. When the port city of Campeche, Mexico, became a hub of production, the seat made its way to the U.S., where it was called the Campeche (or Campeachy)…

1. THE COUPLE IN DECISION MODE.2. MAQUETTES FOR THE NEW DOLLS CHAIRS. 3. THE FLORAL OPTION. 4. THE 2015 CONCERTINA LIGHT BY RAW-EDGES FOR LOUIS VUITTON’S OBJETS NOMADES COLLECTION. 5. ITS COMPLEMENTARY CONCERTINA CHAIR. 6. MY SHELF, A 2017 OBJETS NOMADES PIECE BY THE DUO.Few award-winning designers would compare their latest creations to a classic children’s toy, but Shay Alkalay and Yael Mer of Raw-Edges have always possessed a certain insouciant genius. Think of the husband-and-wife team’s wall-mounted cabinet for Arco that folds open like a toolbox. Or the cork pendant light for Materia Amorim that allows consumers to attach homemade paper shades with pushpins. Then there are the dyed-wood stools that sprout from the floor of the Duke of Devonshire’s sculpture gallery at Chatsworth. At last month’s Salone del…

up at the villa

Each house is a story,” says the dashing antiques dealer Grégoire Vermesse. When he and his wife, Alexandrine, a decorative artist for the likes of AD100 interior designer Jacques Garcia, lived in France, their house had been constructed during the reign of Louis XVI, so that’s how it was decorated. During a sojourn in Sweden, they settled in a Gustavian residence and honored that stylistic lead when it came to the rooms. For nearly a decade now, though, the Vermesses—joined by their teenage son, Ambroise, a champion show jumper—have lived not far from the baroque Sicilian city of Noto, amid rolling hills where principesse once escaped the summer heat.“It was a five-or six-degree temperature difference,” Grégoire explains of the area, called San Corrado di Fuori. Their circa-1830 villa, two stories…
