beauty will save the world

A cabinet of curiosities is not a piece of furniture. I was alarmed I had to explain this to someone at the beginning of this year, as we planned building the series of wondrous rooms that would be the highlight of the AD Design Show and the subject of this issue. Fortunately, the AD team knew what I meant, immediately working on mood boards of mirrored infinity rooms, wabisabi courtyards and secret doorways. When I travelled to Chennai to ask the master embroiderer Jean-François Lesage to curate the space for us, one of his first questions was, “Can we have wild animals?” Oh, he understood perfectly. It’s a curious thing that one of the world’s most important names in fashion and interiors lives discreetly on a sleepy aristocratic estate between Chennai…

’tis the season

To ring in the festive cheer and celebrate the last issue of the year, AD invited two creative minds to imagine a Christmas wreath for the season. Floral designer Nazneen Jehangir—founder of Libellule, a floral boutique agency—walked into the AD office with her bag full of ingredients, and master embroiderer Maximiliano Modesti with his fine set of ideas. From the get-go, with an almost-carte blanche brief, the duo instantly knew that they wanted the wreath to be contextual and contemporary and rooted in an Indian aesthetic. “We wanted to create something that would capture the essence of Christmas in India,” says Jehangir. “The initial idea got me thinking about how so many of us celebrate a very non-denominational Christmas, almost perched between two cultures. Christmas, to me, is also about food…

paper route

It’s not uncommon for the fashion and home decor to cross paths. For decades now, designers have been blurring the line between the two in ever more alluring ways. Recently, fashion designer Payal Singhal known for her contemporary bridal wear has channelled her aesthetic sensibility—synonymous with pop colours and quirky prints—into home decor with her first collaborative collection with wallpaper giant Marshalls. Charming patterns and a kaleidoscope of colours are at the core of the capsule collection, which comprises eight designs in three to four colour options each. “A lot of times, we would use our prints as wallcovering for our stalls and people would ask if they could buy them as wallpaper. The idea was in my head ever since we started doing prints, that eventually these could be translated…

king carlos

A man with a strong, self-professed “appetite for beautiful things”, Carlos Mota might be able to brook a lot of things in life, but a lack of bravado in using colour in almost everything that surrounds him doesn’t make that list. The former style editor for Architectural Digest and an editor-at-large for Elle Decor, Mota has always had an affair with colour. Every detail of his life—from the editorial campaigns he directs, to the gleaming silk shag carpets peppered across his Chelsea apartment—hint at the depths to which dazzling colours percolate through his life—an obsession that is beautifully captured in his latest book, Beige Is Not A Color, published by Vendome Press. “The idea for this book was hovering at the back of my mind for a very long time. I…

too good

The idea of Doodles, a collection of six rugs created by cc-tapis, was sparked when the cc-tapis team chanced upon a doodle-like collage by Faye Toogood at the artist’s studio in London. This textile collage—created with fabric scraps, thread and a canvas splashed with watercolours—was one of the many freewheeling experiments Toogood has busied herself with lately. In between projects, she often finds herself tinkering with models, maquettes and paintings, hunting for a fresh new visual language. When cc-tapis picked up her collage to use as a springboard for a rug design, Toogood created five more to complete the series. Instead of using it as a point of reference for the final design, the Milanese rug maker focused on translating the textures and materiality of the collages into the rugs. In…
