editor’s letter

Style isn’t just about the way you dress or decorate your home, or about the things you choose to buy. Right now, I’m inspired by people who live fearlessly and with confidence, whether it’s launching a business or defining their career with a new visual language. They teach us so much by welcoming us into their homes/spaces/offices, and we become friends in the process. Like our cover stars, Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone, whose path from creative directors to interior designers to product designers is a model for anyone setting out to make his or her name in design. Their new line of furniture is a not-to-be-missed riot of cool colors and shapes that feel of the moment, accessible, and entirely customizable. In our entertaining section, we bring to life a…

SEAMED AND SEWN Originally from Kentucky, the Queens, New York–based fiber artist Natalie Baxter found her calling young. “Quilting reminds me of my grandmother, who grew up in Appalachia,” she says. One of her better-known installations, Warm Guns, is a wall of quilted rifles made with recycled cloth, tassels, and spandex that confronts ideas around masculinity and violence using traditionally feminine materials.
