WHEN I FIRST MET THE ACTRESS AND activist Sophia Bush at designer Kathryn Ireland’s Santa Monica, California, nest a few years ago, I was impressed by her love of design, which showed through in everything from her passion for collecting to a deep knowledge of architectural history. (Her throaty laugh and infectious warmth were also draws, but that’s another story.) You might know Sophia from TV shows like One Tree Hill, Chicago P.D., and This Is Us; she is also a tireless advocate for women’s and environmental rights. And I was thrilled to learn that she was launching a design firm, Filles Des Rincón, with her friend Lauren McGrady. So we hatched a plan: What if ED teamed up with Sophia on her first design project, a midcentury guesthouse next…

EVER WONDER WHAT ELOISE would be like as a 30something in New York City? Still living at the Plaza hotel, in a room on the “tippy-top floor,” no doubt. This question was foremost when designer Sasha Bikoff was chosen by ELLE DECOR to reimagine the iconic Rose Club, which overlooks the Plaza’s lobby and has been a venue for performances by the likes of Bob Hope and Liza Minnelli. The pop-up ELLE DECOR Café is where a grown-up Eloise might come for drinks with her friends. “This is where she’d be hanging out,” Bikoff says of the café, which debuted in December and will be open through March 31. Bikoff, a Manhattan interior designer who landed on ED’s A-List for the first time last summer, grew up going to the Plaza…

AT THE LAUNCH OF THE new Tiffany & Co. men’s collection at the Hollywood Athletic Club, the actor Jeff Goldblum showed up with a bejeweled Schlumberger pin attached to his tuxedo’s lapel (“It’s an important piece, plus I like any name that starts with shla—like schlimazel,” he joked). Justin Theroux went minimalist in a classic gold chain (“It’s become more OK for men to adorn themselves,” he said). And then there was the rapper A$AP Ferg, who piled it on with multiple ropes of Tiffany pearls—and a hairdo in trademark Tiffany blue to match. Eat your heart out, Audrey Hepburn: At the launch party—which also featured a Tiffany-blue pool table and a display of sports trophies made at the iconic American luxury brand’s Rhode Island workshop—men were now wearing the…

Your new documentary, Hollywood’s Architect: The Paul R. Williams Story, aired in February on PBS. How long did you spend on it? RR: Quite a few years. The enthusiasm was incredible. Every person who heard Paul’s story stopped and listened, and their eyes lit up. In 1923, Paul Revere Williams had the distinction of being the first black architect to gain membership in the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Would you say the industry has improved in terms of representation since then? RR: Yes, but only slightly. It’s something that the industry is finally waking up to. The percentage of African American members of the AIA is very low, but they are taking steps to address it with membership and mentoring programs. They helped to support this documentary along with the National Organization of Minority Architects. Despite…

British designer Julian Chichester injects a delightful Alice in Wonderland topsy-turvy spirit into this whimsical Rosa Trolley cart, shown in a Teal Vellum finish. As sweet and irresistible as candy—without the calories or toothache—these Thomas Fuchs Creative drinking vessels are handblown by glass artisans in Murano, Italy. A winged piece of saddle hide wraps around the back of this jacquard-upholstered Angie armchair from Minotti, reminiscent of the cinched, sculpted form of a corset. Scalloped black lines and gold-leaf accents give this white ceramic Faith table lamp from Mitzi by Hudson Valley Lighting an Art Deco glamour. A trip to Rajasthan prompted Italian designer Matteo Cibic’s new collection of rugs, entitled Wunderkammer (a reference to mid-16th-century cabinets of curiosities), for the socially minded Indian brand Jaipur Rugs. The wool-and-viscose hand-tufted carpets are made by a…
