ABOUT SIX YEARS AGO, I was on assignment in Italy, working on a story about bronze sculptor and jewelry designer Osanna Visconti di Modrone’s sprawling palazzo in Milan. It wasn’t my first time in the city, but I had been there only a handful of times and it was still a mystery to me. Paris, its closest match (as far as design and fashion are concerned) and where I had lived for a time during high school and college, this wasn’t. The Brutalist architecture was forbidding, the restaurants were hidden, and despite one grand hotel (the Principe di Savoia), everything except the boutiques that lined Via Montenapoleone, Milan’s answer to Madison Avenue, seemed closed off to tourists. Far from the Baroque splendor and dolce vita that is Rome, as I…

IRAKLI ZARIA Zaria recently visited Morocco’s “blue city” of Chefchaouen, and the hue is prevalent in a London apartment he designed (page 116). But it’s the daughter’s pink bedroom that he loves the most: “There’s something wonderfully naive about it.” LIZZY GOODMAN Writer Goodman speaks with her longtime friend Ariel Ashe about her home in Connecticut on page 148. “I’m taken by how thoughtful her style is,” Goodman says. “She makes fun of me for having too much useless stuff!” JACOBA URIST Writer Urist was impressed by designer Timothy Corrigan’s approach to the art-filled home on page 140. “Often, collectors feel they must mimic a whitebox gallery,” she says, “but Corrigan has designed the antithesis of that.” LINDSEY ADELMAN Adelman’s lighting designs are both industrial and organic, and her Brooklyn home, featured on page 132, is full…

CLAY GUY “It’s so much work finding lamps with charisma,” says designer David Netto, who combined his need for good lighting with his passion for 1950s ceramics when he collaborated with artist Jennifer Nocon in 2017 on a collection of table lamps whose handmade bases were inspired by Nigerian Kuba cloth. Their sophomore effort takes cues from Picasso’s pottery shapes and features extraterrestrial surface patterns. The resulting creations are sold numbered, edition-style, like the works of art they are. davidnettodesign.com 3, LAMPS, SAMPLES: STUART TYSON/STUDIO D…

Let’s get lyrical. Mixing the old and the new isn’t exactly novel, but to look modern and cool, the balance has to be right. Consider the contrast between old-world grandeur and sculptural, contemporary pieces—it creates an irreverent glamour that is oh so covetable. The pop of a graphic, minimal chaise longue or the punch of an evocative modern art piece loosens up a potentially stuffy (yet majestic) interior. It’s like wearing jeans with your Chanel jacket or a T-shirt with diamonds: The combination of their opposite natures creates a new, highly individual look that provides the perfect blend of then and now.

NEW YORK HOME IS WHERE THE HEALTH IS TRAINER AND FITNESS EXPERT DENNIS REMORCA BELIEVES A BEAUTIFUL ROOM HELPS MAKE THE WORKOUT. Earlier this year, in an article titled “The Dumb-Bell Economy” about millennials’ investment in their physiques, the Financial Times queried, “Has the gym become the new pub?” If so, there would be no prettier place to pump iron than Remorca Fitness, whose two discreetly chic Upper East Side locations for private training sessions feature decorative details like whitewashed herringbone flooring and marble walls. “The atmosphere you create is your culture—it shouldn’t feel like a gym,” says founder Dennis Remorca. The decor of his two studios has made such an impression on his art gallerist, oligarch, and financial titan clientele that some of them have enlisted him to design the facilities in…
