samuel & sons chevallerie by timothy corrigan

Created by world-renowned interior designer Timothy Corrigan for Samuel & Sons, the Chevallerie collection is inspired by 18th-century documentary trimmings and successfully marries European grandeur with a modern aesthetic. Named after Corrigan’s 18th-century Château de La Chevallerie, located on the northern border of France’s Loire Valley, the collection employs intricate elements, highly complex weave structures, and a mélange of sophisticated hues, which are composed of several rich traditional combinations balanced by the subtle mix of 21st-century palettes. In his projects around the globe, Corrigan carefully mixes furnishings, art, and design from different periods to create spaces that are interesting, beautifully appointed, and inviting. “I think that when you have disparate items in very different styles, there’s a tension that’s created,” he said. “Whether you’re mixing new and old, expensive and inexpensive,…

editor’s letter

“The apartment is serene and quiet, not jumpy. Things reveal themselves to you slowly.”—Designer Michael S. Smith In the October issue AD trains our spotlight on fresh forces in the design world. To that end we present a memorable San Francisco project by just-under-the-radar California designer Charles de Lisle, whose singular, hard-to-pin-down vision (haute hippie craft meets international high design—with a playful twist!) will surely catapult him to new heights in the field. Gabriel Hendifar and Jeremy Anderson, the talented duo behind the buzzy NYC lighting firm Apparatus, are well known in the industry but not yet household names outside it. So it is a distinct pleasure to share the specific, theatrical, and frankly sexy taste manifested in their New York City loft. Elsewhere in the magazine is a special section…

pure and simple

In 1930, little-known American architect Philip Johnson asked cutting-edge German talent Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to design his New York City apartment. Mies was busy: He had just erected the Barcelona Pavilion, completed Villa Tugendhat, and been named the director of the Bauhaus. But he accepted what was more or less an interior-decorating commission, as an opportunity to employ some of his newly minted furniture designs Stateside. The project, it turned out, would render yet another Miesian icon, its given name as no-nonsense as its form: Couch. The sleek piece—a hand-tufted cowhide cushion and single cylindrical bolster laid on an African-mahogany platform with tubular steel legs—was wildly useful in the small apartment. “It’s an extremely simple way of delineating space,” explains Paul Galloway, MoMA’s collection specialist, architecture and design. “It could sit…

world of: jake gyllenhaal

When you’re in the business of producing movies, television, and theater, you understand the importance of establishing the right mise-en-scène. Just ask Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker, founding partners of the New York City–based production company Nine Stories. Established in 2015 and named after J. D. Salinger’s 1953 anthology of short fiction, Nine Stories specializes in what Marker describes as “provocative, character-driven material that emphasizes both quality and commercial appeal.” The company’s offices are located in a SoHo apartment that was recently transformed by the AD100 firm Ashe + Leandro. “We wanted to have a sense of play in the design. It’s a place where filmmakers and artists can feel empowered to be open, inventive, and collaborative,” Gyllenhaal says. Partners Ariel Ashe and Reinaldo Leandro responded with a design scheme that…

walk on the wild side

Think Tony Duquette, and certain images spring instantly to mind. Folding screens spattered with giant sunbursts. A coffered ceiling made of plastic serving trays. Chandeliers laden with glistening abalone shells. Then there’s the gilded biomorphic console table that resembles, depending on one’s vantage point, a writhing sea creature or a roller coaster on Mars. Call it Space Age Baroque—and, according to Duquette’s most ardent fans, it’s the kind of overegging that the world is ready for. “We’re entering a maximalist epoch, and Tony is a maximalist icon,” exults Hutton Wilkinson, a designer of interiors and jewelry who was Duquette’s longtime business partner and has been the keeper of his 24K-gold flame since the latter’s death in 1999, at the age of 85. Sister companies Pearson and Maitland-Smith are in full agreement.…
