James Andrew viewing works by Eduardo Garza
Extasis - rock crystal matrix and gold by Eduardo Garza
I’m a huge admirer of the fantasy genre and the work of designers like Tony Duquette, and Serge Roche. These highly imaginative designers created magnificent works that took their inspiration from the Natural, creating the most exquisitely fantastical pieces. My dear friend, the brilliant designer Eduardo Garza
has given his own take on this genre, embellishing nature just enough to enhance and highlight its beauty. His inspiration often comes to him in his dreams, says Garza, – which happily for us, he translates to the waking world with an ultra chic classic/contemporary aesthetic. Needless to say you can almost always find a fabtastic Garza piece in a James Andrew interior. Besides his collection of decorative objects, he also produces furniture, mirrors, tabletops and hardware, and in the unlikely case that you are not finding just what you need his talents are available for private commission, (I myself will be working with Garza to create a spectacular chandelier!). Garza also has a line of jewelry, which has won high praise from style makers and that pinnacle of taste, Vogue magazine, which recently called Garza’s work “divine” (see article
). Many of his fine pieces are available at Bergdorf Goodman here in New York City and at Harrod’s in London. I met with Eduardo recently at Berdorf Goodman’s sensational 7th floor to have a look at a sampling of some of his spectacular work, and have included some treasures here for your enjoyment.
