Kendall Wilkinson Summer 2013 Store Vignette




Kendall Wilkinson’s homage to America’s cup continues in the second phase of our summer vignette. The look is cool, crisp and serene featuring two chrome and white chairs in the style of Milo Baughman, a vintage etched Lucite coffee table, and various accents in chrome and polished nickel.
This month we’re featuring the stunning work of Louise LeBourgeois. Her photo-realistic waterscape Water: Tempest #506 showcases masterful brushwork in an oil on panel piece that is both peaceful and moody, the perfect addition to a vignette inspired by San Francisco summer and the greatest sailing race in the world!

Nature

February 21, 2013


Hope you enjoy this guest blog post from Jennifer Orne, a Senior Designer at my firm. Love her perspective on nature and how it inspires design!
Working with the landscape and not “making a mark” on nature is the point of Andy Goldsworthy’s work. I have been obsessed with his ingenious approach to sculpture and photography for years. Creating forms from natural materials such as stones, sticks, leaves, snow, and ice; these outdoor sculptures temporarily survive and then eventually disappear due to the whims of nature.

Our “Seal” of Approval

Jon Freeman Custom Intaglios

Ok, we admit it. We are in love with these custom Intaglios made by local artist, Jon Freeman. Antique Greek and Roman seals are artfully mounted on silk and displayed in museum quality, hand carved frames in Gesso and gilt. Their classic look makes them versatile enough for strictly traditional spaces or more contemporary designs. Either way, we’ll help select a silk color and arrange a vignette that perfectly suits the interior at hand.
