The Voorhes Adam and Robin met how many creatives meet: on set. With each new joint assignment, their abilities complemented and amplified the strengths of the other. After several years of collaboration, they officially joined forces. On their first wedding anniversary, they decided to stop working independently and become the Voorhes (the name is grammatically incorrect, but the plural version is one S too many). That was more than 10 years ago. Since then they have brainstormed, sketched, built, and photographed things for editorial and commercial clients including Popular Science, Wired, Fortune, O Magazine, GQ, Bacardi, and Jell-O. Annie Duke Annie Duke is an author and experienced corporate speaker and consultant on the behavior of decision making. In 2018, her book Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the…

editor’s letter

Between hosting for 20 and trying to appease toddlers and grandparents and everyone in between, there’s the joy of gift giving. And actually, that is fun. There’s nothing like seeing the face of the ones you love turn from excitement and curiosity to thrill and delight once they uncover the perfectly chosen gift you have thoughtfully acquired—something they never knew they wanted and would never buy for themselves. At least, that’s the plan. When I was editing the British edition of Robb Report, we asked notable critic and author Stephen Bayley for his take on the whole present business, because it can be a vexatious subject. His response was that he once bought his wife a chain saw because he hoped it “cleverly advertised my sophisticated and revolutionary approach to sex-based…

an interiors playground in miami

If you’re into design, art, or chic parties under the auspices of both, you already know Basel makes Miami the place to be this month. The name CasaCor might be less familiar. Originating in Brazil, the roving design showhouse takes over urban spaces to create imaginative interiors by leading creatives. Now in its second Stateside edition, CasaCor Miami brings together an international cast of 18 designers and eight artists from the United States, Latin America, and Europe to highlight uniquely elevated visions of modern living. It’s the design person’s version of exercise: a stroll through 25,000 square feet (including a garden area) perusing interiors and furniture, chatting with the designers, and fantasizing about next moves. NOVEMBER 30–DECEMBER 16 CASACORMIAMI.COM…

entering culinary narnia

Matt Orlando has been in some great kitchens. The chef-owner of Amass in Copenhagen worked at Le Bernardin, Per Se, Fat Duck, and Noma before opening his own place. But when he arrived at the Michelin three-star Restaurant at Meadowood to cook at its 12 Days of Christmas, he was in awe. “It was like walking into Narnia,” he said. Now you can experience the wonder of one of the country’s premiere dining events. International chefs including Jessica Largey, Dave Pynt, and Ana Roš, among others, will take turns joining Christopher Kostow in Napa to create tasting menus over 12 nights in December. Reserve your tickets at; it’s $350 for the main dining room and $750 a seat at the chef’s counter inside the kitchen. DECEMBER 7–22 THERESTAURANTATMEADOWOOD.COM…

vip suv

Rolls-Royce’s iconic Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament has long fronted the fleets of the social elite on forays to the country club or vacation villa. But the winged woman’s pristine appearance now gets grimy on her perch atop the luxury marque’s new Cullinan sport utility vehicle—and she’s looking good. Sitting on the same structural architecture as the flagship Phantom, the 563 hp all-terrain transport features a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V-12, all-wheel steering, and self-leveling air suspension to ensure wafting through the wilderness. And if you order one now, you’ll be off-roading in refinement this summer. FIRST DELIVERIES BEGIN AFTER THE NEW YEAR. ROLLS-ROYCEMOTORCARS.COM…
