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...

Damon Crane, Rima Suqi, Culture Object, Sothebys
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....

Rima Suqi, Donald Judd, Puiforcat
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...

Alfredo Paredes, Rima Suqi, Orior
Q+A with Alfredo Paredes for Orior

The best part of any interview is the surprise. If there is one. And there almost always is. The surprise with Alfredo Paredes came with the "do you have any ties to Ireland" question. And it turns out that he's actually Irish, and the way that was figured out is insane. Read it here....

Scott Pask, Rima Suqi, Hemispheres magazine
Scott Pask profiled in Hemispheres/United Airlines magazine

I'm obsessed with set designers, production designers, and the like - they're some of my favorite people to interview, and I've been lucky to interview quite a few. The latest is Scott Pask, the Tony award-winning set designer, who hails from Yuma, AZ and originally studied architecture. Super fascinating and obviously super talented. I interviewed him for Hemispheres....
