Carla Fernandez for Ballroom Marfa/T, The New York Times

When the West Texas contemporary art foundation Ballroom Marfa held its annual summer party at the Bridgehampton, N.Y., home of co-founder Virginia Lebermann last month, guests were greeted by a long table set in a grove of tulip trees. A dinner of Mexican-inspired dishes by the chef Yann Nury was served on and alongside tableware and décor created by the Mexico City-based fashion designer and artist Carla Fernández in collaboration with Mexican artisans. The collection is now being sold to benefit Ballroom Marfa. A setting for four people includes clay plates in a mottled black finish, speckled ceramic cups, wooden napkin...

Mestiz showroom in San Miguel/T List, The New York Times

Last month, the architect and designer Daniel Valero opened a showroom off an alleyway in San Miguel de Allende’s Centro neighborhood, filling it with exuberant pieces inspired by Mexico’s artisans and natural surroundings. A red triangular table, set with spiky ceramic bowls, sits under a bendy fuchsia wicker lamp. Born in Saltillo, Mexico, Valero studied architecture at Tecnológico de Monterrey and earned a master’s degree in textile design from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris before founding his company, Mestiz, in 2015. When Valero collaborates with craftspeople, he adheres to their traditional techniques. “I try to use...

St. Regis Kanai, Rima Suqi
St. Regis Kanai review in Conde Nast Traveler

Luxurious beachfront properties are not rare in this region of Mexico, but St. Regis Kanai boasts innovative architecture by Edmonds International—inspired by the constellation Pleiades—with curvaceous buildings that literally hover above a seemingly endless sea of lush green mangroves. Each of the 124 rooms and 19 suites offers views of the Caribbean; this particular stretch of the sea boasts the region’s largest undisturbed coral reef. If beach isn’t your thing, there are countless pools on property, including one specifically for families, several in the spa, and sort of hidden one at the sports bar, as well as half a dozen...

Houses & Parties “Eggleston Cabaret” in T/The New York Times

“I thought this was a good opportunity to have a festive, ‘come on shake your body, baby, do the conga’ summer tablescape,” says Rebecca Gardner of Eggleston Cabaret, a line of decorative accessories — napkins, a tablecloth and a lampshade — she created with fabrics from Electra Eggleston, a textile company run by Andra Eggleston, daughter of the photographer William Eggleston. Gardner, an event and interior designer who has an online shop called Houses & Parties, has long been a fan of Eggleston’s fabrics, printed in Monroe, N.C., on Belgian linen and in Glarus, Switzerland, on Irish linen. She is...

Culture Object gallery in Sotheby’s Reside

To visit Culture Object’s gallery in Manhattan’s Garment District, whose premises were previously storage space for street vendors’ carts, is to experience a full range of emotions. It starts with confusion, followed by surprise, awe and (depending on one’s powers of concentration) alternating levels of distraction. It's such a great space and interesting program and you can read the whole article here....

Donald Judd x Puiforcat/Galerie

Donald Judd is an artist generally associated with strict rectilinear forms, from his iconic milled aluminum boxes permanently installed at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, to his austere furniture designs realized in wood. Now, 29 years after his death, he’s finally throwing the world a curve: a collection of eight sterling silver tableware pieces, all circular forms, created by venerable French silversmith Puiforcat. These pieces - dinner, salad, soup, bread and dessert plates as well as a cup and large serving bowl - are just a small selection from a full set of dinnerware that Judd designed in 1989....

Alice Liechtenstein, Rima Suqi, Schloss Hollenegg
Schloss Hollenegg for Galerie Magazine

A stately medieval castle in southern Austria may seem an unlikely destination for the international design set, yet Schloss Hollenegg has become just that. Located less than three hours south of Vienna in the small (population 2,000) village of Hollenegg, the 21,000-square-foot, 52-room living museum of sorts hosts a residency program and annual themed exhibition curated by ascending design world darling Alice Stori Liechtenstein. Born in Milan and raised in Bologna, Liechtenstein, who holds a master’s degree in design from Barcelona’s Elisava School of Design, moved to Austria in the early aughts after meeting her now-husband, Alfred. The castle had been...
