Hudson Furniture

Winter White

Sometimes clients are not able to complete a project all at once. In such cases, I prefer to get all the architecture and backdrops right first, and then I introduce finishing pieces when the client is ready. In this way, I am able establish the overall tone and gesture of a space with some degree of “completeness” all along the way, while creating a physical context upon which to find or manufacture the definitive crowing elements. For the Luxe / Minimal project that I shared with you in November, I recently found the perfect piece at Hudson Furniture – an incredibly handsome console table realized in reclaimed Claro walnut and plexi glass – Eco-chic! (well, at least partially). Above this console will hang a fantastic Mary Henry painting to complete the effect. Will post more on this when the elements are all in place.

I was feeling the need to brighten a rather dreary New York City winter day. Nothing can do that better than the impossibly crisp, bright, look of an all white ensemble. I am wearing a wide wale ivory corduroy jacket over an ivory cashmere turtleneck sweater both by Gucci, white skinny jeans by Diesel, and silver leather sneakers and sunglasses by Dior.

The Remarkable Chandelier

I recently went to visit the very stylish Barlas Baylar at his gallery Hudson Furniture in the meatpacking district. I was blown away by his “Atlantis” chandelier – this striking reinvention of a classic chandelier with its jewelry quality nickle chain draped over a polished nickle frame is – Genius! I can’t wait to use this remarkable piece.

Here I am standing in front of the “Atlantis” chandelier wearing an aubergine velvet peaked lapel jacket by Gucci, Tom Ford lavender cotton shirt with contrast white collar , vintage moonstone cuff links from Ralph Lauren, lavender glenn plaid pocket square by Tom Ford, grey wool flannel pant by Gucci, silver chain link belt by Gucci, black python “Playboy” loafers and a black leather tote bag by Gucci, sunglasses are by Dior.
