Farewell: Pierre Paulin

. Thursday, June 18, 2009

"We were sad to hear that Pierre Paulin died this Saturday at the age of 81 in Montpellier, south-east of France. He will remain in all our memories as one of the major French designers of the 20th century. He leaves us with great classics, most of them produced by the Dutch company Artifort - 'the Tongue', 'the Ribbon', 'the Oyster' and many others."

Spaces: David Scott's 13 week renovation in New York


"....the complete gut renovation took only 13 weeks from demo to move-in...."

This rich interior includes some rather impressive pieces, including a blue velvet T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings lounge and ottoman for Widdicomb; Gerald Thurston brass floor lamp for Lightolier; a Paul McCobb credenza in travertine, mahogany, and brass; a sculptural Phillip Lloyd Powell coffee table in walnut, gold leaf, and slate; Paul McCobb Planner Group dining chairs; and a lacquered desk chair which I believe is by Guglielmo Ulrich.

Spaces: Jon Liu + Laura Rule: London

. Friday, June 12, 2009

Todd Selby visits the home of hairstylist Jon Liu and Laura Rule, art director for Another Magazine. Their collection includes a vintage deco teak bar cabinet, various vintage 70s modernist lamps, a Mark Gonzales "The Priest" Sculpture, "Joy Division" and "Blue Monday" Peter Saville commissioned skateboard decks by Supreme, and a Terry Richardson commissioned calendar also for Supreme. But it is Laura's incredible shoe collection that takes the cake.

"Jon and Laura have one of the best cars in the East End of London, a Ford Capri 1600 GT in a beautiful pearlescent baby blue. Laura also has one of the craziest shoe collections I have ever seen. She has a pair of boots from Tom Ford's last collection at Gucci, the Eiffel Tower YSL shoes and so many more.

Their home is in a refurbished factory space, there is a large open area with one private room. That room used to be their bedroom, but now it is filled with shoes! Until Laura pulled out the shoes for this shoot I do not think Jon had realized how extensive her shoe collection really was."
