Oberto Gili

House
Photographer Oberto Gili is a charming, if restless, man. During our interview at his wonderfully quirky West Village brownstone he smoked incessantly, picked at a loaf of crusty Italian bread and hopped around as we bantered about everything from the importance of curiosity to his Italian mother. His current project, “Home Sweet Home” (Rizzo... READ MORE

Ultra Violet

House
12.10.01: We went over to visit Ultra Violet at her penthouse on the Upper East Side. As you can see, her front lawn is the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and she looks across to Central Park West, and north to the New Jersey Palisades, and south to all the rest of Manhattan and Staten Island […]...

Sarah Story

House
And so to designer Sarah Story, Texan by way of Japan, Singapore and California, and living proof of all the contradictions therein. Much of her design work is by inspired by the aesthetic of the Far East but her laugh … oh the laugh, it stopped us in our tracks … is it inspired by […]... READ MORE

Vicente Wolf

House
We were shown in to Vicente Wolf’s loft apartment in the Garment District by his housekeeper and then encouraged to wander … we just turned to each other and said ‘I could move in immediately!’ How easy this interview was going to be with someone whose design sensibility resonated with our own taste! So it […]... READ MORE

Thomas Cary

House
We confess that we got a bit giggly in this apartment … a sense of the absurd quickly took over as we sidled in and then realized that the tiny, crammed spaces just couldn’t accommodate us with our handbags: we had to leave them outside the front door. Actually, it couldn’t really accommodate us without […]... READ MORE

Amanda Nisbet

House
In this interview you will see [laughs] in almost every reply – perhaps there was a bit of nervous laughter because designer, Amanda Nisbet was a bit worried about her tendency to be unguarded but mostly it is because she really is a person who likes to laugh and whose rooms are colorful, cheerful and […]...

Campion Platt

House
At first the architect and designer, Campion Platt seemed to want to hide behind long, brainy answers to our questions (we cut quite a lot of them) but he loosened up and he’s such a nice man—has an endearing love of dark chocolate and thriller movies, created the most gorgeous non-saccharine pink bedroom in New […]...

Eric Cohler

House
Interior designer Eric Cohler, was a bit frazzled when he opened the door of his apartment. Two beautiful Standard Poodle puppies had arrived the previous day and he had spent much of the night getting them used to their new home. Mind you, he bounced back so quickly that I realized this is a man […]... READ MORE

Kathryn Scott

House
Designer Kathryn Scott’s stunning brownstone in Brooklyn Heights rather silenced us with its perfection, combining Asian influences with antiques from Kathryn’s family and art by both her and her artist husband, Wenda Gu. They are both organized and thorough to a point that fascinated us. Kathryn physically learned how to do various skills such... READ MORE

Miles Redd

House
So we’re going to be talking more about you in this interview, rather than about design. We’re not going to ask you so much about whether or not you like furniture on the diagonal. You know, there are no absolutes … although there are certain things that I hate like glass tops on skirted tables […]... READ MORE

Thomas Jayne

House
This was really worth the five-floor walk-up! Why all the skulls and books about cemeteries – what do they tell you? I’ve always been interested in ritual and monuments and that’s how I got interested in these things. It’s one area that makes people different from animals because [people] bury their dead and there’s ceremony […]... READ MORE
