grounded by harmony

Known for his unparalleled taste and classical sensibility, designer Michael S. Smith set out to create a collection of rugs that otherwise would not exist—each handmade with patina and designed to work across a variety of styles. Subtle in color and pattern, elements of fantasy and nature are present throughout reflecting clouds, starry nights, sound waves and urban landscapes. Smith, a client of Mansour owner Benjamin Soleimani for nearly 25 years, collaborated to create a unique collection with dimension and character—all achieved through artisanship. Made from a blend of silk and oxidized wool and hand-knotted in Jaipur by master weavers, the end result is purely textural. Dimension and different levels of pile create rugs that are as tactile as they are beautiful. Each works across a variety of design styles—from the…

the new (and improved) a-list

I HAVE COME TO REALIZE THAT INTERIOR DESIGNERS often play many roles beyond mere decorating. For instance, it’s not unusual during the course of a typical renovation or build for a designer to also be expected to act as a wedding planner, a fashion stylist, a marriage counselor, a child psychiatrist, and occasionally (if they are handy enough) a plumber. As I wrote in my foreword to the upcoming book by talent extraordinaire Estee Stanley—a new addition to our A-List—for a designer, wearing many hats is a way of life. And that, my friends, is how I describe the criteria behind ELLE DECOR’s A-List, now 10 years in and going strong. What distinguishes our registry from the rest is that it’s not a snob list—these aren’t the kind of professionals…

silk-screen goddesses

THE MALE GAZE IN ART is controversial in the age of #MeToo, but then again, Andy Warhol was never your prototypical male artist. Indeed, “Warhol Women,” a new survey of his portraits at New York’s Lévy Gorvy gallery (through June 15), opens with a series of Christopher Makos photographs of “Lady Warhol”—the artist himself, in drag. “You realize he’s not hamming it up,” says gallery cofounder Brett Gorvy. “His love of women is sincere. He idealized them.” All kinds are represented in this stunning survey of Warhol’s halftone silk-screen portraits from the early 1960s through the 1980s. One wall showcases images of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, including Red Jackie, his iconic 1964 work based on a photograph taken right before her husband’s assassination. Another Warhol obsession, Marilyn Monroe, is represented in…

making his mark

WHEN IT COMES TO creating enticing merchandise displays, Mark Cunningham is no novice. He worked in retail for a decade in the 1990s as a vice president of creative services for Ralph Lauren, then cofounded the influential home-design boutique March with Sam Hamilton in San Francisco. Cunningham has since become an ED A-List decorator with a luxurious but understated style that draws on classic Americana, and clients ranging from fashion designer Francisco Costa to Edie Parker’s Brett Heyman. Now Cunningham is starting his own brand, appropriately named Marked, with a by-appointment showroom on New York’s West 37th Street and newly launched collections of furniture and fabrics. “My interior design work varies from client to client,” he says. “With Marked, I can bring everything together.” Each season Cunningham will arrange the showroom’s vignettes…
