While the world keeps changing, that fact will never change. In the months leading up to April, muted tones seem to follow us everywhere. I’ve never been shy about my penchant for a preponderance of color, no matter the season, which is why ELLE DECOR is anything but beige. (To the minimalists…

creative force

LAST NOVEMBER, THE Black Artists + Designers Guild launched to much fanfare in the design world. Founded by Brooklyn-based ceramist and rug designer Malene Barnett, the BAD Guild (as its members affectionately call it) is a directory of black creatives, including artists, architects, interior designers, and artisans. As a person of color, Barnett explains, she has struggled to get her work noticed—and many black colleagues had a similar experience. “We want to be part of the industry and the conversation, and to be recognized and respected for our contributions to art and design,” Barnett says. Indeed, BAD immediately struck a chord: Since its launch, 77 members have signed up, including interior designers Sheila Bridges, Joy Moyler, Rayman Boozer, and Leyden Lewis; furniture designer Jomo Tariku; and artist Lisa Hunt.While both…

An outdoor chair designed by Jens Risom from DWR’s Block Island collection.What’s your favorite piece from DWR’s spring collection?JE: It has to be the Sommer seating, and we had the pleasure of working on it with Danish designer Chris Halstrøm. She designed a 10-piece outdoor line and wound up achieving a new design goal: taking woven seating outdoors.What’s the secret?JE: A miracle synthetic fiber that, when buffed, mimics the look and feel of paper cord but holds up to rain. It’s also very comfortable.What else are you working on?JE: We’re bringing to life old sketches by the late Jens Risom of outdoor furniture that was never realized.We’re also doing another outdoor collection designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.How tall are you?JE: Six feet, four inches.What’s the best sofa for a…

fifth l’avenue

The dining room at L’Avenue, the new restaurant at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. Le Chalet bar and lounge.Every city in Europe has at least one celebrity-magnet restaurant. In Rome, it’s Dal Bolognese; in London, Chiltern Firehouse; and in Paris, it’s Jean-Louis Coste’s L’Avenue. An applauded hot spot, that chic eatery has been a draw for the likes of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. In February, for the first time, L’Avenue opened an outpost outside France, on the eighth and ninth floors at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City. Philippe Starck, who designed the version originale, created a distinct look for each of the floors, which are connected by a staircase. On floor eight is Le Chalet, a den of dim light, log beams sourced in Europe, and warm…
