editor’s letter

“I’ve spent my career putting together settings for others, but rarely do I get to do it for myself.”—Joseph Dirand These may be the words of influential French designer Joseph Dirand, but virtually every interior designer, architect, and landscape designer we work with says pretty much the same thing; it seems that the cobbler often has no shoes, or they may be somewhat ill-fitting! Dirand’s extraordinary Paris flat is featured this month, and he indulged what he understatedly calls his “taste for details” by crafting the low-key-but-luxe space precisely to his liking; serendipitously, he even had massive blocks of marble in storage, “waiting for the right moment.” How gratifying for AD to be invited to document that moment! In fact, this issue show-cases creatives of all stripes in their own environments.…

Nothing like the pressure of a deadline to get the creative juices flowing. At least that was the case for designer-couple Tobia and Afra Scarpa, who received an urgent call from furniture maestro Cesare Cassina in November 1969: Could the Italian architect—son of a famous architect father, Carlo—and his wife come up with a radical new sofa in time for the Cologne trade show in January? The Scarpas set to the task, inspired to use the material of the moment, expanding polyurethane. They proposed a seat at its most rudimentary. “At the beginning, the workers did not understand that the leather covering was not supposed to be taut … but to appear like a soft, creased fabric curled around this soft mass and held together by a sort of giant metal spring,”…

The Manhattan ballrooms that became pillars of the Gilded Age are few and far between these days. (Temple Emanu-El now occupies the site of Mrs. Astor’s legendary one.) But on the second floor of a Beaux Arts building uptown, one grand salon serves as home to Remy Renzullo, a decorator with a soft spot for aristocratic interiors. While the space’s scale has not quite survived—it was carved into apartments long ago—its ambience remains, with lofty ceilings and original stained glass. There are few better suited to occupy the one-bedroom than Renzullo. Though still in his 20s, he is an old soul, with a hush-hush clientele that might well have been pulled from The Four Hundred, were the society record still around. (He is currently decorating residences for art-world scion Al Acquavella…

sea change

When Laurance Rockefeller happened upon a crescent of untouched coast on Virgin Gorda some 60 years ago, the American philanthropist set about creating Little Dix Bay—a hotel that would come to embody unfussy luxury in harmony with nature, attracting the likes of Queen Elizabeth II. Five years ago, the property (a Rosewood resort since 1993) enlisted the New York design firm Meyer Davis to shepherd a renovation of the rooms. But after Hurricane Irma struck the British Virgin Islands in 2017, what was meant to be a light refresh pivoted to a holistic rebuild. Though the iconic dining pavilion—its distinctive conical roofs inspired by swaying palms—survived, the property’s guest accommodations were all but destroyed. Today, Meyer Davis has faithfully re-created Rockefeller’s vision, maintaining the footprints of the original structures, among…
