editor’s letter

Every Sunday in the winter growing up, my brother, twin sister, and I would beg my father to light the large stone fireplace that connected the big family room we called “the den” with our Pierre Frey–wallpapered kitchen. We loved taking turns with the various jobs: hauling the carrier outside for the logs, rolling up last weekend’s New York Times into tight batons, piling the wood in formation, and carefully striking the long matches to start the flames. It’s a ritual that brought everyone together, and—I have to say—I still make a pretty mean fire. It’s perhaps not surprising, then, that when I was renovating my home in Greenwich Village, I was very focused on getting the mantel and fireplace surround right. Our prewar apartment was designed by my friend, architect…

Right now I’m in the middle of Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History by Dan Flores. RECENT ADVENTURE A design pilgrimage to Sweden.

custom is key

Stainless steel appliances have had their moment. Enter the new and beautifully customizable Café Matte Collection, which promises an elevated twist on personalized style. Together with her designer, Sarah Sherman Samuel, Garance Doré is transforming her kitchen into a serene oasis, complete with matte white appliances that complement the creativeʼs signature aesthetic. We caught up with Samuel to get a sneak peek of her vision and how Café Appliancesʼs customizable finishes and hardware options emulate Doréʼs personal style in her new Los Angeles home. Domino: What was the inspiration behind your decision to opt for an all-white, matte finish for the kitchen?

foam home

TAKE A SEAT Danish artist Ulrik Weck turned to polystyrene boards and nozzle-ejected polyurethane foam after growing “frustrated with the flat surface of the canvas,” he says. Now his artistic process is almost akin to cake making; he cuts the boards into layers and then “frosts” them together with foam. Eventually, the sculptures began to take the shape of furniture, culminating in a pair of monochromatic armchairs that he titled No Sleep. Explains Weck: “I didn’t want a chair in the studio that I could fall asleep in.” Soft Gray Flamingo by Ulrik Weck matterandshape.com BLOCK IT OUT South Korean designer Sang Hoon Kim was searching for a “freer and more intuitive design language” in which to craft his sculptural furniture when he turned to an unexpected source for inspiration: the flexible foam factory…

the domino guide to your best sleep ever

BedSide Beautiees Whether you’re a fan of everything sleek and chic or all about more is more, have these essentials in reach to snooze in style. THE MINIMALIST THE COLOR LOVER ANATOMY OF A SLEEP OASIS Ready to turn your bedroom into the ultimate zen den this winter? Here’s your road map. AN ANALOG ALARM CLOCK You’ve probably already realized the downsides of leaving your phone on your bedside table—middle-of-the-night Insta-scrolling, for one—but a digital clock can also be problematic. “Its light disrupts circadian rhythms,” says Jan Stritzke, deputy medical director of Germany’s Lanserhof Tegernsee health spa. Leave the phone in the kitchen and invest in an old-fashioned big-hand, little-hand clock. Bonus if there’s no snooze button. DIMMER SWITCHES Low light signals the body that it’s time to power down, and nothing delivers a warm, moody glow better than…
